"I remember the ships. The last stand of the Republic. The tattered remnants of our fleet, the largest we could gather, but it was damaged, weakened and vulnerable. The Mandalorians couldn't resist. They tore into us like beasts, shredding our ships to scrap as we fought back."
Bao-Dur[src]

The year 3960 before the Battle of Yavin (BBY), as it was known in the Galactic Standard Calendar, saw the end of the Mandalorian Wars between the Galactic Republic and the Mandalorian warrior culture. Also known as the year 32,503 After the Tho Yor Arrival (TYA), the year 307 before the Treaty of Coruscant (BTC), the year 2,960 before the Ruusan Reformation, and the year 3,925 before the Great ReSynchronization (BrS), the year included the Battle of Malachor V, where Revan defeated Mandalore the Ultimate in single combat and the activation of the Mass Shadow Generator destroyed most of the Mandalorian forces. From the dying Mandalore, Revan discovered the Mandalorians had been influenced by the Sith, and his search for answers led to his and Malak's corruption at the hands of the Sith Emperor. The year's events had powerful ramifications, as they led to the Jedi Civil War of 3959-3956 BBY and the later Dark Wars.

  5. Star Wars: Dawn of the Jedi Volume 2—Prisoner of Bogan establishes the year 36,453 BBY as the date of the Tho Yor Arrival, which is the zero point of the Tho Yor Arrival dating system, meaning the difference between the calendar based on the Battle of Yavin and the TYA year-notation system is 36,453 years. This date is derived from simple math based upon other confirmed dates.
  6. The New Essential Chronology states that the Great Hyperspace War began in 5000 BBY, which is 1,347 BTC in Star Wars: The Old Republic's Galactic Timeline, so the difference between the calendar based on the Battle of Yavin and the calendar based on the Treaty of Coruscant is 3,653 years. This date is derived using simple math based upon other confirmed dates.
  7. The New Essential Chronology states that the Ruusan Reformation occurred in 1000 BBY, which is the zero point of the calendar based on the Ruusan Reformation, so the difference between the calendar based on the Battle of Yavin and the Ruusan Reformation's year-notation system is 1,000 years. This date is derived using simple math based upon other confirmed dates.
  8. The Essential Atlas places the Battle of Yavin, the zero point in the Galactic Standard Calendar, in 35:3 under the Great ReSynchronization dating system. The Essential Atlas also places the Battle of Selaggis on 43:2:28 and the Battle of Dathomir on 43:3:21. The Essential Guide to Warfare and The Essential Atlas both place the Battle of Dathomir in 8 ABY. The Essential Guide to Warfare also places the Battle of Selaggis in 7 ABY, confirming the placement of the division between each Galactic Standard Calendar year as the third month in the Great ReSynchronization year. Thus, there is a two-month gap between the two dating systems, and the first two months of a GrS year are the last two of the preceding Galactic Standard Calendar year. The Great ReSynchronization was instituted in 35 BBY, so there is a total difference of 35 years and 2 months between the two systems. This article's date is therefore derived from simple math based on this reference explanation.
