"We are approaching the planet Yavin. The Rebel base is on a moon on the far side. We are preparing to orbit the planet."
―An Imperial to Wilhuff Tarkin, via intercom[src]

Yavin was a gas giant located in the Outer Rim Territories.[1] It was orbited by twenty-six moons,[2] three of which were habitable.[6] One of those moons, Yavin 4, once housed the ancient Massassi warriors.[1] Seen from space or from the surface of its moons, Yavin had a distinct red hue. During the Galactic Civil War, Yavin 4 was almost destroyed by the first Death Star.[4]
