"Four of the Z-95s were destroyed with no survivors, though one Headhunter is unaccounted for, but is believed to have succumbed to the gravity well of nearby Vuchelle and burned up on reentry."
―HoloNet News report[src]

The Vuchelle system lay in the Outer Rim Territories' Atrivis sector and contained the astronomical object Vuchelle. In 22 BBY, a Jedi-led Galactic Republic task force defeated the pirates of Iridium in a confrontation that took place in the system. It was later reported by the HoloNet News that one of the pirates' starfighters was believed to have burned up in the atmosphere of Vuchelle.

Description[edit | edit source]

The Vuchelle system was a part of the Atrivis sector that was located in the New Territories portion of the Outer Rim Territories. The Braxant Run hyperlane linked it to the Fedje system and the Cassander sector's Isiring system.[1] The star system contained the astronomical object Vuchelle. In addition, a large green-and-yellow nebula could be seen from within the system.[2]

History[edit | edit source]

"Sensor reports from the Atrivis sector issued by the Judicial Department confirm that a Jedi task force has thrashed the space pirates of Iridium, bringing an end to their year-long raids along the Atrivis sector routes."
―HoloNet News report[src]

By the date 13:3:28, the pirates of Iridium had been committing year-long raids on Galactic Republic convoys along the Atrivis sector hyperspace routes,[2] including in the vicinity of Vuchelle.[4] A joint Jedi Order–Republic task force attempted to conduct peaceful negotiations in the Vuchelle system with the pirates. During the talks, the raiders opened fire, leading to a confrontation that took place near Vuchelle.[2]

Eventually, the pirate force was defeated, and it was later reported in an issue of the CoCo District Edition of the HoloNet News that one of the raiders' Z-95 Headhunter starfighters was believed to have succumbed to Vuchelle's gravity well and burned up in its atmosphere.[2] The Vuchelle system was situated in the territory of the Pentastar Alignment between 4 ABY and 12 ABY[1] and fell within the borders of the Imperial Remnant between 12 ABY and 13 ABY.[3]

Behind the scenes[edit | edit source]

The Vuchelle system was first depicted in HoloNet News Vol. 531 #49, an in-universe issue of the HoloNet News[2] written by Pablo Hidalgo and Paul Ens, illustrated by Joe Corroney,[5] and published on the HoloNet News website on March 28, 2002.[6] The 2009 reference book The Essential Atlas, authored by Daniel Wallace and Jason Fry, identified the system by name and placed it in grid square L-5.[1]
