Last night I was thinking about some of my favorite aspects of Star Wars. One of the things that came to my mind were specially trained groups. As I thought about several of the groups I found many of them extremely interesting. Some of the groups that came to mind were: -Stormtroopers (or more specifically Snowtroopers, Biker Scouts, Zero G Troops, Sandtroopers, etc) -Imperial TIE Fighter Pilots -X-wing Pilots (or other Rebel Alliance pilots A-wing, B-wing, Y-wing, etc.) -Emperor's Royal Guard -Clone Troopers (Republic Commandos, etc.) -Blue Guard -Rebel Commandos I left out Jedi because I think they are quite a bit different. Some of the groups I find most intriguing are: -Emperor's Royal Guard (Their development from the Blue Guard is interesting and the fact that the all-powerful Emperor thought them worthy to be his personal guard is very intriguing) -Republic Commandos (I think Karen Traviss has done a great job developing these units in the EU and their skill sets are incredible) -X-wing pilots (Mostly because of their importance in the history of the universe, their ties to one another, and their reasons for being part of the alliance) What groups do others find the most intriguing?
