Thyferra was a hot, humid planet located in the Polith system on the Rimma Trade Route, on which most of the galaxy's bacta was produced. It was also a major political power as bacta production was an essential commodity.



Rogue Squadron's Thyferra attack.

Thyferra was the homeworld of the Vratix people. The Vratix had already colonized many celestial bodies in the Polith system when they were in first contact with the Galactic Republic. Since the Vratix had discovered how to create bacta from alazhi and kavam, the planet became an important Republic world, drawing profit-hungry human colonists. The Vratix shared the secret of bacta production with their Human neighbors, who eventually gained control of the bacta industry and hired many of the natives as workers in their bacta plants.

As a result, Thyferra was almost completely controlled by two Human-run corporations: Zaltin and Xucphra. These two corporations were chosen by Emperor Palpatine to supply the Empire's bacta, thus eliminating any real competition in the bacta market.

The Rebel Alliance's bacta supply on the planet was a target set by Grand Moff Kohl Seerdon. In 2 ABY, after setting a diversion on Sullust, he raided the planet to prevent Alliance bacta from reaching the group. However, the plot was thwarted by Rogue Squadron.


In 7 ABY, Ysanne Isard backed a coup that saw a pro-Imperial faction taking over Thyferra. The faction later elected her head of state, allowing her to remain in lawfull power, eliminate the Zaltin, control the bacta industry, and start a small but important conflict known as the Bacta War. During the Battle of Thyferra, Rogue Squadron and its allies, operating at the time independent from the New Republic—which for political reasons could not directly interfere—liberated Thyferra from the Empire and imperial loyalists using guerilla tactics, pluck, and native allies.

Thyferra later joined the Killiks in the Swarm War, the New Jedi Order being unable to defend it from a coup orchestrated by the Killiks. Following the end of the war, Thyferra reverted to Alliance control.
