The Pleiades was a galactic location. It contained Endymion, a planet in the Kalamith sector of the Outer Rim Territories that was the site of a skirmish between Jedi and Sith during a galaxy-wide war.
Behind the scenesEdit
The Pleiades was fleetingly mentioned for the 2010 book Star Wars Art: Visions as the home for the planet Endymion in Michael Haynes's artwork Skirmish on Endymion. According to Haynes' website, he originally meant for the Pleiades to be a constellation, although this information was ultimately absent from the final version of the book. In real-life astronomy, the Pleiades is an open star cluster located in the constellation of Taurus. A June 12, 2015 update to the Star Wars: The Essential Atlas Companion added an Endymion system in the Kalamith sector of the Outer Rim, though no mention of the Pleiades was made.
