Considering Tarkin died in the Death Star explosion, do we have enough to assume this novel's placement is in the 'Rise of the Empire' era? I ask because I'd like to make a semi-large edit to the canon timeline of media --Darth R2-D2, Dark Lord of the Droids (talk) 13:14, May 12, 2014 (UTC)

At this present moment in time, we are unsure if the current publishing eras apply to the new canon books being released. - Sir Cavalier of OneFarStar(Squadron channel) 13:21, May 12, 2014 (UTC)
So no? --Darth R2-D2, Dark Lord of the Droids (talk) 13:29, May 12, 2014 (UTC)
I would say so at the moment until we get a clear indication of whether or not the new canon will even have publishing eras. - Sir Cavalier of OneFarStar(Squadron channel) 14:00, May 12, 2014 (UTC)

Interdictor classes?Edit

The appearances section lists the Immoblizer 418 Interdictor Cruiser, CC-2200 Detainer Interdictor Cruiser, and CC-7700 Interdictor Frigate. Are all of these actually mentioned in the book or does it just mention Interdictors as a blanket term?

Asmeru and Canon/Legends Edit

I have no prior experience editing on wookieepedia, but while reading Tarkin found references to Asmeru, which has a page currently classified as Legends, and Q'anah, both a person and a holiday celebrated on the 234th day of the Asmeru calendar, in the 16th month, page 52. All of these seem worthy of a page, but I don't really know what I'm doing, particularly with the mix of canon and Legends. I'm just thoroughly interested in fictional holidays and would hate for this one to stay invisible to the internet. And then four tildes? 17:24, December 15, 2014 (UTC)

Canon/Legends pointsEdit

I have read into a fourth of the book. Certain events in the Clone Wars TV Program - e.g. Trench, his Flagship, Ahsoka Tano, her Trials, etc - have been listed in the book. Would this not classify some, if not all elements of the TV Program, are considered canon because the Book is? Wouldn't it therefore be imprudent that those elements be still called Legend pages? Or not have their own appropriate Canon articles? Hubris 12:52, January 5, 2015 (UTC)

  • Anything depicted in the Clone Wars tv program is considered canon, and several of the pages you listed already have canon articles. The rest should do but we haven't got round to making them yet, feel free to have a go at making them yourself if you wish to. Ayrehead02 (talk) 13:48, January 5, 2015 (UTC)
    • Yes, The Clone Wars film, the entire TV series, The Lost Missions, and The Clone Wars Legacy stories are all official canon. - Brandon Rhea(talk) 16:29, January 5, 2015 (UTC)
      • Oh, and to be clear, the reason that you're seeing Legends pages is because most material from the Clone Wars TV series still also falls under what we consider the "Legends continuity." Thus, those items receive both a Legends entry and a Canon one. This is because those subjects may have material within that only appeared in Legends, or need to link to other subjects which have a large amount of Legends material.

        • Professor, I have noticed pages like that, but there are some pages that lack what you described. One of them I pointed out: Invincible, there is absolutely no need to get defensive, mistakes are made and things overlooked. - Hubris 22:26, January 9, 2015 (UTC)
          • That simply means it hasn't been created yet. There are plenty of canonical pages that we still need to be create. Only a small handful of Wookieepedia editors work on canon (most people here prefer Legends/the EU), so it's slow-going. So, the lack of Invincible doesn't mean it's not already canon, just that we don't have a page for it yet. - Brandon Rhea(talk) 22:56, January 9, 2015 (UTC)
            • Exactly. Not trying to be defensive, just trying to explain how it works. There are 100s if not 1000s of subjects that exist in both Legends and Canon and will eventually need to have both pages, but only a limited amount of time and a limited number of people working to post them. And priority often tends to be given to things that are considered more important or more prominent, i.e. Luke Skywalker, or whatever happens to strike the random fantasy or amusement of the editor at the time. ProfessorTofty (talk) 00:57, January 10, 2015 (UTC)
              • Tis true. I am currently working on anything related to the Canon version of Saleucami. Just find something that strikes your fancy. - AV-6R7User talk:AV-6R7 01:10, January 10, 2015 (UTC)

So I noticed reading that parts of the book reference events which take place in other books by this same author. For example, The Rise of Darth Vader is clearly referenced when Palpatine refers to Vader's prior mission to Murkhana, and references are made to Plagueis as well, particularly the inclusion of 11-4D. Does this retroactively make these Legacy books Canon?

  • No. Those books are still Legends. The purpose of the Legends brand, other than freeing the canon for new movies, is that the events and subjects within them might be true. The old stories themselves are not considered canon, but writers can still pull things from those old stories. - Brandon Rhea(talk) 03:40, April 10, 2015 (UTC)

Palpatine's private office Edit

Where in novel does it state that the Emperor turned the Council Chamber into his private office?--Professor Ambrius (talk) 19:46, April 7, 2018 (UTC)
