"Now there are ships all over my lake!"
―Maz Kanata on the arrival of Imperial forces over Nymeve Lake[src]

Nymeve Lake[1] was a freshwater lake on the planet Takodana. On its shoreline rested an ancient castle run by the pirate Maz Kanata, who had a parapet overlooking the lake.[2] An Imperial light cruiser once crashed into the lake after being critically damaged in a battle with New Republic starfighters.[3]

In the 2015 film Star Wars: Episode VII The Force Awakens, the Millennium Falcon is piloted over Nymeve Lake as it approaches Maz Kanata's castle. Here, the lake pictured is taken from footage of Derwent Water of the Lake District, in the northwest of England.[4]
