Fusion generators,[1] also known as fusion reactors,[2] or fusion facilities,[3] or fusion power core[4] were a type of generator capable of creating power. GNK-series power droids were built with internal fusion generators.[1]

By the time of the early Empire, it was considered obsolete for a droid to be powered with this type of energy.[4]

Behind the scenes[edit | edit source]

Fusion generators were first mentioned in the Star Wars Legends core rule book for the first edition of the Star Wars: The Roleplaying Game, which was released in 1987. They were confirmed to be canon under the name fusion reactor when they appeared in "Unfinished Business" an episode of the Star Wars: The Clone Wars television series released on StarWars.com in 2014 as part of The Clone Wars Legacy. The name fusion generator was then also reinstated as canon by the reference book Star Wars: The Force Awakens: The Visual Dictionary, which was written by Pablo Hidalgo and released in 2015.

Despite fusion being an amazing accomplishment on Earth, and could supply unlimited energy, Galen Erso disregarded it and said that the energy from kyber crystals could be able to supply inexpensive power to developing worlds.

Nuclear fusion seemed to be the norm for powering ships and other technology across all Star Wars media; yet in Most Wanted, it was referred to as ancient.
