Thrugii was a planet located within the Thrugii system of the Outer Rim Territories. A desolate, rocky planet near an asteroid field, it has been the home of many failed miners. The residents were considered claim jumpers by the sector authorities, who said that they controlled all the rights to Thrugii and the asteroid belt. After the authorities locked down the planet, the miners found themselves out of supplies. Smuggler Kaine Paulsen was killed while trying to deliver supplies to them.
