Fans that don't use their brains while they are writing. I follow one fic that takes place during and after Mortis. I had very few problems with what was going on during the Mortis stuff but they had Anakin design the Death Star after the events of the last episode. As everyone here most likely remembers the Death Star makes its first appearance in AotC as plans. It goes without saying that "this technological terror" has been in the planning stages for some time. How long is in question. The EU would have us believe that it has several beginnings but until the Maker says something than I will not take a side. Another thing; I expressed my belief the Bail wouldn't have sheltered a Jedi on Alderaan until Leia was old enough to follow certain instructions like run away and never come back or go here and tell no one who you are! They used examples in the EU, one of them dated back to Bantam Era, and said that Bail would have offered shelter to any Jedi because Alderaan was friends to the Jedi. Think of just a few seconds. If you were protecting one of the last hopes for freedom in the galaxy would you basically invite beings that could compromise her safety, her twin's safety, two Jedi Masters' safety and the galaxy's just because your planet was a friend to their order? I know that I would tell them to leave at the least. I might even shoot at them to get my point across. Bail was in some deep water over caring for Leia; something that could kill him at the very least and at the most take the lives of dozens of others. and for the record I don't believe that Bail told his wife about Leia's true heritage. The fewer beings that knew the safer Leia was..
