    I do belive the line was "Master Vos" not "General Vos".

    He was slated to appear, ya know... in a very, ahem, explosive way.

    Well, he did appear in TPM, although it wasn't until the comics said he was Quinlan Vos that we knew who the background character seen for all of a second was. So at least he has appeared in the movies. To actually have his name mentioned, however, is certainly something. Does seem like more and more of the EU, whether it is stuff that was created in the EU or stuff created or proposed for the movies and then named within the EU, has been making it's way into the movies.

    I still don't buy that that was Quinlan on Tatooine, regardless of what the depth commentary on the TPM dvd says. Seriously, why wouldn't Qui-Gon have recognized him and more importantly why wouldn't his being on Tatooine have been mentioned in one of the many many dark horse stories he's appeared in? Its just another member of Quin's people as far as I'm concerned.

    I thought it was General too. Could be wrong though.

    It is Quinlan on Tatooine- in Stark Hyperspace War, Aayla says that Quinlan didn't want to blow his cover and wasn't aware of how desperate Qui-Gon's situation was.

    To be fair, he didn't actually see much of Qui-Gon and Obi-Wan - mostly Jar Jar and Anakin.

    Maybe he thought, "By the Force, Jinn's got another pathetic lifeform with him. I'll sit this one out..."

    TPM: it could also be that Qui-Gon didn't actually know Quinlan... (although from the comics it appears that Quinlan recognized Qui-Gon) - remember at this time there are around 10,000 Jedi - there's a very good chance that they might not have ever crossed paths or been officially introduced.

    out of ten thousand jedi, how many do you think Qui-Gon actually knows, especially one outside of his training class?
    (kinda like knowing someone who attended the same high school or college as you, but graduated a few years before you started)

    He knew Quin -- remember Republic #69 or #70 ("Dreadnaughts of Rendili")?

    He saves his and Obi-Wan's lives when their widdle stone-levitation trick went awry on that river. Granted, Quin was much younger, but he was close to Obi-Wan, and Jinn undoubtedly kept close track of those Kenobi hung around with over the years.

    To say nothing of the Kiffu-tats and the dreads. Not too many males from those planets in the Order.

    it could also be that Qui-Gon didn't actually know Quinlan

    Quinlan and Obi-Wan became best buds during the Stark Hyperspace War, and we specifically see Tholme, Qui-Gon, Quinlan and Obi-Wan having a good ol' chat.

    They know each other, trust me.

    [blockquote]and more importantly why wouldn't his being on Tatooine have been mentioned in one of the many many dark horse stories he's appeared in?[/blockquote]

    Stark Hyperspace War. Aayla mentions in the third issue (should be more than halfway through the TPB) that she and Quinlan were on Tatooine the last time Qui-Gon was there but were unable to do anything to help because they were working undercover. Quinlan Vos does appear in SHW, but it is a young Padawan Quinlan as the Jedi Masters present (Plo Koon, Tholme, Mace Windu, and Adi Gallia) at the start of SWH and Republic officer (or is that former officer) Jace Dallin tell Aayla of the events of the Stark Hyperspace War.

    I'm not overly knowledgable on such things but I had thought that Quinlan Vos was more of a information source, and mainly dealing undercover. Possibly on Tatooine Qui-Gon saw him but felt that he could find his way off himself not wanting to disturb whatever the council had set Quin to do on the desert planet. . . then again I'm fairly new to all of this, I just have an odd interest in Quinlan and read everything that I can. . . so more than likely im wrong and you shouldn't even read anything that I write.

    Qui-Gon never saw Quin (that we know of) but Quin saw Qui-Gon. He didn't help because 1) he was under cover on an assignment and 2) he didn't know that Qui-Gon needed help. In one of the comics he says something like if he knew what was going on he'd have blown his cover and gone with Qui-Gon & Obi-Wan to Naboo. I forget which one it was, so don't ask for a direct quote :p

    Aha, found the quote! From SHW pt 3, page 5:

    Aayla: Quinlan and I were on Tatooine the last time Qui-Gon was there. We heard about his death just before we left. Quinlan regretted not contacting him. We were working undercover and he wasn't aware that Qui-Gon's need was so desperate.
