Can anyone source the fact that Yoda doesn't know about Dagobah prior to the Clone Wars? I need a book and a page. Cutch 23:30, 16 May 2006 (UTC)

  • You don't need to worry about that now. That information has been ret-conned with the introduction of Yoda's Jedi Master. Jasca Ducato 08:06, 17 May 2006 (UTC)
    • Hm. The only one I can find is actually fairly ambiguous: Episode III Incredible Cross-Sections p30: "After discovering the disappearance of the planet Kamino from Jedi navigational charts at the beginning of the Clone Wars, Yoda discreetly scanned for other gaps. Throughout the galaxy, he detected 37 more "missing" star systems. He found amazing strategic resources in some, while he met fiendish foes in others. With the dark side of the Force ever more persuasive, Yoda chose to keep one lost planet, Dagobah, as his private secret. In so doing, he was able to out-manipulate the phantom menace responsible for deleting the Jedi files." Note it only says Yoda found Dagobah among those planets missing from the archives, and that he kept its location a secret. Doesn't actually say he'd never discovered it beforehand - Kwenn 12:10, 17 May 2006 (UTC)
  • Care to factor in that info from N'Kata Del Gormo also? -- Riffsyphon1024 09:16, 20 May 2006 (UTC)
  • If you go and read Yoda's profile on wookiee, it says he crash landed on "swampy planet covered with a dense fog", I beleive this was Dagobah. But I could be wrong, I'm onyl going on a hunch, but I believe this is when he discovered it. Sato Stars 21:34, 18 June 2006 (UTC)
    • Sorry, but the man in flannel said Yoda never went to Dagobah before his exile, and that's the highest canon there is. --Thetoastman 23:50, 18 June 2006 (UTC)
      • Well, there's been some discrepancy there, as the only sign of him having "not been there" is a vague mention in the script of Dagobah being the "unfamiliar swamp of his exile." But, this issue's been resolved already, so nevermind. Cutch 00:46, 19 June 2006 (UTC)
        • Sorry, but the "man in flannel" said it before N'Kata Del Gormo was created. So this new information takes precidence. This is the new canon. Yoda had been to Dagobah before. Jasca Ducato 08:47, 19 June 2006 (UTC)
          • Umm, no, he didn't. N'Kata comes from Star Wars Galaxy Magazine, the last issue of which was printed in 1997. Lucas's decree came in the production of Episode III, thus sometime after 2002. Besides, that's irrelevant; newer info doesn't always take precedence over older, and G-canon is always weighted more heavily than C-canon information. jSarek 10:15, 19 June 2006 (UTC)
