"They speak many dialects but rely upon a common language that evolved on [sic] Delphidian Cluster to allow for peaceful trade."
―An artist's journal entry on the Delphidians[4]

The Delphidian Cluster was a stellar nursery located in the Mid Rim Territories near Wild Space.[1] It was situated in grid square I-15 of the Standard Galactic Grid.[2] The star cluster was home to the group of related species known as the Delphidians, who individually spoke a large number of dialects but also developed a common trade language,[1] Delphidian.[3]

Centuries before the Delphidian Cluster was discovered by the Galactic Republic, the Delphidians were a part of a brawling confederation.[1] The Delphidian pirate Sidon Ithano hailed from the cluster.[5] The Delphidian Cluster was eventually mentioned in an entry of an artist's journal dedicated to the Delphidians. The journal was eventually restored, expanded, and displayed at the Graf Archive[4] at some point no earlier than 34 ABY.[6]

Behind the scenes[]

The Delphidian Cluster was introduced in the 2016 reference book Star Wars: Aliens of the Galaxy by Jason Fry.[1]

  6. Star Wars: Alien Archive, which is presented as a restored in-universe journal, mentions Poe Dameron's mutiny against Amilyn Holdo, which is depicted in Star Wars: Episode VIII The Last Jedi. The Star Wars Book places the events of The Last Jedi in the same year as the events of Star Wars: Episode VII The Force Awakens, which Star Wars: Galactic Atlas dates to 34 ABY, meaning the document must have been published at some point no earlier than that year.
