BlasTech EC-17 Edit

The new Ultimate Star Wars Encyclopedia (page 257) which is considered to be canon identifies the Scout Trooper pistol as a BlasTech EC-17.--Dutch You SOB (talk) 16:21, July 2, 2015 (UTC)

  • I have been up and down every Star Wars book I own and I am amazed it took 32 years to assign a make and model to this weapon. Alas it appears "Ultimate Star Wars" (c. 2015) is the first publication to assign this weapon a name, I concur, and likewise find this fact disgraceful. -- Frank V Bonura 02:35, August 19, 2016 (UTC)
  • I would further note, the RPG stats for this weapon match the stats for the Model Q2 hold-out blaster pistol manufactured by SoroSuub in spite of newer artwork that speaks to the contrary. It is a shame West End Games never officially named the weapon I suspect was assumed to be the Q2 by too many authors who simply copy/pasted Scout Trooper stats. -- Frank V Bonura 02:43, August 19, 2016 (UTC)
