Nah, I was just giving information, on the Infinite Empire. Incase people are interested. Otherwise this thread would be the usual boring one.

Did the Rakata ever master the star forge?, I know they had issues hmmmm.
Also, they defeated the celestials if i'm correct? They were like the ancients of Stargate in all honesty. With their versions of stargates, etc, being honest the celestials are probably more advanced than current SW, asides from Military.


They defeated the Kwa who had what you were describing, stargate like portals and such. Though the Kwa were able to destroy them before the Rakata could get it. There was also some war thing or whatever between the Rakata and the other clients of the Celestials, but details are just bare and don't really offer much.

Then in came Disney canon, and scrapped all that, our only hope now would be Swtor.

Eh doubt TOR is gonna add anything that far back, they just seem to be going off the walls and just throwing stuff together.

We can only hope, more with belsavis would be nice tbh. Also I wonder why the teleporters there were never replicated.

That's quite a nice accolade.

Itís nice, but also incredibly vague not to mention contradicting what is actually shown. Unless of course the Rakata ability to wage war is complete shit from their other avenues of society.

Unless they really expect people to believe this and then have them also believe that the Rakata had issues with the Jed'aii Order and the Kwa.

Not really useful since their teleporters are really limited.

Esh-kha managed to use one to teleport into a ship in high orbit.

Source? Because I don't recall that happening, the teleporters were limited going from point A to point B.

Plus again, their military tech isn't the best, their ships are crap.

Pulled it from the Wiki http://starwars.wikia.com/wiki/Teleporter
It's part of a mission, I cant remember.

Found it, so ok the Esh-kha can do that sure. But that's one instance and frankly it seems more trouble than its worth to set up teleporters given we only see them on Belsavis and them being detectable doesn't really help anything other than helping them get destroyed.

More to that, the fact that there was such technology and yet still it didn't really do much of anything to change...well anything, means that it's not a game changer.

The IE still is limited, their ships aren't anything special to make any real headway and they can't really answer the CIS various ground forces and tech edge.

TOR frankly screwed things over with the IE, as now they don't really make any sense of their capabilities.

Yeah, they seem to be millennium ahead in certain fields, but millennium behind in others. It's pretty strange how the Republic, never capitalized on teleporter technology and improved it, Lokath has similar teleportation, in KOTET. I guess it gets lost/destroyed etc.

Might make a thread about the eternal empire/lokath considering they are superior to the rakata in everyway, asides from the force.

It's dumb technology to have in a setting like SW, it shouldn't have even been introduced.
