Skip 1 was the primary asteroid that was part of Smuggler's Run. It was home to a spaceport and massive smuggling facility, as well as the typical locales associated with smugglers, including cantinas and casinos. Navigating the asteroid field was very treacherous, thus making Smuggler's Run a very secure hideout. Skip 1 was the largest of several asteroids named "Skip". The asteroid almost exploded once due to a mysterious slime.
Later that year, Skip 1 was damaged after droids containing bombs, which were meant to be smuggled to Coruscant as part of Dark Jedi Kueller's New Rebellion, exploded, resulting in the deaths of a number of smugglers. Han Solo and Lando Calrissian managed to save some of the injured, by flying them to the nearby Wrea system for treatment.
