Mechis III is an industrial/factory planet which appeared in the Expanded Universe. It is primarily a gigantic factory, similar to
Coruscantin the fact that it has little, or possibly no natural life. The planet seems to have been established long before pollution laws came into place. The planet has a human population of approximately 73, at its peak, as most of the laborers were droids.
The planet was almost entirely automated, as the organic population had almost no influence. It remained neutral during most wars, as either side used it to produce its weapons, ships, droids, tools, equipment, etc. It was later considered 'too important to consider attacking'. It had no military force to defend it, and only a long-outdated electronic security defense.
In the Old Republic it served as one of the many droid foundries of the Techno Union. During the days of the Empire, it was electronically sliced by the
droid bounty hunter IG-88. He then converted the planet into his basing ground for its operations and an eventual droid revolution, modifying every droid being produced with special espionage and obedience programming, to be similarly self-aware like him and ready to rebel. With billions of droids being produced, all sending information back to IG-88, it gave IG-88 a very powerful, but hidden, galactic presence. Mechis III was considered to be the staging ground for IG-88s galactic takeover, but the existing IG-88 models were destroyed by Boba Fett, Dash Rendar, and the explosion of the second Death Star, mere moments before the takeover program could be activated, thus nipping their rebellion in the bud.Kevin J.

Melida/Daan is a temperate world which, twenty years before the
Galactic Civil War, had been the home to a bloody civil war of its own. The factions involved were the Melida and the Daan. The two groups could not come up with a name for their planet, so the Jediarchives compromised.
Neither the Melida nor the Daan could remember the origins of their civil war, only their complete hatred for one another. Battle was glorified; children were trained to use weapons from an early age, and giant
martyr-filled tombs, called Halls of Evidence, dotted the skyline of the severely damaged capital city of Zehava. Most of the middle-aged people of Melida/Daan were dead from previous battles, and the armies consisted primarily of the elderly.
However, a youth organization called the Young despised the civil war, and took a stand. The Young was led by two teenagers called Neild and Cerasi. Obi-Wan found a deep commitment into helping the Young even after being warned by Qui-Gon not to take sides. During the mission to Melida/Daan to rescue the Jedi Knight Tahl,
Obi-Wan Kenobibriefly left the Jedi Order to assist the Young in uniting the planet. They succeeded in stopping the civil war, and focused on rebuilding the destroyed world. However, after forming a government with Neild the governor, the Young slowly ripped itself apart. Neild claimed that Obi-Wan was an outsider even after his part played in the war for peace, Obi-wan missed being a Jedi. Neild and his squad of demolishers tried to demolish the Hall of Evidence were Cerasi's family were buried and Wehutti, Cerasi's father rearmed him and his followers and tried to stop Neild. Unfortunately Cerasi was shot in the chest in the confusion and died. Each side blamed the other and war seemed inevitable. Obi-Wan turned to the Jedi for help and ask for Qui-Gon Jinn to assist. After the arrival of Qui-Gon they soon discovered that Mawat, a Scavenger Young from the countryside wanted war to erupt so he could control the planet. He had posted sharpshooters on the roof and were told to shoot if either Wehutti or Neild backed down. Obi-Wan found Neild in the Hall of Evidence were Cerasi's ashes were and told him what had happened. When they made there way to the door Mawat was wireing explosives and was going to blame it on Neild. Obi-Wan and Neild stopped them and a battle broke out. Qui-Gon arrived just in time with a hologram form of Cerasi speaking about the war for peace. Everyone dropped their weapons and the final battle was over.
