this Imperial Sector Plexus drone ship was disabled shortly after the Battle of Yavin. The Alliance sent a team of operatives to capture the drone and steal its security codes before Imperial forces could locate it. The Alliance team managed to get to I-175 first, stealing the codes and then destroying enough of the ship to fool the Imperials into believing it was destroyed "naturally".

this was the handle of one of the many slicers who first discovered Tiny F's message of an impending attack by the Thaereian Military on the people of the Cularin System, during the early stages of the Clone Wars. I337b0i was one of the first to believe Tiny F's posting, but was under the impression that the Thaereians actually wanted the Jedi Knights, and would leave the rest of the system alone.
this was the designation of an Imperial supply depot located on Tatooine, shortly after the Battle of Hoth. It was here that Moff Sartar had been developed the bioagent Fire-Rain 3.
known simply as I-Five, this modified 3PO protocol droid was a business partner of Lorn Pavan. Lorn had purchased the droid for a paltry sum of credits, since it was being discarded by a family which had used it as a children's guardian. The children had been playing with the droid, making it jump off of roofs in order to see how high it bounced. Pavan had just lost his son to the Jedi Temple on Coruscant, and instantly bonded with the droid. Pavan gave I-5YQ an increased computing capacity and a number of other modifications, including blasters mounted in its fingertips and the removal of its life-preservation routines. To the casual observer, I-5YQ was a cobbled-together automaton, but his skills were incredibly well-rounded. I-5YQ had a sophisticated vocabulation module, which could not onlly translate and produce speech, but could emit a warbling screech that could sooth a being's nerves or shatter their eardrums depending on its frequency. The photreceptors used by Pavan were incredibly bright, and could be used in dark environments like the lights of a vehicle. I-5YQ managed to stay with Lorn through his deep depression over the loss of his son, and was eager to help him purchase an ancient Jedi Holocron from Zippa in order to earn some real credits. When the deal went bad, they found themselves trying to purchae information from Hath Monchar, but that endeavor only led them into the path of Darth Maul. The Sith lord relentless pursed them through the underbelly of Coruscant, and even the help of the Jedi Padawan Darsha Assant didn't help. In the end, I-5YQ's quick thinking nearly saved Lorn, as the droid froze them both in carbonite before Darsha sprung a trap on Maul. Maul surived, and Lorn swore to catch him. He deactivated I-5YQ and turned him over to Tuden Sal. I-5YQ had no idea exactly how long it was deactivated, but it was eventually restored to operability. After recognizing that large portions of its memory were gone or missing, I-5YQ set out to piece its history back together. It was later assigned to the Rimsoo Seven military hospital on Drongar during the height of the Clone Wars. It was on Drongar that I-5YQ revealed that Lorn Pavan had been his friend, not his master, and that he had allowed I-5YQ to develop as an equal. He had been working in the Spice Mines of Kessel before being auctioned off to a noble family on Naboo, then called up by the Republic for military duty. It was during the Separatist attack on Rimsoo Seven that I-5YQ also discovered that it had been provided with weaponry, which had been hidden within its plating and was only accessible after the droid's memory banks were forced down new survival pathways. I-5YQ realized that it was opening new circuits and dredging up new memories on its own, and vowed to uncover as much of its own programming as possible. I-5YQ reasoned that this would allow his mind, not some pre-programmed routine, to determine his ultimate fate. One of the many programs I-5YQ created was an inebriation routine, after several discussions with Den Dhur. I-5 activated the routine after he discovered that Teedle - the base's TDL-501 waitress droid - had an YX-90 drive unit installed in her frame. Teedle allowed herself to be deactivated so that the drive unit could be used to repair the base's force-dome, leaving the base without a waitress and I-5YQ without a companion. However, I-5YQ realized that Lorn Pavan had given him one last command before abandoning the droid: return to Coruscant and watch over his son, Jax. I-5YQ feared that he would have to abandon his post on Drongar to carry out this mission, but Barriss Offee stepped in to task him with carrying a message back to the Jedi Temple. Her status as a Jedi gave her the authority to remission the droid, an her offer was gladly accepted.

this Incom Corporation starfighter was designed for the Empire, shortly after Incom was nationalized. Its design and production served as a way for Incom to prove itself in the face of the defection of the team which designed the T-65 X-Wing starfighter. It was named for the Kamarian Howlrunner by its designer, Jo Ewsli. In form it resembled a streamlined T-47 airspeeder in shape, being a long, wedge-shaped craft with a rectangular midsection. At the time of its introduction, little was known about the I-7's performance in battle, although initial engagements during the struggle against the clones of Emperor Palpatine on Byss suggested that has excellent maneuverability and could take a lot of punishment. However, later engagements revealed that the ship's minimal weaponry were insufficient to protect it during prolonged dogfights. The ship measured 11.4 meters in length, and was armed with a pair of laser cannons. It lacked a hyperdrive, but could attain speeds of 1,300 kilometers per hour in atmosphere. Although the ship never found widespread use like the TIE Fighter series, it proved effective in response to the Kuat Drive Yards A-9 Vigilance Interceptor and the FreiTek E-Wing during the early years of the New Republic.

this Jawa was known for his skills at acquiring and repairing droids for later resale. Iasa was a trusted confederate of Kalit, until the Jawa leader entrusted Iasa with his credits, his mate, and a sandcrawler. Iasa never explained what happened, but when he returned to the tribe he had none of these items. He was exiled from the clan, and spent his remaining time abusing the residents of Mos Eisley. He thought about stealing Luke Skywalker's landspeeder, while the youth was in the cantina with Ben Kenobi, looking for passage to Alderaan.
this area of the galaxy is believed to have been the site of a hidden Imperial research facility. Known as To-phalion Base, the Imperials were trying to develop a cloaking device under the codename Vorknkx. Admiral Zaarin managed to infiltrate the system and steal a CR90 corvette equipped with a working cloaking device. However, the Vorknkx team had not yet figured out how to make the device stable while travelling through hyperspace. Zaarin fled into hyperspace, but the cloaking device malfunctioned as the ship made the jump. The corvette and its crew, including Zaarin, were destroyed.
this defense company, located on the planet Druckenwell, created some of the best anti-blaster energy shields during the later years of the Galactic Civil War. Run by Strephan I'att, I'att Armament was planning to develop a shielding device for stormtroopers which involved a small energy-dissipation field generator attached to the backplate. However, Imperial Moff Eisen Kerioth tried to steal the plans for himself. Moff Kerioth killed Strephan, but young Tinian I'att escaped Druckenwell with several key componets of the system, while her lover Daye Azur-Jamin destroyed the I'att research facility.
this striking woman was Strephan I'att's wife. She and Strephan took in their granddaughter, Tinian, after her parents' deaths, and raised her until adulthood. Just before she and Strephan were killed by Moff Keioth, Augusta contracted a rare degenerative disease that slowly eroded her body. Treatment was expensive, but Strephan spared no expense.
Tinian I'att's grandfather, and one of the masterminds behind I'att Armament. He and Daye Azur-Jamin developed a portable energy-dissipation field generator that absorbed an incoming blaster bolt and reduced its energy to a harmless level. He had planned to show it to the Empire's armed forces, but Moff Eisen Kerioth - who had also been working on a way to improve stormtrooper armor - decided to take the device for himself. He scheduled a demonstration, and once he was satisfied with the deivce's efficiency, he murdered Strephan and his wife, Augusta, in cold blood. He failed to execute Tinian, though, and she escaped from Druckenwell with several key components that Kerioth required.
the young heiress of the I'att Armaments fortune, Tinian was a native of the planet Druckenwell. It is unknown when or how her parents disppeared, but Tinian was raised by her grandparents, Strephan and Augusta I'att. Daye Azur-Jamin later discovered that Tinian's mother had abandoned her before disappearing.Tinian had free access to the resources of I'att Armament, and learned everything she could about the armament business. By the time she was seventeen, she could identify almost any explosive material by its smell. She was deeply in love with Daye Azur-Jamin, and they were engaged to be married when Moff Kerioth tried to steal I'att Armament's plans for a stromtrooper shielding device. Her grandparents were executed, and Daye helped her get off-planet before destroying the I'att research facility. She became a freelance bounty hunter and tracker, and eventually hooked up with the Wookiee Chenlambec. Although her family had kept Wookiees as slaves, she knew that they were an honorable race. She saved his life many times, on Silver Station and at the Kline Colony. In the years following the Battle of Endor, Tinian was reunited with Daye, and the pair rediscovered their love for each other. They were eventually married, and together had a son named Tam. Tam followed in Daye's footsteps, being Force-sensitive and training at the Yavin 4 praxeum. During the Yuuzhan Vong invasion of the galaxy, Tinian worked with the Jedi Knight Lowbacca to scout out the advancing edges of the Vong forces. They were nearly trapped in Hutt Space after the aliens discovered that their alliance with the Hutts had been compromised.

one of the nomadic tribes of humans that descended from Old Corellians on Socorro. They were the most technologically advanced of the nomadic tribes, as evidenced by the existence of the starport in Vakeyya located in the middle of their tribal holdings. They were also known to be one of the most nomadic of the four main tribes, and each family traveled a great deal of the Doaba Badlands during each generation. This wandering gave them a great deal of skill in scouting and hunting, and their ability to understand technology made them valuable guides to non-Socorrans.

this huge mollusk inhabited the swamps of Randorn 2. Its shell measured two meters across, and its tentacles added another three meters in length. Its shell was coiled and chambered, and the creature's fleshy body stuck out the open end. The Mizx who inhabit the planet believe that the ibliton was the avatar of Hershoon the Destroyer, created from Hershoon's demented soul in order to perpetuate his legacy. In reality, the ibliton predate the Mizx by several millennia, and the fossil record indicated that forerunners of the ibliton existed 600,000 years before the Battle of Yavin. Their bodies are segmented and insectoid, with armor plating covering all but the four tentacles. Their segmented legs end in sharp, knife-like talons, and allow them to walk along the ground. The ibliton display a form of raw cunning in their predatory actions, and have been known to attack explorers in ambush attacks.
this blue-skinned humanoid was a member of the Mon Calamari race. She joined Alliance as a B-wing pilot shortly before the Battle of Endor. Ibtisam had highly modified her B-Wing, but all the modifications couldn't keep her from being shot down during the second wave of Imperial attacks over Endor. Ibtisam survived, and remained with the Alliance as an X-Wing pilot. Following the recovery of the Eidolon, Ibtisam joined Rogue Squadron. When Ibtisam met Nrin Vakil, the two Rogues couldn't escape their species' continual rivalry, but never succumbed to petty bickering. Ibtisam and Nrin became fast friends, and could take up opposite sides of nearly any issue and argue about it in a vehement, yet friendly, manner. Ibtisam was killed when the Rogues were dispatched to rescue Sate Pestage from Ciutric, but were ambushed by forces led by Admiral Krennel.

The ship's remains provided a wealth of salvage for many Squib teams, until the Alliance arrived to establish Echo Base on Hoth.
this race of humanoids was distinguished by the scales which surrounded their eyes in a diamond-shaped pattern. The wealth of the tribe is held in small gemstones and beads, and woven into the hair of their queen. The tribe's wealth is immeasureable, and many of the galaxy's most corrupt beings desired to cut her hair and steal the jewels. Individual Icarii can survive dismemberment for long periods of time, and the strongest can even have their heads removed. The head could remain alive for several months before eventually dying. Shortly before the Battle of Yavin, Darth Vader ordered the destruction of the Icarii. General Nim commanded the operation, but allowed Colonel Karda to carry out the plans. Karda promptly poisoned the tribe and took Selestrine, their queen, hostage, hoping to gain profit through her ability to foresee the future. She hoped to die like the rest of her tribe, and tried to commit suicide by taking the same poison Karda had usedon her people. Karda discovered her plan, and managed to sever her head before it could be poisoned. He escaped with her head encased in a life-sustaining casket. However, after Karda killed Nim in an effort to retain possession of the head, he fled the Empire and was marked a fugitive.

this large, warm-blooded reptile inhabited the planet Hoth, living in the icy caves of its frozen surface. Note that the Alien Anthology indicates that the ice scrabbler was a mammal, not a warm-blooded reptile. These canine rodents had wide, clawed paws and drooping ears. They were distinguished by the bony ridge that ran along their spine, and could be raised and lowered by specialized back muscles. This allowed the males of the species to show off their ridges during mating season, discouraging rival males while attracting females. Ice scrabblers fed on the lichens that grew inside Hoth's icy caves, and had incredibly well-developed olfactory organs to help them sniff out food.

Ice worms created a network of burrows through the icy surface of the planet, adding to the danger of walking on open ice. Nearly extinct by the time of the Galactic Civil War, ice worms were gargantuan slugs that moved about on a series of stubby pseudopods that served to push its bulk through its burrows. The mouth of the green-skinned ice worm was filled with heavy teeth, and was surrounded by short tentcles.
