    Well the 'Core' and 'Rim' are from the films... so. Though, when I heard the 'Colonies' in TROS my heart skipped a beat.

    The Leia: Princess of Alderaan manga of all places actually gave us Lonera's region!

    Expansion Region --- you'll finally have more than just Kerkoidia in that section now @AdmiralNick22

    Sure! I'll post the imgur link I just made hopefully that should make it viewable for everyone.



    It's a very interesting place to establish a seemingly important NR world. I wonder, @jasonfry did you have any knowledge of this?

    I did not, and that placement's a mistake. The text of Claudia's book says Lonera is "practically in the Expansion Region," which is clearly different than it actually being there.

    But people make mistakes, myself most definitely included. Unless it's overruled, Expansion Region it is.

    If I’m not mistaken, that manga hasn’t officially been translated into English, so that’s just a fan translation and might not be what it actually says. You could also just say that the character was mistaken.

    Ah. My bad. Please keep me informed if it's official or not?

    I wish they'd release Rise to Power. Just for the map at least, haha!

    Do we even know the status of the game at this point?

    Huh, there's another generic mobile game coming out? I didn't hear that over the sound of Squadrons being launched. ;)

    Well, it was announced in 2017... so it's probably not coming out. It hasn't been officially canceled, though.

    I wonder what other games LFL folks play during paid workhours in their offices we will never see or learn more about...
    There was an interview once with, forgot who, that said as much that they have access to unfinished playeable versions.

    With all the strange beautiful and unique worlds we got, I was wondering about the odd ones out.

    We got hollow planets like Naboo with no magma core filled with loads of water, living worlds like Sekot, other hollow planet concepts with the Aleena underworld an entire different ecosystem, or Yoda arc's Force World with the Priestesses underground inside a planet with floating islands. The galaxy is more diverse than just standard planets and features all kind of fictional and fantastical variations. Dyson Spheres like the Mortis Monolith even. Centerpoint station also is a nice hollow world concept that, not by design but later generations evolved into a settled place. Space cities like Nespis VIII even though artificial look like flatearthers dream come true or MCUs Asgard kinda if overgrown enough to look natural instead of artificial.

    Can we list all these odd ones and special places that are non-standard configuration?

    It looks like Ruusan has floating islands in canon, as per Bounty Hunters #3.

    There's also Legends-era Kessel that was essentially shaped like a giant potato, though now it's just a regular planet in canon through Rebels and Solo.

    I still have hope that a mining accident turns it into a canon potatoe for the post ROTJ era ;)

    Ha! Well, that idea would fit for timelines that include Rebels, like what Joe Bongiorno does on his website.
