Pasaana was a desert planet in the Expansion Region's Ombakond sector,[1] located in the Middian system.[2] It was the homeworld of the Aki-Aki species.[1]


The main economy of Pasaana is dust farming. Even though the Aki-Aki mostly reject all post-starflight technologies, this is a rare exception. The desert winds carry seeds spores blown from across the world. Specialized electro-sifters can pluck these from the gusts and drag them into the collection hoppers. These also contain moisture vaporators, allowing a grid of these to form an underground dust farm. The phedugrass and termania-spore make up a large part of the Aki-Aki diet. The arid conditions though, do mean lots of land has to be used to yield crops. Many farmers make use of skimmers to cross their farms.[1]

The Festival of the Ancestors is a legendary event, only held every 42 years that draws many people from afar. The Forbidden Valley is packed with 500,000 Aki-Aki and 5,000 off-worlders during this time. The lack of amenities, such as hotels, spaceports and restaurants, means that only the really desperate or really determined come here. Local chiefs hire mercenaries for security during this time. They scan the crowds, looking for other hired guns, or fugitives. The chiefs do not want to become involved in galactic affairs, but they do want to keep the celebration peaceful.

Under the surface of Pasaana's deserts are a number of caves that connect to freshwater aquifers. However, a number of predators could be found in the caves; the threat they posed kept the Aki-Aki from overexploiting the water supply.[1]


Sometime after the Battle of Endor, Luke Skywalker came here on a mission to discover more about the Sith and Jedi. Lando accompanied him and helped track down the ship of the assassin Ochi, who was searching for Sith relics. He then hid here in the treadable for many years.

In 35 ABY, after the Emperor revealed himself and the Final Order was announced, Rey, Finn, Poe Dameron, Chewbacca, C-3PO, and BB-8 came to Pasaana on the trail of the planet Exegol. During their visit the Festival of the Ancestors, they engaged First Order forces before being swallowed up by the sinking fields and ending up in the maze-like tunnels created by a vexis. The Resistance members would find the remains of Ochi of Bestoon, obtaining his dagger with the Sith inscriptions needed to locate the Emperor's wayfinder in the wreckage of the DS-2 Death Star on Kef Bir.[2]

Behind the scenes

Pasaana appears in the 2019 saga film Star Wars: Episode IX The Rise of Skywalker.[2] The planet was filed in the Wadi Rum desert in Jordan.[1]
