23. "RE: Fulcrum of Fate impressions"
In response to message #5
Depending on exactly which sources you go on, Star Wars didn't used to encompass the entire galaxy, either, interestingly enough.
(The older West End Games RPG very clearly says Known Space was only a small part of the galaxy, although its claim to authority is very much open to debate; depending on exactly how rare "worlds owned by the Empire" are, the original trilogy might not support the notion either.)
