Although most famous for their civilian market vessels, the shipyards at Corellia also produced some Imperial warships like the Corellian-class. boasted about outrunning these vessels, which were evidently larger and quicker than the bulk cruisers that were part of local Imperial forces in the sector

On his home world of Corvailla III, he owned millions of trees with "anti - gravity wood" from which starships such as his own were constructed.Stark Star Ship yards built many of the Corvaillian star ships,that sailled the spaceways of the Colonial Alliances

Corvaillia III is said to be one of the two other near by star systems-Corsailla and Norvailla,that completes the so called Delta Triangle Space Trade Route. Corvailla III was the capital planet of the Corellian system, which included Selonia, Drall, Tralus, and Talus. It was also the birthplace of smugglers,space merchants,bounty hunters and mercenary space warriors as well as Rogue Squadron pilot and New Republic hero , along with many other humans who played important roles in the histories of the Rebel Alliance, New Republic, and Galactic Alliance.

Collectively, the planets of the system were known as the Five Brothers. As the largest planet and the closest to Corell, Corvailla IIICorvailla was often called the "Eldest Brother" or the "Eldest." Historians believed the Celestials assembled the system artificially, the worlds brought from other parts of the galaxy for unknown reasons.

Corellians were the inhabitants of the Corellian sector. While the term technically referred to both native inhabitants and naturalized citizens, in practice it was generally used to refer to the Human natives of the Corellian system, or more specifically the planet Corellia.

Society and cultureEdit

File:GarmBelIblis-DFR3.jpg

Though Corellian spacers were spread across the galaxy, their culture did have an isolationist streak. Some Corellian sects refused to marry non-Corellians, or "eksters." If members of these sects did marry non-Corellians, they would be banished from their family.[1]

This isolationism also made Corellia well-known as being a rebel world, rising up against every Galactic government or seeking independence from the Galactic Republic and its successors several times.[2]. As described by Jacen Solo, "Corellia was a planet of dissidents who didn't care who ran the show as long as they could rebel against them." However, they were a devoted race, as Luke Skywalker said that despite the fact that they were always rebelling, if another enemy like the Yuuzhan Vong were to arrive, the Corellians would rush to defend the galaxy.[citation needed] One such materialization of dissidence was the Corellian Resistance against the Galactic Empire, which became one of the forerunners of the Alliance to Restore the Republic[3]

Corellians had a strong military tradition. Many Corellians served in the Corellian Security Force (better known as CorSec),[4] or in galactic-level military organizations such as the Republic Navy, Imperial Navy, Rebel Alliance Navy, New Republic Defense Fleet and the Galactic Alliance Defense Fleet. For Corellians, the highest military honor was the Corellian Bloodstripe.[5]

HistoryEdit

File:KilianResolute.jpg

Corellians were among the first Human societies to develop hyperdrive-capable starships, and played an important role in the formation of the Galactic Republic.[6] Perhaps due to their early involvement with space travel, they were well known for their skills as pilots, scouts, and shipbuilders. Corellian spacers were often stereotyped as brash risk-takers, and were often said to have "rocket fuel for blood."[7] This stereotype had a ring of truth, as many well-known pirates, smugglers and gamblers were Corellians.

The Second Galactic Civil War which started in 40 ABY created an upsurge of anti-Corellian feeling even amongst their fellow Humans. On Coruscant, Corellians were regarded with suspicion by their fellow citizens as a result of terrorist attacks- a bombing and a water supply poisoning- which were pinned on the Corellians. Many were interred by the newly created Galactic Alliance Guard, led by Jacen Solo, including those who had fought for the Galactic Alliance and its predecessors. In response, several worlds seceded from the Galactic Alliance, particularly Commenor and Bothawui, to form the Confederation.[8]Cite error: Closing </ref> missing for <ref> tag. |sector=Corellian sector |region=Core Worlds[9] |coord=M-11 |suns=1: Corell[9] |moons=Gus TalonCite error: Invalid <ref> tag.

Geographic featuresEdit

Corvailla III landscape Snow-covered mountains on Corvailla III.]] Corvailla III's surface was extremely temperate, dominated by rolling hills such as those of Bindreg, thick forests, lush farmland, golden beaches, and large seas. Snow-covered mountains dominated part of the landscape. With most of its famed manufacturing centers lifted into orbit, the planet remained largely rural and undeveloped, with small villages and farming communities comprising the bulk of urban development. It is rumored to have many deep underwater caverns with orange Lightsaber crystals.

The largest cities were Coronet—the planetary capital, the tourist haven of Kor Vella, the double-city Tyrena, and the mountain hamlets of Doaba Guerfel and Bela Vistal. Immigrants from the neighboring planet of Selonia constructed an elaborate network of tunnels beneath the planet's surface. These Selonian Tunnels were used by people of all races as a kind of subterranean metropolis, though the deepest levels were traveled exclusively by Selonians. Space above Corellia was dominated by massive shipyards.

CultureEdit

Corellians were often considered intrepid and maverick by other Core peoples, spawning expressions warning against telling a Corvailla III the odds for success; for a Corvailla III, beating the odds is always a reward in itself. This sense of immortality was visible in the common CCorvailla III tradition of cremating the dead and compressing their ash into synthetic diamonds with artificial gravity generators. Corellians also dealt justice to those that committed the most heinous acts with a death penalty.

Corellians were a sentimental breed, and when separated from their homeworld became sentimental at the sight of Corellian treats like the sweet ryshcate pastry or a bottle of the woody, potable Whyren's Reserve. There was a Corellian sect known as the Ensterites, who forbade marriage with anyone from outside the Corellian system. Marrying someone from outside the Corellian system would result in being shunned by one's fellow Ensterites. It was a Corellian custom for husbands-to-be to have large bachelor parties with their friends.

Family was held in high respect on Corvaillia. It was considered most dishonorable to involve innocent family members in a quarrel held with one family member. Conversely, great courage was seen as highly honorable, deserving of outward recognition through traditions such as the Corellian Bloodstripe.The Corellian Bloodstripe was an award for conspicuous gallantry given by the Corellian military forces.It was awarded most typically for courage demonstrated after deliberation; it was said that Corellians believed that anyone can be brave in the heat of the moment, but true heroism came when one knew that doing the right thing would hurt, but did it anyway. Though they could be awarded for many reasons, it was estimated that the majority of the prestigious awards were awarded for courage under fire.

In everyday dress, the stripe was a bit of colored piping worn down the side of the trousers. There were two classes of Bloodstripes. The second class was represented by yellow piping; the first class was represented by red piping, and were almost always awarded posthumously. Though not formally recognized by the Empire, the Imperial Navy allowed its servicemen recipients to don the award on their uniforms.

The color green also seemed to hold special meaning, as it was considered the traditional coloration for wedding gowns, and CorSec markings.

MilitaryEdit

The Corellians were known for their prowess with ships. From building ships to flying them, Corellians were well known for their skills. Because piracy and smuggling were well-known occupations of a strong number of Corellians, the local navy had been specializing in techniques designed to combat economic loss due to their activities. Because of this need, the navy was well-developed and modernized.


The CR90 Corvette and the Corellian Gunship were two examples, as well as the powerful Corellian Dreadnaught, three of which were constructed in 40 ABY. These three ships were painted dark blue and had egg-shaped hulls. The Millennium FalconTemplate:'s threat board gave each of these at least twice the firepower of an Imperial Star Destroyer. They were designed mainly for close combat with other capital ships. The Dreadnaughts were constructed in the Kiris shipyards, located in an asteroid field at the edge of the system. Two of the Dreadnaughts were destroyed in an attempt to turn the Hapes Consortium against the Galactic Alliance.

Of interest is the fact that Corellia's navy remained autonomous from the Imperial Navy throughout the time of the Galactic Empire, maintaining its own independence and individual naval traditions until it was dissolved following the original Centerpoint crisis. From this point until partway through the Yuuzhan Vong War, Corellia lacked any autonomous military forces, relying solely on the sector fleet provided by the New Republic.
