    I gave it a 9, because I thought it was just a little dry at times.

    I simply had to give this masterwork a 10.
    It's unbelievable how much power of imagination went into this encyclopedia. And the little stories for each of the alien races really help to love all of the aliens! :cool:

    All I know of it is the Ackbar section, the online exceprt you can access. That alone was highly informative, especially his post Crystal Star battles with a returned Daala and Pellaeon, the Super Star Destroyers!
