Affiliation

Kubindi, home to the Kubaz, was a planet that orbited a blue giant star that emitted powerful solar flares. Kubindi was regularly hit with this radiation, causing erratic weather patterns and making the world dry and arid. A day on Kubindi lasted 48 standard hours and a year lasted 420 local days.

History

One solar flare was so powerful that it burned all plant life on Kubindi, forcing the Kubaz to eat what was left: the insects. As such, the Kubaz became renowned throughout the galaxy as expert cooks of unusual insectoid cuisine.

The business of Kubindi was now entirely from the sale and production of insects, which financed other projects in technology and space travel. Kubazi clothing was one export, introduced by the Techno Union to the Mustafarians.

A Kubaz.

The planet had many insect farms and was famous for its Force nexus, the Silver Forest of Dreams. The natives lived in hive-mounds ruled by matriarchal queens. All Kubaz in a hive were descendants of the queen. Many richer hives escaped the irradiated world, settling more fertile planets in the Ku'Bakai system. The Kubaz eventually discovered space travel, and migrated to the sixth, eighth and eleventh worlds of their home system, leaving only the outcast and poor Kubaz on Kubindi.

After these new worlds were populated, the Kubaz discovered their neighbors: the insectoid Verpine which also inhabited the same system. As a result, the Kubaz began hunting them down as a new food source.

Eventually both the species joined the New Republic, and the New Republic prevented the Kubaz from hunting Verpines for food. As a result of New Republic intervention, both species lived in peace until the Yuuzhan Vong War.

Ten months into the Yuuzhan Vong War, the Ku'Bakai system was conquered, the Yuuzhan Vong having been attracted by the Kubaz history of insectile genetic engineering. The battle for the planet was long and fierce. Kyp Durron's Dozen and Two Avengers squadron was able to keep the alien invaders at bay long enough for the Verpine and Kubaz to evacuate the system. The planet was eventually conquered and was used as an outpost by Yuuzhan Vong. However, the planet was later liberated by the Galactic Alliance, with the intent of using it as a fallback point in case Mon Calamari was attacked. The Kubaz had begun returning to their homeworld by the end of the Swarm War.

Fauna

Creatures that lived on Kubindi included, but are not limited to, sun beetles, decalegs, fieldhoppers, ghost spiders, greenflies, kurets, micromites, and scarpyen.
