The Pleiades was a galactic location. It contained Endymion,[1] a planet in the Kalamith sector of the Outer Rim Territories[2] that was the site of a skirmish between Jedi and Sith during a galaxy-wide war.[1]

Behind the scenesEdit

The Pleiades was fleetingly mentioned for the 2010 book Star Wars Art: Visions as the home for the planet Endymion in Michael Haynes's artwork Skirmish on Endymion.[1] According to Haynes' website, he originally meant for the Pleiades to be a constellation,[3] although this information was ultimately absent from the final version of the book.[1] In real-life astronomy, the Pleiades is an open star cluster located in the constellation of Taurus.[4] A June 12, 2015 update to the Star Wars: The Essential Atlas Companion added an Endymion system in the Kalamith sector of the Outer Rim, though no mention of the Pleiades was made.[2]
