"There is a den of Selonians just outside Nashal."
Agent Taarna, to a spacer[src]

A cave located on the planet Talus was inhabited by the Selonians of the Neetha Den during the Galactic Civil War.

History[edit | edit source]

"The Askura deal was proposed by a den mate that precipitated the smugglers' exploitation of our den. It allowed a group of our mates to be taken prisoner and held as hostages to get us to mine for the smugglers."
―The Neetha den mother, to a spacer[src]

The cave was located near the city of Nashal, on the planet Talus of the Corellian system. During the Galactic Civil War, it was inhabited by the Selonians of the Neetha Den,[1] including the Neetha den mother,[2] the sept Kiki Dorente, advisor to the den mother,[1] Tika Sileste,[3] Ravi Thienta,[4] and Lika Fimente.[5]

The cave was located near the base of the Talusian Smugglers.[6] After the Battle of Yavin, several Selonians of the Neetha Den were captured by the smugglers and kept as hostages in order to force the rest of the den into mining for them.[7] Smuggler guards also occupied the cave in order to watch for the Selonians.[6]

Circa 1 ABY,[8] the Corellian Security Force was aware of the situation but was unable to intervene in Selonians matters. Agent Taarna thus recruited an independent spacer in order to help the Seloninans without involving the CorSec.[7] The spacer therefore assaulted the smuggler base. Although the spacer eventually discovered that the captive Selonians had already been sold as slaves,[5] the raid severely weakened the smugglers and crippled their ability to exploit the Selonians.[4][2][3]

Behind the scenes[edit | edit source]

The cave of the Neetha Den appeared in the 2003 video game Star Wars Galaxies, a massively multiplayer online role-playing game developed by Sony Online Entertainment and published by LucasArts,[1] prior to its closure on December 15, 2011.[9] The cave was added to the game with the update named "Chapter 1: The Corellian Captives", published on June 8, 2006.[10]
