History

With fewer natural resources—and therefore a smaller population—than many neighboring regions, the Mid Rim was a territory where residents worked hard for everything they had. Several planets built up impressive economies, and pirate raiders often hid in the relatively unexplored spaces far from major trade routes.

Circa 4,000 BBY the Mid Rim was known as the Frontier or Galactic Frontier, as it was the limit of the then explored galaxy.

During the Clone Wars, control of the Mid Rim fluctuated between the Confederacy of Independent Systems and the Galactic Republic. Towards the end of the war, most CIS forces were repulsed to the Outer Rim.

Following the Declaration of a New Order, a series of Imperial academies were established throughout the Mid Rim. It was heavily patrolled by the Empire, which feared that it was ripe for the Rebellion to set up bases there.

As the Empire withdrew, the Mid Rim remained one of the few places unquestionably controlled by the Empire. After the Battle of Endor, it housed many hidden Imperial bases and makeshift shipyards. Many rival Moffs maintained "private empires" in this region on the condition that they supply troops and taxes to legitimate Imperial fleets in the region.

During the time of the return of Palpatine, the Mid Rim was still a significant Imperial power base which kept their massive fleets supplied.

Planets in the Mid Rim included Leritor.[1]
