Shortly after the Battle of Yavin, Jarnollen was the location of an Imperial training center. Not knowing of the Imperial presence on the planet, Luke Skywalker and Leia Organa were dispatched to the world to scout its potential as a new Rebel base. They learned of the Imperial presence just as an Imperial patrol came upon their landed ship, destroying it with proton grenades and dispatching all available forces to track the Rebels down. The pair spent much of that night and dawn the next morning evading an Imperial AT-AR, before being rescued by Han Solo and the Millennium Falcon.
Behind the scenesEdit
This planet was unnamed in the original comic. However, material written by Pablo Hidalgo for the Star Wars Adventure Journal called "The Jarnollen Expedition" would have named the planet, had the Journal not folded. Finally in 2008, the name was made official in The Complete Star Wars Encyclopedia, co-authored by Hidalgo.
