The third planet in its system, M2398 is a gas giant that is ringed with dust and several moons. Its third moon is the site of a base. It was one of the planets that was visited by the Night Caller before it was captured by Wraith Squadron near Xobome 6.
M4-78 is the name given to a planet colonized by droids. In Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic II: The Sith Lords, it was mentioned that the planet was settled by droids as part of a planetary restoration project, but were sabotaged by the Sith. In removed content from the game, the player, the Jedi Exile, was supposed to reactivate the droids and find Jedi Master List of Ancient Jedi Lonna Vash. Lonna Vash was a member of the Jedi Council. The droid R2-D2 has also stored critical information at this planet. The planet was also mentioned in several Star Wars comic books.
 Malachor V
Malachor V is a planet featured in the game Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic II: The Sith Lords and mentioned in Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic. It is the planet where the conflict of the Mandalorian War concluded. During the conclusion of the Mandalorian War the Jedi Exile ordered Bao-dur and his droid companion to activate the Mass Shadow Generator which even the MSG's inventor Bao-dur would later reveal that he didn't know what it was capable of. The destruction of the Republic fleet would have eliminated the possible threat of an insurrection against Revan since he knew of the less-than-loyal soldiers in the army. The result was the conclusion of life on the planet except for the Storm Beasts as featured in KotOR II. The planet also spews toxic gasses from the ground. Malachor V is also home to the Trayus Academy, where Darth Traya, Darth Sion, and Darth Nihilus formed a fragile alliance. Darth Sion and Darth Nihilus resented Darth Traya's leadership and eventually betrayed and exiled her. Malachor V, due to the exceptional loss of force-connected life has phenomenal dark side residue keeping it together. Depending on the path the exile takes in KotOR II Malachor V either is destroyed again by Bao-Dur's droid or the exile will become the ultimate Sith ruler of the galaxy.
Malastare is referred to several times in The Phantom Menace and Attack of the Clones, however, it was never seen on screen. According to the Expanded Universe, Malastare is the homeworld of the quadruped Dug race. The Dugs were oppressed by the three-eyed Gran who first landed on and colonized Malastare in 8,000 BBY. In 7,000 BBY, the two species signed a peace treaty that united the planet. Malastare was also a supporter of the Trade Federation, as their loyalties to sending a commission to Naboo in The Phantom Menace show. There is podracing on Malastare, a pastime referred to by Qui-Gon Jinn in The Phantom Menace as "very fast, and very dangerous". The planet shows up in the PlayStation 2 and GameCube videogame Star Wars: Bounty Hunter and Nintendo 64 and PC videogame Star Wars: Episode I Racer. In Racer, Malastare's podracing tracks include Malastare 100, Sebulba's Legacy and Dug Derby. Malastare is a swampy, dense forest world.
Sebulba, a native Dug and podracer is from Malastare.
Manaan is an ocean-covered planet that first appears in Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic. It is home to the amphibious bipedal species known as the Selkath. While the vast majority of Selkath cities are located underwater and out of reach to outsiders, the Selkath built Ahto City, a giant city floating above water, in order to establish a commercial contact center. Notably, Manaan is the only planet where Kolto, a liquid substance with advanced healing properties, can be found, and this product functions as the primary source of commerce on Manaan. Kolto is similar to Bacta which is harvested on the planet Thyferra. Because of Kolto's obvious value, Manaan is a target for the ambitions of both the Republic and the Sith, whose rivalry is kept at bay in a delicate and forced balance enforced by the Selkath government in Ahto City. Since the underwater harvesting of the invaluable Kolto is an operation reserved exclusively for the amphibious Selkath, their neutral position is strengthened despite the potential use of overwhelming force by the Sith.
The water planet is most similar to the planets Kamino and Mon Calamari where similar floating cities are constructed to meet the needs of the many thousands of other species incapable of tolerating ocean living. The massive cities are held afloat by massive repulsor arrays and require routine maintenance, functioning as the single most significant source of import trade on Manaan. Many creatures swim around on the sea floor of the planet, and among them, the deadly Firaxan Sharks stalk the depths.
Mandalore is the homeworld of the Mandalorian people. During the Galactic Civil War, Mandalore Fenn Shysa and a team of commandos vigilantly defended it from any incursions. Jango Fett and Boba Fett are both Mandalorians. Beskar can be found there. Beskar is a tough iron that can not only cut through the crab armor of the Vong, but lightsabers also have a tough time cutting through it.
Mantooine is a jungle planet in the Atrivis Sector. Its inhabitants were constantly at war with Fest. However, the two planets ultimately found common cause in their conflict with the Empire.
Maramere is a planet appearing in the
A major city on the planet is Point Modai, an island spaceport and population center. The city was attacked by the Saboaths using their experimental Trihexalon weapons. The attack was repelled by Reti and Gallia, who had sensed that the city was in danger.
Later, the group goes to the northern polar regions of the planet to destroy a mining facility that gathers the materials necessary for making Trihexalon. The facility, built into the side of an enormous mountain, is destroyed by the group and the Trade Federation apparently is forced to cease operations on the planet.
Maridun was the forested homeworld of the Amanin species. Maridun was discovered by the Galactic Empire 11 BBY. The Imperials soon began mining operations. However, the Amanin attacked these operations and caused a full scale battle. Following the Battle of Maridun, the Imperials made a deal with an Amanin lorekeeper in which his tribe would help slave traders capture Amanin from other tribes as slaves.
After the Empire moved its attention towards other systems, smaller private interests began to take control of the slave trade. After only a few years of Imperial and private slave trading, Amanin were spread through much of the Galaxy. Some of these Amanin returned to Maridun with blasters and other advanced technology, taking control of local tribes.
Maridun was dotted with a number of sacred grounds, within which Amanin tribes carried out takital.
Maridun also appears in Star Wars: The Clone Wars. It was inhabited by the Lurmen Colonists. It was the site of a battle between Anakin Skywalker, Ashoka Tano, Ayla Secura, and two clones against Lok Durk and a droid army.
 Mechis III
Mechis III is an industrial/factory planet which appeared in the Expanded Universe. It is primarily a gigantic factory similar to Coruscant in the fact that it has little, or possibly no natural life. The planet seems to have been established long before pollution laws came into place. The planet has a human population of approximately 73, at its peak, as most of the laborers were droids.
The planet was almost entirely automated, as the organic population had almost no influence. It remained neutral during most wars, as either side used it to produce its weapons, ships, droids, tools, equipment, etc. It was later considered 'too important to consider attacking'. It had no military force to defend it, and only a long-outdated electronic security defense.
In the Old Republic it served as one of the many droid foundries of the Techno Union. During the days of the Empire, it was electronically sliced by the droid bounty hunter IG-88. He then converted the planet into his basing ground for its operations and an eventual droid revolution, modifying every droid being produced with special espionage and obedience programming, to be similarly self-aware like him and ready to rebel. With billions of droids being produced, all sending information back to IG-88, it gave IG-88 a very powerful, but hidden, galactic presence. Mechis III was considered to be the staging ground for IG-88s galactic takeover, but the existing IG-88 models were destroyed by Boba Fett, Dash Rendar, and the explosion of the second Death Star, mere moments before the takeover program could be activated, thus nipping their rebellion in the bud.
Melida/Daan is a temperate world which, twenty years before the Galactic Civil War, had been the home to a bloody civil war of its own. The factions involved were the Melida and the Daan. The two groups could not come up with a name for their planet, so the Jedi archives compromised.
Neither the Melida nor the Daan could remember the origins of their civil war, only their complete hatred for one another. Battle was glorified; children were trained to use weapons from an early age, and giant martyr-filled tombs, called Halls of Evidence, dotted the skyline of the severely damaged capital city of Zehava. Most of the middle-aged people of Melida/Daan were dead from previous battles, and the armies consisted primarily of the elderly.
However, a youth organization called the Young despised the civil war, and took a stand. The Young was led by two teenagers called Neild and Cerasi. Obi-Wan found a deep commitment into helping the Young even after being warned by Qui-Gon not to take sides. During the mission to Melida/Daan to rescue the Jedi Knight Tahl, Obi-Wan Kenobi briefly left the Jedi Order to assist the Young in uniting the planet. They succeeded in stopping the civil war, and focused on rebuilding the destroyed world. However, after forming a government with Neild the governor, the Young slowly ripped itself apart. Neild claimed that Obi-Wan was an outsider even after his part played in the war for peace, Obi-wan missed being a Jedi. Neild and his squad of demolishers tried to demolish the Hall of Evidence were Cerasi's family were buried and Wehutti, Cerasi's father rearmed him and his followers and tried to stop Neild. Unfortunately Cerasi was shot in the chest in the confusion and died. Each side blamed the other and war seemed inevitable. Obi-Wan turned to the Jedi for help and ask for Qui-Gon Jinn to assist. After the arrival of Qui-Gon they soon discovered that Mawat, a Scavenger Young from the countryside wanted war to erupt so he could control the planet. He had posted sharpshooters on the roof and were told to shoot if either Wehutti or Neild backed down. Obi-Wan found Neild in the Hall of Evidence were Cerasi's ashes were and told him what had happened. When they made their way to the door Mawat was wireing explosives and was going to blame it on Neild. Obi-Wan and Neild stopped them and a battle broke out. Qui-Gon arrived just in time with a hologram form of Cerasi speaking about the war for peace. Everyone dropped their weapons and the final battle was over.
Meridias is a radioactive wasteland of a planet that was once the home of the Grissmaths, who used neighboring Nam Chorios as a prison facility. The planet was most likely harmed from constant fighting of a nuclear level. Furthermore, it appears that the planet may have been harmed by their own Death Seed plague. Meridian was once the capital of the Meridian Sector, when the Grissmath dynasty ruled the region.
Metalorn is a sun-beaten forest planet. In the upper atmosphere, it is almost impossible to land because the extreme heat will melt a weak ship. However, the lower surface of Metalorn is a lush tropical forest.
Metellos is a planet in the Metello System. It has an extremely large population of roughly 900 billion and is mostly urban. The planet's two agricultural moons, Sarnai and Juves, provide Metellos with the necessities, like food and water. Metellos uses the extreme heat caused by the large amount of metal on the planet's surface to create power.
Mimban is the fifth planet in the Circarpous Major System, in the Expansion Region. It is a cloud-covered jungle world that is largely unexplored, orbited by two moons. The planet, formally known as Circarpous V, was never colonized by the Cicarpousians, but it was the site of an Imperial energy mining operation. As such, the atmosphere over Mimban was very turbulent. Starships without special hulls faced tremendous danger from the energy storms that streaked the stratosphere. The surface of the planet is dank, and the perpetual mist makes it difficult to distinguish night from day. The planet has five makeshift mining towns, all run by Imperials during the height of the operation.
Mimban has numerous intelligent species indigenous to the world, including the "Greenies", Coway, Mimbanites, Latter, Thrella, Timoliini, angtars and frozarns and over twenty types of animals. The "Greenie" is a species of green-furred Mimbanite humanoids who have been exploited by the human population. The Coway a gray-furred species of troglodytes who are powerful warriors. Mimban had many other species as well who have since become extinct. One of these, the Thrella, built enormous temples and structures honoring their many gods.
Mimban was the site of the first face-to-face encounter between Darth Vader and Luke Skywalker. Luke Skywalker and Princess Leia Organa crashlanded on this planet when en route to a diplomatic meeting on Circarpous IV. The two faced many natural dangers in the Mimban swamps, and also confronted Darth Vader in a quest to find the legendary Kaiburr Crystal.
In Yuuzhan Vong War the planet was a Republic ally, but it was soon conquered by Yuuzhan Vong warriors.
Molavar was a backwater, desert world in the Outer Rim, with a number of seedy spaceports and low-income moisture farms. It was inhabited by beings of various species, but especially by the native Molavaran race. Darca Nyl chased Lycan to the planet.
 Mon Calamari
Mon Calamari is the home planet of the Mon Calamari and the Quarren. It is located in the Tingel Arm which borders the Outer Rim. The planet orbits the large sun of Daca, the main star for the entire system. Mon Calamari is the name given to the planet by humans. The native species both refer to the planet as Dac.
These two species have struggled to claim the planet. The Mon Calamari live comfortably on the surface and below although the Quarren live in the depths of the oceans. The planet looks like a blue marble from space because of its ocean-covered surface. The cities are like those of Kamino and Manaan. The two species finally made a treaty and united Mon Calamari.
During the Clone Wars, the world was attacked twice by of Independent Systems. First, Count Dooku devastated the world with the Dark Reaper. Later, the Quarren Isolation League attempted to overthrow the Mon Calamari Council.
The planet was also attacked by the reborn Emperor Palpatine's deadly World Devastators which attacked its floating cities, shipyards and factories. The planet shows up in the last mission of the Nintendo 64 and PC video game Star Wars: Rogue Squadron.
The Mon Calamari Cruiser, the main military starship of the Rebel Alliance/New Republic / Galactic Federation of Free Alliances, is built in Mon Calamari. An example of these ships is the great Home One, the flagship of the Rebel Alliance in the Battle of Endor.
Famous Mon Calamari include Admiral Ackbar and Admiral Cha Niathal.
 Mon Gazza
Mon Gazza is an industrial spice-mining world, second only to the planet Kessell. Large cranes and bulldozers can be found everywhere. It is home to some podraces, including Mon Gazza Speedway, Spice Mine Run and Zugga Challenge.
 Monor II
Morphia is a planet mentioned in passing in The Star Wars Holiday Special. No characteristics of it were given; however, the film elaborated upon the native species, known as "Amorphians", who appear to be a humanoid-type species. They were introduced when Lumpawarrump prepares to build a communication device, which he plans to use to fool the Imperials who have invaded his family's home into going back to their base. To prepare to build this, he watches an instructional video, which features an Amorphian being. The video has a female announcer, who explains that Amorphians' motor abilities regularly malfunction in day to day life, and for him to expect such malfunctions in the video. In the video, the Amorphian frequently loses control of his voluntary actions, and has many involuntary movements, or shuts down completely.
A university planet located in the Tapani Sector, Mrlsst is covered in schools. The planet features strange plants called greenstalks, which are gigantic bushy columns. It is the site of the imaginary Phantom cloaking device project which was used to gain funds from the Galactic Empire.
A member world of the Confederacy of Independent Systems, Muunilinst is home to the Banking Clan, headed by chairman San Hill. It later becomes one of the financial centers of the Empire, and is known as "Moneyland". The planet shows up in the Star Wars: Clone Wars cartoon. Muunilinst's capital city was obliterated by the Yuuzhan Vong.
The race of Muun reside here.
 Munto Codru
Munto Codru is an Outer Rim planet of the Codru system, largely ignored by the rest of the galaxy, mostly due to its lack of exports. What industry is there is devoted to the survival of the native Codru-Ji and the Wyrwulves.
Muskree is home to the Hallotans, a culture of catacomb dewellers, and is located in the Darpa Sector. Muskree is known to be an industrial planet and creates pollutions that contains heavy chlorofluorocarbons. This has destroyed any level of atmosphere that existed before and the lack there of induces strong UV rays that would cause major harm to anyone who would choose to live planet side. Because of this, Muskree is usually very unpopular planet and not often traveled to other than trade reasons alone.
Mustafar, seen in Episode III, is a young volcanic planet. Two different species are native to the small world, the Mustafarians and the Kubazians. Mustafar is caught between the gravitational forces of two gas giants, Lefrani and Jestefad, in the Outer Rim, causing massive volcanic disturbances, and was home to the last secret Separatist base. At this base, former friends Obi-Wan Kenobi and Anakin Skywalker engaged in a duel, where Anakin suffered severely at the hands of Obi-Wan and lava. The resulting injuries required Anakin's master Palpatine to have much of Anakin's anatomy replaced by mechanical prosthetics. Following this treatment, Anakin became visually recognizable as Darth Vader.
Mygeeto was a major holding of the Banking Clan. It is a frigid world of crystallized ice that contains many ultramodern cities. Mygeeto was one of the CIS planets that was besieged by the Republic during the Outer Rim Sieges late in the Clone Wars. It is also the place where Ki-Adi-Mundi was killed by his Galactic Marine Clone Troopers who turned on him after receiving Order 66. This world was colonized by the Muuns in 60,000 BBY. Its only native species, a small lemurlike race, have been reduced to the title of slaves. The name "Mygeeto" bears an interesting linguistic resemblance to the Hebrew Megiddo.
In the ancient trade language of the Muuns, Mygeeto means "gem". The Jedi longed to explore the planet for crystals suitable for lightsaber use, but since its discovery, Mygeeto had been firmly in the hold of the InterGalactic Banking Clan.
Also, according to Star Wars: Battlefront II, Mygeeto contained a type of power source which Palpatine needed for the Death Star, and was gained by clone troopers serving under the Jedi Ki-Adi-Mundi. Also according to Star Wars: Battlefront II, the surface of Mygeeto was covered with large particle cannons.
After the birth of the Galactic Empire Mygeeto became a "bank world" for the Grand Imperial Navy. After the death of Emperor Palpatine and the destruction of the second Death Star, the New Republic liberated Mygeeto from Imperial clutches and Mygeeto became an official member of the New Republic. Mygeeto managed to avoid the attacks of the Yuuzhan Vong, however the rest of the Muun territory did not fare as well.
 Mylok IV
Mylok IV is the homeworld to the Nharwaak and Habeen. Working together, they created a new hyperdrive system and sold it to the Empire. The Nharwaak decided to sell the technology to the Rebels, but were destroyed by the Empire before they could do so.
Myrkr is a largely forested world, home to the Ysalamiri, creatures which create bubbles which push back the Force. This ability has evolved to protect them from pack animals called Vornskrs, the only known animals that hunt exclusively by sensing the Force.
The word "myrkr" means "darkness" in Old Norse.
 Mytus VII
Mytus is a small, rocky planet with low gravity. It hardly has an atmosphere, floating in the asteroid field of the Mytus System. It was once home to the Corporate Sector Authority prison, commonly known as Star's End. Star's End was destroyed by Han Solo in a jailbreak prior to the Battle of Yavin, when Solo overloaded the power generators of the prison—but since the prison was formed out of molecularly-bonded carbon, instead of blowing up, the prison was launched like a rocket. It was not able to achieve escape velocity, and when it fell back to the surface of Mytus VII, it was rendered unusable.
Naboo, seen in Episodes I, II, III, and VI, is a small planet located in the Chommell sector. Naboo is the home planet of Queen Padmé Amidala and Jar Jar Binks, as well as Senator (later Chancellor and then Emperor) Palpatine. In The Phantom Menace, it was the site of a blockade by the Trade Federation, and the Battle of Naboo between the Federation and the native inhabitants, the Gungans. The inability of the Galactic Senate to deal with the blockade led to Palpatine being elected as the new Supreme Chancellor. Naboo is featured in Attack of the Clones, where ten years after the Battle of Naboo, Padmé and Anakin return to the Theed Palace. In Episode III, it briefly appears during Padmé's funeral procession. The Return of the Jedi DVD edition briefly features Naboo celebrating the defeat of the Empire. Naboo has roughly 600 million inhabitants and 3 natural moons called Ohma D'un, Rori and Tasia.
 Nal Hutta
Nal Hutta is the current Hutt central world. It is the capital of Hutt Space and is located in the Y'Toub System. Nal Hutta translates into "Glorious Jewel" in Huttese, but it was originally named Evocar. It was one planet colonized by the Hutts after they left their ancestral home Varl; they used their notorious business acumen to first trade technology with the primitive native Evocii for real estate; they made a number of air tight contracts, and eventually legally owned their planet; the Evocii appealed to the Jedi for aid, but the contracts were solid, and the best the Jedi could do was to evacuate the Evocii to Nar Shaddaa. Once a pleasant world, Nal Hutta and its moon, Nar Shaddaa, were transformed into gloomy and busy industrial trade centers dotted with Huttese palaces and private estates that lay in the heart of Hutt space. The planet is ruled by a council of the eldest members of the Clans of the Ancients, the oldest Hutt families; precedence on the council is determined by the Hutt clan's various prowess at business and wealth.
 Nam Chorios
Nam Chorios is a barren world located in the Meridian Sector, on the border between the Mid Rim and Outer Rim Territories. The capital of the world is Hweg Shul, with a population under ten thousand. Some portions of the world are extremely rocky, while other regions consist of flat plains with crystal formations. The rocky regions are home to gun turrets that prevent the escape of the drochs and prisoners. As of nine years after the Battle of Endor, the two main factions on the planet were the Rationalist followers and the Theran followers. The Loronar Corporation also attempted to plunder the world's crystal formations for use in weaponry and synthdroids.
Over 700 years before the Battle of Endor, the Grissmath Dynasty, originally from the planet Meridias, used Nam Chorios as a prison colony. They brought the insectlike Drochs to the world, which carried the Death Seed plague. This plague terrorized the entire Meridian Sector roughly nine years after the Battle of Endor. However, Nam Chorios quickly recovered from the plague, although the future of the region of the space is not common knowledge.
 Nar Hekka
Nar Hekka is a planet controlled by the Hutts, situated in the outer edges of the Y'Toub system. It's notably inhabited by Tagta the Hutt, one of the higher subordinates of Jiliac the Hutt and Jabba the Hutt, the late chiefs of Desilijic clan.
 Nar Shaddaa
Nar Shaddaa, also known as "Smugglers Moon", is the moon that orbits Nal Hutta. It is covered in kilometer-high buildings like Coruscant. It is inhabited by many thugs, smugglers, thieves, and the like. It also contains many slums and refugee camps which the Exchange, a criminal society, controls and enslaves the refugees. It is a very dangerous place to be if you do not know your way around.
Jedi Master Eeth Koth is a well-known Jedi from Nar Shaddaa.
In Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic II: The Sith Lords, Nar Shaddaa is where the Exile meets the Exchange leader G0T0 and lost Jedi Master Zez-Kai Ell.
Nar Shaddaa shows up in the PC Game Star Wars: Dark Forces, as well as both of its sequels, Star Wars: Jedi Knight: Dark Forces II and Star Wars: Jedi Knight II: Jedi Outcast. It is also featured in Star Wars: The Force Unleashed, when Starkiller travels to a TIE Factory over the planet in search of the rogue Jedi Rahm Kota.
Necropolis is a world most famous for its large cemetery. It has an interesting history, involving a witch who legendarily could bring the dead back to life. The planet was also the site where wanted scientist Dr. Evazan was experimenting with the reanimation of dead tissue. Evazan was later killed by Boba Fett and his research was lost forever.
Neimoidia is the homeworld to the Neimoidians. The Trade Federation was originally based on Neimoidia before the Battle of Naboo, but after the Naboo conflict (including the Trade Federation's loss), the Trade Federation senator, Lott Dod, was ordered to tell Viceroy Nute Gunray to disband the Trade Federation army. Fearing an attack from the Republic if they would not comply, the Trade Federation fled Neimoidia for a colony world, Cato Neimoidia, to continue to develop the Trade Federation's vast battle droid army well into the Clone Wars.
Nelvaan is the home of the Nelvaanians and home to a Techno Union laboratory that experimented on the warriors of the Nelvaanian tribes, though the base was destroyed by Anakin Skywalker and the mutated Nelvaan warriors. It appears in the Clone Wars cartoon mini-series.
The planet is orbited by three moons and has a very low gravity, roughly two-thirds to one-half Earth normal. The local Nelvaanians choose to ignore off-worlders but are forced to notice and acknowledge Bothan water freighters that occasionally fill their holds with the pure glacial run-off from this planet. As a consequence of Nelvaan's low gravity, the planet became host to huge life forms such as the mighty Horax as well as other creatures that are yet to be discovered.
 Nespis VIII
Nespis VIII was a planet in the Auril system (itself within the Auril Outer Rim sector, dominated by the Cron Drift, the remnants of the supernovae that wiped out Ossus and two other of the nine star systems in the sector). The space city (abandoned before the Clone Wars, but nevertheless defended by capable ion cannons), where the Rebel Alliance fled after the destruction of Da Soocha V and Pinnacle Base by the Reborn Emperor's Galaxy Gun, is the birthplace of Anakin Solo.
Nespis VIII (8) is also the name of the orbiting Space Station built over millennia by the Jedi. The gargantuan station grew to be the size of a small planet and developed its own weather patterns. The Station is rumored to contain a massive Jedi library.
 New Alderaan
With Alderaan destroyed, Princess Leia led the Alderaanian survivors to New Alderaan, which was founded after the Galactic Civil War. New Alderaan is located in the Outer Rim region of the galaxy and is a temperate green planet, which is kept in great secrecy, although the reborn Emperor Palpatine and Warlord Zsinj both managed to find it.
The Royal House of Alderaan, in the person of Leia Organa-Solo and her children, continue to hold sovereignty of both New Alderaan and the Alderaan systems. Leia Organa Solo chose to hold the throne for her children and instead became an Ambassador, although her children will not claim the throne due to their commitment to the Jedi Order. The government on New Alderaan administers the former Alderaan system.
 New Apsolon
New Apsolon is a temperate, highly populated world that was once under the control of a dictatorship. The Civilized, or Absolutes/Nobles, had complete control over the lesser class, the Workers. The Workers staged a revolution against the Civilized, a scene similar to that of the Russian Revolution. However, since the destruction of the dictatorship, the Civilized and Workers have been locked in tension. Murder and deception are commonplace.
The Jedi Tahl was sent with Qui-Gon Jinn and Obi-Wan Kenobi on a mission to rescue two young Apsolon leaders after the murder of their father. The mission resulted in the death of Tahl, and Qui-Gon's vengeance and investigation of the corruption on New Apsolon. Even after the mission's success, New Apsolon remained in unrest. Thankfully, the government pressed on, hoping to fuse the gap between the Absolutes and Workers. However, New Apsolon's current status remains unknown.
 New Bornalex
New Bornalex was the site of a significant battle fought between the Galactic Republic and the Confederacy of Independent Systems during the Clone Wars. The victorious Republic forces on the planet were led by Clone Marshal Commander Bacara.
 New Cov
New Cov is the third world in the Churba star system. It has no indigenous intelligent life, but its vast jungles teem with abundant natural resources. Eight walled cities, including the city of Ilic, have been built on New Cov by the New Cov Biomolecule Company to serve as work colonies. The sentient plants of the world are a great source of biomolecules—an important manufacturing component that cannot be synthesized. These biomolecules are used to create medicines and in partially organic industrial processes.
The Covies harvest the biomolecules, process them, and then prepare them for shipment to heavy industry planets. Of course, the dangerous plants eat as many harvesters as they can, and the armored city walls are designed to keep out plants and their spores.
 New Plympto
New Plympto was a temperate terrestrial world in the Core Worlds region. Before the Yuuzhan Vong took control of the planet, it had a population of about fifteen million living on its surface. When the Vong attacked, they used a biological weapon on New Plympto, killing all living things on its surface. The planet was rendered uninhabitable.
Nilban is a frigid planet found in the Outer Rim Territories, and inhabited by warrior tribespeople also named the Nilban. Just prior to the Battle of Coruscant, Obi-Wan Kenobi and Anakin Skywalker, accompanied by clone troopers, travelled out to this snowy world in search of General Grievous. When they did not find him, Anakin instead undertook a quest for the local warriors and experienced a vision of his own destiny, before finding and destroying a Separatist facility secreted on the planet.
 Nim Drovis
Nirauan is a remote planet, in the far end of the known galaxy in Gradilis sector, right on the boundary between Wild Space and the Unknown Regions. It is also located near Chiss Space. It has breathable atmosphere, with a Chiss Outpost on the surface. The Hand of Thrawn was located in the Outpost, as well. However, fifteen years after the Battle of Endor, Mara Jade and Luke Skywalker defeated the Hand and escaped the Outpost after encounters with the base commanders.
Nivek is a night planet which is home to the sacred Nivek shadowmen
Lando Calrissian operated a mining operation on the super-hot world of Nkllon; the operation was destroyed when Grand Admiral Thrawn attacked, stealing over half the mining machines and disabling the refinery. Because it orbits so close to its star, Nkllon's day side experiences temperatures high enough to melt durasteel, and space traffic must slave sublight engines to shieldships designed to survive such extremes. There are also severe boulder storms known as Nkllorian boulder storms.
 Nod Hartha
Nod Hartha is a planet appearing in the Playstation 2 game Star Wars: Jedi Starfighter. It was once home to a production facility that produced the chemical weapon Trihexalon, which the Trade Federation had hoped to use against the Republic during the Clone Wars.
The planet was protected by a vast oribital defense network, which was destroyed by the pirate Nym and his companions before they landed on the world. The production facility was ultimately destroyed and, combined with the destruction of the Mount Meraken mining operation on Maramere, Trihexlon production ceased.
The Nubian Design Collective is a loose grouping of designers and engineers who colonized the planet roughly 300 years before the Battle of Naboo. The collective comprises a number of spacefaring species that accept small contracts for wealthy clients. Nubian technology was used all throughout the galaxy and was readily available on most Republic worlds. When the Empire rose to power, the collective went underground to keep experimental designs away from Imperial hands. Shortly after the Battle of Endor, the collective resurfaced with a completely new catalog. Among the collective's products are the Scurrg H-6 Bomber and J-Type Diplomatic Barge.
The adjective "Nubian" used in the movies to refer to Queen Amidala's ship is cause for some confusion over the planet Naboo. Nubian refers to the planet Nubia, not to Naboo. The most correct adjective form of Naboo is "Nabooan" (based upon the usage for an indigenous wild panther known as a "Nabooan tusk-cat").
 N'zoth III
Obroa-Skai is the home of the oldest and most extensive neutral knowledge archive in the galaxy. It is located in the Inner Rim a stones throw form Myrkr and the Perlemian Trade Route.Grand Admiral Thrawn used the Obroa-Skai database to find information vital to his plot. It was captured by the Yuuzhan Vong relatively early in their invasion, and was used to further their knowledge of the Star Wars galaxy.
Ojom, located in the Deep Core, is a frigid ocean world speckled with enormous glaciers that slowly move across the planet's surface. Each glacier supports a small community of the semi-humanoid Besalisks. Ojom has many space stations orbiting it, most of them larger than the Besalisk glaciers. These stations fill the role of Ojom's spaceports, and are more hospitable than the planet itself.
 Omiddelon III
Omiddelon III is a planet in the Omiddelon system. The planet has four seasons: an intensely hot climate, a brief mild season, an extremely freezing winter, and another mild season. The planet, who's orbital and rotational axes are perpendicular, is home to the adar creatures.
Onderon is one of three planets in the "Stenness Node" in the Japreal System. Onderon has a humid climate, and was once home to a primitive race of humanoids. Like many other fringe worlds, the Onderonians have a distrust of aliens. Onderon's largest moon is Dxun which is largely jungle and mountain terrain. Onderon had a power struggle within the royal family five years after the Jedi Civil War, which was aided by the Jedi Exile.
 Oovo IV
The planet of Oovo IV hosts many podracing events due to its low gravity. It is also the site of an asteroid prison from which Jango Fett and Zam Wesell both attempted to recover the smuggler Bendix Fust. Fett then acquired a Firespray patrol craft, that would later become his Slave I. The planet shows up in the videogame Star Wars: Bounty Hunter and in the videogame Star Wars: Episode I Racer. Podrace tracks include Vengeance, Executioner and The Gauntlet.
Ophideraan is the planet once ruled by the Serpent Masters, who enslaved people until Luke Skywalker freed them. This was the time in between Star Wars Episodes IV and V. Also, Tanith Shire is a native to Ophideraan that met Luke in the shipyards of Fondor.
 Ord Cestus
 Ord Ibanna
Ord Ibanna is a gas giant like Bespin planet located in the Outer Rim. It is home to the Gandalorian prostitute training camp, as featured in the Dark Empire series. It was at one time home to several podraces, including Scrapper's Run, Dethro's Revenge and Abyss.
Ord Ibanna looks a lot like Cloud City.
 Ord Mantell
Ord Mantell is a scrap heap planet on the Mid Rim. It is home to mercenaries, exiles, murderers, smugglers and all other sorts of illegals. The planet is first mentioned (as Ord Mandell) in The Empire Strikes Back, depicted in an audio story entitled Rebel Mission to Ord Mantell, and seen in the video games Star Wars: Shadows of the Empire and in Star Wars: Jedi Knight: Jedi Academy. Ord Mantell has a mostly human population with Talz, Ithorians, Rodians, and Arcona representing it as well.
Ord Mantell is a planet with a yellowish atmosphere and greyish-yellow hue to the environment, likely due to extensive pollution from junked starships and other mechanical apparatus.
Ord Mantell was founded in the year 12,000 BBY as an Old Republic base. The Jedi Knight Pablo-Jiil brought peace to this world until Palpatine and the Galactic Empire took over. Once the Empire was defeated, the planet had dozens of run-ins with bounty hunters including Skorr, Dengar, Bossk, and Boba Fett. Han Solo, Chewbacca, Luke Skywalker, and other major Rebel heroes had connections to Ord Mantell. In the story Rebel Mission to Ord Mantell (which takes place shortly before the events in The Empire Strikes Back), Solo confronts a bounty hunter named Cypher, who tries to capture Solo for delivery to Jabba the Hutt. In the year 9 ABY, the New Republic added Ord Mantell to its territory. The following year Grand Admiral Thrawn attacked the planet to keep the New Republic off balance. The planet also plays host to a large race known as the Blockade Runners Derby. Han Solo himself is a three-time winner of the race.
The prefix "Ord" refers to "Ordnance Regional Depot". "Ords" are storage and disposal facilities for outdated weapons and military equipment used during the Old Republic era. Some of these facilities are also used by the Empire. It has been referenced in Star Wars Knights of the Old Republic II: The Sith Lords.
Ord Mantell is a part of the Star Wars Battlefront: Renegade Squadron story, and is a playable map, mostly in junkyard-like areas where a large hollow hull of a ship can be found, in addition to an energy complex, with cantinas and buildings seen in the distance.
Ord Mantell is also part of the Star Wars Galaxies story, and a station in the system, Tansarii Point Station, is the tutorial area for new players.
 Ord Tasson
Ord Tasson is located in the Ord system. Ord Mantell is also seen, in the introduction, in the Star Wars galaxies online video game.
The Rebel spy Crix Madine was held on Orinackra for a time in an Imperial detention facility. In Star Wars: Dark Forces, he was rescued by Kyle Katarn, after which Madine could provide more information on the Dark Trooper project.
Osarian is a lush, green planet with forests, white sand beaches, and sprawling cities. The forests consist of giant wroshyr trees, like Kashyyyk. The citizens are usually human, because this planet is believed to be a human homeworld. It is located in the same rim of the galaxy as Kashyyyk and Naboo. Osarian is not even mentioned in any Star Wars movie or video game, much less pictured.
Ossus was once a training ground for the Jedi Order, and was the location of a vast museum of Jedi artifacts and ancient lore. During the Great Sith War, Sith Lord Exar Kun caused a star in the nearby Cron Cluster to go supernova, the shockwave from which would have terrible effects on the planet. The Jedi rescued as many artifacts as they could, and had to leave the rest behind. The Neti Master Ood Bnar stood over a cache of lightsabers and turned himself into his giant tree form, surviving the shockwave and protecting his charge for over 4,000 years, until he awakened to fight Executor Sedriss during the reign of the reborn Emperor. It is believed that the Jedi Order was created on Ossus.
In the Legacy of the Force series, Ossus was a planet with a Jedi academy. It was held hostage by GAG forces in the novel Sacrifice.
Ovorat is a Core World located in the Ovorat System along the Corellian Trade Spine between Duro and Corellia. Ovorat was a contract holder with the Galactic Economic Expansion and Investment Authority (G.E.E.I.A.) some two hundred years BBY. Much like the majority of other worlds that were part of the program, Eia Ovorat’s effort to build a major trading center along the Corellian Trade Spine failed miserably, with the Republic losing millions of credits in the investment. However, the Overatians made a surprising comeback.
In the aftermath of the project, Eia Overat’s government, a democratically elected governing council called the Schwetta (its members were called Schwettari) wanted erase the memory of the disastrous project and so erased the ‘Eia’ prefix from its name. The G.E.E.I.A. caused a sizeable portion of the planet’s natural landscape to be ruined by commercial development (which failed).
The Schwetta decided to invest in converting the commercial district into a theme park filled with state-of-the-art rides and attractions. EnterSpace, as it came to be called, eventually became the galaxy’s preeminent amusement park, attracting millions of tourists yearly to the Ovorat System. The success of the theme park brought enormous revenue onto the planet, which allowed the Schwetta to clean up the planet’s cities and preserve much of the planet’s surface as nature preserves.
During the Yuuzhan Vong invasion of the galaxy, the invaders laid siege to Ovorat. The New Republic managed to hold the Yuuzhan Vong off and Ovorat was saved from Yuuzhan Vong oppression. The capital city of the planet is the city of Piassu.
Pacha is the beautiful water world of the aquatic Lomin species. It was an oceanic resort world with casino submarines. It was attacked by Grand Admiral Thrawn in 9 ABY. Garik Loran of Wraith Squadron was from Pantolomin.
Panna is a water planet introduced in the animated segment of The Star Wars Holiday Special. Its surface has an orange hue to it, and the oceans seem to be composed of a thick liquid with a high surface tension. The name perhaps is an allusion to the Italian word for "whipped cream," panna, which also has a thick consistency. It apparently has at least one major city established. The city was known to have been occupied by the Empire, as evidenced in The Holiday Special. Troops marched through the city, keeping a watch. In The Holiday Special, Boba Fett makes a trip to the city to get a serum to cure a sleeping virus contracted by Han Solo and Luke Skywalker from a talisman Han was searching for. It was in this city that Fett first revealed his true allegiance, when he made contact with Darth Vader via viewscreen, and updated him on his progress in attempting to capture the rebels.
This world is also considered the birthplace of the beverage lomin-ale.
 Peragus II
Peragus II refers to a planet rich in fuel which appeared in the game Knights of the Old Republic II. During the first attempts to mine the planet, an accidental blaster shot ignited the fuel, and a sizeable chunk of the planet blew off into space, exposing the planet's core, and forming a small asteroid field. The explosion rendered the planet uninhabitable. So, mining then took place solely in the asteroid belt. An HK-50 droid, stowed away aboard the Ebon Hawk, manipulated the droids and miners into killing each other off, to preserve the Jedi Exile's bounty for itself. After a short battle between the Ebon Hawk, and the Republic Cruiser, Harbinger, the asteroid field was completely destroyed, possibly taking the rest of the planet with it. The destruction of Peragus II meant that many planets suffered the loss of fuel, notably Telos--which was being reconstructed after being decimated during the Jedi Civil War--and had a space station over the planet. Without the fuel the space station would drift into the planet and cause another massive disaster.
Phindar was a planet in the Outer Rim Territories, near Mandalore sector. It was controlled by a criminal organization, the Syndicat, until 44 BBY, when it was overthrown by the Jedi Knights Qui-Gon Jinn and Obi-Wan Kenobi. The Phindians then elected a Governor. The planet was orbited by Phindar Station, which was twice attacked by the Confederacy of Independent Systems in 20 BBY, during the Clone Wars. The planet was an early member of the New Republic.
This planet was home to the double-headed Troig species. This system was in the Koornacht Cluster. It was discovered shortly before the Battle of Naboo, which took place at 32 B.B.Y. (Before the Battle of Yavin)
 Polis Massa
Polis Massa, the birthplace of Luke Skywalker and Princess Leia Organa, was once an arid, barren planetoid and the origin of a colony of resulting asteroids. It was originally the homeworld of the little-known Eellayin civilization, who dwelt in underground cities such as Wiyentaah, but the world was fractured by a mysterious cataclysm. This natural disaster formed a field of asteroids known as Polis Massa, especially the largest of them. The Eellayin civilization disappeared.
About 519 BBY, the Kallidahin from Kallidah, another world in the Subterrel sector, abandoned their homeworld and under the leadership of the Archaeological Research Council of Kallidah settled Polis Massa Base. They sought to prove the Eellayin were the ancestors of the Kallidahin through cloning tissue samples recovered in their digs. The most important find was the lost city of Wiyentaah (not far from the Research Base), discovered 59 BBY. began an archaeological mining project on this planetoid, to uncover the mysteries of the cataclysm and the native species it destroyed. The Local Dig was established over Wiyentaah. Such was the length of this project, the Kallidahin became known as Polis Massans themselves.
Excavations on the largest Polis Massa asteroids uncovered many prize artifacts, mostly from deep within the planetoid. The Polis Massans analyzed these artifacts for organic tissue suitable for cloning. Though the aliens frequented the Subterrel Sector, they had little contact with the galaxy and as a whole, the Polis Massa outpost remained remote and hidden.
The gravitational pull on the rocky colony was just strong enough to be harmful to those who walked the surface without the proper equipment or protection. However, the facilities built on the asteroids were especially gravity-controlled inside and so suitable for living in.
Polis Massa was technically a loyal part of the Galactic Republic and friendly to the Jedi. Far from any major trade route, the remote settlement served as an emergency sanctuary for the Jedi after Order 66, during the rise of the Empire and Palpatine's Great Jedi Purge. The colony also housed the medical facilities in which Padmé Amidala Skywalker gave birth to the twins Luke and Leia, and subsequently died, having lost her will to live. It was here that Bail Organa chose to adopt Leia into his family. When Yoda arrived with Bail, he was visited by the specter of Qui-Gon Jinn who offered to tutor Obi-Wan Kenobi in the art of surviving one's death with the consciousness still intact.
Not long after the formation of the Galactic Empire, the Inquisitors Malorum and Sancor began investigations of Polis Massa, discovering much information to be sent to Darth Vader. In a fateful run-in with Obi-Wan Kenobi at the Research Base, Sancor lost his life.
During the Galactic Civil War, shortly before the Battle of Yavin, Imperial intelligence tracked the Death Star plans to a small Rebel outpost in the medical center. The 501st Legion stormed the facility, and managed to obtain one holodisc. Overall, the raid was only a partial success, with the Rebels beaming the remainder of the plans to Princess Leia Organa's corvette, the Tantive IV, orbiting over Tatooine.
Polis Massa did not attract the attention of the Yuuzhan Vong and was not damaged by the war that their incursion had caused.
Polis Massa also makes an appearance in Star Wars: Battlefront II.
Praesitlyn is a planet in Sluis Sector. It is also a major hub for communication between sectors. Praesitlyn was under attack by the Separatist Admiral Pors Tonith.
A small taskforce containing 20,000 clone troops, Jedi Master Neeja Halcyon, and Padawan Anakin Skywalker was dispatched to reinforce the defenders of Praesitlyn, including the rogue Zozridor Slayke. The Republic was not able to defeat the C.I.S. in ship to ship combat, but Anakin Skywalker took 20 clone troops and landed in the enemy base to rescue the hostages so that planetary bombardment could take place. However, after rescuing the hostages, Anakin captured Admiral Pors Tonith, thus saving countless lives. Then, the Republic prevented Separatist reinforcements from landing. For his heroic actions, Yoda then promoted Anakin to the rank of a Jedi Knight.
Pria is the homeworld of the Priapulin, where the Intergalactic Communications Center stood during the late years of the Old Republic, and where Anakin Skywalker's Jedi test as commander of a fleet against a Separatist army was held.
Pylif is peaceful planet. The planet is Colonized by Pylifians. The Jedi made it their main training ground around 175 ABY. The planet's forests are covered in enormous mushrooms. The Oceans of Pylif cover up most of the planet. The Enormous trees cover up all the sunshine from reaching the planets floor. The Jedi go there for constructing most of their lightsabers in the center of the jedi Counsel memorial. It also was the planet where Jacean Skywalker was killed. It is located near the planet Dakarop.
Pzob is an Outer Rim planet in the remote and uncharted K749 System. It is covered in thick heavy forests and swamps. It was colonized by nomadic Gamorreans decades prior to the formation of the Empire. Eighteen years after the Battle of Yavin, a secret Imperial base was established there as a supply station for the Eye of Palpatine and staffed by forty-five stormtroopers. All but one trooper had been killed by skirmishes with the hostile Gamorreans as they waited for the ship that would never arrive.
Qoribu is a ringed gas giant in the Gyuel system with 55 moons, including Jwlio, Evyl, Zvbo, Ruu, Nrogu, and Kr.
Quermia is the homeworld of the Quermian species, and the Quermian Jedi Master Yarael Poof.
Quilura is a planet filled with grasslands, forests, and rivers. The species of the planet (Gurlanins) can shapeshift into anything or anybody of any shape or size. The only reference is the Republic Commando book series.
A planet in the star wars expanded universe, it is located between the inner rim, and the core worlds, its population is 23 billion, most of which live in cities or space ports due to dry, desert-like conditions over the majority of the planet. Its capital city is located in the "tropical" region of the planet, making frequent rain storms a problem there.
 Ragoon 6
A dangerous, yet lush world, Ragoon 6 was the location of a Jedi training site. The vicious malia beasts roamed the forests and mountains of the planet; they were perfect game for Jedi trainees. Obi-Wan Kenobi and Qui-Gon Jinn trained on the world just prior to their New Apsolon assignment. Anakin Skywalker trained there as a 14 year-old with Obi-Wan Kenobi but got attacked by bounty hunters there.
 Rakata Prime or Lehon
Referred to as the "Unknown World", is the planet where the secret of the Star Forge is kept and the last planet visited by the player in the game before venturing to the Star Forge, where the game concludes.
The planet is home to the Rakata, an alien race that vaguely resembles the Mon Calamari but keep and tame infant rancors, also from the Star Wars universe. The Rakata formerly maintained a vast interstellar empire, which, according to a computer that the player finds on Kashyyyk, encompassed more than 500 star systems at its height. The Star Forge was at the center of their empire, however it ultimately caused their downfall. A disease killed off the vast majority of the Rakata and their empire along with them, confining them to a single planet. Thousands of years later, the Rakata System was the base of operations for Darth Revan's Sith Empire.
The condition in which the player finds the Rakata is a great change from their long history. They have lost almost all knowledge of their former technology, with the exception of the Elders. The Rakata split up into two groups - The Warriors, led by a Rakata known as "The One", and The Elders, who are led simply by a council of elders. The two groups have fallen into constant, petty, small-scale conflict with each other. The Warriors are far more numerous and savage, but the Elders have retained some technology from the Infinite Empire, and also live within the confines of their impenetrable fortress protected by a large, seemingly-arcane electrical barrier. Before the player leaves Rakata Prime, he must ultimately choose which one of the sides to stick with and who to betray. The player can choose to go to the dark side with the Sith or help the Republic.
Rakata technology was closely tied to the force, it may have manipulated it or used it as a power source. Through the ages the race gradually lost their connection with the force and lost the grip they had on their technology. Now the only known member of their race who can grasp their technology is a criminal whose mind was imprisoned in a strange box; the nature of this cage is such that a person will have to trade places with him in order for him to be set free (at which point the prisoner will inhabit their rescuer's body.)
Many millennia later, the Sith Lord Darth Bane knew that the planet's name known by the Rakata was in fact Lehon. On this planet, he found a holocron of Darth Revan, prior to becoming a Jedi again, who through the holocron taught him of the ways of the Old Sith.
Ralltiir was the site of a Rebel uprising just prior to the events of Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hope. Princess Leia and her starship, the Tantive IV of Alderaan, made a stop there and discovered that the Empire was planning the construction of the Death Star. Subsequently the Tantive IV and her crew made a jump to the Toprawa system where they received a transmission of the space station's design plans ultimately used by Luke Skywalker to destroy it.
Ralltiir is also seen in Rogue Squadron III: Ralltiir is home of the Myriad. a tight group of ship designers. the Myriad is not a guild, they deal with all races(as long as the credits are good) the Myriad specialize in microtechnology (i.e. taking a class 4 engine/ spaceyacht and microteching it to fit into a fighter with the same speed output).
The terrain is cliffs and short mountains, with small dry forests on the bottom.
Featured only in the book "Star Wars Jedi Quest #1", Radnor once was covered by a toxic cloud, though it later dissipated.
A craggy red world, Rattatak is located so far out in the Outer Rim that the Republic has no knowledge of it, resulting in a lawless world ruled by brutal warlords who constantly battle for domination. Death and destruction are a daily occurrence in the civil wars until Asajj Ventress stopped the bloodshed and set herself up as a ruler of the planet. Frequenting arenas, Count Dooku finds her and makes her one of his Dark Jedi assassins. During the Clone Wars, after the Battle of Jabiim, Asajj transports Obi-Wan Kenobi and the ARC Trooper Alpha 17 to the planet for interrogation. They escape after a short conflict. The females have no hair
 Raxus Prime
Raxus Prime is a rocky, polluted and dusty planet which has severely contaminated terrain caused by the debris of many crashed starships from distant planets across the galaxy. It is where Count Dooku found the ancient Force Harvester. Three missions in the videogame Star Wars: The Clone Wars take place on Raxus Prime. It is also an important base of the Confederacy of Independent Systems formed by the Sith Lord Count Dooku about two years before the Clone Wars. As a child, Boba Fett had an adventure here, shortly before the Clone Wars battle. During the Dark Times, Raxus Prime was the refuge for crazed Jedi Kazdan Paratus, who in his deranged state recreated the Jedi Temple out of used starship hulks. Paratus was killed by Darth Vader's secret apprentice Galen Marek prior to the rise of the Rebellion. During the rise of the Rebel Alliance the Empire constructed an orbital shipyard above Raxus Prime, where they manufactured Imperial I Class Star Destroyers. This allowed the Empire to take control of the planet since nobody took control of it at that time. Raw material was transported from the surface using a giant rail cannon. The facility was destroyed when Darth Vader's apprentice overloaded the rail cannon and aimed it at the Shipyard dead center, causing it to explode. The rail cannon itself was destroyed when a finished Star Destroyer was made to collied into the structure. This heavily toxic planet is also known, in The Force Unleashed, where droids go to be destroyed.
Recopia is a planet in the Recopi System.
Rephlan is a small planet in the Medisious Sector that is used for the rejuvenation of Wookiee combat soldiers. The planet is known to grow many medicinal drugs that are useful in replenishing health. Stormtroopers who leave the Imperial army without permission often go here to find exile.
 Rhen Var
Rhen Var has a frozen surface, somewhat more mountainous than that of Hoth, but is still covered with snow and ice. Rhen Var was once a fertile paradise filled with vegetation and wild life. Millions of years ago, an atmospheric cataclysm turned it into an icy hibernate surface. Ancient Jedi monuments are buried beneath the surface of Rhen Var.
After The Great Sith War (4,000 BBY), Ulic Qel-Droma sought refuge on Rhen Var, and he is buried there with the secret to defeating the Dark Reaper. Along with the tomb of Qel-Droma, there are great chambers of ancient texts, some that pre-date the Old Republic and the Jedi Order. In one or more of these chambers is believed to be a superweapon built by an ancient race. The weapon is rumored to have the power to wipe out all life in the galaxy and wash it clean.
During the Clone Wars, the Confederacy of Independent Systems, or the CIS, seized Rhen Var with an army so large that the Republic base had to evacuate the planet. Obi-Wan Kenobi informed the Jedi Council about the capture of the planet. After the liberation of the Kashyyyk moon Alaris Prime, the Galactic Republic retook Rhen Var.
Shortly before the Battle of Yavin, the Rebel Alliance discovered the planet and set up a communications center in the old ruins of a harbor. The Emperor learned of the move and dispatched a massive invasion fleet, complete with thousands of Snowtroopers and even a few AT-ATs to take it. The Empire uprooted the Rebels out of the harbor and forced them to retreat to the hills. The fleeing Rebels found short-lived refuge in an old citadel atop a high mountain before the pursuing Imperials caught up and destroyed the remainder of them.
Rhen Var was also featured in the video game Star Wars Battlefront. It was also a major planet in the Clone Wars video game. It's also featured as an
Rhinnal is a Core World in the Darpa Sector that has recently recovered from an ice age. The frigid world operated under the authority of the sector government housed on the nearby planet Esseles, until the Empire arose and seized control of the entire region. The Empire quickly removed the Esseles appointed leader and seated Imperial Governor Phadreas Kole. Rhinnal is best known for wondrous advancements in medicine, and for producing some of the best skilled physicians in the galaxy. The capital city of Rhire contains one of the last Jedi chapter houses where the sick could be healed through the meditation of Jedi Healers.
Rhommamool is a water planet and aquatic nature preserve. It was also the place where the Yuuhzan Vong Executor Nom Anor began the new religion, the "Red Knights of Life", an anti-Jedi and anti-droid movement.
Riflor is a planet in the trinary star system of Riflorii. It has the tendency to change its gravitational pull, making it an unstable, potentially dangerous planet
Rishi is a tropical planet in the Rishi System. This planet is about twelve parsecs from the Rishi Maze. Colonists who have built congested cities and towns in the deep winding valleys, inhabit the planet. The native bird Rishi dwell in the high mountainsides around them. Talon Karrde and Mara Jade used Rishi as a temporary hideout following their abandoned smuggling operations on Myrkr. During the Clone Wars the Republic had a listening post set up, but that was destroyed to stop an invasion on Kamino.
Rinn is a world in the outer edges of the galaxy just of hutt space, and its nearest planets are Ylesia and Barab 1
Roche is actually a dense asteroid field where the insectoid Verpine have made their home. The Verpine are best known as the designers and producers of the B-wing starfighter used by the Rebel Alliance during the Battle of Endor. Although devoid of any habitable planets, the Roche system is teeming with space-born silicon-based lifeforms and is believed to be the system where both the parasitic mynocks and the "ship-eating" space slugs originated.
It has been suggested that the Roche Asteroid Field may be the site of a Rebel outpost seen in the cartoon portion of the Star Wars Holiday special.
The Verpine are also known for weaponry like the Verpine shatter rifle which, unlike blasters, shoots projectiles. The Verpine are mentioned in the Republic Clone Commando series and the Legacy of the Force series.
Rodia is the homeworld to the Rodians and the Rodians bounty hunter Greedo and Drexl Roosh from
Colonization from the Hutt race brought the planet under the control of the Hutt Empire. Much of the planet became stripped of its natural resources and polluted to support the Hutts' way of life. Twelve years later the Hutts were overthrown and killed.
The planet fell into anarchy yet again, but a band of Rodians teamed together and with the help of the New Republic, founded the second democracy on Rodia.
During the war with the Yuuzhan Vong, Rodia was occupied, along with many other nearby planets. Unlike many other species, however, the Rodians simply retreated into their forests and used guerrilla warfare tactics to fight the Vong. The Yuuzhan Vong left the planet in frustration of the guerrilla tactics. Rodia then became a member of the Galactic Alliance.
Ronika was a colony world that was terraformed into a common exile for criminals in the Empress Teta system under the rule of Empress Teta. It was the eighth planet in the system. Following the Unification Wars, many rebels were exiled to Ronika, but were later granted amnesty for their service in the Great Hyperspace War.
Ronika was a desolate place, covered in desert and rock. Its surface was exposed to high levels of ultraviolet radiation, and was home to stinger moths.
Jori Daragon was sent here for stealing the Starbreaker 12, but was able to easily escape and fly back to Koros Major.
Roon is home to humans, Twi'leks, Duros, Sullustans, and Koboks. Gaff was born on Roon. Roon has a fixed orbit (one side is permanently light and the other is permanently dark). The dark side is mainly ocean and there are many storms and whirlpools. Roon's surface was destroyed during the war with the Yuuzhan Vong.
Roona is another habitable planet in the Roon system. It is home to the Roonans. It was destroyed by the Yuuzhan Vong.
Rori is one of the three moons of Naboo, and one of two that are habitable. King Narmele the Explorer colonized the swampy moon around 2000 BBY, and a city there still bears his name. Some scientists contend that earlier colonists settled Rori before the Narmele colony, but if this is true, no trace of them has been found. Naboo's two other moon's are called Ohma D'un and Tasia
Rothana is a planet near the edge of Wild Space. Rothana Heavy Engineering is headquartered here.
Several centuries before the Battle of Yavin, the inhabitants of Rutan decided to relieve the pressures of a growing population by colonizing its moon Senali. Senali later won its independence in a violent civil war, which left both worlds devastated. In an effort to promote peace, it was decided that the first-born child of the ruling house of each world would travel to the other world once they reached the age of seven, remaining there for nine years as they learned about the other world's culture. This arrangement worked well for many years, until the Rutanians sold information on the Senali to the Yuuzhan Vong, who then devastated both worlds.
After the battle had ended, a Jedi Knight named Johun Othone constructed a grand memorial to the fallen warriors called the Valley of the Jedi. It was said to harbour the spirits of the soldiers who fell. Despite this, the world was quickly forgotten, as the Galactic Republic turned inwards.
By the time of the Empire's reign, Ruusan was forgotten and used by independent spacers and merchants as a base of operations.
However, Kyle Katarn and Jan Ors rediscovered the Valley of the Jedi as they chased the Dark Jedi Jerec, who had killed Katarn's father in an attempt to find the Valley's location. Kyle chased Jerec's minions until he finally managed to gain a map to the Valley. Upon arriving he discovered that Jerec's minions, taken from the Imperial Remnant, had established a base as Jerec began taking the power for himself. Kyle fought through the Remnant defenses and finally met Jerec inside the Valley, dueling him and ultimately defeating the more powerful Dark Jedi.
When Kyle decided to retake his old title as Jedi Knight after swearing it off, he went to the Valley of the Jedi to regain his powers. This act led two Dark Jedi to discover the valley, and infused an army of Imperial troops with Force Powers. Luckily, the troops that weren't captured or killed by trained Jedi blew up when their flagship exploded.
Ryloth is the home planet of the race of the Twi'leks. Ryloth is a tidally locked planet, which means one side of the planet is constantly facing the sun. This side is called the Brightlands, and the other side is called the Nightlands. This results in the temperature on the day side being burning desert, and the night side the temperature is freezing cold. There is a habitable, twilight band around the planet where the day and night sides of the planet meet (just like Aurelia). The Twi'lek people live in a series of urban cities that are located in the habitable band of the planet. It has four continents and two oceans. The continents are Haxiang, Dengdian, Lienru and Tienhu; the oceans are the North Ocean and the South Ocean.
The Nightlands have an eerie beauty, strange crystal-like plants have evolved here, glowing from within, having to produce their own light from which to make energy due to the absence of natural light. These plants are a sight to behold, but many predators and criminals dwell in the nightlands and is often the site of podracing spectacles, the huge crystal trees often distract the pilots, causing them to crash and explode, much to the crowd's amusement. The Podracing cannot occur in the brightlands at all, but is found in the dark side of the habitable band of the planet.
Ryloth features a wide variety of landscapes, including ice caps, urban cities, forests and grasslands. The ice caps are inhabited by taun-tauns, and the forests are populated with ro-roos, moufs, phorples, krevols, billzem bugs, talcaris, scoolbs, tilacs, and froocs.
In the years before the fall of the Republic, Senator Orn Free Taa represented Ryloth. The Separatists led by Wat Tambor invaded Ryoth, the Republic led by Mace Windu, Obi Wan Kenobi, Anakin Skywalker and Ashoka Tano freed the planet of Sepratist occupation. Twi'leks have integrated windmills and turbines to power their homes and industries carved into the mountains. Ryloth was also the source of much ryll. After the Galactic Empire formed, Jabba the Hutt enslaved many female Twi'leks as dancers. Soon after, notorious crime lord Tyber Zann set his base of operations up in Ryloth.
Ryyk was the homeworld of the Neti. It was destroyed by a supernova a little bit before the Ancient Sith War nearly 4000 BBY killing almost all of the Neti. A Jedi Master known as Ood Bnar survived as he was on Ossus teaching Padawan learners.
Jedi Master T'ra Saa was a Neti
Saarn is a green world with vast grasslands.
Sacorria is a planet in the Sacorrian System, located on the fringe of the Corellian Sector. The planet is a peaceful one, yet is secretive. It is ruled by the Triad, a council of three members: a human, a Selonian, and a Drall. Sacorria has one moon, Sarcophagus, where the dead are buried. Tendra Risant, one of Lando Calrissian's suitors, is a native of Sacorria.
Saheelindeel is a planet located in the Tion Hegemony.
Saleucami appears during Order 66 in Star Wars: Episode III: Revenge of the Sith, and is a member world of the Confederacy of Independent Systems. Located in the Outer Rim Territories, Saleucami is a barren desert planet, but is littered with large, bulbous plants. With its strange bloated rocks, and oases with palm trees, this makes for an unusual world. The sky is usually clear, but the climate sometimes varies from ultra arid to quite humid.
In 6,100 BBY, it was colonized by Wroonians, and later followed by Humans, Weequay, Grans and Twi'leks. There are three kinds of plants and six kinds of animals on the planet. Approximately 32% of the planet's surface is covered in water.
Saleucami was a large battle site during the Outer Rim Sieges of the Clone Wars, and the Galactic Republic was triumphant and took control. Jedi Quinlan Vos was the General for the Republic on Saleucami during this battle, but moved with his clone troopers to Boz Pity. To finish the last small operations, some Republic troops were left behind with the Jedi Master Stass Allie.
When Supreme Chancellor Palpatine enacted Order 66, causing all clone soldiers to kill the Jedi, the instructions reached Saleucami quickly. Stass Allie was on her BARC speeder bike patrolling the terrain when the order came. Clone Commander Neyo, who was on another BARC speeder behind her, blasted the Jedi’s vehicle. The speeder exploded and crashed into a rock, killing Master Allie.
Saleucami was also a playable area in Star Wars Battlefront: Renegade Squadron

Sarapin is the major energy source for the Republic, serving many of the Core worlds. It is a planet of lava flows and volcanic rock, though not nearly as hot or desolate as Mustafar. During the Clone Wars, Confederacy General Sev'Rance Tann led an assault on Sarapin, killing the Twi'lek Jedi Jor Drakis and capturing the planet. However, Jedi Master Echuu Shen-Jon led his clone forces against Tann and recaptured the world for the Galactic Republic. During the fighting, the battles concentrated on the Mount Corvast Citadel, the largest and most strategic fortress on the planet. Later, after the rise of the Galactic Empire, Sarapin continued to provide energy to the major Imperial worlds. Sarapin produced 80% of the Core Worlds' power.
Saren is a grassland planet populated by tribes of creatures called "Mandalorian Warriors". Saren was revealed to the galaxy in 27 ABY when two young Jedi were fleeing from the Fall of Coruscant to hide. They were captured by the Mandalorians and brought to Mandalore himself (Boba Fett) to see if they should live. Mandalore found them worthy to live and allowed them to stay with the Mandalorians until they felt it necessary to leave.

Selab is a planet in the fictional Star Wars galaxy. It is located in the Hapes Consortium. The planet is completely covered with salt water. There are man-made docking bays located in different regions of the planet. Any ship may land on them and take a long elevator down to the bottom floor of the planet where many different cities are located. Some of major cities are Skiverrn, Killet, Alask, and Veven 3.
Selab has an estimated 4 billion population count. Many live in the city of Veven 3, because of its incredible beauty. However there is a high crime rate in the city. Many different species live on Selab, among them Humans, Ithorians, Rodians, Twi'Leks, and the Selkath. Selab's affiliation is with the Republic, but it has its own independent government system called the Selab Defense Organization, or SDO for short.
Hardly any battles ever come across Selab. It is so well protected by the ocean that no one has ever attempted to destroy the cities. The criminals lurking the cities in secrecy must steal weapons. Weapons are only issued to the Republic and the SDO. Any person who is not part of the Republic or SDO is stripped of their weapons before going down to the cities through the docking bays.
People call Selab Manaan's brother. These two planets are so alike in many different ways. Kolto mines are located on both planets. Many ocean species of Manaan are also located on Selab. As for the history of Selab, none has ever been major. Riots did break out every 100 years but always stopped within a matter of days.
Selab has no moons AND only one small sun. There are plants that grow on the bottom of the ocean called "trees of wisdom". They have been said to bear fruit that improves the knowledge of an elderly's mind. One tree was delivered to Leia Organa four years after the Battle of Endor at the Hapan Gift ceremony.
The word "selab" is probabaly related to Urdu word selab meaning flood.
Selonia is a planet in the Corellian system. It is primarily inhabited by Selonians, but large numbers of humans and Drall also inhabit the planet. Selonia is a humid planet that has relatively large oceans compared to other planets in the Corellian system. One notable geological feature on Selonia is the Cloudland Peaks.
Under the surface of Selonia is a planetary repulsor, which was constructed many millennia ago by unknown beings who used it to place the planet into its current orbit around the star Corell.
Sembla is the watery world in which the Vurks hail from. Sembla is famous for is its rare, beautiful, and sometimes deadly orchids.

It is mostly swamps, bogs and warm seas that are heated by volcanic ridges. The Vurks are an amphibious humanoid species. They are a nomadic people and like to separate themselves from the rest of the galaxy's troubles. It is known that at least one Vurk, Coleman Trebor (who was killed by Jango Fett after he tried to attack Count Dooku in the Battle of Geonosis) rose to the rank of Jedi master during the Jedi's twighlight years. Although the Vurk did their best to stay neutral during The Clone Wars, they eventually were forced to pick a side, which they decided on joining the Republic. After the purge Sembla was forgotten and went back to their usual ways in peace.

Sernpidal was nearly destroyed by this mega disaster; billions died from the shock of the moon's collision. This was the homeworld of the Sernpidalians.
Serroco is an Outer Rim world inhabited by humans, and once by a primitive near-human race known as the Stereb. The planet was the site of a major battle of the Mandalorian Wars in which the Mandalorians launched nuclear weapons from space to decimate the Republic bases as well as the cities of the Stereb, which Atton Rand describes as being "turned into glass craters." The Battle of Serroco was a major defeat for the Republic, as the majority of their ground forces were destroyed, their fleet decimated, and the planet was depopulated. After the war, a group of human veterans and refugees of the battle formed a gang in the refugee sector of Nar Shaddaa.
Shola is a volcanic planet, located in the Outer Rim, with a topography similar to that of Mustafar. Although largely unexplored, deep scans of the planet have revealed mining tunnel systems that lead almost to the planet's core and give rise to the theory that alien species that once existed here may have destroyed themselves in a massive cataclysm that left the planet in its current state.
Shola means flame in Urdu.

Five years after the Battle of Endor, the shipyards here were attacked by Grand Admiral Thrawn with his mole miners, stolen from Lando Calrissian's Nkllon mining operation. Through the use of Lando's knowledge of the mole miners' code, the New Republic was able to prevent Thrawn's theft of several star cruisers and frigates.
Sleheyron is a volcanic, industrial planet, with a major export of fuel. It was mentioned briefly in Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic, as the volcanic planet in the Star Map computer.

Subterrel is a planet that is known for its mining. In Attack of the Clones, Dexter Jettster proclaimed to Obi-Wan Kenobi that he last saw a Kamino saber dart in a mine of Subterrel. The name "Subterrel" most likely stems from the root word "subterranean", giving a clue to how the planet may be inhabited. The planet is an underground colony. The Kaminoans created clones to mine the depths of Subterrel, which is how the Kaminoan dart was found there. Subterrel is close to Polis Massa, as seen in Revenge of the Sith, and the inhabitants of both have regular dealings.
The surface of Sullust is volcanic and the atmosphere is made up of toxic gases, forcing the native Sullustan inhabitants to live in subterranean cities. The planet is the headquarters of the galaxy-spanning SoroSuub Corporation. In the time of the Old Republic, Podraces were found in various places on the planet.
The Rebel Alliance also used the system as a planning and staging point for their assault on the second Death Star, their location briefly being mentioned on-screen when Darth Vader asked the Emperor "What of the reports of the Rebel Fleet massing near Sullust?" in Return of the Jedi.
