The Star Bridge is a space elevator linking the planet Trantor to the orbiting Trantor Station. The vision of Emperor Cleon I, the Star Bridge began construction during his reign and he was regretful that he would not live to see its completion. Visitors arriving on Trantor would enter cars aboard Trantor Station, then make the fourteen-hour journey to the surface of the planet.
During the rule of Cleon XII, the Star Bridge and Trantor Station was attacked by terrorists. A terrorist identified as being from Anacreon used a nano-lace explosive to blow up a car during the descent phase, severing the Star Bridge from the station. The Bridge fell, wrapping itself around the planet and destroying several levels of the city planet in a swath of destruction that left millions of Imperial citizens dead. The wound in the planet became known as the Scar.
