The Starship Graveyard, also known as the Graveyard of Giants or Graveyard of Ships, was a wide desert area on the planet Jakku that took its name because of the wreckage of "giant" ships accumulated on its dunes.
One year after the Battle of Endor, the Galactic Empire and the New Republic fought a battle on Jakku, during which damaged starships of both factions crash landed on the terrain, littering the landscape with debris and dangerous volatiles like fuel and coolant. Among the wreckage of huge warships were the Inflictor and the Ravager. Republic infantry attempted to strike a decisive attack against the Imperial forces defending their weapons facility. In one section of the graveyard, the Crackle, the sandy terrain had been turned to glass from the heat of a crash.
