It was at Taanab that
Lando Calrissiandemonstrated not only his ability to lead but also his knack for devising winning tactics. Lando managed to destroy the attacking space pirates, a feat which later led him to be placed in command of the Rebel starfighter groups during the Battle of Endor.Daniel Wallace and Scott Kolins, "The Essential Guide to Planets and Moons (Star Wars)" (1998).

Talay is a planet under the
Rebel Alliance, and position of the Tak base. It was the first target of the Dark Trooperproject. The base was later overtaken by Imperials, and Kyle Katarnwas sent to explore. There he discovered a prototype Dark Trooper weapon, which led him to investigate further. Also before this incident a Confederacy force had overwhelmed the planet but a clone force under Changxi ejected the forces. Jedi master Changxi was killed when order 66 was sent to the planet.
Taloraan is a gas planet similar to
Bespinwhich mines tibanna gas. Rogue Squadronwas sent to "Taloraan" to destroy enemy Tibanna Gas canisters.
Talravin is the home planet of
Bastila Shan. The climate consists of sand-storms and very hot temperatures.
Talus is one of several planets located in the Corellian system. Along with Tralus, it orbits
Centerpoint Station. Featured in Star Wars Galaxies. Roger MacBride Allen, "Ambush at Corellia", Book 1 of " The Corellian Trilogy" (1995).

Tammuz-an is a double-ringed planet. Its inhabitants are tall, purple-skinned humanoids and govern themselves through monarchy. During the early days of the Empire, an evil vizier wiped the memory of prince Mon Julpa, and cast him away, usurping the throne. The true prince, Julpa, returned and reclaimed his throne. His next act was to stop the generations of fighting between the two races of Tammuz-an. The kingdom of Julpa consisted of purple-skinned humanoids, while Lord Toda's Outer Territories were populated by blue-skinned humanoids. In teaming together to rid themselves of the menace of Gir Kybo Ren-Cha, a pirate from nearby Tarnoonga, the two cultures were able to put aside their differences and unite Tammuz-an.
Tarento was the home planet of the great
Jedi MasterUhu-Ku Ozier, a professor of knowledge at the Jedi Traning Center and Great Jedi Library on Ossus. (He died in the great shockwave while attempting to return to the planet to aid Ood Bnar.) Tarento's native population is a race of light-blue-skinned humanoids. The planet is the only habitable one in the Tarento System, and it is governed by a Democratic Monarchy. Its surface is mainly covered in water, with the exceptions of three islands, the largest of which houses a government-controlled military research facility. During the Late Republic Era, this facility experimented with mass human cloning; however, they never reached the level of the proficiency that the Kaminoanspossessed. The majority of the planet’s populace lives in underwater domed cities and cities which float on the planet's ocean surface. The Tarentians are known for their extraordinary talents in the area of technological design. The Tarentians are rumored to have supported the Bothan Spy Network and the Rebel Alliancewith numerous new technologies which they developed in secret during the reign of the Galactic Empire. This rumor has never been confirmed. (This problem may be due to the fact that every agent who tries to confirm the theory conveniently disappears while in one of the many Tarentian cities. They are never heard from again . . . )
Taris is the first planet visited by the player character (Revan) in the 2003
videogame"" upon escaping from a battleship known as the "Endar Spire", which comes under attack from Sithforces. There is a gang war in the Lower City and the Undercity is populated by monsters called rakghouls.
Situated on a hyperspace transport hub, Taris was once an important galactic presence but at the time of the game is decaying rapidly. One sprawling city covers the entirety of the planet surface. However, in most images there appears to be a long strip on the planet. This is believed to be due to an ocean.
The less affluent citizens live underground, in the Undercity or Lower City. After Revan rescues the
Jedi Bastila, who has been taken prisoner by lower city gangs, the group flees the planet in the "Ebon Hawk", a ship stolen from a local crime boss named Davik Kang. Shortly afterward, Taris is destroyed by the Sithforces under the command of the Dark Lord Malak. Unlike Alderaan, the planet itself survives intact although its surface is completely devastated by orbital bombardment. Commander Bejuwas sent to Zelka Forn's Medical Facility but he escaped 15 years before the bombardment.Taris is also a planet in the game Star Wars: Empire at War.
Taspir was a hot
lava-covered planet shown in the videogame"". About Taspir III, Jedi Master Kyle Katarnsaid with sarcasm: "It's an Imperial controlled planet, a real paradise." Most of the planet was covered in yellow haze, and the Imperial Remnant built a facility there. It was in the factory that Jedi Knight Jaden Korrsearched for his/her old friend Rosh Penin, who had sent a distress signal. Jaden eventually found Rosh, but lost control of himself, and couldn't bring himself to trust Rosh because his old friend had turned to the Dark Side and joined the Disciples of Ragnos. Rosh begged for mercy, saying "Hey, Jaden, we're friends remember?" Then the player of the game must decide if Jaden goes to the Dark Side and kills Rosh, or stays Light and believes him. Regardless of the choice, Jaden faces and kills the red Twi'lekAlora, Tavion's apprentice. The choice affects the last two missions on Korriban, after Taspir.
Tatooine (TAT-too-een),This planet, seen in all Episodes apart from "Episode V", is the home planet of the
Skywalkerfamily and the setting for much of the action in the saga's films (as well as several of the novels and other pieces of written fiction). The planet is not actually named in ""; according to Lucas he named it retrospectively after the movie's desertlocation, Tataouine(French spelling) in Tunisia. Tatooine's indigenous inhabitants are the pygmyand intelligent Jawas and the nomadic Tusken Raiders.
Tatooine is a desert world in the"Arkanis Sector" a
binary starsystem, inhabited by poor locals who mostly farm moisture for a living. The planet has been the site of repeated and failed attempts at colonization. During the prequelera, it was ruled for a long period by the Hutts, being beyond the reach of the Galactic Republic. After the fall of the Republic, the Galactic Empire established a token presence on Tatooine.
According to the game "Knights of the Old Republic I," verbal histories related by the Tusken Raiders claim that the planet was once a lush world before war (allegedly with the Rakkata) rendered it a desert. In addition, the game story relates that there are molecular flaws in the metal mined from the planet causing instabilities in things made with it (the metal corrodes easily) and as a result, many of the mining operations that have been set up on the planet ultimately fail. This relative lack of tampering is regarded as one reason so many force-sensitive individuals have originated there.
Tatooine is also home to much crime and activities that go along with it. This planet has many bars and places to gamble on various events, such as
podracing. Podracing is a sport in which many competitors race extremely fast in hovercraft-type vehicles. Podrace tracks here include the Boonta Training Course and the Boonta Eve Classic. These races involve pilots piloting their pods through twisty canyons, dark caves, rock arches, mushroom rocks and cratered valleys etc. George Lucas"et al.", "The Annotated Screenplays" (1997).

Teevan is a planet that's only known native species is the natives, Teevans. The Teevans can bend in many ways, making them very good at combat. the only Expanded universe Teevan has been mentioned in so far is Star wars: jedi quest the way of the apprentice. Also the only Teevan mentioned in the book is Tru Veld, a fellow jedi Padawan along with anakin Skywalker. Tru becomes Anakins first real friend.
Teloc Ol-Sen is a desert planet, inhabited by the Teloc hunters.
Telos IV is shown in the
Lucasarts videogame"". Telos was mentioned in the first game as the homeworld of character Carth Onasi, which he fled after it was bombed by the Sithfleet. During the game, restoration efforts are underway to help return the planet to what it was before being destroyed. The planet's inhabitants, during this restoration, relocate to the orbiting Citadel Station. During that time, Darth Nihilusattacked the planet with an armada of Sith fighters. During the battle, Nihilus was defeated by the Jedi Exileand his ship, the "Ravager", was destroyed by the Exile and Mandalorians. Due to this success, the Republicfleet won the battle and Telos was saved.
Thousands of years later, Telos has recovered and become a popular destination for intergalactic
tourists. Also the surrounding area of Citadel Station reminds someone of airport. About twelve years before the Battle of Naboo, the former Padawan of Qui-Gon Jinn, named Xanatos, turned Telos, his home planet, upside down in his pursuit for personal power. Only the intervention of Qui-Gon Jinnand Obi-Wan Kenobithwarted Xanatos' plans, and helped return the planet to its rightful government.
Telti is an ice planet with large buildings that stick up out of the ground. The buildings are homes for the native species. The natives are called P'w'ecks and
Tiss'shars. P'w'ecks are a green furred species with red feathers coming out of their heads. Tiss'shars are a "Tyrannosaurus rex"-like species.
Teyr was a bureaucratic world, 34 light years from
Vulvarch. It is a popular tourist destination, known for its majestic mountains and the breathtaking Teyr Rift. It was located near the Foless Crossroads. The planet was colonized by at least 496 BBY. On Teyr was held the race.
During the Clone Wars, it was the site of the
Battle of Teyrin 22 BBY, which was led by the Jedi K'Kruhk.
Ganner Rhysode, a member of the New Jedi Order, was from Teyr.

Thakwaa is home to the Thakwaash, a race that includes
Wraith Squadronpilot 'Runt' among its members
Thisspias is the homeworld of the Thisspiasians. Master Oppo Rancisis comes from Thisspias.
Thule is a semi-
aridplanet known for its rich savannas. Continually bombarded by lightning storms, Thule was a hidden Sithstronghold. The rocky outcroppings which broke the plains were charred black from being hit by lightning. This charred rock later served as a form of sustenance for unusual, bioluminescent moss that made the rocks glow with an eerie light. Ulic Qel-Dromafought on Thule during The Great Sith War, during which the Dark Reaperwas buried on the world. Thousands of years later, Count Dookuwent to Thule to revive the Dark Reaper to attempt to destroy the Galactic Republic during the Clone Wars. A planetary shield enveloped the Thule, projected by the small moon Sivvi orbiting it.
The Battle of Thule is the last battle featured in the video game "". The battle was divided into four phases. At phase one,
Anakin Skywalkerand his strike force took out the planetary shield on the Thule Moon. At phase two, Obi-Wan Kenobiused the Low Altitude Assault Infantry Gunship to perform an aerial attack on significant strategic locations across planet Thule and destroyed the Communications Installation in order to cripple the Separatists' communications. At phase three, Mace Winducommanded the ground forces around Thule's capital city Kessia. Upon his arrival to Kessia, Cydon Prax destroyed Mace Windu's TX-130 Saber-class fighter tank. Mace Windu had to travel on foot to open the gates to the Sith Temple. At the final phase, Anakin Skywalker and his strike force went through the Sith Temple, defeated Cydon Prax and then re-defeated the Dark Reaper. Although the knowledge on how to defeat the Dark Reaper made Skywalker stronger, it made him more arrogant to Obi-Wan Kenobi.
Thyferra is a hot, humid planet located in the Mid Rim Polith system. Almost all of the galaxy's
bactais produced here. This is the homeworld of the Vratix race who discovered how to create the bacta from the alazhi and kavam plants. The Vratix shared the secret of bacta production to their human neighbors, the result of which is that Thyferra is almost completely controlled by two human-run corporations: Zaltinand Xucphra. These two corporations were chosen by Emperor Palpatine to supply the Empire's bacta, thus eliminating any real competition in the bacta market.
From Thyferra the planets of
Korribanand Cinnigar are seen but the planet of Koros Minor is not seen. The reason for this is that the planet of Koros Minor is not seen because of the seven moons blocking it. Together the three planets form a non-equilateral triangle.
The planet was featured in the
Nintendo 64 videogame"Star Wars: Rogue Squadron". In the game, Grand Moff Kohl Seerdonlaunched an invasion of the planet to prevent bacta from reaching the Rebel Alliance, starting the Battle of Thyferra. Under command of Luke Skywalker, Rogue Squadron liberated the planet and Skywalker killed Seerdon as he fought in his modified Shuttle.
Shortly after the fall of
Coruscant, the Director of Imperial Intelligenceand self-proclaimed Empress of the Galactic Empire, Ysanne Isard, fled to Thyferra with two "Imperator"-class Star Destroyers, one "Victory"-class Star Destroyer, and the Super Star Destroyer " Lusankya". After six months, the new Rogue Squadronattacked and systematically destroyed the Imperial fleet and ended the Imperial control of the planet. After the battle, a joint coalition government, including humans and the Vratixwas set up on Thyferra, and the New Republic took over control of the "Lusankya". Michael A.

Tibrin is the homeworld of the Ishi Tib.
Tirahnn is a
terrestrial planetin the Tirahnn System.
Togoria is a mild-climated world mentioned in
A. C. Crispin's " The Han Solo Trilogy".
It is a greenish planet with lakes and shallow oceans where the Togorians, intelligent two-legged felinoids which stand up to three meters high, live. Togorians are among the most talented species of the galaxy in the art of the
huntand discretion. Togoria was the birthplace of the Togorians Muuurg and Mrrov, and where they returned to live after escaping from Ylesiaalongside of Bria Tharenand Han Solo, when he was 19.
The Togorians are very friendly with mosgoths, giant flying
reptileswhich possess intelligence higher than average for animals. Those peaceful monsters are very useful on Togoria, since they serve as the main form of transport for the Togorians. Helped by their mosgoths, they manage to defend themselves against some very voracious predators on the planet.
Toola is a cold world that is also home to the Whiphid. Clone Commander Keller led an Imperial task force to root out Jedi hiding on Toola in the early days of the New Order.
Luke Skywalker, Jedi Knight, found Jedi artifacts left behind by a Master of the Old Jedi Order in a cave there—possibly the work of Keller's division, although Skywalker observed lightsaberslashes in the Jedi's empty robes that he believed must have been the handiwork of his father, Darth Vader.

Toprawa was the site of a suicidal infiltration mission by the
Rebel Alliance, aimed at stealing and transmitting the plans to the first Death Star. Led by Bria Tharen, a former lover of Han Solo, the Red Hand Squadroninfiltrated the Imperial facility on the surface and took control long enough to transmit the stolen plans to Princess Leia's Corellian Corvette, the " Tantive IV". After the transmission was received, the "Tantive IV" made a hyperspace jump to Tatooinebut was followed and captured by the Star Destroyer"Devastator" in the opening minutes of "". Bria Tharen's team held out to complete their mission but were eventually overrun by brute force. Red Hand Squadron was utterly wiped out in the Imperial counterattack.
After the Empire secured the facility, and after the disaster at Yavin, the Empire cast about for a suitable way to express its anger. Yavin was devoid of human life, the Rebels elusive as ever, so they eventually decided to make an example of Toprawa, for its role in obtaining for the Rebels the fatal technical readout of the Death Star. Toprawa was leveled to the ground, its advanced (for a colony) civilization reduced to
stone agelevel. The planet was occupied by multiple s, and placed under a permanent blockade. Stormtroopers would parade vehicles full of food through the street, tossing the rubbish only to those Toprawans whose groveling and self-abasements amused them or seemed most sincere. Further twisting the dagger, the Imperial troops lived lives of stunning leisure and pleasure amidst the squalor, and made sure the natives knew full well what they were missing.
Before and after the
Battle of Endor, the planet came under the control of the Imperial Governor Faylon Bataar. Bataar imposed strict laws limiting the freedoms of Toprawans and invited Imperial families to reside in newly built luxurious accommodations. Bataar wanted Toprawa to become a major Imperial centre, he wanted to build large cities with grand monuments and buildings. But this dream seemed more and more unlikely as time went on with the troubles of war that was getting ever closer to Toprawas doorstep. After numerous attempts from the Rebels to seize the planet, all of them were a failure because Bataar had amassed a large garrison of many troops and vehicles, although Bataar relied on the main Imperial army and navy. Once they were defeated and Coruscantwas taken, Toprawa was on its own.
Toprawa remained unconquered for many years, until Bataar finally died and his fortune was divided amongst greedy politicians. The Toprawa garrison therefore became weak and was finally liberated by the New Republic soon after.
Tyria Sarkin, a pilot in
Wraith Squadron, is from Toprawa

Utapau appears in "" with large sinkholes covering much of the surface. Entire cities are built in cracks and crevasses in the sides of the massive sinkholes, which extend inwards in perpetual
twilight. It is revealed that the main reason for this practice is the existence of water on the sinkhole floors.
Towards the end of the Clone Wars,
General Grievoustraveled to this world to re-group and relocate the Confederate Separatist Council to Mustafarand to trap Jedi Master Obi-Wan Kenobi. Port Administrator Tion Medonaids Obi-Wan and Commander Cody in tracking down the General.
Utapau consists of two primary races; the Pau'ans comprise thirty percent of the planet's population. They are the upper class of Utapaun society. They work as government officials, administrators, and bureaucrats while the Utai, the other primary race, perform a secondary role as labor for their Pau'an masters. It is mentioned that they make up the labor class because of their natural humility.
Government in Utapau is largely autonomous. Local administrators called "Masters of Port Administration" govern the various cities of Utapau. Each administrator is supported by a committee for that city which helps and advises the administrator on local affairs. Each administrator reports to the Utapaun Committee, which is led by the Chairman of Utapau; head of state and government for the entire planet. Only the Pau'ans serve in these capacities as government officials. Many are appointed because of prestigious backgrounds. The current administrator for Pau City, Tion Medon, is a descendant of the late Timon Menon, credited with unifying Utapau in its early history. Pau'ans prefer darkness to light and raw meat to cooked, which explains the location of their cities deep within the sinkholes of Utapau.
Utapau is also the home of Boga. Boga is a Varactyl, a race of giant bird-lizards used for transport. They can be easily domesticated, and Utai often Wrangle them. Other species include the insectiod reptavian the
Cancell, and the mysterious, subaquatic, Nos monster, usually found in the bottom of sinkholes.
In early drafts of the first and fourth Star Wars movie scripts,
George Lucasoriginally used the name Utapau for both Tatooine and Naboo. Utapau is also a Thai city.
The planet has appeared in several Star Wars video games, notably

Vaathkree is the homeworld of the race of Humans Vaathkree.
Vandelhelm is home to the
Varl was the original homeworld of a giant race of slugs, the Hutts. It was destroyed long ago in a
cataclysmor a flood that utterly destroyed its atmosphere and obliterated the rest of the system that it inhabited.
Varl orbited around a star system with two suns, Evona and Ardos, which were worshipped as gods by the ancient Hutt civilization. According to Hutt legend, the two suns, represented by the gods Evona and Ardos, used to illuminate the system. One day, Evona died a fiery death when it was absorbed into a
black hole, and as the planets smashed into each other in the chaos of Evona's death, Ardos became mournfully grievous and driven mad by anger and imploded into a white dwarf.
When the fiery explosion came, the gravitational fury unleashed by the death of Evona had seemingly smashed the entire star system into rubble. This huge imbalance caused many of the system's fellow planets also to catasclymically shatter into huge asteroid fields. These asteroids destroyed all the other planets, except the planet Varl, which somehow survived the death of one god and the wrath of another. Be it through themselves or (much more likely) powerful
planetary shields, the Hutt race had managed to survive the deaths of their gods, if just barely, and in their own eyes had become as gods themselves. This "revelation" and the subsequent (and major) boost to their egos most likely led to the colonization and settlement of other planets in the galaxy such as their new homeworld Nal Hutta. The Hutts now believed themselves greater than the gods they once worshipped.
However, the main scientific theory, supported by Senior Anthropologist Hoole himself, is that Varl was destroyed by the Hutts themselves, in a civil war. This armageddon destroyed the entire system.
The veracity of the legend itself is somewhat questionable. Indeed, the general consensus among the scientific and archaeological community of the "
Star Wars" universe is that this rendition of Hutt lore (and in fact "all" renditions of Hutt lore) is almost certainly "not" true.
While the Ardos system is now indeed "rubble" and one planet (probably Varl) does seem to have somehow survived, it is generally assumed that the ancient Hutt civilization somehow obliterated it themselves, most likely due to a civil war of some sort between various factions of the ancient Hutt civilization. This explanation fits what is known of the Hutt mentality, and indeed the Legend would probably help cover up what would be now seen as an embarrassment to the Hutt race.

Vendaxa is the homeworld of the Acklay. The planet Vendaxa has one of the densest
ecosystems in the galaxy. After the Mandalorian Wars, the Czerka Corporationmade many outposts on the surface, built to capture the abundance of exotic creatures that roam its surface. The outposts sold them to wealthy beast collectors and as arena beasts on more barbaric worlds. The Acklay hunt leathery-shelled lemnia on the plains of Vendaxa, using their sharp claws to pierce the shells to gnaw out the fleshy interior. Vendaxa is home to many other nightmarish predators, and became of interest to organisations wishing to deal with the Confederacy on Geonosis, knowing how prized beasts such as the vicious acklay were in the Geonosian Arena. The sun of Vendaxa bathes the planet in a harsh light, causing most life there to evolve small, dark eyes.
Veron is the second planet in the Veron system. The native Gazarin were ruled by the humans. The planet attracted many tourists.
