History

Ecologically, the world was a terrestrial mix of tundras, mountains, grasslands and deserts. A standard day was 26 standard hours and a standard year 456 local days.

The reputation that had developed over the centuries was that the complete knowledge of the galaxy had been gathered within the computers of Obroa-skai's information repositories. Obroa-skai was also home to a large collection of Jedi-related antiquities which were destroyed by the Imperial Security Bureau.

The Obroans kept their planet neutral during the Galactic Civil War, despite heavy petitioning by the New Republic in 9 ABY. Obroa-skai's expansive library of galactic information and numerous academic institutions drew Grand Admiral Thrawn to raid its central computer system. The data acquired gave Thrawn the hidden location of Wayland, while the raid also served as part of a distraction technique used on the New Republic forces prior to the Battle of Sluis Van.

Obroa-skai was captured by the Yuuzhan Vong during their invasion of the Galaxy, and a yammosk was installed in the planet's mantle. Much was lost from the archives, but hardcopies of key items were saved before the assault. The Yuuzhan Vong kept many of the copies intact, at least until they could get them fully translated. The world was later liberated, and the yammosk destroyed.

Mistakes and inconsistencies

The planet's name is repeatedly misspelled as "Obra-skai" in Before the Storm. Star Wars: Rebellion: Prima's Official Strategy Guide likewise misspells the planet as "Obra-Skai."

The PC game Star Wars: Rebellion mistakenly places Obroa-skai in the Fakir Sector of the Galactic Core. The Fakir Sector is actually located in the Inner Rim.
