He saw that his mother was injured during Balance Point. The Commander was Warmaster Tsavong Lah.

It could also have been when vergere led him into the arms of Nom Anor at the old Jedi Temple in Traitor

TIE fighter units are typically organized into wings -- a grouping of 72 fighters carried aboard a Star Destroyer. These wings are subdivided into six squadrons of 12 fighters each.One of these squadrons is typically made up of TIE interceptors while another consists of TIE bombers. Each squadron consists of three flights of four fighters each. Each flight contains two elements. An element is the smallest tactical unit of starfighters ever deployed, and consists only of a leader and a wingman.

The YT-5100 Shriek-class bomber was a Corellian craft used in the Second Corellian Insurrection. They were shaped like smaller YT-1300 light freighters, but with the side cockpit moved to a location in the center. Their armaments included frontal torpedo tubes, a top-mounted quad laser cannon, and a bottom-mounted bomb/spotter droid drop pod.

They had three engines and were painted black. Their pilots wore green and black suits. As of 40 ABY, only ten late-model prototypes and several earlier models existed. Several of them were organized into Panther Flight for the Battle of Tralus, two of which were piloted by Han Solo and Wedge Antilles.

Definitely Not Revan though. My guess would be Darth Traya, cause the old pag trained Revan.

There most be more, but the old siths and sithlords in the tombs are not really named "Darth" at their times.

But yes Darth comes from Dark, Dark Lord of Sith.

The Sith special in Star Wars Insider/Star Wars Magazine states that Revan and Malak were indeed the first known Darth's; Kreia/Traya trained Revan when she was still a Jedi. It was only after his turn to the dark side that she became corrupted by Malachor 5. So point Davin.

Quote:

Darth Revan and Darth Malak are generally believed to be the first Dark Lords to use the title. Given that much of their power was derived from the Star Forge, a creation of the extinct Rakata species, some historians see "Darth" as a corruption of Daritha, the Rakatan word for "Emperor".
Similarly, others note that the word for "trumph" or "conquest" in Rakatan is darr, and the word for "death" is tah. This has led to theories that "Darth" is derived from darr tah and means "triumph over death" or "immortal". A competing theory asserts that the true meaning of darr tah is "conquest trough death"...of ones enemies.
Numerous other cultures or species can -and do- make similar claims to the etymology of the Darth title. But great are the mysteries of the dark side, and in the end there is no definiteve answer.

He is a Kaleesh, mortal enemy of those giant Praying Mantis in the Swarm Wars.

Name is Sheelal, some famous warlord turned Mercenary turned cyborg(more like sith alchemy + jedi blood + ancient Krath wardroid mod).

Assuming you mean the Millenium Falcon...

A: In LotF, Bloodlines (an awesome read), the Falcon was unable to take any more, and began falling apart on the way to Coruscant. The year was 40 ABY.

Pass if I'm right, don't have any good questions on the mind right now.

PouiyWired, please wait for answer confirmation... Fosh is in fact incorrect about the Falcon question(but correct about the Nightsisters)

therefore, my question is active again.... please note, I said "first destroyed"

You mean I was incorrect about the falcon question...
New Answer:
A: The Falcon was an Imperial Corvette that was destroyed by Keyan Farlander and his wingmate in a time period between RotS and ANH.

I would think it is the Farlander Papers that were part the Tie Fighter Flight Sim's guidebook or thereabouts but Pouiy could confirm it 100%

@Davin... sorry. I am referring to the Milennium Falcon!! Anyway, the book that first describes the Falcon being torn to shreds, is from the Jedi Academy Trilogy, Jedi Search


anyway, current question stays open.

The first city on Bespin was Cloud City. It was overrun by the CIS during the Clone Wars.
Lando Carlissian later won the title Baron Administrator of the city, he won this title by winning Dominic Raynor (who was the Baron of Cloud City at the time if I remember correctly) in a Sabacc tournament.

I think he is referring to that other Bespin city described in the WoTC source...

we'll wait for confirmation on this none. If Pho3nix isnt right I can supply the other answer

Not Bespin city nor Cloud City, and actually predates them by possably quite a bit, being the first city/settlement on planet Bespin and all.

Tip, its close to Bespin City.
