"Sorry, Artoo, but I've never jumped into the Deep Core before. It's crowded in there and things move fast and this isn't a well-established route yet, so I think an abundance of caution is warranted."
Luke Skywalker, to R2-D2[src]

The Deep Core was a brightly lit region of the galaxy that lay at its very heart. A densely packed mass of stars and planets, the Deep Core was dangerous to navigate and largely left alone by galactic explorers.[1] At its center existed an ancient, supermassive black hole that bound the galaxy together.[2]


Midi-chlorian homeworld

The midi-chlorian homeworld in the Deep Core

Located in the Deep Core,[3] the Wellspring of Life was the birthplace of the midi-chlorians and the foundation of life itself.[4] During the Clone Wars, Jedi Master Yoda journeyed to the mystical Force planet at the behest of the spirit of Qui-Gon Jinn.[5]

By the sixth year of Emperor Sheev Palpatine's reign, the Galactic Empire controlled a part of that region referred to as the Deep Core Security Zone. Kren Blista-Vanee, a member of Palpatine's Imperial Ruling Council, had been instrumental to the creation of hyperspace routes into the star systems of the Deep Core.[6]

Following the Battle of Yavin, Luke Skywalker and Nakari Kelen traveled to the Deep Core moon of Fex to investigate a biological research ship belonging to Kelen Biolabs that had suddenly gone silent.[1]
