The planet had a long history of extreme violence and constant civil war, and was largely ignored by the Old Republic. Due to their constant warring, the Culroon natives never developed space travel, but would trade for technological devices.
When the Empire decided to construct a garrison on Culroon III, the Imperial general in charge of the operation agreed to stage a mock surrender of the Culroon people by their leader, Kloff. When it turned out to be an ambush by the Culroon, the Imperial staff was rescued by an AT-AT commanded by Lieutenant Maximilian Veers.
Behind the scenesEdit
Star Wars: Rebellion: Prima's Official Strategy Guide misspells the planet as "Culoon III." The stat card for Maximilian Veers in the Star Wars Miniatures game (Dark Times: 22/40) misspells the planet "Culrron III".
