"Warning: Fuel cells near depletion."
―On Cad Bane's fuel computer[src]

A fuel cell, also referred to as a fuel core or fuel rod, was a part of a blaster or starship engine that contained its fuel. They were manufactured through the use of chemical churners and impact sifters.[1] Plutonium combined with uranium was put into starfighter fuel cells.



Isotope-5 fuel rods.

Around 3639 BBY,[2] Doctor Juvard Illip Oggurobb of the Hutt Cartel developed isotope-5 fuel rods. During the Conquest of Makeb, the fuel rods were contested between the Cartel and the Galactic Republic in order to escape Makeb aboard the Ark.

Wiborg Jenssen was a company that produced fuel cells for the twin ion engines of TIE Series craft. Fuel cells like the ones in YT-1300 light freighters were powered with a liquid metal fuel.[3]

Chez O'nder once had to try to eat a blaster's fuel cell after losing a bet, and it fused his lips together.[4]

  2. Using information from the novel The Old Republic: Annihilation and Star Wars: The Old Republic: Knights of the Fallen Empire, the events of Game Updates 2.0 through 3.3 for Star Wars: The Old Republic can be placed in the time period between 3640 BBY and 3637 BBY. According to The Old Republic lead designer Charles Boyd (screenshot), the game's events can be assumed to occur in a timeline matching that of their real-time release. Therefore, the events of Game Update 2.0 and the Digital Expansion Rise of the Hutt Cartel can be placed in approximately 3639 BBY.
