Troigs for twoEdit

So, no one's used this forum in almost a year, so maybe no one's monitoring it, but I thought I'd ask: I'm working on gathering sources for Troig, and they seem to appear in two issues of Insider:

Anybody out there have access to these? Can you give me the skinny on what they say about Troigs? Thanks! ~SavageBOB sig 06:12, May 10, 2011 (UTC)

It's not easy bein' greenEdit

So, I'm taking notes on Shawda Ubb, and I'm having trouble tracking down a few sources. Namely,

Does anyone have access to any of these? Thanks for any leads! ~ SavageBob 04:04, October 12, 2010 (UTC)


Hey all,

This isn't a hunt for a source for a species article... but it is for a prominent member of a species. Maybe someone can help me out? I'm looking for whatever info The New Essential Guide to Alien Species has on M'iiyoom Onith , from either the H'nemthe or the Gotal entry. Thanks so much! Menkooroo 15:43, May 31, 2010 (UTC)

The Art of Star Wars Episode V: The Empire Strikes Back'Edit

Does anyone happen to have this book? I'm curious if it prints the concept mynock art that became the Tulvarees in Wanted by Cracken, and if so, if it identifies the artist. Thanks! ~ SavageBob 05:17, May 29, 2010 (UTC)


Hello again. Another semi-related request from NEGAS. Apparently Vulpter is mentioned in NEGAS, but the page I'm looking for is not included in Amazon's book search. According to Amazon, the mention is on page 213. Any help would be dearly appreciated. --Imperialles 03:43, May 27, 2010 (UTC)

  • Here's what it says about Vulpter: It's a Deep Core planet, it has a "toxic" environment, it is the location of one of the largest podracer factories in the galaxy (p. 214). "Although Vulpter was once a beautiful world of grasslands, forests, and other environments, it became a polluted wasteland during the Old Republic, the product of overindustrialization and exploitation at the hands of the Trade Federation. The world was for decades the dumping ground of the Federation, which saw the planet as only a factory and its inhabitants as inferior. [p. 214] One city was inhabitable for every five, [pp. 214–215] there were no surface animals left, and the residents suffered from diseases caused by the toxic air they breathed and water they drank. Instead of leaving, however, Vulptereens held on to the world they called home. The planet was considered so insignificant it was often left off star charts, first by the Trade Federation and then the Empire. After it came to power, the Empire blockaded the planet, not considering it worthy of even food shipments, causing widespread rioting and famines. However, the Rebel Alliance used the world as a safe haven and , after the Galactic Civil War, began successful reclamation efforts. [p. 215]". There's a bit more on Vulptereen biology, but I figured it wasn't relevant if you're just working on the planet. ~ SavageBob 04:15, May 27, 2010 (UTC)
    • Excellent. Thank you! --Imperialles 04:16, May 27, 2010 (UTC)


I've started writing up Revwien. Anyone know of any sources for the BTS on its initial design for Ep4 etc? --Eyrezer 12:23, May 19, 2010 (UTC)

  • It should be pictured in The Art of Episode IV and possibly Chronicles. I'll check for you tonight. ~ SavageBob 14:46, May 19, 2010 (UTC)
  • I found one in Monsters and Aliens from George Lucas, it contains a slightly cleaned up version of the image from the Technical Journal. There's also some sort of related short dialogue on the following page. Xicer9Atgar(Combadge) 15:17, May 19, 2010 (UTC)
    • Thanks, Xicer. If you could transcribe the dialogue here, that would be much appreciated. Likewise if you could scan the image. Mine currently has text in the background. --Eyrezer 20:23, May 19, 2010 (UTC)
      • Here's the image - File:Revwien-MAAFGL.jpg. I found the same image in the first edition of The Art of Star Wars, it's captioned with several other images under "Cantina sketches, Ron Cobb." And here's the text from Monsters and Aliens, everywhere I've put a forward slash is meant to represent a new line. I'm not sure if any of this will be useful though. "Where have you been?/Why haven't you called?/You don't love me./You think I'm ugly./You think I'm boring./You think I'm fat./You're looking for another special friend./What's the matter with you?/What's gotten into you?/You don't touch me like you used to./You don't even know I exist./You've really let me down./What am I going to tell our friends?/I'm never going to speak to you again./How can you be so selfish?/Why can't you just do this little thing for me?/I do everything for you./If you don't come, I'll die./Do you know how much this hurts?/I can't wait until something breaks your heart./I wish I could be as callous as you, but I can't./I don't see what you see in her./I've sacrificed everything for you./Do what you want./See if I care./Don't worry about me./I just love you so much." Um, yeah. =P Xicer9Atgar(Combadge) 21:22, May 19, 2010 (UTC)
        • Lol. I see. I'll see what I can do with this later. --Eyrezer 00:41, May 20, 2010 (UTC)
  • A variant of the Ron Cobb image appears on p. 86 of Star Wars: Chronicles. It appears to be the same image, only it has writing to the side, which reads, "Tropical Rain Forest / (Ambulatory Plant) / Traps and absorbs insect-like creatures. Great sense of humor—best joke-tellers in the galaxy." There's this in the bottom-left corner: Ron Cobb / 2903 A / 345th st. Santa Monica / 90405". Chronicles labels it "Revwien by Ron Cobb". ~ SavageBob 00:31, May 20, 2010 (UTC)
    • Great! How do we treat Chronicles information? The insect and joke-telling bits are new, although the latter explains the Revwien Comedy Academy Playhouse. It sounds like the Chronicles image is similar to the one from the Technical Journal I have since deleted. I was unable to read all the notes in that version, so this is useful. --Eyrezer 00:41, May 20, 2010 (UTC)
      • As concept art that never was officially used, I'd treat it (and the hand-written notes on it) as non-canon, similar to the fact that the Lamproids used to be called "Nakes" or whatever. A lot of this early continuity was washed away when WEG came on the scene ignorant that it ever existed. (On a similar note, I'm not sure you should use that concept image in the main text of the article; although the Revwiens look identical to the Cobb image, it is still concept art that as far as I know has not been canonized by being used to illustrate another source). ~ SavageBob 01:11, May 20, 2010 (UTC)
      • And just to clarify: A lot of Chronicles information is usable: There's often a blurb under an image that explains who a character is and what they did in-universe. In this case, however, the notes in question are scribbled on the image itself (presumably by Cobb), and should be taken simply as his own concept, not Lucas's or the SW universe's. ~ SavageBob 01:15, May 20, 2010 (UTC)
  • Aww, you're doing the Revwiens! There's one I'll-FA-it-someday to scratch off my list. Oh well. Just thought I'd chime in to mention that the Revwien does not appear in Bring Me the Children; it's part of the "fill art" that was added to some of the frames in Classic Star Wars: The Early Adventures 7 to make them fit the comic book format. If you still have Hyperspace, you can compare it to the original newspaper strip here. jSarek 02:26, May 20, 2010 (UTC)
    • Borsk was kind enough to upload that Revwien image. Are you suggesting I only link to the CSW:TEA7 and not BETC in my write-up? --Eyrezer 02:44, May 20, 2010 (UTC)
      • That's my suggestion, yes; much like I only cited info on the coloration of the Gektl to that issue, since that also was not in the original newspaper strips. jSarek 03:07, May 20, 2010 (UTC)
  • BTW, Eyrezer, you're considering the "tin soldier" miniature of a Revwien, including the information on its box, for your article, right? --Skippy Farlstendoiro 06:47, May 20, 2010 (UTC)
    • I've already got the image from Miniatures Battles on my draft page. Do you know what was on the actual miniature box? --Eyrezer 07:00, May 20, 2010 (UTC)
      • I'll see if I can find it, but this one won't be a one-day task. --Skippy Farlstendoiro 07:40, May 21, 2010 (UTC)


Greetings, sentientologists. I'm not a member of your esteemed WookieeProject, nor am I writing a species article, but I thought maybe one of you might be able to help me out. I'm currently trying to FA the Weequay homeworld Sriluur, which at least sort of relates to your project. But I cannot find a copy of NEGAS anywhere: I've checked every specialized book and comic store in Norway, and done some fairly thorough searches for a .pdf version. What I need is for someone to have a quick look at the Weequay entry in the book and see if I'm missing anything. Regards, --Imperialles 18:54, April 25, 2010 (UTC)

  • There may be restrictions on this content outside the U.S., but I can often find stuff like this by searching a book's contents on or (Barnes & Noble). Just in case you can't access their book previews, though, see here. ~ SavageBob 20:15, April 25, 2010 (UTC)
  • Maybe you want to know three other sources that probably mention Sriluur at some point, but are not currently listed in its Wookieepedia article. However, Mr. Robert A. Vitas specified them in his Completely Unofficial Star Wars Encyclopedia, and he is usually right. The sources are: Star Wars Adventure Journal 6 (Doesn't specify any more), Cracken's Rebel Operatives and The Essential Guide to Characters. Skippy Farlstendoiro 07:04, April 26, 2010 (UTC)
    • Thanks, Skippy. I was able to find some additional info in the Adventure Journal and the Essential Guide, but Cracken's Rebel Operatives didn't mention Weequay, much less Sriluur. I guess Mr. Vitas isn't infallible. Thank you! --Imperialles 10:35, April 26, 2010 (UTC)


No, I'm not disgusted, I'm writing up the Phuii, species of podracer Mars Guo. Do any of you have Star Wars Episode I: Racer or Star Wars: Racer Revenge? Do they have any pertinent info on the species? Thanks! ~ SavageBob 20:48, April 22, 2010 (UTC)

    • OK; let's see what you can find.
      • Let's talk Racer:
        • Mars Guo was the favorite in the amateur circuit "Spice Mine Run" of Mon Gazza (His best Lap Time = 01:29:470; Race Time = 04:30:880). It included several forks, a lot of spice dust in the air, and several heavy machinery to go through (including cranes and a caterpillar track; racers were to cross between the tracks). Then, racers went through a well-lit area, apparently a shopping center. Later, they crossed spice wastelands where points of reference were hard to find; then, a spiral tube; and then, another well-lit zone.
        • To play as Guo, you must first defeat him in the Spice Mine Run
        • Trying to check Guo's gaming stats to see if there's something that can be used, but can't confirm anything yet. Nonetheless, check this link; maybe you're lucky.
      • Mars Guo does appear in Racer Revenge, but I can only tell you that:
        • Guo can be selected to play as, but only after having successfully won another track. Sorry, don't own this one.
      • I'm also e-mailing you some concept art including an original design on "Marso" Guo. It is official, I'm giving you the place I took it from, but cannot upload it here now.
      • Phuii! Skippy Farlstendoiro 07:00, April 23, 2010 (UTC)
        • Thanks! Does the Mars Guo CG model used in the games look similar to his on-screen appearance? Nothing weird? ~ SavageBob 15:08, April 23, 2010 (UTC)
        • After the email, no need to answer this. He appears similar to his TPM self. ~ SavageBob 19:46, April 23, 2010 (UTC)

Star Wars RebellionEdit

Does anyone happen to have the old Star Wars Rebellion PC game loaded up? The game includes the world Garban, so I'm wondering what, if anything, its database says about the Jenets (yes, as with other alphabet challenge letters, we will probably end up with two J's! :)) ~ SavageBob 03:36, March 30, 2010 (UTC)


Well, I've decided to bite the bullet and write up Jiivahar as a "J" FAN. I've done all I can from Alien Encounters and the CSWE, but I still need the Alien Encounters article from SWAJ14. I don't think any of you guys have it, but thought I'd post the request here anyway. --Eyrezer 11:55, March 28, 2010 (UTC)

  • I have it. I'll be on the road for most of the day today, but I can get you relevant info tonight or tomorrow. The Alien Encounters info will probably be identical to the SWAJ stuff, for what it's worth, but it's still worth taking a look. ~ SavageBob 17:39, March 28, 2010 (UTC)
    • There's definitely some unique stuff in SWAJ14, re Jannpyr, Klebv, trarra and vine-nuts. --Eyrezer 21:53, March 28, 2010 (UTC)
      • Any chance on getting this tonight? --Eyrezer 09:21, March 29, 2010 (UTC)
        • check out [1] --Omicron 14:47, March 29, 2010 (UTC)
          • Ah, cool, thanks for the assist, Omicron. :) ~ SavageBob 15:17, March 29, 2010 (UTC)
  • Awesome! Thanks, very much. The last thing to check is whether the Jiivahar get mentioned in the intro letter from Tem Elis or the short story that kicks it off. --Eyrezer 22:35, March 29, 2010 (UTC)
    • Nope, it only mentions that an Abinyshi walks into the office which kicks off the article. ++Omicron 22:52, March 29, 2010 (UTC)
      • Sweet. --Eyrezer 23:18, March 29, 2010 (UTC)
  • Does it say who the artist is? I can't decipher their glyph. By the way, I don't suppose you want to photograph the Abinysh and Poss'Nomin pages too? (I already have the Tarc ones) --Eyrezer 23:29, March 29, 2010 (UTC)
    • Title page says the illustrations are by Pablo Hidalgo, so I guess he's the artist for all the picture. I'll try and get the other pages scanned tomorrow. ++Omicron 02:34, March 30, 2010 (UTC)
    • Ok the other pages have been scanned and uploaded to the same place as above. ++Omicron 16:25, March 30, 2010 (UTC)
      • Sweet. A couple of clarifications. What is on page 186? And is there a title page or anything on 181? --Eyrezer 08:16, March 31, 2010 (UTC)
        • Page 186 is part of the set, and I just added the first 2 pages of the article. ++Omicron 19:42, April 5, 2010 (UTC)
          • Thanks Omicron. I've bundled it all up into a pdf. Now let's start on the next article from that book ;) --Eyrezer 02:23, April 7, 2010 (UTC)

Tales from Jabba's PalaceEdit

Does anyone have a physical copy of this book? I have a digital one, but there are some problems in a section where the frog-dog Bubo is speaking to the monk Evilo Nailati, problems that make me think I may have misattributed various quotes to Bubo that actually are thought by Nailati. Could someone check if they get a chance? It would be in the "Tongue-tied: Bubo's Tale" short story where Bubo is speaking to Nailati about why it's beneficial to have your brain removed, so you can live forever, etc. etc. Thanks! ~ SavageBob 20:31, March 27, 2010 (UTC)

  • I do have a physical copy, but not readily available - it's at my parents'. If I happen to lay my hands on it soon, I'll tell you about that point. --Skippy Farlstendoiro 17:44, March 28, 2010 (UTC)
  • I just read the story, and looked at the the article, and the only difference is that my copy of the story says "I ate the detonation link, my teacher. The crucial part in Ree-Yees's plan." instead of "my master". What quote in particular are you referring to?
  • Omicron 23:05, March 28, 2010 (UTC)
    • Thanks for looking. The "my master" thing was my mistake, so I'll fix that. But I'm specifically concerned with this exchange:
Bubo croaked aloud in his own laughter. "For the money, of course. But what do you really want, Buboicullaar? I seek to learn. Unlike most of my brethren, I do not seek such abstract concepts as "truth" and "enlightenment." I am looking to amass as much information as I can; something I would be unable to do in my body, for it would die after less than a century. This way, I can remain alive for millennia, learning and growing mentally, and then be returned to a corporeal existence whenever I choose.
    • Who is saying what? The quote marks are missing, so it's hard to figure out what Bubo is saying or thinking and what the monk is saying or thinking. ~ SavageBob 04:48, March 29, 2010 (UTC)
      • It appears it goes like this:
Bubo: "For the money, of course."
Evilo Nailati: "But what do you really want, Buboicullaar? I seek to learn. Unlike most of my brethren, I do not seek such abstract concepts as "truth" and "enlightenment." I am looking to amass as much information as I can; something I would be unable to do in my body, for it would die after less than a century. This way, I can remain alive for millennia, learning and growing mentally, and then be returned to a corporeal existence whenever I choose."
Buboicullaar and Evilo Nailati in Tongue-tied: Bubo's Tale[src]

--Omicron 18:28, March 29, 2010 (UTC)

  • Thanks! That changed a few things in the entry. ~ SavageBob 22:07, March 29, 2010 (UTC)

Star Wars: Racer RevengeEdit

Anyone got this? I've just seen the articles on hummingbird, Criff and Biff and I am dubious. --Eyrezer 10:18, March 9, 2010 (UTC)

  • Not me, sorry. I only have the original Episode I Racer, and even then my copy is far from my reach right now. --Skippy Farlstendoiro 10:21, March 9, 2010 (UTC)
    • I'm also after the CSWE entry for Fnessia... --Eyrezer 13:03, March 10, 2010 (UTC)
    • Got this from another user. --Eyrezer 21:12, March 10, 2010 (UTC)


OK, so I've been trying to figure out the best X alien to do, and given my preference for movie species, looks like Xamster it is. I'm having trouble tracking down a few sources, though. Does anyone have access to these? The specific mention may be either to Xamster, Xagobah, or Neva Kee. Thanks for any help! ~ SavageBob 21:38, December 12, 2009 (UTC)

  • Star Wars: Episode I Racer
  • The Art of Star Wars Episode I: The Phantom Menace
  • YJCCGlogo Young Jedi Collectible Card Game - Boonta Eve Podrace (Card: Neva Kee)
  • SWInsider Star Wars Insider 65
  • The Official Star Wars Fact File 56
    • Good choice. I was also looking at these guys, but have made a start on the Xi Charrians instead. --Eyrezer 10:22, December 13, 2009 (UTC)
    • I will have a look at Star Wars: Episode I Racer for you tomorrow! --Axims 10:59, December 13, 2009 (UTC)
    • Thanks, Axims! I checked out a few guides online to glean a bit about Kee and his racer, but I'm sure there's more there. I think the game shows a full 3D representation of him, for example. Does it match the one in the article? What color is he in the game? And Ey, guess we may end up with two X FA aliens! :) ~ SavageBob 16:06, December 21, 2009 (UTC)
    • Sorry for the delays SavageBob, I'm slowly making my way through the levels of Racer so that I can unlock Kee's racer and character. Been abit busy..but has been a good reason to get out the old joystick for some racing fun hehe. I'll let you know soon!--Axims 10:55, December 22, 2009 (UTC)
      • Any luck, Axims? ~ SavageBob 04:30, January 4, 2010 (UTC)
    • Yup SavageBob, sorry about that. I underestimated how difficult it would be playing the levels that were required to unlock Neva, but I eventually succeeded! Anyway, I took some screenshots that shall hopefully answer your queries: just FYI, he was considered the track favourite of the "Baroo Coast" circuit (the track I had to win to unlock his character). I hope this helps, let me know if you need anything else!--Axims 12:20, January 5, 2010 (UTC)
      • Thanks! That helps a lot. :) ~ SavageBob 16:10, January 5, 2010 (UTC)
  • If you are still missing the YJC card, I suggest trying at the Jedi Council Forums. I've had success there in the past with such threads as this and this. If you don't have an account there, I could ask for you. Another place to try might be the CCG, TCG, and Boardgames forum. --Eyrezer 04:29, January 17, 2010 (UTC)
    • Yeah, I don't have accounts on any of those, but I suppose it's never too late to create one! Maybe once I get some of my work under control over the weekend. I can't imagine that the card has any new info, but it would be nice to know for sure! ~ SavageBob 04:34, January 17, 2010 (UTC)
      • One account would serve for the both of them. --Eyrezer 11:55, January 17, 2010 (UTC)


Could someone tell me what the CSWE says about Dracos? Thanks, ~ SavageBob 17:01, November 24, 2009 (UTC)

  • "One of Luke Skywalker's students in military training after the Battle of Endor, he looked forward to receiving Jedi training, but Skywalker refused to teach anyone in the ways of the Force at that early point. Dracos was a reptilian humanoid with a pointed muzzle, green-and-yellow scaled skin, and yellow-and-brown eyes." (Volume I, p. 204) Green Tentacle (Talk) 21:49, November 24, 2009 (UTC)
    • Ah, thanks! ~ SavageBob 22:41, November 24, 2009 (UTC)

Anoo-dat Blue and KobokEdit

I'm thinking of doing a few Droids species, so I was wondering if anyone had access to this article:

Also, since this is Polyhedron, is it canonical? ~ SavageBob 06:53, November 13, 2009 (UTC)

And on that note, can someone please look up "Gaff" and "Kobok" for me in A Guide to the Star Wars Universe 2nd and 3rd, and in the Complete Star Wars Encyclopedia? Thanks! ~ SavageBob 16:05, November 13, 2009 (UTC)

  • I have the Polyhedron article. --Eyrezer 06:59, November 15, 2009 (UTC)

I'm still stalled on Kobok due to no AGTTSWU or CSWE, if anyone can help. ~ SavageBob 17:01, November 24, 2009 (UTC)

  • Gaff, from AGTTSWU 2E: "Gaff was the aide-de-camp of Governor Koong during the early days of the Empire. Gaff was a Kobok, a green, fuzzy insectoid with deadly stingers on his forearms and three eyes. One of these eyes was located on the back of his head." There is no entry for Kobok. jSarek 20:35, November 24, 2009 (UTC)
    • No Kobok entry in CSWE. The Gaff one is pretty much lifted from CUSWE. "A Kobok, he served as one of General Koong's henchmen, working from the Tawntoom Citdael on Roon during the early years of the New Order. Gaff, who made a name for himself for his skills as an assassin and spy, often wore a Koboth Insurgent Mantle, although it was not known if he actually participated in the Mavvan Conflict. Gaff considered his position in Koong's operations to be a low-point in his career, but it paid well. When Koong destroyed the Citadel in an effort to kill Imperial Admiral Screed, Gaff was believed to have been caught in the blast. With no body found, many Roonans came to believe that he had somehow survived and fled offplanet." (Volume I, p. 307) Green Tentacle (Talk) 21:54, November 24, 2009 (UTC)
      • Great, thanks, you two! ~ SavageBob 22:41, November 24, 2009 (UTC)


I'm trying to research Hoover, but I'm missing a few sources. Anyone got access to , Star Wars: The Visual Dictionary, Who's Who in Jabba's Palace, Star Wars: The Complete Visual Dictionary, or Star Wars: The Ultimate Visual Guide? --Eyrezer 00:06, November 1, 2009 (UTC)

  • Are you sure they're mentioned in Star Wars: The Ultimate Visual Guide? I was in the bookstore today and looked, but I could find no mention. As for SW:TCVD, it says, "Jabba's pet Hoover (below) looks harmless, but creeps up on sleeping victims to suck their blood at night, using its nose trunk to slither through clothing or around blankets." (p. 263). The same exact information is on p. 61 of SW:TVD (since TCVD is a reprint of all the VDs combined). ~ SavageBob 04:12, November 1, 2009 (UTC)
    • Thanks for that. I'm basing the Ultimate on what was already there, although given the look of this edit/change, perhaps Chack meant the Complete guide... --Eyrezer 04:30, November 1, 2009 (UTC)
      • For the record, I checked Ultimate in the bookstore and it was not in there. --Eyrezer 21:54, November 24, 2009 (UTC)


Again, I lack the CSWE at the moment. Are there entries for Gorph, Slugga, Vork, Mudgub, or Titterbug/Jitterbug? Thanks as always! ~ SavageBob 21:18, October 31, 2009 (UTC)

  • I'm afraid I couldn't find any of those in the CSWE. Sorry! --Axims 22:59, October 31, 2009 (UTC)


My copy of The Complete Star Wars Encyclopedia is in transit. Can someone check whether the Fuzzums or their homeworld Dandelo get articles? If so, what do they say, and what page are they on? Thanks! ~ SavageBob 22:47, October 2, 2009 (UTC)

  • According to Master Jonathan, there is no entry for Dandelo, but the Fuzzum entry reads "Members of this primitive species looked like balls of fuzz with long, thin legs. Fuzzem never went anywhere without their spears." --Eyrezer 00:42, October 3, 2009 (UTC)
    • Cool; that's verbatim what the SWE says about them. Thanks! ~ SavageBob 01:46, October 3, 2009 (UTC)


Anyone got access to Rebel Force: Renegade? --Eyrezer 22:50, September 14, 2009 (UTC)

  • No, but it's searchable on Han and Chewie jump to the Arkanis sector's planet Tythe, and encounter an Ychthytonian at a place called Kislov's Gambling Palace, a dive with a rough clientele. The bartender is "a dour Ychthytonian…juggling mugs of grog and caf in each of his four hands." (Chapter 5, only mention of the species.) ~ SavageBob 22:47, October 2, 2009 (UTC)

While looking for a suitable V replacement (now that Vuvrian has been demoted), I found Viidaav (species). I've got a start on it, but I'm wondering if they maybe have an entry in The Complete Star Wars Encyclopedia. My copy's in transit, so I can't check. Anyone else got a copy? They'd probably be under "Viidaav" if anywhere. Also, does anyone have the Essential Atlas yet? I'm wondering if there's a planet called Viidaav there. Thanks! ~ SavageBob 22:08, 14 August 2009 (UTC)

  • Viidaav gets an entry in the Atlas Appendix, and is placed in the Mid Rim. It may also appear in one of the Clone Wars maps, but I am not sure about that. --Eyrezer 00:42, 15 August 2009 (UTC)
  • Both Ifindyourlackoffaithdisturbing and Chack Jadson were able to confirm its CSWE entry:
Viidaav - An arid world dominated by rocky deserts. The natives, also known as the Viidaav, existed in small settlements near the largest outcroppings of rock. The planet was the site of a Separatist base during the early stages of the Clone Wars, until Republic scouts found it. Count Dooku and General Grievous allowed the base to fall to Republic clone troopers in order to spring a trap. They planned to set off bombs that would have rendered the planet's surface unlivable - a scheme that the native Viidaav learned of at the end of the battle. Rather than see their homeworld destroyed, several Viidaav soldiers sacrificed themselves to shut down the bombs. - CSWE, Vol. 3, p 306. --Eyrezer 00:51, 15 August 2009 (UTC)
  • Awesome, thanks! When you say the Atlas appendix, does that mean the long list of random planets that get nothing more than grid coordinates? ~ SavageBob 01:29, 15 August 2009 (UTC)
    • Yes, all 4,400 of them. They get a region and a co-ordinate. Hopefully sectors to come in later online incarnations or something. --Eyrezer 03:27, 15 August 2009 (UTC)

Morseerian and Quor'savEdit

I'm looking for a couple of sources so that Morseerian and Quor'sav can both be finished. The first is "The Evolution of Star Wars: Exploring the Lost Cut" in Star Wars Insider 41. It includes an image cut from ANH of something that may be a Quor'sav.

The second is Episode I Adventures 8: Trouble on Tatooine. I'm not sure whether it's the main book or the game book, but this supposedly has a Morseerian or two in it.

I've pinged Jaymach about both of these, but he seems to be away at the moment. Any other ideas who I should hit up? Thanks! ~ SavageBob 01:15, 28 July 2009 (UTC)

Rycar and Quorsav SWHS
As to the first, NOWIS has Insider 41. Apparently as part of the article on scenes or shots cut from ANH to make it faster paced, there is this image with an accompanying footnote saying "[6] Deleted gag with little "Flash Gordon" confronting his spindly pursuer in a Mos Eisley back alley." Then in the actual text of the article, there is a paragraph describing the scene:
"Another deleted gag appears in Mos Eisley, while the stormtroopers are searching the city. In a back alley, a little person listed in the logs as "Flash Gordon" is pursued by an alien so tall that only its stilt-like legs show on camera. "Flash" ends up running toward camera, escaping between the legs of the alien, which totters around in confusion. This weird shot later found its true destiny—it was re-used by the legendary "Star Wars Holiday Special" in the featurette called "Life on Tatooine."
That surreal clip, simultaneously familiar yet foreign, was typical of the treasures I found in the Lost Cut.

You may like to ask NOWIS if you need any more information. --Eyrezer 01:59, 28 July 2009 (UTC)
Excellent information, thanks! Any idea what the page numbers are? ~ SavageBob 02:10, 28 July 2009 (UTC)
The article starts on page 68 and runs to page 75. The paragraph is on page 75, while the picture and caption are on page 74. Thanks, again, to NOWIS. --Eyrezer 02:22, 28 July 2009 (UTC)
Awesome, thanks! I've left him a note to thank him as well. Now hopefully Jaymach will have that choose-your-own-adventure thingie... ~ SavageBob 03:30, 28 July 2009 (UTC)

Vodran: New Essential ChronologyEdit

Hi. I've been quite absent for a while, but I'm trying to make ammends by nominating asap a quite interesting species that I hope you'll enjoy. Unfortunately, my library lacks two of the sources mentioning the Vodrans. One of the shortages is the Encyclopedia; I'm already working on it in its own forum. The other one is the New Essential Chronology. Where are the Vodrans in the book? Well, I'm not even familiar with this Chronology, but my wupiupi is on something like Pre-Republic era, circa 25,100 BBY, during the Hutt-Xim War. If the section mentioning the Vodrans is too long to be posted here, my e-mail is open for you. Skippy Farlstendoiro 16:30, October 4, 2010 (UTC)

  • Courtesy of Amazon's searchable version of the book, I found this: "In the twenty-fifth year of Xim's rule, the Hutt empire demolished one of his fleets at Vontor in the Si'klaata Cluster. Two more battles followed, but by that point, the Hutts had forged the Treaty of Vontor, which bound the Klatooinians, Vodrans, and Nikto to them as permanent slaves. In the Third Battle of Vontor (circa 25,100 B.B.Y.), the Hutt-allied conscripts vanquished Xim's war droids. Kossak the Hutt declared victory, and Xim died in shame as a prisoner in Kossak's dungeon. The Tion Cluster split into competing states." (pp. 4–5). Hope this helps! ~ SavageBob 16:48, October 4, 2010 (UTC)
