Canonicity[]

This is T cannon, right? While there may be some dispute on it's canonicity, the presence of things from the cartoon, such as Hosk Station in NJO, and Admiral Screed in HoloNet news, seems to indicate that this should be counted as cannon. --User:SFH

  • Nope, only the parts that are mentioned elsewhere. That's what happened to "Splinter of the Mind's Eye" and other S-canon sources. What doesn't contradict gets put into official continuity. VT-16 02:00, 5 Nov 2005 (UTC)
    • OTOH, there's nothing saying that the droids weren't lost by Captain Antilles for a brief period, that they didn't end up having wacky adventures in the interim, and that Artoo didn't have a "breakdance mode" installed...8) — Silly Dan 02:10, 5 Nov 2005 (UTC)
  • Actually, since we acknowledge one aspect of it, we have to acknowledge all of it. You can't pick and choose on matters of canon (something Curtis Saxton doesn't seem to understand). -- SFH 02:15, 5 Nov 2005 (UTC)
    • No, not everything in older sources is necessarily canon. Otherwise we'd have to accept the original ending of the novel "Splinter in the Mind's Eye", where Vader is killed by Luke and he is not his father. However, I never said the events of "Droids" is non-canon, just that they are in a gray area as an S-canon source. I should have mentioned the OS databank putting in some of these elements last year, thus making at least some aspects õf the series still relevant. VT-16 14:32, 5 Nov 2005 (UTC)
    • Well, before we get into one of these silly canon arguments. I'd just like to venture a) IIRC Droids is more canon that VT-16 thinks. b) Curtis Saxton is less keen on throwing out sources than one might think (since his website does use a lot of material from the Holiday Special). Regardless, it's pretty much moot. QuentinGeorge 02:21, 5 Nov 2005 (UTC)
  • I was mostly talking about the Endor Holocaust, but I was merely stating a private opinion. I won't bring it up again...at least not on this page. -- SFH 02:25, 5 Nov 2005 (UTC)
    • Indeed. On that matter I agree with you. But notably, Saxton makes quite an attempt to rationalise his theory with canon works which depict post-ROTJ Endor. (Of course, this doesn't make it true, either) QuentinGeorge 02:27, 5 Nov 2005 (UTC)
      • He should be informed of the non-canonization of Chief Bast's survival after the DS, since it was confirmed by Leland Chee that he didn't survive the explosion. I doubt Saxton scours the net for this kind of information. VT-16 14:35, 5 Nov 2005 (UTC)

What exactly is the concern? It's being treated just like any other source, with frequent but nontrivial references to it in other sources (Roon, Bogden, Admiral Screed, Mungo Baobab) and even retcons for errors involving it (the R-22 Spearhead, the two kinds of Annoo-dat). I've seen no evidence pointing to it being treated any differently than other works. jSarek 12:55, 5 Nov 2005 (UTC)

  • I suppose the concern is threefold. First off, it's an older and relatively obscure source (an objection which no longer really holds now that it's been partly reissued on DVD.) Second, it was aimed at kids, so some may not think of it as "real" Star Wars (but we'd have to reject Jar Jar from continuity if we did that). Finally, the objection most people have is that we have to imagine two events into the timeline (the droids getting lost and then returning to Alderaan) which haven't yet appeared in any film, comic book, TV series, video game, RPG supplement, Essential Guide, etc. — Silly Dan 13:23, 5 Nov 2005 (UTC)
    • I think I should note that the back of the 2004 DVD of droids puts it at 15 BBY. That's pretty much a clear statement that they accept it into C-Canon. Adamwankenobi 17:53, 6 Nov 2005 (UTC)

Dude...Vader didn't die in the end of "Splinter in the Mind's Eye," and his biological relationship with Luke is never touched upon. --Promus Kaa 04:26, 6 September 2006 (UTC)

Copy from wikipedia[]

Just to let you know, I'm going to copy my updated version from wikipedia of this, as well as Ewoks, and those for the two Ewok films. Adamwankenobi 16:22, 6 Nov 2005 (UTC)

  • Yes, those four articles are a bit lacking here. Try not to copy over top of the old articles -- better to add new text to the existing article. — Silly Dan 16:25, 6 Nov 2005 (UTC)
    • Well, as those articles here seem to have not really changed that much from when they were originally copied from wikipedia, nothing will be lost, as far I can see. The versions at wikipedia are much more comprehensice and descriptive. You might also want to check out my recent changes to Expanded Universe, as I also re-copied it from wikipedia, as it has been worked on extensively by a few editors lately and covers it better. Adamwankenobi 16:33, 6 Nov 2005 (UTC)

Nar Shaddaa[]

When is Nar Shaddaa shown in the series? -- SFH 18:20, 31 Dec 2005 (UTC)

  • I'm guessing that someone confused Nar Shaddaa with Hosk Station. Kuralyov 19:46, 31 Dec 2005 (UTC)
  • There is a separate article covering the Kalarba Adventures and I don't see a reason why topics from that separate story-line should be inluded here? Also, note that Dark Horse's comics were printed 8-9 years after the original Nelvana series. While they touch on the concept of the series, they feature very different artwork and include places like Nar Shaddaa, which appeared in other media. So I think these places should go.

Continuity problems[]

Maybe now that the problem has been fully solved, we should delete the whole section, or at least trim it a bit? IT's not that important any more. MoffRebus 23:32, 5 July 2006 (UTC)

  • I think it should be kept in order to show the initial confusion and errors (for historical purposes) the series caused before it was retconned. AdamwankenobiTalk to me! My home. 23:45, 5 July 2006 (UTC)
    • I thought it worth nothing the droids' reunion with Bail Organa in the Rebels episode "Droids in Distress". My edit was reverted by AV-6R7--maybe you thought it was more appropriate on the Rebels episode page? I think it belongs here, as it is resolves the (later) continuity issue for this series, but isn't that important in the context of Rebels. UpdateNerd (talk) 08:30, August 31, 2017 (UTC)
      • You DO know that this is Legends while Droids in Distress is Canon, right? Weedle McHairybug (talk) 09:59, August 31, 2017 (UTC)
        • Oh absolutely. My thinking is that since Rebels is canon, it should be referenced in this relevant instance. The other way around wouldn't make sense, since Droids is Legends and not relevant to the higher continuity. UpdateNerd (talk) 23:43, September 14, 2017 (UTC)

Canon Types[]

What's "C-Canon" and "S-Canon?" If someone could explain the differences between them, and other types, I would appreciate it. --Promus Kaa 00:48, 6 September 2006 (UTC)

  • Check out our article on Star Wars canon. It explains it all. -- Ozzel 01:30, 6 September 2006 (UTC)

Thanks bro!! I appreciate it. :D --Promus Kaa 04:20, 6 September 2006 (UTC)

Theme Song/Credits Video[]

Does anyone have either one or both on the computer?? I have a couple of the old videos that have it, but the newer video release didn't, which kinda bummed me out. I really liked the original opening. --Promus Kaa 00:49, 6 September 2006 (UTC)

  • http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zJjjx3c1fJk This intro should not have been omitted in the later releases, and the original soundtrack should also have been kept. I have an old video of it, but I can't find it, blast it all... --Promus Kaa 04:21, 6 September 2006 (UTC)

Yay!! I found the tape!! --Promus Kaa 18:23, 20 September 2006 (UTC)

Run time[]

I recently got copies of the original episodes, and none of them are longer than 24 minutes. I went ahead and changed the run time from "approx. 30 min. per episode" to "approx. 24 min. per episode" Fank 00:10, 24 November 2007 (UTC)

They should really put all the episodes of the Star Wars: Droids series onto a DVD because a lot of people would like to watch/own it that never got the chance and others that did get the chance would also probably want to watch/own them, too. I know I would like to watch them and I never got the chance and so would my dad and most of my friends.(Theforceisstrongwiththisone 03:51, October 9, 2011 (UTC)A.J.Theforceisstrongwiththisone 03:51, October 9, 2011 (UTC))

This is a show, so it should logically be T cannon, right?--24.89.196.49 22:27, April 16, 2012 (UTC)
