The Kinun Depot system was a star system located within the Outer Rim Territories' Pelgrin sector.[1] It contained the location known as Kinun Depot.[2][3]

At some point by 0 BBY,[4] the Rodian slaver Malak stopped at Kinun Depot to refuel. While there, Myo, an Abyssin previously captured by Malak, escaped the Rodian's starship[2] and booked passage to[5] the Arkanis sector planet[6] Tatooine.[5]

Behind the scenes[]

The Kinun Depot system was first mentioned in the 2009 reference book The Essential Atlas, authored by Jason Fry and Daniel Wallace, which placed it within grid square R-18.[6]

(backup link) Jason Fry, co-author of The Essential Atlas, stated his intention to create homeworlds for numerous species based on context implied from their names. Given this principle, this article makes a similar basic assumption for Kinun Depot in relation to the Kinun Depot system.
  4. Alliance Intelligence Reports states that Myo was present at Chalmun's Spaceport Cantina when Obi-Wan Kenobi and Luke Skywalker first met Han Solo, an event dated to 0 BBY by The New Essential Chronology. Therefore, it can be deduced that Myo traveled from Kinun Depot to Tatooine at some point by that date.
