"Everybody knows Palanhi. Little crossroads planet with an overblown idea of their own importance."
Han Solo[src]

Palanhi was a Colonies world that was located within the Fakir sector, situated on the Bakchou arm of the galaxy.


More of Palanhi's surface area was dry land than ocean; underwater volcanoes constantly produced new islands, but the continents themselves were quite stable.

During the Galactic Civil War it was home to an important central bank.[3]


"The investigators ran a check on all the accounts the bank served and discovered that there'd been a large transfer into Ackbar's account that same morning from the central bank on Palanhi."
Leia Organa Solo[src]

Palanhi joined the Galactic Republic early in its history, sometime between 25,000 BBY and 22,000 BBY, although it was outside of Republic space at the time.[2] During the Alsakan Conflicts, it supported Alsakan.[4]

Palanhi was the site of a battle won by the Republic during the Jedi Civil War.[2]

The planet didn't secede during the Clone Wars.[2] Late in the war, the planet was heavily contested until a Separatist victory was achieved due to the use of Scorpenek annihilator droids in combat.

The planet joined the New Republic sometime between 6 ABY and 7 ABY. It was a New Republic stronghold during the Hunt for Zsinj but was lost during the Thrawn campaign, in 9 ABY.[2] During the campaign, New Republic Admiral Ackbar was arrested after Imperial technicians transferred a large sum of money into Ackbar's account.[3] Later back under New Republic control, Palanhi was conquered before Operation Shadow Hand by the Imperial/Pentastar Alignment forces, in 10 ABY.[2] Grand Moff Ardus Kaine was killed over the planet shortly after, when his shuttle was ambushed by several New Republic E-wing fighters.[4]

Palanhi was invaded during the Yuuzhan Vong War. The planet was later part of Darth Krayt's Galactic Empire.[2]

Behind the scenesEdit

The PC game Star Wars: Rebellion mistakenly places the Fakir sector and, consequently, Palanhi, in the Galactic Core.

Star Wars: Rebellion: Prima's Official Strategy Guide misspells the planet as "Palanini."
