Locations Of The Republic And Empire
« on: March 10, 2006, 09:51 PM »
Kamino Cloning Center:

The bulk of the GAR was created here, under the watchful eye of the Kamionoans. During the first months of the Clone Wars, CIS forces invaded Kamino, but a group of Jedi, led by Shaak Ti and Anakin Skywalker, bravely defended the facility. This was also the first battle to use ARC Troopers. When the Republic became an Empire, the Kamionoans rebelled, turning their Kamino-loyal clones against the Empire. A company of Imperial Troops, led by Boba Fett, defeated the renegade Kamionoans. Shortly after, a change of government led Kamino to be ruled by Wueh Gu, a fan of the Empire, instead of Lama Su. Thus Tipoca City became a base for the Empire, and a Stormtrooper training facility.

Senate Rotunda:

The site of countless pivotal events, the senate rotunda was where the Galactic Senate took place. The Supreme Chancellor's box was in the center, so he could hear all sides of a discussion. During the time of ANH when the senate was disbanded, the Senate Rotunda was reconfigured as a musuem of Palpatine's achievments.

Jedi Temple:

The main site of the Jedi Order until the Jedi Purge, the Jedi Temple was a sanctuary for Jedi and sometimes, non-Jedi. It had many hangar bays and garages, which housed Jedi Fighters, the speedy Jedi Interceptors, and Republic Gunships. Clone Troopers often loitered at the Jedi Temple, and some Clones were fascinated by the Jedi Order. During the early days of the Empire the Jedi Temple was devestated by a legion of Stormtroopers, led by Darth Vader. The Jedi Temple was mysteriously rebuilt during the Galactic Civil War but by who, no one knows.

A New Order:

As the Empire gripped the galaxy in oppression, they extended their reach by building many outposts and bases, from the Imperial Homeworld of Coruscant to the forest moon of Endor.

Imperial City:

Imperial City, located in the heart of Coruscant, was where Emperor Palpatine would carry out his plans for the Empire. Patrols of Stormtroopers was a common site during the time of the Empire, and was part of Palpatines Rule By Fear.

Death Star:

A Space Station capable of destroying an entire planet, the Death Star was an example of the Empire's Rule By Fear. It could house around 10 divisions of stormtroopers, 5 squadrons of TIE Fighters, 15 Imperial Lambda-Class Shuttles, 10 ImperialTheta-Class Shuttles, 6 squadrons of TIE Interceptors, 6 squadrons of TIE Bombers, 4 Acclamator-Class Cruisers, and 2 Victory-Class Star Destroyers, and other Imperial ships. Its superlaser had the power to destroy an entire planet. The first Death Star was destroyed by Luke Skywalker, while the second Death Star was destroyed by Lando Calrissian, Wedge Antilles and Nien Nunb.


One of the first Imperial bases founded, Carida was also a major Imperial Academy. It was considered a "safe haven" for lovers of the Empire. During the time of the New Republic it was destroyed by the Sun Crusher.

Imperial Bunker:

A small Imperial base during the Battle Of Endor, the Imperial Bunker was neccesary to destroying the Death Star II. In the end, Han Solo and a crack team of Rebel Commandos destroyed the bunker, allowing Rebel forces above to destroy the Death Star II.

Echo Base:

A few years after the Empire defeated the Rebels at Hoth, the Imperial Remnant returned to Hoth, to use the Scepter of Ragnos to suck the Force out of Hoth. They set up a small base of operations inside the Echo Base hangar bay, with several AT-STs and AT-ATs patrolling outside. Around a year after the Imperials had occupied the base, a jedi knight name Jaden Korr was assigned by jedi master Luke Skywalker to investigate Echo Base. He discovered the Imperials, and killed most of them. After fighting one of the Empire's Dark Jedi, Jaden fled Echo Base. The remaining Snowtroopers spared by Jaden's blade salvaged weapons, droids, and supplies and took off in an Imperial Lambda-Class Shuttle.

Imperial Rehabilitation Center:

The Imperial Rehabilitation Center was where the burnt, battered, and bruised body of Darth Vader was taken to, then placed in Sith armor. This was also the place where Vader did most of his Sith training. One room in the center was an entire room of Palpatine's Sith artifacts, such as lightsabers, cortosis blades, robes, holocrons, and crystals from Dantooine and Onderon. The Imperial Rehab Center also had multiple bacta tanks for wounded stormtroopers and officers.

BesGas Three:

When the Empire placed Bespin under marshall law, they also took control of the refinerys and outposts, in the name of the Empire. BesGas Three was one of the major refinerys which the Empire controlled.

Imperial Throne Room:

Palpatine had two grand throne rooms in both of the Death Stars. The throne room was the most shielded part of the giant space station, and Palpatine could also control the entire station from his throne room. His Royal Guards had control consoles in his throne room from where they could send messages to Star Destroyers and TIE Fighters in orbit. Palpatine also installed throne rooms in some Super Star Destroyers, if he ever visited one. Thrawn had a custom throne room built for him in his Star Destroyer, where he hung priceless works of art.

Oh boy, HunterofthePegs, you're really getting down to business with these guides to the Republic/Empire. Clone Cmmander, you really did a good job getting these guides started. If I had the time, I'd love to do some of these guides for the Separatists.
