During the last year of the Great Sith War, Gyndine was the site of a battle in which the Galactic Republic was victorious. Millennia later, Jedi were victorious at Gyndine during a battle of the New Sith Wars.
Kuat Drive Yards maintained research shipyards in orbit of the planet. Before her discovery by Anakin Skywalker, the astromech R4-P17 was almost destroyed in an accident involving a trash compactor there.
Prior to the Clone Wars, in 22 BBY, a slaving operation was uncovered in the city of Yractos on Gyndine, where a Thalassian slaver was attempting to sell twelve Twi'lek slaves. During plea bargain sessions with the slaver, Jurisconsult Temlet Dodann uncovered evidence that four Outer Rim senators had also been involved with the slavers.
By 4 ABY, the planet had become an Imperial fortress world. The Empire abandoned the planet in 6 ABY, after the Battle of Reytha. Gyndine joined the New Republic sometime between 6 ABY and 7 ABY. It was a New Republic stronghold during the Hunt for Zsinj and the Thrawn campaign but the planet surrendered to the Empire during Operation Shadow Hand.
During the Yuuzhan Vong War, the planet agreed to accept refugees, only to be attacked and conquered by the Yuuzhan Vong. During the battle, the extragalactic invaders deployed Fire Breathers which burned Gyndine's forests and boiled its lakes. The New Republic later raided the world. Just before the end of the war, Boba Fett and his Mandalorian Protectors, whom he had taken command of following the death of Fenn Shysa, arrived at Gyndine. Deploying Meteor-class Q-Carriers and Pursuer Enforcement Ships from a Mandalorian dungeon ship, they were able to reclaim the world from its conquerors.
Behind the scenesEdit
The well-known 1978 blueprints by Geoffrey Mandel name Gyndine as the site of the shipyard where the prototype of the "Star Destroyer Imperator Class" was built, but it is unclear whether these plans were an official publication.
