The Carpastor system was a star system that was located in the Rolion sector, within the Outer Rim Territories[1] and Trans-Hydian regions.[2] The system was the location of the phenomenon known as the Carpastor Comet Swarm.[3][4]

Behind the scenesEdit

The Carpastor system was established in the Online Companion to the 2009 reference book The Essential Atlas, which placed the system in grid square Q-7.[1]

  2. 2.0 2.1 SWCustom-2011 Star Wars: The Essential Atlas Online Companion on (article) (backup link) places the Carpastor system in grid square Q-7. The Essential Atlas depicts territory falling in that grid square as being located in either the Trans-Hydian region (spinward from the Perlemian Trade Route super-hyperroute) or the Slice (trailing from the Perlemian). Since the Online Companion also places the system within the Rolion sector, which is located spinward from the Perlemian, according to SWCustom-2011 The Essential Atlas Extra: Outer Rim Sectors on (backup link), it therefore must also be part of the Trans-Hydian.

Jason Fry, co-author of The Essential Atlas, stated his intention to create homeworlds for numerous species based on context implied from their names. Given this principle, this article makes a similar basic assumption for the Carpastor Comet Swarm in relation to the Carpastor system.
