The Kwilaan Starport was a spaceport in the city of Keren on the Mid Rim planet of Naboo. It was the largest facility of its kind in the Mid Rim and was used by many travelers. The port was larger than the Theed Spaceport, which had been built in Naboo's capital city of Theed between 32 BBY and 22 BBY. Shuttles and repulsorlift transports from the Kwilaan Starport took individuals to Theed's spaceport. The Starport shared its name with Kwilaan, a human who discovered Naboo.
Behind the scenes
The Kwilaan Starport was mentioned in the new Star Wars canon in "Naboo," an issue of Altaya's Star Wars Encyclopedia published on December 16, 2020. The Kwilaan Starport originated in the Star Wars Legends continuity, where it was first mentioned in Secrets of Naboo, a 2001 Wizards of the Coast sourcebook published for use with the Star Wars Roleplaying Game. It then made its first appearance in the 2003 massively multiplayer online role-playing video game Star Wars Galaxies.
Notes and references
- "Naboo" – Star Wars Encyclopedia
- The portion of Star Wars: Complete Locations that covers the locations of Star Wars: Episode II Attack of the Clones states that the Theed Spaceport was built after the Battle of Naboo, dated to 32 BBY by Star Wars: Galactic Atlas. Since Galactic Atlas dates the events of Attack of the Clones to 22 BBY, the spaceport must have been built between those two years.
