The "Star Wars" Megaverse



13.8 billion years ago, the Big Bang occurred. From the Big Bang, the familiar universe came into existence. This universe, however, was not a monolithic cosmos; it consisted of innumerable timelines, all co-existing parallel to each other. Neither was this universe the sole universe; existing alongside it on alternate vibrational planes were more universes, each with their own divergent timelines. This collection of interrelated timelines and universes is the megaverse.

While all timelines within a universe share the exact same physical laws and constants, the universes themselves differ to varying extent. All universes and timelines resonate with the Force, allowing life to flourish within them. History is mutable in most, if not all, universes; what has been and what will be in any given timeline is not necessarily fixed and can be altered.

Physical travel between timelines within a universe is possible, though exceedingly difficult and dangerous. The same is not true for travel between the universes, which is believed impossible.

* * *



While not a proper multiverse or universe in its own right, hyperspace surrounds, permeates, and connects all points in the megaverse.

While primarily utilized as a means of FTL travel and communication within the individual universes of Multiverse-0, under certain conditions it can be used as a means to travel through time or to other universes both in and beyond the multiverse.

* * *

MULTIVERSE-2

* * *



The universe inhabited by the powerful psionic Cody Sunn-Childe and his followers.

Those who live inside this universe seemingly do not age, indicating that either time/entropy operates differently in this universe or there is some unknown rejuvenative agent present which prevents cellular degeneration.

* * *

MULTIVERSE-3

* * *



The home universe of the Charon race.

This universe consists of a stormy grayness filled with colourful nebulae and black stars.

* * *

MULTIVERSE-4

* * *


The home universe of the alien Waru.

This universe is bound together by the mystical energy field known as the Anti-Force (an equal but opposite equivalent of the Force).

EXTRA-MEGAVERSAL UNIVERSES

The megaverse isn't the whole of physical existence. As such, other megaverses, multiverses, and universes exist beyond it. For the sake of completeness, some of those worlds which have been visited by the denizens of the familiar multiverse are listed below.

The universe of the story told within "Heggs' Tale".

The laws of physics in this universe make so little sense that killing an unborn creature in the present will cause its adult form to cease to exist in the past.
