"Start your engines."
Podracing announcer Fode[2]

Engines, also known as thrusters, were devices used to propel vehicles across land, through a planet's atmosphere, or through the void of space. Engines could vary in size and shape, with some vehicles like podracers consisting of little more than two engines and a cockpit.[2]

There were at least three categories of engines: repulsorlifts (which required a large mass to push against in order to function), sublight engines (which drove ships in realspace at speeds below that of light), and hyperdrives (which attained lightspeed and propelled ships in hyperspace).[3]

Engine power in some starships could be boosted to increase the vehicle's speed. Asteroid thrusters were a type of engine which could be attached to asteroids and used to move them.[4]
