An Imperial base was constructed during the Imperial expansion on the planet Nevarro. After the fall of the Galactic Empire, the base came under the control of Gideon's Imperial remnant. Built into the side of a cliff overlooking a canyon, the base had a landing pad as well as several vehicles, including four Outland TIE fighters, a Trexler Marauder, and multiple 74-Z speeder bikes.
Behind the scenes[edit | edit source]
- "The interior is pretty standard Imperial design language. But the outside platform and structure is based on the Eadu base from Rogue One."
- ―Phil Szostak, on Twitter
The Imperial base appeared in "Chapter 12: The Siege" of Jon Favreau's Disney+ series The Mandalorian, directed by Carl Weathers and released on November 20 2020. Phil Szostak, a Lucasfilm Ltd. creative art manager and author, stated on his Twitter account that the Nevarro base's outside platform was based on the Eadu base from the 2016 film Rogue One: A Star Wars Story while the interior followed the standard Imperial designs used in the Star Wars franchise.

Notes and references[edit | edit source]
- The Mandalorian – "Chapter 12: The Siege"
- The Mandalorian is set about five years after the events of Star Wars: Episode VI Return of the Jedi, which Star Wars: Galactic Atlas dates to 4 ABY. Therefore, the events of "Chapter 12: The Siege," including the destruction of the base, must have taken place around 9 ABY. establishes that
- (In response to "@PhilSzostak Do you know if the design of the Imperial base in the new Mando episode is based on the opening level of Jedi Outcast? It reminded me a lot of it last night.")
