The Unifying Force
Garqi is an agriworld and the sector capital of Tadrin subsector, in the Outer Rim Territories. Natural elements in Garqi’s crust give the native plant life a purple coloration. It is the source of many beans used to make caf.
Garqi was aligned by the Confederacy of Independent Systems during the Clone Wars. During the Outer Rim Sieges in the late stages of this war, the Confederacy of Independent Systems battled Republic forces on Garqi. In response, the Galactic Republic sent an army under the Jedi General Traavis. A squad of Clone commandos, Aiwha Squad, was responsible for the Republic victory on Garqi. Their exploits included recovering victims of war from the planet’s numerous villages who they escorted to the Republic encampment on the planet. Although the incoming deactivation of all Separatist droid forces would ultimately mean victory for the Grand Army of the Republic, General Traavis would be lost during the conflict when Aiwha Squad murdered him due to the execution of Order 66.
Prior to the Battle of Endor in 4 ABY, the Galactic Empire established a military garrison on the planet. Despite the destruction of the second Death Star, the Empire still held on to Garqi, keeping its inhabitants in check through the Garqi Eagle Squadron. However, the population continued to resist the Empire, with much of the movement originating from the Garqi Agricultural University, located near the planetary capital of Pesktda.
After Corran Horn left the Corellian Security Force, he came to Garqi on the run from the Empire. The University students knew him through his droid, Whistler. Working undercover as an aide to Imperial Prefect Mosh Barris, Corran helped many political prisoners escape from Garqi. Two of the prisoners were Dynba Tesc and the Duros trader Lai Nootka. After the Empire was driven from Garqi, the planet joined the New Republic.
