It sounds like that hyperlane is the main one used for travel between the Core Worlds and the Rim Worlds. With it being effectively shut down due to debris, that means the Core and Rim Worlds are effectively isolated from each other.
Good point.

Perhaps that is the cause for concern, as the Outer Rim being majorly cut-off from the Core worlds would allow lawlessness and whatnot(in the form of the Nihil) to start running rampant, without the fear of significant Republic/Jedi intervention.

Still not sure why they couldn't use a different hyperlane to access the Outer Rim, but hopefully that will be explained as well... Maybe hyperlanes weren't as easy to come by back then. /shrug

From what I recall, hyperlane mapping is incredibly dangerous, and the farther from the Core Worlds you get, the less stable hyperlanes are. Don't remember if that's Legends or Canon info, though, but it's likely why the Outer Rim doesn't have as thoroughly mapped hyperlanes. Either way, I'm looking forward to the full novel.
