Altyr V was the fifth planet in the Altyr system.

HistoryEdit

Altyr V was discovered sometime between 5,000 and 3,000 BBY.[2]

Aligning with the Confederacy of Independent Systems during the Clone Wars, Altyr V was the site of a battle during which Clone commander Deviss and his forces destroyed the Separatist ion cannon established on planet. With the cannon inactive the Grand Army of the Republic was able to rout the Separatist forces and reclaim Altyr V for the Republic.[4]

When the Galactic Empire rose to power the Imperial regime took over control of the planet, placing it within Oversector Outer. As the Empire became more destabilized at the close of the Galactic Civil War, the New Republic established a base on Altyr V. In 10 ABY, Jedi Knight Kyle Katarn was stationed on the planet acting as Captain along with his temporary apprentice Mara Jade. During their stay, the Dark Empire began an assault on the planet. The Republic forces found out that the Remnant had manned two modified asteroids, which they used to bombard the planet, pinning the Republic forces down until a large-scale assault could be staged. Katarn managed to travel to one of the asteroids and redirect its weapon to the other asteroid, destroying it. He then circumvented the weapon's cooling system, destroying the one he was on, barely escaping himself. It was during this mission he learned of an Imperial presence on Dromund Kaas, leading to his fateful brush with the Dark side of the Force.[3]

Following the Yuuzhan Vong War, Altyr V was granted representation in the Galactic Alliance Senate. During the Second Galactic Civil War, representatives from Altyr V condemned the actions of the Galactic Alliance Guards raids on Corellian citizens on Coruscant,[5] and later joined the Confederation.[2]

Behind the scenesEdit

The planet Altyr V was created for the expansion pack named Jedi Knight: Mysteries of the Sith. It was later charted on a map of the Second Galactic Civil War in the The Essential Atlas.
