    This post (if you havn't already guessed) is about the Supreme Commander of the IR: Gilad Pellaeon.
    In my opinion, Pellaeon (after the death of Thrawn) was the Empires greatest hope. To get to the point of the post however, I lived in hope for quite sometime that Pellaeon would in fact inherit some of Thrawns Genius and lead the empire in the same fashion Thrawn did.
    I think that it would be cool if Pellaeon provided the tactical insight into the Vongs defeat (he and Bel Iblis would make a formidable team). I personally think it would be cool to see Pellaeon finally gain some perspective on art, and hence allow it to provide him with a tactical edge. I think bringing back Thrawn, or providing a new Chiss genius would be absurd (almost as absurd as a reborn Emperor - again), but giving it to Pellaeon would be quite a fitting tribute to Thrawn and the Empire methinks.

    Think about it.

    But then you'd have a rip off wannabe. Next he'll paint himself blue and put red contact lenses in.

    Thank you Zaarin, for your incredibly insightful and constructive response. I am sure undermining my thread will go along way in bettering this community and definitely provided the foundation stone for a long and beneficial discussion. In the future however, I know I can do without.

    I feel that the character is tactically sound as it is, and has also proved that he know when to cut his losses. I don't really like the idea of the GA turning up like Thrawn. Let Pellaeon continue to develop in his own way.

    Pellaeon is an incompetent and arrogant octogenarian. He is not a grand admiral, nor is he qualified to serve as a supreme commander, as he has demonstrated neither superior tactics nor strategy.

    He is not, was not, and never shall be a genius. Genius is not something that simply "rubs off," as it were---how many adventures did Dr Watson accompany Mr Sherlock Holmes on, and did he suddenly become a master detective in his own right?

    No, simply having spent time with Grand Admiral Thrawn---who is a superior tactician but an average strategist---is insufficient to create a fleet commander from an executive officer. Pellaeon has neither the talent nor the temperament to conduct major operations.

    Incidentally, Pellaeon is not a grand admiral, and has neither right nor privilege to wear the white uniform. He is a fleet admiral, and a mediocre one, at that.

    You might want to try less starch in your undies, and maybe add a little fiber to your diet. ;)

    i'm with you Ringo Juna ;)
    some things i agree with, like genius can't just rub off. however, hanging out with a genius can certainly be enlightening. Pellaeon really is smart and he does pick up on a lot of things, but i think he's potrayed better in TTT rather than the jedi academy triology, and he's okay in Dark Tide as well.
    He shouldn't copy Thrawn, that would a cheap imitation, but that doesn't mean he can't be a good fleet commander.

    OH MY GOD!!!!

    i've seen the EU forum bash just about eveyrone (kyp, KJA, qui-gon, the list goes on and on. . . . ) BUT NEVER PALLEAON!!!!

    COME ON GIVE HIM A BREAK. . . . he kept the Empire together for years and years. that takes an incredible amount of adminstrative and political skill, having to fend off aggressive moffs and rogue warlords. give him a break.

    keep bashing corran or something, i don't care.
