Sekot

this was the Ferroan name for the living part of the planet Zonama Sekot. In reality, Sekot was a living entity in and of itself, and controlled life and death on the world. Sekot had been living in the system for billions of years, and claimed to have seen the formation of the triple-star system in which Zonama Sekot existed. Many Old Republic databases claim that the planet was simply called Sekot, a remnant of the Ferroan term. When Leor Hal first came to the planet, he discovered Sekot's presence, and believed that she was caretaker of the Living Force, as defined by the Potentium. The two established a deep, working relationship in which both worked to ensure Zonama Sekot's privacy and safety. Sekot agreed to provide Hal with information on how to form Sekotan starships, as long as Hal used all profits to purchase huge hyperdrive cores. In this way, they prepared the planet for entry into hyperspace, an extreme escape mechanism. It was during this time that Sekot also came to accept the tenets of the Potentium as facts. When Leor Hal died, Sekot maintained a hologram of him to give the Zonamans and illusion of continuity. When the planet was attacked by the Far Outsiders, Sekot was forced to use the Sekotan technology to kill them, something she deeply regretted. When Wilhuff Tarkin and Raith Sienar attacked Zonama Sekot in an effort to turn the planet over to Supreme Chancellor Palpatine, Sekot appeared to Anakin Skywalker. The young Jedi padawan had traveled with Obi-Wan Kenobi to discover Vergere's whereabouts. Sekot could take many shapes, and often assumed the guise of Vergere herself to make Anakin more comfortable. Sekot revealed that she controlled all life on the planet, and used her powers to manipulate the weather as well as the positioning of the forests. In that way, Sekot was able to hide the large-scale development of planetary hyperdrives which were installed by the settlers of the planet. In the end, Zonama Sekot was unable to thwart Tarkin's assault, and Sekot was forced to take the planet into hyperspace in order to escape. It hid the planet in many places, each time finding conflict and destruction, until it settled in the Klasse Ephemora System. There it remained for many years, until it was discovered by Yuuzhan Vong Commander Ekh'm Val and Jedi Master Luke Sywalker almost at the same time. Sekot drove off the Yuuzhan Vong, but allowed the Jedi to land. Using a series of carefully orchestrated tests, Sekot tried to ascertain the true nature of the Jedis' visit. Only after it was satisfied that the Jedi truly meant it no harm did Sekot reveal itself, as the Fosh Vergere to Jacen Solo and as a young Anakin Skywalker to Luke. It explained many things about its life to Luke and Jacen, hinting that the presence of the Ferroans on Zonama might have precipitated its awakening. Having discovered the Jedi's desire for peace, Sekot agreed to accompany them back to the galaxy, in an effort to bring the war against the Yuuzhan Vong to a peaceful conclusion. However, the treacherous actions of Nom Anor nearly destroyed the planet. In order to avoid a deadly explosion, Sekot had to jump into hyperspace, thereby killing the incubator the Yuuzhan Vong had placed in hyperdrive vanes that moved the planet. Unable to reconcile its situation, Sekot retreated into itself, ignoring the ecological deterioration experienced by Zonama as the planet jumped in and out of hyperspace. Finally, after conferring with Master Skywalker, Sekot realized that it had to "fight without fighting" against the Yuuzhan Vong, and jumped to Coruscant to try and stall the final conflict that was about to occur. Sekot allowed its starships to be used for defense only during the battle, until it realized that Supreme Overlord Shimrra was planning to use the Alpha Red virus against it. Rather than fighting back, Sekot simply used the natural gravitic abilities of Zonama to pull the Yuuzhan Vong toward it, defending itself by welcoming home its true inhabitants. The virus itself was a simple enough matter to convert into a harmless material, but convincing the Yuuzhan Vong that Zonama Sekot was actually the "offspring" of Yuuzhan'tar was another matter. After the hostilities at Corsucant were concluded by the deaths of Shimrra and Onimi, Sekot discovered that it had been a living part of Yuuzhan'tar that had been cast out into the intergalactic void when it was realized that the ur-Yuuzhan Vong were going to obliterate themselves through war and conflict. The hope was that Zonama Sekot would evolve its own consciousness, and hopefull serve as a new home for those Yuuzhan Vong who put aside their warring ways and returned to a path of enlightenment. Sekot believed that its initial encounter with the Yuuzhan Vong some fifty years earlier was actually precipitated by Skot itself, in the form of a psychic call to welcome the Yuuzhan Vong home. This initial encounter ended in brief, and the truth of its events weren't borne out until much later. The Galactic Alliance, acting on the advice of Master Skywalker and the Jedi, allowed the Yuuzhan Vong to have Zonama Sekot as their new home. Sekot believed that, with time, the Yuuzhan Vong would also recover their ability to connect to the Force. To give the Yuuzhan Vong every chance it could, Sekot took the planet into the Unknown Regions and away from Coruscant.
