Mygeeto was a frigid, crystalline planet located in the galaxy's Outer Rim Territories that was the homeworld of the Lurmen species. 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 early rebellion against the Galactic Empire, Mygeeto was the site of a battle between the Empire and the Alliance to Restore the Republic's Sixty-First Mobile Infantry. During the Galactic Civil War, the planet's Imperial forces were attacked by the Plasma Devils.
Mygeeto was located in the galaxy's Outer Rim Territories, in grid square K-5 on the Standard Galactic Grid, in the same sector as the Anthan system and Son-tuul. Hostile and exotic, it was a frigid, snow-covered planet marked by jagged crystalline landscapes. Kyber crystals could be found on Mygeeto.
- "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
Controlled by the InterGalactic Banking Clan and the Confederacy of Independent Systems, Cuata did research on Mygeeto before the Clone Wars placed it in danger in the year 21 BBY, which led Tee Watt Kaa's tribe of Lurmen to abandon their homeworld to escape the bloodshed and violence.
After the Clone Wars, Mygeeto fell under the control of the Galactic Empire. At some point before the Battle of the Tower, the Rebel Alliance's Sixty-First Mobile Infantry fought in a battle on the world. During the Galactic Civil War, after the Battle of Yavin, Imperial forces on Mygeeto came under attack by the Plasma Devils, a Rebel Alliance Starfighter Corps squadron.
Behind the scenes
Originally created for the 2005 film Star Wars: Episode III Revenge of the Sith, Mygeeto was one of the first planets envisioned for a proposed montage of battlefronts and Separatist strongholds that was to start Revenge of the Sith in early drafts, which turned into the Order 66 sequence as the storyline evolved. 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, 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, as well as that of Mandalore.
