The title of this article is conjectural.

Although this article is based on official information from the Star Wars Legends continuity, the actual name of this subject is pure conjecture.

Between 39 and 36 BBY[2] a resolution was passed by the Galactic Republic Senate to colonize the rediscovered moon of Alaris Prime in the Alaris Expanse, a planetary system in the Kashyyyk system.[1] Sometime between 59 BBY and 56 BBY,[3] the Wookiee explorers from the planet Kashyyyk who discovered the moon petitioned the Senate to give them the rights, and were represented by the Wookiee Chieftan Attichitcuk,[1] representing the whole Mytaranor sector.[4]

The Trade Federation also expressed interest in Alaris Prime, intending to use it as a trade center between other planets such as Kashyyyk, Kessel and Bimmisaari. After two decades of slowly dispensing the rights, the Senate awarded the moon to the Wookiees, and Attichitcuk was given the honor of leading the colonization effort for his role in securing them. The Trade Federation, however, ignored the Senate's ruling and landed on Alaris Prime illegally, forcing the Wookiees to fight for the world.[1] The Wookiees also colonized the other seven moons of Alaris.[4]

Behind the scenes[]

The resolution to give Alaris Prime's rights to the Wookiees was mentioned in the databank of the 2001 LucasArts video game Star Wars: Galactic Battlegrounds, in the entries for Alaris Prime and Attichitcuk.[1]

  3. The New Essential Chronology placed the Alaris Prime colonial war between 39 BBY and 36 BBY, and the Star Wars: Galactic Battlegrounds DataBank stated that the debate for the colonisation rights took place over a twenty year period. Therefore, the Discovery of Alaris Prime must have taken place between 59 BBY and 56 BBY.
