    Jaina is not boring if the you write her properly. I think Allston or Stover could probably get her right

    Though she wasn't my favorite character, I generally enjoyed Jaina for most of the NJO. Unfortunately, she kind of feels like she's been stuck in a rut character-wise since then.

    Yeah i hope to God she does not become Kyp. Talk about a character forgotten about. When was the last time Kyp actually dueled someone onscreen??

    When the authors used the available characters proportionate to what their role should be in the story in lieu of just using their pet characters.

    Word on the The Star Wars Timeline Gold page on Facebook from a reliable source in the Star Wars Action News Interview that Denning had he let slip that this was cancelled but backtracked right after.

    I believe it was Dark Journey, where he fought Jaina for dominance in their Master/Apprentice relationship.

    Yeah, I forgot about that. But then again, so were Kyle, Cilghal, Kam, and all the other Council members. Dark Journey was the last time Kyp was in a one-on-one duel.

    Well, I shall go straight to the horse's mouth and listen to this interview. To quote MacArthur, I SHALL RETURN and provide a transcript.



    I seem to recall Kyp fighting Yuuzhan Vong slayers in The Unifying Force.

    Okay, in the interview, Denning just uses past tense in referring to "...think of the Sword of the Jedi story that they had planned for Jaina..." "...they had a couple more stories that were plotted that I think would have gotten just the same kind of reaction..." When asked about his use of past tense, he says it was habit and he wouldn't know if they got cancelled.

    He says no one should read into it, except that he basically implies it's what he assumes.

    So the next post ROTJ book will be in 2015, and be ST friendly.

    with all new characters.

    what will everybody miss about Jaina, Ben, and Allana?

    They need one more book at least to wrap things up. Have Luke and the NJO fight krayt and the one sith if an epic book. I mean if the continuity is going to be destroyed anyways why not?

    Kyp did not do well against slayers, and I don't consider that a duel. But i miss his activity that we had in the NJO series.

    If the books are cancelled then I don't expect them to say anything at SDCC.

    Always tagged that as The Force basically saying:

    Jaina Solo, you went to the dark side knowingly, wielded lightning, vivisected living prisoners, treated everyone who knew you like complete crap for several and then thought you could get away it. NO, YOU CAN'T. You will be fighting bad guys for the rest of your life to make up for it.

    Although, given what has subsequently happened, it could have added: Oh and you will be a personal relationship disaster zone for the next 20 years! To quote Avenue Q: Sucks to be you.

    Well yes, I know it was meant to be the "Force" saying something. :p

    My point being it's running very close to being the tassels/"White Eyes"/etc all over again.

    Also @SomethinSomethinDarkSide I can't rightly post in this thread now without adding that's um.... bemusing? Disturbing? Bemusingly disturbing?:p

    You mean it should be something more profound than: You went to the dark side, now you pay for it?

    I never saw it as being a kind of hanging plot line in the way of the tassels or White Eyes.

    What is White Eyes? Wasn't that a Sith in Fury? And why is he a hanging plot line?
