Things I'd like to see in Future EU
 
The EU is open to many possibilities right now, and this is my opinion on what should happen in the future:
1. Jacen Solo and Tenel Ka's daughter should be named Padmé
2. Ben Skywalker should get Qui-Gon Jinn's lightsaber
3. The Galactic Alliance should at least be renamed either "The New New Republic", "The New Republic" or simply "The Galactic Republic"
4. Zonama Sekot should join the Republic and be represented in the senate by a Yuuzhan Vong.
5. It should be revealed that Anakin Solo didn't really die at Myrkr.

Why? Do they even know who Padme is?

Shouldn't he make his own?

I agree.

I hope the Vong fade into obscurity.

Please no.

Basically what Prime said, infact, exactly what Prime said...

Yes, they found out in Dark Nest I, with R2 replaying footage from ROTS

Yes, but it would be a good prequel tie-in

I agree.
yes

Speak for yourself, I liked the idea of the Vong.

Well what about if he appears as a Force Ghost?

Kensai 11-12-2005 03:59 PM

Anakin died at the end of the films, I can't see any reason to extend upon his story, or ferment piss into his own name...I, like many others, don't like the idea of the Vong, and do hope they never come back again. Typical lazy science fiction writing at it's premium :(

MachineCult 11-12-2005 04:46 PM

I totally agree with everything Kansai Rone and Prime have said, the Yuuzhan Zong are ridiculous, I hate the whole idea of them.
No force ghost, Anakin wasn't trained.
Ben should make his own.
The New Republic or Galactic Republic.

What did they see from ROTS?

I agree with you. Especially on the comment of the Yuuzhan Vong being ridiculous.

Speak for yourself as well Alkonium, a lot of people don't like the Yuuzhan Vong.

Mandalorian54 11-13-2005 01:33 AM

I didn't like the Yuuzhan Vong either.

Bringing Anakin back would be lame and kill all the drama his death created.

Who cares about Qui-gon's lightsaber? *shrugs*

Astrotoy7 11-16-2005 09:06 AM

I see no problem with the YV representing Sekot, they are its original inhabitants.

Didnt anakins ghost permanently fade away in the Dark Empire series... (nb. this was portrayed as the Sebastian Shaw Ghost ! :p)

I dunno, Im having a little bit of trouble with the Dark Nest Trilogy. I love all the jedi/force discussion, but the "ant people" stuff is just so 1950s B sci-fi IMO :(

But I havent even finished the first book yet :( been very busy

No, he was seen in the Unifying Force. And besides, I was talking about Anakin Solo, not Anakin Skywalker.

swphreak 11-16-2005 08:52 PM

Yeah, you people need to learn to read. Anakin Solo. He died, not coming back. He was supposidly a force ghost int he later NJO books, can't remember if it was just Jacen going crazy or if it really was Anakin. Been reading too much Dune recently.

1. I hope not. I'd rather it be a more Dathomir-ish name.

2. His saber is still around? Either way, Ben should make his own as do all the other Jedi do.

3. Eh... it'll probably be renamed soon enough.

4. Wouldn't kill me if it never happened. You'd think it'd take awhile for an alien race to get over generations of hatred and stuff.

"Nobody can kill a Jedi Ghost!" - Anakin "Yippee Ghost" Skywalker

"I wish that were so." - Qui Gon "and Tonic Ghost" Jinn

swphreak 11-16-2005 09:14 PM

That was retarded. Shame on you.

Astrotoy7 11-17-2005 10:51 AM

Kurgan ! what was that !!??

Alkonium, Anakins "ghost" is NOT in the NJO. It is a projection of him by Zonama Zekot. It cannot exist anywhere outside zonama zekot, as the sentient planet is projecting the image of the young jedi who was there as described in "Rogue Planet"

for this oversight your homwork : re-read Rogue Planet, Dark Empire and The NJO :p

I like the idea of young ben Skywalker being anxious about the force... maybe he'll grow up and just want to be a farmboy

@StarWarsPhreak "The Tooth......The Tooth! Remeber the Tooth!!" :p

There is some interesting stuff. I like that they are showing the flaws of the Jedi's views introduced by the NJO series, especially in Unseen Queen. Also the Republic/Jedi toubles are kind of neat, not to mention the serious Jedi infighting. About time some of those punks got straightened out. :)

Yeah, heaven forbid they used cliched sci-fi concepts and aliens :rolleyes: :D

But yes, they suck. At least Zaina is an improvement over the original characters. They are so cute when they make their click-click noises and complete each others sentences.

You want him to re-read the NJO? Isn't that against the Geneva Convention?!

The Galactic Federation?

:D

And just wondering what happen to Jinn's saber? surely it must be pretty trashed by now? anyone see obi-wans saber in A new hope? it looked pretty darn beaten up and thats probably just been stuck in a draw on tatooine for 20 years i dread to think what Jinns saber would be like.

Actually, the Galactic Alliance's full title is The Galactic Federation of Free Alliances. I think the Galactic Republic sounds better.

Prime 11-23-2005 10:00 AM

The word "federation" should never be used in Star Wars.

Thats a mighty fine sense of humour you got there.

Hallucination 11-23-2005 10:15 PM

I agree with everything in Primes first post, except for one thing: I want one book devoted entirely to the Yuuzhan Vong, including their suicidal addicting to self-cannibalism two weeks after the war. Thats right, I want a book about the Yuuzhan Vong sitting around and eating themselves into extinction.

I would do that, but I have a lot going at school. Maybe at Christmas :D

PoiuyWired 12-12-2005 02:54 PM

How about a ewok Sith Lord thrown together with the Nests? Actually a "Twookie" would be better, for those who knows what that is.

Jacen Solo Should be turned to the Dark Side (quite reasonable with the things he did to protect Tenel Ka), and would eventually kill his sister in a duel. And Tenel Ka would die in Child Birth with yet another pair of twins. Luke would die fighting Jacen showing little Ben the way.

Its history all over again, shadowing its past.

MachineCult 12-13-2005 05:50 PM

They have everyone turn to the Dark Side in EU.
