Alderaan was a terrestial world in the Core Worlds region of the galaxy.


Alderaan became one of the earliest members of the Galactic Republic and was known to be a prestigious, peaceful world, focusing on art and culture. The people of Alderaan were known to help other worlds in need and during the Clone Wars arranged a conference on war refugees.

Senator Bail Organa supported Supreme Chancellor Sheev Palpatine during the Wars, but after the Chancellor amassed more and more power during the conflict, his loyalty turned. Towards the end of the war, Organa collaborated with other senators to oppose Palpatine if he refused to give up his wartime powers.

After Palpatine transformed the Republic into the Galactic Empire and declared himself Emperor, Organa began organizing rebel groups and supplying them with warships and other materiel. Alderaan became a hotbed of rebel activity, which brought about the planet's end. After completing the Death Star battlestation, Grand Moff Tarkin targeted Alderaan and destroyed the planet in one shot. Despite intending its destruction to be a show of force to other rebellious star systems, Alderaan became a martyr to the rebel cause.
