M'dweshuu, also called M'dweshuu Nova, was a nova in Hutt Space. The Nikto homeworld of Kintan was in a neighboring system. Radiation from M'dweshuu caused a high mutation rate in the inhabitants of Kintan. Some Nikto, understanding the effect that M'dweshuu had on their species, formed sects such as the violent Cult of M'dweshuu to worship the star.
