a form of communications which requires visual contact between the sending device and the remote location.
similar in size and shape to a comlink, this device uses bursts of light to send a signal. Flashes and coloration can be used in a sort of code to signal another individual far away. The comlight is somewhat more effective than a comlink in situations where slience and stealth are necessary, but only in those situations where a bright light wouldn't be noticed.

Commando Team 22
the team of Noghri commandos sent by Grand Admiral Thrawn to intercept Princess Leia on Kashyyyk, following the failure of the first two attempts to capture Princess Leia. She was trying to hide from Thrawn by mingling with the Wookiees, but the Noghri tracked her to Kashyyyk and attacked. Chewbacca's friend Salporin was killed in the attack, but so were all but one of the Noghri. Khabarakh was the sole survivor, and the uselessness of the attack turned him from the life of a commando to that of a New Republic sympathizer.
Commando Team 4
the team of Noghri commandos sent by Grand Admiral Thrawn to intercept Princess Leia on Bpfassh, following Thrawn's attack there. They tried to trick Han and Leia into a mockup of the Millennium Falcon, but were routed when Han realized that the ship was a fake.

Commandoes of the Confederacy
this was the name of the military force that was created from the militias of those credit-poor star systems that chose to support Count Dooku and the Confederacy of Independent Systems, during the early stages of the Clone Wars. Rather than supplying manufacturing or financial support to the Separatists - like the Commerce Guild or the Techno Union - these star systems sent their military forces to fight back against the stagnation of the Old Republic.
this colorful, flowering plant is used in decorative gardens.
this planet, located near the Corellian System and sitting on the outer edge of the Core Worlds, was a trading outpost and spaceport.

this was the primary business facility located in Hreas Port City, on Lenthalis. Shortly before the Battle of Hoth, a series of riots broke out between rival gangs, around the Commerce Concourse.
this was one of the largest shipping conglomerates given a trade franchise during the last decades of the Old Republic. The Commerce Guild was established to obtain raw materials and ensure that they were made available to the entire galaxy, but at prices which were established and maintained by the Guild. Membership in the Guild was taken quite seriously, and smaller corporations who chose not to join were harassed and bullied into bankruptcy or membership. The Commerce Guild was also one of the loudest supporters of the Trade Federation, following on the Federation's coattails whenever legislation involving trade was mentioned in galactic politics. When the Federation was defeated at the Battle of Naboo, the Commerce Guild's leadership saw its chance to step in and fill the power void. Through overt manipulation of the Republic and covert activities - such as the niobarium pollution of Vorian Four - the Commerce Guild solidified its position of power shortly before the Clone Wars. In order to protect its investments, the Commerce Guild borrowed from the Trade Federation's ideals and developed its own droid army. It then threw its support to Count Dooku and the Separatists, but chose not to become openly involved in the growing conflict with the Old Republic.

formed by the Emperor Palpatine at the beginning of his reign, the Commission for the Preservation of the New Order (COMPNOR, for short) was created to provide the galxay's idealistic youths a vehicle for removing the chaos of the Old Republic's death. Palpatine quickly saw the advantages of the youth movement during the height of the Clone Wars, when the group was first formed as the Commission for the Protection of the Republic. Palpatine began subtly twisting it to his own use, as a vehicle for instilling the basic tenets of the New Order into everyday galactic life.
Commission for the Protection of the Republic
known as COMPOR, this was the affiliation of teenagers who believed that the Old Republic should remain in control of the galaxy. COMPOR was formed during the early stages of the Clone Wars, and gained power as the Separatists fought harder with each battle. The group was one of the first to establish pro-human membership rules and discriminate against other races, although their motivations were based on the make-up of the Separatist leadership. COMPOR members saw that Muuns, Gossams, Neimoidians, and Geonosians were at the forefront of the Confederacy of Independent Systems, so these races became the object of their vehemence. When Chancellor Palpatine named himself Emperor, COMPOR followed close behind in its support, becoming COMPNOR, the Commission for the Preservation of the New Order.
Committee Against Non-Sentient Abuse
this group, formed during the last decades of the Old Republic, protested against the use of non-sentient beings in activities that did not require them.

also known as the giant tauntaun, this was the most prevalent subspecies of tauntaun native to the planet Tatooine.
this was the only species of thranta to survive the destruction of the planet Alderaan. The reason for this was that it had been exported to the gas giant of Bespin, which was one of the few worlds where the common thranta actually survived away from Alderaan. A steel-gray creature with dappled dorsal pattern and a creamy-white underbelly, the common thranta had triangular wings and a hevay, four-lobed tail for stability. Because of its origins and current location, this thranta is sometimes called the Alderaan thranta or the Bespon thranta. It was the smallest of the four major subspecies of thranta, capable of carrying just a rider and passenger.

Computer Combat Predictor
this starship weapons system, developed by Imperial engineers in the decade after the death of Admiral Thrawn, was designed to assist a cloaked starship. At its most advanced design, a cloaking device hid a starship from outside view, but also left the starship blind as to its surroundings. Thus, if it was discovered while cloaked, a starship was unable to safely maneuver, let alone anticipate an attack. The Predictor was developed to assist in predicting the attack of incoming starfighters, interfacing with the weapons systems to fire autoamtically in a set pattern. Supreme Commander Pellaeon tested the initial version of the Predictor ten years after Thrawn's death, and found the system still lacking any true accuracy.
Computer Mating Service
this Bith establishment (known as CMS) is responsible for the matching of the DNA of prosective mates, in order to generate a series of child-patterns (CPs) projecting the outcome of their union. This allows the Bith mates to create the best possible children for their continued existence.
any device built to gain access to a computer system and probe it for information. Blue Max was built as a computer probe, in the hopes that he could penetrate the Corporate Sector Authority's databanks on Orron III and retrieve information on the missing people.
any device used to covertly gain access to information stored in a mainframe computer. They are programmed to gain access to data and then continually modify themselves to avoid detection. The problem with this is that the spike degrades in efficiency as it works, until it has completely rewritten itself and it is completely useless. Each spike, therefore, can only be used once.
this Outer Rim planet was the site of one of Talon Karrde's many communications relay stations, during the years leading up to the Yuuzhan Vong invasion of the galaxy. It was located in the area of the Outer Rim known to smugglers as the Dead Zone.

this was the brand name of MicroThrust's advanced sensor scrambling device.
a section of the Empire which deals with communications. A Com-Scan center is located in each Star Destroyer and all large Imperial warships, to facilitate the sharing of information during battle situations.
this device was used to integrate and control the various communication and sensor systems of a given operation. A com-scan could be contained to a single vehicle, such as a ground-based military command speeder, or large enough to handle the systems of an entire planet. A com-scan unit was designed to continually monitor all its incoming system data, processing it and alerting organic personnel to and perceived danger or threat.
a communications jamming pack developed by MicroThrust. The Alliance's Infiltrator units often modified these devices to broadcast a general presence of trouble in the area, without giving away a concrete position.
Comtech Series IV
this compact speaker system, used in the formation of stormtrooper helmets for the Empire, was equipped with a three-phase filter system that produced clear sound.
a member of the rebel underground in Il Avali, on Druckenwell, Comus was proficient at creating false identification for other members. He created Ids for Tinian I'att and Twilit Hearth to use when they got Tinian off Druckenwell following the deaths of Tinian's grandparents.
the phrase used by the Ranat race to describe themselves, it translates to "The Conquerors."
a planet in the Teke Ro system, it has a lush, tropical environment. Due to its lack of axial tilt, the environment is pretty much the same over the entire surface. The atmosphere has a high concentration of ammonia, and any oxygen is found locked in the bedrock. Often, the only water found on the planet is collected and stored by the native plantlife. The planet's primary sentient lifeform, the Arcona, survive in small comunities which harvest the plant pods for their water. The Glove of Darth Vader describes Cona as having ammonia-filled jungles, which are home to star dragons.

an ancient projectile weapon that uses a small concussion charge to impel a small, arrow-like projectile at a target. The stock of the weapon is rifle-shaped, and is used like a rifle.
this was the generic term used to describe any explosive device which used intense, compressed sound waves to cause large amounts of damage.
a detonation device which, although not as powerful as a proton torpedo, is much faster. They employ an armor-piercing tip mounted on a compact energy pack. This tip allows the missile to penetrate a ship's hull, while also serving to ignite the weapon's energy pack. Upon striking a target, an atom smasher is activated near the energy pack, imploding the atoms and generating a huge amount of energy and heat. This first melts the target, then explodes it.

this man, a native of the planet Zoraster, was captured by a group of slavers led by krayn, shortly after the Battle of Naboo. He and a number of other slaves were pressed into guard duty aboard Krayn's starship, and were present when Krayn decided to ambush the Colicoid transports led by Anf Dec. When he learned that Obi-Wan Kenobi had infiltrated the slavers' ship, Condi and his fellow slaves threw down their weapons and agreed to help the Jedi. Unfortunately, Obi-Wan's ship was only a G-class shuttle borrowed from the Colicoids, just big enough himself and Anakin Skywalker. Condi agreed to ignore the Jedi's presence, and vowed to help his people escape.
this MC40a was part of the Alliance's fleet, during the Galactic Civil War.
this starfighter pilot served under Esege Tuketu as a K-wing bomber pilot. He was one of the many K-wing pilots who refused to attack Yevethan warships during the blockade of Doornik-319. He and the others believed that the pleas from Yevethan prisoners were, in fact, real. Unfortunately for the Republic, the pleas were perjured under the direction of Tal Fraan, and served to deter the Fifth Battle Group from destroying Yevethan ships.
