Borleias was the fourth planet in the Pyria system. Every year it went through a meteor shower. It was poor in natural resources.



The jungle planet, with beautiful beaches and seas, was the site of an Alderaan Biotics operation established about 700 BBY. The Galactic Republic established a small base on the world, using it as a waypoint for transport to the Corporate Sector.

General Derricote and Borleian scientist.

Under the Galactic Empire, the Alderaan Biotics facility was converted into a blackmarket production facility by General Evir Derricote before he was transferred to Coruscant to create the Krytos virus for Ysanne Isard. The world was otherwise left largely alone. To prevent Rebel incursion to the world (a possible stepping-stone to the Core Worlds), the Empire expanded its military base, including four ion cannons and two TIE Fighter squadrons.

Calling it the code name "Blackmoon", the New Republic finally captured the world with three battles in 6.5 ABY, using it as a branch for the Invasion of Coruscant.

After the capture of Borleias, the New Republic established a fighter training base on the planet.

In 7 ABY the surviving members of Wraith Squadron took leave on one of the planet's beaches to celebrate after the destruction of Admiral Apwar Trigit and his Imperial-class Star Destroyer Implacable in the Battle of Ession.

In 27.5 ABY, during the Yuuzhan Vong War, Borleias served as a New Republic fortress that was twice taken by the Yuuzhan Vong.

In 40 ABY, Jacen Solo offered Borleias and Bilbringi to the Imperial Remnant if they supported the Galactic Alliance at the Second Battle of Fondor, considering Pellaeon and the Moff Council took up on his offer it is assumed that both planets were transferred over to Remnant control.
