    Sure. You can join. As long as you come visit the site enough. There are a few of us here that are very well-versed on the EU; I love to have Star Wars conversations. Check out the trivia thread, as well. I loved Senate Murders. It was a wonderful episode. I actually liked the Mandalorian Trilogy, especially Voyage of Temptation.

    Thanks. It will be nice having some people to talk to about Star Wars besides my brother.

    Check out the Off-topic thread. We are usually talking many things Star Wars on there. You can always send me a private message as well, if you want to talk about something Star Wars.

    Cool, thanks. I guess i'll start a new topic. Anyone excited about the new Lego Star Wars 3 and/or The Force Unleashed 2 both out this fall?

    The Force Unleashed 2 could be good. Not a big fan of the first one, though. The story on this one seems good, but, I already know pretty much where it is going. But, hopefully there are some twists along the way.

    I agree. I didn't like the first one's story that much. I didn't like how they formed the Rebellion. Of course, I have read so many EU novels, I like the start in those better. Also; the dude pulled a Star Destroyer out of the sky. Enough said.

    I agree with u on that one. I liked the way it was shown in the Han Solo Trilogy better. It showed that it was much harder to get all the little rebellions to join into one giant group. In the game it seemed a liitle too easy.

    Very true. I love how Bria worked so hard to bring everyone together, especially Alderaan. Of course, she is one of my favorite characters. TFU seemed to make her sacrifice in vain. Rebel Dawn is my favorite EU novel. I've always liked Bria, she is so beautiful and strong. She overcame the Exultation, which has always stuck with me about her character. She devoted herself to the Alliance, and I always loved reading more about her. The scene with her on Toprawa was sad but extremely well done. She had such an important part of the overall story, and so few know about her. The last 2 chapters of that novel are the best you will ever read in Star Wars. You are the first person that has agreed with me that that birth of the Rebellion is the best. I tip my hat to you.

    Thank you. I definately agree that not many people know about her character. Likely because the series was not as well known as the Thrawn or Jedi Academy trilogies, but its as good as those two series are. I thought that Crispin was an excellent writer and I wish she had wrote more in the expanded universe.

    She is quite the amazing writer. I too, would love to see her write another EU novel. When educating people about Star Wars, I always bring up Bria Tharen. I feel everyone should know about her. She is the pinnacle of Han Solo's character. Have you ever read "The Yavin Vassilika"? I love that comic; if you've read it, you know why. I am glad to see someone else on here that knows about Star Wars like brodoin, and myself. Always nice to have detailed Star Wars conversations.

    No I haven't read that. Is it something I could find at a bookstore or online?

    The best way to read it would be in the Boba Fett Omnibus. It's a great story set during the Han Solo Trilogy.

    It seems good. However, I am refraining from reading the Clone Wars novels right now. At least until after the timeline is fixed and we know where everything fits in. It's kind of in shambles as of late. Might I recommend something? Go to Amazon to purchase books and such. Much cheaper, at least for me. I am a Prime member so it saves me tons of money. Just a suggestion for a fellow Star Wars reader.

    I agree, I usually buy stuff on amazon. Especially b/c I can usually get the 4 for 3 deal on the Star Wars books. I don't blame u for not reading the clone war books at this point. The tv series seems to have messed a lot with the timeline.

    The Bacta War is my favorite. I absolutely love Corran Horn. My least fave was Wild Space. Karen Miller completely messed with the characters' personalities. I read about half the book and then wanted to throw it against a wall.

    I did like Corran Horn. Then I read some of I, Jedi. Completely turned me off to his character. That novel is ridiculously terrible. I have never finished it.
