- "Stand-by alert. Death Star approaching. Estimated time to firing range, fifteen minutes."
- ―Intercom broadcast in the War Room
The Strategy Center, formerly known as the War Room, was a communications and planning center of the Rebel Alliance on the fourth moon of Yavin. Located in the center of the second level of the Great Temple, the War Room resided directly below the main command center.
During the Battle of Yavin, General Jan Dodonna, Princess Leia Organa, and C-3PO gathered in the War Room. From within, they listened to the communications between pilots as the battle unfolded around the Death Star.
The War Room was briefly attacked and occupied by Imperial forces during the Empire's Attack on Yavin 4, but they were defeated by then-Commander Skywalker and Wedge Antilles of Red Squadron, when trying to reach General Dodonna and surviving Rebel personnel in Yavin Base.
