Ok, after suffering through the amazingly long debate in the "Canon: the last word" thread, it once again becomes painfully obvious to me that even though almost all written star wars work is in the continuity, not all of it really "fits". there is much contradiction and the feel of the stories (atmosphere) is different in each medium (comics, novels, childrens storybooks, videogames). On the other hand, there are several hundred Star Trek prose novels. the novels are not considered canon and often contradict themselves. There is no continuity between most of the novels. Star Trek novels have become Adventure of the Week for the crew of the Enterprise. My question is this: How close is SW EU from becoming the disjointed, tangled mess that Star Trek fans have long suffered through? Is EU just the "Adventure of the Week" for the Star Warriors?? How could one group of people realistically have that many adventures and always play the pivotal role in the history of a galaxy?
