Behind the scenesEdit

Ecliptic

Dallan Morvis mentions "the Ecliptic" in Knights of the Old Republic 15: Days of Fear, Part 3 (left), and "the ecliptic" in Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic: Days of Fear, Nights of Anger (right).

"Before it winds up wrong on someone’s website, the word “ecliptic” does not refer to a spaceship by that name, Rand or otherwise. They’re referring to the plane of the ecliptic, which is defined by Serroco’s star and the orbit of the planet around it."
John Jackson Miller[src]

The Ecliptic was first mentioned in Knights of the Old Republic 15: Days of Fear, Part 3. Although author John Jackson Miller intended for the dialogue to refer to "ecliptic" as an astronomical term,[1] the word was italicized in the finished issue, leading some readers to conclude it was a starship. Additionally, all letters in the issue were capitalized, leading to further ambiguity regarding the question of whether or not the word was used as a proper noun. Later, the word "ecliptic" was no longer italicized when the Days of Fear arc was reprinted in Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic: Days of Fear, Nights of Anger, corresponding with Miller's original intention. However, this change was later contradicted by The Complete Star Wars Encyclopedia, where it received an entry, thus canonizing the Ecliptic's existence as a starship.
