Atchorb was a planet within the Atchorb system of the Tingel Arm in the Outer Rim Territories. It was one of many planets that became part of the Corporate Sector, meaning it fell under the control of the Corporate Sector Authority. The world became a mid-level trading world after some investment, but did not experience a true financial boom until it started being used as a staging ground for operations in Trianii Space.


Atchorb was a planet[1] located in the Atchorb system of the Tingel Arm in the Outer Rim Territories.[2] The planet was located on both the Shaltin Tunnels hyperlane and the Authority Guardian Corridor hyperlane, acting as a junction between the two.[4]



Atchorb was used to stage operations against the Trianii.

Atchorb fell within an area of space which was widely explored for the first time at one point between the years 3000 BBY and 1000 BBY.[9] The region was considered to be part of the space controlled by the Galactic Republic by the time of the Clone Wars against the Confederacy of Independent Systems.[5] After the end of the Clone Wars, Atchorb was part of the expanded Corporate Sector as approved by the newly formed Galactic Empire. This meant it fell under the control of the Corporate Sector Authority,[4] who invested vast amounts of credits into the planet, although only managing to make it into a mid-level trading world. This was the case until Atchorb started to be used by the Authorities' military units as a staging area for operations taking place in the nearby Trianii Space, home to the Trianii species. The influx of soldiers brought greatly increased financial success to the planet.[1] Between 7 ABY and 8 ABY, Atchorb fell within the Empire of Imperial Warlord Zsinj.[6] During the Second Galactic Civil War, between 40 ABY and 41 ABY, the planet joined the Confederation, along with the entire Corporate sector.[7] By 137 ABY, it fell within the Empire of the Sith Lord Darth Krayt.[8]
