A Sith observatory was constructed on a large asteroid in the Hebine Ring, an asteroid belt in the Beheboth system[1] of the Outer Rim Territories' Sanbra sector.[3] Built long before[1] 3643 BBY[2] by members of the Sith[1] tradition of Force-users,[4] the observatory contained a cache of star charts and made the Hebine Ring in general an important location to the Sith. The Hebine Ring's significance eventually came to be suggested by the designs in a certain relic.[1]

This section of the article assumes 100% game completion of Star Wars: The Old Republic. Any alternate stories may be noted in the "Behind the scenes" section. The events in this section may or may not have been confirmed as canon within the Star Wars Legends continuity.

Around 3643 BBY,[2] an individual affiliated with one of the sides in the ongoing struggle between the Galactic Republic and the reconstituted Sith Empire discerned that the relic pointed to the Hebine Ring and subsequently dispatched a companion to investigate the asteroid belt. The companion then discovered the observatory's remains and found the cache of star charts to be still intact.[1]

Behind the scenes[]

The Sith observatory was mentioned in the 2011 BioWare video game, Star Wars: The Old Republic.[1]

  2. 2.0 2.1 2.2 Per the reasoning here, Act I of Star Wars: The Old Republic takes place around 3643 BBY. Since players of The Old Republic can assign their companions on the mission "The Hebine Ring" independently of the main class storyline at any point during the game, the mission must take place at some point around 3643 BBY.
