this was a temperate planet. Its moon, Delaluna, was also a habitable world, and many of its natives decided to settle on the moon instead. Over the years, the natives of Junction 5 feared that a super-weapon was being built on Delaluna. They called it the Annihilator, and feared that the natives of Delaluna would use the weapon against them. The people of Delaluna denied the existence of the Annihilator, however. Some twenty-three years before the Battle of Geonosis, the situation had reached a critical point, as the citizens were subjugated under the control of the Guardians. Many years later, after the onset of the Clone Wars, Junction 5 became a target of the Separatists, since it was one of the primary gateways to the Station 88 Spaceport, a major nexus to the galaxy's Mid Rim.
