Universe Star Wars

The Geonosians were an insectoid race native to the planet Geonosis. Having evolved in the harsh environment of the planet, the Geonosians' hive-based society grew into a rigid caste system that defined a specific hierarchy that could not be broken: the queen and the aristocrats, the warriors, and the drones. They joined the Confederacy of Independent Systems during the Clone Wars, manufacturing their Battle Droid armies on Geonosis up until the Galactic Republic invaded and took control of the planet, killing the Geonosian Queen Karina the Great during their invasion. Years later, when the Republic was reorganized into the Galactic Empire, used the Geonosians as slaves to build their superweapon, the Death Star. Sometime later, after the build site of the Death Star was moved to a different location, the Imperial Military committed genocide on the Geonosian race, leaving only two known Geonosians surviving this genocide, Klik-Klak and a young Geonosian Queen who was unable to lay new eggs to restart the race.
