Behind the scenes[]

Author Aaron Allston, in the first three novels he wrote for the X-wing series (X-Wing: Wraith Squadron, X-Wing: Iron Fist and X-Wing: Solo Command), would use the word skimmer as a catch-all term for both landspeeders and airspeeders, despite the fact that skimmers were a distinctive class or subclass of repulsorlift vehicle. The Complete Star Wars Encyclopedia similarly considers skimmer an alternative name for a landspeeder.
