- "Old Republic records chronicle the Vultar Cataclysm, an event in which the activation of an artifact known as the Cosmic Turbine destroyed that system. I suspect this Turbine was of Celestial origin."
- ―Insmot Bowen
The structure was so large, it was mistaken for a planet until 4,250 BBY. Following the Third Great Schism, the Dark Jedi were driven off Coruscant. Retreating to the system, they discovered the artifact and attempted to harness its power, inadvertently destroying themselves and the entire solar system.
Behind the scenesEdit
In Part 1 of Star Wars: The Essential Guide to Warfare: Author's Cut, Insmot Bowen speculated that the Turbines were tractor-repulsors that were built to move entire planets and stars through hyperspace.
