This article is about the Inner Rim planet. You may be looking for Mindori, a mining settlement on Kallistas.

Mindor, also known as Taspan I, was a planet in the Inner Rim with vast landmasses covered in grasslands. It had little to offer the galactic community other than its landmasses, which would have been ideal for farming. Mindor had four medium sized moons in very close proximity to the planet.


In the year 3680 BBY,[2] Fideltin Rusk was born to a pair of Chagrians who lived in a colony of pacifists[3] on Mindor.[2]

During the Cold War between the Galactic Republic and the Sith Empire, patrol droids of Mindor's government were presumably sabotaged due to the fact that they have ignored orders and went astray.[4]

In 5.5 ABY, General Luke Skywalker and Fenn Shysa's Mandalorian Protectors fought the forces of Lord Shadowspawn to the last man on the battlefields of this world. The battle devastated the planet, and the extreme loss of life convinced Skywalker to resign his commission.[5]

Leia Organa and Han Solo were also on the planet at the time, and shared a stale meal on the field after the battle, surrounded by dead stormtroopers. Han Solo later recalled the harsh battle when he kidnapped Leia shortly before their wedding.[6]

Behind the scenesEdit

"Oh, sure, Mindor, whatever. Who cares, anyway? If I want to call it Mindar, who's gonna argue? You? How about you, Princess?"
―Han Solo, to Chewbacca and Leia Organa[src]

In The Courtship of Princess Leia, Mindor is misspelled as "Mindar." Leland Chee stated on February 23, 2007 in the "Welcome some BCaT VIPs" thread on the message boards that Mindar is to be treated as a misspelling of Mindor, as all other sources at the time spell the planet's name with an 'o'.[7]

This misspelling is given a canonical backing in Luke Skywalker and the Shadows of Mindor, when at one point Han refers to the planet as "Mindar" and Chewbacca corrects him, prompting Han to retort that he'll call the planet what he likes.

The PC game Star Wars: Rebellion mistakenly places Mindor in the Kanchen sector, which is actually located in the Core Worlds. Star Wars: Rebellion also misspells the planet as "Mindar."
