Orange Lady Tavern
this tavern was located on the planet Corellia, during the height of the Galactic Civil War. Note that the Star Wars Adventure Journal, Issue 5 claims this tavern was located on Nar Shaddaa. (SWJ5, SWJ15)

Oran-m
this planet was the largest in the Oranessan System. It was near this world that N'dru Suhlak delivered Boba Fett back to the Hound's Tooth, after returning from Tatooine to recover the load shifter of Kuat of Kuat. (HM)

Orax
this planet was known for its wondrous mineral formations, as well as its hot springs. It was also the homeworld of the species of intelligent, crystalline lifeforms known as Shards. (AE)

Orb of Passage
this unusual stone was discovered some 4,000 years before the Battle of Geonosis by the mysterious Tet-Ami. The Orb, nothing more than a round pebble in appearance, contained the power to control time. (T13)

Orbalisk
this barnacle-like creature lived on the moon Dxun. These symbiotic parasites were protected by a hard shell, and oozed an acidic slime that they used to eat away at whatever surface they attached themselves to. Orbalisks preferred to feed on living flesh, and could infest a living sentient in minutes. These creatures were attuned to the Dark Side of the Force, having lived in proximity to Exar Kun's tomb for many millennia. Because of this, any orbalisk which attached itself to a Sith Lord or other Dark Side adept would form a mutually beneficial symbiosis. Many Sith warriors chose to use orbalisks to create a kind of living armor which grew as the orbalisk reproduced. The individual orbalisks had to be removed, or the being would be covered and consumed by the orbalisk family. However, once a stable, symbiotic relationship was established, the orbalisk armor actually helped heal wounds which its host suffered. (GMR3, DSSB)

Orbalisk Armor
many Sith warriors chose to use orbalisks to create a kind of living armor which grew as the orbalisk reproduced. The individual orbalisks had to be removed, or the being would be covered and consumed by the orbalisk family. However, once a stable, symbiotic relationship was established, the orbalisk armor actually helped heal wounds which its host suffered. (DSSB)

ORBAT
this was an acronym used by the officers of the Grand Army of the Republic to describe the orders of battle, which defined the arrangement of forces within the GAR. There were two distinct ORBATs employed by the Grand Army, one for regular forces and one for special forces. The regular army ORBAT remained virtually unchanged throughout the Clone Wars, but the special forces ORBAT was adapted to meet the changing needs of the battle against the Separatists. The regular army ORBAT originated with the Grand Army itself, and was broken down into ten Systems Armies, twenty Sector Armies, eighty corps, 320 legions, 1,280 legions, and 5,120 regiments. Each regiment was broken into four companies, each of which had four platoons, which were divided into four squads of nine troopers led by a Sergeant. The special forces ORBAT was much simpler, with the Special Operations Brigade being formed into ten battalions, 100 commando groups, and 500 companies. Each company was made up of 100 troopers divided into five troops. Each troop then had five squads of four men. Thus, at the height of the conflict between the Republic and the Separatists, the Special Operations Brigade contained 50,000 troopers, while the GAR consisted of nearly 3,000,000 soldiers. (SWI84)

Orbit Dock
any space-based landing and maintenance facility for starships. These can be small docks, catering to small freighers, or they can be huge, multiple-facility stations capable of servivign capital ships. One of the most famous docks is in orbit around Sluis Van. (HTTE)

Orbital Gun Platform
any small ship or base that can launch an attack from orbit. (SWR)

Orbital Mines
small satellites that can be placed in random orbits around a planet. They have tiny propulsion systems that keep them moving in orbit. They also have sensitive detonation systems tuned to explode upon impact. (CPL)

Orbital Nightcloak
this Imperial invention employed thousands of orbiting satellites which, when linked electronically, distorted the natural waves of light from a star and bend them in toward the satellites, effectively preventing all wavelengths of light from reaching the planet below. This caused the planet to cool quickly, and freeze within two weeks. Warlord Zsinj first put these devices to practical use. The first time, he used was them to faked the destruction of the Iron Fist at Selaggis Six. He flew the Super-class Star Destroyer into a tunnel created with nightcloaks, hiding the ship from New Republic forces while he jumped to hyperspace. After fleeing, the nightcloaks were recovered, revealing the debris from the mocked-up Second Death to portray the rubble of the Iron Fist. Later, Zsinj used them to force the inhabitants of Dathomir to surrender to him, after Rancor Base had been infiltrated by New Republic forces. The blockade was smashed by the combined forces of the New Republic and the Hapan Cluster. (CPL, IR, NEGW)

Orbital Nightcloak Mark II
this upgrade to the Imperial orbital nightcloak system used satellites which were also equipped with short-range laser cannons and targetting computers, allowing them to fire on any ship which might try to disable the satellite. (EGW)

Orbital Relay Satellite
these transmission satellites, known as ORS devices, are deployed by exploration and reconnaissance ships over specific planets. The satellites can be linked in any number and configuration, and continuously relay information to a central site or flagship. (TT)

Orbital Shipyard 1321
part of the massive starship construction facility located in orbit around Fondor, this facility was in the process of refitting the Amerce when Fondor was attacked by the Yuuzhan Vong. (JE)

Orbital Space Tug
a starship used to ferry larger ships into and out of orbital docking bays and shipyards. (CS)

Orbital Transports Union
this organization of transport companies and independent spacers was formed on the planet Corulag during the last decades of the Old Republic. A series of confrontations between the Union and Zafiel Snopps erupted during the last years of the Old Republic and continued into the New Order, as strikes were called to protest near-continual increases in berthing taxes. (CCW)

Orbitblade-2000
this zZip aerospace transport was used by many private corporations for transporting goods and personnel from the ground into low orbit. It measures 4 meters in length, and comes armed with a concussion missile launcher for defense. (CSA)

Orbiter
this was a game of chance, similar to the Jubilee Wheel, played in many casinos and gambling halls across the galaxy. (WSV)

Orbiting Shipyard Alpha
primary shipyard used by the Duro, it orbits the planet Duro about 100 miles into the atmosphere. (MMY)

Orborus
this was a common name among the Temolak race. (UANT)

Orbot
this series of protocol droids was produced by Serv-O-Droid during the last century of the Old Republic. (MBS)

Orb-spider
this spider was distinguished by the spherical web is wove to trap and ensnare its prey. (YDR)

OrC-19
this was MicroThrust's planetary com-scan unit. The Alliance used the OrC-19 in its defense of Echo Base, on the planet Hoth. (EGW)

Orcel, Batral
this young man, the son of a wealthy Cloud City family, was an Alliance supporter during the height of the Galactic Civil War. He used his position to help the Alliance in any way possible. Shortly after the Battle of Hoth, Batral was identified as an Alliance sympathizer by Justor Ferral, who captured Batral and brought him in for questioning. Batral was later rescued by the Alliance agents sent to Cloud City to transport refugees to Kaliska. (GMR3)

Orchard Crystal
this was another name for a life-crystal. (LCF)

Orchid, The
this high-class, five-star hotel was located adjacent to Aramand's restaurant, in the city of Drepplin on Glova. Like Aramand's, The Orchid was owned and operated by planetary Governor Tegist Byrg. (POC)

Orchid-bean Extract
this sweet-tasting extract was created from the beans of a single species of orchid, and was used to flavor various desserts and beverages. (DN1)

Orcim
an Imperial freighter destroyed by Keyan Farlander during his first tour of duty as an X-Wing pilot. (XW)

Ord
this prefix, which is used in the names of many modern planets, is actually an acronym used by the Old Republic to denote a world which housed a military outpost. These worlds were designated as Ordnance/Regional Depots, or ORDs. Over the centuries, the word Ord was simply used to describe the planet. (EGP)

Ord
this was a common name given to male Kel Dor. Like all Kel Dor given names, it was short enough that it didn't attract the attention of certain wind spirit, which would carry away young children with long-winded names. (GCG)

Ord Ambassador
this was Ord Mantell's most luxurious hotel. (ROM)

Ord Antalaha
this planet was colonized during the Clone Wars as an Ordnance/Regional Depot along the Shwuy Exchange. The bases were abandoned after the Clone Wars, and the colonists eventually moved elsewhere. About ten years before Emperor Palpatine initiated the New Order, Ord Antalaha started being used as a stopover by smugglers and pirates. The planet's warehouses and buildings were soon converted for use by the outlaws, and Ord Antalaha became a haven for independent spacers. The planet had three continents, all of which were covered with temperate forests and plains. (PP)

Ord Biniir
this planet was the site of a series of Galactic Civil War battles. The first was a victory by a squadron of Y-Wings against the uninspired Imperial forces of the 233rd Imperial Fighter Wing, while the second was a decisive victory by the 181st Imperial Fighter Group against the same Y-Wings. The second battle was a hollow victory for the Empire, since it took place on the same day as the Battle of Yavin. (EGV, MBF)

Ord Bueri
this planet was the site of an Old Republic ordnance and regional depot. (IWST)

Ord Canfre
this planet was overrun by the Separatists, during the early stages of the Clone Wars. (SWI65)

Ord Cantrell
this planet was considered one of the most exclusive resorts in the galaxy. After the death of Emperor Palpatine's clones at Byss, the Imperial Interim Ruling Council set up their base of operations there, in the city of De-Purteen. (CE2)

Ord Cestus
this planet, the homeworld of the X'Ting race, was originally known simply as Cestus, until the Old Republic was allowed to use the planet as a prison world. As such, the planet was designated as an ordnance/regional depot, and renamed Ord Cestus. Much of the planet's landmass was volcanically active, resulting in a landscape that was continually being reshaped by lava floes. Because of this activity, the rich stores of valuable ores and minerals found beneath its surface were continually being exposed and combined, resulting in a veritable treasure trove of raw materials. Much of the planet's surface was once covered with sand and small bodies of water, with hardy plants eking out niches by exuding acids through their roots to break down the rock and sand into essential elements. The descendents of the prisoners who were first incarcerated on the planet became farmers and settlers, using stringent irrigation techniques to grow more than two dozen different kinds of vegetables. However, the abundance of the raw materials was eventually discovered, and many of the resources proved to be important components needed in the manufacture of droids. It was on Ord Cestus that Baktoid Armor Workshop set up its first major operations, although its manufacturing facility was shut down shortly before the onset Clone Wars due to the increasing tariffs imposed on the Trade Federation for their battle droids. This tariff didn't stop the work of Cestus Cybernetics, however, which had the backing of the Confederacy of Independent Systems. During the height of the Clone Wars, Jedi Masters Obi-Wan Kenobi and Kit Fisto, along with their group of clone troopers, managed to defeat the Separatist forces that controlled the planet and the native X'Ting population. Most X'Ting lived in underground hives, preferring to remain out of sight of the offworlders who lived in ChikatLik city. Their networks of tunnels and caves were lit by a bioluminescent, white fungus, which survived by eating away at the rocks on which it lived. This served to naturally expand the tunnels and caves over time. The planet was orbited by a pair of moons. (HNN4, OWS, HIV, TCD)

Ord Dorlass
this is a little-known planet located in the Rayter Sector. (CRO)

Ord Grovner
this planet was used as a naval base for the Imperial Navy. The Crusader and the Bombard returned to the base at Ord Grovner after the defeat of the Khuiumin pirates. (SWJ6)

Ord Ibanna
this gas giant planet was home to a famous podracing course that wound its way through an abandoned, floating gas refinery. During the Clone Wars, the Jedi Order established an outpost on the planet, which served as a remote meeting place for those agents who were working undercover to infiltrate the ranks of the Separatists. (RAC, J4)

Ord Janon
this planet was once the site of base used by the Confederacy of Independent Systems, during the early stages of the Clone Wars. The Army of the Republic was able to force the Separatists off Ord Janon, freeing the planet's populace. (SWI65)

Ord Klina
a planet. (AIR)

Ord Lithone
this planet was the site of a Baktoid Armor Workshop manufacturing facility which was shut down, shortly before the onset Clone Wars, due to the increasing tariffs imposed on the Trade Federation for their battle droids. (HNN4)

Ord Mandel
another spelling of Ord Mantell. (RC)

Ord Mantell
located in the Bright Jewel System, Ord Mantell was known for its lenient banking laws and their flexibility. It was settled some 12,000 years before the Battle of Endor by Corellian colonists as an advanced military outpost for the Old Republic. Over time, more wealthy planets and better hyperspace routes diminished Ord Mantell's strategic importance, but became something of a free port for all manner of freighters and cargo ships. Despite the planet's dropping stature, it remained known as the Heart of the Bright Jewel, orbiting the blue star at the center of the Bright Jewel System. The planet was famous for its thick, outer cometary cloud, which has been the site of the Blockade Runners Derby for nearly 100 years. Two large moons and thirteen other satellites orbited the planet, and the cloudcover was tinged with pink when viewed from the planet's surface. These natural wonders made Ord Mantell something of a tourist attraction, despite its seedier side. It is also one of Thrawn's feint attacks just prior to his attack on Coruscant. It has two moons, and has a temperate environment. It claimed to be free of Imperial interest, but Han Solo discovered an Imperial fleet on maneuvers when he arrived there. It was at a starship scrapyard on Ord Mantell that Dash Rendar, working to locate information on Han Solo's whereabouts for Lando Calrissian after the debacle at Cloud City, ran into IG-88 and other bounty hunters. The bounty hunters were trying to intercept Boba Fett, who was transporting Han Solo's frozen body to Jabba the Hutt. During the Yuuzhan Vong invasion of the galaxy, Ord Mantell was approached by the New Republic to help alleviate the overwhelming rush of refugees fleeing the battlezones. Like many refugee worlds early in the war, it was eventually overrun by the Yuuzhan Vong. The planet was eventually liberated by a band of soldiers wearing Mandalorian armor. It was believed that their leader was none other than Boba Fett himself, although only Han Solo had any evidence to support this rumor. (ESB, TLC, MTS, SSE, ROM, TTSB, SL, HT, SWDB, FH3, UF)

Ord Mantellian Flutterplume
this form of display was developed on Ord Mantell. It consists of large groups of repulsorspheres which trail numerous metallic streamers. They bob and float in a complex mixture of colors and sizes, mimicking the native flutterplumes of Ord Mantell. (ROM, SWDB)

Ord Mirit
a planet in the Mirit System, located in the same sector as the Pyria and Venjagga Systems. It was the site of an Imperial base, but the planet's remote location dictated that the remnants of the Empire abandon it following the Battle of Endor. The garrison on Ord Mirit was moved to Corellia to guard the shipyards there. (XWN)

Ord Mynock
this planet was believed to have been the world on which mynocks evolved. (SWDB)

Ord Namurt
it was on this planet that Aurra Sing was captured by a group of Sennex Pirates. (OWS, ASNG)

Ord Pardron
the primary planet in the Ord Pardron system, Ord Pardron was a defensive center for the New Republic. The planet itsels was nothing more than a barren rock, with a thin atmosphere and very little gravity. However, it was rich in minerals and ores, and was extensively mined by the Old Republic and the Empire. It served as the primary defensive site for the Abrion and Dufilvian sectors (including Ando, Filve, and Crondre). The New Republic base there was attacked by the Death's Head, as part of Grand Admiral Thrawn's plans to stretch the Republic's defenses in the wake of the Battle of Bilbringi. (TLC, TTSB)

Ord Pedrovia
this was a model of podracer favored by Gasgano. The cockpit measured 2.72 meters in length, and the engines were 6.71 meters long. They were capable of speeds reaching 823 kilometers per hour. (JAS, IG1)

Ord Radama
this planet, located in the Mid Rim Territories, was the homeworld of the Devlikk race. Note that the galaxy map inside Star Wars Insider, issue 65, indicates that Ord Radama is in the Outer Rim Territories. (IWE1, SWI65)

Ord Sabaok
this planet is located in the Core, and is known for its exclusive nightclubs. (CRO)

Ord Sedra
this planet was one of the many worlds that were part of the Imperial Remnant, during the years leading up to the Yuuzhan Vong invasion of the galaxy. It was one of the first Imperial worlds to be subjugated by the Yuuzhan Vong, although their attacks were greatly aided by members of the Peace Brigade. A collaboration between Kyle Katarn, Jans Ors, and Imperial forces led by Lieutenant Pallin was able to defeat the Yuuzhan Vong and free the planet's inhabitants. (T21)

Ord Segra
this planet, located in the Doldur Sector, was run by a corrupt government. The government demanded a seven percent "bribe" from any ship which passes close to its system. Any ship that chose not to pay was immediately fired upon. (SWJ6)

Ord Sigatt
this was an Outer Rim mining world. It was here that Dexter Jettster first met Obi-Wan Kenobi. (SWDB)

Ord Simres
a planet. (SWJ14)

Ord Tessebok
Ord Tessebok was one of the first ten planets to join the Refugee Resettlement Coalition, shortly efore the Clone Wars. (HNN5)

Ord Thoden
a planet. (HNN4)

Ord Tiddell
this planet was virtually destroyed by a stone mite infestation, just prior to the Battle of Geonosis. The natives of this Mid Rim world fled in panic, leaving cities abandoned. (HNN5)

Ord Torrenze
this planet was liberated from an invasion force during the last decades of the Old Republic, in a struggle which became known as the Battle of Ord Torrenze. (DARK)

Ord Traga
this planet was the site of a possible Imperial base. (SWJ7)

Ord Trasi
this planet was the site of an Imperial shipyard during the reign of Grand Admiral Thrawn, some five years after the Battle of Endor. It was eventually retaken by the New Republic, and the planet served as the staging point for many fleet maneuvers. Foremost among them was the assembly of a task force, under the command of Garm Bel Iblis, to attack the Ubiqtorate base on Yaga Minor and recover a copy of the Caamas Document, some fifteen years after the Battle of Endor. (TLC, VOF)

Ord Varee
Ord Varee was one of the first ten planets to join the Refugee Resettlement Coalition, shortly before the Clone Wars. (HNN5)

Ord Vaug
this planet was liberated from Imperial control by the Alliance, shortly after the Battle of Endor. (PH)

Ord Vaxal
this planet served as a penal colony during the last years of the Old Republic, with facilities for psychiatric treatment as well as maximum security jailcells. About twenty years before the Battle of Yavin, a planet-wide jailbreak overthrew the current overseer and his wardens, and the criminal population took control. This anarchic form of society prevailed for many years, until the Empire took control of the planet. The lawless population was then forced to submit to Imperial rule. The planet itself was the primary world in the Vaxal System of the Inner Rim. It was orbited by a single moon. (OWS, DM106)

Ord Vorra
this female Twi'lek had a romantic relationship with Biggs Bogan, during his period of service to the Old Republic on the planet Drongar, some two years after the Battle of Geonosis. She inadvertently provided Kadir with information on Bogan's career, providing the Nediji assassin with a way to obtain a starship to flee Drongar. Like Bogan, Ord Vorra was an Adept at the game of Strag, and their love of the game brought them together. (MJH)

Ord Wylan
Lando Calrissian once won the rights to all taxi-service licenses on this planet in a sabacc match, but lost it on a bet about which liquor was being served. (SWJ5)

Ord Zat
a planet. (TBSB)

Ordaj
this gas giant was the fifth planet in the Hoth System, and was orbited by seventeen moons. (PH)

Order
a Habeen container group stationed near their research base. (TIE)

Order 37
this order was issued by Inquisitor Malorum to the Imperial forces that controlled the city of Ussa, on the planet Bellassa, about a year after the end of the Clone Wars. Under Order 37, hundreds of Ussan citizens were to be arrested and held for assassination, unless Ferus Olin turned himself into the authorities. Among those citizens targetted by Order 37 were journalists, writers, artists, weapons experts, and former soldiers and military officers. The plans for Order 37 went so far as to outline the ways in which the hundreds of bodies of those beings who were assassinated could be disposed of in secret, so as not to cause public outrage at the deaths. Obi-Wan Kenobi managed to uncover the plans for Order 37, and worked with Ferus to thwart the plans of Inquisitor Malorum. (LJ1)

Order 66
this was the secret mission that was among the myriad of orders that were driven into the training of every clone commander who served the Grand Army of the Republic during the Clone Wars. Known only to Darth Sidious, Order 66 was issued only after Sidious - known to the rest of the galaxy as Chancellor Palpatine - had destroyed Mace Windu and much of the Jedi Council. The communications issuing Order 66 were sent to clone commanders on secure Republic links, but were encrypted with codes used only by the Confederacy of Independent Systems, thereby ensuring its secrecy. Upon hearing the execution of Order 66 from the supreme ruler of the galaxy, clone commanders abandoned any loyalty to their Jedi Generals and began to open fire on them. This allowed Darth Sidious to eliminate a huge portion of the Jedi Order, and became the opening act in the Jedi Purge. Historians later debated whether or not the issuing of Order Sixty-six signalled the true end of the Clone Wars, since the order was only issued after Palpatine declared himself Emperor. Others argued that the true end came when Anakin Skywalker - now known as Darth Vader - traveled to Mustafar to eliminate the Council of Separatists. (IS3, E3N, ROF, SWI83)

Order of Dai Bendu
little is known of this ancient organization, whose name was coaxed from crumbling history disks found during the height of the Old Republic. Many historians and scholars believed that the Order of the Dai Bendu was one of the original incarnations of the Jedi Order, although no evidence was ever found to support this claim. (PJSB)

Order of Independent Trade
this was one of two primary pirate organizations which survived in the Cularin System, during the era of the Battle of Naboo. The Order allied themselves with Nirama, and were given a good deal of work smuggling personnel and supplies into the system underneath the watchful eyes of the Old Republic. (LFC)

Order of Shasa
this quasi-religious order was formed by the Selkath many generations before the Galactic civil War. They took up the mantle of protecting Manaan from attacks during the years surrounding the Great Sith War. It was believed that the Order of Shasa was formed after a group of Selkath spent several years studying with the Jedi Knights, although rumors persisted that the Selkath had actually been trained by the Sith. Regardless, the Order of Shasa protected Manaan for many generations, even during the years in which kolto production was stopped and the planet fell into disarray. Like the Jedi, new members of the Order had to train for long periods of time before being admitted as full members. In another parallel to the Jedi, each new member had to forge their own weapon - a fira - before becoming a member. Members of the Order of Shasa were sensitive to the Force, and had some minimal training in how to use it. However, this training proved woefully inadequate when Manaan was subjugated by the Empire. With the Selkath reduced to living above the water, the Order urged the Selkath to bond together against this new enemy, forming some of the first cells of resistance on Ahto City. (PH)

Order of the Canted Circle
this elitist group is one of the oldest and most exclusive social orders found on the planet Coruscant. Due to the large number of wealthy individuals who make Coruscant their home, the waiting list for admission into the Order is quite long, and the requirements quite rigid. During Emperor Palpatine's reign, the Order was primarily made up from Imperial dignitaries and high-ranking military officers. On average, only eleven new members are chosen each decade. (SWJ9)

Order of the Dark Lords of the Sith
this was the term used by the Sith brotherhood to describe those members who had been elevated to the rank of Dark Lord of the Sith. In the wake of the Battle of Ruusan, the Order only had two active members: a Sith Master and their apprentice. (E3N)

Order of the Kilmar Bange
this secret society, based in Tapani Sector, was considered harmless during peacetimes, but could be the most ferocious of enemies during war. Made up of former House Melantha members who had graduated from the Imperial Academy on Raithal, the Order also accepted associate memberships from Corulag graduates. Their mission was to ensure brotherhood among its members and to strengthen the ties between House Melantha and the Empire, especially during the height of the Galactic Civil War. Despite its pro-Imperial stance, the Order was actually started many centuries prior to the rise of the New Order as a social club. (LOE)

Order of the Sacred Circle
this was the religion that dominated the planet Monastery. The name of the Order originated from the rings of debris which encircled the planet. To the adherents of this religion, the rings represented the eternal and ever-renewing cycle of life. In all matters, the Order of the Sacred Circle tried to remain strictly neutral. During the Separatist crisis that engulfed the galaxy just before the Clone Wars, Monastery opened her ports to refugees, provided that they converted to the Order upon their arrival. During the height of the Galactic Civil War, their belief in the circle of life kept them from siding with either the Empire or the Alliance, for fear that the war would break the circle of life and doom the galaxy. The Emperor dispatched Darth Vader himself to convince the Order to side with the Empire. His arguments convinced the leader of the Order, the young Domina Tagge, to side with the Empire. Sister Domina, however, had already planned to side with Vader, in an effort to force him into a deadly duel with Luke Skywalker. The Order suffered greatly from the Imperial presence near Monastery, and when Domina Tagge stepped down as the High Priestess of the Order, the Circle of Elders agreed to ally themselves with the Alliance. (HNN5, MC34, MC37)

Order of the Terrible Glare
this ancient preisthood was based on the planet Garn. It was destroyed by the Jedi Knights thousands of years before the Battle of Yavin, but the Order left behind the Portal Desolate on Garn. Within the portal was a computer-generated image of Rur, the last of the Order's High Shamen. Rur's image was placed there to destroy the Jedi once the Order could be re-established. However, when Luke Skywalker discovered the portal during the Galactic Civil War, the computer system coudn't reconcile the facts that the Jedi were extinct and a great deal of time had elapsed. The computer syste exploded, taking with it the last remnants of the Order. (CSWDW)

Order of Tund
see Sorcerers of Tund (LCF)

Order to Reveal
this Old Republic law, when invoked, required a Senator to reveal all information requested by an investigation. The order to reveal was created to prevent a Senator from hiding information which was necessary to the resolution of a crime, especially when the crime directly involved the Senator or his staff. The need to enforce an order to reveal was required to be severe, and an ocean of paperwork had to be completed, submitted, and approved before the order could be implemented. There was only one known loophole to the order to reveal petition, which involved a Senator invoking their sitting right of refusal. While the right of refusal was legally binding, it did place the Senator in a compromising light. (JQ5)

Ordnance Lifter
this was the military version of the binary load lifter, developed by Cybot Galactic for the Old Republic during the height of the Clone Wars. Each of these bipedal automatons was equipped with a pair of heavy lifting arms, that allowed the ordnance lifter to load starfighters and other warships with missiles, and other ammunition. The central processing unit of the ordnance lifter was located in the rear of the droid, in a position to offset the heavy weight of the ordnance it moved. (SWI81)

Ordnandell
a planet. (RPG)

Ordo
this clone of Jango Fett was trained as an ARC Trooper on the planet Kamino, during the build-up to the Clone Wars. Several months after the Battle of Geonosis, Ordo - known most often by his callsign, N-11 - was assigned as an assistant to Kal Skirata. During the mission to free Senator Meena Tills from a group of Korunnai terrorists led by Nuriin-Ar, Ordo was forced to use an EMP charge to disable all holocameras in the immediate area, after the violent death of Jedi Master Kaim. (SWI81)

Ordo, Canderous
this man was one of the Mandalorian Mercs who rose to power following the Great Sith War, some 4,000 years before the Battle of Yavin. He was also a born leader with considerable skills as a tactician and solider, and his battles plans were instrumental in winning many battles against the Old Republic. After the Mandalorian Wars saw the defeat of his people at the hands of the Old Republic, Ordo took his combat skills and went into business for himself. For many years, he worked for the crimelord Davik Kang on Taris, using the distraction of the Great Sith War to continue his missions without worrying about being captured. When the Sith destroyed the Endar Spire over Taris and then blockaded the planet, Ordo was among the millions who were eager to flee Taris. As luck would have it, he was contacted by Carth Onasi and Bastila Shan, survivors of the Endar Spire who needed to get off Taris and hunt down Darth Malak. He managed to acquire the droid T3-M4, after he had been ordered to retrieve it by Kang, and used the droid's skills to slice into the Taris defense networks. Using stolen codes, the band managed to escape Taris just before the Leviathan destroyed it. Ordo remained with the Republic agents, searching for Darth Malak and the Star Forge. In the wake of the Jedi Civil War, Revan ordered Canderous Ordo to restore the Mandalorians to their former glory. From a base on Dxun, he assumed the position of Mandalore and eventually built up a small army of supporters. When The Exile arrived on Dxun in search of the surviving Jedi Masters, Ordo pledged his support to The Exile, and was instrumental in the destruction of Darth Traya and her students. Canderous Ordo was voice by John Cygan for the video game Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic. (KOTOR, SWDB, SWI80, KOTOR2)

Ordomire, Lucky
this forger was well-known to the underworld elements of Lumchugger's Hub, on Bescane. He maintained the BanthaQuik!

Ore Mite
this was a form of insectile creature that fed on raw ores. They were considered pests by miners and asteroid prospectors, since a swarm of ore mites could devour a vein of ores in no time. (EVR)

Ore Sucker
a small pirate ship developed to steal the cargo from the huge Colossus Wasp transport ships. These ships roam the Stenness System, looking for Wasp transports. When they find one, the ore suckers latch onto the Wasp's exterior, and bore into the hull with a drill or laser. Once the hull has been breached, the ore suckers open their own cargo bay hatches and lock them over the breach. The pilots then blow the other cargo bay doors on the ore suckers, creating a vacuum in their own holds. This vacuum sucks the cargo out of the Wasp's holds and into the ore sucker's holds. The pirates who used them had to be quick, so that the stolen cargo didn't simply fly out through their second open portal. (TOJ)
