Quintessence was a form of dark energy. According to Resistance officer Ushos O. Statura, the scientists working on the Galactic Empire's Project Celestial Power had tried to contain dark-matter quintessence.[1] Originally thought impossible to tap into, the First Order discovered a way to harvest quintessence decades later, giving it a practically unlimited source of energy. The First Order used quintessence to create a superweapon called Starkiller Base, which could destroy entire star systems. When the superweapon fired its planet-shattering beam, it transformed the quintessence within into phantom energy, another form of dark energy.[2] The destruction of the Hosnian system in 34 ABY was visible from across the galaxy due to the sub-hyperspace rip that was created when Starkiller Base fired its main weapon.[3]
