Pallaxides was a private planet owned by TaggeCo where starships were not supposed to come without an express invitation. Used as a resort world, TaggeCo took its privacy seriously, even to the extent of ignoring distress calls. The planet was constantly guarded by three IPV-1 System Patrol Craft which escorted all incoming civilian ships.
After the bombing of Syndaar Military Prep School by the Ho'Din terrorist Ort Hoogra-D'En, System Sub-Commander Jared Brojtal went to Pallaxides with the Carrack-class light cruiser Marduk to seek revenge for the death of his son. He found Hoogra-D'en's base, which was defended by Aqualish mercenaries and spore bombs, and attacked it with TIE/LN starfighters and TIE/rc starfighters. During the attack, Hoogra-D'En planned to use the Gymsnor-3 light freighter Batattis to escape, using two fleeing YT-1300 light freighters as decoys.
Pallaxides had a number of large predators but none were considered a threat to travelers. However, several dangerous off-world animals, such as shredder bats and zuxu, were imported for the sporting interests of TaggeCo executives. Their introduction was made without regard to the possible long-term ecological effects.
