The Alaris Expanse was an area of space in the outer part of the Kashyyyk system, located within the Slice portion of the Mid Rim. It contained the gas giant Alaris and its eight moons, including Alaris Prime. Between 39 BBY and 36 BBY, colonists of the Wookiee species traveled through the Alaris Expanse aboard the transport vessel Thalmussen to reach Alaris Prime and colonize it.
Behind the scenes
The Alaris Expanse was first mentioned in the introductory description of the Attichitcuk campaign in the 2001 LucasArts video game Star Wars: Galactic Battlegrounds, and was also shown in the introduction to the campaign's first level, "Moving and Attacking."
The campaign description labeled the Expanse as a group of planets in the Outer Rim Territories. The game's databank, however, placed Alaris Prime in the Kashyyyk system, which the 2009 reference book The Essential Atlas placed within the Mid Rim.
