- "We're looking for spice, you gorm-worms, not some vape-chaser's memory box!"
- ―Devlin criticises Shrove's confiscation of the strongbox
Gorm-worms were a type of worm. After Commission for the Preservation of the New Order agent Paramiah Shrove confiscated a spacer's strongbox in the Chorlian sector because it contained the book that would become known as the Smuggler's Guide, Chief Imperial Inspector Hedge Devlin left a note on the box's intake form criticizing Shrove for confiscating objectionable literature instead of spice and calling the agent a gorm-worm.
Behind the scenesEdit
In the new Star Wars canon, gorm-worms were first mentioned on a supplemental item included in the deluxe edition of the 2018 reference book Star Wars: Smuggler's Guide, which was written by Daniel Wallace. The worms originated in the Star Wars Legends continuity, where they first appeared in the 1993 comic book Tales of the Jedi 3: The Saga of Nomi Sunrider, Part 1, which was written by Tom Veitch and illustrated by Janine Johnston.
