The Starship Graveyard, also known as the Graveyard of Giants or Graveyard of Ships, was a wide desert area on the planet Jakku that took its name because of the wreckage of "giant" ships accumulated on its dunes as a result of the Battle of Jakku.

One year after the Battle of Endor, the Galactic Empire and the New Republic fought a battle on Jakku, during which damaged starships of both factions crash landed on the terrain, littering the landscape with debris and dangerous volatiles like fuel and coolant.[2] Among the wreckage of huge warships were the Inflictor[5] and the Ravager.[6] Republic infantry attempted to strike a decisive attack against the Imperial forces defending their weapons facility.[7] In one section of the graveyard, the Crackle, the sandy terrain had been turned to glass from the heat of a crash.[4]

Pilot Taka Jamoreesa flew a Resistance transport through the graveyard at one point.[8] The 35 ABY[9] uprising against the First Order added at least one Resurgent-class Star Destroyer to the wreckage littering this area.[10]
