Hello and welcome to the Sandcrawler Blog Planet Series.
The Rise of Skywalker introduced some beautiful new plants, so I am excited to take a closer look at these. Now, just sit back and enjoy your ride in the Sandcrawler.
Ajan Kloss is the first planet that we see in the rise of skywalker. This is where Rey was training and where the resistance is hanging out.
This planet’s natives, the Kloss had died out eons ago and so the planet was uninhabited by the time some Alderaanian scouts found the planet before the Galactic Civil War. The planet then fell under the possession of the Alderaanian Royal Family and was used as a secret stronghold for the family. Leia had inherited it after the death of her parents and never took the Rebellion there, but she did take Luke to train her in the Jedi ways. It was also used by Luke to train his first generation of Jedi.
It was not until the Rise of Skywalker that the planet was used by Leia and the Resistance, again.
Pasaana is the next planet on the list. This is a desert planet that is in the expansion region of the galaxy. The natives, the Aki-Aki reject spaceflight and the technology like it, except for some farming tools to make their lives easier. They have a more simplistic lifestyle and unlike most other Star Wars desert planets, the planet is full of culture and art, as we had seen in the Festival of Ancestors, which happens every 42 years.
Under the surface are tunnels that are filled with water, but there are native species that hide in the caves waiting for unsuspecting thirsty Aki-Aki.
Kijimi is the next planet on the list. This is in the mid-rim of the galaxy and is covered in mountains and snow. This is where Zorri Bliss and her friends, the Spice Runners of Kijimi hideout. There isn’t too much going on on this frozen planet and it was destroyed in 35ABY by a Xyston-Class Star Destroyer from the sith eternal final order fleet.
Kef Bir is the next planet or moon to look at. This is the neighbor to the Forrest Moon of Endor and this is the Ocean Planet of Endor, orbiting the gas giant. The moon and planet are in the outer rim territories and this moon is covered with rough oceans and grasslands. This ocean moon is where most of the wreckage from the second death star landed.
The ocean moon was originally supposed to be the location for the second death star to orbit, but they had changed it to the forest moon of Endor because the moon had too few ores.
And finally, Exegol, the hidden sith planet that was located in the unknown regions. This is another planet to be ruined by the sith. It was originally lush, but over time the sith had turned it into the dark, barren desert that it is now. its dry conditions, combined with the rubbing of dust particles in its atmosphere, created enormous static discharges that appeared as lightning strikes from the planet’s surface.
The Sith Eternal cult had inhabited the planet and they were the ones who helped to keep Palpatine alive with the cloning facilities. Palpatine and Vader were the only two to have possession of the sith Wayfinder and therefore it had made the planet invisible for years.
This is the final resting place of Palpatine and the First Order, Empire, however, you want to look at it.
