Does this contradict the EU? Or does it save continuity as we know it? Perhaps that @fett 4 guy who asked The First Question was really JJ Abrams. Perhaps he was hoping to tear our love for continuity (and sanity) apart from the inside out. Or perhaps Leland threw a whole pile of EU crap on his desk and Abrams glanced through it. He saw Cad Bane, and he saw some Chiss. And he became very confused. And he showed the photos to George who was like, "Ah hell JJ, don't ask me this stuff. That guy with the hat is Dave's and that guy in the white suit is some really bad photoshopping." And so Abrams came to us for help. And this is why he hasn't gotten anything done on Ep7 in the meantime. Because he can't sleep, he can't eat; he's just obsessed with finding the answer to The First Question. Maybe you have unwittingly saved the future of the sequels, @Lazy Storm Trooper.
