Was it a Vong ship? He says it was unlike anything he'd ever seen, with highly advanced weapons, and it left the known galaxy. All of that points to the Vong. Sorry if I'm slow at picking up on this, but it's been a long, LONG time since I went through that conversation with him, and back then I knew nothing about the Yuuzahn Vong.

im not sure if the vong were used in comics back then, it might have been a Teaser, but yes it supports that it was the Vong
Chose a Marauder, Not because they are OP, i chose it because its the closest thing to Revan as you can get, Revanites Unite!

See, I recall that back then, everybody had a theory. And nobody had a damned clue whatsoever. Then today, I just happened to check some stuff on Wookieepedia, and came across the Vong's ships, the coralskippers, or whatever? Knights of the Old Republic is listed under appearances.

Oh, and I just did some digging. The vong were introduced in a novel in 1999. So they were very much around by the time KOTOR came out, so it's a very good possibility.

id like to see this as a ingame Plot, really would spice things up, lets say some Vong break off from the main Force and decide to Cleanse the galaxy on their own a bit early, and they take control of a world and it will be a Kaon under siege scenario except that theyve bombed the planet to the ground and whatnot

As much as it would be interesting, the other thread about the Vong has stirred up quite a bit of... Hostility.

What Canderous was describing was indeed a Vong Coralskipper. They are the fighters the Vong use. Over the course of the 4000+ years leading up to the NJO series of novels the Vong would send out small scouting sorties to poke around the edges of the galaxy. For a long time, however, they had no interest to actually invade. If I remember correctly it wasn't until the last 50 to 100 years or so that plans to invade were set in motion.

I would not want to see them in the game in any form except MAYBE as a flashpoint where you are investigating the disappearance of a science team and come across a scouting team on a Far Rim or Wild Space planet.

That's... Pretty fricking cool, then. It really ties KOTOR to the rest of the lore.

The vong imo (especially aesthetically, despite coming first) are glorified space Darkspawn that are supposed to be so great, powerful, and mighty. I am fine with adding new villains or creating more interesting cultures (why I love Old Republic era Mandos) but I am definitely perplexed as it why it was a good idea to introduce a race from another galaxy that slaughters endlessly and then end the series by making peace with that race.

It would be interesting to encounter a Vong raiding party, or perhaps a group that splits off and attacks early. Perhaps they'd call themselves something other than the Yuuzhan Vong, and the name and info is lost to legends and folklore. They'd make for a killer Flashpoint or Operation.
