Survival capsules were emergency escape devices for ships that either were not equipped with standard escape pods or for last second ejection from a ship.

CharacteristicsEdit

Anakin Skywalker, Obi-Wan Kenobi, and Ahsoka Tano emerge from their capsules on Felucia

Survival capsules were large enough to encompass a single occupant and the chair the capsule was attached to. They were made of a tough, yet flexible, material that allowed them to fall from great heights and come to a bouncing landing all while maintaining their structural integrity and protecting the occupant. They were yellow in color with "CAUTION - Explosive Extrusion" written in red on the sides. Once the capsules safely came to rest on a solid surface, the sides of the capsule would burst open to allow the passenger to exit the pod.[1]

HistoryEdit

During the Clone Wars, Anakin Skywalker, Obi-Wan Kenobi and Ahsoka Tano to the Felucia system to investigate the lack of communication from the Republic medical center stationed there. When they arrived at Felucia, they were attacked by Vulture droids who succeeded in damaging the Jedi's unarmed T-6 shuttle, forcing it to crash on the planet's surface. Just before the shuttle slammed into a rocky outcropping, they ejected, deploying their survival capsules and bouncing down the huge foliage that covered the surface of the planet. All three Jedi's capsules came to rest relatively close to each other and the three safely exited the pods.[1]
