Usk was a planet that was located within the Usk system of the galaxy's Hutt Space region, near The Cairns part of that region, and lay on the hyperlane called The Dead Road, which connected it to the worlds of Elgit and Saqqar. A smaller hyperlane linked the planet to the world of Moralan. Usk was the homeworld of a sentient species that was enslaved at some point in their history, however later the species became extinct, leaving their home planet a derelict world.
Behind the scenes
- "And then there were names I thought sounded strange and vaguely foreboding, such as Saqqar and Usk."
- ―Jason Fry
The planet of Usk was first mentioned in The Essential Atlas, a 2009 reference book co-authored by Jason Fry and Daniel Wallace, which placed the planet in grid square T-10. In a 2009 article published on Suvudu.com, Fry noted that the name of Usk sounded unusual and somewhat foreboding to him.
