    TCW vs. Rebels debates are not allowed in the Television forum. As in, discussions that descend into TCW/Rebels bashing/gushing will be subject to Mod action. Contrasting the themes, story lines, characters, etc. between the shows is allowed (welcomed, even). "Versus" debates/arguments, however, are a deal-breaker.

    Those were actually not his biological kids. They were just adopted by him. It would not even fit timewise, as the kids were already at least several years old, while TCW went on for only few months, year max, at that point.

    But I would like to see some hybrid species in Star Wars, like a human/Twi'lek or Twi'lek/Zabrak.

    Well we already seen some hybrids. Dathomirian zabraks for example. My guess they have white skin color unlike their Iridonia kin.

    Never saw them as hybrids. More like just different looking Zabraks. Same as you have differences in the appearance between humans from various parts of the world.

    By hybrids I mean persons born from two completely different species, like humans and Twi'leks. If that's even possible biologically...

    I know the old EU touched on these subjects, but I don't recall anything in the recent new canon material. Yet, I do remember the old EU breaking down inter-species relationships and what was genetically possible.

    In Legends Twi'lek's and Humans could not reproduce, but at the same time this was also contradicted by Cut Lawquane's kids. In legends their biological father was also human.

    They are hybrids pal. Maul was only half zabrak. Do you remember who was his mother ?

    I'm curious about the obsession with hybrids here.

    Because some people (I admit it - me included) want to see a little co-pilot from Kanan and Hera... [face_love]

    More art and fan fic than you can shake a stick at, but it would be cool to have it happen in canon - and unless someone has full access to season 4 and beyond, there's no telling YET...

    So I was rewatching Visions and Voices and I just figured out what that whole pointless drama on Dathomir was actually about. Maul and Ezra could easily have gotten the knowledge they sought in The Holocrons of Fate. The only reason to draw it out into another episode is to get the Ghost Crew to Dathomir. Where the Darksaber is. The entire episode was Filoni's convoluted way of getting the Darksaber into Sabine's hands so she could wield it against Saxon. Talk about a complex plot mechanism.

    Yep. And it was smart. So far, Rebels has not had any minor plot holes; everything has been properly planned out.

    Nope because......

    1. It would make no sense. We can't reproduce with the non-human great Apes. So a human having a child with life that is not from the human homeworld, would be very strange.

    2. Kanan should be a dead man walking to make sense of OT continuity. I don't want a recreation of the common story of a soldier dying and leaving behind a girlfriend a child.

    Star wars shouldn't have natural mixed alien/human babies like star trek has. Unless its through some kind of experiment (which could not create fertile offspring). Human/near-human mixes Im fine with. Then again near-humans could not be considered true aliens, and just another form of Man that has changed over the years because of ancient human space colonization.

    You're comparing real life genetic reproduction models to a fictional cartoon series. As Pablo said, there is no point comparing real world actions/laws/events to Star Wars.

    well...
    I love Lom Pyke. and even though I created my OC/FC/self-insert character of the same species {because for me it's the only right way to imagine myself with him},
    I also like to imagine what our hybrid kids would be look like {if it was possible - Pyke x human (not cat)}.
    ~~~
    oh it's rebels thread....
    My dream is too see Lom ressurected in Rebels. Why not?
    they have ressurected Ahsoka in TCW with magic or whatever it was. Idk about SW lore ^⚆ω⚆^

    There's so much wrong with this, I can't even begin.

    Rebels - hell the franchise - has already turned OT continuity on it's ear, and Star Wars is full of orphans and half orphans.

    What you want and what may happen, could be very different. I WANT a good story. IF Kanan dies, I HOPE it's well done. If Filoni and co 'send him to Alderaan' to retire to get vaped off screen, I'll be very angry at at what I see is a cheap cop out.



    [face_rofl]

    Trek is not only earth based, but at least is full of pseudo-science (very loosely) - this is your opening argument all over again, applying real world logic to a fantasy.

    Let it go and enjoy the ride...
    PS

    Pablo confirms...

    It's nothing to get caught up on. For me most species in Star Wars that look human like are probably just a sub species of Humans so it makes sense for them to be able to reproduce. If your talking about species like the Hutts then no it does not make sense to reproduce

    Okay let's all move away from talking about reproduction and focus on Rebels again.

    Actually, Maul was a full blooded Dathomirian Zabrak. The Nightsisters were retconned into being a different version of female Zabraks. Basically, the female Ithorian Zabraks have horns, the female Dathomirian Zabraks don't, but instead they have very pale skin. Its not the most elegant retcon in my opinion, but they needed to somehow sort the Zabrak continuity mess some of TCW episodes created.

    And I'm not your pal, buddy.

    I know this board has always had hang ups re the 'S' word, but the Hybrid issue is relevant to the potential future of Rebels - indeed,
    Someone at Reddit was saying that in the episode shown at Celebration, they expanded on Hera and Kanan's conversation, saying it was an 'intimate argument'. They thought it could be either Kanan wanting to re-spark their relationship, or they were talking about having children - the possibility that Hera might be pregnant was considered. Pure speculation, but still.

    It really isn't. Rebels has never really focused on personal relationships, unlike TCW, and has kept away from romantic subplots. The main focus has always been the founding of the Rebel Alliance and Imperial politics of the galaxy. Heck, even the dynamic of the crew has briefly been touched on.

    So relationships, in whatever context, are irrelevant in Rebels.

    Back to pressing matters, when are TheSilentInfluence and I going to get the Dantooine in Rebels?! We want the KoTR music DAMMIT!

    Nope, just someone Ezra was supposed to ask questions to, in order to find Maul.
