Utaruun was a terrestrial planet located in the Utaruun system, a part of the Arkanis sector in the Slice portion of the Outer Rim Territories. Utaruun was located on the Old Corellian Run hyperlane between the Austan and Tatoo systems.[1]

Utaruun originally served as a minor agriworld situated on the super-hyperroute known as the Corellian Run. When that hyperspace route changed its course[1] at some point between 11,000 BBY and 4000 BBY[2] and as a result no longer ran through Utaruun, the world remained on the Old Corellian Run but became abandoned. During the century leading up to[1] 43 ABY,[3] however, Rodian colonists began to move there.[1]

Behind the scenes[]

Utaruun was introduced in the 2009 reference book The Essential Atlas, authored by Daniel Wallace and Jason Fry, which placed it in grid square R-16.[1]

  2. The Essential Atlas establishes that by 4000 BBY the course of the Corellian Run super-hyperroute no longer included the hyperlane segment eventually known as the Old Corellian Run. In addition, The Essential Guide to Warfare depicts that same section of the hyperlane as still being a part of the Corellian Run by 11,000 BBY.
  3. The main section of The Essential Atlas, which includes a description of Utaruun, ends with a mention of Luke and Ben Skywalker's journey across the galaxy, the beginning of which is depicted in Fate of the Jedi: Outcast. The events of that novel are dated to 43 ABY by The Essential Reader's Companion.
