this water-covered, Mid Rim world was the second and primary planet of the Ando system, and was the homeworld of the Aqualish race. It was orbited by a pair of moons. During the height of the Galactic Civil War, the planet was tightly controlled by the Empire. Ando was the sight of one of Thrawn's feint attacks in preparation for his attack on Ukio; the attack was led by the Bellicose. Ninety-five percent of the planet was covered by water and there was very little solid land mass, and the Aqualish have adapted by living in sailing ships or on the small islands. The islands themselves were often nothing more that hummocks in a swampy ecosystem, and were shrouded with an acrid, steamy mist. There was at one time a sister planet to Ando, but the Aqualish wars left it barren and blasted soon after they discovered space travel. During the Yuuzhan Vong invasion of the galaxy, Ando was one of the first planets which were "spared" in return for a live Jedi Knight. Unfortunately for Dorsk 82, he was killed by the Aqualish when he tried to protect the droids which worked on the planet. Ando eventually fell to the Yuuzhan Vong.
