Quooria was a terrestrial astronomical object[3] located in the Quooria system, a part of the Farstey sector in the Trans-Hydian portion of the Expansion Region.[1] It was the homeworld of[5] the Quoorian marshsucker, a species of creature similar to, but much more deadlier than mosquitos.[4] In addition, creatures that were related to Quoorian marshsuckers eventually went extinct on Quooria and became preserved in the sap of the celestial body's trees.[3]

When an ancient disease resurfaced[3] at some point by 3637 BBY,[6] the future commander of the Eternal Alliance[7] sent a companion to Quooria to collect samples from the preserved species, as there existed a possibility that the creatures held the key to combating the disease.[3]

Behind the scenes[]

Quooria was introduced in Shadow of Revan,[3] a 2014 expansion for Star Wars: The Old Republic,[8] a 2011 massively multiplayer online roleplaying game developed by BioWare.[9] The 2009 reference book The Essential Atlas placed the Quooria system, and therefore the celestial body Quooria, in grid square O-8.[2]

The Essential Atlas also places the portion of the Expansion Region north of the Perlemian within the Trans-Hydian.

SWTOR mini.png Forums: Dear Story Team, What Year Are We Currently In? on The Old Republic's official website (backup link) — According to Star Wars: The Old Republic's lead designer, Charles Boyd, the majority of the events of the digital expansion Shadow of Revan take place in approximately 3637 BBY. The Crew Skill mission "Yesterday Today" is part of the Shadow of Revan expansion and therefore also takes place around that year.
