The Goroth system was one of a dozen systems within the Trans-Nebular Zone of the Trans-Nebular sector. As the Vestor Pulsar made this whole area a hyperspace "dead zone", travelling was rather difficult. The system could usually be reached with two- or three-leg jumps. From the Perlemian Trade Route, Goroth could be reach with a three-leg route within twelve days or with a faster, more dangerous two-leg jump within ten days. The closest system was the Baylin Cluster, 14 hours away, while the sector capital, Milarian, was 22 hours away.
The system had two suns: Goroth Alpha, a standard, main-sequence red-orange star, most commonly referred to as "the sun" or "K'Len" by the Gorothites. The second star was Goroth Beta, a brown dwarf at the most outward orbital position. The system had four planets, one of them, Goroth Prime having spawned sentient life.
The only inhabited planet with sentient life in the system orbiting at 7.1 light minutes, it was once a pleasant terrestrial world with three moons. The native Gorothites evolved relatively late and became members of the Old Republic around 7,500 BBY. Goroth was devastated during the Corellian/Aqualish war around 4000 BBY when the Gorothites tried to play both sides against each other. Believed to be a volcanic wasteland for the next few millennia, the world was rediscovered during the reign of the Galactic Empire.
A gas giant with a perihelion orbit of 40.7 light minutes, Deneva had a low density and a small, solid core. The planet was inhabited by non-intelligent gasbag-like creatures which grazed the atmosphere's organic compounds. Deneva had a strong magnetic field that, in conjunction with it's closest moon, formed a dangerous ionic storm.
The other of the system's gas giants, Denbalen, was similar to Deneva in appearance, but had a higher density and no magnetic fields. It orbited the sun at 67.2 light minutes. Although smaller than its sister world, Denbalen had a larger core, almost the size of Goroth Prime. One of its moons, P'Check contained the ruins of an extinct species.
Goroth Beta was the most outward orbital body and a gas giant that never ignited into a star. Orbiting at 340.3 light minutes, it had some nuclear activity but was considered lifeless.
