    It debatable. Bounty Hunters logically could go before the Holocron arc because there is no point of setting up a medical station above a Separatist planet, and also Kenobi stated they the loss of the planet was devastating. In the time between the end of the first battle and the Wolfpack's attack gives Grievous plenty of time to set up a base and gather reinforcements. But also Kenobi stated in Bounty Hunter that they might attract the attention of Grievous, contradicting the Grievous already held the planet in his position and would be alerted, but it would be stupid if bounty hunters, Jedi, and pirates managed to slip by their defenses.

    I actually placed the Zillo Beast duology before Cat and Mouse due to the absence of Ashoka as well. The Clone Cadet trilogy too, but now I see the need to seperate those three throughout the timeline, especially now that Fives is the only survivor (hopefully... I haven't seen ANY of Season 5, yet, lol!
    I hadn't thought of Trespass, though.

    I really enjoy reading the posts in this thread and the attention to detail that all of you have spent to try and put these episodes in some sort of order. I definitely have been of fan of Season 5 thus far when they do an arc of 3 or 4 episodes because each episode compliments and connects to each other for a more enjoyable experience. Also, I'm happy to see that Lucasfilm is blogging about it. I noticed someone posted blog #6 on the previous page and I went on to find that there is a #7.

    I think the Zillo Beast duo works really well (hypothetically for now as I haven't done it yet) right before the Rako Hardeen arc because of the contrast in how Anakin relates to Mace/the Jedi Council. In the Zillo episodes Anakin leans towards the Jedi side in the Palpatine/Jedi disputes pretty much the whole time, but then in Rako Hardeen he's screwed by the Jedi Council and Palpatine is able to manipulate him because of it.

    I'm sorry, but there's no way the Clone Wars lasted only three years — no way. Just look at Ahsoka, Boba and that Korkie dude. They're a lot older and taller looking than their first appearances — at least five years older, in my opinion.

    Boba's growth spurt seems realistic.

    Ahsoka has grown from a 14-year old girl to a 16-year old one, and while I would probably say she has grown quite a lot in that time, there are people who don't grow much for a while into their teens then have sudden growth spurts. So it's not impossible.

    The official placement of the Zillo Beast duology before the Geonosis arce means that it was Hawkeye who died in The Zillo Beast, and not Trapper, who appears in Landing at Point Rain.

    What don't you agree with?

    I changed Bounty Hunters in front of Holocron Heist, because it makes more sense that the Anakin and co. discover the medical base is missing and the Separatists are there, which is why they then decide to attack them.

    I brought Ryloth forward as their is too long a gap in between Supply Lines and the trilogy.

    I also put LL, GI & The Deserter in between the Mando trilogy and Corruption duology because it's obvious there is a period of time between those episodes.

    I also put Sphere of Influence before the Boba Fett trilogy as Bossk can be seen in Jabba's Palace.

    No way, Ahsoka was 14 in season one? I thought she was like 12 or something? And you're saying Boba is only 12 in season two? I just can't believe that.

    Boba Fett is 10 in AOTC and 13 in ROTS. So he might be 11 at the beginning of the series

    Bounty Hunters really works fine after or before the Holocron arc. Just because the Seppies won that one battle doesn't mean the Jedi expected them to take the entire system.

    Ryloth works where it is as the people are clearly starving by the time the Jedi get there.

    The switcharound of the Mandalore episodes works. I mean, Padme might have gone there straight after Duchess. Is there any indication of time passing? I understandably avoid watching Corruption. :p

    Yeah, the Bossk appearance is a screw-up. Good switch.

    So I guess I agree with about half of your switches.

    Yes, she was born in 36 BBY.

    Boba fit in with those cadets, and they were tiny! Technically, those cadets were only 6 though, given the double aging thing. Creepy to think about.

    It's fine if you don't agree haha! Yeah, it's implied that Mandalore has changed, due to something said in the episode, but I can't remember what it is exactly as I haven't watched the episode in so long.

    Well, some of them you did just make sense in terms of continuity, while others are obviously personal preference. Like I said, there's so little time markers in this show that you really can just switch many of the episodes around and watch them in the order you enjoy.

    Meant to comment on all this sooner...

    The 7 weeks date comes from the Essential Reader's Guide, which takes the date given in Wild Space the novel, only that, and automatically assumes every other take on the war is wrong. This is a mistake, and rather rash. Several other sources have tried to give their own take on the timeline. And Chee himself has NOT said this to be true.

    To be exact, Chee said the following in Blog entry #1...

    No exact number was given, and the order remains ambiguous, but he said months. Not weeks. Yes, I realize this could mean '2 months', but it could also mean 6 months. Even 7 or more. (I doubt it'll be more than 9, but that'd be plenty). Chee has never personally said that the EU stories fit a mere 7 weeks into the war, and I doubt that this solution will be used when the show finally does end. Also, if I had to hazard a guess, I suspect that the show is currently somewhere between months 27 and 30 in the war, as the Dark Horse Darth Maul books clearly places its story in the '3rd' year of the war (which would imply s5 starts no earlier than 25 months after Geonosis.)

    Don't fret. We mostly know the order of the stories now. Figuring out the math of timeline placement is all that remains. Based on a combination of logic and evidence (which sadly means we can't take every source claiming a time placement literally because they all contradict), we can assume the remaining seasons of the show will probably fit in the last 6-9 months leading directly into RoTS.
