  • c. 4000 BBY
    • Fleeing civil war on Grizmallt, human refugees make Nabu their new home, discovering the presence of Gungans while settling in. The humans and the Gungans make war against each other in the next few decades before agreeing to live separately. Gungan society had flourished on the world in the preceding millennia after the sudden departure of the Elders, a reptilian sentient civilization that colonized Nabu and waged war against the indigenes. Before the Elders' arrival, the Gungans had lived on Nabu in large nomadic tribes for millennia.[7]
    • Later, the Gungan tribes are united under Boss Gallo and commence the building of Otoh Gunga as their capital city. Meanwhile, the humans, calling themselves "the Naboo," split into warring factions; the Time of Suffering is begun.[7]

    • By this point, a local corporation had begun their legitimate rule over the Heaven system.[68]
    • The Fire space station is constructed in the Heaven system.[69] It expands over a period of two thousand years, housing millions of permanent residents and becoming an integral transit point between the star system's political and economic centers. Fire eventually becomes famous to the wider galaxy for being a wholly artificial construct.[70]
    • A metal currency, the design of which was based on an ancient item of Heaven system philosophy, is used on Fire. It is eventually phased out in favor of the standard Heaven-earth currency as well as Republic credits later on.[70]
  • Over 2019 BBY; millennia before 19 BBY (exact chronology undefined)[71]
    • The Force vergence Acablas on Auratera comes to be a known destination for Jedi Masters and Sith Lords, with Auratera aligning itself with the Galactic Republic or whichever Sith Empire that controlled the surrounding star systems.[7]
    • Bardotta's Jour-un becomes a trading hub and the planet's major spaceport.[7]
    • The Cron Drift asteroid field is established in the Auril sector, preventing expeditions to the ancient Jedi world of Ossus.[7]

  • Between 2022 and 2019 BBY[72]
  • c. 2000 BBY
    • By this point, a sentient species constructs a hypergate that created a wormhole that led between the seams of time and space for their exodus from the wider galaxy.[74]

    • The Dagoyan Order takes hold of Bardotta after a series of successful and strategic small-scale wars; the once ruling Frangawl Cult goes into hiding.[7]
    • The Arakein Monks set in stone a clock atop Mount Arakeirkos. According to legend, whoever watches each swing of its pendulum for a day will have the lifespan of the universe revealed before their eyes.[78]
  • c. 1000 BBY (exact chronology undefined)[79]

Dark Age (c. 1000 BBY)[]

  • c. 1032 BBY
    • The Jedi-Sith War[84] ends with the Jedi Order and[82] the Galactic Republic[17] victorious.[82]
    • The sole Sith survivor, Darth Bane,[90] creates the Grand Plan—a plot to destroy the Jedi and the Republic from within for the coming of Sith rule over the galaxy[91]—and establishes the[92] Rule of Two,[34] 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[92] 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.[93]
    • The Sith Lord becomes the last of his kind to be laid to rest on Moraband's Valley of the Dark Lords.[92]
    • The Sith Wars waged between the Republic and the Sith Empire[94] has ended by this point.[95] 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.[94] The Jedi Cervil the Uncanny had left begind testimonies about lightwhips being effective against the Sith's Forbidden Forms,[96] and Ithorian population of Auratera continues restoring the world to its natural state following the Sith Wars.[7]

    • At this point, the Outer Rim contains few well-mapped hyperspace lanes that allows those seeking adventure, as well as those seeking to evade the Republic's laws, to do so.[49]

      With the breakdown of hyperspace throught the galaxy, Knights of the Jedi Order gathered at Starlight Beacon and were tasked to protect those stranded in the darkness of space.

    • The Coruscant-based Republic Chancellor Lina Soh envisions a galaxy of Great Works that ranged from infrastructure to culture in an effort to expand the Republic's reaches, better connect the peoples of the galaxy, and bring inspiration and peace for all citizens. Efforts are made to negotiate a new peace treaty between the Quarren and the Mon Calamari, as well as to mass-produce bacta—a "miracle" substance[49] primarily made from a barley originally cultivated on Thyferra[150] that was intended to replace juvan—in the hopes of revolutionizing medicine.[49]
    • As part of Chancellor Soh's pledge to maintain the Republic's hold on[49] the hard-to-navigate Outer Rim,[151] outreach programs are established in the Rim.[49]
    • In the Galactic Frontier,[152] where order and justice is maintained by Knights of the Jedi Order who, at independently-operated outposts[49] such as the Jedi Temple outpost on Caragon-Viner,[153] work closely with the Republic without direct assistance from the Coruscant Jedi Temple, the Starlight Beacon space station is constructed as part of the series of outreach programs.[49] Launched in 232 BBY,[148] it features a large Jedi temple designed by Palo Hidalla and is placed in the center of dark zones in the Rim to guide travelers[151] and boost the region's transmission times, intended to be the first Beacon of a new galactic communications relay network.[49]
    • A conclave between the Jedi Order and the Republic involving Jedi Master Avar Kriss and Admiral Pevel Kronara of the Republic Defense Coalition is held at Starlight Beacon.[49]
    • The strain from the Jedi mission to Zeitooine leads Dez Rydan to request a transfer to the Starlight Beacon.[138]
    • With the Jedi and the Republic's Starlight program infringing on his territory, and coupled with his family's past conflicts against the Jedi, the Nihil leader, Marchion Ro, instigates the Great Hyperspace Disaster.[49]
    • In hyperspace, the Legacy Run, a Kaniff Yards Class A modular freight transport of the Byne Guild, encounters a Nihil ship and is destroyed.[49] Starships across the galaxy are abruptly knocked out of hyperspace by missiles of debris from the Legacy Run, which also threaten to destroy space stations, moons, as well as planets. The Republic turns to the Jedi for help in saving lives and ending the crisis,[49] and Jedi activity sees a significant increase.[132]
    • Due to being delayed at the Starlight Beacon, Master Avar Kriss and Admiral Pevel Kronara become the first to respond to the disaster in the nearby Hetzal system, coordinating efforts to save citizens from aboard the Third Horizon.[49]

      Starlight Beacon better connected citizens, and the joint Jedi–Republic effort marked a golden age for life in the galaxy.

    • Vernestra Rwoh, having been the Padawan of Stellan Gios, is made a Jedi Knight at the age of sixteen, becoming one of the youngest Knights of the Jedi Order in a generation.[154]
    • Vernestra Rwoh is stranded on a jungle moon with several other individuals, including Avon Starros of the Starros clan, when their transport ship, the Steady Wing, is sabotaged by the Nihil.[96]
    • The Jedi Wayseeker Orla Jareni, Jedi Knight Dez Rydan, Jedi Padawan Reath Silas, and Jedi Master Cohmac Vitus, as well as the cargo ship Vessel's Captain Leox Gyasi, co-pilot Affie Hollow, and the navigator Geode are ripped out of hyperspace as a result of the Great Disaster. They take refuge in a seemingly abandoned Amaxine space station.[138]
    • Aboard the Amaxine station, The Jedi passengers of the Vessel are disturbed by dark visions. Believing that a set of four binding statues contained the dark side influence, the Jedi take away the Force artifact for purification in the Sith shrine located beneath the Coruscant Jedi Temple. However, they are proven wrong, and realize that the statues had contained something else.[138]
    • A series of Emergences come to threaten star systems across the galaxy.[49]
    • Following the First Emergence in the Ab Dalis system, the Nihil attack an evacuation convoy belonging to Garello Technologies.[49]
    • The Nihil attack Trymant IV as the Trymant IV disaster occurs. Zeen Mrala joins Lula Talisola's group of Jedi Padawans in defending Bralanak City from hyperspace debris and raiders led by[155] the Eye of the Nihil, Marchion Ro.[49]
    • The San Tekka clan, having risen from a family of hyperspace prospectors in the outer reaches of the galaxy to a dynasty privy to leading technology that allows Chancellor Soh's Republic to continue expanding safely to new areas about a century ago, operates alongside the galactic government as it responds to the Great Disaster.[49]
    • While restoring the statues aboard the Amaxine station, the Jedi are attacked by the Nihil. To defend themselves against overwhelming forces, the Jedi are forced to destroy the statues to unleash what it contained. A group of Drengir, who were put into stasis by the Sith through the binding statues long ago, are thus awakened from their slumber. While the Vessel's crew escape amidst the chaos, several Drengir are released into open space in the process.[138]
    • The tragic poet Omar Berenko is reputed for residing at the Varykino artists' retreat on Naboo.[49] Centuries before the year 22 BBY, the controversial Berenko was kidnapped from a scenic balcony overlooking the lakes after penning the disturbing and visionary epic poem titled Defense of Naboo in the Room of Morning Mists.[11]

      Omar Berenko penned the disturbing epic Defense of Naboo at his scenic lake retreat at Varykino.

    • The Jedi High Council convenes to discuss the threat of the Nihil, and after a contested debate between Grandmaster Lahru and Jedi Masters such as Yarael Poof, Rano Kant, Oppo Rancisis, Keaton Murag, Ada-Li Carro, and the stand-in of Grandmaster Yoda—who was on sabbatical from Council affairs—Ephru Shinn, approves a joint effort between the Jedi and the Republic in a mission against the Nihil as proposed by Chancellor Soh.[49]
    • The Nihil conduct a raid on Elphrona, capturing Jedi Master Loden Greatstorm and farmer Ottoh Blythe. Marchion Ro executes the farmer, intending to keep Geatstorm for future plans.[49]
    • The Battle of Kur occurs. Marchion Ro sends Kassav's Tempest to death in the Kur Nebula, intending to trick the Jedi and the Republic that they had destroyed the Nihil. The Trandoshan Jedi Master Sskeer loses his left arm and blames himself for the death of Master Jora Malli.[49]
    • The medical substance kolto is in common use at this point.[138]
    • Jedi Grandmasters Pra-Tre Veter and Yoda join other Jedi and Republic personnel, amongst them Chancellor Lina Soh, the newly-minted Jedi Knight Keeve Trennis, and the newly-appointed marshal of the Starlight Beacon, Avar Kriss, aboard the latter station in its dedication ceremony for light and life.[156]
    • Sskeer hides a devastating secret that was tearing him apart,[157] drawing a private emotional outburst from him soon after Starlight's dedication.[156]
    • Surik, which formed a part of a phrase used by the Jedi Sskeer, existed by this point.[150]
    • By this point, the Hutt Clan is sanctioned from trading openly in Republic space.[150]
    • Drengir crisis
      • The Drengir abduct children on Sedri Minor.[150]
      • Mission to Sedri Minor[150]
        • The Nihil attack a Hutt Clan ship in the recently–Republic-aligned Kazlin system, prompting the Jedi Sskeer, Keeve Trennis, and the Kotabi bond-twins Terec and Ceret to investigate the resulting wreckage. Tracing the Hutt craft's origin to the Sedri system, Sskeer and Ceret take a T-1 shuttle to Sedri Minor. Avar Kriss and Vernestra Rwoh take the Ataraxia to join Trennis aboard the Hutt craft.[150]
        • On Sedri Minor, Ceret is captured by the Drengir, and Kriss, Terec, Trennis—traveling aboard the Ataraxia—join Sskeer on the moon. Ceret yields to the powerful shadow cast by the Drengir and joins their collective mind. Sharing the same mind with Ceret, Terec also succumbs to the Drengir's influence and becomes crazed. While Kriss and Trennis confront the Drengir at their underground dwelling, Sskeer dispairs that he could not help Terec, who was uncontrollable and inconsolable.[158]
        • While Avar Kriss and Keeve Trennis free Ceret as well as a local boy from the Drengir, they are surrounded by more Drengir, who are accompanied by Sskeer. Sskeer had had his mind joined with the Drengir's collective consciousness, and had grown a botanical, plant-like left arm.[158] Sskeer captures Kriss' crew, and the secret history of the Drengir is revealed.[159]
      • The Jedi and the Republic's Starlight Beacon is threatened by an age-old enemy.[159]
      • The Drengir, hungry for Jedi, arrive at a serene and remote Jedi outpost that the Jedi Lily Tora-Asi lived in.[160]
      • As a consequence of Menir's bitterness and unwillingness to accept any change, the Drengir plague the village Skirl on the planet Batuu.[161]

        Jedi glory was at its peak in the High Republic Era, although dark forces rising in the new frontier of the Outer Rim threatened the Force itself.

    • Towards the end of the High Republic Era, the Jedi Mostema and Sean uncover the corrupt nature of Begamore's President Jamie Brasen after several years of investigation by a top Republic agent.[70][225]
    • By this point, Sean had constructed his lightsaber with a crystal that he bonded with on Ilum.[70] As Ilum and its crystals grew in prominence for the Jedi, the number of Padawans traveling to Zoph for its Zophis crystal is decreased.[84]
    • The Jedi Council sends Mostema and Sean to the Heaven system to investigate the murder of Nan Heli, an executive member of the system's ruling corporation who strongly advocated for the Republic against popular separatist tendencies and who made extensive studies of the Force.[70]

    • The Mining Guild had been founded and operational by this point.[70]
    • At the Nan family villa, Sean is separated from Master Mostema and is saved from the Vermilion Birds pirates by Li Yu.

    • A celebration of the tenth anniversary of the launch of the 74th generation of Irregular occurs in the city of Fire.[70]
    • After defeating the Jade Rats on Fire, red apricot squad traces the enigmatic tenebrae to the Blue Dragon pirates.

    • Red apricot squad forces the Blue Dragon to return the shipment of enigmatic tenebrae by threatening Zhang Níngtao, an official of the Security Bureau who served as the contact between corrupt ranking members of the Heaven-earth corporation and the Dragon.[70]
    • Sean, determined to save the slaves who were held by Zhang, hires his own squadmates out of his own expense to evacuate the slaves.

    • Sean discovers that Zhuang Yuanying of red apricot squad is a member of the native dragon people, who had been persecuted by the Heaven system colonists and used as medical supply. Sean thus realizes that the local justice system ensures the suppression of individual rights, and that the Republic is knowingly ignorant of the persecution of the dragon people—Republic intervention would not solve the issue; not even the dismantling of the Heaven-earth corporation. Prejudice against the native humanoids is deeply ingrained in the culture of the Heaven system's people.[70]
