An eccentric entrepreneur financed an expedition into the Maw, a cluster of black holes in the Outer Rim Territories' Kessel sector by 3643 BBY. The purpose of the expedition was to attempt to chart a course through the Maw.
Around that year, an individual affiliated with one of the two rival governments in the Cold War, fought between the reconstituted Sith Empire and the Galactic Republic, sent a companion of theirs to join the expedition. The entrepreneur's journey into the Maw resulted in many previously uncharted star systems and worlds being catalogued while mapping a course.
Behind the scenes
- Star Wars: The Old Republic (First mentioned)
Notes and references
- Star Wars: The Old Republic—Investigation Crew Skill mission: "Into the Maw"
- Per the reasoning here, Act I of Star Wars: The Old Republic takes place around 3643 BBY. Since players of The Old Republic can assign their companions on the mission "Into the Maw" independently of the main class storyline at any point during the game, the mission must take place at some point around 3643 BBY.
