I give it a 9.
10 for me.
I gave it a 9, because I thought it was just a little dry at times.
Please remember the WHY of why you're giving it a particular rating... please do not just give numbers...
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!
I gave it a 10. It was the first essential guide i got and i love it, particularly the little stories in each species
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!
