"Qui-Gon told me to stay in this cockpit, so that's what I'm going to do."
―Anakin Skywalker, explaining his reasoning for staying in a cockpit[1]

The cockpit of the Millennium Falcon

The cockpit or control pod[2] was, usually, the primary center of control for various kinds of vehicles. Pilots operated their vessels from cockpits, managing a variety of instruments that controlled the vehicle's speed, direction, and other operations. Anakin Skywalker was once ordered to stay in the cockpit of an N-1 starfighter during the Battle of Naboo in order to stay out of harm's way. Skywalker inadvertently flew the craft into battle, however. Although cockpits were normally a part of a vessel's main body, Podracer cockpits were tethered to the engines they controlled via cables. Some ground vehicles had an open cockpit, such as the All Terrain Reconnaissance Transport (AT-RT) walker.
