Hi, everyone. This is the first post from an on-and-off lurker. I've been working on a treatment for an alternate prequel trilogy. Here's how it goes... Episode I: A New Knight takes place in 30 BBY as the Clone War rages across the galaxy. Facing the possibility of collapse, the High Chancellor of the Republic calls upon the secretive clan of Force-users known as the Jedi Knights for military and diplomatic aid against the Clone armies of Greater Mandalore. A graying, 45-year-old spice freighter captain named Ben Cortel picks up a mysterious cloaked passenger calling herself Nellith. She offers a substantial sum of credits to transport a clandestine shipment of cargo to an uncharted star system in the Outer Rim. It turns out that Nellith belongs to a Jedi order known as the Jedi Sentinels, warrior-sages charged with preserving the ancient Holocrons. Nellith's Holocron is sought after for the forbidden power contained within. But along her journey she must contend with Clones trying to seize the Holocron from her, the arrival of a fresh-faced young Jedi Knight named Anakin Skywalker, and the disturbing possibility that one among the Jedi ranks has decided to use their abilities for a dark purpose... If there's interest, I can post the opening crawl and the first parts of the story treatment soon.
