    Fans of hard-hitting specialty-clone military literary action have reason to cheer as author Karen Traviss is set to continue the Republic Commando adventures (inspired by LucasArts' Star Wars Republic Commando video game) in a new mass market paperback due for release in spring 2006.

    Star Wars Republic Commando: Triple Zero - the sequel to Star Wars Republic Commando: Hard Contact - is set a year after the battle of Geonosis, and follows the continuing missions of Omega Squad. As the Clone Wars casualties mount, the commandos find themselves deployed on increasingly dangerous missions that take them beyond the battlefield and further into sabotage and intelligence operations in the heart of Separatist territory. Newly-promoted Jedi Generals Etain Tur-Mukan and Bardan Jusik are also catapulted into front line combat roles and find themselves identifying strongly with the clone soldiers under their command, who turn out to be anything but predictable cannon fodder.

    Omega Squad survives a close brush with disaster to end up in the most potentially dangerous hot spot in the galaxy - pursuing a Separatist terror group in the skylanes and underworld of Coruscant itself, known as Triple Zero in the Grand Army's slang because its galactic chart co-ordinates are 000. And, as any soldier knows, urban operations on your own turf can be the most deadly of all. So it's just as well that Omega Squad find themselves working with Delta Squad, and teamed up again with Etain and Jusik - as well as their legendary training sergeant Kal Skirata, and his secret military intelligence unit of "Null" ARC troopers, the black ops team that even the Kaminoans thought were too dangerous to unleash. It's a critical mission unlike anything any of them have ever tackled - and it tests their friendship and courage to the limit.



    Awesome :)

    Wow that sounds freaking amazing!!! "Null" ARCs? So dangerous the Kaminoans were afraid to unleash them? Kal Skirata? Deltas and Omegas? Plus it's being written by Karen?!? Spring 2006 suddenly seems REALLY far away...

    THIS IS GREAT! I loved Hard Contact, it was one of the best novels I've ever read! A sequel with Omega Squad again..this is exactly what I've been waiting for. Fi, Darman, Atin, and Niner are coming back finally. :D

    It's good to know that Del Rey is still willing to delve into the Clone Wars era. The fact that this is a sequel to RC:HC is also great news, and It'll be interesting to see how Karen Traviss writes urban combat.

    :cool:

    Excellent news.

    I hope that this one is good enough (and sells well enough) to warrant a third book that deals with Order 66.

    Wow. This came from nowhere. Especially since I asked her at C3 if she was doing another Commando book and she looked at me for a second and then said, "Ah... I write what they ask me. So I don't know yet!" Hahaha, but I'm glad she's doing this one. It sounds awesome, and she's an awesome writer.

    I also find this news tremendously pleasing, for the RC property brings something very different to the Prequel era. I add my voice to those who hope this is a very successful book so we can get a third that includes the Order 66 scene we're all drooling for.

    This is great news. I enjoyed Hard Contact possibly more than any other EU book. Really looking forward to more clone action, especially in the urban setting.

    Can't Wait!!
