F'Dann IX was an Outer Rim location which was best known as the site of a skirmish between the Imperial Navy and the Crimson Nova pirates. Early in his career in the Imperial Military, Pter Thanas led an Imperial task force centered around the Carrack-class light cruiser Dominant against the pirates. While the pirates put up heavy resistance against the Imperial forces, Thanas was able to defeat their fleet and destroy their base on F’Dann IX.
