Lesser Galam was a barren, lifeless world seared by its proximity to its star. However, excavation companies set up mining operations sometime after it was discovered to be rich in ores around the year 1,300 BBY. The same would be discovered to be the case for Lan Fellov and Lan Tundi: barren, seared worlds rich in ore. Greater Galam was also incapable of supporting life, as it was a gas giant.

Lan Barell was an arid, desert world and the home world of the insectoid Qieg species. Also rich with ore deposits, Lan Barell was originally excavated by Republic companies in league with the local Qieg. Over time the companies folded but the human-Qieg worker unions remained. During the Galactic Civil War, the planet came under Imperial occupation, though the Empire gave them full autonomy, with little presence on the world.
