The Redhurne star was located in the inhabited Redhurne system of the Mid Rim's Metatessu sector and was orbited by multiple planets and at least one moon which at some point became shattered. The star eventually had a supernova which ravaged the orbiting worlds,[1] with the innermost ones being cracked open by the star's gravitational pull[2] such that at least one asteroid was formed. As a result, all traces of life and civilization that had once existed in the Redhurne system were wiped out, and all that remained of the Redhurne star was a post-nova fragment that glowed intensely white.[1]

The collapsed star remnant emitted toxic radiation which transmuted the cores of the broken planets into exotic materials that were later used as the building blocks for hypermatter fuel. Centuries after the supernova, the materials were mined during the waning days of the Galactic Republic and went on to supply the Republic's successor, the Galactic Empire, by the time of the Galactic Civil War.[1]
