Affiliation

Rendili was a planet in the Core Worlds and one of the Core Founders of the Galactic Republic. The planet was ruled by an Arch-Provost. It was the headquarters of Rendili StarDrive, founded in 20,000 BBY, and was affiliated with the starshipwrights Rendili Hyperworks[1], Rendili/Vanjervalis Drive Yards[2]and Golan Arms joint venture. At some point during the Mandalorian Wars a Republic Military installation housing thousands of troops, vehicles, and starfighters was stationed outside of the major cities, though by the time of the Clone Wars the installation had been all but forgotten.

History

In 3,000 BBY, in response to the seventeenth war of the Alsakan Conflicts, Rendili StarDrive teamed up with Vaufthau Shipyards, Ltd. to produce the Invincible-class dreadnaught. The company's peak was c. 100 BBY. Popular designs included the Dreadnaught-class heavy cruiser (prior to 100 BBY) and Victory-class Star Destroyer (20 BBY). In 44 BBY it contributed ships and crew to Senator Ranulph Tarkin's paramilitary force.

With the advent of the Clone Wars at the Battle of Geonosis in 22 BBY, in response to Kuat Drive Yards's competitive lead for the Republic new military contracts, its Arch-Provost ordered countless industrial spies and starship designers to design new designs to counter those of Kuat. The planet's extensive system of smaller shipyards scattered across the Mid Rim and Outer Rim Territories gave Rendili StarDrive a temporary ascendancy. Later, the two rival companies teamed up to worked on the Victor Initiative Project which produced the Victory I-class Star Destroyers.

In 20 BBY, the planet was taken over by an Independent Provisional Government that joined the Confederacy of Independent Systems. A Republic task force captured the planet's Home Defense Fleet, and presumably retook Rendili shortly after. The planet became part of the Galactic Empire in 19 BBY. In 18 BBY, the RSD signed the Corporate Sector Authority's Imperial charter in the Dragonbird Gardens of Aargau. After RSD accepted its last major Imperial contract on 10 ABY, the planet Rendili joined the New Republic. RSD went on to manufacture the Republic-class Star Destroyer.
