Well, that's why I said it could have worked far better than a simplistic 'attack the Vong / don't attack the Vong' schism. For instance, we know there but 100 Jedi and billions of Vong, the question is not do the Jedi defend the Republic but how? The Vong are invading on multiple vectors and the Jedi and NR cannot stop them all, therefore they have to choose. There's the first flashpoint. Second flashpoint is the numerical limit - there are 100 Jedi, what is an acceptable loss? Can Jedi run a covert campaign of resistance instead of outright duelling their more numerous yet equally individually lethal adversaries? What happens when numerous Jedi die? Is that too big a loss to the NR? Is that sufficient to justify caution?
