Gowix Corporation was a company headquartered on the planet Corellia around the time of the Galactic War between the Galactic Republic and the Sith Empire. Founded before 3641 BBY, Gowix maintained offices on the edge of Archival Square, a section of the Axial Park district in Corellia's capital Coronet City, and the company was caught up in the fighting when the Empire invaded Corellia. The corporation's building in Axial Park was captured by Sith forces, and the invaders set up a prototype weapon known as Firestorm Turbolaser in the company's offices with the intention of causing massive casualties in Archival Square. However, the Jedi Knight known as the Hero of Tython infiltrated the building using an assault shuttle and eliminated the Sith forces within the company's offices before destroying the weapon.
Behind the scenes[edit | edit source]
Gowix Corporation first appeared in the video game Star Wars: The Old Republic, released by BioWare in 2011. Gowix's office tower is one of the buildings that Jedi Knight players are sent to during the class mission "Firestorm" on Corellia.

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
