Ok, I am so confused, is the Book of Imperial Shuttle Plans canon or not?JustinGann 22:30, 29 Nov 2005 (UTC)
- It originally said it wasn't, but you never know. Admiral J. Nebulax 22:43, 29 Nov 2005 (UTC)
Evidence that the Book of Imperial Shuttle Plans is non-canonEdit
- 1.) There is no "Star Wars" logo anywhere on the dossier.
- 2.) The information in the blueprints does not fit with canon.
- 3.) It is produced under a well-known fan-art "imprint".
- 4.) LFL have no record of ever authorizing it (thanks to Leland Chee for helping us out with this!)
All the evidence is against it, and even if it was (which is utterly unlikely), the source does not fit with continuity, and it contains material from other franchises. Non-canon, even in the unlikely eventuality of some official status.
But I guess someone could upload the image of the cover via the link in the thread at forums.starwars.com, just to make the page a little prettier... --McEwok 23:03, 29 Nov 2005 (UTC)

OK, I would like to respond to the following:
"Nontheless a small hardcore of fans in the younger generation attach fervently, exclusively and defensively to the recent EU products. Persisting in a state of denial, many pretend that the first generation products were unofficial or never existed."
I just find this insulting. I mean, I wrote the original article assuming the Book of ISP was canon, in good faith, trying to be as eshasutive in my inclusion of sources as possible. I also wrote articles on Cygnus Star Empire, etc. I do not know anyone in a state of denial or anyone pretending the first generation products were unofficial or never existed. Can the author of this statement provide a list of names with PROOF? If Leland says it is unofficial, that means its unofficial, regardless of our mental state. Personally, I LOVE this neat little book, I WANT it to be canon, but my personal preferences don't matter. I love all old sources; I love Marvel, CSW, SW 3D, Ewoks cartoons and comics, Brian Daley. I belong to the younger generation. I wonder what survey method the writer used to measure the "smallness" of this group he defines. The problem with the older stuff is not just that they contradict newer EU but they often contradict the MOVIES. For example, the old Imperator-class blueprints are just awesome and intriguing, and a few ELEMENTS may be workable in the canon, but the whole thing is mis-scaled acc. to movie evidence! Whom can deny the roughly 1600 m length of the ship from screen? The smaller scale assumed by the document basically invalidates all of its locations, etc., since if resized, for example, personal quarters would be really HUGE. I seriously doubt Jack or McEwok deny the existence of or hate older sources, I bet they like older sources too. They are looking to official stances, rather than personal taste, on what is canon.JustinGann 23:22, 29 Nov 2005 (UTC)
Imperial Star DestroyerEdit
Didn't Cygnus Spaceworks facilitate the secondary propulsion system for the ISD in some shape or form? I believe it's listed in the EGVV, should we add this to the page?--MIS Tau 1 22:04, 16 August 2007 (UTC)
- If it can be confirmed, then yes, it should definitely be added. jSarek 00:48, 17 August 2007 (UTC)
Epsilon-class shuttle source? Edit
Is there a source for the Epsilon-class shuttle? It redlinked and I can't find another mention of it. --JMM 01:12, 6 June 2008 (UTC)
