"'Executive shuttles' for senior officers and special envoys of the Ruling Council. Stored and resupplied in Najan-Rovi but built by the Corellian Engineering Corporation."
―Everi Chalis, in a briefing to the leaders of the 61st Mobile Infantry[1]

Najan-Rovi was a gas giant located around the Rimma Trade Route. Dockyards there housed starships for high-ranking figures within the Galactic Empire during the Galactic Civil War. In 3 ABY, the Rebel Alliance's 61st Mobile Infantry attacked the dockyards, deploying strike teams. The 61st left Najan-Rovi with almost a hundred burning vessels. Former Imperial governor Everi Chalis believed the attack would draw security from the Kuat Drive Yards and force the Corellian Engineering Corporation to increase ship production.


A gas giant located within the vicinity of the Rimma Trade Route, Najan-Rovi featured floating habitats for its residents and was home to some dockyards that could store and resupply starships.[1]


"Once they're destroyed, Corellia will need to increase its production; the officers must have their toys."
―Chalis discusses the motive of attacking the Najan-Rovi's dockyards[1]

Najan-Rovi became the target of the 61st Mobile Infantry (patch pictured) as part of Operation Ringbreaker.

During the Galactic Civil War,[1] Najan-Rovi contributed resources for the Galactic Empire's war effort.[2] Its dockyards serviced light freighters, luxury transports, and executive shuttles built by the Corellian Engineering Corporation and used by senior Imperial officers and special envoys of the Empire's ruling council.[1] In 3 ABY,[3] the Rebel Alliance's 61st Mobile Infantry targeted Najan-Rovi as part of its Operation Ringbreaker campaign. Attacking the dockyards, the 61st's CR90 corvette Thunderstrike delivered a payload of strike teams.[1]

The dockyards, only defended by Imperial Navy Troopers and a complement of TIE fighters, fell in less than a day, and the 61st left it with almost a hundred burning vessels. Everi Chalis, a former Imperial governor working with the rebel company, believed the attack would force the Corellian Engineering Corporation to increase ship production to replace the lost starships as well as coaxing a transfer in security from the Kuat Drive Yards, the ultimate target of Operation Ringbreaker.[1] Meanwhile, the Rebel Alliance Intelligence Service examined Operation Ringbreaker, with General Crix Madine listing Najan-Rovi in a report on the campaign's first phase. The report later came under the possession of archivist Hendri Underholt, who included it in a compilation of non-electronic documents titled The Rebel Files.[2]

Behind the scenes[]

Naja-Rovi first appeared in the 2015 novel Battlefront: Twilight Company, written by Alexander Freed.[1]
