"I engaged the jump drive for a trip in outsystem. It took about two hours. When I got out, it was 200 years later."
―Bosbit Matarcher on a hyperspace jump he engaged in 212 BBY that transported him to 22 BBY[src]

212 before the Battle of Yavin (BBY) was a year during the Great Peace of the Republic era. Beginning nearly 800 years previously, this time period marked widespread exploration into the Outer Rim by the Galactic Republic and the opening of the Deep Core. In 212 BBY, Delemede–native Bosbit Matarcher attempted to make a hyperspace jump in a recently bought Delemedian starhopper. However, Matarcher's starship had a faulty relativistic shield—which guarded against the strange bends in time and space associated with hyperspace travel—and during the jump, Matarcher was transported 190 years into the future.

ProemEdit

In 1000 BBY, the New Sith Wars between the Galactic Republic and the Brotherhood of Darkness came to an end. The Supreme Chancellor at the time, Tarsus Valorum, reorganized the Senate through the Ruusan Reformations,[7] and the Jedi Order became a branch of the Republic Judicial Department.[8]

The galaxy in 212 BBYEdit

By the year 212 BBY, the Great Peace of the Republic era—the period of time that followed the Ruusan Reformation—was nearly eight hundred years in the making.[9] The Republic continued its expansion into the Deep Core and previously uncharted Wild Space areas that later became part of the Outer Rim Territories.[7]

Around 212 BBY, Bosbit Matarcher, a thirty-five standard year old Human male from the then–shoddy planet of Delemede, bought a Delemedian starhopper. Thinking he had gotten a good deal for the starship, Matarcher boarded his starhopper and left Delemede, hoping to make a quick jump outsystem. However, when Matarcher engaged his vessel's hyperdrive, the ship's relativistic shield, which protected the ship from the irregular bends in time and space associated with hyperspace travel, malfunctioned.[1]

ImpactEdit

Following 212 BBY, the Republic continued its expansion, and the Great Peace of the Republic lasted for over 150 years. Meanwhile, when Matarcher emerged from hyperspace, he discovered that much had changed for the galaxy. Although Matarcher experienced only a two hour journey, for the rest of the galaxy, 190 years had passed, putting Matarcher in the year 22 BBY,[1] the last year of the Great Peace of the Republic era.[9]

Matarcher, now a 225 standard year old man, gained brief notoriety for the extremely unusual malfunction that sent him 190 years into the future. Matarcher received a minor interview by the HoloNet News, during which Matarcher stated he would be returning to Delemede, but this time, he would be flying transit. Matarcher also said he was happy the malfunction had occurred; when he had left Delemede in 212 BBY, the planet was in a state in disrepair, but in 22 BBY, Delemede was a thriving.[1]

Notable eventsEdit

  • Circa 212 BBY, Bosbit Matarcher unintentionally time travels 190 years into the future, due to faulty relativistic shielding on his recently bought starship.[1]

Behind the scenesEdit

212 BBY was first indirectly mentioned in the in-universe HoloNet News Vol. 531 48 article, "225-year Old Man's Secret? Time Dilation." In the article, it is stated that Matarcher was thirty–five standard years old, and upon time traveling, was 225 standard years old, signifying that Matarcher traveled 190 years through time. Since the article is set in the year 22 BBY, it can then be assumed that Matarcher's journey began around the year 212 BBY. 212 BBY was again indirectly mentioned in Bosbit Matarcher's entry in The Complete Star Wars Encyclopedia.

  2. The Complete Star Wars Encyclopedia establishes the endpoints of this era as 1000 BBY and 22 BBY.
  3. Star Wars: Dawn of the Jedi Book Two—Prisoner of Bogan establishes the year 36,453 BBY as the date of the Tho Yor Arrival, which is the zero point of the Tho Yor Arrival dating system, meaning the difference between the calendar based on the Battle of Yavin and the TYA year-notation system is 36,453 years. This date is derived from simple math based upon other confirmed dates.
  4. The New Essential Chronology states that the Great Hyperspace War began in 5000 BBY, which is 1,347 BTC in Star Wars: The Old Republic's Galactic Timeline, so the difference between the calendar based on the Battle of Yavin and the calendar based on the Treaty of Coruscant is 3,653 years. This date is derived using simple math based upon other confirmed dates.
  5. The New Essential Chronology states that the Ruusan Reformation occurred in 1000 BBY, which is the zero point of the calendar based on the Ruusan Reformation, so the difference between the calendar based on the Battle of Yavin and the Ruusan Reformation's year-notation system is 1,000 years. This date is derived using simple math based upon other confirmed dates.
  6. The Essential Atlas places the Battle of Yavin, the zero point in the Galactic Standard Calendar, in 35:3 under the Great ReSynchronization dating system. The Essential Atlas also places the Battle of Selaggis on 43:2:28 and the Battle of Dathomir on 43:3:21. The Essential Guide to Warfare and The Essential Atlas both place the Battle of Dathomir in 8 ABY. The Essential Guide to Warfare also places the Battle of Selaggis in 7 ABY, confirming the placement of the division between each Galactic Standard Calendar year as the third month in the Great ReSynchronization year. Thus, there is a two-month gap between the two dating systems, and the first two months of a GrS year are the last two of the preceding Galactic Standard Calendar year. The Great ReSynchronization was instituted in 35 BBY, so there is a total difference of 35 years and 2 months between the two systems. This article's date is therefore derived from simple math based on this reference explanation.
