Reference Book: Star Wars Saga Edition Rebellion Era Campaign Guide
Survival should not be taken for granted in the war-torn galaxy, particularly on the fringes of civilization where resources can be scarce. One of the most important skills for fending off death is the ability to think quickly when the need arises. Improvisers can quickly grasp the needs of a situation, analyze what tools are at hand, remember relevant information, and combine all these factors into a hasty (Though not necessarily elegant) solution. Although Improvisors specialize in mechanical marvels, they also have a moderate aptitude in almost any skill or area of knowledge.
To qualify to become an Improviser, a character must fulfill the following criteria:

Force Points Edit
Defense Bonuses Edit
At every odd-numbered level (1st, 3rd, 5th, and so on), the Improviser selects a Talent. The Improviser must meet the prerequisites (If any) of the chosen Talent. No Talent can be selected more than once unless expressly indicated. An Improviser can select a Talent from one of the Talent Trees (Improviser).
No Tools Required Edit
The Improviser can use parts of machines and electronics as tools, eliminating the need for a Security Kit or a Tool Kit when attempting Mechanics or Use Computer checks that would normally require such a tool. The Improviser is always considered to be using a Tool Kit or Security Kit, even when he or she does not have one.
At 2nd level, an Improviser gains access to illegal goods through their underworld connections. An Improviser can obtain any combination of items that have an availability of Rare or Illegal, up to a total value of 2,000 credits x one-half their Class Level (Rounded down). The Improviser does not need to pay Black Market multipliers on these goods, only their base value. Obtaining any combination of these goods requires one hour of work in a civilized or semi-civilized area.
The Improviser can select those goods immediately, or over the course of their level. However, if the Improviser levels up without having reached their Contraband limit, any additional credits' worth of goods are lost, and the Improviser's budget for obtaining Rare and Illegal items resets with the new level.
