Taanab was a planet of green meadows in the Taanab system. It was primarily used for agriculture and farming. Its populace was known for always maintaining an air of formality. Taanab had problems with seasonal pirate raids from bandits striking from the planet Norulac for millennia prior to the Battle of Taanab.



First colonized in 2,320 BBY, Taanab was once a world covered in thick, inhospitable jungle, similar to Felucia. During the New Sith Wars, the Brotherhood of Darkness captured the planet. The planet was especially known for its roba steak. Captain Mullinore was from the world. Eventually the Jedi Order established a chapter house for the Agricultural Corps in the capital city of Pandath.

Huff Darklighter once employed farmers from Taanab, as well as Bandomeer and Salliche, to staff his underground hydroponic gardens on Tatooine.

The Battle of Taanab took place over its skies five months after the Battle of Yavin. In the battle, Lando Calrissian defeated attacking pirate raiders from Norulac.

Years later, Jedi Knight Jaden Korr went to Taanab to discover more about the operations going on there by the Disciples of Ragnos. Jaden battled a mutant rancor which the Disciples intended to release in a populated place so they could pillage the area during the chaos.

Rogue Squadron veteran Wes Janson was a native of Taanab. He named the Taanab Yellow Aces after the world.

Behind the scenes

In the Star Wars RPG: Revised Core Rulebook, the Tales of the Jedi, the PC games Jedi Knight: Jedi Academy, and the Star Wars: Rebellion, the planet is misspelled Tanaab. Also, in Omnibus: X-wing Rogue Squadron Volume 2, Taanab is misspelled Taanad.

Additionally, Rebellion mistakenly places Taanab in Farfin sector, a misspelling of the true Farrfin sector, within the Galactic Core.

During the development of the MMORPG Star Wars Galaxies, the developers apparently considered using Taanab as one of the planets that can be explored by players in the game. The creation of the planet was canceled for unknown reasons, however some files of the released game still contain textures and other data relating to what was to be Taanab.

From SWG Wiki

A planet that never fully made it into SWG. Players found it in the .TRE files on TC years ago, and since then, a number of youtube video's surfaced showing players exploring the low quality planet. It is unkown whether SOE will ever introduce this planet into the SWG universe.
