Ep IV appearanceEdit

How do we know from that the YT-2400 appearing in Ep. IV is the Outrider itself and not just any YT-2400 freighter? 22:34, 10 Jul 2005 (UTC)

And so does George Lucas. - Anym

  • And so does Disney. - Look it up someone. I'm not allowed to add a link, but Disney confirmed the Outrider in the new Canon. Not Dash Rendar, but the ship in A New Hope IS the Outrideri nthe new canon. Unsigned comment by (talk • contribs).
    • Primo: please remember to sign all your messages with four tildes, even if you're not a registered user. It's written at the top of the page every time you want to add something to a talk page. Secundo: when it comes to the Outrider, saying "look it up someone" does not help; if you have something to back up your statements, then link it here yourself. Do not send others on an errand. Tertio: if you're thinking of the fact that an officially-sanctioned interior model of the Outrider was on display at Star Wars Celebration 2015, that doesn't make it canon; otherwise, should I suppose that the Darth Vader hot air balloon is canon too? --LelalMekha (talk) 11:58, May 2, 2015 (UTC)

Copyvio problemsEdit

Much of the History section is OK, but the layout and modifications is a straight copy. I've used the introduction and infobox as a start for a replacement article in the temp page. Silly Dan 22:48, 31 May 2005 (UTC)

New Article Started on temp page

  • Yes, that's what I said. Silly Dan 01:49, 3 Jun 2005 (UTC)

Propose deleting this page and moving new article written on temp page here.

  • You would need to sign such a post, and start the process by adding the {{vfd}} tag to the article, but in this case vfd is not needed, as the copyrighted text can simply be replaced with non-infringing text.--Eion 18:14, 3 Jun 2005 (UTC)
    • Anyway, if I understand the copyvio procedure, we're supposed to wait seven days after the initial listing. I think the Outrider/Temp page is OK now, though, and we could move it to the main article page anytime. Silly Dan 20:52, 3 Jun 2005 (UTC)
      • I'm unfamiliar with any time constraints, I think if we have a non-infringing version ready, it should be edited in ASAP.--Eion 04:44, 4 Jun 2005 (UTC)
        • Agreed. The less time spent with an illegal page, the better off we are. jSarek 05:12, 4 Jun 2005 (UTC)
          • OK -- have put the temp page at the main article page. Silly Dan 12:14, 4 Jun 2005 (UTC)

Ep IV Pic Edit

Can anyone get a screenshot of its appearance in the ANH SE? Kuralyov 20:48, 1 Nov 2005 (UTC)

  • There's actually of pic of this screenshot as the main picture on the Mos Eisley article page, if anyone wanted to add it. Here's the link to the image page. Fett 06:02, 13 April 2008 (UTC)
    • I was going to add it just now, but the article is currently a bit overillustrated as is. Perhaps if the article were expanded somewhat, there'd be room. —Silly Dan (talk) 12:49, 13 April 2008 (UTC)


Should we make a Outrider/Canon page since it is in Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hope special edition.Red Duel 23:27, May 30, 2014 (UTC)

As of right now, in canon, the YT-2400 freighter that appears in Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hope is not the Outrider. User:Legobuilder3190 22:10, August 18, 2016

Pretty sure it's canon. If not, explain this link? 17:47, February 2, 2017 (UTC)

Outrider and rotating swing-arm mechanism (somewhat like the B-Wing fighter?) Edit

I could not help but notice that the toy model of the Outrider produced for the Shadows of the Empire project has the main hull that separates from port to stern with a rotating swing-arm mechanism (somewhat similar to what the B-Wing does). Images can be found here. The Secrets of Star Wars: Shadows of the Empire book (see pages 196-197) has two sketches of the Outrider spinning in this fashion made by LucasArts conceptual artist Doug Chiang, so this Outrider mechanism was not an invention of Hasbro/Kenner toy company.

What are your thoughts on the Outrider's "pivoting action" (as labelled by Doug Chiang) - should this feature be included in the article or should it be ignored as non-canonical BS? ---- Unsigned comment by (talk • contribs).

  • The Hasbro Outrider toy was based on concept art before the final ship design was established for the video game and Episode IV THX. The weapons mode remains non-canon because the concept was discarded. (And sign your comments with 4 tildes, not 4 dashes, next time;) GethralkinHyperwave 21:07, March 29, 2011 (UTC)

Outrider Stats Edit

I didn't know if anyone would want to put this up on the site article or not? We were talking about putting something like this up for the Slave 1 article and I found this on the same site while looking for a Slave 1 stats picture. I figured if you wanted to add it, then you could save it to the Wookieepedia images and add it to the article. Sadriel Fett (Mando'a) 04:46, 29 June 2006 (UTC)

  • I'd say put them on if there's room.Bredd13 19:54, 6 July 2006 (UTC)


Main picture isn't showing up. Bredd13 19:54, 6 July 2006 (UTC)

Might have something to do with it being named Eu_bg.jpg, the same name that all pics are given in the SW Databank.Toasty McGrath 18:46, 15 August 2006 (UTC)

Lego Outrider? Edit

Should it be mentioned that the Star Destroyer Lego Model's alternate form is the Outrider? I know it probably shouldn't be added but was just wondering.Shifter 23:26, 12 January 2007 (UTC)


I'm pretty sure it's appearance in Star Wars: Galactic Battlegrounds is non-canon. I made the change in the article. If it is canon, then obviously it should be changed back. Nyyankees8 17:06, 7 April 2007 (UTC)

Appearance in Star Wars: Bounty HunterEdit

The outrider has a very brief appearance in the opening cinematic of the game. When Outland Station first comes into view, the Outrider can be seen flying across the bottom of the screen from left to right, I believe. I believe this should be included in the trivia section. -- Interrupt feed 01:43, 15 April 2007 (UTC)

  • Is that the Outrider, or another ship of the same class? —Silly Dan (talk) 02:10, 15 April 2007 (UTC)
    • It has the same look as the Outrider. I don't know how to tell if it's the exact same vehicle that Dash flies, though. -- Interrupt feed 02:40, 15 April 2007 (UTC)

The Force Unleashed II Edit

In the cutscene showing the Attack on Kamino, when several TIE Fighters fly close to the screen, the Outrider, or similar ship, shoots them down.

Boarding RampEdit

Is the boarding ramp on the forward bracing arm, the rear bracing arm, or in between the two arms? It is not clear from the schematics.

DarthBill 20:55, March 4, 2012 (UTC)

Further On Down the Road Edit

Dash's page states that he was known to be active during the Yuuzhan Vong War, stopping Peace Brigade shipments or some such thing. Is that worth adding to the Outrider's page? Near-sighted Jedi (talk) 12:54, August 16, 2012 (UTC)

What was it ambushed by?Edit

Some time before the Battle of Yavin 4, the Outrider was smuggling cargo through the Maw when it was ambushed by two Galactic Empire.Compaq (talk) 17:11, April 27, 2013 (UTC)

180 Firing TurretEdit

I am very confused by the reference in the page about the 180 firing arc. I own the reference material and that line does not exist in there. Whoever wrote the original piece may have just been trying to be clear, but ended up making things more confusing.

To be clear, the "180º" alluded to is probably just saying that the dorsal turret is able to shoot at everything above it and the ventral turret can shoot at everything below it. I believe this line is confusing and makes it seem like it doesn't have a 360º turret that it most clearly does. With any evidence, in Shadows of the Empire, you could turn all the way around.

Is it possible to just remove this line, it seems to be doing more harm than good?

Does it's cameo in A New Hope's special edition make it canon, can a canon article be made? Matt Seay (talk) 04:35, August 8, 2014 (UTC)

  • Well, it is not called the Outrider on screen and AFAIK not in any new Canon Material. So no, the YT-2400 seen in ANH is now just an Unidentified Ship --Tuskin (talk) 22:39, November 15, 2014 (UTC)

Then should there be a tab that links to the canon ship like "Crossguard lightsaber"'s canon tab takes you to Kylo Ren's Lightsaber? Skywalker2255 (talk) 09:09, January 20, 2015 (UTC)

  • We don't have a name for the canon ship, so per the notability policy, we cannot create a page for it. Even if we could, it's not really notable anyway. It's a small ship we see for half a second; its only notability is in Legends. - Brandon Rhea(talk) 14:37, January 20, 2015 (UTC)

Canon, againEdit

Given the new Star Wars Canon, and the fact that George Lucas confirmed this ship as Canon, this ship should have a Canon page and a Legends page, with a reference on the Canon page along the lines of "The Outrider's name and owner is given in Star Wars Legends continuity." Unsigned comment by (talk • contribs).

  • See previous comment. Trip391 (talk) 16:55, February 8, 2015 (UTC)

Official interior setEdit

According to IGN, an interior model of the Outrider was made and the ship is officially part of Canon. A plaque confirms the ship's name is Outrider. Outrider's owner and anything it may have done outside of its "cameo" in A New Hope are still Legends material.Tanzeelat (talk) 21:56, April 30, 2015 (UTC)

  • I'm not sure I agree with IGN's assessment. Most of the props at Celebration were fan-made (Wikia had signs to go along with a number of them, which were built largely by the Belgian 501st). Plus, the display images that are actually being shown were the Millennium Falcon interior set, made by fans - and were marked as such at Celebration. I never saw any sort of Outrider set anywhere. Additionally, "officially-sanctioned" is not the same thing as "officially official" or whatever you want to call it. I'd like to see official confirmation that the name Outrider is canon before we add anything about it. Plus, even if we did add a canonical page about it, there's virtually nothing to say other than the fact that it flew over Mos Eisley. It's in the movie, yes, but it's only really notable in Legends. - Brandon Rhea(talk) 22:02, April 30, 2015 (UTC)

Titanium!? Edit

Does it actually say specifically that the armour was enforced with titanium? We know they have strong sci-fi alloys in Star Wars and titanium is only a little stronger and a little lighter than contemporary steel. 10:40, January 31, 2016 (UTC)

Rebels Recon #3.07: Inside 'Iron Squadron' Edit

In the latest Rebels Recon (4:00 in if the timestamp doesn't work) Pablo Hidalgo revealed that the design of the YT-2400 was actually created for the Special Edition first and then used by the SOTE project as Dash Rendar's ship (not the other way around as currently stated). I'm not sure how to update the BtS section but I thought I'd make people aware. Thanks! RogueIce (talk) 02:44, November 21, 2016 (UTC)

Size Dimensions of the Outrider This page is the only one with weird dimensions. The Legends YT-2400 is 18.65 long x 28.5m wide, but the page for the Outrider itself uses pre-Millennium Falcon Owner's Workshop Manual figures.

Shouldn't it be updated to have the same figures as the standard YT-2400? -- 09:27, December 23, 2019 (UTC)
