The Gamor system was an Expansion Region star system located within the Chaykin sector. It lay on the Corellian Run super-hyperroute and served as one endpoint of the Gamor Run hyperlane. Space around the Gamor system was considered well-explored as early as 20,000 BBY, and the system was the site of a Galactic Republic victory over the forces of the Sith sect during the Great Sith War. During the following millennia, the Gamor system fell within the spheres of influence of various governments, and in 27 ABY it came under the control of the extra-galactic Yuuzhan Vong species.
Description[edit | edit source]
The Gamor star system was located within the Expansion Region's Chaykin sector. It lay between the Allanteen and Milagro systems on the Corellian Run super-hyperroute, which served as a dividing line between the regions known as the Slice and the Trailing Sectors. The star system also formed one endpoint of the Gamor Run hyperlane, which connected it to the Merren system.
History[edit | edit source]
The area of space surrounding the Gamor system was explored between 25,000 and 20,000 BBY, although the system itself had already been under the control of the Rakatan Infinite Empire by 25,200 BBY. The Gamor system became a battleground during the Great Sith War in 3996 BBY, when, following a victory over the forces of the Sith sect in the Denon system, the Corellian fleet of the Galactic Republic traveled along the Corellian Run toward Gamor and defeated the Sith there as well. During the Jedi Civil War, fought forty years later, the system lay within the territory claimed by Darth Revan's Sith Empire.
In 22 BBY, the Gamor system fell within the borders of the Confederacy of Independent Systems, and the Republic's Sixteenth Sector Army was charged with engaging the military forces of the Confederacy in the system's vicinity. The system was located within space controlled by the Galactic Empire five years later.
The population of the Gamor system around 25 ABY was between 10 billion to 100 billion. During the early stages of the galactic conquest carried out by the extra-galactic Yuuzhan Vong species, the Yuuzhan Vong military forces passed through the Gamor system before attacking the Rhommamool and Tynna systems. The Gamor system remained under the control of those invaders by 27 ABY.
Behind the scenes[edit | edit source]
The Gamor system was first mentioned in the 2009 reference book The Essential Atlas, authored by Jason Fry and Daniel Wallace, which placed the system in grid square O-14. The 2013 Core Rulebook for Fantasy Flight Games' Star Wars: Edge of the Empire roleplaying game introduced an erroneous spelling of "Gamorr" for the Gamor system, which was repeated the following year in the Core Rulebook for the Star Wars: Age of Rebellion roleplaying game.
In addition, both of those books, as well as the 2015 Core Rulebook for the Star Wars: Force and Destiny roleplaying game, contained a map of the galaxy in which the placements of the Milagro and Bacrana systems had been mistakenly switched, thereby erroneously depicting the latter as the Gamor system's closest Rimward neighbor on the Corellian Run hyperlane.
