Adventure Idea

By chance, around 2 years after the Battle of Yavin, a group of pirates fleeing a botched raid were dumped into the system by a hyperspace miscalculation. They limped in to land on the planet, and discovered the remains of the factory whilst searching for food and water. Having recovered a computer core, the pirates were able to repair enough machinery to start one of the production lines, albeit at massively reduced capacity. Within a month they had constructed sufficient new droids from raw material stockpiles to return to their former raiding grounds.

Capsule: Yohib III was briefly colonised by a Trade Federation expeditionary force in the closing years of the Clone Wars. Its main attraction was its remoteness, but its value was raised by its proximity to Yohib II, a planet rich in the mineral ores the Federation required for Battle Droid construction. Consequently, a Droid construction facility was built on Yohib III, whilst mining operations were initiated on Yohib II (its unstable tectonic structure was considered too dangerous to build a permanent base, so an orbital platform was used to house robot mining vehicles which were despatched to the surface).

Shortly before the completion and final commissioning of the droid construction facility, the Yohib III factory was discovered by forces loyal to the Republic and devastated by a sub orbital bombardment. Much of the factory was destroyed, and with the wars end in sight, the Trade Federation could not spare the resources for reconstruction. Yohib II's orbital platform was also slagged in the attack. The Yohib system was abandoned and forgotten.
