Early in the Clone Wars, it was the site of a battle between the Separatist flagship Malevolence and several Republic warships. All of the Republic ships were destroyed, but several escape pods were jettisoned, although only one was found by Anakin Skywalker and his Padawan Ahsoka Tano in their search for survivors.
During the New Republic, its location fell in the then-named "Borderland Regions"—a militarized zone which separated New Republic space from the fragmented Empire. Economically, Abregado was significant, for it possessed an advanced manufacturing infrastructure which linked the system's planets. The goods produced were considered vital by Coruscant's restored democratic regime.
