"Look at this. All the database says is: "Abafar: information on Planet Void."
―Meebur Gascon[src]

Abafar was a remote desert planet located within the Outer Rim Territories, and was host to massive amounts of rhydonium, a scarce and volatile fuel source. The large desert was known as the Void, and light was twisted in a way by the strange regolith that made it impossible to see tracks because there were no shadows.[1] During the Clone Wars, the Confederacy of Independent Systems set up a mining installation in the settlement of Pons Ora. The planet wasn't very populated.[7] During the reign of the Galactic Empire, the Hutt crime lord Jabba Desilijic Tiure had a drilling platform on Abafar to mine rhydonium.[8] Following the Battle of Endor, the New Republic pilot Wedge Antilles visited Abafar whilst looking for Imperial forces that may have been hiding in the Outer Rim.[9]

Behind the scenesEdit

Abafar first appeared in "A Sunny Day in the Void", an episode of Star Wars: The Clone Wars that first aired on December 7, 2012.[10]
