Description: Black Spire Outpost (BSO), commonly known as Black Spire, was an outpost on the planet Batuu on the edge of the Outer Rim Territories. It was one of the last stops before Wild Space and the Unknown Regions. The outpost was named for the giant petrified trees that towered over it, and one in particular that was colored black, the Black Spire.

Black Spire Outpost was located on the planet Batuu in the Outer Rim Territories and was considered one of the last stops before Wild Space and the Unknown Regions. Its name was derived from the petrified remains of ancient trees turned into gray and brown stone spires that were large enough to tower over the outpost, with the eponymous Black Spire standing out due to its black hue and smooth texture reminiscent of volcanic glass.

Before the invention of hyperspace travel, Batuu was a busy stop for travelers to trade or refuel as they passsed through the Outer Rim or journeyed into Wild Space. However, with the rise of the hyperdrive and new hyperspace routes that bypassed the planet, it instead became home to those who did not want to be found. The outpost evolved into a thriving spaceport for smugglers, rogue traders, and adventurers traveling between the galactic frontier and uncharted space. Eventually, Chandrila Star Line began operating luxury cruises in the region for travelers who sought adventure and comfort on their expeditions.

In 232 BBY, Jedi Initiates Kai Brightstar, Lys Solay, and Nubs of the Tenoo Jedi Temple traveled to Black Spire Outpost with Jedi Padawan Celesta Kami of the Batuu Jedi Temple. While in search of tools to purchase for Kami's master, Carver Drow, the group found property developer Ozon Nimbee presenting to Black Spire residents on potential developments. Nimbee sought to construct buildings with unobstructed views of the Batuuan skies, which would necessitate cutting down very spires central to the outpost's identity. Despite of the refusal of the outpost residents, Nimbee tested using sabotage droids to cut down several spires near the outpost. The Jedi, witnessing the test, confronted Nimbee, who was berated by the townsfolk. Believing the only way to get buy-in for his plans was to cut down the spires within the outpost without permission, Nimbee released a swarm of his buzz droids on Black Spire Outpost. The Jedi and townsfolk fought the swarm of droids, destroying many of them. Soon, Drow arrived to destroy several more with his lightsaber and the Force. One droid, however, escaped notice before completely transecting the spire overlooking the milk stand. As the upper portion of the enormous spire fell, the Jedi used the Force to prevent it from crushing the milk stand and set it gently on the ground nearby. At some point, the fallen spire was placed upon its base once more, leaving behind the evidence of the clean cut.

In 10 BBY, the pilot droid L3-37 questioned Lando Calrissian's ability to make the Kessel Run when, according to L3-37, he could not successfully fly the Millennium Falcon from "here to Black Spire" without her. Following the war against the Pykes, Daimyo Boba Fett and Master Assassin Fennec Shand traveled to Black Spire on a mission with the aim of finding recruits for the Fett gotra and tracking down members of the Pyke Syndicate. The Mandalorian Din Djarin and his foundling Grogu also traveled to Black Spire at some point.

In 34 ABY, the outpost attracted beings who sought to avoid the expanding reaches of the First Order and its conflict with the Resistance, which had erupted into a war. One such being was the Weequay smuggler Hondo Ohnaka, who brought the modified YT-1300 light freighter named the Millennium Falcon to the outpost and established Ohnaka Transport Solutions, a shipping company that was a front for his smuggling operations. Based out of Docking Bay 5, the company frequently recruited flight crew members among the outpost's new arrivals.

The human mercenary Bazine Netal had been hired to search for the Millennium Falcon and purchase it from whomever had it in their possession. At Oga's Cantina, the smuggler told her stories of his history with the ship to stall for time as a Yarkoran sabacc player secretly contacted Mahjo Reeloo, who owed Ohnaka a favor after an incident in the Undervaults of Gwongdeen. Netal paid Ohnaka for the Falcon and delivered it to Beixander 9, where Reeloo posed as Netal's contact to accept delivery of the ship before returning it to the outpost. Ohnaka notified Chewbacca, a Wookiee and the ship's former co-pilot, that the Falcon was safe from Netal's employers. Though Ohnaka continued to use it for his business, he also expressed certainty that the ship would continue to aid "the good guys."

Ancient ruins just outside of the outpost housed a Resistance base around that same time. Eventually, Supreme Leader Kylo Ren arrived at the outpost and took command of the First Order garrison, having learned that Rey was with a group of Resistance fugitives on Batuu. A battle between the factions took place in the outpost and above the planet.

The population of Black Spire Outpost was around four to five hundred sentient beings by the time of the Clone Wars, although the Jedi Knight Anakin Skywalker observed that it did not appear large enough to support a population of that size. By the time of the Galactic Empire, the outpost was populated by humans, Darshi, Jablogians, and Shistavanens.

Black Spire
The Black Spire, from which the outpost derived its name, was located near the center of the outpost.

Black Spire Outpost Market
The Black Spire Outpost Market was located in Black Spire Outpost on the Outer Rim planet Batuu. Merchants located within the Market included Black Spire Outfitters, Creature Stall, Jewels of Bith, Toydarian Toymaker, and The Wooden Wookiee. Kat Saka's Kettle and Ronto Roasters were eateries.

The Black Spire Outpost Market was an avenue on the Outer Rim planet of Batuu, located within the boundaries of Black Spire Outpost. The street was partially covered with tarps, latticework, and wires strung overhead. Local Batuuans lived in the upper levels, while the lower levels housed local shops, including Black Spire Outfitters, Jewels of Bith, Toydarian Toymaker, and The Wooden Wookiee. Visitors to the area could also purchase a variety of pets or other small animals from the Creature Stall. The quick-service restaurant Ronto Roasters operated next door to the snackfood stand Kat Saka's Kettle.

Water dispensers throughout the Market provided refreshment to visitors, who were often surprised to learn that the plumbing housed Tiny the dianoga. The Black Spire Outpost Obelisk served as a local landmark at the entrance to the Market.

In 34 ABY, Remex Io of the Kendoh Gang once ran through the marketplace trying to evade members of the 709th Legion when they learned of his presence via a tip. Io narrowly evaded them by sending them on a wild bantha chase to the Batuu spaceport, although he ended up ambushed and threatened by Varg shortly afterward.

Black Spire Outpost Obelisk
The Black Spire Outpost Obelisk was a stone obelisk located in Black Spire Outpost on the planet Batuu. It was carved by local artisans with patterns matching those found on the outpost's original buildings. By the time of the war between the First Order and the Resistance, it had become tradition amongst visitors and locals of the outpost to touch the obelisk and say "Til the Spire" for good luck and in hopes of safely returning to the outpost in future.

Black Spire Outfitters
Black Spire Outfitters, also known as Arta's shop, was a clothing store that could be found among the many shops in the market of Black Spire Outpost on Batuu. It was owned by Arta Kleidun and employed the sewing droid GX-8.

Creature Stall
Creature Stall was a shop that could be found in the Black Spire Outpost Market on the Outer Rim planet Batuu. Operated by Bina, an Amani from Utapau, it was used as her home base in Black Spire Outpost for collecting exotic creatures. She often left the shop in the care of her assistants while she traveled off-world. It featured a number of caged animals for purchase, including Kowakian monkey-lizards, porgs, fyrnocks, convorees, loth-cats, and worrts. In 34 ABY, youngling visitors to the stall could receive a free booklet, Bina's Guide to the Creatures of Batuu.

Jewels of Bith
Jewels of Bith was a jewelry stall that could be found among the many shops at the Black Spire Outpost Market in Black Spire Outpost on the planet Batuu. The store had a large assortment of scarves, jewelry, necklaces, handbags, Bloggin-oil lamps, and llim lanterns from Clak'dor VII, Alderaan, Jakku, Ithor, and other parts of the galaxy. It was owned by jeweler Kamka Lira.
In 34 ABY during the war between the First Order and the Resistance, the process of importation became difficult due to the First Order's occupation. Kamka Lira once complained to fellow vender Kasif of his trouble in when trying to import jewelry due to the First Order. The same year, vendors from around Black Spire Outpost bought Resistance spy Vi Moradi a necklace from the shop as a thank you for her defense of Jenda and Oh-li, after the two were harassed by a group of First Order stormtroopers.

Kat Saka's Kettle
Kat Saka's Kettle was a small shop located on the Outer Rim world of Batuu. Situated in Black Spire Outpost's marketplace, the Kettle was owned by Kat Saka, a Batuuan farmer known for collecting various spices throughout the galaxy. Saka made use of several of these spices in the creation of the colorful Outpost Mix, a grain-based snack food sold at the store.

During the conflict between the First Order and the Resistance, Kat Saka's Kettle employed several beings to help operate the food stand. The Kettle also sold souvenir MSE-6 series repair droids, modified to carry a customer's purchase of Outpost Mix, though the droids were known to go out of stock. In addition, the stand offered a selection of drinks that patrons could buy, including bottled water, Coca-Cola, Diet Coke, and Sprite.

Ronto Roasters
Ronto Roasters was a quick service restaurant located on the Outer Rim world of Batuu. Nestled within the market of Black Spire Outpost, Ronto Roasters was operated by butcher and noted podracing fan Bakkar, who decorated the establishment with a number of podracing flags and installed a modified podracer engine which hung from the ceiling at the restaurant's center. Bakkar's modified engine was used as a grill to cook large slabs of ronto meat, a family specialty going back four generations and part of his upbringing on Tatooine, and to roast whole nunas. Items were constantly rotated over the open fire by the former smelter droid known as 8D-J8, who served as the pitmaster and remained in the kitchen. Since thin cuts of meat tended to get dried out by the grill, they were flavored and turned into jerky, including jerky made from nuna turkey and luggabeast meat.
The air around Ronto Roasters smelled of grilled meat, and the restaurant was a favorite of starship crews preparing for their next mission. Among the items served at Ronto Roasters were entrées such as the Ronto Wrap and its breakfast variant, in addition to the Rising Moons Overnight Oats dish. The establishment also sold a selection of Nuna Turkey Jerky, including sweet and spicy varieties. Ronto Roasters offered customers a variety of beverages including Black Caf, Black Spire Hot Chocolate, Coca-Cola, Coruscant Cooler, Diet Coke, meiloorun juice, Sour Sarlacc, Sprite, Surly Sarlacc, Tatooine Sunset, or simply bottled water. On unusually cold days, they served Spiced Surabat Cider.

Toydarian Toymaker
The Toydarian Toymaker was found among the many shops in the Black Spire Outpost Market of Black Spire Outpost on Batuu. It was owned by a Toydarian named Zabaka.

The Wooden Wookiee
The Wooden Wookiee was a booth inside the market in Black Spire Outpost on the planet Batuu. It was owned by the Wookiee male Lunacca, who sold carvings made from wroshyr wood. During their youth, Salju and her pet therii, Elee, visited The Wooden Wookiee and received a gift from Lunacca. When the First Order occupied Black Spire Outpost in 34 ABY, Lunacca had closed The Wooden Wookiee in order to make a supply run to the planet Kashyyyk for more wroshyr wood.

The Wooden Wookiee was a merchant's booth inside Black Spire Outpost's market on the Outer Rim Territories planet Batuu. The small outdoor shop was run by the Wookiee male Lunacca, who was a fourth-generation woodcarver. Lunacca sold various wroshyr wood carvings, including many of the goblets used for specialty drinks at Oga's Cantina, as well as sculptures, wooden creatures, small trinkets, Wookiee shields, and other unique works of art that were popular not only with galactic tourists, but also various other Black Spire Outpost merchants.

The Wookiee shields were made nearly indestructible by wroshyr tree sap. When not working the shop, frequently due to trips to the Wookiee homeworld Kashyyyk for more timber caused by the high demand for his works, Lunacca had The Wooden Wookiee closed, much to the dismay of his patrons, as he worked alone and did not have locals help with customer service during his absence. Most people on Batuu also did not have the strength to whittle wroshyr, and so every item made at The Wooden Wookiee was a creation of Lunacca's. However, the Wookiee did use a crew led by an individual named Schelhorn for wood shipments.

The booth had the body of an R-series droid in its corner that was used as a furnace, and the shop was located in a corner of the market across from the Creature Stall and next to the outpost's historical obelisk. Its perimeter was formed using desks and tables, and the back of the booth had shelving for tools and products.

While Salju—the local mechanic—and her pet therii, Elee, were wandering the market sometime during their youth, Lunacca called them over to The Wooden Wookiee to hand them a wooden figure of Elee he had crafted for them as a gift. During the First Order's occupation of Black Spire Outpost in 34 ABY, the Ithorian collector Dok-Ondar had a table made of wroshyr wood, which his employee Julen Rakab recognized from The Wooden Wookiee due to its carvings, in his antiquities shop. Around the same time, The Wooden Wookiee was temporarily closed as Lunacca made a supply trip to Kashyyyk for more wroshyr wood.

Prior to leaving, Lunacca had partially carved several pieces, including sculptures of porgs, an Ithorian bust, a Wookiee bust, a loth-cat, the symbol of the Jedi Order, and a large avian creature, along with other creatures. While the Wookiee was absent, these items sat on display in the booth. The store was also featured in the Traveler's Guide to Batuu, written by author and explorer Eloc Throno at the same time of the First Order occupation that same year. The stall was also featured in The Secrets of the Wookiees, a collection of histories and information about Wookiees and their culture compiled by protocol droid C-3PO during or after 35 ABY based on stories he had heard from his Wookiee friend Chewbacca.

Land Port
The Land Port was an industrial area of Black Spire Outpost on the planet Batuu. The Land Port acted as the land-based entryway into the outpost for travelers arriving by foot, on the back of a creature, or in a surface vehicle. It contained Black Spire Station and the Droid Depot, businesses where newly-arrived travelers could have their vehicles or droids serviced, and Savi's Workshop.
The port was more rugged than the rest of the outpost and the roadways were less maintained. It connected Black Spire Outpost Market with the forest that bordered the outpost and contained the Black Spire Ruins, where in 34 ABY the Resistance maintained a base during the war between the First Order and the Resistance.

Black Spire Station
Black Spire Station was a business location in Black Spire Outpost on the planet Batuu that sold various droid parts. People searching for parts at the station could look to Salju for assistance. Several droids, including an R2 unit, an R3 unit, an R4 unit, a G2 droid, and two box droids, were also found near the location alongside at least one speeder bike and two landspeeders. Fuel and repairs for vehicles were available at this location and it was almost always open.

Droid Depot
Droid Depot was a shop found in the Land Port at Black Spire Outpost on Batuu. Owned by Mubo, the shop repaired and sold droids, tools, parts, and manuals. A sign outside of the shop advertised "SALES," "SERVICE," and "TRADES" in stylized Aurebesh. The shop had an attached repair station and oil bath, although it was unknown how long the oil had been in there and customers were advised to use it at their own risk. It was well stocked with C1-series, R-series, and BB-series droids that could be modified to the customer's specifications.

Savi's Workshop
Savi's Workshop, located in the Black Spire Outpost on the Outer Rim planet Batuu, presented itself as the front office for Savi & Son Salvage. Savi and his Gatherers, who admired the Jedi Order and had faith in the the Force, secretly operated a lightsaber workshop within despite the First Order occupation.

Savi's Workshop was located in the Land Port of Black Spire Outpost on the Outer Rim planet Batuu. Officially, the building was the front office of the company Savi & Son Salvage, and sold scrap metal and items salvaged from the junkyard owned by the business. The most notable items were curated by the "Gatherers," a group of beings who admired the Jedi and hoped to bring balance to the Force by teaching people the ways of the Jedi Order.

In 34 ABY, Savi and the Gatherers operated a workshop in a hidden back room where they helped visitors create their own custom lightsabers. They were assembled with parts the Gatherers salvaged from fallen Jedi temples and starships, kyber crystals in containers obtained from the Galactic Empire, and natural items such as rancor teeth; rumors suggested other parts originated with the Sith. Because the First Order occupiers of Batuu were not fond of the group's ideals, the workshop was operated in secret and the Gatherers left the workshop for a time to "seek out scrap metal."

Despite the need for secrecy, author Eloc Throno wrote in his Traveler's Guide to Batuu that he had overheard travelers discussing Savi's Workshop as if it was something more than it appeared to be. He witnessed a visitor tell a Gatherer, "I'm here to gather some parts. Savi sent me." After leaving with the Gatherer for a time, the visitor returned with an item on her belt that Throno suspected was a lightsaber.

Savi & Son Salvage
The Savi & Son Salvage company on Batuu salvaged starships in a junkyard outside of Black Spire Outpost, and sold metal and other items within the outpost at Savi's Workshop. The workshop was also a front for the Gatherers to protect artifacts and history related to the Jedi Order, and to guide visitors in constructing their own lightsabers.

Savi & Son Salvage was a business located on the Outer Rim planet Batuu, centered around Black Spire Outpost and its outskirts. Savi and his employees did sell scrap metal and parts salvaged from wrecked starships in the junkyard on the outskirts of the outpost, but they were also a group of Jedi admirers and believers in the Force who were known as the Gatherers. Most locals referred to them as "scrappers." The Gatherers would sort through finds from the starships for possible items of interest that were presented to Savi for his evaluation. If he determined that they were likely historic artifacts, they were preserved and protected rather than sold. Within the outpost's Land Port, Savi's Workshop ostensibly served as a main office and workshop, but in reality housed a secret area where the Gatherers taught visitors about the Jedi Order.

As of 34 ABY, Savi had operated the business for multiple decades, although the author Eloc Throno wrote in his book Traveler's Guide to Batuu that he had never seen the "son" indicated in its name despite his years of visiting Batuu. The motto of the company was, according to Throno, "We'll take your (s)crap."

In 34 ABY, the Gatherers helped like-minded visitors create their own custom lightsabers within Savi's Workshop. the location's true nature was hidden because the First Order occupiers of Batuu were not fond of the group's ideals.

Trilon Wishing Tree
The Trilon wishing tree, also known as The Batuu Wishing Tree was found in the courtyard of Savi's Workshop at Black Spire Outpost on Batuu. The local inhabitants of the outpost would take strips of scrap fabric, ribbon or string, tie them to a tree and make a wish. When the fabric or string disintegrated the Batuuans believe the Galaxy granted your wish. The people of Black Spire Outpost felt uneasy about letting people from off-world making wishes at the tree but in rare circumstances would give them ribbon to tie to the tree.

Merchant Row
Merchant Row was an avenue on the Outer Rim planet Batuu, located within the boundaries of Black Spire Outpost. Running from Docking Bay 7 to Docking Bay 9, the row included Docking Bay 7 Food and Cargo, Dok-Ondar's Den of Antiquities, Oga's Cantina, the Milk Stand, and First Order Cargo. In 34 ABY, the area was more recently-built than other parts of the outpost.

Docking Bay 7
Docking Bay 7 was a docking bay located along Merchant Row in Black Spire Outpost on the planet Batuu, located in close proximity to Black Spire. It was the primary landing space for food freighters, which delivered a lot of "tasty fare" sold below in the building's food sale area, which was known as Docking Bay 7 Food and Cargo.

Docking Bay 7 Food and Cargo
Docking Bay 7 Food and Cargo was a restaurant operating out of Black Spire Outpost's Docking Bay 7. Food and cargo delivery shuttles landed atop the building to supply the restaurant. Rotating guest chefs, such as Strono "Cookie" Tuggs, worked out of the location while visiting Batuu.

Docking Bay 7 Food and Cargo was located within Docking Bay 7, an old hangar bay and landing platform on Merchant Row in Black Spire Outpost on the Outer Rim planet Batuu. Food and cargo delivery shuttles landed atop the building and lowered supplies to the businesses below. Rather than having a permanent restaurant, guest chefs visiting the planet would set up temporary kitchens to cook and serve out of the location. Local Batuuans worked as serving staff and assistant cooks for the rotating roster of restaurants. Visitors could eat within the hangar or outdoors.

Following the destruction of Takodana Castle in 34 ABY, chef Strono "Cookie" Tuggs docked his modified Sienar-Chall Utilipede Transport there and began operating his traveling diner, Tuggs' Grub, out of the building.

When Tuggs' Grub was docked there in 34 ABY, Tuggs served a variety of dishes, including A Taste of Takodana, Batuuan Beef and Crispy Topato Stir-fry, Braised Shaak Roast, Bright Suns Morning, Bright Suns Youngling Breakfast, Felucian Garden Spread, Fried Endorian Tip-Yip, Ithorian Garden Loaf, Mustafarian Lava Roll, Peka Tuna Poke, Pirjanad Hot Chicken Tip-Yip, Roasted Endorian Tip-Yip Salad, Smoked Kaadu Ribs, and Yobshrimp Noodle Salad.

They also served a selection of beverages, including Batuubucha Tea, Black Spire Hot Chocolate, Coca-Cola, Diet Coke, Moof Juice, Phattro, Sprite, Surly Sarlacc, Takodana Quencher, Tarine tea, and bottled water. For dessert, Batuu-bon and Oi-oi Puff were available.

Docking Bay 9
Docking Bay 9 was a docking bay located in Black Spire Outpost on the planet Batuu, located in close proximity to Merchant Row. By 34 ABY, the First Order had a presence there, using it as a recruiting station. A cargo area housed and sold propaganda items promoting the First Order. A TIE echelon belonging to Kylo Ren was parked in the area.

First Order Cargo
First Order Cargo was a First Order storage hangar located within Docking Bay 9, which was on Merchant Row in Black Spire Outpost on Batuu. Marked by a nearby TIE Echelon, the establishment, operated by the First Order, sold propaganda items to residents and visitors. During the conflict between the First Order and the Resistance, Supreme Leader Kylo Ren landed at Black Spire Outpost, intending to find the Resistance operative Rey. Upon arrival, he strangled one of his officers for incompetence via the Force.

Dok-Ondar's Den of Antiquities
Dok-Ondar's Den of Antiquities was located in Black Spire Outpost on the planet Batuu. Its proprietor was the Ithorian collector Dok-Ondar.

Dok-Ondar was an avid collector of antiques and any other oddities that would interest him, including weapons, armor, animals, plants, droids, and even remains of sentient beings. He amassed his vast collection in his travels and with the aid of his employees, scavengers, mercenaries, bounty hunters, and any others who were willing to take on his quests. His expansive collection of antiquities and valuables made his store resemble a small museum with buyable treasures. He would also loan out his wares and keep track of them via holographic documents.

Outside of the store, Dok-Ondar displayed a bust of Jedi, a statue of a Jedi Consular resembling one formerly located at the Jedi Temple, and a large stone foot. He also had an Ithorian gravestone dedicated to his father and mother.

Milk Stand
The Milk Stand was a small but popular merchant stall located on Merchant Row in Black Spire Outpost on the planet of Batuu. The stall was set up by Bubo Wamba of Bubo Wamba Family Farms after he was sent by his family from the planet Tatooine to run a bantha farm on Batuu. The stall served blue milk sourced from Wamba's farm and green milk imported from Ahch-To. It also served a variety of breakfast menu items.

The Milk Stand was a small and quirky stall with a make-shift look that was located in an underappreciated corner of Merchant Row in Black Spire Outpost on the planet Batuu. It sat opposite the First Order Cargo area just down the street from Oga's Cantina. The stall consisted of a single counter with three points of exchange for staff to work at. Behind the counter, a cooling tank kept the drinks available at their ideal temperatures for ease of serving.

A colorful tarp covered the counter and was held up by two metal posts making up the front of the stall, with a series of blue and green milk vessels hanging beneath the awning above the counter. A series of metal dividers made up a queuing space between the two posts that led customers to the counter, with further milk containers stood on either side of the space. A large milking machine was also located in front of the stall.

The stall specialized in dairy beverages, and served frosted blue milk and green milk, which could be purchased in either a semi-transparent cup in order to show off the distinctive color, or in a Bubo Wamba Family Farms Novelty Drink Vessel. Alcoholic versions of both types of milk called the Blue Milk Cooler and the Green Milk Cooler were also available from the stand, as were the beverage known as a Toydaria Swirl and bottled Dasani water.

In the mornings, the stand served a breakfast menu consisting of Saka farm egg bites, green milk bread pudding, Wamba yogurt cups, and coffee. Cream, wooden stirrers, and various sugars were available for customers to use with the coffee. While Bubo Wamba Family Farms had the monopoly on blue milk in Black Spire Outpost, the Milk Stand also received blue milk from the Saka Homestead, while the green milk sold at the stand was imported from the planet Ahch-To where it was produced by the native thala-sirens.

A few years before the First Order occupation of Batuu in 34 ABY, Bubo Wamba Family Farms expanded from its modest base of operations on the desert planet Tatooine to set up a bantha farm near Black Spire Outpost. Bubo Wamba, a young fourth generation dairy farmer, was sent by his parents to run the farm, and soon after his arrival on Batuu set up the Milk Stand in the market in order to sell the blue milk from the farm, along with imported green milk.

Wamba had to spend much of his time on the farm tending to his banthas, but took every opportunity he could to meet new people and preferred spending time in the busy marketplace to his lonely homestead. He commuted in from the farm each day on his landspeeder, which he left parked at Black Spire Station elsewhere in the outpost. He employed various Batuu natives to help run the stand, who eagerly shared the available beverages with other locals and passing travelers.

During the First Order's occupation of Batuu, a group of First Order stormtroopers later chased the Clawdite criminal Remex Io through Merchant Row, causing him to rush through the Milk Stand in front of the queued customers. The stall's staff and customers dodged back out of the way of the Clawite, with one Zeltron patron calling out angrily after the criminal. The stormtroopers then opened fire at Io, missing their target but hitting the Zeltron in the chest. In 34 ABY, the local farmer Julen Rakab considered investing in the Milk Stand after running out of milk at his home, but quickly rejected the idea due to how bad banthas smelt.

Oga's Cantina
Oga's Cantina was a cantina found near Smuggler's Alley on Merchant Row, located in Black Spire Outpost on the Outer Rim planet Batuu. It was owned by a Blutopian bartender named Oga Garra, and pilot droid RX-24, now under the name "R-3X," worked as a DJ there. The bounty hunter Harkos was known to frequent the cantina. Unlike Chalmun's Spaceport Cantina, droids were allowed on premise despite there being a droid detector. Kendoh Voss once arrived at the cantina to meet up with a fortune teller she knew of, eventually meeting with Hondo Ohnaka of Ohnaka Transport Solutions.

Oga's Cantina was located on the Outer Rim planet of Batuu. It could be found near Smuggler's Alley on Merchant Row in the settlement of Black Spire Outpost. It was run by the Blutopian crime boss Oga Garra and was known for serving pilots, bounty hunters, smugglers, locals, and galactic travelers. These denizens used the establishment to conduct illegal business, meet a friend, confront an enemy, or just unwind. The cantina would eventually gain a reputation as a popular pit stop for those looking to avoid the eyes of the authorities. First Order stormtroopers were even known to occasionally pop in for a visit.

The cantina was a circular domed building that protruded from the side of one of Black Spire's many petrified trees.

The establishment offered alcoholic beverages, including Andoan White, Bad Motivator IPA, Bespin Fizz, Bloody Rancor, Dagobah Slug Slinger, Fuzzy Tauntaun, Imperial Guard, Jedi Mind Trick, Jet juice, Spice Runner Hard Cider, T-16 Skyhopper, The Outer Rim, Toniray, White Wampa Ale, and Yub Nub. There were also a number of non-alcoholic drinks served there, such as Black Spire Brew, Blue Bantha, Carbon Freeze, Cliff Dweller, Hyperdrive (Punch It!), Jabba Juice, and Spiran caf. Moogan Tea was available both with and without alcohol. The cantina served drinks for both children and adults, and people came from all over the galaxy to sample the famous concoctions, which were formed from exotic ingredients using otherworldly methods and served in unique vessels.

The cantina also provided food for its patrons. Batuu Bits, Mustafarian Lava Rolls, Oga's Obsession, Rising Moons Overnight Oats, and Rodian Rations were all served there.

Entertainment was provided in the form of music performed by DJ R-3X.

Smuggler's Alley
Smuggler's Alley was a street on the Outer Rim world of Batuu, located within the boundaries of Black Spire Outpost. Oga's Cantina sat at one end of Smuggler's Alley, while Black Spire Station and Docking Bay 9 were situated further along its length, across the street from the Milk Stand.

Service Yard
The Service Yard was a gritty yard in Black Spire Outpost on the planet Batuu. Located between the Milk Stand on Merchant Row and the Droid Depot within the outpost's Land Port, the Service Yard acted as a back-of-house area for the Droid Depot, supplying an oil bath and a droid repair station. The yard formerly housed public baths, and in 34 ABY, it provided public refreshers with facilities suitable for most humanoid species. One wall was decorated with an Imperial probe droid that local Batuuans captured during the Imperial Era. Visitors could hear the BSO 401.72 radio station within the yard. A tall antenna at its center, attached to various strings of cables and other technology, served as a central communications relay station.

Courtyard Antenna
This Courtyard Antenna was located in Black Spire Outpost on Batuu in the Service Yard between Droid Depot and Docking Bay 9. It served as a central communications relay station.

A spaceport was located near the Bakkar Spire at Black Spire Outpost on the planet Batuu.

During the conflict between the First Order and the Resistance, the spaceport served as a base of operations for Hondo Ohnaka and his Ohnaka Transport Solutions enterprise, which eagerly recruited spacers for various jobs after securing the use of the Millennium Falcon from Chewbacca. As such, the Millennium Falcon generally was stationed there. It presumably also acted as the area where ships arrived and left the outpost.

Docking Bay 5
Docking Bay 5 was a docking bay at the spaceport in Black Spire Outpost on the planet Batuu. During the First Order occupation of the planet, Docking Bay 5 hosted Ohnaka Transport Solutions, where the pirate-turned-legitimate Hondo Ohnaka hired flight crews to pilot the Millennium Falcon on runs to Corellia.

Ohnaka Transport Solutions
Ohnaka Transport Solutions was a shipping operation run by the Weequay pirate Hondo Ohnaka whilst he was on Batuu. The mercenary Bazine Netal, however, suspected that it was just a front for a smuggling operation.

In the queue for Docking Bay 5 at Black Spire Outpost, two Ohnaka Transport Solutions employees named Gar Faven and Malta Lan had conversations over the loudspeakers.

Engine Maintenance Hangar
The Engine Maintenance Hangar was an area in Batuu's spaceport.

Black Spire Ruins
The Black Spire Ruins, called the old post by locals, or simply referred to as the ancient ruins, were located at the edge of Black Spire Outpost on the planet Batuu. Belonging to an ancient settlement and formerly the original outpost, the ruins were at one time the site of a temporary Resistance encampment, which the Resistance picked largely because it had been ideal for their needs. The encampment included a DF.12 Com Turret at an entrance that led directly into the ruins and into caves which included ancient artifacts and worship sites. The Resistance built their control center inside, in some cases cutting through rock to widen the caves.
Several Resistance recruits were once scrambled there alongside BB-8 to their fighters. Prior to a space battle with the First Order, a group of recruits departed from the ruins on a mission in a transport before the vessel's capture and eventual escape from a Star Destroyer.

Resistance Supply
The Resistance Supply was a makeshift resource location that could be found in the Black Spire Ruins at the edge of Black Spire Outpost on Batuu. Within the Resistance's hidden command post, it operated a shop that sold uniforms, badges, hats, pins, fans, canteens, toys and other accessories to help visitors empathize with and take part in their cause against the First Order during the war.

Savi's Path
Savi's Path was the local name for a route to and from Black Spire Outpost on the Outer Rim planet Batuu. Savi, an elder of the outpost, owned the company Savi & Son Salvage and its associated workshop near the middle of the outpost. The dirt path named after him led from Black Spire Outpost Market, past Savi's scrapyard on the outskirts of the outpost, and to the ancient ruins.

In 34 ABY, Resistance spy Vi Moradi came to Batuu to establish an outpost, but was forced to crash-land her starship in the forest after a collision. Salju, a local Batuuan and one of Savi's Gatherers, came to aid Moradi and led her to the outpost along Savi's Path. Moradi used the route for her work shifts at the scrapyard and for visits to the outpost, and it was also traveled by others after she established a Resistance holdout in the ruins. Eloc Throno, author of books such as the Traveler's Guide to Batuu, wrote that he would often wonder about Savi's son while walking Savi's Path.

Savi & Son Salvage junkyard
A junkyard located on the outskirts of Black Spire Outpost was the main location of Savi & Son Salvage, a company owned by Savi on the Outer Rim planet Batuu. The junkyard had stone walls and a formal entrance on the route known to locals as Savi's Path. Savi's business traded in metal, but especially starships which were abandoned or purchased as scrap. The employees rebuilt starships that had promise, collected metal from wrecks that were not worth repairing, and salvaged items within them to sell at Savi's Workshop, which served as the company's office in the outpost. Cranes and droids were utilized for heavy lifting. Certain employees called Gatherers sifted through the finds to present items of interest for Savi's evaluation as possible historic artifacts that were to be preserved rather than sold.
Though Savi & Son Salvage was an operating salvage business, the Gatherers were secretly looking for items related to the Jedi Order and were teachers of Jedi lore. The Gatherers passed on their knowledge and helped visitors build custom lightsabers in a secret room within Savi's Workshop.
