During the Galactic Civil War, the Rebel Alliance maintained a cell on Asher III. Shortly before the Battle of Hoth of 3 ABY, the Galactic Empire tracked down the Asher III cell and moved to destroy the Rebel presence there, eliminating most of it. The Rodian arms dealer Lernik De'Yago, who was on the celestial body at the time, stole the Rebel starship Nova Whisper and used it to escape Asher III.
