- "I met with Colonel Jev on Nieuth Four."
- ―Personal addendum by General Airen Cracken to a datafile detailing Rebel Alliance operatives
Nieuth Four was a terrestrial astronomical object located in the Nieuth system, a part of the Wyloff sector in the Northern Dependencies portion of the Colonies. At some point by the time the Battle of Yavin was fought, the Rebel Alliance operative and Imperial defector Colonel Vin Northal contacted Colonel Ilo Jev, the commanding officer of the Wyloff sector Imperial Intelligence ExComm facility, who was on leave at the time.
Through Northal, a meeting was arranged between Jev and Alliance General Airen Cracken. As a result of the meeting, which took place on Nieuth Four, Jev began to provide the Alliance with strategic information from his ExComm facility. Cracken subsequently mentioned the meeting on Nieuth Four in a personal addendum to a datafile detailing Rebel operatives.
Behind the scenes[edit | edit source]
Nieuth Four was created by David R. Tulo, Jr. and was introduced in Cracken's Rebel Operatives, a 1994 West End Games sourcebook published for use with Star Wars: The Roleplaying Game. The 2009 reference book The Essential Atlas placed the Nieuth system, and therefore Nieuth Four, in grid square L-8.
