- "I realize that you have been successful in shipping lommite through Malastare, and circling around Bestine to reach Fondor and the Core. But where will Eriadu be when Fondor opts to join the Confederacy?"
"Opts to join, or falls to you?"
- ―Dooku unsuccessfully tries to persuade Tarkin to pledge Eriadu to the Confederacy
Fondor was a planet located in the galaxy's Colonies region. In the last years of the Galactic Republic, an important part of Eriadu's economy was through shipping lommite to Fondor via Malastare. During the Separatist Crisis, Count Dooku, the leader of the Confederacy of Independent Systems, argued that Fondor would join the Confederacy instead of the Republic in an attempt to convince Eriadu's Governor Wilhuff Tarkin to side with the Confederacy. Tarkin doubted that Fondor would join willingly, suspecting the Confederacy might capture the world by force, and ultimately rejected the offer, siding with the Republic, who later emerged victorious in the ensuing Clone Wars and reformed into the Galactic Empire.
With the formation of the Empire, Fondor became a manufacturing center, with its large shipyards becoming on par with those at Scarif and Kuat. In 14 BBY, the Imperial-class Star Destroyer Sovereign was stationed at Fondor with Commander Abel LaSal stationed onboard.
Sometime after the Battle of Endor, Commander Iden Versio of Inferno Squad was recalled to a shipyard above the planet and received orders for Operation: Cinder from her father and a sentinel droid. After securing the climate disruption arrays to the Dauntless, the shipyards were attacked by the Rebel Alliance. Shortly before the Battle of Jakku, another battle took place between Imperial and New Republic forces, which resulted in the defeat of the Galactic Empire.
