Its says that Nar Shaddaa became an ecumenopolis in 24,500 BBY. But it says the Hutts didn't conquer Evocar until 15,000 BBY. I thought Nar Shaddaa become an ecumenopolis once the Hutts took control of Evocar, so why does it say Nar Shaddaa became an ecumenopolis 9,500 years earlier? From the sounds of things, the Evocii didn't have the technology to create an ecumenopolis on there own and I doubt people would randomly create an civilization on a moon and just completely ignore the planet it orbits (unless the planet is a gas giant or has an toxic atmosphere).

Anyone ever going to answer this?

  • Nar Shaddaa becomeing a planet wide city in 15,000 BBY is Non Cannon and it began to be built in 25,000 BBY just as Nal Hutta was terraformed. Fore five hundred years the Evocii were enslaved to build the citys of Nar Shaddaa until at last the moom was complete in 24,500 BBY. The natural resaurces of Nar Shaddaa were the matalic minerals of the origanal terrane.

Past or present? Edit

What's the deal with the post-vong situation stated across the article? --UVnet 02:52, 10 Jan 2006 (UTC)

  • It's Wookieepedia's policy to write articles in past tense, as if looking back on it Linkman95 14:23, 19 January 2006 (UTC)

Droids Edit

Is its' appearance in Droids a retcon?Kuralyov 21:51, 15 February 2006 (UTC)

  • If it appears in the Toon, I guess it would have to be a retcon, since AFAIK Nar Shaddaa wasn't created until Dark Empire. However, the Droids: Kalarba comic came out after DE.--Valin Kenobi 07:40, 9 October 2006 (UTC)


How do you explain that it appears to have normal gravity but it's only the moon of a normal-sized world?

  • We're talking about a universe with easily available FTL Travel, human level intelligence droids and a planet destroying super weapon on every corner and you're bothering to worry about gravity on a moon? Suspend just a bit of disbelief here. Oh, and to answer your question: Artificial gravity is everywhere. It's small enough to fit in a starfighter (inertial compensator) and reliable enough that it's used in almost every installation ever mentioned (exception: Centerpoint Station) It doesn't stretch the boundary of belief that it is commonly used to make otherwise inhabitable moons livable.-- 05:35, 23 July 2006 (UTC)
    • Perhaps Nar Shaddaa has an unusual concentration of heavy elements, or something.--Valin Kenobi 07:40, 9 October 2006 (UTC)
    • Right. A planet's size doesn't necessarily correlate with its gravity, all that matters is its mass. Perhaps Nar Shaddaa is extremely dense. Or perhaps it is all artificial gravity. What I want to know is, how can there only be 72-95 billion people on Nar Shaddaa, even if it is only a small moon? The entire planet is a towering city, you'd think the population would at least be in the hundreds of billions. 10:35, 31 August 2007
    • It could also be a huge moon like Charon, moon of Pluto. But population data 72-95 billion (upper answer) could also be on the long (british) scale and it would mean 72-95 trillion people. Methyl Orange (contact me) 15:54, 14 March 2008 (UTC)
    • Or the rotation speed of the moon could simply be fast --Dixieboy 22:49, 31 May 2008 (UTC)
    • Re: Sooo you're saying Dxun and Ohma-D'un have a jillion gravity generators burried beneath their uninhabited wilderness??? Bjj8383 04:44, November 9, 2010 (UTC)

The Vertical CityEdit

In Jedi Knight 2, do we know if the the label "The Vertical City" is a nickname for the planet (like "Smuggler's Moon") or if it is the actual city's name? Either way, I don't believe it's mentioned in the article yet. -BaronGrackle 10:08, 28 June 2006 (UTC)

  • Yes, it's a nickname. And seeing how "Vertical City" redirects here, I'm deleting the header. User:Bredd13/sig

Battle of Nar Shaddaa Edit

Should there be at least a passing mention of this Imperial attack on the moon in 4 BBY?

  • Seeing as that's an important event, you'd think so. 16:49, 22 May 2009 (UTC)

Imports, exportsEdit

Should a moon template have the |imports, |exports fields just like planets!? Spryquasar 04:41, July 18, 2010 (UTC)

Nar Shaddaa's surface Edit

How much of the world's cities were rebuilt since in Millennium Falcon it is described to be like it used to be before the Vong. --Senjuto 15:08, January 3, 2012 (UTC)

What, no mention of the fact that during it's original incarnations in Dark Forces and Jedi Knight, Nar Shaddaa was obviously an unusually large space station complex with an external atmosphere?

Given that if you jumped or fell off the platforms you did not hit the ground but fell into space...

-- 04:22, March 18, 2012 (UTC)

  • Er... what? Never did you fall into space on Nar Shaddaa. There was always a ground, or the screen simply blacked out before you got there. Generally, turning God mode on would let you fall to the bottom of a pit and die, or blackout if that is what was scripted. Dark Forces is different due to Engine limitations, and in Dakr Forces it is also called a moon, and never mentioned as a space port. The Ergo and Cal-Seti levels however were simply spaceports. Well, Seti was a spaceport on a planet actually. Also the Dark Forces Novellas, released very soon after the games, went into some detail about the surface anyways. You can only show much in a game, specially back in '97. --Clonehunter(Report your W.M.D.) 22:23, November 5, 2013 (UTC)

Various and Other?Edit

In the info box it says that the population is 79% Various, 20% Humans and 1% Other. Aren't "Various" and "Other" the same thing? --JediSentinel1997 00:32, April 16, 2012 (UTC)

  • You'd think so. It's that in the Atlas though so... either the Atlas is wrong or 'other' is for droids etc. I think the former is more likely, as droids aren't actual beings.-- 14:50, July 2, 2013 (UTC)

Soovada Edit

A article should be created about Soovada, see It is Huttsese for "spoils of war".--RazulAntiwield (talk) 08:23, June 11, 2014 (UTC)

Appearance Section FilterEdit

Is there a way to make the "Appearances" section include the dates of each of the linked sources? Or maybe, is there a way to switch the filter to display the links in chronological order? Basically, I'm hoping there can be a way for a casual fan like myself to pop into a page like this and know what the first mention of Nar Shaddaa.--Awkwardly_Tall_Jawa 15:03, May 14, 2016 (PST)
