this former Mandalorian trooper established himself as a crimelord on the planet Qiilura, during the years leading up to the Clone Wars. It was said that Hokan was so unpleasantly violent that he was asked to leave the Death Squad for enjoying his work too much. He controlled the farmers of Qiilura with an iron fist, and prided himself on his ability to defend his organization. When he was approached by the Confederacy of Independent Systems, Hokan found himself unable to refuse their offer. He quickly established a research facility for Ovolot Qail Uthan, and set out to make sure that the facility was properly defended. However, he received little in the way of funding from Lik Ankkit, the Neimoidian representative of the Separatists on Qiilura, and was forced to create a police force from criminals and other conscripts. Like many Mandalorians, Hokan despised the Jedi Knights, and he considered them "play warriors" because they didn't use heavy weaponry or their fists. Thus, when Kast Fulier was captured and killed on Qiilura, shortly after the Battle of Geonosis, Hokan was more than happy to take his lightsaber and claim it as his own. When Ankkit refused to provide proper troops, Hokan gave himself a "field promotion" to the rank of Major, and claimed that he was part of the Separatist army. He then garrisoned Ankkit's villa, as part of a plan to hide Uthan's facility from the clone commandos of Omega Squad. When Omega Squad managed to infiltrate the facility and capture Uthan, Hokan was forced to evacuate. To ensure his survival, he took Uthan's research team hostage, and planned to escape on speeders with them. However, during the flight to reach the speeders, the hostages were killed in the firefight. Hokan and his chief Lieutenant, Hurati, managed to escape, and set out to retrieve Uthan. They were unable to do so, and found themselves the objects of an intense manhunt, led by Omega Squad. Ultimately, the commandos tricked Hokan into the open when one of them feigned injury. It was then that Etain Tur-Mukan stole up behind him and killed Hokan with a single cut from her lightsaber.

this yellow-skinned Trandoshan was part of Krayn's pirate crew during the last decades of the Old Republic, joining the pirates shortly after the Battle of Naboo. When the pirates captured a group of Rutien Twi'lek septuplets, Hokker spoke openly of taking them for himself and selling them for his own profit. This disloyalty earned him a break in Krayn's brig, after Siri Tachi -posing as the pirate Zora - turned him in.

Holiest of Holies
this was the term used by the Ugors to describe the fragment of the Death Star which was located at the heart of the Paradise System. The Holiest of Holies was the piece of scrap which contained the prototype gravity well projector which had been stored aboard the first Death Star, and which had been flung into the reaches of space when the space station was destroyed during the Battle of Yavin. The gravity well projector suddenly reactivated itself, drawing toward itself a huge mass of orbital debris and rock. This immense, artificial asteroid field formed the heart of the Paradise System.

the huge, central biosphere located in Centerpoint Station, it was a beautiful area of gardens, parks, and living spaces. It was lit by the Glowpoint, and provided nearly all the foodstuffs needed to keep the inhabitants fed. However, when the station began generating strange pulses timed with the destruction of stars listed on the Starbuster plot, the Glowpoint incinerated everything in Hollowtown until the oxygen ran out. When Luke Skywalker and Lando Calrissian first see it, the toxic residues of the destruction make Hollowtown unlivable. Lando later finds that Hollowtown and the Glowpoint were components of the huge power supply needed to keep the hyperspatial tractor beam operational.

this Devaronian was Vilmarh Grahrk's cousin. The two had no lack of disrespect for each other, and both took every opportunity to insult the other. However, when it came to credits, they often shared information in order to ensure that both profited. One of their first attempts to make a fast credit came when Villie was contracted to distract the Jedi Knights, in order for Darth Sidious to gain access to the Jedi Temple on Coruscant, several months before the Battle of Naboo. Villie made a deal with the Yinchorri, which involved Holmar's son, Olmar, being married off to five Yinchorri females in order for Villie to become a member of the Yinchorri clans. Another such collaboration came after Villie rescued Quinlan Vos from Nar Shaddaa. Holmar reported that a huge bounty had been placed on Quinlan's head, and the pair decided to work together to turn the Jedi Knight in for the bounty. After they arranged for Quinlan to be captured, Villie shot and killed Holmar in order to claim the entire bounty for himself.

this device allows the user to manipulate a pre-recorded holo-transmission and create a false transmission. The generator first makes a holographic image of the desired subject, then runs it through a bit manipulation program to generate subsequent images. The complete set of images forms a smooth, seemingly real transmission.
this was a slim, crystalline board which was used to store vast amounts of information. Developed during the early millennia of the Old Republic, holohbooks were incredibly durable. The Jedi Archives, located on Coruscant during the last decades of the Old Republic, contained literally millions of holobooks, some of which dated back to the origins of the Republic. When properly stored and maintained, holobooks gave off a soft, blue glow. Like the Jedi Holocrons, holobooks provided interactive interfaces to their knowledge, allowing a reader to delve as deeply into subject matter as they desired.

this generic term was used to describe any full-duplex, three-dimensional communication.
this form of recording device captured full-form, three-dimensional images as well as sound for later playback.
known originally as a holographic chronicle, this was a recording device used by the ancient Jedi Knights to hold the multitude of teachings and lore needed to maintain the Jedi Knights. Each of these devices provides a visual and vocal way to view the enclosed information. The holocron was essentially a dense crystal, with intricate lattices and vertices which were capable of storing huge amounts of information. Most were small enough to fit in the palm of a human being. Each holocron has a gatekeeper assigned to dispense the information. The gatekeeper contains the cognitive network functions of a Jedi Master, and acts as a search, recovery, and storage allocation program. The devices are shaped like small, translucent cubes, and can be activated by a person controlling The Force. The Holocron can sense the user's ability with the Force, and can block out areas of knowledge that are beyond the user's ability. Despite the name, these holocrons were not limited to the Jedi Knights. Several holocrons containing Sith lore have been discovered as well. For some unknown reason, Sith Holocrons were pyramidal in shape, while Jedi Holocrons were cubic. The technology for constructing a Holocron and storing the personalities and knowledge within one was lost many thousands of years before the Battle of Yavin.

Hologram Fun World
an amusement park that is located in a transparent dome that floats in a blue helium cloud in the Zabian System, Hologram Fun World boasts that it can make any visitor's dreams come true. The World itself isn't really a world, but a self-contained planetoid that is about 40 kilometers in diameter. It was filled with holographic entertainment of all kinds, from realistic excursions to remote worlds, to incredible simulations of huge creatures. Borborygmus Gog managed to obtain permission from Danna Fajji to build his Nightmare Machine there, shortly after the Battle of Yavin. Lando Calrissian later purchased controlling interest and ran the theme park, after losing Cloud City to Zorba the Hutt in a rigged sabacc match.
Hologram Projection Pod
developed by SoroSuub, this circular device allowed the user to send a full-body, holographic communication to another being. It required that the receiving party have a holographic display unit. Measuring about two meters in diameter, the Hologram Projection Pod allowed for both transmission and reception of HoloNet signals, enabling virtually real-time communications across the galaxy.

once the main vehicle for spreading news instantaneously thoroughout the galaxy, the Holonet used subspace relays to transmit three-dimensional images to various holonet receivers. This media distribution system allowed the Old Republic to have instant access to any inhabited location in the galaxy. It was created from hundreds of thousands of non-mass transceivers connected through an incredible matrix of coordinated SimuTunnels. Each endpoint was equippde with a huge computer system that decoded and sorted the transmitted information. Initially, the HoloNet was incredibly expensive to maintain and operate. Thus, its use was usually restricted to purely governmental transmissions. Over the centuries of its existence, however, the HoloNet became an almost indispensible technology, linking the planets of the Old Republic together with virtually instantaneous communiction. During the Clone Wars, the Confederacy of Independent Systems was forced to create its own version of the HoloNet, in order to maintain communication during the fighting. After Palpatine assumed control of the galaxy, he limited the HoloNet to specific Imperial uses, in order to control the flow of information through the galaxy. After the Battle of Endor, the New Republic began to re-establish civilian use of the HoloNet, restoring the primary communication vehicle required for a galactic government. The completion of the new HoloNet was cut short by the Yuuzhan Vong invasion of the galaxy, as large parts of the galaxy were attacked and cut off. After the Second Battle of Coruscant, when the survivors of the Senate fled to Calamari, much of the HoloNet equipment which had been repaired or replaced was simply abandoned. Without contact with the Republic, as provided by the HoloNet, many small warlords chose to leave the system alone, protecting their small piece of the galaxy. Cal Omas, as the newly-elected Chief of State of the Galactic Federation of Free Alliances, decided to once again re-establish the HoloNet, to help draw the galaxy together in an effort to fend off the alien invaders. The usefulness of the repaired HoloNet was cut short by the development of the magubat kan, a Yuuzhan Vong bioform which attacked HoloNet relay stations and destroyed them.

any three-dimensional billboard.
a three-dimensional form of artwork.
the derogatory term used to describe reporters who work for tabloids and sensationalistic news agencies.
this was a device which mimicked a pre-recorded image or appearance, allowing a being to appear to be someone - or something - else. Holoshrouds found use on the battled field to assist a being who was injured in escaping to a place of safety. The injured being could move slightly from their downed position, getting a short distance away under the protection of the shroud. When the attacker came to determine his victim's status, the victim could pounce on his attacker and surprise him. The technology was developed and refined during the New Republic, until the holoshroud could be used to cloak the true appearance of an individual during normal activity. Note that this level of technology was indicated as being available at the end of the Clone Wars in Boba Fett: A New Threat.
