==Cloaking Devices in ''Star Wars''==
Cloaking devices have occasionally been mentioned in the ''Star Wars'' movies, but never actually seen in operation. In ''[[Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back]]'', when the [[ISD]] ''Avenger'' loses track of the ''[[Millennium Falcon]]'', Captain Needa dismisses the possibility that his target engaged a cloaking device because the target ship is too small to have one. In ''[[Star Wars: The Phantom Menace]]'', [[Qui-Gon Jinn]] asks if [[Padmé Amidala|Queen Amidala's]] yacht has a cloaking device, but [[Captain Panaka]] informs him that it does not.

In the ''Heir to the Empire'' series of novels by [[Timothy Zahn]], [[Thrawn|Grand Admiral Thrawn]] employs cloaking devices in several ways.  According to these novels, a ship can avoid detection with a cloaking device, but the cloaked ship is also completely blind, limiting the usefulness of the device.
