Nakadia was an agricultural planet in the Expansion Region located just off of the Rimma Trade Route and the homeworld of the Nakadian species. In 3 ABY, Twilight Company destroyed the planet's plastoid factories, where farm crops were made into armor-grade polymers and synthetic resins. In 5 ABY, Nakadia served as the headquarters of the Galactic Senate and galactic capital of the New Republic.

Description[]

Nakadia was an agricultural world[3] located in the Expansion Region, just off of the Rimma Trade Route, at the coordinates M-15 on the Standard Galactic Grid.[1] Much of its terrain was hills and had forests of neck-high stalks of leafy flora.[3] The planet had a unique soil composition that allowed it to grow a variety of vital crops,[2] including ones which could be processed into plastoid.[3] The planet was also the homeworld of the Nakadians, a sentient species. Due to its pristine environment, the planet was classified by the New Republic as a Class A protected planet. Restricted agricultural products like pta fruits were not allowed on Nakadia since they were considered invasive.[2]

History[]

Site of war[]

"We—you and your squad—destroyed enough biotoxin to save millions. Maybe more. But the Empire has been building its arsenal for decades. How much do you think is stored in dusty armories and warehouses across the galaxy? If I'd known there was any present on Nakadia, I might have chosen a different target. We'll be better prepared next time."
Everi Chalis, tactician behind Operation Ringbreaker, to Hazram Namir, on the bioweapons on Nakadia[3]

During the Clone Wars, Nakadia was occupied by the Confederacy of Independent Systems, which brought waves of battle droids. As a result, the native Nakadians developed a bias against droids. Despite accepting droids, they did not treat them as equal or as sentient.[2] By the time of the Galactic Civil War between the Galactic Empire and Rebel Alliance, Nakadia supported the Empire's war efforts[5] through its plastoid factories, which processed millions of tonnes of the planet's farm crops into armor-grade polymers and synthetic resins. A warehouse was also established to store some of the Empire's stockpile of bioweapons.[3]

In 3 ABY,[6] Nakadia was targeted by the Alliance's 61st Mobile Infantry, better known as Twilight Company, which sought to destroy the plastoid factories. The attack was part of Operation Ringbreaker, a campaign which involved the company attacking multiple Imperial logistical hubs to force redeployments from the Empire's Kuat Drive Yards, the final target. Twilight squads, led by the assumed Captain Hazram Namir, made covert strikes on the factories under the cover of night before retreating into the forests. However, the Empire deployed airspeeders equipped with bioweapons from the warehouse, which used the toxins to kill many rebel soldiers. After Twilight Company located the warehouse, Namir, wrapped heavily in protective gear, led a taskforce of over a dozen alien soldiers to the bioweapon stockpile and burned the place down.[3]

Twilight Company won its campaign on Nakadia not long after.[3] In the meantime, the Rebel Alliance Intelligence Service vetted Operation Ringbreaker, and General Crix Madine listed Nakadia among the targets in a report on the campaign's first phase. The report later came into the hands of archivist Hendri Underholt, who included it among a compilation of information called the The Rebel Files.[5]

New Republic capital[]

The New Republic, the successor to the Rebel Alliance, liberated Nakadia. Nakadia became a major exporter of food for New Republic troops. The Galactic Senate also passed a bill designating Nakadia as a Class A protected planet. Following the attack on Chandrila in 5 ABY, the New Republic relocated its capital to Nakadia for a year cycle. Chancellor Mon Mothma delayed a Senate re-vote on her resolution to intervene on Jakku by smuggling a pta fruit aboard Senator Tolwar Wartol's Ganoidian tri-deck cruiser. While customs searched Wartol's cruiser, a five-member team led by Sinjir Rath Velus and Han Solo foiled a conspiracy by the Black Sun and Red Key Raiders to prolong the war. Sinjir convinced five senators to change their vote in favor of Mothma's resolution, leading to the Battle of Jakku.[2]

Locations[]

Nakadia was home to many farms. It's cities and towns were small compared to other locations in the galaxy.[2] It also included plastoid factories which was supplied by the farms[3] and contributed to the Galactic Empire's war effort.[5] The Empire additionally kept a warehouse atop the planet's hills to store bioweapons, with a launchpad for airspeeders to be deployed with the toxins.[3] Nakadia's capital was Quarrow, which had a few thousand inhabitants. Notable locations included the Quarrow Senate house, the restaurant Izzik's, and a poma-club. Quarrow's fibercrete streets were designed for biological only and were unsuitable for droids, speeders, and machines. The planet also had a northernmost spaceport.[2]
