I was recently watching Episode 3 and a few clone wars episodes, and I found myself thinking during the opening battle between the Republic and General Grievous' forces above Coruscant, on a planet so densely populated where potentially thousands of inhabitants can be killed from a drifting capital class ship with a decaying orbit during space battles what defenses are in place?
Is there any instances of some form of emergency services that tractor beam chunks of debris to safe landing places or repulsor towers that can slow or suspend it until it can be taken apart safely? Even disintegration lasers or emergency force field generators like the types deployed on Hoth as they must have the energy output capable of sustaining it. This IS the galactic capital so must have some advanced tech at its deposal. Even now in our own development humans have certain preventative measures for all types of threats and ways of tracking them, plus responses or fall back plans.
