this planet is the homeworld of the Adarian race. It is covered with volcanic mountains, most of which are perpetually covered with snow. Its year lasts 409 standard days.
an alien race native to the planet Adari, the Adarians are humanoids with unusual cranial structures. Their skulls are elongated and tall, and have a large hole which goes completely through it. They have no ears or noses, and their mouth is ringed with sharp, bony ridges instead of lips. The Adarians make up for the lack of ears with a covering of fine hairs along their skulls that pick up the vibration of sound waves. A series of glands near the skin's surface allows them to smell. Their throats can be distended and filled with air, and the resulting "long call" can be useful as a communication method or a kind of defensive action. The Adarians have a rigid caste system which dominates their society, and they have evolved an advanced technology based on the use of super-cooled carbon-ice computers. They were able to remain neutral during the Galactic Civil War by signing a non-agression treaty with the Empire, providing the Empire with unlimited raw materials in return for their neutrality.
this planet, located in the Minos Cluster, functioned as the Cluster's entertainment destination. By itself, Adarlon is a rugged, mountainous world originally settled by a group of Old Republic altruists - many from Alderaan - for its beauty rather than its resources. They were particularly well-funded, and their society grew into one of entertainment rather than survival. It was on Adarlon that the holographic medium was developed as an entertainment staple, and music from the planet is also highly sophisticated. Its primary industry was centered around tourism, and its temperate climate was well-suited to the various resorts and parks which operated there. Adarlon has a day which lasts 21 standard hours, and a year which lasts 381 local days. Adarlon was also the home to one of the most famous opera companies in the galaxy, and the famous opera singer Neile Janna was a native of Adarloon.
this ancient Sith King was the gatekeeper of the Sith holocron used by the leader of Onderon, some 4,000 years before the Battle of Yavin. Adas was a huge man who had used the power of the Dark Side of the Force to conquer his homeworld some 24,000 years before the Great Sith War. Sith scholars of the period believed that Adas created the holocron more as a testament to his achievements than as a teaching device.

this star was one of the stars that formed the center of the Adega System, which contained the planet Ossus.
similar in many respects to Ilum crystals, these minerals emitted powerful bursts of light when induced by resonant frequencies. This trait made them the most common crystals used to construct lightsabers by the ancient Jedi Knights. The most common Adegan crystal was kathracite, but it was also the least powerful of the Adegan varieties and tended to explode under stress. This meant that it was only used in low-power training lightsabers. Interestingly, as the crystal forms became less common, they also became more powerful. After kathracite, there were relacite, danite, mephite, and pontite crystal forms, each more powerful than the previous. Unlike Ilum crystals, which produced only blue and green lightsaber blades, Adegan crystals created a wide range of blade colors, including purple, gold, and pearlescent. Synthetic versions of the various Adegan crystals were eventually produced, but were less powerful than their natural counterparts.
this vicious creature was native to the Adega System.

Kella Rand was the first to discover Aden's body and question Darme. Circumstantial evidence in the form of a remote detonation device found on Aden's body led many to believe he was responsible for Barayel's death, but he was later absolved of any crime when Imperial forces were discovered to be behind Barayel's murder.

this parasite lived on the fatty deposits of its host, causing tremendous weight loss in just a matter of hours. Experimentation in controlled reduction of bodily weight, via the injection of adipose lice, has been discussed and experimented with by many doctors and scientists. A selective toxin was injected to halt the spread of the lice. However, the adipose lice do not care which fatty tissues it attacks, and it consumes all fat it encounters. The treatment, which is extremely expensive, often causes more harm than good.

this was one of two Star Destroyers in the navy of the Galactic Alliance that survived the Yuuzhan Vong invasion of the galaxy with their gravity-well generators intact. It was also the flagship of the Fifth Fleet, and was commanded by Admiral Nek Bwua'tu, during the years following the defeat of the Yuuzhan Vong. Thus, it was paired with the other gravity-projecting vessel, the Mon Mothma, in the blockade of the Utegetu Nebula about a year after the Qoribu Crisis, in an effort to prevent the Gorog hive from expanding beyond the nebula's boundaries. Although the fleet was well-prepared, the sudden suicide attack by UnuThul's frigate left the crew of the Admiral Ackbar at their mercy. Admiral Bwua'tu was forced to call for the ship to be abandoned, and the Killiks made off with the vessel. However, the blockade was successful in that it kept the Gorog nest ship and ten others within the Utegetu Nebula.

The average Adnerem tended to be asocial and introverted, but they were often found in small groups. A well-known phrase described the Adnerem this way: "Two Adnerem are a party, four a dinner, and six a funeral."

this model of droid was often used on military bases as an armory administrator, providing specialized weaponsry and equipment repair. Designed and manufactured by Arakyd, the AD series was targetted for sale to the Empire as an armory unit, programmed to handle weapons maintenance more efficiently that humans. However, the Empire deemed that the benefits of the AD-series droid was marginal (estimates of less than 0.001% gains in efficiency have been documented), and declined to purchase the AD. Arakyd had assumed that the Empire would purchase them and mass-produced the AD-series, and found themselves with a huge inventory of unsold droids. Eventually, Arakyd managed to unload the AD-series to local law enforcement agencies and independent mercenaries.

this planet, a terrestrial world draped in a poisonous atmosphere, was the second planet in the Aduba System.
Aduba-3 was the third planet in the Aduba System, located in the Outer Rim. It was orbited by a single moon, and was originally settled as an agricultural world. Despite its arid appearance, Aduba-3's plains were fed by arterial rivers that snaked through the planet's crust. However, after it was rumored to have rich and widely-distributed lodes of chromium, Aduba-3 experienced a boom in population that rendered much of its landscape a dusty wasteland. These rumors turned out to be false, the product of several greedy schemers who seeded existing mines with chromium deposits. Because of this deceipt - which many later attributed to the Tenloss Syndicate - many spacers chose to avoid the planet altogether, as a reminder of its troublesome past. It orbited a fourth-class yellow sun, and was one of many planets throughout the galaxy with a native population of banthas. Han Solo, Jaxxon, and a group of adventurers liberated a village on this planet in the months following the Battle of Yavin. The village was being held by Serji-X Arrogantus.

this remote world, located on the inner edge of Wild Space, was colonized some 10,000 years before the Battle of Yavin by separatists who had rebelled against the Old Republic. They had been defeated by the Republic's forces, and given the option of death or resettlement. They chose to be resettled, opting to take their chances on a remote planet rather than be executed. The separatists evolved outside the mainstream of galactic growth for millennia, until they were contacted by the New Republic some 8 years after the Battle of Endor. The human natives of the planet, who call themselves the Adumari, developed a complex social structure which was based on personal honor and triumph over one's enemies. The primary industries of the planet were based on the production of war materiel, and they were skilled in the manufacture of proton torpedoes. They lacked a world government when a New Republic mapping ship accidentally found the planet and first contacted them, but the Adumari quickly learned that the Republic was not the only power in the galaxy. The perator of Cartann, Pekaelic ke Teldan, offered both the remnants of the Empire and the New Republic the chance to prove themselves and earn the alliance of Adumar in what basically became a popularity contest between Wedge Antilles and Turr Phennir. The perator himself was eventually ousted in favor of his son, who was more receptive to creating a democratic world government, where his father had wanted a government controlled by Cartann leaders. In the end, Adumar welcomed the New Republic and became a member world. Adumar has two moons.

this was the starship traffic control center of the planet Adumar.
Adumar: Five Years of Union
written and produced by Hallis Saper, this award-winning documentary portrayed the events of Operation Joystick and the struggle to bring the planet Adumar into the membership of the New Republic.
this was the name used by the human inhabitants of the planet Adumar. The descendants of a group of people who rebelled against the Old Republic and were defeated some 10,000 years before the Battle of Yavin, the Adumari continued to be a rebellious society even after they settled the planet. Their records indicated that there had been at least two huge wars which reduced the people to barbarism, but their tenacious nature had brought them back each time. They had a complex social structure which was based on personal honor and triumph over one's enemies. Any Adumari could challenge another Adumari in armed combat, which was usually fought to the death unless the victor chose to lessen the prestige of his victory. Combat was the primary sport in Adumari society, with contests in ground-based combat and aerial dogfighting. The techniques developed by the Adumari were crude by modern galactic standards, since there were very few battles that involved more than two participants, and each was usually fighting for prestige rather than learning from past mistakes. As a people, though, the Adumari were known as hard-working, industrious people who developed sophisticated manufacturing facilities. What was considered unusual was that, despite their obsession with fightercraft, the Adumari never re-developed any form of space travel, a circumstance attributed to their unique society. When the Adumari were contacted by the New Republic and urged to form a world government, the perator of Cartann, Pekaelic ke Teldan, was approached first, since Cartann seemed to be the strongest of the existing city-states. However, the perator took it upon himself to ingratiate himself with the diplomats, in an effort to beat his rivals to the punch and become the planetary ruler. However, this Cartann-based government was met with opposition from several other nations, including the Yedagonian Confederacy and Halbegardia. In the end, it was discovered that the New Republic diplomat to Adumar, Tomer Darpen, was leading the Cartann leadership down a path he had chosen, rather than forming a democratic planetary government. The perator of Cartann opted to retire rather than be executed, and abdicated the throne to his son. A more representative world government was formed, and the Adumari elected to join the New Republic.
this was the name of the world government envisioned by Escalion, perator of Yedagon, for the planet Adumar. It was endorsed by the perators of Halbegardia, Thozzelling, and Tetanne, and they offered the nation of Cartann - under the leadership of a new perator, Balass ke Teldan - a chance to join it and help create its laws and policies. The Adumari Union was eventually admitted to the New Republic.
Advanced Appendage Bus
introduced shortly before the onset of the Clone Wars, this was Cybot Galactica's proprietary version of the Universal Socket Interface. While competitors and many small corporations claimed it was CG's method of driving its competition out of business, CG stated that the AAB was simply "more advanced technology." Benchmark tests showed that the AAB was up to three times as fast as the USI, at least according to CG spokebeings. Unfortunately for CG's customers, the AAB was incompatible with the USI, requiring the purchase of new technology in order to comply.

Advanced Reconnaissance Clone Trooper
known as an ARC Trooper or an Advanced Reconnaissance Commando, this was the term used to describe an elite soldier created from the genetic material of Jango Fett, cloned by the Kaminoans at the order of Jedi Master Sifo-Dyas. The Kaminoans had reservations about the ability of the Jedi Order to provide enough leaders for millions of clone troopers, so the ARC Trooper was developed to fill any possible voids. The ARC trooper had greater independence and adaptability than the standard clone trooper, and were often used in small groups for highly-sensitive missions. Jango himself had described the training program for the ARC Troopers, and was able to bypass the Kaminoans and instill his own orders into their training. Primary among these personal orders was directive to destroy all immature clones in the event that the Separatists attacked Kamino. Jango's final orders were that the young clones were to serve the Republic, or to die before they fell into enemy hands. The initial batch of ARC Troopers became known as the Null-class, and consisted of twelve individual clones that were developed from Jango's pure genetic stock. Only six survived to maturity, and were considered too unpredictable to maintain. The next generation became known as the Alpha-class, and consisted of the first 100 ARC Trooper. The ARCs were trained to be exceptionally strong and durable, with stamina that would amaze any race. The ability to recover from physical exertion was programmed into their training, with the ability to drop into various levels of rest to meet the individual needs of a trooper's body. They could even sleep on the march. The basic training of an ARC trooper was geared toward sending them out on solo missions, although they were often trained in small groups to minimize the time required to get them trained. The independence of the ARC troopers, however, made them somewhat unpredictable in battle. For this reason, the Kaminoans kept the ARC Troopers in stasis tubes until it was absolutely necessary to use them. Among the traits retained from Jango's original genes were several pieces of his memory; most prominently, the ARC Troopers retained a measure of disdain for the Jedi Knights.
