Affiliation

Taanab was a planet of green meadows in the Taanab system. It was primarily used for agriculture and farming. Its populace was known for always maintaining an air of formality. Taanab had problems with seasonal pirate raids from bandits striking from the planet Norulac for millennia prior to the Battle of Taanab.

CharacteristicsEdit

The Inner Rim planet of Taanab was a world with abundant sunlight, mild climate, almost no tectonic activity with grassy landmasses, always close to meandering strips of water. The planet was overgrown with green jungles, but no animal life at the time of its colonization.[1]

Near the equator, the fields and factory farms were formed into a hexagonal tessellation. Much of its climate was optimized for bumper yields by weather-controlling satellites and orbital mirrors.[1]

The fauna was imported, with some becoming feral. The untamed former herd members had their numbers checked by by droid sharpshooters.[1]

The administrative capital was Pandath. Tanaab was sponsored by agricultural conglomerates like Arcon Multinode, Tagge Restaurant Association, and Core Foodstuffs. The Banthal Company transported cargo to poorer worlds.[1]

The planet was especially known for its roba steak.

HistoryEdit

The planet was first discovered between 25,000 BBY to 20,000 BBY, sometime between the Tionese War and the settling of the Slice. During the Great Sith War, a battle was fought here during the Krath Holy Crusade which the Sith had won.[1]

It was later colonized in 2320 BBY, when Taanab was once a world covered in thick, inhospitable jungle, similar to Felucia. During the New Sith Wars, the Brotherhood of Darkness captured the planet and used it as an outpost. Eventually the Jedi Order established a chapter house for the Agricultural Corps in the capital city of Pandath.[1]

Taanab people

Huff Darklighter once employed farmers from Taanab, as well as Bandomeer and Salliche, to staff his underground hydroponic gardens on Tatooine.

The Battle of Taanab took place over its skies five months after the Battle of Yavin. In the battle, Lando Calrissian defeated attacking pirate raiders from Norulac against the Banthal Company docks.[1]

Taanab joined the New Republic sometime prior 7 ABY. It was a New Republic stronghold during the Hunt for Zsinj.[1] The planet was attacked by Imperial forces during the Thrawn campaign. During the attack, the Dark Jedi Joruus C'baoth took control of the Imperial I-class Star Destroyer Bellicose and used the ship's turbolasers to destroy a New Republic ship against the orders of Captain Aban.[5]

Years later, Jedi Knight Jaden Korr went to Taanab to discover more about the operations going on in its spaceport by the Disciples of Ragnos. Jaden battled a mutant rancor which the Disciples intended to release in a populated place so they could pillage the area during the chaos.[2]

Taanab became a New Republic, and later Galactic Alliance, stronghold during the Yuuzhan Vong War and was not attacked by the invaders.[1] A native of Taanab, Rogue Squadron veteran Wes Janson created the Taanab Yellow Aces during the Yuuzhan Vong War and named it after the world.[6]

In 40 ABY, Ben Skywalker traveled to Taanab space during in his pursuit of Ship.[7] In 44 ABY, a royal Hapan fleet transporting refugees from the Jedi Academy on Ossus halted at some point above Taanab. The Millennium Falcon left the Dragon Queen II there to join the liberation of Coruscant.[8]

Behind the scenesEdit

In the Star Wars Roleplaying Game Revised Core Rulebook, the Tales of the Jedi, the PC games Jedi Knight: Jedi Academy, and the Star Wars: Rebellion, the planet is misspelled Tanaab. Also, in Omnibus: X-Wing Rogue Squadron Volume 2, Taanab is misspelled Taanad.

Additionally, Rebellion mistakenly places Taanab in Farfin sector, a misspelling of the true Farrfin sector, within the Core Worlds.

During the development of the MMORPG Star Wars Galaxies, the developers apparently considered using Taanab as one of the planets that can be explored by players in the game. The creation of the planet was canceled for unknown reasons, however some files of the released game still contain textures and other data relating to what was to be Taanab.
