"An asteroid mining facility, belonging to the Commerce Guild."
Anakin Skywalker and TC-16[src]

Escarte was an Outer Rim Territories asteroid in the Escarte system which orbited between massive, multi-mooned gas giants on the Rimward side of the Perlemian Trade Route. Oblate when mining operations had commenced in 39 BBY, Escarte was, by 19 BBY, a facility used by the Commerce Guild. Here the Guild mined neighboring asteroids using tractor beams, which captured small asteroids and drew them directly into the facility. They controlled the asteroid with the Escarte Judiciary and the Escarte Guard.

It was visited by Jedi Master Obi-Wan Kenobi and Anakin Skywalker during their search for Darth Sidious late in the Clone Wars.
