- "I do not talk to terrorists and insurgents."
- ―An Imperial recruiter
Terrorists were those who engaged in terrorism, the use of violence and threats to intimidate or coerce, especially for political purposes.
Meanwhile, the Empire embraced the Tarkin Doctrine --the use of fear of overwhelming force to create a climate of fear and obedience-- making it an equal practitioner of state terrorism, as epitomised by the Death Star and its deployment against various unarmed civilian and even pacifist worlds such as Alderaan.
The Corellian Security Force considered the Meatlump Gang to be a terrorist organization for planting explosives in various cities, but only next to the machinery they despised. Terrorists were also known to place bombs in the eastern part of Theed, much to the annoyance of the Royal Security Forces.
