Much like New Yavin, Mos Eisley exists mostly as a way for the Republic to keep an official presence in the Inner Solar System; in this case, on Mars. However, the town does provide a good stop-off point for scientists working in the southern hemisphere, terraformers and other Martian nomads.
The Space Patrol keeps the town's "wretched hive of scum and villainy" vibe to a minimum. They're so successful at this that the city council needs to hire actors to be "villainous" in front of the tourists.
"General Murleen" is the Chief Administrator of Mos Eisley.
The Kuat Drive Yards, owned by the Galactic Republic and located in Mos Eisley's Anchorhead industrial neighborhood, is the largest spaceship-drive manufacturing plant on Mars and the town's major employer. They can build an engine for anything from an subcompact-car-class personal shuttle to a Stingray-class space submarine, and also have the facilities to build complete X-Wing-class and Y-Wing-class fighters. They were one of the largest suppliers of ships' drives to Great Justice during the Boskone War.
Warsie Fighter Squadrons Based in Mos Eisley
- Rogue Squadron
- The Galactic Republic's main Martian defence force.
- Rouge Squadron
- The result of a typo in official correspondence, which some Bubblegum Crisis fans in the faction insisted on making it a real squadron. While they're primarily an aerobatics team, they are trained for combat.
