Thrawn's fleet attacks the shipyards.

The Bilbringi Shipyards, or the Bilbringi repair yards, were a major military production facility first controlled by the Galactic Empire, then later the New Republic. Located in orbit with the asteroid Bilbringi VII, the shipyards were a mass of dockyard platforms, partially built ships, and construction vehicles.



Bilbringi and its shipyards were a major component of Grand Admiral Thrawn's war machine. He turned the facility, under the command of General Drost, almost exclusively to the production of Star Destroyers. Several times during the Thrawn Crisis, smugglers infiltrated the yards to sabotage ships.

In 9 ABY, Talon Karrde and his crew saw the Empire working on a group of asteroids which were being outfitted with cloaking devices. Karrde would later give the data to the New Republic after Thrawn used the asteroids to lay siege on Coruscant.

Bilbringi was the site of the showdown between Thrawn's forces and the New Republic – though the Republic took heavy losses, in the end they were victorious and captured the shipyards. The Executor-class Star Dreadnought Lusankya was taken there after it was captured by the Republic and repaired.

During the Yuuzhan Vong War, the shipyards built vessels for the Republic. Two Imperial-class Star Destroyers were near completion as of 27 ABY. Five cruisers and fifteen corvettes constituted a quarter of the defense fleet station there, which also included the Dauntless. When Han Solo and Leia Organa Solo visited the shipyards in the hopes of convincing General Muun to aid in the defense of Vray refugees, the shipyards were constructing some five hundred vessels. They were taken sometime in 27 ABY. They were later targeted by the Galactic Alliance during Operation Trinity, but the mission failed due to a combination of factors.

Ten years after the Yuuzhan Vong surrendered, Jacen Solo as Darth Caedus used the Shipyards as a bargaining chip for the Imperial Remnant to join the Confederation War.

Behind the scenes

The PC game Star Wars: Rebellion names the Bilbringi Shipyards as the "Imperial Shipyards," claiming that the bulk of the Imperial Navy was crafted there. Kuat Drive Yards, in fact, holds this distinction.
