Blasted Asteroid was a commercial chain of cantinas that operated after the Battle of Yavin during the Galactic Civil War between the Galactic Empire and the Alliance to Restore the Republic. During the war, cantinas in the chain could be found in spaceports and space stations throughout the galaxy. One such cantina was built on the Wheel space station and employed Ceoloe, a muscular Human, as both a bartender and a bouncer. Another cantina in the franchise was built in the town of Glare Peak on the planet Trivar II, although the building was partially destroyed when a Rebel BTL Y-wing starfighter crashed into it.
Behind the scenes
The Blasted Asteroid cantina chain was first introduced in Beyond the Rim, an adventure module written by Sterling Hershey for the Fantasy Flight Games roleplaying game, Star Wars: Edge of the Empire. The cantina on the Wheel was one location players could potentially visit while searching for information during the first episode of the game. The chain was later featured in Rescue at Glare Peak, a stand-alone adventure released for the Star Wars: Age of Rebellion roleplaying game by Fantasy Flight Games.
