the Stenness System was actually a collection of seven mining worlds in three primary star systems, encompassing about 25 humanoid races. Due to the demand for the ores mined on the various planets, it was given its own hyperspace jump gate very early on. According to Dark Empire, the systems were discovered about 4,000 years before the Battle of Yavin. However, Tales of the Jedi indicates that it as an already-established system, with its own hyperspace jump gate. The mines gave out long ago, but the wealth they provided was still generating interest and good lifestyles for the planets' inhabitants. The system's inhabitants, often refered to as 'Nessies, were highly addicted to spice.
Luke Skywalker, Lando Calrissian, and Chewbacca sought the bounty hunter Bossk on this planet, sometime after the Battle of Hoth. The planet had once been the site of an Alliance base, during the early days of the Galactic Civil War, but it was eventually overrun by Imperial forces. The Imperial occupation earned the hatred of the Stenax race, which launched the Stenax Massacres some ten months after the Battle of Endor to try and strike back at their oppressors. However, the civilian casualties were exceptionally high, and the New Republic military was forced to put an end to the Stenaxes' invasions. Ultimately, monitoring posts were erected in orbit around Stenos to keep track of the activities of the Stenax.
this Chiss, whose full name was Kres'ten'tarthi, served as Voss Parck's righthand man at the Hand of Thrawn compound on Nirauan during the Galactic Civil War. He was also the leader of Thrawn's personal household phalanx, and was one of the few Chiss who felt that Thrawn was a born leader who was working in his race's best interests, and shouldn't have been exiled. He heeded Thrawn's message, to wait ten years after the report of his death before he would return to lead them to power once again. Stent bided his time, until Mara Jade and Luke Skywalker arrived on the planet to investigate the Hand of Thrawn. After the facility was nearly destroyed, Stent continued to serve the Nuruodo phalanx, and was on duty when the Skywalkers returned to Nirauan three years later, at the request of Voss Parck.

It contained a unique biorecognition package that could identify the biomagnetic signature of virtually any race or species. Data was provided to the Stiletto droid from interrogation sessions, and had to be hardcoded into the droid's computer memory ROM. The Stiletto series was equipped with a small repulsorlift propulsion system, and was armed with a pair of blaster cannons. These systems allowed the Stiletto to use its tracking routines to hunt down an escaped prisoner or specific target. The tracking and targetting routines of the Stiletto were quite accurate, and escapees had to rely on luck to get away. Because of their age, many Stilettoes were still in use during the New Republic's early years.
