this military term was used to describe the practice of having two or three crewmen sharing the same bunk. Usually done on overcrowded ships, hot-bedding forced crewmen to sleep in rotations, so that the bed was always in use by a different being. While sometimes expedient in combat situations, over the long-term hot-bedding could leading to discomfort and general loss of morale among the troops.

this blue star was the central body in the Hoth System, located on the Ison Corridor of the Anoat Sector of the galaxy.
this Jedi Master was the leader of the Army of Light, sent to Ruusan to defeat Lord Kaan and the Brotherhood of Darkness. Lord Hoth was killed when the Sith unleashed their thought bomb and obliterated both armies.
this snow planet was the sixth planet in the Hoth system, located along the Ison Corridor in the galaxy's Anoat Sector, some 50,250 light-years from the galactic core. It orbited a distant, blue-white star, and had three natural satellites. Just outside the orbit of Hoth was a huge asteroid belt, which many believed to be the result of the collision of two planets eons ago. The treacherous belt of asteroids maked any approach to the planet very hazardous. Its remote location made it the perfect site for an Alliance base three years after the Battle of Yavin. Many smaller asteroids got pulled in by Hoth's gravity, and rained down on the planet as meteors. The planet's normal daytime temperature was some thirty-degrees below zero, and its high-velocity wind and snow storms made it extremely inhospitable. Hoth had a fair amount of seismic activity, with underice "oceans" in the southern hemisphere and the tidal pull of three moons. This activity was constantly changing the various ice formations and creating vast, natural ice caves and tunnels. It was for these reasons that Alliance Major Kem Monnon chose it for Echo Base. Its harsh, frozen climate gave rise to only two major lifeforms, the Wampa ice creature and the tauntaun. Small rodents, wirelike ice worms, and hardy lichens completed the planet's minimal foodchain. Note that Marvel Comics' Star Wars issue 78, indicates that Hoth had more than one sun at the center of its system.

this ferocious-looking beast is native to the planet Kinyen, but it is really a gentle, loyal beast that is often domesticated by the Gran. The houjix is a blue- and yellow-striped quadriped with large teeth, a spiked, club-like tail, and two feet on each of the front two legs. Chewbacca had a holographic representation of a houjix on his holochess board on the Millennium Falcon.
an extremely large, humanoid race originally from the Ansuroer Sector, the Houk spread throughout the galaxy following their first contact with a Vaathkree trading ship. Their skin was colored deep blue or purple, and their eyes were a piercing yellow. They were considered second in the galaxy in brute strength only to the Wookiee race, but they did not display the violent rage of the Wookiee. However, they did have short tempers, and preferred fighting to any other solution to a problem. The Houk generally used any method possible to gain an advantage over their opponents, including sneaking up on them and attacking from behind. Thus, many other races considered them cowards. The Houk which settled on the planet Sriluur were often at war with their neighbors, the Weequay, until the Empire stepped in and subjugated both races. The Empire planned to use the Houk race as a basis for creating the "perfect slave," but it was unknown if their program was successful. During their history, the Houk race produced few technological advancements, but adapted well to the use of hyperdrives and modern weapons.

Hound the Hawk-Bat
this was a spirited children's game, popular during the height of the New Order.
Bossk's modified YV-666 starship, it was purchased by the bounty hunter after his previous ship was destroyed on Gandolo IV. Bossk had it highly modified from its origins as a light freighter, including shields and weapons upgrades that included a quad-laser cannon and a concussion missile launcher. Many of these modifications were done by Kuat Drive Yards, which installed a fail-safe code into the computer systems. Much of the ship was rebuilt to accomodate the Trandoshan physiology, and Bossk had a specialized set of controls added to allow him to simply rest his arms in a pair of troughs and control the ship via movements of his body. The Hound's Tooth was also one of the few ships that was capable of changing course while in hyperspace. Bossk also added an X10-D droid brain to control shipboard systems. This brain responded to verbal commands, which allowed Bossk to have access to ship's systems from anywhere on the ship. Note that while the Star Wars: Customizable Card Game: Dagobah says that X10-D is the computer system, Tales of the Bounty Hunters indicates that X10-D was a huge service droid used by Bossk to move cargo. The droid X10-D had no built-in computer, but took commands from the Hound's Tooth. Bossk also kept the Nashtah Pup hidden in one of the holds for emergency use. The Hound's Tooth was a tempermental ship, as the main computer worked to control every on-board system while reacting to Bossk's verbal commands. When Bossk allowed Chenlambec and Tinian I'att to pilot the ship, they introduced the ship's computer to Flirt. Flirt eventually insinuated herself into the computer core, and showed it that Bossk was willing to sacrifice the ship in order to keep Chen's pelt intact. The computer rebelled, locking out Bossk from making any verbal commands while keeping the Trandoshan locked in a freezer-locker. After delivering Bossk to Imperial Governor Io Desnand, Chen and Tinian took control of the Hound for themselves. The Trandoshan eventually recovered his ship, and used it on many hunts until he became entangled with Boba Fett, during the other hunter's search of Kuat of Kuat. When Bossk tried to steal the Slave I, drifting above Tatooine after Fett was consumed by the Sarlacc, he was shocked to discover that Fett was still alive. He had loaded the computer system of a mock-up of Slave I to send out a false self-destruct alarm if someone boarded the ship, and Bossk fell for the bait. He fled the scene in an escape pod, and Boba Fett took control of the Hound's Tooth. He then traveled to the remains of Kud'ar Mub'at's web to find answers, but was fired upon by Balancesheet. The ship was nearly destroyed, but was repaired and used by Dengar and Neelah to draw off Kodir of Kuhlvult's forces. It was eventually captured by the Kuati nobles in the Oranessan System, who used the fail-safe code to shut her down, and and left to drift. Fett and Dengar managed to restart it and return to Kuat, where they finally put all the pieces of the puzzle together.

this is Industrial Automaton's SPD-series droid. It is a box-like machine that rolls on treads. Rectractable arms allow it to extend sensors that pick up the trail of many kinds of security breaches. The Hound was equipped with a pulse scan emitter, a laser scan emitter, audio and visual receptors, and a variety of sensor systems. A pair of fine grasper arms allowed the Hound to manipulate simple objects, and four fifteen-meter-long extensor arms allowed it to reach into the most inaccessible nooks and crannies. Like an R-series astromech, the Hound communicated in a series of chirps and whistles known as DroidSpeak.

this was one of the four lesser Houses of Tapani Sector, known for is hedonistic approach to life. Families within House Barnaba never really wanted to become dominant, and developed great skill at playing one House against another, while ensuring that Barnaba came out ahead in the end. During the height of the New Order, House Barnaba found itself aligned with House Melantha, and working closer with House Cadriaan.
this was the governing body of the Benelex Bounty Hunters Guild. It was led by Corvastan Benelex.
one of the three greater Houses of Tapani Sector, House Cadriaan was known for its openmindedness and its skills in the mercantile trades. Its capital was on Procopia, and only during the height of the New Order did this House begin to assert its power. Members of House Cadriaan held themselves to a higher standard than most other Houses, resorting to spying and underhanded tactics only when absolutely necessary to preserve the House. The House's provinces lie along the Shapani Bypass, and the internal military of House Cadriaan was quickly augmented to preserve its hold on the sector's greatest properties.
this was one of the lesser Houses of Tapani Sector, and was considered to be the most conservative of the seven Houses. Calipsa chose to ally itself with the dominant House of the time, using this position to avoid negotiation. Members of House Calipsa were known for their short tempers and lack of patience. Despite its shortcomings, House Calipsa maintained the second-largest number of holdings in Tapani Sector, second only to House Mecetti.
this minor Kuati house attempted to win the favor of the Empire by taking credit for the prototype weapons systems which were deployed on the Star Destroyers Burning Vengeance and Legacy, during the height of the Galactic Civil War. An agent of House Deponn intercepted and killed an agent of House Andrim, stealing the results of the weapons tests in the hopes of proving to the Empire that they were the original builders. The House Deponn agent was eventually apprehended by a group of freelance merceanries hired by House Andrim, dashing the Dpeonn plans for prestige.

this was one of the many trading houses that made up the economy of the planet Cularin, during the last years of the Old Republic. Hirskaala appeared on Cularin shortly after the Battle of Naboo, and quickly became one of the larger trading concerns on the planet. The operations of House Hirskaala were targetted by agents of the Metatheran Cartel, in an effort to undermine Hirskaala's activities while the Cartel gained a foothold in the Cularin System.
this was one of the greater Houses of Tapani Sector, and dominated the Great Council during the modern era of the galaxy. Nothing mattered more to the nobles of House Mecetti than acquiring and keeping power, and the end always justified the means. Mecetti controlled fourteen distinct star systems in Tapani Sector, as well as its own personal army and navy, known as the Mecetti House Guard. Often, the House mentality forced House Mecetti to act against the better good of Tapani Sector, but that mattered little in the grander scheme. Its reputation among the Houses is that of ruthlessness and vindictive reprisal, and it continued to gain power in Tapani Sector by setting the other Houses against each other and cleaning up later. House Mecetti was most infamously known for its support and alliance with the Mecrosa Order, many millennia before the Battle of Yavin. Mecetti controlled fourteen different star systems in Tapani Sector, giving it the largest number of holdings of all the seven Houses. Mecetti even tried to eliminate all the heirs of its rival Houses during the Mecetti Purge, some twenty years before the Battle of Hoth. The rise of Emperor Palpatine helped deflect attention from Tapani Sector, and House Mecetti virtually destroyed House Pelagia before being retrained. Only the timely efforts of the nobles in each House, as well as the appearance of the Empire in Tapani Sector, maintained strong enough bloodlines to thwart Mecetti's efforts.
(PGT, TSIA, LOE)
this was one of the original twelve ruling Houses of Tapani Sector, and was one of the Sector's greater Houses. It was most famous because it produced Shey Tapani, and his descendants believed that they were the rightful rulers of the sector. House Melantha maintained a great number of contacts on the planet Coruscant, buth during the Old Republic and the New Order, giving it the political clout it needed to rise to power. Members of this House were considered to be arrogant and obnoxious by their peers in other Houses. Despite its powerful standing, House Melantha has rarely been the dominant House in the Great Council, always sitting behind House Pelagia or House Mecetti. Melantha tried to gain power during the fall of the Old Republic, openly supporting Emperor Palpatine and providing its members to the Emperor's court. There were rumors that an Imperial Dark Side Adept was the real power behind House Melantha during the New Order, but these rumors were never proven.

this was one of the lesser ruling Houses of Tapani Sector, despite the fact that it traced it roots to the original colonists who settled on Pelagon more than 13,000 years ago. Pelagia was best known for being recruited by the Jedi Knights of the Old Republic, eventually establishing a bloodline which was strong with the Force. Members of House Pelagia held honor and dignity in a higher regard than most other Houses, a position which led them to turn to other methods of gaining power. House Pelagia was considered one of the most adept at twisting the truth to their own ends, promising much less than they actually seem to. During the early years of Tapani Sector's history, House Pelagia was the most powerful of all the seven Houses. Their ties to the Jedi Knights only furthered their position in the Great Council. However, with the rise in power of Emperor Palpatine, many of the other Houses dropped their support of Pelagia and turned to House Melantha or House Mecetti. House Pelagia's position floundered to the point that it was deemed a lesser House, having lost more than seventy percent of its representation on the Great Council. The House survived, though, and began taking steps to regains its former strength.
