this is the name given to the areas of the galaxy just outside outside the Core Worlds, which were settled during the early expansion periods of the Old Republic. The Colonies eventually grew into industrial and metropolitan centers, but these were heavily raided during the Emperor's New Order. During the early years of the New Republic, many of these worlds were freed from Imperial control and used as launch points for the Republic's fight to regain Coruscant.
this was the collective name given to the various hives of insectile creatures that were believed to have included the Killik race. At the Colony's height of growth and expansion, which occurred some five years after the Galactic Alliance defeated the Yuuzhan Vong, there were some 375 different hives, all acting together to carry out the Will of the Colony. The expansion of the Colony was traced by to an event known as Ub Ruur, or The Crash, when the Unu hive discovered the burned body of Raynar Thul. Until Thul's arrival, the Colony had existed for centuries as a small collection of hives deep in the Unknown Regions. After Thul was nursed back to health, he became the first true Joiner. His complete submission to the Will of the Colony gave the insect hives a connection to the Force, and showed them life in other forms. Under the guidance of UnuThul, the Unu hive became the dominant hive in the Colony, and the Colony flourished. New hives were established with surprising regularity, and the Colony began taking over planets that were very close to the borders of Chiss space. The Colony expanded its use of the Joiners, who transported goods to the Colony's worlds and accepted no real payment. Instead, they carried shine-balls and other items produced by the Colony back to the Outer Rim, where they were traded for more supplies. In this way, the Colony established trade relations with many planets. Unknown to even UnuThul, the rise of the Colony was being directed by the Gorog hive. This so-called Dark Nest served as the unconscious Will of the Colony, and was led by Lomi Plo and Welk. The two Dark Jedi were powerful enough to hide their actions, and the other hives of the Colony simply refused to believe that it existed. When the Gorog began capturing Chiss and using their bodies to feed their larvae, it directed the Colony to expand toward Chiss space. This nearly led to a war between the Colony and the Chiss near Qoribu, which was narrowly averted when Luke Skywalker and the Jedi Order brokered a solution. To appease the Chiss and ensure the continued survival of the Colony, entire hives were relocated to uninhabited worlds within the Utegetu Nebula. The appearance of the Fizz, which seemed to attack only Killiks, brought the conflict between the Colony, the Chiss, and the Galactic Republic to another head about a year later.
Coming of the New Star
this was one of the many references to the rogue planet Zonama Sekot, used by an obscure culture deep in the Unknown Regions of the galaxy.
this was Garm Bel Iblis' alias in his own anti-Empire group, used during the years following the Battle of Endor.
Commandoes of the Confederacy
this was the name of the military force that was created from the militias of those credit-poor star systems that chose to support Count Dooku and the Confederacy of Independent Systems, during the early stages of the Clone Wars. Rather than supplying manufacturing or financial support to the Separatists - like the Commerce Guild or the Techno Union - these star systems sent their military forces to fight back against the stagnation of the Old Republic.
Commission for the Preservation of the New Order
formed by the Emperor Palpatine at the beginning of his reign, the Commission for the Preservation of the New Order (COMPNOR, for short) was created to provide the galxay's idealistic youths a vehicle for removing the chaos of the Old Republic's death. Palpatine quickly saw the advantages of the youth movement during the height of the Clone Wars, when the group was first formed as the Commission for the Protection of the Republic. Palpatine began subtly twisting it to his own use, as a vehicle for instilling the basic tenets of the New Order into everyday galactic life.
Commission for the Protection of the Republic
known as COMPOR, this was the affiliation of teenagers who believed that the Old Republic should remain in control of the galaxy. COMPOR was formed during the early stages of the Clone Wars, and gained power as the Separatists fought harder with each battle. The group was one of the first to establish pro-human membership rules and discriminate against other races, although their motivations were based on the make-up of the Separatist leadership. COMPOR members saw that Muuns, Gossams, Neimoidians, and Geonosians were at the forefront of the Confederacy of Independent Systems, so these races became the object of their vehemence. When Chancellor Palpatine named himself Emperor, COMPOR followed close behind in its support, becoming COMPNOR, the Commission for the Preservation of the New Order.
Commodities Exchange Cathedral
located in the city of New Escrow, on the planet Aargau, this was the headquarters of the Intergalactic Banking Clan during the last years of the Old Republic.
this political alliance of nine sectors and their planets, including the worlds of the Vorzyd System, worked toward a common set of goals and needs during the last decades of the Old Republic. The Commonality was ruled from the planet Columex, which provided access to the nine sectors via the perlemian Trade Route.
this wide, grass-filled park marked the very center of the city of Ussa, on the planet Bellassa. During the last years of the Old Republic, The Commons was a beautiful place where the citizens of Ussa could meet and contemplate the possibilities for a peaceful existence. However, when the Empire took control of Bellassa during the months following the end of the Clone Wars, much of the greenery was pulled up and eliminated to make way for a garrison and governmental office space.
