This timeline gives dates for events such as the Force Wars of Tython, the founding of the Jedi Order, the founding of the Republic, the Jedi Order joining the Republic, the 2nd Great Schism, etc., according to a calendar system known as BTC, which presumably stands for Before Treaty of Coruscant. The notability of this is that it gives precise dates for many events on Wookieepedia which currently only have approximate dates. It places the Force Wars at 25,753 BBY, the establishment of the Jedi Order at 25,783 BBY, the founding of the Republic at 25,053 BBY, the Jedi Order joining the Republic at 25,000 BBY, confirms the 2nd Great Schism at 7,000 BBY, the establishment of the Dark Lords of the Sith at 6,900 BBY, the Great Hyperspace War at 5,000 BBY.
I thought this might be of use in updating some of the articles. Barringer 06:15, 29 March 2009 (UTC)
The only date that seems to be an issue is the founding of the Jedi Order, which is supposed to happen after the Force Wars but the date they give us makes it take place before. I'm guessing its a typo so I wouldn't suggest using it. Xicer9(Rawr) 06:27, 29 March 2009 (UTC)
I was about to note the same thing. It definitely appears to be a typo since it appears later along the timeline than the Force Wars, despite it claiming to be before. Barringer 06:29, 29 March 2009 (UTC)
The first five dates are all noted as circa. They're not exact dates. - Lord Hydronium 07:00, 29 March 2009 (UTC)
Either you have counted badly or the typo has been corrected. The timeline gives the date of the Force War as 22,140 BTC, which would make it as 25,793 BBY; and the date of the establishment of the Jedi Order is 22,130 BTC =>25,783 BBY. The Jedi Order was established ten years after the Force War, everything's fine. QuiGonJinnThere's always a bigger fish. 10:49, 31 March 2009 (UTC)
It has been corrected. I was not the only one who noticed this obvious mistake in the timeline, so it wasn't the calculation. Thanks for the move, anyway. Mauser 12:16, 31 March 2009 (UTC)
