"Galen, you know where these came from."
"Mygeeto, perhaps."
Lyra and Galen Erso discuss the origins of a case of kyber crystals[8]

Mygeeto was a frigid, crystalline planet located in the Albarrio sector's Mygeeto system of the Outer Rim Territories, and was the homeworld of the Lurmen species. The planet was initially discovered almost 7,000 years before the Battle of Yavin, and possession of the planet became heavily contested after its discovery. An InterGalactic Banking Clan stronghold, it was aligned with the Confederacy of Independent Systems during the Clone Wars. It was the site of the Third Battle of Mygeeto, and the Galactic Republic assaulted Mygeeto during the Outer Rim Sieges. During the Imperial Era against the Galactic Empire, Mygeeto was the site of a number of battles featuring the Alliance to Restore the Republic's 61st Mobile Infantry and Riot Squadron. During the Galactic Civil War, the planet's Imperial forces were attacked by the Plasma Devils.


Mygeeto was the third planet in the system of the same name in the Outer Rim Territories' Albarrio sector,[2] located in grid K-5 on the Standard Galactic Grid.[3] Hostile and exotic,[9] it was a frigid,[1] snow-covered planet[10] marked by jagged crystalline landscapes.[1] Artesian, nova, relacite,[2] and kyber crystals could be found on Mygeeto.[8]


Republic Era[]

The Clone Wars begin[]

"To a degree. I'm more interested in what Cuata was doing on Mygeeto and Christophsis before the war placed them in danger."
―Galen Erso, to Wilhuff Tarkin[8]

Controlled by the InterGalactic Banking Clan and the Confederacy of Independent Systems,[1] Cuata did research on Mygeeto before the Clone Wars placed it in danger[8] in the year 21 BBY,[10] which led Tee Watt Kaa's tribe of Lurmen to abandon their homeworld to escape the bloodshed and violence.[11] The Republic began what would come to be a three-year campaign on the world.[12]

Third Battle of Mygeeto[]

The Third Battle of Mygeeto.

In 19 BBY, during the Clone Wars, a conflict erupted on Mygeeto between the CIS and the Galactic Republic known as the Third Battle of Mygeeto. The Separatist General known as Grievous brought a group from the Separatist Droid Army to Mygeeto. He was joined by Separatist Colonel Coburn Sear, who had narrowly escaped capture by the Republic on Kardoa. Jedi General Depa Billaba, her padawan Caleb Dume and their battalion of Republic clone troopers were sent to Mygeeto to confront the Separatist presence[13]

They were ordered to clear the Southern Mesas of B1-series battle droids. Clone troopers Remo, Soot, Big-Mouth, Kaylon, and Mixx each took squads of clone troopers through the mesas. Billaba and Dume then went with clone trooper CT-1157, nicknamed "Stance". Clone Commander CC-10/994, nicknamed "Grey", and Clone Captain Styles then took the rest of the men. Despite numerous battle droids, the battalion continued with their mission.[14]

Republic forces are surrounded by Separatist droids.

Soon, however, Billaba, Dume, Styles, and Stance were cut off by Separatist forces. Billaba then contacted Commander Grey, stating they needed to be evacuated. Grey informed them they would have to hold out for about four minutes, an amount of time Caleb Dume did not think they had. They were soon surrounded. However, Fang-class starfighters of Skull Squadron, lead by Skull Leader Fenn Rau were able to shoot the battle droids attacking them. The Republic forces were then evacuated by LAAT/i's.[14]

While most of the battalion was still out fighting, Billaba's team returned to their base, mesa camp six. The camp was then suddenly attacked by Grievous, Coburn Sear and their battle droids. Stance was then killed by Sear with his electro sword. Billaba then attacked Grievous, however, she only managed to cut off the cyborg's hand before she was significantly injured with one of his lightsabers.[5]

Dume then battled Coburn Sear. During their fight, Dume managed to damage Sear's flamethrower. Sear then tried to use his flamethrower against Caleb, however, the flamethrower blew up. Sear then fell off a cliff to his death. The rest of the battalion then arrived, and Grey found Caleb crying next to Stance's corpse. The clones then fired at Grievous, who was then forced to retreat.[5]

Republic reinforcements the arrived, which included a Venator-class Star Destroyer, and the battle was over. Soon after the battle, a funeral was held for Stance.[5]

Fourth Battle of Mygeeto[]

The 21st Nova Corps on Mygeeto.

Towards the end of the Clone Wars, a Fourth Battle of Mygeeto happened a short time after the third battle. At one point, Jedi General Ki-Adi-Mundi was leading his troops, the 21st Nova Corps, including at least two UT-AT's, across a bridge spanning two city blocks when Order 66, a contingency order that would force all clone troopers to kill their Jedi generals, was given by Supreme Chancellor Sheev Palpatine.[15][16]

Clone Marshal Commander CC-1138, nicknamed "Bacara", and other clones opened fire on Mundi. The Jedi was able to deflect several shots before he was killed by his own men.[15] After the order, Bacara continued to lead his men to take out the last of the Separatist remnants.[16]

After the planet Bracca was secured, the 13th Battalion, led by Jedi General Jaro Tapal and his Padawan Cal Kestis, would leave for Mygeeto to help Mundi and his forces win the battle. However, the issuance of Order 66 impeded their plan, as the Venator-class Star Destroyer Albedo Brave was destroyed in Tapal and Kestis's clash with the clones, resulting in the death of the entire battalion and Tapal.[17]

Age of the Empire[]

After the Clone Wars, Mygeeto fell under the control of the Galactic Empire[7] but remained a base of the Banking Clan. During the trade wars between the Banking Clan and Hutt Clan, crime lord Jabba Desilijic Tiure hired Rodian bounty hunter Greedo for a mission to Mygeeto. He was tasked with extracting a Givin codebreaker, but Greedo failed when the codebreaker fell to death. Greedo escaped Mygeeto with Ki-Adi-Mundi's lightsaber, which had been stored in Vice Chairman Anolo's office and was purchased by collector Dok-Ondar upon Greedo's return to Tatooine.[18]

At some point before the Battle of the Tower, the Rebel Alliance's 61st Mobile Infantry fought in a number battles on the world,[19] with the Alliance's Riot Squadron also being present, earning their name in the wake of the fighting.[20] During the Galactic Civil War, after the Battle of Yavin, Imperial forces on Mygeeto came under attack by the Plasma Devils,[7] a Rebel Alliance Starfighter Corps squadron.[21]


Lurmen were native to Mygeeto

Mygeeto was the homeworld of the sentient Lurmen species,[1] who inhabited the planet's natural crystal towers before they were reduced to slave status by the Banking Clan.[6]

Behind the scenes[]

Originally created for the 2005 film Star Wars: Episode III Revenge of the Sith,[15] Mygeeto was one of the first planets envisioned for a proposed montage[22] of battlefronts and Separatist strongholds[23] that was to start Revenge of the Sith in early drafts,[22] which turned into the Order 66 sequence as the storyline evolved.[23] It was envisioned as a Banking Clan world and the technological designs of the world were inspired by the thin elegance of the Muun species. Concept art showcased "fresnel" type designs, with layered crystalline filaments suggesting old-style electronics. The first paintings by Erik Tiemens emphasized a turquoise color palette, giving it a self-illuminated brightness,[22] as well as prominent hexagonal facets that marked the planet's surface. These concepts resurfaced during the development of the Star Wars: The Clone Wars animated series and heavily inspired the look of the planet Christophsis,[23] as well as that of Mandalore.[24]
