This is a list of moons and asteroids in the fictional Star Wars saga.

Alakatha[edit]

Alakatha is the fifth primary moon of K'vath. It is the home of a resort, which is located on the resort coast on Alakatha's northern continent

Alaris Prime[edit]

Alaris Prime is a rather small, forested moon colonized by the Wookiee race. This venture was aided by Jedi Master Qui-Gon Jinn. Introduced in the real-time-strategy game Star Wars: Galactic Battlegrounds, the moon was the site of the war between the Wookiees and the Trade Federation, known as the Battle for Alaris Prime. The Trade Federation's greed for natural resources was aided by the Trandoshans' greed for Wookiee skins. Eventually, the Wookiees triumphed over the small battalion of battle droids that was dispatched to Alaris. Alaris Prime later was the site of the Force Harvester weapon used in the Clone Wars, and the production site of the Galactic Republic's Decimator, an incredible weapon of war that was also used during the Clone Wars.

Antar 4[edit]

Antar 4 is the fourth of six moons orbiting the gas giant Antar and is home to the Gotal race. It has wild seasons and strange phases of light and dark caused by the parent planet eclipsing the sun.

Brentaal IV[edit]

Brentaal IV was a colonized moon of the planet Brentaal in the Brentaal system. It was the site of the Battle of Brentaal IV during the Clone Wars, and another battle in the Galactic Civil War. It was a rich world; half the Cabal owned property on Brentaal IV and they shared their wealth with the other half, making its loss a prime factor in the outing of Sate Pestage. After capturing the moon, New Republic forces used it as a base to conquer the planet below. The capital of the moon was Vuultin; another city was Oradin.

Cybloc XII[edit]

Cybloc XII is a moon orbiting the planet Cybloc in the Meridian Sector. It is home to a New Republic trade base.

Da Soocha V[edit]

Da Soocha V, also known as Pinnicle Moon, was the fifth moon of the planet Da Soocha in Hutt Space. A watery moon, it was the temporary headquarters of the New Republic during their battle against the revived Emperor Palpatine. Da Soocha V had thousands of natural spires that rose a mile high into the air, the tops of which were large enough to support the buildings, hangars, and other facilities constructed upon them. Sadly, the moon was destroyed by the reborn Emperor's Galaxy Gun, with only a portion of the native species of Ixlls evacuating just in time.[1][2]

Dorumaa[edit]

Dorumaa is the terraformed resort moon of the planet Almas, in the Cularin system.

Dxun[edit]

Dxun is the moon of Onderon, a fictional planet in the Star Wars universe that appears in the video game Knights of the Old Republic II: The Sith Lords, among other sources.

It is told throughout the Star Wars universe that the Mandalorian Wars began on the moon of Dxun, where the former leader of the Mandalorians, Mandalore the Indomitable, had been killed at the end of the Great Sith War. Before the Great Sith War, Freedon Nadd's spirit guided the young Padawan Exar Kun to his tomb, where his mummy and Queen Amonoa and King Omnin rested. He told Kun to take the scrolls that would lead him to Korriban.

During the time of Knights of the Old Republic II: The Sith Lords, Canderous Ordo, taking the title of Mandalore gathered the remaining Mandalorians, most of which were mercenaries at the time, on the moon of Dxun. There they regrouped, later helping the Jedi Exile destroy the battle cruiser known as the Ravager, which had been resurrected from the long since destroyed world of Malachor V,(were the last battle of the mandalorian wars took place) by the Sith Lord Darth Nihilus.

Dxun houses the tomb of Dark Lord of the Sith Freedon Nadd, who had conquered and ruled Onderon before his death, and many other Onderonian leaders.

Ebaq 9[edit]

Ebaq 9 is a moon of the gas giant Ebaq in the deep core of the Star Wars galaxy. It was originally mined for its heavy metals by the Empire, but it was converted to a military base by the New Republic to bait the Yuuzhan Vong fleet, where they were destroyed by the New Republic.

The Battle of Ebaq 9 took place during a crucial time in the war with the Yuuzhan Vong. Retired Admiral Ackbar, hero of the Galactic Civil War, developed a plan to turn the war in the favor of the New Republic. The commander of the Yuuzhan Vong fleets, Warmaster Tsavong Lah, was obsessed with destroying the Jedi. Ackbar used the old base on Ebaq 9 to install a force of Jedi, including Jaina Solo. Using deception and feeding false information to Yuuzhan Vong spies, operating under Nom Anor, the New Republic lured Tsavong Lah to attack.

The warmaster brought thousands of ships into the system. He was exultant when his Voxyn howled, indicating there actually were Jedi on Ebaq 9. Once the Yuuzhan Vong fleet had entered the system, other Republic ships moved in and planted an interdiction field generator, along with tens of thousands of mines, along the route of which the Yuuzhan Vong would have to take out of the system. Then, from secret hyperspace routes deep in the galactic core, hundreds of Republic ships jumped into the system, attacking the Yuuzhan Vong from all directions.

Tsavong Lah, realising he had been baited and lured into a trap, ordered a large portion of his forces to retreat. Knowing his reputation was destroyed and his honor lost by the looming defeat, he kept part of his forces and prepared to fight to the death. Many of the retreating Yuuzhan Vong ships were destroyed by the minefields laid in their path of retreat.

With his remaining forces, Tsavong Lah pushed straight for Ebaq 9 after announcing a Jedi hunt, to which Jacen Solo responded. Once Tsavong Lah landed on the moon, he personally lead over ten thousand warriors in a ground attack through the tunnels. He eventually figured out that Jaina was on the planet, which was why Jacen decided to come, and decided to try to sacrifice the twins again so he could regain his honour.

Republic forces, led by General Garm Bel-Iblis, Admiral Traest Kre'fey, General Wedge Antilles, and Jedi Master Luke Skywalker, easily overwhelmed the remaining Yuuzhan Vong spaceships. During the chaos of the ground fighting, the Fosh Jedi, Vergere, stole an Alliance A-Wing and crashed it into the moon, killing the Yuuzhan Vong attacking Jacen. The battle ended as Jaina Solo cut down Tsavong Lah in a brief duel among the thousands of Yuuzhan Vong corpses.

In many ways, the Battle of Ebaq 9 was a turning point in the war. It was one of the first times the Yuuzhan Vong had been so openly and decisively defeated.

Ohma D'un[edit]

Ohma-D'un is one of Naboo's three moons. Following the Battle of Naboo, the Naboo government and the Gungans launched a joint venture to colonize the moon, in an effort to preserve ecological stability, alleviate overcrowding in Otoh Gunga, and foster peace and goodwill. The experiment worked, and created a stable ecology on the moon. Unfortunately, the colony was attacked by the Separatists with a chemical weapon early in the Clone Wars. Many Gungan colonists died due to exposure to an experimental toxin engineered to wipe out the Republic's clone army. The Separatists were then prepared to release the toxin into Naboo's atmosphere, but the plan was foiled due to the efforts of Anakin Skywalker and the ARC trooper Alpha. Naboo's two other moons are called Tasia and Rori.

The molten Rennokk is one of the two moons of Cularin.

Rogue Moon[edit]

The "Rogue Moon" was an unnamed low-gravity moon in the Taris system and the place of Jedi trials for Padawans studying in the Jedi Temple on the planet Taris. The moon sat in the middle of an asteroid field, but had a retrograde orbit, traveling in the opposite direction to the asteroids around it. As a result, it was bombarded heavily by these asteroids.

Narmle is Rori's largest city, named after King Narmle of Naboo. The other large city, Restuss, was destroyed in a battle between Imperial and Rebel forces. The outcome of the battle was not decisive and is considered by many to be a stalemate. Borgles, Nudfuhs, and Tortons are some of the most common creatures found on Rori. Rori is home to the Kobala Spice mines and is a good place for hunting. Naboo's two other moons are called Ohma D'un and Tasia.

Eventually, Senali won its independence in a bloody civil war. To promote peace, both worlds decided to exchange their first-born rulers, who at the age of seven would live on the other world for nine years and learn about its culture. This system worked well for many years until the Rutanians sold information about Senali to the Yuuzhan Vong, who then attacked and enslaved Senali and then destroyed Rutan.[3]

The Tenloss Syndicate had built a hidden shipyard in a nickel-iron asteroid referred to as the Vergesso asteroid. The asteroid is the size of a small moon and has a surface pockmarked with craters.
