The Subjugation of Sinton was one of the Galactic Empire's many military conquests against non-Human worlds. Upon subjugating the planet, the Empire conscripted Sinton's alien denizens into slave labor. Sulamar, a career military failure who falsely styled himself an Imperial general, claimed to have participated in Sinton's conquest.

The subjugation[edit | edit source]

At some point during its dominion of the galaxy, prior to the year 3 ABY,[1] the Galactic Empire[3] subjugated the[2] Mid Rim planet[3] Sinton, which was populated by non-Humans,[2] and proceeded to use the conquered inhabitants as slave labor.[3] Imperial personnel participating in the operation included the Human males[2][4] Ardan[2] and, allegedly, Sulamar. The Subjugation of Sinton[4] was but one incident in a series of Imperial atrocities committed[3] at the expense of non-Human worlds.[2]

Aftermath[edit | edit source]

By the year 12 ABY,[5] Sulamar, a low-level Imperial technician who falsely titled himself a "general," regularly adorned his uniform with many medals from previous campaigns he claimed he had won. Sulamar constantly boasted of his military exploits[4]—some nonexistent[6]—which he alleged included the Subjugation of Sinton. In reality, Sulamar was but a career military failure.[4]

Behind the scenes[edit | edit source]

The Subjugation of Sinton was first mentioned in passing in the 1995 novel Darksaber, written by Kevin J. Anderson. The character Imperial General Sulamar brags of his military exploits throughout the story, which includes Sinton, until he is eventually exposed as a fraud, leaving in doubt his involvement in the Subjugation of Sinton—and, indeed, whether that event even exists at all.[4]

Sinton's subjugation was later mentioned, and thereby established as factual, on the "Lieutenant Commander Ardan" card as part of the April 1997 Dagobah Limited expansion set of the Star Wars Customizable Card Game.[2] The Essential Atlas, released in 2009, included Sinton on a map entitled "Imperial Atrocities" in a section of the book discussing the Galactic Empire's early military conquests, suggesting that the subjugation took place early in the Imperial Period. However, the map includes events from a wide range of years, leaving the Subjugation of Sinton's chronological placement largely ambiguous.[3]
