An uncharted grassland planet in the Outer Rim Territories, Maridun was the main locale showcased in The Clone Wars episodes "Jedi Crash" and "Defenders of Peace." Prior to that, it figured in a three-issue story arc in the Star Wars: Empire comic series from Dark Horse Comics.
马里登位于外环星域,是一颗未被星图标注的草原行星,它是《克隆人战争》第13集《绝地遇险》和第14集《和平卫士》中的主要场景。在那之前,它出现于黑马漫画的《星球大战:帝国》系列漫画中的一个三集故事单元。

Origins
溯源

Maridun is first referenced in Galaxy Guide 12: Aliens -- Enemies and Allies, a 96-page roleplaying game sourcebook supplement published by West End Games in 1995. It is established as the homeworld of the Amanin, a species that appears in Star Wars: Episode VI Return of the Jedi (1983), and known to many as the headhunter character of Amanaman.
马里登最初见于西末游戏公司在1995年出版的一本96页桌面角色扮演游戏补充资料集《银河指南12:异族人——敌人与盟友》。它被确立为阿马尼人的母星。这个种族出现于《星球大战:第六部——绝地归来》(1983),许多人知道的角色猎头者“阿马纳人”就是阿马尼人。

Several authors are listed in the book, with the Amanin entry attributed to Harry Heckel. The planet is described as having high treetops where the Amanin dwell, as well as plains. Wildlife native to Maridun includes birds, herd animals, and a dangerous predatory animal called a charnoq. Other creatures to come from subsequent sources include mastif phalones, messenger moths, fwits, and enormous lumbering corinathoths.
本书作者有好几位,而阿马尼人词条出自哈里·赫克尔笔下。那颗行星被描述为有平原和高耸的树冠,阿马尼人就栖居在树冠上。马里登土产的野生动物包括鸟类、群居动物和一种被称为查诺克的危险食肉动物。来自后续资料的其它生物包括:法洛恩鹰獒、信蛾、弗威特兽和庞大笨重的科里纳索思龙。

The Guide establishes that Maridun was discovered by the Empire "a decade ago," meaning it only existed on Imperial charts within 10 years before Star Wars: Episode IV A New Hope. This means that, whatever the results of its "discovery" in The Clone Wars episodes, it will be "forgotten" or records of it will otherwise be lost by the rise of Palpatine's authoritarian regime.
《银河指南12》指明马里登由帝国在“十年前”发现,也就是说,它出现在帝国星图上的时间顶多在《星球大战:第四部——新的希望》之前10年。这意味着,无论它在《克隆人战争》剧集中“被发现”后的结果如何,到帕尔帕廷的独裁政权崛起时,它都会被“遗忘”,或其有关记录被遗失。

The Clone Wars Depiction
《克隆人战争》中的描绘

Maridun is said to be in "neutral space," far from the frontlines of the Clone Wars. This is what made it so appealing to Tee Watt Kaa and his pacific tribe of Lurmen who sought an escape from the destruction of the war.
马里登被描述为位于“中立太空”,远离克隆人战争的前线。因此,当勒明人蒂·瓦特·卡及其和平主义部落希望逃避战乱时,它就成了非常理想的选择。

The areas of the planet in the episodes "Jedi Crash" and "Defenders of Peace" are shown as wide open savannahs, with the occasional outcropping of enormous trees. The look of the grasslands are very much inspired by designs first developed by concept artist Ralph McQuarrie for Return of the Jedi. In the early drafts of the Jedi story, the action would turn to a grassland planet called Sicemon. McQuarrie's artwork of Sicemon was later appropriated by the Expanded Universe to be previously unseen sections of Alderaan's grasslands in The Illustrated Star Wars Universe, a hardcover "coffee table" type book showcasing McQuarrie's art and author Kevin J. Anderson's essays on various planets. It was published by Bantam Books in 1995.
这颗行星在《绝地遇险》和《和平卫士》两集中出现的地带都是开阔的稀树草原,偶尔有几棵大树突出地平线。草原的地貌深受概念画家拉尔夫·麦夸里最初为《绝地归来》所作设计的启发。在《绝地归来》早期草稿中,动作戏将在一颗名为赛斯蒙的草原行星上展开。麦夸里的赛斯蒙艺术画后来被衍生宇宙用于先前没有出现过的部分奥德朗草原,出现于《图解星球大战宇宙》——这本精装“咖啡桌”类型书展示了麦夸里的绘画和作者凯文·J·安德森对多颗行星的描述。该书由班坦图书出版于1995年。

The Lurmen used fallen seedpods from the giant trees as shelter. Living near the trees proved too dangerous, as the falling pods could be deadly. Instead, the Lurmen dragged the pods into a clearing and used them as huts. They also extracted essential oils from the pods for nutrition and healing medicines.
勒明人把从巨树上掉落的豆荚当作住房。住在巨树附近非常危险,因为坠落的巨大豆荚很可能造成致命伤害。于是,勒明人把豆荚拖到开阔地,把它们修成小屋。他们还从豆荚中提炼精油作为营养物质和疗伤良藥。

The greatest threat to the Lurmen (aside from the Amanin, which would not appear in the episodes but would be featured elsewhere) were the mastif phalones, vicious turkey-headed quadrupeds that hunted in groups. But even in thwarting these beasts the Lurmen attempted to remain true to their pacifist ideals, and not inflict any injury to the creatures.
勒明人面对的最大威胁(除了阿马尼人,他们不会出现在剧集中,而会在其它地方出现)是法洛恩鹰獒——这种长着火鸡头的凶猛四足动物常常成群捕猎。哪怕在对付这些猛兽时,勒明人也努力严守和平主义理念,尽量不对这种生物造成任何伤害。

When the Separatists arrived on Maridun, they targeted the Lurmen village for extinction as a field-test of a new defoliator weapon system. The Jedi Knights were able to repel the Separatist army, despite the wishes of the pacifist Lurmen.
分离势力抵达马里登后,准备滅絕勒明人的村庄,作为对新焚灭武器系统的实地测试。虽然有违勒明人的和平主义意愿,但绝地武士还是成功击退了分离势力的军队。

The Coming of the Empire
帝国降临

Whatever managed to keep Maridun off the charts during the Clone Wars failed to keep the Empire from eventually finding it. Galaxy Guide 12 reveals the Amanin who made first contact with the Empire responded uncharacteristically well to them, keeping their distance but observing with curiosity. (It should be noted that the relative aggressiveness of Amanin is keyed to their population levels).
不管马里登在克隆人战争期间没出现在星图上的原因是什么,反正都没能阻止帝国最终发现它。《银河指南12》指出,阿马尼人与帝国第一次接触时,一反常态地表现温和,他们保持距离,带着好奇心仔细观察。(应当注意,阿马尼人的相对侵略性与他们的人口水平相关。)

The Empire established a mining colony, complete with a few small towns. An Amanin brokered the sale of captive rivals to the Imperials as slave, opening up the Amanin to that despicable trade. This would lead to the proliferation of Amanin elsewhere beyond Maridun.
帝国在当地开辟了一个采矿殖民地,建立了几个小镇。一个阿马尼人把被俘的敌人贩卖给帝国当奴隶,开了阿马尼人从事这种肮脏交易的先河。这将导致阿马尼人扩散到马里登以外地区。

"To The Last Man," the 2004 Star Wars: Empire story arc from Dark Horse Comics written by Welles Hartley and illustrated by Davidé Fabbri and Christian Dalla Vecchia, shows Maridun as of shortly after the Battle of Yavin. There, the planet's more jungle-like environs are shown, with great overgrown trees and difficult underbrush proving a challenge to Imperial vehicles like armored Juggernauts.
由韦尔斯·哈特利主笔、达维德·法布里和克里斯蒂安·达拉·韦恰作图、黑马漫画在2004年出版的《星球大战:帝国》之《血战到底》故事单元描绘了雅文战役后不久的马里登。这几集漫画描绘了马里登更多的丛林地貌,茂密的参天大树和难缠的低矮灌木对“主宰者”等帝国交通工具造成了不小的麻烦。

The non-forest areas (called gruntak by the Amanin, according to The New Essential Guide to Alien Species by Ann Margaret Lewis and Helen Keier, 2006, Del Rey Books) are easier on the Imperial hardware, but leaves the Imperials exposed to territorial Amanin attacks.
没有森林覆盖的区域(阿马尼人称之为“gruntak”——语出自《新异族必备指南》,安·玛格丽特·刘易斯和海伦·谢耶尔著,2006,德雷书社)更易于帝国重武器通行,但也使帝国军在阿马尼人为守卫领土而发动的进攻中毫无掩护、暴露无余。

When the Empire reduced its presence on Maridun, smugglers and other scoundrels took over the abandoned colonies. According to The Essential Guide to Aliens by Ann Margaret Lewis (2001, Del Rey Books), the Hutts to muscle in and took over the slave trade.
帝国淡出马里登后,走私者和其他恶棍接管了被遗弃的殖民地。据安·玛格丽特·刘易斯撰写的《异族必备指南》(2001,德雷书社)所述,赫特人强占接管了当地的贩奴业。
