- "If there is a dark side to this galaxy, Socorro is on the hind side of it. Far beyond the notice of dominions large and faceless—where a man's word and the sweat of his brow are worth more than his scrip. This is truly a most splendid place to be."
- ―Kirr Cyrs
Located between Coyn and Tatooine and near Duunir, Iyred, Omman, Redcap, and the Nodgra system, Socorro was home to the ferocious Monnoks, as well as several nomadic groups: the Ibhann'I, Bharhulai, Ndowi, and Asilyr. It was also the homeworld of Lando Calrissian and Qu Rahn. Its deserts were composed of distinctive black sand. The name "Socorro" in Old Corellian meant "scorched earth."
Some of the locations on Socorro include the Asilyr Tribal Lands, the Bharhulai Tribal Lands, Cjaalysce'I the Doaba Badlands, the Ibhaan'I Tribal Lands, the Ndowi Tribal Lands, Norble, Madra, Rym Mountains, and Vakeyya.
Corellians colonized the planet in 3,000 BBY, though only four of their original six colony ships were believed to have survived. The Bharhulai tribe was a hostile group that dwelt in Socorro's dangerous northern polar region.
Socorro was the location of a Jedi academy where Jedi would train to become a Jedi Guardians. It was a favorite of Jedi Ace Crix Sunburris during the New Sith Wars. A thousand years later, Darth Sidious would use The Jedi Path: A Manual for Students of the Force to locate and destroy the academy and the Jedi who were stationed in it.
In 137 ABY, Socorro was the headquaters of the pirate Feeorin Rav. It was there that Cade Skywalker captured Jedi Hosk Trey'lis for Rav. Meanwhile, Darth Talon attacked the Imperial Mission temple on Socorro to drive Princess Marasiah Fel to her father or for him to come to her. Darth Talon killed the Imperial Knight Elke Vetter at the temple. Marasiah Fel was eventually rescued by Cade Skywalker.
