Fringes of Space
The Edge of the Galaxy
The Tion Cluster is a star cluster found in the outer rim. The sector was originally populated by human-led sleeper ships from Coruscant due to the difficulties of hyperspace back then. The sector was home to both the Tion Hegemony and the Kingdom of Cron. Due to the tensions between both factions and the Old Republic, the two factions joined the Confederacy for Independent Systems (CIS, Separatist) during the Clone Wars. This gave the entirety of the Tion Cluster to the CIS. After the fall of the Old Republic, the Empire divided the cluster into several different territories, yet allowed for most of the systems to maintain their independence. After the Battle of Turkana, the Empire invaded the cluster to find the Rebel Alliance’s hidden base.
