Quotes:
From Star Wars: Episode VI - Return of the Jedi (1983)
Admiral Ackbar: You can see here, the Death Star orbiting the forest moon of Endor. Although the weapon systems on this Death Star or not yet operational, the Death Star does have a strong defense mechanism. It is protected by an energy shield which is generated from the nearby forest moon of Endor.
[the projector shows the Death Star and the yellow lights indicating the shield]
Admiral Ackbar: The shield must be deactivated, if any attack is to be attempted.
[the projector enlarges the Death Star image]
Admiral Ackbar: Once the shield is down, our cruisers will create a perimeter, while our fighters fly into the superstructure and attempt to knock out the main reactor.
