- "Sir, the Electrum has reverted to realspace."
- ―A technician, to Wilhuff Tarkin
Realspace, also called normal space, or simply space, was the dimension in which all of the galaxy's residents lived. Because travel using sublight engines within realspace was slow, sentients found a technological way to access the shadow dimension known as hyperspace. A starship equipped with a hyperdrive would "jump" from realspace into hyperspace, and "revert" from hyperspace to realspace.
