Wookieepedia aspires to be a reliable source for all Star Wars fans to read and draw information from, and as such, fan-created continuity and fan fiction are not allowed within our articles. All in-universe material must be attributable to a reliable, published source.

Please do not remove talk page and forum comments, as they are part of the public record. Remember that you should always sign your comments on talk and vote pages using four tildes, like this: ~~~~.

Formatting Edit

Thank you for contributing to Wookieepedia. I see that you have made quite a few Galaxies-related articles. However, please remember that {{char-stub}} or any stub template must go after the main text body and before appearances. I've seen you placed them before the text, which is not the way it's done. Also, for characters, it is appropriate to place a {{Eras}} template on the top of the page, too. Cheers, JangFett (Talk) 21:13, June 2, 2010 (UTC)

Moving pages Edit

There's a button at the top for moving pages properly. Don't copy and paste them to a new name. -- I need a name (Complain here) 16:52, July 14, 2010 (UTC)

Imperial Oasis GAN Edit

Hey. Do you plan to work on your Imperial Oasis good article nomination? There are several unaddressed objection that have been there for a week; and if you don't address them within two weeks, the AgriCorps will start a vote to remove your nomination. Thanks. -- 1358 (Talk) 19:29, August 13, 2010 (UTC)

New pages Edit

Hey there. Thanks for contributing with the creation of new pages. I just wanted to remind you that each article needs to be placed in the appropriate category. Thanks. Cylka-talk- 17:54, October 8, 2010 (UTC)

Dorumaa Edit

  • Hi Starsider, I'd just like to take this opportunity to congratulate you for all your work on enhancing Wookieepedia's SWG content. I just noticed in the edit history of the Dorumaa article, you added SWG as an indirect mention in the appearances section of the article, so I was wondering if you could let me know where in SWG Dorumaa is mentioned. I am trying to improve Wookieepedia's "Living Force campaign" articles, so this information would be very useful to me. Thanks! --Jinzler 13:49, November 27, 2010 (UTC)
    • Hi there, thanks for the compliments. I'll get back to you on that as soon as I can :) StarsiderSWG 17:52, November 28, 2010 (UTC)

Imperial Oasis Incident Edit

  • Just wanted to say that I really liked your winning painting. Hung it up in the first floor of my Mustafar bunker :). OLIOSTER (talk) 22:11, November 30, 2010 (UTC)
    • Hehe, thanks a lot, I'm glad you like it :) StarsiderSWG 00:31, December 1, 2010 (UTC)

Image CategoriesEdit

Your uploads from SWG are great, but they'd be even more awesome if you would throw as some image categories on them. SinisterSamurai 01:24, December 22, 2010 (UTC)

That Edit

Hi, when creating your numerous SWG articles, please note one should say <name> was an individual who lived rather than <name> was an individual that lived. Cheers. 1358 (Talk) 20:25, January 6, 2011 (UTC)

Yoda Stories Edit

You seem to have a reason to believe Yoda Stories should not be considered non-canon. Wookieepedia has always treated this video game as a non-canon source. Please explain your reasoning before changing every article to your preference. Toprawa and Ralltiir 21:18, February 17, 2011 (UTC)

  • A lot of the articles listed aspects Yoda stories as canon, not non-canon. So I simply made it ambiguous. Ambiguous seems fine, since there has been no official ruling that the game is canon or not. Elements of it are canon (such as the items, planets etc). So making it ambiguous makes sense. StarsiderSWG 21:20, February 17, 2011 (UTC)
    • Just because elements that appear in the game are canon doesn't by itself elevate the game to a higher canonicity. AFAIK, Wookieepedia treats the game as non-canon because the storyline is simply incompatible with the rest of Star Wars continuity during that time period (between ESB and ROTJ), which is the same treatment we would apply to any source of similar circumstance. Respectfully speaking, I would recommend not taking it upon yourself to decide that we're going to change all of our articles because it makes more sense to you that way. Your best bet is to start a community forum discussion if you're that invested in the issue. Toprawa and Ralltiir 21:31, February 17, 2011 (UTC)
      • I honestly couldn't care either way. I can just as easily make sure they say the appearances of items and planets in that game are non-canon StarsiderSWG 21:35, February 17, 2011 (UTC)

Cookie! Edit

Wookieecookie
OLIOSTER (talk) has awarded you a Wookiee Cookie!
For being one of the few people here on Wookieepedia (besides myself) who actively improves articles related to Star Wars Galaxies. Keep up the good work!

DathomirEdit

Hey Starsider—I was wondering if you had played the Death Troopers content on SWG? I had some questions regarding the backstory and was hoping you could help me out. Darth Trayus(Trayus Academy) 00:42, August 3, 2011 (UTC)

    • Hi there! I havent done all of it yet, though I'd be more than happy to help as best as I can. If there's any questions you have, feel free to ask. Otherwise I can post what information I know of later on StarsiderSWG 00:32, August 4, 2011 (UTC)
      • What you've told me so far is great. I'll be asking more about story information pretty soon, but for now, could you tell me which different species appear as members of the undead in the game? Animals included, if any apply. Thanks so much! Darth Trayus(Trayus Academy) 23:42, August 23, 2011 (UTC)

RE: Scott Downey Edit

I am removing it because it's speculation. There is no real connection. For all we know, those characters could be named after the Asst Prof of Ag Econ & Cons Scien/Retail at Purdue. Without any confirmation, it really shouldn't be mentioned even in a BTS section. <-Omicron(Leave a message at the BEEP!) 15:51, August 19, 2011 (UTC)

  • Are you really sure about this? I underatand what you're saying, but think about how absurd it is not even to mention his name briefly in the BTS. First of all, Scott Downey actually worked on the Hoth instance as an artist in SWG. Secondly, both Scott and Downey stand right next to each other in the Hoth instance. Thirdly, no other Scott Downey has been credited for working on SWG, nor does any other famous representation of Scott Downey exist anywhere else. Fourthly, I don't see how it's speculation to say that Scott Downey really did work on the Hoth instance. The BTS segment merely informs players that while Scott Downey did work on Hoth, they shouldn't jump to an absolute conclusion that the two characters were named after him. But still, I see no reason not to include his name in the BTS. At the very least, I would like a second or third opinion, and if they agree with what you're saying, I'll let the issue go. StarsiderSWG 15:54, August 19, 2011 (UTC)
    • I agree with you, Starsider. If you bring this article to the GAN page, you'll probably find that others do too. Menkooroo 15:57, August 19, 2011 (UTC)
      • Thanks, I'm not too knowledgeable on how that works, but I'll probably go ahead and do that. StarsiderSWG 15:59, August 19, 2011 (UTC)

Imperial Oasis Edit

Please note that an objection still remains on your Imperial Oasis GAN, and since it just reached its two-week inactivity period, the nomination is now subject to removal by the AgriCorps. Since the nomination is just one AC vote away from passing, I'd recommend trying to address Tommy's remaining objection as soon as possible. Thank you. CC7567 (talk) 18:37, September 10, 2011 (UTC)

SWG question Edit

Hi Starsider, I'm Hunter Kahn. I saw on the talk page for SWG that you were in the process of gathering as much SWG-related info as possible before the servers shut down, and that you've already taken a lot of screenshots. I was wondering, do you have any screenshots from the missions assigned by Zekka Thyne (Bothan)? And if so, do you think you could send them to me at hunterkhn at gmail dot com? I did the FA for Zekka Thyne and would like to write the Bothan-version article up to CA or GA, but I don't have SWG so I don't have the specifics on him. (I've sent this same inquiry to Darth Morrt.) Let me know if it's not too much trouble. Thanks! — Hunter Kahn 20:52, September 11, 2011 (UTC)

  • Thanks! I much appreciate it. — Hunter Kahn 21:03, September 11, 2011 (UTC)
    • Incidentally, I have a question for you, since you seem to know your SWG. I understand the servers will be shutting down for good at the end of this year. What does this mean for Wookieepedia's coverage of SWG? Is there any kind of concentrated effort going on here at the Wook to try to obtain as much of the information from SWG as possible before the servers go down? — Hunter Kahn 15:00, September 13, 2011 (UTC)
      • No problem, take your time. As for the SWG stuff, I'm glad to hear something is being done to try to preserve as much of that info as possible before it shuts down. I don't have SWG anymore (I used to, WAY back in the day, but I don't even have a PC now, only Mac) so I don't think I can help much but if there's anything I can do, please don't hesitate to let me know. — Hunter Kahn 19:01, September 13, 2011 (UTC)

Imperial Oasis Edit

Imperial Oasis has been approved by the AgriCorps and awarded Good status. Feel free to add the {{User GA}} template to your userpage to acknowledge your hard work. The AgriCorps thanks you for your efforts, and looks forward to future nominations from you! — Kilson(Let's have a chat) 01:34, September 12, 2011 (UTC)

Good work! Edit

  • Good work on your first good article! I hope to see more great SWG articles from you. OLIOSTER (talk) 14:03, September 12, 2011 (UTC)

Hey!Edit

Hey Starsider, I wanted to thank you again for your help with the Imperial bioweapons Project I71A article so far, but I have a few more questions before I can finish up. I remember you mentioning something about taking several screenshots of dialogue on Dathomir.... do you maybe have a link to those screenshots so I could view them and get some dialogue? Thanks! Darth Trayus(Trayus Academy) 08:10, September 29, 2011 (UTC)

SWG Edit

Hello, Starsider. I see you've recently added Star Wars Galaxies to the Tarrin Datch page's Appearances list. May I ask in what manner the character appears in this game for article updating purposes? Thank you. Toprawa and Ralltiir 17:46, October 25, 2011 (UTC)

  • Hey. While you're at it could you please let me know what Keyan Farlander, Iran Ryad and Maarek Stele do in the game. Thanks. Green Tentacle (Talk) 17:57, October 25, 2011 (UTC)
    • Hello. I would ask the same question with Chiraneau. Thanks. Hanzo Hasashi 23:11, October 25, 2011 (UTC)
      • And can I ask the same for DS-181-4 please :). Cheers, grunny@wookieepedia:~$ 02:04, October 26, 2011 (UTC)
        • Hi all! In case you're not reading this, I'll post on your respective pages later. But to put it briefly, all these characters now have appearances in SWG as "elite pilots" that players can defeat. Essentially a player talks to a space station, and can attack Rebel or Imperial starships depending on their faction. Eventually, a random elite pilot comes in to attack the player. If the player is Rebel, this could be anyone like Darth Vader, Mara Jade, or DS-181-4. When the player defeats the elite pilot, they don't die. They apparently just tell the player they've been defeated, and they hyper out of the system. Then the player gets a badge. Unfortunately, details are somewhat sketchy, as this is new content, and there is less than 2 months left on SWG's lifespan. So I'm trying to get screenshots of the pilots in SWG, but I'm not that good at the space portion. StarsiderSWG 15:07, October 26, 2011 (UTC)
          • Thanks for the info. Hanzo Hasashi 19:17, October 26, 2011 (UTC)
          • There's also the chance for (at least some of) them to appear during the Nebulon-B vs Lancer frigate battles that occur every couple of hours in many starsystems. I've seen Celchu, Datch, Cracken and Vader I think. It's possible to stay away far enough to avoid being attacked, then target and /examine them to take a screenshot of their starfighters. But they are way too fast for me to take any decent screenshot of them outside of the /examine window. --Craven 13:48, October 31, 2011 (UTC)
            • Thanks for the info Craven. But I must wonder, is it only the ship that appears, or can you actually see the pilot? In space, when you attack spaceships, a comm window will pop up occasionally, basically just to egg on the player in combat. I wonder if these elite pilots do the same, because if so, it would allow us to post profile images for characters who do not yet have any. StarsiderSWG 17:47, October 31, 2011 (UTC)
              • Oh, never thought of that. I've only seen those pilots in the capital ship battles and I can't shoot them down in my slow Rihkxyrk. They are way too fast and I doubt I could defeat Tier 8 or 9 fighters during the duty missions. :/ --Craven 20:42, October 31, 2011 (UTC)

SWG updates Edit

Hey Starsider, three GAs were spared from being put on probation at meeting forty today because you said you'd be able to provide the information needed to update them. If you could make sure to do this before the next meeting rolls around (it hasn't been scheduled yet, but it'll probably be about a month from now) it would be much appreciated. Thanks! Jonjedigrandmaster (Talk) 20:52, November 5, 2011 (UTC)

  • Certainly, feel free. :) Cheers, Jonjedigrandmaster (Talk) 05:11, November 6, 2011 (UTC)
    • Hey Starsider, I saw the edit you made to DS-181-4. Do you consider the update complete, and the article itself no longer needing an update tag? If so, then that tag can be removed, and one of them is now completely spared. :) Hanzo Hasashi 19:39, November 6, 2011 (UTC)

Arven Wendik Edit

Hi Starsider, I notice you edited Arven Wendik so that it no longer said he was cut from Galaxies, does that mean he is still in the game, but his quests aren't? If so, can he still interact with the player? Hanzo Hasashi 01:55, December 8, 2011 (UTC)

  • Alright, I figured he could be seen, but at best he could only say some casual scripted dialogue to the player. By the way, whenever you have the time, just another reminder about the Galaxies FA's from the above message I gave you, and also 4-LOM. Can you also check my edit to Vindoo Barvel to see if he can now be considered up to date? I hope that the Galaxies appearances won't strip any of these aforementioned articles' status. Hanzo Hasashi 02:14, December 9, 2011 (UTC)

SWGTCG loading screens Edit

Hey there, StarsiderSWG. I wonder if I could request a favor for you before SWG shuts down for good. There are many SWG loading screens, using high-res TCG artwork not obtainable otherwise, located within game files. Those are located within the sku0_client.toc file, under path: /texture/loading/large and can be extracted with TRE explorer as .DDS files. Could you please extract and upload them in archive to some file-sharing website (such as Rapidshare, Megaupload, Sendspace or any other) and provide me with a link to it via either direct message or an e-mail? I would hate to see those beautiful images gone forever once the game becomes inaccessible. Thank you. --LOST-Malachi 20:50, December 11, 2011 (UTC)

  • It's not just the TRE file alone. I tried to extract files when the file was in a separate folder and was getting an error too - only when it was in the game folder itself did it work successfully. Apparently it only provides the pathing for the files, which are actually located in the different TOC files with each regular patch itself. I've successfully extracted them for some time, but could do so no longer after September 15th - when no new trial submissions were accepted and my client stopped updating. Maybe what you could do is actually send me all files modified since that date so I could bring my client up to date and extract them myself, then share them with you. I don't know if the size of the updates will even fit on filesharing services though... --LOST-Malachi 16:35, December 11, 2014 (UTC)
    • That was totally as expected: there is a free DDS converter that converts those files into images of just about every possible file type and quality. Also, thank you very much - I was rejoiced at your success! --LOST-Malachi 21:13, December 15, 2011 (UTC)
      • Hey again, hope you're not too busy with other SWG requests! You had any luck with DDS converter? If no, you could just send archived .dds files to me via e-mail or any filesharing service - I could take it from there =) --LOST-Malachi 17:53, December 18, 2011 (UTC)
        • Many thanks to you! Much appreciated =) --LOST-Malachi 03:35, December 21, 2011 (UTC)

In response to your SH thread: me and JMAS have been searching all kind of sources for SWGTCG artwork and through artists's websites, official LFL releases and files extracted from SWG itself managed to gather about 700 of them - out of 2000 different artworks total (which you can get here and here). For the rest, there aren't many options left: use incomplete crops of the cards themselves, wait for LFL to release an artwork book or bombard the artists with subtle pleads to post some more of their art (which I also have been doing). Of course the most straightforward way would be to extract them from the original file as well, but the TCG used a different file system than SWG - it is some kind of C++ resource file, for which I have been unable to find a working extractor on the web. --LOST-Malachi (talk) 08:24, July 7, 2012 (UTC)

    • I actually had an acquaintance programmer of mine write an extractor for this type of files some years ago, completely from scratch. However, while it did extract the files of correct type with names corresponding to that of the cards, none of them could be opened by any program. His guess was that Sony used some kind of either compression or encryption, that messed with his simple unpacking algorithm. I still haven't given up on that completely though, you never know when a surprise will come along. --LOST-Malachi (talk) 16:20, July 7, 2012 (UTC)

Executor Edit

Hello, Starsider. Can I ask in what manner the Executor appears in the Galaxies loading screen? Thanks. Toprawa and Ralltiir 20:06, January 13, 2012 (UTC)

  • As a follow-up question, can I ask about what timeline point that loading screen, or the level it's associated with, appears in? Toprawa and Ralltiir 20:12, January 13, 2012 (UTC)
    • If you feel like getting a shot of that screen, feel free, but I think I should have enough to go on based on your explanation. Many thanks. Toprawa and Ralltiir 00:52, January 14, 2012 (UTC)

Galaxies FA's Edit

Hello Starsider, just to let you know, there are still several Galaxies FA's that have yet to receive updates. Those are: Maarek Stele (same info as every other Imperial pilot?), Keyan Farlander, Tarrin Datch (true you got the image and (uncited) hair color, but what about information?) and 4-LOM. Hopefully some update can be done, it would be a shame for them to have fallen out of date, even with info with canonicity level ambiguous at best. Hanzo Hasashi 23:09, January 25, 2012 (UTC)

Romas Navander Edit

Hey again, Starsider. I saw you recently also added Galaxies to the Romas Navander article's Appearances list. May I ask in what capacity the character appears in the game? Toprawa and Ralltiir 23:37, February 6, 2012 (UTC)

  • Sure, I'd like to see that picture. Do you remember if he says anything else besides that line, or if there's anything else regarding this that needs to be updated in the article? Toprawa and Ralltiir 00:05, February 9, 2012 (UTC)
    • Thank you for uploading that. One last question, I think. Should his little comm window be considered as appearing on the player's communication device during the battle or anything like that? Or it strictly a game-mechanics type of thing? Toprawa and Ralltiir 23:28, February 9, 2012 (UTC)

Old Death Trooper stuff Edit

Hey Starsider! Hope all is going well. I wanted to contact you regarding that information from SWG's Death Trooper content. I noticed that way back in November you said that you had a word document with all of the info on it, and I was wondering if you still had it. Let me know if you do, and I'll email you so you can respond with an attachment. Many thanks. Darth Trayus(Trayus Academy) 10:21, February 16, 2012 (UTC)

  • Hey, I would love to email you, but the email user function on your userpage isn't visible. Feel free to email me directly using the function under the toolbox section of the sidebar when you're on my userpage! :) Darth Trayus(Trayus Academy) 05:53, February 17, 2012 (UTC)
    • Hey Starstrider—congrats on WotM! I just wanted to let you know that I'm ready for the next file of SWG Death Troopers stuff when you have it ready for me. Thanks! Darth Trayus(Trayus Academy) 23:59, March 2, 2012 (UTC)
      • Hey just checking in with you on this. Let me know if you're ready to send the next document. Thanks! Darth Trayus(Trayus Academy) 06:27, March 24, 2012 (UTC)

Congratulations! Edit

Starsider! Congratulations on being voted March's Wookieepedian of the Month. You definitely deserved it. I'm wondering if I can give you a short interview for the Wookieepedia NewsNet. If you're not familiar with the NewsNet, it's a feature on the main page that we're trying to revive; if you look halfway down Wookieepedia's main page on the right side, you'll see it.

The most recent post on the NewsNet is an interview with last month's WOTM winner. The questions I'd ask you would be very similar to what's in there. If it's OK, let me know! I can ask you the questions via e-mail, or here on your talk page if you'd prefer. If it's OK, e-mail me at gradualferguson@hotmail.com, or just post here on your talk page. Congratulations again! Menkooroo 01:30, March 3, 2012 (UTC)

  • Thanks for the e-mails! Your interview has gone live. Check it out on Wookieepedia's front page. :) Menkooroo 22:42, March 7, 2012 (UTC)

Pash Cracken Edit

Hey, Starsider. I'm wondering if I can ask you a favour --- is there any way you can give me details on Pash Cracken's appearance in Galaxies? Thanks. :) Menkooroo 03:17, March 22, 2012 (UTC)

  • Thanks for letting me know! Much appreciated. I also found this article on the SWG wiki. Do you know if there's a picture of Pash in the game? Menkooroo 23:41, March 22, 2012 (UTC)
    • Amazing. Thanks so much. :) Menkooroo 04:41, March 23, 2012 (UTC)
      • Hi there! I think I've saved you the trouble of updating his bio. Take a look at what I have here (in the "Gamemechanics" template). Does that look about right? Let me know if it's OK, and don't worry about updating his bio. :) But if you could get me that image, I'd be very, very grateful. Thanks. :D Menkooroo 03:13, March 24, 2012 (UTC)
        • That picture is amazing! Red hair and everything. Thanks so much. :D You are awesome. Menkooroo 02:31, March 25, 2012 (UTC)

Sliv Jurek Edit

Hello, I was wondering if you could answer a few questions about the Sliv Jurek article that I have been working on.

  • Since he was taken out of the game with the NGE, I never actually saw him in the game, did you play Jabba's Theme Park before the NGA?
    • If so, do you happen to know if he had a set appearance, and if he does do you have a picture?
    • Also, if you would just give the article a little bit of a review to see if I missed anything?

Thank you for your time.--Exiled Jedi Oldrepublic crest (Greetings) 16:21, March 25, 2012 (UTC)

  • Yes, any anyformation you have would be appreciated. Thank you.--Exiled Jedi Oldrepublic crest (Greetings) 17:16, April 24, 2012 (UTC)

Dear fellow SWG lover.... Edit

Some time ago I did some work on Battle of Mos Espa in an effort to bring it to the GAN but ceased for a while. I believe at current its pretty close to being finished but I was wondering if you could look it over whenever you have time and make sure there isn't any information I'm missing. Thanks! Gal-icon OLIOSTER (talk) 17:58, March 25, 2012 (UTC)

  • Never did thank you for going over the article. Thanks! I was wondering if you had any applicable quotes for it, maybe from Kav Goldor. Gal-icon OLIOSTER (talk) 23:56, June 16, 2012 (UTC)
    • Not sure what you mean. Just looking for a quote to put at the top of the article. Gal-icon OLIOSTER (talk) 00:32, June 17, 2012 (UTC)
      • Ah yes. Completely forgot about that. Gal-icon OLIOSTER (talk) 00:36, June 17, 2012 (UTC)
        • Were you able to come up with any quotes? Gal-icon OLIOSTER (talk) 21:14, July 1, 2012 (UTC)
          • Much appreciated. Gal-icon OLIOSTER (talk) 16:20, July 6, 2012 (UTC)
            • Great work filling in the finer details. Very much appreciated! Gal-icon OLIOSTER (talk) 22:52, July 6, 2012 (UTC)
              • Neither did I. I got a brief run down of it from Malachi. Gal-icon OLIOSTER (talk) 16:09, July 7, 2012 (UTC)
                • Considering all the additional work you put into, I think you should sign your name on its nomination along with mine, if you want. Gal-icon OLIOSTER (talk) 17:31, July 7, 2012 (UTC)
                  • I'd say you put as much effort into it as I did, maybe even more, so only fair we should share it :). Gal-icon OLIOSTER (talk) 21:24, July 7, 2012 (UTC)

Picture? Edit

Hey Starsider,

Is there any chance I could trouble you for a picture of Turr Phennir from Galaxies? He's one of the Imperials in the Ace Pilot system. If not, no worries. Menkooroo 05:03, May 10, 2012 (UTC)

  • Thanks so much! No worries about the delay; it was only a few days anyway! :) Menkooroo 19:18, May 15, 2012 (UTC)

Grondorn Muse Edit

Hello Starsider, can you look through Grondorn Muse, and separate the game mechanics from what's canon no matter what? I'm fairly certain the spacer even interacting with him and doing his task is mechanics, but everything before that is canon. Also, if it's missing any info, can you add it in? Thanks. Hanzo Hasashi 04:00, May 15, 2012 (UTC)

  • May I also request some quotes for Grondorn's bio and personality and traits? It's obvious that he says more things in that game. Also, Menkooroo was wondering why quest was given a link in the BTS. As always, thanks in advance. Hanzo Hasashi 20:27, May 15, 2012 (UTC)
    • Yep, that quest link indeed works now. Before it was redirecting to some Quest Wikia. Hanzo Hasashi 22:38, May 15, 2012 (UTC)

Palejo Reshad Edit

Hello Starsider, whenever you get the time, can you perhaps update the Galaxies information relevant to Palejo Reshad? I saw him on the Galaxies wiki, but that's relying on secondhand info, and also I'm sure there are more in-game quotes than what's shown on there. Thanks. Hanzo Hasashi 14:58, May 19, 2012 (UTC)

  • Also, could you also perhaps give a more thorough writeup of TK-577? I'm assuming the player even accepting the mission and killing him and the others is optional. Thanks in advance, and I've appreciated all the things you've done in regards to Galaxies articles. Hanzo Hasashi 17:39, May 20, 2012 (UTC)
    • Good job on both. A couple more things: perhaps an article for the blackmailer whom the spacer can choose to kill? Also, any Galaxies info relevant to Reshad's personality and traits you can add? Perhaps that can also include another quote; on the Galaxies wiki, it appears he says he will be sure to look the spacer up if he ever needs anything done again. In advance, thanks for all your effort. Hanzo Hasashi 04:01, May 21, 2012 (UTC)
      • I have one more thing to ask about TK-577: Does he also wield an E-ll as one of the most wanted fugitives in Galaxies, or some other weapon? Thanks in advance. Hanzo Hasashi 17:57, May 22, 2012 (UTC)
        • Thanks for your help. The sooner Wikia's refusal to autosuggest article links is fixed, the sooner I will have the incentive to finish my work on TK-577. Hanzo Hasashi 23:47, May 22, 2012 (UTC)

Hume TarlEdit

If you have the time, could you see if the galaxies related info on Hume Tarl is complete? I was going to nominate him someday. Thanks, 501st dogma(talk) 14:56, May 21, 2012 (UTC)

SWG Characters Edit

Hey StarsiderSWG. If you need any help with ideas for SWG-related articles to create, I discovered a few of them present in the SWG wiki but not here. I'd do them myself, but I don't have Galaxies.

Here are the articles: c:SWG:Cas Vankoo, c:SWG:Grenz Zittoun, c:SWG:LC-92 Antagonist Droid, c:SWG:Lt. Jarad Gastin, c:SWG:Luthin, c:SWG:Macchbraus, c:SWG:Mako Ghast, c:SWG:Rek Thelcar, c:SWG:SWL-5 Overseer Droid, c:SWG:Stuvany Inglen, c:SWG:ZH-28 Droid, Dakar.

Whisper (Bith) Edit

I noticed you moved Whisper to Whisper (perfume) and then copied and pasted the contents of Whisper (Bith) into the Whisper page. Since this isn't the correct way of moving a page, I restored the Whisper (Bith) article and tagged Whisper for deletion so it could be moved properly. However, you've switched the CSD tag on the pages, so I was wondering which title you want the Bith's page at, Whisper (Bith) or Whisper? -- I need a name (Complain here) 19:54, June 7, 2012 (UTC)

  • Alright, I changed Whisper into a disambig page. If you know any whisper articles I didn't list there, feel free to add them. -- I need a name (Complain here) 20:02, June 7, 2012 (UTC)

Death Troopers Edit

Hey Starsider. I just wanted to check in about that Death Troopers information from a while back. I got the first document you sent, but never anything after that. Thanks, and I hope all is well. Darth Trayus(Trayus Academy) 21:34, June 20, 2012 (UTC)

  • I hardly ever log onto that email, but I got it. Thanks a million, it's beautifully organized. Darth Trayus(Trayus Academy) 22:35, August 16, 2012 (UTC)

Trey Callum Edit

Hello Starsider, I saw that Trey Callum apparently appears in Galaxies, through a comm window. I'm assuming this is the Battle of Hoth, and there's no new info, correct? Hanzo Hasashi 23:00, June 20, 2012 (UTC)

  • Oh and one more FA: I saw that Kendal Ozzel is mentioned in that game. Any relevant info that is missing from his bio? Hanzo Hasashi 23:03, June 20, 2012 (UTC)
    • Cool. I was 99.99% certain that Trey Callum's info was already complete, but I had no idea about Ozzel. Hanzo Hasashi 23:09, June 20, 2012 (UTC)

Flag of Dathomir Edit

Hello, StarsiderSWG! I was curious about something. You've added this flag of Dathomir on the planet's article recently, and I wondered in what kind of context it appeared in the game. After all, Dathomir has no central government, so it seems a little odd there would be a flag for the whole world. Regards. --LelalMekha (talk) 16:34, July 9, 2012 (UTC)

SWG and the Sanyassans Edit

Hello StarsiderSWG. You may know I'm currently working on the Sanyassan article, in hopes of turning it into a FA in the near future. I was wondering if you could help me find answers to a few questions regarding the Sanyassans featured in SW Galaxies. Regards. --LelalMekha (talk) 22:04, July 12, 2012 (UTC)

  • Well, here are a few questions:
  1. In the Sanyassan article in its current form, I wrote: "The species had two sexes: male and female. Sexual dimorphism manifested predominantly in the presence of pronounced breasts in females. Sanyassan women also tended to have smoother skin and did not grow facial hair." In fact, it's only an educated guess, as I have only seen one picture labelled as a female Marauder on the SWG wiki. Is my statement actually accurate? Also, was Indar female? Because she sure looks a lot like the "female Marauder" from the picture.
  2. Could you help me know what were the various "types" of Sanyassans that appeared in Galaxies? I imagine most of those types will only be game mechanics ("feral Marauder" for example), but some may be useful to understand how their society works.

That's all I can think of for now. --LelalMekha (talk) 22:16, July 12, 2012 (UTC)

  • I do know what you mean about the randomly generated characters, and that makes a lot of sense, I guess. If you just take a look at the webpage[1] of Jason Temujin Minor, who was Character Lead and eventually Art Director of Galaxies, you can see pretty clearly that he intended the "smooth-skin" models to be female—you can see they have breasts. --LelalMekha (talk) 23:45, July 12, 2012 (UTC)
    • Thanks for what you've already found out. For now, I think I'll go to bed—it's 2:00 AM here—but I'll be thinking about that in the coming days. --LelalMekha (talk) 23:53, July 12, 2012 (UTC)

SWG: Quarantine ZoneEdit

Hello, do you have any information about Dathomir outbreak and Quarantine Zone?МихаилОбсуждение 14:53, July 20, 2012 (UTC)

  • Hi. I was away for a while, but I'll look for more things on the Quarantine Zone. StarsiderSWG (talk) 17:44, July 26, 2012 (UTC)

Imperial pilots in Galaxies Edit

Hello Starsider, I remember the time when you helped update the various Imperial pilots in Galaxies, and I notice that articles such as DS-181-4 and Turr Phennir had text that they "Fought in the Corellian, Dantooine, Karthakk, Naboo, and Tatoo systems," which had them "support an Imperial Lancer-class frigate as it squared off against a Rebel EF76 Nebulon-B escort frigate." I have noticed that articles such as Chiraneau and Vindoo Barvel don't have this info. Can those characters also be found participating in those battles? Thanks. Hanzo Hasashi (talk) 01:02, August 3, 2012 (UTC)

Goru Rainstealer's species Edit

I just have a quick question about your recent change to the Goru Rainstealer article. Before his appearance was set to being Human at all times, was Rainstealer always a Bith, or could he have been any species? This is what you implied in the article with your change, and I wanted to make sure that the article was accurate. Thank you for your time.--Exiled Jedi Oldrepublic crest (Greetings) 00:08, August 28, 2012 (UTC)

  • All right, sounds fine to me, I just tweaked the sentence slightly for clarity, thanks for your help.--Exiled Jedi Oldrepublic crest (Greetings) 00:42, August 28, 2012 (UTC)

Dragon's Spine asteroid field Edit

Dragon'sSpine

Hello! I just created an article about the asteroid belt shown around Tatooine. As you can read, this asteroid field is something of an oddity, as it only appeared in two video games. I see there already exists an article about the "Dragon's Spine asteroid field", which appeared in Star Wars Galaxies. Do you know whether the planet featured on the picture is Tatooine? Thanks in advance. --LelalMekha (talk) 20:58, September 10, 2012 (UTC)

  • Then it seems highly unlikely there are TWO asteroid fields around Tatooine. I suggest a merge between Dragon's Spine and Tatooine asteroid field. --LelalMekha (talk) 09:10, September 11, 2012 (UTC)
    • More than one asteroid belt around the same planet, that would be quite unorthodox, if that is even possible. I've put a merger tag on the Tatooine asteroid field article, and if no one reacts within a few days, I shall proceed with the merging. --LelalMekha (talk) 22:22, September 11, 2012 (UTC)
      • As a matter of fact, while the depiction of an asteroid field around the planet of sand remains marginal, it is present in three sources (Rebel Assault, Star Wars Math and Galaxies). Three sources, not just one, so it's probably more than a mere anomaly. Two's company, three's a crowd, if I dare say. --LelalMekha (talk) 22:34, September 11, 2012 (UTC)

Thanks! Edit

Hey Starsider,

Thanks for adding the Galaxies appearance to Mermeia! Would you happen to know the nature of her (Voice only) appearance? Menkooroo (talk) 23:08, September 18, 2012 (UTC)

  • I was wondering the same thing. I've taken interest in the article since I replaced the images of Mermeia with clearer versions. --LelalMekha (talk) 23:17, September 18, 2012 (UTC)
  • Thanks so much! Yeah, definitely sounds like her. I'll give the article an update. Menkooroo (talk) 02:01, September 19, 2012 (UTC)

M'Kae Edit

Hello Starsider, would you be able to expand the Star Wars Galaxies info for M'Kae? He is a potential future project of mine. Hanzo Hasashi (talk) 21:48, November 14, 2012 (UTC)

  • Thanks. Hanzo Hasashi (talk) 00:46, November 15, 2012 (UTC)
    • Thanks for updating M'kae. Just a question: does that game call him M'Kae, or M'kae? I believe the article should be moved to M'Kae, as I see both the CCG and The Complete Star Wars Encyclopedia call him by that name. If I find no source actually calls him "M'kae," I will move the article. Hanzo Hasashi (talk) 18:34, November 17, 2012 (UTC)
      • Alright, so there is indeed some source calling him "M'kae." So it's an extinct questline, did that mean it never appeared in the final version of the game before Galaxies went offline? Hanzo Hasashi (talk) 22:41, November 17, 2012 (UTC)
        • That makes sense. It's cool that the programmers developed that feature of Restuss being destroyed, and removing the NPC characters from the game. Hanzo Hasashi (talk) 23:55, November 17, 2012 (UTC)
          • One more question: does M'Kae have any quotes in that game? If so, I think the article benefits from having them somewhere. Thanks in advance like always. Hanzo Hasashi (talk) 01:37, November 19, 2012 (UTC)

Tzarina Edit

Hello StarsiderSWG! I wanted to know if you had any more information on the Tzarina, a Star Tours liner that crashed on Dathomir in Star Wars Galaxies. Anything new, such as NPC dialogue explaining the circumstances of the crash would be most welcome. Cheers. --LelalMekha (talk) 20:31, January 10, 2013 (UTC)

  • Thanks a lot, Starsider. Peradventure, do you know whether the Tzarina was intended to be Corellian corvette in the game? Because it sure looks like it—and was probably based on the same CGI model. --LelalMekha (talk) 23:59, January 28, 2013 (UTC)
    • Thank you again. It's a shame there was nothing more precise about the ship's identification, though. The infobox looks woefully empty. --LelalMekha (talk) 00:09, January 29, 2013 (UTC)

Your GAN Edit

Hello Starsider, just saw that for a while you have not actively responded to objections on your Radanthus Mandelatara GAN, and about a week ago I actually answered objections for you to prevent the nom from failing. Just wanted to give a heads up about some recent objections posted to the nom. Thanks. Hanzo Hasashi (talk) 01:48, January 18, 2013 (UTC)

Collection question Edit

  • I'm curious if you ever completed the collection to obtain Bondara's Folly because I'm unsure about how exactly claiming your reward for it was handled. Gal-icon OLIOSTER (talk) 22:22, April 11, 2013 (UTC)
    • I know the steps to getting it but I'm wondering specifically you were given the item. Did a quest prompt come up telling you to pick a reward or did you go to an NPC?

Ancient ruins on Rori Edit

Hello StarsiderSWG. I wondered if I could, once again, benefit from your Galaxies knowledge. When I started working on the Naboo Elders' articles, it was already written, although unsourced, that ruins similar to the Gungan sacred place could be found on Rori. I though perhaps you can confirm/invalidate this? Thanks in advance. --LelalMekha (talk) 15:41, April 22, 2013 (UTC)

  • I'm not sure if I'll have enough space to use them, but I'd still like to seem 'em, yes. :) If you don't mind, of course. --LelalMekha (talk) 19:55, April 22, 2013 (UTC)
  • Oh, and another thing... Completely different thing. While I don't wish to take too much of your time, I'd be very interested in anything you can grasp about General Otto, who used to man the Imperial outpost on Lok. In particular, actual quotes would be most welcome. You see, I'd like to expand the article on that poor, delusional guy. ;) --LelalMekha (talk) 20:33, April 24, 2013 (UTC)

M'Kae quotes Edit

Hello Starsider, as you said you have more quotes for M'Kae from Galaxies that just needed to be sorted, do you have anything new beyond what is already on my talk page? I'd like to see if any other quotes would reveal things about his personality for the P & T section, and after having all the quotes would like to see what to put in that said section. Hanzo Hasashi (talk) 04:27, May 20, 2013 (UTC)

  • Wow that's very interesting stuff. Once you get all the stuff, would you mind writing the Galaxies part of his bts too, possibly also other IU Galaxies stuff? If not, then when I have the stuff I can do it myself. Thanks a ton by the way. Hanzo Hasashi (talk) 21:16, May 20, 2013 (UTC)

Naboo emblem in SWG Edit

Hello StarsiderSWG. Since you seem good at extracting dds texture files in Star Wars Galaxies, I wanted to ask you something. I know that the Naboo emblem appeared in the game. You can see it on the central banner hanging on the facade of the Theed Royal Palace. If it's possible, could you extract the texture of that banner? Thanks in advance. --LelalMekha (talk) 16:35, May 28, 2013 (UTC)

  • Thank you my friend. The image is small, indeed, but I'll see what I can do with it. ;-) Actually, I'm surprised that the extracted files are so small, but I don't know the first thing about such technicalities, so I guess there must be a reason. ^^ --LelalMekha (talk) 22:12, May 28, 2013 (UTC)

Blackmailer Edit

Hello Starsider, I have a couple of questions about the Unidentified blackmailer. For one, are we able to identify his blaster pistol, and are his clothes always that same jumpsuit shown in that picture of him as a female, regardless of his appearance? Also, are you able to confirm that he and Palejo Reshad are not mentioned in any of the strategy guides? I know you were able to check those before you renominated Radanthus Mandelatara. As Reshad is a GA, I want to be sure no sources are missing for him. Thanks in advance. Hanzo Hasashi (talk) 16:12, August 2, 2013 (UTC)

  • Just one more thing about M'Kae: does Galaxies depict him wearing an Imperial officer's uniform? I swear I remember seeing an image of him in Galaxies with that uniform on the Internet, but I can't seem to find it. Hanzo Hasashi (talk) 22:39, August 4, 2013 (UTC)
    • Yeah that'll be great. Thanks. Hanzo Hasashi (talk) 01:41, August 18, 2013 (UTC)
      • Yeah, please do post the Rebel version too. And thanks for getting back about Reshad, I think that means the blackmailer should be ready to nom now. Hanzo Hasashi (talk) 02:05, August 18, 2013 (UTC)
        • Thanks for the Rebel part. Wow, I just realized that I should have also asked about M'kae in the strategy guides too. Anything for him? Sorry about that. Hanzo Hasashi (talk) 03:35, August 18, 2013 (UTC)
          • That is true. I intend to just say he was in charge of a mission to search for Cal Handro, and everything afterwards has the gameplay mechanics slapped on, with alternate story in the behind the scenes. Hanzo Hasashi (talk) 15:04, August 18, 2013 (UTC)
            • That image would be great. If you were to upload it, I'll add it into the article if I see fit. Hanzo Hasashi (talk) 16:37, August 18, 2013 (UTC)

A rather large request Edit

Hey Starsider! I've noticed you have some experience with diving into the SWG archive files and I was wondering if you could find any dialogue files relating to the Old Man. Specifically the dialogue he would say to the play when conversed with during the Force sensitive process. I plan to bring him to status at some point and this information would be invaluable if you can provide it. Thanks! Gal-icon OLIOSTER (talk) 22:49, August 13, 2013 (UTC)

♪I've come to talk with you again.♫

Specifically, I would like to know in what terms the Galactic Phrase Book & Travel Guide was mentioned. Could you please try and find it whenever you have a minute?

SW Galaxies request Edit

Hey, Starsider; I'm working through some old WEG RPG stuff, and came across Ignar Ominaz. Since he's got a subsequent Galaxies appearance, I was wondering if you could possibly give me any info on the character and what the timeframe for Galaxies is since it would be helpful in (attempting to) nailing down his death date on Caprioril. Thanks in advance. - Sir Cavalier of OneFarStar(Squadron channel) 18:01, August 21, 2013 (UTC)

Yeah, the death date is the major factor I'm trying to establish. I think the pre-0BBY comes from an interpretation of The Star Wars Sourcebook which is set after the Battle of Yavin and refers to his death as having already occurred by that point in time. Really, though, the Star Wars Sourcebook is initially set between Yavin and Hoth, giving a 3 year time frame for the events. - Sir Cavalier of OneFarStar(Squadron channel) 07:42, August 22, 2013 (UTC)
Well, that's the plan once I get the info. And if Serji-X Arrogantus is present at the same time Ignar is in Galaxies, and we know his death date, then establishing a "death window" for Ominaz hopefully won't be too hard. - Sir Cavalier of OneFarStar(Squadron channel) 09:49, August 23, 2013 (UTC)
The info is much appreciated! Thanks again. I'll rework the article soon. - Sir Cavalier of OneFarStar(Squadron channel) 10:57, August 24, 2013 (UTC)

M'kae picture Edit

Thanks for the picture. This confirms the appearance I thought I remembered. Good job noticing the green eyes. Personally, I think the very easy IU explanation for every character whose eye colors are inconsistent is that they are wearing lenses for one of the occasions, with the other being the true color. Nonetheless, I'll make a note of that. Hanzo Hasashi (talk) 03:06, August 26, 2013 (UTC)

Wohe Omosp‎ Edit

I've declined the CSD tag in the article since it was TC'd back in 2006 and the consensus was keep. You can always start a new TC to delete the article (I agree with what you said in the tag since I am familiar with Galaxies as well.) JangFett (Talk) 11:10, September 10, 2013 (UTC)

Kinetic Armor Edit

I have a good quality artwork of Kinetic armor from the SWGTCG card, but I know nothing about the subject matter. I looked at two articles on the SWG Wiki, but they tell me nothing. Here and here. As our resident SWG expert, can you create an article for this type of armor? Then let me know and I'll put in the image. - JMAS Jolly Trooper Hey, it's me! 03:59, September 12, 2013 (UTC)-

Galaxies again: Kylantha and Narmle Edit

Hello! I'm sorry to trouble you with Galaxies again, but you seem to be the last expert in that field. ;-) I wished to know whether you could find anything in the game dialogues relating to King Narmlé—whose name was spelled "Narmle" back then—and about the date of Kylantha's coronation. Everywhere on the Wook, you can find that Kylantha became queen in 6 BBY, but I'm having trouble finding an actual source for that. Perhaps it comes from the in-game dialogues? Thanks in advance. --LelalMekha (talk) 11:46, February 8, 2014 (UTC)

  • Thanks in advance for the help you promised. As far as the Narmle/Narmlé issue is concerned, I discussed the matter with Tim Veekhoven, and it seemed that it was he who originally spelled the king's name with -é rather than -e in the Maxiron Agolerga databank entry—because he saw a similarity with other Nabooian names such as Padmé, Saché, Reyé and so on. --Lelal Mekha Old Republic military symbol (Audience Room) 01:08, February 13, 2014 (UTC)

Chertyl Ruluwoor date Edit

Hello Starsider, just wanted to ask if the events for the Chertyl Ruluwoor mission can actually be confirmed as 1 ABY, or if it's just one of those vague times between Yavin and Hoth. I would be personally leaning towards the latter, but maybe it really is established as 1 ABY by the game. Thanks. Hanzo Hasashi (talk) 02:54, February 14, 2014 (UTC)
