"Shantipole?"
"Every pilot in the galaxy knows that’s a one-way trip."
―Two Phoenix Squadron pilots[src]

Shantipole was a remote planet located in the galaxy that was renowned for having a violent atmosphere that was a one-way trip for pilots. It was home to the Mon Calamari Quarrie, who designed a prototype for the B-wing starfighter. During the blockade of Ibaar, Hera Syndulla, Sabine Wren and Garazeb Orrelios traveled to Shantipole to get the prototype B-wing to break Ibaar's blockade.[1]

DescriptionEdit

A remote world[5] orbited by at least one moon,[1] Shantipole had a violent atmosphere of gas and lightning and was practically desolate. The planet's surface was dominated by mountain spires[2] covered vibrantly-colored trees.[1] Large, winged creatures known as dactillions could be found in Shantipole's skies.[4]

HistoryEdit

Because of its violent atmosphere, most pilots typically avoided Shantipole,[2] with one regarding it as a "one-way trip."[1] This attribute, however, made it the perfect workplace for Quarrie, a Mon Calamari master engineer and starfighter designer, as it allowed him to toil on his creations far from the watchful eye of the Galactic Empire.[2] He established a secret starfighter laboratory and,[5] after years of work, he designed and build Prototype B6,[2] an advanced starfighter armed with experimental weapons, with the assistance of his astromech droid, BG-81.[5]
