The galaxy as it was commonly referred to was one of the many galaxies in the universe. Composed of a collection of stars, planets, other astronomical objects, it was originally formed by a supermassive black hole in its center.[4] The galactic disk would eventually span over 100,000 light years in diameter,[2] and become home to countless sentient species and star systems. The galaxy would serve as the setting for trade, politics and war throughout galactic history. In historical memory, the galaxy would see the rule of the Galactic Republic, Galactic Empire, First Order and others, and was home to the Force-using orders of the Jedi and Sith.[6]

Divided into regions, the Deep Core served as the innermost and most brightly lit region of space, while it was followed by the populous Core Worlds where the human species would begin.[7] It would be followed by the Colonies, Inner Rim, Expansion Region, Mid Rim and Outer Rim Territories. Areas of the galactic disk could be referred to as the galactic north, south, east and west, in which the Western Reaches existed in the galactic south.[8] The Unknown Regions existed to the galactic west, and remained largely unexplored throughout galactic history owing to many trade routes heading outwards towards the galactic east, while Wild Space referred to regions inhabited by sentient species but never fully charted, explored, and civilized.[5][3]

The Rishi Maze served as a companion galaxy.[9][10] Travel throughout the galaxy was made possible through the use of a hyperdrive to travel through hyperspace.[6]
