"We got offworld a few days later, and I swore off taking botanical advice from machines ever again."
―Nath Tensent — (audio) Listen (file info)[2]

Thakwaa was a terrestrial astronomical object[2] located in the Outer Rim Territories and positioned at the coordinates I-19[1] on the Standard Galactic Grid.[3] The Red Isles was a location on Thakwaa, where the Rebel Alliance pilot Nath Tensent and his astromech droid T5 had to spend a night some time prior to the Battle of Endor,[2] fought in 4 ABY.[4] For protection against flies, T5 convinced Tensent to create an ointment from plant stems, which had a side effect of causing rashes. According to Tensent, nothing interesting occurred during his time on Thakwaa, and the two departed several days later.[2]
