  • I added one to the article, will it do? - Sikon 10:21, 16 Aug 2005 (UTC)

Republic Vessel?Edit

Say, hasn't the Mandalore said the Ravager was a ship of the Mandalorians? - Tulon 21:45, 20 Jan 2006 (UTC)

  • A Mandalorian in the game states it still bears the wounds of Mandalorian guns. So its unlikely it belonged to the Mandalorians. --Fade 12:04, 5 February 2006 (UTC)

So yea its a republic ship.

From a certain point of viewEdit

The Ravager was significantly larger than the Interdictor-class cruisers which formed the backbone of Nihilus' fleet.

Having just watched the relevant movies again, I'm pretty sure that the Ravager is about the same size as an Interdictor-class vessel - the other ships look smaller because they're further away from the camera. It's all a matter of perspective. I mean, the Sith fighters that fly in with the Ravager look exactly the same size as they do next to a Interdictor-class ship. (Ulicus 11:13, 2 June 2006 (UTC))

  • Well it's been days now and I've got no response. So I'm editing the "size" issue out.(Ulicus 13:48, 13 June 2006 (UTC))
  • The Ravager is supposed to be an Interdictor-class, only not altered by the Star Forge. Obviously, the size would be the same. The class should be renamed.
    • Do we know that? I recognize it as a popular fanon theory, but is there any proof for it? Charlii 23:05, 16 June 2006 (UTC)
      • In KotOr I, it was meantioned that Revan used the Star Forge to change the ships he used in the Mandalorian Wars, ships like the Ravager. Also, the ships look very similar (note the gap in the front of the hull). It would make no sense at all if they were two different classes. But no, it is never directly said that it is the same class, but it is definitely not a "Ravager" class ship for obvious reasons--there were many other ships like it and it is definitely not the first of its kind.
  • This is Fanon, well it sounds like it, Just because it has a gap in the front doesn't mean it's an interdictor, and currently no Canonical name has been introduced i think we should leave it as a ravager-class. RC-1187 03:20, 25 June 2006 (UTC)

Besides Tobin says Nihilus pulled his fleet out of the reckage of Malachor V so the other two Interdictor Cruisers couldn't have been modified by the Starforge. The Ravager has to be a different class.

Ship ClassEdit

  • Has the Ravager-Class ships been given a specific official name yet?
  • Anyone think that this ship looks waaayyy too similar to the Star Destroyers in the OT? Even the Venator-class ships, which are more direct predecessors, don't look like such a blatant rip-off. lalala_la
  • Perhaps it was an attempt to explain where the prototypes for the Empire's Star Destroyers came from, that is, adapted Sith cruiser plans. Much the same way that a lot of the CIS' design elements found their way into the Empires creations via Palpatine. Darth Vox 02:09, 11 June 2007 (UTC)Severin

The Ravager and the LeviathanEdit

  • I know this is an old topic, but this is something that really annoys me because more than once in KotOR it was mentioned that Malak and Revan's fleet was made up of Republic ships modified by the Star Forge. The Republic ony had three different classes of ships before: the Ravager-style capital ship, the smaller Hammerhead-class (like the Endar Spire and Harbinger), and the unnamed cruiser that is in the same style of the hammerheads (but no hammerhead). This assumes of course that the smaller two did exist beforehand. If not, it makes no difference, because the Republic has nothing else even resembling the Leviathan, other than the Ravager-style vessals. So which ships did Revan use the Star Forge to modify? Obviously not the Hammerheads. The only logical explaination is that Interdictors were modified Ravager-style ships.

There is no contradiction to this either. Though Colonel Tobin says that Nihilus tore the Leviathan from Malachor, he only says he took the Ravager from there, not any other ships. He did have Interdictors as well, but they were in pristine condition, unlike the Ravager which was falling apart (on a side note, Nihilus only used the banged-up--to say the least--Ravager because it showed how powerful he was. We can assume that some Interdictor-class ships survived the Jedi Civil War, and would undoubtedly go into the hands of the Sith. Also, we actually see Malak's entire fleet more than once , and all of the ships are Interdictors (though I admit the Ravager-style ones hadn't been designed yet). Other times we see hundred and even thousands of Interdictors being built by the Star Forge, obviously being modified by it (the Sith are evil, not stupid--they wouldn't think twice about doing this). The instances I refer to are first when the Ebon Hawk escapes Taris, a few dozen Interdictors can be seen in orbit, and as Carth says the fleet is orbiting the planet, though clearly this is not all the fleet; the second instance is during a cutscene, in which Interdictors are seen emerging from the Star Forge; the third instance is in the Battle of Rakata Prime, in which all Sith Capital ships seen are also Interdictors; fourth instance is in the (albeit technically non-canonical) dark side ending which shows thousands of Interdictors emerging from the Star Forge. Clearly, all of Malak's (and presumably Revan's) fleet consisted of Interdictor-class vessals which were created and modified by the Star Forge. Since members of the Republic recognized these ships as modified Republic vessals, and because there is only one kind of vessal that resembles the Interdictors, it stands to reason that the Leviathan was a Republic Ravager-style vessal that was modified by the Star Forge.

I'm going to stop now because I'm ranting. Bredd13 20:12, 2 December 2006 (UTC)

  • Except Interdictors can be seen among the wreckage around Malachor V, which was destroyed before the Star Forge was discovered. -- I need a name (Complain here) 20:16, 2 December 2006 (UTC)
  • Are you sure? Not that I don;t take your word for it, but could you possibly post a picture of this? (I don't have time to play the game again just to see this.) Bredd13 02:38, 9 December 2006 (UTC)
  • Actualy you can see that in the videos of the KOTORII ligth side ending, where there is a grand part of an interdictor class ship.. its without the spire of the bridge, the engines and the frontal part... though you can see clearly its an interdictor. Viento 21:45, 30 January 2007

Piloting Edit

Does Nihilus have a telepathic link with his pilots that tells them where he wants to travel? If not it'd be pretty hard to go all the places that he does. That's the only explanation I could think of, though it's never specifically mentioned. I think it'd have a place in the article if anybody could get any hard evidence. Graal 04:41, 17 December 2006 (UTC)

  • I personally think he used the force to destroy their minds and used dominate mind or mind trick on them to command them. NaruHina Talk Anakinsolo 01:26, 5 June 2008 (UTC)

ImagesEdit

Per request. --RedemptionRedemptionusersymbolTalk 21:05, 9 April 2007 (UTC)

Force-zombies? Edit

Why does this article have mention of Force-zombies? Am I entirely too forgetful? I could have sworn nothing like that was on board the Ravager. Can anyone help clarify? Darth Vox 01:54, 11 June 2007 (UTC)Severin

Interesting question... Quite a speculation I think, maybe should be deleted.--Domlith 14:22, 11 June 2007 (UTC)

They are not "force-zombies" they are Sith Crewman whose minds were dominated by Darth Nihilus. Fixed. --Nichtganz 16:15, 27 August 2007 (UTC)

The game mentions them as force zombies via Kotor Tool 68.45.219.63 06:18, 9 August 2008 (UTC)

LengthEdit

What is the source for the value?--Domlith 14:22, 11 June 2007 (UTC)

  • As no source has been provided, I have removed 1,767 meters as the length of the ship. It is unbecoming of an FA to have unsourced facts... --Eyrezer 11:10, 6 November 2007 (UTC)

discription Edit

Isn't the description a little much? It is a little exaggerated and is a bit redundant. I think that section should be in a bit of a nutshell. (- -) 22:40, 15 August 2007 (UTC)

Crew Edit

I edited a section on the Force Zombies. Right now a section needs to be added on the fact their were Sith officers aboard and not sith commandos. However i want other people's opinions on this --Nichtganz 16:27, 27 August 2007 (UTC)

  • Their were sith comm'dos onboard. They wore red suits and were designated such by the targeting reticule. NaruHina Talk Anakinsolo 01:23, 5 June 2008 (UTC)

Life Support Edit

If I remember correctly, there was no life support onboard the Ravager. Nihilus used the Force to keep people alive on it, even if barely. It had an innumeral number of holes in the hull so a life support system would probably be useless anyway. YOur thoughts? NaruHina Talk Anakinsolo 01:21, 5 June 2008 (UTC)

  • If there was no atmosphere, the player would die immediately after setting foot on board it. The Mandalorian talking to Mandalore says that the ship's particle fields keep air and stuff inside the vessel. -MPK 20:05, 5 June 2008 (UTC)

Featured Edit

This maybe isn't the right place to bring up this, but why is this article still featured? The infobox and the history aren't completely sourced. --Xd1358 Talk 13:47, October 28, 2009 (UTC)
