    New rule: if you use the title of the book in your summary of the book, you probably aren't trying hard enough. :p

    Or you're twisting the multiple meanings of the title into something brilliant...

    Before the days of shock deaths there were the ones with Luke's mother who turned out not to be Luke's mother.

    Lando goes on an adventure, Luke also goes on an adventure, and Leia is left to deal with a bunch of ornery aliens who are only slightly more tolerant than the Yuuzhan Vong.

    Leia gets drawn into the political web of one of the best villains ever; while Lando, Lobot, and the droids have the best random, unconnected sci-fi exploration plot ever; and Luke goes off on a pretty dull hunt for his mother that we don't know yet is total garbage, but at least it gets him out of his super-mopey Jedi midlife crisis where he tries to be a hermit and give up on life at age 35 . . . ever.

    Ackbar threatens to bite the head off a frozen ormachek while Leia to threatens to destroy Ackbar's wedding gift as a means of relieving stress, hilarity ensues.

    Yes folks, that is my entry. Deal with it. Stuff like that stands out. :p

    Mine too - although my entry was similar. I could never get over the fact that Ackbar lets himself into Han and Leia's bedroom while they are sleeping.

    I just love that Ackbar's concern was that he would catch his friends mating. Now THAT would of been awkward.

    What are you, some kind of speciesist? What goes on in Han and Leia's bedroom is a matter for Han and Leia. :p

    Ok, sure, in this case I'll admit I have a species bias. An Ackbar/Leia/Han threesome is pretty low on my list of things I'd ever want to see in the EU. *shudders*

    I'll stay out of the diversity thread, now that I've outed myself.

    If it makes you feel any better, I blame this thread for having made me think the girl on the new Legacy series poster is the half-human/half-fish offspring of the dude and Mon Cal on the image. :p

    The NR conveniently finds a complete Order of Battle when the one faction who would least benefit from its discovery starts negotiations with said NR; tension ensues.

    A racist species, an extinct species and a hidden cult attempt to merge into a contiguous story.

    Luke is lied to about his parent (again) and gets free scolding as a bonus; meanwhile Lando chases a vagabond, Nil Spaar is even better than Nom Anor and fleet junkies get a distinct representation of fleet action.

    Not to worry; Ackbar swore off human threesomes after that time with the Celchus.

    Formerly oppressed super grease monkeys develop delusions of grandeur and challenge the New Republic at a time when its leader seems incapable of being a high school class president and its greatest Jedi wants his mommy.

    The one with Hiram Drayson and Lobot being utterly awesome for the first and (sadly) second-but-last time.

    Luke leaves Yavin IV to become a hermit and decides that his best course of action is to leave his academy in the care of another hermit.

    Luke takes a stab at retirement, Han Solo is a stay at home Dad, Chewbacca attends his son's Bar Mitzvah, Lando takes up archaeology and Leia goes in circles with Nil Spar.
