"But what we choose to remember is the story of the war as told through the […] fleet element that held the line at the Second Battle of Brightday."
―Supreme Chancellor Nagratha[4]

Brightday was an astronomical object[3] located in the Brightday system,[1] in the Northern Dependencies portion of[2] the Inner Rim.[1] Brightday shared its name with the nearby Expansion Region celestial body Upper Brightday.[3]

During the Waymancy Storm[4] of 7811 BBY,[3] Brightday was the site of an engagement known as the Second Battle of Brightday. During the battle, a Galactic Republic fleet element held the line, which Republic's Supreme Chancellor Nagratha later noted as one of the heroic moments of the war at a speech delivered on the 25th anniversary of Victory in the Waymancy Storm in 7786 BBY.[4]

More than a decade before the Clone Wars of 22 BBY19 BBY, the commanding officer Darsius deployed a line of cruisers at Brightday. In time, the young Human Wullf Yularen quizzed his father, the legendary Planetary Security Forces officer Thull Yularen, on how Darsius accomplished the feat at Brightday. The astronomical object later fell within the borders of the New Republic between 12 ABY and 13 ABY.[3]

Behind the scenes[]

Brightday was introduced in the 2012 reference book The Essential Guide to Warfare by Jason Fry and Paul R. Urquhart.[3] The StarWars.com Online Companion to the 2009 reference book The Essential Atlas placed the Brightday system, and therefore the celestial body itself, in grid square K-8.[1]
