"There's a colony on Thuna III, in a small system near the Unknown Regions, that's been devastated by a groundquake."

The Thuna system[1] was a small star system[2] located in the galaxy's Wild Space,[1] near the Unknown Regions. The astronomical object Thuna III was located within the system.[2] At some point by 32 BBY,[3] a colony on Thuna III was devastated by a groundquake.[2]

The Besalisk arms dealer Mavven recruited a group of individuals that had a MEV-series medical evacuation droid to travel to Thuna III and assist the colonists with evacuation. When the group arrived at the colony, it provided the locals with medical assistance and stopped a band of raiders from taking advantage of the disaster and pillaging the settlement.[2]

Behind the scenes[]

The Thuna system was first mentioned in Scavenger's Guide to Droids, a 2009 sourcebook published by Wizards of the Coast for the Star Wars Roleplaying Game. Scavenger's Guide to Droids described the system in a roleplaying adventure seed, which this article assumes plays out as described.[2]

The StarWars.com Online Companion to the 2009 reference book The Essential Atlas was the first source to identify the system by its proper name and placed it in grid square I-6.[1]

  3. Scavenger's Guide to Droids establishes that the production of MEV-series medical evacuation droids began ten years before the start of the Clone Wars, which corresponds to 32 BBY per The New Essential Chronology. According to Scavenger's Guide to Droids, a MEV-series droid was involved in the consequences of the groundquake on Thuna III, therefore the disaster must have occurred at some point by that date.
