- "Glorzo proposed a contest. The scavenger and I would head into the Vaal asteroid field—hopefully surviving more than two minutes. The first to bring back a stone from the Rukabi Major asteroid would win dear Holiday."
- ―Tharan Cedrax
The Vaal asteroid field consisted of several asteroid fields located in the Vaal system, intersecting the planet Vaal's orbit. In the year 0 BBY, Darth Vader's TIE Advanced x1 sustained damaged upon entering the Vaal asteroid field, casuing it to crash land on Vaal.
