At some point between the formation of the Galactic Empire and 0 ABY, a communications complex was manned by the Imperial Military on Galvoni III of the Galvoni system. It was overseen by the Imperial Records Office, the complex contained an immense collection of data relating to the DS-1 Orbital Battle Station, including an early Imperial Schematic Design System data of the battlestation that featured its Concave Dish Composite Beam Superlaser directly on the station's equatorial trench, holocam transmissions of then non-Rebel Alliance-affiliated individuals Han Solo, Luke Skywalker, and Chewbacca orchestrating a rescue of Rebel Alliance leader Princess Leia Organa from Detention Block AA-23, footages of fugitive Jedi Knight Obi-Wan Kenobi disabling Tractor Beam 12; Imperial Enforcer Darth Vader overseeing the interrogation of Organa via an IT-O interrogator droid; droids inside the Maintenance Section 19-52 that were later identified by Rebel agents as being droids that had been stolen from the Jawas on Tatooine; Organa, Solo, Chewbacca, and Skywalker escaping via compactor 3263827; Organa and Skywalker's crossing of the central core shaft; Solo and Chewbacca narrowly escaping through a closing blast door; a briefing in the Death Star's conference room shortly after Vader had captured Organa in the Tatooine system; the Millennium Falcon's capture by the Death Star's tractor beams; and Death Star gunners within one of the Death Star's tributary beam shafts. In the aftermath of the Death Star's destruction at the Battle of Yavin, Voren Na'al infiltrated this base, and managed to steal a large amount of data transmitted from the Death Star up to its final moments.
