this is the term used to describe those Shashay who act not only as musical performers, but as starship navigators. The term was first created when a Shashay starship was forced to land on Kashyyyk after experiencing a malfunction. The Wookiees helped the Shashay crew repair their ship, but the only thing the Shashay had to offer as repayment was an evening of song. In an alternate usage, Shashay navigators are called space singers. The song of the Shashay is a complicated combination of trills and riffs, and the mental acumen required to memorize and perform the song lent itself to the ability to manipulate navigational coordinates. The Alliance employed the Shashay as navigators during the Galactic Civil War.

a pink, snake-like creature capable of living in the vacuum of space, space slugs sustain themselves by digesting the minerals in asteroids. Much of the slug's body is smooth and pliable, but the rearmost portion of the slug is covered with root-like tendrils that burrow into the rock of the asteroid and serve as the primary method of obtaining nutrients. It is known that they are a silicon-based organism, much like the mynock. Space slugs, also like mynocks, reproduce via fission into two new organisms. Many scientists claim that space slugs eat mynocks for sustenance, although larger slugs have been found with colonies of mynocks living inside them. The average space slugs attains a length of around 100 meters living in the weightlessness of hard vacuum. For this reason, there have been plenty of verified reports of huge slugs reaching lengths of 900 meters. Space slug flesh, being inorganic, has many technological uses. Their skin is also used, in a ground-up form, as a commercial abrasive. It was rumored, during the last decades of the Old Republic, that miners and smugglers in the asteroid belt of the Cularin System actually trained space slugs to act as guardians of their bases. Other rumors claim that certain slugs were tame enough to allow smugglers to land their ships in their mouths to escape capture. Although these rumors were never substantiated, many starship captains went out of their way to avoid space slugs in the Cularin System.
