this outlaw was part of the crew of the New Republic starship FarStar, working directly for Gorak Khzam. A former slave who fought her way out of indentured servitude, Scoryn found work as a security officer for a minor crimelord. She organized a mutiny against him, destroying his palace and most of its inhabitants. The crimelord put a bounty on her head, and Scoryn fled the sector. She hid out on Kal'Shebbol, and decided that crewing on the FarStar would help keep her location a secret. She was hired to keep order in the ship's close quarters, serving as Khzam's second-in-command. After the Rodian defected, Kaiya Adrimetrum promoted Scoryn into his place. She used her new position to resolve the conflict between herself and Thanis Gul-Rah, who had tried to bring her to justice many years before. She had been "saved" from capture by Imperial Captain Brannij, but held no loyalty to the Empire. Despite her freedom, Scoryn still had a deathmark on her head. She knew, though, that Gul-Rah was part of the team which murdered Kaiya Adrimetrum's husband, and kept this knowledge secret even after she joined the FarStar's crew. After the FarStar escaped from Q'Maere, Scoryn railed against Captain Kaiya Adrimetrum's plans to continue their mission, citing a mutiny was being discussed among the rest of the crew. After she promoted him to her second-in-command, Scoryn's fears were realized when Lowen Chase actually instigated a mutiny. The ship was plunged into chaos, and despite their differences, Scoryn and Adrimetrum worked together to put the rebellion down. Once control of the FarStar was restored to her crew, Scoryn was placed in charge of investigating any deaths and convening corutmartials where necessary.
this Alliance starfighter pilot was a veteran of Rogue Squadron, and served the Alliance during the attempt to rescue Han Solo from Boba Fett on the moon Gall. Will was a brash, young pilot from the planet Brentaal, and his service record at Oracle Base in Brak Sector caught Wedge Antilles' attention enough to recruit him. His X-Wing was damaged in the battle, and he actually spent very little time with the squadron. He was part of the Alliance assault team which rescued a group of slaves from mercenaries who were supporting the Empire. Among the slaves was a Chev humanoid named Pedna. She was so thankful that she adopted the surname Scotian as her own, in honor of Will's part in the rescue.

known as "Shorty" to his friends, Franklin was the only member of the Farns to have a repulsor craft. However, despite the fact that the Farns called themselves a swoop gang, Franklin owned a highly-modified Starhawk speeder bike. Franklin joined the Farns because of their good-natured approach to being a swoop gang, for he is scared of the authorities in Mos Eisley.
this experimental Qektoth Attack Cruiser was owned by the Qektoth Confederation. It measured about 103 meters in length, and was crewed by 30 officers and 10 gunners. It was hyperspace-capable, and was armed with some of the Confederations bioweapons. The primary armament was four plasma cannons and a single bio-energy array. The power requirements of the prototype bio-energy array drained much of the ship's power, so the Scourge was only effective against a single ship, and only if it had the element of surprise. After the initial blast, the Scourge was defenseless until the bio-weapon was recharged. This allowed the crew of the FarStar to defeat the Scourge in combat near Qu'mock Station.

this gang of pirates tried to claim the planet Alluuvia as their own, shortly after Radell Mining Corporation established their own claim. The Scourge then captured the Gray Griffins, an Alliance scout team dispatched to explore the planet. In reality, the Scourge had been employed by Imperial Mining, Limited, to guard the planet Alluuvia, after Chalmer Trillili made a deal with the Empire. These actions forced the Alliance to send out a team of soldiers to recover the Gray Griffins. The Scourge was defeated in the assault, and the planet was returned to Radell.
this was the Basic name of the Se'Lenti, which was the term used by the Gorothites to describe the ecological and environmental destruction wrought on the planet Goroth Prime during the Aqualish-Corellian War. The offworlders, who each paid handsomely to the P'Dar'Ken for limited and conflicting mining rights, had grown fed up with the manipulations of the Rel'Kan, J'Kek D'rith Kalama. Since neither side could control the planet, they decided that no one would control it. They sent waves of asteroids on a collisionn course with Goroth Prime, and the resulting impacts wreaked incredible amounts of damage. It was estimated that nearly five billion Gorothites died in the resulting cataclysm, with barely two million survivors going underground to escape the destruction. Because of this event, hyperbarides which had been locked into the crust of the planet were vaporized, becoming part of the atmosphere and altering the Gorothite physiology over many generations to accept its presence. The resutling atmospheric conditions had one unique side-effect: repulsorlift engines failed to work on Goroth Prime.

this Rodian was a noted pilot who worked for Plook Hartar during the height of the Galactic Civil War. Scranton Toon was chosen to participate in a race, devised by Hartar and his rival, Servid Norn, to prove which of the two had the best pilots working in their respective pirate gangs. Norn, in order to ensure that his pilot won the race, posted a bounty for the capture of Scranton Toon. The bounty requested that Toon be brought in alive, so as to maintain any semblance of a working relationship between the rival pirate gangs.

this term, used in the city of Talos on Atzerri and on most of the Free Trader Worlds, describes the practice of setting up progressively intense areas of merchants in the vicinity of spaceports. The initial area surrounding Free Trader spaceports is set up to fleece unsuspecting travelers of their credits through the use of illusory taxes and shoddy merchandise. Most experienced travellers are detected by these merchants, and are expertly routed to more intense sales areas farther from the spaceport. If the travellers still didn't part with their credits, chances are their funds will be stolen as they move further from the law enforcement present at the starport. The "scratchback" occurs when the more intense salesbeings pay a "referral fee" to those businesses close to the spaceport who pass on the more experienced travellers.
this beast, native to the planet Ansion, was named for the way it rubbed its belly against the stones, in an effort to satisfy an itch or remove unwanted parasites.

an Imperial Admiral, Screed was Palpatine's right-hand-man during the early years of the Empire and the New Order. Originally trained at the Caridan Military Academy, Screed was a no-nonsense military expert, and wore an electronic eye-patch. During the years leading up to the Clone Wars, Screed was a Judiciary for the Old Republic, and was one of the loudest supporters of Chancellor Palpatine's Military Creation Act. When Duro fell to the Separatists during the height of the Clone Wars, Screed was placed in command of the Coruscant Planetary Defense forces, as it was feared that the Separatists would use Duro as a staging point for striking at the Core Worlds. Years later, after a distinguished career in the military, Screed was assigned to take control of the fuel refineries on Biitu. While he managed to capture Mungo Baobab and install the Great Heep on Biitu, he was unprepared for the efforts of R2-D2, C-3PO, and the young boy named Fidge. This unlikely trio rescued Mungo and destroyed the Great Heep, leaving Screed with nothing to show for his efforts. This was only a temporary setback for Screed, who later survived the Battle of Endor and established a relationship with Warlord Zsinj. The relationship didn't last long, however, as Zsinj ultimately executed Screed for an undisclosed reason.

The scrub lizard is armed with spiky scales and a tooth-filled maw. When they capture their prey, scrub lizards hold it in their mouths while they shake it violently until it dies. They are ill-tempered beasts.
produced by Industrial Automaton, this series of droids was designed to clean up hazardous materials from spaceports and hangar areas. The scrubber, which resembled a squat box, moved about in search of fuel spills and other areas where potentially dangerous chemicals pooled.

this experimental bomber design was developed by Nubian starshipwrights during the years leading up to the Battle of Naboo. At twenty-two meters in length, the Scurrg H-6 resembled a flattened square, with the center spine raised slightly to provide room for the cockpit and shipboard systems. The ship was developed by the Bith engineer Jinkins, who was working for the Nubian Design Collective at the time, and was proposed for sale to the government of Naboo as a defensive craft. The original design was armed with six wing-mounted laser cannons, a turret-mounted double laser cannon, and a proton bomb launcher. A crew of five was required to fly the ship, consisting of a pilot, navigator, and three weapons officers. However, when the Naboo rejected the design as execessively armed, the Nubians scrapped the project, much to the consternation of Jinkins. The Bith then sought out Nym and arranged to steal the prototype. The ship was eventually refitted with a number of new and enhanced systems, and was renamed Havoc.
this four-legged, insectoid creature was the only indigenous form of life found on the planet Artus Prime. Living in the tunnels and caverns that riddled the planet's crust, these creatures were essentially blind, but used their other senses to track down their prey.

The males were easily distinguished from the females by the prominent curved horns on each side of thier heads. Most females had short, straight horns. Scurriers congregated in the outlying areas of cities like Mos Eisley, hunting for the insects which come to feed on the rubbish of civilization. The scurrier could also scavenge on the garbage it finds. When cornered or surprised, the scurrier could attack with a vicious bite. Large specimens of scurriers have been known to reach twelve meters in overall length.

a war droid produced by Balmorran Arms for the New Republic, it was the follow-on to the SD-9 and was used by the Balmorrans to battle the Executor Sedriss. Sedriss eventually received some of the droids in a bargain he struck with Beltane. The original design of the droid was done by Umak Leth, and incorporated heavier weaponry and more intelligent programming. The SD-10 was armed with a repeating blaster, a concussion missile launcher, and a plasma-burst cannon. It was also given advanced servomotors and gyrobalancing systems, in part to keep its massive bulk from toppling in combat.
