this was the name given to the prepackaged food that was developed to provide the Grand Army of the Republic with easily-transported sustenance. Species-specific forms of Ready Rations could be created, so that the ingredients included all the essential nutrients a species required. However, the reconstituted pap that formed the basis for Ready Rations was basically a carrier, and provided only the minimum of proteins and carbohydrates needed to sustain a being.

the normal space-time continuum in which all of the Star Wars galaxy resides. The normal laws of physics apply here. Realspace is coterminus with hyperspace: every point in realspace has an entry or exit point to hyperspace. Due to the physical laws governing realspace, travel is very slow compared to that which can be achieved in hyperspace.
this hyperdrive component is used to bring the power needs of the hyperdrive back into alignment with the sublight engine's needs during the reversion from hyperspace to realspace.

this was the name of one of the many barely-serviceable cruise ships maintained by Kut-Rate Kruises, during the last decades of the Old Republic. Previously known as the Stardust, the Reasonable Doubt was of Verpine manufacture, so was more spaceworthy than most of Kut-Rate Kruises' ships. The Reasonable Doubt was converted to a refugee ship during the Clone Wars, transporting beings to and from Coruscant on a regular basis. The ship's crew was fond of reminding passengers that only the most expensive accommodations received regular maintenance, and lesser rooms received repairs only if something was broken "beyond all Reasonable Doubt." Each corridor and level of the ship was denoted by a specific color, to help passengers find their way around.

this was the name given to the forms of architecture that sprang up on Coruscant, during the years following the Yuuzhan Vong invasion of the galaxy. Most of Coruscant's original structures had been utterly destroyed by the terraforming of the alien invaders, who had sought to recreate their long-lost homeworld of Yuuzhan'tar. When the Reconstruction Authority chose to relocate the seat of the galaxy's government back to Coruscant, they chose to erect sweeping buildings made of simple shapes. Construction materials were chosen to be both sturdy and natural, with stone facades fronting many buildings, in order to blend in with the underlying structures of the Yuuzhan Vong.
this was a common name among the Ortolan race.
a planet in the Hapes cluster, refered to by Ta'a Chume when she has dinner with Luke Skywalker on Coruscant.

Reciprocating Quad Blaster
known as a Cip-Quad, this unusual weapon was developed for the Grand Army of the Republic by Merr-Sonn, during the height of the Clone Wars. Designed to be an anti-personnel weapon, the Cip-Quad was worn in a special harness that fitted over the chest of a clone trooper, with the dedicated power pack attached to the back. Each barrel of the weapon was fitted with a pair of emitter nozzles, providing double-barreled fire from each round. The individual weapons could be fired on at a time, in pairs, or in a rotating pattern defined by the clone trooper. In this way, the weapon's output could be regulated, depending on the situation. The Cip-Quad was cooled by a dedicated liquid-cooling system, and targetting of the weapon was accomplished by a special heads-up display coupling the fed directly into the clone trooper's helmet. The power of the Cip-Quad was incredible, with a single weapon being capable of taking out an MTT transport with the right application of firepower.

Reconnaissance Troop Transporter
developed by Sienar Fleet Systems, this 6.4-meter-long speeder was designed for use by the Empire during the height of the New Order. The primary mission profile for the Reconnaissance Troop Transporter was to move patrols to their assigned locations, although many elite units used them for search-and-destroy missions. A twin light blaster cannon was the only weaponry on the speeder, which required a pilot and gunner to operate, and could transport up to six troopers and their gear. The pilot and gunner worked in a shielded cockpit, while the troopers were carried in "racks" on the side of the speeder. These "racks" were spring-loaded, and could open with the push of a button for ease of deployment.
this was the name used by historians to refer to the years immediately following the Galactic Alliance's victory over the Yuuzhan Vong, in which entire planets and civilizations had to be relocated or rebuilt. The Yuuzhan Vong destroyed or terraformed a large number of planets, and several races were forced to flee their homeworlds in the face of this destruction. The Galactic Alliance established the Reconstruction Authority to monitor the rebuilding of the galaxy.
this branch of the Galactic Alliance was formed in the wake of the Galactic Alliance's defeat of the Yuuzhan Vong invasion of the galaxy, to monitor and drive the rebuilding of the galaxy. The Reconstruction Authority dealt with many of the interstellar aspects of the rebuilding, including the restoration of habitable planets and the relocation of dishomed refugees and races. This put the Authority in the position of monitoring the claims of a new breed of planet hunters: corporate entities that spent more time jumping the claims of independent explorers than they did actually exploring. Many of these independent explorers were dismayed when the Reconstruction Authority mandated that, whenever two parties made claims to the same world, the party with more resources was given preference. Thus, operations like RePlanetHab only had to submit a claim to a planet at the same time as an independent operation, in order to acquire the rights to the planet. Laws and regulations such as this made many believe that the Reconstruction Authority was being bribed by the exploration corporations. The Reconstruction Authority also was placed in charge of prosecuting pirates and criminals who attempted to turn a profit from any activities that caused problems or delays in the rebuilding effort, which often put them at odds with Luke Skywalker's new Jedi order. The Jedi felt that they were being used as a police force by the Reconstruction Authority, since they were often called upon to bring in a noted pirate or crimelord. As the rebuilding effort continued, the Reconstruction Authority sought to return the seat of the galaxy's government to Coruscant, despite the damage and ecological transformation it had experienced during the war against the Yuuzhan Vong. To help speed up the process, the Authority presented Skywalker with a new Jedi Temple, hoping that he would move the new Jedi order's base of operations from Ossus to Coruscant.
this was the name of the galactic security force that was under the control of the Galactic Alliance's Reconstruction Authority, during the years following the Yuuzhan Vong invasion of the galaxy. The Reconstruction Police were charged with maintaining order across the entire scope of the Authority's rebuilding efforts, from ensuring the security of supply convoys to investigating smuggling rings. However, the ranks of this force were woefully inadequate to handle all the demands of a galaxy-wide effort, and the Reconstruction Authority often turned to the new Jedi order to assist with the policing efforts.
this star was the central body of the Recopi System.
this planet, located in the Core Worlds, was known for its unusual environment. Small island plateaus rose from poisonous oceans, and the atmosphere was laden with gaseous sulfur. It was the fourth planet in the Recopi System, and was orbited by a trio of moons. The average day on Recopia lasted 20 standard hours, and its year lasted 286 local days. Recopia was settled many thousands of years before the Battle of Yavin, when explorers eked out an existence on any remotely habitable world. The settlements on Recopia remained viable as layover points along other hyperspace routes, until advances in hyperdrive technology made it easier to travel long distances. The planet faltered until the Empire took control and subjugated the planet. During the Imperial occupation, the many city-states which existed on the planet joined together to form a loose, planetary government. After the Battle of Endor, this government quickly abandoned the Empire and joined the New Republic.
this was the name used to describe the human natives of the planet Recopia.
this New Republic armed transport ship was originally an independent spacer's craft owned by Captain Birt. Measuring 170 meters in length, the Record Time had two main cargo pods connected by a narrow tube. She had been pressed into troop transport duty when the Yuuzhan Vong invaded the galaxy, and had been "loaned" to General Wedge Antilles during the evacuation of Coruscant. The New Republic troops she carried were later dropped off at Borleias, after the planet was retaken from the Yuuzhan Vong. During the struggle to retake Borleias, the Record Time took moderate damage from plasma weapons, but arrived at Borleias and was repaired to minimal working status. The ship was then used as the insertion mechanism for the strike force - led by Luke Skywalker - that later infiltrated Coruscant. However, the ship was sacrificed as part of the mission, so that the infiltrators could arrive under cover of this ship's destruction.

Recusant-class Light Destroyer
this needle-shaped warship was developed by the Commerce Guild for the Confederacy of Independent Systems. Like other Separatist vessels, the Recusant-class light destroyer was designed to be operated by droid crews. These ships were designed and built by Hoersch-Kessel Drive and the Free Dac Volunteers Engineering Corps, and measured 1,187 meters in length. A crew of 300 droids was required to operate the vessel, although it had storage space for up to 40,000 deactivated battled droids. The primary armament of the Recusant-class destroyer was a bow-mounted heavy turbolaser cannon, supplemented by four heavy turbolaser cannons and six heavy turbolaser turrets. Defensive weaponry included five turbolaser cannons, thirty dual laser cannons, twelve light laser cannons, and sixty point-defense laser cannons. Although a single Recusant-class destroyer could subjugate a planet on its own, they were more effective in numbers. Six of these vessels could outgun a Venator-class Star Destroyer, when properly arrayed against the target. Three huge ion thrust engines, mounted in a triangle at the rear of the vessel, provided sublight propulsions, while a Class 2 hyperdrive moved the Recusant-class destroyer across interstellar distances. Interestingly enough, the Recusant-class destroyer lacked any sort of hangar or docking bays, although droid starfighters could be held in a cargo area if needed.
