this model of swoop was produced by the Caelli-Merced Syndicate, and was specially designed for use in swoopchasing. It measured 2.44 meters in length, and was designed to have a ride height of no more than 3.05 meters, in accordance with the regulations of sanctioned swoopchasing.
this was a treet-legal version of the Caelli-Merced racing swoop.
this was the callsign of one of the clone trooper commanders who were dispatched to the planet Thustra, during the height of the Clone Wars. The battle group had been dispatched to establish a beachhead on Thustra and make a strong show of force, without engaging the native Sephi in any way. The Sephi, however, were not going to remain with the Old Republic under any circumstances, and attacked the Republic's forces as soon as they arrived. CR57 and his squadron were among the first to encounter heavy resistance, and also among the first to die in battle.
A hammerheaded, fast transport ship built by the Corellian Engineering Corporation, often used as blockade runners because of their speed and mobility. They have a modular interior, which can be modified for specific needs. They have a standard crew complement of 46-104, depending on the mission. Some military missions require a crew upwards of 165 men. These ships are 150 meters in length, and can make 60 MGLT at sublight speeds. They are regarded as extremely vulnerable, however, since the primary solar collector and stabilizer fin are located dorsally, and when disabled can cripple the ship's ability to maneuver. The CR90 boasts the following shipboard systems: * 6 Taim & Bak H9 Dual Turbolasers * 8 Faberstien-Lago 37s Emergency Escape Pods * 4 Faberstien Maximum Capacity Life Ships * 2 Pax Hustana Variable Array Sensor Units * Mason-Branger 7085 Ionization Reactor and Regulator * Corellian Engineering Corporation Subspace Hyperdrive * Corellian Chain Management NavCom Unit (26640 limited non-AI processing) * Phoah-Kingsmeyer 484-J4e Screen Control and Shield Projector (rated at 100 SBD) * Ferro-Magnesium Ceramic Hull (rated at 50 RU). During the Galactic Civil War, many Corellian Corvettes were modified to make up for the original design's weaknesses. The main solar collectors and stabilizer fins were incorporated into the hull, creating a long, pod-like shape instead of the angular shape of the original design. Most other shipboard components remained intact.

this was one of the many family names used by the Bothan people. It translated loosely to "droid crafter".
this was the name of a Krevaaki individul, distinguished in the history of the planet Krevas.
officially designated the LM-432, this multi-legged combat droid was used by the Separatists to maintain control of the planet Utapau during the height of the Clone Wars. Known as the Muckraker because of its ability to swiftly move about through swampy or marshy ground, the crab droid was developed in a variety of sizes to meet the needs of any terrain. Small, one-meter-tall crab droids were deployed for surveillance, while six-meter-tall versions were employed to clear pathways through underbrush and provide tracks for infantry. Each crab droid was based on the same basic design: a six-legged automaton that could move across virtually any terrain with ease. The forelegs of the crab droid were usually equipped with heavy-duty "claws" that could be driven into bedrock, providing stability and traction. Each of the remaining four legs were equipped with pincers that could be used to move small objects or provide additional gripping power. The body of the crab droid contained its central processor, as well as photoreceptors, sensory systems and targeting computers, and a communications system. It was even believed that a specialized version of the crab droid was created with Gungan bubble wort technology to provide shield generation. Unlike many of the other combat droids used by the Separatists, the crab droids were entirely designed and developed after the onset of the Clone Wars, with the combined resources of the Confederacy of Indepenent Systems working toward their production. With the end of the Clone Wars, all crab droids were issued orders to deactivate, as part of Darth Sidious' plan to consolidate military power and ensure the loyalty of his troops.

a legume found on Yavin 4.
this small surveillance device was created during the last decades of the Old Republic, and saw prominent use among the Hutt crimelords of the early years of the New Order. They were not intelligent enough to classify as droids, but their programming was nonetheless quite sophisticated for a device of its size. Each crab tracer was equipped with a tiny hypertransceiver, and could transmit its location to a central source via the HoloNet.
this less-than-reputable trader purchased the Lambarian Crab from Matas Havel. Believing himself to be a competent mechanic, Crab tore out the redundant systems in the YT-2400 transport and installed his own weapons systems. He also tore out the safety backups in order to feed more power to the heavy double laser cannon he installed. Unfortunately, Finious' skills as a mechanic were not the best, and on a run to Eriadu the life support systems failed. When the Lambarian Crab was discovered by Linx Mallicker and Fillio Androu, Crab was a dessicated corpse.
this unusual crustacean was one of the many bio-engineered forms of life created by the Yuuzhan Vong. The crab-harp, as its name suggested, was bred for the sound it made as it moved its many legs together. Crab-harps were often set loose during ceremonies, to provide a form of background music.
this Imperial Leiutenant was placed in command of the detachment that was charged with the mission of bringing the leadership of the Osaji Syndicate in for questioning, during the height of the Galactic Civil War. Leiutenant Crace followed the trail of a group of freelance mercenaries who managed to assassinate Osaji Varanes and Osaji Uhares before locating Osaji Hux on Muskree. Crace and his team arrived just as Osaji Hux was going to kill the mercenaries, and a firefight broke out. In the dust and debris, Crace lost sight of Osaji Hux. The mercenaries who had been tracking her were eventually set free after questioning, and Crace began his search again.
located just within the boundaries of the Corporate Sector, this five-planet system is home to the Cracian Thumper.
a creature used for transportation on any number of worlds, the Thumper originated in the Craci System. The name "thumper" was given to the beast because it looks like it should thump along when it runs. However, the Thumper is one of the quietest animals known, and makes virtually no noise when it moves. In addition to making good mounts, the Thumper is also a valuable companion in a fight, using its clawed forearms and feet, as well as its thick tail, to combat enemies.
this was the designation of one of the Empire's largest police forces, established during the months following the Battle of Yavin to seek out and eliminate any rebellious cells or supporters of the Alliance.
Crackdown Dark Trooper
this was a form of Imperial combat droid developed from the original Stage 1 Dark Trooper, and put to use as part of the Empire's Crackdown unit of troops.
an escape maneuver developed by Pash Cracken, the Cracken Twist was more a form of subterfuge than an actual maneuver. Before the Twist could be accomplished, a set of hyperspace calculations was generated for transmission as the flight path for the ships. When executed properly, the team of escort ships maneuvered into a recalculated flight path that was altered based on the countdown to the start of the maneuver. If the maneuver was to start on the count of 2, the correct flight plan was altered by adding 2 to the second number of each coordinate in the original flight plan. Then, if an enemy intercepted the transmission of the coordinates, they would jump into hyperspace along a route that was visually similar to the escape route, but they would end up light-years away from the actual destination. The receiver of the altered coordinates simply subtracted 2 from the second numbers in the Cracken Twist coordinates, thereby ensuring an accurate depiction of the escape route.
Airen Cracken was born on Contruum some fifty years before the Battle of Yavin. Note that The Unifying Force indicates that Airen Cracken was seventy-five during the final stages of the Yuuzhan Vong invasion of the galaxy. He grew up his parent's farm, and was particulary adept at modifying and fixing machinery. He later opened a mechanic's shop, and repaired everything from landspeeders to holoprojectors. He married a Corellian woman namde Josta, and they had two children before the Empire took control of Contruum. Airen and a group of supporters took to the hills, in an effort to thwart the Imperial forces at every turn. Josta set up safehouses, while "Cracken's Crew" crippled stardocks, sabotaged mining operations, and destroyed supply depots. As the Imperial commander began spending more and more time searching for specific saboteurs, the natives of Contruum developed their own militia. A hard-fought war was begun, and in the end, the Imperial Moff pulled out rather than waste more effort trying to subdue Contruum. Cracken recognized that the Empire was not as kind to other worlds in the galaxy, and decided to leave Josta and Contruum to fight for the Alliance. He provided valuable input during the early years of the Alliance, particularly in the areas of special forces operations. His knack for modifying devices to perform auxiliary tasks made him an invaluable teacher, and his bravery in the face of Imperial foes twice earned him the Nebula award. Cracken continued to serve the cause following the Battle of Endor, and became a respected statesman and military advisor for the New Republic. He was responsible for the New Republic's position when the Rogue Squadron pilots resigned their commissions, and also negotiated the transfer of the Virulence to Booster Terrik. When the Battle of Thyferra had been decided, Cracken informed Wedge Antilles that the Rogues' resignations were never actually processed, and they could have them back if the so desired. After they trained the first group of the Thyferran Aerospace Defense Force, they returned to the New Republic and took up the mantle of Rogue Squadron again.

this young woman was Airen Cracken's daughter. She had just started school about a year before the Battle of Hoth.
this Corellian woman ended up on the planet Contruum, where she met and eventually married Airen Cracken. She had his emotional fire, and when the Empire invaded the planet, she worked to establish safehouses for children and elderly natives threatened by Imperial forces.
a highly-proficient starfighter in the Republic, Pash was the son of Airen Cracken. He flew A-Wings early in his career, and quickly moved up the ranks to become a squadron commander. However, the people serving under him felt that his seeming invulnerablity and ability to survive any situation made them equally invulnerable. Pash's squadron soon started taking losses, and was placed under Varth's unit. Pash used this modification to apply for Rogue Squadron to help save good pilots. He served Wedge Antilles when the Rogues infiltrated Coruscant, as a prelude to the New Republic taking the planet back from the remnants of the Empire. He later returned to Varth's command, eventually serving at Generis just before the battles against Grand Admiral Thrawn. Pash was the namesake of the Cracken Twist. Years later, when the Yuuzhan Vong invaded the galaxy, Pash had risen through the ranks and attained the rank of Commander, and was assigned to command the Memory of Ithor during the final stages of the invasion. During Operation Trinity, however, the Memory of Ithor took considerable damage when the fleet was cut off from its reinforcements. Unable to control the resulting explosions, Cracken ordered a full evacuation. As the escape pods were jettisoned, the Memory of Ithor exploded, taking with it those who were still onboard. It was believed that Pash died in the explosion. Luckily, Pash and most of his crew were able to reach lifepods in time and escape the blast, only to be captured by the Yuuzhan Vong. They were taken to the prison camps on Selvaris, and maintained until they could be sacrificed. However, the heroic efforts of Thorsh and three Biths managed to put Selvaris' location into the hands of the New Republic military, which launched a rescue mission to recover the prisoners. Cracken, Page, and a handful of others managed to escape aboard the Millennium Falcon to Caluula Station, where they were once again beset by the Yuuzhan Vong. When Han Solo was ready to return to Calamari, Cracken and several other soldiers decided to remain behind, to help defend Calulla as best they could. However, Caluula was quickly overrun and Cracken once again found himself a captive, and was transported to Coruscant to be sacrificed. His luck continued to hold, however, as a group of Shamed Ones rescued many of the sacrificial victims during their disruption of Shimrra's ceremony. Cracken was among them, and he helped the Shamed Ones form a tighter resistance. When the Galactic Alliance finally attacked Coruscant, Cracken and his Yuuzhan Vong guerrillas met up with Judder Page and his infiltration team, thanks to the efforts of Baljos Arnjak.

this is the nickname used by those Contruum rebels who fought alongside Airen Cracken, following the Imperial occupation of the planet. They constantly wreaked havoc with Imperial supply depots and mining operations, and sabotaged stardocks and landing bays. They often left grafitti behind which declared "Cracken's Crew Says Hello."
Cracken's Field Guide
a manual of starship construction, maintenance, and modifications used by the Alliance.
Cracken's Flight Group
the name given to the A-Wing pilots who served under Pash Cracken before he joined Rogue Squadron. The original Group was comprised of the pilots that defected form the Imperial Academy with Pash. During their escape, the Group managed to destroy the Victory-class Star Destroyer Exsanguinator, making them the stuff of rumors and stories. Pash's ability to survive nearly any engagement became legendary, and the pilots serving under him believed themselves equally invulnerable. This served only to reduce their sharpness, and many pilots started getting careless and killed. The Group was assimilated into Varth's command, and Pash joined the Rogues.

Cradle of the Galaxy
amassed and produced by the Allied Tion Historical Society, this collection of pre-Republic era artifacts and documents was shown across the Core Worlds during the year leading up to the Clone Wars. Funded by Republic Siener Systems, the House of Tion, and the House of Cron, the museum displays focused on the civiliation of the galaxy during the era of Xim the Despot, and contained some of the best-presevered examples of early hyperspace technology found in the galaxy. The touring museum show as cut short by the onset of the Clone Wars.
this Cathar Jedi was apprenticed to Vodo Siosk-Baas, along with his lover, Sylvar. He idolized Exar Kun, seeing Kun as a strong source of power and skill. When Exar Kun rose to power as a Dark Lord of the Sith, he took Crado as a possessed apprentice when the Sith holocron exploded and sent shards of Dark Side energy into Crado. Under the spell of the ancient Sith, Crado accompanied Oss Willum to Ambria to kill Master Thon. In a vicious battle with Nomi Sunrider, Thon, and his lover Sylvar, Crado and Oss Willum tried to use the Dark Side creatures of Lake Natth to do their bidding, but were defeated. Crado nearly killed Sylvar because of the Dark Side influence, then fled to escape them while Oss Willum was captured. Crado returned to Exar Kun, then accompanied Aleema to the Cron Cluster, where they tried to use an ancient Sith weapon to destroy the arriving Old Republic fleet. Aleema succeeded in decimating the fleet, but could not control the weapon. In the end, she caused ten stars in the Cron Cluster to explode, killing herself and Crado.
this ancient Trandoshan was the leader of the Bounty Hunters Guild during the reign of Emperor Palpatine. Long beyond his prime physical condition and extremely paranoid, Cradossk was nonetheless an imposing figure, and his wily intelligence allowed him to maintain control of Guild and its scheming members. Like his father before him, Cradossk had emerged from his egg and consumed his siblings, ensuring his own survival. His own spawn, Bossk, had done no less, and Cradossk was sure that the younger reptile would treacherously try to kill him. Thus, he continually worked the members of the Guild into loose, hidden alliances to eliminate Bossk. These plans invariably failed, and Bossk remained a thorn in his father's side. When Boba Fett, acting in concert with Kud'ar Mub'at, asked to join the Guild, Cradossk saw it as a way to bring prestige to the Guild and to reign in one of its primary opponents. Cradossk failed to comprehend Fett's plans until it was too late. By then, infighting among the Guild's older members and its younger members was at a head. Bossk took control fhte younger, more hot-headed faction and managed to confront his father alone. In a great struggle, Bossk managed to kill and eat his father, thereby ensuring his control of the remains of the Guild.
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 "tears the throats of his prey".

this was the native language of the Cragmoloid people.
this was a race of immense, elephantine humanoids native to the planet Ankus. The Cragmoloids were an inherently clan-oriented people, proud of themselves and their families. Cragmoloids have a strong sense of honor and loyalty, and are quick to anger when confronted with subterfuge or trickery. However, despite their size, most Cragmoloids viewed violence as distasteful.

this bounty hunter was wanted by the New Republic for the murder of personnel and the destruction of property. No on knew his real name or true identity, for he alway wore a full-body suit of armor and a blast helmet. Limited bioscan data indicated that Cragus 12 had a number of cybernetic protheses, including a Repli-Limb arm and Neuro-Saav Cardio-Muscular and Hifold Sensory packages.
located in the Unknown Regions, this planet was the homeworld of the Croke race.
this bounty hunter worked for Moff Bandor, stalking the Game Chambers of Questal. Cralliard's race was unknown, but he was a well-built, hairless humanoid who dressed in furs and skins. An excellent tracker, Cralliard stalked the prisoners of the chambers and shot at them from places of cover. He would then move to the next cover position, drawing the prisoners into a futile chase while exhausting and disorienting them.
this was an Imperial unit of volume.
this little-known planet was the primary world in the Cranan System.
this member of the Norat Sovereignity was captured during the Yevethan Purge and forced to record a message for the New Republic by Tal Fraan. The message was a plea to the ships of the Fifth Battle Group to halt their attack on Yevethan starships during the blockade of Doornik-319. Fraan correctly surmised that Republic pilots would break off their attack if they were made to believe prisoners were alive on the Yevethan ships. However, there were no prisoners, and the Yevethans decimated the Fifth Battle Group during their successful resistance of the blockade.
this plant's roots are a delicacy to the Rodians, especially when they are deeply oiled.
this popular holovid star married her regular co-star, Jobal Rapier, more than two years before the onset of the Clone Wars. They split up just two and a half years later. Jobal claimed that he had married Yari because she was the perfect accent to his wardrobe and his image, although Yari claimed that Jobal was jealous of the fact that she made more credits than he did. She believed that they would get back together eventually.
this man was one of Zothip's pirates. He was taken out by Karoly D'ulin on Bastion, while they were guarding Moff Disra's offices.
this alien race was native to the planet Cartao. It was the Cranscoc who controlled the unusual technology that made Spaarti Creations a unique and profitable business, and investigation revealed that the colony on Cartao was the only place the Cranscoc could live. In general, the Cranscoc bred very slowly, and only a handful of them evolved to become twillers, those individuals who could manipulate the fluid technology that was utilzied by Spaarti Creations. The average Cranscoc was an insectile being whose body was covered by a chitinous shell, which moved about on long, multi-jointed legs. The Cranscoc's shell was translucent, and revealed the coloration of the hide beneath it. Normally, the color of the hide reflected an individual's mood. An agitated or scared individual displayed rapid color changes, as a kind of warning to any beings around them. Also, a kind of species-specific langauge was developed using patterns of colors, allowing the Cranscoc to communicate without being interpreted.
Crash and Bash
this was deal-slang for any act of thievery which involved the destruction of non-essential property, to make the act appear to be a random act of piracy.
this was one of the many ways in which a starship's pilot was protected during a crash. Instead of using a foam to cushion the pilot, some systems deployed balloons to protect the pilot from hitting the control board. This also allowed the pilot to get free of a downed ship easier, and required no special clean-up after the crash.
Crash n' Burn
this was a form of recreationals spice that was created during the height of the New Order. It was popular among smugglers.
this was spacer slang for any ground-based vehicle that came to the aid of a downed starship, when it crash-landed on a planet's surface.
this was the Basic translation of the Colony's term Ub Ruur. It described the crashlanding of the starship Tachyon Flier on the planet Yoggoy in the Unknown Regions, and the Colony's discovery of Raynar Thul's still-living body inside. Thul was rescued by the Yoggoy and given a chance to recuperate, and eventually became the first true Joiner. The wreckage of the Tachyon Flier was preserved by the Lizil hive for posterity. Unknown to much of the Colony, Lomi Plo and Welk also survived the crash, and managed to create their own Dark Side hive of insectoids. The site of The Crash became something of a sacred place to the Colony's hives, since the event marked the beginning of their expansion.
this cantina, found in the city of Vlarnya on Khuiumin 4, was the primary hangout of the Khuiumin Survivors. In keeping with its name, the Crash was decorated with bits and pieces of starfighters shot down by the Survivors, or pieces of crashed starships the Survivors escaped from.
developed to protect the underground maintenance facilities of the planet Coruscant, crash-corners were tight-angle turns placed within a passageway. The walls of a crash-corner were heavily armored and supported by thick duracrete, allowing them to absorb heavy impacts without breaking. The idea is that any high-speed penetration run into a maintenance corridor - for sabotage or terrorist purposes - would result in heavy damage to the vehicle, effectively ending the attempt to reach the inner areas of the facility.
this protective restraint material is used in starfighers and other personal ships. When a ship is forced to crash-land, crash-foam is expelled in the event that the ejection seat is not present or fails. The foam fills the cabin, completely surrounding the pilot. It insulates the pilot from the shock of the crash, but can be quickly removed once the pilot is on solid ground.
this small crustacoid creature was native to the planet Pria, and served as one of the primary food sources fro the Priapulin. The crast and the Priapulin have a unique relationship, in that the digestion of a crast triggers reproduction in the crast. Although the digestion eventually kills the crast, the eggs of the crast are actually nurtured within the Priapulin's digestive juices. Once the young crasti reached maturity, they were regurgitated by the Priapulin to live out their lives. In another strange twist, the Priapulin have evolved to only consume those crast which bear eggs.
this Priapulin word, which translated loosely into Basic as "food kin", was used to describe small, immature crast. The crast and the Priapulin existed in a unique relationship, in which egg-bearing crast were consumed by the Priapulin, but the eggs were actually nurtured in the digestive juices of the Priapulin's stomach. When the eggs hatched, the Priapulin regurgitated the young crast.
this was New Republic starfighter pilot slang for any form of landing craft.
the nicest place to stay on Crseih Station, it was where Han, Luke, and C-3PO stayed until they were forced out by the contingency of Imperial supporters who came to commit themselves to Hethrir's Empire Reborn.

this rundown cantina was located in Thriller's Row, on the planet Cularin, during the last years of the Old Republic.
an insectile race of being with large eyes. They consume their food raw, and raise a species of small mammal as a staple for their diet.
a Bakuran carnivore, the cratsch was a ferret-like creature which preyed on the birds that lived in the namana groves. The cratsch had a prehensile tail, which it used to hang in the trees and wait for birds to alight nearby. When cornered on the ground, a cratsch would fight to the death, making it difficult to capture a live specimen.

the Dictator-Forever of the Targonnian people, he was eventually overthrown with the help of R2-D2 and C-3PO. He ruled from a palace hidden behind a force-field, and instituted a 99% tax rate on his citizens. He also forced children to start working at the age of 6. He captured the droids in an effort to help unlock the secrets of savorium. The Targonnian Shay tried to overthrow him, but failed. Shay did, however, rescue the droids, who later assisted Zorneth in successfully deposing Craw.
this espionage and infiltration droid was developed by the Confederacy of Independent Systems, from a base on the planet Dagro, during the first year of the Clone Wars. The mission profile of the crawl-carrier was to reach an otherwise secure location - one that couldn't be reached by organic beings or by larger droids - and either destroy it or render it useless. These squat, rectangular droids moved about on eight segmented legs, and could be modified for a variety of uses. One version of the crawl-carrier was known as an acid droid, and carried a payload of highly-caustic, green acid. Others could be adapted to carry anti-personnel explosives, electrical disruptors, or even other droids like shockers. In this way, the crawl-carrier was the perfect terrorism weapon, allowing Separatist forces to disrupt the normal, day-to-day services of enemy emplacements. The primary development facility for crawl-carriers was hidden on the planet Dagro, until it was destroyed by Obi-Wan Kenobi and Anakin Skywalker, about a year after the Battle of Geonosis.
lumbering, tread-driven transport vehicles used on the Crseih station asteroids. They are heavily shielded from the system's intense X-radiation.

this Imperial Moff inherited the Trans-Nebular Sector, and the planet Goroth Prime, during the early years of the New Order. He discovered references to the hyperbaride concentrations on Goroth Prime while reviewing the documents of his predecessor, and decided to investigate for himself. When the Captain of the Nastion reported that the planet was alive, Cray began setting up plans to mine the planet for the Empire.
this name was common among the Feeorin race.

an Imperial TIE fighter pilot from Bettok, Creb served on the Chimaera from his first assignment. He fought in the Battle of Endor, and worked with the Black Wing Squadron under Grand Admiral Thrawn.
this speciallized Yuuzhan Vong clustership was designed to care for a young yammosk, until it was fully grown and ready for deployment. The Vong used the life-energies of prisoners captured on Gyndine to nurture the yammosk aboard the Creche'. The ship was commanded by Chine-kal during this time. Many of the captives who were forced to tend the yammosk died after the young creature's mental contact. After Chine-kal discovered Wurth Skidder's true nature, he traveled to Kalarba to deliver the Jedi to Tsavong Lah. However, before they could reach the Yuuzhan Vong commander, the Creche' was attacked by Kyp's Dozen. Chine-kal fled to Fondor, hoping to get the damaged ship to the main Yuuzhan Vong fleet in time to save the young yammosk. However, the ship barely survived to Fondor, where it was attacked again by New Republic forces. The Creche' was unable to withstand the assault, which inlcuded Kyp Durron's execution of the yammosk, and the ship tore itself apart. When the blast from Centerpoint Station ripped through the Fondor System, the Creche' was incinerated.

Credit Case Surprise
resembling a standard credit case, this device was produced by Synnt-ovations as a personal protection device. When a being was attacked by thieves intent on stealing credits, the victim could activate the case's power supply, turning on an intense arc-light hidden inside the case. The blinding flash of light gave the victim a chance to escape.
this small memory device was developed to track a being's monetary value. Each chip was built with specialized memory algorithms to prevent tampering, and could be used to add or subtract credits from a being's account.
this was the basis for all monetary transactions in the galaxy, during the height of the New Order. It defined a standard denomination around which all races and planets could easily interact in business and pleasure.
