"A parasite. Native to Ringo Vinda. Probably in the canteen of water they both shared. It did cause the inhibitors to decay, once the parasite had taken hold."
Supreme Chancellor Palpatine's "official" explanation of the erratic behaviors of CT-5555 and CT-5385[src]

Ringo Vinda was a planet[2] located in the Ringo Vinda system, within the Eucer sector of the galaxy's Mid Rim,[1] that was encircled by a massive space station.[2] By 20 BBY, the third year of the Clone Wars,[3] Ringo Vinda space station[4] was controlled by Admiral Trench of the Confederacy of Independent Systems.[2] During the Battle of Ringo Vinda,[3] clone trooper CT-5385 executed Jedi Master Tiplar when Protocol 66 was accidentally triggered in his inhibitor chip, forcing the Galactic Republic to withdraw and leave the world under Separatist control.[2] Officially, CT-5385's mental instability was said to be caused by a parasitic infection native to Ringo Vinda that caused his inhibitor to decay and a vaccine was prepared to inoculate the other clones and prevent similar incidents in the future, hiding the true nature of Order 66.[5]

Behind the scenes

"Battle for Ringo Vinda! Republic forces are locked in heated combat with the droid armada on a massive space station that encircles an entire planet."
―Ringo Vinda was identified in "The Unknown"'s opening news reel[src]

Ringo Vinda first appeared in "The Unknown," the first episode of the animated series Star Wars: The Clone Wars' sixth and final season,[2] which originally aired on February 15, 2014.[6] While unidentified in the episode itself, it was named in the opening news reel.[2] The planet's design was derived from early concept art[7] of Cato Neimoidia[8] developed by Ryan Church during the concept design phase of Star Wars: Episode III Revenge of the Sith.[7] The Essential Atlas Online Companion placed the Ringo Vinda system, and therefore Ringo Vinda itself, in grid square R-7.[1]

The design that inspired Ringo Vinda was previously repurposed in Executor Executes, an in-universe painting by Rian Church featured in Celestia Galactica Photografica, which was collected in Star Wars: Visionaries.[9]
