    Jaded Skyhiker, imo you shouldn't limit the catogories just to books. A lot of us read the comics and books.

    My choice for Worst EU book ever is Planet of Twilight.

    If I can vote for comics to I'd vote for Jedi Academy: Leviathan.

    I love all of the Star Wars books, but I'll have to say "Splinter of the Mind's Eye" because, although it's an o-kay book, I dislike it the most personally.

    I am sorry that I have neglected the comics and I will try to include them in the voting.

    So do to my failure to acknowledge the comics I slightly changed the nominees for Worst EU Book to Worst EU Book or Comic

    Sorry if I disappointed people.

    You didn't disappoint me at least. The only people that bother me in regards to the comics are the ones who refuse to read them because they are comics and they're beyond that. That was nice, once it was mentioned you did something about it.

    My worst period is Planet of Twilight.

    Okay I am sorry I cannot resist to put in my vote for this category.

    Okay here is the host for the 2000 EU Award's vote for Worst EU Comic or Book-

    Planet of Twilight!

    I could not even get through the first chapter in that book. It was absolutly horrible ! I have read bad books in my life though this is TOP on the worst list. (sorry had to let off some steam there )

    Anyway...
    If it comes down to a tie or something I will disqualify my vote so it really is official.

    Thanks for the supporters of the 2000 EU Awards and keep on voting! (that was my corny line of this post )

    WORST!? Crystal Star! Ughhh! Wonder whatever happened to it.......oh, yeah, I used it as kindling when the furnace broke down!

    That was the only book I didn't finish in two days, no action almost died of sheer boredom.

    Okay we are back at the 2000 EU Awards. Before the break we introduced the nominees for Best EU Book or Comic. And now we have the winner-

    PLANET OF TWILIGHT!

    Due to the lack of voting for Comics we will postpone that cat. to later.

    So let us move on to the next category.

    Worst Book/Comic on Audio Tape

    Now for me personally I cannot stand those annoying things. There voices are terrible and their characterizations are way too off of the real thing.

    So I no there have been some really bad ones so tell me which one you hated most!

    Also, Come on! We need a few more voters!

    We'll be back with the results!

    I like the audio cassestes-even though the books are better(I want them in CD form) Dark Empire 2 was neat because they had actors doing the voices and I love the music in the background.(There is music in the background for all of them) But my vote goes to Ambush at Corrila. The book itself needed help.

    I have not listened to many of the tapes. I think you are right the voices are terrible.

    You know with all the computer technology we have they should run the OT through a computer and use a voice synthesis program to make the tapes sound like the voices on the movies.

    I'm not sure how many tape-listeners frequent these parts, judging by voter activity....

    [1]We are back and I am sorry that was such a stupid category. I was just curious. And I din't want to be yelled at also if I did leave them out or something of that sort. It was worth a try.

    Anyways we will move on to our next category.

    Best of the Bounty Hunter Wars
    and the nominees are-
    all of them!

    I am thinking about doing a winner's page. Sounds good or bad? Oh well you might see one.

    I read the entire series... at least I think I did. That's the one by Jeter, correct? Has Mandalorian Armor, Slave Ship, Hard Merchandise, etc?

    I'm a little vague on the series. It was pretty good, but it didn't stick out in my memory that much.

    I'd have to say, though, that if I had to choose, my favorite would probably be the last book in the series, only because that's where everything gets wrapped up rather nicely. Not sure which one is the last one, though. Again, hazy about where the titles fit in with each other.

    I only read the first one, so I'll vote for it. I don't even remember the name, so...
    Sheesh, I got here too late for all the good awards, like best novel. Err. Oh well.

    Akanah, without a doubt. I won't even go into why. It's just too distressing. The rest of the Black Fleet series was good, though. Mmmm... K-wings...

    Akanah without a doubt. I actually forgot her name for a moment. I must have blocked her out after finishing the books because she upset me so. She is a liar. I have no use for liars.

    Since this category's still open, I'd like to vote for Worst EU Comic. Of those I've read, it's definitely Dark Empire.

    Worst Girlfriend for Luke: Callista. I've never read the books with Akanah, but I didn't mind Gaeriel. I still cringe at the thought of Callista, so much so that when I hear people talk of Callista Flockhart, my mind stops at her first name, and I am forced to shudder.

    We'll be back after these messages.

    (On your screen is a blond-haired man with a goatee. Behind him is the Rogue Squadron flag. He stares earnestly into the camera.)

    Hi, my name is Colonel Gavin Darklighter, leader of Rogue Squadron. Yes, I know you're probably thinking, "Oh, no, not another political commercial." Believe me, I know how you feel. I usually try to stay out of politics. But the New Republic is facing a very critical time, and there is only one candidate that can see her through.
    That candidate is none other than Wedge Antilles. Wedge Antilles has worked tirelessly for the New Republic for all of his adult life. Wedge helped take out two Death Stars, was chosen by Luke Skywalker to lead Rogue Squadron, liberated Coruscant, and helped bring down many of the Empire's successors, including Ysanne Isard.
    Wedge also cares about the common man. His ultimate goal is the freedom and safety of all of the citizens of the New Republic. He works tirelessly on the behalf of orphaned children. He remembers what it is like to lose your entire family at a young age, and he seeks to never have it happen again.
    This is only the tip of the iceberg on why Wedge Antilles should be elected President of the New Republic. Look at it this way. Who would you rather have in charge, Wedge or Borsk Fey'lya, the guy who helped cover up Caamas and who would not admit danger was coming? The guy who scorns the advice of people like ex-President Leia Organa Solo? To me, there is only one choice. On election day, vote Wedge Antilles. Thank you for your time.

    We now return to our show.
