I'm trying to write a Star Wars story in which Terminus attacks a planet that I've made up and I need to know what kind of beings live on the planet. Terminus is an Outer-Rim planet.

  • Was there something wrong with my question? I have researched everywhere and can't seem to find any info. – apotter96 May 2 '13 at 14:14
  • I don't think there's anything wrong with your question, but perhaps you could provide more information: where (as in, in what Star Wars work) is Terminus mentioned? What do you know about the planet other than its general location and name? – Martha May 2 '13 at 14:18
  • @Martha Well, I didn't know anything about Terminus until I found a map of the Star Wars galaxy and found it in the Outer Rim, then I began the research but found no info on it about its races – apotter96 May 2 '13 at 14:20

    OK, so put that in your question: "I found this planet name on a map of the Star Wars galaxy published in [insert info here], but other than the name and location, it doesn't give any further details." Or something like that. – Martha May 2 '13 at 14:28

This is what I have found.

It was a heavily trafficked shipping center at the edge of the galaxy, not far from the Red Nebula. It sat at the intersection of the Corellian Trade Spine and Hydian Way. The skies of Terminus were filled with bizarre ships hailing from Wild Space and the Unknown Regions.

Terminus' name and its position as a crucial socioeconomic center at the edge of the galaxy strongly suggest that it is a reference to the planet of the same name that gave rise to a renewed galaxy-spanning empire in Isaac Asimov's Foundation novel series. Furthermore, Asimov's city-planet and one-time galactic capital of Trantor was a partial inspiration for Coruscant.

It appears to be merely a tribute to Isaac Asimov's Foundation series, so I'd be surprised if there was a particularly well developed background story for this planet.

As a side note, I don't think it is a very good idea to write a Star Wars story featuring a planet which was already imported from another universe, especially if you do not intend to write a crossover. But that's just my own opinion.
