How to be immortal with the ability to manipulate matter, Ego he forged an entire world for himself, with waterfalls, glistening trees, and strange organic material that he could control and reconfigure at will. While he created a humanoid extension of himself in the form of Kurt russell In order to travel the universe and plant its "seed," it is actually an alien megastructure roughly the size of Earth's Moon.

Zonama Sekot was formed from the seed of another living world, Yuuzhan’tar, which was destroyed in the Cremlevian War. While Zonama is the name of the real planet, Sekot is its living intelligence. Zonama Sekot is described as a northern hemisphere thickly covered with polar ice and a southern hemisphere marked by impenetrable cloud cover. Several bodies of water are concentrated around its equator. The planet was first colonized by the Ferroans and the Langhesi. Two humanoid races from Star Wars that live in harmony with the sentient world.
What happened to Zonama Sekot?
In the Star Wars book titled Rogue planet, published in 2000, Obi-Wan Kenobi and Anakin Skywalker travel to the planet of the Outer Rim to investigate the disappearance of the Jedi Knight Vergere and buy one of Zonama Sekot's living ships. To obtain a custom ship, Obi-Wan and his young Padawan team up with the planet's seed partners. That is, small spiny organisms described by Sekot as "children … cells in my body." The resulting ship is extremely fast and uniquely attached to its owner, although Sekot still has the ability to fully command it. In fact, the planet maintains a reserve fleet of unmanned defensive ships that it directly controls in case of attack.
While Obi-Wan and Anakin are in Zonama Sekot, the planet is attacked by the future developer of the Death Star, Wilhuff Tarkin. That at that time he was a commander of the Galactic Republic who seeks to exploit the sentient world and its living ships. Sekot appears to Anakin as Vergere and proceeds to help young Skywalker. You as Obi-Wan navigate safely out of the planet's atmosphere before activating his hyperdrive system and escaping to the Unknown Regions.
Although Zonama Sekot has spent much of the following decades lurking in the Unknown Regions, this unique sentient planet continues to appear on the pages of novels from time to time. Most of all, joining forces with Luke Skywalker, Han Solo, and Leia Organa against the Yuuzhan Vong on one occasion. Zonama Sekot is notoriously wary of the war-torn regions of the known galaxy, but that doesn't mean we won't be patiently awaiting the return of this wonderfully strange creature from Star Wars.
