The Quilan system was a star system that was located within the Roche sector, a part of the galaxy's Mid Rim region.[1] The system was the origin point of the Quilan Pyradex artifacts,[2][3] which were created at some point by 3639 BBY.[4] At least one Quilan Pyradex had come to rest on the[2] Outer Rim Territories[5] planet Tatooine[2] by 85 BBY.[6]

Behind the scenesEdit

The Quilan system was first mentioned in the 2009 reference book The Essential Atlas, written by Jason Fry and Daniel Wallace, which placed the system in grid square Q-8.[5]

Jason Fry, co-author of The Essential Atlas, stated his intention to create homeworlds for numerous species based on context implied from their names. Given this principle, this article makes a similar basic assumption for the Quilan Pyradex in relation to the Quilan system.
  4. Using information from the novel The Old Republic: Annihilation and Star Wars: The Old Republic: Knights of the Fallen Empire, the events of Game Updates 2.0 through 3.3 for Star Wars: The Old Republic can be placed in the time period between 3640 BBY and 3637 BBY. According to The Old Republic lead designer Charles Boyd (screenshot), the game's events can be assumed to occur in a timeline matching that of their real-time release. Therefore, the events of Game Update 2.0 and the Digital Expansion Rise of the Hutt Cartel can be placed in approximately 3639 BBY. Since SWTOR mini Star Wars: The Old Republic—Archaeology Crew Skill Mission: "Solving the Equation" establishes the existence of Quilan Pyradexes by the time of the events of Rise of the Hutt Cartel, the artifacts must have been created by 3639 BBY.
