Hoth

Despite this world being known as one of the most remote and lifeless planets in the galaxy, Hoth is habitable, which makes it popular with smugglers and pirates. This changed recently with the system being the location of a devastating military battle. At the height of the Great War, Republic and Imperial fleets clashed in the Hoth system in a decisive battle which saw the destruction of some of the most advanced and powerful starships in the galaxy. Now the Republic and Empire are struggling to pick up the pieces while fighting off each other as well as local outlaws looking to make a profit selling any kind of superpower secrets.

History

Very little is known about the sixth planet of the Hoth System. It is thought that the Infinite Empire was the first to discover this world and perhaps even colonize it. This is evidenced by the existence of Rakata Artifacts found on the icy world. The only other noteworthy event know to take place in this system was the Battle to take place between The Empire and the Republic during the Great Galactic War.

In the aftermath of the battle, the icy planet of Hoth became a massive starship graveyard, littered with the wreckage of hundreds of warships from both sides, including several prototype ships the Republic had deployed in the hope of turning the tide of the war. As the war raged on, though, neither the Republic nor the Empire had the time and resources to mount a recovery operation.

Upon learning of the wealth of technology abandoned on Hoth, an ambitious pirate confederation started their own salvage operation. They brought an army of droids and mercenaries and began looting all useful remnants from the wreckage in an effort to piece together their own battle cruisers and create a pirate armada.

In the wake of the Treaty of Coruscant, however, both Republic and Empire have returned to reclaim what’s left of their war machines, and Hoth has become a point of considerable contention. Despite the peace and the planet’s remote location, skirmishes have broken out often, and now both superpowers have become entrenched, committed to fighting for Hoth until the cold, bitter end.
