PRIMEVAL ERA

This is the inchoate beginning of the universe, lost to the annals of history,

but known in legends and records of the ancient Firstborn, the earliest races spawned

by the Celestials. It is the time of the evil Architects and the Old Ones, who sought to usurp rule

of the galaxy from the benevolent Celestials. Travel was available freely through Hypergates and Infinity

Gates. Three major conflicts emerged at this time, the Empyrean wars, the War of Temporal Planes, and the

Twilight Wars, which lasted until the formation of the Republic. These three later became known as the Cosmic Wars.

 

37,000 – 25,000 years before the Battle of Yavin

This is an ancient time before a great Republic united the galaxy. A time before the first Jedi

emerged to serve as the guardians of peace and justice. In this era, mysterious alien civilizations

with unimaginable powers ruled their own dominions. It is an era of legend, an era before the discovery of

hyperspace travel, before the foundation of the Old Republic, and before the philosophies of the Jedi and the Sith were codified.

 

 

25,000 – 1,000 years before the Battle of Yavin

The Old Republic was the legendary government

that united a galaxy under the rule of the Senate.  In this era,

the Jedi are numerous, and serve as guardians of peace and justice.

The Tales of the Jedi comics take place in this era, chronicling the immense

wars fought by the Jedi of old, and the Empire of the Ancient Sith who sought domination.

 

1,000 – 0 years before the Battle of Yavin

For a thousand years, the Galactic

Republic maintained democracy in the galaxy with

the Jedi as its guardians of peace and justice.  But a Sith plot,

a millennia in the making, engulfs the galaxy in the Clone Wars, leading to

the ascendancy of the Emperor and the fall of the Jedi.  This is the era that contains the prequel trilogy.

 

 

0 – 5 years after the Battle of Yavin

An outcry of resistance begins to spread across

the galaxy in protest to the new Empire's tyranny. Cells

of the Rebellion fight back, and the Galactic Civil War begins. 

This era begins with the Rebel victory that secured the Death Star plans,

now known as the Battle of Yavin, and ends a year after the death of the Emperor

high over the forest moon of Endor.  The Rebellion starts to reform itself into a body of government,

first as the Alliance of Free Planets, and later the New Republic.  This is the era that contains the classic trilogy.

 

 

 

5 – 25 years after the Battle of Yavin

Having defeated the Empire at the Battle of Endor,

the Rebel Alliance must now transform itself from a militant resistance

force into a functioning galactic government.  As Imperial territory is reclaimed,

the New Republic suffers growing pains, having to fend off insurrections, Imperial loyalists, and

wayward warlords.  Also, Luke Skywalker, the last of the Jedi, begins training apprentices, rebuilding the Jedi order.

 

 

 

 

25 – 30 years after the Battle of Yavin

The Jedi Knights are now a hundred strong. 

The New Republic has signed a peace treaty with what little remains

of the Empire.  The galaxy is finally enjoying a peaceful respite from decades of war. 

It's at this time that a horrible alien menace invades the Republic from beyond known space. 

The Yuuzhan Vong lay waste to entire worlds in their scourge, as depicted in the novels of the New Jedi Order.

 

 

Legacy of the Force

37 – 140 years after the Battle of Yavin

This is the era of Luke Skywalker's legacy:

The Jedi Master has unified the order into a cohesive group of

powerful Jedi Knights. Coruscant has begun to undergo reconstruction from the

Yuuzhan Vong invasion, and the Galactic Alliance weathers internal pressures.  However, as this era begins,

planetary interests threaten to disrupt this time of relative peace and Luke is plagued by visions of an approaching darkness.
 

 

N/A

Label designated by Lucasfilm to indicate stories

re-imaginings of the Classic Trilogy published by Dark Horse Comics as well as

some of the shorts in the anthology series, Star Wars Tales.  The designation allows for both serious

and humorous stories to be told without concern for the extensive web of continuity that makes up the Expanded Universe.

 

 

 

 

37,000 years before the Battle of Yavin – 140 years after the Battle of Yavin

This designation covers the entire history of the Star Wars

Expanded Universe, from the period of the ancient Jedi and the Sith Empire

to the rise of Emperor Palpatine and the Clone Wars, the fall of the Jedi, the period of

Imperial domination, the era of Rebellion which includes the Classic Trilogy, the formation of the

New Republic and the scourge of the Yuuzhan Vong.  Infinities stories are included in a separate section on the bottom.
