How do we know it's Legends? -- 11:53, June 13, 2014 (UTC)

Yeah I am wondering... is this canon or legends? I feel like this might be a aspect of the legends continuity... but I dont know... I just dont. ralok (talk) 05:43, June 30, 2014 (UTC)
Although official confirmation would be nice, I'd say it'd be safe to assume this is canon, and as such the first reference book for the new canon. Granted, that is judging solely on the fact it is being released after the reboot. --Clonehunter(Report your W.M.D.) 19:31, July 2, 2014 (UTC)
We're now certain it's Legends, since it's been stated on the official Becker&mayer! Books Facebook account—as can be seen here. --Lelal Mekha Old Republic military symbol (Audience Room) 17:23, September 16, 2014 (UTC)

"Never Before Seen"Edit

The book is essentially a rehash of the old Imperial Sourcebook, bent around to fit the Prequels and TCW, with a dash of Rebels thrown in (some pictures of Kallus and notable vehicles from the show). There is actually quite little that is "new." 17:56, November 19, 2014 (UTC)

Double Checking canon status? Edit

I recently got to look at a copy of this book briefly, and I noticed there was... quite a few references to stuff that was being released in Canon... and little legends material as far as I could tell. While it has been confirmed as LEgends, the fact that it has so much stuff inspired from canon, and the fact that it was the publisher rather than writers or editors on the book that confirmed its status... I dont think it would hurt to double check the canon status with members of the storyboard via social media if possible... just saying. ralok (talk) 08:33, January 19, 2016 (UTC)

  • No need. They've already confirmed it's Legends. Canon got in because it was in a nebulous/grey area time for publishing, but it's already been officially confirmed as Legends. - Brandon Rhea(talk) 13:01, January 19, 2016 (UTC)
    • Yet they still had at most seven months to correct this. Seriously, the legends/canon split occurred in April. This was released in October, with preorders starting in July. That's MORE than enough time to fix up any "canon" elements that got inserted into the book by mistake. This is why I largely disagree with Cade Calrayn and the others insistence on treating it as an error. It would only work as an error if the book was released a day or two after the canon/legends split, maybe a week tops. Weedle McHairybug (talk) 15:37, January 22, 2016 (UTC)
      • And as I pointed out, it was the publisher that confirmed it was Legends and not a member of the story group... The publisher as the group the merely prints the book might not be aware of the finer details of the legends/canon divide... I dont see any issue in double checking with someone who would definitely know for sure whether the book is canon or not. I just think that there is too much doubt with the confirmation coming from the publisher. ralok (talk) 01:16, January 24, 2016 (UTC)
        • We try to avoid asking the Story Group questions whenever possible, since we don't want to bother them and we know that they treat canon differently than we do sometimes (we try to conform everything into neat little boxes—they do not). In this case, the publisher's word is sufficient. If they didn't know the answer to the question, they wouldn't have answered it—or they would have told people to ask the Story Group. They're not going to make up information. So if the publisher said it's Legends, it's Legends. - Brandon Rhea(talk) 02:31, January 24, 2016 (UTC)
          • If those were the only possible options I would agree with you, but its equally possible that they just looked up what "legends" meant and only took a brief glance and assumed it meant that all books were Legends. ralok (talk) 02:42, January 24, 2016 (UTC)
