"So we've got a tiny little merc base in the middle of nowhere experimenting on Womp Rats. How odd. I wonder what they were planning?"
―Saponza wonders about the labs purpose after its destruction[1]

A research lab on the planet Tatooine was used by mercenaries to conduct research on local womp rats.


The lab consisted on a central research building and a small dome shaped building enclosed by walls, with a third building and an autoturret outside the defenses. A pair of womp rat nests were also located in the rocks nearby.


Between the Battle of Yavin and the Battle of Hoth during the Galactic Civil War, the experiments began to cause increased aggression in the womp rats, leading to an increase in attacks by the vermin on locals. This led to a gang of mercenaries led by the human Saponza and his partner to begin looking for the source of the attacks, leading them to the lab. Saponza and his partner's forces then entirely destroyed the lab.[1]

Behind the scenes[]

The lab first appeared as a map in the first chapter of Star Wars: Commander, a mobile strategy game released in 2014 by Disney Interactive.
