Um...we don't really know what that thing is...you should proabably ask Delphi-PG;he will have the answer for you.

This is a part of the planet Kuat in Star Wars. It is typically for this planet.
You can also see it on this Screen: Kuat

I'd say it was somthing mentioned in the EU so the Dev felt they should proberly add it for the realism aspect of the SW verse'. I't proberly just going to be a bit of seinery which serves no real purpose.

On the other hand it could be apart of the Kuat Drive yards and is a weapons platform of some description.

Knowing that in the fiction that Kuat is a fairly major shipyard it might be some sort of representation of said ship yard. I think there was a translation for that picture somewhere that mentioned it was a raid on a shipyard or something like that.

the game star caption for tht pic says

you need to know your stringths and weaknesses of your units. at least the corelion corvettes can out range the defence satalites

I don't know for sure, but my guess is that it is a shipyard, knowing that Kuat is a major producer of Star Destroyers. However, I wouldn't be surprised if it was a defense system, like Starmark2k said.

it cant be a Ubiquatory base as they are on the Planet itself and Kuat never had one, but as a vivid fan of the EU i cna say hoonestly that KUat has never had a Ring around it the only thing that it has is an ubundance of ShipYards. but the only place that had anything like this is Duro and they are the Orbital Cities.



A True stratergist doesnt need a DS to be successful. A True Thrawn should understand this. the Only Superweapon Thrawn needs is information!

Ubiqtorate Bases are not on the Planet!! They are a ring of Facilities around a Planet

i say its a giant ship yard where they work on star destroyers and other ships

so huge, it circles the planet. cant be a defence platform, because thats what the defence satalites are for

That's the first time I've heard about the Imperial Intelligence having laaaaarge ring bases around planets, Fosh.

You better provide me with some info on this, I haven't found any yet.

If you mean citadel station around Telos as seen in KotORII:TSL. That didn't surround the planet it just covered a section of it.

This is the info I found about this planet.

I'm shure that the ring are the enormous shipyards of the planet.

I don't think it is that, theres a picture of a SD going though the middle of the ring ship yard.

Where im asking about the ring around the planet itself

I think I know what it is. Have any of you ever played Rogue Squadren 3: Rebel Strike? On the first mission with Wedge, you have to go head on against something that looks just like it while defending Rebel Transports. So, I guess it is a defense base.

Hmmm.... did anyone notice the population limit in that screenshot is 25, not 20? My guess is it was either taken earlier before they changed the limit, or its a mission specific pop limit. Or, maybe the rebels can get some sort of space advantage? Hehe I doubt it but it would be cool.

Yeah, i did notice that, but i thought it was something to do with being rebels as the Imprial Fighters Don't cost Pop where as the Rebel fighters do

i was thinking that too. but halo has a planet with in the ring, almost like a reversed surfice, where, when you look up with a telescope, you can see land above you. halo doesnt have a sun does it?

speeking of suns. star wars galaxies has no sun when your in space, makes me wounder if you can see the sun and moons in this game

They never filmed against the sun, because it would make the movies harder to watch.

you are talking about the smaller circular structures? the larger one could possible be as someone has said the shipyards at Kuat and the smaller ones are the golan platforms?

the bigone isnt the shipyard for shure, its way to small!!!! remember: at kuat, all ships for the empire where buildt, th stardestroyers are like 1600m long, the bigones even 8000! this blocaderunners are between 100 and 150 meters long.... now watch the pic! NO FREAKING STARDESTROYER WOULD FIT IN THIS SHIPYARD, even for the acclamator-class its to small!

I'm sure when he says big one, he means the station to the left of the satelite being fired upon.

The ring is the Kuat Drive Yards planetary ring. It's based on the art from the "Coruscant and the Core Worlds" sourcebook. Hope that clears it up

Yep, I'm a designer. I share an office with Delphi. They usually don't let me post very often since I tend to be far more blunt and truthful than the the PR guys would like

That's one of the problems with trying to decide on art for the Star Wars universe - there are so many artist's interpretations that it's hard to decide which one is considered "real". We decided to use the ring since it was displayed in a recent RPG book that was provided by Lucas, and it was a nice change from just the normal planetary sphere.
