"I'd say about twelve parsecs outside the Rishi Maze, toward the south."
Dexter Jettster, on the location of the planet Kamino[src]

The Rishi Maze, formally known as Companion Aurek, was a dwarf satellite galaxy orbiting the galaxy. The satellite derived its name from the planet Rishi, the most popular starting location for hyperspace travel to the Rishi Maze.[1] Some time prior to the Battle of Yavin, the Rebel Alliance established Firebase Alpha, an illegal energy-mining station, near a black hole inside the Rishi Maze. The smugglers Han Solo and Chewbacca were contracted to deliver supplies to the station.[2]

Behind the scenesEdit

The Episode II DVD-ROM Exclusive Content states that "the cluster known as the Rishi Maze may be the bright object that Luke and Leia stare at at the end of The Empire Strikes Back." However, Leland Chee confirmed on the StarWars.com Message Boards that the object seen in Episode V is the Star Wars galaxy,[3] despite this requiring the Rebel fleet to have traveled a very long distance from the galaxy. However, such a travel is possible according to the Outbound Flight Project led by Jedi Master Jorus C'baoth

The Rishi Maze was given the formal nomenclature of Companion Aurek in The Essential Atlas.
