    Nick Rostu and Kar Vastor were pretty underused for a force sensitive soldier and a very powerful force of nature. They were wasted potential in Shadows of Mindor.

    Honestly I don't know it is hard to find on the Wook, but it is there. I want to say it was either while she was pregnant or just gave birth to him during the NJO. I am going to reread the NJO this summer but I will find it then if someone hasn't helped us out with the quote from the book.

    I want to say Balance Point, Mara has a vision of having a son and his future. She wasn't in it. She assumed it was because she would die giving birth due to her illness.

    Particularly if Zuckuss gets out of the psych ward, 4-LOM defragments his memory banks, and those two get back together.

    I just realized how grossly disproportionate his face is.

    His head is also shaped like a light bulb.

    I think it is Luke's vision but I cannot recall the book.

    Yep, and they're still out there after everything that went down on Mindor. Definitely no reason they can't show up again along with Cronal.

    They were chasing Cronal, but I would rather see them go back to Harun Kal and help what's left of the Korunnai after they catch and kill him or capture him.

    I would love to see more of Wynn Dorvan, to me he is the most well rounded political character that has come out in the past 20 novels or so. Maybe a little more development with his friendship with Raynar Thul

    Zuckuss once had a vision of 4-LOM killing him.
    I would love it if they published a comic/novel about the two of them and in the end 4-LOM betrays Zuckuss.
    I do not say Zuckuss' vision has to become true... Maybe he can escape his fate because he has seen the future?

    Honestly, though, I think most of the NJO books characters reek of fanservice. Like the Wookiees. Not that I have anything against them, and they seem really nice, but it seems like the " 'baccas" have been included just to ride on Chewbacca's reputation.

    You're not talking about Chewie's nephew Lowbacca are you? He was around long before the njo.

    Not just talking about the current books, I'm talking about the fact that he was involved with Luke's Jedi. The galaxy needs to stopn revolving around a few families.

    Gotcha. I agree with you. There needs to be more fresh characters from families outside the elite circle.

    When was this? He had ruled out 4-LOM in Of Possible Futures. He determined that 4-LOM would not do so while they were partners or even after they separated.

    Kreia and Vergere. I love characters that are morally grey, and wish more authors would venture that way.

    Warlord Zsinj: I feel like there's a lot about his character that hasn't been explored, and he was highly entertaining and interesting during Wraith Squadron. The Rise of Zsinj would be an interesting story, I feel.

    Kyp Durron: Where did Kyp go? I never thought Kyp would have disappeared off the EU radar.

    Winter: Loved her in Scoundrels. That book made me realize how little I know about her aside from her holographic memory and associations with Tycho and Leia.

    Smugglers, smugglers, smugglers. If they're a smuggler, I want more of them. I want to hear more about the less legal side of a GFFA. I love a good criminal.

    I do not remember. I read it somewhere. Zuckuss thought (while meditating) that Dart Vader or 4-LOM would kill him in the future.

    Anyone else want to see more of Kiro, Rik Duel, Dani...
    The old Marvel Characters could still fit in the bigger EU.
    Kiro could be a Jedi Master in Luke's New Jedi Order.
    Han Solo could have run-ins with Rik Duel.

    Anyone else thinks Prince Xizor did not die during SOTB?
    I still think he will come back as a villain someday, leading Black Sun.

    I agree with other people that I would like to see more of Waroo, also Doran Trainer and Wynn Dorvan.
