Greetings, Star Wars fans and readers of the Echo Base News Forums!

Today, I will write and try to analyze the year 18 BBY (Years Before Battle of Yavin.) So lets start:

Let's transport ourselves to the year just after the events of Episode III. The Empire is still trying to establish itself across the galaxy. Back in that year, the remote places of the galaxy like the Expansion Region or the Wild Space or even Hutt Space was completely out of Imperial control.

Terror is common across the galaxy. The Jedi Purge is on its peak and if you were accused of helping even a Jedi youngling, they would probably would end up in a jail, and that was the best option, comparatively!! An active Rebel movement was not formed yet, though, and the only ones who fought the Empire were the C.I.S. holdouts.

After putting yourself in the environment of the year, we will look one by one at the major events of the year. We will also report the deaths and births of the period.

The Ghorman Massacre event was one of the numerous atrocities committed by Imperials during the reign of Palpatine. It was also the first big event of the year when thousands of Ghormans were slaughtered.

Jedi Master Plett turned his fortress in Plawal on Belsavis to a sanctuary for fugitive Jedi hunted by Palpatine.This move was made by several prominent Jedi who survived the Order 66 during the following years.

Emperor Palpatine made a very important move that was essential for the establishment of the Empire. He constructed the Eye of Palpatine: a colossal, asteroid-shaped super dreadnought constructed at the behest of Palpatine. "The biggest, most dangerous, most secret vessel of them all, a supership, a dreadnaught, a battlemoon. One the enemy wouldn't see coming until it was too late." - Triv Pothman, commenting on the Eye.

Han Solo met his cousin Thrackan Sal-Solo, who sold him back to Garris Shrike.

Maybe the most important event was the uprise of and battle on Naboo. Stormtroopers were sent to Theed, the siege ending with Queen Apailana and her Jedi protectors being killed by the notorious 501st Legion. Naboo was placed under military rule after that and a new queen was appointed. Kylantha acted as the new Queen of Naboo after the invasion.

Naboo was placed under military rule after that and a new queen was appointed. Kylantha acted as the new Queen of Naboo after the invasion.

At the end of the year, Darth Vader, in one of his numerous fights over the years of the Empire, defeated the clones of Sa Cuis and defeated the Dark Jedi Sheyvan in a lightsaber duel.

The Battles that occcured in the year were:
*Battle of Naboo
*Ghorman Massacre

The births that were reported of prominent figures on 18 BBY were:
*On Corellia: Corran Horn, Mirax Terrik, Iella Wesiri
*On Alderaan: Wade Vox
*On Tatooine: Rookie One

The deaths that occurred on 18 BBY were the following:
*The most important was probably Queen Apailana.
*On Coruscant: Zoner, Yrael Charel, Mas Sirrach, Dejah Duare, *Haninum Tyk Rhinann, Jenna Zan Arbor
*Haninum Tyk Rhinann, Jenna Zan Arbor
*On the Jedi Asteroid: Toma, Raina Quill, Wil Asani, Ry-Gaul, Garen *Muln, Fy-Tor-Ana, Boar Benu, Oryon
*Aboard the Eye of Palpatine: Callista Ming, Geith Eris

This Year in Star Wars history

By John Laskaris

Greetings Star Wars fans and readers of the Echo Base News Forums!

Today, I will write and try to analyze the year 23 Before Battle of Yavin.
So lets transport ourselves to the year just after the events of Episode II. The galaxy seems to be in peace but over the last 2 years (25BBY-23BBY) the so called ''Separatist Crisis'' has started across the galaxy. Imagine you are a citizen of Naboo or Coruscant:you have just left behind the events of the greedy Trade Federation attack on Naboo and now see that a big crisis might lead into a great war that will cut the galaxy in 2 parts...the Republic...and the Sepratists.

The Techno Union, Trade Federation and various other Commerce Guilds also Corporate Alliances are in talks with Count Dooku, aka Darth Tyrranus, who was responsible in gathering the CIS High Council for Darth Sidious. Of course, Mak Plain and Lott Dod, the 2 representatives of the Inter Galactic Banking Clan and Trade Federation, try to convince about the neutrality of their companies.
From the other side of the galaxy, back on Corusant, Chancellor Palpatine holds many debates with Separatist friendly Senators, with Tikkes and Maalastar as representatives. The major players on the galaxy's politics walk on tight rope and all waiting for the inevitable big conflict.

Now let's speak with events, battles, deaths and births that occurred on this year just before the great Clone Wars....

The first major event that happened at the beginning of the year was when many Gotals fled to Atzerri for unknown (to the galaxy) reasons.

Dmitree, the capital of Ord Thdoen, was devastated by an earthquake, destroying many big pieces of galactic historical records.

The most important might event was that the Trade Federation quit shipping food to Kabal due to increased Republic taxation on the Sharlissian Trade Corridor-Route. With this move, Viceroy Nute Gunray tried to show his dislike for Republic actions and was declared an illegal Viceroy in the Senate by Lott Dod. In actuality, Dod and Gunray always communicated and tried to play games for the Senate to convince the galaxy about the Trade Federation's neutrality.

HoloNet News networks were attacked by Slicers while the Duros Chief Representative Officer, Hoolidan Keggle, criticized the other big media sources, TriPlanetary Press and the Encyclopedia Galactica, that was published during the State of the Union address.

Finally, we have Podracing as a major event on Caprior.

*Mission to Kuat

*Jade on Miko
*Londrah on AfEl
*Judder Page on Corulag
*Zan Pike
*Zu Pike

*Larbo on Kuat
*Everen Ettene and Ludwin Katarkus on Virgillia 7

So here you go...another full info article about 23BBY. You know exactly what happened this year now! Thank you for reading. Coming next week....22BBY Pt1.!

Today, we will see the big year of 19 BBY. Imagive you live on every system you wish, from Bastion to Centrality, and you have war under your head for 3 years. Well, this is the year that everything in the Rise of Imperial Era came to a climax. Big figures from both sides of the Clone Wars were killed and the image of the galaxy changed forever. From the Old Republic, the galaxy passed to the Empire and New Republic Era, leaving a history of thousand of years back to the archive. Lets see more specific events though:
Palptine is caught by Grievous and kidnapped, taken back to his flagship. The flagship was eventually destroyed in the Battle of Coruscant.
Count Dooku was killed by The Chosen One aboard the last flaghsip of the CIS, the Invisible Hand. After Tyrannus's death, Grievous became CIS Head of State and the Separatists suffered a great loss, their inspirational leader.
Skywalker and Obi-Wan Kenobi's mission to rescue Supreme Chancellor Palpatine proved to be successful after Skywalker barely managed to crash-land the Invisible Hand on Coruscant's surface.
The Delegation of 2000 took place on Coruscant between the Republic loyalists and Palpatine to determine whether or not he would give up his powers after General Grievous was dead.
 Palpatine revealed to Skywalker that he was Darth Sidious.
General Grievous was killed by Kenobi on Utapau. After this battle, Viceroy Nute Gunray succeeded him as Head of State and became the last leader of the Separatists.
Mace Windu attempted to kill Palpatine after Skywalker revealed that Palpatine was Sidious, but failed and was killed by both Sidious and the manipulated Skywalker.
Skywalker became Darth Vader, Sidious' third and final apprentice.
 The clone troopers led by Vader raided the Jedi Temple. The atrocities of the Sith Lord included even youngling killings after all knights and masters were dead.
The Great Jedi Purge began with Order 66. Known Jedi Masters that were killed during that Order included Plo Koon, Aayla Secura, Ki-Adi-Mundi and many others.

Part II Coming Soon!

So, we will continue with year 19 BBY just where we left off: the beginning of the Jedi Purge.
A 501st Legion squad collected an energy crystal during the Battle of Mygeeto to power the Death Star's superlaser.
A homing beacon in the Jedi Temple was altered by Yoda and Kenobi to preserve the Jedi Order. Even though they accomplished this, almost no Jedi survived.

The massacre of the Separatist Council on Mustafar by Darth Vader dissolved the Confederacy of Independent Systems. Nute Gunray was the last leader of the Separatists after Dooku and Grievous were slaughtered by the same boy that ruined his plans on Naboo years ago. The leaders of IGBC and Techno Union, Wat Tambor and San Hill, were found dead along with Shu Mai, Tikkes. Po Nudo, Passas Argente, Rune Gunray, Rune Haako and other aids. With this action, the great Clone Wars ended with the dissolution of the Confederacy of Independent Systems. The Confederacy was reduced to various Separatist holdouts; these minor holdouts with Separatists warlords were spread across the galaxy.
The Galactic Empire, along with the New Order, was founded by the self-declared Emperor Palpatine, taking the place of the Galactic Republic, thus putting the galaxy directly under the control of the Sith. The Galactic Senate became the Imperial Senate. The Order of the Sith Lords took over the galaxy with Sidious as its ruler.

Yoda and Sidious dueled in the Grand Convocation Chamber of the Senate Building. Kenobi and Vader dueled on Mustafar; Vader lost and was made into a cyborg Sith apprentice. Vader constructed his new lightsaber.

Padmé Amidala's funeral was conducted on Naboo after her death on Polis Massa.
Jar Jar Binks, former acting Senator, succeeded Amidala as the representative of Naboo's sector until later years before the Battle on Yavin.
Onboard the Tantive IV, Bail Prestor Organa ordered C-3PO's memory to be erased by Captain Raymus Antilles in order to keep the locations of the Skywalker twins a secret.
The first Death Star's construction was moved from Geonosis to Despayre with Wilfhuff Tarkin as its supervisor, and later, Grand Moff.
Yoda's exiled himself to Dagobah via his escape pod, and Kenobi exiled himself to Tatooine. The House of Organa adopted Leia Skywalker on Alderaan, and the Lars family adopted Luke Skywalker on Tatooine. A Jedi conclave gathered on Kessel.
The Trade Federation, along with other commerce guilds, such as the IGBC and Tecnho Union were imperialized after CIS dissolution. Sentepeth Findos was the last Viceroy of the Trade Federation. The Corporate Alliance, Techo Union, Trade Federation, Inter Galactic Banking Clan and other Sepratists guild were never referred to as active or independent in the galactic history.
The Emperor's Citadel was constructed on Byss for Palpatine in an attempt to cheat death. He also started building the Emperor's Palace on Corusant.
Kota's Militia was exiled from their original headquarters and took refuge on a space station over Nar Shaada. Kenobi found Ferus Olin, the former Padawan of Siri Tachi, on Bellassa and foiled an Imperial plot to execute a mass murder of the residents of Bellassa's capital city, Ussa. Olin found Jedi Master Garen Muln in the Crystal Caves of Ilum. Kenobi stopped Inquisitor Sancor from discovering information about Amidala's death on the asteroid Polis Massa. Olin and Trever Flume found Jedi Master Fy-Tor-Ana, now going by the name of Solace, in the underlevels of Coruscant, with the help of Dexter Jettster. Olin was captured by Imperial Stormtroopers in the Jedi Temple and then interrogated by Inquisitor Malorum.

Olin, with the help of Queen Apailana and Boss Rugor Nass, defeated Malorum and temporarily rid Naboo of its Imperial presence. Olin helped Palpatine against his will on the planet Samaria. Roan Lands and Dona Telamark were rescued by Solace, Oryon, and Flume.

Part III Coming Soon!!!

So fanatic readers of our column!Back with a new article after some time due to being very busy!Ejoy reading.

The year 34 BBY is a period of time many people do not know accurate details about. You see, the episodes start on 32 BBY and end on 4 ABY. We will see today the state of the galaxy and events 2 years before the Naboo Invasion by the Trade Federation and possibly what lead the greedy Neimoidians to such an act.
 Westa Impeveri defeated Karid Blakken in an election for senior counselor of the Hedrett Town Council.

Dark Jedi Karae Nalvas seduces Alec's Padawan Saren Valek to the dark side and starts training Valek. Alec will chase Nalvas and Valek for years.
Padmé Amidala meets fellow Apprentice Legislator Silya Shessaun at a summit on Alderaan. Amidala becomes the Princess of Theed. This was the first step from that young woman to finally be Queen of Naboo and later Senator of the Chromel sector.
Jedi Master Adi Gallia saves Qui-Gon Jinn's life by preventing him from eating Konkeel pie during an official banquet organized by Hewett senators.

Dren Melne returns to Naboo after working as a mercenary pilot and starts a relationship with Essara Till, a fellow ex-mercenary pilot.
The births that happened on this year and are truly important to be written down are the following: (the birth of Tyber Zann on Anaxes being the most prominent.)
 Kharys on Skye
Tallisibeth Enwandung-Esterhazy on Vorzyd V
Hanna Ding Lena Missa Bene Sintas Vel On Haruun Kal
Terrel Nakay
 Tyber Zann on Anaxes

The deaths also are not so important but must be noted down.
Randil Sal

Next week we come to the year 17 BBY to see the establishment of Imperial Power. Thank you for reading and supporting the column once again.

Greetings faithful readers of the Echo Base News.The column about what happened each year in Star Wars history is back and I am with you again. Various reasons and events kept this column sleeping the last month but here we are again hoping in a new year fresh start.
So for 2012 we are starting with the year 39 Before Battle of Yavin or 3,614 years after the Coruscant Treaty, or if you want, Year 4 before the Great ReSynchronization. It is a year that comes shortly before the Naboo Crisis and a long period of wars that will follow from 32 BBY to 4 ABY, almost 40 years of continued crises from the passing of the Old to the New Republic.
It is often said that those years before 32 BBY are the Big Peace time in the galactic history and I have to agree with those who say this. You see during these years each player in galactic history prepared for their plans and worked on their schemes. Another reason I agree is that we seldom have big fights or conflicts in these years.
So we start the year with the Republic having its first survey on Dagobah. This planet which was totally unknown to the Republic people before that year starts to be formulated as a picture in the eyes of the galaxy (and we all know its part in the latter galactic history), but even if we don't, you will learn it here in the next posts.

The only battle or ...war we have this year is the Bitthaevrians of Guiteica, who were warlike, bipedal sapients native to Guitica in the Kadok Regions, having started the conflict with the Republic. Eventually, of course,they where defeated.
Another prominent event of the time was Willhuff Tarkin's meeting with Raith Sienar.Of course its unknown what the two said; but, I personally go with the speculations that they spoke about Death Star and an imperial scheme about the latter years in the Rise of the Empire era
Also we have Professor Murk Lundi's survey for a Sith holocron, the same time that we have Shmi and her son Anakin take refuge from Space Pirates on Tatooine only to be enslaved by Gardulla the Hutt in her Palace.
Finally we have Tristram becoming the Godking of Masterhome and his Era of prosperity begins. Tristram was the Godking of Abonshee, supreme monarch of the Anointed People, from c. 39 BBY to at least 0 ABY. A shrewd ruler, he took his people to peace and prosperity and was also responsible of Abonshee joining the Alliance to Restore the Republic in their fight against the Galactic Empire.
The only big battle we have in this period is the Battle of Baltizaar, The Battle of Baltizaar was an attack on the planet Baltizaar by the Bando Gora, a cult of Force-worshipping criminals.
While we have Arawynne born on Datar, Mako Spince on Corellia and Kornell Divin on Tatooine. In the same year Nelia Fry and Grove Fry died.
