- "Qui-Gon told me to stay in this cockpit, and that's what I'm going to do!"
- ―Anakin Skywalker, explaining his reasoning for staying in a cockpit.
The cockpit was, usually, the primary center of control for various kinds of vehicles. Pilots operated their vessels from cockpits, managing a variety of instruments that controlled the vehicle's speed, direction, and other operations. Anakin Skywalker was once ordered to stay in the cockpit of an N-1 starfighter during the Battle of Naboo in order to stay out of harm's way. Skywalker inadvertently flew the craft into battle, however. Although cockpits were normally a part of a vessel's main body, Podracer cockpits were tethered to the engines they controlled via cables. Some ground vehicles had an open cockpit, such as the All Terrain Recon Transport (AT-RT) walker.
