This writing system was in common use throughout the Old Republic and continued to be used during the reign of the Galactic Empire.

Known useEdit

This script was commonly used to display information on small portable devices. Zam Wesell used this script to display targeting information on both her electro-goggles[1][2] and sniper rifle optics.[3]

It was also in use by the prominent Jedi Obi-Wan Kenobi, who used it to display information on the display screens of his Delta-7 Aethersprite-class light interceptor.

During the Clone Wars, the data readouts in Palpatine's private office utilized this script, which Palpatine had been reading when Anakin Skywalker arrived to inform him that General Obi-Wan Kenobi was about to fight General Grievous.[4]

Behind the scenesEdit

Star Wars '76 (while lacking an in-universe name) is an in-universe writing system further developed by Philip Metschan, based upon an earlier Joe Johnston typeface developed for Star Wars: Episode IV A New Hope and later used in Star Wars: Episode VI Return of the Jedi. The typeface can also be seen throughout Star Wars: Episode II Attack of the Clones.[1][2]

Fans attempting to translate this font will have difficulty doing so, as Metschan only canonized the letters A through U.[2][1]

The typeface can be seen printed on TIE pilot helmets in Star Wars: Episode IV A New Hope and the Imperial speeder bikes in various behind the scenes images from Star Wars: Episode VI Return of the Jedi.

Luke Skywalker's X-wing cockpit display also displays this script when translating R2-D2's warbles during Star Wars: Episode V The Empire Strikes Back.

The script also features prominently on Obi Wan's Jedi Starfighter cockpit display screens and Zam Wesell's KiSteer 1284 projectile rifle's scope display in Star Wars: Episode II Attack of the Clones.[1][2]
