Description: Pallaxides was a planet of the Ojoster sector in the Outer Rim. It was owned by TaggeCo, who used it as a resort world.

Pallaxides was a private planet owned by TaggeCo where starships were not supposed to come without an express invitation. Used as a resort world, TaggeCo took its privacy seriously, even to the extent of ignoring distress calls. The planet was constantly guarded by three IPV-1 System Patrol Craft which escorted all incoming civilian ships.

Pallaxides was approximately 12 hours away from Celanon with hyperspace travel.

History
After the bombing of Syndaar Military Prep School by the Ho'Din terrorist Ort Hoogra-D'En, System Sub-Commander Jared Brojtal went to Pallaxides with the Carrack-class light cruiser Marduk to seek revenge for the death of his son. He found Hoogra-D'en's base, which was defended by Aqualish mercenaries and spore bombs, and attacked it with TIE/LN starfighters and TIE/rc starfighters. During the attack, Hoogra-D'En planned to use the Gymsnor-3 light freighter Batattis to escape, using two fleeing YT-1300 light freighters as decoys.

Pallaxides was later freed by a New Republic fleet led by General Han Solo after a long campaign in 13 ABY.

Fauna
Pallaxides had a number of large predators but none were considered a threat to travelers. However, several dangerous off-world animals, such as shredder bats and zuxu, were imported for the sporting interests of TaggeCo executives. Their introduction was made without regard to the possible long-term ecological effects.

The largest animal native to the planet was the docile rormaroo, which was used as a beast of burden.

Places of Interest
Spacers' Town
Spacers' Town was a small section of the TaggeCo. starport on Pallaxides. It boasted only a single hotel and restaurant, and catered to freighter crews waiting for their cargos to be unloaded.

Ort Hoogra-D'En's base
Ort Hoogra-D'En maintained a base on the planet Pallaxides during the Galactic Civil War. He used the location as a base of operations to harvest tamack to build spore bombs to conduct a campaign of terrorism against the Galactic Empire. The base was protected by fahla, a sensor-dampening water plant that allowed Hoogra-D'en to hide the base's power generator and starships. The based was attacked by the Empire in retaliation for the bombing of the Syndaar Military Prep School.

Imperial research facility (Pallaxides)
During the Galactic Civil War, the Galactic Empire maintained a research facility on the Tagge Company-owned world Pallaxides. The facility was located in the lowlands near the equator, and also included a spaceport. Three system patrol craft maintained a five hundred kilometer exclusion zone around the installation.

TaggeCo. starport
The TaggeCo. starport was a vacation center on the Tagge Company-owned planet Pallaxides. Consisting of dozens of landing pads, the spaceport also included a hotel, restaurants, recreation and sporting facilities. Spacers' Town was a small section of the port that catered to freighter crews on layover.
