This is the first Jump to Lightspeed Trailer for the video game Star Wars Galaxies developed for the PC. The game was released on June 26, 2003. The Massively multiplayer online role-playing game (MMORPG) events are set between the events of Episode IV: A New Hope, and Episode V: The Empire Strikes Back.

This first expansion was released on October 27, 2004. Two new races were added: Sullustan and Ithorian. The expansion added space combat. Characters could choose one of three factions in the new Pilot sub-profession: Rebel, Imperial, or Freelance. The playable sectors include the space surrounding the ten planets of the game as well as Kessel and "Deep Space." Combat is real-time and twitch-oriented like a first-person shooter and can be played with a joystick at the player's option. A new Artisan profession, Shipwright, was also introduced. This profession created ships, shields, armor, weapons, etc for players. They also have the ability to take looted components from space and reverse engineer them into better components.
