Description[edit | edit source]
The pirate base was located east of the city of Mos Eisley on the planet Tatooine. Occupied by a band of criminals known as the Sand slum pirates and their pirate leader, the base consisted of several underground levels, with its interior resembling the design of Imperial Tactical Centers.[source?] Indeed, the interior of the base consisted of at least a couple banners emblazoned with the crest of the Galactic Empire, indicating that the base was once under the control of Imperial forces.
History[edit | edit source]
- "Somewhere on this deserty planet, strife between ranchers and pirates rages on. Seek them out, choose the correct path, and the Mark of Honor shall be bestowed upon you."
- ―The hermit, to a spacer
Sometime following the Battle of Yavin in 0 BBY, the pirates harassed the farmers Roric and Helen Goldenfield who lived in the neighboring ranch. Circa 1 ABY, a spacer pinned down and attacked the pirate leader at the bottom-most level of the base. However, the spacer spared the pirate's life after he surrendered. For the spacer's part in diffusing tensions between the pirates and the local moisture farmers, the spacer was awarded with the Mark of Honor.
