Star Wars: The Long Shot Campaign
Alderaan, located in the Core Worlds, was a terrestrial planet covered with mountains. During the waning decades of the Galactic Republic, it was ruled by Queen Breha Organa and represented in the Galactic Senate by her husband, Senator Bail Organa.
Following the rise of Sheev Palpatine’s Galactic Empire, Alderaan played a pivotal role in the establishment of the Rebel Alliance, a movement that sought to restore the Old Republic’s values. Because of its ties with the Alliance, the planet was destroyed by the Empire.
