Star Was has revealed its in-universe calendar system...
1 / 8
Revealed by Pablo Hidalgo in his in-universe reference book, Scum & Villainy.
2 / 8
It seems the galaxy uses a calendar called "CRC,"
3 / 8
Which is cleverly oriented around the Battle of Yavin and the release of the first Star Wars film.
4 / 8
Star Wars came out in 1977, so Hidalgo arbitrarily adds six millennia to date that as 7977.
5 / 8
Everything else orients around that date - so, for example, Star Wars 9 is in 8012.
6 / 8
Does the calendar date from the Republic's founding, or some other event?
