"On the Admiralty's counsel, the navy is now redirecting resources from as far away as Rothana and Bothawui."
Harus Ison[src]

Rothana was an ice planet located in the galaxy's Outer Rim Territories.[1] 800 years before the Battle of Yavin, the planet was sold to the starship manufacturer Kuat Drive Yards, leading to the establishment of Rothana Heavy Engineering as a subsidiary.[4] It was home to shipyards controlled by the Galactic Empire.[2] In 14 BBY, ships stationed at Rothana were deployed by the Imperial Navy to other locations that were considered to be potential targets of Berch Teller and his rebel group.[5] The Empire largely abandoned their shipyards in preparation for the Battle of Jakku near the end of the Galactic Civil War, allowing a group of pro-Imperial sympathizers to attempt to steal the craft a year later.[2]
