Resolution: The Star Wars galaxy is, in fact, the Andromeda Galaxy.

I will be taking Pro, BOP is on me.

All Sources are based off fictional writing or film related to, linked to, or based around Star Wars and/or is relevant to answering the Resolution.

I accept your challenge. Please provide evidence and argumentation demonstrating that the Star Wars saga occurs within the Andromeda Galaxy.

Thank you for accepting.

To start, let's make connections...
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

ET: The Extra Terrestrial.

What does this have to do with Star Wars? You'll see later.



If you look at that image, you will notice at the bottom it says the following:
"He is afraid. He is totally alone. He is 3 million light years from home."(1)

1) http://www.imdb.com...

So ET's galaxy is 3 million light years away. Well that number is convenient, because there is only one galaxy (fitting the Star Wars Galaxy) that far away...

The Andromeda Galaxy.

The Andromeda Galaxy is 2,538,000 light years away(2). Obviously 3 million is a crude rounding. The Andromeda is the only Galaxy around, besides satellite galaxies, but Star Wars doesn't take place in a Satellite Galaxy.

Now, technically, ET could live in a Satellite Galaxy around the Andromeda or such, but we KNOW he lives in a large Spiral Galaxy that Star Wars takes place in. How? Here is what links ET to Star Wars...



That scene is from Star Wars I: The Phantom Menace.

They are called Grebleips, and their home world is Brodo Asogi. Are they really ET's species? Yes. George Lucas intended on putting ET's species into the movie for Steven Spielberg.

This is evidence alone, but there is also this image from ET.



What's so special about this? We are seeing it through ET's eyes. When ET see's a member of Yoda's species (as he doesn't know it's only a costume) he says "Home!"... This shows us that Yoda's species lives in the Andromeda Galaxy (as we know ET's species lives in the only Spiral galaxy around 3 million light years from Earth.)

Because ET now links back to Star Wars, it is a proper source.

====================================================================

Here, we conclude that ET's species comes from the Star Wars galaxy, as Yoda reminds ET of his home, and we see that ET's species is in the Galactic Senate.

So they share the same Galaxy, and since Star Wars takes place in a full Spiral Galaxy, and not a Satellite Galaxy, (or any tiny galaxy for that matter,) ET must than also exist in a full Spiral Galaxy... And wouldn't you know it, the only Spiral Galaxy within 3 million light years of Earth is the Andromeda Galaxy (conveniently, it is around 3 million light years away once rounded.)

=========================================================

So knowing now that ET's species lives in the Star Wars Galaxy, and is in the Galactic Senate, and that ET's home is '3 million light years away,' we can conclude that ET's, and therefore Star War's, galaxy is the Andromeda Galaxy.

Thank you.

The presented argument is sound, and I cannot refute it. There is sufficient evidence to conclude that the Star Wars Galaxy is very likely the Andromeda Galaxy.

Hello everyone. I believe I may be able to add further evidence that star wars is the Andromeda galaxy. If you allow me to use some of the Expanded Universe I can not only link them but I may infact be able to provide. A rough date as to when episode 4 took place by linking it to actual events on earth. Here's how.
On August 17th, 1885 Ludovic Gully first observed supernova SN1885A in the Andromeda galaxy. It was the first supernova observed outside our galaxy.
Now the link. In Dark Apprentice by Kevin J. Anderson, Kyp Durron used the prototype imperial weapon the sun crusher to cause the star Caridan to supernova.
If we assume. The two events are the same then we use the scientific estimate of 2,600,000 light years, subtract the 1885 A.D, add the years between episode 4 and said book and add the additional days between a star wars year and an earth year to the observed date I find the battle of Gavin in episode 4 to have been September 16th 2,598,126 B.C. That puts Snaking Skywalker becoming Darth Vader on about November 15th, 2,598,146 B.C.
I know this evidence is a bit abstract but I am using what I understand is cannon and an actual event. Its my thoery anyway.

It is. As the sources say, it has to link to Star Wars in some way.

Unless you plan to use books yourself, I suggest limiting the scope of sources... Actually I suggest doing such anyway, at least make sure it's cannon stock.
