this cantina was located on the planet Stend VI. There were two entrances to The Pits: via The Hive, and walking in through the door. Over time, as swoop gangs took hold of Stend VI's culture, those who walked into The Pits were considered "ants," something to be stepped on and swiped away. The main building was low to the ground, and housed the entertainment areas. The Hive, a honeycombed column, rose above the bar itself, providing places to park swoops and other vehicles. The lowest sections housed the bar and restuarants themselves, as well a repair facilities. Owned and operated by Blizz Pinnix, there was a section of The Pits dedicated to the trophies and awards he had won over his forty-year career. Adjacent to The Pits were two facilities: Kuda's Compound, which provided sales and service for repulsorlift vehicles; and the Raptor Run, which was a swoopracing course designed by Pinnix himself.
this swoopchasing course was developed by Blizz Pinnix, and was submitted to the governing body as a site for qualifying races during the height of the New Order.

Planet of the Amazons: The Tale of the Pirate Ship Mourning Glory
this series of memoirs, written by Grov Bricker, documented the treatment of the Corellian pirate and his crew after they were captured by a group of Hapan women, shortly before the Battle of Yavin. It was generally considered that these memoirs were written to appeal to popular notion that the Hapan women were "amazons", rather than an actual recounting of the pirate's experiences. It became one of those books that was wildly popular and remained on the best-seller lists for many months, although no being would admit to actually owning a copy. The portrayal of the Hapan female soldiers as cruel, militaristic beings was eventually refuted, after Leia Organa set out to Hapes to discuss an alliance with the Queen Mother during the early years of the New Republic.

Poggle the Lesser
this Geonosian grew up in the lowest of castes within the Stalgasin Hive, and was forced to work his way up the societal ladder through cunning and strength. Poggle hated Hadiss the Vaulted, and swore at an eearly age that he would overthrow Hadiss' rule. After causing several small uprisings, Poggle and his followers were arrested and forced to fight in the petrana-ki gladiator arenas, for the pleasure of Hadiss and his cronies. Only Poggle managed to survive, even defeating the acklay Hadiss kept as a surprise, and he assumed the role of Archduke of Geonosis. Shortly afterward, Poggle was contacted by Darth Sidious, who agreed to fund the rebellion against Hadiss in return for battle droid production facilities. Poggle agreed, and his own forces grew quickly with Sidious' assistance. On the Eve of Meckgin, shortly before the Battle of Naboo, Poggle defeated Hadiss and had the other Geonosian devoured by an acklay. He then set to work creating battle droid production facilities for the Trade Federation. It was during this time that Poggle grew to hate Nute Gunray, mainly for the Neimoidian's ineptitude. The failure of the Trade Federation to win the Battle of Naboo only deepened Poggle's hatred. Rather than waiting for new instructions, Poggle developed a superior version of the standard battle droid, shortly before the Clone Wars. In the wake of the Republic's victory at the Battle of Geonosis, Poggle and his lieutenants fled with the Separatists to several remote worlds, always trying to remain one step ahead of their Jedi pursuers. After hiding on Utapau under the protection of General Grievous, the Separatists were taken to Mustafar. It was there, after Darth Sidious finally lured Anakin Skywalker to the Darth Side of the Force, that the Separatist leaders met their deaths. Skywalker was dispatched to Mustafar by Sidious himself, with orders to eliminate them. Skywalker quickly beheaded Poggle, before setting off after the rest of the Separatist leaders.
