The information presented on these pages comes mostly from the Star Wars films
themselves. My policy on "what is canon and what is not" is that the films, their novels,
screenplays, and radio dramas are canon. Everything else is speculation.
Legal Note: Since this site is now being hosted on
StarDestroyer.Net, I (Michael Wong) am now the de facto publisher even though Brian Young
originally composed it. I would therefore like to make note of the fact that I have carefully
examined the entire site and determined that its use of copyrighted images and trademarks from Star
Wars qualifies as "fair use" under the provisions of copyright law.
