Appearances section[edit source]

Seeing as how the galaxy appears in literally every single piece of canon Star Wars media, I suggest we change the appearances section to only include specific mentions of the galaxy. Cevan (talk) 00:36, April 6, 2015 (UTC)

Yes, I've been doing only mentions, descriptions and hologram appearances. Calvin Schubert(talk) 00:58, April 6, 2015 (UTC)

Is this a stub?[edit source]

I don't think this is a stub anymore . . . thinking maybe we should remove the tag?Dretlerthedroid (talk) 14:12, August 9, 2017 (UTC)

The Galaxy[edit source]

I'd like to propose capitalizing the title, changing it to "The Galaxy" - I believe it would feel more formal, and more appropriate for a wiki article.

While in official sources, "the galaxy" is used most of the time, "the Galaxy" was used once in the Star Wars Maps: Charting the Galaxy post.

"Later in the movie, when Padmé Amidala tells Anakin Skywalker they need to go rescue Obi-Wan on Geonosis, a top-down view of the Galaxy map can be seen on the console of her yacht."

All map images, on the other hand, seem to use all-caps "THE GALAXY", which unfortunately offers no obvious emphasis on any of the letters. - Sligneris (talk) 09:35, December 4, 2017 (UTC)

Can we add astrographies to each of the galaxies regions?

Why is this being referred to with “was a” instead of “is a”? Did the galaxy blow up or something? In fact, why is everything in this wiki referred to in past-tense? Mooshry (talk) 22:33, December 23, 2019 (UTC)

  • "A long time ago, in a galaxy far, far away..." 1358 (Talk) 22:36, December 23, 2019 (UTC)

but just because it was long ago doesn’t mean the entire galaxy should be in past-tense, unless it went supernova. Mooshry (talk) 23:17, December 23, 2019 (UTC)

Map[edit source]

The Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker: The Visual Dictionary has an updated map of the galaxy (pages 34-35), including new canon planets. Could we use that image for this article or would it be against copyright rules? --Castelgard (talk) 18:28, December 27, 2019 (UTC)

  • We can use the image, as long as this template is filled in. If you're planning to use the image, I would replace the image in the Astrography section with the one from the visual dictionary --Lewisr (talk) 18:45, December 27, 2019 (UTC)
