    I've been making so many threads about assorted questions I decided to make one thread for all my questions.
    Anyway, LET THE PONDERING BEGIN!

    I read somewhere High Admiral Teradoc's fleet was crimson coloured. Does this mean Teradoc had his SDs painted red? That'd would look extremelly odd and cool at the same time :)

    Also, I wanna read COJ. Can I read it, having read TTT, JAT, RS, WG and SOA?

    Last question:
    Why does Ooryl Qyrgg alternate between calling himself Gand, Ooryl and Qrgg?

    1. Yes.

    2. Yes.

    3. Complicated. The books explain it a few times. You may find an answer in the Unofficial SW Encyclopedia, linked here to TFN. Look under "Ooryl Qyrgg" or "Gand".

    Booster Terrik must have been so jealous of Teradoc. :)

    And the correct spelling of Ooryl's last name is Qrygg.

    I never memorized it. Did I spell it the way Stackpole originally had it, in Rogue Squadron? :)

    Qrygg is the spelling used most throughout the series. In Rogue Squadron, Qyrgg was used about 3 or 4 different times (when Ooryl is explaining his culture to Corran and Lujayne), but he is Qrygg for the rest of X-wings 1-4. He stayed Qrygg until X-wing 6 or 7, when Allston referred to him as Qyrgg constantly. In X-wing 8, he is also referred to as Qyrgg. However, in I, Jedi, he is back to Qrygg.

    Given that Qrygg is the spelling most often used, it must be the correct one.

    Okay, I got a question. In which EU books does Teradoc appear? I think I've read a few of them, but I can't seem to remember for the life of me.

    He's mentioned in quite a few, but only appears in Darksaber I believe.

    In fact, it's pronounced Q[sputtering]gg, so people never now how to write it. The closest are Qyrgg and Qrygg, so both are correct. That's why authors use both.

    And that is not serious, 'canon' as some would say, but it could be, no ? No ?

    Qrygg is the absolute correct spelling. Qyrgg is just plain wrong.

    In answer to Zaarin's earlier question about why Ooryl calls himself different things...

    gands see it as the height of arrogance to refer to one's self as 'I'- according to their culture, it makes the assumption that every gand everywhere will know who you are referring to.

    Therefore, a Gand refers to him/herself by this/her...

    a) First name if they are happy/feel good about themselves
    b) Second name if they are a bit embarrased or submissive
    c) 'Gand' if they've done something really really bad or embarrasing.

    Each level takes away a peice of the Gand's identity, as he/she feels he/she doesn't deserve that identity, or perhaps wants to shrink into anonymity.

    However, if a Gand becomes a 'findsman', he is bestowed with the honour of referring to himself in the first person -"I"-, as was the case with Ooryl in the end.

    Another question: Swoops and speeder bikes...are they different?
    Yet another question: What is the name of Warlord Teradoc's command ship?

    Yes, swoops and speeder bikes are different. While both are the basic equivelent of a motorcycle, it is more the type you'd look at. I'd say that, despite there no doubt being sporting speeder bikes, a swoop should be viewed as a sports bike while a speeder bike is more like a road or highway bike.

    Swoops and speeder bikes are quite different. Speeder bikes have straight steering vanes, while swoops have curved ones.

    Swoops are like drag racers. Speeder bikes are like stock cars.

    HOw can it be Kwirg when the R is in front of the Y? The correct pronunciation is Krig.

    Actually, it says in Darksaber that Teradoc built his Vics out of some stuff that gave them the red colors. They weren't painted, they were built red.

    And I have a question: What sound does a giraffe make?

    Hiya Admiral Zaarin, your one of my favorite characters from the PC games ;) heh about your question. I just happened to read this last night and just seen your quesiton.

    I guess maybe its unrelated but in Star Wars Adventure Journal # 10, on pages 231 and 232 it has an article from the "Imperial Defense Daily" that 100 Victory Class Star Destoryers, ungoing upgrades and refiting at a Kuat Drive Yards ship yard have been fitted out with what they call "havod metal alloy" which is redish in color. The reason for these 100 VSDs being outfited with "havod" primary hull plates is that all through out the Empire there is a critial stortage of "doomium metal alloy" (all reserves of the doomium is being used for ISD production). The havod, well in a certain point of view sounds to be stronger than the doomium but because doomium is the white/grey color and its been used for 10 centurys no one will use the havod except in special cases.


    It is an interesting little article to be sure. And it fits in well with "Darksaber". Oh another little note about those VSDs, it says that they have been in the shipyards for over 2 years and they are useing the havod in order to get the shipyards clear for new projects. It doesn`t say how long it took to put the hull plates in place, but maybe these are the same ones in use by Teradoc.

    Hope that helps !

    Next questions: Are lasers and blasters different?
    Does Palpy's DE clone still look twisted, or like a proper person?
    Is DE worth listening to? (The only form of DE I can actually find is the audio book...but hey, no reading involved :D)
    Are the non-canonical (canon adjective?) racers in Episode I Racer (the game) featured anywhere else? The racers in question are Toy Dampner, Slide Paramita, 'Bullseye' Navoir, Cy Yunga, Fud Sang, Jinn Reeso and Bozzie Baranta.
    Are all Vratix terrorists on Thyferra who work against the bacta cartels?
