The Inner Rim, also called the Inner Rim Planets or the Inner Rim Territories, was a region of the galaxy between the Colonies and the Expansion Region.



It was originally just called "The Rim" when settled 20,100 BBY. It was expected to be the farthest extent of the known Galaxy for centuries, but the Expanded Rim (later renamed the Expansion Region) was opened within a hundred years of the Inner Rim.

21 BBY, during the Clone Wars, the 4th Constitutional Amendment gave Galactic Republic worlds in the Core, Colonies, and Inner Rim more voting power than worlds in the Expansion Region and beyond. Many of these worlds seceded and joined the Confederacy of Independent Systems

During the reign of Palpatine, the Galactic Empire ruthlessly controlled the Inner Rim. Rather than rebel, many residents chose to flee to the Outer Rim Territories. After the Battle of Endor, the region was held by the Empire, despite its unpopularity, for far longer than expected (until 9 ABY); many later resented the New Republic's sluggishness in liberating the region. Many worlds, despite joining the New Republic, were openly afraid that the government was not strong enough to maintain power. Their concerns were borne out following the return of Palpatine, when the Empire reclaimed most of the Inner Rim.
