this site, located on the moon of Eskaron, was formed from the dessicated body of an immense space slug. Originally discovered by Likk Nibk, The Worm was a passageway through the moon which was formed when the slug died. Scientists believed that the original slug was more than 12,000 years old when it died. All internal organs and tissues had dissolved over time, leaving the interior of the tunnel covered with dried skin. A team of entrepreneurial smugglers established a starship race inside The Worm, during the last century of the Old Republic.
