When a site appeared to be worth mining, the Spelunker drilled a core sample, then placed an explosive charge in the hole for preliminary blasting, opeing the hole for larger mining equipment. Many of the Spelunker droids found in use before the Clone Wars were used by the Commerce Guild to mine inhospitable worlds. Later, the Spelunker served as the basis for the so-called chameleon droid used by the Confederacy of Independent Systems.

this was the Self-Propelled Heavy Artillery-Turbolaser vehicle designed by Rothana Heavy Engineering, first used by the Old Republic to support the clone troopers of the Army of the Republic in the Battle of Geonosis. Theywere used to deploy up to twenty troopers in an effort to augment the forces of the Jedi Knights in fighting against Count Dooku's droid armies. Each thirty-four-meter-long SPHA-T stood just over twenty meters tall, had modular weapons emplacements, and could be armed in response to its target. The basic weaponry consisting of a heavy turbolaser cannon and twelve anti-personnel blaster cannons which protected all sides of the vehicle. Instead of using a turret to move the turbolaser cannon into positon, the SPHA-T had twelve articulated legs that quickly manevuered its bulky form into the correct position. The complex system of legs could also moved the vehicle at speeds near 35 kilometers per hour. The turbolaser cannon could be replaced with a heavy ion cannon or concussion missile launcher, while the smaller blasters could also be changed out for anti-vehicle laser cannons or grenade launchers. Each SPHA-T required a crew of fifteen troopers to operate, which included ten gunners. Much of the vehicle's interior was given over to the powerful reactor cores which powered the weapons systems. The reactor core caused a good deal of trouble in those battles where the SPHA-T's hull was breached, since the core exploded in a massive fireball that caused huge amounts of collateral damage, often to friendly troops.

this sport gained popularity during the last years of the New Order. Played in a low-gravity arena between two players, Spheroids involved the throwing of spheres into a pre-arranged goal setup. Each player had a command sphere and several throwing spheres. Designed to mimic the workings of the bodies in a solar system, Spheriods required that each player deploy their basic spheres into the arena, then throw their command sphere into the resulting configuration. The more of the opponent's basic spheres that were placed into a goal, the more points a player received. Each player alternated turns, with play changing sides whenever a goal was missed. During the height of the Galactic Civil War, black holes and other phenomena were introduced into the game, giving a more random configuration.

Spice Mines of Kessel
this was the generic term used to describe the spice-mining operations which were established on the planet Kessel. Over the decades, many beings and agencies have claimed ownership of the mines, and during the entire reign of Emperor Palpatine the mines were worked by slave labor. Working in the mines was dangerous, since it had to be done in complete darkness in order to ensure good quality spice harvests. This, coupled with the harsh living conditions and dangerous creatures found in the mines, made being sent to the Spice Mines of Kessel one of the worst punishments a being could receive.
a condition experienced by many Sevari who leave their native world of Sevarcos. The atmosphere of Sevarcos is laden with spice particles, and the Sevari have become used to it over time.

this highly-modified YT-1300 light freighter was owned and operated by the smuggler Jarril. He had widened the forward mandibles to accept a full-sized A-Wing fighter. The A-Wing could be remotely-operated from the main ship, and was designed to be an escape ship. Jarril could dump the bulking YT-1300 and flee in the swift A-Wing if captured by the authorities. However, this is not the case, as Jarril once proved. Given the remote operability of the A-Wing, Jarril can remain behind in the freighter, piloting the A-Wing on an escape vector while remaining with his cargo. The A-Wing can later be recovered, if possible. The ship was hijacked by agents of the failed Jedi Dolph, and Jarril was killed. A series of messages implicating Han Solo in the bombing of the New Republic's Senate Assembly Chamber were left in the Spicy Lady's memory banks, and the ship was left adrift. It was discovered by Lando Calrissian, who towed it to Kessel to search through it. The A-Wing had been stolen, and Jarril had been shot in the head, but otherwise the ship was intact.
this was one of the may bounty hunters who tried to capture Quinlan Vos, during the Jedi Purge initiated by Emperor Palpatine.

this species of sounder was native to the oceans of Kamino, although it was believed that they were created from the genetic material of a Rodian b'tan flyer. These sounders could grow to sizes of two meters in length or more, and were named for the sharp spines that studded their fins and tails. The spike-finned sounder was a predator by definition, but small groups were most often seen following the larger saberjowl, scooping up the scraps left behind by the saberjowl's feeding. Like most other sounders, the spike-finned sounder was a strong swimmer, and could leap some five meters out of the water when in pursuit of prey.
this mentally-disabled member of the Chiss race was one of Jabba the Hutt's swoop gangmembers. Spiker was in the group the Jabba - at Prince Xizor's request - sent after Luke Skywalker on Tatooine. Spiker was recognizable by his long, thin, spike-covered helmet. He also wears purple, spike-covered leather armor that matches his helmet. Spiker was killed while trying to steal Han Solo's frozen form from Boba Fett, when the bounty hunter arrived on Tatooine. A firefight ensued, and Spiker was shot down. Fett, however, was unharmed, for he had placed Zuckuss in Mandalorian armor and sent the Gand out in his place, to draw off an ambush. Spiker was later revived and restored by the B'omarr monks of Jabba's palace, and he met up with the similarly reanimated Big Gizz. They attempted to recover a tape which contained information on the whereabouts of Jabba's hidden escape ship, the Spirit of Jabba, which itself was filled with weapons and supplies. They thought they could become pirates and take control of their own destinies. However, they were forced to crash-land the ship outside of Mos Eisley in order to escape Gorga the Hutt's minions. Spiker and Gizz survived, and made their way back to civilization.

They planned to use a gravity-well projector to pull the ship out of hyperspace, but they had to steal the projector from the Ugors. Spilfer is easily distinguishable by the odd assortrment of trinkets and baubles he has attached to his clothing. Among them is a ceremonial Fizz-Pop can, which identifies him as a Squib diplomat.

the son of an Old Republic Senator, Mako never wanted to rush things. He led an aimless life that nearly got on track after the Clone Wars. He knew that he had the talent to make it in the Academy, but he put off applying until he had had enough fun on Corellia. He met Han Solo at the Academy (despite the fact that Solo was ten years younger), and the two became known as pranksters. Mako once tried to blast the seal of the Academy off its mascot moon, but only succeeded in destroying the entire planetoid. He was expelled immediately, and his family cut him off from any inheritance. He used his contacts from the Academy to set himself up as a smuggler, and encountered Solo again after Solo's expulsion from the Academy. They worked for awhile out of Nar Shaddaa, until Han decided to seek his fortune in the galaxy. Mako, meanwhile, had been plying the smuggling lanes of the Ottega System. He wound up on the wrong side of a battle with the Na-Quoit bandits, and was permanently crippled in the battle. He returned to Nar Shaddaa, where he took on work as a traffic controller. When Solo returned, Mako tried to make a quick credit and turned Solo in to Boba Fett, but Solo escaped. When Zasm Katth and Baddon Fass arrived at the spaceport looking for the Millennium Falcon, Spince was forced to work for them. He later spotted the Falcon trying to escape the spaceport and alerted the crew of the Star Destroyer Invincible to their presence. Han did not appreciate the way Spince turned on him, and tried to evade the Invincible's tractor beam by hiding behind the spaceport control tower. The Star Destroyer's tractor beam locked onto the tower, instead of Han's ship, and ripped it from the spaceport. Mako Spince was killed when the disabled Star Destroyed crashed into the surface of Nar Shaddaa and exploded.

an activity on Vorzyd 5.
this aging freighter was owned by Sheeka Tull during the last years of the Old Republic. She used the ship primarily as a suborbital transport, moving cargoes across the surface of Ord Cestus. It was help together with anything Sheeka could obtain, but was lovingly maintained and more than spaceworthy. Because the ship made regular runs into all of Ord Cestus' major cities, the Spindragon was unarmed, so as not to pose any threat to the Five Families.
