"Vanqor is no place to be after dark."
Hondo Ohnaka, to Count Dooku[src]

Vanqor was a large planet in the Outer Rim territories, located in the Uziel System, approximately 6 parsecs away from Florrum. It was known to be the only planet in the galaxy that was home to the large predators, Gundarks. The landscape was primarily made up of rocky deserts and canyons, with caves that emitted toxic gases.

Vanqor's barren landscape.

The planet was inadvertently visited by Anakin Skywalker and Obi-Wan Kenobi in 22 BBY, during the Clone Wars, while they pursued Count Dooku. They crashed on the surface and began searching nearby caves for him. Dooku managed to use the Force to trap them in, but when he returned to his ship, he found that a pirate gang, under the command of Captain Hondo Ohnaka had arrived and began to salvage the crash. They then gave him transport to the nearby planet of Florrum, where they then held him hostage.

Meanwhile, Kenobi and Skywalker fended off a female gundark and nearly suffocated from the toxic gases before they were rescued from the cave by Jedi Padawan Ahsoka Tano and a group of clone troopers.

Later on in the war, it was the site of the crash of the Venator-class star destroyer, Endurance, after its reactor core had been sabotaged by Boba Fett in an attempt on Jedi Master Mace Windu's life, the man who killed his father. Though most of the crew evacuated, Admiral Shoan Kilian remained with his vessel, accompanied by Commander Ponds and a few clone naval officers. Boba and his accomplices attempted to kill Windu by placing a bomb on board the wreckage of the bridge as he arrived there with Anakin Skywalker. This failed as they were rescued by Plo Koon, Ahsoka Tano and R2-D2.
