This Star Wars Legends article contains information from the 2008 Slaves of the Republic comic books that was omitted from the Star Wars: The Clone Wars TV series' 2011 adaptation of the story.

The Season Four episodes "Kidnapped," "Slaves of the Republic," and "Escape from Kadavo" have canonical precedence. Editor discretion is advised.

"Where are we, Master Obi-Wan?"
"The former homeworld of the Shi'kar, obliterated by a comet impact some time past. Its remains have become a lawless region stalked by scavengers, smugglers, and pirates."
―Ahsoka Tano and Obi-Wan Kenobi[src]
Shi&#039;kar Straits

The Shi'kar Straits, former homeworld of the Shi'kar

The Shi'kar were a group whose homeworld[1]—located in the Nembus sector of the Outer Rim Territories[2]—was destroyed by a comet impact some time prior to the Clone Wars[1] of 2219 BBY.[3] Their planet fractured into numerous pieces under the impact, eventually becoming an asteroid belt known as the Shi'kar Straits. Some of the larger asteroids still contained ruined structures from the planet's past. By the time of the Clone Wars, the Shi'kar Straits had become a haven for smugglers, pirates, and scavengers.[1]

Behind the scenesEdit

The Shi'kar were created by Henry Gilroy for the comic book Star Wars: The Clone Wars 2, published by Dark Horse Comics in 2008. The comic featured a mission to the Shi'kar Straits undertaken by the Jedi Obi-Wan Kenobi, Anakin Skywalker, and Ahsoka Tano, who were trying to track down the Zygerrian Slavers Guild.[1]

When the comic storyline was adapted for the fourth season of the Star Wars: The Clone Wars television series in late 2011 and early 2012, the Jedi's visit to the Shi'kar Straits was not included.[4] As the TV series takes precedence over the comic books within the Star Wars Legends continuity, the existence of the Shi'kar cannot be irrefutably confirmed.[5]
