    The clear plastic boards with the white lines on them? They keep coming up in the OT and I never fully understood what they are or what they do.

    Some sort of tactical board would be my guess

    In the Navy we used boards like that to keep track of contacts... Where they are, what they are, if they're bads, goods, or unknown, etc. The lines are sci fi dressing.

    I always assumed the lines were supposed to represent ranges (probably sensor ranges, but maybe something else). They could also be terrain indicators, at least on Hoth.

    They look multi-dimensional, so I'm imagining they represent space; @KilroyMcFadden is probably dead on the money.

    Here's a better view. I always assumed it was a tactical map, as well.
