"A long time ago in a galaxy far, far away.…"
―Journal of the Whills[src]

This is a timeline of galactic history—a chronological record of events relevant to the galaxy.

The unit of measurement used in reference to time is the galactic calendar, which is based on the Battle of Yavin serving as the intermediate whereupon time before the pivotal moment is denoted as "BBY" (an abbreviation of "before the Battle of Yavin"), whilst dates following which are marked as "ABY" (after the Battle of Yavin). The format of Standard year/BBY and Standard year/ABY is employed.[1]

c. 5000 – c. 1000 BBY[edit | edit source]

Dark Age (c. 1000 BBY)[edit | edit source]

  • c. 1032 BBY
    • The Jedi-Sith War[74] ends with the Jedi Order and[72] the Galactic Republic[13] victorious.[72]
    • The sole Sith survivor, Darth Bane,[48] creates the Great Plan—a plot to destroy the Jedi and the Republic from within for the coming of Sith rule over the galaxy[80]—and establishes the[81] Rule of Two,[25] a lineage of Sith who would operate in the shadows, preserving the Sith's vendetta against the Jedi whilst preparing for their own return. Centuries before the Clone Wars, the Rule of Two is revealed to the Jedi Order, though still they presume the Sith's eradication and believe that Bane's plan is ruined with his defeat[81] allegedly at the hands of his apprentice, Darth Zannah, in a duel on the Inner Rim planet Ambria. This pattern is repeated by nearly all Sith thereafter.[82]
    • The Sith Lord becomes the last of his kind to be laid to rest on Moraband's Valley of the Dark Lords.[81]
    • The Sith Wars waged between the Republic and the Sith Empire[83] has ended by this point.[84] The Sith Wars saw the participation of the Jedi Order on the side of the Republic[7] as well as the participation of the Chiss Ascendancy, which encountered multiple alien species before retreating to their borders.[83] The Jedi Cervil the Uncanny had left begind testimonies about lightwhips being effective against the Sith's Forbidden Forms,[85] and Ithorian population of Auratera continues restoring the world to its natural state following the Sith Wars.[7]

Rise of the Republic (c. 1000 BBY)[edit | edit source]

  • c. 1032 BBY (continued)
    • Founding of the modern Galactic Republic; with the Republic's definitive victory, its capital resettles on Coruscant, and the time before this rebirth is forgotten as a dark age, the "Old Republic." Official calendars begin anew,[72] and the Old Republic military is disbanded.[10] By this point,[86] the Galactic Senate, newly-founded by several star systems,[87] elects Tarsus Valorum[74] as the first Supreme Chancellor.[10]

    • What will be remembered as the most unpredictable and thrilling instance of the Dragon Void race until the race involving Han Solo occurs.[93]
    • The Anchorite sect, a group on Jakku in servitude to the light side of the Force that believed that suffering was the basis of life, binds itself to the Jedi Order.[94]
    • Auratera is concealed from official charts and isolated from the galaxy at large by the Jedi and its populace to prevent future Sith or other dark side Force users from accessing the planet's Acablas vergence.[7]

    • The rebels conduct a mission to Shu-Torun; seeking revenge, Leia Organa plans to bring the traitor, Queen Trios, to ruin. Beginning with Trios' Empire-allied world, Organa found her and her own forces' mistakes after dueling Trios, who died fighting against the vengeful Partisans' threat of destroying her world. Ultimately, Organa's team acts to save Shu-Torun, and the Heroes of Yavin emerge victorious.[658][657]
    • Members of the Rebel Alliance gather on a new base on Hoth,[659] the sixth planet in the Hoth system.[660] The rebels' Echo Base is constructed over the course of two years up until the Battle of Hoth[19] in 3 ABY.[1] Months before the battle, Rogue Squadron begins to be stationed at Echo Base.[661]

The Coyerti campaign begins, ultimately resulting in an Alliance-Coyerti victory.[3]
      • Rebel groups are sent throghout the Mid Rim to conduct missions designed to distract Imperials from the Mid Rim Retreat. The Twenty-First travel to Bestine IV on one such mission.[3]
    • At some point before the Battle of Hoth[665]
    • Weeks before the Battle of Hoth
    • The Battle of Hoth occurs. The Alliance suffers a costly blow when the Empire attacks Echo Base, although Carlist Rieekan's evacuation order helps rebels escape in time to avoid a complete catastrophe.[673]
    • Prelate Verge of the Imperial Ruling Council continues to hunt down the Sixty-First, commanding the unsuccessful infiltration of the rebel vessel Thunderstrike.[3]
    • By around this point, Lando Calrissian had freed the slaves held at the Fantanine mining colony.[674]
    • Following advice from the Force spirit of Obi-Wan Kenobi, Luke Skywalker heads to Dagobah to begin his training with Jedi Master Yoda.[673]
    • Darth Vader hires bounty hunters Boba Fett, Bossk, Dengar, IG-88B, and Zuckuss and 4-LOM to track down the Millennium Falcon, which travels across the Anoat sector, eventually reaching Bespin's Cloud City from the Hoth asteroid belt.[673]
    • Duel on Cloud City between Luke Skywalker and Darth Vader. Skywalker learns that Vader is his father, Anakin, although Luke lets go and surrenders himself to the abyss of Cloud City rather than join the dark side.[673]

      Luke Skywalker chose to leave his training on Dagobah to save his friends.

    • Han Solo is frozen in carbonite and taken by Boba Fett. Aboard the Millennium Falcon, Luke Skywalker, Lando Calrissian, Leia Organa, Chewbacca, C-3PO, and R2-D2 escape from Cloud City, which is occupied by Imperial forces.[673]
    • Darth Vader embarks on a quest for revenge against those who hid his son Luke Skywalker from him.[675] With the forensics droid ZED-6-7,[676] Vader returns to the Lars moisture farm and later to Padmé Amidala's apartment on Coruscant for clues.[675]
    • "The Contessa" is faced with rebuilding her rebel[677] Corona Squadron after it fought at the Battle of Hoth and regrouped aboard the Liberty.[309] Tasked by Mon Mothma to organize the starfighter defense at Rendezvous Point Delta-Three, "the Contessa" assigns Wedge Antilles to reform Red Squadron from Rogue Squadron veterans and other individuals.[677]
    • Under Commander Wedge Antilles, Red Squadron foils the plans of a group of hostile pirates.[677]
    • Dengar gambles with and is indebted to the Ohnaka Gang, whose original leader, Hondo Ohnaka, had been replaced by Skragg.[678]
    • Having cracked the Rebel Alliance's codes, which were top secret and known only to a few individuals, such as R2-D2, the Empire tracks down rebels regrouping from the Battle of Hoth who initiated communications with other Alliance divisions.[679]
    • The Falcon arrives at a battle at Rendezvous Point Delta-Three. The new arrivals aide in the rebels' escape from Imperial forces led by Ellian Zahra,[679] who was reassigned by Darth Vader and the Emperor from a non-essential post at the spice mines of Kessel to hunt down remnants of the Rebellion.[680] Following the incident, Commander Zahra received explicit instructions from Lord Vader: Luke Skywalker was not to be harmed.[679]
    • After taking a fork-nosed ice worm fossil from Imperial forces on Hoth to sell to the Shadow University through Sava Estat, Chelli Lona Aphra embarks on a job to find the Rings of Vaale, which allegedly grants eternal fortune, immortality, and abilities to rival the most powerful Force user when used together. Doctor Aphra, archaeology student Detta Yao, the bounty hunter Black Krrsantan, and the mercenary "Just Lucky" pursue the rings against Ronen Tagge, scion of the Empire's aristocratic Tagge family. After losing years of research to Tagge at the Ruins of Kolkur, Professor Eustacia Okka and her droid, TA-418, who had done research on the rings, join Aphra aboard the Ark Angel III,[681] traveling to Vaale, Dianth, the home of the The Architects of Vaale who made the rings. They discover murals of High Republic iconography warning that when used independently, one ring would grant eternal life at the cost of the user's madness, while another would grant fortune at the cost of hastening the user's eventual demise.[682]
    • With the assistance of Just Lucky, Tagge's mercenaries trace Aphra's crew to Vaale, taking the Ring of Fortune before destroying the city of living bone with Aphra and her crew captured.[683] Aphra's crew is taken to Ronen Tagge's Private Penthouse in Canto Bight, where they kill Ronen, who was wearing the two rings, and escape from after stealing several priceless artifacts.[684]

      A replica of the Nihil Path engine set both the Unbroken Clan and the Tagge dynasty in pursuit; while the clan was reputed for not letting go, Tagge hired the rogue archaeologist Doctor Aphra for the hunt.

    • Remy delivers a replica of the Nihil Path engine to De'Rruyet Industries on Corellia before assisting Sana Starros with a drop-off on the world.[685]
    • The Gortus 4 colony signs over rights to their moon, prompting the Tagge Construction Division to be tasked with establishing an ore factory within a week.[686]
    • The strikes on the Keshk lunar colony continue for the eighth day as a result of wage disputes with the Keshk Corporation.[686]
    • Beol De'Rruyet reveals that his De'Rruyet Industries has found a way to replicate the Nihil Path engine with the potential to completely change the galactic economy or end the galactic war.[686]
    • Lucky reports Ronen's fall to Lady Domina Tagge,[684] who captures Aphra to Tagge Space after bounty hunter pursuits through Taris, Burnin Konn, and Arveesh Station. The head of Tagge Corporation hires Aphra to gather more information on the De'Rruyet Path engine replica.[686]
    • Nakano Lash resurfaces near Kessel.[687] Having been informed by Aphra and Black Krrsantan on Burnin Konn that she has resurfaced, Bossk races to find Lash. The latter is also sought by her former protégé, Beilert Valance, as well as Boba Fett, who deviated from delivering Han Solo in carbonite to settle a personal score with Lash. Lash had torn apart the group of hunters years ago on Corellia, when she killed their client and the sole heir of the Mourner's Wail Syndicate, Khamus, as well as causing the death of Krynthia, the sole heir of the Unbroken Clan, instigating a continuation of violence between the two groups, which formed the three crime syndicates of Corellia with the addition of Lady Proxima's White Worms.[688]
    • Leaving her lover and peaceful life on the Moon of Logal Ri behind, T'onga pursues Lash to avenge the death of her brother, T'ongor, while Thisspiasian hunter Ooris Bynar pursues Lash with the help of the bondsman Syphacc.[687]
    • Amanaman agrees to notify Lando Calrissian should Boba Fett appear at Jabba's Palace. Jabba himself forces Calrissian to agree to spy on the Rebellion on his behalf with the threat of death.[138]
    • Mourner's Wail kills Unbroken Clan soldiers in a bombing on Chorgad. In retaliation, General Vukorah of the clan attacks[689] a Mourner's Wail spice run[690] in the Kessel Sector,[689] prompting the latter group to bomb a Caviness IV settlement.[689]
    • Ooris Bynar is killed by Nakano Lash after tracing the latter to Ruusan, and Bossk is left on the graveyard world of Galmerah by Boba Fett. Valance and T'onga reach Lash, who reveals that she only killed Khamus because they were sent to murder a pregnant Krynthia. Lash further reveals that she had been raising Khamus and Krynthia's child, Cadeliah, in the hope that she would unite the two warring syndicates as their joint heir.[690]
    • While T'onga's lets go of her desire for vengeance, she is mortally wounded by Boba Fett, who fulfills his desire to arrange Lash's death by leaving her on her starship, which is destroyed by Vukorah of the Unbroken Clan. Fett escapes aboard the Slave I, and Valance vows to protect Cadeliah as per Lash's dying wish, taking his ship, the Broken Wing, alongside Cadeliah.[691]

      With the criminal underworld at war amidst the galactic struggle against the Empire, Valance had to navigate through fragments of his past while honoring the selfless acts of Nakano Lash, his mentor, and his savior, Han Solo.

    • Vukorah finishes purging those loyal to the old line of the Unbroken Clan and hires Zuckuss and 4-LOM to hunt down Valance and Cadeliah to secure her own place as leader of the clan.[692]
    • Aphra enlists the help of Sana Starros to gain an audience with Lady Proxima at the Den of the White Worms on Corellia, who directs them to the Unbroken Clan. After clan leader Vukorah finished interrogating Remy, Aphra and Starros steal a datapad containing a transcript of Remy's interrogation, following a lead to[685] an ancient battlefield on Dol'har Hyde. There, Aphra and Starros are attacked by Vukorah and the Unbroken Clan.[693]
    • Valance and Cadeliah flee to meet Valance's lover, Yuralla Vega, at a rebel outpost on Lowik.[692] Valance leaves Cadeliah in the care of Yuralla Vega as Zuckuss and 4-LOM attack the Lowik rebels,[694] who are separated from Rebel Command as the Empire had broken the rebel security codes. While Valance distracts the hunters by visiting random ports throughout the galaxy, the Lowik rebels evacuate before the Empire's arrival, though they ask Valance to save a lone transport that was lost in the process. Valance does so to settle his debt to Han Solo, but is shot down by the Ohnaka Gang, which is led by Skragg, advised by a captive Dengar,[695] and in pursuit of the locations of the rebel armada.[678]
    • Valance battles Skragg's Ohnaka Gang, saves the rebel transport, and secures the rebel locations for the Rebel Alliance's Private Blanch Sproull. Hearing of Han Solo's capture by Boba Fett from Dengar, Valance takes Dengar captive to rescue Solo.[678] Aboard a Corona-class armed frigate stolen from the Ohanak Gang, the two hunters pursue Boba Fett and his Slave I.[696]
    • Working for Jabba alongside the Hutt's majordomo, Bib Fortuna, the hunter Bossk joins the hunted in the Great Hunt of Malastare, sparing Grummgar and killing the InterGalactic Banking Clan Vice Chair Exum Jermit, who had been refusing to do business with Jabba.[696]
    • Having deduced alongside the rebel Fourth Division they have saved at Rendezvous Point Delta-Three that the Empire was using Alliance codes to hunt down rebels at rendezvous points, the crew of the Millennium Falcon leave the EF76 Nebulon-B escort frigate Redemption at Backup Rendezvous Point Gamma-Nine to return to Cloud City.[697]
    • While the Liberty and Corona Squadron, previously at Rendezvous Point Delta-Three, did not join the rebels at Backup Rendezvous Point Gamma-Nine. Instead, Corona Squadron undertake a series of reconnaissance missions for the Rebellion, charting the planet D'Qar shortly before the Battle of Endor.[309] D'Qar would house only a small Alliance outpost during the Galactic Civil War before becoming the base of the Resistance decades later.[19]
    • Luke Skywalker seeks and fails to find his lost lightsaber, whilst Leia Organa, in her resolve to rescue Han Solo, infiltrates and is captured by the local Imperial garrison in her quest to learn more of the carbon-freezing mechanism. Meanwhile, Lando Calrissian finds his friend Lobot and sabotages the surrounding area of refined tibanna.[698]

      Through a vision, Luke Skywalker lets go of his lightsaber and sets off to save Leia Organa.

    • Skywalker lets go of his weapon following a vision through the Force. He then joins with Calrissian and Lobot to rescue Leia Organa from the Empire. In doing so, they accidentally free the Bespin Wing Guard, who are admitted into the Rebel Alliance.[698]
    • Luke Skywalker parts ways with the crew of the Millennium Falcon. With R2-D2, he travels to the planet he envisioned earlier in search of a woman, whom Skywalker also witnessed in his vision, for help in his Jedi future and the fate of the Rebellion.[699]
    • Skywalker meets Verla, a former disciple the Jedi Ferren Barr who rejected the Jedi, the Sith, and the Force in order to live her life. On Luke Skywalker's promise that he would not disturb her again be it the will of the Force, Verla gives the aspiring Jedi the location of a yellow-bladed lightsaber for him to claim for the extinct Jedi Order. After a duel of wills against the phantom Grand Inquisitor, who found himself tied to a fate worse than death as he is bound by Darth Vader to the mortal realm despite dying years ago over Mustafar, Skywalker asserts his understanding that the Jedi believed in self-sacrifice; compassion—dying for a greater cause.[700]
    • Darth Vader and ZED-6-7 trail a transmitter from Padmé Amidala's apartment and travel to Vendaxa[676] after being led to a false finding of Luke Skywalker.[699] On Vendaxa, the pair encounter a group[676] of Amidalans—individuals seeking to avenge the mysterious death of Padmé Amidala[701]— being attacked by native fauna whilst investigating the cause of Amidala's death.[676]
    • Darth Vader and his droid finds the group's sole survivor: Sabé, a handmaiden of the late Padmé Amidala. Sabé's group intent on avenging Amidala's death, Vader tells the handmaiden that he as well sought revenge on those who hid the cause of Amidala's death, and Sabé joins Vader and leads him to Naboo, where she had hidden the security recordings taken from Amidala's apartment.[676]
    • Now on a hunt for the truth of Padmé Amidala's death, Darth Vader comes across Sabé's associates, former Royal Naboo Security Forces guards of Amidala Captains Gregar Typho and Tonra, who long suspected the senator was murdered after leaving for Mustafar during the last moments of the Clone Wars. With their presumption that Darth Vader had killed Padmé Amidala and Anakin Skywalker confirmed by the Sith Lord himself, Sabé's group ambush him, though their confrontation is interrupted by an[702] elder sando aqua monster.[45][701]
    • Darth Vader slays the sando aqua monster after fleeing with ZED-6-7, thereby increasing the species' chances of extinction within a century to eighty-three percent. Vader then leads his death trooper unit to battle the Amidalans, who guarded the tomb of Padmé Amidala under the leadership of Ric Olié. With memories of the group's leader teaching Anakin Skywalker to operate Amidala's Royal Naboo Starship surfacing, Vader spares Olié and proceeds to Amidala's tomb, although he is stopped by Sabé and other handmaidens of the former Naboo Queen and senator. Unable to kill them, he immobilizes Padmé Amidala's bodyguards and enters her tomb.[701]

      Rejected by his son, the cyborg Vader struggled with his desire for power and his chosen destiny as a Jedi and current servitude to the Sith, tearing through his past only to be reminded of his losses.

    • Darth Vader and ZED-6-7 trace a med implant at Amidala's tomb to Polis Massa, which had been attacked and abandoned by this point. Vader and his droid are followed and attacked by the Amidalans, who are defeated. Finding a holorecording of his wife's death at the maternity ward, Vader destroys ZED-6-7 in his rage before wallowing in grief, hearing his lover's last words that there is still good in Anakin Skywalker as he returns to the Imperial Palace on Coruscant, where he submits to the Emperor.[703]
    • For wallowing in grief, Vader is deposited by Darth Sidious to the black sands of Mustafar, on the spot where the Sith apprentice was immolated decades prior. To turn Vader's anger back into fear and the fear into pain, Sidious sends Ochi of Bestoon, assassin of the Sith, as a reminder.[704]
    • The Eye of Webbish Bog calls out to Vader, reminding the cyborg of his inner conflicts between his personal desire for power, his current servitude to the Sith and destined servitude to the Force, and his personal needs for family. After receiving a wayfinder to Exegol from the Eye,[705] Vader defeats Ochi's droid army and departs Mustafar holding Ochi captive in an escape pod retrofitted onto his green Jedi starfighter.[706]
    • Darth Vader and Ochi reach the vicinity of Exegol,[706] where they fly through an Imperial blockade led by Administrator Sly Moore as well as a multi-tentacled creature of a summa-verminoth sub-species. After receiving a vision of his son, Luke Skywalker, striking him down and taking his place at the Emperor's side, Vader makes a forbidden use of the Force to subdue the beast, thereby violating his master's command. Through fear of the Emperor's plans, Vader had become angered and was fueled by hatred, leading to a demonstration of power whereby the cyborg gained control over the beast and rode it to Exegol's Sith Citadel.[707]
    • The Rebellion's Fourth Division joins forces with the Seventh Division after battling Ellian Zahra's assault group[605] at Elessia.[708]
    • Operation Starlight begins; the Fourth Division aims to reassemble the scattered Alliance Fleet.[708]
      • The Pathfinders of the Rebel Alliance conduct a heist at Coruscant's Imperial Museum with help from Lando Calrissian and Lobot to steal the Autonomous Translator Module, Mark II droid, through which the Fourth and Seventh Divisions intend to establish new secret communications with other rebels.[708]
      • Starlight Squadron is established. Consisting of Wedge Antilles, Freyta Smyth, L'ulo L'ampar, Shara Bey, Evaan Verlaine, and Mart Mattin, it attempts to contact other rebel groups and establish new secret communications through the codes provided by the Autonomous Translator Module, Mark II linguistics droid, which is kept operational by Lobot.[709]

        Lando Calrissian insisted on saving Lobot despite the latter's loss of mind and the lives of rebels being at stake.

      • Starlight Squadron finds the ruins of the Sixth Division instead and is ambushed by Imperial probe droids. Amidst the chaos, Lobot begins to die in his efforts to keep the rebels' linguistics droid operational. While Lando Calrissian remains adamant in telling Lobot to cease maintaining the droid, Kes Dameron, fearing for his love, Shara Bey, demands Calrissian to let Lobot die in exchange so that Bey may be saved.[709]
      • Calrissian is detained by order of Leia Organa. After secretly learning its language, C-3PO deactivates the Rebellion's linguistics droid in its refusal to yield its self-interest to save Lobot. With command of the droid's language, communications are reestablished with Starlight Squadron, which escapes from Zahra and her flagship, Tarkin's Will, by exploiting the Empire's disregard for its own droids.[710]
      • However, Shara Bey, Starlight's commanding officer, is captured by Zahra's forces. While a despaired Kes Dameron is counseled by Leia Organa, Lando Calrissian is reunited with Lobot and, seeing that the Rebellion would not care for them, offers to pay off his debt to Jabba the Hutt by stealing the deactivated linguistics droid and its embedded rebel codes.[710]
      • Having traced the location of Tarkin's Will, the Rebellion plans to strike back at the Empire.[710]
    • Hunt for Han Solo
      • Holding a decapitated 4-LOM, Boba Fett attempts to take back a stolen Han Solo.[711]
      • Aboard an abandoned starship, Aphra and Starros encounter the fearsome bounty hunter Durge.[711]
      • Working with Dengar to trail Boba Fett, Valance seeks to help Han Solo since the latter saved his life, although he is faced by Chewbacca and C-3PO on Nar Shaddaa.[711]
      • Chewbacca hears from an old friend a lead on Han Solo's location.[712] R2-D2, C-3PO, Luke Skywalker, Lando Calrissian, and Chewbacca attempt to rescue Solo.[711] They are ambushed by forces under Boba Fett.[712]
      • In Hutt Space, Vader and Ochi battle IG-88 in search of Han Solo.[711]
    • Operation Ringbreaker begins.[3]
    • After eliminating a rebel cell in the aftermath of the Battle of Hoth,[714] Squadron Five of Shakara Nuress's 204th Imperial Fighter Wing, also known as Shadow Wing, reclaim the Kudo system from the defecting Admiral Gratloe's private faction. The 204th's Lyttan Dree and Zin Graw are killed amidst an attack by the Rebel Alliance after Graw, secretly wanting to defect to the rebels, leaked intelligence to the Alliance.[599]
  • 4 ABY

    Calm and collected, Leia Organa proceeded to disarm Boushh with a single blaster shot.

    • Leia Organa travels to Ord Mantell to find Maz Kanata for assistance in rescuing Han Solo. Boushh attacks Organa, though the bounty hunter was defeated by the latter, who took from Kanata's teachings of patience. Organa wears Boushh's armor as a disguise, thanking Maz Kanata before leaving in the Millennium Falcon with Chewbacca and R2-D2.[715][716]
    • Boushh attempts to blackmail Black Sun. He fails and falls to agents of the crime syndicate, though his demise is not well-known.[717][716]
    • Leia Organa, disguised as Boushh, rescues Lando Calrissian from bounty hunters on Arkanis. One hunter, Bossk, attempts to capture Chewbacca, although the Wookiee is later rescued. Organa thus cements Boushh's reputation with Bossk.[718]
    • With the Millennium Falcon, Lando Calrissian and Chewbacca leave[673] the Redemption at Backup Rendezvous Point Gamma-Nine[697] to find Han Solo.[673] They eventually arrive at Jabba's Palace on Tatooine, where Solo is held.[719]
    • Corona Squadron is involved in a dogfight in the Hudalla system.[309]
    • Less than one week before Operation Yellow Moon, Bothan operatives obtain footage of a second Death Star at Endor.[610] The Bothans bring the information to the Rebellion's Mon Mothma, Gial Ackbar, and Airen Cracken at the cost of many lives.[719]
    • Rebel intelligence chief and general Airen Cracken's men report a confirmed sighting of Boba Fett's ship over Tatooine, and that Fett has been paid for the delivery of Han Solo and is continuing to work for Jabba the Hutt.[610]
    • With the Rebellion's fleet still scattered across the galaxy to prevent another major defeat, Captain Volk Aymeric's rebel convoy protecting Princess Leia Organa withstands an attack by Imperial forces.[610]

      • Mon Mothma orders members of Rebel High Command to convene on Zastiga. Aboard the Mellcrawler, Nien Nunb transports Leia Organa, Caluan Ematt, and C-3PO from Aymeric's ship to Zastiga, where they join with Luke Skywalker and R2-D2.[610]

        Barely recovering from their defeat at Hoth, the Rebellion was forced to face the Empire's new Death Star.

      • On Zastiga, while Mon Mothma, Gial Ackbar, Airen Cracken, Crix Madine, Leia Organa, Carlist Rieekan, and a number of top admirals and generals—amongst them Nantz and Massa, as well as Veertag and Tantor—meet at a safe house to discuss the discovery of the second Death Star, Luke Skywalker, Wedge Antilles, and Nien Nunb meet for a discussion of how Nunb saved Antilles at Hagar Secundus.[610]
      • Luke Skywalker, who had rejected Antilles' offer for him to rejoin Red Squadron[720] and had been delaying his return to Yoda on Dagobah to await news of Han Solo, expects that he would return to the Redemption. Skywalker also tells Leia Organa of his need to master patience to become a Jedi.[610]
      • The next day, taking from Skywalker's lesson, Organa proposes Operation Yellow Moon to buy much-needed time for the Rebellion and the galaxy at the risk of her life. Mon Mothma approves of the proposal after telling Organa not to deny herself another chance at love; duty cannot provide the comfort love would bring.[610]
      • Rebels leave Zastiga the following day.[610]
    • Operation Yellow Moon; Aboard Nien Nunb's Mellcrawler, Leia Organa leads a faux Alliance recruiting mission in the Corva sector, nearly a hundred-thousand light years away from the second Death Star, that is meant to distract the Empire while the Rebellion gathers an armada at Sullust.[610]
      • Imperials led by Captain Khione garrison Basteel and Sesid in retaliation for Organa attempting to recruit for the Alliance on the two worlds, imposing greater fear and oppression on their populace in the goal of instilling absolute obedience.[610]
      • Unwilling to cause more lives of others to be lost while doing their duty for the fate of the Rebellion and the galaxy, Organa's crew decide to go beyong their mission parameters and assist in a civilian uprising against the Empire on Jaresh, ensuring that the local resistance succeeds.[610]
      • Organa's crew proceed to the Yellow Moon, over which rebel recruits from the Corva sector are set to rendezvous as arranged by the Rebel Alliance. The Mellcrawler broadcasts a message to the gathered rebels that they are only a distraction for a major upcoming Alliance battle elsewhere, and telling them to flee. As the rebels leave, Captain Khione's Imperial flagship, the Shieldmaiden, arrives and captures the Mellcrawler.[610]

        Operation Yellow Moon taught that while duty was crucial, people struggled against the Empire for inter-personal love; whether to honor those who died in the conflict or to fight for a brighter future for those still living.

      • With the individual voluntary sacrifices of two members of Organa's crew, as well as a surprise return of the rebel recruits, the crew destroys the Shieldmaiden using the Mellcrawler as a bomb, escaping Khione's Star Destroyer with a stolen Imperial shuttle named Tydirium.[610]
    • Aboard the shuttle Tydirium, Leia Organa, Nien Nunb, and Kidi Aleri reach Kothlis, where they join Luke Skywalker. Skywalker reports that they had gathered that Han Solo is still in carbonite, held at Jabba's Palace.[610]
    • Iden Versio escapes from the Invincible Faith with Moff Raythe's message, in which Death Squadron is ordered to move to the far side of Endor as part of the Empire's plans to trap the Rebel Alliance during what the rebels think to be their surprise assault on the Emperor's new battle station.[721]
    • With his green-bladed lightsaber, Luke Skywalker leads a raid at Imperial Refining Platform M36 to secure an entire year's worth of fuel supplies for the Rebel Alliance. With the rebels skeptical of Skywalker for his Force abilities sometimes giving false positives of potential threats, the rebels refuse to heed Skywalker's call to risk jumping into hyperspace and are attacked by an Imperial Star Destroyer as a result. Skywalker resists Darth Sidious' telepathic urges to abandon the rebels for being weak and the temptation to leave the war to live a quiet life, rejoining the rebels aboard their transport. Controlling his anger that festered from his guilt of nearly abandoning the rebels, Skywalker assists their leader in helping the rebels escape to safety.[722]
    • Imperials and rebels battle on Mordal.[16]
    • Rescue of Han Solo; on Tatooine, Han Solo is rescued from Jabba the Hutt, who is killed by Leia Organa. Boba Fett is consumed by the sarlacc of the Great Pit of Carkoon.[719]
    • Jabba's demise leads to the fall of his criminal empire; subsequent to the Hutt's death, Jabba's Palace's droid pool is permanently deactivated,[723][724] although the MerenData[462] EV-series supervisor droid EV-9D9[725] was only temporarily disabled[726] and later became a bartender at Chalmun's Spaceport Cantina on Tatooine by[727] around 9 ABY.[728]
    • Lando Calrissian defeats a pirate fleet at the Battle of Taanab, earning himself the rank of general in the Rebel Alliance.[48]
    • The Imperial Security Bureau trace Zin Graw's leak to a rebel recruitment base for Imperial defects. Squadron Five is replenished with Bansu Ro and Rac Syrmo—newly-graduated cadets under Instructor Yurib Nakan at Carida—and destroys the recruitment base. They would return to the Pursuer, their base of operations, to hear news of the Emperor's presumed death.[600]
    • Yoda dies on Dagobah; Luke Skywalker discovers that he is not only truly the son of Darth Vader, but also the brother of Leia Organa.[719]
    • A strike team led by Alliance General Han Solo lands on the Forest Moon of Endor with the shuttle Tydirium. They gather Ewok allies from Bright Tree Village.[719]
    • Luke Skywalker tells Leia Organa that they are siblings and that Darth Vader is their father. Luke Skywalker then leaves to confront Vader himself, attempting to join forces with him to fight against the Emperor as Jedi.[719]
    • Battle of Endor[719]
      • Departing the Sullust system, the Alliance Fleet flies into the trap set for them by the Emperor in the Endor system. Led by Admiral Ackbar from aboard the Home One, the rebels destroy the Executor.[719]
      • Han Solo's strike team and Ewok allies destroy the Death Star's shield generator, allowing rebel starfighters to infiltrate the Death Star's reactor core.[719]
      • Darth Vader no longer, Anakin Skywalker kills Darth Sidious, fulfilling the prophecy of the Chosen One and bringing balance to the Force by destroying the Sith. The second Death Star is destroyed by the Millennium Falcon.[719]

        Compassionate for the selflessness of his son, Anakin Skywalker let go of his hatred and cast away the Sith, bringing balance to the Force, fulfilling his destiny, and passed away with peace and purpose.

  • Gammit Chond creates maps based on tales of the galaxy, and his works end up in the Shadow Stacks of the Graf Archive; Later, Chond's drawings are exhumed by a trainee archivist.[1]
  • An archival task force led by archive droid TR-33NA scours the Graf Archive in a restoration effort for artifacts of historical importance. Within the library, they find an old illustrated journal of galactic species and cultures. TR-33NA identifies the drawing style to be similar to that of Gammit Chond.[872]

    Dissatisfied by recorded galactic history in the Journal of the Whills, a Whill lets go of it and forges their own story of the celebration of Life Day.

  • A Whill is appointed by other Whills with chronicling events that transpired in the galaxy into the Journal of the Whills. After extensive research on all things related to the subject and a lifetime of preparation, the Whill begins recording events of the Galactic Civil War into the Journal in the presence of a second Whill.[873]
  • The second Whill is unsatisfied with the first's writing, and leaves to write an episode on how Chewbacca's family celebrated Life Day in a personal journal.[873]
  • The Journal of the Whills is read to an audience of an extragalactic species situated far away from the galaxy about the events that occurred there during the distant past.[873]
