Artusian crystals

Artusian crystals are crystals used to make a life form artificially force-sensitive by trapping energy gathered inside the Valley of the Jedi. They are similar to the Kaiburr Crystal found in the Star Wars novel Splinter of the Mind's Eye and were introduced to the Star Wars mythos in the LucasArts video game Star Wars: Jedi Knight II: Jedi Outcast.

Bacta

Luke Skywalker undergoing Bacta treatment.

Bacta is a healing substance available from the planet Thyferra, where two competing cartels, the Zaltin and Xucphra corporations, control almost all of the product. Bacta was invented by the insectoid Vratix of Thyferra by mixing alazhi salve with a synthetic liquid chemical called kavam. This concoction is further mixed with a colorless viscous liquid called ambori. During the Galactic Civil War, the Empire realized the importance of bacta and shut down all satellite manufacturing centers, allowing the bacta plants on Thyferra to have a total monopoly on production. It is much more available than kolto, since the Empire occupied Manaan, severing the connection between the Selkath and the Rebel Alliance. It mimics the body's fluids and helps in regeneration. It is used to help with cuts and burns as well as severe cellular damage, such as frostbite. Image File history File links Bacta_luke. ...

There are several methods of bacta application. Cuts and burns can be treated with bacta patches, small disposable patches covered in bacta gel. Those suffering from serious illnesses, or serious injuries - such as frostbite - are helped by becoming submerged in the liquid in bacta tanks, such as the one that cured Luke Skywalker in The Empire Strikes Back. Also, General Grievous was put into a bacta tank after being critically injured in a shuttle crash that eventually led to the creation of his fearsome bio-droid body.

Bacta is in many Star Wars videogames; it is often used to heal the main character in the game. This is true in Jedi Knight II: Jedi Outcast, Revenge of the Sith, Battlefront, Battlefront II and Republic Commando. Usually, the bacta is held in small cylinders, or in a robotic structure that has a seemingly endless supply. The player's custom characters in Lego Star Wars II: The Original Trilogy are normally held in bacta tanks until they are chosen the be the main player in a level.

Blue Milk

Blue Milk is a drink in Star Wars. In Star Wars Episode II: Attack of the Clones and Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hope, blue milk is shown being served on the Lars moisture farm. Blue milk is, as its somewhat basic name suggests, a dairy drink either naturally or artificially colored blue. The protein-enhanced beverage is served on planets low in natural resources—especially water. Blue milk, coming from the teats of Banthas on tattooine, is also rumored to have certain medicinal properties.

Cortosis

Cortosis is a rare mineral from the Star Wars Expanded Universe. It is a somewhat fragile light grey, chalky rock that has the strange property of being impervious to both heat and energy. It is highly resistant to blaster bolts, and cortosis alloys are capable of resisting or outright deactivating lightsabers, the only mineral to do so other than phrik. The process of mining cortosis requires the use of hydraulic jacks, since its properties rendered plasma torches useless.[1] For other uses, see Mineral (disambiguation). ...

In The Hand of Thrawn duology, Cortosis is described as causing a feedback loop with a lightsaber by "shorting out" the blade, requiring it to be reactivated (but not damaging it permanently). In the duology, Luke Skywalker and Mara Jade are in fact able to cut their way through an outcropping of cortosis by hours of repeated lightsaber strokes and reactivations. Later they encounter guard droids with an armor made up of alternating layers of cortosis and blaster-proof armor. Many fans dispute the true nature of cortosis as both definitions have been included in established canon literature. The sources that describe it as "shorting out" the lightsaber blade also describe it as a brittle mineral; bladed weapons used a cortosis alloy to incorporate the mineral's lightsaber-blocking capabilities without its fragility.

Cortosis is common in weaponry in the Star Wars universe. Many melee weapons are made from cortosis to fight lightsaber bearing enemies. In the ancient times of the Old Republic, during times of war with the Sith, it was common for fighters to carry cortosis-weave vibroblades and vibroswords, which could be used to fight Jedi and Dark Jedi in close-range combat. Sith in ancient times commonly carried a vibrosword rather than a lightsaber as it would wound opponents in a more painful manner, due to the dicing way the vibroblades cut.

In the game Jedi Outcast, Galak Fyyar processes cortosis ore into a black armor that is used by his Shadowtroopers. He also builds a suit of power armor that he uses himself. It is unknown whether all cortosis ore deposits are capable of such processing; the ore Fyyar used was smuggled from Cloud City.

Death sticks

Cilona-extract death sticks are fictional narcotic substances found in the Star Wars universe. They are relatively cheap, and are smuggled into the clubs of cities by slythmongers. With each dose the user's life is shortened, and the successive dosages take away larger chunks from a lifespan. Death sticks are seen by some as a thinly-veiled reference to cigarettes.[citation needed] 19th century Heroin bottle This article is about the drug classification. ... This article is about the series. ... Two unlit filtered cigarettes. ...


Usually, death sticks are taken as an additive to a drink and are commonly seen in small tubes of red or yellow liquid. Death sticks are banned on all republic worlds, but are sold freely on lawless worlds such as Tatooine and other Outer Rim worlds, often exported to civilized worlds such as Coruscant where they are peddled by drug dealers. The Bando Gora distributed a more potent and deadly form of death stick laced with a powerful neurotoxin until the cult was destroyed by Jango Fett.

Durasteel

Durasteel is one of the most used alloys in the Star Wars galaxy. It is a brown, heavy substance, yet very flexible and can resist heat, cold and monumental physical stress. Because of its properties, it was an important material for the manufacturing of spacecraft hulls.

Kaiburr crystal

The Kaiburr crystal is a fictional archaeological relic from the planet of Mimban. Local Mimban legend said that the god Pomojema used the crystal to heal the wounded, but in reality it was the Force that was responsible. The crimson-colored gem had the ability to enhance Force powers. The crystal's mystical powers diminish proportional to its distance from an ancient temple on Mimban. // M4-78 is the name given to a planet colonised by droids. ...


The crystal is, however, the most powerful crystal that can be used in a lightsaber.

Kolto

Kolto is a highly effective healing agent, and the competitor to the medical fluid bacta. It is applied the same way in Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic. Kolto is naturally found only on the planet Manaan, where the native Selkath mediate and sell it to both the Galactic Republic and to the Sith, not wanting to cause conflict. Kolto is found in a single, massive chasm at the bottom of the great ocean which completely covers Manaan. The main kolto deposit was guarded by a giant firaxa shark, which the Selkath named as the mythological Progenitor, legendary guardian and source of kolto itself.

During the Jedi Civil War the Republic attempted to devise a procedure which would allow them to synthesize a kolto-like substance. This was not known to be successful, but a synthetic substance with similar properties, bacta, was eventually developed independently by the Vratix of Thyferra.

Permacrete

Permacrete is a substance used to pave roads and walkways. It is also often used in the construction of buildings. It was developed at least 4000 years previous to the Battle of Yavin. Like Durasteel, permacrete is implied to be stronger than its real world equivalent. The permacrete detonator is an extremely powerful bomb, which Revan can use to help a Twi'lek with a bounty on his head escape his bounty by blowing up his entire apartment to make it look like he was blown up too in KotOR I.

In the fictional Star Wars universe, spice usually refers to an illegal narcotic or a controlled substance. This article is about the series. ... 19th century Heroin bottle This article is about the drug classification. ... Wikipedia does not yet have an article with this exact name. ...


There are several different kinds of spice in the known galaxy; they are all grouped under the spice rubric not because of any chemical derivations, but rather because they "spice up" the user in some fashion, either temporarily boosting physical strength and stamina, making the user feel invincible, or heightening awareness or creating euphoria. These "spiced" up abilities do not last long and the user eventually needs another dose of the substance and quickly becomes addicted. Euphoria (Greek ) is a medically recognized emotional state related to happiness. ... For other uses, see addicted. ...


Notable varieties

Glitterstim

One of the most common types of spice is glitterstim spice. Also known as glitterstim, it is a psychoactive substance harvested in the Star Wars universe, with both intoxicating and telepathic effects. Glitterstim is activated by light and consumed orally, crackling in the mouth in a manner much like Pop Rocks. Glitterstim is only found on the planet Kessel. A psychoactive drug or psychotropic substance is a chemical that alters brain function, resulting in temporary changes in perception, mood, consciousness, or behaviour. ...

Strawberry flavored Pop Rocks Pop Rocks (UK: Space dust) is a carbonated candy with ingredients including sugar, lactose (milk sugar), corn syrup, and flavoring. ...


Although harvesting and dealing glitterstim was highly restricted under the authoritarian rule of the Galactic Empire, the Old Republic government did not presume that it was their role to prohibit it. In fact, in Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hope, Luke Skywalker's uncle Owen preferred to tell Luke that his father, Anakin Skywalker, had been the pilot of a spice freighter, rather than admit that he had been a great Jedi Knight and starfighter pilot. One firm, authorized by Palpatine himself, was allowed to import glitterstim to Coruscant, among other worlds. The prices were so astronomical that only elites like Grand Admiral Miltin Takel could afford to buy Wendell Wright-Sims' wares. Only highly experienced smugglers, such as Han Solo, even attempted to smuggle the substance past the many Imperial patrols despite the dangers—fear of the "spice mines of Kessel" was not confined to C3PO.

The "Kessel Run" is a dangerous spice run from the planet Kessel, where glitterstim is harvested. A black hole cluster near the system is a particularly perilous stretch of space to traverse, and only Han Solo piloting the legendary Millennium Falcon could pass close enough to the cluster in order to shave the distance down to a mere twelve parsecs - the black hole also shaved a portion of the Falcon's ventral hull off, showing how narrowly Solo made it through the run.

A parsec is the distance from the Earth to an astronomical object which has a parallax angle of one arcsecond. ...


Glitterstim is actually the secretion of a crystalline, spider-like lifeform indigenous to the caves of Kessel. It must be harvested deep underground, away from any light, or else the drug will activate before it can be shipped off. Likewise, spice is usually carried in a tube with black paper on the sides, which allow for the user to peel off only the paper covering a dose of spice without activating the whole tube.


Under the influence of glitterstim, the consumer may lose control of himself, much like someone who is drunk. What makes glitterstim so widely sought after, however, is its ability to induce temporary telepathy. Lovers, warlords, and even spies have been known to make use of it. In fact, while imprisoned on Kessel, Han Solo was subjected to a mind probe by the leader of the Kessel spice mines, Moruth Doole, while Doole was under the influence of glitterstim. This article is in need of attention. ...


Han Solo began his running of glitterstim while working for the T'landa Til (relatives of Hutts) on the planet Ylesia, where the T'landa Til ran a spice market controlled by the Hutts. // Wayland first appeared in Timothy Zahns Heir to the Empire novel. ... Spoiler warning: // The Palowick are native to the swampy world of Lowick. ... The Hutts are a fictional alien race in the Star Wars universe. ...


Carsunum

Carsunum was a rare and highly illegal spice variant mined on Sevarcos. Use of carsunum granted a boost of both mental and physical abilities as well as a pleasurable sense of well-being; however, once the spice hit ended, side effects could vary from jitters to death.


The Healer's Guild used carsunum in some of its medical cures, and it is believed that carsunum was present onboard the Katana fleet, possibly contributing to its disappearance. The Katana fleet (known more eerily as The Dark Force) is a fictional starfleet from the Star Wars universe, introduced in Timothy Zahns Dark Force Rising. ...


Ryll

Ryll, mined on the planet Ryloth, is a relatively weak form of spice used to create a number of medicines used throughout the galaxy. It is also smuggled into the Corporate Sector for illegal sale to the workers. As a recreational substance, ryll can be addictive and dangerous. // A dangerous, yet lush world, Ragoon 6 was the location of a Jedi training site. ...

Possible inspiration

The concept of a spice mined underground that gives the user capabilities beyond the norm bears a remarkable resemblance to melange, the substance that drives the galactic economy in Frank Herbert's classic sci-fi novel Dune.

Stygium

Stygium was a crystal only found on Aeten II. The Galactic Republic, in 22 BBY, passed a law controlling the trade of stygium, as it was a crystal that, when used properly, could entirely cloak a vehicle. In the Galactic Republic's early years these devices were common, since Aeten II held an abundance of them. These vehicles included the Scimitar, Darth Maul's flagship, which carried an array of stygium crystals in its long prow. During the events from the capture of the Tantive IV to the Battle of Endor, Grand Admiral Martio Batch sent an Empire superweapon to Aeten II, the Tarkin.
