The Silver Sea was an expansive sea on the Core Worlds planet Chandrila. Located near the Chandrilan capital of Hanna City, multiple buildings in and around the capital had a view of the sea. In 5 ABY, aspiring pilot Temmin Wexley trained over the Silver Sea both physically and in a flight simulator. Later that year, Imperial defector Sinjir Rath Velus and several of his companions visited a tavern located along the sea's cliffside.


Located on the[1] Core Worlds[2] planet Chandrila, the Silver Sea was an expanse of calm, slate-gray water. Chandrila's capital, Hanna City,[1] was located near the sea,[3] as was Landing Platform OB-99. The office of New Republic general Leia Organa overlooked the sea, as did her apartment's balcony and a tavern. Part of the Silver Sea's coast was formed by cliffs against which waves crashed.[4]


In 5 ABY,[5] Chandrila's transition from the winter to spring seasons resulted in the formation of storm clouds over the sea that released rain and lightning. By that time, New Republic pilot Wedge Antilles allowed Temmin Wexley, son of fellow New Republic pilot Norra Wexley, to perform training exercises in an X-wing starfighter above the Silver Sea. When Temmin boarded the starship Halo to meet with his mother and her crew, the sun rose over the Silver Sea. Later, Antilles had Temmin fly over the sea in a flight simulator. In the simulator, Temmin repeatedly crashed his starfighter, including an instance where he flew close to the sea's surface to avoid sensor arrays.[1]

A tavern that was located above the Silver Sea was frequented by Imperial defector Sinjir Rath Velus near the end of the Galactic Civil War between the Galactic Empire and the New Republic. After the Battle of Jakku[4] in 5 ABY,[6] which ended the conflict, Velus and several of his friends visited the tavern. During their visit, Chandrila's moon brightened the sea. At the end of their night, Velus and his last remaining companion, bounty hunter Jas Emari, stood and spoke outside the tavern as wind blew off the Silver Sea and waves crashed below them.[4]

An alcoholic drink called the Silver Sea Martini was served aboard Chandrila Star Line's MPO-1400 Purgill-class star cruiser Halcyon. The drink was also gray in color.[7]
