located within the Serianan Asteroid Belt in grid 867-3A4, the Gulch is the nickname of a huge cavern located within the largest of the asteroids. First documented by Korren Starchaser and his team, the Gulch was unusual in that it appeared to be partly natural and partly excavated by some alien race. On the surface of the asteroid were several runes and glyphs, many of which dwarfed Starchaser's scout ship, the Jedi Dreamer. Detailed examination of the runes showed that they had been tooled into the surface of the asteroid. However, anyalsis of the composition of the asteroid revealed that the body is made up of extremely dense and resistant minerals. In the rear of the cavern was an alcove that contained several alien statues. This alcove was carved out the rock of the asteroid, which is all the most astonishing given the dense nature of its composition. The five statues could easily be carried by a human, but were impounded by the New Republic before further analysis could be done.
