Read the name Yuuzhan Vong a few times here or at other boards and then i had a look at EU.
After reading the short arcticle about them i thought hey who writes such a ****!
Are those storywriters so smallminded that they needed another Empire the new Republic have to deal with?
This Yuuzhan Vong crap doesnīt fit into StarWars but StarTrek or so.
Wasnīt the confusion after the DeathstarII blow up and the Death of the Emporor enough for many aftermatch stories?
Starwars have a nice Story from the beginning to the end (the movies) and donīt need such a bull**** like Yuuzhan Vong wich sounds they are coming from the Inka times.

Just my 2 cents

Actually after the movies you still had alot of conflict between Imperial Rebel forces such as Thrawn, and daala. But you also had alot of other creatures after the Death of the Emperor coming out of no where, I think what alot of those writers are trying to do is keep the story going :)

Though i don't see them as real Star Wars, I still think they're a fairly good invention. I mean, how many conflicts could there still be bewteen the new republic and the Remnant? Those Remnant guys aren't stupid, and now that they're on the losing side, with no Emperor that will kill them if they even think of betraying him, more and more joined the ranks of the Nmew Republic and ultimatly, they would sign a peace treaty. That's only logical. So then they had to come up with a new enemy for the Republic to fight, and they came up with the Yuuzhan vong.

wow, with grammar and spelling like that I'm suprised you managed to read a whle NJO novel.... which one did you read ??? Did you actually read one, or are you just one of those "I hate it because I've never read it but it's not star wars" people :p

whether ppl like the njo or not, its here to stay, its officially sanctioned, and it was a welcome progression from endless stories about clones, superweapons and grand admirals that are so good theyre sent to the nether regions of the galaxy during the empires most crucial conflict :p

*raspberries zahn*

NJO took a step the lit EU needed to take, to develop characterisations and story foundations for a stronger EU and many future books, with and without the YV :p

Just because he doesn't like NJO or the Yuuzhan Vong doesn't mean he never read the books. I don't like either of them and I've read half of the series.

Bow down to the Yuuzhan Vong! I read all 19 books!!

Astrotoy,
first i want to apologize that english isnīt my first language.
And no i didnīt read the novel but the short arcticle i found at Starwars.com about the crapy Vong story. Oh iīm glad that i never wasted my time to read the novel. I realy like the stories from the old republic even if i didnīt read much about it too .
But those stories sounds more familiar and fits better into StarWars then the vong. If itīs "official" then StarWars ends for me with before they showed up :-)

Don't blame the NJO makers on the Yuuzhan Vong. They wanted to use Sith, but GL would not allow it.

NJO has torn down a lot of what's great about Star Wars and also a lot of other, way f***ing better, EU. If you're going to kill off a charater as f***ing big as Chewbacca don't do it in the first f***ing book of the f***ing series. Wait a while to get more people hooked before you drop the big f***ing bomb.

The reason that they had to kill Chewie in the first book, is because people were less likely to get hooked if they didn't. They actually wanted to kill Luke instead, but Lucas would not allow it. They did drop a bomb after people were hooked, it was that they killed Anakin Solo

And I do know a (words emmitted to avoid ET's angry face) about Star Wars. I had been an avid fan, watched the movies countless times, read every novel from Truce at Bakura to Vision of the Future, played tons of PC games, etc. long before I had even heard of Vector Prime (or anything NJO for that matter).


btw, I like NJO, but still prefer Classic and New Republic eras.

Well, sort of. They did come up with the idea, but they would not have if not for GL. Their original idea was to use Sith as the enemies, but GL said that they could not do that. So then it was back to the drawing board, and that is when they came up with the Vong. They figured, that if they could not make the enemy a group that uses the dark side of the force, then they would make an enemy who does not use the force at all.

So you see, they are not entirely responsible.

And for those who say that GL does not care about EU, I have a thread to refer you to:

hmm...I'm 29, Ive been a SW nut since 1980. Ive read 99% of teh post Ep6 EU(havent read survivors quest yet) so you must be talking f***ing s**t.... which isnt a huge surprise, really :p

ET, preshussss, well at least you read some of the books and are in a far better position to comment on why you dislike the series :) unlike others of course

Sithy, the YV are are species that view machines as abominations, they destroy machines and droids with religious fervour, rather than 'assimilate or adapt their usefulness' like the borg. I think your comparison is a little off :p

at the end of the day, to each their own ! If you dont like dont read it, and stop whinin because its as official as lit EU can get....so its here to stay :D

To make it "EU official" doesnīt make the story better.

It looks for me that a writer needed a very common name (StarWars) for his own story just to make sure that it will be a top seller.


The Yuuzhan Vong stories might be interstings for those people who like it but the writer should have used his own imaginary world outside StarWars.
The Space is big enough :-)

I donīt like the idea that just after one empire was defeated the next one shows up around the corner...just in time.
There is enough confusion and chaos in the galaxy for the new and weak republic to deal with.
And i still have no plan to buy and read one of those books.

I think the readers had gotten very much sick of the typical story where some issue threatens to split the New Republic apart, and the Remnant tries to use this to make a come-back, but that unites the NR and all is right in the galaxy again (don't get me wrong, I love those stories, especially Hand of Thrawn). Other than create a new enemy or reuse plot concepts, their main choice was to right a book:


For a long time nothing happened.

The end.


And for those who do not like the nature of the Yuuzhan Vong, read Traitor or The Unifying Force, there would be too many spoilers in any synopsis gave real insight into the Vong.

Hey guys, it's just fiction, exactly like the movies. I like reading the EU, and even the *gasp* NJO, but even if you don't, there's no reason to get angry about it. Just read something else. I think anyone who gets angry when someone else enjoys something other than the same things they do are being completely childish. Arguments are useless - just read what you like, and who cares what someone on the internet that you're never going to meet thinks anyway. :)

Thank you.

he he he. Rends, really, you should do some research before making silly comments. The YV turned up some 25 years after the ANH(IIRC).....The empire was well deferated at the end of ROTJ IMHO, thrawn was just a storm in a teacup..... :D One of the excellent things about the NJO was seeing the new republic(now called the GFFA) forge an alliance with the imperial remnant.

Also, if you have read Rogue Planet, a novel set during the time of anakin skywalkers jedi training, there is evidence in that book of events leading up to the YV invasion.

but still, you dont have to read the njo, but try avoid saying things without fully knowing about them, it will save you alot of hassle in life :p

Prime nice comment !

It wasnīt my plan to make a flamefest here!
The title of this topic just came into my mind after reading a bit about the YV story. So i wrote it.My fault.
Well iīm a Star wars fan since 1977 when i watched the first movie as a ten years old child. Star Wars is still part of my life and enjoyed me so often and now i see my son growing as Star Wars fan too :)
And thatīs what Star Wars should be. Enjoy us in parts of our life. For hours, days or years.

So i will apologize to all YV fans here!

Even if YV is not my Star Wars it might be yours.
I will accept it and i hope we can end this thread without beeing angry.

My take on the Yuuzhan Vong -

I don't mind the EU. I just consider it like various theories from various people on what happened after Star Wars, before it and all around it. I never take into consideration that it did happen after Star Wars. So what happened before and after Star Wars? NOTHING. Nothing as long as GL makes a movie about it. But it does seem a bit ironical to put The Republic back to where it began, at the feet of some Galaxy-ruling bastards.

That's it from me, for now.

i read vector prime and i didn't like it one bit. now people tell me that the NJO gets better after that, which is probably true.
unfortunately I can’t get over how much I didn’t like VP... I just can’t read anymore books in the NJO series.

i've never been a fan of star trek and from what i read from VP, and from what people tell me, that's what the NJO has become.

which is fine if you like that sort of thing. i respect other people’s opinions. just because i think it crap doesn't mean it is crap, it just means I think its crap. tastes differ, it would be boring otherwise.

thats just crazy and lazy :p VP is all about introducing the characters, places and objects of the NJO. To judge the NJO based on VP is just damn silly ! Thats liek someone saying, "yeah I saw ANH, and I hated it, I never will watch the other movies just because ANH was crap" and we all know they'll be missing out on ESB(which we all love), ROTJ and AOTC.... There are some excellent books in the series. Evem ones that focus on single characters, liek Corran Horn, or the Solo twins. The NJO has a depth no other SW lit effort has ever managed to accomplish. The finale, the unifying force is just amazing............. Luke fighting with two sabers against the YV badass.....sounds boring ... ???

a man your age should know better :p

SW lit EU needed a new direction, so many stories had been done on :
*clones of emperor, thrawn, clones of stormtroopers !
*mastermind warlords ... Zsinj, Thrawn
*Superweapons.... Darksaber, unused DS prototype, galaxy gun, sun crusher

*SIGH*

even the search for a new generation of jedi had started with the 'Jedi Academy' trilogy.... I just cant see how people can say "ugh ! its not SW !" Of course the njo is not freakin movie type SW, which is what things like the thrawn trilogy is a re-hash of... inevitably, it has to come back to the characters, NJO offered exploration of many great characters, ranging from Mara and Jaina, to Jacen and Vergere, not to mention Nom Anor.....In addtion all the old faves(Luke, Han, Leia etc) got a good run too as far as some examination of their characterisations... I really look forward to the post NJO books, because they will owe alot to the work that was done by the NJO authors...

exactly, someone can watch ANH and hate it and we can say, 'but try watching the others you might change your mind' but they wont because if they hated the first one so much, why would they want to watch anymore of them.
if you didn't like lethal weapon, then chances are you wont like lethal weapon 2, 3 and 4 either... even though by the time its got to 4 its a total different film, its gone from a dark action film to a Rom Com.

hmm, seems to me like this thread brought out all the baddies...

NJO... well, NJO is well worth reading, i have to agree with some of you guys like Phreak and Shok, when you say the same plot would start to get old...

It seems like that is all star wars has been about since the time of TPM, i mean, all these uprisings and rotations of government and more uprisings and more rotations of government...

I was aching for something new... NJO brings that to us, it offers a new insight to what the SWG entails, rather than civil war, it is an intergalactic war. People unite more under one cause, that is what NJO seems to be, a galaxy(although split) who are all trying to save their ____(is that ok ET?)_____ against a common enemy...
I do have to say i enjoy the more "classic" time frame and early EU, but this is refreshing,


READ TRAITOR

yub yub, commander

I've never seen him there <.<

*beats Sith with a nightstick*

The fact stands, NJO rules. You'll never defeat me! The NJO will survive!

my only problem with NJO was the death of chewie and the whole vong characters thing. They just screamed borg to me. They were just stupid characters :x

for many millenia, the SWG has been protected or governed by force-wielders, since they seemed all-powerful, but who will protect you when the force-users are nearly useless??? that's what makes for a good story

swamp=veterans. Almost everyone knows what (not) to do there . A day without a lock here is rare :D


Well "force powers cant be used on them", does it work like the ysalamiri (they neutralise force effects in an environment) or only their body? Cause else you could just lift heavy objects and throw em or smash em with it....

Jedi got pwned by "normal" droids as well. There's no need for a new ARCH ENEMY that seems to be INDESTRUCTABLE

Chewie's death tore me up. I hated it.

But it did open up new avenues and possibilities for Han's character, and gave the whole series a darker feel.

EU is EU. Maybe some people like reading about the young Solo kids get out of scrapes at the Jedi Academy and have fun time with the other Junior Jedi Knights. Maybe you want to read about the repetitive and eventually banal New Republic politics. Maybe you want to read new, exciting, and surprising plot's involving a third Death-Star and the Death-Star's big LAZER gun. Hell, let's even throw in some Clones.

Read what you enjoy. If you enjoy reading recycled bull**** about all of our favorite characters, stay away from the NJO. If you want to read something different, try out the NJO.

Anyways, the real point here is that eventually EU will probably get over the whole NJO thing and maybe some good stories will come out again :D

Just shows what little people know when they refuse to read on. The Vong may not be able to be affected by the force directly, but Jedi can use the Force to affect the surroundings. For example, Tahiri used the force to increase the pressure (or something, I forget) in the room she was in and almost managed to kill an entire room of Vong.

And the Yuuzhan Vong are far from INDESTRUCTABLE .

If you read on, they start to get their asses kicked. I especially liked it when the Lusankya showed up. That was awesome.

He he he. Chewies death was far too melodramatic for my liking, it almost made me giggle....ie. teh almighty chewie could only be killed by droppin a planet on him :p (I know theres more to it than that but y'know what I mean). But yes, it gave an *excellent opportunity* to explore Han's character, and highlight what a true wanker he is(IMHO) ! Leia 's whole damn planet got destroyed and she perservered. Han loses his furry buddy and he goes all kooky and off into the wilderness like damn Jim Morrison. LEIA ROXXORRZZ(especially slave Leia) :D
