"Many Bothans died to bring us this information."
Mon Mothma, before the Battle of Endor[src]

Bothans (pronounced /'bɑθɪn/) were the species credited with stealing the plans for the Death Star II, despite sustaining heavy casualties, thereby enabling the Rebel Alliance to plan an attack on the unfinished space station.[1] The Bothans also provided the Rebel Alliance with other useful information, such as the door code for the shield generator bunker on the forest moon of Endor.[2]

Bothans were known to communicate with each other in a series of growls.[3]

Behind the scenesEdit

Though the mention of Bothans in the film Return of the Jedi by Mon Mothma did not expound on the nature of Bothans, their role and sacrifice in securing the plans for the second Death Star is well-known as a consequence.
