Smuggler's Run is a treacherous asteroid field that harbors a plethora of smugglers and illegal activities, located near Wrea. There are numerous inhabited asteroids, but the largest and most important is Skip One. Navigating the asteroids is extremely hazardous, but a skilled pilot or astrogator can easily pull it off.
This collection of asteroids was once controlled by the Hutts. It served as a base of operations for many smugglers who couldn't afford the relative luxury of havens like Nar Shaddaa. Smuggler's Run has been in use for several centuries, and has remained unchecked due to its hazardous entrance through the asteroids. Several asteroids have been hollowed out or riddled with caverns to support life, and have been nicknamed Skips. The Skips were numbered in the order in which they were inhabited. A few minor crime lords developed personal empires within certain asteroids, but their influence rarely extended beyond a single rock.After the deaths of Jabba the Hutt and Emperor Palpatine, the Run was freed of Hutt control and began to operate on its own. During this time, many different beings have used Smuggler's Run as a place to meet up and compare stories, share smuggling tips and get information about new jobs.
