"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…"

The Corellian Trade Spine was a super-hyperroute named for the planet Corellia in the Core Worlds. During the Galactic Civil War, the Alliance to Restore the Republic's 61st Mobile Infantry held a funeral for eight of their own, who were lost during a freighter raid, onboard their CR90 corvette the Thunderstrike while in a hyperlane three light-years from the spine.[7] The desert planet Mataou, located in the Anoat sector of the Outer Rim Territories, acted as a primary entry point for starships leaving the Corellian Trade Spine to enter the Ison Trade Corridor.[3] The Corellian Trade Spine intersected with the Rimma Trade Route in the Inner Rim, and with the Hydian Way in the Outer Rim Territories.[1]


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

Behind the scenes[]
