"Great ReSynchronization" in the article. Should it be here too? --SparqMan 18:34, 15 Jun 2005 (UTC)


  • If this occured in 9 BBY then nothing makes sense now. -- Riffsyphon1024 04:47, 21 Jun 2005 (UTC)

Is there a reason why it's ReSynchronization instead of Resynchronization?

Format Edit

If I'm not mistaken, the date format is [year]:[month]:[day]. I'm adding it as that, but if I am incorrect please feel free to correct me. Shadowtrooper talk 01:54, 14 Nov 2005 (UTC)

OK, BrS is used for Before ReSynchonization dates. What about after ReSynchonization? ArS?? -Fnlayson 05:30, 23 November 2006 (UTC)

  • No, the letters are only used for dates before the ReSynchronization. Anything after is just numbers. -- Ozzel 05:37, 23 November 2006 (UTC)
    • Thanks. So by default just numbers used in dating context mean GrS dates. Others dating systems use acronymns with the numbers, e.g. BBY/ABY. Might be a good idea to link to GrS like ([[Great ReSynchronization|45]]) to help people out. -Fnlayson 06:01, 23 November 2006 (UTC)

And in the Empire? Edit

Didn't the Empire have another system,too? I read in some books that the Imperial Year 0 is 19BBY (Establishment of the Empire) and that this continues like that, even in New Republic.

  • I know that was shown in Dark Force Rising.Thanos6 05:48, 29 Nov 2005 (UTC)

Capitalized S? Edit

Since when is a "re-" prefix followed by a capitalized letter? - TopAce 16:04, 10 March 2006 (UTC)

  • Since here. :-) Ozzel 16:24, 10 March 2006 (UTC)

Year 0 Edit

Realistically, I don't think there'd be a year zero. You start counting with the number, not with zero (unless you're a computer science major, I guess). After all, there's no 0 CE or AD. SWUAlpha 08:16, 4 February 2008 (UTC)

Year Zero is the Year in which the events which caused the resetting of the calender, for instance, all events which happened up to and just before The Battle of Yavin,in the same year, occured in 0 bby while events taking place up to at least 6 months but usually one year after were referred to as happening in 0 aby, which means roughly that they happened the same year, 1 aby signififies the events took place 1 year after the battle of Yavin, not during the same year as.5/14/10 -Niv Dralshy'a

Month Inconsistency Edit

If there are 10 months in the Galactic Calendar, why does ReSync format count up to 12...? - Brynn Alastayr 22:15, 17 January 2009 (UTC)

I'm wondering the same thing. I've seen evidence that writers are assuming the same calendar system as in the real world and forgetting to research the in-universe system. However, I can find no reference to reconsile this. Only fanon, which, as we all know, has no place here encyclopedically. (Did I jus tmake up that word?) For the time bring, it appears we have to continue scratching our heads about it... Medleystudios72 18:52, 12 March 2009 (UTC)

B Edit

Formation Date Wrong? Edit

Based on what I have seen, the Great ReSynchronization was made in 36 BBY instead of 35 BBY. If 0:0:0 is the start (or 0:1:1) and 35:3:8 is the Battle of Yavin, shouldn't 36 BBY be the start of the dating system? 35:3:8 - 35 years is 35 BBY, yes, but any time before that date is 36 BBY. Therefore, it should be formed in that year. SenatorConfer (talk) 03:41, June 5, 2018 (UTC)

Reference? Edit

Where in A Guide to the Star Wars Universe does it mention the Great ReSynchronization or the dating format in any way? I can find it anywhere in the book. -- Frank V Bonura 15:36, February 25, 2019 (UTC)
