Pod 1977

A Republic escape pod that had been ejected from a cruiser.

Escape pods were small emergency craft used to escape starships which were heavily damaged and even on the brink of destruction. Pods were kept loaded and prepared aboard larger starships in launch tubes ready to be activated at a moment's notice.


Escape pods were almost never equipped with weapons and thus were vulnerable to any nearby warships.



The Phoenix's hyperdrive-enabled escape pod.

The number of individuals who could fit in a life pod was determined by the amount of breathable air contained in the pod which because of the small size of these craft was usually quite limited only being enough for a few hours. Furthermore the amount of food supplies in the craft also limited how many may fit inside. A small cache of weapons were also often found on board that allowed the individuals within to protect themselves should they have required a landing on a planet surface.
