The planet was discovered by the galactic community at some point between 8000 and 5500 BBY. For a brief period of time during the Clone Wars, the area of space containing Nigel III was considered to be under the political hegemony of the Confederacy of Independent Systems. During the Imperial Period, the Galactic Empire maintained a military presence on the planet. The government of Nigel III monitored inbound and outbound starship traffic through its port authority, and the Bureau of Ships and Services had an office on the world.
Imperial officer Lynx Reglis was stationed on Nigel III's Imperial base, where she in her spare time enjoyed several recreational activities, including ocean cruises and nature hikes. The pilot Duan Zorn found himself under arrest by Nigel III authorities after failing to pay port fees and stealing the Kazellis-class light freighter Longrunner.
Behind the scenesEdit
Nigel III was introduced in Stock Ships (1997), a supplement to the Star Wars Roleplaying Game published by West End Games. Aside from a brief list entry for the Nigel system in The Essential Atlas (2009) and its Online Companion, the planet has not been referenced in any other Star Wars products.
