The PilotsEdit

  • If the Fighters are made by the Star Forge then where did the pilots come from? Cloning? Then Why didnt they Clone Sith Masters?

Droid Starfighters, maybe? -- SFH 21:05, 1 Oct 2005 (UTC)

  • There were plently of normal people recruited into the service of the Sith fleet, so it could easily be normal troopers. --Fade 21:39, 16 Nov 2005 (UTC)
  • They were normal troopers who served in the Mandalorian Wars fighting in the same exact craft, they used the Star Forge to copy the Old Republic starfighters from the war, and created new Interdictor cruisers as frigates, the pilots were normal men who followed revan at the end of the Mandalorian Wars to fight the Republic, as many people did, all of the men were normal people in the Sith army, the sheer amount of worlds that flocked to the Sith after they won battles against the Republic, and it only became easier when Revan and Malak found the Star Forge and started creating droids and fleets of ships, there was a nearly infinite amount of new recruits looking to join the Sith, as they all believed the Republic was going to die anyway.Pablo-Jill 13:44, 26 March 2006 (UTC)

First AppearedEdit

How can the Sith fighters first appear when Revan and Malak returned, but in Shadows and Light, it is clearly seen landing on Kashyyyk. Redemption 01:26, 6 Dec 2005 (UTC)

  • What do you mean "first appeared"? Admiral J. Nebulax 22:14, 6 Dec 2005 (UTC)
  • "First appearance" applies to the real world.
    • In Shadow and Light Duron is having a vision of the future. So he is predicting the Sith Fighters that will serve under Revan and Malak. Jasca Ducato 16:02, 1 Jan 2006 (UTC)
      • Oh... Admiral J. Nebulax 17:14, 1 Jan 2006 (UTC)
      • That's not correct; the Sith fighter is seen in the 'present' of the comic as Guun Han arrives on Kashyyyk --Fade 15:49, 6 February 2006 (UTC)
      • Well, the Sith fighters from before they found the Star Forge were all created during and before the Mandalorian Wars, if you watch KOTOR2 videos, which are sanctioned by lucasarts then you will see that the fleet they dug out of Malachor V were the Sith fighters or at least the same designs of them, therefore they were Republic craft long before the Sith Empire of KOTOR showed up.Pablo-Jill 13:45, 26 March 2006 (UTC)


Does anyone with a scanner have TOTJ: KOTOR? It'd be good to get a picture of the proto-Sith fighters from that comic. I don't recall where exactly they're shown, but I'm pretty sure it's when Thon is explaining the Dark Side to Nomi. Kuralyov 23:17, 1 April 2006 (UTC)

  • They're similar, but not exactly the same.

Dorak's statementEdit

Master Dorak, while speaking with the player, mentions that among Malak's fleet there are Republic capital ships, but also strange ships that have an "alien shape". Is he referring to the Sith fighters? And, if true, are these fighters built by the Rakata? 13:55, 14 April 2006 (UTC)

  • Well, it is true that they used mainly Republic ships from the fleet that was led by Revan, and the Star Forge recreated the design of the republic ships in the Mandalorian Wars, I know this because of KOTOR II, it shows Sith fighters, and says that those fighters were at Malachor, along with the Ravager. I believe he is referring to the Interdictor-class cruiser ships that were made famous by Malak's flagship, the Leviathan
    • Nope. The Leviathan was a former Republic vessel. Those are the only two ships of the Sith Fleet (besides what looks like gunships floating in the Star Forge). I simply presume we don't see some Rakatan Vessels. . --Redemption 22:23, 1 May 2006 (UTC)
  • All of Malak's fleet was made by the Star Forge, so we have to have seen Rakatan ships. The Leviathan was a Republic ship, but it was changed by the Star Forge. It even looks alien, with its smooth, curved hull. Dorak was referring to them, but the Leviathan is still a Republic ship.

Mandalorian origin?Edit

in the most recent KOTOR comic, at the Battle of Vanquo, the Mandalorians used starfighters identical to the "Sith fighters" of Revan's forces.JustinGann 18:49, 14 October 2006 (UTC)

    • Never mind, Andrew convinced me they are different!JustinGann 07:04, 16 October 2006 (UTC)

Origin of the Sith FighterEdit

So, the databank states that the Sith Fighter was created when Revan discovered the Star Forge (thus suggesting the Rakata are the original inventors of the model), but this model is shown in the Knights of the Old Republic series as a ship commonly used by the Republic. What is the "right version"? Canderous Ordo 20:29, 17 November 2006 (UTC)

saboath squadron?Edit

don't you guys think these ships look like the saboath fighters from jedi starfighter?

  • You know, they rather do. Just like the Interdictors resemble the Sabaoth Destroyers. BioWare appears to have ripped off from Jedi Starfighter there, but there's nothing we can do about it. 23:30, 7 December 2008 (UTC)

Sith Fighters on Taris Edit

In Star Wars: Knights of the old republic, there were 2 sith fighters on Taris in front of the military base, why did Revan not steal them after he had stolen the sith uniforms and the launch codes? there were enough for him and carth

Battle of Ruusan? Edit

I just finished re-reading Darth Bane: Path of Destruction and I noticed that a Sith Interceptor was mentioned in it. At first I assumed that it was the Buzzard, but then the Buzzard was mentioned as well. Could this Sith Interceptor also be the one that appeared in PoD? It's not an unreasonable assumption, since the Republic was still usng Hammerheads.Taral, Dark Lord of the Sith 12:59, 22 August 2008 (UTC)

  • Its possible, but are you sure you don't mean the Sith InterloperJustinGann 20:24, 26 November 2008 (UTC)

Ambiguous origin? Edit

These Sith Fighters are not of "ambiguous origin", they are specifically mentioned in Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic the video game that they are created by the powers of the Star Forge along with other types of ships and fighters.Darth Kranatos 13:47, 23 August 2008 (UTC)

does KOTOR CG mention a size?JustinGann 20:24, 26 November 2008 (UTC)


i believe that "sith fighter" should link to a disambiguation because of the different models including the Sith-Imperial starfighter. also the major edit tag has been here for about 20 days already. ASDF1239Chiss Ascendancy-DISCUSSION- 04:34, May 13, 2010 (UTC)
