this area of the galaxy was located below the galactic plane, and sat below the area of the galaxy known as the Inner Zuma. Both areas of the galaxy were located along the border between the Outer Rim Territories and the area of the Unknown Regions known as Wild Space. The Outer Zuma was made up of four galactic sectors: Fusai, Ikenomin, Kakani, and Sugai. Much of the Outer Zuma was uncharted until about 1,000 years before the Battle of Yavin. Several centuries before the Battle of Yavin, the Inner and Outer Zuma regions were considered part of the Unknown Regions, until explorers began scouting their locations and pushing the boundaries of known space ever outward. However, eddies and sinkholes in the hyperspace continuum in the area led to many lost expeditions and the formation of exceptionally dangerous travel routes.
