this Imperial Captain was known to be extremely patient. He served as the commander of the Empire Forever, taking Advisor Coh Veshiv on several missions. Annance had only been with Veshiv for three months before his patience began to run out. Shortly afterward, Veshiv was captured by the crew of the Far Orbit. Annance would have normally been suspicious of Captain Vedij's orders to take over for him on Veshiv's fact-finding mission in the Ringali Shell, but had become so weary of Veshiv's presence that he considered the request a stroke of luck and gladly turned Veshiv over. (FOP)

this was a noted Clawdite. (GMR10)

this was one of the three Acclamator-class troopships that was dispatched by the Old Republic to help defend the planet Duro, during the height of the Clone Wars. The ship and its companions were all destroyed in battle, as General Grievous showed that he was a master tactician. (SWI75)

this was the name of the process by which the energy-charged seeds of the boras trees of Zonama Sekot were shaped by mature boras trees into new forms of boras. The creation of a Sekotan starship from seed-partners mimicked this process, as the forged seed-partners became seed-disks, which were then molded to airframes and combined with technology to form starships. (RP)

this was the alias used by Bollux, when the droid posed as a gladiator droid when Han Solo infiltrated the Stars' End prison facility, several years before the Battle of Yavin. (HSE)

this Imperial-class Star Destroyer was part of Governor Newen Streeg's fleet, which patrolled the Sisar Run during the last years of the New Order. The Annihilator skimmed the border of Hutt space during its regular patrols, and it nearly captured Drek Drednar and his pirate gang before they disappeared into the Quintar Nebula. (SSR, SWJ5)

this was the common name of BlasTech's DT-57 blaster. (VD3)

this was the name, used by the natives of the planet Junction 5, to describe the supposed superweapon that had been developed by their neighbors on the moon Delaluna. Despite the incredible fear of the weapon maintained by the natives of Junction 5, the leaders of the government on Delaluna denied its very existence. In reality, there was no Annihilator weapon. Cilia Dil and her band of rebels managed to expose the truth in a daring raid on Delaluna's Minstry of Offense and Defense, in which they found the Annihilator plans in a files marked "Misinformation." The existence of the Annihilator was a ruse used by the Guardians to keep themselves in power. It was Lorian Nod himself who came up with the idea of the Annihilator, as part of his plans to take control of Junction 5 for himself. (LOJ)

this woman served as a flight attendant on the Tinta Palette when it was attacked by Invid pirates. (IJ)

Annloc Yerj
this being was a noted entertainer during the last years of the Old Republic. When the Clone Wars broke out, Annloc joined Jasod Revoc's Galactic Revue and traveled across the galaxy to entertain the troops of the Grand Army of the Republic. (MJH)

this tribe of castaways eked out an existence on the planet Iego, on a mesa overlooking the Scatter. (GORW)

Annon, Blix
this plump man was a Senator to the Old Republic some 55 years before the Clone Wars. Known for his expensive and opulent tastes, Senator Annon was nevertheless very generous in his support to the Jedi Order, both financially and practically. Thus, he came to believe that he could call on the Order whenever he needed help, as repayment for his generosity. During a mission he undertook at the time, Senator Annon was accompanied by Jedi Master Dooku and his Padawan, Qui-Gon Jinn. Their ship was apprehended by a pirate, who had used the disabled ship of Senator Galim Eddawan as bait. In the ensuing battle, the pirate - who revealed himself to be Lorian Nod - captured Senator Annon and fled into space. Unfortunately for Senator Annon, the strain of being attacked and kidnapped was too much for his aging body. He died of a heart attack shortly after his capture, before Nod could ransom him back to his constituents. (LOJ)

this was the original homeworld of the Annoo-dat Prime race. Some 322 years before the Battle of Yavin, the planet's natural resources had been exhausted, and the Annoo-dat Prime were forced to abandon their homeworld and seek out a new place to live. They eventually conquered the Ret and took control of the planet Gelefil, which was later renamed to Annoo, in honor of the original homeworld of the Annoo-dat Prime. (DM111)

this agricultural planet was the homeworld of the Ret, a race of smooth-skinned, cold-blooded humanoids. Before the planet was conquered by the Annoo-dat, however, the planet was known as Gelefil. When the Annoo-dat defeated the Ret some 322 years before the Battle of Yavin, the two races eventually became a single society. After a century or so of peace, the planet was renamed to Annoo, in honor of its conquerors. The planet was thrown into turmoil a few years before the onset of the Clone Wars. General Ashaar Khorda led a military coup to overthrow the government, but was thwarted by the forces of the Old Republic. General Khorda fled into hiding, and the Republic installed its own government on Annoo. Annoo (DCAR, ZW, OWS, DM111)

although this race of reptiloids was considered native to the planet Gelefil, they were originally native to a planet known as Annoo. These hulking humanoids had drowsy eyes, flat noses, and spots on their faces. Perhaps the most distinctive feature of the Annoo-dat physiology was the fact that each individual had four eyes, allowing them to see into a variety of spectra and with incredible clarity. The crown of the Annoo-dat head was ringed with short horns, and their chins ended in a bony point. A thick tail helped to counterbalance their long bodies, and the legs of an Annoo-dat had two knee joints. The spots on their face changed color with their emotional state, getting brighter as an individual became angrier. About 322 years before the Battle of Yavin, the Annoo-dat were forced to abandon their dying homeworld of Annoo. They eventually discovered to the planet Gelefil, and defeated the Ret to take control of the planet. Over the following decades, the two races merged into a single society, with both referring to themselves as the Annoo-dat. They renamed the planet Annoo, in honor of the original homeworld of the Annoo-dat. In order to avoid confusion, xenobiologists referred to the Annoo-dat as the Annoo-dat Prime, while the Ret came to called Anno-dat Blue. (DCAR, ZW, OWS, DM111)

Annoo-dat Blue
this was the official name given to the Ret race, after they were conquered by the Annoo-dat. Xenobiologists were forced to come up with an official name after the two races merged into a single civilization, following the conquering of Gelefil, when both races simply called themselves the Annoo-dat. (DM111)

Annoo-dat Prime
this was the official name given to the Annoo-dat race, after they conquered the Ret and took control of the planet Gelefil. Xenobiologists were forced to come up with an official name after the two races merged into a single civilization, following the conquering of Gelefil, when both races simply called themselves the Annoo-dat. (DM111)

this annual series of podraces was held at the Togatto Speedway, on the planet Esseles, during the last decades of the Old Republic. (CCW)

Annual Picnic and Grand Reunion
this was one of the many gatherings that were regularly held for the Corporate Sector Authority's Security Officers. (HSE)

Annual SecBowl
this was the annual grav-ball tournament that was held on the planet Nubia during the last decades of the Old Republic. One hundred twenty-eight teams from the surrounding sector participated each year, hoping to become the sector champion. (CCW)

the primary planet in the Anoat System of the Anoat Sector, Anoat was at one time among the inhabited planets located along the Ison Corridor. However, it was abandoned sometime before the Galactic Civil War after toxic waste rendered the ecosystem unable to sustain life. (ESB, JS, CHRN, WOA33)

Anoat City
this was primary city on the planet Anoat, although it was abandoned many years before the Galactic Civil War. What remained behind was a collection of duracrete and durasteel rubble that was covered with toxic sludge. Moff Rebus hid there, in an attempt to avoid Kyle Katarn, just prior to the Battle of Yavin. (DF, WOA33)

Anoat Malted
this is a rich, sweet beverage has a deep, smoky flavor. (SH)

Anoat Sector
this was one of the three sectors of the galaxy that made up the Greater Javin area of the Outer Rim Territories. The original boundaries of the Anoat Sector included the area now known as the Yarith Sector, encompassing the entire area of space containing the Kiax and Ivax Nebulas. Because much of the sector was mapped by Ecclessis Figg himself, he petitioned the Old Republic to name the sector 'Ecclessis'. However, investigation of public records revealed an earlier survey team had already given it the name 'Anoat'. Generations later, the Old Republic split the burgeoning Anoat Sector into two parts, splitting the sector so that each part contained one of the two parts of the Twin Nebulae. The Anoat Sector contained those worlds surrounding the Ivax Nebula, while the other sector would include the planets near the Kiax Nebula. The heirs of Ecclessis and Yarith Figg argued that the Republic was trying to artificially limit their expansion in the region and curb their economic control of the Anoat Sector, but their appeals fell short of swaying the politicians. They managed to win a small victory, however, when the Kiax Nebula sector was named Yarith Sector, after Yarith Figg. However, the border between the Anoat and Yarith Sectors meandered in and out, cutting off certain planets from existing political allegiances to minimize local power. (WOA33)

Anoat System
this star system contained the planets Anoat, Gentes, and Deyer. It was here that the Imperial fleet chased the Millennium Falcon after it escaped from the Hoth asteroid field, in the wake of the Battle of Hoth. During the time of the New Republic, the system is relatively deserted. It is located near the Hoth System. Note that Rebellion places the Anoat System in the Churba Sector, while the Dark Side Sourcebook places it in the Anoat Sector. (ESB, JS, GG2, DSSB, WOA33)

this planet was located near Ord Mantell, in the Mid Rim. In addition to a colony of Zabraks, there were two main groups of native humans: those that lived and worked in the mountain mines, and those that lived and worked in the lowland plains. The miners depended heavily on trade in order to survive, and valued their relationship with the Empire. The farmers, however, were self-sufficient, and resented the controls imposed by Imperial law. At the height of the Galactic Civil War, the farmers wanted to join the Alliance, but the miners feared the loss of their trade. An intense civil war broke out, and lasted for nearly 25 years before Han Solo met with the leaders of both groups. Han was acting as the Grand Marshall of the 93rd Blockade Runners Derby on Ord Mantell. (ROM, WOTC)

this man was the younger brother of Prince Denid, of the planet Velmor. When the Empire subjugated Velmor and slew their parents, the boys were split up. Denid was taken by Jedidiah into hiding, while Anod was groomed by the Imperials to become the next King, albeit an Imperial one. Anod was killed by Captain Traal, his Imperial attache', when he tried to kill Denid at the behest of Zelor. Traal discovered that Loren and Korl Marcus were actually Leia Organa and Luke Skywalker in disguise, and wanted them alive. She shot Anod in the ensuing confusion. (LTA2, MC49)

Anointed People
this was the name used by a race of reptilian humanoids which had reached a feudal level of society by the era of the New Order. They were native to the planet Abonshee, which they called Masterhome, and had a feudal society which split their people into two classes: the Godlings, who were the rulers and priests of the planet; and the Unwashed, which were the serfs and laborers. All of the Anointed People were ruled a supreme leader known as the Godking. Despite their fearsome appearance and disparate societies, there were very few wars in their history. After Imperial Lord Dixton tried to take control of the Godking, shortly after the Battle of Yavin, the Godking aligned the Anointed People with the Alliance. The Godlings assisted a group of Alliance agents in capturing Dixton and ensuring the Anointed Peoples' freedom. (SWCP, MB, AE)

a humanoid alien race native to the Yablari System, the Anomid are born without vocal cords. This requires that the immature Anomid wear complex masks which synthesize the sounds necessary for communication with others. These masks are very large, covering all but the Anomid's eyes and forehead. They dress in long, hooded robes made from pure dendrite. Most Anomids have pale, translucent skin and wide eyes, and their ears are large and leaf-like in shape. Anomids have six toes on each foot. Their technology is fairly sophisticated, and the Anomid have become very wealthy selling it in the galaxy. A peaceful race, they supported the Old Republic for 15,000 years before the onset of the New Order. Their own political system was divided in its support during the Galactic Civil War, but they sided with the Empire in an effort to meet their homeworlds' needs. (RM, GG12, RD)

this was the name given to the native language of the Anomid race, which consisted of an intricate collection of hand and body signals. Because Anomids had six fingers on each hand, this form of sign language was "unpronounceable" by most other races. There was no written element to the Anomid language. (UANT)

this creature was a nocturnal, lupine predator native to the near deserts of Tatooine. They were opportunistic feeders that hunted in packs, killing small prey or scavenging off larger kills by other predators as the environment demanded. Each pack was led by a dominant pair. The average anooba weighed more than thirty-five kilograms, and had large ears to help regulate body heat. Their snouts ended in a heavy beak, and their strong jaws allowed them to bite through bone and gristle. Most anoobas were continually hungry, and would often feed until gorged and unable to move. Young anoobas were cared for by the pack for just a year, after which the largest are driven off to fend for themselves. (WSW, WOTC)

a common name given to Twi'lek males, this name meant "commander" or "warrior chief". (GCG)

Anoon Bondara
this Twi'lek Jedi Master was a contemporary of Qui-Gon Jinn, and was a master of the teras kasi martial arts. Master Bondara was also the teacher of Darsha Assant. When Darsha was ordered by the Jedi Council to retrieve Oolth the Fondorian from the Crimson Corridor of Coruscant, Master Bondara questioned the Council's objectives in sending the padawan into such dangerous territory. However, he was forced to let her go. When she returned many hours later, without Oolth and speaking of the Fondorian's death, Master Bondara tried to calm her down and asked her to retrace her steps, so that they could determine it Oolth had survived. Unfortunately, they found no trace of Oolth's body, and ended up in the crossfire of Darth Maul's attempt to execute Lorn Pavan. Hoping to buy Darsha and Lorn time to escape, Master Bondara attacked the Sith lord during a speeder chase. Hoping to catch Maul by surprise, Bondara leaped onto his speeder and attempted to disarm Maul. When that failed, Bondara realized that he had only one option. Bondara used his lightsaber to ignited the power cells of Maul's speeder, causing an explosion which took his life but, unfortunately, not Maul's. (DMSH, COD)

Anorik, Dek
this grizzled old smuggler was captured by Imperial forces on Gacerian. In exchange for his freedom, he agreed to lure unsuspecting, greedy salvagers to the Gacerian System, where they could be captured by the Empire and put to work as slaves in the Gacerian gem mines. (PG2)

planet on which Han Solo and Leia Organa-Solo "hide" their children during the early years of the New Republic. It is really three fragments on an ancient planet which was destroyed eons ago, and is held together by gravity, orbiting a common center of mass. Two fragments orbit in close proximity, and are virtually uninhabitable. The third fragment is separated from the other two, and is capable of supporting life. Thus, many system cartographers consider Anoth to be the third planet in the Anoth System. The three planetary fragments orbit a small, white dwarf sun. The Anoth fragment has a day which lasts fourteen standard hours, and orbits its sun every 286 local days. Winter took care of the children there, and worked with Admiral Ackbar and Luke Skywalker to prepare defenses. The fortress was breached by Ambassador Furgan's troops, who used MT-ATs to break down the barriers and gain entrance. The base was abandoned for some years after Furgan's attack was thwarted, to see whether knowledge of the planet became widespread. When it didn't Han and Leia began to refurbish the base as a private, well-defended retreat. (JS, COTF, JASB, TNR)

Another Chance
this legendary armory ship was a massive transport ship used to carry all of Alderaan's weapons off-planet. A converted Alderaanian War Frigate, it was programmed to continually jump through hyperspace until called home by Alderaan's council of elders. It was accompanied during this time by three Alderaanian warships, which were slave-circuited together. The Another Chance was manned by a collection of droid workers, programmed to maintain the ship and protect it against unauthorized entry. Many of the stories of ghost ships near the Alderaan system report seeing this ship. The Another Chance was actually recovered by Alliance sympathizers shortly before the Alliance's defeats at Derra IV and Hoth, when Orinn Tathis returned to the Graveyard of Alderaan in an effort to locate the remote calling device. He hoped to turn the weapons carried within the ship over to the Alliance, in an effort to help them fight back against the Empire. (GA, BTS, BW)

this planet is located in the Outer Rim Territories. It was the site of an Alliance base during the Galactic Civil War. (GG9)

this race of beings was noted for its wide range of knowledge and learning. (VD2)

a planet. (POC)

this man, a native of the planet Baffop, was in charge of prepping Luke Skywalker's X-Wing prior to the Battle of Yavin. During the ensuing years, Anselm moved up the Alliance's ranks as a technical expert. Nine years after Yavin, Anselm served as the lead technical member of the crew sent by Leia Organa Solo to recover the Katana Fleet. (DFR, DFRSB)

this was one of the two races which evolved on the planet Glee Anselm. The Anselmi were adapted to live on the land, unlike their amphibious neighbors, the Nautolan. Because of this, the Anselmi were aggressive when it came to acquiring new territory and protecting their land holdings. Unfortunately, the Nautolans were physically stronger, and often repelled any Anselmi attempts to acquire more land. In general, though, the two races existed peacefully on the planet. (WOTC)

this was the native language of the Anselmi race. (WOTC)

this holo-video character was developed on Adarlon. Ansil was a refugee who became the finest sansil player in the galaxy. (GG6)

a planet. (RPG)

this planet was located near Vortex and Bilbringi, and was orbited by two moons. The homeworld of the Ansionian people, Ansion was a world covered with sweeping grasslands and plains. This landscape was often swept by high winds, as there were few mountains to break up the wind. As a result, most species found on the planet were either avians which rode the winds or sure-footed enough to remain on the ground. However, there were stands of trees and sharp, volcanic vents dotting the landscape, breaking the seeming monotony of the plains. Some ten years after the Battle of Naboo, Ansion was one of the first planets to vote to secede from the Old Republic, an event which held great political implications. Unknown to many, Count Dooku and the leaders of the growing secession movement had planned to use Ansion as the first of several planets to actually secede. Hoping that a plethora of planetary alliances would be enforced, Dooku believed that many more planets would follow Ansion and secede, thereby destroying the already fractured Republic. However, the Jedi Knights were dispatched to ensure that Ansion remained part of the Republic. Eventually, an accord between the peoples of the plains and the city dwellers was made to remain with the Republic, forestalling a great turmoil in the Republic. Decades later, Ansion was overrun by the Yuuzhan Vong as they made their way toward Coruscant some twenty-seven years after the Battle of Yavin. (SBS, APS)

this humanoid race was native to the planet Ansion. There were two main races of Ansionians native to the planet, differentiated mainly by physical stature. The dominant race stood just shorter than standard Human stock, while the other race - known as the Gwurran - was much smaller. Wiry and lean, Ansionians were distinguished by their bulging eyes and single nostril, as well as the stripe of fur which sprouted atop their heads and ran down their spine. This fur was a source of pride for individual Ansionians, and each individual had a unique coloration patterns to reveal their individuality. The skin of an Ansionian was yellow in color, and their mouths were filled with fine, sharp teeth. Each hand and foot ended with three digits, but all their fingers and toes were opposable. Their physiology differed greatly from that of a human, and it was known that the average Ansionian had more than one heart. Because of the convex, protruding formation of their eyes, Ansionians could not blink or squint. As a people, Ansionians used only a single name to identify each other. When an individual wanted to display pleasure or approval, an Ansionian would pop their knuckles in rapid succession. (APS)

Ansionian Unity
this was another name for the Unity of Community. (APS)

this hide of this creature was cured and used to make durable boots and jackets. (COG)

this noble was known as one of the Old Republic's richest men. (SWJ6)

this area of the galaxy is the original home of the Houk race. (GG12)

this was the Imperial officer who served as the Commander of the Star Destroyer Right to Rule during the height of the Yuuzhan Vong invasion of the galaxy. (FH3)

this Shyriiwook word was used as the suffix to many Wookiee names. It translated into Basic as "judge" or "leader". It could be attached to a prefix by itself, or combined with other suffixes to form a complete Wookiee name. (GMR10, GCG)

Antab, Rixes
this small-time thief worked on the planet Tatooine, during the years following the Battle of Naboo. He once stole a shipment of chubas that was destined for Jabba the Hutt, which earned him a bounty on his head. Jango Fett later claimed this bounty, when he was on Tatooine to gain an audience with Gardulla the Hutt. (BH)

Antakarian Fire Dancer
this was a potent alcoholic drink. (SPG)

a huge gas giant located in the Prindaar System. It has six natural satellites, four of which support life. (GG4)

Antar 4
the fourth of six moons orbiting Antar, Antar 4 had an unusual rotational axis that was nearly parallel to its orbital plane. This configuration wreaked havoc on the moon's seasons. It also affected the moon's day/night cycles, as both sides of Antar 4 sometimes existed in daylight when the planet Antar is not eclipsed by its sun. During these eclipse phases, Antar 4 received virtually no light, except what was reflected off other moons. Antar 4 was the homeworld of the Gotal race, who developed sensitive horns which allow them to exist on Antar 4's ever-changing face. Antar 4 was the site of one of the earliest battles of secession, some nine years after the Battle of Naboo. (GG4, HNN4)

Antar 5
this was the fifth moon of the gas giant Antar, and was the site of a Gotal mining operation. (GG4)

Antar Band
this group of experienced smugglers, thieves, and cutthroats was led by Ujin Voli, and was largest rival to the Black Sun interests of Sprax along the Sisar Run. Voli recruited criminals who had formerly worked for other criminal organizations or were former law-enforcement agents. Among the group's membership were the Ishi Tib Zirlig and the Aramandi mercenary Ar'wa Nonshik, two reasons why Sprax chose to leave the Antar Band alone. (SSR)

Antared III
this planet had three major starports, located in the cities of Durollia, Pegg,and Hermos. (GMH)

Antares Six
this New Republic escort frigate, under the command of Syub Snunb, was dispatched to rescue the crew of the Liberator. (DE1)

Antares System
this star system was known to be the home of a species of poisonous butterflies, which used a stinger to inject an attacker with a deadly toxic. (MC48)

this was the native language spoken in the Prindaar System, particularly on the moons of Antar. (EGP)

Antarian Pea
this species of pea-producing vegetable was native to Antar 4. The peas of this plant were considered a staple in the diet of many races. (YDR)

Antarian Rangers
a para-military group based on several planets, the Antarian Rangers were formed by Marus Timpel and Kaskutal on Antar 4, some 600 years before the Battle of Yavin. The mission of the Antarian Rangers was simply to assist and aid the Jedi Knights in any way possible, although they were most often employed as front-line troops in battlezones. They were trained to be masters of any environment, in order to meet the various challenges assigned to them. The Jedi Council refused to comment on their position toward the Antarian Rangers, although they allowed it to continute to grow and expand over the years. Many individual Jedi valued their assistance and dedication, especially in situations where military force was needed. In the coming centuries, as the Jedi Order became more conservative and insular, they began to turn away from the use of separate organizations like the Antarian Rangers. This meant that the amount of work available to the Rangers began to diminish, and the organization was forced to drastically reduce its manpower. During the Clone Wars, the Antarian Rangers were able to briefly expand their efforts in support of the Jedi involvement in the war. Unfortunately, whole groups of Antarian Rangers were killed off, and many of the survivors scattered and went underground. Those that remained loyal to the Jedi found themselves hunted down as part of Emperor Palpatine's Jedi Purge, further reducing the organization's size and scope. Only a few groups managed to survive the Galactic Civil War, but they were openly sought out by Jedi Master Luke Skywalker. In the years following the Battle of Endor, the organization grew slowly, but proved to be invaluable during the formation and protection of the Great River during the Yuuzhan Vong invasion of the galaxy. (WS, WOTC)

Antbbianplourr III
the long-standing Emperor of Eiattu, he was Gror Pernon's brother. He became Emperor during the last years of the Old Republic, and reigned until he died during the Galactic Civil War. It was at this time that he was succeeded by his son, Uthorrferrell Cartha. Antbbianplourr's reign was characterized by the fact that he bartered away his planet's pride and honor in order to maintain his seat during the initial wave of Imperial conquests. (XWWP)

Ante-Endor Association
a group of fanatics who spread propaganda that states the Battle of Endor never took place, and that the Empire still holds sway in the galaxy. The roots of the AEA were based on Mrlsst, spreading from the remnants of Imperial control there. Wedge Antilles and Rogue Squadron were caught up in the AEA's propaganda, and tried to convince its followers of the truth of the Battle of Endor. However, the AEA preached an elaborate tangle of fabrications about the events of the Galactic Civil War, the end result of which dictated an Imperial victory over the Alliance. (XWPA)

a planet locked in perpetual winter, Anteevy was the site of the Imperial robotics construction facility known as Ice Station Beta during the Galactic Civil War. The Empire refined phrik here for use in the Darktrooper program, and also mined a number of other useful ores and minerals. (DF, TCG9)

this planet was the sector capital of Antemeridian Sector, and the base of operations for Moff Getelles. (POT)

this was the term used to describe the retractable antennae of the Balosar race. These organic receptors allowed a Balosar to hear things which normal humans could not. Many Balosar criminals used these antenepalps to listen into conversations surreptitiously, retracting them when they needed to avoid attention. (SWDB, SWI70)

this is an underworld slang term which refers to the hired thugs of a crimelord. Antenna-breakers are the goons sent out to collect the fees and interest charged by their employers, and are under order to break the antennae of their victim if they can't pay up. (WBC)

this Tiss-shar served as a mayor on the Tiss'sharl League's chief council, during the height of the New Order, and was considered among the handful of individuals who could eventually become vice president. However, shortly after the Battle of Yavin, Antha-Kres was assassinated, and was eventually succeeded by Geor-Dan-Thi. Many within the government of Tiss'sharl believed that Geor-Dan-Thi was behind the assassination, although no public evidence was every presented. (SWEPP)

this work of non-fiction was written by Jo Ewsli, and was based on his experiences with the design and development of the I-7 Howlrunner starfighter. (NEGV)

Anti-Artist Federation
this group of activists caused a stir in the art world of the planet Malastare, during the last decades of the Old Republic. Made up an eclectic mix of beings, the Anti-Artist Federation maintained that much of the art that was being produced wasn't actually art at all. Their mission was to expose these "frauds" who were collecting huges prices for their art, which they was being produced to the detriment of the environment or to inter-species relations. Quite often, the acts of the Anti-Artist Federation resulted in lost revenues for artists, which made the Federation unpopular in certain circles. (BH)

Anti-blaster Energy Field
this type of energy dissipation field was developed by the Empire during the Galactic Civil War. It was concurrently created by I'att Armaments. The theory behind the field was that the energy from a blaster bolt could be absorbed and dispersed across the surface of stormtrooper armor. The problem with the system was that the dispersion created an intense amount of heat that literally cooked the trooper inside the armor shell. I'att Armaments discovered a way to eliminate this problem with the addition of a heat dissipator unit and by imbedding zersium into the body glove worn by troopers. The body glove was also important because it protected the flesh of the trooper; the dissipation field unpredictably damaged living flesh. Moff Eisen Kerioth executed the leaders of I'att Armaments and tried to replicate the design for himself, but was unable to perfect it because Tinian I'att had appropriated several key components.

this was one of the potent medical drugs developed for use by the Grand Army of the Republic, during the height of the Clone Wars. (MBS)

this strange form of idea was created by the deity Cold Danda Sire. Anti-concepts were ideas which consumes other ideas. (CSWDW)

Anticoncussion Field Generator
a device which creates a stabilizing field that keeps cargo or passengers from feeling the effects of collisions with energy bolts or physical impacts. They can be starship-sized, or they can be built to protect space stations. These systems are very expensive. They create an umbrella-shaped magnetic field that absorbs the kinetic energy of the objects that hit it. It protects a starship by compressing around the impacting object, absorbing its energy and dispersing it along the rest of the magnetic field. (HSE, DFR, SCRE, CSA)
