Affiliation

Gyndine was a planet in the Expansion Regions. While not a great galactic powerhouse to compare with the major centers of the Core Worlds, it was a local administrative center, and had mid-sized, advanced shipyards.

History

Kuat Drive Yards maintained research shipyards in orbit of the planet. Before her discovery by Anakin Skywalker, the astromech R4-P17 was almost destroyed in an accident involving a trash compactor there.

Prior to the Clone Wars, in 22 BBY, a slaving operation was uncovered in the city of Yractos on Gyndine, where a Thalassian slaver was attempting to sell twelve Twi'lek slaves. During plea bargain sessions with the slaver, Jurisconsult Temlet Dodann uncovered evidence that four Outer Rim senators had also been involved with the slavers.

During the Clone Wars, the Galactic Republic opened a droid reclamation plant on Gyndine.

During the Galactic Civil War, Gyndine was the headquarters of Moff Bin Essada, whose responsibilities also included the Circarpous Major system.

During the Imperial Civil War, Gyndine protected itself by becoming a fortress world. It guarded itself with a powerful planetary shield and maintained a defense fleet of thirty starships.

Eventually, Gyndine agreed to join the New Republic. During the Yuuzhan Vong War, the planet agreed to accept refugees, only to be attacked and conquered by the Yuuzhan Vong. During the battle, the extragalactic invaders deployed Fire Breathers which burned Gyndine's forests and boiled its lakes. The New Republic later raided the world.

Just before the end of the war, Boba Fett and his Mandalorian Protectors, whom he had taken command of following the death of Fenn Shysa, arrived at Gyndine. Deploying Meteor-class Q-Carriers and Pursuer Enforcement Ships from a Mandalorian dungeon ship, they were able to reclaim the world from its conquerors.

In 40 ABY, Gyndine's shipyard facilities, under the control of the Galactic Alliance, were assaulted by a Confederation task force and damaged.

Behind the scenes

The well-known 1978 blueprints by Geoffrey Mandel name Gyndine as the site of the shipyard where the prototype of the "Star Destroyer Imperator Class" was built, but it is unclear whether these plans were an official publication.
