The Works was the name of a large industrial area of Coruscant. The area was located in the Dacho District,[1] which was close to the Senate District and next to the Fobosi District. It was an immense manufacturing center for many companies, who would later abandon the planet for cheap labor and off-world facilities. Prospective urban developers released stone mites, duracrete slugs, and conduit worms into The Works, in an attempt to clear the area out so it could be purchased and refurbished.

HistoryEdit

SithLair TheWorks

Dooku meets with his Master in the LiMerge Building.

At the start of the Clone Wars, Count Dooku arrived at the Works to inform his Master, Darth Sidious, that the war between the Republic and Separatists had begun. The Dark Lord was pleased at the news, as it was a step closer to the completion of the Sith's Grand Plan.[2]

In 20 BBY, Sidious summoned Dooku back to the Works in response to Yoda's presence on Korriban. Initiating a Sith ritual using Dooku's blood to draw on his Force bond with his old Master and feeding it with Force lightning, they were able to draw the Jedi Grand Master into an illusion were he, Anakin Skywalker and a squad of clones were on their way to the Works to apprehend the Sith Lords, the intent being to break Yoda's spirit. However, the attempt failed.

Towards the end of the Clone Wars, Republic Intelligence working with the Jedi Order traced the Separatists back to the LiMerge Power building, a large tower in the center of The Works. It was soon verified that Count Dooku and possibly even the elusive Darth Sidious himself had used this location until recent times.[3]

Two squads infiltrated the building, Aurek Team led by Mace Windu and Bacta Team led by Shaak Ti.[3]

Traveling through a twenty-square-kilometer area of The Works called the Grungeon Block, which had once housed production centers for Serv-O-Droid, Inc., Hunvicko, and Nebula Manufacturing, Mace Windu led a team in search of Darth Sidious, rumored to be manipulating the Galactic Senate and leading the Separatist movement from the Republic capital world itself.[3]

Count Dooku spent much of his time in The Works mastering the teachings of the Sith. Even Darth Maul was possibly trained in The Works. The area around the LiMerge Power building was littered with a small number of destroyed combat droids, all bisected with a lightsaber.

The Works generator

An underground power generator in The Works around the time of the Great Galactic War.

By this time The Works was an area to be avoided by most of the population, due to its usual inhabitants of smugglers, squatters, death stick runners, malfunctioning droids, gangsters, undocumented refugees, and Cthons. The majority of The Works' structures were in a severe state of decay, and had been abandoned for centuries. Despite this, many of the facilities were self-powered and continued to produce toxic waste and eerie mechanical sounds across the low-lying factories for a long time after the departure of the owners.

The same area was later used by the Galactic Empire as a manufacturing center for Sienar Fleet Systems TIE Fighters, producing hundreds of starfighters per day.[4] Towards the end of the Yuuzhan Vong War, Galactic Alliance underground forces used this area as a staging ground for the eventual Battle of Yuuzhan'tar.

The Works resembles a location in the Coruscant scenes in the alternate dark side ending of Star Wars: Jedi Knight: Dark Forces II. Note, however, that in Jedi Knight the Imperial Palace appears instead of the LiMerge Power building.
