Codex/Galactic History 05: Rise of the Infinite Empire
|“||The "Infinite Empire" was the name the Rakata people gave their magnificient but ultimately flawed civiliation-one that eventually encompassed more than five hudred known worlds. Their rise wss fueled by their impressive technology, powered by what would later be called the Force. Using it, the Rakata developed the first known hyperdrive.
Slowly, the Rakata became corrupted by their power. They began enslaving entire species, including the peoples of Coruscant. The Rakata also attacked Korriban, ruled by the great King Adas. Although their attack failed to enslave the pureblood Sith species, King Adas was killed. Without his leadership, Korriban was plunged into civil war.
The Rakata’s slaves were put to work building monuments to the Infinite Empire’s glory. Among the Infinite Empire’s achievements was the Star Forge, a space station capable of producing endless droids and starships. However, the Star Forge was fueled by the dark side of the Force. Using it only hastened the Rakata’s fall.
