- "I had a dream I was a Jedi. I came back here and freed all the slaves."
- ―Anakin Skywalker
Dreams were phenomena that happened when a being was asleep. Particularly disturbing dreams were known as nightmares. Anakin Skywalker experienced emotionally powerful Force visions while he dreamed. As a slave, he dreamed of becoming a Jedi. Shortly before the death of both his mother and wife, Anakin experienced visions of their deaths. The inhibitor chips implanted in the clone troopers to force them to carry out Order 66 had the side effect of giving them indistinct nightmares about a never-ending "mission" relating to the command long before the chips were activated.
