    I had to give the NJO a second chance because I thought the moon falling on Chewie was so stupid the first time.

    The second time I focused on Chewie proverbially telling the moon to go **** itself, and Han's heartbreaking reaction to Chewie's death, and I was sold.

    I did not like Mara but I thought Han, Leia and Luke were well done, and I really like Jaina (pre-Jag Fel) and Anakin.

    It's too bad TFA gave us one offspring for Han and Leia, and he was the worst version of Jacen and AOTC Anakin Skywalker with a shot of prednisone.

    I liked Finn as much or more than any NJO character though, and Rey has the potential to be a non-Fel'ed Jaina.

    Well there might be new people . Look I know not everyone likes the vong but I though they were a brilliant , complex villain. I did not like Luke looking weaker than Kyp but that was fixed in the last 1/4 of the series. I was not always thrilled with Luke's inaction but I understood it in context of what the vong represented and what Luke saw in himself as of Specter of the Past .

    There's no easy way to save him. (legend Luke doesn't need saving).

    The Luke Skywalker in TFA is now CANON.

    We can't save Ciena, we can't save Clarice Starling. Now we are all failing. Damn.

    Look at what they made us give.

    Some characters just wind up incapacitated. It sucks but it's reassuring to know alternate universes exist.

    I'm talking spiritually. Not physically.
    I mean, physically Clarice Starling, Luke, Tahiri, etc are all fine. What I'm talking about is deeper than that.

    Edit:

    And Thane is exactly whom I'm trying to save Ciena from.

    I would expect it to become more active towards the end of October as that's when the Legends of Luke Skywalker comes out.

    There's not much to talk of with Luke in Marvel as it's all between eps 4/5.

    In a way, if TLJ actually can succeed in fixing everything - long shot but it could happen - would this thread still be needed?

    I'd really like a source for this...I'm fairly certain this rumor is bull****.

    Ok. I'll concede but also add that it is nuanced. You need to know your characters to map out a story. And there is other evidence as to developed backgrounds. I think they know who Snoke is and Rey's lineage. But neither of those things are story.

    Story and background are not the same thing.

    In fact, Mark Hamill asked the writer what Luke's relationship to Snoke was and the guy said, "No idea."

    Man, it's like Sisko vs Dukat around here!

    Evidence?

    Evidence? Evidence! He wants evidence !?

    (Waltz remains an excellent DS9 ep)

    I absolutely do not get that reference. (Didn't watch much DS9.)

    Pity, it's one of the best Treks. Waltz was a sort of sequel to the 1st series ep Duet, which was more-or-less a dialogue between two people, which Waltz also was, but in series 6.

    If you haven't watched the show there's no way for me to really convey what made both eps so good, so would recommend you take a look for yourself.

    Rian said Snoke is not a character he particularly gets into in TLJ. Maybe we'll get Snoke's past in a book/comic or in the last movie

    Snoke's origin will be in ep 9, possibly expanded on elsewhere later but that's where it'll be first.

    Of course, if it turns out Snoke began life in a parallel universe as an experimented on ape.....

    Maybe Snoke will just be like Palpatine in ESB and ROTJ. He is the big bad. But really, in the OT, there was no backstory. No one in the 70's and 80's were like. Geez, I wonder who that Emperor really is... (and we didn't even know he was named Palpatine. Just some old guy in a black robe....
