"I call on Jedi for judgment."
―A Barabel, whose species had deep respect for the Jedi, calling the help of Jedi Luke Skywalker during a dispute with a Rodian[src]

902 before the Battle of Yavin (BBY) was a year in the era known as the Great Peace of the Republic. The time period began nearly one hundred years earlier and featured the Galactic Republic's settlement into previously unexplored regions of the Outer Rim Territories. Around 902 BBY, the millennia-long Barabel War, a bloody conflict for hunting grounds, escalated to the entire Barabel population of the planet Barab I. The intervention of Jedi Knight Noga-ta brought an end to the dispute.

ProemEdit

Around 4500 BBY,[9] stemming from a dispute over prime hunting grounds, a bloody civil conflict[10] known as the Barabel War[6] erupted on Barab I, homeworld of the Barabel species. The war continued for millennia,[10] until a peace agreement was settled by passing Jedi, around 902 BBY.[7] In 1000 BBY, the New Sith Wars, fought between the Jedi and the Sith, came to an end. Then-current Supreme Chancellor Tarsus Valorum reorganized the Galactic Senate through the Ruusan Reformations,[11] and the Jedi Order became a branch of the Republic Judicial Department.[12]

The galaxy in 902 BBYEdit

The year 902 BBY was also known as 2,751 after the Treaty of Coruscant (ATC),[3] a peace agreement that brought an end to the Great Galactic War in 3653 BBY.[11] 902 BBY was also the same as 98 after the Ruusan Reformation,[4] and 867 before the Great ReSynchronization (BrS), a year-notation system established in 35 BBY.[5] By 902 BBY, the Great Peace of the Republic, the era that began with the Ruusan Reformation, was nearly one hundred years in the making.[13] The Republic expanded further into the galactic Deep Core and unexplored Wild Space regions that were later reorganized into the Outer Rim Territories.[11]

Around 902 BBY, in the final stages of the Barabel War, the population of Barab I was divided into two opposing camps,[14] supporting the hunters[6] of two of the larger clans disputing the rights of access to certain choice hunting grounds.[15][16] The disagreement threatened to erupt into full-scale butchery,[17] as the entire species was destined to join the coming battle.[6] The clans formed two armies that were each bent on the ultimate destruction of their enemies, but before the final battle,[9] a group of passing Jedi Knights intervened.[6] The Jedi, including the Ithorian Jedi explorer Noga-ta,[10] listened to both sides and passed a fair judgment.[6] In accordance the Jedi decree, clans always had to share hunting grounds, and a clan's largest kill of the night had to be given to the head of another clan.[15] They settled a peace agreement that ended the Barabel War.[7]

ImpactEdit

The Republic continued its expansion, and the Great Peace of the Republic lasted for nearly nine hundred more years. Later in the era, economic forces began to shape the Republic, as companies bought Tingel Arm star systems to establish the Corporate Sector.[12] The Jedi explorers did not record Barab I in the galactic registry, so the planet remained uncharted, until the scouts of the Planetary Safaris, an Imperial corporation organizing exotic hunting expeditions, discovered the Barabels.[17]

The Barabels never forgot the Jedi decree and never again fought over hunting territory.[15] They developed a rich mythology around the "great warriors from beyond the clouds,"[16] although the different stories sometimes mentioned a band of Jedi, sometimes a single Jedi with companions. Noga-ta was immortalized on pots[15] and wall carvings that were discovered by researchers hundreds of years later,[7] although some Barabels—who believed that outsider's meddling into the sacred past would rouse the spirits of the dead—made their efforts much harder.[15]

When the first Imperial scouts arrived at the planet, the Barabels treated them with respect, believing the Jedi heroes of their legends had returned "from beyond the clouds."[16][15] During the reign of the Galactic Empire, even in face of persecution, many Barabels refused to denounce the Jedi or the Force. They referred to the legend of the Barabel War,[6] when the Jedi stopped a thousand years of slaughter.[10] From that event onward, the Barabels had a deep respect for the Jedi[6] and accepted the judgment of a Jedi in any dispute great or small.[17]

Notable eventsEdit

  • Around 902 BBY, Jedi explorer Noga-ta ended the Barabel War by settling a peace agreement over hunting grounds. (Approximate date)[7]

Behind the scenesEdit

The year 902 BBY was only indirectly mentioned in The Complete Star Wars Encyclopedia, which stated that Noga-ta settled the dispute among the Barabels "about 900 years before the Galactic Civil War."[7] Since the Galactic Civil War began in 2 BBY,[12] this article treats this description as the basis for the year. The end of the Barabel war had been mentioned in various earlier source materials describing the Barabels, but these sources provided no exact time frame for the event. In 2006, The New Essential Guide to Alien Species was the first to provide a date for the event by stating that a civil war erupted on Barab I around 4,500 BBY, and Jedi "mediated a truce that is never broken."[9] However, in 2008, The Complete Star Wars Encyclopedia placed the event around 902 BBY. In 2009, the Galaxy at War roleplaying sourcebook solved the discrepancy by stating that the civil war lasted for millennia and was settled "centuries before the Empire."[10]

Notes and referencesEdit

  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. 3.0 3.1 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. 4.0 4.1 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. 5.0 5.1 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.
