Escarte was a strategic world, as well as a stronghold for the Separatist Alliance, situated along the Perlemian Trade Route where the Commerce Guild maintained their major interests. Around the time of the Clone Wars between the Galactic Republic and Separatist Alliance, where the Guild sided with the Confederacy, Escarte was placed under the protection of several Diamond-class cruisers and Recusant-class light destroyers, which were also supported by Guild corvettes and bombers. The world shared its name with the Escarte Guard.
