The Akkadese Maelstrom, also known simply as the Maelstrom, was a cluster of matter in the Kessel sector containing interstellar gas, carbonbergs, ice chunks, and other large debris that surrounded the planet Kessel. Also within the Maelstrom was the Maw Cluster, as well as massive creatures known as summa-verminoth. The Kessel Run was a charted route through the Maelstrom, which was in close proximity to the planet Oba Diah, the base of operations for the Pyke Syndicate.
