Shuttle of similar design in Episode VII Edit

A shuttle of conspicuously similar design is seen during the lightsaber flashback sequence, as Rey is left on Jakku. Worthy of mention? Ded10cTalk · Contrib's 14:06, April 11, 2016 (UTC)

  • I wouldn't say so it's a pretty generic spaceship design Overlordjeff (talk) 14:54, April 11, 2016 (UTC)
    • Also please note that this is a Legends article, while Episode 7 is Canon. Supreme Emperor (talk) 15:30, April 11, 2016 (UTC)
      • That's precisely why I mentioned this on the talk page as per WP:RECKLESS. If there is conclusive enough evidence - for example if there aren't any other ships of conspicuously similar design, which can't reasonably be assessed by one wookieepedian alone - then I see no reason the reference couldn't be mentioned in a trivia section as in the case of the T-17.

        • The thing is, though, that it could be a coincidence, and we don't need to document coincidence—especially when it would imply, intentionally or not, that Luke could be Rey's father. That falls under speculation and original research. Now, if we found out that this subject informed the design of the shuttle on Jakku, then that's totally fair game. We'd just need a source for that. - Brandon Rhea(talk) 16:18, April 11, 2016 (UTC)
          • Also, just a heads up that the policy you linked to is on Wikipedia. Our policy is here. Supreme Emperor (talk) 16:23, April 11, 2016 (UTC)
            • Regards Brandon's reply, commenting that two things are of similar design is not the same as asserting that they are the same individual object. The article here implies that Skywalker's shuttle is not unique. If a user assumes that to be the case, then that is their mistake - and the article could easily be worded to preclude such a misconception. Agreed on the point about coincidence, however.
