Since Mygeeto was locked in an ice age, giant crystallized glaciation and ice covered its surface, as well as huge crystal spurs. Because of this, Mygeeto means "gem" in the ancient trade language of the Muuns. Mygeeto's internal fires long since cooled and had left a huge deposit of precious stones within its crust and mantle. The immense assets of nova crystals and fields of lasing crystals made Mygeeto one of the wealthiest worlds in the galaxy. It also hosted artesian crystals and relacite. The planet's ice shelves were also home to huge deadly worms. Also, the planet itself was enveloped by an asteroid field.
Mygeeto was not composed of a uniform terrain; instead it was composed of many different kinds of terrain. There was no reported volcanic activity on the planet, meaning that the planet's interior was stable. The immense amount of precious metals found in the crust supports the theory that Mygeeto's volcanic activities had been dormant for some time.
Few cities existed on Mygeeto's sunken surface. These cities drew power from synthesized crystals which were constructed in large capacitor towers that stored and distributed the valuable energy drawn from the crystal. These cities were used mainly for administering the surrounding crystal mines, though they also contained vaults which were used by the InterGalactic Banking Clan.
Nearly all of the planet's surface was covered in thick ice, and the polar climate caused massive snow storms that battered the frigid surface almost continuously. Before the giant ice age, Mygeeto had climate ranging form polar to temperate - 30% of Mygeeto was covered in polar ice caps and 70 was either tundra or temperate. Temperature varied between -47 degrees in polar areas to 17 degrees in equatorial areas.
Every 200 years or so Mygeeto would go through a snow shift meaning snowfall would be persistent and low pressure would dominate the northern hemisphere. This would also mean Mygeeto's mean temperature would dip significantly affecting the whole planet.
The indigenous lemur-like sentient Lurmens were indigenous to Mygeeto in times long forgotten during the Pre-Republic era. Around 30,000 BBY, an alien species known as the Rakata annexed Mygeeto as part of their Infinite Empire. With the break-up of their empire after five thousand years of galactic dominance, the Rakata abandoned Mygeeto and retreated to their homeworld of Lehon, leaving no clues for later settlers as to how or why they died out. By 6,740 BBY, the planet was rediscovered by smugglers, and later Hutts and then Neimoidians took control of the planet. When the Muun controlled InterGalactic Banking Clan, they discovered Mygeeto and the native Lurmens were reduced to a status little better than slaves.
Due to easily mined formations of naturally-occurring, high-quality crystals and jagged rocks present on the planet, the InterGalactic Banking Clan guarded Mygeeto with a fleet of warships including the Munificent-class star frigates. As a result, access by rivals to the planet was difficult. Even if intruders had bypassed the blockade, they were faced with the harsh, frozen surface of the planet itself.
The Jedi had always wanted to explore the planet because of the large supply of natural crystals suitable for lightsaber construction, but the Banking Clan would not allow it.
The Banking Clan also constructed several cities on Mygeeto. These cities were used for administering the surrounding crystal mines, though they also contained vaults which were used by the Banking Clan to store its treasures.
During the Clone Wars, Mygeeto became a valuable member of the Confederacy of Independent Systems and was as a result named by Supreme Chancellor Palpatine as part of a "triad of evil", alongside Felucia and Saleucami.
Later, General Ki-Adi-Mundi led the Republic assault on the world along with Commander Bacara and the elite Galactic Marines. The planet would be the site of many horrific battles during the Clone Wars. By the conclusion of the battle, the vast cityscape lay in burning, ash-filled ruins. The hot ashes mixed with Mygeeto's ice crystals to cover the battlegrounds in sleet and snow. Many Republic vehicles, including UT-ATs, were blown apart by Confederate tri-droids. Later, Ki-Adi-Mundi's forces were reinforced by troopers from the 501st Legion sent by Palpatine himself.
Officially, the 501st Legion had been sent to destroy a droid energy collector, but in reality they were searching for an experimental power source that Palpatine required for a top-secret tributary laser-stream project code-named Hammertong. Clone Troopers destroyed two turbo laser turrets so that Ki-Adi-Mundi could land. After landing, Ki-Adi-Mundi headed for a Separatist tower, in which he was forced to fight three droidekas. Ki-Adi-Mundi managed to destroy the droids and detonate the tower, securing the power source that Palpatine had been looking for. Finally, he sent the power source off the planet, and aided the Clone Troops in the main battle. Towards the end of the battle, Commander Bacara received Order 66 and killed Ki-Adi-Mundi mercilessly.
The name of the planet Mygeeto may be named after the war-torn city of Megiddo in the Levant.
