When the explorers of the Old Republic discovered the Iktotchi civilization, some time approximately between 4000 BBY to 3500 BBY, they were extremely surprised to see that these beings had already prepared for their arrival for several weeks. The Iktotchi had carved the symbol of the Republic into their world's surface.
In 22 BBY, Mace Windu and Saesee Tiin thwarted a Separatist invasion at the Battle of Iktotch. The planet was blockaded by the Galactic Empire and later became a founding member of the New Republic.
Behind the scenesEdit
The New Essential Guide to Alien Species' incorrectly states the Iktotchi are from Iktotchon, which is a gas giant in the Iktotchi system.
The Essential Atlas shows in the Galactic Explorations map that Iktotchi was discovered sometime between 20,000 BBY to 15,000 BBY, however whether this is the planet or just the system has yet to be stated. In an email, Jason Fry stated that it's possible the Iktotchi and their system were most likely known much earlier than the date which is stated in The New Essential Guide to Alien Species. An Iktotchi is seen in Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic 45: Destroyer, Part 1 set in 3963 BBY.
