Fort Garnik was the chief base for Republic military forces on Avilatan. It held the command center, as well as a small spaceport used to reach orbit. Listening posts, armored transports, and aerial support units could be found there. Fort Garnik also held a small market, businesses, and a cantina, and during the Separatist War refugee camps surrounded the fort.
During the Mantellian Separatist Movement, Separatist attacks were common. Continuous fighting existed near the base, in an effort to drive the Republic off Avilatan.
