Docking Bay 74 was a docking area in the Coruscant Spaceport, located on the edge of the Senate Plaza on the Galactic Republic's capital planet of Coruscant. In 3643 BBY, the Mon Calamari General Var Suthra arranged for a Defender-class light corvette to be delivered to the docking bay for a young Jedi Knight to use to travel to the planet Ord Mantell, as part of the Jedi's mission to stop the Sith Lord Darth Angral from utilizing stolen superweapons against the Republic. The Coruscant Spaceport Authority also authorized the Jedi Knight to continue to use the docking bay for the ship whenever the Jedi's crew returned to Coruscant over the next few years.
Behind the scenes[edit | edit source]
Docking Bay 74 first appeared in the Jedi Knight mission "New Intelligence" in Star Wars: The Old Republic, a MMORPG released by BioWare in 2011. Throughout the rest of the game, it serves as the default hangar for Jedi Knight players when they return to Coruscant.

Notes and references[edit | edit source]
- Star Wars: The Old Republic—Jedi Knight Mission: "New Intelligence" on Ord Mantell
- Star Wars: The Old Republic about ten to twelve years after the signing of the Treaty of Coruscant, which is dated to 3653 BBY by Star Wars: The Old Republic Encyclopedia. The Old Republic—The Lost Suns 2 takes place ten years after the treaty, one week after the mission to Nar Shaddaa, and around the time of the SpecForce Incident. Since the mission and the incident are respectively part of Act I of the Jedi Knight and Republic Trooper's storylines, and the Trooper's Act I occurs concurrent to Act I of the Smuggler storyline, the general events of Act I for all classes can be assumed to occur in 3643 BBY. The Prologue for each class immediately precedes Act I, and Act III for all classes begins with the start of the Galactic War, which Star Wars: The Old Republic Encyclopedia places around 3640 BBY. Assuming that in-universe chronology of the Star Wars: The Old Republic events roughly aligns with the release of story content in real-life as with , the Act III Epilogue must take place near the end of 3640 BBY since it was the chronologically latest story of the The Old Republic base game, which was released toward the end of 2011. Therefore, assuming that The Old Republic takes place over the course of three years per the former of the two aforementioned swtor.com posts, Act I takes place near the end of 3643 BBY. places
