Everything You Need To Know About Plant D’Qar


The planet D'Qar is where the Resistance is located in the The Force Awakens.

The base was first strongly hinted at in the Star Wars novel, Lost Stars:

“We should list this planet as a potential base in the future. The Empire’s not interested, not much space lane traffic in this area, plus there’s plenty of water.

This time round, the Resistance is lead at D'Qar by Princess Commander Leia. If you think of it as the equivalent of the Rebel base on Hoth or or main miltary base on Yavin, you'll get the drift.

Here's the official description:

A lush world in the Outer Rim, D’Qar is the principal base of General Leia Organa’s Resistance. Rebel pilots first surveyed the planet before the Battle of Endor, and D’Qar housed a small Alliance outpost that went largely unused in the New Republic’s war with the Empire. The planet’s obscurity and lack of native intelligent life made it a perfect choice when General Organa’s new group needed a hidden base of operations.
