Taloraan City, also known as Cloud City, was the capital city of Taloraan and one of the sites of the battle above Taloraan. It featured several tall, spire-like buildings atop a massive repulsorlift generator, similar to technologies used on Bespin.
Taloraan City, sometimes referred to as Cloud City, was a city floating in the atmosphere of the gas giant Taloraan. The city was home to a series of tibanna gas mining facilities. During the Clone Wars, it was visited by Obi-Wan Kenobi and Anakin Skywalker on a diplomatic mission.
Galactic Civil WarEdit
At one point during the rule of the Galactic Empire, Kasan Moor, commander of the 128th TIE Interceptor Squadron, scouted out the city, considering a possible Imperial takeover of the city and its resources. While the surrounding mining platforms were handed over to the Empire, the city itself was left alone, as it was too small. During the Galactic Civil War, Commander Luke Skywalker led Rogue Squadron to destroy most of the Imperial-owned tibanna gas in an attempt to weaken the local Moff Kohl Seerdon's resources.
Behind the scenesEdit
Taloraan City first appeared in the 1998 video game Star Wars: Rogue Squadron. Star Wars: Rogue Squadron: The Official Nintendo Player's Guide mistakenly refers to the structure as "Cloud City."
