    There is a scientific term for that effect

    Good point. But Sidious has killed two Mandalores...

    ... so doesn't he have the best claim after Revenge of the Sith?

    That TCW is running out of ideas?

    Didn't Maul want to be "captured" by the pirates, though? So it's not really a coincidence. But no idea what the Death Watch was doing above Florrum. If this was a movie the EU would be working on a novel/comic answering that.

    That was one of the things that differed from the book to the show. While logically they could be above Florrum(though how would the Jedi or Hondo not have found them?), the show itself doesn't specify where they are found.

    You know in Star Wars when the droids of the father end up with the droids of the son, we usually write it off as "the will of the force" just as a way to justify such astronomical odds happening.

    I was a little dissappointed that all of the Black Sun Vigos were Falleen, werent some other species involved at this point? Or was this just a certain faction they took over?

    Well, They were more cosmopolitan before, but Maul killed all of that group. Faleen managed to muscle their way to the top and stay there for a while, until Xizor finally fell afoul of Vader.

    Xizor's lieutenants weren't Falleen. Actually, I remember Xizor being very unusual for his species, who were usually very isolationist.

    Though, come to think of it, Vigo was a Falleen word, which implies a pretty strong Falleen influence on Black Sun.....

    I of course love it when things in Star Wars are expanded and used in other stories, but I think Black Sun is something that got hurt in that process, along with a great deal of the believability of Shadows of the Empire. In addition to the already discussed annoyance of having Black Sun seemingly populated by Faleen, I have a really difficult time that Black Sun is a criminal empire that has stood for thousands of years.

    Wasn't it Tionese? Or am I thinking of something different?

    The Wook says it's old Tionese and cites Shadows of the Empire novel, page 36 as the source.

    I just remember in The Coruscant Night Trilogy that a few species were in charge and that the actual "head" was a human.

    My mistake.

    Edit: Hmm....earlier TCW material establishes Ziro the Hutt as part of Black Sun...and come to think of it, I believe he has the Black Sun symbol tattooed on his chest.

    I think it's one thing to have illusions about the endless Falleen being a creative decision rather than a reality of computer animated programming, but it's another to believe that it's that crazy for this one particular group, at this one particular time, being mostly, or even entirely, one species. Every story involving Black Sun is going to have its own unique focus based on its own needs, but the organization as a whole is more than big enough to encompass all kinds of demographics--even some that don't necessarily fit its typical mold.

    Yeah. It's a crime gang, so I've just taken this as akin to a crimelord surrounding himself with those closest to him.

    If you're a mafia boss, you'll surround yourself with Italians; if you're a Triad, you'll have Chinese underlings. So if you're a Falleen Vigo? Makes sense you'd have your old Falleen flunkies from back home too (especially with how "we're better than you" Falleen are too).

    You deny that Falleen are better than other people?

    This is where I would point at my avatar if it was still Xizor from before the boards moved. :p

    Zor, that's despicable. Go reread the Diversity Thread and say 40 Hail Warus.

    Did they really need to add the OT quote?

    Would it kill them to be original?

    Too soon, I'd rather the current arc panned out before doing the Sid/Maul confrontation we knew would eventually come.
