LEGO appearanceEdit

According to the Appearances section Starkiller appears in LEGO Star Wars III: The Clone Wars. The LEGO article and nowhere else in the article, so I'm not sure if he really appeared in it. I don't recall Starkiller being in the Clone Wars series, but then again the LEGO games always have had a bunch of random characters in them who wen't really part of the films so I might be wrong. So, does anyone know if he really appeared or not? Manga (talkcontribs) 21:59, May 26, 2011 (UTC)

I'm pretty sure Lego Star Wars isn't canon.--Dsafghable 00:47, April 13, 2012 (UTC)

Homeworld?Edit

Does anyone know if Galen Marek was actually born on Kashyyyk or was he born before his parents settled there?JRT2010 11:43, June 4, 2011 (UTC)

  • You know, I'm not sure if it's ever said WHERE he was born, simply that he was RAISED on Kashyyyk. However, someone should check the novelization of TFU and TFUII to be sure.--Master Tej 05:40, July 1, 2011 (UTC)
    • The novelization said that Galen's father, Kento Marek, lived on Kashyyyk for ten years. Based on this information, Galen had to have been born on Kashyyyk. To guess Galen's age at the time when he was first discovered by Darth Vader would be speculation, but based on his appearance as a small boy (including human standards i.e. aging, physical growth), he was somewhere under the age of 10 when Vader took him.

New QuoteEdit

I've noticed that a lot of people have complained about the quote. So I've come up with two new choices for a quote, one is said in a preview for TFUII by Starkiller, and one is said on board the Rogue Shadow between Starkiller and Juno before they head to Corellia. I will list them below with sections to vote, along with a section for the original which is being used in the article now. Hopefully, we can find one that better represents Starkiller.

Quote 1: "You have your Rebel Alliance. What are you going to do with it?" Juno asked. His eyes met hers. "Trust me Juno. I'm doing the right thing, for both of us."

Quote 2: "Betrayed by Vader for the last time. A new journey begins. With something worth fighting for. Someone worth dying for. And I will not stop. I will not rest! Vader can't stop me now. Nothing can."

Please vote here with an optional explanation why.

Main pictureEdit

Should we replace the main picture? Before I die, I'm gonna eat a bag of Cheetos and enjoy the last few moments of life 12:11, July 5, 2011 (UTC)

  • Uh, why? and with what? (: –Tm_T (Talk) 12:37, July 5, 2011 (UTC)

Jedi Temple imagesEdit

Since it's canon that Galen Marek didn't get his blue lightsaber crystal until Kashyyyk, shouldn't the images of him in the Jedi Temple be with a green blade? I can go ahead and snag images of that if need be. Ruthless Xero(Comment) 22:44, July 6, 2011 (UTC)

Quote Edit

Recently, there has been discord over the nature of the quote used at the top of the article. I would just like to say that the quote is, and I quote "He was meant to root out the Rebels, not give them hope. His sacrifice will only inspire them." - Emperor Palpatine. This is straight out of the book, which, need I remind everyone, takes canon precedence over ANY other source, including all video games. Recently, some users have shaped the beginnings of an edit war over this. I will be changing the quote to what is in the novel, and anyone with a protest to what the novel says, please post here.--Master Tej 02:34, August 24, 2011 (UTC)

  • "the book [...] takes canon precedence over ANY other source, including all video games" No, it doesn't. -- I need a name (Complain here) 10:33, August 24, 2011 (UTC)
    • Yes, it does. Please inform me of where it says it doesn't, or what source DOES take precedence, because you have intriguied me.--Master Tej 19:29, August 24, 2011 (UTC)
      • It says that books and games are the same level of canon. I would personally take the Video Game, specifically the 360/PS3/PC version, over all others. My reasoning for that is that the novel, comic, and Krome-developed versions of the game were all based around the flagship version of the game. The game was the central focus, and all the rest was supplementary during the design process. When Lucas reviewed/approved scripts, it was game script and not novel overviews. SinisterSamurai 20:30, August 24, 2011 (UTC)
        • Please, point out to me where it states that books and video games are on the same level of canon. Secondly, please post what the 360/PS3/PC version does say when the line in question is stated by Palpatine, because if the games say the same thing as the book, then we have no disagreement.--Master Tej 17:48, August 27, 2011 (UTC)
"He was meant to root out the Rebels, not give them hope. His sacrifice will only inspire them…"

"He was meant to root out the Rebels. His sacrifice will only inspire them…"

Clearly, there is a difference, but only a slight one.JRT2010 17:15, August 31, 2011 (UTC)
          • Yes, but, it is still a difference, and the highest level of canonity should be attempted at all times, so I am only trying to use the correct quote.--Master Tej 11:48, September 13, 2011 (UTC)
  • LFL considers the novelization to be the "true story" of the TFU events, as stated here, specifically While the video game itself presents a player with myriad options and story paths, this novel can be thought of as the "true story" of the Starkiller. - Cavalier OneFarStar(Squadron channel) 12:01, September 13, 2011 (UTC)

Sith Acolytes Edit

Should there be a mention in the article of the Imperial Sith Acolytes? as they were clones of Marek, I was also thinking that maybe we should have an article on all the clones of Marek, i.e Starkiller, Dark Apprentice, Aberrant Clones & Sith Acolytes, any thoughts? --DK Wolf 27 JaingHead Commlink 23:48, December 13, 2011 (UTC)

Birth YearEdit

The article has his birty year as c. 19 BBY. He looks to be aroung 7-10 when you first see him in the game and with the Jedi vs Sith: The Essential Guide to the Force stating the battle of Kashyyyk taking place around c. 18 BBY wouldn't that place his birth around 29-26 BBY? I have difficulty with believing that a one year old force pulled Vader's lightsaber away from him. DarthRevan1173 (talk) 07:50, July 22, 2012 (UTC)

I think he was definitely younger than 10, maybe 4 or 5 according to the size of him and Vader's lightsaber in the cutscene. Btw, why there is a note that that he was born at 16 and died at 33?--Foxbite (talk) 02:54, June 25, 2016 (UTC)

Sith Seeker Edit

What is this Sith Seeker technque, and how to use it in e game? -- {{SUBST:Signature/IlMualim}} 13:01, February 13, 2013 (UTC)

Shouldn't we make a section about the dark side ending and dlc. Unsigned comment by Zamonblue222 (talk • contribs).

Clone Edit

Could it be that the original Galen was killed aboard the Empirical and replaced by a first clone? After his recovery Starkiller and Juno repeatedly wonder that he has no scars at all. --Neshen (talk) 16:15, May 26, 2016 (UTC)
