- "Greetings, galactic explorers! You have made a wise choice in selecting this guide for your journey. Books are rare across the galaxy, and this one is rarer still. It combines the wisdom and experience of pirate and princess, merchant and mercenary, Darth and droid in one extraordinary volume of planetary lore. As my sweet mother used it say, it's wise to know what you don't know."
- ―Hondo Ohnaka, in the Galactic Explorer's Guide
The Galactic Explorer's Guide was a travel guide written by the Weequay pirate Hondo Ohnaka, with additional commentary by the his RA-7 protocol droid DK-RA-43. Published after the 34 ABY destruction of Starkiller Base, the book compiled information on the history, wildlife, inhabitants, and landmarks of several planets and moons in the galaxy.
