the title given to Luke Skywalker by the reborn Emperor Palpatine, shortly after Luke agreed to turn himself to the ways of the Dark Side of the Force and become Palpatine's apprentice.
this was the name of the governing body that controlled the planet Skye. A Patriarch was elected to lead the Council, with each Patriarch ruling for no more than forty-two years. The Patriarch was alternately chosen from the Highland and Lowland Clans. The Outlander Clan had a single representative on the Council, but this representative could never serve as Patriarch. The forty-two-year term represented the forty-two unique clans in each group.
the name given to a brand of Chepat starship shields used on luxury liners.
this model of Lovolan droid was originally designed to serve the aristocracy as a servant. The Supreme-class droid was elegantly shaped, giving it a pleasing appearance to most humanoid races. It could communicate in a wide range of languages, and was programmed to understand the high-society nuances of certain Core World dialects. The main drawback of the Supreme-class droid, especially those manufactured after its initial run, was that it was produced to quickly, and the craftmanship was poor. The later models tended to fall apart at the most inopportune times, embarrasing their owners and causing a backlash of bad publicity for Lovolan. Those droid which ended up in the possession of crimelords and other unscrupulous owners were so gracious and willing to please their owners, they would often alllow illicit modifications to their programming. These droids were used as eavesdroppers and money launderers, and the Supreme-class was later investigated for possible security breeches by the Imperial Intelligence agency.
this was the brand name of Merr-Sonn's R-88 riot control weapon.
this Corellian CE-2 freighter was owned and operated by Captain Sivar during the Galactic Civil War. Note that X-Wing: Alliance claims that this ship was a Mobquet Transport. He had it upgraded to have stronger shields and hull plating, as well as armed it with a pair of turret-mounted double laser cannons and a pair of concussion missile launchers. The Suprosa was supposedly carrying fertilizer shortly after the Battle of Hoth when word was leaked to the Bothans that it was really carrying highly sensitive Imperial information. This information was leaked by Prince Xizor, from Emperor Palpatine. The contact told the Bothans that the Alliance would want the information, because it involved a construction project that could greatly affect the outcome of the Galactic Civil War. The Bothans tried to get the information to Leia Organa on Tatooine, but she was on Rodia at the time. Luke Skywalker and Lando Calrissian assisted the Bothans in taking control of the Suprosa, at the cost of a dozen Bothan lives. The Empire had outfitted the Suprosa with hidden weapons systems, making it appear as a fertilizer hauler. It quickly opened fire on the Y-Wings flown by Luke and the Bothans, killing six ships before being disabled and boarded.

this man was a minor smuggler who worked the Outer Rim at the height of the New Order. After displeasing Jabba the Hutt, Suraya fled to Tasariq, arriving shortly after Governor Keval placed tariffs on off-world goods. Suraya set himself up as the resident black market supplier, and made a small fortune importing a variety of goods. He purchased the security droid K4X4 to watch his back after Captain Kullan Veleriden staged an attack on his life.
this Dug statesman was a member of the Black Shred Water clan of Malastare. Surdu was discovered to have been one of Sebulba's ancestors.
this multi-legged amphibian, native to the planet Kashyyyk, was domesticated and used as a mount by the Wookiees. The body of a sureggi resembled that of a huge centipede, with many pairs of legs running along its length. Each body section was protected by flexible armor plates, and its skin was dry and durable. Its head was spade-shaped, with a wide mouth and two small eyes set atop a bony ridge. The nose of the sureggi was covered with a group of tentacle-like sensory organs, which helped it locate the grubs and small creatures that it consumed for food. Each of the sureggi's twenty-eight legs ended in a long "hand", which gave it exeptional climbing and swimming ability.
(SWDB, LAT2, GMR4)
this small corporation produced a number of climbing accessories manufactured with FrictionGrip, including climbsuits, gloves, boots, and syntherope.
this Caamasi Jedi Knight was known for his honesty. He was once quoted as saying, "Let there be truth between your heart and the Force. All else is transitory."
this herd animal was native to the planet Ansion. Distinguished by their coiled antlers, surepps were favored among Alwari clans because they congregated in tight herds, making them easier to defend against packs of shanh. However, they were more costly to maintain, so only the richest of Alwari clans could afford to keep them. The males of the species had blue fur and dark ruffs of fur around their necks, while the females had green fur and were slightly larger. What made the surepp unusual was the fact that it had three eyes, aligned vertically down their sloping nose. The upper eye was used to see into the sky, the middle eye to keep track of the surepp herd, and the lower eye was used to look for food and obstacles on the ground. While maintained for their meat, the teeth and antlers of the surepp were used to form tools and knives. Because of their densely-packed herds, surepps slept standing up, a position which allowed them to flee at the first indication of a predator. The Ansionians regarded an albino surepp as a good omen, and any clan with a white surepp in its herd was considered lucky.
this material, developed by GTU, was used to form patches for the AV-1 series of power armor.
this battered YT-1300 light freighter, which could barely fly, was captained by Izal Waz. It was part of the small fleet of vessels maintained by the Wild Knights, before the left Barab I and joined the Jedi Knights, shortly before the Second Battle of Coruscant. It was destroyed near the Cinnabar Moon, while following the Millennium Falcon back to Coruscant, when it hit an orbital mine and exploded.
developed by Neuro-Saav, this weapons sighting and targeting system was designed for use in protective helmets. Using a proprietary interface, the Sure-Sight could link with a weapon's own sighting system and provide the user with a way to specify a target by simply looking at it. The Ubese used this targetting system in their bounty hunter's helmets, complementing the NiteSite infrared motion sensor.
this sophisticated tracking device was manufactured by the Rhinsome Tracking Corporation. The main unit was as small as a button, and attached itself to the target's clothing with a pair of tiny barbs. It was capable of providing the exact range, direction, and speed of the beacon, but was also very expensive.
Surface Charge Capacitance
a weapons-powering system which uses the natural properties of starship hulls to collect and store static energy. As a ship passes through space, it rubs against the various particles which exist in space. This action creates a charge against the ship's hull. In small ships, the hull is able to collect the charge in much the same way a capacitor would. This energy can be shunted into a weapons system, eliminating the need for a separate power generator. This method of powering weapons is not useful on large, capital ships, for the amount of charge is incredible, and cannot be safely shunted into weapons.
this was the alias used by the New Republic for the patrol ship Instigator, when the ship was used to infiltrate the Kaarenth Dissension.
this starship component was used to provide protection to delicate systems in the event of a power surge. The surge arrestor used special circuits to dampen the effects of a power surge, providing a steady current to downstream systems.
this variation on yorik coral was used by Yuuzhan Vong priests and military leaders during the ritual of escalation. A small, horn-shape piece of surge-coral was placed inside the shoulder of a worthy Yuuzhan Vong by an implanter, where it was fused to the bone and gave the Yuuzhan Vong a pointed knob at the shoulder which indicated their rank. As a warrior was honored for more and more bravery, he was implanted with more surge-coral. The coral continued to live after implantation, providing a constant and painful reminder of the warrior's service to the Yuuzhan Vong. The Yuuzhan Vong later developed surge-coral which could receive commands form a yammosk, giving the warriors with implants the advantage of working as a well-coordinated unit.

Surgical Umbrella Field
this specialized form of shielding was developed on the planet Haruun Kal, during the Old Republic, to help fight off a variety of native fungi which fed on metals and silicates. The umbrella could be erected over a single docking bay or an entire spaceport, to eliminate additional bacteria and mold.
Surgoth, Van Jahan
this man, a native of the polar regions near the Sea of Jarad, on the planet Tralus, was a noted "stabman" - the name used to describe the harpooners who hunted styanax. He tended to blend in with the rest of his tribe, and almost never spoke aloud. He preferred to let his actions speak, a trait which carried over into his training of other "stabmen."
this Ishi Tib was the leader of his homeworld, Tibrin, during the early stages of the Clone Wars. He was loyal to the Old Republic, and struggled to keep his planet a member of the Republic despite popular sentiment to join the Separatists. He used strong-arm tactics, and even political assassinations, to maintain his position and the power he wielded, a fact that the Separatist underground on Tibrin used to their advantage. When Count Dooku arrived to negotiate with Suribran Tu for the rights to use Tibrin as a base for Separatist activites, Suribran Tu seemed to be open to any suggestion the Count had. Dooku, however, was not interested in platitudes. He consulted his bodyguards, among them the turncoat Jedi Knight Quinlan Vos. Quinlan reminded the Count that Suribran Tu was just as corrupt as the Old Republic, and was not worth the effort of negotiation. Dooku agreed, and used his lightsaber to behead Suribran Tu in one smooth stroke. Dooku then installed Sora Bulq as the provisional governor. Suribran Tu's death at the hands of the Separatists was welcomed by the Ishi Tib populace, who eagerly joined the Confederacy of Independent Systems.
this small corporation produced a number of chemical detection systems for personal use as well as for use on starships. These devices allowed owners to analyze the chemical contents of unknown foods, or to monitor the levels of carbon dioxide and other dangerous chemicals in the air supply, providing early warnings of life support system failure.
this man worked as a mid-level customs agent on the planet Brentaal, during the height of the Galactic Civil War. Unknown to most other beings, however, was that Surl was actually an undercover agent for the Imperial Security Bureau, and a corrupt one at that. He worked closely with Dania to uncover rebel cells on the planet, as well as to skim as many credits out of the Imeprial bank accounts as he could.
this was a common name among the Filordi race.
this Imperial Navy Commander served as Barse Neoman's second-in-command aboard the Strike-class cruiser Ion Storm during the last years of the New Order. Surlev was exceedingly loyal to Governor Newen Streeg, a fact that forced Captain Neoman to keep an eye on Surlev. They were ordered to await the arrival of Major Stipling from Yen-2, but when he didn't return Surlev ordered the Ion Storm to the planetoid. There, Surlev discovered that Limna Yith had destroyed the outpost on orders from Sprax, and Surlev vowed to track the Kerestian down and bring her to Imperial justice. He tried to knock out Abek's Station to recover her, but a team of Mal Biron's spacers got to her first. Surlev continued his pursuit, hoping to displace Neoman as commander of the Ion Storm.
this was the largest port city located on the planet Najiba.

this tall, muscular woman was one-half of the most famous brother and sister bounty-hunting team in the galaxy. They worked through the House Neuvalis syndicate. Where her brother Alic was level-headed in battle, Vika was emotionally disturbed and revelled in making the kill. She was hospitalized at a young age, shortly after the deaths of their parents in a speeder wreck. From that point onward, she was mentally unbalanced. She was something of a fitness fanatic, and trained constantly in order to maintain her almost super-human strength.

this race of hive-mind lifeforms had a guild-based society in which each guild maintained its own hive mentality. They produced some interesting starship designs, each of which was a unique artifact displaying their guild's technology. Their ships were originally used only by Surronians, although some have been given as gifts to individuals who have donated their efforts to help the Surronians. Eventually, hit with an economic depression that threatened to unravel their society, the Surronians entered a contract with Rendili StarDrive, and produced the Starlight freighter. With the funds from the sales of the Starlight, the Surronians were able to get back on the road to economic recovery. They also began releasing a "limited edition" of their starship designs to the general public, further increasing their net wealth.
a remote city-area on Coruscant. Mon Mothma owned an estate there, after her retirement from running the New Republic.
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 "decapitates his prey".
this drug was outlawed for recreational use, during the decads prior to the Battle of Naboo. It still had a variety of medicinal uses, so survapierre was never completely banned. A small but lucrative trade in smuggled survapierre sprang up to supply recreational users and abusers with the drug.
Surveillance and Security Corps
this was one of the first offshoots of the Imperial Security Bureau, created about a year after the end of the Clone Wars as a planetary security force. The ISB established a division of the Surveillance and Security Corps on each of those worlds that showed the most resistance to Imperial control, in the wake of the establishment of the New Order.
much smaller than a directional transponder, this device allows a scout or military field personnel to know their location on a planet by triangulating positions of known orbital and topological features.
developed and produced by TaggeCo, this 40-meter-long transport craft was a miniature version of the Sandcrawlers scavenged by the Jawas of Tatooine. The Survey-class crawler required a pilot and co-pilot to operate, and could accommodate up to 20 metric tons of cargo and 26 passengers.

this was the name of a Corellian Engineering Corporation emergency lifeboat. The Survivor measured 10 meters in length.
this was the name used by the descendants of those followers of Xim the Despot who landed the Queen of Ranroon on Dellalt, shortly after the Third Battle of Vontor. The Survivors lived in isolation on Dellalt for many millennia, guarding the secret of the Queen of Ranroon and awaiting the time when another despot rose to power and unlocked the keys to Xim's power. They avoided contact with the other humans living on Dellalt, although a number of them took jobs in various levels of Dellaltian commerce. These positions allowed them to monitor the comings and goings of parties interested in the long-lost treasures of Xim, thus alerting them to any possible intrusion. Their total population remained around 100 people, which helped keep the group hidden from mainstream life. The Survivors segregated their population into two groups: the workers, who were hypno-imprinted to do what they were commanded to do; and the leaders, who understood the legacy handed down to them from Xim. As a group, the Survivors wore the ancient clothing and armor used by Xim's forces. Since landing on Dellalt, they also set up a quasi-religion around the search for the High Command and the next galactic despot. The center of this religion was the beacon which they projected into space from Dellalt. The beacon contained the clues to Xim's power, which the Survivors believed would be interpretted by the next despot. The Survivors realized that they did not have the resources to overthrow the Old Republic, and so they bided their time over many generations. When the New Order was established, backwater systems like the Tion Hegemony were left more or less to themselves, so the Survivors began strengthening their beacon. When Han Solo, Chewbacca, Skynx, Alexsandr Badure, and Hasti Troujow arrived on Dellalt, several years before the Battle of Yavin, the Survivors had started making sacrifices, believing that such sacrifices would strengthen the beacon and help the next despot find them. After the Guardian Corp was destroyed, the Survivors were easily rounded up by Solo's group, who questioned them about the location of the Queen of Ranroon.
this was the name given to those beings who were part of the original Outbound Flight Project, and who managed to survive its destruction. In the wake of the attacks, there were just fifty-seven Survivors. By the time Outbound Flight was discovered, some fifty years after its disappearance, only ten Survivors remained. Three of them - Chas Uliar, Tarkosa, and Keely - served on the Managing Council. The other seven were too feeble to move about. After the Vagaari threat was eliminated, the Survivors grudgingly agreed to accompany the Outbound Flight Colony to Nirauan, staying as far away from the New Republic as they could.
this was the name used by fighter pilots to denote any sabacc or gambling pot which was left whenever their squadron was called to active duty. Any game interrupted by a combat order had its pot added to the Survivor's Fund, which was distributed to the surviving members of the families of pilots who were killed in the line of duty.
one of the first entities consumed by the Sarlacc located in the Great Pit of Carkoon, Susejo's consciousness was contained in the Sarlacc. Susejo infiltrated himself into all of the Sarlacc's victims' minds, trying to obtain some form of amusement. Susejo was a native of the planet Choi. He had been in the Sarlacc for well over four thousand years, and was more than a little insane when Boba Fett was swallowed by it. Susejo amused himself - and the Sarlacc - by tormenting the Sarlacc's victims with stories and jokes.
this name was used to describe the moon Suarbi 7/5 by the colonists who tried to tame the world centuries ago. It is a shortening of its official name.
this Verpine was one of Ackbar's assistants, and was a leader of the Shantipole project. He is a prime example of the Verpine's child-like sense of wonder, and his antenna twitch whenever he gets excited. Known to his friends as Foo, he quickly mastered the Basic language. He was also an open supporter of the Alliance, and acted as a go-between for his hive and Ackbar.

this was a specialized form of furniture cushion that employed a tiny repulsorlift engine to make the cushion hover above the floor. The height at which the suspension cushion floated could be adjusted by controls on the cushion's control panel.
this large, transparent-bodied crustacean was native to the planet Calamari. The average specimen measured a half-meter in length, and caught its prey with a pair of nasty, hooked claws. The transparent shell allowed the sussimi to sneak up on its prey, and the only time a sussimi could be seen was just after it had eaten, when its stomach was visible beneath the shell. The shell was formed from natural elements that were similar in many respects to transparisteel, and was valued by artisans and collectors. When startled or attacked, a sussimi expelled a cloud of clear, burning acid as it fled.

this surname was common among the Sullustan race, and meant "wainwright" in the Sullustan language.
this immense creature was native to the planet Ansion. It had six long legs, and each foot ended with six long, clawed toes. This combination of thirty-six toes allowed the suubatar to race across the grasslands of Ansion at incredible speeds, often appearing to run just above the ground using only their toes to propel themselves along. They were also excellent swimmers, using all their toes to literall "grab" the water. The Alwari nomads were the first to domesticate the suubatar for use as a mount, and it was a symbol of pride and standing to have a splendid specimen as a mount. When a suubatar stood up, it was three times as tall as a human, and its neck and upper back rose at a steep angle. This required that the Ansionians use a high-backed saddle, known as a viann, that kept them in an upright position. Most suubatars had light, golden-brown fur striped with green, allowing them to blend into the grassy plains of the planet. They were omnivorous, able to feed on just about anything that happened to be in their path. The head of a suubatar was smooth and wide, with a single nostril and flat ears to make it aerodynamic. Its jaws were unable unhinge, giving the suubatar the ability to consume foods which were larger than its own mouth. The tail of a suubatar was long and thin.

Suuv Ban D'Krid Cruiser
this Yuuzhan Vong warship measured 720 meters in length, and was the closest analog to a standard cruiser in the New Republic Navy. It carried a complement of thirty-six coralskippers in several yorik coral arms, and its hull was studded with forty plasma projector weapons. A crew of 480 warriors was required to keep the ship operative, and it could accommodate up to 1,930 troops and 2,000 metric tons of cargo. Although they were equipped with a collection of dovin basals, the Suuv Ban D'Krid cruiser could not generate an interdiction field. These craft were usually accompanied in battle by one or more Uumufalh gunships.
a somewhat complex game of strategy and skill.
this ancient Rodian was an ancestor of Suz Tanwa. It was Suvam Tan who stored five priceless artifacts in the Yavin System some 4,000 years before the Battle of Yavin, then encoded their locations in a wondrous crystal. Suvam Tan had come to the Yavin System to explore, and was enslaved when Exar Kun took control of the Massassi on Yavin 4. During this time, he had access to the great temples, and he had enough of his own mind about him to remember where the best treasure was. After escaping from Kun, Suvam Tan was named the administrator the ancient Yavin Station. From a base on the station, Suvam Tan made a name for himself as a craftsbeing. Not only could he fix anything, but Suvam Tan could find almost anything. When Yavin Station began to fail, Suvam Tan took his most valuable possessions and hid them in shielded cargo pods. Their locations were placed in the crystal, and Suvam Tan had the crystal shipped back to his only child on Rodia. The secret of the crystal was lost for many generations, until Suz Tanwa figured it out. Suvam Tan hid the first trove in the atmosphere of Yavin itself, a shielded cargo pod that contained five huge corusca gems. The second artifact, an ancient holoprojector with what appeared to be a pyramidal holocron, was jettisoned to the ground on Yavin 13. Suvam Tan believed that no sentient life existed on Yavin 13, but the cargo pod was discovered and maintained by a group of Gerbs. The third pod, which had become embedded in a mountain on Yavin 8, contained a set of blaster weapons from the time. The fourth pod was found on Yavin 4, and the crystal claimed it contained the battle armor of Exar Kun, the Dark Lord of the Sith who once controlled the moon. How Suvam Tan came to possess it was never discovered. The last artifact was never placed in a cargo pod, but was in Suvam Tan's back pocket when Yavin Station exploded. Suvam Tan died in the explosion, and his preserved body was discovered by Suz Tanwa, also on Yavin 22. In his back pocket, Suz Tanwa found the lightsaber he had built by himself during his stay on Yavin Station.

this man and his companion, Feraa, tried to deliver a load of spice to Vogga the Hutt on Nar Shaddaa, during the years following the Great Sith War. They had been given a detailed map of the undercity of the moon, and planned to bypass the normal security checkpoints by traveling through various vents and tunnels to reach Vogga's lair. Unfortunately, the buildings of Nar Shaddaa created enough ambient electrical interference that their hand-held maps failed to operate properly. When he got a free moment, Feraa lagged back and then set off down a side pathway to lay mines on their proposed routes, hoping to deliver his spice to Vogga and earn the Hutt's trust for himself. Suyin was badly injured when he stumbled upon the mines, then became lost and eventually died within the vents. Feraa, however, never reaped the rewards he so desparately sought, as he also became hopeless lost, and died in the vents as well. Their corpses were discovered by The Exile, shortly after the Jedi Civil War, when he was on Nar Shaddaa in search of Jedi Master Zez-Kai Ell.
this female Rodian was generally considered the most popular female member of her species, outside of the entertainment industry, during the early years of the New Republic. She had never taken a mate, although she was good friends with the Rodian smuggler Chihdo, and was the eldest living member of her clan when she accepted a position as the Chair of Xenoarchaeology at a prestigious Coruscant university. Her resume up until that point was filled with her exploits as a treasure hunter, and her twenty-year career was capped with the discovery of riches beyond anyone's dreams in the Yavin System of the galaxy. The locations of five treasure troves had been passed down from generation to generation in her family for more than 4,000 years, encoded in a seemingly worthless amulet that had been created by Suvam Tan. She discovered the information shortly after the Battle of Yavin, and worried about trying to obtain it while the Empire was still trying to force the Alliance out of the system. The first trove, hidden in the atmosphere of Yavin itself, contained five huge corusca gems. The second artifact, an ancient holoprojector with what appeared to be a pyramidal holocron, was found in the possession of a group of Gerbs on Yavin 13. The third pod, embedded in a mountain on Yavin 8, contained a set of 4,000-year-old blaster weapons. The fourth pod was found on Yavin 4, and the crystal claimed it contained the battle armor of Exar Kun, the Dark Lord of the Sith who once controlled the moon. The last artifact - Suvam Tan's handmade lightsaber - was hidden on Yavin 22. Her personal memoirs were published several years after the Battle of Endor, and attracted an audience among the students at the Jedi praxeum on Yavin 4.
the leader of the Five, Suzal delighted in taunting his victims as he tortured them. He captured Han Solo, Leia Organa, and Chewbacca when they were pursued by Vor Childermoss, and brought them all to the Hellhoop. Thinking Chewie to be a dumb animal, he placed the Wookiee in the Menagerie. There, Chewbacca freed the other captives, including the Force Demon Wuzzek. Wuzzek went crazy, exacting revenge for his imprisonment by killing the members of the Five. Suzal was Wuzzek's second victim.
this was a noted Clawdite.
this young woman was one of many natives of the planet Herdessa who didn't want the New Republic to take control of the galaxy, in the wake of the Battle of Endor. Suzu and her friend, Finn, lobbed mudballs at Leia Organa and Mon Mothma, when the two leaders of the Alliance arrived on Herdessa to discuss the planet position on a new galactic government. Leia later discovered that Suzu was one of the leaders of the peasant underground which tried to overthrow Brylin and the affluent leaders of the guilds.

this was the full name of the Venaari Strike speeder, manufactured by Venaari Enterprises during the height of the New Order. It measured nine meters in length, and required a single pilot and a gunner to operate. The pilot controlled the craft as well as the front-mounted double laser cannon, while the gunner handled a turret-mounted heavy blaster cannon. The SV-50 could carry up to ten troopers and a metric ton of cargo.
this man, a native of the planet Jomark, was a villager who got involved in a dispute with Tarm, some five years after the Battle of Endor. The dispute was mediated by Joruus C'baoth, with the help of Luke Skywalker, who had just arrived on the planet. Svan didn't agree with C'baoth's decision that he should pay Tarm his wages, and drew a slugthrower on the Dark Jedi. C'baoth countered by injuring Svan with Force lightning.
this creature was originally found on Rodia, but has since been discovered on a number of worlds throughout the galaxy. The average svaper measured up to three meters in length, although older specimens could attain lengths of six meters. They lived in the water and were known as vicious predators. Their thick, coarse scales were highly-colored, and protected the length of the svaper's body. Just behind the head, the scales were elongated into a collection of spines which protected the vulnerable gills. The mouth of the svaper is filled with long, needle-like teeth which is used to grab hold of its prey. Once it caught its prey, the svaper wrapped its muscular body around the prey and dragged it underwater to drown. It then swallowed the prey whole. Rodians often captured large svapers and used them in wrestling contests.
this voice scrambler was produced by Ulkop Securities during the height of the Galactic Civil War. Appearing to be a simple piece of jewelry, the SVC-700 blocks the reception abilities of nearby surveillance devices by emitting a low-frequency distortion field. This device does not prevent a nearby individual from hearing conversation, however, but provided a measure of security in an unknown environment.
this Imperial shuttle was built by Silvuit Corporation after the death of Grand Admiral Thrawn, in an effort to replace the aging Lambda-class shuttles. A sleek, fast, and highly maneuverable ship, the Svelte-class shuttle was beetle-shaped and coated with gloss black plating. Measuring 17 meters in length, it required a pilot and co-pilot, 4 gunners, and could accommodate 15 passengers and 50 metric tons of cargo. The wings of the Svelte-class can be raised - similar to the Lambda-class - when under attack. The shuttle is armed with a pair of double blaster cannons and a pair of laser cannons. They were also equipped with hyperdrives. Because of their black finish and unusual looks, these craft were sometimes referred to as the Vader-class shuttle, in reference to Darth Vader's black armor.

Svivren Xenomineralogy Institute
this educational facility was located on the planet Svivren, and was considered one of the galaxy's most prestigious schools of mineralogy and geological studies during the last decades of the Old Republic.
this was the native language of the Svivreni people. The vocal range required to speak the language could not be emulated by many humanoid races, including humans.
this species of stocky, furred humanoids was native to the planet Svivren. The Svivreni were known for their stubbornness, and their adherence to no-weapons philosophies. Individual Svivreni had large, equine faces, and their heads were covered with flowing black hair. Svivreni custom demanded that adults never trim their hair, as the length of an individual's hair was often regarded as an indication of fertility and intelligence. A heavy, metal ring held the hair in a loose rope. The fingers of the Svivreni were unusual in that they had three joints, providing dexterity and gripping power. As a people, the Svivreni were regarded as stubborn, and nearly impossible to influence once they made a decision. Although the Svivreni chose to remain neutral during the Galactic Civil War, many individuals served the Alliance rather than submit to Imperial control. Individual Svivreni were known to live for a 100 year or more. Note that The Last Command describes men dressed in the robes of Svivreni traders.
