Not long after the Battle of Yavin in 0 BBY, the Empire learned of the location of the Rebel Military Base on Tatooine, forcing the Rebellion to pack up its base and move elsewhere to avoid Imperial detection. Rumor had it that they relocated to Rori, the swamp moon of Naboo. Indeed, the Rebels did relocate their base to Rori, northwest of its Lake Octir. From there, a Rebel presence on Rori continued throughout the Galactic Civil War. The base, just like its predecessor on Tatooine, was shaped in the form of the Alliance Starbird.
Behind the scenesEdit
The Rebel Base on Rori appeared in the 2003 video game Star Wars Galaxies: An Empire Divided, a massively multiplayer online-role playing game developed by Sony Online Entertainment and published by LucasArts, prior to its closure on December 15, 2011. It was added to Star Wars Galaxies during the game's first large update on August 13, 2003. The old base on Tatooine was remodeled by the developers to appear destroyed, and a new base was put on Rori. The same graphical model for the intact base on Tatooine was used for the new base on Rori. In game, no explanation was given for why the Rebels relocated from their base on Tatooine to the newly built one on Rori, but the patch notes offered an explanation. According to the notes, the Rebels packed up the Tatooinian base in order to avoid Imperial detection.
