Obi-Wan Kenobi deactivates the tractor beam

Tractor Beam 12 was a tractor beam control unit onboard the Death Star. It was located in Section N6, as part of the Level 6 Core Shaft Corridor within the Tractor beam power-generator trench. In 0 BBY, during the skirmish on the battlestation with Luke Skywalker and Han Solo, it was turned off by Obi-Wan Kenobi to deactivate the entire tractor grid, allowing the Millennium Falcon to escape. The system screen inscription read Power, Inoperative, and Tractor Beam 12 (Sec. N6) in Aurebesh.

Behind the scenes[]

In both the original version and special edition of A New Hope, the text on the tractor beam read in English and Aurebesh, respectively.
