Those are Thranta-class corvettes. [1][2]

MasterKai's point is that the Thranta-class corvette has completely replaced the Hammerhead-class cruiser, despite the Hammerhead's continued use well up until 1,000 BBY.

Apparently, nobody cares, not even the nerds at BioWare who get paid to be nerds.

Darth Bane: Path of Destruction features the Hammerhead-class cruiser as the backbone of the Republic fleet during the First Battle of Ruusan.

holy crap i did not realise that.
Retconning this and that is one thing but how could they not see the knock on effect it has to a HUGE amount of the EU.

If sadow died on korriban not yavin then his spirit (bound to his tomb) on yavin 4 would never have taught freedon nadd, if nadd never went dark side then the entire history of onderon is changed and the freedon nadd uprising never happened, ulic and exar kun were never pushed to the dark side and the sith wars never happened and so on and so on.

That is one hell of a horrendous oversight, who the crap is in charge of vetting this stuff?!

@OP: Like others said, it's a quite over the top to call Bioware lazy. Overall they do a pretty good job @ their homework, because:
1) They stay consistent with the KoTOR-series.
2) If they are lazy, Lucas Licensing is sleeping as well.


About the HH-Class thingy: There's a difference between a Corvette (Thrantra) en a Cruiser (Hammerhead). That would also explain the difference in rear-ends between the 2. BTW, is there ne info on the types of cruisers the Pubs use? All I've seen so far a Corvettes & Destroyers, no Cruisers just yet.

As you continue to pay $15 a month and probably spent over $100 on the game.

Also, thanks guys for pointing me to the wikipedia article of the Tomb of Naga Sadow! Because that's what I was arguing really.. Oh wait, I wasn't. The tomb was long established in the KOTOR games. It's the actual character. Btw, go ahead and explain this retcon when in their holovideos, the jedi master recording them also said Sadow died on Yavin IV. Ooops, lets chalk that up to "no one cares". I enjoy the captain save a hoe logic.

I'm still lost. So a thousand years later they assume it's Sadow in there. If the tomb was built for Sadow and Sadow didn't actually get buried there and a sith lord corpse turns up in sadow's tomb wouldn't they logically believe it was Sadow not having knowledge that he died on Yavin?

Oh, Interesting.
Hapan: "This creature has information that could lead us to a woman who has been kidnapped. We will get that information."
Luke: "This woman is a citizen of the New Republic, and if you do not take your hands off her, I will take your hands off you."

Except for, y'know, Tales of the Jedi: The Golden Age of the Sith and Tales of the Jedi: The Fall of the Sith Empire, wherein Naga Sadow is a major figure in both story arcs.
