Talus Secta was the closest hyperspace point to the Talus Space Station. It was considered to be an incredibly dangerous area. The Galactic Empire, attempting to catch traveling Rebel sympathizers off-guard, kept a vigilant stand point very close by. Learning of the Empire's intentions, the Rebel Alliance responded by stationing guards next to the Talus Seta, hoping to fight off the Empire and make travel safe for the Rebellion and Rebel allies. The ongoing war between the two factions made traveling to the Talus Secta dangerous for both Rebel and Imperial pilots alike.
