Geonosians were a winged, insectoid species native to the planet Geonosis. Geonosians created nests in large, spire-like colonies on their homeworld.[2] Geonosians were a caste-based species, and were led by a queen. The queen laid eggs for the hive, and provided orders to the public leaders of Geonosis.[4] Queen Karina the Great was able to control sentient beings, including her own Geonosians, with brain worms.[5]

During the reign of Archduke Poggle the Lesser, Geonosis became a member of the Confederacy of Independent Systems. The Separatists used the Geonosians to create the Separatist Droid Army. This eventually led to a large battle between the Galactic Republic and the Separatists on Geonosis. The Geonosians were the ones responsible for creating the plans for the Death Star.[2][6] Following the Clone Wars, their homeworld was sterilized by the Galactic Empire, nearly exterminating the native Geonosian population.[3]

Behind the scenesEdit

A termite infestation in George Lucas' house inspired the Geonosians.[source?] The sounds of Geonosians were created from mixed recordings of mating penguins and flying foxes in Australia.[7]
