    The Fan Film : I.M.P.S. The Relentless
    On this show we will discuss the first episode of the fan-film I.M.P.S. The Relentless.

    Originally this project was to be the sequel to ?Troops? but over the course of writing and production, it evolved into something entirely different. "Troops2" was the working title of the production until the script was completed, and the project assembled. Chapter 1 of IMPS, ?The Rail-Runners - Davenport Gateway? acts as a bridge to take us from the ?COPS? format to the soldiers of the many branches of the Imperial military.

    You want to give a comments or review about the "Davenport Gateway" episode of I.M.P.S. send your comments (or phone number for us to call) to studio@swendirect.com or in this thread.

    Star Wars... Popcorn or Shakespeare?
    During this episode we will discuss the way the Star Wars saga was written. Was it supposed to be as a Shakespearian litterature, or just entertaining popcornish style?

    George Lucas once described the Star Wars Prequels as popcorn entertainment. But with Lucas trying to tell a tragic story of one man's decent into darknes, should he be writing popcorn or shakespeare?

    Do you consider the Star Wars films as having been written in a Shakespearian style or Popcorn entertainement?
    500 years from now, will George Lucas be portrayed as the Shakespeare of the twentieth century?

    The Grand Army of the Republic


    Of the many governing entities that ruled over the galaxy of the Star Wars universe, the Republic of the galaxy stood up for many thousands of years with the help of the Jedi Council.

    With all the brewing political troubles, the Jedi grew thin and a new order was needed to maintain peace in the Galaxy.

    Emperor Palpatine saw the need for a grand army of the republic long before is nomination as a Chancellor, and he made certain that it would be around for his times of needs.

    The Most Powerful Force User

    Light Side or Dark Side?
    Yoda? Palpatine? Odan Urr? Jacen? Anakin? Qui Gon Jinn?

    Who may it be?

    Of course, don't refrain yourself from digging up whoever you may think is the most powerful Force user.

    The Force is what gives a Jedi his power. It's an energy field created by all living things. It surrounds us and penetrates us. It binds the galaxy together.
    - Obi-Wan Kenobi -

    But does it really make one more powerful than the other?
    Bring in your research and prove your points during the next show's debate.

    Midichlorian counts are not research and they will not be actually taken into consideration during this debate.

    So, who is the most powerful force user?

    Have any opinion on this subject? Well, just send them (or your phone number for us to call) to studio@swendirect.com or in this thread in our SWD message board where we encourage you to register.
