"A molecular dentist on Argo-6, performing a routine molar cracking, uncovered a tiny but complex farm in the mouth of one of her patients."
The Galactic Gossip[1]

Argo-6 was a terrestrial astronomical object, the climate of which featured several seasons. All members of a family residing on the celestial body maintained miniature farms in their mouths, which helped provide them with sustenance. The farm in the mouth of one member of the family contained fields of alfalfa, chicken coops, and a complex irrigation system.[1]

At some point, that individual visited a molecular dentist on Argo-6. While performing a routine molar cracking procedure, the dentist discovered the farm in her patient's mouth. Subsequently, comments of both the dentist and the patient on the discovery were included in an article in the August 8, 6094 issue of The Galactic Gossip publication.[1]

Behind the scenes[]

Argo-6 was mentioned in the 1993 book Monsters and Aliens from George Lucas, a publication that combines creature designs and photographs from various projects of George Lucas, creator of the Star Wars franchise, with original text by Bob Carrau.[1] Lucasfilm employee Leland Chee, who maintains the Holocron continuity database, has indicated that information contained in Monsters and Aliens from George Lucas is non-canonical[2] with respect to the Star Wars Legends continuity.[3] However, the 2009 reference book The Essential Atlas and its StarWars.com Online Companion built upon the mention of Argo-6 by introducing the Argo system, which was situated in the Tragan Cluster,[4] a part of the New Territories portion of[5] the Outer Rim Territories.[4]
