Behind the scenesEdit
Nebula Forso was first introduced in a segment named "The Seminar Participants," written by Bob Carrau for the 1993 book Monsters and Aliens from George Lucas, a publication that combines creature designs and photographs from various projects of George Lucas, creator of the Star Wars franchise, with original text by Carrau. Lucasfilm employee Leland Chee, who maintains the Holocron continuity database, has indicated that information contained in the book is non-canonical.
Sixteen years later, the nebula was included in The Essential Atlas, a third-generation Essential Guide written by Jason Fry and Daniel Wallace, and published in August 2009. The book placed it in the Outer Rim Territories, within the Meram sector at the grid coordinates P-4. Nebula Forso was later added to Star Wars: The Essential Atlas Online Companion, a web-exclusive series of articles intended to serve as dynamic supplement for The Essential Atlas.
