September 7 (Week 37), 2015Mulako Corporation Primordial Water Quarry and VoroosEdit

The Mulako Corporation Primordial Water Quarry, also known as Mulako Corporation Quarry, Mulako Corporation comet, MC Quarry, and Mulako quarry, was a comet that orbited its star once every hundred years. For the greater part of this period, the Mulako Corporation mined ice on the comet's surface, extracting pure water from it and selling it to gourmets. When the Mulako Corporation Quarry approached its perihelion and became habitable as a result, the company opened luxurious resorts on the comet for a few months, and tourists visited the warm and humid facilities, with several tourist attractions being available both inside and on the surface.

In the year 12 ABY, Human Jedi Luke Skywalker and Callista Ming visited the Mulako Corporation Quarry in hopes of restoring Ming's lost connection to the Force. The Jedi stayed for a while at one of the resort facilities, where they were discreetly observed by the Hutt Randa Besadii Diori before leaving the comet to continue their efforts elsewhere.

This week's other Good article: Voroos

Voroos were a non-sentient, reptilian species of stationary predator that were found throughout the galaxy. Due to a lack of limbs, they could not chase prey, instead relying on camouflage and the use of their strong tongues to capture prey and pull it into their large mouths. Zoologists believed that the palak species of beetles were involved in voroos' reproduction, but the subject was poorly understood. (Read more…)

This week's other Good article: Porg

Porg Headshot
Porg was a Trandoshan male bounty hunter who was active during the time of the New Republic. In 5 ABY, the droid information broker 8t88 hired Porg as an extra hand to kill the former Rebel Alliance agent Kyle Katarn if Katarn managed to escape death at the hands of other hirelings at the Rimmer's Rest cantina, located on the moon Nar Shaddaa. Indeed, Katarn evaded 8t88's hirelings in the bar and, after blowing off one of 8t88's arms, ran into the sewers, where he encountered Porg and an Aqualish bounty hunter. Porg attacked Katarn with a vibro-ax but was quickly incapacitated.

In retaliation and with the help of Darth Vader, who also sought Xizor's destruction, Hoff ambushed the Black Sun leader inside a protected corridor on the planet Coruscant. Although larger and more powerfully built, the enraged Hoff could not kill Xizor, who easily defeated the would-be assassin and snapped his neck. Xizor suspected Vader's hand in the ambush but never learned who had granted Hoff access to the secure corridor. (Read more…)
