Diatia Major was a star located within the Core Worlds and Southern Core's star system of the same name. Lying on the edge of the Deep Core region, the star was not orbited by any planets.
However, Diatia Major was encircled by the Diatian Clockwork, a large, mysterious ring composed of a metallic alloy and etched with deep, regularly-spaced grooves. For millennia, the ring amazed visitors, and it was widely believed to be constructed by members of the sentient Celestial species, who had disappeared from the galaxy by 30,000 BBY.
Behind the scenes[edit | edit source]
Diatia Major was originally meant to be mentioned in the 2012 reference book The Essential Guide to Warfare by Jason Fry and Paul R. Urquhart; however, the sidebar that would have mentioned the star was cut before the book's release.
The information regarding Diatia Major was later released in 2013 as part of Star Wars: The Essential Guide to Warfare Author's Cut, a series of articles published on the StarWars.com Blog by Fry and Erich Schoeneweiss containing various cut content from The Essential Guide to Warfare. The StarWars.com Online Companion to the 2009 reference book The Essential Atlas placed the Diatia Major system in grid square L-12.
