Some Information on This Encyclopedia

This encyclopedia was created from all Lucasflim-licensed sources of Star Wars information. It was created without regard for what is "canon" what is not "canon" in the Star Wars universe. I did, however, place information from the Marvel Comics series in the Arcana section, since much of it is wildly outside the standard Star Wars dogma.

It was first made available to friends in 1994, after about 2 ½ years of work. I had been compiling information in a few text files, since I
hadn't read any of the West End Games material when Heir to the Empire came out. Thus, I was completely at a loss as to what a
Lancer-class frigate was. As it grew, I realized that this was bigger than the text files I had started with, so I tried out WordPerfect. Once
I got everything converted over, and started really getting it presentable, I printed out the First Edition.
I kept working on it, especially when I learned about the scope of the West End Games material and the width of Bantam Spectra's deal
to produce new novels. My free time, as I knew it, would be forever changed!

When I got the HTML plug-in for WordPerfect, I knew it was time to "go public." That first HTML converter took about 14 hours to
complete the entire encyclopedia (which was about 2 Megabytes in size as a WP60 file), and my AOL account could only handle about
15 letters of the alphabet. I am indebted to those readers who started visiting my website back then, and who clamored for more
information. After trying a couple other converters in an effort to get that 14-hour time down, I gave up on WordPerfect and migrated to
Word 97. (This was a tough choice, since I am not Bill Gates' biggest fan by any stretch of the imagination!) The HTML code converted
in about 10 minutes, from a set of files which was now about 5 Megabytes in total. All this meant that I had more time to figure out how
to make the encyclopedia presentable.

I moved my ISP from AOL to Mindspring, and was able to get the full encyclopedia uploaded. However, I was limited to 450 Megabytes
of transfer per month, which at first was OK. But, as the prequels started getting headlines, I would hit that mark every once in a while.
When the prequels were about a year away, I would hit it every month. It was at this time thatMosEisle y. com offered to host my
encyclopedia. I hesitated, not sure if I should move. However, as the prequels approached and I starting hitting my limit by the 15thof
each month, I was getting as frustrated as my readers. So, I agreed to their offer and moved to their server. Thanks, Matt and Stan!

Of course, things always look greener across the fence, and I began to get a lot of notes from readers asking me to send them the files
via e-mail. While the server was handling the HTML code pretty well, downloads were only completing about half the time. This was
getting to be a hassle, as was the week where the site was down for an unknown reason. Also, space started to become an issue,
prohibiting me from putting up lots of pictures and graphics. Thus, I took a sabbatical from MosEisley.com and started hunting for a new
home. Amazingly, I found one almost immediately atT heForce.Net. They agreed to give me a ton of space and all the help I needed.
While I had this before, I was now part of one of the largest Star Wars sites on the Internet. TheForce.Net had already recognized my
encyclopedia as a cool site, and now it was on its way to becometh e Star Wars encyclopedia on the Internet.

This is the first edition withT heForce.Net, and I hope it reaches new and existing readers with more ease than ever. Thanks to readers
like you, I've been transferring well over 4 Gigabytes of data each month! I'm also indebted to the readers who have written back,
pointing out problems and offering suggestions, in an effort to make this the most complete and comprehensive encyclopedia available!
I rally do enjoy reading your correspondences and answering your questions. Keep 'em coming!

It is impossible to create a document like this from such a huge body of knowledge without finding some inconsistencies and errors.
Every author who has written in the Star Wars universe has commented on it and dealt with it. Lucasfilm has final say on the material I
drew from, and it makes no claim that the material is 100 percent compatible with George Lucas' vision of the Star Wars universe. So,
if there are errors or inconsistencies, I have tried to note them as appropriate.

It is important to note that this massive work could not have been completed (like it will ever be complete!) without help from a number
of sources. They are all noted in the Acknowledgements section. I just hope i didn't leave anyone out!

I have also tried to document the source of my encyclopedia entries at all times. The bibliography at the end of this encyclopedia is
quite extensive, and I have tried to indicate with each entry which source it came from. If an entry is not sourced, it means that I could
not remember where I found it. If you find an unsourced or inaccurately sourced entry, please e-mail me!. The source listed is the first
reference to an entry. If there are multiple sources listed, then all sources listed contributed some information to the encyclopedia. The
