VADER, Clan (Sandeman):
first clan founded after Overthrow.
Named for the Saga's Black Lord, it is
the arbiter of the most delicate
questions of honor. It specializes in energy weapons, the development of one
of which, the lightsaber, required controlled-length laser beams, which has
had considerable effect on many fields of Imperial technology.
- Developed by Solar Federation researchers in 2096,
veranol is a pale blue liquid which remained the only reliable means of
insuring accurate testimony until the mindprobe was developed in 2543.
Although it is still used for that purpose when mindprobes are not available,
its primary use now is in the anti-interrogation conditioning given
in sensitive or senior positions. There is speculation that it is also used
to condition IntelDiv field agents to help them maintain cover
during covert investigations, but Marine
Corps authorities refuse to comment.
- A ship carrying Imperial nobles and/or senior
officers will use special designations to inform others of that fact. A
vessel carrying the Sovereign will drop its name and use either "Navy One",
"Marine One", or (in the rare case of a civilian ship) "Empire One".
Ships carrying other VIPs retain their names, identifying the senior's
rank, whether crewwen or passenger, by the following Distinguished Visitor
