==Cloaking Devices in ''Star Wars''==
 +
Cloaking devices have been mentioned a couple of times in the ''Star Wars'' movies, but they have only been described in use in post-movie novels.
 +
 +
In ''[[Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back]]'', when the [[ISD]] ''Avenger'' loses track of the ''Millenium 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-Gonn Jinn]] asks if [[Queen 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]], [[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.
