ShipsEdit

Out of interest, what ships were in Cracken's Threat Dossier? I know of the eight New-Class ships, the Republic-class Star Destroyer, and I believe it had the Hapan Battle Dragon and Nova cruiser, but what other ships did it have in it? I'm trying to track ships to the sourcebooks they appeared in.

This book...Non Canon? Edit

I've run into a number of people online who claim that everything in this particular book is non-canon because of the noted innacuracies in it as far as ship types and Han/Leia's wedding.

Any official Wookiepedian stand on this? Should I just tell him "Canon is cannon, Deal with it." ?

Elements of it clearly contradict other canon. Whether anything has been done to resolve the contradictions, I have no idea. Some parts are obviously just flat wrong and have to be ignored, but other stuff can probably be made to fit. But unless Lucasfilm has slapped an Infinities label on it, it's still canon for now. Maybe you should ask Leland Chee; it's his job to work out stuff like this. — Red XIV (talk) 02:20, January 18, 2012 (UTC)
Glancing our Wookieepedia's Canon article, I think there is a reasonable basis to disregard RPG material when it conflicts with more substantial material (RPG sourcebook vs novel). Specifically:
"Games are a special case, as generally only the stories are C-canon, while things like stats and gameplay may not be"
I think pictures in articles are nice. But a hack job illustration in an RPG sourcebook shouldn't be used over an actual description in a novel. Home One 22:40, May 19, 2012 (UTC)

With the information in this book now fairly dubious and having been superseded by other works (starships of the galaxy and essential guide to warfare spring to mind). should everything be disregarded Gazc5 (talk) 20:50, July 20, 2013 (UTC)

Should a section be added that lists the inaccuracies in the book Gazc5 (talk) 21:05, July 20, 2013 (UTC)
