    I'm new to the cantina and this is the first thread I've started. I would like to get opinions and debate over what you think Hosnian Prime's primary purpose in the galaxy is? Is it the sight of New Republic's headquarters? What do you think it's place in the galaxy means pertaining to the new saga? It's obviously a civilized world (look at quote below) and it leads me to believe it is of importance to the New Republic rather than the First Order as it's been rumored the bad guys are exiled to the unknown regions of the galaxy. What do you guys think about Hosnian Prime?

    Below is an excerpt from "The Face of Evil" which clearly states Hosnian Prime as a civilized world. I have also included a picture of the location for Hosnian Prime within the Empire Magazine's SW galaxy map.

    “Once she was back somewhere civilized, such as Hosnian Prime or Candovant, she could commission a new ID, complete with a thorough background that would ensure the thief the fresh start she needed.”

    Excerpt From: Landry Quinn Walker. “Star Wars Journey to the Force Awakens: The Face of Evil.” iBooks.

    Welcome :)

    The main theory is that Hosnian Prime is the capital of the New Republic. If that is true, I wonder what happened to Coruscant? Maybe the history of tyranny on Coruscant was too strong and the New Republic decided to start fresh. It is also possible that Coruscant is somehow in the hands of the First Order.
    I initially thought Hosnian Prime sounded like a First Order capital. I figured Snoke was there sending messages to Starkiller Base. That would be interesting given it is located almost directly across from Coruscant.

    By the way, this will probably be merged into the Planets of TFA thread.

    This has popped up in a few threads but I've said before, the whole Hosnian Prime thing confuses me as I have seen it written that it is where the New Republic was established, but in the New Canon novels, the establishment of the New Republic on Chandrilla and the new senate being set up there is shown. Also there was something else that bothered me about that star map, but I'd have to see the whole thing. I think it was something to do with the location of Ord Mantell in comparison with Anoat contradicting the Uprising game map.

    If Chandrila is the capital of the new republic then could Hosnian Prime be one of the main bases for the resistance that is if it is big enough to have more than one base

    That is something I haven't thought of yet! It could quite possibly be another base for The Resistance.

    And yes, the novel Aftermath confirmed that Chandrilla was set up to be the HQ for the New Republic but take in mind that this novel is set during the immediate months following ROTJ. So who knows, things could change and the Capitol could move to another location by te time TFA takes place. I'm not saying that Hosnian Prime is the Capitol, but I believe that the planet is of significance to both the New Republic and First Order. We will probably get at least a little insight about the planet nonetheless in the new movie, I can safely assume that from the reveal in multiple media platforms.

    It's probably a world similar to Naboo if we're going based off the fact that these new planets in TFA, at least, are basically same environments from The OT but still new "planets."

    I agree, I bet it's kind of like the Naboo of the ST. It may even be where Snoke resided, maybe he gives orders to Starkiller base from the planet and stays clear of the mess in the Outer Rim while Kylo & Hux do his dirty deeds. What if we don't actually see Snoke in person but via a hologram like we did of Palpatine in ESB? Plus, Snoke is said to supposedly be a part of the New Republic Senate (in a pretty far fetched rumor I heard) so IF that's even true or close to the truth, maybe it's the planet he represents. But still, if it's not the Capitol there has to be some kind of political involvement due to them stating the fact that it's "civilized" AND it's in the Core worlds. But that's just one of my many semi-tangible theories

    If anything, HUX would be political...I heard a wild rumor a looong time ago which was a ridiculous rumor, that KR is actually some sort of royalty that's gone stir-crazy with Vader after learning how powerful Vader became with his involvement with The Jedi and The (now) Old Republic, so he ends up becoming like Vader and collecting his old stuff, so he's Kylo aren't, as a KOR, which HE set up, specifically to live by "The Code of Vader," but he is ******* ********* as royalty to his home world in the new Senate...he has a dual personality as a result .

    Yeah that's seems to be a pretty out there rumor. I think Kylo wants to be Vader in every way possible though he probably never learned that Vader turned to the Light Side by the end of the Empire's grasp on the galaxy and killed Palpatine. He is probably too delusional to even change his allegiance if he found out the truth about Vader, calling it a hoax and faux propaganda. But I'm not sure what you meant by he does it for royalty, he is more than likely of Skywalker lineage, but not of any royalty as in Kings and Queens so that part of the rumor is completely false in my opinion. I think he has nothing to do with the senate and is only part of the First Order to complete personal goals that may be easier to achieve with an alliance in the First Order. Also, the KOR are more than likely not political either. They were probably separate entity that joined the First Order. I believe they were founded by the acolytes of the dark side (that may not be the actual name of the group, I can't quite remember) mentioned in the Aftermath novel. I think there's a pretty bold line between the politics and dark side force users in the new trilogy.

    Perhaps we will find out that Coruscant becomes a casualty of the superweapon?

    Unless something happens and they have to move elsewhere. Is Chandrilla the capital in anything other than Aftermath?

    I think if that were the case the galaxy would already be consumed in an all out full throttle civil war once again. Coruscant is probably the most inhabited world in the galaxy if not the most politically important as well (although the political importance may be diminished by the time TFA takes place giving way to the Capitol on Chandrilla or even Hosnian Prime) and if Coruscant is attacked, invaded or destroyed by the First Order then there would be no point of The Resistance because the whole reason that there is a resistance is to protect the galaxy of the FO threat since the New Republic seems to have turned a blind eye. I'm sure the NR would be at war already if a world like Coruscant was blown to smithereens. But maybe other planets have been destroyed prior to the film, I may be wrong altogether about Coruscant not being destroyed as well.

    And who is to say that anyone would even know that it was The First Order who destroys planets in the first place? I bet it would be hard to track down where the blast originates from if nobody is there to witness the destruction of a planet. And if it's not already public knowledge or the FO doesn't take claim for the destructions of planets, it may not be widely known until The Resistance has proof of the new super weapon in possession of the FO.

    It seems it's mentioned in Moving Target but not sure if it's mentioned as the capital there.

    Not to my knowledge. And like I said, Chandrilla was stated to be the new Capitol in a book taking place at the beginning of the New Republic when they were formulating ideas on how and where to run the government. Mon Mothma also drastically cut down the military by 90% which provides further implications that the New republic is setting itself up to be very vulnerable in the future. Imagine how things could change in thirty years after these provisions have settled.

    Maybe it's the planet we see being destroyed by Starkiller in the trailer? We know that Starkiller is used to destroy something and that an emissary of Leia (Korr Sella) is killed. MSW made it seem like a ship, but that wouldn't be a particularly cinematic display of Starkiller's power after we saw the Death Star destroy Alderaan.

    My guess: Hosnian Prime is the location of a secondary Resistance base that the First Order believes is the main one. It's destroyed by Starkiller, and we only see it fleetingly.

    Great prediction! That would be a very exciting element of the story if true, I like the idea that they get the main base wrong. Maybe they find out they were wrong and where the real main base is, then Leia sends Poe and the rest of the X-Wings to try and prevent the First Order from destroying the actual main base. We are so close to finding out, it's a great mystery to think about until then!
