The Aquilae Corridor is a sector of 84 star systems, linking several trade routes, including the Corellian Trade Route,the Xyquine Trade Route, and the Celanon Spur from the Mid Rim to the Outer Rim Territories.
Originally founded as a border outpost during the Expansion Period of the Old Republic, the sector began a period of rapid expansion, first during the Clone Wars and then during the exploration and colonization of the Outer Rim Territories. Despite the rise of The Empire, the worlds of the Aquilae Corridor are still mostly independent or quasi-independent. Imperial power is currently confined to the Umbriel system.
Economically, the sector’s economy is governed by both the slave trade based out of Aquilae, and transiting ships using the corridor as a way station. In recent decades, competition has come from the nearby trade center of Celanon.
