Triton was a small, almost lifeless planet in the Mayagil sector of the Outer Rim Territories. It was orbited by the three Triton Moons. The moons were nefariously used by many in the galaxy to describe a dead thing—as dead as a Triton moon, due to the ban of stimulants of any kind.[1]



Another view of Triton.

Triton was an unremarkable planet besides its location at the choke of the several hyperspace routes. It was covered by a hardpan desert expanse baked by sunlight which was reflected yellow.

The moons of the planet were no more than checkpoints along the routes such as the Rimma on its way to the Sluis sector, Elrood and the Minos Cluster.


The Tritonites of this world developed a faith around the writings and teachings of the mysterious Gactimus. Travelers to the moons or the planet were required to tithe away money or possessions to Gactimus, and some spacers were forced to join the mysterious cult.


During the Clone Wars, Triton was the site of a battle as part of the Outer Rim Sieges. The Galactic Republic besieged Separatist holdings on the planet, or possibly its moons.

Behind the scenesEdit

Triton is also the name of a real moon orbiting Neptune in the solar system.

While the moons are often used as an idiom for something dead and lifeless, one of the moons is home to the Tritonite species.
