Six months prior to the onset of the Clone Wars, Galactic Republic scientists stationed on Equanus's moon were testing a new superweapon. They miscalculated and hit Equanus's sun. The result was a ten light-minute-long solar flare that literally cooked the planet. The only Equani to survive were the few hundred who were off-world at the time. As there were not enough Equani left to populate a new world, the species eventually died out.
The Equani phrase çenõ-ka was used to express the feeling that one had already experienced a situation similar to the current one.
