A refinery was built by the Galactic Republic on the planet Quesh to mine the valuable chemical venenit queshaaga during the Cold War between the Republic and the Sith Empire. However, contaminants polluted the refining process, causing the processed chemical—more commonly known as Quesh venom—to eat through the refinery's vats and the floor of the building. The refinery was heavily damaged by the incident, leading the Republic to build a new refinery by the year 3642 BBY.

Notes and references
- Star Wars: The Old Republic's base game content about ten to twelve years after the signing of the Treaty of Coruscant, which is dated to 3653 BBY by Star Wars: The Old Republic Encyclopedia. The Prologue and Act I of the class storylines are assumed to take place in 3643 BBY, as they are roughly concurrent to each other and the Jedi Knight Act I storyline is dated to 3643 BBY by The Old Republic—The Lost Suns 2. Additionally, and Star Wars: The Old Republic Encyclopedia establish that the Battle of Ilum and the end of Act III for the class stories occur in 3640 BBY. Additionally, Act II for all classes, while featuring conflict between the two factions, occurs prior to the official collapse of the Treaty of Coruscant, which The Old Republic: Annihilation places in the middle of 3641 BBY. Taken together, this means that base game content spans from 3643 BBY to 3640 BBY, and the class storylines extend over this period, this article assumes that Act II takes place within 3642 BBY and the first half of 3641 BBY. places
