"Right now we are planning to use our powerful Zukonium rays in the power stations. Instead of being used for war and destruction, Zukonium will provide energy for our colonies."
Luke Skywalker, to Leia Organa[src]

The Zukonium ray was a strong power source that could be used as a weapon.


"Prepare to fire the Zukonium rays!"
Luke Skywalker, to R2-D2[src]

The Zukonium ray was powerful enough to destroy a small moon but was primarily used as a strong power source for buildings and colonies. The Planetary Pioneers hoped to use Zukonium rays as a power source on numerous uninhabited worlds. However, Luke Skywalker was forced to use Zukonium rays to destroy a maverick moon that was on a collision course with the planet housing the New Academy for Space Pilots.[1]
