The Completely Unofficial Star Wars Encyclopedia at theForce.net has many references to detentions and jailing - here are a few:

AA-23

designation of the detention block on the first Death Star used to imprison Princess Leia. It was located on Level 5. (SW)


Axxila

Han Solo once described this world as "Coruscant turned inside (sic) and made into a jail where the inmates are in control." Sate Pestage fled here, after he lost control of the Ciutric Hegemony. He tried to make a deal with Leia Organa that would turn Coruscant over to the New Republic in exchange for his freedom, but Ysanne Isard had other plans. She dispatched Admiral Krennel to subjugate the planet, wiping out many of the planet's civilians for harboring Leia Organa, Han Solo, and Rogue Squadron. The vast majority of the populace was unaware of the presence of the New Republic on their world, and died for no apparent reason. (XWM, IR)


Cyberlock

a robotic lock often used on detention cells. (JS)


Damorind Securities

this corporation produced large detention devices such as force cages. (GG10)


Detention Task Force

this study group was formed within the Corporate Sector Authority to analyze the costs and methods of imprisonment in various Authority and Imperial prison facilities. They determined that the New Order would likely lead to rebellion, and that a new breed of prison would be required to maintain larger numbers of criminals. They proposed the Stars' End project, and were involved in the initial design. The conclusion of the task force was that criminals could be stored in stasis booths, maintained in suspended animation until their sentences were up. This cut down on most operational costs - like food, clothing, and accommodations - while ensuring the safety of the prisoners. (CSA)

Drago

the Alliance shuttle which went to Stars' End to rescue a group of prisoners of war. It captured the Imperial freighter Genue as it was delivering the prisoners to the detention center there. (XW)


Goshyn Detention Center

a prison facility, Goshyn was located on a remote asteroid, and was maintained throughout the reign of Emperor Palpatine. (TTSB)


Norba

Cabrool Nuum's daughter, she had almost as many aspirations as her devious brother, Rusk. When Rusk imprisoned Jabba the Hutt, Norba released the crimelord so that he could kill Rusk. She threw Jabba in jail for murder, but explained that she would set him free if Jabba agreed to kill Vu Chusker. Jabba, however, didn't want to be subservient to any of the Nuum clan, and so he ate Norba. (JTH)



Prison

From Memory Alpha, the free Star Trek reference.

Prison is one of several forms of punishment, where an individual is shut up against his will, after committing a crime. Prisons aboard starships and starbases are known as brigs, which are typically used as short-term prisons, or for the containment of unprocessed fugitives.

Klingon philosophy indicates that, if taken prisoner, a Klingon would rather kill themselves rather than be held prisoner, unless there are enemies to fight or hope of escape. (DS9: "In Purgatory's Shadow")


A few troubled words....


[Hutt]
Bona nai kachu.
You're in trouble now.

Move aside and stop hogging the space lane!

And from Karen Traviss - Useful phrases to try when you're nicked for speeding in downtown Keldabe. (Karen is the author of the Star Wars books Hard Contact, and forthcoming Triple Zero. Be sure to pick them up! AND her other books in the Wess'har series.)

I've got a tool "mando" online and downloadable, at http://mando.mrklingon.org that (for now) only includes words from Hard Contact. As time goes by I hope to add more - if YOU buy the next books from Karen, I'm sure you can add to your copy of the lexicon! (Then you too will know why it is fun to be a Xenolinguist!)
