- "Hypori hosts a former Baktoid Armor droid factory that might date to ten or maybe as many as thirty standard years before the war. That facility is still more or less intact, possibly even operational, but everything around it—including a couple of newer, retrofitted structures—was laid to waste."
- ―Galen Walton Erso
Established by Techno Union foreman Wat Tambor on the planet Hypori was a Baktoid Armor droid factory that produced battle droids for the Confederacy of Independent Systems during the Clone Wars. After the war's end, however, the factory was transformed into a secret research station for the Galactic Empire, one of many locations throughout the galaxy that played a role in Project Celestial Power, an Imperial program that researched and developed various portions of the Empire's superweapon, a mobile battle station later known as the Death Star.
