Alderaan

In effect, this is where the Rebellion truly began. Or rather, the end of Alderaan, marked the beginning of the Rebellion.

Alderaan. The home planet to the legendary Bail Organa.... and of course, Princess Leia Organa; Bail Organa's adopted daughter. Alderaan was a peace loving planet; with no weapons or self defense of any kind. It was, in effect, the intellectual centre of the Rebellion; though unassuming in its role. It was an unfortunate setback and loss to the Rebel Alliance when Grand Moff Tarkin chose Alderaan to be the proverbial 'guinea pig' to demonstrate the full capacity of the Battle Station Death Star... but it was also an impetus to the Rebel cause. One that proved quite fatal to the Empire in the long run...
