|Chronological and political information|
Salmakk operated out of the frozen world of Hoth around prior to 2 ABY. When Han Solo appeared on Hoth to rescue his friend Luke Skywalker, who had crashed on the ice planet, Salmakk could not resist trying to collect the bounty that Jabba the Hutt had placed on the smuggler's head. Solo was able to avoid capture and trapped the Mon Calamari in a cave-in at his base in a hollowed out mountain. After spending almost two standard days digging themselves out, Salmakk and his crew packed up operations and left the Hoth system.
