Dantooine base
General information

11 ABY




This Rebel base was the first base used by the Alliance to Restore the Republic and was located on the planet Dantooine in 2 BBY. It was prefabricated and located near the Jedi Enclave, where it was intended only to be a temporary base for the Alliance. They abandoned it when an Imperial listening device was discovered in the cargo of a vessel docking there in 1 BBY.[1] Leia Organa revealed its existence to the Empire when she was captured, but a survey team soon found it and confirmed that it had been abandoned and was not the current Rebel base as she had claimed.[2]

Leia, Mon Mothma and Ackbar, would all secretly visit it again in 1 ABY, where they employed an unknown spacer to fulfill a number of tasks.

In 11 ABY it was completly destroyed from orbital bombardment by Imperial Admiral Natasi Daala.

The abandoned base on Dantooine
Inside the base
Leia and Ackbar

This massive but seemingly empty area of structures that once housed the main base of the Rebel Alliance a year before the Battle of Yavin, though now it is now abandoned. Or is it?

Amongst the scattered articles of clothing and weaponry, there are rumors that a few Rebels remain behind to keep an eye on the place. It is even possible that the Alliance still coordinates attacks againt the Empire out of this sprawling ruin, though of course this has never been confirmed.

Star Wars Lore

During the Galactic Civil War, the Rebel Alliance established Dantooine as their headquarters, establishing a prefabricated base in the ruins of the old Jedi Enclave and using the planet as a staging post for starfighter strikes — most famously, the Battle of Danuta for the recovery of the Death Star plans.

After the Alliance's relocation to Yavin 4, Princess Leia tried to fool Grand Moff Tarkin into believing that the main Rebel base was still located on Dantooine, attempting to spare her homeworld of Alderaan from the destructive power of the Empire's newest weapon. Tarkin replied that Dantooine was too remote to use as an effective demonstration of the Death Star (the deciding factor here seemed to be a political and social impact rather than military necessity). Subsequently, the Empire took over the vacated Alliance base and discovered the Jedi cloning facility in the ruins, using it as a research base in an attempt to develop rapid cloning procedures.
