I saw on normal Wikipedia that he "narrowly escaped Byss." Any idea where this is from?

  • We haven't heard anything about Pestage after his death when Byss was destroyed by the Galaxy Gun. --SparqMan 21:19, 18 Jun 2005 (UTC)
    • Interesting. Wonder where that Wiki information came from, then. Thanos6


Isn't it the wrong way round, or is that purposeful? 10:34, 26 January 2006 (UTC)


His work with Palpatine began early in the Emperor's senate career, but where is his home world stated as Naboo? --SparqMan 21:32, 18 Jun 2005 (UTC)

  • Cloak of Deception states that Palpatine brought him to Coruscant from Naboo when he became Senator. He also appears in an early Naboo story with Panaka - forgot the name of it. QuentinGeorge 23:47, 18 Jun 2005 (UTC)
    • Actually, that short story ("Monster") calls him "Sate Pestage of Coruscant" and makes repeated reference to his Coruscanti background. I'll fix the homeworld box. --GrandAdmiralJello 11:43, 21 May 2007 (UTC)


Is he suppposed to have been one of the people Palps was talking to in the Death Star throne room in Return of the Jedi? Kuralyov

I think so, the artwork i've seen of him resembles one of the Imperial Dignitary characters. --Shane613 17:54, 11 Jul 2005 (UTC)


Did he actually take the title of Emperor, or was he just in control of the Empire? — Silly Dan 02:08, 26 Jul 2005 (UTC)

  • I believe the latter. --SparqMan 02:11, 26 Jul 2005 (UTC)
    • The succession box should be amended to "Emperor" (Defacto) or something like that, since I don't recall that any of the post-Palpatine rulers ever formally claimed the title (maybe Isard, I dunno). QuentinGeorge 05:38, 26 Jul 2005 (UTC)
      • Triculus claimed it, IIRC. --SparqMan 11:32, 26 Jul 2005 (UTC)
        • As did Kadann and Xandel Carivus. Thanos6 01:54, 28 Jul 2005 (UTC)
  • NEC has him taking the title of Emperor. Kuralyov 02:45, 26 February 2006 (UTC)


The clone thing is not fanon speculation, it confirmed in Xwing books and in Fact FilesJustinGann 06:18, 11 Dec 2005 (UTC)

First AppearanceEdit

What was Pestages first appearance? -- SFH 01:22, 17 Dec 2005 (UTC)


NEC seems to say that the real Pestage was the one strangled 9to death) by Krennel. Kuralyov 02:45, 26 February 2006 (UTC)

  • Well, NEC has screwed up some other things. But, if it's true, than the Pestage on Byss is, in fact, a clone. Admiral J. Nebulax (talk) 13:04, 26 February 2006 (UTC)

Empire Strikes Back scene?Edit

If this scene was indeed filmed, any idea who played the part of Pestage/Molock? Thanos6 14:02, 18 January 2007 (UTC)


I give up. "SAYT pess-TAYJ"? "SAW-tay pes-TAW-jay"? "SAYT PESS-todge"? Enochf 13:24, 23 January 2007 (UTC)

  • I'd say the first one. —Grand Admiral J. Nebulax (Imperial Holovision) Imperial Emblem 20:43, 23 January 2007 (UTC)
    • NEGTC says SAYT p's-TAHJ. Edit: I think! See Ataru's post below. FWIW, the audiobook of Cloak of Deception pronounced it p's-TAHJ.Gonk (Gonk!) 17:26, 29 March 2007 (UTC)

Evidence for identification in ROtJ promo shot?Edit

Similar to my objections on the Sate Pestage page, there's nothing linking one of the unidentified Imperial Advisors in the old promo shot to Sate Pestage. The Ask the Jedi Council feature doesnt support the linkage to Pestage, and the individual in question doesnt really look like Pestage. The AtJC feature gave no mechanism for attributing any of the names listed, with the men in the picture. Finally, as Pestage (and Dangor) were not on the Death Star II with the Emperor, niether of them are in the picture.--Jerry 22:18, 19 March 2007 (UTC)

  • Of course, if someone has an actual source attributing this to Sate, by all means put the picture back.--Jerry 22:22, 19 March 2007 (UTC)
    • 1) The faces of Sate Pestage in the RotJ promotional shot is practically identical to the main image of Pestage. 2) It is a promotional shot, and not from the movie itself. We know Pestage was on Coruscant during the Battle of Endor. Even so, who's to say that Pestage didn't fly out and then return to Coruscant? —Grand Admiral J. Nebulax (Imperial Holovision) Imperial Emblem 22:26, 19 March 2007 (UTC)
      • SATE.JPG

There's another picture of Sate Pestage. Looks NOTHING like the individual in the image. And frankly, I don't see a great resemblance between the NEGtC image and the promo, besides the Miter. In any case, like I said, the old ATJC Feature at TOS (and now in the Q&A feature on the site) does NOT claim that the men listed are the men in the image, nor does it provide a mechanism for any sort of identification if that was the intention. Frankly, you are entirely speculative when you attribute that image to Sate Pestage. The fact that its possible that he went to Endor only to leave immediately is speculation. And since, as I stated above, there's nothing conclusive pinpointing that individual as Pestage, there's no reason to have that picture up there.--Jerry 22:36, 19 March 2007 (UTC)

Their faces are not remotely alike. One has high cheek bones and a tight cheeks, the other, non-descriptive cheekbones, and jowls. Tight lips versus broad lips, wide nose versus small nose. They really look nothing alike if you discount the clothing. Pestage looks far more like this character: http://img510.( image shack dot U S )/my.php?image=innercircle1nf4.jpg , who is identified by Decipher as Sim Aloo, than he does the man to his right. You can't see that? Do others besides Admiral Jack find me and my reasoning untenable? Theres no CANON proof or even a real suggestion that this character is Sate Pestage. They DON'T look alike. --Jerry 02:55, 20 March 2007 (UTC)

Biography SyntaxEdit

The first line was in Yoda Syntax, I just sorted it. Admiral Paul 21:13, 24 March 2009 (UTC)

Real DeathEdit

The Essential Atlas, the most recent source, along with other sources, states that Pestage was killed on Ciutric IV after taking control of the Ciutric Hegemony. Can we state that as his real death and the death on Byss as the death of his clone?--Jen'ari Xer'lyx 20:47, March 16, 2010 (UTC)

Rinzler's The Making of The Empire.... Edit

If Pestage had been filmed in a scene for Empire then surely it would've been documented here? Its so well written and seems to miss nothing at all, what do others think? --The Mercenary 73 (talk) 22:51, December 19, 2012 (UTC)

  • Be BOLD. If that's true, it needs to be in the article. NaruHina Talk Anakinsolo 23:11, December 19, 2012 (UTC)

Tarkin AppearanceEdit

Shouldn't there be a canon tab for this article since Sate Pestage appears in the Tarkin novel? ( 23:33, April 22, 2015 (UTC))
