This article is about Skako, the homeworld of the Skakoans. You may be looking for Skako Minor, the homeworld of the Poletecs that was also known as "Skako".

Skako was a planet located in the galaxy's Core Worlds that was the homeworld of the Skakoan species. Wat Tambor, the foreman of the Techno Union during the final years of the Galactic Republic, was a male Skakoan from this world.


Located in the galaxy's Core Worlds, in grid square L-9 on the Standard Galactic Grid, the planet Skako sat between Brentaal and Fedalle on the Hydian Way hyperspace route.[1] It had unique atmospheric pressure and was the homeworld of eight-eyed, gasbag-headed vine walkers known as octuptarras.[2]


During the Clone Wars, Skako was aligned with the Confederacy of Independent Systems before being captured by Galactic Republic forces.[3]


Skako was also the homeworld of the sentient Skakoan species, and its atmospheric pressure required them to wear pressure suits to survive off-world; otherwise, they would explode when exposed to standard oxygen-based atmospheres. Wat Tambor, the foreman of the Techno Union during the final years of the Republic, was a male Skakoan from this world.[2]

Behind the scenesEdit

Skako was first mentioned in the new Star Wars canon in a featurette[4] included in Star Wars: The Clone Wars The Complete Season One, a box set available on Blu-ray or DVD that included the entire first season of the canon animated series Star Wars: The Clone Wars[5] that was released on November 3, 2009.[6] It was originally created for Cloak of Deception, a Star Wars Legends novel written by James Luceno[7] that was released on May 29, 2001.[8]
