Thule (Star Wars planet)

Thule is a fictional planet from the Expanded Star Wars universe. It was a hidden Sith stronghold. It is the planet where the Dark Reaper is buried. Ulic Qel Droma fought on Thule during The Great Sith War. Count Dooku went to Thule to revive the Dark Reaper during the Clone Wars. The Battle of Thule turns the tide of the Clone Wars, and the fate of the Galactic Republic rested on the battle. It is the last battle featured in the video game Star Wars: The Clone Wars. During the Clone Wars, a planetary shield enveloped planet Thule but was projected by a small moon orbiting it. The Battle of Thule was divided into four phases. At phase one, Anakin Skywalker and his strike force took out the planetary shield on the Thule Moon. At phase two, Obi-Wan Kenobi used the Low Attitude Assault Infantry Gunship to perform an aerial attack on significant strategic locations across planet Thule and destroyed the Communications Installation in order to cripple the Separatists' communications. At phase three, Mace Windu commanded the ground forces around Thule's capital city Kessia. Upon his arrival to Kessia, Cydon Prax destroyed Mace Windu's TX-150 Saber-class fighter tank. Mace Windu had to travel on foot to open the gates to the Sith Temple. At the final phase, Anakin Skywalker and his strike force went through the Sith Temple, defeated Cydon Prax and then re-defeated the Dark Reaper.
