Penegelen was a star located in the star system of the same name, which was a part of the Inner Rim region of the galaxy. It was orbited by a spherical cloud of debris known as the Penegelen Shards, which consisted of tumbling fragments of alloy, rock, and flash frozen dirt. Scientists believed that these shards once made up a shell which enclosed Penegelen. This shell was thought to have been a creation of an ancient species known as the Celestial.
Behind the scenes
Penegelen was originally meant to be mentioned in the 2012 reference book The Essential Guide to Warfare by Jason Fry and Paul R. Urquhart; however the sidebar that would have mentioned the star was cut before the book's release. The information regarding the star was later released in 2013 as part of Star Wars: The Essential Guide to Warfare Author's Cut, a series of articles published on the StarWars.com Blog by Jason Fry and Erich Schoeneweiss containing various cut content from The Essential Guide to Warfare. The Essential Atlas Online Companion placed the star in grid square L-14.
