Polomie was a planet that became one of the many battlefield sites in the conflict known as the Galactic Civil War. In the year 1 BBY, shortly after the formation of the Alliance to Restore the Republic, a Rebel military force established an outpost on Polomie. At the same time, construction of a new military vessel, known as the Nemesis-class gunship, had just been finished. The Imperial Department of Military Research decided that the Rebel outpost on Polomie would make a sufficient field testing site in order for the experimental gunship to test its capabilities.
Under the watchful observation of Inspector-General Moff Rebu, the Nemesis exceeded all expectations and even produced a few unexpected results as well. Utilizing jet-drives rather than the usual repulsor system, the gunship's engines produced a shrieking, high-pitched sonic wave that demoralized the Rebel soldiers, thus causing many of them to flee for their lives. In addition to its role as a symbol of fear and terror, the Nemesis-class gunship's arsenal, primarily consisting of a Hellcaster cannon and two concussion missile side-launchers, proved exceptionally efficient in an anti-personnel and anti-armor capacity.
Although extremely pleased with the results of the Nemesis' performance on Polomie, Moff Rebu was dismayed to report the consequence of such a powerful vessel. Ironically, the gunship's own weapons and firepower ironically ensured that it would never enter in to mass-production for the Imperial Navy. The costs of building the Nemesis-class gunships in small numbers was far too high. As a consequence, the few gunships that were built could only be affordable to the most wealthy Moffs and governors in the Galactic Empire.
Behind the scenesEdit
The planet Polomie is first mentioned in the video game databank of Star Wars: The Force Unleashed II. In Moff Rebu's report to the Imperial Department of Military Research, the mention of Polomie can be found in the Nemesis Gunship profile.
