Yeah that's strange. Slave Is getting more powerful as more as i read of it. I always thought it would be a small and fast, but not heavy armed ship, like seen in the Empire Strikes Back, but now it has multiple blasters, tons of bombs, missiles, torpedos (hmm, sounds like Hudson in Aliens :D )

Guess Boba should rename it into Master I or so...

I read somewhere that George Lucas said that Boba Fett died in the original trilogy. Him surviving is Expanded Universe, not original StarWars.

Maybe Lucas changes this for the Special Edition like he did with Han Solo not shooting first at this Rodian guy...

It always had this array of weapons. There are two retractable turbo-laser cannons in the "wings" of Slave I. There weren't that close to the ship's hull, though.

Hey, look what Mister Organa-Solo (I am still laughing) did to an old YT-1300 freighter!

Now imagine what the clone of a skilled bounty hunter can do with a Mandalorian police ship within 20+ years.

If it isn't in the movies, it is not considered canon.

Boba wasn't in the movies after the Great Pit fight scene.

Thus he is no longer a part of the official Star Wars universe.

I'm sorry Gideon YOU ARE WRONG!!! That is the Star Trek Universe where the books are not canon, however Lucas being who he is wants people to read therefore he has stated that the Star Wars books ARE canon. SO :p think about what you say next time in front of other people.


Slave I was impounded after his presumed death so Boba got Slave II (and if you've ever played XWA Slave II is the Pursuer Class) After Boba got Slave II he went looking for Slave I and eventually gets it back.:fett:

In case you missed it: that was exactly my point. :)

Nah, books are not canon, at least not the ones entitled "Expanded Universe (EU)". Hence the title. Lucas maybe says they are ok but there are lots of inconsistencies between EU books and the movies. They are NOT canon.

Actually, I hate to rain on your parade, but Lucas DID state that the books/videogames/etc. are supposed to be cannon but if you want 100% accuracy, then you rely on the movies... I have that quote somewhere... I'll try an dig it up...

Then what about books about Boba's backstory? I guess the movie de-canonises them. And in the SE of ROTJ, Lucas added in the beak on the Sarlac thing just to prove he was dead. I just find the idea of Boba coming back from the dead (out of a pit that can clearly be seen has no escape) lame.

Jaster21801

Yes, I agree that the Boba Fett history is proven false, but it was never said to be fact in the first place. They were all said to be possible histories. And just to be technical, the beak on the sarlacc was in the original design, it just couldn't be done correctly due to time and technology.

There is no official Star Wars universe after RotJ, so what are you talking about?

The EU is a "clouded window" into the Star Wars universe. It's canon until proven otherwise.

Lucas approved everything in the EU. That means it's canon unless he contradicts it in the movies.

oh no, not canon vs eu again

I dont care who says what, it has been generally accepted by the fan community that there are 3 things ruled as Canon for Star wars.

The movies
The books of the movies
Radio Drama's of the movies.

There has been many inconsitancies in the EU universe, mainly due to the fact of Authors taking some freedom.

Well anyways, i'll take like cannon that there are many saber colors, wherever George Likes it or not. :(

And if Slave I is a Mandalorian ship, it has far more years that 20, at least two centuries, since jango is the only mandalorian left.

Is Jango truly a Mandalorian Warrior? Or does he just use their armor? Or is all of this assumption?

Confused, now.

EU is not canon- Lucas himself said they should be looked at as an alternative universe, and he feels free to contradict them whenever he likes- if the books want to try and fit in then thats up to them.

He has nothing against them but THEY ARE NOT CANON.

Duncan Barr
05-28-2002, 11:02 PM
how this for not being canon:

In Vaders Quest the emperor is initially unaware Vader is/was Anakin Skywalker- and Vader is unaware that the emperor finds this out.

Kinda contradicts the PT doesnt it.

Redwing
05-29-2002, 03:40 AM
How many times must this be stated...EU is considered canon unless contradicted by higher canon, which is what K_K listed.

Jango Fett was actually adopted and raised by the Mandalorians. He was also their only survivor.

getting back to the orginal post.

Slave I is Jango's and Boba's original ship but after Boba escaped the sarlac (with Dengar's help) he found his ship about to be stole by another bounty hunter. Bossk the Trandoshan to be exact. So Boba used his skills and drove out Bossk who jettisoned out with an escape pod left his own ship behind.

So Boba, being the kick ass bounty hunter he is took Bossk's ship, named it Slave II, and left his ship behind so it would be impounded thus making everyone think he was really dead. He later got back the Slave I after finishing some buisness.

I have never heard of any other ships beloning to Boba other than Slave I and II.

blah blah blah blah, contradictions contradictions! That's what the EU is!
To those of you who say EU is cannon as long as it doesn't contradict any of the movies... almost all of the EU is contradictory in terms of the time line. For instance, the expanded universe said that the mandolorians were super commandos defeated by the jedi knights during the clone wars, and surprise, we just saw the slave 1 with jango and bobo and did you hear anything about mandolorians??? didnt think so.
Anything you read about boba in the EU is contradictory crap just to get dumba$$es who are obbsesed with characters in the original trilogy (who had little or no lines) to buy their stupid fiction books. I'm sorry guys but Boba died in ROTJ

EU books have the most secluded and stationary plots. They'll make a whole series of books on someone who just "walks by" in the OT.

For instance, they'll be like "we'll make a book on the guy on the top left corner of the screen in SW ANH who you can see for a split second", and then they'll make him battle boba fett, and Luke or han will have a camio that contradicts some other book...
IT's MADDNESS

I would have to say the movies are the final word in the Star Wars universe. The books and comics are just fun reading material. You've seen Lucas contradict his own movies with the others he's made, so why would the books have any more bearing on the story.

From ESB novelization:

Boba Fett. Human Bountyhunter, Fett was famou for his brutal unplacable methods. He was dressed with an armored spacesuit and full of weapons, similar to the one used by evil warriors*, defeated by the Jedi Knights in the Clone Wars.


*Mandalorians?

Well Canon contradicsts canon, worderful, isn't it? :mad:

Mandalorians are humans, just as Corellians (sp?) are.

Btw, to the guy who said that Fett renamed the Hound's Tooth (Bossk's ship), this image (and others I've seen) don't look like the Hound's Tooth. If people want, I can try an dig up one of my pics of the Hound's Tooth. But anyway, I'm pretty sure that Bossk's ship and Slave II are different... And yes I DID read that story about Bossk stealing Slave I, I just can't remember the ending and I probably don't have the book anymore...

I guess the biggest continuity issue between Expanded Universe and the movies is that Boba Fett's "real" name in EU is Jaster something, and Boba has always been Boba in the movies.

Jaster21801

if you wanna be technical, the story of Jaster Mereel was one of many guesses at Fett's background. Lucas has obviously thrown these stories out the window though... I dunno, now I still kinda wanna know about Jango's past...

If you are talking about the EU then Slave 4 exists. in the bounty hunter anthology Boba is flying the slave 4 around. if there is a slave 4 then you can assume that there was a slave 3. :slave:
