+1 for fridge logic.

It really doesn't matter all that much, like you guys have said, there is not a book series titled "THE NAGA SADOW TALES". However, since you seem to care so much, you might want to think about the fact that

To follow this up, the Tomb of Naga Sadow has already been well established in the Bioware continuity as existing on Korriban, this goes all the way back to the first Kotor game where you actually do a series of quests in said tomb.


Behold the FAQ for it.

So if anything, Bioware did do the research...they are remaining consistent with their own lore.

And thus, with all their faults (of which none come to mind) Bioware is not doing anything poor to our dear lore.

Screaming "retcon!" is idiotic because that assumes they planned the retcon and had the blessing of related parties.

Do you know how few people playing this game, or any KOTOR game know any Star Wars lore other then the movies?

I doubt it's many.

But hey, keep calling people stupid sheep for not devoting as much time as you have learning about a made up universe.

Well I have noticed one minor lack of continuity if anything.

Hammerhead-Class Cruiser, the main Republic warship in KotOR (The Endar Spire is of the same class) does not appear in the game aside from the crashed remains of said Endar Spire. The Hammerhead-Class is supposed to be active all the way to 1000 BBY.

Just sayin'.

For those that fight against continuity errors in the Star Wars universe, I have 2 words for you: George Lucas.

This man can, and will, with barely a thought of consequence change the canons to whatever he deems worthy (Greedo shooting first comes to mind) so fighting over "This doesn't match this book / magazine / nerd wet dream" may either become reality or just be part of a list of mistakes that anyone involved will have made

Space Combat, the Republic Fleet Ships looked very similar to The Endar Spire. I could be wrong.

Edit: Looked it up on Google. Noticed the huge difference. Active doesn't necessarily mean always used. And where did you get the info on HH-Class being used all the way to 1,000 BBY? The only known ones were all Old Republic.

Look out the window on Carrick Station to see the Republic Fleet. Also do some space combat...Hammerheads are everywhere.

Hammerheads are more different in the rear end.
