Af'El is the homeworld to the Defel. It is a high-gravity planet with no ozone layer and orbits the ultraviolet supergiant Ka'Dedus. Because of the lack of ozone, ultraviolet light passes freely to the surface, while other light wavelengths are blocked by the heavy gases in the planet's atmosphere. Thus, all lifeforms on Af'El can only see in ultraviolet light ranges, and are blind to other wavelengths of light.
see main article: Alderaan
Alderaan is the home of Princess Leia, Bail Organa and also, in 4000 BBY, Ulic Qel Droma, who fought in The Great Sith War. Its name is thought to be derived from that of the star Aldebaran.

Located in the Mid Rim, Ando is home to the aquatic Aqualish. Ando is an ocean world orbited by two moons. Ninety-five percent of the surface is covered in water, and what little land remains is complemented by Aqualish sailing ships used as mobile homes. Once the Aqualish discovered space travel, they explored Ando's sister world, though a series of inter-species wars left it decimated and barren.
Anoat is the name of both the star system and the planet. The star system lies between the Hoth and Bespin systems. The Millennium Falcon passes through the relatively deserted system while escaping from the Empire. The Anoat system consists of three inhospitable planets; Anoat, Gentes and Deyer. The three planets (including Gentes, home of the Ugnaughts) were abandoned sometime before the Galactic Civil War. Toxic waste infected Anoat and the terraformed planet Deyer, forcing the populations to move offworld.

Antar 4 is the fourth of six moons orbiting the gas giant Antar and is home to the Gotal race and has wild seasons and strange phases of light and dark caused by the parent planet eclipsing the sun.
A Core World , Anaxes, located in the Axum System, was known as the Defender of the Core when it was ruled by the Old Republic and later the Empire.
A core world, Ator is the homeworld of Cliegg Lars.
Axum is a temperate world located in the Axum System. In the millenium preceding the Battle of Yavin, Axum was the headquarters of the Azure Imperium, which was eventually absorbed by Coruscant's sphere of influence.
Bakura is a small, pastoral planet on the outskirts of known space, just outside the Moddell Sector. Bakura was the site of the truce between the Empire and the New Republic. Bakura was also the site of the Battle of Bakura against the reptilian Ssi-Ruuk which used the life essences of their human captives to power their war machines.
Bakura's only native sentient species is the Kurtzen, although its most populous sentient species is Human. They are also known for their repulsorlift industry though the people are quite distrustful of droids.
Bastion is the current capital world of the Imperial Remnant, and the Sector capital for the far flung Braxant Sector in the Outer Rim Territories. 'Bastion' was originally a codename for the Imperial capital as it was moved repeatedly as the Imperials' were forced to retreat again and again during the Galactic Civil War, but the original name for the planet now known as Bastion seems to have been largely forgotten.
It is a planet with varied climates, much like Earth in reality, and is said to be a fairly pleasant world, one of the few in Imperial space with amenities comparable to Coruscant. It is also, however, a heavily defended position, or 'fortress world' as the Empire called such positions in the late stages of the Galactic Civil War. In addition to planetary deflector shield generators, Bastion is the home port of the Braxant Sector Fleet , which includes such prestigious ships as the Star Destroyers Relentless, Ironhand, Tyrannic, and Obliterator. Also, at one point, an unnamed "Super Star Destroyer" (presumably Executor-class) was seen in orbit over Bastion, although it is unknown whether or not this mighty vessel was part of the Braxant Sector Fleet.
During the war with the Yuuzhan Vong, the Imperial forces defending Bastion were heavily damaged and forced to retreat. In the ensuing chaos, the capital city of Bastion, and the Empire itself, was burned to the ground by Yuuzhan Vong orbital strikes. Rebuilding efforts are still underway, and the loss of life was great, but when compared to the absolute devastation of worlds such as Coruscant and Ithor, Bastion got off easy.
Belkadan is the location of the outpost of ExGal 4.

Bilbringi is featured in Timothy Zahn's The Thrawn Trilogy. The system is rich with minerals, and more importantly, it is a site of a large shipyard. The Bilbringi Shipyards were equipped with a CGT array, which was the cause of a major battle during the Thrawn era.
The asteroids used by Thrawn to blockade Coruscant were equipped with cloaking devices here, and loaded into one of Thrawn's Star Destroyers. Because of the blockade, the New Republic was forced to acquire the CGT array to end the blockade.

See Mon Calamari.
see main article: Dagobah
After Darth Vader hunted down nearly all of the Jedi, Jedi Master Yoda hid in a swamp on Dagobah where a cave strong with the dark side of the Force hid him from detection by the Emperor. The massive array and diversity of life forms present on the planet also aided Yoda to avoid capture. In Star Wars Episode V: The Empire Strikes Back, Luke Skywalker is visited on the ice planet Hoth by the ghost of Ben Kenobi, who tells him to go seek Yoda on Dagobah to be trained as a Jedi.
see main article: Dantooine
Dantooine was mentioned only once in the Star Wars films. In A New Hope, Princess Leia tries to fool Grand Moff Tarkin into believing that the Rebel base is located there. Tarkin replies that Dantooine is "too remote" to use the Death Star on (the deciding factor here seems to be a political and social impact rather than military necessity).
Image : Dantooine (K.O.T.O.R. II: Sith Lords)
Da Soocha V
Dathomir is the planet on which Yoda's Jedi Academy Ship the Chu'unthor crashed. The planet was inhabited by force sensitive "witches", who were descendents of a Jedi Knight banished to the planet, and wild Rancors. This planet was introduced in the book
Denon is a planet with city growth covering the entire surface, similar to Coruscant. In terms of being an ecumenopolis, it is second to Coruscant.

During the Clone Wars, the Confederacy of Independent Systems spearheaded Durge's Lance , a co-ordinated and major campaign that lead to the capture of Duro. General Grievous was commander of the operation. The swift success of the campaign sent shockwaves throughout the Galactic Republic, and even neutral Corellia began to tighten its defences.

Falleen is home to species of the same name, and birthplace of Prince Xizor.
Fest is a snowy planet resembling Hoth, In a level of the N64 game Rogue Sqaudron, Fest is described as factory plane specialising in the production of AT-AT and AT-PT.
Fondor is a Mid Rim world famous for its orbital shipyards. Darth Vader's Executor-class Super Star Destroyer was constructed over Fondor. The planet became a target during the Yuuzhan Vong invasion, though a blast from Centerpoint Station destroyed a portion of the enemy fleet, saving Fondor at the cost of the Hapan war fleet also caught in the blast. Fondor continued to supply the Galactic Alliance with starships in the war.
Gamorr is the home of the Gamorreans.
Gand is the homeworld of the Gand; its atmosphere is primarily ammonia, making it lethal to most galactic lifeforms, and conversely, oxygen is just as deadly to Gand. Those Gand who leave their homeworld must wear an ammonia rebreather, and often find work as bounty hunters, due to their tradition of "findsmen."
Gentes is one of the inhospitable planets of the Anoat System.
see main article: Geonosis
The planet was located less than one parsec from Tatooine. In many ways the planet was similar to Tatooine, as in that it was a rocky, desert world. One notable difference was that the planet had large and dense rings in orbit. When Jango Fett was being chased by Obi-Wan Kenobi he went into the rings in order to lose Kenobi amongst the rocks that made up the belt.
Glee Anselm is the homeworld to the Nautolans.
see main article: Haruun Kal
Haruun Kal (Above the Clouds in the language of its natives), was the homeworld of the famed Jedi Master Mace Windu.
The first and 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.
Hok is a planet colonized by the Gran
Honoghr is home to the Noghri. A battle in orbit during the early time of the Galactic Empire caused planetwide ecological catastrophe when a starship 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.
see main article: Hoth
Hoth is the sixth planet of a remote 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 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.

Obi-Wan Kenobi was directed here 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 the source of the Clone Army's genetic code, one Jango Fett and his "son," Boba Fett.
Kashyyyk is the lush, tree-filled home planet of the Wookiees in the fictional Star Wars universe. Its ecology can be politely described as a "layered deathtrap," the planet's surface being covered with trees that are multiple miles high. The dangerous and hostile animals increase as you descend to the forest floor. The frame story of The Star Wars Holiday Special was set on this planet. The original scripts for Return of the Jedi called for the Death Star to be built in orbit around Kashyyyk by Wookiee slave labor. It wasn't until later drafts that the setting and characters were changed to Endor and Ewoks.
In the millennia before the rise of the Galactic Republic, Kashyyyk was a member world of the Infinite Empire. Its surface was terraformed by the Rakata, resulting in the abnormally large foliage which still covers the planet's surface in modern times.
The planet will finally appear in a feature film in 2005, when Star Wars Episode III: Revenge of the Sith airs.

This remote, forbidding planet, seething with dark side energy and echoing with the whispers of a thousand ghosts, was the burial world of the ancient Sith Empire, and has long been a sacred planet for the Sith Order. It is orbited by seven moons, and was unknown to the Old Republic before the rise of Naga Sadow. It was to Korriban that the ancient Dark Jedi fled after they were exiled by the Jedi Knights during the First Great Schism.
Korriban is a desolate world which, under the pall of Sith magic, has become more hellish and dangerous. The Sith Lords erected huge palaces and burial complexes to honor their fallen Dark Lords. Whenever a Dark Lord died, his mummified corpse was interred with great ceremony in the Valley of the Dark Lords. After the fall of the Sith Empire, the planet lost much of its prominence.
It was briefly resettled during the reign of Darth Malak, and was home to the settlement of Dreshdae and a Sith training academy.
However, with the death of the Dark Lord at the hands of Revan, the Sith Order collapsed into civil war and the world was once again abandoned.
Seven years after his death at the Battle of Endor, Emperor Palpatine, resurrected by the ancient Dark Lords as the insane embodiment of the dark side of the Force, visited Korriban for the last time in a vain attempt to stop the decay of his last clone body.
Kothlis is a terrestrial planet located in the Kothlis System It is a Bothan colony, only notable in Shadows of the Empire for being the point where the plans for the Second Death Star were recovered by a group of Rebel Commandos and heros, including Dash Rendar and Lando Calrissian.

Kuat is home to Kuat Drive Yards. The yards, used to build ships for both the Republic and later the Empire, circle the planet for miles.
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 a Imperial transfer port.
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. All systems accessible to the Imperial transfer port were classified.
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 Wars concluded.
A perverted graveyard world resonating with with the dark side of the Force, Malachor V is where the most terrible atrocity of the Mandalorian Wars took place. Malachor was a world taboo in Mandalorian culture, something the fallen Jedi Revan used against them in order to win the war. Revan amassed an enormous fleet (composed, not coincidentally, of Jedi and Republic soldiers whose loyalty to Revan was in question) at the planet, providing the Mandalorians with a target too good to pass up. Directing his forces from the heart of Malachor, an ancient Sith learning center called the Trayus Academy, Revan used a Mass Shadow Generator weapon developed by Zabrak engineer Bao-Dur to literally crush his enemies—Mandalorian, Jedi, and Republic soldier alike. Malachor was nearly wiped out as upon its surface countless beings died in a cataclysmic explosion that engulfed the planet. In the resulting destruction, almost the entire Mandalorian fleet was obliterated—as well as many Republic vessels. Left orbiting the planet was the wreckage of countless Mandalorian and Republic warships. All that remained on the surface was a desolate graveyard echoing with the deaths of thousands Jedi and Mandalorians, littered with destroyed ships and inhabited by vicious Storm Beasts . The survivors of the Battle of Malachor were few, but most were fated for no more than legendary status: Darth Revan, Carth Onasi, Canderous Ordo, Bao-Dur, Atton Rand, and, most telling of the atrocities of the battle, Darth Nihilus and a Jedi Exile.
The concentrated deaths of so many Jedi, Mandalorians, and Republic soldiers all at once sent a powerful shockwave throughout the Force, resulting in the Jedi Exile purposely severing all ties with the Force. More sinisterly, it was Malachor that had marked Revan's final descent into a darkness, a journey that would at last be completed when the former Jedi hero declared himself Dark Lord of the Sith. His fall sent his Jedi Master, Kreia, in search of answers. She found them at the Trayus Academy.
From the ashes of Malachor V arose three immensely powerful Sith Lords: Darth Sion, the Lord of pain; Darth Nihilus, the Lord of hunger; and Darth Traya, the Lord of betrayal. Together, they nearly brought about the complete and utter destruction of the Jedi Order.
Their plans were finally foiled, however, by the Jedi Exile. Nine years after the end of the Mandalorian Wars, Malachor V was at last completely destroyed, along with the Trayus Academy, Darth Sion, Darth Traya, and, for the moment, the future of the Sith.
Malastare is referred to several times in The Phantom Menace and Attack of the Clones, however, it has not been, and likely will not be, seen on screen. According to the Expanded Universe, Malastare is the homeworld of the quadruped Dug race. The Dugs were enslaved by the three-eyed Gran who first landed on and colonized Malastare in 8,000 BBY. There is podracing on Malastare, a pastime referred to by Qui-Gon Jinn in The Phantom Menace as "very fast, and very dangerous".
see main article: Manaan
Manaan was last seen in the 2003 videogame Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic. The planet is completely covered in water, except for Ahto City, a large city made by the Selkath, the native species on Manaan. It is the sole planet where kolto, a plant with natural healing properties, is found; kolto harvesting and shipping is the planet's central industry. The Selkath exploit this resource to ensure their safety from both the Sith Empire and the Galactic Republic, who are unable to attack the planet for fear of damaging the kolto. The planet features an oceanic swoop-racing course, several hotels and cantinas, both Sith and Republic embassies and an underwater research station guarded by a giant mutant shark. It was also the location of a Rakatan Star Map.

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.
During the Clone Wars, the world was attacked twice by the Confederacy 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. During the Yuuzhan Vong invasion of the Star Wars galaxy, Mon Calamari served as the capital of the Galactic Federation of Free Alliances after the Fall of Coruscant.
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, used by the Rebel in the Battle of Endor.

Praesitlyn is a planet in Sluis Sector
A craggy red world, Rattatak was located so far out in the Outer Rim, that the Republic had no knowledge of it. As an result, it was an lawless world ruled by brutal warlords who constantly battle for domination.

Ryloth is the home planet of the race of the Twi'lek. Because of the nature of Ryloth's orbit around its primary, one side of the planet always faces its star. This results in the temperature on the day side being very high, and the night side the temperature is very cold. There is a habitable band around the planet where the day and night sides of the planet meet. The Twi'lek people live in a series of caverns that are located in the habitable band of the planet.
In the years before the fall of the Republic, Ryloth was represented by Orn Free Taa . 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.

The Kaminoans created clones to mine the depths of Subterral, which is how the Kaminoan dart was found there.
The planet was briefly 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.

see main article: Tatooine
Tatooine is the home planet of the Skywalker family and the setting for much of the action in the saga's films (as well as several of the novels and other pieces of written fiction). The planet is not actually named in Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hope; according to Lucas he named it retrospectively after the movie's desert location, Tataouine (French spelling) in Tunisia. Tatooine's indigenous inhabitants are the pygmy and intelligent Jawas and the nomadic Tusken Raiders.
Tatooine is a desert world in a binary star system, inhabited by poor locals who mostly farm moisture for a living. The planet has been the site of repeated and failed attempts at colonization. During the prequel-era, it was ruled for a long period by the Hutts, being beyond the reach of the Galactic Republic. After the fall of the Republic, the Galactic Empire established a token presence on Tatooine, but the crime lord Jabba the Hutt still retained de facto control of the planet.
Tatooine is also home to much crime and activities that go along with it. This planet has many bars and places to gamble on things. One of the main attractions for gambling is Podracing which is where many competetors race extremely fast in hover craft type vehicles.

Thousands of years later, Count Dooku went to Thule to revive the Dark Reaper to attempt to destroy the Galactic Republic during the Clone Wars. A planetary shield enveloped the planet Thule, projected by the small moon Sivvi orbiting it.
The Battle of Thule is the last battle featured in the video game Star Wars: The Clone Wars. The battle was divided into four phases. At phase one, Anakin Skywalker and his strike force took out the planetary shield on the Thule Moon. At phase two, Obi-Wan Kenobi used the Low Altitude Assault Infantry Gunship to perform an aerial attack on significant strategic locations across planet Thule and destroyed the Communications Installation in order to cripple the Separatists' communications. At phase three, Mace Windu commanded the ground forces around Thule's capital city Kessia. Upon his arrival to Kessia, Cydon Prax destroyed Mace Windu's TX-150 Saber-class fighter tank.

Yuuzhan'tar was the original homeworld of the extragalactic Yuuzhan Vong which was destroyed in a devastating war. It is a jungle world with large oceans and a large asteroid belt around it. As a result, the Yuuzhan Vong species were homeless and were forced to travel through the interstellar void that separated the Yuuzhan Vong galaxy from the Star Wars galaxy in large worldships. Yuuzhan'tar is also the Yuuzhan Vong name for a Vongformed Coruscant.
Zonama Sekot is a sentient planet capable of travelling through space. It is a peaceful world known for its fast and organic starships. The living world was also a seed of the original homeworld of the extragalactic Yuuzhan Vong, which was destroyed in a devastating civil war. Zonama Sekot plays an important role in the bestselling New Jedi Order novels, for it harbours the long-forgotten secrets of the Yuuzhan Vong.
It first appeared in the bestselling novel Rogue Planet during the time of the Old Republic. Obi-Wan Kenobi and his apprentice Anakin Skywalker travelled to Zonama Sekot to purchase a starship and to find fellow Jedi Vergere. The Jedi eventually learnt that Zonama Sekot had been attacked by the Yuuzhan Vong after its inhabitants refused to give them one of their organic ships. The attack was stopped when Jedi knight Vergere offered herself to the Yuuzhan Vong in order that the living world not be harmed. Zonama Sekot was later attacked by Tarkin — a Republic commander at the time. In response, the living world unveiled its massive hyperspace system and fled into the Unknown Regions.
Years later, after the Yuuzhan Vong captured the capital world Coruscant, Luke Skywalker, Mara Jade Skywalker and Han Solo, along with several Jedi and the droids, travelled into the Unknown Regions to find Zonama Sekot. In The Final Prophecy, the Executor Nom Anor, disguised as Yu'shaa — the leader of the underground Jeedai heretics, attempts to destroy the living world. Later, in The Unifying Force, Zonama Sekot travels to Yuuzhan Vong-held Coruscant (renamed Yuuzhan'tar) where it gathers the Yuuzhan Vong willing to follow it and then journeys into the Unknown Regions.
