The Qiilura system was a star system that became the target of an annexation attempt by the Confederacy of Independent Systems during the galactic conflict known as the Clone Wars. In order to combat the threat of the system's loss to the Separatist Confederacy, the Galactic Republic dispatched a fleet to the Qiilura system. However, the Republic force meant to halt the annexation was temporarily diverted to the Aleen system, in order to provide relief aid to the survivors of a series of devastating groundquakes.
Behind the scenesEdit
- "A Jedi transport, on a mission to block Separatist annexation of the Qiilura system, is waylaid to provide desperately needed humanitarian relief to the people on the surface of Aleen..."
- ―Opening narration for "Mercy Mission"
The Qiilura system made its first appearance in the Star Wars universe in the Republic Commando novel Hard Contact, written by author Karen Traviss and published October 26, 2004. Though the series was reclassified as "Legends" following the franchise's purchase by The Walt Disney Company, the Qiilura system remained canon due to a mention in the Star Wars: The Clone Wars television series' fourth season episode "Mercy Mission."
