The planet this base was on, was first scouted by the Rebel Alliance between the Battle of Hoth and the Battle of Endor. The Alliance maintained it as an outpost, but as the organization restored the Republic and concluded its war with the Galactic Empire, the base was largely unused.
As war with the First Order became a possibility almost 29 years after the Galactic Civil War, the Resistance, a military organization patterned after the Rebel Alliance, began to use the base. It was from this base the Resistance sent a strike force to destroy the First Order's Starkiller Base.
