Tenara was a planet that was located in the Tenara system. It was situated in the Back Reach area of the Gordian Reach sector, within the Trans-Hydian portion of the Outer Rim Territories. A small hyperlane connected Tenara to the planet Korphir.[1]

Centuries before[1] the year 43 ABY,[2] Tenara served as a bolt-hole for pirates from Korphir. The pirates used hidden vaults on Tenara to stash their stolen loot, and the planet gained a reputation as a fabled treasure world as a result.[1]

By 43 ABY,[2] Tenara was no longer used by the Korphiri pirates as a hide-out, and was instead a farming world. Tenara's inhabitants offered sightseeing tours of the old and dusty pirate hiding places in order to earn extra credits.[1]

Behind the scenes[]

Tenara was first mentioned in the 2009 reference book The Essential Atlas, written by Jason Fry and Daniel Wallace, which placed the planet in grid square Q-6.[1]
