The Tren were created by authors C. Robert Carey and Trevor J. Wilson for the article " Cracken's Rebel Operatives ," published in the Star Wars Adventure Journal 11 in November 1996 . The Tren character they introduced, Opit-Wenbruh, was illustrated by Kathy Burdette . Years later, in 2011 , an update to Star Wars: The Essential Atlas Online Companion included an entry for the Opitha Tren system . Comments made by Jason Fry , one of the authors of The Essential Atlas , indicate that several new star systems have been introduced as part of the Atlas project to represent the homes of species, based on context implied by their names. Opitha Tren thus may be intended to represent the home star system of the Tren species.
