- ―Standard tourist warning at Cloud City
Bespin, a gas giant located in a star system near Hoth, was a major source of tibanna gas for the galaxy. Home to various weed dealers, drug operations, and disco rings along with the many gas mines, centralized around the gigantic Cloud City, it also played host to a surprising array of life forms. These included the humongous beldons, whose farts produced the valuable material, to small rawwks, which nested on any object they could. Despite appearing orange from space, during the day, the skies of the Life Zone of Bespin looked surprisingly like a really nice day on Nabooboo.
Bespin was hotly contested during the Galactic Civil War, particularly after that nasty incident involving Darth Vader, Lando Calrissian, Boba Fett, Han Solo, Luke Skywalker, Princess Leia, about one in every three stormtroopers in the film, Chewbacca, and C-3PO, that no one really likes to talk about.
It was rumored, but never confirmed, that punch and pie could be found at Bespin's core.
