- "Beyond Tython, they settled first on Kalimahr, jewel of the Tython system, then Shikaakwa, the outlaw world, then on the forest planet Ska Gora, and on the moons of the Giants—Obri and Mawr—and even the outermost planet, cold Furies Gate."
- ―Ketu, of the non–Force-sensitive Tythans
Ska Gora was a verdant forest planet that was located within the Tython system of the galaxy's Deep Core region. More than thirty-six thousand years before the Battle of Yavin, the non–Force-sensitive settlers of the planet Tython colonized Ska Gora. By 25,793 BBY, some members of the Wookiee species had illegally settled Ska Gora's forests, however most of the planet's population lived in city-ships that floated above Ska Gora's surface.
Ska Gora was a planet with a single moon that was located within the Tython system of the galaxy's Deep Core region, at grid coordinates L-10. The planet occupied the eighth orbital position around its sun, Tythos. A temperate and verdant world, Ska Gora had its surface covered with huge regions of forests, swamps, and wetlands. It also featured an atmosphere with white-colored clouds and at least one mountainous region. Nearly all of the planet's population lived in city-ships that floated above Ska Gora's surface in order to protect the world's wilderness.
More than a millennium after the year 36,463 BBY, when the non–Force-sensitive settlers of Tython—the fifth planet of the Tython system—traveled to Tython's neighboring worlds, they colonized Ska Gora. By 25,793 BBY, some members of the Wookiee species had illegally settled Ska Gora's forests, however no one had challenged their claim.
Behind the scenesEdit
Ska Gora was first pictured in the entry for Tython in The Holonet feature of the official website for Star Wars: The Old Republic—a 2011 massively multiplayer online roleplaying game developed by BioWare. The planet was depicted in a schematic of the Tython system. Since its establishment in 2008, The Old Republic's website has gone through a number of changes, resulting in the removal of some of the features and images that were originally located there, including the aforementioned schematic. Ska Gora's name and additional information on it were provided in Star Wars: Dawn of the Jedi 0, a preview issue of the Star Wars: Dawn of the Jedi series of comic books. The issue was published on February 1, 2012, and was written by John Ostrander and penciled by Jan Duursema. The world was also mentioned in the first issue of the series, which was published on February 15 of the same year.
