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? Commented Jun 29, 2015 at 0:45

    If Coruscant is the bright center of the universe, then Tatooine is the planet that it's furthest from. Commented Jun 29, 2015 at 1:00

    @LeoObsessedwithStarWars - I don't think Organic Marble was saying that seriously, I'm pretty sure he was making a joke.

    @LeoObsessedwithStarWars - It's generally considered bad form to edit your question to invalidate existing answers.

    @Richard - You know as well as I do that he meant within the same galaxy, or at least not our own planet.

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:

    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 - 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.

    @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.

    This chart always makes me wonder why after all these thousands of years, there are still unknown regions

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…

    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.

    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. Commented Jun 29, 2015 at 14:37

    This answers fails the "in the Star Wars Galaxy" criteria. Commented Jun 29, 2015 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. Commented Jun 30, 2015 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 -- 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. Commented Jun 30, 2015 at 12:10
