Well since we have nothing on enemy fighter craft...

581px-Immobilizer_schem.jpg

As well as gravity wells, the Sienar design was also equipped with 20 quad laser cannons for short range combat against other ships. The Interdictor's hull was nearly identical to that of the Vindicator-class heavy cruiser and could support several additional weapons depending on mission profile. Enemy fire was absorbed by more than a dozen shield generators.

Interdictors also took some moments to activate their projectors after arriving from hyperspace, and once activated, the massive simulated mass they created made the ship very cumbersome to maneuver: there was rarely enough time for an entire fleet to make the jump to hyperspace before a newly-arrived Interdictor activated its projectors, but if a fast ship such as a starfighter could avoid enemy tractor beams, it could often escape to the edge of an active gravity well, and then escape.

While the Sienar Immobilizer 418 was the most common design of Interdictor, other ships made use of gravity well projectors, most notably a number of variants of the Imperial-class Star Destroyer. During the Galactic Civil War, ships like Dominator and the command ship used by Darth Vader immediately after the Battle of Yavin mounted large projector globes in the manner of the smaller cruisers.

I know we have some slang terms.. but does anyone know a good site, besides Wookiepedia, that lists some Star Wars terms, like regular everyday terms?

That's good and all, but it's not really what I was looking for, lol.

I meant more like regular terms... the SW versions for things in our world (refresher, turbolift, viewport, etc., etc.)

Haven't checked lately, but as far as I remember, they don't have a terms page, no.

Oh well. It's not too important. I just wanted to be as true to SW canon and terminology as possible.

Anyway, I have a new question... Chicken, what species is Admiral Besev? I don't remember it ever saying.
