    Uh, I don't have it on hand right now, but wouldn't the name of the first Supreme Chancellor have been mentioned in The Essential Chronology?

    Nope, neither EC mentions much of the pre-Hyperspace War Republic. Essential Atlas and Guide to Warfare actually both cover the topic more comprehensively, but neither have any details on the first chancellor.

    I would probably buy a "Birth of the Republic" comic... but the only downside to it being: aren't all the founding worlds human? I mean, we can still get a very diverse cast of humans, and the occassional alien, but it could get boring seeing only humans as main characters after a while, and not feel as Star Wars-y.

    Are there any founding worlds that aren't human? Or were they in contact with any other worlds/powers that weren't human at the Republic's founding?

    No, the Duros and Caamasi were major alien founders of the Republic. IIRC, the Kihl were a major alien member of the early Republic as well.

    I hope it's a comic that finally reveals Cad Bane's species. That one's been driving me nuts for years.

    The earliest dated Chancellor was Chancellor Fillorean (c15,500 BY), but I would nominate Chancellor Signet Mezzileen as the first.

    I didn't think a Duros from Duro was particularly evasive.

    ...who obviously went on to invent a time machine car and use it to go back in time and found the Republic.

    Republic Commando 2? Or not, these are comics. Fine, we could check what era is now missing from the upcoming products, or see if there's a regular author who doesn't have anything to do right now or something like that, but making wild guesses is much more redundant and counter-productive.

    What about another Qui-Gon comic? This time joining the forces with his former master, Dooku.

    Having just read that book for the first time, I now get this reference. Timing!

    Oh yeah Sam Witwer recently did an interview in which he hinted at what Blackman had in mind for the story of TFU3.

    "Capturing Vader is the worst idea the Rebels have had."

    I thought that was pretty neat. Too bad we won't see it.

    Maybe.

    If we have a TFU III, I demand that it open up with a similar prologue to TFU 1, where you play as Vader. Only this time, instead of Vader ravishing the forests of Kashyyyk, you'll get to decimate a Rebel base from within.
