"Take the disks directly to the Commander at Outpost GRF-7493."
―An Imperial Data Officer[src]

Outpost GRF-7493 was a small Imperial garrison on Yavin 4.


The outpost was promptly constructed during the Empire Day festivities of 1 ABY. It was during this particular Empire Day that the outpost was inhabited by an Imperial commander, Darth Vader and a number of other Imperial soldiers. An imprisoned Jedi was held there for interrogation, and presumably execution.

Following Empire Day, Vader left the outpost to pursue other matters. The outpost remained as a minor Imperial foothold on the world, but went mostly unused. Nonetheless, an Imperial recruiter, a number of Novatroopers and several All Terrain Scout Transports still patrolled the facility.

Behind the scenesEdit

Outpost GRF-7493 appears in the MMORPG Star Wars Galaxies. During the Empire Day live event from June 29, 2005 to July 11, 2005 Imperial players had to go this location to complete a quest titled "Happy Empire Day." After the live event ended, the outpost remained, but served no real purpose.
