"Sir, the possibility of successfully navigating an asteroid field is approximately three thousand seven hundred and twenty to one!"
"Never tell me the odds!"
Rebel protocol droid C-3PO and pilot Han Solo on board the Millennium Falcon referring to the asteroid field — Gnome-speakernotesListen (file info)[src]

The Hoth asteroid belt was an asteroid field overlapping the boundaries of the Hoth and Anoat systems near the planet Hoth.[2] It contained millions of asteroids, some large, some small, some the size of tiny moons. About two-thirds of them were big enough to destroy a starship as large as an YT-1300 light freighter on impact[4] and some were even large enough to devastate capital ships. Creatures like exogorths and mynocks were present in this area. Shortly after the Battle of Hoth, being chased by the Imperial TIE/ln space superiority starfighters, the crew of the Millennium Falcon noticed that the hyperdrive was damaged, so they dashed into the asteroid belt to ditch the pursuit.[2] Despite the near-impossibility of successfully navigating an asteroid field without getting pulverized, the Falcon evaded its pursuers (who were not as lucky) and hid inside one of the largest astreoids. Death Squadron—the Imperial fleet under the command of Darth Vader himself—pursued them, but the field punished them with brutal impacts, resulting in the loss of at least one Star Destroyer when its bridge tower was obliterated by a particularly large asteroid and even causing damage to the Executor-class Star Dreadnought Executor before it withdrew.[2]
