View Full Version : What ships are avalibe in what time.

13 December 2000, 06:38 AM
Is it just me or are other people having a hard time figuring when the ship's should be avalible. I am the gm for a game in the Ep I time but the only ship's I know that are in that time is the Trade Federation droid Starfighter, the Naboo starfighter and the Trade federation Battleship. I think the Z-95 is also in this time but I am not sure. Does anybody have a list of what ships are avalible at this time. If you also have the stat's for them it would be a helpful.

13 December 2000, 06:43 AM
<p align=justify>I typed up ALL WEG starship and vehicle stats. Would be a long thread, if I posted them all. I'm working on the list you want.</p>

The Z-95 is considered quite a hot piece of gear in EP-1, as a pilot tells Anakin in the EP-1 novel.
Personally: Z-95's!!! Good???? Dear God! I'm glad I play in the Classic Era.....

this is a good question, I'm running a game that starts at the same time as ANH, what Imp cap ships were in their inventory. all we saw in the movies was ISD's. Like when is the TIE bomber intorduced, was it in ANH and we didn't see it or was it later? and the TIE interceptor? were they somewhere in the imp navy in limited numbers during ESB?

Z-95's top of the line....<shudders>...no wonder the emporer had no trouble getting the galaxy conquered...

wow, thats great! I'm guessing that the lambda shuttles were around so i don't really need that...what about ground stuff, AT-AT's and such...and starfighters?

13 December 2000, 09:39 AM
OK, here we go:

I think I'd have to dissagree with the interdictor cruiser being around in A New Hope. We didn't see any when they woulfd have been the ideal choice of ship to use in trapping the Tantive IV. We didn't see any in the Death Squadron for use in capturing Rebel ships at hoth. There was no need for them at Endor really, but I was under the impression that they didn't come along until very near the EU started. Perhaps only around the Thrawn era. They seemed quite a new technology as some of the tactics Thrawen used were revolutionary to their use.

Please correct me if I'm wrong.

13 December 2000, 06:32 PM
I don't know Zak.
I remember in one of the X-wing books, booster purchased a gravity well projector with the help of Karde, or he purchased it from Karde, i can't remember exactly.
But that was two to two and half years after Endor. And in the...second one there was an interdictor that defected to the Republic.
and i know some of you really don't like the computer games, but one of the Campaigns in XvT focused around an interdictor.
So in my opinion I'd say the interdictor came about sometime around hoth, if not before.

Interdictors came in before Hoth, but Vader was too impatient to wait for them to join Death Squadron (you'd be confident with an SSD and god knows how many ISDs) so he went off and did Hoth by himself.

14 December 2000, 04:18 AM
I would also like to know what ships are new in NJO, such as the XJ, etc., if it's not too much trouble...

14 December 2000, 05:13 AM
<p align=justify>For the NJO ships, please look at:

The following is a list of ships that can be found in previously printed WEG Star Wars material. These ships are listed as in use either during the Clone Wars or around the time of the Naboo Crisis, suitable for a E1 era game. Since I don't support copyright infringement, you'll only find a listing of where to find the stats yourself, not the actual stats themselves.

Alderaan War Frigate
These were mentioned as being in service during the clone wars, before Alderaan adopted their no weapons policy. Generaly scrapped and converted for more peaceful duty after the wars. The stats for a modified war frigate can be found in the Graveyard of Alderaan.

All Terrain Personal Transport
Technically not a starship, the AT-PT was wide spread enough throughout the Galactic Republic to monition here. The
precursor to the Imperial model AT-AT, the AT-PT is a heavy-duty combat mech designed to turn a solder into a
one-man army. A large number of them were deployed aboard the Katana fleet, and thus can be found in the Dark
Force Rising sourcebook.

Barloz Medium Freighter
Although no era is given, it is STRONGLY implied that this is an ancient ship, predating the YT series. Stats and
capsule can be found in Stock Ships.

BR-23 Courier
A personnel transport by Republic Sienar Systems. Found in Rules of Engagement

Carrack-Class Cruisers
The Imperial sourcebook mentions that this class is extremely old, but gives no specific date for their commissioning. Since the sourcebook points out the age of the Dreadnaught specifically, one can guess that the Carrak's age was not important enough to point out, and was probably not as old. Still, this is an old class of ship, and could easily be passed off as in service at the time of the Naboo crisis.

Corellian Corvette
Although seemingly a newer ship, the Star Wars Sourcebook mentions a several decade cycle between multi purpose
starships and single use vessels. It then goes on to mention the older Corellian corvette, implying an older origin for
the ship. This is backed up by the design of the Republic Diplomatic Cruiser seen in the opening of TPM - certainly a
similar design. Stats and capsules can be found in the Star Wars Sourcebook (among others).

Corellian HT-2200 medium freighter
If designed as the follow-up to the successful YT-1300, as mentioned, this ship could be around just a few years after
the introduction of the 1300's. Stats and capsules can be found in Stock Ships.

C-73 Tracker Starfighter
The C-73 Tracker predates the Z-95 Headhunter, easily putting it into the E1 time period. Since it does mention that finding a C-73 in action during the Imperial reign is rare, presumably they were not as wide spread a starfighter as the Z-95. Stats and capsule can be found in Pirates and Privateers and in Alliance Intelligence reports.

Dreadnaught Cruiser
Well into wide spread usage by the time of the Naboo crisis, the Dreadnought forms one of the major components of
the Republic's naval backbone. Stats and capsules can be found in the Imperial Sourcebook.

Gauntlet starfighter
Vaguely mentioned as an older and relatively unsuccessful starfighter. The fighter was unpopular due to the political
upheaval during it's release (perhaps during the fall of the Republic?) - but it still may not be old enough to include in a TPM game. Can be found in Planets of the Galaxy Volume 1

Imperial Dungeon Ships
Although introduced during the height of the Jedi Purge, somewhere in Episode Three, it is included here for
completeness. It is also not inconceivable that the Jedi order had something similar to these vessels, for controlling and containing dangerous foes of their own. These can be found in the Dark Empire sourcebook.

Kappa Class Troop Shuttle
A shuttle design dating from the Old Republic Navy. Mentioned in Rules of Engagment.

Marauder Corvette
Although it doesn't give a date for when these ships entered service, the CSA sourcebook does mention Republic Sienar
Systems by name, indicating a pre Empire origin. Conceivably these ships could have been in service for quite a long
period of time. Stats and capsules can be found in the Han Solo and the Corporate Sector Authority Sourcebook.

Nella 342 Light Freighter
The Nella 342 is mentioned to have been rendered obsolete by the YT-1300, placing it well within the E1 era. Stats
and capsule can be found in Pirates and Privateers.

Nova Drive 3-Z light freighter
Said to be based off the designs for YT-1200. Presumably this vessel would not be based on an outdated class of ship,
and could possibly be included in the TPM era. Found in Stock Ships

Rebel Assault Frigate
Although it wouldn't be identified as such, the Rebel Assault Frigate was just a stripped down Dreadnaught, outfitted for minimum crew. It is quite possible that rim governments and other private groups would be able to be able to create similar circumstances. The assault frigate can be found in the Rebel Sourcebook.

Rin Assid Bulk Hauler
Clearly stated as being in service for seven hundred years. Stats and capsule can be found in Pirates and Privateers.

TIE fighter
Originally constructed by Republic Seinar Systems, this predecessor to the Imperial model TIE fighter was introduced to service around the clone wars. Found in Adventure Journal #7 (I believe) or Here

Victory Star Destroyers
Although these vessels are clearly shown to have shown up during the Clone Wars, they are included here for
completeness. Stats and capsules can be found in many sources including the Dark Force Rising sourcebook.

YT-1300 Light Freighter
The Corellian Engineering Corporation's YT series is older than dirt. It's mentioned in several places that the 1300
series, although wide spread, is ancient and almost obsolete (to the point where Admiral Thrawn's troops had trouble
coming up with a new one when they needed it). Presumably this ship, and the lines below it (the YT-1210, YT-1200
and so on) are around and plentiful in the E1 era. Stats and capsule can be found just about everywhere.

Z-95 Headhunter
Mentioned in one of the early chapters of the novelisation of TPM, this fighter was in service in the Old Republic. The
existence of so many Z-95's in the Empire and post Endor eras indicate that this fighter was quite wide spread, quite
possibly forming the backbone of the Republic starfighter forces, much like the X- Wing is to the New Republic. Stats
and capsules can be found everywhere, however the CSA sourcebook would be the earliest model of the Z-95.

29 December 2000, 02:42 PM
The TIE Bomber was introduced right after Yavin. The TIE Interceptor came out about a year later and wasn't common until the Battle of Endor two years later.

29 December 2000, 07:02 PM
If the TIE bomber wasn't around until _after_ the Battle of Yavin, would someone care to explain the <i>Redemption</i> scenario Corran flew in X-Wing: Rogue Squadron?

It clearly has TIE bombers and just as clearly states that it dated back to before the first Death Star.

"The scenario was based on an Imperial attack on evacuation ships back before the first Death Star had been destroyed."

Then a few pages later...

"The image of the first TIE bomber filled his monitor."

Of course, all this evidence only works if one includes the EU...

31 December 2000, 06:13 AM
Okay, I could be wrong on the introduction date of the TIE Bomber, but they still weren't common until after Yavin. All the other evidence from the RPG books and some other scources (like the Essential Gudie to Starships) say that the Empire in the period after Yavin was upgrading their bobmer fleet from the TIE/gt to the TIE Bomber.

19 March 2006, 04:48 AM
The Millenium Falcon was constructed in 60 BBY--I'm sure that YT-1300s would be available during that time.

Also, I think some Gallofree yards transports would be available at this time?? Remember, Gallofree went bankrupt Before the Battle of Yavin, so the GR-45 and GR-75 would be available in Ep. 1 Time.

A lot of transports featured in the early New Order were probably available as early as EP. 1 time. If the YT-1300 had been around since 60 BBY, I'm sure that transports like the YT-450 had been around even longer!

21 March 2006, 03:59 AM
The interdictor was around in ANH, it was used by the Empire to blockade Yavin after the Death Star was destroyed in an attempt to keep the rebels there. Vader kept them there until he could bring the Executor there to destroy the rebels quickly with the ship. Most Imperials thought it was a form of grandstanding, showing off.

21 April 2006, 12:30 PM
Some data gleaned from the Star Wars Adventure Journals GalaxyWide NewsNets:
Note: 5 day weeks, 7 weeks in a month, 10 months to a year, there are also feast days which are not countedas part of weeks/months that push the year to 368 days (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dates_in_Star_Wars)

Aldaraan destroyed around 35-3-12
Tie/x2 finishes testing (hyperdrive equiped Squint) 36-1-13
article notes that x3 version to begin production in 16 months (standard squint), puts start of production around 37-7
Executor (first of super star destroyers) commissioned on 37-10-23
the last dated entry for the NewsNet is the attack on Hoth: 38-6-9

There are probably other dates hidden in the other articles, but it'll take some time to go through

14 May 2006, 04:25 PM
For Clone Wars era -- and presumably used later -- there's the Torpil T-19 starfighter, flown by non-clone pilots. It was used by the Praesitlyn Defense Forces in Jedi Trial, which is set just before Anakin was knighted. I've not seen stats for this snubfighter, however. But I'd like to.

15 May 2006, 12:25 PM
Don't forget the Toscan 8-Q Fighter (precursor to the Y-wing): stats can be found in Pirates & Privateers.

15 May 2006, 01:55 PM
the Kuat Systems Engineering CloakShape fighter would be suitable for this era too I think, it's listed as being 'like the aging Z-95 Headhunter' in the essential guide to vehicles and vessels.


17 May 2006, 01:57 PM
It's also listed as such in the Dark Empire Sourcebook!:D

Xain Arke
17 May 2006, 04:52 PM
It's also listed as such in the Dark Empire Sourcebook!

Ah-Ha! thanks for that schnarre, when I posted I could not for the life of me remember which D6 source book the cloakshape was in, hence the essential guide reference. :D

Glad to be of help!;)

18 May 2006, 06:32 PM
While the games are great, the often have issues in keeping to the timeline. The TIE Bomber did not become standard issue until after Yavin 4, and if the TIE Inteceptor was around before Endor, it was in prototype stage. The TIE Inteceptor was held up in production because it was never sure SFS would get the contract to actually make them, the much superior (and more expensive) TIE Avenger/Defender (a design written off as too expensive) was in compition for that contract. TIE Avenger/Defenders were made in limited numbers, and mainly given to elite starfighter squadrons. The WEG books list production dates on TIE/Advanced, but most sources I have read have referred to them as a fluke and limited productions exist of them. Obviously, the prototype was at Yavin 4, but I cannot find any referance to others until NJO. Also for capital ships, don't forget Carrack Cruisers, Star Galleons, Galleons, Vindicator 414 (the Imperial Interdictor is on this chassis.) Lancer frigates, and Marader Corvettes are also around and the Nebulon B was acctually used by both sides in the conflict (although I think that they weren't in use until around Hoth-Bespin.) I hope some of this helps.

18 May 2006, 06:59 PM
there were also the 344 class cruisers from the clone wars used in outer rim sectors, as well as 1000 class cruisers. (WEG Sourcebooks). Invincible cruisers, as well as other archaic ships were still in use too.

20 May 2006, 04:28 PM
as i recall when i read the x-wing series i remember that the "redemtion scenario" was in fact before the Death Star and contained bombers."
