this Thalassian slave ship measured 90 meters in length, and was armed with a pair of quad-laser cannons. (GG9)

Y-4 Raptor
a transport ship built by Incom, the Y-4 was designed for military duty. It was introduced to the Empire shortly before Incom was nationalized, and so never gained much popularity due to its assumed "Rebel" creators. Following the Battle of Endor, the Imperial Warlord Zsinj began using these ships as part of his Raptors squadron, thus the nickname Raptor became added to the Y-4 designation. At just under thirty meters, the Y-4 is a small ship. Its design is simple: a thin, deep body with basic engines and weapons. The unique thing about the Y-4 is its S-Foil-controlled wings, which aid the ship when dropping off cargo. Though small, the wings greatly stabilize the transport during military missions. The primary role of the Y-4 is the ferrying of troops and supplies between starships. It can accommodate up to forty troops and four AT-ST scout walkers. These can be delivered to docking bays or ground sites by via three folding access ramps on the left side. The military version of the Y-4 comes with a pair of forward-mounted laser cannons and a recessed concussion missile launcher. A civilian version of the Y-4 was eventually produced, lacking the weaponry, armor plating, and enhanced engines of the military version. (CPL, EGV)

this version of the Aratech Conjo Y41-C2LC fighter was similar in every aspect to the base fighter, but was armed with two additional laser cannons. (TBSB)

Y41-C2LC Fighter
this was the model number of Aratech's Conjo fighter. (TBSB)

this was the model number of Aratech's Conjo Trainer, designed to be a bit slower than the base Y41-C2LC fighter. (TBSB)

this silver-plated automaton was one of the many protocol droids used by the Metatheran Cartel, during the Cartel's attempt to take control of the economy of the planet Cularin, shortly after the Battle of Naboo. Y4-E was later captured by the underground resistance that tried to thwart the Cartel's efforts. (EOS)

this was a series of Thalassian cargo haulers. The ship was notable for the fact that its sublight drivers were mounted behind the central group of drive nozzles. (SOP)

this was a mining vessel that was produced during the last years of the Old Republic. The Y-8 was unusual in its shape, which resembled an upright blade. The main body was made up of a central spine that contained the cargo pods and a downward stabilizing fin, with the forward-jutting cockpit mounted atop the fuselage. The Y-8 was designed to carry the mining crew and ship's complement, as well as large amounts of raw material. It was also well-armed, since the Y-8 was marketed for the mining of valuable ores, and was also equipped with a group of mining lasers and tractor beams. For most missions, the Y-8 was self-sufficient, especially when used for mining asteroids and other orbital bodies. (SWGAL)

Y-85 Titan
this trapezoidal dropship was developed by Incom Industries to transport AT-AT walkers into battlezone. Each Y-85 could move four AT-ATs and four AT-STs into position. Many considered the Empire's use of the Y-85 Titan as a necessary evil, since it was a group of Incom engineers who provided the plans to the T-65 X-Wing starfighter to the Allaince. (IWST)

ya Sethes
this muscular, gray-haired Adumari woman was the General in command of Yedagon's armed forces, during the civil war against the nation of Cartann. (SOA)

a Carrack-class cruiser used by the Alliance, it was destroyed during the Galactic Civil War. (TIE)

this Senali girl was the first-born child of King Meenon. She was sent to the planet Rutan on her seventh birthday, as part of a generations-old agreement to maintain peace between the two worlds. When Prince Leed of Rutan refused to return to his homeworld at the age of sixteen, King Frane of Rutan threatened to throw the ten-year-old girl into prison until Leed returned. When Leed refused, Frane placed Yaana in jail until the Jedi Knights, Qui-Gon Jinn and Obi-Wan Kenobi, tried to convinced Frane of Leed's desire to remain on Senali. The Jedi staged a daring rescue of Yaana, in order to ensure the girls safety. After negotiating a new peace between King Frane and Meenon, Drenna agreed to remain on Rutan so that Yaana could be with her family. (SP)

one of the family names used by the Bothan people, it literally meant "shipwright". Although it referred to starship builders, the name may have had earlier, more terrestrial origins. (GCG, WOTC)

this young Jedi Knight trained with Klin-Fa Gi and Bey Gandan, and was part of the team which traveled to Wayland to discover what the Yuuzhan Vong were doing on the former Imperial world. Yabaley was attracted to Klin-Fa, a fact that rankled Bey's conscience. When they trio was captured by the Yuuzhan Vong, Yabaley died during an extended session of torture and interrogation. (SWI64)

a slang term used by Lando Calrissian to refer to bounty hunters. (SE)

when Klin-Fa Gi killed a Yuuzhan Vong warrior in battle of Bonadan, she claimed that his death avenged Yabeley. Uldir Lochett never understood who or what Yabeley was. (EOV, GMR9)

the primary planet in the Yablari System, Yablari is the homeworld of the Anomid race. A severe, planetwide drought forced the Anomid to begin colonizing other worlds in the system. (GG12)

a planet, Yabosta was orbited by the moon Skalokor. (GMR10)

Yacha neechu!
this Huttese command translated into Basic as "Take him/them away!" (GMR5)

Yada Munda
this was a noted figure in Aqualish history. (UANT)

Yadag dakl, ignot!
this was one of the most venomous curses used by the Yuuzhan Vong. (NJOSB)

this was the Jawa word for a rodent. (T10)

this female Jedi Master was a member of the same species as Yoda. She was just 477 years old at the time of the Battle of Naboo, and was a member of the Jedi Council. Some 200 years before the Battle of Naboo, Yaddle was apprenticed to Polvin Kut. They were dispatched to eliminate the threat of the Advozse warlord Tulak on the planet Koba. Polvin Kut was killed in the struggle, and Yaddle was imprisoned by Tulak. Yaddle was buried alive, and only her discipline and attention to the Force kept her alive. She grew strong with the Force, never succombing to anger or hatred, and was eventually freed when seismic activity split Koba's crust. The natives revered her, but were totally unprepared for the appearance of Tulak's son, Kalut. Her control of the Force allowed her to defeat Kalut and finish the work she and Polvin Kut started. Upon her return to Coruscant, Even Piell proposed her promotion to Jedi Master and appointment to the Jedi Council. One of her foremost critics was, in fact, Yoda himself, who believed that the promotion of a padawan to Jedi Master was againts the Jedi Code. However, Yoda was the lone dissenting vote when her membership to the Council was debated, and her membership was approved. She was known on the Council for her patience, compassion, and wisdom, and was one of the few Jedi entrusted with the knowledge of mortichro. She took a delight in the training of the younger students, often overlooking their pranks and hiding sweets in their pockets. One of Yaddle's apprentices was Empatajayos Brand, and she dedicated much of her time on Coruscant to heading up the Jedi library. Seven years after the Battle of Naboo, Yaddle led a mission to the planet Mawan, with Obi-Wan Kenobi and Anakin Skywalker assisting her. Their mission was to negotiate the establishment of a new government there, following a decade of civil war. Unknown to the Jedi, however, was the fact that the most powerful crimelord on Mawan was actually Granta Omega. In the guise of Striker, Omega hoped to lure a member of the Jedi Council to Mawan and kill them, in an effort to impress the Sith Lord he believed to be gathering power in the galaxy. Omega captured Anakin and held him hostage, demanding a meeting with Yaddle. She agreed, and discovered that Omega was planning to unleash an explosive filled with dihexalon gas. Rather than allow the weapon to be exploded in the city of Naatan, Yaddle drew the weapon to herself and wrapped it in a cocoon with the Force. The weapon imploded, rather then exploded, as Yaddle drew the dihexalon into herself. The deadly toxin took its toll, however, and Yaddle was killed instantly. Her body disappeared as Anakin watched, but the population of Mawan was safe. Unfortunately for Anakin, the young apprentice felt deeply saddened by her death, a death that he felt responsible for and should have prevented. (SW1, IG1, SWDB, T5, JQ6, JQ7)

this Trandoshan served as the Personnel Liaison for the Gadrin police force, during the early years of the Clone Wars. (LFCW)

this was the name of a noted Spiner individual. (UANT)

this Huttese word translated into Basic as "meal." (GMR5)

Yag Shushin
this Givin male was enslaved by the Witches of Dathomir during the era following the Battle of Naboo. He befriended Quinlan Vos, and helped the Jedi Knight discover the true nature of Zalem and the Witches. Yag then stole one of the Witches' subterine vehicles, only to find himself face to face with Ros Lai. She explained that she needed his help to rescue Quin, and Yag agreed to help. They managed to use the subterine to infiltrate Zalem's camp and retake Vos, who had learned from the Kwa that he was now the guardian of the Star Chamber on Dathomir. Yag was later killed when Quin and Ros Lai tried to follow Vonya inside the Star Chamber. They craft was shot, and Yag was caught in the explosion of the command console. Every bone in his exoskeleton was crushed, and his internal systems failed. His death saved Quin and Ros Lai, though, allowing them to continue their pursuit of Vonya. Quin later avenged Yag's death by killing Vonya. (SWIE)

this Yuuzhan Vong word translated into Basic as "what," and was most often used to ask another individual to clarify what they had just said. (SBS, NJOSB)

Yaga Minor
the planet from which the Outbound Flight Project was launched during the Old Republic, Yaga Minor was the sight of an Imperial Ubiqtorate base and shipyard following the Battle of Endor. According to Rebellion, Yaga Minor is located in Sesswenna Sector. The Ubiqtorate base was housed in an orbital space station which had a unique design. Extending outward from the main station were a pair of corridor tubes that connected to outrider computer stations. This design, according to Imperial documents, allowed civilians to have access to information stored at the base, while keeping them out of the military section of the station. Grand Moff Tarkin maintained an extensive database at Yaga Minor, and wanted to ensure that his private files were never found. The Imperial presence on Yaga Minor remained strong until the New Republic stormed the Ubiqtorate base in hopes of finding a copy of the Camaas Document. After the battle, in which the Republic's forces were thwarted until Talon Karrde showed up with a fleet of his own, the planet was turned over to the Imperial Remnant. The planet was then placed under the control of Moff Kurlen Flennic, who protected it jealously during the early stages of the Yuuzhan Vong invasion of the galaxy. After the lossed of Bastion and Muunilinst, Moff Flennic feared for his holdings. (DFR, TLC, REB, SOP, VOF, TTSB, FH1)

this is the native race of the planet Yaga Minor. They were considered a commodity by the Empire, which genetically altered groups of Yagai to be strong and to survive in harsh atmospheres. They were also quite intelligent, and were often used as starship mechanics. There are two distinct subspecies of Yagai: the intelligent stock, and the moronic drones. The drones are easily distinguishable by their purple skin and wild, yellow hair, and each Yagai had a pair of nine-fingered hands. All of the fingers on one hand were mutually opposable, giving the Yagai extremely variable dexterity. The intelligent Yagai regard the drones as non-citizens. (SOP, TTSB)

Yagaran Aleudrupe
this plant produced a spray berries each year. When fertilized with the nutrient-rich slime exuded by the Morodin, these berries can be crushed and used as a catalyst in boosting blaster firepower. The enhanced berries rival spin-sealed tibanna gas in their ability to increase blaster firepower. The Krish Gamgalon herded Morodins into his aleudrupe fields by hunting them on safaris, until his operation was exposed by Talon Karrde. (SWJ2, WOA33)

Yagaran Four
this group of bounty hunters plied the Outer Rim during the early years of the New Order. They employed the Krish known as Maniac as their chief mechanic. During the hunt for a quarry near Elin Roe, Manic tinkered with the drive systems of the gang's YT-1300 freighter to help increase its power and speed. The improvements resulted in disaster, as the hyperdrive exploded upon activation, killing the Yagaran Four. The resulting explosion spread a cloud of radioactive dust over the fifth moon of Elin Roe. (CRO)

homeworld of the Givin, this is a small, dense planet with three moons. The moons exert intense gravitational forces on the small planet because they orbit in the opposite direction from Yag'Dhul. Yag'Dhul itself has a retrograde rotation of 175 standard hours, while the moons orbit the planet once every 53 standard hours. Thus, a month on Yag'Dhul is actually 122 hours shorter than its day. This sets up huge tidal forces that continually shifts its oceans and atmosphere from one side of the planet ot the other. This results in the displacement of the atmosphere and water around the planet, creating pockets of hard vacuum in certain areas. Many of the planet's lifeforms have simply survived by traveling with the tides, while the Givin have adapted by growing flexible exoskeletons that protect them from vacuum. They also developed hermetically-sealed cities that ensured a constant atmosphere,even during periods of low pressure. During the Yuuzhan Vong invasion of the galaxy, Nom Anor infiltrated the ranks of the Givin and planned to subjugate the system for use as a staging area from which to attack the Core. These plans were nearly thwarted when Corran Horn, Anakin Solo, and Tahiri Veila obtained control of the Stalking Moon and got inside the Yag'Dhul defenses. Eventually, though, the Yuuzhan Vong defeated the Givin resistance and took control of the system. Their control of the system was short-lived, however, as New Republic forces eventually defeated the alien invaders and recaptured the planet. (TLC, GG4, BW, EVR, FP)

Yage, Arien
this woman was a Captain in the Imperial Navy, serving under Gilad Pellaeon during the early decades of the New Republic. Captain Yage was in command of the Star Destroyer Widowmaker during the early stages of the Yuuzhan Vong invasion of the galaxy. She was also one of the few officers who gladly accepted the assistance of the Republic after the Imperials were soundly defeated at the Battle of Bastion. After B'shith Vorrik and the Yuuzhan Vong were defeated at the Battle of Borosk, Captain Yage volunteered to escort Luke Skywalker's mission into the Unknown Regions to locate the mysterious planet of Zonama Sekot. Grand Admiral Pellaeon agreed to the proposal, and the group set out for the Unknown Regions. When Zonama Sekot was finally located, Captain Yage and the Widowmaker remained in orbit to protect against any possible Yuuzhan Vong attack. That attack came shortly before Nom Anor sabotaged Zonama Sekot's hyperdrives, when a small ship arrived to recover the Executor. The small ship evaded the Widowmaker's sensors and slipped to the planet's surface to recover Nom Anor before fleeing. Captain Yage was unable to stop the ship, and was unprepared for Sekot's reaction to the sabotage. When the living planet suddenly jumped into hyperspace, the Widowmaker was caught in its wake. Both the planet and the ship disappeared, although Zonama Sekot eventually reappeared near Coruscant. No sign was found of the Widowmaker, and Captain Yage's fate - along with that of her entire crew - remained a mystery. (FH1, FH2, FH3, UF)

Yagen, Bovo
this Imperial Captain defected from the planet Coruscant during the Galactic Civil War and fled to the Corellian Sector with his wife and four boys. They ended up on a jungle planet just off the Corellian Trade Route, where they eventually befriended the native humanoids and developed a decent-sized outpost. The natives accepted them into their society, and eventually named the planets and asteroid belt in their system after him and his family. (CTD)

Yagen, Framesk

Yago, Mellor
this young man served as a Lieutenant in Rendili's homeworld defense force during the height of the Clone Wars. He was adamantly loyal to Rendili, in seeming opposition to his commanding officer, Captain Jace Dallin. Dallin had served the Old Republic during the Stark Hyperspace War, and questioned his government's choice in joining the Confederacy of Independent Systems. Lieutenant Yago had no such division of loyalties, and engineered a mutiny aboard the Mersel Kebir when Dallin tried to turn his fleet of Dreadnaughts over to the Republic. He had Dallin and Jedi Master Plo Koon arrested and thrown into the brig, to be held as hostages until the Republic's forces withdrew from Rendili, or until Separatist reinforcements could arrive. However, when Saesee Tiin refused to leave Rendili, Yago threatened to kill Plo Koon and the other hostages. When the reinforcements arrived, the Republic's warships opened fire on them all, working to ensure that the Rendili fleet did not fall into the hands of the Separatists. Yago planned to try a linked hyperspace jump away from Rendili to escape, despite the problems encountered by the Katana and her fleet. After Anakin Skywalker disabled his flagship, Yago found himself face-to-face with Dallin and Koon once more, after they were freed by Obi-Wan Kenobi and Quinlan Vos. Yago attempted to fight his way free, but Dallin shot him dead before he could flee. (RDR)

this was a common name among the Zeltron people. (UANT)

this slug-like alien race was similar in appearance to the Hutts, but were more insectoid. They had six thick arms which they used to move about, and their scaled skin was a dirty green in color. Four thin horns sprouted from the tops of their heads, and their pointed snouts were filled with rows of serrated teeth. It was believed that the Yahk-Tosh were resistant to the mind tricks of the Jedi Knights. (SWS)

Yahrkar, Vohrkrewel
this man worked for Jorkatt the Render during the early years of the New Republic, buying and selling information with the Empire and the Republic. He was wanted in every system in the sector. He was a tall, thin man with bird-like features. He often used the alias of Krovas to perform his business. (POC)

Yak Face
the derogatory term for the Yarkora race. (ROTJ, CCG7)

a race of almost-human cyborgs, altered centuries ago by their neighbors, the Arkanians, to be smarter via cyborg implants. They are expressionless beings, having been significantly altered by the technology which dominated their bodies. It is believed that they were originally humans or humanoids from a planet near Arkania, and that the technologically advanced Arkanians took pity on them. To help them along, the Arkanians began implanting cybernetic replacements in their brains, hoping to give the Yaka heightened intelligence. The procedures worked, and the average Yaka of the modern era is vastly more intelligent than they appear. (DE1, EGA)

this was the native language of the Yaka race. (EGP)

Yakaro, Macy
this rotund man was one of the many independent pilots who made a meager living the Moddell Sector of the galaxy, during the early years of the New Republic. He supplemented his income by working as a tour guide on the Forest Moon of Endor, offering his services to the visitors who passed through Salfur's Trading Post. He sold his services to a group of treasure-seekers who were following the story of the pirate ship Skewer, in search of the Ayrou Tessent, but he was captured by a tribe of renegade Ewoks who captured him and cooked him alive over an open fire. (GMR9)

this Imperial-class Star Destroyer was the flagship of the New Republic's Fourth Battle Group's Task Force Apex. It was under the command of Farley Carson during the Black Fleet Crisis. During the Battle of N'zoth, the Yakez was caught between two Yevethan Aramadia-class thrustships. They combined their firepower at the ship's forward hull. When the bow shields collapses, the Yakez's forward weapons hold ignited. The ship was broken in two by the explosion, and all hands were lost. (TT)

Yakun Kwaad
this Yuuzhan Vong male was a Shaper who was accused of practicing heretical activities aboard the worldship Baanu Kor, during the travel period between galaxies. Yakun and Nen Yim had tended the mernip breeding pools aboard the ship, until Yakun was captured and taken away. (EVC)

this Huttese verb translated into Basic as "to move." (GMR5)

Yal Phaath
this male Yuuzhan Vong was the Master Shaper who was picked by Warmaster Tsavong Lah to investigate the source of a Jedi Knight's strength. Yal Phaath was distinguished by the yellow maa'its which he had implanted in place of his natural eyes. Master Phaath also oversaw the Shapers who were sent to Myrkr to work on discovering the Force-nullifying abilities of ysalamiri. Later, Yal Phaath was in command of the defenses aboard the worldship Baanu Rass, protecting the development and production of voxyn. He hated the fact that the Warmaster did not provide any form of defense for the voxyn breeding facility, especially after the Jedi were able to destroy the queen and escape. Yal Phaath was eventually transferred back to Coruscant, which had been reformed into a simulacrum of long-lost Yuuzhan'tar, where he was placed in charge of resolving the strange changes which were occurring as the World Brain made subtle alterations. (EVC, SBS, FH3)

Yalandross PowerMasters
this weapons manufacturer specialized in a variety of vibrobladed daggers and knives, including a series of double-bladed weapons. (FOP)

this planet was once the homeworld of primitive species that was not ready to be integrated into galactic society. For this reason, the Jedi Master Brodel Kel Verdox harnessed the power of the planet to create a cloaking device, hiding the entire planet from discovery. However, some ten years after the Battle of Endor, the planet was discovered by Imperial forces that were allied with the Disciples fo Ragnos. Jaden Korr was dispatched to the planet to ensure that the cloaking device didn't fall into the wrong hands. He managed to defeat the guards and destroy the device, ensuring that the technology was never put to another use. (JKA)

this New Republic heavy cruiser was the flagship of the fleet assembled to attack the Yuuzhan Vong at Corellia. The plan was to have the Yald, under the command of Commodore Brand, lead a mixed fleet of Republic and Hapan ship to Corellia and attack the Vong before they could launch their own assault. The entire plan hinged on the Vong attacking Corellia, which turned out ot be a feint when they actually took Fondor. In the wake of the Battle of Fondor, the Yald was recalled to the planet Calamari, to serve as part of the planet's primary defense net. (JE, UF)

an industrial planet. (AIR)

this was one of the tallest peak found in the Dashta Mountains, located on the planet Ord Cestus. Because the top of Yal-Noy was often covered in snow, runoff created a swift-flowing river that brought water to the lower plains of the Zantay Hills. Thus, the hills were among the greenest areas found on the otherwise desert-covered planet. (TCD)

Yamele Polidor
this female Rindian was a scientist who knew Jenna Zan Arbor. Yamele was invited to Jenna's party at Didi Oddo's café, and knew most of the guests except for Reesa On and Dobei Eranusite. (EVE)

this was one of the many unusual lifeforms that evolved on Coruscant, in the wake of the Yuuzhan Vong invasion of the galaxy. Yammal-jells lived in the open bodies of water that were found on the planbet, and became one of the favorite prey of the hawk-bat population that survived the devastation of the planet. (DN1)

this Yuuzhan Vong warship served as Nas Choka's flagship, during the aliens' invasion of the galaxy. (JE)

Yammka's Mount
this was one of the many Yuuzhan Vong warships which was called to the planet Coruscant - remade into a new version of the planet Yuuzhan'tar - just before the alien invaders launched their all-out attack on the Galactic Alliance's stronghold on Mon Calamari. The Yammka's Mount was bedecked with the pennants of Warmaster Nas Choka, who commanded the assault fleet from ths ship. However, before the assault force could complete its mission, Zonam Sekot suddenly reappeared near Coruscant, and the fleet was called back to Coruscant to form a protective barrier between the Yuuzhan Vong capital and the living planet. This gave the Galactic Alliance an opportunity to launch a counter-attack, this time aimed at recovering Coruscant. During the battle, Nas Choka and the Yammka's Mount were ordered by Supreme Overlord Shimrra to escort a Slayer coralskipper from its position in orbit around Coruscant to Zonama Sekot. This particular coralskipper had been the solo survivor of the force which was present on Caluula when the Alpha Red virus was unleashed on the planet. Shimrra hoped to turnt he tables on the Galactic Alliance by using any surviving virus to destroy Zonama Sekot. The mission took its toll on the Yammka's Mount, as it was pounded mercilessly by the forces of the Galactic Alliance. (UF)

this Yuuzhan Vong bio-creation was known among the elite warrior class as the war coordinator. The creature, with its bulbous head and array of tentacles, served to coordinate all activities of an invasion fleet toward a single goal. The creation of the first yammosk took many centuries, but in the end the creature proved to be a valuable asset. It could coordinate landing operations, starfighter battles, and even full-scale seiges. It had a virtually limitless supply of energy. The creature's only solid bodily structure was a single tooth, hidden with boneless flesh. The tooth was used to bury itself into a landing area, and was driven against the ground with incredible force. Eventually, it could break through even rock and ice, and the yammosk would then insinuate itself into the created crevasse and begin coordinating the invasion forces. Any enemy ships that got too close to the yammosk's position would be rendered inoperable by the intense energy the creature used to bind the Yuuzhan Vong forces together. Like most Yuuzhan Vong technology, the yammosk kept track of other Yuuzhan Vong starships by tracking their unique gravitic signatures. The only drawback of the yammosk was that, if it were ever severely injured or destroyed, the Yuuzhan Vong war force would be without any guiding force and would collapse in chaos. A Yuuzhan Vong prefect or other ranking official could commune with the yammosk by gently touching the thick, blue vein that ran between its eyes. Once the yammosk was entrenched in its new position, it could spawn a second yammosk to assist in the establishment of the next Yuuzhan Vong base. The parent yammosk would form a mental link with the offspring, transferring all knowledge it would need to act as the next war coordinator. However, the immature yammosk still had to grow strong, and the Yuuzhan Vong discovered that they grew faster if they were in contact with living bodies. Thus, the Yuuzhan Vong began capturing beings and forcing them to remain in the nutrient vats with the yammosk, giving it ready contact with life-energies. One additional benefit of this contact was that the yammosk could sense the presence of the Force, which allowed the Yuuzhan Vong to recognize the presence of a Jedi Knight in their midst. After the New Republic began to search out and destroy the yammosk at the heart of an invasion fleet, the Yuuzhan Vong began to train their pilots to act without a yammosk's guidance, giving the pilots more authority over the actions of their ships in case a yammosk was destroyed. (VP, JE, DJ, DW, UF)

Yammosk Action
this was the codename used to describe any attempt by the Jedi Knights to capture a live Yuuzhan Vong yammosk, as part of the Eclipse Project. (SBS)

Yan Vrees
this male Gran was known con artist who made a name for himself as a card shark and smuggler in the Outer Rim Territories during the years leading up to the Battle of Naboo. He once lost a large sum of credits to Jabba the Hutt in a sabacc match, then skipped out before paying off his debts. Jabba issued a bounty for his capture, which Jango Fett managed to claim when he located Yan Vrees on Malastare shortly after the Battle of Naboo. (BH)

this young woman, a native of the planet New Apsolon, was a medic who worked for the Rock Workers some twelve years before the Battle of Naboo. Yanci's skills were quite good, and it was her presence in the Rock Worker camp that helped Obi-Wan Kenobi recover from a leg wound, during the Jedi's efforts to discover Balog's true motives. Yanci was in love with her fellow Rock Worker Kevta, and was jealous of the bond Kevta shared with Bini. When Balog's forces attacked their base of operations, Yanci was dispatched to ask the Jedi for help. While she was away, the entire group of Rock Workers was killed, including Bini, Kevta. Yanci decided to remain at the outpost and bury the dead, and eventually moved to the city to live with the Workers there. She later obtained information on Oleg's activities, and provided it to Obi-Wan. (DOH, CTV)

an Alliance YT-1300 that fled the Battle of Hoth, but was later captured in the Javin Sector. (TIE)

this man was a miner who worked on Ord Cestus during the years leading up to the Clone Wars.

this Naboo girl was the youngest of Queen Amidala's handmaidens. Like the other handmaidens, Yane' was chosen by Captain Panaka for her strength, loyalty, and resemblance to Amidala. Yane' and Sache', being the youngest of Amidala's handmaidens, were left behind when the Queen traveled to Coruscant to petition against the Trade Federation's blockade of Naboo. (SW1, JQA)

Yanglan, Denno
a native of the planet Cridark II, this Imperial Medical Supervisor was in charge of the interrogation of Orn Belden, during the Bakura Incident. Despite his professional attitude, Yanglan regularly sent a portion of his paycheck back to his family in order to help them survive.

this deadly creature was a source of food to the Yuuzhan Vong. A ridge of eight-centimeter-long spines ran along its dorsal surface, each spine a hollow needle used to inject poison into its prey. The tail of the yanskac was also used as a weapon, whipping the barbed tip at its target. The chelipeds of the yanskac were used to grip its prey and tear away hunks of flesh to consume. Yuuzhan Vong warriors often consumed yanskacs as a source of nourishment as well as a trial which proved the warrior had come a long way toward perfection. The yanskac flesh was seared over an open flame, while the innards were discarded. Once the flesh inside the chelipeds swelled and burst the shell, the meat was ready to eat. (SBS)

this race of lupine beings was created by DakrStryder to serve as warriors and guardians. One of the most successful races engineered by DarkStryder, the furred Yapi eventually developed their own civilization, which became infinitely divided amongst itself. Factions of Yapi warriors formed and dissolved, each with loyalty or hatred toward DarkStryder, and virtually every tribe of Yapi was at war with one other tribe at any time. Despite their warring nature, Yapi maintained a period of peace among the tribes to trade and exchange information, as well as to form and eliminate tribes. The average Yapi was highly superstitious, holding the connection to the Ta-Ree energy in awe, as a power reserved only for the shaman of each tribe. When the crew of the FarStar arrived on Kathol to defeat Imperial Moff Sarne and DarkStryder, the Yapi willingly lent their assistance.
