Taanab

Movies DictionaryStar Wars Dictionary
Points of interest on the agricultural planet Taanab include the Pandath spaceport and the Banthal Company orbital docking array, where the largest cargo ships are typically found. Four thousand years ago, the freighter Kestrel Nova was captured from space pirates near Taanab and was used by Ulic Qel-Droma to travel to the Tetan system. Millennia later, the planet found itself plagued by annual raids of bandits from Norulac. One year, Lando Calrissian happened to be at the Pandath spaceport when the pirates arrived for their latest assault. Calrissian, on a bet, agreed to attack the raiders, and hid his ship in the ice ring surrounding Taanab's moon while he waited for the pirates to make their run on the docking array. When his target was in position, Calrissian ejected his cargo-- hundreds of Conner nets-- into the center of the attacking fleet. As the pirates struggled to untangle themselves, the cocky gambler hit them with tractored ice blocks from the moon's ring and caused even further damage. Finally, Calrissian led the Taanab defense fleet in their clean-up operation, and single-handedly accounted for nineteen kills. Though the Taanab portmaster offered him a permanent job, Calrissian declined, preferring instead to investigate his newly-won deed to a Clendoran brewery. Later, just prior to the Battle of Endor, Calrissian was promoted to Alliance general partly on the notoriety of this incident. Over five years later, Joruus C'baoth coordinated an Imperial attack on Taanab, where he used the Bellicose's turbolasers to destroy a New Republic ship over the direct orders of Captain Aban.
