"Probably. We've got the fighters who survived the Tocan system disaster recuperating in Ghorman; they'll be maybe 75% effective in two weeks. Plus, we can strip Tierfon, Homon and Farstey for the other wing, if the Imps hold off on their offensive in that region."
Chief of Sector Command[src]

Ghorman was a planet in the Sern sector of the Colonies region. It was the site of the infamous Ghorman Massacre. Fang Zar had a residence on the planet.

It lay on the Rimma Trade Route.[3]

HistoryEdit

A temperate planet, Ghorman was the site of the Ghorman Massacre, an early atrocity committed the Empire shortly after its formation. In 18 BBY, an anti-tax demonstration by the Ghorman citizens ended in tragedy when Wilhuff Tarkin purposefully landed his ship on top of the crowd of peaceful demonstrators, killing and injuring hundreds.[5]

The members of the former Delegation of 2000 were spurred by the Ghorman Massacre to begin plotting open rebellion against the Empire, plans which would culminate in the formal creation of the Alliance to Restore the Republic some seventeen years later. As a result of his action, Emperor Palpatine promoted Tarkin to the rank of Admiral.

In the Imperial Senate, the planet was represented by Gebnerret Vibrion.

An Imperial base was later established on Ghorman. An Imperial freighter convoy consisting of 3 BFF-1 bulk freighters called Century 1, Century 2, and Century 3 was en route to the new base and had already rendezvoused with a TIE Fighter escort when the Rebels deployed a Y-wing along with an R-22 Spearhead from Red Squadron to attack the convoy. The R-22 held off the attacking TIEs while the Y-wing destroyed the convoy. The loss of necessary supplies managed to delay the completion of the outpost for an entire year. The Rebels later recreated the mission as a simulation for training new pilots.

Behind the scenesEdit

The PC game Star Wars: Rebellion mistakenly places Ghorman in the Sesswenna sector (a misspelling of the true Seswenna sector) of the Core Worlds. The Seswenna sector is actually located in the Outer Rim.
