The Cron Drift was a giant asteroid field located just "south" of the Perlemian Trade Route within the Auril Sector of the Outer Rim Territories. It once was a small nebula of considerable beauty and dynamics; however, during the Great Sith War, a sabotaged ancient Sith device used to manipulate matter within the cores of stars caused the detonation of the nearby Cron Cluster stellar group.

All planetary bodies in the vicinity were smashed, with the debris becoming scattered throughout the region. The greatest concentration formed the famed asteroid field itself, and it held a reputation as a hiding place for all sorts of activity such as pirating, looting, and smuggling of illicit materials. The worlds of Dalos IV, Belderone, Kulthis, Ossus, and Nespis VIII were the closest to the Drift.

During the Galactic Civil War. The Alliance to Restore the Republic made a rendezvous to a CR90 corvette called Jeffrey. It was supplied in the Cron Drift by the Delta-class DX-9 stormtrooper transport Magnus in order to man the AX-235 outpost, and was also delivered some stolen Imperial communications satellites by the BFF-1 bulk freighter Ojai.

An Imperial force consisting of four transports, escorted by Assault Gunboats attacked the rendezvous but were defeated by X-wings flown by Keyan Farlander and Naeco, allowing the transfer to take place. The satellites proved essential in discovering the Death Star I project

Han Solo and Chewbacca tried a clotheslegging scheme in the Cron Drift in 2 BBY. Apparently near the Cron Drift and Auril sector was the Cronese Mandate and the Tion Cluster.
