Located in the remote Vassek system of the galaxy's Outer Rim Territories, Vassek 3 was a moon that orbited the planet Vassek. Its landscape was marked by craggy, moss-covered canyons filled with dense fog.
During the Clone Wars, a conflict fought between the Galactic Republic and the Confederacy of Independent Systems, a Republic task force traced a frigate stolen by Viceroy Nute Gunray of the Trade Federation to General Grievous' fortress on Vassek 3. Infiltrating the castle, it was all but destroyed by the Kaleesh warlord and his forces, with the survivors, Jedi Master Kit Fisto and his astromech droid, R6-H5, only narrowly escaping.
Behind the scenesEdit
Vassek 3 first appeared, albeit unidentified, in the opening newsreel of "Rookies," the fifth episode of the canon animated series Star Wars: The Clone Wars' first season, which originally aired on October 24, 2008.
