the designation of the TIE Fighters garrisoned at Revos, on the planet Storinal, shortly after the Battle of Endor.
the Star Destroyer Relentless was supposed to meet a supply convoy here, but it was destroyed by Alliance forces.
the Imperial frigate Juvani was destroyed by the Alliance near this planet.
this man was a native of a backwater world who made his own way through the Imperial Academy, relying on brains and physical skills - rather than a Core Worlds background or political maneuvering - to succeed. This meant that, after he proved to be an average pilot during his training, he was relegated to a career in the infantry. This didn't deter him in the least, however. Where other officers used their connections to earn promotions, Sunber earned promotions through hard work and diligence. He was one of a handful of officers who worked side-by-side with the troops under his command, which earned him the respect of his troops. Just after the Battle of Yavin, Lieutenant Sunber found himself stationed on Maridun with his commanding officers, Captain Gage and General Ziering. Although Ziering appreciated Sunber's opennes and candor, Gage and Commander Frickett thought him to be a pretensious poser whose only goal was to show up his immediate superiors. However, Sunber proved more than capable during an Amanin attack, and Ziering recognized that he was much more capable of commanding this forces that either Gage or Frickett. After Frickett's death and Gage's failure to estimate the enemy, Ziering promoted Sunber to Captain and placed him in charge of defending the survivors. His success at Maridun earned him command of the ground forces that were later dispatched to Jabiim, to assist with the subjugation of that planet. He found himself almost immediately short-handed, after the Navy's orbital bombardment killed just as many Imperials as it did rebels. Although the ground assault was finally successful, Sunber found himself questioning the continued need to destroy families in the name of the Empire.
this species of tree, native to the Forest Moon of Endor, was favored by the Ewoks for its succulent berries.
a Nharwaak transport ship destroyed by the Empire near the hidden Nharwaak base.
this beautiful flower was distinguished by its large blossoms, which opened every morning when the sun rose. Despite their pleasant appearance, a number of potent poisons could be extracted from its petals, leaves, and stalk.
this mining corporation operated a series on mines on the planet Cularin, during the height of the Old Republic. Sunburst spent a large sum of credits in developing a series of mines on Cloud Mountain, hoping to discover the large caches of rare minerals believed to have existed within the Mountain. However, the minerals were never found, and Sunburst went bankrupt when it couldn't repay the debts it incurred while digging the mines.
a weapons manufacturer.
this light exploration ship, piloted by Kyp Durron, accompanied the Courane and the Fireater during the defense of Nam Chorios from the fleet of Moff Getelles and Admiral Larm.
the human inhabitants of Sundari.
this planet, the third in the Garos System, was settled about 4,000 years before the Galactic Civil War. It is an arid world, with little or no natural resources except the ores that can be extracted from its rocky surface. A number of mining operations sprang up, and were supported only through sustained trade with Sundari's planetary neighbor, Garos IV. Over the millennia, a mutual relationship evolved which was recently broken. About 200 years prior to the Battle of Yavin, Sundars began moving to Garos IV, and the cultural mix began to grate. An intense civil war broke out, and lasted 82 years before Tork Winger and Tionthes Turi were able to come to an agreement over its ending. Small violations of the truce were noted until the Empire invaded the system, when all such "petty battles" were summarily put to rest.
this was the name of Jedi Master Plo Koon's personal space transport ship.
this was the codename used by Doctor Nashiak Llalik for his first design of personal power armor. The design itself was scrapped when personal armor was outlawed by the Empire, but he used many of its innovative features in the design of the armor worn by zero-g stormtroopers. The Sunder 9 prototype was armed with a blaster cannon and a flame thrower, and had a rocket pack for quick movements. It provided protection in aquatic and zero-g environments, and used a heat-sensitive body glove to protect the wearer. A sensor package and active monitors provided the wearer with a 270-degree field of vision, in light or dark, and even underwater.
this Acclamator-class troop transport was the flagship of the fleet that was assigned to Jedi Masters Saesee Tiin and Plo Koon, during their mission to prevent the defection of Rendili's home fleet, near the end of the Clone Wars.
a group of Alliance CR90 corvettes that was attempting to supply Harkov's fleet during its defection.
this land baron controlled much of the moisture farming property on Ord Mantell, during the last decades of the Old Republic. He arrived on Ord Mantell with the goal of "cleaning up" the planet, but he simply killed the existing land barons and usurped their operations. Sundown then blamed the deaths on the Mantellian savrips, and incited the villagers to kill the savrips. In the meantime, Sundown set up his operations on Ten Mile Plateau, where he operated a solar energy collection facility. He employed a group of lightsaber-wielding enforcers to protect his facility, in an effort to enhance his projected image as a former Jedi Knight. Qui-Gon Jinn and Obi-Wan Kenobi discovered that the enforcers lacked any independent will, as if Sundown were controlling them with The Force. When the Jedi began to discover Sundown's true motivations, he tried to capture Nella Bold and kill the Jedi. When he tried to escape in Nella's T-24 speeder, Sundown was unprepared for Obi-Wan's attack. Obi-Wan managed to destroy the top fin on the speeder, and Sundown was unable to control the craft. It crashed on Ten Mile Plateau, and Sundown's neck was broken in the crash. Qui-Gon and Obi-Wan then discovered that Sundown had been using a mind-control device to augment his claims of being a Jedi Knight, as part of a grander plot masterminded by Baroness Omnino to discredit the Jedi.
according to the mythology of the planet Tatooine, a sun-dragon lived inside the stars Tatoo I and Tatoo II. Smaller cousins of these sun-dragons were believed to inhabit the cores of fusion furnaces.
this man was a crimelord who lived in the city of Iritsa, on Chazwa, during the height of the New Order. He was the only serious rival to Hahz Fallone, and the two maintained an uneasy cease-fire in order to keep the city intact. Sune later revealed that he had helped Fallone begin mining the the planet Eckless, but Fallone later stabbed Sune in the back and made off with the Black Sphere. Sune spent much of his resource trying to locate the Sphere. Shortly after the Sphere was returned to Eckless, Sune and his forces were destroyed by an Imperial fleet while they were searching for the location of Eckless. For some reason, they had stumbled into a system which was deemed off-limited by the Empire, as a result of using the coordinates the found in a false Black Sphere they acquired from Fallone.
this was the sentient race of humanoid amphibians which evolved on the planet Monor II. In their native language, the word Sunesi means "pilgrim." The Sunesi are born as furry, senseless creatures who have little idea of the world around them. They are born with diffuse nervous systems and the ability to breathe in the planet's cirrifog-dense atmosphere. After about 15 standard years, they go into a hibernation-like state and begin to pupate. It is at this time that the cirrifog atmosphere is most important, for the small crystals in the fog are a necessary part of their metamorphosis. When mixed with their natural sweat, the crystals in the cirrifog help create a protective coccoon. Inside the coccoon, the young Sunesi are transformed into adults. However, the coccoon's shell becomes quite hard, and many juvenile Sunesi do not survive their pupation because they cannot break out of it. Those which do emerge from their coccoon become intelligent, hairless adults. The turquoise-colored adults have the ability to speak with their mouths, but can also communicate via ultrasonic waves created within their large crania. Their enlarged heads earned them the nickname "lumpheads." The Sunesi have long, thin limbs, and four thin fingers on each hand. The fact that all adults have survived the metamorphosis has led to a species-wide belief in reincarnation.
this was an alias used by Han Solo for the Millennium Falcon during the early years of the Empire. He used this alias when he landed on Etti IV to pay off his debt to Ploovo Two-for-One, after delivering weapons to insurrectionists on Duroon.
this flame projector unit was developed and manufactured by Merr-Sonn during the years leading up to the Clone Wars. It could be mounted on an atmospheric craft or speeder.
this remote outpost was located in the deserts of the planet Tatooine, and was established to serve as an early-warning site for vicious storms or Tusken Raider attacks. It was eventually abandoned after a wave of Tusken Raider attacks decimated the support staff and pillaged its supplies. Over time, the ruins of Sunfire Outpost became a haven for desert travelers, although it was constantly under the watchful eyes of the Tusken Raiders. During the height of the Galactic Civil War, Imperial forces tried to occupy the outpost, but were driven off by the Tusken Raiders.
this species of small fruit was often fermented and used to make a flavorful liqueur.
Jedi Master Arca Jeth's Delaya-class courier, the Sungem seemed to many of Master Arca's contemporaries to be too powerful a ship for a Jedi. However, these detractors had never actually been inside the courier ship. He had converted most of the cargo space into Jedi training facilities, and adorned the ship with Jedi sigils and a few personal artifacts. Individual chambers could have their environments altered to suit the needs of alien species, and could help Master Arca simulate hostile environments.
an Ithorian light source. Also called a solar globe.
this Xiytiar-class freighter was assigned to Wraith Squadron by the New Republic, during the hunt for Warlord Zsinj. Commanded by Captain Valton, the ship was ugly but nonetheless spaceworthy.
a huge, doglike creature found on Bodgen.
this sport was known in casinos which catered to betting on sporting events.
as its name implies, this abandoned city has begun sinking below the surface of the planet Aquilaris. About half of the city remained above the water, and the natives of Aquilaris left it in this state as a monument to those that survived its demise. During the last decades of the Old Republic, several podracing courses wound around and through the sunken city.
Sunken City Run
this was the name given to the pro-circuit podrace which wound through the continually-changing city of Sunken City, on the planet Aquilaris.
this native of Tirac Munda was a crafty thief with a heart of gold. Well-travelled and highly skilled, Sunlet was proficient in many languages. He was often hired by wealthy individuals who wanted him to find holes in their personal security systems.
Han Solo and Droma used this alias for the Millennium Falcon when they traveled to Tholatin in search of information on the whererabouts of Roa and Droma's family. Han assumed the identity of Miek while using this alias.
this reptile, native to the planet Tralus, could regenerate its limbs and tail.
a small spacecraft used by various ancient gas mining crews to collect elements from the corona of a star.
this anti-Imperial radical was one of Mon Mothma's early supporters, during the formation of the Alliance. An unusual humanoid being with a frog-like face and tall pointed ears, Sunn-Childe later left the Alliance and a life of violence behind. He established a base of operations on an unusual starship, which resembled a floating jungle with a dome-covered city at its core. This starship was capable of inter-dimensional travel, and escaped the known galaxy for many years until Lando Calrissian and Chewbacca stumbled upon it, shortly after the Battle of Hoth. It was on this strange ship that Sunn-Childe and his followers sought to escape from the madness of the Galactic Civil War, after Sunn-Childe himself emerged rejuvenated from the fires maintained by the M'ust race. It was from the M'ust that Sunn-Childe learned to control his desire for violence, and eventually became a peace-loving individual. It was from the Flame-God of the M'ust that Sunn-Childe claimed to have learned the ability to bring his dreams to life, a skill that allowed him to build his wondrous spacecraft and travel between dimensions. However, all his repressed violence manifested itself as the jungle outside the city, where dangerously wild M'ust patrolled the environs, contained only through tremendous effort on the part of Sunn-Childe himself. When Captain Plikk and her Imperial forces discovered the inter-dimensional location of Sunn-Childe's floating city, she tried to destroy it using the combined firepower of her ships. Sunn-Childe's anger at being attacked flared up, manifesting itself as powerful demons that crippled the Imperial ships. Appalled at his own violence, Sunn-Childe and his majordome Beelyard decided that there could be no peace without sacrifice. Knowing that the Imperial ships were badly damaged, Sunn-Childe called off the demon attack, allowing Plikk to restart her own assault. Plikk used energy from her ships' hyperdrives to destroy Sunn-Childe's floating city, but in doing so she stranded her fleet in the interdimensional nothingness.
this small corporation produced a variety of industrial-strength light sources.
this group of smugglers' freighters was detained by Imperial Customs for carrying illegal drugs during the Galactic Civil War.
Sunny Side of Ryloth
this song, written and played by the band Red Shift Limit, first appeared on the compilation Thoughts from the Core. It was banned by the Imperial Board of Culture.
this flower is found on the planet Timora.
this was the name of the small transport ship used by Jedi Master Ikrit, during the early decades of the New Republic. Ikrit found the ship in the hangar at Bast Castle, on the planet Vjun, during a mission to recover the lightsaber of Obi-Wan Kenobi. Anakin Solo, the grandson of the castle's builder, Darth Vader, decided that Ikrit could have the ship for his own use. Ikrit named the ship for Nomi Sunrider, an ancient Jedi Knight who gave up the use of her lightsaber in much the same way that Ikrit had done. The ship was later stolen by Uldir Lochett, when he tried to apprentice himself to the Mage Orloc as a youth. Uldir flew the Sunrider to Exis Station to meet Orloc, and parked the ship in an abandoned docking bay. Unfortunately for Uldir and Master Ikrit, the Ranats which had infested the station dismantled the ship for parts.
Andur was the grandson of Jev Sunrider, and followed in his footsteps to take up training with the force. Andur trained initially under Master Chamma, until Chamma could no longer teach him. Andur had not yet completed his training, however. Master Chamma sent him to take some Adegan crystals to Master Thon, and to continue his training on Ambria, so Andur packed up his wife, Nomi, and their infant daughter, Vima, and headed for the Stenness System. However, upon reaching the main spaceport terminal, Andur tried to avoid a confrontation with some thugs and was killed by the bite of a gorm worm when his attention was elsewhere.
this ancient Jedi Knight served as the watchman of the Darada System four millennia before the Battle of Yavin. He was later dispatched to Krayiss Two with three other Jedi Masters, to determine the cause of the evil growing there. None of the Jedi ever returned, but Jev's shimmering ghost soon appeared to his grandson, Andur, imploring Andur to take up the Jedi training nad help confront the growing evil in the galaxy.
the wife of Andur Sunrider, Nomi accompanied her husband on a mission to deliver Adegan crystals from Master Chamma to Master Thon. When they were waylayed in the Stenness System and Andur was killed, Nomi suddenly realized that she was as strong with the Force as her husband was, if not stronger. She quickly dispatched the thugs that killed Andur, using his lightsaber to cut them down. She feared the use of the weapon, and later continued her dead husband's trek through the Stenness System to deliver the Adegan crystals to Ambria. There, she herself picked up the Jedi training that was meant for her husband. She trained under Master Thon, who discovered that Nomi was proficient in the use of Jedi battle meditation. Thon also started training Nomi's daughter, Vima. When Bogga the Hutt pursued Nomi and her Adegan crystals to Ambria, Nomi again resisted the use of the lightsaber, but took it up to defend her Jedi Master. She dispatched Bogga's minions, and strode further down the path to becoming a Jedi. It is later revealed by Thon that Nomi's coming is foretold in at least one of the Jedi Prophecies. She was later assigned to assist Ulic Qel-Droma in quelling the civil war in Onderon system, and eventually fell in love with Ulic. That love was short-lived, though, for Ulic fell down the path to the Dark Side of the Force in his attempt to penetrate the Krath. They tried to defeat the Krath in the Empress Teta System, but were repelled. She was part of the Great Council on Deneba, and later returned to the Tetan System to try and persuade Ulic from his dark quest. Her love for him proved to be lesser than his desire to avenge Arca's death, and he left to become Exar Kun's apprentice. She returned to Master Thon, and was caught by Crado and Oss Willum, who had come to kill Thon as part of Exar Kun's pogrom. She and Sylvar were able to stave off the attack, but Nomi was drawn deeper into the Great Sith War. When Ulic Qel-Droma wsa captured and brought to trial on Coruscant, Nomi went with Cay Qel-Droma and Tott Doneeta to try and appeal to Ulic. His Sith possession was too deep for Nommi's love, and the appearance of Exar Kun only strengthened Ulic's powers. Nomi and the other Jedi were powerless as Kun executed Vodo-Siosk Baas, and struggled to follow Ulic and Kun to the Auril Systems. Nomi went to Ossus to assist with the evacuation of the Jedi libraries after Aleema destroyed the Cron System, and was again caught up in Ulic's demise. After Ulic murdered his brother, Cay, Nomi was so enraged that she used the Force in an attempt to cut Ulic off from the Force. Her anger made the attempt extremely effective, and Ulic was completely cut off from the energy of the Force. She resolved herself to the fact that Ulic would never love her again. In the aftermath of the Great Sith War, Nomi threw herself into politics and was the driving force behind the Exis Convocation, but lost tracked of her daughter Vima, who stowed away on Hoggon's ship to seek out Ulic on Rhen Var. Joined by Sylvar, Nomi traveled to Rhen Var to recover her daughter. She discovered that Ulic had never forgotten her, and had in fact carved the likenesses of Nomi and Andur into a cliff of ice with Vima's help. However, she was unprepared for Sylvar's arrival on Rhen Var, and even less prepared for Hoggon's killing of Ulic. After Ulic's body disappeared into the Force, Nomi vowed to focus more on the training of her daughter. Although the Jedi histories don't provide any further information on Nomi Sunrider, it is known that her daughter Vima continued the line of Sunrider Jedi Knights, and her line was thought to be ended with the death of Vima-da-Boda.
(TOJ, DA, DLS, TSW, EGC, TOJR, ECH)
the daughter of Andur and Nomi Sunrider, Vima was born with a rich family heritage in the use of the Force. Little in known about her early training following the death of her father, but she showed an innate ability to talk with animals. During the Exis Convocation, Vima grew bored when her mother refused to train. Using her rudimentary skills with the Force, Vima stowed away on Hoggon's and convinced him to take her to Ulic Qel-Droma on Rhen Var. Vima believed that Ulic would train her in the Jedi way, despite his lack of contact with the Force, but was unprepared for his initial wrath. However, Ulic realized that Vima had been sent to him for a reason, and agreed to train her. Vima was a quick study, and soon built her own lightsaber. However, to Ulic's dismay, Vima began to grow impatient with the learning process. She was quickly calmed by Ulic, who feared losing her to the Dark Side fof the Force. When Nomi arrived on Rhen Var to take her home, Vima refused to leave Ulic's side. Ulic, for all his despair, discussed things with Nomi and convinced her that he had tried his best to lead Vima toward the Light Side of the Force. When Ulic was killed by Hoggon, Vima and Nomi saw Ulic's body disappear into the Force, and realized that he still had the heart of a Jedi. With his last breath, Ulic proclaimed Vima to be a Jedi herself. Vima returned with her mother, who continued her training.
this news program picked up the story initially written by Cindel Towani for The Life Monitor, detailing the various accounts of New Republic armed forces who fought and died during the Black Fleet Crisis. The article, drafted by Hiram Drayson, was designed to help bolster public support of Leia Organa-Solo.
this immense, ocean-going cutter was one of the fastest ships on the planet Maramere, during the years following the Battle of Naboo. Ambassador Loreli Ro turned control of the ship over to Nym and his mercenaries, during their search for Sol Sixxa. The Sunrunner was unarmed, so Nym's crew took weaponry from their starhsip Havoc and mounted them aboard the Sunrunner. The ship was destroyed in the final battle between Nym and Sol Sixxa, when Nym purposely overloaded its power generators and crashed it into the Trade Federation cutter commanded by Ruuk. With the Federation ship out of the way, Nym asked Sol Sixxa to join his mercenary gang in fighting the Trade Federation's occupation of the Karthakk System.
this Ikas-Adno landspeeder measured 6.2 meters in length.
this former solder was among the many who fought for the Old Republic during the years leading up to the Great Sith War. A noted pilot, he was crippled in battle, but was later awarded the Republic' Hero's Cross medal for his valor. Sunry and his wife, Elora, were married for many years before it was discovered that Sunry was having an affair. It turned out that the woman he was seeing was actually the Sith officer, Elassa. Sunry admitted his mistake, and agreed to end the affair, only to find that Elassa had been murdered in their hotel room. Sunry fled the scene, but several witnesses saw him leave. He was accused of Elassa's murder and brought to trial, where his old friend Jolee Bindo agreed to defend him in court. As the trial played out, it became obvious that Sunry had been the victim of a Sith plot to infiltrate the Republic's military command. His ending of the affair thwarted that plan, so the Sith chose to murder Elassa and plant his Hero's Cross on her body, in an effort to discredit the Republic by implicating him in the crime. Sunry was eventually found innocent, but Elassa's killer was never identified.
this was the name given to the marina and port located near the city of Corocus, on Pydyr.
this was the name of the reeho bird caught by Reanyn, who was unaware that T'laerean Larn was controlling the bird's mind.

this was a magical stone discovered by the Ewoks. The Ewoks refused to use the Sunstar, fearing that its magical power was too strong for them to control. Only the shamn Logray ever dared to use it, combining it with Morag's Shadowstone to defeat the Tulgah witch and maintain the freedom of the Ewoks.
this form of rock gives off an intense glow which is accompanied by a great amount of heat, much like the light and heat given off by a sun. They are often used to heat barren asteroid bases.
this was a type of valuable gemstone.
this Yuuzhan Vong warship, a greater version of the Vua'spar interdictor, was the flagship of Warmaster Tsavong Lah. Like most of the Yuuzhan Vong forces, the Sunulok had been en route to the galaxy for many years, and certain parts of the ship had begun to die off. Nevertheless, the ship still maintained all its weapons and shielding systems, and served well as the Warmaster's vessel. Primary among the ship's operative systems was the collection of dovin basals it used as a gravity well projector and tractor beam. These dovin basals were used to drag New Republic starships out of hyperspace for boarding. Shortly after the Battle of Duro, the Sunulok found itself under attack from Han Solo and the Millennium Falcon. Solo had been running a series of privateer missions for Luke Skywalker's Great River, and ambushed the Sunulok. In a bold maneuver, Han released a cargo of liquid hydrogen in the vicinity of the Sunulok and began firing into it. The hydrogen didn't burn, lacking oxygen in the vacuum of space. However, when exited by the blaster bolts and drawn into the gravity wells of the dovin basals, the hydrogen became quickly compressed. This caused each blasted glob of hydrogen to become a miniature fusion reactor, dumping incredible amounts of energy into the Sunulok's systems. This overloaded the ship, shutting down the organic tractor beam and allowed Han to escape. The Yuuzhan Vong were able to regroup, and eventually the Warmaster launched Battle Plan Coruscant. In the first wave of ships to attack the planet, the Sunulok led an assault from a position hidden in the OboRin Comet Cluster. However, the initial response from the New Republic forces was formidable, and the Sunulok was disabled early in the battle. The ship was badly damaged as the Republic's forces struggled to capture the yammosk hidden inside, and their efforts were ultimately successful. The Warmaster and his crew were forced to abandon the Sunulok and leave it for dead.

this group of Adumari Blade-32 fighters served aboard the Allegiance during the defense of Adumar.
this was a model of Ikas-Adno speederbike, and was company's first entry into the military market. It was based on the civilian Starhawk bike, and was a one-seater. Other than this, and the addition of a laser cannon, the Sunwolf is identical to the Starhawk.
this planet, the capital world of the Suolriep Sector, was the sight of an Alliance base prior to the Battle of Yavin.
this area of the galaxy contained the planet Suolriep.
this starfighter was manufactured by Joraan Drive Yards for Black Sun, during the height of the New Order. The basic design was armed with a pair of laser cannons, a light ion cannon, and two concussion missile launchers.
Super Battle Droid
this was a greatly-enhanced version of the basic B1-series battle droid produced by Baktoid Combat Automata for the Trade Federation. The original design, which mimicked the skeleton of a Neimoidian, lacked independent programming and had several pieces of sophisticated technology mounted externally. This meant that the basic battle droid needed a Droid Control Ship to receive orders, and that they were subject to damage in the field. The Super Battle Droid - designated the B2-series - was Baktoid's attempt to solve these design issues. The torso and upper body of the Supoer Battle Droid was beefed up with armor plating, inside of which the droid componentry was protected. A dedicated double laser cannon was built into the droid's right arm, and its manipulator arms could operate several other weapon types. The feet of the Super Battle Droid were detachable, allowing the droid to be fitted with grasping claws or magnetic units to operation in a variety of environments. Large numbers of these combat automatons were purchased by the Confederacy of Independent Systems for their own defense. With the end of the Clone Wars, all B2-series battle droids were issued orders to deactivate, as part of Darth Sidious' plan to consolidate military power and ensure the loyalty of his troops.
(SWDB, MBS, VD3)
Super Battle Droid Dispenser
this was essentially the stationary version of the MTT developed by the Trade Federation, but designed to accommodate the B2-series Super Battle Droid. Each dispenser was an immense, armor-plating unti that could be deployed in the midst of a battlezone. Each dispenser was heavily armored, and provided a sort of base for its contigent of droids to return to for recharging or resupply of ammunition. These units were deployed regularly during the Clone Wars.
this starfighter was developed at the Maw Installation, although the plans for it never reached Imperial space or Seinar Fleet Systems. The Super TIE/In was an improvement on the basic TIE Fighter, but still lacked a hyperdrive. The primary advances were inproved power supply and increased thrust.
Super Transport VI
an outdated container ship manufactured by Kuat Drive Yards.
Super Transport VII
this huge container ship was developed as part of the successful Super Transport line by Kuat Drive Yards. The Super Transport VII measured 280 meters in length, and was designed to carry two million metric tons of cargo. It required a crew of 80 to maintain.

a container ship built by the Kuat Drive Yards, it measures 840 meters in length, and can carry 10 million cubic meters of cargo with a maximum mass of 25 million metric tons. It has room for 40,000 standard containers stored in 20 separate holds, or it can be modified to transport up to three CR90 corvettes. It has limited climatic and pressure controls, and requires a crew of just 100.
Super Vaporator (*)
a vaporator large enough to supply all of Tatooine with water.
Super-class Star Destroyer
this was the term used by certain Alliance personnel to describe the Executor-class Star Destroyer that was built by Kuat Drive Yards for the Empire. Often simply referred to as a Super Star Destroyer, the term usually referred to any ship that was larger than the standard Imperial-class Star Destroyer.
this massive computer system was manufactured by MicroThrust, during the height of the New Order.
this was one of the earliest models of starship computers produced by Hanx-Wargel. It was the computer system chosen for the original B-7 light freighters.
this model of Hanx-Wargel shipboard computer was used on most Corellian YT-1300 stock light freighters produced during the last years of the Old Republic. Han Solo rebuilt his a number of times, in order to get it to monitor and manage all of his unique modifications to the Millennium Falcon.
a series of cargo skiffs manufactured by Ubrikkian.
SuperHaul Model II
this was the second-generation cargo skiff produced by Ubrikkian during the Galactic Civil War. Measuring 9.2 meters in length, the SuperHaul Model II could carry up to twenty passengers or 135 metric tons of cargo.
SuperHaul Model IIA mod 3
this Ubrikkian Industries cargo skiff was modified for used as an aquatic hunting platform. At twelve meters in length, and equipped with a pair of power harpoons, these craft were used to hunt large fish. The Model IIA mod 3 required a pilot, co-pilot, and two gunners to operate, and could carry two passengers and 150 metric tons of fish.
this was one of the few Imperial-class Star Destroyers to survive the Yuuzhan Vong's initial attack on the Imperial Remnant, a year or so after the Battle of Coruscant. Unfortunately, the ship was destroyed at the Battle of Bastion.

this popular holofilm starred Harlan Ottekvar.
the most powerful, destructive weapons ever created, superlasers use a huge fusion reactor core and turbine generators to create the intense bundles of energy they unleash. These weapons were first used aboard the Death Star space stations. Multiple superlasers were set around the Death Star's laser eye, and focused on a point just beyond the Death Star's perimeter. When the multiple energy beams met, they collided and combined. The beams were then thrust out on a single path toward their target. The intense power generated by these mutliple beams was sufficient to destoy a planet. The Empire also modified the Death Star superlasers for use on the Eclipse-class and Sovereign-class Star Destroyers. These superlasers were mounted axially on the huge Star Destroyers, allowing the vessels to maintain position and orientation during and after the generation of the laser blast.
(SW, ROTJ, ISB, DE1)
Superlaser Mark II
this was the designation of the primary weapon used aboard the second Death Star. The primary difference between this weapon and that of the first Death Star was in its targetting capability. The Mark II superlaser could target something as small as a capital ship, where the original superlaser was unable to target anything smaller than a moon.
Superlift Ore Hauler
designed and manufactured by Corellian Engineering Corporation, this 155-meter-long starship was known to be slow, sluggish, barely armored, and poorly protected. Thus, it was often escorted from its prospecting runs. The Superlift required a crew of 10, and could transport up to five passengers and 90,000 metric tons of ore.
this was the name used by the Yuuzhan Vong to describe their organic hyperdrive technology.
see resonance torpedo
this was the name given to BioTech's skeletal reinforcement system. It was originally designed for implantation into the bodies of those being who suffered from degenerative bone disorders, where the natural skeletal system was unable to support the rest of the body.
