The Silken Asteroids was a field of asteroids in a system governed by the Galactic Empire's Moff Derliff in the galactic region of Wild Space at coordinates O-20. The area containing the Silken Asteroids was governed by Moff Derliff during the first years of the Galactic Civil War. The asteroids were rocky and were without water. Mynocks were found in the field.
Rebel General Jan Dodonna established a minor base on an asteroid with a thin atmosphere around 2 BBY, but it was discovered by Imperial-class Star Destroyers belonging to Moff Derliff. The Rebel base's Z-95 Headhunters held off Derliff's initial attack and Dodonna rallied the base's forces to attack Derliff's base and drove away the Imperials.
