Publisher Comments:

The Star Wars "RM" Essential Guides have given legions of fans the ultimate inside scoop on the characters, the vehicles and vessels, and the weapons and technology that are part of the legendary Star Wars universe. And now the tradition continues with this definitive guide to the exotic locations where the epic adventures of Star Wars are played out.

From the Corellian Sector to the Outer Rim Territories and beyond, this richly informative guide offers in-depth explorations of the top 100 worlds out of the 100 million that the Star Wars galaxy encompasses. Besides such well-known worlds as the arid Tatooine, home of Luke Skywalker; the frigid Hoth, site of a fierce Rebel/Imperial skirmish; and the swamp-filled Dagobah, where Jedi master Yoda holds forth; key planets include Kashyyyk, the treacherous jungle-covered home of the Wookiee race; Bespin, the gas planet in whose atmosphere hovers the formidable Cloud City; and Coruscant, the absolute center of power in the galaxy and seat of the dreaded Empire.

Packed with facts, filled with detailed illustrations of the planets and their inhabitants, and featuring a time line of major events in Star Wars history, "Star Wars: The Essential Guide To Planets And Moons" is an important addition to the growing library of literature devoted to a science fiction classic.

 ¸  Coruscant--center of power, law, history, and culture in the galaxy . . . and once the location of Imperial City, the seat of the dreaded Empire
