StarWTF!? Episode 49: Qabbrat a/k/a Darth Vader’s Meditation Chamber

Ah! It’s good to be out of a prequel or a expanded universe character and back on to the classics! Today, we talk about the Qabbrat! The good old classic Qabbrat! What? Don’t know what that is? Well, you certainly remember it quite well! It’s Darth Vader’s Meditation chamber from The Empire Strikes Back!

We look in depth to this device, discussing it’s innards and speculate what else it does? Does that helmet arm do anything else? Can it transported places? Does he have more? Why is it called a Qabbrat? Found out as our robo arms apply our breathing masks and talk about this weird pod one useless fact at a time.

Darth Vader‘s meditation chamber, or Qabbrat[1] was a life support pod that allowed the Sith Lord to survive for extended periods without the helmet and mask of his suit. The injuries Vader sustained during the duel with Obi-Wan Kenobi on Mustafar normally made this impossible.
