The Commonwealth RP Timeline

The Galactic Standard Calendar is the standard calendar system used to reference all of Star Wars, and is based on the Battle of Yavin (BBY/ABY), from Star Wars IV: A New Hope and the destruction of the first Death Star during the Galactic Civil War.


The Galactic Calendar is the in-universe calendar system adopted by the Galactic Senate following the Treaty of Coruscant (BTC/ATC). This is the calendar system that would be used by our characters.
