The Mon Calamari battle baton was a simple energy weapon in the shape of a ribbed scepter. They were wielded as a status symbol by Mon Calamari officers. One such weapon was wielded by Captain Ackbar during the Second Battle of Mon Calamari.
Behind the scenesEdit
The baton that Ackbar holds is a homage to his 1983 action figure that came with such an accessory. Though it was not originally intended to be a weapon, the episodic director Danny Keller vividly remembered pretending it was a blaster, so it was worked into the show.
