    I present to you, a quote from the fine piece of liturature that is Lando Calrissian And The MindHarp Of Sharu.

    "Silly, as the Toka could not have possibly ever have been contemporary with a civilization millions of years in the past, any more then human beings and dinosaurs---"
    "I've seen dinosaurs," Arun Feb interrupted. "On Trammis lll." The gigantic reploids of Trammis lll were famous the galaxy over, and a chuckle circulated around the table.

    Discuss.

    Reptillian species doesn't equal dinosaur. barabel's look like that, but they aren't dinosaurs.
    The problem with this is that it's referencing somthing that happened on earth, which doesn't exist in the GFFA.

    (Don't you dare link a stupid wookieepedia article on earth cause i know there probably is one.)

    I think Vader dining with raptors is my favorite picture along with the one where he's toasting with Ming the Merciless.

    Is that supposed to be a broken image? Because that's what's showing up.

    If that's a problem for you then there is a lot in Star Wars EU that is gonna piss you off. Especially the Lando and Han Solo adventure trilogies.

    Why are the dinosaurs extinct? Because they pissed off Kyle Katarn.

    Wookieepedians--like me--document what exists in sources, regardless how serious/silly it looks, and we don't do it to gain derogatory epithets on those boards.

    I could see the Star Wars universe having an "Earth equivalent" (maybe Coruscant) which went through the same basic history - hence the number of creatures that exist (or used to exist) in both.

    Agamarian beast, appears in Legacy #45. Obvious ceratopsian inspiration for the looks:

    Isn't the explanation that human spaceships from our near-future Earth went through a wormhole, that sent them to the distant past in a galaxy far, far away?

    I wish it was, but Alien Exodus was never published.
