"It's the Aurora Flare, last stop Redhurne."
―An Imperial officer, to Admiral Meori[src]

The Redhurne system was a star system orbiting a post-nova white star located in the Mid Rim region of the galaxy. Because of the supernova explosion in the system's past, all of the planets in the system were dedicated wastelands, devoid of life. Radiation from the system's star formed the building blocks of hypermatter on the exposed core of Redhurne which Imperial drones collected for use in the Imperial Navy.[1]

In 1 ABY,[3] the Aurora Flare, an MC80 Star Cruiser, stopped in the Redhurne system to collect a load of coaxium before traveling to Mon Cala.[2]

In 3 ABY,[4] the Alliance's Sixty-First Mobile Infantry, better known as Twilight Company, launched a boarded an Imperial heavy freighter before it could leave the system. The freighter was carried supplies that the company to repair their CR90 corvette, the Thunderstrike. The raid lured in the support of an Imperial Gozanti-class cruiser which forced the rebels to hasten their withdrawal from the heavy freighter. The Thunderstrike and its escort, the Braha'tok-class gunship Apailana's Promise ultimately escaped with the supplies.[1]

Behind the scenesEdit

The Redhurne system first appeared in the 2015 novel Battlefront: Twilight Company, written by Alexander Freed.[1]


Notes and referencesEdit

  1. 1.0 1.1 1.2 1.3 1.4 1.5 1.6 Battlefront: Twilight Company
  2. 2.0 2.1 Star Wars 49
  3. In Star Wars 43 Trios said that "the Imperials were weaker than they have been for twenty years," meaning Star Wars 49, where the Aurora Flare appears, must take place at least twenty years after the formation of the Galactic Empire, which Star Wars: Galactic Atlas dates to 19 BBY. This means the Aurora Flare's appearance takes place no earlier than 1 ABY. Since this issue is also set before the Assault on the Mako-Ta Space Docks, which took place in 1 ABY as Ultimate Star Wars, New Edition dates it one year after the mission to steal the Death Star plans—which takes place in 0 BBY according to Star Wars: Galactic Atlas. The Aurora Flare's appearance therefore must have occurred in 1 ABY.
  4. The section of Battlefront: Twilight Company involving the Redhurne system is set 22 years after the Clone Wars, which ended in 19 BBY, according to Star Wars: Galactic Atlas. The events involving the Redhurne system must have therefore occurred in 3 ABY.
