Sienar Fleet Systems
Basic info
First appearance: A New Hope
Summary
Sienar Fleet Systems or SFS (owned by the massive company Santhe/Sienar Technologies) was a major starship manufacturer. Through their Sienar Design Systems subsidiary, they were also responsible for many drive and power systems. Sienar Fleet Systems, along with Kuat Drive Yards and the Corellian Engineering Corporation, was one of the major suppliers of military vessels for the Galactic Empire - whereas KDY was famous for designing massive Star Destroyers, SFS was best-known as the supplier of the small, yet deadly TIE fighters. Yet SFS also created the massive I-a2b solar ionization reactor that powered the Imperial-class Star Destroyer and dictated the size and design of its mile-long hull - in effect, KDY built the Imperial-class around a huge Sienar drive system. SFS, originally Republic Sienar Systems, was founded over 15 millennia before the Battle of Yavin by the wealthy Sienar family, apparently on Corulag. Over the millennia, they produced designs such as the Sienar Battleship and the Interdictor-class cruiser. A century before the Battle of Yavin, the Sienars united with the Santhe family of Lianna, who owned Santhe Security, due to an arranged marriage. Although this gave the Santhe family something of the status of a ruling dynasty within the merged Santhe/Sienar, scions of the Sienar lineage retained operational control of the ship-design section of the conglomerate - father and son Narro Sienar and Raith Sienar served as successive CEOs for many years in the last decades of the Old Republic and under the Galactic Empire.
