Behind the Scenes - Origin of the NameEdit

On page 11 (chapter 2) of "Lando Calrissian and the Flamewind of Oseon" the word "Corcuscating" is used to describe the effects of impacts on the shields of the Millennium Falcon. The word "Corcuscating" is a form of the word "Coruscant" as in to pulse or flash brightly. I suspect this description from 1983 may have been an influence on Timothy Zahn when he devised the name of the Galaxy's capitol. Does anyone have any additional info in light of this context? -- Frank V Bonura 17:47, July 3, 2011 (UTC)

  • "Coruscant," "coruscate," and its derivative "coruscating" are both standard English words, so it would be hard to prove any direct connection between Smith's use of the term and Zahn's name for the capital planet. Indeed, I'd say it's probably more likely Zahn just used the word due to the standard English usage of "coruscant" rather than referencing any other EU. At any rate, the annotated Heir to the Empire comes out soon, so maybe he'll address the name choice for the planet there. ~SavageBOB sig 19:34, July 3, 2011 (UTC)

Behind the Scenes - PopulationEdit

Okay, this is driving me nuts. Traitor DOES NOT say the population IS 1 Trillion. It distictly says that 1 Trillion is a gross OVER estimate, but goes on to use it in Jacen Solo's hypothetical musing on how survivors of the Vong conquest could be used as a weapon against the invaders for the sake of easier math. Am I seriously the only one that noticed this? It seems like everyone in the fandom just went "HURR DURR, it says 1 trillion, DURR" paying zero attention to the context of that number's usage.

Even worse, the misconception of it being a literal figure got so popular, even LucasArts dropped their brains and jumped on the bandwagon, farting out supporting entries in a few other EU sources later on. --Othalan (talk) 10:36, June 26, 2012 (UTC)

Past TenseEdit

Does this article realy still need to be put into past tense? I've checked and it seems fine to me.Unsigned comment by Badinkadink (talk • contribs).


This is HugeEdit

This planet is so big it's mindblowing. I can't even begin to wrap my mind around how huge it is and how the city runs. If you got lost, you're probably screwed. How do you find your way around the city? It's so freaking massive! {{SUBST:User:Henryjh98/Sig}} 21:35, January 16, 2013 (UTC)

Population underestimateEdit

One Trillion?

The population of Earth with no water a population density of Macau (Chinese City) would be around 100 Trillion, and the population density looks greater than that of the most developed cities of Earth. I'm aware this is the official number, but its ridiculous. With 1 Trillion residents, and given that its radius is very similar to that of Earth, it would have a population density similar to Germany. Clearly it is more dense than Germany, there are thousands of stories in buildings that cover the entire planet. How did whoever came up with 1 trillion possibly arrive at that number, its beyond nonsensical. The population could easily be upwards of 250-500 Trillion to even 1 Quadrillion. Unsigned comment by 172.250.168.91 (talk • contribs).

  • Sigh. It never gets old… Whether the official 1 trillion figure makes sense or not is irrelevant. We go by what canon sources say, regardless of how much it makes sense. It's not up to us to create new canon, only document the one that already exists. --Lelal Mekha Old Republic military symbol (Audience Room) 14:03, February 21, 2014 (UTC)
