TIMELINE

The rise and annexation of The Pentastar Alignment: (4 – 12 years ABY*)

The rise of the First Order: (5 – 21 years ABY*)

The events of The Force Awakens and Red Moon Rising: (30 years ABY*)

From Wookiepedia’s entry regarding the Pentastar Alignment: The Pentastar Alignment was annexed by Admiral Gilad Pellaeon in 12 ABY, becoming part of the Imperial Remnant. The Reaper became Pellaeon’s flagship until its destruction at the Battle of Celanon in 13 ABY. Before 19 ABY, (Grand Moff Ardus) Kaine’s homeworld Sartinaynian—renamed Bastion—became the Imperial Remnant’s capital, remaining thus for over a century.**

**I had nothing to do with this Wookiepedia entry, but it does provide some insight into the many twisted webs of writing for the Star Wars universe. By absorbing the worlds and military might of the Alignment with Admiral Paelleon’s fleet to form the “Imperial Remnant”, this entry clearly connects the Pentastar Alignment with the events after Tim Zahn’s Thrawn trilogy which set off the New Republic era and a whole new plethora of Star Wars stories. I happily agree with these additions to the canon.
