Today is the end of the Republic! The end of a regime that acquiesces to disorder! At this very moment in a system far from here, the New Republic lies to the galaxy while secretly supporting the treachery of the loathsome Resistance! This fierce machine which you have built, upon which we stand will bring an end to the Senate, to their cherished fleet! All remaining systems will bow to the First Order! And will remember this... as the last day of the Republic!
~ General Hux, just before Starkiller Base was fired


Starkiller Base was an ice planet that was located in the Starkiller Base system of the Unknown Regions that served as the headquarters of the First Order three decades after the Battle of Endor. The base was commanded by General Hux and was armed with a superweapon capable of destroying entire star systems, which the First Order viewed as an evolution of the planet-destroying capabilities of the Galactic Empire's Death Star designs.
