Era(s)

Rise of the Empire era[7]

900 before the Battle of Yavin (BBY) was a year in the era known as the Great Peace of the Republic. During that period of time, the Galactic Republic explored parts of the Deep Core, and settlers colonized previously unexplored regions of the Outer Rim Territories. Around 900 BBY, the five families of the Quintad oligarchy arrived on the planet Eriadu and began remaking it into a polluted factory world.

Proem

Located at the intersection of the Rimma Trade Route, the Lipsec Run, and the Yankirk Route, the planet Eriadu enjoyed a certain level of importance from the time the first colonists arrived on the world. For centuries, Eriadu was famous more for shellwork jewelry than for its industrial power.[8]

In 1,000 BBY, the Galactic Republic narrowly escaped destruction as a conflict called the New Sith Wars, which had been fought between the Jedi and the Sith for a thousand years, came to an end. The Ruusan Reformation, a collection of reforms to restructure the Republic, was announced by Supreme Chancellor Tarsus Valorum, the Galactic Senate was reorganized,[6] and the Jedi Order was codified in Republic law as a branch of the Judicial Department.[9]

The galaxy in 900 BBY

The year 900 BBY was also known as 2,753 after the Treaty of Coruscant (ATC),[10] a peace agreement that brought an end to the Great Galactic War in 3,653 BBY.[6] 900 BBY was additionally the same as 100 after the Ruusan Reformation[11] and 865 before the Great ReSynchronization (BrS), a year-notation system established in 35 BBY.[12] The year was part of an era known as the Great Peace of the Republic, which began with the Ruusan Reformation one hundred years before.[13] In that period of time, the Republic further explored the Deep Core and charted regions of the galaxy that were then considered Wild Space, but which later became incorporated into the Outer Rim Territories.[6]

Around 900 BBY, five families of Corulag ancestry, known as the Quintad oligarchy, emigrated to Eriadu and began to remake the planet into a manufacturing giant.[6]

Impact

The Republic continued to expand, and the Great Peace of the Republic lasted for nearly nine hundred more years. Economic forces began to shape the Republic, as companies established the Corporate Sector from star systems acquired in the Tingel Arm.[9]

Under the leadership of the Quintad, Eriadu became an industrial powerhouse, the site of prestigious shipyards and the very model of an ambitious Rimworld.[8] The planet became a polluted factory world, and due to the increase of oceanic acidity, the flow-mollusk, a species that produced the material for Eriadu's delicate shellwork jewelry, became extinct.[6]

Notable events

  • The Quintad, five families native to the planet Corulag, emigrated to Eriadu. (Approximate date)[6]
  • Melusi Uprising (Approximate date)[14]

Behind the scenes

The year 900 BBY was first mentioned in Wizards of the Coast's 2004 roleplaying game supplement book Geonosis and the Outer Rim Worlds, in which Eriadu received an entry.[8] In 2010, The Essential Atlas also mentioned the year in its description of Eriadu and slightly expanded the impact of the Quintad's industrial expansions.[6]

Notes and references

  1. 1.0 1.1 The Complete Star Wars Encyclopedia establishes the endpoints of this era as 1000 BBY and 22 BBY.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
  4. 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.
  5. 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.
