The Shaltin system was a star system located in the Thanium Worlds sector of the galaxy's Outer Rim Territories[1] and Trans-Hydian regions.[2] It was the namesake of the Shaltin Tunnels hyperlane.[3][4]

Behind the scenesEdit

The Shaltin system was first mentioned in the 2009 reference book The Essential Atlas, written by Jason Fry and Daniel Wallace, which placed the system in grid square S-6.[3]

  2. 2.0 2.1 The Essential Atlas places the Shaltin system in grid square S-6. It also depicts territory falling in that grid square as being part of either the Trans-Hydian region (spinward from the Perlemian Trade Route super-hyperroute) or the Slice region (trailing from the Perlemian). SWCustom-2011 Star Wars: The Essential Atlas Online Companion on (article) (backup link) places the Shaltin system within the Thanium Worlds sector, which, in square S-6, is located spinward from the Perlemian, according to SWCustom-2011 Xim Week: The History of Xim and the Tion Cluster on (article) (backup link). Therefore, the Shaltin system must also be part of the Trans-Hydian.

Jason Fry, co-author of The Essential Atlas, stated his intention to create homeworlds for numerous species based on context implied from their names. Given this principle, this article makes a similar basic assumption for the Shaltin Tunnels in relation to the Shaltin system.
