Aleudrupe
see Yagaran Aleudrupe. (EGC, AE)

Alexan
this was the codename of the Imperial Governor who controlled the planet Jastro III and its surrounding system during the Galactic Civil War. He used it during his intervention between his daughter and Selas Ferr, pretending to be a supporter of the Alliance. The Governor's daughter was in love with Ferr, despite the fact that he was a member of the rebel underground. Alexan provided assistance to Ferr, and agreed to help him rescue a group of rebel prisoners in return for the safety of the Governor's daughter. Neither Ferr nor the daughter knew Alexan was the Governor, but the rescue of the prisoners and Alexan's daughter was a success. Unfortunately, Alexan was severely wounded in the escape attempt, and died of his wounds. Only after the escape did Ferr and the daughter realize Alexan's true identity. (HR)

Alfestril System
Captain Nevik of the Devastator believed that suspected Alliance undercover agents were working in this system, shortly before the Battle of Hoth. His crew found this information in a coded transmission delivered to Agent Sollaine by Darth Vader himself. Sollaine executed Nevik when the Captain refused his order to travel to Corulag instead. (SWJ12)

Alfex Cargo Stacks
located Brentaal's capital city of Cormond, this collection of storage facilities was actually a front for the operations of Black Sun on the planet. Billions of tons of contraband and smuggled goods passed through the Alfex Cargo Stacks each year. (CCW)

Alfreda Goot
this Togorian bounty hunter was known for her flowing red hair, which she allowed to fall out of her blast helmet. She wore a modified version of the Mandalorian armor made famous by Boba Fett, although Alfreda's armor wasn't as sophisticated. She was one of the many beings who joined the call of Tobbi Dala and Fenn Shysa to rebuild the Mandalorian Protectors, but washed out of the program. Goot kept her armor, though, and installed a pair of heavy-duty climbing claws in the wrists. When she learned that Jabba the Hutt had placed a bounty on Han Solo's head, shortly after the Battle of Yavin, she decided to try and collect on it. She devised a plan in which she captured Leia Organa on Ord Mantell, and then forced Han to accept a race to the Dockside Cafe on Mos Eisley. The winner of the race would recover Leia alive. Han had no choice but to accept the wager, but he managed to meet up with Captain Sodarra and his team of stormtroopers. This incident wasn't in Alfreda's plans, so when Han showed up at the Dockside Cafe with an Imperial squadron behind him, Alfreda was forced into action. She shot at Han and Sodarra, and a brief firefight ensued. During the fight, Han was able to shoot Alfreda and kill her, thereby recovering Leia and avoiding capture. (SL, SWI80)

Algae Sack
airborne communities of microorganisms that inhabit Bespin's atmosphere. (JS)

Algae Sugar
this sweetener is created from the dried extracts of certain forms of algae. It is often dissolved in water and fermented, then consumed as a alcoholic beverage. (POT)

Algae Sward
found in the oceans of Calamari, this equatorial region was named for the fact that much of the planet's algae bloomed there each year. The currents of water moving through the Algae Sward were colored in various shapes of green, making the Sward appear like the surface of a greenish gas giant. The World Devastator Nullifier-5 sank beneath the ocean beneath the Algae Sward during the First Battle of Calamari, and its hulk became an artifical reef and home for many species of fish and coral. (GORW)

Algae-bread
this was a form of bread favored by Herglics. (LOE)

Algae-mat
this small micro-organism lived in the atmosphere of the planet Toydaria, and was believed to be essential to the survival of the Toydarian race. All Toydarians who traveled away from their homeworld brought a supply of algae-mat with them, which they regularly sprayed into the air of their new homes. (SWK)

Algal Stalk
this was the name given to the colonies of algae which lived in the Life Zone of the planet Bespin. Each stalk was a thick rope made up from billions of individuals, and reached down into the lower atmosphere to obtain nutrients. (WSW)

Algar Pleasure Dome
Wing Tip Theel was one of the few slicers who found a way to penetrate the central computer core of this facility, on the planet Algar. (POT)

Algara II
the primary planet in the Algaran System, Algara was a world aligned with the New Republic but run with the style of an Imperial world. The government required permits, applications, and depositions for nearly everything, and every piece of paperwork carried a fee. The populace, made up of the native Xan and a number of humans, fought against the government, which supported the New Republic, wanting to institute the basic tenets of the New Order without the bureaucracy. The normal day on Algara II lasted 24 standard hours; the year lasted 360 local days. Algara II had four moons. Note that this planet is also referred to as Algarra II. (PG2, WBC)

Algarine
the capital city of the planet Algara II. The planet's monorail hub is located here. (PG2)

Algark Stalk
this carnivorous fungus is native to the planet Gamorr, and resembles a 3-meter-tall umbrella. They grow in colonies in the forests, and when they mature, the cap of the stalk releases thousands of spores into the wind. The spores can also be released when an animal bumps into the stalk, and the animal can accidentally breathe in the spores. If this happens, the creature becomes an unwitting host for a new colony of stalks. (SWJ10)

Algunnis
this binary star, located in Trax Sector, is something of an anomaly. Scientists believed that the double star wandered through its area of the galaxy without any planets, but picked up orbital debris as it moved. At the time of the Battle of Yavin, Algunnis is surrounded by a huge asteroid belt, made up of planets and other solar bodies Algunnis had captured and crushed with its intense gravity field. (GMK)

Al'ha'gra
a Coynite phrase used to ackowledge the wishes of another being. (SWJ2)

Al'Har
this yellow star was the central body in the Al'Har System. (SS2)

Al'har I
see Haruun Kal. (SHPT)

Al'har System
this star system contained the planet Haruun Kal, which was also known as Al'har I. Because the system was located at the hub of the Gevarno Loop, the Old Republic tried to gain the support of the Korunnai in order to obtain a foothold on the traffic on the Gevarno Loop. Haruun Kal was the only habitable planet in the system, and it orbited just within an asteroid belt that was believed to have been the remnants of one or more inner planets. Beyond the asteroids, several gas giants made up the systems' outer planets. (SHPT, SS2)

Ali Alann
this youth was training as a Jedi Padawan at the same time Anakin Skywalker was a student at the Jedi Temple on Coruscant, during the years following the Battle of Naboo. Ali was a friend of Tru Veld. Unfortunately, Ali Alann was among the many Jedi who were killed during the Clone Wars. (JQ1, LJ1)

Ali Tarrak
this pirate was able to steal several TIE Defenders from the Empire in the Yrrna System. (TIE)

this Jedi Knight was known to her fellow Jedi for her incredible cooking, including wounderful blumfruit muffins. (JQ2)

Alien Combine
this underworld organization gave the impoverished aliens of the planet Coruscant a rebellious voice. Led by Dmaynel Kiph, the Combine provided a voice for aliens by acting as a sort of union for the creatures working in the Invisible Sector. They helped the Rogue Squadron pilots when they infiltrated Coruscant, highlighting the fact that many Gamorreans and Quarren were being rounded up for no good reason, and never returning. (WG)

Alien Protection Zone
an area of Coruscant's Imperial City set aside for the habitation of non-human labor during the New Order. It was set up to appease many Old Republic Senators who felt that the New Order unfairly treated aliens. (WG)

Alien Quarter
this sector of the Bonadan Southeast Spaceport II was inhabited almost exclusively by non-humans. (HSR)

Alien Underground
this small band of rebels was formed by the non-human population of the planet Desevro, and attempted to gain public awareness and sympathy for aliens who were living in virtual servitude to their human counterparts. The aliens of cities like Maslovar were forced to live in rundown slums, while the humans lived in luxury on islands in the Swamplands. The Alien Underground tried to muster public support for more rights for non-humans, but often met with stern opposition from Maslovar's thirty-seven families. (GORW)

AlienEnhancer
this was the brand name of Whappamanga's version of a VoxBox. The AlienEnhancer was not a realtime communication device, however. It allowed for the replaying of twelve standard phrases and queries, and was marketed for use by beings who could understand but not speak Basic, such as Wookiees and Gamorreans. (AEG, WOTC)

Aliha sel valle volgoth
this Old Corellian question translates to "what do you want?" (SWJ7)

Alik

Alim, Jukas
a minstrel popular in the galaxy around the time of Han and Leia's marriage. (CPL)

Alima
a native of Coruscant, Alima grew up in the Empire. He was a quick study, and progressed rapidly in the Imperial Navy. He was in command of the Star Destroyer Conquest when it leveled much of Ithor's Cathor Hills before the Ithorians surrendered. However, when Alima was given the opportunity to become the Captain of Darth Vader's flagship, Alima chose a demotion instead, realizing that Vader's quick temper often made quick work of flagship Captains. His effectiveness to the Empire was not diminished, though, and Alima was placed in charge of locating C-3PO and R2-D2 after the droids escaped from the Tantive IV. He discovered Momaw Nadon in Mos Eisley, and quickly recognized his old Ithorian nemesis. He demanded that Nadon find the droids or the Empire would wipe out his gardens. Nadon could not bring himself to betray the Alliance, and when the Millennium Falcon blasted out of Mos Eisley, Nadon told the Imperial Prefect that Alima had disregarded Nadon's information pointing to the Falcon. This was as bold a lie as Nadon had ever told, but it accomplished its purpose: the Prefect executed Alima on the spot. Nadon, adhering to the Law of Life, stole genetic samples of Alima's DNA, and cloned it when he returned to Ithor. Alima's twin sons served Nadon, as punishment for their father's actions. (TME)

Alinda Solaris
this New Republic Naval Commander was the Sector Intelligence Officer for the Kalinda System. He called the Republic's primary Naval officers together to implement Project Second Chance. (TSK)

Alis Point
this planet was the site of an Alliance base that had to be abandoned. (MTS)

Alisande
this woman was the wife of Aron Peacebringer. She was a fiery woman with a short temper, traits which Aron enjoyed. Her marriage to Aron produced a number of children, although their first-born daughter died of a mysterious disease which Aron himself managed to survive. Unfortunately, after the destruction of K'avor and the appearance of Leia Organa, Aron began to believe that Alisande was behind the plot to have him assassinated, unaware that the actual traitor was his aide, Ygal Delois. (MC53, MC54)

Alismi
this Snivvian word represented the number 9. (HNN5)

Ali-Vor
this Jedi Master was the trainer of the padawan learner Rann I-Kanu, shortly before the Battle of Naboo. Master Ali-Vor made regular trips to Naboo, to ensure that Rann was continuing to broaden his education. Shortly before the Battle of Naboo, Master Ali-Vor led a team of investigators to Naboo to locate the source of illegally-exported creatures. He dispatched a small team, including Rann I-Kanu and Galak, into the jungles to locate the possible smugglers. (IOT, GMR2)

Alkhara
a notorious bandit who roamed the Tatooine wastes, Alkhara used the B'omarr palace as his base for thirty-four years, sharing the palace with the remaining B'omarr monks while he ravaged unwary moisture farmers. He allied his band of thieves with the Sand People long enough to use their strength and ferocity to wipe out a police garrison. He then killed all of the Sand People that had helped him. It was this cruel act that created the feud between Sand People and humans, a feud which continued for centuries after Alkhara's death. When the Sand People sought to exact revenge on him, he fled deep into to the B'omarr palace. Ultimately, however, Alkhara was ousted from the palace by Jabba the Hutt, who desired the palace for his own base of operations. Alkhara fled Tatooine, and was never seen again. (DS, ISU, IWST)

Alkhara Tower
this was the name given to the nine-story tower the overlooked the palace of Jabba the Hutt, on the planet Tatooine. The tower was named for the bandit Alkhara, who usurped the palace from the B'omarr Monks who were using it as a sanctuary. Alkhara refurbished the tower during his thirty-four-year control of the palace, although he left the B'omarr circular stairway in place. The stairway was created to allow the monks a maximum of walking space in a confining area, giving them planty of room to wander around in contemplation. At the base of the tower, many meters beneath the surface, was a sacrificial pit, into which the B'omarr monks threw the brainless bodies of enlightened individuals. (IWST)

Alkherrodyne Propulsions
this corporation believed in producing products that failed in the field after a short period of time. This "programmed obsolescence" meant that customers would have to buy another of their products in a short time, ensuring future profits. This policy got them into trouble when they released the Azaria 66 unit for sale. The Azaria 66 began exploding under normal operating conditions, and Alkherrodyne was hit with a number of lawsuits. Alkherrodyne, looking for a scapegoat to avoid penalties and fines, fingered Klaus Vandangante as the engineer whose shoddy work led to the failure of the Azaria 66. They took Vandangante to court, and professionally and financially bankrupted him. This was a short-lived victory, though, for public concern with Alkherrodyne products led to poor sales and the eventual dissolution of Alkherrodyne altogether. (CSA)

Alk'lellish III
this planet, located in the Sumitra Sector, is the homeworld of the ketrann. (TB, REB)

Alku Vordu
this being served as the Senator of his homeworld, Daroon, on the Imperial Senate during the years leading up to the Battle of Yavin. Senator Vordu was on Daroon when Emperor Palpatine disbanded the Senate. Senator Vordu was targeted for capture by Falto Dragen, but a team of Alliance agents managed to rescue Vordu before he could be brought into custody. Vordu then tried to reach Bail Organa on Alderaan, to implore Organa to bring the Alliance into full rebellion against the Empire. Unfortunately, the Alliance agents arrived in the Alderaan System just as the first Death Star destroyed the planet. Although the group was captured by the Imperials when their ship was damaged in the shockwave, Vordu and the Alliance agents escaped in a stolen Assault Shuttle. (RESB)

Alkur
this desolate world is the first planet in the Lazerian System. It is an extremely hot, searing world with no natural life. (TSK)

All I Can Ever Do
Tinian I'att sang this song as a member of Sprig Cheever's band, during her escape from Druckenwell. (TFE)

All Planets Market
this large, open market was located on the planet Coruscant during the last century of the Old Republic. Found in a plaza near the Senate Rotunda, the Market provided the natives of Coruscant with a source of fruits and vegetables from planets throughout the galaxy. (LOJ)

All Planets Relief Fund
this humanitarian relief effort was considered the pet project of Supreme Chancellor Palpatine, during the years leading up to the Clone Wars. The goal of this legislation was to have the Senate create a central fund of credits that could be used to fund rescue or relief operations to member planets that had requested help from the Senate. Any world in peril could petition for funds directly to the Senate, thereby eliminating the bureaucracy that often surrounded the appropriation of funds for such efforts. After the law itself was passed, a huge ceremony was to held in which the Senators provided Chancellor Palpatine with a set of vertex crystals that accounted for all the funds collected to start the All Planets Relief effort. The ceremony was believed to have been targetted by Granta Omega and his cohorts, who were looking to achieve numerous goals. Of a secondary concern was the acquisition of funds. It was later revealed that the actual plan was the kidnapping of Chancellor Palpatine himself. They hoped to distract Coruscant security long enough to release the Zone of Self-Containment into the planet's water system, rendering the entire Galactic Senate unable to act against them. Lastly, they hoped to full discredit the Jedi Knights, who would take the blame if the ceremony was disrupted and the Senate infiltrated. (JQ9)

All Science Research Academy
this school, located on Yerphonia, was one of the most prestigious educational facilities dedicated to the study of the physical sciences. It was believed that Granta Omega graduated from the Academy, shortly before the Battle of Naboo. (JQ4)

Allara
this young girl was one of a handful of Jedi Padawans who were captured and held prisoner by General Grievous, some two years after the Battle of Geonosis. Grievous was able to convince Count Dooku that the Padawans should be used as part of a strange experiment that would marry the ability to tap into the Dark Side of the Force with Geonosian technologies. Allara was the first of the group to stand up to Grievous, using the Force to pull out one of his captured lightsabers and destroy several battle droids before Grievous grabbed her by the arm. He then forced her to watch the destruction of an Ugnaught living center as a demonstration of the power he wielded against the Padawans. (SWGG)

Allet
this name was commonly given to Quarren males, and meant "heroic". (GCG)

Alleth
a species of carnivorous plant native to the planet Ithor. Small specimens are mostly harmless, but larger plants will kill and eat small rodents. The alleth plant has broad leaves which are green at the edges and bright orange and yellow in the middle. When prey gets close enough, the alleth lashes out with its leaves, hoping to stun its prey. (TME, GOF9)

Allexi Jabbra
this was a noted figure in Anzat history. (UANT)

All-Human Free-For-All
this gladiator-like event is held regularly in the Victory Forum of the city known as Dying Slowly. In the event, four humans (the combatants are human, to make the fighting "even") are placed in the arena and ordered to fight to the death. The last combatant standing is declared the winner. The combatants are pulled from the criminal ranks, and the winner is usually given some form of freedom. In general, the three largest combatants gang up on the weakest individual, killing him before going berserk against each other. Han Solo once survived the Free-For-All, after being caught cheating at cards. This occurred when Han was a young man of seventeen. (TBH, TPS)

Allia
this Imperial Customs officer was stationed on the planet Wroona during the Galactic Civil War. (PSG)

Alliance Civil Government
one of the primary organizations which formed the Alliance to Restore the Republic, the Civil Government was headed by Mon Mothma and saw to the normal functions of a recognized government: general welfare, protection, foreign relations, and finance. (RASB)

Alliance Communications Encrypter
developed for use by the Alliance, and known as the ACE, this device allowed Alliance field agents to communicate by heavily encoding their transmissions. They were used by those agents who were working with independent spacers or privateers, allowing them to use standard communications systems while maintaining their secrecy. Most ACE units were equipped with the Code Quasar protocol. (GUN)

Alliance Credit
the official monetary unit used by the Alliance, it was exchanged on par with Imperial credits on most Alliance worlds. Other worlds would exchange 25 Alliance credits for a single Imperial credit. (RASB)

Alliance Diplomatic Corps
during the Galactic Civil War, this branch of the Alliance to Restore the Republic was charged with reaching out to other races and establishing alliances with them, thereby gaining allies in the struggle against the Empire. (SWJ1)

Alliance for the Creation of Habitable Environments
this Old Republic association regularly petitioned the Senate to set aside endangered or unusual locations, forbidding any corporate or military usage so that the natural environment could be maintained. Most often, the Alliance was acting to protect rare or endangered flora and fauna. (WOTC)

Alliance Guide for Safeworld Exploration
this document laid out the Alliance's guidelines for establishing a safeworld on an uncharted or remote planet. It covered issues such as negotiating with primitive natives and the introduction of technology to less-advanced worlds. (SWJ2)

Alliance High Command

Alliance Media Monitoring Project
this Alliance operation was developed to monitor Imperial holotransmissions and other forms of communication and glean any important or useful information from them. Among the information obtained during this operation was the location of several newly-discovered planets. (TA)

Alliance Military
the following table describes the ranking system used by the Alliance. The highest rank is at the top of each column. Because the Alliance military was made up of a variety of command structures, there isn't always a one-to-one mapping of ranks among them. (ROE)

Alliance of Free Planets
this was the name of a temporary government established by the Alliance's High Command, in the wake of the Battle of Endor. Lasting just a few months, this body helped define the goals, methods, and formation of the New Republic. (TBSB, MC88)

Alliance of Rebel Planets
another name for the Alliance to Restore the Republic. (SWTJ)

Alliance of Twelve
this was the original name of the leadership structure of the Peace Brigade, formed from twelve beings who wished to see some portion of the galaxy survive the Yuuzhan Vong invasion. Over time, more and more members were added to the Alliance, which eventually became the Ylesian Senate. (Y)

Alliance of Twelve, The
when the Peace Brigade blockaded the Yavin System, in an effort to capture the Jedi students on Yavin 4 and turn them over to the Yuuzhan Vong, they claimed to be operating under the authority of this alliance. (EVC)

Alliance Starbird
this was the name sometimes used to describe the "rising phoenix" insignia of the Alliance to Restore the Republic. (PP)

Alliance Strategy and Tactics
this series of holo-videos was produced by the Alliance for use by the teams of Starfighter Command, and detailed the various methodologies to be used by Alliance starfighter pilots against Imperial opposition. (SWJ10)

Alliance to Restore the Republic
the group of planets which opposed Palpatine's New Order. The name was often shortened to simply the Alliance, and was called The Rebellion by the Imperials. It grew out of pockets of resistance to the New Order, and was promoted early on by Mon Mothma and Bail Organa. Following Imperial attacks on Mantooine and Ghorman, the Alliance grew at a furious pace, linking disenfranchised humans with oppressed alien races. While it promoted peaceful union of all races and planets, the Alliance realized that military might would be key to the Galactic Civil War. With Mon Mothma as the Alliance's Commander in Chief, it was politically and strategically sound. Following his rescue from Moff Tarkin, Ackbar was named the Alliance's Fleet Commander. Crix Madine used his military training to become the Alliance's Special Forces Commander, while Jan Dodonna became the Starfighter Commander. In addition to these positions, the Alliance recognized the need for a Sector Commander, Fleet Intelligence Officers, Ordnance and Supply teams, and Support Services. The leaders of the Alliance recognized that, if the war came down to sheer numbers, the Empire would win eventually. The Alliance was very cash-poor, and relied on its member races and creeds to help fund its operations. Thus, the Alliance relied on cunning and stealth at first, winning small victories while planting seeds of doubt in the Imperial mind. Following the destruction of the first Death Star, the Alliance became more than a rag-tag coalition; it became a legitimate threat to the Empire. Palpatine saw this, and sent the majority of his war machine in search of the Alliance. By moving quickly and quietly, the Alliance evaded Imperial pursuit, but took severe losses in doing so. When the Emperor allowed the plans to the second Death Star to be leaked, the Alliance jumped at the chance to overthrow the Empire. The combined might of the Alliance's members, coupled with Palpatine's greed and conceit, overcame the Imperial yolk, and the heart of the Empire was killed during the Battle of Endor. Following the clean-up operations from the Battle of Endor, the leaders of the Alliance re-established the Republic. Dubbed the New Republic, it embodied the ideals of the Old Republic while meshing in the renewed spirit of racial diversity. (SWN, ESB, ROTJ, XW)
