- "This planet we're going to is completely lawless. The New Republic tried to bring it under control a few decades back– sent a good-sized fleet. None of them came back. Not one. This place is bad news."
- ―Poe Dameron
In 6 ABY, the former stormtroopers Corlac and Terex traveled to Kaddak from Jakku, where they met with Imperial sympathizers Wenda and Bett in an attempt to steal abandoned ships from the Rothana Imperial Shipyards.
A few decades before the attack on Tuanul, the New Republic tried to bring the world under its control but none of the ships it sent came back. Droids in the Resistance's spy network that were located on Kaddak acquired a large amount of information about the First Order, including the current location of Supreme Leader Snoke himself. Commander Poe Dameron, accompanied by BB-8, C-3PO, and Oddy Muva, traveled to Kaddak on the orders of General Leia Organa to investigate.
