"As the number of hostile systems decreases. We are combining our forces into slower-moving but more powerful units. Six of these fleets will deploy along the Corellian Trade Spine, positioning them for rapid relocation to the Western Reaches…"
Gial Ackbar[7]

The Corellian Trade Spine was one of the galaxy's five super-hyperroutes. Beginning at the planet Corellia in the Core Worlds, it intersected with the Rimma Trade Route at Yag'Dhul in the Inner Rim, and the Hydian Way near Terminus. Established 25,000 years before the Battle of Yavin, but not fully formed until 19,500 years later, the Corellian Trade Spine played a major role in galactic history, though less so than the Corellian Run. Like its cousin, however, it ran through every region of the galaxy, taking in the Ison Trade Corridor and the Greater Javin.[8]

The Spine passed through the Anoat sector of the Outer Rim Territories, where the Trade Spine League operated as a powerful union and privateer network. The desert planet Mataou acted as a primary entry point for starships leaving the Corellian Trade Spine to enter the Ison Trade Corridor in the Anoat sector.[3]


The Devaronian species were among the early explorers along what became the Corellian Trade Spine hyperspace route.[9] During the Galactic Civil War, the Alliance to Restore the Republic's 61st Mobile Infantry lost eight of their own, who were lost during a freighter raid. They held a funeral onboard the Thunderstrike while in a hyperlane three light-years from the spine.[10]

Behind the scenes[]

The Corellian Trade Spine was first created in Star Wars Legends for Galaxy Guide 2: Yavin and Bespin, a sourcebook written by Jonatha Ariadne Caspian and released by West End Games in 1989.[11] Its first mention in canon came in in the 2015 novel Battlefront: Twilight Company, written by Alexander Freed.[10]
