- "Fireships to the left and the right."

- "—Get the dousers on it!"
"We need more help here, mobilize all the fire teams!"
- ―Fire teams during the attack on Naboo
The Galactic Republic made use of fireships during the Clone Wars, when several of the craft attempted to put out the flaming wreck of the Invisible Hand as it crash-landed on Coruscant, at the conclusion of the Battle of Coruscant. The Royal House of Naboo also maintained fire teams, who were mobilized during the Imperial Operation: Cinder following the Battle of Endor. The teams' dousers were brought to bear on the fires caused by typhoon-strength storms.
Behind the scenesEdit
Fireships first appeared in Star Wars: Episode III Revenge of the Sith. The vessels are mentioned in Ultimate Star Wars, which formats the name as both "fireship" and "fire ship". This article favors the former formatting, which appears in the main text of the book's "Battle of Coruscant" section, rather than the latter, used in an image caption.
