Seekers were missiles employed by the First Order in defensive emplacements.
During atmospheric dogfights, there was a concern over collateral damage.
In 34 ABY, General Armitage Hux ordered that seekers be employed at Starkiller Base during the Resistance's Battle of Starkiller Base, where they destroyed at least one T-70 X-wing starfighter.
During the battle, Ello Asty saved Blue Nine by redirecting a pair of seekers.
Behind the scenesEdit
Seekers appear in the 2015 Star Wars saga film Star Wars: Episode VII The Force Awakens.
