The Kuna's Eye system was a star system in the Outer Rim Territories' Zuma sector, within the Inner Zuma Region and the Moddell subsector. It was less than 1,000 light-years above the galactic plane—a trait that made it a part of the thin disk, which spanned 1,000 light-years vertically on both sides of the plane. The system contained the young blue giant Kuna's Eye and a protoplanetary disk, which was rich in minerals, metals, and alloys. As of 43 ABY, prospectors frequented the system, with a cobbled-together space station and shadowport, the Mote, serving their needs.

Description[]

The Kuna's Eye system was located in the Outer Rim Territories,[1] west of the region known as the Western Reaches and southeast of Wild Space. The system was located within the Inner Zuma Region[2] of the Zuma sector,[1] inside the Moddell subsector. Its distance from the horizontal galactic plane was less than 1,000 light-years, which placed it within the thin disk, a tract of space whose vertical distance from the plane was no more than 1,000 light-years.[2]

The system's primary star was Kuna's Eye, a blue giant that, along with the other Kuna worlds, formed part of the Kuna constellation visible from the planet Maya Kovel.[2]

History[]

Members of two sentient species, the Tulgah and the Jindas, attempted to colonize the system from[4] the factory world[2] Eriadu circa 130 BBY, but their starship, the Free Enterprise, crashed on the forested moon Endor instead.[4]

The sun of the system, Kuna's Eye, was considered to be young as of 43 ABY[2] and was orbited by a protoplanetary disk of dust and rock[3] that was rich in minerals,[2] metals, and alloys. At the edge of the disk was the Mote, a cobbled-together space station[3] and shadowport dedicated to fulfilling the needs of the prospectors that were attracted to the system.[2] The station hosted 1,000 individuals of various species.[3]

Behind the scenes[]

The first mention of the Kuna's Eye system was in the article "Endor and the Moddell Sector"—written by Craig Robert Carey, Daniel Wallace, and Jason Fry—in Star Wars Gamer 9,[3] released on February 22, 2002.[5] The 2009 reference book The Essential Atlas placed the system in grid square H-16.[2]
