The Crait outpost was an outpost of the Alliance to Restore the Republic[2] on the mineral planet[4] of Crait. Rebel pilot Heff Tobber was stationed there as a transport pilot until its abandonment prior to the Battle of Scarif in 0 BBY.[2] Many years later, some time after the destruction of the First Order's Starkiller Base in 34 ABY,[5] the abandoned base was still there when a battle broke out between the Resistance[4] and the First Order on the planet surface.[6]


The outpost was a rough, bare-bones facility. It was mostly underground, and had a small tractor beam for snagging approaching ships.[1] A massive metal door protected it from exterior attack, and served as the only obvious entry and exitway. Outside of the door were a number of trenches and artillery emplacements to defend against Imperial attacks. The base also had a shield generator that was powerful enough to prevent orbital bombardment. The base was protected by a series of artillery batteries and trenches, as well as being home to a large mineral mine.


It was first founded before 3 BBY as an outpost of the early rebellion. After finding information leading to the planet, Princess Leia Organa of Alderaan travelled to Crait on the royal yacht Polestar. Upon landing, she was taken to the outpost, where she discovered that her father Bail Organa was involved in the rebellion.[1] After the Battle of Starkiller Base, the Resistance evacuated to the base after their original base on the planet of D'Qar was discovered by the First Order. The First Order followed the Resistance to the world, which sparked the Battle of Crait.[7]
