- "Once, the hive was strong. We had just defeated the spider people in a great war, and brought the entire planet under the rule of the hive and our queen, who was wise and just. We believed that it was time for us to enter the galactic community."
Kosta was a female X'Ting, and the eldest member of the Hive Council on Ord Cestus by the time of the Clone Wars. Loyal to the hive, Kosta held contempt for Cestus Cybernetics and its puppet member of the Council, Caiza Quill. In 22 BBY, during the Mission to Ord Cestus, she asked Jedi Knight Obi-Wan Kenobi to recover a pair of X'Ting eggs that had been hidden underground during the Great Plague.
