A map of the galaxy showing the major routes

A hyperlane, also known as a hyperroute, hyperway, hyperspace route, hyperspace lane, spacelane, star-route, trade route, or jump route, was an area of space that had been deemed safe for hyperspace travel. The largest were known as super-hyperroutes.

OverviewEdit

Hyperlanes were routes through space in which a spaceship could safely travel without colliding with a body in space, or some other phenomenon such as a black hole.[1] There were five major routes in the galaxy, with hundreds of secondary routes and thousands of minor ones. Scouting new hyperspace routes was an incredibly dangerous task for an explorer.

In many parts of the galaxy, hyperlanes required periodic re-entry into realspace to manually maneuver the ship towards the next hyper-point. Pirate raids were common in these spots. The Galactic Empire and other governments often sought to lessen this threat by constructing deep-space platforms at hyper-points. Mine fields and probe droids[2] were also deployed.
