The Penegelen Shards were a spherical cloud of tumbling fragments which orbited the star Penegelen in the Inner Rim, within the star system of the same name. They consisted of substances such as scorched alloys or flash-frozen hunks of dirt and rock. Scientists believed that the shards were the remnants of a shell that once encapsulated Penegelen. The shell was thought to have potentially been a creation of an ancient species known as the Celestials.
Behind the scenes
The Penegelen Shards were originally meant to be mentioned in the 2012 source book The Essential Guide to Warfare by Jason Fry and Paul R. Urquhart, however the sidebar that would have mentioned the shards was cut before the book's release. The information regarding the shards was then 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 Shards in grid square L-14.
