In The Book of Boba Fett chapter 4, we see:
Slave I pulling itself up from the Sarlacc Pit with its thrusters(?) turned on and aimed up.
I've always assumed that the big, glowing things at the aft side of Star Wars ships are thrusters, yet Boba Fett's ship moves in the opposite direction from where they're pointed. How?
Is the light being generated just "waste light" from the reaction powering the ship that generates anti-gravitons or something? And if so, why the big, glowing things always pointed aft?
