- "Clear the bridge. Escort the officers down to the hangar."
- ―Poe Dameron
The bridge was a structure on nearly all warships and larger starships. A bridge served as the central hub for control and direction of the ship and ship activities. It housed crucial navigation and astrogation computers, and served as the officers' platform by which all orders were conveyed; communications and ship sterrage as well as for issuing strategy and battle maneuvers.[source?]
