Elom is home to Eloms and the Elomin. For centuries, the two species lived unknown to one another, with Eloms living deep underground to access the planet's natural springs, and the Elomin living a technologically advanced life on the surface.
Eloms are primitive and peaceful, and evolved on the surface in times long passed. Only later did they adapt to subterranean life, evolving larger claws for digging and acquiring an extreme sensitivity to bright light. They live in communities called cseria, annually meeting to solve problems and to trade goods.
The Elomin became aware of Eloms during an expedition inside the caves of the A'driannamieq Mountains. Due to the rigid perceptions of order and structure in the Elomin world, they found the concept of underground Eloms difficult to grasp. Accordingly, the mountain explorers never reported to their findings to the Elomin Council.
When Elom became part of the Galactic Republic, a lucrative trading deal was struck with the Elomin, with precious lommite ore from the planet's crust being exported from the planet. A cave-in during the mining operation revealed the Elom civilization again to the Elomin, and the Republic began to investigate, finding Eloms to be sentient and giving them land-rights over an area of the planet. The Elomin began a resource-sharing program with their newly discovered co-habitors, although they were hesitant in entering such a deal with a culture they found so strange and alien. The Eloms, for their part, were content to persist in their subterranean existence.
When the Empire assumed control over the planet, the Elomin were forced into slavery and Eloms' land ownership was revoked. Most Eloms sought an existence even deeper underground, but occasionally young Eloms would journey up to free Elomin slaves using "mining accidents", despite the disapproving sentiment among the Elom elders.
Eloms rarely journey off the planet Elom, and those who do show sociopathic streaks in their personalities, possibly because of their separation from their native environment.
Elrood is a primary planet in the Elrood System near the Rimma Trade Route. It has two moons, Sharene and Lodos. The sector itself contains "The Drift" and the nebulous Degan Gas Clouds making navigation somewhat hazardous for inexperienced pilots. During the era of the Galactic Empire, Elrood was controlled by the sinister Moff Villis Andal.
Emerido is one of two inhabited planets in the Stavo System in the Core Worlds. The planet is a major center for hi-tech technological research and development and giant research facilities are scattered across the planet's surface. Like a few other planets in the Star Wars galaxy, Emerido is covered by an ecumenopolis, or planet-spanning city. Though not as built-up as Coruscant, Emerido still boasts a population in the hundreds of billions. The planet was home to a Jedi Enclave during the early years of the Republic. As well, Emerido was the home planet of Supreme Chancellor Kalpana, who served immediately before Finis Valorum.
 Empress Teta
Empress Teta is the primary world of the Empress Teta System. It was renamed in the honor of Empress Teta, who was the ruler of the planet; in 5,000 BBY she unified all the planets in the system. Since the capital city of Cinnagar covers more than half the planet, the planet itself is also often referred to as Cinnagar.
This planet, originally named Koros Major, was one of the first planets to join the Old Republic. Millennia before the events that take place in the films, this planet was the site of the first incursion upon the Old Republic by the Sith Empire in what came to be known as the Great Hyperspace War. Years later, the Krath Aleema and Setal Keto lived on Empress Teta and used it as their base.
Endor, seen in Episode VI, is the gas giant to the forest moon of Endor, featured in Return of the Jedi. Endor is located in the remote Moddell Sector. Endor is believed to make two appearances in Return of the Jedi, seen as a pinkish planet in the background of a scene with the forest moon. The forest moon of Endor is also the homeworld of the little creatures called Ewoks. This is the secret construction site of the 2nd Death Star battle station. The Rebel Alliance were sent to deactivate the main shield generator. It provided the Death Star with a defensive barrier against a large scale attack. Han Solo placed the detonator that destroyed the generator. Leia found the Ewoks and was treated as queen. Luke and Leia found out the truth about their shared parentage on this planet as well. This became the site of Rebel Alliance largest & greatest victory, the Battle of Endor.
 Eol Sha
Eol Sha was a volcanic world located near the dangerous Cauldron Nebula. Despite a rather temperate climate, almost the entire planet was geologically active, with widespread volcanoes and geysers causing numerous earthquakes and avalanches.
Its length of day was 19 standard hours, and its year lasted 326 local days. It was orbited by a moon with an unstable descending orbit that would lead to a crash between planet and moon with the pass of the years, destroying both bodies. However, Eol Sha was probably destroyed much earlier than this when Kyp Durron used the Sun Crusher to cause all the suns in the Cauldron Nebula to go nova.
Eos is a lava planet, and the secret location of a Trade Federation droid factory. It supplied many droids and ships for the invasion of Naboo and other worlds that did not pay their dues to the Trade Federation. Eos was also rich in minerals required for the Trade Federation technology. It was discovered by one of the Trade Federation's human pilots, Vana Sage, who overheard a communication about the illegal invasion of Naboo. The Federation attempted to murder her, but she escaped and stumbled upon the small planet. After she had met up with her counterpart, Reti, as well as Rhys Dallows and Nym, they went to destroy the droid factory there. Once it was destroyed, the heroes went to help liberate Naboo. Eos was never used again after its original factory was destroyed. Eos is featured in the game Star Wars: Starfighter.
Ergo is home to an Imperial fueling facility. Kyle Katarn used it to smuggle himself aboard the Executor, after which he could make his way to the Arc Hammer, a starship which housed the final construction facility for the Dark Troopers.
Eriadu is the homeworld of Grand Moff Tarkin and Supreme Chancellor Finis Valorum. The surface is full of dirty industry and waste zones that pollute the atmosphere. Eriadu manufactures many goods that can be purchased by the player character in the game Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic. It was also the site of a trade summit where all of the non-Neimoidian members of the Trade Federation directorate were assassinated in a hit arranged by Darth Sidious.
Esseles is a Core World residing in Darpa Sector along the Perlemian Trade Route. It is a temperate and mountainous world where the most of the inhabitants dwell within the deep mist-shrouded valleys. The capital city is Calamar, a center for high-tech research and development, specializing in hypernautics and advanced hyperdrive engines. Esseles was the main political power center within Darpa Sector prior to the events of the Clone Wars and the rise of the Empire. Under Imperial control, the world suffered economically and quickly lost most of its sector influence and territories, but the inhabitants, being naturally peaceful, chose not to intervene in the affairs of the Emperor.
Essowyn is a planet in the Saurton system, which is in the Trax Sector, in the Outer Rim. It is 60% covered by water, and also has plains, low hills and craters. Due to its position between two asteroid belts, the planet is used by mining corporations, lead by the massive Messert Mines Corporation. The planet is the homeworld of the Saurton, but is also inhabited by humans, Sullustans, and Verpine.
 Etti IV
Etti IV is a mostly urban covered world within the Corporate Sector Authority (CSA), and home of the Etti people—tall, gaunt humanoids with thin bodies and long limbs. The rest of the planet features smooth, moss-covered plains and shallow, saline oceans. The world profits from being near several hyperspace trade routes that run through the CSA.
 Exodo II
Farries is a planet over run by rancors and is a home to sednadotans which are reptilian monsters.
Fefze is the home planet to the insectoid Fef.
Felucia is a boggy world covered in giant fungus-like organisms, which appeared in Star Wars Episode III: Revenge of the Sith.
Felucia is filled with strange translucent species of plants and animals. When the sun shines, the environment glitters like multicolored glass, with a multitude of colors. This planet was colonized by the Gossam in 40,000 BBY. It served as the headquarters of the Commerce Guild during The Clone Wars. Felucia was also one of three planets along with Mygeeto and Saleucami that was labelled by Supreme Chancellor Palpatine as a Triad of Evil during the final days of the Clone Wars. It can be played on and taken over in Star Wars: Battlefront II.
During the Battle of Felucia, two Jedi Knights, Aayla Secura and Barriss Offee, led the Republic's Star Corps clone troopers under Marshal Commander Bly's command. They were supposed to be looking for Shu Mai, the leader of the Commerce Guild, but when the troops received the message of Order 66 Aayla Secura was blasted from behind by clone troopers, while Barriss Offee, who also joined the battle, was blasted away by an AT-TE Walker. Also, in Star Wars Battlefront 2, you can play as Aayla Secura if you chose the Republic side. It appears twice in

Fest is the primary planet in the Fest System. The planet is ravaged by civil war both among its inhabitants and against Mantooine. The Festians were rebellious to the Empire and knew that it was about to attack Mantooine, but the distrust for each other, coupled with a lack of communications facilities, prevented them from warning the other planet.
Fest is dominated by steep mountain ranges and deep valleys. The planet appears in two Star Wars games. In Star Wars: Dark Forces, in a rocky and cliffy region there is an Imperial research facility concerned with the weapons of the Dark Troopers. In a level of the Nintendo 64 game Star Wars: Rogue Squadron, in a snowy region resembling Hoth, there is a factory plane specializing in the production of AT-ATs and AT-PTs.
Foerost is a Deep Core world on the Koros Trunk Line between Kuar and Kaikielius, appearing in Tales of the Jedi: The Sith War. It was orbited by the Foerost Shipyards, which was one of the Republic largest and oldest shipyards. The shipyards' engineers removed raw materials from the planet and transported them to the shipyards in high orbit.
In 3,996 BBY, during the Great Sith War, a combined Krath/Mandalorian fleet stole 300 Republic warships from the shipyards for use during an assault on Coruscant. In 3,959 BBY, Sith Lords Revan and Malak stole a major Republic fleet from the shipyards, triggering the War of the Star Forge. In 522 BBY, the shipyards were purchased from the Old Republic by the Techno Union.
In 22 BBY, the Techno Union secretly tightened the security of the shipyards, in preparation for the Clone Wars. Later during that conflict, the system was blockaded by the Republic. In 20 BBY, the Techno Union broke through the Republic blockade through the use of a fleet of Bulwark-class Mark 1 Battlecruisers, setting of the epic Sieges of Foerost. This fleet ravaged Sector Zero until stopped by a fleet of Victory-class Star Destroyers.
Fondor is a Mid Rim world famous for its orbital shipyards. Much of its surface is scarred from incessant mining for raw materials to supply the always-hungry shipyards, as well as Fondor's moons. Darth Vader's Executor-class Super Star Destroyer was constructed over Fondor. During the Galactic Civil War, Rogue Squadron used captured TIE Hunter prototypes to attack and destroy an unnamed Super Star Destroyer equipped with a Cloaking Device that was under construction at the Fondor shipyards. Fondor was brought under New Republic control several years after the Battle of Endor, and the relationship was bolstered by Han Solo saving the last of Fondor's rulers' children from rogue Imperials working with a corrupt planetary bureaucracy. The strategically valuable planet became a target during the Yuuzhan Vong invasion; it was saved from Vong invasion when a blast from Centerpoint Station directed by Thrackan Sal-Solo destroyed a portion of the enemy fleet. However Fondor was saved at the cost of the Hapan war fleet, which was caught in the inexpertly aimed weapon's destructive blast. Fondor would continue to supply the Galactic Alliance with starships in the war.
Foundry was a Techno Union world where battle droids were produced. The planet's surface is almost entirely covered in mega factories and laboratories, except for a small polluted sea.
Foundry was an important Confederacy stronghold during the Clone Wars, and was well defended by the droid armies it produced. However, its defenses could not match the might of the Republic army, who captured Foundry after the Battle of Muunilist.
Frego is a wealthy planet once controlled by a crime ring led by the Cobral family. However, after one of the family members testified in front of the Senate, Frego started on the road to a new beginning.
Fresia is a Core World which served as the headquarters for the Incom Corporation since 2000 BBY.Fresia is near the Metellos Trade Route.However,Fresia was one of the least populated planets in the Core,with only 2.3 million people. Fresia is also the location where the X-Wings prototypes were stolen by the Rebel Alliance.
Gala is a beautiful and wealthy world once under the control of a royal family. It is fairly close to Melida/Daan and Phindar. However, twenty years before the Galactic Civil War, the Prince of Gala was surrounded by corruption. With the help of Qui-Gon Jinn and Obi-Wan Kenobi, the truth behind the corruption was discovered, and Gala was set on a course for democracy.
Gall has no sentient species (although a brown wampa is featured in the game Star Wars: Shadows of the Empire), but it is known that the Empire keeps several Elite Troopers guarding the hangars in the Moon.
Gallinore is a beautiful world in the Hapes Consortium that is famous for its rainbow gems, long-living creatures that radiate a beautiful, colorful shine. Rainbow gems are extremely valuable, yet hundreds of them were given to Princess Leia Organa by the Hapans.
Gand is the homeworld of the Gand. Its atmosphere is primarily ammonia, making it lethal to most galactic lifeforms. The Gand do not breathe; they absorb all necessary nourishment through eating, however a rare few have been noted to be born with lungs or vocal cords, creating a sub-species. They are able to speak by storing various gasses in a special gas bladder used just for this purpose (see X-Wing: Wedge's Gamble). They often find work as bounty hunters, due to their tradition of "findsmen".
Garban is a temperate planet in the Tau Sakar system, which is in the Abrion Sector in the Outer Rim. It is the homeworld of the Jenet species. The planet was not a member of the Galactic Republic, but joined the Galactic Empire.
Garqi was a very unusual planet, as it appeared purple from space. This was mainly because the minerals in its soil turned the native plant life purple. Garqi was an agricultural planet that was captured easily by the Yuuzhan Vong. It was here that jedi master Mace Windu found his unique purple crystal to form his lightsaber.
Generis is a desert planet full of towns and cities, sector capital of Atrivis Sector. Five years after the Battle of Endor, Grand Admiral Thrawn captured it from the New Republic, destroying the Republic communications center and most of the sector fleet supply depots.
Genesia, located in Brak Sector, was a haven to many of the sector's crimelords due to the corruptibility of the local government.
Geonosis, seen in Episode II, is the home planet of the Geonosians, and the site of the Battle of Geonosis. Geonosis is ruled by Poggle the Lesser. It was a complex for droid factories as well as a hideout for the Separatist leaders until the Clone War outbreak.
The planet is located less than one parsec from Tatooine. In many ways the planet is similar to Tatooine, as it is a rocky desert world. One notable difference is that the planet has large and dense rings in orbit. Furthermore, the Geonosians dug a complex series of caves underneath the surface, with occasional spires of secretions protruding from the ground in some areas. One such example of this is the Geonosian execution arena. The Geonosian Plains and entrance to the Geonosians north base can be played and taken over in Star Wars: Battlefront II.
Gerona is a planet in the Elrood system. It looks like a blue world with rings around it. Its population is mostly human with Twi'leks, Duros, Sullustans and Koboks also representing it. The terrain of the planet is rainforests, urban areas, deserts, grasslands, and seas. Although it was a republic planet, near the end of the Jedi Civil War, the Sith occupation was strong in many of the settlements. Most believe this is because a number of the cities were owned by the Czerka Corporation, and both factions had good relations with the other, especially involving trade.
Little is known of Gerrard. Its location and appearance is unknown but, however, has at least four moons. One of which, Gerrard V, is inhabitable. One of its moons, Gerrard IV, appears in Star Wars: Rogue Squadron; this moon is covered by deserts and oceans, there are small-medium sized cities on the surface of Gerrard IV
 Glee Anselm
Glee Anselm is a humid world located in the Mid Rim. The planet's surface is covered in one giant ocean with millions of small islands scattered across the globe. The terrain of the islands vary from rolling sand dunes to bogs and marshes. Glee Anselm is the homeworld to the air-breathing amphibious Nautolans, like Jedi Master Kit Fisto. The Nautolans can live below and above water, allowing cities to develop almost any where.
Glee Anselm was an avid member and supporter of the Old Republic, and was disgusted with the bloody reign of the Galactic Empire. The Nautolans tried to support the Rebel Alliance, but were pinned down by neighboring Imperial worlds. Glee Anselm was one of the first planets to join the New Republic, and the Nautolans helped fill Luke Skywalker's Jedi Academy and Jedi Council.
The planet also joined the Galactic Alliance after it replaced the New Republic.
Gorsh is a restricted planet in the Outer Rim. The third planet in the Gorsh System, Gorsh was first discovered by the Geentech Corporation. The Galactic Empire granted them full authorization to the planet.
 Gravlex Med
Gravlex Med in the Raioballo Sector was the homeworld of the Anx. The planet was an idyllic world until it was taken over by the Empire. Hazardous waste stored on the planet soon leaked out and devastated the environment. Eventually the planet was abandoned as a wasteland.
Grizmallt is a Core World which suffered a violent revolution in 4,000 BBY which caused refugees to leave the planet and first settle Naboo. The planet's final Queen before abandonment and settlement on Naboo was Elsinore den Tasia.
 Gromas 16
Gromas 16 was the sixteenth moon of the gas-giant Gromas in the Gromas system of the Mid Rim's Perkell Sector.6,220 kilometers in diameter, the small arid, desert moon, Gromas 16 had weaker than standard gravity, a day length of 14 standard hours and a year of 195 standard days. This was the location of mines where minerals were extracted for the Dark Trooper project. Kyle Katarn destroyed the mines in the Star Wars: Dark Forces campaign.It was nicknamed the "Blood Moon" It had a population of 200,all were human miners.
Had Abbadon is a world with six moons that is inhabited by humans named after the Jewish demon Abaddon. Had Abbadon was the planned capital of the Galactic Empire and was to appear on-screen. However, during production for Star Wars Episode VI: Return of the Jedi, the planet was removed, but its forest moon of Endor remained. The capital of the Galactic Empire became known as Coruscant.
Halm is an arid desert world with only 1% surface water, famous for its extensive mines. These mines contain rare Adegan crystals, which can be used in the construction of some lightsabers. A Gran mining colony on Halm was raided by the Galactic Empire after the Battle of Hoth, but was rescued by Luke Skywalker.
Hapes is the homeworld of the 63 star systems of the Hapes Consortium. It has a matriarchal society, with a Queen Mother ruling. Past Queen Mothers include Ta'a Chume and Teneniel Djo; the current Queen Mother is the Jedi Knight Tenel Ka.
 Haruun Kal
The only habitable world in the Al'har system, Haruun Kal appeared to be an oceanic world from space. However, this "ocean" was in fact a sea of toxic gases brought to the surface by volcanic activity, and broken by mountains and plateaus. Only the landmasses which reached into the atmosphere could support life, and thus it was high in these mountains and plateaus where native life evolved. The native human population seems to have evolved from Jedi that were forced to land on the planet several millennia ago. This planet is the setting for the novel Shatterpoint.
 Hathrox III
Hefi is a world often considered to be a retreat because of the extensive network of caverns and rocky valleys that encompass the planet. In the novel Darksaber, Bevel Lemelisk recalls how he hid from the Emperor on the retreat world after the destruction of the first Death Star.
Helska, also called Helska 4, is the fourth planet in the Helska System. The frozen planet became the base of operations for the Praetorite Vong. Ultimately, it was recaptured by a New Republic task force sent to wipe out the Yuuzhan Vong presence there.
Himora is a massive planet found in the Outer Rim. Himora's predominant climate is temperate, and the vast majority of its hospitable surface is covered in rolling plains, savannahs, sparse foliage, and granite rock faces. Himorans , the planet's only sentient species, share an ancient lineage with Bothans, and are similar in appearance, though considerably taller and more slender. Himora has only recently been rediscovered by the Republic after having been forgotten since the chaotic years following the Great Hyperspace War. Himorans are a primitive people, but possess an abnormally high level of Force-sensitivity as a whole, though the Jedi have not yet had the opportunity to formally train any of the more adept. Nevertheless, the Himora have developed their own uses for those with particularly acute Force-sensitivity, treating these individuals with tremendous respect, admiration, and, in some cases, fear. Their Force training is divided into two categories, not unlike the two existing categories in the common galaxy. Those pursuing training in the use of the Light-side are known as Keoh, and those with more deviant ambitions are known as Cynkh.
Hok is a planet colonized by the Gran.
Honoghr is home to the Noghri. A battle in orbit during the early time of the Clone Wars caused planetwide ecological catastrophe when a starship carrying a toxic gas crashed into the planet and exploded. The Empire convinced the native Noghri to work for them in return for restoring their planet, and deliberately hamstrung the relief effort to keep the Noghri subjugated.
Hoth, seen in Episode V, is the sixth planet of the Hoth system. It is a world covered in snow and ice, with numerous moons, and pelted by meteorites from a nearby asteroid belt. Native creatures include the wampa and the tauntaun.
The Rebel Alliance relocated to Hoth after their victory in the Battle of Yavin. However, an Imperial probe droid discovered the shield generator on Hoth, before being discovered itself. The Rebels began preparations to leave, but Darth Vader's Death Squadron arrived too soon, and the Rebels were forced into combat to cover their escape. The Empire triumphed in the Battle of Hoth.
Humbarine is a world-city, or ecumenopolis. At the time of the Clone Wars, the entire surface of Humbarine was covered with urban sprawl. Similarly to other known world-cities Coruscant and Denon, Humbarine was an influential planet, in fact a founding member of the Galactic Republic. During the Clone Wars, a Confederacy of Independent Systems fleet led by General Grievous conducted a devastating orbital bombardment of Humbarine, depopulating the planet and melting portions of its crust. Based on the possible ranges of ecumenopolitan populations, this act caused the death of anywhere from a trillion to several quadrillion sentients.
Hurcha is an extremely cold planet in the Churba system, located near New Cov.
Hurikane contrary to popular misconception, is not the homeworld of Jedi Master Mace Windu. Stones describes a mission undertaken by Windu as a Padawan to collect crystals from the planet which give his lightsaber its distinctive purple color.
After the Battle of Naboo, the Republic passed strict laws that severely hampered the manufacture and distribution of battle droid armies. Massive corporate entities like the Trade Federation and the Techno Union appeared to comply with the new legislation, shutting down numerous factories within the Republic borders. In truth, they simply moved the bulk of their operations to worlds outside the Republic's jurisdiction, continuing their work in secret.
Geonosis was one of the largest of these covert foundries. The nearby world of Hypori was another. A temperate world rich with minerals, Hypori has no intelligent life. The leaders of the Baktoid Armor Workshop sponsored a colonial effort, transporting an entire Geonosian hive to Hypori. Though the tough bedrock and soil proved difficult to assimilate into a true and proper hive-mound, the Geonosian workers nonetheless turned the planet into a massive foundry, churning out battle droids in preparation for the war to come.
Jedi Master Daakman Barrek discovered the foundry during an intelligence-gathering mission with his padawan Sha'a Gi. The two reported it to Coruscant, who dispatched an elite Jedi taskforce complete with clone trooper infantry to destroy the facility. Disguised orbital mines crippled much of the taskforce before it even made planetfall.
On the surface, the Separatist military commander, General Grievous, led the battle droid army that destroyed what remained of the taskforce. Few Jedi survived the onslaught.
Hypori was abandoned after the Clone Wars ended.
Jabba the Hutt found the planet after the Battle of Yavin. Tyber Zann interceped it and gained control of an old droid factory. He almost destroyed Jabba until Jabba gave him control of two planets, Hypori and Seulcami.
In the Cartoon Network series Star Wars Clone Wars, a group of jedi, including Ki- Adi Mundi, make a last stand against General Grievous on Hypori, in which two Jedi die and the remaining three are battered and beat but make it out alive.
Homeworld of the Trandoshans. Scenery is desert plains light by a bright red sun in the day, but is pitch black at night due to the lack of a moon.
 Ichtor 8
Ichtor 8 is the 8th planet in the Ichtor system of the Elrood Sector, located in the Mid Rim nearly twenty light years from the Galactic Core. Its orbital period is 368 days, with a daily rotation period of 24 hours. Ichtor 8 features six moons and a population of six billion. Its terrain varies, from bamboo forests to grasslands to urban. Some species on the planet include Humans, Twi'leks, Duros, Ithorians and Koboks.
Iego is a planet mentioned by young Anakin when he first met Padmé and asks if she is an "angel". According to him, they [angels] live on the moons of a mysterious planet called Iego. He claimed the deep-space pilots had told him they are the most beautiful creatures in the universe. The planet also appears in the Star Wars: The Clone Wars episode "Mystery of a thousand moons".
Iego is featured in Star Wars: The Role-Playing Game as a desert rogue planet floating in the middle of a nebula cloud known as the Extrictarium. It doesn't orbit a star. Instead, it is provided light and warmth by the energies of the nebula and barely supports life. The planet is lit up on all sides by the glow of the nebula and never experiences nightfall. The radiation that bombards it is so intense that most inhabitants of the planet will go blind within a few days if not wearing visual protection. It is surrounded by dozens of rocky moons that all drift along with it. Iego's location, and its existence, is hotly debated among spacers. Those who go looking for it are said to never return, having been killed travelling through the dangerous nebula, while others who come back have incredible stories to tell.
Iktotchon's moon, Iktotch, is home to the Iktotchi.
Ilum is home of the crystals that give lightsabers their color. 1000 years before the battle of Yavin, some of the caves of Ilum were severely damaged and some crystals were destroyed, most of them yellow. That is why there are very few yellow lightsabers in the actual movies. During the Clone Wars, the Separatists launched a covert strike against Ilum with Chameleon droids. Barriss Offee and Luminara Unduli were in one of the caves containing lightsaber crystals at the time, but they soon realized that there were too many attackers. Seeing this in a vision, Jedi Master Yoda requested Padmé Amidala to go to Ilum, but Captain Typho objected. Typho was "persuaded" to go, and together they saved the crystal caves, with Offee and Unduli safe. It was soon destroyed after the Empire came to order by The Great Jedi Purge, also known as Order 66.
Induomodo is the kouhun homeworld. Its poison jungles and thick swamps were home to vicious creatures and poisonous plants which were used as killing mechanisms by gangsters and other underworld figures.
Iridonia is home to Iridonians (also called Zabrak) such as Bao-Dur, Sith Lord Darth Maul, and Jedi Master Agen Kolar. Though not actually born on Iridonia, Eeth Koth is a direct descendant from Iridonian ancestors. Though known for its extremely harsh desert climate, the planet also has rainforests, urban cities and frozen mountains filled with life.
The planet is located within the lesser plooriod cluster situated in the Mid Rim sector of the galaxy close to the meridian sector border. The planet was renowned for both the variety and pristine nature of its ecology. The Ithorians themselves, nicknamed "Hammerheads" due to their distinctive physiology, developed massive floating cities so that the planet's surface could remain unscathed. After these cities were developed, it became illegal for an Ithorian to set foot on the surface of the planet unless he remained there permanently. Despite the harsh restrictions tied to such an act, many Ithorians heeded the call of "Mother Nature" and moved from the cities to the forests below.
The surface of the planet of Ithor formerly played host to numerous plants including Indyup trees, Donar flowers bull-ferns and Baffor trees. The "Baffor" tree, which possessed telepathic capabilities and acted as a sort of distributed intellect - the larger the forest was, the higher the collective intellect. At one point, scientists attempted to bond the telepathic capabilities of the Baffor tree with another and more vicious trees appeared on the planet surface. The result was a new parasitic life named "
During the invasion of the Yuuzhan Vong, Jedi Knight Corran Horn dueled the leader of the Vong forces, Shedao Shai, with the planet Ithor at stake. Corran won and killed Shedao Shai, but his second-in-command, Deign Lian, answering to Warmaster Tsavong Lah, was ordered to unleash a deadly bacteriological agent on the surface of the planet. The bacteria consumed all organic material on the planet at an incredible rate, leaving behind a black sludge and releasing massive amounts of oxygen and heat into the atmosphere. The planet was then burnt into a cinder when a heavily damaged and burning Yuuzhan Vong cruiser crashed into the planet, setting the entire atmosphere on fire due to the increased oxygen. The disaster was blamed on Horn and he became known as "the man who killed Ithor."
The destruction of Ithor, a well known planet in the Star Wars Universe, marked, along with the death of Chewbacca, that the New Jedi Order series would see many changes occurring to the galaxy.
Ison is a planet that's in a permanent planet-wide storm. It is an ocean planet with big floating cities, similar to Mon Calamari, Kamino, and Manaan. The native Chelin built the floating cities. It is also located near the Ison Trade Corridor, a travel spine that featured the Hoth and Bespin regions on its route.
J't'p'tan is a planet in the Doornik-628 System, in the heart of the Deep Core region of the galaxy. J't'p'tan is pronounced JEH-TEH-PEH-TAHN. J't'p'tan is described in detail in Dan Wallace's Star Wars: The Essential Guide to Planets and Moons.
Jabiim was the site of the Battle of Jabiim which resulted in Confederate Separatist conquest of the planet, during the Clone Wars. After the battle, Anakin Skywalker helped push the Confederacy off the planet. During the Galactic Civil War, the Rebel Alliance discovered the planet and some of their members were taken hostage by the remaining Jabiim Rebels while the Galactic Empire launched a full-blown invasion of the planet.
Japarran is a lush, sparsely populated planet located in the Inner-rim. Much of the world is sub-tropical while the poles have a cooler climate. It is renowned for its exotic vegetation; some of its tropical trees are hundreds of meters tall. Ecologists across the galaxy come to Japarran to study the plant life, unpolluted by limited urban development.
After Ithor was devastated by the Yuuzhan Vong, the Ithorians relocated to Japarran in search of a new home world. They banned construction on the surface, and began construction on a large floating city that would handle all traffic, while not disturbing the pristine ecosystem.
Joralla is a semi-tropical planet in the Joralla system, subjugated and quarantined by the Galactic Empire. It was the source of Jorallan opals and Jorallan pearls. During the early Galactic Civil War era, its population was ten million. Eventually, though, the planet gained a larger population of 1 billion once the new republic gained control of the planet after the Galactic Civil War.
Kalakar VI was a volcanic moon of Dromund Kalakar in the Outer Rim. It was a Dark Side nexus which attracted the Prophets of the Dark Side from nearby Dromund Kaas about 100 BBY, having previously been occupied by the Sith Empire. It was covered in lava flows, its crust riddled with magma tunnels.
Darth Vader came to the moon in an attempt to intercept the Rebels carrying the Death Star I plans. The Rebels were not there: Vader had been lured to the moon with false information by the local Prophets, whom pitted Vader against a clone of Darth Maul. Vader killed the pseudo Maul. Palpatine himself arrived on the moon in a Lambda-class shuttle, killing the Prophets and retrieving Vader. Vader suspected the entire ordeal had been a test arranged by the Emperor. This planet appears in "Resurrections", in Star Wars Tales 9. While initially non-canonical, it has since been upgraded to C-canon.
The planet Kalarba Almamsra was the name of the black hole generated by Darth Vader and Yoda in the Kalarba Black Sector. The droids R2-D2 and C-3PO had a number of adventures on Kalarba while in the ownership of a local baron.
Kalee was the home planet to the Kaleesh, including cyborg General Grievous, a warlord who hailed from this planet. Kalee was covered in tropical looking foliage and beaches. Moss-covered canyons and cliffs filled the landscapes. It was apparently an intensely harsh world, and lacking in many natural resources. The Kaleesh housing and buildings were very temple-like and primitive. The Kaleesh were hunter-warriors, hunting deadly predators such as Mumuu and Karabbac beasts to make ceremonial cloaks and war masks. The warlords ruled over the Kaleesh people and the planet was terrorized for decades to come.
Prior to The Clone Wars, the Galactic Republic sided with the Huks against the Kaleesh in the Huk Wars, defeating the Kaleesh. During the Wars, the Kaleesh were winning under the leadership of General Grievous. The Republic destroyed trade, blockading his world. Then the Banking Clan came, paying the planet's enormous debt, and feeding the starving. The war now over, the Clan asked only one thing: Grievous's alliance. Although debt collection was a far cry from war, Grievous was satisfied... until he was incapacitated in a shuttle crash arranged by the InterGalactic Banking Clan. Banking Clan leader San Hill paid for a cybernetic suit to be built by the Geonosians for Grievous, who became leader of the Separatist military forces. In return for Grievous's services, the InterGalactic Banking Clan financed the economic recovery of the presumably ruined Kalee and helped the planet out of depression after the Huk War.
 Kalist VI
It is a bleak, mountainous, desert planet with an Imperial base. Approximately 8 months after the Battle of Yavin the Empire took Jabiimi prisoners, as well as Jorin Sol, to the base where the Jabiimi were used for slave labour and Sol was tortured for information regarding the location of the Rebel Fleet. A Rebel team including Luke Skywalker successfully infiltrated the base posing as the crew of the Imperial tanker Nuna's Twins, with the intention of retrieving Sol. Luring most of the base's troops off-planet and into a trap, the Rebels rescued Sol and the prisoners, causing heavy damage to the base. After the attack the base was repaired and reinforced suspicious rain forest.
Kamino (pronounced kuh-MEE-no) is completely covered in oceans after an enormous flood that wiped across its surface, and it is always covered with clouds and rain. It is inhabited by a race of tall, elegant creatures, called Kaminoans, an isolationist species known for their cloning technology. The Kaminoan capital is Tipoca City.
Obi-Wan Kenobi was directed here in Star Wars Episode II: Attack of the Clones to follow a lead on the whereabouts of Senator Amidala's would-be assassin through a single poison dart. During Obi-Wan's stay on Kamino, he discovered that the Kaminoans had created an army of 200,000 clones from a single bounty hunter for the purpose of giving it to the Republic as a standing army. The Kaminoan leader also told him that they are currently breeding another 1,000,000 soldiers and that the army had been requested by a now-deceased Jedi Master.
Kaminoans are known for their illusive technology, expertise in cloning, and their dealings with only the super-rich.
Kashyyyk (pronounced ka-SHEEK) is the lush, tree-filled home planet of the Wookiees. This planet resembles Earth to some extent, although not as closely as Alderaan, Bastion, or Naboo. Although there are plains and lakes on its surface, most of it is covered by miles-high wroshyr trees, hiding beneath their branches the dark, swampy Shadowlands. The Wookiees live in the trees and most never venture to the forest floor. Many high mountains lead up into the clouds. The Wookiees have a long history of warfare with the reptilian Trandoshans from nearby Trandosha. Kashyyyk has the Gryyyl asteroid belt around it. They also fought a large ground battle against the Separatists during the waning days of the Clone Wars. There are also two urban cities on Kashyyyk.
Kashyyyk is home to a number of facilities valuable to the Republic, especially oil refineries, over which these battles were fought. Kashyyyk is also home to the Wookiee Chewbacca.
In Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic, it is shown that the forest floor is the most dangerous place on the planet. The player even finds a Terentatek, a beast thought to be bred for killing Jedi.
Kassa is the innermost planet of the Adega system. Its terrain is composed of searing rock.
Katarr's primary sentient inhabitants are Miraluka, a Force-sensitive race. The planet was sapped of all life by the Sith Lord Darth Nihilus. The only known survivor of this tragedy was Visas Marr, who was taken into bound service by Darth Nihilus. The reason Nihilus drained the Miraluka was for a group of Jedi who were gathering on planet to try to see the threat that was stalking them, their gathering only caused him to come and sap the planet.
Kavan is a planet in the same star system as Hapes and the location where Jacen Solo killed his aunt, Mara Jade Skywalker, as shown in Sacrifice by Karen Traviss, the fifth book of the Legacy of the Force series.
Kejim is the location of an abandoned Imperial base, where some intriguing messages concerning the Valley of the Jedi and "Reborn Jedi" emanate, thus starting the plot of Star Wars Jedi Knight II: Jedi Outcast. The part of the planet seen in the game is a desolate, barren place, but is capable of supporting life.
 Keres II
Keres II Is the ninth planet in the Empress Teta System and is moonless and frozen. This planet is sparsely populated and is probably only colonised at all because of the ancient importance of valuable spices to the Empress Teta System itself.
Kessel is a prison planet and home to one of the galaxy's largest spice mining operations which was mentioned in Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hope by C-3PO. It is the only source of the glitterstim spice, an extremely rare and valuable drug used therapeutically and euphorically. Located in the Outer Rim, Kessel was administered by Moruth Doole who ran a prison work camp to harvest glitterstim. Later, Lando Calrissian obtained control of Kessel and replaced the prison workers with droids. Tyber Zann spent a short time here after Jabba the Hutt turned him in to the Empire. He organized a prison riot so he could escape.
Kessel's name comes from a slight alteration of the German town name Kassel. Which is also the German word for "guarded area", enclosure, or more literally a "Castle", reference to its guarded nature and prison facilities. Kessel is located in the Kessel sector, near Hutt Space. Nearby is The Maw, a cluster of black holes. The planet has a barren landscape of rock and a thin atmosphere. The little air it does have is generated at factories on the surface which slowly bleeds away into space leaving a trail behind the planet. It had a moon called Garrison Moon, which was destroyed by the prototype Death Star.
In Rogue Squadron for the Nintendo 64, a level takes place on Kessel in which the player is to rescue Wedge (who ostensibly worked in the mines) from a prison train. Since the player is bound to an X-Wing (or other period spacecraft of the player's choice) the rescues involves disabling the engine located at the front of the train using an ion cannon. The surface of the planet consists of light rolling hills, covered in what appears to be rust, giving it an appearance similar to that of Mars.
The gravity distortions of the nearby Maw warp space makes it tremendously difficult to navigate a starship through it without a highly skilled pilot. Ships approaching Kessel take long winding courses through the Maw to avoid the danger of being sucked into a gravity well. On a mission where he was pressed for time, Han Solo was able to navigate the shortest course through the Maw in "less than twelve parsecs." With the boosted speed of the Millennium Falcon, Solo managed to haul a load of spice for the Hutts in record time and earned a reputation as a top-rate smuggler. In Star Wars: Jedi Search, book one of the Jedi Academy trilogy, Han Solo crash lands on the planet and has to work in the spice mines.
Various novels (including Jedi Academy) indicate that Kessel is on course to fall into the Maw in about 1000ABY.
Khomm is a planet in the core worlds which is a clone world. All of Khomm's people are genderless and are incapable of sexual reproduction. This is due to their race reaching a satisfactory stage in their evolution, at which point they switched to a cloning-based society and covered their planet's surface with cloning facilities. Consequently it was rare for any of the people to be Force sensitive, because Khomm's first people were not; though this did not prevent a random mutation that allowed Dorsk 81 and Dorsk 82 to be Force sensitive. Khomm would be one of the first planets attacked by Admiral Daala's Victory-class Star Destroyer swarms, after she consolidated power in the Core worlds.
Kiffex is the home planet of the Tonnika Sisters (moderately well known con artists who got in trouble with an Imperial Moff).
Kiffex is the twin planet of Kiffu.
Kiffu is the home planet of the Kiffar and Jedi Knight Quinlan Vos. Kiffu is the twin planet of Kiffex and home to the vampire-like Anzati. From Kiffu, the planets of Cinnagar and Korriban are visible, but not the planet of Koros Minor because of the seven moons blocking it. Five of the seven moons are visible at a time.
 Kile II
Kile II is a small rocky canyon planet that held military bases for the Imperial Navy in that sector. The deep infinite trenches also held an Imperial sensor array and spaceport until Rogue Squadron ambushed and destroyed all military facilities.
 King's Galquek
Kinyen is home to the Gran race. It is a lush green world, perfect for its herbivorous inhabitants to live upon.
 Kirdo III
|This section requires expansion.|
Kiva is a barren and desolate rocky planet. It was once inhabited by a humanoid species, but the planet's surface was destroyed when Imperial scientist Borborygmus Gog conducted a top-secret experiment over his better judgement. The explosion that ensued killed all of the planet's life. Gog and his partner, Mammon Hoole, barely escaped the destruction. The Empire blamed Hoole for the destruction and he, out of shame, abandoned his first name.
Even though the planet was now barren and uninhabitable, Gog maintained a laboratory on Kiva, where he finished "Project Starscream". Project Starscream was a project like the Dark Troopers, in which the goal was to create for the Imperial military a seemingly indestructible creature. The original prototype creature was destroyed by Gog (aided by two orphans, Tash and Zak) when it eventually turned on him.
Kiva was also inhabited by a race of shadow people, formed by Gog's explosion, who sought vengeance for their genocide. They accused Mammon Hoole of the destruction, but discovered the real criminal was Gog, whom they destroyed with a burst of hate. After their revenge was finished, they disappeared, since they were beings of hate, obsessed with justice. After this incident Kiva was left barren, desolate, and completely uninhabited.
Klatooine (pronounced KLAT-too-een) is the homeworld of the Klatooinians, a highly religious humanoid species who are completely bound by a sacred treaty to the will of the Hutts. Very little is known about this world other than it has delicious paddy frogs and almost certainly is located in Hutt Space.
Kooriva is the homeworld of an indigenous species. It is also the planet where the Corporate Alliance was created.
 Koros Major
Koros Major is the former name of the planet Empress Teta.
 Koros Minor
Koros Minor is a planet in the Empress Teta System, which was formerly known as the Koros System.
Korriban, also known as the Sith planet during the Sith and Jedi Civil Wars. Korriban is the sole planet in the Horuset System. It was used as a graveyard for Ancient Sith and was later reborn as a home and training ground for modern Sith. It was once a slave world of the Infinite Empire many millennia before the first Sith Lords came. Sith Lord Naga Sadow built his tomb millennia later around the Star Map, a relic of the time when the Rakata had used the Star Forge. Carved into the sheer rock walls of these canyons are immense tombs containing the desiccated, mummified remains of the various Dark Lords of the Sith like Marka Ragnos, Naga Sadow, Ludo Kresh, and Ajunta Pall as well as other powerful Dark Masters from various millennia.
Korriban was originally inhabited by the Sith race. The Dark Jedi amazed the Sith with their training in the Force, and soon elevated themselves to a god-like status, becoming the rulers, or "Lords," of the Sith. As the years passed, interbreeding occurred between the human Dark Jedi and the Sith, until at last the two people had become one. Korriban now survives as a graveyard for all the Sith who died during the wars, many artifacts are rumoured to be in the Sith Academy.
A temperate planet that is famous for its state of the art ships and dedication to the Empire. The Imperials have a garrison outside of the capitol, Kyleck. It is a large planet with two moons, Tritus and Kethor. They produce the ships on Kethor to keep the planet clean.
Kothlis is a terrestrial planet located in the Kothlis system. It is a Bothan colony, only notable in Star Wars: Shadows of the Empire for being the rendezvous point where the plans for the second Death Star were taken after being recovered by a group of Rebel Alliance Commandos and heroes, including Dash Rendar and Luke Skywalker. It also gets a level in the video game Rogue Squadron II: Rogue Leader, titled "Vengeance on Kothlis". In this level, Rogue Squadron reclaims a blockade runner captured by a Star Destroyer. A very similar mission is also portrayed in the game X-wing Alliance. The planet's surface shows surface water and tropical shores.
Kothlis was also the homeworld of New Republic Senator and later Chief of State Borsk Fey'lya. Kothlis is considered second tier to the main Bothan homeworld, Bothawui, making the inhabitants more motivated and achieving than their better off counterparts.
Kuat is the home of Kuat Drive Yards, a production company that made most of the capital ships for the Old Republic and Galactic Empire during the Galactic Civil War. Kuat is located in the Kuat sector, in the Kuat system, near the Deep Core.
During Imperial control, Kuat could only be accessed via three ports within the main Kuat Traffic Zone, which was along the Hydian Way: a passenger port, a freight port, and an Imperial transfer port. After the second Death Star was destroyed, Tyber Zann attacked with the help of the Rebel Alliance to obtain the new super ship the
Accessible to the passenger port were the systems of Redrish, Drurish, Ulion, and Kidir.
Accessible to the freight port were the systems of Monadin, Renegg, Venir, and Horthav.
Kuat is a temperate world, much like Earth, with fields, plains, rivers and oceans, but is orbited by a huge artificial ring which acts as the shipyard for Kuat Drive Yards, Kuat Systems Engineering, and Kuat Hypernautics. The humans that inhabit Kuat - Kuati - are of a clannish nature, and they stick close to their family groups.
Kuat is also a playable planet in the game Star Wars: Empire at War.
Langoria was once home to a thriving alien civilization thought to date back to the glory days of the Jedi, though there is no evidence that this civilization had any contact with Coruscant or the worlds of the Old Republic. What became of this alien civilization is unknown, but all that remains of it are magnificent ruins scattered across the globe, mostly reclaimed by the encroaching wilderness. This alien civilization made use of a strange technology beyond the comprehension of modern science, and though it seems that they did not venture beyond their own planet to explore elsewhere in the galaxy, they were able to accomplish marvelous feats of engineering—carving mountains into the likeness of their leaders or gods, and even somehow altering weather patterns to their liking. It is hypothesized that they abused these abilities, altering their homeworld to such a degree that it was no longer habitable for them.
Lannik is a planet in the Mid Rim immediately outside Hutt Space.
 Leria Kerlsil
Lehon is a world that was home to the extinct, force-sensitive Rakata tribe. It was also home of the infamous Starforge. It is also where Darth Bane found the last known Sith holocron. It was also known as Rakata Prime.
The planet Leritor was the name of the bleak mountainous planet were Darth Najus hid the Bracers of Najus. Profex Rynalla later found the bracers, then lost them in a struggle.
Lok is a desert planet similar to Tatooine and Geonosis. It is not far from Naboo. It appears in the video games Star Wars: Starfighter, and Star Wars: Jedi Starfighter. It also appears in the MMORPG "Star Wars Galaxies". There is only one settlement during the time of the Empire.
One of the first planets in the Karthakk system to be colonized, the harsh world of Lok was originally home to outlaws, who saw the world as a potential staging ground for raids into the Mid-Rim. Over time, Lok became known as a "pirate world," where anarchy and violence were the only constants.
Lok has fairly varied terrain, ranging from the dangerous sulfur pools to bubbling lava pits. The landscapes are generally foreboding: jagged mountain ranges, long expanses of baked desert, and desolate flats are typical environments on Lok. The presence of pirates and others is evident in the shipwrecks, burned-out bases, abandoned settlements, and destroyed vehicles that litter the planet.
Before the Battle of Naboo, one of the most prominent leaders on Lok was a Feeorin pirate named Nym. The hardy alien - who has only become more formidable with age - spent many years battling the Trade Federation. He is now a local crime lord, but it is also rumored that he is very sympathetic to the Rebellion.
Lok (โลก) is also the Thai word for world.
its 400 year history of slavery by a neighboring planet, the highly-developed body language of its inhabitants, and its universities.
Lwhekk is a hot, jungle-covered planet, the home world of the Ssi-Ruuk and P'w'eck races, and was the center of the Ssi-Ruuvi Imperium. The jungles of Lwhekk were broken by spired cities which appeared to be quite fragile against the jungle. The average day on Lwhekk lasted 32 standard hours, and its years encompassed 344 local days
