A quote that may be worth including Edit

From Order 66:

"It's so flawed that it looks as if all they're trying to do is to maroon as many generals in as many stupid places with inadequate support as they can."
- Corr, commenting on the overall strategy of the Clone Wars

I'm just getting to reading Order 66 now, and I thought that was a really profound quote, given what comes to pass. I think this is a good candidate to replace the Mace Windu quote under the Prelude to Order 66 header. Thoughts? -- DigiFluid 17:59, January 11, 2012 (UTC)

Real World Parallel Edit

Would it be worth mentioning in the article the similarity with Missouri Executive Order 44?

I know this is really old, but in a History Channel documentary on Star Wars, Lucas stated that the Jedi Order and Order 66 was based loosely on the Knights Templar and the extermination of that group:

"While the elite Jedi—who guard peace and justice in the Galactic Republic—bear similarities to Japanese samurai and Shaolin monks, they also echo the medieval monastic military order of the Knights Templar. The Templars, writes Terrance MacMullan in “Star Wars and History,” “were esteemed above other knights for their austerity, devotion, and moral purity. Like the Jedi, they practiced individual poverty within a military-monastic order that commanded great material resources.” A 12-member council of elders headed by a grand master governed both the Jedi and the Templars, and Jedi clothing even resembled the hooded white robes worn by the Christian warrior-monks who took vows of poverty, chastity and obedience. Much like the Great Jedi Purge ordered by Chancellor Palpatine in “Revenge of the Sith,” France’s King Philip IV annihilated the Knights Templar after arresting hundreds of them on October 13, 1307, and subsequently torturing and executing them for heresy." - Chasemarc (talk) 15:09, May 1, 2020 (UTC)

Main quote Edit

Just saw one of "The Lost Missions" of Star Wars: The Clone Wars and noticed this quote:

"When the time comes, no one will be able to stop our plan to execute Order 66."

Regarding main quotes, would this be considered a proper quote to use or not? Just a thought I had after finishing the episode, but not sure if it was sensible. -- CJSFanOn Stranger Tides, Arkham City 12:58, March 9, 2014 (UTC)

3.3 Factual correction Edit

Since the release of Season 6 of the Clone Wars, Lucas has officially confirmed that the clones were unknowingly programmed to carry out Order 66, via an implant placed in each of their brains at birth, and did not do so out of free will, as this article claims. For reference, the related episodes are 601, 602, and 603 of Star Wars: The Clone Wars. Unsigned comment by (talk • contribs).


I would like to know what happened to this article. It has changed. How can I retrieve the original or previous article for Order 66.--GabeJoe (talk) 22:58, December 20, 2014 (UTC)GabeJoe831

Kreia's Quote Need To Be Changed Edit

The quote currently on the page states: "The Jedi Order is as ancient as time itself. It would take the might of the entire galaxy to strike us down."

It claims to be from KOTOR 2, but I do not recall ever seeing this quote in the game and it seems out of character for Kreia to say this, considering her hostile attitudes to the Jedi.

It would probably be better to replace that quote with another quote (that I can confirm does show up if you kill all the Jedi Masters): "For every Jedi slain, for every Sith slain, another rises. But the order is wounded, yes." Just like the previous quote, this quote reflect the difficulty of killing Jedi, so replacing it should not be that big of a deal.--Igorhorst (talk) 02:41, March 13, 2020 (UTC)

The dubious quote has been removed from the page (see commit).--Igorhorst (talk) 16:27, April 24, 2020 (UTC)

  • To comment on that: I've been tasked by Nostalgia of Iran to help him find the quote, and no amount of research : internet search query, youtube video of the game, and a review of Kreia (not including modules) dialog tree directly from the game files (using KotOR Tool), helped to trace it back to the game. In fact, I even found quotes going against the dubious statement. That's why, with no further proof, it was decided to remove the quote entirely. --NanoLuukeCloning facility 16:50, April 24, 2020 (UTC)
