- "I was recruited by a man called Tyranus on one of the moons of Bogden."
- ―Jango Fett
Orbited by 20 moons, Bogden suffered from the immense pressures of gravitational tides, and the planet's surface was literally pulled apart. The few who called Bogden home were forced to adapt to the shifting, seismic terrain, though most of Bogden's visitors were outlaws on the run, smugglers, or bounty hunters.
The planet once suffered a catastrophic war which lasted a thousand years. This interplanetary conflict for the control of the system devastated the orbit and surface of Bogden. The planet was now surrounded by a ring of debris of hundred of thousands destroyed starships and only ruins remained at the surface from the civilization that once inhabited the planet.
Eventually, the Bando Gora, led by Komari Vosa, used Bogden's moon Kohlma as a base of operations for their plans of galactic domination. Jango Fett was hired to track down Komari Vosa, and eventually discovered the war-ravaged moon. After the death of Vosa, Jango was recruited by Count Dooku to be the prime template for the Clone Army and the Bando Gora presumably collapsed. Shortly before his encounter with Komari Vosa, Jango defeated his rival, Montross, and left him to face a grueling end at the hands of the Bando Gora cultists.
Behind the scenes
In A Guide to the Star Wars Universe, Second Edition, Revised and Expanded, Bogden is erroneously called "Bodgen". The mistake was repeated again later until the correct spelling was confirmed in The Unseen Planets of Episode II.
Bogden and the Bogden sector appeared in the preview for Legacy of the Force: Sacrifice (published in Legacy of the Force: Exile) but they were cut from the final version and respectively replaced by Contruum and the Contruum system.
