god I hate all this hate and doomsaying here... patience, enjoy what you got. wait till I complain, then there IS something to complain usually! but all this crap is annoying me. and keep your facts straight: There is the Sword of the Jedi trilogy after Crucible... so stop the Denning bashing. he is a great author with flaws.. everybody got his tropes and issues and favoritisms..Traviss was great too, as were others the fans bashed away... see R.A. Salvatore! It's not like the great Zahn does not have his own issues.. I love him and his work but even he got a lot of flak from fans! We love some more than others, ok, but stop the blaming and do it better if you can cause those who complain have the same issues they dislike in their very own fanfics.. even worse most of the time. The EU will prevail.. sure it may get the Doc Who treatment, look different and wear a bow tie instead of a TIE-Phantom but honestly.. been there, done that. WE RETCONNED TCW and we can take anything they throw at us and do the same. If no official EU explanation/transition comes, we find one that is logical and makes sense and gets us drooling! Besides... why are we crying like babies about the death of the EU while Star Trek fans survived a lot worse and are still doing well despite all their losses! We can't look weaker than them!
