Galactic divisions

The Galaxy is divided concerning the type of life it holds and the distance from the core.


The Core

The Core can be divided into three regions: The Deep Core, the Core Proper and the Colonies (sometimes considered a separate region).


Deep Core

It has countless stars packed together in a relatively small area, so hyperspace travel is slow and dangerous. The intense radiation and relatively young stars mean that it has very few habitable worlds compared to the rest of the galaxy. The few known worlds of the Deep Core include Byss (whereto the disembodied consciousness of Emperor Palpatine fled after his death at the Battle of Endor, according to Expanded Universe literature), Khomm, Ruan, and the Empress Teta system. The Koornacht Cluster is one particularly dense area of stars, located at the edge of the Deep Core bordering on the Core Worlds, and contains numerous planets including N'Zoth, the homeworld of the Yevetha.

Core Worlds

The Core Worlds are the known worlds, or planetary systems, that are near the core of the Star Wars galaxy. The core worlds are the richest, most populated worlds in the Star Wars Galaxy, and it was the Core Worlds that first formed the Old Republic. Coruscant is by far the most important of the Core worlds and is said to be the source of the first humans. However, there are numerous other worlds which can be found in this dense region of the galaxy. Coruscant (pronounced //) is the name of a fictional planet in the Star Wars universe. ...


The Core Worlds contain millions of systems, including Coruscant, Alderaan, Corellia, Chandrila, Kuat, Nubia, Duro, and Ciutric. Less dense than the Deep Core, the Core Worlds are the center of commerce and society in the galaxy as they lie on the intersection of the many great hyperspace lanes. The Colonies include Commenor, Cato Neimoidia, and Bilbringi, as well as numerous other worlds which have served as stage for the great Galactic Civil War in the fight between the Empire and the Rebel Alliance.

Colonies

The Colonies were some of the first planets settled outside the Core Worlds by the Republic, especially the region known as "The Slice", defined by the edges of the Perlemian Trade Route and the Corellian Run. There were also Worlds in the Colonies that were founding members of the Republic. After 25,000 years, the worlds are almost as influential as the Core, being just as industrialized and with firmly established cultures, with many worlds supporting vast shipyard complexes. Important manufacturing planets are Fondor, where the Super Star Destroyer Executor was built, and Balmorra, a major TIE producer. Arkania is home to the Arkanians, a near Human species skilled at genetics and cybernetics. Mrlsst, home of the Mrlssi, is a famous university world also located in the Colonies. Many of Kuat Drive Yards' factory worlds are located here, as are the Neimoidian purse worlds, Neimoidia, Cato Neimoidia, Deku Neimoidia, and Koru Neimoidia.

Outer Territories

Inner Rim

The Inner Rim is the section of the galaxy between the Colonies and the Expansion Region. Some planets in this galactic ring include Rendili and Omar. During the growth of the Republic, the Inner Rim was colonized after the Colonies region, and was then known simply as "The Rim". Later, the Expansion Region was opened up to colonization. A sudden boom after this led to the establishment of two more regions, the Mid Rim and Outer Rim, and saw the "Rim" renamed as the Inner Rim.


Expansion Region

The Expansion Region is precisely what it sounds like; it is territory colonized during a sudden expansion from the Inner Rim territories. During most of the Old Republic, it was considered a vast field of raw materials. The Empire treated the Expansion Region as an area to obtain slaves, and strip-mined the entire belt of worlds. Mandalore, Nkllon, and Kalarba are planets located within this region. - Senator Palpatine Form of Government Federal Republic Official language Basic Capital Coruscant Head of Government Chancellor Establishment c. ...

Other planets in the area include Naboo, Ithor, and Ord Mantell. Not long after the Battle of Endor, most of it was seized by the Imperial warlord Admiral Teradoc. Naboo is a fictitious planet in the fictional Star Wars universe with a mostly green terrain and which is the homeworld of two societies: the Gungans who dwell in underwater cities and the humans who live in colonies on the surface. ...

Outer Rim

Main article: Outer Rim Territories

The Outer Rim Territories is the outermost part of the explored portion of the Star Wars galaxy. During the long period of the Galactic Republic, the Outer Rims were very isolated, this is due to many uncharted regions and planets, untouched for countless centuries. Because of this isolation from other worlds, it became a breeding ground for criminals and scum. Seen in Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hope, the Galactic Empire's presence is made known in the area. This region was free of Imperial control, though this usually meant criminal lords like Jabba the Hutt had free reign. Outer Rim worlds include Dantooine, Tatooine, Yavin, Hoth, Endor, Dagobah, Xagobah, Bakura, Ryloth, Bogden and many others. The Death Star was created to reign in the Outer Rim, as was Grand Moff Tarkin's jurisdiction.

Wild Space

Wild Space is on the frontier of the known galaxy, and is the blurred edge separating civilization from the Unknown Regions. Planets in this region lie so far from the galactic centers of power that they are virtually ignored. Very few people have ventured into Wild Space and into the Unknown Regions. Technically speaking, Wild Space extends beyond the galaxy in some areas. Outbound Flight, a Jedi project to explore realms beyond the known galaxy, crossed through Wild Space en route to the Unknown Regions. The Outbound Flight Project was commissioned by the Jedi, most notably Jedi Master Jorus CBaoth in the waning days of the Old Republic, after Palpatine became Chancellor, but prior to the Clone Wars. ...


Unknown Regions

The Unknown Regions lie beyond the region known as Wild Space. They are uncharted by any of the known galactic powers.


After the Mandalorian War Revan and Malak led a fifth of the Republic fleet, claiming to be searching for more Mandalorians, into this region. It should be noted that these regions were considered unknown at the time, but were later included in the outer rim because the "unknown" regions are only uncharted regions for the given time. The fleet vanished for months and was presumed lost. Later the fleet returned with ships of alien design and started attacking the Republic. This lead to the start of the Jedi Civil War. After the Jedi Civil War, Revan left into these unknown regions again and has not returned since. It is rumored he went to fight the true Sith. Little is known of where he went or when Revan will return, but many are waiting. The Jedi Exile went to the Unknown Regions 5 years later to help Revan with this task. The fate of the two Jedi remains unknown, though Jedi Master Kreia remarked that the "true Sith" lay in this area, and were presumably hostile to the rest of the galaxy at the time.

Csilla, home to the Chiss, is one of the only known inhabited planets in the Unknown Regions. The Chiss Grand Admiral, Thrawn, was tasked by Emperor Palpatine to lead a pacification mission into the Unknown Regions, a duty that Thrawn carried out until five years after the Emperor's death. Furthermore, the ancient insectoid Killik race inhabits this region of space; their territory borders Chiss space. Rakata Prime, the Rakatan homeworld, is also located in the Unknown Regions. Another species that seems to live in the Unknown Regions are the Vagaari.

Corporate Sector Authority — The government of a free enterprise fiefdom known as the Corporate Sector that was formed in 490 BBY to free the Republic lawmakers and the Corporate moneymakers from their differences. During the height of Emperor Palpatine's rule of the galaxy, the Corporate Sector Authority comprised of 30,000 star systems. Shortly after the battle of Hoth, the Corporate Sector found it profitable to develop technologies for the Rebel Alliance. At a research space station called Pondunt, Corporate Sector scientists created the Mag Pulse warhead. This warhead could temporarily neutralize the weapon systems on an enemy ship. They then handed the Mag Pulse over to the Rebels, who in turn used it in a raid at an Imperial Research space station. A Rebel B-Wing carrying the warhead was captured in the fight. An analysis of the Mag Pulse traced its origins to the Corporate Sector. Emperor Palpatine dispatched Grand Admiral Zaarin to capture the Pondunt station, seize the Mag Pulse schematics, and thereby teach the Corporate Sector a lesson. The Imperial raid was a success, and afterwards relations between the Corporate Sector and the Galactic Empire were very strained. During the Yuuzhan Vong invasion, the Corporate Sector isolated itself from the Galaxy.

Tion Hegemony — Also known as the Ancient and Honorable Union of the Tion Hegemony, this sector of the Tion Cluster is a collection of 27 star systems.

Various established 'ways' pass through the sectors.


Trade and hyperspace routes

The Sisar Run is one of the most minor trade routes in the galaxy. On the other hand, the Corellian Run is large, originating in the Corellian System and ending somewhere in Wild Space. Another route that starts in Corellia is the Corellian Trade Spine, which crosses the Rimma Trade Route at Yag'Dhul, and branches into the Ison Trade Corridor in the Outer Rim.

Glitterstim spice is a psychoactive substance harvested in the Star Wars universe, with both intoxicating and telepathic effects. ...


A well-known but confusing description of the Kessel Run is made by Han Solo in A New Hope when he boasts to have made the run with the Millennium Falcon in "less than twelve parsecs." A parsec is a unit of distance, not a measure of time or speed. Some have explained this apparent error by postulating the presence of a black hole cluster (The Maw) close to Kessel, which is used by pilots to shorten the distance of the run. Indeed, Lucas reveals in the DVD commentary of A New Hope that Solo was referring to distance. Lucas points out that a shorter distance traveled results in a shorter time. In the Star Wars galaxy, he explains, racers of the Kessel Run had the goal of plotting the shortest distance through space in order to reach this shorter time.

In the fictional Star Wars Expanded universe, The Maw is a seemingly unstable and mostly unnavigable cluster of black holes. ...


According to Expanded Universe literature, navigating the Maw black hole cluster is extremely hazardous. Ships making runs must take long complex courses to avoid the dangerous singularities and gravity distortions of the cluster. However, it is speculated that Solo brazenly shaved by the gravity wells, thus achieving a run under a distance of 12 parsecs where a safer route would be much longer. This shorter run, by necessity, would require a faster ship than more circuitious routes, since a slower ship would not be able to resist the gravitational pull of the closer black-holes. This article or section does not cite its references or sources. ... Singularity has several different meanings: mathematical singularity - a point where a mathematical function goes to infinity or is in certain other ways ill-behaved gravitational singularity - an infinity occurring in an astrophysical model, involving infinite curvature (a mathematical singularity) in the space/time continuum technological singularity - a predicted point in...


The question of whether Solo was boasting about the speed of his ship, or his skillful abilities at piloting is still debated amongst fans. One could also look at the wording of the quote and consider Solo may have been mentioning another aspect of the Falcon's fame that is unrelated to its speed - that she earned prestige for surviving a dangerous short-distanced Kessel Run, as well as being "fast".


A more straightforward explanation is that George Lucas, in writing the script, did not remember or realize that parsecs are not time measurements. According to some sources, Lucas did realize this, but wished to portray Han Solo as an absent-minded braggart who simply did not know what he was talking about.[citation needed] The bemused reactions of Obi-Wan Kenobi and Luke Skywalker to Han's quip suggest that this could be the case.
