    It fits. In all three books he's in, he suffers a lot of abuse. I've always envisioned Nick as the Xander of the SWEU.

    ...or is it the TV Tropes reference that you take offense to? :p

    Luke Skywalker and friends battle the evilest guy since Palpatine on a planet of melting rock that can simulate brains, minutes before the destruction of the entire solar system... written by Matthew Awesome Stover.

    A book proving that Stover is a pothead. (Sorry, I love you Stover, but I was like, da'hell was that all about?)

    Well, dude, it's like the Force has, like, a Light Side and a Dark Side, right? And Jedi just use the Light Side, right? So what if there was this dude who, like, only used the Dark Side, like he didn't even know it was a side? He wouldn't even call it the Dark Side, he'd just call it, like, the Dark. But we all know that the Light Side is totally more, like, righteous and copacetic than the Dark Side, so Luke and the bad guy have to have, like, a giant final battle, in like, this whole world of Light and Dark, and the Light will totally beat the Dark. I mean, if you just turn on a light, the dark goes away, right?

    Man, that would be so far out. Far out like a Snorgdarbflaxian low-orbit eagle.

    At least by Mindor he's only doing pot. Back with Blade of Tyshalle, it was LSD 24/7.

    Pffft. Drugs.

    You don't need drugs when you're on Nietzsche.

    Or possibly:

    Hobbie's prostheses are mentioned for the first time after Darklighter was written, and TIE Defenders show up five years too early, but at least Feylis gets a namecheck.

    (Still bitter about the Darklighter Hobbie retcon and X-Wing Rogue Squadron's cancellation.)

    TIE Defenders have been around since TIE Fighter, which took place shortly after the Battle of Hoth, and an Imperial starfighter squadron based on the Executor during the Battle of Endor, Onyx Squadron, was the first line unit to field TIE Defenders, which replaced its TIE Bombers.
