"A parasite. Native to Ringo Vinda. Probably in the canteen of water they both shared. It did cause the inhibitors to decay, once the parasite had taken hold."
Supreme Chancellor Sheev Palpatine's "official" explanation of the erratic behaviors of CT-5555 and CT-5385[src]

Ringo Vinda was a planet located in the galaxy's Mid Rim[1] encircled by a massive[2] civilian graving dock[4] and controlled by the Galactic Republic. It was captured by the Confederacy of Independent Systems during the Clone Wars, which resulted in an extended campaign to retake the planet[3] in the year 19 BBY.[5] However, Republic forces withdrew from Ringo Vinda when clone trooper CT-5385 executed Jedi Master Tiplar when Protocol 66 was accidentally triggered in his inhibitor chip, leaving the world under Separatist control.[2] Officially, CT-5385's mental instability was said to be caused by a parasitic infection native to Ringo Vinda that caused his inhibitor to decay and a vaccine was prepared to inoculate the other clones and prevent similar incidents in the future, hiding the true nature of Order 66.[6]

After the war, Ringo Vinda fell under the control of the Galactic Empire and its space station was converted into an enormous construction facility that churned out Imperial-class Star Destroyers for the Imperial Navy.[4]

Behind the scenesEdit

"Battle for Ringo Vinda! Republic forces are locked in heated combat with the droid armada on a massive space station that encircles an entire planet."
―Ringo Vinda was identified in "The Unknown"'s opening news reel[src]

Ringo Vinda first appeared in "The Unknown,"[2] the first episode of the canon animated series Star Wars: The Clone Wars' sixth and final season,[7] which originally aired in Germany on February 15, 2014.[8][9] While unidentified in the episode itself, it was named in the opening news reel.[2] The planet's design was derived from early concept art[10] of Cato Neimoidia[11] developed by Ryan Church during the concept design phase of Star Wars: Episode III Revenge of the Sith.[10]
