Hypori droid factory
Hypori (pronounced /haɪ'poɹi/) was a temperate planet of small oceans and rocky landscapes located in the Ferra sector of the Outer Rim Territories, notable for being a heavy battle droid producer.

Shortly after the onset of the Clone Wars, Jedi Master Daakman Barrek and his Padawan, Sha'a Gi, uncovered the Separatist operations on Hypori during an intelligence-gathering mission in the sector. They reported back to the Jedi High Council on Coruscant, which dispatched a Jedi and clone trooper strike team to investigate further. Unfortunately for the Republic forces, the Separatists had not left Hypori undefended. Disguised orbital mines seeded in orbit crippled much of the task force, and the surviving Jedi—among them Ki-Adi-Mundi, Shaak Ti, K'Kruhk, Tarr Seir, Sha'a Gi, and Aayla Secura—were ambushed by legions of B2 super battle droids and OG-9 homing spider droids led by General Grievous. The ruined hulk of an Acclamator I-class assault ship that had crashed into Hypori's surface became the site of an epic battle between the droid commander and the Jedi, from which only four Jedi emerged alive, with the help of ARC Captain Fordo and the Muunilinst 10. Though some of the battle droids were destroyed during the rescue attempt, the droid factories on Hypori remained in operation, and at least one remained operational after Darth Vader ordered the deactivation of the Separatist droid armies from Mustafar in 19 BBY.
