    I don't mean to discourage you, I'm just saying you should read the Wild Space and Stealth novels first. :)

    I'll look them up in the near future, but for now I can take your work for it.

    But did you at least see my reasoning for the Bane episodes?

    Yes, I did. You can place the holocron arc eariler, because of the Choose your destiny book. However, for it to work properly, the Ryloth trilogy needs to go before them, because of Republic Heroes. Hostage Crisis can take place sometime after the Holocron arc, because Bane knows Anakin.

    Glad we've reached a common ground.

    Now, we just have to wait for Saturday to come by so we can start discussing where the Boba trilogy could fit in.

    But, it's still quite a mess. All episodes need to fit properly.

    We're an army of fans examining this stuff from every angle. Add to that tie-in novels, games, comics, episode guides and tons of other media, so I'm sure we'll be able to find proper placement for every episode as time goes on.

    Then LucasFilm will release the official chronology which will be as*-backwards to what we come up with :D.

    The droid in webcomics means it can't (unless they rebuild him).

    For the record, I'm just gonna come out and say that the Boba trilogy should be placed after the Zillo episodes, simply based on the way Mace speaks to Anakin.

    That might change based on some minute detail referenced in "Lethal Trackdown", but at this point it seems highly unlikely.

    Yeah, so far I don't see any reason to think it's set earlier than the airing order suggests.

    "Invitation Only"; the comic for "Hostage Crisis".

    Todo 360's the droid: http://starwars.wikia.com/wiki/Todo_360

    The droid is TODO 360, as seen in the episode Holocron Heist.

    Thank you for telling me, but you could have just said the name. :p I did forget that Todo appeared in that webcomic.
    So, the Ryloth story arc would take place before the Holocron arc and Hostage crisis. Then Hostage crisis and then the Holocron arc, so it's pretty much in its airing order, unless other stories will go after Ryloth or Hostage crisis, and I'm sure.

    Excellent chronological lists, I am using The2ndQuest's list as it seems the most popular. Has anyone yet factored in the last few episodes, do they just go in the end?? And right now I am creating my own set using The2ndQuest's list, well I will likely be redoing it come next year at this time. And then again at the end of season four and five :D And if it comes to pass that George gets his minimum of 100 episodes we will be seeing a season six of Clone Wars. So DVD sets will likely get quite a few revisions. It's going to be fun :)

    And also where is the easiest place to get all of the web-comics, I missed them.

    Bounty Hunters need to come after the Boba Fett trilogy because in Lethal Trackdown the two Monkey lizards are fighting and the blue one kills the red one. The blue one was with Hondo in Bounty Hunters plus when Ahsoka meets Hondo in Lethal Trackdown she says nothing to him.

    Also are choice your own destiny books really canon cause I'm sure that most people will not read them. Same goes for every other media. Theres already enough books about the clone wars so the series should only be told through the show otherwise if that stuff does to the overarching series then I'll be lost.

    You mean the ones on Starwars.com?
    Webcomic link here.
    You'll see it loading all the pages, but you can click on Menu (near top-right) and choose which Season you want to view.
    Then it should load all the pages and you can move to the beginning.

    That means nothing. As Aurra enters the weequay bar, there a red monkey lizard on the shelf.

    Yeah, I don't think that red monkey lizard died in that fight. [face_tired]

    Maybe there are many similar monkey lizards? We could have a whole web series: "Monkey Lizards; Red Vs Blue"

    First off: that would be Awesome.

    In other order of business: I doubt there is only one monkey lizard on Florum with that particular color, so we can't really put the Boba trilogy earlier based on that.

    Good eye on the Monkey Lizard detail- even though it doesn't seem to pan out as a concrete continuity link, that's a creative point of reference.

    A shame, then, because then when people ask why episodes are in a certain order, we could have just said "Monkey lizard did it" ;)


    I'm sure elements of those stories are canon, even if specific outcomes are not. How many people will read/play/watch a media source isn't a factor as far as canon goes, generally. However I'm not familiar with the details of that series so I can't comment any further.

    There's also some issues with early TCW material being based on production order of stories, even though those episodes ultimately get shifted around by the airing order and other sources (Droid duo/Malevolence/Nute trilogy in particular).



    As far as I can tell, the last few eps don't have any indication that they need to be set earlier than the airing order indicates.

    Obviously this could change next season, of course ;)

    However, if we still give production order some vague amount of indication of unofficial intent, it is possible the Fett trilogy could go before the Zillo Duo, going by their production numbers.

    Impossible, Quest, because Ponds is killed by Aurra Sing in Lethal Trackdown and he's alive and well in The Zillo Beast.
