"Attention, citizens! I am Grand Moff Nivers. This planet is now under control of the Empire! You will work for the Empire… or you will suffer!"
Nigel Nivers, to the citizens of Tandankin[src]

Tandankin was a planet located in the Spadja sector of the Outer Rim Territories.

History[edit | edit source]

Parallel to the Galactic War, the unsolved murder of a popular governor made the ethnic factions of Tandankin accuse one another. The planet was considered to be at the brink of descending into chaos due to the dispute.[3]

The landscape of Tandankin

After the Battle of Endor, Grand Moff Nivers occupied the planet, but Tandankin was liberated by Wedge Antilles, Luke Skywalker, and Rogue Squadron. Wedge destroyed the Imperial TIE/LN starfighters before they could even launch, by shooting down a tall tower that crushed the TIE fighters.[2]

The tower was the most cherished monument of Tandankin, and the populace was outraged, berating Wedge. Luke chastised them for their behavior, and they later apologized to Wedge and thanked him.[2]

Approximately ten months after the Battle of Endor, the planet was invaded by the Stenax using stolen Imperial military technology, resulting in millions of deaths.[4]
