- "Just when I think I'm out, the Yuuzhan Vong keep pulling me back in."
- ―Zonama Sekot
Zonama Sekot was a living planet with a name and feelings and self-awareness and a Social Security Number. Far back in the mists of time, Zonama Sekot accidentally gave birth to the Yuuzhan Vong and was so ashamed it stuck hyperdrive engines up its ass... well, in some volcanic fissures, but basically the same thing, and left its home galaxy entirely.
But then to Zonama Sekot's great annoyance, the Yuuzhan Vong actually followed it across the universe and invaded the galaxy. A bunch of Jedi, including Luke Skywalker and Jacen Solo, went hunting for it, and Zonama Sekot ran away, not wanting to be part of the silly Vong invasion storyline. Eventually, Luke and Jacen tracked it down, and the planet reluctantly agreed to help... and then out of nowhere, Nom Anor showed up and poisoned its entire ecosystem. "Typical," thought Zonama Sekot. The planet survived, though, and eventually made a hyperspace jump and appeared in the skies of Coruscant, becoming part of the battle to retake the planet.
After the Yuuzhan Vong War had ended, Zonama Sekot tried to quietly slink off into obscurity and never see another Yuuzhan Vong again... but because it was a planet, it couldn't sneak very well. The Jedi decided the Yuuzhan Vong would resettle on Zonama Sekot and reestablish their presence in the Force. The poor, hapless planet was then stuck having to spend the rest of its existence crawling with Vong.
