Venenit shadaaga, also known as Hutt venom, was a chemical that was a primary ingredient in many adrenal stimulants. During the Cold War between the Galactic Republic and the Sith Empire, the scientist Bardian Aelto discovered an almost identical chemical on the planet Quesh which was later named venenit queshaaga.
Behind the scenes
Venenit shadaaga was first mentioned in Quesh's entry on the Holonet section of the official site for Star Wars: The Old Republic, a video game released by BioWare and LucasArts in 2011. It was later mentioned in several Codex entries in the game, as well as the Star Wars: The Old Republic Explorer's Guide, which reprinted the Holonet summary on Quesh; however, the Explorer's Guide mistakenly referred to it as queshaaga.
