"What in the three rings of Anstares is goin' on and who is that …"
―A smuggler, upon being contacted by Woetar[src]

Anstares VI, also known as Anstares, was a Mid Rim gas giant located in the Juvex sector. It was orbited by three planetary rings and eight moons, the latter of which were a popular destination for visitors from both the Senex-Juvex region and the wider galaxy.

DescriptionEdit

Anstares VI,[1] also known simply as Anstares,[2] was a gas giant–type planet located in the Anstares system of the Juvex sector, a part of the Senex-Juvex region in the Western Reaches portion of the Mid Rim. The Senex-Juvex Loop hyperlane linked it to the Deminol and Zaria systems.[1]

Within its star system, the planet occupied the sixth orbital position, and was itself encircled by three planetary rings and orbited by eight habitable moons. Anstares' natural satellites overlooked the planet's rings as well as the nearby Thull's Shroud nebula.[1]

HistoryEdit

At some point between 4 ABY and 9 ABY,[3] when the Zarian con artist Woetar unexpectedly contacted the starship of a smuggling duo on the[2] Senex sector[1] planet Antiquity, one of the smugglers mentioned the rings of Anstares in an expression of confusion.[2]

InhabitantsEdit

Like the rest of the Senex-Juvex worlds, Anstares fell under the control of the region's aristocratic Ancient Houses. The planet's moons were a popular destination for nobles of the Senex-Juvex as well as individuals from the Core Worlds and affluent tourists from the wider galaxy.[1]

Behind the scenesEdit

Anstares was introduced in "Free Time," a roleplaying adventure written by Gary Haynes for use with West End Games' Star Wars: The Roleplaying Game and published in the 1992 supplement The Politics of Contraband.[2] The 2009 reference book The Essential Atlas provided the planet's full name and placed it in grid square L-17.[1]
