- "Colonel Brint, Eighty-third Battalion. Welcome to Corellia."
- ―Colonel Brint
The Eighty-third Battalion was a unit within the Republic Military that served in the Galactic War with the Sith Empire. When the planet Corellia was invaded by the Empire in 3641 BBY, the battalion was sent under the command of Colonel Brint to aid in the Battle of Corellia. Brint established a base in the Corellian Science Museum in the Axial Park district of Corellia's capital Coronet City, where he worked under the command of the Republic General Var Suthra to aid the Jedi Order and the military's operations on the world.
Behind the scenes[edit | edit source]
The Eighty-third Battalion was first mentioned in the Jedi Knight class mission "Firestorm" in the video game Star Wars: The Old Republic, released by BioWare in 2011. The battalion is only mentioned if the player speaks to Brint after the mission's first cutscene, and it is not identified whether the troopers in the museum—who wear the same white and blue armor as the other troopers across the planet—are part of the battalion.

Notes and references[edit | edit source]
- Star Wars: The Old Republic—Jedi Knight Mission: "Firestorm" on Corellia
- 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
