Needler Carbine
this form of dart carbine was developed by the Alliance to fire small darts. (SWGAL)

Needler Crab
this crab, native to the rocky reefs of Jodaka, uses a deadly poison to capture its prey. The poison is injected throug a long, biotic needle which it can expel with a short burst of air. The natural food source of the needler crab was the seagulls that search the reefs for fish, which it shot down using its poisoned darts. (SWJ1)

Needles Mountains
this was a range of low, rocky mountains located on Tatooine near the desert formation known as The Needles. (TG)

Needo Farr
this Rodian youth was ten years old at the time of the Clone Wars. Needo had been a member of the Legislative Youth Program's mock vote on the Military Creation Act, siding with those junior senators who voted in favor of the formation of the Army of the Republic. (HNN5)

Neegad 7
this was a model of tranquilizer dart gun used by pet shop owners who dealed in the sale of vicious creatures. (OE)

Neek
a small, slate-grey sauropod native to Ambria, neeks traveled in great flocks for protection and breeding as well as general companionship. Most neeks took quite readily to humanoid contact, and many beings kept neeks as pets. Explorers kept small groups of neeks for use during scouting missions, as the naturally skittish neeks would become frightened whenever impending danger was at hand, thus acting as a natural alarm system. (TOJ, TOJC, EGA)

Neek me
this Huttese phrase translated roughly into Basic as "the next time." (E1A14)

Neek Payvees
this male Gran and his brother, Reek Paynees, were noted criminals who worked for Sebolto during the years leading up to the Battle of Naboo. A bounty was issued for his capture by an anonymous individual, who simply wanted the "worthless scum" off the streets. The bounty was claimed by Jango Fett, when the bounty hunter traveled to Malastare to meet with Sebolto. (BH)

Neeka
meaning "sweet", this was one of the most common names among Rodian females. These names generally described characteristics of historical individuals, and different Rodian clans used up to three names to describe an individual. (GCG)

Neeka Sot
this female Yuuzhan Vong warrior was ostensibly under the command of Khalee Lah, although she actually answered the priest Harrar. Shortly after the taking of Coruscant, it was revealed that she had been born to a sect of assassins and trained to serve as a silent killer. (DJ)

Neek-in-the-Middle
this was a childrens' game in which two players tried to keep an object - usually a ball - from a third player, who stood in between them. (E3N)

Neekoflight
native to the jungles of the planet Neimoidia, this comical bird was distinguished by the membranous crest atop its head. Their stout bodies were dominated by their wide-mouthed heads. The call of the neekoflight was distinctive, something like a beeping squawk. (WSW)

Neela
this Rodian female was once married to Greedo the Elder, and was also Greedo and Pqweeduk's mother. Neela and her brother, Nok, realized that the Tetsus clan was in trouble after Navik the Red killed Greedo the Elder, and they established a plan to leave Rodia at a moment's notice. Their efforts paid off briefly, when they were able to flee Rodia and reach Nar Shaddaa before Navik caught them. Unfortunately, Neela was killed in an Imperial ambush on Nar Shaddaa's Corellian Sector when Greedo was just a teenager. (TME, NEGC, HFG)

Neela
meaning "gentle", this was one of the most common names among Rodian females. These names generally described characteristics of historical individuals, and different Rodian clans used up to three names to describe an individual. (GCG)

Neela, Sayer Mon
this woman once served as a barrister for the Old Republic. She was one of the more vocal opponents of Senator Palpatine's plans after his ascension to the position of Supreme Chancellor, and was one of the first individuals targeted for assassination by the new Chancellor. She fled public service, eventually joining the Alliance as a battle strategist and tactician. Her own sons had died while fighting against the Empire, and it was the least she could do to continue their legacy. She, along with her personal aide Raan Stasheff, managed to hide out on the planet Horob for a while, but their presence was eventually discovered. This proved to be detrimental to the Alliance, as the research base on Horob was close to completing work on an experimental sensor chip. Sayer Mon Neela managed to get a version of this chip before being captured by Captain Sergus Lanox, in order to preserve the work. She managed to escape the Imperials, but only after Raan took a blaster bolt meant for her, and Captain Lanox helped her reach the Starcrossed. (SWJ10)

Neelah
this was the childhood nickname of Kateel of Kuhlvult, and was derived from the way she said her name before she learned how to talk. This was the only name she remembered after her sister, Kodir, tried to wipe her memory in order to keep her own plans a secret. Kateel had objected to Kodir's plans, and her ambitious sister needed to quiet Kateel quickly. She arranged for Kateel to be kidnapped and have her memory erased, but the thugs did a very poor job of it. Kateel almost died because of the injuries she sustained. Kateel was then supposed to be shipped off by Ree Duptom, never to be seen again. After Duptom's engines suffered a partial meltdown and lef this ship adraft, Kateel was found by Boba Fett and brought to Jabba the Hutt's palace for safekeeping. Fett remained at the palace, ostensibly to remain on Jabba's payroll, but primarily to keep an eye on Neelah. He knew that she was part of the mystery surrounding Kuat of Kuat, although he wasn't sure how all the pieces fit together. When Jabba was killed near the Pit of Carkoon, and Boba Fett nearly killed by the Sarlacc, Neelah was left to wander on her own until she was discovered near the Sarlacc by Dengar and his betrothed, Manaroo. Both Fett and Neelah were taken to Dengar's hideout in the desert, where Dengar and Neelah nursed the other bounty hunter back to health. Over the next month, Neelah began to recover bits and pieces of her memory, both on her own and through Fett's own descriptions of the situation surrounding her. As they tried to unravel the mystery of Kuat of Kuat, Neelah discovered that she had a regal bearing and a strong will. When she stumbled across a picture of the scratches left by Nil Posodum in the holds of Slave I, a big piece of her erased memory flooded back into place. Posondum had scratched the logo of Kuat Drive Yards into the ship's floor, and Neelah suddenly remembered that she was a member of one of the Kuat ruling families. After being captured by Kodir near Oran-?, the rest of her memory returned. Once back at Kuat, she exposed her sister's duplicitous schemes, but couldn't save Kuat of Kuat from killing himself. She didn't want to take control of KDY, but made sure that the ruling families were kept in line. She was distinguished by her athletic build and jet-black hair, and she had a scar on her cheek from the vibroblade of a Gamorrean guard in Jabba's employ. The Gamorrean had tried to keep her from escaping Jabba's palace, but she managed to take the weapon from the clumsy beast and kill him with it. (MA, SLS, HM)

Neelanon
this planet was a member of the Old Republic. (SWDB)

Neelgaimon
a planet feared for its slave-worked sandmines. (COJ)

Neelian
this corvette was one of the many ships used by the Old Republic during the height of the Clone Wars. It was dispatched with the Ranger and its small fleet to Praesitlyn, under the command of Jedi Master Nejaa Halcyon, on the mission to retake the Intergalactic Communications Center from the Separatists. While Halcyon oversaw the operation from the Ranger, Anakin Skywalker commanded the main landing force from the Neelian. The orders from General Halcyon indicated that the Neelian was to stay out of any firefight that might occur, and to focus on getting her troops to a safe drop point. (JT)

Neelig
this was one of the most common male names used by members of the Ithorian race. Although most Ithorian names were not used for a specific meaning, historians found that this name referred to an extinct species of venomous serpent. (GCG)

Neelig
this venomous serpent, once native to the planet Ithor but now extinct, was known for its ability to get inside homes. It was a fast-moving reptile, which made it hard to catch. (GCG)

Neema
Vima-Da-Boda's daughter, Neema was as gifted with the Force as any of her famous ancestors. Vima tried to teach her, but Neema wanted to learn more than her mother's traditional teachings would provide. Neema began to experiment on her own, unknowingly delving deeper and deeper into the Dark Side of the Force. Thus, Neema's fall from the Light Side was utterly complete, beyond even Vima's ability. Vima kept trying, though, and Neema became angry at her mother's attempts. She fled her mother and became the mistress of an Ottethan warlord, in a effort to gain the aid of some friends who courted him. Neema eventually married him, to further gain aid, but he quickly tired of her and cast her out. Neema used all of her Dark Side power to strike him down, but the warlord used a primitive defense and survived the attack. He then imprisoned her, where she eventually repented her ways and tried to telepathically contact her mother, in an attempt to regain her freedom. Vima heard, but arrived too late, for the Ottethan had set her loose in the forests of his home world, where she was killed by the native rancors. (DE1, DESB)

Neen Niuv
this Sullustan criminal worked from a base hidden within Hutt Space, during the early years of the New Republic. Hiding from the Hutts aboard the modified shieldship Penumbra, Neen Niuv was too paranoid to meet with any individual one-on-one. Instead, he ordered his Twi'leki majordomo to meet with beings while Niuv himself piloted the shieldship and maintained security. (WOTC)

Neena
this former Alderaanian woman grew up in the household of Bail Organa. She displayed a large amount of musical talent, and was off-planet studying when the Empire destroyed Alderaan. This left her without any form of support, which meant that she had to break off her studies and fend for herself. She supported herself by performing aborad starliners, always trying to locate surviving members of the Organa household. Eventually, she found herself working on Adarlon, where she met Drun Carinwick and became involved with the Alliance. She became an undercover agent, posing as one of the performers aboard the Chariot in order to gather information on the Moff of the Minos Cluster. (GG6)

Neena Garnet
this famed gunslinger was killed in a duel with Uul-Rha-Shan. (CSA)

Neenoc
an Alliance YT-1300 destroyed during the Galactic Civil War. (TIE)

Neep
this term is used to describe an individual who installs computer systems. (POT)

Neer, Pirt
this youth was one of the many students of the Force who were training at the Jedi Temple on Coruscant during the height of the Clone Wars. She was one of the many students who participated in the Apprentice Tournament that was eventually won by Tallisibeth Enwandung-Esterhazy. Pirt managed to defeat Enver Hoxha after Enver's lightsaber was taken by Scout, but Pirt was unprepared for a sneak attack by Lena Missa. Lena came up behind Pirt and put her in an arm bar that forced the young girl to yield. (YDR)

Neesada
meaning "high diver", this name was common among Gungan females. (GCG)

Neesada Bari
this Gungan female was a well-respected politician, having served three times on the Rep Council. She married the entreprenuer Bullba, and was the mother of Toba. (WOTC)

Neesh
a Chattza Rodian, he and Thuku hired Spurch Goa to get Greedo killed. (TME)

Neesh

Neeta
this woman befriended Darrik, after he landed on Cloud City with Platt Okeefe. She took him to the Floating Fish casino, where Darrik hoped to meet up with Platt, and showed him the basics of playing sabacc. (IDC)

Neetakka
this Rodian clan took their name from the Rodian word for "Ultimate Hunters." The Neetakka were one of the younger Rodian clans, and spent their entire focus on honing their hunting skills. Other clans regarded the Neetakka as bloosthirsty goons, albeit excellent hunters. (SPG)

Neevlin
this Ithorian bird was known to be extremely protective of its young. (GCG)

Neevlin
this name was common among Ithorian females. Although such names do not generally have meaning, Ithorians who studied their race's history learned that the name referred to a protective species of Ithorian bird. (GCG)

Neff
this Imperial Major was stationed in the Koornacht Cluster, as part of the Black Sword Command. He survived the Yevethan takeover of the Black Fleet shipyards, and was imprisoned on Pa'aal. Neff worked with Sil Sorannan, creating pulse-transceiver chips for use in the prisoner uprising during the Black Fleet Crisis. (TT)

Neff
this woman was a member of the Cloud City Wing Guard, at the time when Darth Vader had the outpost garrisoned. She was curious about the Dark Lord, and tried to catch a glimpse of him whenever possible. (JKG)

Neffron
this man served as the Undermaster of the spaceport on Kelada, during the height of the Galactic Civil War. He was continually searching for evidence of rebel activity, hoping to earn credits and power by revealing it to the Imperial authorities. (SWJ6)

Nefra Canyons
this was a spectacular canyon located on the moon of Sulon. (RAG)

Nefta
one of the Emperor Palpatine's closest friends, and a member of the reborn Emperor's Dark Side Adepts. He soon realized that the Emperor's continual rebirth through the use of clones was not what it seemed to be. Along with Sa-Di, Nefta formulated a plan to destroy all of the Emperor's clones and trap his Dark Side energies in the netherworld forever. Following the reborn Emperor's death on Byss, both Sa-Di and Nefta began destroying the clone vats. Before they could finish the job, however, they were both killed by Sedriss. Unknown to both of them at the time, Palpatine had already entered a new clone body. (DE2)

Neftali
this frozen ball of ice is the second planet of the Socorro System, orbiting just outside the planet Socorro. Two kinds of ice from the planet were mined as a commodity by the Socorrans, who get little water from their desert planet. Pure-water ice was used in the preparation of zsajhira berry tea as well as Socorran raava, while nether ice was used as a coolant. It was believed that Neftali was forced into its wide, erratic orbit when Sokor expanded into a red giant. The new orbit, which brought Neftali near to Socorro, created a new seasonal pattern on Socorro. Like Socorro, Neftali is seismically active, and volcanic lava below the surface kept the Beija Seas liquid despite the frigid temperatures. (BSS)

Neftali'I
this was the Socorran name for the planet Neftali. (BSS)

Neftat
this Socorran term is believed to be based on an Old Corellian word which meant "home out of the desert." (BSS)

Nega, Anniha
this young man was one of Coruscant's most sought-after bounty hunters and assassins during the last decades of the Old Republic. By his early twenties, Nega had established his reputation as a hunter, although many of the hunts he included on his resume' were falsified to bolster his image. Nevertheless, he had innate skills as a tracker, and he always got his prey. Nega dressed in a suit of Ithullian war armor, and tracked his prey in a modified Z-95 headhunter he called the Flare. (CCW)

Nega-ball
a sport played with an anti-gravitational ball. (RPG)

Negate
originally defined by Arvo Norstrag as part of the Rules of the Blade, this was the most serious form of duel recognized by the Phosphura Belt Pirates. In a negate duel, two opposing factions of a pirate company find themselves at odds with each other. Their contention threatens to tear the pirate band apart, thereby threatening the company as a whole. Each faction chooses a champion and up to four aides, with the champion most often being the leader of the faction. No energy weapons were allowed, and the duel ended when one of champions was defeated. This form of duel was most often invoked to choose a new leader when a pirate gang does not have a clear successor. Sometimes, it was fought within a ring of fire, a duel sometimes referred to as the Fire Ring of Fornax. (PP, SWJ5)

Negatron
an explosive substance used in bombs and other detonation devices. (CSW)

Negatron
this was a slang term used on many backwater worlds to indicate when something was incorrect. (HSL)

Negatron Impact Charge
a form of explosive that uses a compressed, directed bundle of negatrons to cause massive amounts of damage. Doctor Arakkus used several of these charges to accelerate the gravity of a remote star by collapsing much of its core. Knowing that he was going to die of severe radiation poisoning, Arakkus set up a huge gravity well to draw in and kill others along with himself. (CSW)

Negleem, Fesjo
this Imperial research scientist was the man who determined the source of the Gray Death disease, encountered on Sedesia during the height of the Galactic Civil War. The Alliance team which was dispatched to Sedesia discovered that Negleem was formerly part of the Empire's biowarfare division, which led them to believe that the Gray Death had been engineered. Further evidence surfaced when Negleem's noted revealed that he had, in fact, created the disease, which he codenamed FNV-23, as part of the Empire's Pathogen-Based Loyalty Enhancement Program. Doctor Negleem himself was only loyal to the Empire as long as it provided him with a chance to gain more power for himself. When it was revealed that the Empire was using the Sedesians as a experiment, Doctor Negleem found passage off-planet and escaped the riots which ensued. (SWJ6)

Negna Mundro
this was a Chevin individual of some renown. (UANT)

Negollup
this Aqualish bounty hunter was typical of his species: rude, abrasive, and itchy for a fight. Known as Scrapper to other hunters, Negollup was part of a group hired by the Empire to hunt down the Alliance agents who were investigating the construction of Bissillirus Resupply Base shortly after the Battle of Yavin. (GMK)

Negotiator
this powerful stun baton was produced by the Exchange, during the years following the Great Sith War. (KOTOR2)

Negotiator, The
this was a term used during the height of the Clone Wars to describe Obi-Wan Kenobi, in reference to the way in which he used measured tactics in order to champion the goals of the Old Republic. (SWDB)

Negra Star
an Imperial frigate which assisted the Warspite in its attempt to kidnap Sullustan diplomats during the Galactic Civil War. (XW)

Negus Nigekus
one of the human settlers of New Brigia, Negus had worked his entire life on the planet in the chromite mines. He was dying from the constant exposure to chromite dust when the Yevetha arrived to execute the settlers and take control of the chromite mines during the Great Purge. (BTS)

Nehass
this was one of the largest cities on the planet Tarhassan. Known for its brightly-colored cityscape, Nehass was also the site of a prison facility controlled by Tarhassan Planetary Security. (SWI73)

NeHimmep
this was the name of a legendary Duros explorer, trader, and starship captain. (SS)

NeHimmep
this ZH-25 Questor transport was purchased shortly before the Battle of Yavin by Mirchidi NeMall. He saved for many years to buy the ship, which he named after a famous Duros explorer. (SS)

Neic Norim
this Sullustan smuggler was, at one time, a test pilot for SoroSuub Industries, on his homeworld of Sullst. An accident during one such test cost him his arm, and Neic was forced to retire. He had the arm replced, with a cybernetic prosthesis and took up smuggling. He often planted his contraband in the holds of other, unsuspecting pilots whow ere traveling to the same destination. Neic then raced to his destination to meet the ship. If the other pilot passed customs without incident, Neic sneaked aboard the ship to recover his goods. If the other pilot was apprehended, Neic remained free to continue his operations. During the height of the Galactic Civil War, he ran afoul of Intra-Corellian Collections and took refuge on the planet Selonia, where he felt right at home in the underground warrens of the Selonians. (CCW)

Neimie
this was a slang term used during the last years of the Old Republic to indicate a member of the Neimoidian race. (RCHC)

Neimodian Jakrab
this species of jakrab was one of the few mammalian herbivores that were native to the planet Neimoidia. (YDR)

Neimoidia
this planet, located in the Colonies Region, was the homeworld of the Neimoidian race. It was located less than six parsecs from Kuat, a fact that heightened the competition between the two ship-building worlds during the Clone Wars. (IG1, IWE1, SWI68)

Neimoidian
this race of aliens resembled the Duros in many physical respects, having descended from pure Duros stock when a group of colonists settled on Neimoidia around the time the Old Republic was formed, some 25,000 years before the Battle of Yavin. They had smooth, greenish skin and large, red eyes, although the Neimoidian eye had a pupil that split it horizontally. They also had a more developed cranium, which was studded with small knobs and bumps. Their mouths were down-turned, giving them a perpetual frown. On their homeworld of Neimoidia, they lived in communal hives from the time of their birth, but were given limited access to food sources during their seven years of grubhood. This helped weed out the weak individuals at a very early age, as those grubs that can't find food - or steal it - quickly died. This method of raising their young instilled a tremendous sense of greed into the young Neimoidians, but it also forced them to become organizational. Coupled with the fact that the most able Neimoidians left their homeworld to serve with the Trade Federation, the general population of Neimoidia was made up of the weakest of the Neimoidian people. In general, the Niemoidians were entreprenurial, but were also lazy cowards. They developed one of the most advanced droid technologies in the galaxy, and used automatons for everything. They developed droid chairs, droid starships, and entire droid armies. They were also very conscious of rank and position, and used all methods of clothing to describe their status. Elaborate headdresses; the cut, color, and texture of the cloth; and the collars and trim of their clothing all gave specific indications of rank and position. The Neimoidians developed the Trade Federation several decades before the Battle of Naboo, hoping to increase trade to the Outer Rim worlds while maintaining an equitable balance between the poorer worlds of the Rim and their richer, Coreward kin. When the Old Republic began taxing the trade routes between the Core and the Outer Rim, the Neimoidians and the Trade Federation were outraged, but their whining could do little to repeal it. They found an unusual ally in Darth Sidious, but the Sith Lord only used them for his own schemes. In the end, following the Battle of Naboo, the Neimoidians were disgraced on a galactic scale. (SW1, IG1, OWS, COD, EGA)

Neimoidian
this was the name of the language spoken by the Neimoidian people. (WOTC)

Neimoidian Gunnery Battalions
originally based on the planet Neimoidia, this was one of the many organic military forces that supported the Confederacy of Independent Systems during the height of the Clone Wars. They were dispatched to the planet Moorja to protect the agricultural facilities there, after the frequent ion storms rendered droid armies unusable. (SWI76)

Neimoidian Harvester Beetle
this immense, five-meter-long insect was raised by the Neimoidians on their purse-world of Cato Neimoidia. The harvester beetles were bred for their huge jaws and spined carapace: the jaws allowed the beetles to cut down trees and grains, which it then placed on its back. The spines helped to keep the cut trees and plant material atop the beetle as it moved through a grove or field, until the beetle could return to its home and unload it. These creatures moved about on four stout legs, and their flat heads were crowned with a pair of looping antennae. These antennae were used primarily as communication organs, since they exuded and decoded powerful pheromones. Communication was usually done at the hive level, with all individuals taking part in communal activities. The antennae were also used as feelers. Like most hive insects, the harvester beetle had several distinct classes, with the queen at the center of all activity. During the height of the Clone Wars, when the war came to Cato Neimoidia, harvester beetle soldiers were used as infantry against the clone troopers of the Old Republic. (LEV)

Neimoidian Home Defense Legions
this was the collection of military units assigned to protect the planet Neimoidian and its colony worlds, during the last decades of the Old Republic. Interestingly enough, the Neimoidian Home Defense Legions were made up of Neimoidian conscripts, not battle droids. (SWI71, SWDB)

Neimoidian Inner Circle
this was the primary governing body of the Neimoidian people. During the years leading up to the Battle of Naboo, the Inner Circle was led by Viceroy Nute Gunray. (COD)

Neimoidian Shuttle
resembling a giant, clawed beetle native to Neimoidia, these small transport ships were designed to carry up to five Neimoidians between their freighters and a ground-based installation. These shuttles measured just fifteen meters in length, and were piloted by two droids. Each shuttle was armed with a single blaster cannon. These craft were often referred to as Sheathipede-class shuttles. (SON, NEGV)

Neira Shai
this Yuuzhan Vong warrior, a relative of Shedao Shai, was killed when Corran Horn and Ganner Rhysode rescued the slaves being held by the Yuuzhan Vong on Bimmiel, during the early stages of the Yuuzhan Vong invasion of the galaxy. (DTO)

Nejet
this was a common name among the Snivvian race. (UANT)

Nejma
this species of Iskalonian was native to the planet Eriscot, and were known among the Iskalonians as the Honored Ones. They were extremely tall and brown-skinned, with orange hair and red eyes. The Nejma were also distinguished by a dorsal fin which ran down their backs. Although the Nejma were considered part of The School, they tended to keep themselves isolated from other Iskalonian races. The Nejma were perhaps best-known for their organic sculptures, which used living coral reefs to form beautiful pieces of art. This artwork, unfortunately, attracted both tourists and thieves, much to the dismay of the Nejma leaders. (EGA, GMR1)

Nek
this was a deity whose name was often taken in vain by the Nikto people. (SWT)

Nek
the nek, also known as the Cyborrean Battle Dog, was a predatory mammal native to the planet Cyborrea. This species of creature was originally bred by the Cyborrean people as a hunting beast, but they eventually became used during the wars which spread across the planet. The average nek stood two meters tall at the shoulder, and was armed with three rows of teeth and sharp claws on its feet. Specially-bred neks such as Battle Dogs were controlled electronically, with implants placed in the nek's brain to receive signals from a remote control device. When used in a hunt or in battle, the augmented nek was accompanied by two beings: the hunter or warrior, and the nek handler. (DE1, DESB, MBC, ANT)

Nek Bwua'tu
this Bothan was born into relative obscurity on the colony world of Ruweln, during the early years of the New Order. After being trained as an officer for many years, Bwua'tu served in the military of both the New Republic and the Galactic Alliance, surviving the Yuuzhan Vong invasion of the galaxy and earning a promotion to Admiral several years after the alien invaders were defeated. However, because he was promoted to Admiral during the relative peace that followed the conflict with the Yuuzhan Vong, Bwua'tu was not promoted on his abilities in the heat of combat. Instead, he was promoted because he was the only being to ever defeat the Thrawn Simulator. This didn't diminish his standing in the eyes of his subordinate officers, especially the Bothans among them. A distinguished looking individual, Bwua'tu was identified by his weathered face and graying chin hair. Those who didn't know him would have sid Admiral Bwua'tu was somewhat vain, surrounding himself with statuary that honored himself and his Bothan heritage. However, he was a shrewd commander who knew how to use the assets of his team. After reaching the rank of Admiral, Bwua'tu was given command of the Fifth Fleet, and was aboard the Admiral Ackbar when it was dispatched to blockade the Utegetu Nebula. A dominating figure, Bwuat'tu demanded loyalty from his commander, Gavin Darklighter, but was open to suggestions and input from other beings. Like many other military officers, Admiral Bwua'tu considered the Force to be nothing more than sorcery, until he witnessed the value of the battle meld first-hand, during the defense of the Murgo Choke against the Gorog. However, Bwua'tu and his crew were unprepared for the suicidal attack of UnuThul's frigate, which rammed the Admiral Ackbar with just enough force to open her hull and allow boarders to swarm inside. Rather than risk the lives of his crew, Bwua'tu called for all hands to abandon ship, and the Admiral Ackbar was lost to the Killiks. The mission succeeded, though, in keeping the Gorog nest ship and ten others trapped within the Utegetu Nebula. After he was recovered and taken aboard the Mon Mothma, Admiral Bwua'tu ordered all remaining ships to fire on the Killik nest ships, hoping to eliminate as much of the Colony as he could. (DN2)

NEK-01
this spy droid was employed the Hutts on Nal Hutta, tracking down those individuals who failed to repay their debts or simply angered the Hutts. NEK-01 worked with a team of droids to track down all the beings it was asked to find. A greedy droid, NEK-01 often arranged for his subordinates to be destroyed at the conclusion of their mission, in order to ensure that it did not have to share the Hutts' payments. NEK-01 was dispatched by Sottos the Hutt to bring in Deggar Feps, during the early years of the New Order. A quirk in the programming of NEK-01 - and all other droids given its programming, such as NEK-072 - caused the droid to utter the word "nebula" whenever Deggar feps' name was mentioned. Unfortunately for NEK-01, Feps managed to escape to Nar Shaddaa. NEK-01 then placed additional bounties on the heads of the mercenaries who helped him escape. (WOTC)

NEK-072
formerly designated R-DP0, this protocol droid had been reprogrammed with NEK-01's personality, during the early years of the New Order, so that it could take orders from NEK-01 and act on them accordingly. NEK-01 remained in control of the protocol droid at all times. NEK-072 was dispatched to coordinate the capture of Deggar Feps, shortly after the scout angered a Hutt crimelord. Unknown to NEK-072, NEK-01 considered it expendable, and would have destroyed it anyway in order to collect the entire fee being paid by the Hutts for Feps' return. However, NEK-072 had also been fitted with a homing beacon, and had been programmed to kill Feps at all costs. NEK-072 hoped to get a bounty hunter to destroy the Lost Lady, after learning that Feps was trying to escape Nal Hutta on the ship, in order to avoid being destroyed. This would allow NEK-072 to collect some of the reward money offered by the Hutts. Unfortunately, NEK-072 was destroyed by the freelance mercenaries who were helping Feps escape. (WOTC)
