Description: Skako Minor, also referred to simply as Skako, was a planet located in the galaxy's Core Worlds that was the homeworld of the Skakoan and Poletec species. It was controlled by the Techno Union, whose headquarters was the city of Purkoll, and homeworld of Wat Tambor, foreman of the aforementioned commerce guild and member of the Separatist Council. Despite the Techno Union's ostensible neutrality, Skako Minor was captured by the Galactic Republic during the Clone Wars, and its successor, the Galactic Empire, maintained the occupation into the Galactic Civil War.

Located in the galaxy's Core Worlds, in grid square L-9 on the Standard Galactic Grid, the planet Skako Minor sat between Brentaal and Fedalle on the Hydian Way hyperspace route. A temperate world, its misty surface featured canyons, mountains, caverns, craters, and fungal forests. It had an atmosphere of hydrogen sulphide, which had a unique pressure.

Skako Minor was the homeworld of eight-eyed, gasbag-headed vine walkers known as octuptarras, as well as large, flying creatures known as keeradaks.

Skako was also the homeworld of the sentient Skakoan species, and its atmospheric pressure required them to wear pressure suits to survive off-world; otherwise, they would explode when exposed to standard oxygen-based atmospheres. Wat Tambor, the foreman of the Techno Union during the final years of the Republic, was a male Skakoan from this world.

The Techno Union built their headquarters, the city of Purkoll, on Skako Minor, nearby a Poletec village. It was also the location of a Techno Union cache, which served as the personal workshop of Wat Tambor and was treated as a holy site by the Skakoan people.

Wat Tambor's workshop
A workshop was owned by Wat Tambor of the Techno Union on the planet Skako Minor.

Poletec village
A Poletec village was located near the city of Purkoll on the planet Skako Minor during the Clone Wars. It was attacked by the Techno Union, but Jedi General Anakin Skywalker, Clone Force 99, Clone Captain CT-7567 and ARC trooper CT-1409 helped the chief and his village defeat them. Even so, its grounds sustained heavy damage from the Octuptarra tri-droids firing at the Poletecs.

Purkoll was a city located on the planet Skako Minor, and headquarters of the Techno Union. The facility had D-wing air support droids and octuptarra magna tri-droids guarding it, and was where the organic decimator was created. During the Clone Wars, ARC trooper Echo was experimented on there, and he was rescued during a Galactic Republic mission to the planet, with the facility being damaged in the process.
