What is the planet farthest from Coruscant in the Star Wars Galaxy? I understand that this information might not be available. If it isn't, please tell me.

    Farthest from Coruscant in what regard? Furthest reachable planet? Furthest within the galaxy? Furthest how? – Pᴀᴜʟsᴛᴇʀ2 Jun 29 '15 at 0:45

    If Coruscant is the bright center of the universe, then Tatooine is the planet that it's furthest from. – Organic Marble Jun 29 '15 at 1:00

    @LeoObsessedwithStarWars - I don't think Organic Marble was saying that seriously, I'm pretty sure he was making a joke. – Wad Cheber Jun 29 '15 at 2:03

    @LeoObsessedwithStarWars - It's generally considered bad form to edit your question to invalidate existing answers. – Valorum Jun 29 '15 at 19:05

    @Richard - You know as well as I do that he meant within the same galaxy, or at least not our own planet. – Wad Cheber Jun 29 '15 at 22:11

Within the Galaxy Far, Far Away, it appears - at least from this chart - that the planet furthest from Coruscant is the so-called "planet of the Red Nebula".

To save you from having to search for the relevant planets:

  • Could you give me the link to this chart? – RottenCantaloupe Jun 29 '15 at 1:12

    Three things: One that chart is listing (solar) Systems, not planets. Second, that chat is in no way complete. I didn't look closely enough to say if there are any canon planets missing, but due to how many systems there are in a galaxy, this chart can't have all of them. Further, new planets can get added to the canon. Finally, you might want to remember that this chart is the Legacies canon and not the new Disney canon. Depending on your purpose, this answer is likely what you want. Just some things to consider. – Thoth19 Jun 29 '15 at 3:55

    @Thoth19 - Please read the first sentence of my answer. "...it appears - at least, from this chart". The answer already contains a caveat that it is based on the chart I provided, and nothing else. As far as the distinction between planets and systems, that is an irrelevant point. Planets generally exist within systems, and since the Red Nebula is farthest out on the chart, the planet within it is also the farthest out of all the systems on the chart. – Wad Cheber Jun 29 '15 at 4:00

    @Thoth19 - thanks. I'd actually be happy to be proven wrong, if there is a better answer out there somewhere. I just offered the best answer that I could find relatively easily. – Wad Cheber Jun 29 '15 at 4:05

    This chart always makes me wonder why after all these thousands of years, there are still unknown regions – PlasmaHH Jun 29 '15 at 8:49

Assuming the opening scrawl is correct, I'd say that the single farthest Earth-like planet that we know of (from Coruscant) would be Earth.

A long time ago in a galaxy far, far away…

    He, he that's good ;) – Mithoron Jun 29 '15 at 0:55

    Unfortunately, since the question didn't mention "Earth-like" and since we don't know the direction of the Star Wars galaxy for sure, it could be a different planet in our star system. Actually, even if we did know the direction it could still change based on planetary orbits. – user11521 Jun 29 '15 at 5:22

    Additional note: To be doubly nitpicky -- technically, the scrawl doesn't tell us that the Earth existed at the time of Coruscant, so you can still argue Earth is not a valid answer. Unless you believe E.T. is an Asogian. Then I think you can argue "a long, long time ago" is millions of years, not many billions, so Earth already existed. – ThePopMachine Jun 29 '15 at 14:37

    This answers fails the "in the Star Wars Galaxy" criteria. – Mindwin Jun 29 '15 at 18:34

    @Richard: I think we can safely say, we will positively identify an Earth-like planet in every direction in the Milky Way before we know which the direction of the Star Wars Galaxy. – ThePopMachine Jun 30 '15 at 14:32

If you're talking "in-universe" but aside from The Galaxy itself(but say ones that have actually had civilizations come into contact with The Galaxy still) there are a few options. Yuuzhan-Tar, the original, as well as some of the planets from the companion Galaxies that have had invading hosts enter The Galaxy at prior times are all possible contenders for "farthest known planet from coruscant" in an absolute sense.

  • The text of the question has said "in the Star Wars Galaxy" for a while now, so these planets would not count. – sumelic Jun 29 '15 at 18:48
  • @sumelic -- but that was added because of comments and an answer claiming "Earth", being in a galaxy far, far away. I think that other galaxies mentioned within the Star Wars cannon are true to the spirit of the question. – LindaJeanne Jun 30 '15 at 12:10
