Yaga Minor was the Galactic Republic member world from which the Outbound Flight project departed into the Unknown Regions in 27 BBY. The planet's primary native species were the Yagai, insectoids with a hive-caste society. Yaga Minor was known throughout the galaxy for its major shipbuilding facilities.

History

Inter- Sith Wars Period

During the Inter-Sith Wars Period fallen Jedi turned Sith, Darth Desolous, was lured to Yaga Minor along with his army. Once lured to the world Desolous and his army engaged a small number of Jedi Knights. Shortly after the start of the conflict, a Jedi flotilla dropped out of hyperspace preventing the Sith and his army's escape. Outnumbered and out matched by the Jedi's forces Desolous was destroyed along side his forces.[3]

Pre-Clone Wars

The Jedi vessel Outbound Flight was launched from Yaga Minor in 27 BBY, under the command of Jedi Master Jorus C'baoth. It had 50,000 colonists destined for the Unknown Regions. It failed as a result of Darth Sidious's machinations.

Imperial Remnant

The planet was one of the last strongholds of the Imperial Remnant. It featured a major cluster of shipyards that proved instrumental in Grand Admiral Thrawn's campaign against the New Republic, and was also the site of an important Ubiqtorate base.

At the time of the signing of the Pellaeon-Gavrisom Treaty in 19 ABY, Yaga Minor was the last shipyard under Imperial control. It was governed by Moff Kurlen Flennic. Just before the signing of the treaty, Yaga Minor was the site of the last battle of the Galactic Civil War.

Yuuzhan Vong War

During the Yuuzhan Vong War, Imperial forces fleeing from Bastion regrouped here before facing the Yuuzhan Vong at Borosk. A third of the Yuuzhan Vong fleet defeated there jumped to attack the shipyards, though they were repelled in short order.

Behind the scenes

Yaga Minor is clearly described in the novels Specter of the Past and Vision of the Future as being part of the Imperial Remnant, not far from the capital Bastion, the Imperial Remnant being a small group of star systems in the Outer Rim Territories. However, the PC game Star Wars: Rebellion mistakenly places Yaga Minor in the Sesswenna sector (a misspelling of the true Seswenna sector) of the Galactic Core, in close proximity to Coruscant. The Seswenna sector is actually located in the Outer Rim.
