Askaj
this boiling-hot desert planet is the homeworld of the Askajian race. It was located in the Outer Rim, about a day's travel off the Rimma Trade Route. Note that the Star Wars Customizable Card Game claims the name of this planet is Askajia. (TJP, CCG7)

Askajian
a humanoid race with deep familial traditions, the Askajians live on the desert world of Askaj. Their bodies have become extremely efficient at absorbing and storing water. An Askajian can survive for long periods in the open desert, returning in a thinned state. Upon consuming water, their bodies seem to inflate, hoarding the water for later use. The females have six breasts, which come in handy following the delivery of a litter of cubs. The cubs are not named until after their first birthday. Many Askajians raise tomuons for their milk, meat, and wool. The Askajians are known for their luxurious fabric, woven from tomuon wool. Weavers and dancers were revered in Askajian society. Weavers bring income to the Askajian people, as tomuon fabrics fetch a high price throughout the galaxy. Dancers were important to the religious and historical aspects of their society, maintaining the tribal histories and legends. (TJP, THG, AE)

Askar
this Bothan clan originally discovered the Dresselian System, and settled in the system's asteroid belt to set up mining operations. They left the planet Dressel alone, recognizing that the evolving Dresselian race didn't need any interference. They were subjugated by Imperial forces that wanted the mining operations for their own uses, during the establishment of the New Order. (GG12)

Ask-ar
one of the six Tiss'shar races, the Ask-ar were characterized by the red, mask-like markings on their faces. (UANT)

Askar Rayl'skar
this Bothan was the leader of the Askar clan during the Caamas Incident, some ten years after the death of Grand Admiral Thrawn. He was present when Drend Navett tried to set off a riot in merchant's Square on Bothawui, shortly after the revelation of the Caamas Document. Rayl'skar tried to calm the crowd, but was thoroughly unsuccessful. (SOP, UANT)

Askarian Worm
a small, wriggly creature. (SWJ9)

Askra
this was one of the many Bothan clans. Affiliation with the clan was indicated by the suffix 'skra added to an individual's family name. (GCG, WOTC)

Askrik
this was one of the more common names used by Trandoshan hunters. Like most Trandoshan names, it was reserved for males, but could be adopted by those rare females who became hunters. In the Trandoshan language, the name meant "bleeds his enemies dry". (GCG)

Askrut
this was one of the many names given to male Bothans. In the Bothan language, it meant "even-tempered." (GCG, WOTC)

A-SL-4557.607.232
this was the Imperial decree which legalized the procurement of slaves, under certain conditions. (GG9)

Aslaja
located on the planet Bunduki, this city was the home of the galaxy's most famous teras kasi martial arts tournament, during the years leading up to the Clone Wars. (HNN5)

Aslat
this was a common name among Quarren females. It meant "celestial". (GCG)

AS-M12
this spherical, general-purpose message droid was produced by Arakyd Industries during the New Order. It was known by the brand name of Seeker, and was designed to provide its owner with a safe, effective way to communicate across the galaxy without having HoloNet access. Designed around the basic Viper probe droid design, the AS-M12 droid traveled across the galaxy in a specially-designed, civilian version of he Viper's hyperspace pod. The droid was equipped with a variety of recording and playback devices, and had several methods of identification which it could use to verify the recipient's identity. (SESB, FTD)

Asmall
the New Republic established a defense net around this planet, shortly after the Battle of Endor, in order to protect the manufacturing facilities on its surface. (WBC)

Asmeru
this planet was a dun-colored, arid world in the Senex Sector. Asmeru was once a world of wondrous cities and grand palaces, but a sudden climatic change forced the natives to flee to other worlds in the sector. In the interim years, the cities and buildings fell into disrepair and ruin from neglect. After the climate stabilized, the world was populated by Ossan slaves who were created on Karfeddion but found to be defective in some way. The slaves, bred for agricultural work, managed to survive and established their own culture on the planet. (COD)

ASN-121
this assassin droid was owned by Zam Wesell during the years leading up to the Clone Wars. ASN-121 was originally designed as a courier, but was modified in many ways to perform the duties of an assassin. It was equipped with an electrical field generator to protect it from being grasped or caught. A communications cylinder slot was modified by Zam, with the cylinder itself carrying kouhons or other deadly creatures which could not be traced to any individual. The chuck which held the cylinder was capable of holding a harpoon launcher or sniper blaster. Glass cutters allowed ASN-121 to quietly enter a building, and tiny repulsorlift engines allowed the droid to have incredible maneuverability. Zam Wesell used the droid to deliver a pair of kouhons to the apartment of Padme' Amidala, after the bounty hunter's attempt to execute the Senator when she landed on Coruscant failed. ASN-121 was caught by Obi-Wan Kenobi, but the droid managed to drag the Jedi Master on a thrilling ride through the aerial streets of Coruscant. In order to try and avoid capture, Zam Wesell was forced to shot the droid out of the sky. (TCG1, AOTC, SWI60)

Asonel Caves
this massive web of underground caverns and tunnels was located on the planet Prakith. The caves ran through the mountains just outside of Prak City, and were believed to have been created by ancient lava flows. The original settlers who came to Prakith discovered all manner of gemstones hidden in the caves, and outside mining interests eventually moved in and stripped the caves of their gems. Over time, the artificial tunnels created during the mining process left the caves unstable, and many cave-ins claimed the lives of miners. After the gemstones ran out and the mines were abandoned, the Asonel Caves becae a haven for criminals and rebels. (PH)

Asori
this was one of the most common names given to female Corellians. (GMR9)

Asp
this was one of the many Strike-class cruisers that made up the front lines of the Imperial Naval fleet. (XVT)

ASP-19
a series of ASP droids modified for use as assassin droids, under the command of Darth Vader. They had been developed with AA-1 verbobrains in order to better anticipate and act upon Vader's movements. (SE, BTM, SESB)

ASP-4
this model of the ASP-series droid was used to assist big-game hunters. (LOE)

ASP-6
this was a series of droids used to train living beings in the use of certain weaponry. The ASP-6 was armed with a vibroblade and a blaster. (LOE)

ASP-7
a series of ASP droids manufactured by Industrial Automation to be cargo movers. Like most other ASPs, they were thin constructs supported by hundreds of servomotors and hydraulic linkages, and could lift huge crates without a problem. Most have a single ocular receptor and minimal auditory sensors, although upgrades can be found. Because these droids were given feeble programming and minimal intelligence, most ASPs were heavily modified by their owners. (SWSE, MTSE, FTD)

ASP-704
this ASP-7 series droid was employed by the Imperial Prefect of Tatooine, shortly before the Battle of Yavin. It was part of a shipment of 200 units, ordered to install communications relays throughout Mos Eisley. The Mark IV Imperial probe droids that patrolled the city regarded the relays as illegal communications systems, and often called stormtroopers to investigate their perfectly legal installation. ASP-704 eventually developed a personality tic, and would strike out at a nearby Mark IV before it could interrupt its work. (MTSE)

ASP-707
a series of menial labor droids often used to transport heavy loads from one location to another. (CCG9)

Aspiration
this Victory-class Star Destroyer joined the Imperial forces shortly after the Battle of Endor, but its Captain defected with Prince-Admiral Krennel when he broke away from Imperial service. It was stationed in orbit around Corvis Minor Four, in defense of the system. It was dispatched to report on the destruction of Rogue Squadron near Corvis Minor Five, but arrived too late to report any concrete evidence. (IR)

Aspre Plunge
an exclusive resort set into the northern cliffs of Ataria Island on Spira. The needle-shaped resort itself extends over 100 meters below the surface of the ocean, and rose several stories above the top of the cliff. (SWJ1)

ASP-series Droid
a tall, spindly general purpose droid manufactured by Industrial Automaton, the Asp-series can be configured for many purposes. The basic construction of the ASP-series is centered on a spindly body connected by hundreds of servomotors. Heavy-duty hydraulic linkages allow the droids to perform the heaviest of menial duties. (SE, SWSE, BTM)

Asran System
this planetary system was located in Brak Sector. (FBS)

Asrat
this planet was the home world of a group of religious pundits who worshipped a collection of holy children. Known simply as the Holy Children of Asrat, the children loudly denounced the New Order, so the Empire sent their trained assassin Dengar to kill them. Dengar's conscience suddenly began to resurface, and he opted to leave Imperial service rather than killing them. (TBH)

Assant, Darsha
this Jedi padawan was under the tutelage of Master Anoon Bondara shortly before the Battle of Naboo. She had been orphaned on Alderaan, and discovered at the age of four by Master Bondara and brought to Courscant. In order to complete her training and become a full Jedi Knight, Darsha was ordered by Mace Windu and the Jedi Council to recover Oolth the Fondorian from the Crimson Corridor of Coruscant. The humanoid had information which was vital to the Jedi, but was afraid to travel to the Jedi Temple because of the presence of the Raptors gang. Anoon wondered at the Council's choice of tasks, but Darsha was sure of her abilities. Unfortunately, she underestimated the Raptors, who disabled her skyhopper and forced her to flee with Oolth in tow. During their flight, Darsha lost her grip on Oolth, and the Fondorian fell several hundred level to his death. Ashamed, Darsha returned to the Temple and told Bondara about the accident, and the pair set out to see if Oolth had survived. They were caught in the crossfire of Darth Maul's attempt to execute Hath Monchar and Lorn Pavan, and Master Bondara sacrificed himself to allow the other to live. Darsha fell deeper into despair, but Lorn's acceptance of her served to bolster her confidence. They nearly survived to reach the surface of Coruscant, but Darth Maul attacked. In order to save Lorn's life and ensure that news of the Trade Federation's blockade of Naboo reached the Jedi, Darsha followed her Master's example and sacrificed herself in an effort to lure Maul into a trap. She collected fuel cells using the Force, while dueling Maul with her yellow lightsaber. Her plan nearly succeeded, but Maul managed to survive while Darsha was killed. In the end, she became one with the Force. (DMSH, COD)

Assassin
this was one of the multitude of Imperial-class Star Destroyers which made up the Imperial Navy fleet, during the height of the Galactic Civil War. (XW)

Assassin Droid
the name given to any number of droid types which were programmed to seek out and eliminate a specific target. They can be programmed to kill an individual, or to take out an entire population. There were also the so-called war droids used as guards and soldiers in many upstart planetary armies. The IG-series of assassin droids was among the best at performing their duties. They were banned during Palpatine's rule as Emperor, after they started to be used against Imperial forces. (ESB, COTF, SWSB)

Assassin's Guild
this band of assassins was formed during the last decades of the Old Republic. Analogous in many respects to the Bounty Hunters Guild, the Assassin's Guild worked with independent parties to match up death marks with available assassins. (RHD, MC48, MCI3)

Assassins' Guild
this guild was established to oversee the various activities of the galaxy's assassins. It had a number of subdivisions, geared toward the specific professions of assassins, such as poisoners and bounty hunters. The Elite Circle was a separate subdivision, which catered to large clients. Given that the majority of its members were wanted criminals, the Guild's operations and central location were a tightly-kept secret. (HSL)

Assault Armor Division
this branch of the Imperial Army was responsible for the implementation of heavy machinery, such as AT-AT walkers. (NEGC)

Assault Cruiser
this form of warship was developed by the Bothans during the early years of the New Republic. Smaller in size that a Victory-class Star Destroyer, the Assault Cruiser boasted twenty percent more firepower and fifty percent more shielding and armor plating. It was leaner and less angular that the Victory-class ship, and was designed to take a beating while giving one out. The design and construction of these warships was heavily protested by many factions, since the Assault Cruiser was developed after the Imperial Remnant had negotiated a peace with the New Republic and the state of war between the two had been nullified. The ships proved to be excellent for carrying starfighters into battle, with a pair of huge hangars located amidships. The launch apertures from the ship allowed fighters to head up or down, depending on the conditions of battle, and made recovering fighters at the end of an engagement quick and easy. (DTO)

Assault Frigate
basically a modified 700-meter-long Dreadnaught-class starship, the assault frigate was stripped of its outer shell to increase engine capacity and fuel efficiency. Two dorsal solar fins were also added, increasing maneuverability and energy production. There were no docking bays on an assault frigate, but there were 20 retractable docking tubes that could be extended from the ship's holds. The assault frigate was also equipped with a great deal of droid and computer-automated systems. Thus, crew requirements for the assault frigate are just 5,000 beings, down from the 16,000 required on the original Dreadnaught. (HTTE, RASB, TTSB)

Assault Gunboat
generic name for the Cygnus Spaceworks Xg-1 Alpha-class starfighter. (XW)

Assault on Vardoss IV
this was one of the most famous historical battles of the Empire. (GFT)

Assault Shuttle
a 30-meter starship loaded with tractor beam projectors, sensor packages, harpoon guns, concussion missile launchers, and automated blaster cannons. Designed around the transportation and support of a 40 spacetrooper squadron, the assault shuttle had a crew of five and limited navicomputer capabilities. (ISB)

Assault Transport
a well-armed transport ship used by the Empire, such as the KonGar Ship Works ATR. (TIE)

Assemblage
this was the name given to the nearly-public forum established during the early years of the New Republic as the basis for its government. The Assemblage was made up of Senators and representatives, and the Provisional Council was drawn from its ranks. (DFR)

Assemblage Commons
this was the primary facility, established on Coruscant by the New Republic, in which matters of state were discussed with civilian audiences. The Commons was essentially a huge auditorium, with tiers of seats along the outer walls. A simple lectern or dais was located in such a position that all in attendance could see and hear the speaker. (DFR)

Assembler
this species of space-going arachnids is capable of exisiting in hard vacuum. Their exoskeletons contain the necessary proteins to protect them from decompression when traveling among the stars. Their homeworld's name and location are well-kept secrets. However, individuals can be found floating in the gaps between planets, most notably the middle-man Kud'ar Mub'at. Each assembler is comprised of a primary intelligence node and the web it controls. Each node can create subnodes from its own neural fibers, and can use them for a number of facilities. A subnode which outlives its usefulness can be re-ingested by the assembler, and the physical and genetic material can be reused. In this way, assemblers tends to be quite possessive, and will reuse anything they find to augment their webs. Each intelligent primary node is also quite jealous of its own intelligence, and will strive to keeps its subnodes form becoming too intelligent. Successive generations of assemblers often grow from these subnodes, whoever, and the strongest subnode will often consume its creator, continuing the line. Any assembler which dies, but is not consumed, can be brought back to life by the application of power and data mixed in the correct proportion. This allowed Boba Fett to re-animate Kud'ar Mub'at in order to determine Neelah's identity. (MA, HM)

Assembly Hall of the Commonality
located adjacent to the Sphere of Commonality, this was the primary governmentaly building found in the city of Efavan, on the planet Vorzyd 5. It was located in the high Town district, and was the primary facilities used by the representatives of the Commonality on Vorzyd 5. (GORW)

Assembly House
this was the primary governmental building located in the city of Weogar, on the planet Clak'Dor VII. (GORW)

Assessor
the Imperial customs frigate which once intercepted Roark Garnet as he tried to flee Imperial space. The Assessor was also the ship that intercepted Han Solo and Chewbacca during their most fateful Kessel Run. Han was forced to dump the load of spice he was transporting, but was unable to recover it and deliver it to Jabba the Hutt. This put him deeply in debt, and forced him to hide out on Tatooine. It was commanded by Tybert Capucot. (RPG, RD)

Assocation of Free Trade Worlds
this group of activists was one of the many groups which mixed the politics of alien rights with business concerns. They were active during the last decades of the Old Republic. (COD)

Ast
this prefix, which was used in the names of many modern planets, was used by the Old Republic to denote a world which housed am ASTrocartographic research station. Over the centuries, the word Ast was simply used to describe the planet. (GMR9)

Ast Kikorie
this planet was located in the Moddell Sector of the galaxy. The prefix "Ast" was a remnant of the planet's history as an Old Republic astrocartographic research outpost, originally established to map the areas of Wild Space closed to the Moddell Sector. The Old Republic constructed a ring of orbital telescopes around Ast Kikorie, but eventually abandoned them when the Clone Wars broke out. Over time, the telescopes were abandoned but not forgotten. During the early years of the New Republic, astrocartographers found record of Ast Kikories' telescopes, and made the dangerous journey to the Moddell Sector in order to use "free" telescope time. The natives of the planet called it "Downbelow", a reference to the ring of telescopes and other docking platforms that fill Ast Kikorie's skies. (GMR9)

Astaal Vilbum
this Baragwin was a noted Jedi scholar, during the last decades of the Old Republic. He knew of several Jedi Holocrons which were stored in the Jedi Temple on Coruscant, and was one of the first to discover the Holocron which told of Volfe Karkko's imprisonment on Kiffex. This discovery led Mace Windu to dispatch a team to Kiffex to eliminate any threat from the re-awakened Anzati magician. (OWS, DRKN)

Asteroid 7785
this piece of rock was once part of the planet Alderaan. After Grand Moff Tarkin destroyed the planet, the resulting rubble formed a wide asteroid field known as the Graveyard. Shortly after recovering from the injuries he suffered during the Battle of Yavin, Darth Vader circulated a rumor that the Royal Palace of Alderaan had been discovered intact on Asteroid 7785. He hoped to lure Leia Organa and any other of the survivors of the battle to Alderaan, where Captain Janus Bonn waited for them. Vader then augmented the rumors by adding a story about the mining survey team discovering a survivor in the asteroid who claimed to be Bail Organa. Vader went so far as to build a replica of the Palace inside the asteroid, using motion sensors and other mechanisms to trap his victims inside. Unfortunately for Vader, a group of Alliance agents intercepted the message from Hanos Darr and Zaz Hamiroz before it reached Leia Organa, and arrived at the asteroid before she did. The trap was sprung, but without the victims Vader intended. In reality, a tiny fragment of the Royal Palace's underground stucture was discovered in the asteroid. (GA)

Asteroid Dancer
this YT-1500 freighter made a regular run to Nova Station, in the Carida System, during the height of the Yuuzhan Vong invasion of the galaxy. (SBS)

Asteroid Director
produced by the SlaynRoche Company, this small repulsor sled was designed to assist in moving asteroids to and from mining operations.

Astin, Fable
this tall, slender woman was a Captain in the Alliance military, and was the leader of the Harrier infiltration team. She was also a young Jedi in training. Fable was one of youngest beings ever appointed the rank of Captain, and at the age of 19 was also one of the youngest infiltration operatives. Her mother had been a Jedi Knight, and instructed Fable's father in its uses. When Fable's father was killed in a struggle with one of the Emperor's Inquisitors, Fable and her mother were forced to flee and hide from Palpatine's reach. Despite her military training and sensitivity to the Force, Fable was also easily distracted and moody. After her team suffered a loss during a mission to Nysza III, Fable was faced with the Dark Side of the Force in a confrontation with the Dark Jedi Vialco, who was guarding the Imperial communications bunker she was ordered to destroy. The bunker was taken out, but Vialco soundly defeated Fable in a short battle of wills. Later, in a chance encounter on the planet Iscera, Fable met Jaalib Brandl, and followed him back to Trulalis. There, she was introduced to Adalric Brandl, Jaalib's father, and was given instruction in the deeper use of the Force to help her defeat Vialco. Despite the needs of Harrier Team, Fable remained on Trulalis for many months, striving too hard and making more mistakes than she thought she was capable of making. During her training, Fable fell in love with Jaalib, a relationship that Adalric forbade. He sent Jaalib back to Iscera and called Vialco to Trulalis, provoking a battle that renewed their aggressions. She was unaware of Adalric's true intentions until she had defeated Vialco and refused to kill him outright. Adalric prodded her, then sent an image into her mind - that of Vialco recovering his lightsaber and lunging toward her. She spun her own lightsaber around and decapitated Vialco, only to snap out of the vision and realize that Vialco had never recovered the weapon. Adalric then imprisoned her, hoping to return her to the planet Byss as a gift to the Emperor. (SWJ8)

Astopone, Shasheva
this woman served the Alliance as a deep-cover agent on the planet Coruscant, during the height of the Galactic Civil War. She was well-known as the heiress of the fortune her father had made in the export business, and was one of the most generous sponsors of the Galactic Museum and the Skydome Botanical Gardens. Her secret life as an Alliance agent began when Bail Organa recruited her during the early years of the New Order. She agreed to help the Alliance by using her influence and position to meet with leaders of business and government, gathering information that she eventually passed on to the Alliance. However, she lived in fear of being discovered, and would only meet her contacts in highly-public places. (CCW)

Astral

Astrographic Survey Institute
this New Republic agency was charged with the identification and survey of unexplored worlds. ASI defined the planetary coordinates used in navigation computers. (BTS, SOL)

Astrolabe
a New Republic Astrogator-class probe, it was rerouted from its normal survey mission to monitor the Koornacht Cluster just before the start of the Yevethan Great Purge. Etahn A'baht had asked his old friend, Kiles L'toth, to divert a survey ship to the Cluster before the Fifth Battle Group arrived there. However, the Astrolabe was discovered at Doornik-1142 by Vol Noorr and the Purity, which fired on the small survey ship and disabled it. The three crewmen were killed, and the entire incident was used by Nil Spaar as part of his plan to take over the New Republic. He publicly blamed Leia Organa-Solo for their deaths, since - he claimed - they were acting on her orders to scout out an invasion of the Cluster. (BTS, SOL)

Astromech Droid
these small droids were designed for use with small starfighters. They are basically self-contained navigation computers, but also are programmed for starship maintenance. Industrial Automation produced many of the best astromech droids, including the R2, R5, and R7 series. (SW, SCRE, DE1)

Asymptotic Approach to Divinity
this pilgrim ship was originally commissioned by a group of fanatical Verpine mathemagi, many decades before the onset of the Clone Wars. Being of Verpine manufacture, the ship was outfitted with bunks and systems that catered to the Verpine physiology. This included an obvious lack of an intercom system, since the Verpine could communicate via their organic systems. However, the mathemagi lost their savings in an investment scandal, and the Approach was left without a buyer. It was later purchased by a cruise company and renamed the Stardust. (YDR)

this female Bothan was living in the Invisible Sector of the Coruscant underworld when Rogue Squadron infiltrated the planet prior to the New Republic's assault on it. She was a member of the Alien Combine, noticeable by her black pelt, which is punctuated by white splotches on her chest, head, and hands. She tried to come onto Gavin Darklighter, who rejected her. She labeled him a bigot, and brought him to the Combine for punishment. Asyr soon discovered that Gavin was simply scared, and was as understanding of alien species as any non-human. She was a graduate of the Bothan Military Academy, graduating a year behind Peshk Vri'syk. This training earned her the respect of the Rogues and the New Republic, and she was given a place in the squadron following the liberation of Coruscant. She and Gavin became romantically involved, but were discreet about it. She was watched by Borsk Fey'lya, who had hoped that Asyr would remain loyal to the Bothan political ideals and could provide potentially damaging information about the Rogues. She refused his demands, and remained loyal to the Squadron. When Asyr and Gavin made their relationship public and decided to adopt children, Fey'lya stepped in to block their efforts. He felt that Asyr wasn't behaving in a Bothan-enough fashion, and told her in no uncertain terms that any further dalliance with Gavin would have serious repercussions. She once again refused to accept Fey'lya's demands, but also realized that she and Gavin would be unable to have the life they wanted. She went on a rampage, flying beyond herself during the assaults on Liinade III and Corvis Minor Five, until her ship collided with an enemy fighter over Corvis Minor Five. Her loss came as a shock to Gavin and the Rogues, who mourned her deeply. However, Asyr herself managed to survive, having been rescued by the Errant Venture. She swore Booster Terrik, Mirax Terrik, and Iella Wessiri to secrecy, leaving the New Republic in the hope of bringing about changes to Bothan society by working undercover. (WG, KT, IR)
