Bandomeer was a planet in the Outer Rim Territories, on the Braxant Run. It was known for its high concentration of ionite, as well as the many predators lurking in its wildernesses. The planet's surface was roughly divided in half by a huge landmass and the Great Sea of Bandomeer.

History

Bandomeer was a mining world dominated by the Offworld Mining Corporation until 45 BBY. The planet was at one time an agricultural world of rolling plains until it was discovered that many valuable ores were hidden in its crust. Then, mining operations such as Offworld Mining took control, and reduced it to strip mines and industrial wastes. The planet was the homeworld of the Meerian race, who struggled to come to terms with the prosperity that cost their world's natural beauty. Even Bandomeer's surrounding asteroids were rich with mineral deposits, but could not be mined due to the risk of fragments colliding with the planet.

When Obi-Wan Kenobi and Qui-Gon Jinn arrived on the world, they narrowly saved it from destruction at the hands of Xanatos.

In 19 BBY the Ionite miners of Bandomeer refused to honor their contracts with Galactic Empire. In order to teach them to treat the new government with respect, Emperor Palpatine ordered his apprentice, Darth Vader, to deal with the local resistance. The Imperial Army quickly overwhelmed lightly armed miners and established control over the planet.

Huff Darklighter once employed farmers from Bandomeer, as well as Salliche and Taanab, to staff his underground hydroponic gardens on Tatooine. Bandomeer was conquered by the Yuuzhan Vong during their invasion of the galaxy.
