"This is the Valsedian asteroid belt. It is a rich trove of ore that can be turned into fuel, armor and weaponry for the war."
Supreme Chancellor Palpatine[src]

The Valsedian asteroid belt was an ore-rich asteroid belt located deep within Hutt Space.


Xebec: "Sensor scans show stable pressure outside, and trace atmosphere… it's cold, but survivable."
Reus: "Breath masks it is, then."

During the Clone Wars, the Valsedian asteroid belt contained a hidden base owned by the Hutt Cartel. The base served as a mining facility where Ugnaught workers processed ore extracted from the asteroids in the belt. The base was guarded by a group of individuals hired by Count Dooku, who had access to everything the facility had to offer, including a wine cellar that contained Ugnaught wine.[2]


Clone WarsEdit

Ventress: "I humbly bring bad news, Master. Valsedian is not in our control."
Dooku: "I am doubtful it ever was. It appears that mighty Jabba has outmaneuvered us. Such scheming, worthy of a Sith."
Asajj Ventress and Count Dooku[src]

During the Clone Wars, the Valsedian asteroid belt was suspected to have been sold to the Confederacy of Independent Systems by Torpo the Hutt, in breach of the terms of a treaty between the Hutts and the Galactic Republic. In response, the Jedi Order set up a mission to investigate this matter.[2]

Galactic Civil WarEdit

During the Galactic Civil War, the Rebel Alliance established a base in the Valsedian asteroid belt. The base was later decimated by the Galactic Empire. As a reward for this success, Admiral Gaen Drommel would eventually be given command of the Executor-class Star Dreadnought Guardian.[3]
