After the Battle of Yavin (ABY)Edit

Rebellion era (continued)Edit

The New Republic eraEdit

  • 22 ABY
    • Jacen and Jaina Solo join the Luke Skywalker's Jedi Praxeum on Yavin 4.
    • Their younger brother Anakin Solo joins the Junior Jedi Class of the Academy months later and befriends a young Human girl named Tahiri Veila. The two young trainees have several adventures including discovering the Golden Globe and the ancient Jedi Master Ikrit, accompanying their Melodie friend Lyric to her homeworld of Yavin 8 to undergo an important ceremony, visits to Dagobah to discover Anakin's future and the discovery of Kenobi's lightsaber and an ancient Jedi holocron at Bast Castle on Vjun. Anakin later returns to Coruscant where he attended school, developed his piloting skills, and studied under the careful tutelage of C-3PO.
    • Luke and Mara Jade Skywalker travel to the Unknown Regions where they join a Chiss/Empire of the Hand mission to locate the remains of the ill-fated Old Republic/Jedi expedition Outbound Flight. They discover it in an inaccessible region known as the Redoubt and also learn that the survivors of the Outbound Flight have founded a colony within the wreckage. This combined team also defeats a Vagaari attack.[160]
  • 23 ABY
    • Jacen and Jaina Solo fight against the Second Imperium which attempts to disrupt the peace between the New Republic and Imperial Remnant, as it has become known, and restart the Galactic Civil War.
    • Following the defeat of the Shadow Academy, the Jedi Academy is rebuilt. Anakin Solo also came to aid in the reconstruction efforts.
    • Leia Organa Solo resigns her post as Chief of State and the Bothan Borsk Fey'lya replaces her.

The New Jedi Order eraEdit

  • 35 ABY
    • Efforts to rebuild galactic civilization after the Yuuzhan Vong war continue, with many war-torn worlds still under reconstruction.
    • The Jedi, struggling to come to terms with a new role in the galaxy and a new philosophy on the Force are called upon to act as police and diplomats by the Galactic Alliance, despite the wishes of Luke Skywalker.
    • Luke Skywalker sees an image of his mother for the first time through R2-D2.
    • A mysterious alien race called the Killiks with a leader very strong in the Force, who are ancient enemies of the Chiss return, with some of the younger members of the Jedi interfering, and becoming part of their alien "Hive," physically and mentally joined to each other.
    • Voren Na'al publishes the New Essential Chronology.

The Legacy eraEdit

  • 44 ABY
    • Widespread slave uprisings spread throughout the galaxy, inspired by the Freedom Flight organization.
    • Galactic Alliance Chief of State Natasi Daala responds to these revolts with overwhelming and brutal force, leading to Imperial withdrawal from the Unification process.
    • The Jedi Order leads a coup to overthrow Daala, ending her reign and leading to her imprisonment. Luke Skywalker's exile is ended.
    • The dark side entity known as Abeloth manipulates the Galactic Senate to elect Rokari Kem, whom it possesses, as Chief of State. Chief of State Kem is used as a figurehead for Abeloth and the Lost Tribe of Sith to attempt to rule the galaxy.
    • At the Liberation of Coruscant, the Jedi Order defeats the Lost Tribe of Sith and Abeloth. Wynn Dorvan is elected as Chief of State in the aftermath.
    • The Jedi Order is commanded by the Galactic Senate to leave Coruscant. The Jedi Temple is abandoned and the Order relocates to the academy on Shedu Maad.

  • 127 ABY – The Sith–Imperial War
    • The Galactic Alliance, Jedi Order and Yuuzhan Vong complete a successful terraforming of the war devastated planet Ossus. As a result, Yuuzhan Vong terraforming technology is implemented on a hundred other planets. The One Sith sabotages the program, causing renewed hostility to the Yuuzhan Vong and distrust of the Jedi.
    • The resurgent Galactic Empire (formerly the Imperial Remnant) starts a secession movement against the Alliance, in part due to the failure of the Ossus Project.
    • The Empire declares war on the Alliance, claiming violations of the Treaty of Anaxes.
    • The Sith form an alliance with the Galactic Empire through the Director of Imperial Intelligence Nyna Calixte.

  66. Andur Sunrider leaves H'ratth for Ambria in 3999 BBY per Tales of the Jedi 3: The Saga of Nomi Sunrider, Part 1. The Tales of the Jedi Companion says that 2 years prior (4001 BBY), Andur went to H'ratth, and six years prior to that (4007 BBY), he saw the Force ghost of his grandfather Jev, who the Companion says disappeared on a mission a year prior to that (4008 BBY). If you start at 3999 and count back the number of years (2, then 6, then 1) you arrive at 4008 BBY, which has to be the year of Jev's death, given that he appeared to Andur in ghost form a year later (4007 BBY).
