Sometime after the destruction of the first Death Star, Nentan was the site of a Rebel base under the command of Carlist Rieekan, serving as a stopover for liberated civilians seeking asylum from the Empire. At the Nentan checkpoint, these civilians awaited transportation to Rebel safeworlds. The base was only two months old when it was discovered by Imperial forces and assaulted during the Evacuation of Nentan. Thanks to ingenious, if not unorthodox, tactics employed by Captain Bren Derlin, all military personnel and civilians were safely evacuated from the planet, earning Derlin's promotion to Major.
Bron Burs was born on Nentan.
