Rebel Base On Dantooine

The Dantooine Rebel base was the first base used by the Alliance to Restore the Republic and was located on the planet Dantooine 2 years before the Battle of Yavin. It was prefabricated and located near the Jedi Enclave, where it was intended only to be a temporary base for the Alliance.

The Rebels used the planet as a staging post for starfighter strikes—most famously, the Battle of Danuta, for the recovery of the Death Star plans.

The Rebels abandoned the base and evacuated Dantooine in a single day when an Imperial listening device was discovered in the cargo of a vessel docking there a year before the Battle of Yavin. Leia Organa revealed its existence to the Empire when she was captured, but a survey team soon found it and confirmed that it had been abandoned and was not the current Rebel base as she had claimed.

Leia, Mon Mothma and Ackbar, would all secretly visit the base again a year after the Battle of Yavin, where they employed an unknown spacer to fulfill a number of tasks.

11 years after the Battle of Yavin it was completely destroyed from orbital bombardment by Imperial Admiral Natasi Daala.
