Walkers

I notice that you've been doing a lot of work on the various walker articles. I thought that you might like to know that there is in fact an article about walkers in general. Perhaps you would be interested in putting walkers on that list and linking each article back there rather than having a seperate list on each article. -- Aidje 11:22, 15 Apr 2005 (EDT)

Oh, and by the way: Welcome to Wookieepedia. :-) Aidje 11:24, 15 Apr 2005 (EDT)

Ah, thank you, I didn´t see that. Will try to fix that. And thanks for the welcome :)
I did notice something when I went through the entries, I believe there are two entries on the Executor, each linking from different places. It´s possible one is about Super Star Destroyers in general (encompassing all ships over the Star Destroyer scale), but some info on the Executor seemed to be posted twice. It was a few days ago, so I´m not sure if you´ve noticed and possibly corrected/moved that info. Just wanted to let you know. VT-16 10:47, 16 Apr 2005 (UTC)
I think that we do have an article on Executor and an article on Super Star Destroyers. I'll check it out and see if there's any Executor specific info that doesn't belong in the SSD article. -- Aidje 19:04, 16 Apr 2005 (UTC)

Preview

Might I give some advice on saving articles. We do have a preview feature that you can use before saving and then finding something else to change. -- Riffsyphon1024 23:09, 16 Apr 2005 (UTC)

I do use that, and just forgot to do several things at once on the 'walker'-list. VT-16 16:17, 17 Apr 2005 (UTC)

Minor edits

Why is it that you mark all of your changes to List of vehicles in Star Wars as minor? You seem to be overusing the 'minor' flag, in my opinion. I know that whether or not an edit is minor depends largely on personal opinion, but you might want to check out Wikipedia:Wikipedia:Minor edit. – Aidje talk 16:47, 11 May 2005 (UTC)

Oh, I´m sorry, I got so used to putting 'minor' for every little thing I changed on the 'vehicle-list', when I did something big (like rearranging the names to go from smaller to bigger vehicles etc.) I guess I must have put minor automatically. Sorry. :\ VT-16 17:03, 11 May 2005 (UTC)
  • I see. You are correct that many of the edits that you do on that article would be considered 'minor,' so I can see how a habit would develop. It doesn't actually concern me very much, but it might bother some people (especially if anyone else ever comes and decides to do a lot of work with vehicles, like you do). – Aidje talk 17:20, 11 May 2005 (UTC)
    • Haha, I actually had to restrain myself from marking the previous reply as 'minor'. I´ll try to evaluate better what might constitute as minor and what should be significant. VT-16 17:23, 11 May 2005 (UTC)

Movie titles

Hey VT-16. Please do not un-italicize movie titles in articles. As per the formating conventions of Wikipedia, movie and book titles are italicized. Read this for more information. --SparqMan 15:59, 27 May 2005 (UTC)

Sources

Hey VT-16. Please be sure that when you begin an article, such as T1-B Hovertank or T3-B Heavy Attack Tank, that you include the appearances you're basing your contributions on as well as sources you're using for specific information. It's important to get new articles off to a solid start. Thanks. --SparqMan 18:20, 15 Jun 2005 (UTC)

Empire at War units

No problem, mon! I got the names from screenshots on this website: [1]. The images are from a recent German games convention.30px Shadowtrooper talk 18:33, 30 Aug 2005 (UTC)

  • Yeah, I looked around after posting that and found them after a while. But thanks anyway! :D VT-16 18:38, 30 Aug 2005 (UTC)
  • Oh, by the way, I remembered an old question you posted on the AT-AT discussion page, about the size of the XR-85. Gave my opinion on it. (Even though it was a few months too late ^^;;) VT-16 18:44, 30 Aug 2005 (UTC)

Firing Arcs

Could I ask that you please don't edit out firing arcs and ranges for weapons please? I'm planning on adding them for as many ships as I can.

  • Oh, I'm sorry, I thought they were simply RPG game mechanics. If they're not, I won't touch them :) VT-16 18:59, 17 Nov 2005 (UTC)
  • They are game mechanics, but I guess as long as they don't conflict with other information, they can provide some added insight. --SparqMan 19:10, 17 Nov 2005 (UTC)
    • Its just that some of them seem unintelligable if you're not into playing the RPG in the first place. I hope some of the definitions get explained at least. (That and some of the ranges can seem pretty small). But, yeah, where it doesn't conflict with other sources, feel free to add it. VT-16 19:23, 17 Nov 2005 (UTC)
      • Yeah as stated, they are game mechanics, but they're also rather handy for some anal-retentive fanfilm makers, and people who do the message board based story RP'ing. I just figured we might as well have them wherever we can. Oh and sorry for not signing the last entry. :) -Jaymach Ral'Tir 20:01, 17 Nov 2005 (UTC)
        • That's ok. :) VT-16 20:03, 17 Nov 2005 (UTC)

Ship classification

  • I have locked the Ship classification page until the dispute is resolved. Please see the discussion for further info. QuentinGeorge 23:39, 25 Nov 2005 (UTC)
    • Yep, saw it and gave my opinion in the talk-page. VT-16 23:41, 25 Nov 2005 (UTC)
  • Hey VT-16. I'm trying to help QuentinGeorge in the despute resolution at Ship classification. I've read over your brief argument, but while it sums your polemics, it does not give me an understanding of what you would like to see the article contain. Can you please draft a quick outline of the points you think should be included (not what should not)? Please cite specific sources for each point where possible. Just e-mail it to me (my username @gmail.com) or leave it on my talk page. Thanks. --SparqMan 17:33, 3 Dec 2005 (UTC)
    • I'm busy with a school project right now, but I'll provide some quick points in a day or two. :) VT-16 21:11, 3 Dec 2005 (UTC)
      • I've leapt in here. What I'm going to suggest is that the two of us get together on IM and try to work out what would be acceptable to both of us. That would be my preferred solution. If you have a TF.N username, then PM me for my IM (alternatively, a couple of the Admins here have my AIM)... --McEwok 17:33, 4 Dec 2005 (UTC)
        • Okay, I've not heard back from you, so I've thrown together a draft, and put it up for discussion here. I am entirely serious when I say I think we work better batting ideas back and forth than butting heads against each other. We can fix this - right? --McEwok 11:57, 12 Dec 2005 (UTC)

Rebel personnel carrier

first, thx for making an article on this neglected vehicle!

I have put some new pics on the page, and now it looks kinda cluttered, which of them should we keep and which get off? The uppermost one looks poor quality sorta.JustinGann 03:22, 10 Dec 2005 (UTC)

  • Yeah, I was hoping someone would find a better pic. Thanks. Btw, I've never seen that shot of Luke before, I know there's a cut-scene with him riding it, but I've never seen it from that angle before. Almost looks like there's room for another person inside. And I didn't find the "gun sled" in the ITW:OT or CLOSW books, but there is a vehicle that almost matches its design, called a "laser ice-cutter" (used for carving out the caves of Echo Base). In fact, it looks almost exactly the same. I think I'll mention that. VT-16 11:41, 10 Dec 2005 (UTC)
    • Hmm, I looked into the Ultimate Locations book, ath the Echo Base foldout, and to my surprise, this vehicle is twice labeled, once as personnel carrier, and once as flight crew shuttle. Looks like personnel carrier actually is a canon name! Good guess, VT-16JustinGann 12:05, 10 Dec 2005 (UTC)
      • Hmmm, actually, contrasting the pics, are you sure these are the same vehicles? The laser cannon pics seem to have a rounded front, whereas the personnel carrier has a boxish front (and rear). Also, the laser cutter has small rectangles along the side, but the personnel carrier has very large boxes (fewer in number). Maybe the laser ice-cutter should be a separate page entirely?JustinGann 12:10, 10 Dec 2005 (UTC)
        • Yes, there's two different names for the boxy carrier, and I've known the ice-cutter being different for a long time (but didn't want to make a separate page just for that.) Seeing as you did make a new one, that might be alright after all, since we already accept plenty of articles with less info about their subjects. ;) And I checked CLOSW before writing a new name for it, so that wasn't a guess. VT-16 12:41, 10 Dec 2005 (UTC)

ReL CR20

Yeah, it's the transport taken to the Rand Ecliptic (If I remember correctly; it might have been shown leaving). It wasn't stated, but it looks identical, and the comic came out during the time design work was being done for Clone Wars. But for all I know maybe I'm wrong. Kuralyov 19:30, 19 Dec 2005 (UTC)

  • Looking at it now, I think it's possible it's a CR20, but the shots all show similar looking ships that are more rounded in design. There's not enough to say for sure, unfortunately, but since the CR25 has been shown in the Imperial era, I'm sure the CR20 also appeared. Bit unsure about this... VT-16 19:35, 19 Dec 2005 (UTC)

Positive Feedback

No problem bro (or sis) for cleaning up your Battle of the Dune Sea article. I looove videogames and I know all the missions. And thank YOU for being one of the few people to give me a positive comment. I appreciate it. Wolfdog 23:33, 29 Dec 2005 (UTC)


Real names

I don't know if you keep posting McEwok's real name just to annoy him or not, but he has asked you to stop. You didn't listen to him, so now I'm asking you to stop, and to remove his real name from your userpage. Some people don't like having their real name broadcasted over the internet. Thank you. StarNeptune 01:39, 2 Jan 2006 (UTC)

  • That's strange, since his name can be seen readily on several SW-related pages already, in conjunction with his alias. If he wants to seperate his RL-self from an internet-persona, then I guess he's entitled to the safety this brings. Very well. VT-16 19:05, 2 Jan 2006 (UTC)
  • I post my name on my user page, but it's generally considered good form to call a user by whatever he or she calls him or herself. It's always safe to call them by their user name, or whatever name they have altered their signature to display. --SparqMan 19:09, 2 Jan 2006 (UTC)
  • I see you've been warned about posting real-life info already...now, another complaint has been brought to an admin's attention. This is your last warning. Next time, you will be suspended from the site. If someone don't want it known here, then it will not be known here. Regardless of what you may or may not be able to find somewhere else on the internet. WhiteBoy 00:50, 5 Jan 2006 (UTC)
  • I should add that a major part of the issue here is that they got the wrong guy. The "McEwok" who uses the name now isn't the "McEwok" who put his personal details on the web back in the day: in the past few years, this identity has been part of a project by a 'hive-mind' group of fans, modeled partly on the Italian anarchist "author" Luther Blisset. There's only one of me now - just, a different "me". --McEwok 03:27, 9 Jan 2006 (UTC)
    • Actually, "McEwok" or whatever his real name is, is nothing more than a lying, deceitful piece of shit. He's either lying everyone straight in the face about this "hive-mind" he's supposedly part of, or they're all using the same BT IP address. I wonder what his supervisors have to say about him wasting time on this site, rather than finishing up his RL assignments? VT-16 19:27, 11 Jan 2006 (UTC)
      • I wouldn't go that far and if you continue this, you will be temporarily banned per remarks about other users. -- Riffsyphon1024 20:49, 11 Jan 2006 (UTC)
        • /me takes a deep breath. VT-16, in case I didn't make myself clear: the "McEwok" identity is no longer associated with the defunct "hive-mind" project. I was part of that group; the person whose details you got hold of was too. Sorry to intrude in your Talk page: I just feel obliged to make that clear. --McEwok 02:12, 12 Jan 2006 (UTC)

GR-45

Hey, I was going through the Wookieepedia:Images and media for deletion and one of the images is your File:GR-45.jpg. I don't see an article on the GR-45 and was wondering if you were planning on using this pic or not. If not, I'll go ahead and delete it. Thanks.  :) WhiteBoy 07:10, 15 Jan 2006 (UTC)

  • NVM...article and duplicate image found. Dunno why "GR-45" wasn't turning anything up in the search.  ??? WhiteBoy 08:43, 15 Jan 2006 (UTC)
    • That's strange. Could be that I uploaded the same picture with different names without realizing it. VT-16 11:22, 16 Jan 2006 (UTC)

Legacy

can you add the legacy-class star destroyer

  • Only if you've got any kind of official source with that name. Otherwise, it would be fanon, I'm afraid. VT-16 16:05, 20 January 2006 (UTC)
    • Confirmed fanon, this guy's added it several times. See Talk:Legacy-class Star Destroyer. --Imp 16:07, 20 January 2006 (UTC)
      • Oh, I remember that ship. It was the fan-made 3D image based on quick glimpses of the Venator in ROTS. I have to admit, at the time I almost liked that fan-take on it more than the official design, but I've come to accept it. However, that mesh was and still is fanon. Sorry. VT-16 16:11, 20 January 2006 (UTC)

Infoboxes

Hey, I've noticed you updated a lot of vehicle articles with the revised infoboxes -- good work. The thing is, part of the idea for the new design is that we can omit fields from the infobox that we either don't know or that don't apply to that particular article. I noticed on some of your edits that you left a number of fields blank, which we don't really want. Also, using the lengthy infobox may not be the best idea for small articles. I know the project page wasn't very detailed in its instructions, and I apologize for that (I did just update it, though). If you want to discuss this further, please use the project talk page. Thanks. RMF 22:01, 7 February 2006 (UTC)

  • With the old system, I always cut down on empty parts, I didn't realise that was the intention here as well. Is it possible to add additional fields, too, if wanted? VT-16 22:08, 7 February 2006 (UTC)
    • Yes. Usually it won't be necessary, because what we're trying to do is create an exhaustive list on the project page, and then crop that down for each individual article. If you have any fields in particular you want to add, just post on the appropriate talk page. RMF 22:14, 7 February 2006 (UTC)
      • The only think I was thinking of adding, was a 'function' field for spaceships, since their names and classifications are sometimes less than descriptive. Those fields are there in the current version, so I just wanted to know if they'd follow with the new looks as well. Thanks. :) VT-16 22:17, 7 February 2006 (UTC)
        • Well, on the spacecraft page, it already has a field for class; which is pretty much synonymous with function. For example, on the N-1 starfighter page, under class it lists patrol, interceptor, and escort; which essentially covers both function and class. I believe most of the fields that were present on the old pl/plf infoboxes were carried over, with some new ones added as well. RMF 22:25, 7 February 2006 (UTC)


I just started a unified discussion here, so we can all work together in one place. Please join in! —Darth Culator (talk) 13:58, 8 February 2006 (UTC)

  • Be sure to use {{Ship}} rather than {{Infobox/DCTemp}}, since my experimental template has reached the end of its usefulness. —Darth Culator (talk) 14:25, 13 February 2006 (UTC)
    • Ok, when I tried it a few days ago, I messed up. VT-16 14:31, 13 February 2006 (UTC)
      • I've messed up several times myself. This is almost entirely new to me. I don't think any version of the template is fully ready to be deployed yet, though. I can't figure out why the bullets look different in certain boxes, for example. I don't know if it's a CSS problem, or if it's my browser, or what. —Darth Culator (talk) 14:52, 13 February 2006 (UTC)
        • Haha, yeah I noticed those bullets that didn't look the same. Other than that, I think I've gotten hang of it now. Just have t be careful about accidently leaving things out and not following the template religiously. >P VT-16 14:54, 13 February 2006 (UTC)

Regarding the vehicle infobox fields: sure, that sounds fine. RMF 01:53, 23 February 2006 (UTC)

Eras.

I have a question. Could you tell me the eras in order from earliest to lastest (just so I know where to put Imperial Era, Rebellion Era, etc.)? Admiral J. Nebulax (talk) 15:45, 12 March 2006 (UTC)

  • I think "Imperial Era" is being looked at at the moment. It will probably be deemed unecessary, since the period it covers, is already covered by "Rise of the Empire Era". Basically, it's Rise of the Empire Era (1000-0 BBY), Rebellion Era (0-5 ABY), New Republic Era (5-25 ABY), New Jedi Order Era (25-35 ABY) VT-16 19:38, 12 March 2006 (UTC)
    • So is "Galactic Civil War" not considered an era? Admiral J. Nebulax (talk) 20:02, 12 March 2006 (UTC)
      • I'm abit iffy on conflicts and how they match up with eras. The Clone Wars are essentially part of the "Rise of the Empire Era", but should be noted on its own as well... VT-16 20:17, 12 March 2006 (UTC)
        • Perhaps something like:
  • Rise of the Empire Era
  • Rebellion/Imperial Era
  • New Republic era
  • New Jedi Order Era
  • Legacy Era

How's that? Admiral J. Nebulax (talk) 20:26, 12 March 2006 (UTC)

  • The problem is the Galactic Civil War lasted long into the New Republic Era as well. It started in the last years of the Rise of the Empire Era, went into the Rebellion Era and officially ended towards the final years of the New Republic Era. VT-16 20:37, 12 March 2006 (UTC)
    • Good point. We might as well just removed wars from it, then. Admiral J. Nebulax (talk) 21:50, 12 March 2006 (UTC)
      • Or specify them either under an era or over several, where applicable. VT-16 21:56, 12 March 2006 (UTC)

Links

Can I ask why you pursue 'fixing' the links of "AT-AT" to "All Terrain Armored Transport|AT-AT"?? I can't find a reason to do so since AT-AT is already a redirect to All Terrain Armored Transport. I think this fixing is just needless. MoffRebus 13:19, 22 March 2006 (UTC)

  • I thought that would cut down on unnecessary redirects all over the place. Nothing more. VT-16 14:15, 22 March 2006 (UTC)

Exploiter

Source for the escort carrier Exploiter? Lt. 1993 23:49, 12 May 2006 (UTC)

  • I just found that name in the article already and italized it. You have to ask the one that put it there, because I have no clue. :) VT-16 08:44, 13 May 2006 (UTC)
    • Oh, I thought you put it there. User:Bly1993/sig
      • Nope, it was there when I worked on it. VT-16 14:09, 13 May 2006 (UTC)

RE: Big clear pictures

They're from ScreenThemes. It was in an ad on StarWars.com and I decided to try it (and I made the article for it to explain where the pics came from). Most pics are sharp at 1600x1200, a few newer ones can be viewed up to 2048x1536 with no signs of scaling, and a few older ones don't benefit from the highest resolution and can be downsized to 1280x960 or 1024x768. It had the clearest shot of the ROTJ BG Ship I had ever seen, along with a few other obscure tidbits. -- Darth Culator 23:39, 16 May 2006 (UTC)



Imperial vs Imperator

Hi, actually the name Imperator comes from fanon blueprints made in 1978, thw author Geoffrey Mandel told me via email that Imperator was never official nor were his blueprints. He specificly said " the blueprints were a fan effort." As with alot of SW ships they don't follow real life first ship name class rules, sure the Executor is the named but thats the only case thus far. my name is AmericanMuscle on here. (141.152.25.193 14:07, 14 June 2006 (UTC))

  • I thought the "Imperator" term had been officialized by now, even if it used to be a fan invention (just as Cygnus Spaceworks was). —Silly Dan (talk) 14:16, 14 June 2006 (UTC)
    • He doesn't seem to realize that even if the origin was with a fan, when it is used in official works, it becomes official. I've debated this guy (or others like him) on Wikipedia, and they kept deleting official sources that referenced the name (the Revenge of the Sith: Incredible Cross Sections, the Venator article on the Official Databank, and the novel Dark Lord: The Rise of Darth Vader).
According to the article on Star Destroyers there, the Mandel prints came with Lucasfilm markings. If what you say is true and Mandel responded to that, does that mean he falsified the markings? In that case, it's his problem if he deceived any buyers. I guess it's the same thing with the D7 Klingon battlecruiser in Star Trek, which apparently is also something he first came up with, that later got canonized.
And there's many classes that are named after the first ship made or commissioned in-universe, but not always. VT-16 14:38, 14 June 2006 (UTC)
I see. You'll probably want to add a note about the unofficial origins and recent officialization (canonization?) of the Imperator- name to the "Behind the scenes" section, then. —Silly Dan (talk) 22:14, 14 June 2006 (UTC)
  • Yeah, I think that'd be for the best. Still, it's pretty funny, we have one unsubstantiated claim on Wikipedia (about the LFL markings) and another in this thread (about talking with Mandel himself), both of which don't have anything to show for it. I guess we'll just take this on good faith. ;) VT-16 22:25, 14 June 2006 (UTC)

ImpStar Debate

  • VT-16, a week ago, you said you would ask Leland Chee about the armament on the Imperial-class Star Destroyer- in a nice, unobtrusive, non-denominational sort of way. Well, the discussion on the talk page moved on to far more irrelevant topics, so I was wondering if you A) had asked him and B) if so, what he said? Just curious. Atarumaster88 01:06, 10 August 2006 (UTC)
    • I did ask, but the question got buried in a mound of "twilek/human sex" and someone asking if SW books treat it as a real universe or something. I wanted to wait a while before trying again, so either today or tomorrow I'll ask again. VT-16 10:05, 10 August 2006 (UTC)
      • How hideous. Thank you for trying. Keep up the good work. Atarumaster88 01:57, 14 August 2006 (UTC)
  • Anything? Atarumaster88 14:48, 21 August 2006 (UTC)
    • I'll try asking today. Haven't done it yet. :p VT-16 14:51, 21 August 2006 (UTC)
      • OK. Do you know if there is anything special that has to be done for images used only on user pages? Atarumaster88 14:52, 21 August 2006 (UTC)
        • Not that I know of. Just make sure you note that it's to be used only as a userpic and nothing else. VT-16 14:55, 21 August 2006 (UTC)
  • I guess we are doomed to just not know what the truth is about the ISD's weapons. Atarumaster88 20px (Audience Chamber) 16:01, 7 September 2006 (UTC)
    • Asked again, and no-one's responded. Unless the alternate armament can be indentified on a picture of the vessel, I suggest going with the only one we have, from the ICS. :/ VT-16 16:08, 7 September 2006 (UTC)

Template user sub-pages?

I don't think this is possible, but is there a way to make a sub-page of my user page that's a template? And I also thought I read something about users with a sub-page called "sig", probably used for signatures. Is that true, and why/how are those used? I just put my custom signature in the nickname field. — Aiddat (Holonet) (Contribs Log) 20px 14:42, 21 August 2006 (UTC)

  • I'm not that knowledgable about those kinds of things, but I think if you go to the templates category (under the main wookiepedia category) you might figure out how to make your own template. :) VT-16 14:45, 21 August 2006 (UTC)
  • Okay. Thanks. — Aiddat (Holonet) (Contribs Log) 20px 14:53, 21 August 2006 (UTC)

Proposed new policy change

MC80a battleship

VT-16, I was wondering about your source for the info in the MC80a battleship article. I noted that you listed a scrapbook as the source. Could you please provide me with the exact quote that lists [i]Home One[/i] as being a MC80a battleship that is 3800 meters long? I am curious about the validity of the source since LFL maintains that the whole size/classificiation of Home One has never been decided. I am not trying to be rude, but I am always skeptical of articles that claim these things about Home One. Could you please provide me with the quotes that backed your creating the article? Thanks! AdmiralNick22 13:11, 22 September 2006 (UTC)

  • I didn't put that there, someone changed the length after I made the article. Basically, the Home One was mentioned as a MC80a Star Cruiser in several games, I think, and as a battleship in the Rebel Alliance Scrapbook. I took the MC80a designation and the battleship designation and made the name to separate it from all the other MC80-series Star Cruisers, since I also found the old original sources where it was bigger than the others. That's more systematic than saying Home One-type, which is not in any official source. VT-16 13:24, 22 September 2006 (UTC)
    • There is a problem however with this. First off, it is still a fan guess, not a official source. As it is we have conflicting sourcs on whether Home One is a MC80 or MC80a. Also, the term battleship is used loosly to describe Mon Cal cruisers in numerous sources- just like for ISD's. Hell, Kevin J. Anderson refered to Mon Cal cruisers as cruiser, battle cruisers, and battleships- all describing the MC90 Galactic Voyager. As for games that refer to Home One as a MC80a, the only I am aware of is X-Wing Alliance- which has many screw ups in warships size, classification, etc.

Now, the source you refer to as stating Home One is bigger is from the novelization fo ROTJ, right? The whole "largest of the Rebel Star Cruisers" line. Problem is when the novelization was written, there was no WEG sourcebooks that pegged them as Mon Cal cruisers. In fact, early sources from before all the RPG info use the term Star Cruiser to describe the Medical Frigate. The term used is "Rebel Medical Frigate Star Cruiser".

I just feel that the article is not supported by enough sources to warrant its creation. I am not trying to insult your work or anything like that, but I am always wary of these kind of articles with bits of supposition on the Wookiee. Do you understand where I am coming from? Personally, I think we need to delete it. Obviously since you created it I think it was fair that we dicuss this a bit before taking the next step. What is your opinion? AdmiralNick22 14:15, 22 September 2006 (UTC)

  • There is no problem. Novelizations, scripts and actual movie making is and always has had a higher status than third party writing. That is the way LFL canon laws work. And I've never heard the Nebulon-Bs described that way, only as "battlecruisers", a term used in early comics for just about everything the Rebels had, warship-wise. And the Home One is still described as the largest. There is no arguing that, as I've laid out above. The LFL canon laws can not be superceded that way. There's even been several post-WEG sources picturing the Home One battleships as bigger than 1,200 meters (an illustration from Starships of the Galaxy and the revised look for the Home One in Empire at War's expansion pack). I've made sure to bring the evidence to the actual article before writing it, to ensure accuracy. VT-16 15:19, 22 September 2006 (UTC)
  • Fine. Going by this thought pattern, is there a source in the movie, novelization, or script that says "Home One is a MC80a battleship". Because, if there isn't, the classification is just supposition. Now, you site the scrap book as the source for Home One being a MC80a battleship. Can you show me the quote for this? As for the illustration in SOTG, where does it say it is Home One? I have that RPG book. All I see it a picture of a unclassifed rear portion of a Mon Cal designed warship? What is your source for it being Home One? Furthermore, who is to say that the pic is not of a Viscount or Mediator?

Again, I bring up why we can't let the novelization quote about "largest of the Rebel Star Cruisers" mean it is bigger than all other Mon Cal cruisers. Rebel Star Cruiser is not specfically stated in the novelization to refer specifically to Mon Cal cruisers. In fact, the novelization only mentions one type of ship specifically being Calamarian- tankers. So, if I understand correctly, you are basing this article on the fact Home One looks larger in the movies? Even though Leeland Chee of LFL said that there has been no ruling yet on Home One's size? AdmiralNick22 00:02, 23 September 2006 (UTC)

Recusant-class light destroyer

VT-16, why is this added to the list of Mon Cal cruisers? It may of been based off stolen Mon Cal designs, but we have no idea how much it was changed. Furthermore, it was not even built at the Mon Cal shipyards. Shouldn't we remove it from the list of Mon Cal warships? AdmiralNick22 13:53, 30 September 2006 (UTC)

  • But it was their design, and the ships started coming out of the CIS factories a short time afterwards. :) VT-16 14:16, 30 September 2006 (UTC)
    • But it wasn't built by them. Whereas all other ships on the Mon Cal warships list at the bottom of the page were. I don't debate it being based on Mon Cal designs. But, it doesn't belong on that list. I feel like it was put there so that the list could appear complete. AdmiralNick22 14:18, 30 September 2006 (UTC)
      • True, but design-wise, that's their doing. The profile on the official site mentioned it, the Holonet article referenced it, and it showed up in a Rebel fleet in SW:Rebellion issue 4, ironically alongside two MC80 cruisers. It just seemed like a good idea to include on the list, like the Imperial prison ships made or inspired by Mandalorian designs on the Mandalorian list. VT-16 14:22, 30 September 2006 (UTC)
        • I did like that the artist included that in Rebellion #4. Between that and the captured Acclamator-class, it is a nice tie in to the Rebel fleet being a mix of older, second hand designs and a few first class ones like MC80's and Neb-B's. AdmiralNick22 15:26, 30 September 2006 (UTC)
          • Yep, they used everything the could get their hands on. Recusants, Acclamators and the Class-II frigate Rand Ecliptic (which I think can be seen in the far left on that same page, at least the ship is too elongated to be an Acclamator). I also noticed several scenes in ROTJ where some unseen Rebel vessels were shooting rather big bolts at the Imperial fleet. Some of them go behind ISDs and would be at least one km in length. Wonder if anyone will retroactively connect those with the big Bulwark-class battlecruisers the Rebels had at the time? :) VT-16 15:33, 30 September 2006 (UTC)

Just out of curiosity, how are you doing that? Oh, and thanks for doing that to all those Marvel images. Cull Tremayne 17:11, 14 November 2006 (UTC)

  • I use a program called "Irfanview" in conjunction with MS Paint. Irfanview can change the sizes and dimensions of a picture, but in doing so, makes them huge, so I have to save them in the same format in Paint afterwards to shrink them down. :) VT-16 19:32, 14 November 2006 (UTC)

Category:Hutt Cartel spaceships

Yeah, I don't mind "spacecraft" as a term, but "spaceships" sounds a bit too Buck Rogers for our GFFA, IMHO. --SparqMan 19:29, 21 December 2006 (UTC)

  • Hah, never thought of it that way. :D
Btw. why were most of the Zann Consortium ships taken out of that category? The Kedalbe-class and Crusader-class served it just as much as the other vehicles. VT-16 19:30, 21 December 2006 (UTC)

We've been pretty good about keeping ship classes and specific ships separate for the big categories (Rebels, Imps, NR), but the smaller ones often get lumped together. I'd like for us to note those ship classes by affiliation, but not at the cost of confusing other categories. I put some of my thoughts here: Forum:Starship classes under faction categories. Feel free to revert if you think I was too hasty.--SparqMan 20:08, 21 December 2006 (UTC)

  • I'll check out the discussion. It's nice to see more coherence in the starship/starship class categories. They've always confused me because classes and individual ships get mixed all the time. :S VT-16 10:48, 22 December 2006 (UTC)

I warned you once before about using vulgar invective against other users.

However, if I don't see it toned down to polite disagreement the next time I check, and it's clear that you've been on and had the chance to fix it, the floggings will resume as scheduled. jSarek 14:18, 4 February 2007 (UTC)

Loronar Spaceship Classes

Hey, after back-tracking a bit (and then finding the easy way), I discovered you made the Loronar spaceship classes template. I recently saw the X-Q1 patrol craft on the wanted page and subesequently made it, thinking that as it was in a template then it had to exist. I still believe it does, but it'd be of immeasurable help if you could tell me where the source for this name is, if only for me to source it (I googled it and didn't find anything definitive). I did make it with the intention of making an article, though.

Hope to hear back from you soon. - Jinko 02:17, 11 April 2007 (UTC)
  • If it can't be found anywhere and the person writing the name can't provide a source, then it shouldn't be here. VT-16 09:15, 11 April 2007 (UTC)

I remember some battles I've had getting people to understand that even the silliest in-universe reference should be included, even if the readers/viewers understand it to be an obvious Earth-term. Stuff like "Portugese man-o-war" and "England". (Though I'm not sure about the second, I can't remember if they ever managed to provide photographic proof of the name, which was said to be written on the side of the IT-0 droid's needle).

Galactic-class

Hey, mate, I agree with you. I think that nonsense about it "carrying battle to the enemy", or whatever it exactly says, should be cut, and I would have done it on my own if not because I know certain users will revert the deletion and leave that rubbish there. The fact is, this nonsense about "psychological" and "taking the battle of the enemy" is fanon speculation. I only added the battlecruiser and fleet carrier comparisons because I thought it was relevant. I got the impression you more or less agreed with what I was saying there, but then, I may have misunderstood what you said. What are your thoughts?--SOCLcomm 01:12, 27 July 2007 (UTC)

  • I suspect it was put there by McEwok, a person who thinks doing "post-modern" literary analysis makes up for not knowing military terminology. It's nonsense and complete rubbish and even though it's in the Behind the Scenes section, I think it's a waste of webspace. Sadly, some admins would probably disagree, so I'm not sure how to handle it. VT-16 06:33, 27 July 2007 (UTC)
    • I'm going to go ahead and delete it. It's simply utter rubbish. Will you lend me some back up if the matter gets, to put it nicely, stupid.--SOCLcomm 16:27, 27 July 2007 (UTC)
      • If his argument is that "battle carrier" means "something that carries battle" and uses another unfounded example ("Star Destroyer" = "something that destroys stars") as explanation, then this can pretty much be deleted. If something goes in bts sections, it needs to actually have some sort of backing, either in canon or the real world. This has neither. VT-16 16:39, 27 July 2007 (UTC)

Anakin's Transport

Do you think Anakin's Transport shouldn't be call that because you don't know if there's more than 1 or if it's just for Anakin. I think it should just be called "B-Wing Starfighter (Clone Wars)". Olsonman 28:00, 4 September 2007 (UTC)

  • Its name will undoubtably be given, but until then, this is just a placeholder and is noted as such. VT-16 19:57, 5 September 2007 (UTC)

Calamari Cruisers

Actually, X-Wing Alliance calls the Liberty a Calamari Cruiser Type 2, and the Defiance just plain old Calimari Cruiser. Curiously enough, the tech room in the game calls the Defiance a MC80a, which strikes me as odd, and it also calls the Liberty type a Winged Calimari Cruiser. So...if you can pull anything coherent out of that, best of luck. Thefourdotelipsis 04:13, 21 September 2007 (UTC)

  • That sounds reasonable. Shall you, or shall I? Thefourdotelipsis 12:14, 21 September 2007 (UTC)
    • Actually, I think it might be more prudent to leave MC80 Star Cruiser as a disambiguation page, since so many of them have that in their title. For the Defiance type, I think that the disambiguation qualified thing in the parentheses is enough. And we can just leave the Liberty one as is. I think. Thefourdotelipsis 12:33, 21 September 2007 (UTC)

MC80 names

I'm not sure where to place them actually, although I know those terms are canon. I only briefly glanced at book before I wrapped it up as a present for my bro, but we will open presents soon, so I can recheck then. The actualy paragraph I looked at just said something along the lines, "there are two basic types, the Liberty-type and Home One-type", which doesn't clarify whether those terms go before, after, or in the middle of the name. I will be sure to do more updates based on the book after the unwrapping.JustinGann 20:38, 18 December 2007 (UTC)

  • Unwrapped and read. However, I can't find anything to indicate where to put these phrases in the name. However, I think I made a mistake. Apparently "Liberty type" and "Home One type" do not have hyphens.JustinGann 00:31, 24 December 2007 (UTC)
    • I asked Moridin himself, since he made the book, and he said that the "type" can go either before or after the name. Of course, I put it after, so I chose the one place that it does NOT go! Alas!

So: a) Liberty-type MC80 Star Cruiser or b) MC80 Liberty-type Star Cruiser either way is valid. Also, he said the "type" subclassification names are mostly used by "outsiders" and are not names given by the Mon Cal themselves (thus, they are somewhat informal terms), who make no "subclass" distinctions, since each ship is individual; the "subclass" "types" are just vague labels for similar ships given by non-Mon Cals. Thus, he says, the "Pearly Wingless" might or might NOT be considered a "Liberty-type."JustinGann 09:15, 24 December 2007 (UTC)

Image revert

I just wanted to explain my reverting File:BattleOfSerroco dfna.jpg. I thought the cropped image was more visually appealing than blanked-out red box at the bottom of the image you uploaded. Hope you're OK with that. - JMAS Hey, it's me! 20:10, 16 April 2008 (UTC)

Mind if I ask what the problem was with my upload of File:Emperorrecon.jpg? The only difference I see between mine as yours, is that mine was centered and you could see the rain. Your upload I'm assuming you applied a blur effect to try and eliminate the rain, but now the image looks blurry. I think it's better to have the rain than the blurriness. - JMAS Hey, it's me! 17:36, 29 April 2008 (UTC)

    • So far, nothing I've tried has worked. So for the time being, I'm going to have to say that I'm unable to get that shot for you. But I'll keep trying in the meantime. On the above image, I'm going to go ahead and revert. It's not pixelated. It's a HD capture from the film. And I think the centered, sharper image is better for the infobox. - JMAS Hey, it's me! 18:12, 29 April 2008 (UTC)

Hello

Hello, VT-16, I'm Grand Moff Tranner. You seem to know a lot about Super Star Destroyers, so I thought I would ask you a question. I stumbled upon the Super Star Destroyer (8km) article, and I saw that both that "class" and the Super-class share the same length. I realize that the Super-class name was given to the Executor-class for budgetary reasons, but I'm becoming more and more convinced that a separate Super-class did in fact exist, which would lend its name to group of variously-sized Star Destroyers known as Super Star Destroyers. I was reading Invincible earlier today, and on page 212 is describes the Megador as being a Super-class Star Destroyer. I'm also aware that this class has appeared elsewhere in reference to actual ships. My question to you is this: Would it be possible to merge the "Super Star Destroyer (8km)" article into the Super-class article and reword it to say that although the class was originally designed to hide the truth behind the Executor, it eventually became its own class? Grand Moff Tranner 20px (Comlink) 00:25, 17 May 2008 (UTC)

  • Well, the thing is, the Super-class designation is the same as the Super Star Destroyer, it's a general designation for many different warship classes. Even the recent Starships Of The Galaxy edition describes the Executor both as a Super Star Destroyer, Super-class Star Destroyer and designates it Executor-class Star Dreadnought, so it's not a certain class in itself. VT-16 09:17, 17 May 2008 (UTC)
    • I wouldn't be too sure of that. While the Super-class may have been invented to conceal the true nature of the Executor-class, it appears that some Super-class vessels were indeed constructed - hence the "Super Star Destroyer (8km)" article and ships such as the Megador. Saying that the Super-class is another name for Super Star Destroyer is obviously wrong. The Super-class is a distinctive Super Star Destroyer class. Additionally, saying that the Super-class is made up is wrong, as even the Imperial Remnant uses ships of this class, not the Executor-class. Up until recently, I had the same beliefs that you do, but I think that the Super-class has been used too much now to be considered nonexistent any longer. If an 8km long Super Star Destroyer is canon, it's obviously the Super-class. Saying that it isn't is fanon. Grand Moff Tranner 20px (Comlink) 12:37, 17 May 2008 (UTC)
      • I made that first article, as I've done whenever a new distinct SSD design is mentioned anywhere. By canon sources, both Super-class and SSD are colloquial terms used by various SW militaries, other designations and class-names are used instead. The latest source to confirm the colloquial use is Starship Battles Preview 1 on Wizards of the Coast's homepage. The article should still be there. An 8km SSD can be called whatever they feel like, but it's official name is not Super-class Star Destroyer, since only bigger shiptypes get called that, as per Inside the Worlds of the Star Wars Trilogy. The Imperial Star Cruisers, Star Battlecruisers and Star Dreadnoughts are the canonical Super Star Destroyers, Star Destroyers are not. Whatever this 8km long ship is, it's still not designated a Star Destroyer as that is an official designation for smaller warships than SSDs. VT-16 13:03, 17 May 2008 (UTC)
        • I have no idea why you're so opposed to this, but the Super-class is canonical. Having a separate article for an 8km long Super Star Destroyer is unneeded when the canonical 8km long Super Star Destroyer is the Super-class. This is supported by canon. However, I have asked Mr. Chee about this on the StarWars.com message boards; please do not undo my edits until he has given me a reply. Grand Moff Tranner 20px (Comlink) 20:27, 17 May 2008 (UTC)
          • Like I've said over and over again, according to canon the Super-class exists only as a military colloquialism, not an actual Star Destroyer class. Whatever the 8km Super Star Destroyers are, they are not designated Super-class Star Destroyers. VT-16 22:57, 17 May 2008 (UTC)

SSD dispute

A forum on SSD's involving you has been started. A response would be appreciated. -- SFH 00:40, 18 May 2008 (UTC)

  • With all due respect, SFH, I've had plenty of responses. Frankly, I don't want to read another; I just want an admin to look over the issue. Grand Moff Tranner 20px (Comlink) 00:43, 18 May 2008 (UTC)
    • I know, but he has a right to state his reasons as well. -- SFH 00:45, 18 May 2008 (UTC)

About this whole issue

First off, I'd like to apologize. Second, I just wanted to ask your permission for something. I would like to put Super-class Star Destroyer as the class of the Megador again. While it may or may not be its own class, that is what the Megador is called in Invincible. I won't bother with redoing any of my other edits to similar pages. But to be quite honest, I feel that if you refuse this, then this site is no longer dedicated to having the correct information in regards to Star Wars. Besides, if Leland Chee replies saying that the Super-class isn't its own class, it's not like we can't remove it. And if that's what he says, believe me, I'd be the first to remove it. Grand Moff Tranner 20px (Comlink) 13:10, 18 May 2008 (UTC)

  • Yeah, sorry for blowing off some steam over this, I'm just used to that kind of stuff with another (now hopefully in-active) user on this site. I have no disagreement about putting the word Super-class Star Destroyer on any article, but it has to link to the Super Star Destroyer article, as that is the canonical position as of now. The Super-class article is a distinct article about an in-universe fake class, whose main legacy is the name being used colloquially later on. Maybe with some rewording, it can be linked to as well. I'll try doing that. VT-16 13:27, 18 May 2008 (UTC)
    • Linking to the "Legacy" section of the Super-class article seems good to me. Thanks, and I hope we can put this whole issue behind us. I think we have a lot in common. ;) Grand Moff Tranner 20px (Comlink) 16:34, 18 May 2008 (UTC)
      • Yes, I'm sorry for the way I've acted, it was late and I wasn't interested in getting into yet another years-long debate that keeps popping up from time to time on this issue. You seem like a nice guy on the other talk pages and issues, so I think it'll go fine. You were relatively new so I wasn't sure what kind of person you were. :) VT-16 17:22, 18 May 2008 (UTC)

Warning

I'm not going to dress this up with polite wording. You're a well-established and prolific user, and though I have little or nothing to do with you most of the time, I recognize your station on the wiki. Your actions on the community side of editing, however, leave something to be desired. What on Earth is this? Don't do that anymore. Seriously, just cool it, before someone takes exception and blocks you. Graestan(Talk) 23:47, 18 May 2008 (UTC)

  • I've seen other posters (admins?) do the same in the discussions here. Why are you bringing up an issue that was resolved already? That thing happened after a long series of discussions and misunderstandings. VT-16 06:48, 19 May 2008 (UTC)

Telling people to grow up in edit summaries is exactly the sort of thing I was talking about. This is your final warning. Stop the abusive language, or face a block. Graestan(Talk) 13:53, 26 May 2008 (UTC)

  • I think his little vandalism spree that happened when we stripped him of adminship marked the end of his presence here, so don't expect a response. jSarek 09:04, 4 June 2008 (UTC)

Emperor's Shadow

  • I think there's some misinterpretation the part of the Droga article. Per The Kaal Connection and The Emperor's Pawns, Droga is already aboard the Shadow, approaching Kaal after already having left hyperspace, when he experiences the death of Palpatine. jSarek 00:45, 12 June 2008 (UTC)

Cropping images

The point of using the source files like [2] is to reduce the presence of artifacts in the posted image. Editing them with a program like MS Paint or Irfanview is a "lossy" method, which causes artifacts to multiply. If the only thing you're doing is cropping the image, the best program to use is JPEGCrop, which crops by deleting JPEG data blocks rather than resaving and recompressing the whole image. Since it's possible to do this in the native JPEG format, it's also wasteful to go from a lossy to a lossless format like resaving as PNG. -- Darth Culator (Talk) 13:25, 20 June 2008 (UTC)

Talk:Jax Pavan (disambiguation)

Talk pages are for discussing the article, and nothing else. If you wish to continue your discussion with Goodwood, take it to email or somewhere else, but please keep it off talk pages. Thanks. -- AdmirableAckbar (Talk) 21:32, 28 June 2008 (UTC)

  • I was. VT-16 21:55, 28 June 2008 (UTC)
    • I'm not sure what exactly you're saying, but comments like "Ahh, another blow against minimalism. So, is anything said about the rarity of the name? Is it common or uncommon?" and "You're equating the planetary population for two widely different eras. Traitor takes place after several wars and several cataclysmic battles on the world that often left it in ruins" have absolutely nothing to do with the article. The subject, yes, but not the article. -- AdmirableAckbar (Talk) 23:13, 28 June 2008 (UTC)
  • Isn't the subject the article? Everyone else was discussing it and I wanted to know what more the book said about it. VT-16 10:29, 29 June 2008 (UTC)
    • The subject is not the article. Talk pages are for discussing the article -- e.g. "what's the source for the info in the article" or "I'd like to change the infobox image" -- and not for discussing the subject -- e.g. "Ahh, another blow against minimalism. So, is anything said about the rarity of the name? Is it common or uncommon?" I've reverted your latest edits to Talk:Jax Pavan (disambiguation) and Talk:Grand Army of the Republic. If you want to get into debates, go to TFN or discuss it with email, like I asked you to do above. -- AdmirableAckbar (Talk) 13:02, 29 June 2008 (UTC)
    • Jedi Twilight has a fair amount of stuff relevant to Coruscant's population. Not all of it to your liking I'm afraid; one trillion was the official population, but it didn't count underdwellers. The "actual" population was maybe three trillion. That didn't include commuters from moons and skyhooks. Building heights varied in parts of the city, and one large area was deserted. -LtNOWIS 18:34, 29 June 2008 (UTC)
      • Well, even that estimate was conjectural in-universe. They appearantly have alot of temporary residents, commuters and not to mention all the crews from the constant flow of traffic to and from the world. VT-16 20:47, 29 June 2008 (UTC)

Mandalorian Ships

Based on the limited area of content of your recent edits I guess that you don't have an early copy of the Guide, but instead a two-page preview with this new ship found somewhere. Am i right and if I am, could you give me a link, please? I can't see on Wizards' website. Mauser 07:43, 13 August 2008 (UTC)

  • Thanks for the link still. Might be worth to check the thread and see if something interesting pops up. BTW, you may want to add them to the Guide article as well. Mauser 07:53, 13 August 2008 (UTC)

Imperial-class Super Star Destroyer

I have no problem with an "Imperial-class Super Star Destroyer" article, then, but there needs to be proof that it's the same as the Allegiance's class if you want to move that one.

This is what I said last time, but you just moved the Allegiance-type article back to the "Imperial-class Super Star Destroyer" title. I'm moving it back; if you want an ISSD article, make a new one. - Lord Hydronium 08:13, 19 August 2008 (UTC)

  • Sorry, it was a few months ago. I only just noticed it. But if you want an ISSD article, there should be two articles. - Lord Hydronium 08:49, 19 August 2008 (UTC)
    • Then why keep removing the Allegiance class article? And why redirect the Allegiance-type article to Imperial-class Super Star Destroyer? Make a new article and stop trying to turn the Allegiance-type one into it. - Lord Hydronium 08:55, 19 August 2008 (UTC)
      • You can make the Imperial-class article yourself. All the text is still there in the page history. If you want to delete the Allegiance-type article, make a VFD, don't move the article to an entirely different subject. - Lord Hydronium 09:02, 19 August 2008 (UTC)
        • Don't move anything. You don't need to move anything. Just copy the content you wanted in the Imperial-class article to that one, and don't redirect the Allegiance-type article to it. - Lord Hydronium 09:09, 19 August 2008 (UTC)
          • Glad we got that settled, but one more thing: it's not a candidate for speedy deletion, so it'll need to be run through the deletion process. The instructions should be on that page. - Lord Hydronium 10:19, 19 August 2008 (UTC)
          • Also, I'm glad this was just a misunderstanding and we cleared it up; I thought you were just continuing to claim them as the same, so sorry if I got a little harsh about it. - Lord Hydronium 10:22, 19 August 2008 (UTC)

TFU Databank trivia

Hiya, I went through the game once now and sadly there is no entry on the early Star Destroyer type that you see in the game :( At least, not on the PS2 copy. Not encountered several unit types mentioned actually like the Purge trooper or the Incinerator trooper which I presume are perhaps on the other consoles. Darth Batrus 11:22, 21 September 2008 (UTC)

I know its been a while and I don't want to resurrect an old topic but thought I should mention this to you since you brought it up when I got the game. I looked at the concept art that I collected on the PS2 version of TFU and noticed an art piece of the Star Destroyer design that you see attacking the TIE Fighter Construction Facility. No description or words identifying it but it looks like a mixture between a Gladiator-class Star Destroyer and a Venator-class Star Destroyer. It might be the former of the two rather then a new class, not sure but I do notice the distinctive shape at the front of the vessel which is similar to the Gladiators.Darth Batrus 12:39, 28 November 2008 (UTC)
Tried to take a picture but for some reason, my camera keeps blackening parts of the TV screen. I took a chance to compare the Gladiator-class and the one from TFU. The early Star Destroyer has the bridge like a Victory/Imperial-class, the engines resemble that of a Venator-class but the front looks kind of like the Gladiator-class. At first, I thought it might have been a Gladiator but it looks too different from the image of the Gladiator thats on Wookieepedia at the moment. Will keep trying and letting you know about the concept art. Darth Batrus 23:04, 28 November 2008 (UTC)

Hapes Nova-Class picture update

Howdy, I've uploaded a clearer picture of the Hapes Nova-class ship for potential insertion into the article. The page with the newer image is here [3] The original scan was a little chunky, so I replicated the look of the image seen in the Starships of the Galaxy (2007) book as best as I could from the original source (it was edited and shortened for the RPG). The work is still copyrighted, but the source is direct and since I reserve the rights to use it on my own webpage, I consider it fair use to offer a clearer image to the 'pedia. I've kept it at about 600 pixels high and no more, I don't want it printable since it's a little cleaner. Thanks! Bantha68 11:03, 24 September 2008 (UTC)

Executor images

Hey, VT. Do you have the Shadows of the Empire (comics)? I was hoping you might be able to scan a couple images for the Executor project I'm working on. Toprawa and Ralltiir 17:03, 31 October 2008 (UTC)

  • Is that a yes? :P Toprawa and Ralltiir 01:00, 1 November 2008 (UTC)
    • Ok, I only have the TPB, so I won't be able to direct you by individual issue, so I'll try to explain what I'm talking about. Ideally, I'd like to get three images out of here, but the last one can be found in a larger format without the text box in Star Wars: The Ultimate Visual Guide, so don't worry about that one. They are:
      • 1) Right near the beginning, probably in the first issue, right before Vader talks with the Emperor for the first time, it shows an image of the Executor and Death Squadron floating in space.
      • 2) The second one is about 3/4 of the way through the story. Jix is snooping through Jabba's palace and he makes a private call to Vader, right after killing a Triceratops-looking dude. It shows the Executor traveling through space, possibly hyperspace, right before Vader's and Jix's exchange.
      • 3) The third one is during the Battle of Falleen's Fist at the end. The Executor can be seen opening up on Xizor's skyhook,; there are several green laser blasts flying from the Executor. Again, there's a better version in the UVG. If you can scan it from there, that would be cool too, but otherwise not important. Thanks. :) Toprawa and Ralltiir 01:09, 1 November 2008 (UTC)
  • It seems I need some sort of DAV code to download. Any ideas? Toprawa and Ralltiir 16:05, 1 November 2008 (UTC)

My understanding of the WEG/WOTC system is that it is just to determine combat scale. IE, anything below a certain length is "Starfighter" size, then above that "Transport" size, then "Capital" size, then "Station size.

This does not actually mean a space tug IS a starfighter. a DoomTreader is "transport" sized by RPG terms, but is still a starfighter; an Action VI may be "capital" sized, but is still a transport; an Executor may be "station" sized, but is still a capital ship. The Essential Guide to Vehicles and Vessels is a better guide to in-universe classification, and reveals that function is more important than size in this regard.

A ship MUST have weaponry to really be a capital ship, and be intended for combat. Fighter-carriers and transports are not capital ships, no matter how large. Of course, in SW many capital ships DO double as carriers;)

classification

I would think so. IIRC, didn't WEG have a "landspeeder" scale--that didn't make everything that was landspeeder scale a landspeeder;)

Images from TFU

thumb|left|150px thumb|right|150px I managed to get a picture on a camera on the early Star Destroyer in the game from the Holocron viewer. The shots arent great but you can make out the design. Would these be helpful? I know they arent good shots but its the best I could do :( Darth Batrus 18:01, 8 December 2008 (UTC)

No problem :) Glad to be of help, I uploaded some more art from the camera. I put them in the Imperial Navy commando, MAAT and Jump trooper articles. Darth Batrus 18:23, 8 December 2008 (UTC)

Malevolence-type?

Hey VT-16, I noticed you changed Malevolence-type over to Subjugator-class, which seems to be based on the as-yet unreleased TCW campaign guide as a source. I'm not doubting you, since you're not exactly the kind of person to do something like that without a legitimate source, but I'm curious to know what you're basing it on. Is there some sort of description or preview of the new campaign guide that mentions the Malevolence being Subjugator-class? DolukTalk 18:51, 8 January 2009 (UTC)

  • Cool, thanks for the link. Given that I'm a fleet junkie, it looks like I'm going to have to pick up that campaign guide. I only wish that the new saga books were consistent about giving the lengths of the ships... And yeah, you're right, it would have been nice for them to have called it a battleship, but who knows, maybe in the actual book it'll use both terms. It wouldn't exactly be unprecedented. DolukTalk 20:32, 8 January 2009 (UTC)
    • I don't have the CSWE yet. I was having trouble justifying the cost of it because, hey, I've got Wookieepedia, what do I need a hard-copy of an encyclopedia for? But, I've since managed to convince myself that it's got enough cool stuff in it that I need to get it. I'm planning on picking it up this weekend, so if you still don't have confirmation of what you're looking for by then, I'd be happy to help you out. DolukTalk 21:48, 8 January 2009 (UTC)
      • I just got it home! Interesting choices for what to look up - the first 3 were going to be some of the first ones I looked up anyway... OK, here's what it says about them:
Praetor-class battle cruiser: An outdated warship produced during the Old Republic that saw limited use during the Galactic Civil War.
Procurator-class battle cruiser: A vessel developed by Kuat Drive Yards for the protection of the Kuat sector.
Mandator-class Star Dreadnaught: Developed and manufactured by Kuat Drive Yards specifically for the purpose of defending the Kuat sector from invasion during the last decades of the Old Republic.
For the Maelstrom I won't re-type the entire entry since it's bigger than the entries above, but there's nothing in it that gives any hints about specs, or what class of ship it might be. Likewise, there's no info about the ship's fate beyond what's already here on Wookieepedia.
Hope that helps! DolukTalk 03:21, 11 January 2009 (UTC)
  • Sadly only one of those 3 has an entry, and it's a pretty tiny entry:
star cruiser: A class of capital ship.
Since you're a fellow fleet junkie, if I find any interesting starship-related tidbits in the next few days (ie. before you get your own copy), I'll let you know. DolukTalk 16:28, 11 January 2009 (UTC)
  • Good finds! For the larger ships of the Old Republic, I'm assuming it's probably a tip of the hat to the Mandator-classes of ships, and presumably the Procurators too, but it certainly leaves the door open for other ones too. I always thought that the Merciless seemed more like a stolen Imperial testbed than a typical cap ship. Sadly, being really busy with work and family has kept me from doing more than flipping through the CSWE, although I did search through it to try to find any info on Admiral Giel's flagship, but didn't find anything. DolukTalk 18:02, 17 January 2009 (UTC)
    • The Subjugator-class is among the largest CIS ships? Hmm, interesting! I believe the huge Alsakan warships were first mentioned in the Han Solo and the Corporate Sector sourcebook (where IIRC it says that they were in turn inspired by the warships of Xim the despot). That sourcebook was one of the first EU products I ever got, and to this date it's one of the best. Unlike most WEG books, it gave a good sense of enormous scale. DolukTalk 21:05, 17 January 2009 (UTC)
      • Hmm, I'm at work right now so I can't check, but I think you're right, the Corporate Sector sourcebook did seem to be referring to older ships. It would make sense for there to be large Alsakan ships around 3000 bby, though, since I believe that's around the time of the last of the Alsakan conflicts. The Alsakan conflicts (and especially the ships used in them) are definitely something I'd like to see explored in some futre EU product. Well, that and a whole bunch of other things actually ;-) While I'm wishing, I might as well wish for a full list (including lengths, weapons, etc) of all classes of Imperial Star Dreadnoughts, Star Battlecruisers, etc, as well as full details on Xim the Despot's forces... DolukTalk 21:28, 17 January 2009 (UTC)

Kindlabethia

Hey there. I saw you edited the Kindlabethia to include that quote at the top of the page. I reverted that because of this CT about narrative prose not being quotable in articles, and then placed the information back as it was in BTS. If you feel like it could be better written as history, you can take a stab at it, but I left if that was since the quote is there in BTS to explain it, and it would seem redundant to say directly above that that people there were offered information. Thought I'd let you know so I didn't look like I was trying to edit war. Wildyoda 21:26, 14 January 2009 (UTC)
