Near Pando was an emerging trade world[2] that was located within the Near Pando system in Hutt Space,[1] a region of the galaxy controlled by the Hutt species.[2] The planet lay on the hyperlane called the Pando Spur that connected it to the world of Far Pando.[2] Near Pando was the site of ancient and mysterious ruins known as the Malabar Construct.[2]

Behind the scenesEdit

Near Pando was first mentioned in The Essential Atlas, a 2009 reference book co-authored by Jason Fry and Daniel Wallace, which placed the planet in grid square S-14.[2] The planet was also going to be mentioned in The Big Switch, a young readers book written by Ryder Windham, however, that book was postponed and eventually cancelled.[3][4]

The Big SwitchEdit

Approximately four thousand years before the Battle of Yavin, a portrait bust of the Hutt Bogga came to rest on Near Pando. Four millennia later, the bust was excavated from the ruins on the planet.[3]
