"We're going to have to pack up most of our offices and rely on long-term droid observations now."
―Tobbert Dalonbian, to HoloNet News[src]

Tobbert Dalonbian was president of the Extragalactic Society, an institute searching for extragalactic life,[1] in 22 BBY.[2] When scientific funding was restricted by the Galactic Republic's General Ministry across all of its institutes in that year, a clearly disconsolate Dalonbian reported that the Society would have to close most of its offices and rely on droid-based methods of operation. Dalonbian shared a last name with the[1] Dalonbian sector of the Outer Rim Territories.[3]

Behind the scenesEdit

Tobbert Dalonbian was introduced in HoloNet News Vol. 531 #47, an installment of the HoloNet News website[1] released on March 14, 2002.[4]
