    That'll be enough to stick this on the "buy as paperback" list.

    What happened to Aegis?

    I haven't got the book here yet. Did they describe the Alderaanian gunships in any way.

    They should be Rogue Flight by now, but there's a statement on the Rogues' wook article that's gotten me thinking...

    Following the evacuation, Skywalker, Antilles and the others continued to sometimes work as Red Squadron under Narra's command, like a rescue mission when they allied themselves with an aged clone trooper from the Clone Wars. The squadron later fought at Jabiim

    My guess is that sentence is trying to reconcile an appearance of Red Squadron in the Empire arc where they meet Able? So if there's already precedent for Rogue Flight and Renegade Flight randomly doing missions as Red Squadron, then hey, cool, no harm no foul.

    AC/DC ... 'The Razor's Edge':



    I wonder apart from the jizz/jazz music, if the GFFA features anything like ... this! :)

    That must be what Leia listened to when Bail wasn't around. If Jefferson Starship could canonize itself, AC/DC should have no problem.

    I don't know, sometimes I feel our galaxy would be a better place without AC/DC [face_whistling]

    Serious opinion on AC/DC: I like the Bon Scott era. Let There Be Rock and Highway to Hell are repetitive in places, but overall good. The Brian Johnson era? Bleh. They made one decent album. Then they made it again. And then seven more times for good measure.

    The bald guy second to the right looks like a bad costumer. :p

    The other ones are cool, though.

    Yeah, could have been used as, oh I don't know, a book cover maybe? [face_whistling]

    If they cared about book covers they'd still be using Dave Dorman.

    Struzan and Fleming did good work too, plus more recently, Sean Cooke.

    I agree with this assessment of the book. Though I will say there is one part of Han's characterization that seemed a bit off to me, but it was only in one small part of the book and I think if some wording had been changed it could have worked.

    Other than that I only have one gripe which is probably a me issue rather than a book or continuity issue.

    That dude second to right isn't showing proper gun safety.

    I know right, that picture so has a Firefly vibe about it and I thought I was the only one who noticed it.

    This reminds me of that one still image I've seen of the Twilight movies.

    While not quite the reality of the situation it does kinda make me wonder about the authors comments about diversity and such.

    Maybe it wasn't the intent of the author but that image certainly doesn't lend itself to the notion I've gotten that this book is trying to make the galaxy a more diverse place.

    I believe, canonically, Tarkin destroyed the planet because Leia hit him with a water balloon.
