Af'El is the homeworld to the Defel. It is a high-gravity planet with no ozone layer and orbits the ultraviolet supergiant Ka'Dedus. Because of the lack of ozone, ultraviolet light passes freely to the surface, while other light wavelengths are blocked by the heavy gases in the planet's atmosphere. Thus, all lifeforms on Af'El can only see in ultraviolet light ranges, and are blind to other wavelengths of light.

Anoat is the name of both the star system and the planet. The star system lies between the Hoth and Bespin systems. The Millennium Falcon passes through the relatively deserted system while escaping from the Empire. The Anoat system consists of three inhospitable planets; Anoat, Gentes and Deyer. The three planets (including Gentes, home of the Ugnaughts) were abandoned sometime before the Galactic Civil War. Toxic waste infected Anoat and the terraformed planet Deyer, forcing the populations to move offworld.

The first and only habitable world in the Al'har system, Haruun Kal appeared to be an oceanic world from space. However this "ocean" was in fact a sea of toxic gases brought to the surface by volcanic activity, and broken by mountains and plateaus. Only the landmasses which reached into the atmosphere could support life, and thus it was high in these mountains and plateaus where native life evolved.

Obi-Wan Kenobi was directed here to follow a lead on the whereabouts of Senator Amidala's would-be assassin through a single poison dart.

Kashyyyk is the lush, tree-filled home planet of the Wookiees in the fictional Star Wars universe. Its ecology can be politely described as a "layered deathtrap", the planet's surface being covered with trees that are multiple miles high. The dangerous and hostile animals increase as you descend to the forest floor. The frame story of The Star Wars Holiday Special was set on this planet. The original scripts for Return of the Jedi called for the Death Star to be built in orbit around Kashyyyk by Wookiee slave labor. It wasn't until later drafts that the setting and characters were changed to Endor and Ewoks.

Kashyyyk's runaway plant growth is the result of a malfunctioning terraforming machine left by the Rakata.

The planet will finally appear in a feature film in 2005, when Star Wars Episode III: Revenge of the Sith airs.
