The Databank, formerly found on StarWars.com, was in its time the only official Star Wars database available to the public. Entries were sorted alphabetically within several categories. Each entry was split into three sections, wherever it was applicable, and would first describe things as seen in the films—if at all—then explore additional information from the Expanded Universe, before finally taking a look behind the scenes.
Most entries were written by Pablo Hidalgo. The What's The Story? feature of Hyperspace allowed fans to write Databank entries on the more obscure characters, vehicles, species and locations of the saga. 
Following the official Star Wars site's overhaul on September 13, 2011, the Databank was replaced by the Encyclopedia feature, with all original Databank entries made obsolete following the revamping.
