When the Empire came to power, they seized Annaj without a single turbolaser blast. Within a few days, Annaj quickly became one of the most popular rendezvous points in the Imperial Navy. While Annaj was granted special gifts from the Empire, system-wide commerce completely collapsed. Eventually, the Imperial Navy withdrew after the Rebel Alliance found out and Annaj was abandoned as another colony with no influence whatsoever.
Some still come to Annaj to survey the supernatural phenomenon of the gas giant. Since the two suns of the Annaj system give off different hued lights, Annaj looks absolutely beautiful from the observation deck of any ship. On the side of the sun, it is deep red. Then, in the middle, it turns to orange, and at the other edge it turns purple. This extrodinary phenomenon has attracted a few to reside on the planet, though their future is unclear.
With the short Imperial presence in the system damaging the economy and destroying their four orbital stations, Annaj looks hopeless. Yet streaks of light can still be found as the twin suns of Annaj shine upon the gas giant so many call home.
