The Underground Mag-Lev was a colloquial term that referred to an organized resistance movement to the New Order that existed on Coruscant, the capital world of the newly-established Galactic Empire.


Established in the first few months after the end of the Clone Wars and the declaration of the New Order by Emperor Palpatine, the Underground Mag-Lev was part of the Whiplash resistance movement. Metaphorically resembling a mag-lev, the network's purpose and goal was to extract Jedi and other political "undesirables" from Coruscant to safety in the outer regions of the galaxy.

Behind the scenesEdit

The Underground Mag-Lev is a Star Wars version of the Underground Railroad, a loose network of people whose aim was to help slaves to flee captivity in the American South prior to the American Civil War.
