"Enemy closing to zone six."
―A clone trooper reports the position of Grievous's fleet[1]

Zone six was an expanse of the asteroid field that surrounded the planet Bothawui[1] in the Mid Rim.[2] Zone six was located next to zone five. During the Battle of Bothawui, an engagement of the Clone Wars between the Confederacy of Independent Systems and Galactic Republic,[1] in 22 BBY,[3] General Grievous led his Confederate fleet of Munificent-class star frigates through zone six to reach and attack Jedi General Anakin Skywalker's[1] task force[4] of Venator-class Star Destroyers. Aboard Skywalker's flagship, the Resolute, a clone trooper in Resolute command reported the Separatist fleet's movement while tracking them on a screen. Unknown to Grievous, Skywalker had allowed for the frigates to pass through zone six and beyond, as it meant the starships could be outmaneuvered by a force of All Terrain Tactical Enforcers that was hidden on surrounding asteroids.[1]

Behind the scenes[]

Zone six appeared on a screen aboard the Resolute in the Star Wars: The Clone Wars[1] Season One episode "Downfall of a Droid," which first aired on November 7, 2008.[5]
