"Here we are marooned on a planet swimming in lava, forced to creep through the spookiest Imperial stronghold this side of Ziost, and he just has to wander off."
CR-8R, on Lieutenant Thom Hudd[src]

Ziost was a world[2] located in the galaxy's Outer Rim Territories[1] that was affiliated with the Sith. Along with the likes of Malachor, Jaguada, and Rhelg, it was quarantined during the time of the Galactic Republic.[2] Ziost was the original site of an ancient Sith ritual altar that was present in the Grand Republic Medical Facility on Coruscant[3] in 19 BBY.[source?] Much like the planets Moraband, Exegol, and Asog, Ziost maintained a fertile climate until the arrival of the Sith.[4]
