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.
In 5 ABY, 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.

Notes and referencesEdit
- ↑ 1.0 1.1 Aftermath: Life Debt
- ↑ Star Wars: Galactic Atlas dates the Battle of Endor to 4 ABY and the events of Shattered Empire, Part IV, which take place three months after the battle, to 5 ABY. Furthermore, the novel Aftermath states that months have passed since the Battle of Endor, while Aftermath: Life Debt begins two months after the end of Aftermath. Therefore, the events of Aftermath: Life Debt begin at least four months after the Battle of Endor, which corresponds to 5 ABY. Additionally, Galactic Atlas dates the Battle of Jakku, as depicted in Life Debt's sequel, Aftermath: Empire's End, to 5 ABY as well, thereby firmly placing Aftermath: Life Debt in 5 ABY.
