The Elathan were a sentient species native to the planet Elatha in the Stensen sector of the Outer Rim Territories. They had their first contact with the wider galaxy between the years 500–340 BBY, when they were visited by the Chu'unthor, a vast training ship operated by the Jedi Order. This first contact encounter garnered significant media attention across the galaxy.
Behind the scenesEditThe Elathan were created for the Power of the Jedi Sourcebook, a roleplaying game sourcebook published by Wizards of the Coast in 2002.

- ↑ 3.0 3.1 Jason Fry, co-author of The Essential Atlas, stated his intention to create homeworlds for numerous species based on context implied from their names. Elatha appears to be one such case. "I wouldn't get your hopes up re alien homeworlds, beyond simple stuff like the Planetnamian species getting a Planetnamia on the map or things Dan and I can account for with a relatively quick reference."
