Zurek was a planet on the border of the Unknown Regions, home to several dangerous animals known as Dinosaurs. Two scientific research expeditions, both sponsored in part by Yorkin Mining Industries, have gone to the planet to perform geological and xenobiological surveys. Both expeditions took massive casualties.

In 17 ABY, New Republic Intelligence deleted all known records of the planet, effectively rendering it nonexistent, due to the fear that Dinosaur genetic material would fall into the hands of Imperial scientists, allowing them to create "living superweapons".
