I still canít get over how much the galaxy shrank. Thought it was a typo but guess not.

Because based on the passages galan posted, after he created the Empire it seems like Sidious basically devoted his entire life to unlocking ancient secrets of the Sith and studying sith arcana. His enormous growth makes sense if he was dedicating every waking moment to becoming more powerful.

We saw how powerful Rey (who was Sidiou's direct offspring and had his same potential) became just by studying some random texts with Leia for 1 year. Sidious himself had basically been doing the same thing on a much greater level for several decades.
This is a fair point.

Yeah, I thought it might be a typo as well when the number first popped up... But 3.2 million it is.

I mean, we'll still barely even see a micro-fraction of those worlds explored in future works, and I don't necessarily mind a more consolidated galaxy -- but it's still an odd reduction from Legends(3.2 billion compared to 3.2 million.)

It's also not taking into account all the habitable worlds in the Unknown Regions, but still...

The book says the Sith were defeated before they could conquer the galaxy. How does that fit with Sidious saying "Once more the Sith will rule the galaxy" in ROTS? I always assumed they did rule the galaxy at some point.

Sounds like the Sith basically did control most of the galaxy but the Republic managed to sneak in a win.

Kind of like how the Rebellion managed to topple the Empire.

Where does it say in Legends there were 3.2 billion inhabited worlds? Ik the Star Wars RPG says the Empire rules billions of worlds and the Shadows of the Empire sourcebook says the Empire also spans billions of stars. Never seen anything that specific, however.

Doesn't the Complete Locations book say there is hundreds of millions of inhabited worlds with countless millions more uninhabited worlds?

It's from the Essential Atlas.

Do the math and you wind up with about 7.1 billion habitable stars in the known galaxy-that's about 3.2 billion habitable star systems.

So yeah, the New Galaxy is smaller compared to the old one as far as habitability anyway.
