- "Like Lucazec, Gromas supports a mining operation—for phrik, I believe—"
"The Empire has a depot there that includes a full range of fuel options."
- ―Moff Wilhuff Tarkin and Darth Vader
Gromas was an astronomical object located in the Perkell sector of the galaxy's Mid Rim. It was the location of an Imperial depot and supported a mining operation for phrik, a metallic compound that was nearly indestructible. In the year 14 BBY, the Imperial Joint Chiefs believed Gromas' depot was a possible target for former Republic Intelligence captain Berch Teller and his rebel cell and dispatched a task force to defend the installation. The rebels learned of this, however, and attacked Phindar instead.
