The control module was a device which the Imperial Grand Moff Lozen Tolruck used to program and control the inhibitor chips inside all of the Wookiee slaves on the planet Kashyyyk. The device was a console that Tolruck kept at his island fortress. Tolruck's control module was of the transmitting variety and was totally wireless.[1]


In 5 ABY,[2] the former Imperial loyalty officer–turned–New Republic operative Sinjir Rath Velus used a hyperwave transceiver spike to hack into his control module and disable the inhibitor chips. This led to a mass Wookiee uprising that ended Imperial rule on Kashyyyk.[1]


Notes and referencesEdit

  1. 1.0 1.1 Aftermath: Life Debt
  2. Star Wars: Galactic Atlas places the Battle of Endor during the year 4 ABY. Shattered Empire, Part IV, which shows Shara Bey and Kes Dameron settling on Yavin 4, takes place three months after the Battle of Endor, and Galactic Atlas places Bey and Dameron's move to Yavin 4 in the year 5 ABY.
    The novel Aftermath says that months have passed since the Battle of Endor. Aftermath: Life Debt begins two months after the end of Aftermath; therefore, the events of the former take place at least four months after the Battle of Endor. Since three months after the Battle of Endor is part of 5 ABY, as shown with Bey and Dameron's settling on Yavin 4, events of Life Debt must take place in 5 ABY at the earliest. On the other hand, the Galactic Atlas dates the Battle of Jakku, as depicted in Life Debt's sequel Aftermath: Empire's End, to 5 ABY as well, leading to the conclusion that Life Debt is set in 5 ABY.
