A simplified map of the galaxy.

"Those systems are beyond the Outer Rim, in Wild Space. Not on any map."
―Kanan Jarrus[src]

Wild Space was the name given to a vast cluster of unknown star systems on the very edge of the galaxy's rim.[1] It was located "off the edge of the map," where no one knew what was on the other side. In contrast, the so-called Unknown Regions were mapped but largely unexplored.[2]

The mysterious realm of Mortis was located in Wild Space, as were the planets Teth,[3] Indoumodo,[4] Thune,[5] and Lira San, the original homeworld of the Lasat species.[6]

Early historyEdit

The Lasat homeworld of Lira San was known to be located in Wild Space. It was separated from the rest of the galaxy by an imploded star cluster. The Lasat of Lira San colonized the planet Lasan at some point before the Age of the Empire. Eventually, contact between Lira San and Lasan was lost. Those Lasat living on Lasan came to believe that Lira San was a fabled Lasat sanctuary.[6]

Clone WarsEdit

With the outbreak of the Clone Wars, a conflict that pitted the Galactic Republic against the Confederacy of Independent Systems, exploration of Wild Space slowed considerably.[1] In 22 BBY, the Wild Space jungle world of Teth hosted a B'omarr Order Monastery, which the Separatist agent Asajj Ventress used to hide Rotta, the kidnapped son of Jabba Desilijic Tiure. As a result, the Jedi Knight Anakin Skywalker and his Padawan, Ahsoka Tano, were sent to Teth along with the clone troopers of Torrent Company in order to rescue Rotta.[7] The following year, the Hutt crime lord Ziro Desilijic Tiure, Jabba's uncle, was killed by his estranged former lover Sy Snootles, who retrieved Ziro's stolen Hutt Council records before he could sell it to the Republic.[8]

Wild Space was also known to be the location of an enigmatic planet called Mortis, which was home to a family of Force wielders known as the Father, the Daughter, and the Son. These three figures embodied the balance in the Force, the light side, and the dark side of the Force respectively. The Force wielders tried to convince Skywalker to fulfill his prophesied role as the Chosen One.[9] However, their plans were upended when the Son was corrupted by the dark side; setting in motion a chain of events which led to the deaths of the three Force wielders. Their realm existed outside of the realm of normal time and space.[10]

Three years later, the Republic emerged victorious. Its leader, Supreme Chancellor Sheev Palpatine, proclaimed himself Emperor, replacing the democratic union with his own Galactic Empire.[11]

Age of the EmpireEdit

During the reign of the Empire, travelers again traversed Wild Space. The new government's Survey Corps even took an interest in the furthest reaches of uncharted space. Demand for maps of Wild Space increased as a consequence, allowing cartographers to make a decent living by producing and selling them. Auric and Rhyssa Graf, two couple of married interplanetary explorers, spent fifteen years making maps of Wild Space, until their capture by Captain Visler Korda of the Imperial Navy.[1]

In 3 BBY, the Lasat rebel Garazeb Orrelios, the Spectres rebel cell, and the Lasat refugees Chava the Wise and Gron took part in a search for the legendary Lasat sanctuary of Lira San. Lira San lay in Wild Space and could only be reached by navigating through a collapsed star cluster. After being pursued by Imperial forces and a difficult trial, Orrelios managed to used his bo-rifle to guide the rebel starship Ghost through the maelstrom. Chava and Gron settled on Lira San, which they rediscovered to be the original Lasat homeworld.[6]

Later, Orrelios and the Mandalorian rebel Sabine Wren undertook a mission to Thune City on the Wild Space world of Thune to recover cargo containers and ships on behalf of the rebellion. During their mission, the two came into conflict with the criminal Garbis family.[12]

New RepublicEdit

Following the Battle of Endor, the pirate crew of Eleodie Maracavanya seized control of the Super Star Destroyer Annhilator. With an Imperial Navy warship under their control, Maracavanya came to be known as the "pirate ruler of Wild Space." In 5 ABY, Maracavanya planned to take advantage of the chaos in the wider galaxy by establishing a criminal empire in Wild Space built around individualism and greed.[13]

While searching for Chewbacca who had been captured by the Empire, Han Solo came under attack and lost contact with his wife Princess Leia Organa on the edge of Wild Space. Later, the New Republic pilots Norra Wexley and Wedge Antilles traveled to the last known coordinates of Han Solo. They were attacked by Commander Valent's Star Destroyer Scythe but were rescued by New Republic ships led by Commodore Kyrsta Agate, who had received intelligence about Valent from the mysterious Imperial source known as the Operator.[13]
