The Corthenia system was a star system located within the Corthenia sector of the Mid Rim[1] and New Territories regions.[2] It was connected via hyperlane to the Traval-Pacor and Tyan systems.[5]

The Corthenia system was home to the sentient Corthenian species.[3][4] The system fell within the borders of the New Republic by 12 ABY, when an attack by the forces of the Imperial Remnant resulted in a victory for the latter faction.[5]

Behind the scenes[]

The Corthenia system was first mentioned in the 2009 reference book The Essential Atlas, written by Jason Fry and Daniel Wallace, which placed it within grid square K-7.[2]
