The Minos Cluster (pronounced /'maɪ.nʊs/) was a star cluster and sector located within the Outer Rim region of the galaxy. Over 70 planets within the cluster were suitable for life including Haven, Karideph, Onadax, Adarlon, Eliad, Gesaril, Pergitor, Quockra-4, Shesharile, Teh'Jar II, and Yelsain. The cluster also included the Mestra and Travnin systems.

History[]

In 3653 BBY, the Sith Empire's offensive against the Galactic Republic in the Minos Cluster ended, according to a report given to the Galactic Senate just before the Sacking of Coruscant.[4]

Under the Galactic Empire, the Minos Cluster was treated as a sector, with a Moff based on Travnin serving as its governor; however the sector fleet that was assigned to the cluster was small, centered around a single aging Victory I-class Star Destroyer, The Chariot. It had a reputation as being a good place for those on the run from the Empire to hide.

Tri-Nebula Entertainment was based in the Minos Cluster.[5] Babel Torsch was the head of the Imperial Customs office for the cluster.

During the Galactic Civil War, the moon Haven served as the site of the Rebel Alliance's primary resistance center in the Minos Cluster.[6]

Behind the scenes[]

The Minos Cluster was introduced in the 1990 sourcebook Galaxy Guide 6: Tramp Freighters, authored by Mark Rein-Hagen and Stewart Wieck and published for use with West End Games' Star Wars: The Roleplaying Game.[7] The cluster later made its first appearance in the 1993 roleplaying adventure "Parts is Parts," written by Wallace D. Greer for use with Star Wars: The Roleplaying Game and published in the sixty-eighth issue of the Challenge magazine. Since the article was released outside of the Lucas Licensing process, its canonicity with respect to the Star Wars Legends continuity was never confirmed.[8]

The first appearance of the star cluster in a canonical source within the Legends continuity was in "Lumrunners," a short story authored by John Beyer and Wayne Humfleet and published in the ninth issue of the Star Wars Adventure Journal magazine on February 1996.[9] In 2008, The Complete Star Wars Encyclopedia established that the events of[6] the closing scenes of the 1980 original trilogy film, Star Wars: Episode V The Empire Strikes Back,[10] took place in the Minos Cluster, thereby establishing that film as the cluster's de facto first appearance.[6]
