    You know what would be great? Greedo as a Protagonist. Let's make the guy that Han sucker shot into one of the heroes of the Rebellion. Make people really feel something when they find out what happened to him.

    I just assumed The Ghost was a cool name, I never looked for hidden meaning. *shrug*

    IMHO there should be a ship in Rebels with a really Culture-esque name, in honor of the late Iain M. Banks, who passed earlier this year from cancer at the age of 59.

    They should have made a ship look like Vader.

    Ghost is short for Ghostsoka Tano. It's just Filoni's way of really sticking it to all the people who hated on him and his characters. Instead of Dooku's haunted hologram it will be Ahsoka's popping up throughout the ship calling everyone "Skyguy"

    So she sorta becomes one with this ship? Ummmm....... rrriiight.

    That's not weird and creepy at all... :eek:

    And now I have "Part of the crew part of the ship, part of the ship part of the crew" from PoTC stuck in my head...

    Didn't one of Luke's old girlfriends become one with a computer or something?

    Callista Ming could meld with computers and machines. She sort of became one with the Acclamator Leveler and destroyed a CIS battlegroup in the process.

    Somehow the idea of Ahsoka doing that to The Ghost makes me laugh and say "Oh hell" at the same time.

    I need coffee.

    It was in the novel No Prisoners by Karen Traviss. It is actually an excellent novel. She does a good job illustrating the utterly FUBAR nature of war, and the heartbreaking ****ed up situations that can arise.

    The part of the story that sticks with me the most is
    where a group of ragtag rebels, involved in an uprising against the despot ruling their planet, and who are a very sympathetic bunch of characters (one is a torture victim, another couple are a man and woman in love) with everything to live for and fight for, and who are definitely "good guy" characters, are thrown by a perverse twist of fates into a kill-or-be-killed confrontation with a group of six 501st clone troopers led by Rex and accompanied by a Jedi master. The outcome: all the rebels dead in seconds, no casualties among the clones or Jedi. It's actually quite depressing.
    But it's also something that could happen among the hellish fog of war. It's not always obvious who is a friend and who isn't, and sometimes good guys do kill good guys. Traviss put that in there. It was grim, dark depressing stuff, but it felt real and believable.

    You know I could never read anything about Callista Ming and not think to myself that the star wars authors who created this character must have also been xena fans.

    Should be McDiarmid. Particularly since this is post RoTS, Palps is installed as Emperor, and he's likely to be speaking in his "Sidious voice" much more than his "Palpatine voice" whereas before it was the other way around.

    Witwer should do it if McDiarmid won't. His Palpatine is far better than Curry's.

    Of course McDiarmid > all, but Curray's Sidious voice isn't nearly as bad as his Palpatine voice.

    I think this is good news because it shows they will be concentrating a great deal on the bad guys. People will get used to the new voice over time. If the Emperor is in it you can bet Darth Vader will be as well.

    I hope they aren't overused though, if they are shown to be on the losing side at the end of each episode it's going to greatly diminish both characters.
