The Gordian Reach was the name of an old hyperlane and later of the sector of space through which the route had run.


Gordian Reach

Location of the Reach to surrounding sectors.

When the Sith Lord Naga Sadow escaped from the Galactic Republic's forces towards the end of the Great Hyperspace War in 5000 BBY, he hid in the Gordian Reach, on the moon Yavin 4 of the Yavin system.[3] A millennium later, the Sith Lord Exar Kun used the temples Sadow built as his personal base during the Great Sith War.[4]

In 3955 BBY, Supreme Chancellor Tol Cressa assigned a G0-T0 infrastructure planning system to restore the area to its former glory. However the droids began a bloody coup, setting themselves up as dictators and seizing all 16 habitable worlds. After millions were slaughtered, Cressa sent a military task force to deal with the rogue droids.[5]

During the Clone Wars, Anakin Skywalker and Asajj Ventress fought a duel on Yavin 4.[6] Jedi Master Eeth Koth was captured by the Separatist General Grievous in the Arda system.[7]

It was represented by Quorl Matrin in the Imperial Senate, after the Galactic Empire rose to power.[8] Under the New Order, the Reach was part of Bright Jewel Oversector. Following the Battle of Yavin in 0 BBY, the entire sector was blockaded by the Galactic Empire in an attempt to bottle up the Alliance to Restore the Republic's headquarters in the Yavin system.[9]

After the Battle of Endor, the populations of many planets of the Reach were massacred in the Stenax Massacres, in which the Stenax destroyed the Imperial military outposts on many Reach worlds and also killed many non-Stenax civilians.[8]

Planets in the Gordian Reach included Arda-2, Yavin, Betshish, Glade, Jovan III, Krylon, Mazhar,[10] Pinoora, Setor, Torque, Vaal, and Wetyin's Colony. It also included 400100500260026 and the Vallusk Cluster.
