The Syliure-31 long-range hyperdrive module, alternatively spelled Syluire, was a hyperdrive docking ring that was produced by TransGalMeg Industries, Incorporated in the years leading up to and during the Clone Wars. It was designed to offer hyperspace travel to starfighters that were too small to allow for an onboard hyperdrive.
Characteristics[edit | edit source]
The Syliure-31 was designed for the Kuat Systems Engineering Delta-7 Aethersprite-class light interceptor, though it was also used to transport Delta-7Bs, and Delta-12 Skysprites. Two large hyperdrive engines were mounted on opposite sides of the ring, which split across the middle with a socket that connected the fighter to the ring. The engines were fitted with Class 1.0 hyperdrives, with an operational range of 150,000 light years.
With the introduction of the Eta-2 Actis-class interceptor, and its wide acceptance as the "replacement" for the Delta-7 and Delta-7B, TransGalMeg developed the larger Syliure-45 hyperdrive module. Though this advanced model was in common usage as of the Battle of Coruscant, several Syliure-31s were still in operation, held in orbit above the Jedi Temple.
At least one Syluire-31 was still operational in orbit around Geonosis by the time of the Galactic Civil War, which Wedge Antilles later used alongside a Delta-7 Aethersprite-class light interceptor recovered from Geonosis to leave the system after an ambush.
