Description: Niamos was a world with tropical oceans and beaches with shallow stairs along them for seating. Just up from the beach were walkways, lines of palm trees, and large buildings. Niamos was a destination for tourists due to the nice accommodations and beach access. During the Galactic Empire's occupation, there was a large courthouse where sentences were delivered out to dissidents.
Niamos became a hotbed for felons who needed to avoid attention and authorities. However, it was later occupied by the Galactic Empire, which brought new laws to the world.
Following his actions during the mission on Aldhani, Cassian Jeron Andor visited the planet. While traveling to a store on Niamos, Andor was mistakenly apprehended by patrolling shoretroopers and KX-series security droids, after which he was falsely charged with civil disruption, anti-Imperial speech, and fleeing the scene of anti-Imperial activity, which resulted in him receiving a prison sentence of six years on Narkina 5. Eventually Andor escaped from the prison, along with his former inmate Ruescott Melshi, and returned to Niamos to recover his stuff, and bid farewell to Melshi.
Places of Interest
Arkie's was a store situated along the beach on Pier Nine at Niamos, run by a male individual named Arkie. Windi, a Human who was in a relationship with Cassian Andor when the latter was at Niamos, asked Andor to drop by Arkie's when he went out and get the new flavors of an unspecified food product, as well as peezos and Revnog, as they were out of both. However, before he was able to complete his errand, Andor was apprehended by a shoretrooper right outside the store.
The Niamos courthouse was a building on the planet Niamos which was used for the trials of those arrested by Imperial forces on the planet. In 5 BBY Cassian Andor was tried in this building following his arrest by imperial coastal defender stormtroopers, and was sentenced to six years in the Narkina 5 Imperial Prison Complex.
The Niamos Courthouse included a large hearing room where trials took place, including a tall desk for the presiding judge and one for a secretary equipped with an automated typewriter which he used to write sentencing cards with as well as a holopad screen. There was also a large red banner behind the judge, bearing the Imperial crest. The room was staffed with coastal defender stormtroopers carrying zap rods during trials to keep the prisoners in order. Behind the building was a small yard where at least three Imperial prisoner transport ships could land and take off from. Prisoners were escorted to a staircase leading to the barge landing pads, from where they were directed to the barge headed to the prison they would serve their sentence in.
A hotel was located on the planet Niamos. After Cassian Andor left Ferrix he reloacated himself to Niamos, under the alias of Keef Girgo. One day, after sharing a room with a woman named Windi, Andor was apprehended by a shoretrooper there because he acted suspiciously, and sentenced for six years on Narkina 5. Eventually, Andor escaped from the prison, and returned to Niamos and recovered his stuff from the hotel.
Pier Nine was a location at Niamos. Cassian Andor was apprehended by a shoretrooper there because he acted suspiciously.
