    First EU I ever owned was for sure a video game. I'm just not sure which one. Rogue Squadron 2 perhaps, or maybe the 2002 Clone Wars game.

    First EU book I owned (not counting movie novelizations, which I pretty much consider EU) might have been Luke Skywalker and the Shadows of Mindor. But the first EU book I ever read years before that was Zorba the Hutt's Revenge. Haha.

    I can't for the life of me remember which one precisely that I read first. My local library has a huge chunk of the novels between ROTJ and the NJO. I remember checking them out three to four at a time every other week. That was pretty much my life back then, reading the EU and school lol. I'm thinking it's probably The Truce at Bakura or The Thrawn Trilogy. Or it might even be The Courtship of Princess Leia. Anywho, definitely something around that timeline.

    However if we count video-games, then it's most definitely the first Rogue Squadron game on PC. Which I quickly migrated to Rogue Leader and Rebel Strike on Gamecube since I never could get pass that walker mission on Corellia, stupid tow cable refusing to stay attached XD

    The second edition of A Guide to the Star Wars Universe. At least, I think this was the first EU thing I owned. I still have it somewhere.

    My first EU books were the Jedi Quest series by Jude Watson. As you can tell by my user name, I grew up reading those books and the related series'. I was disappointed with the way Ferus was shown in the Rebel Force series. The first adult Star Wars books I read were the Thrawn Trilogy, introducing me to the post ROTJ era. My favorite EU characters are Jacen Solo and Ferus Olin.

    This and it's probably still my favorite "EU" book to this day. It has great info, everything from Victory Class star destroyers, to blasters, lightsaber tech, speeder bikes, all sorts of capitol ships and freighters, all the way to rebel agents and aliens seen in the original trilogy. It's just fantastic.

    But, then again, I have always preferred encyclopedias to novels.

    Pretty sure it was Star Wars: Clone Wars Volume 2 in 2005. I got Volume 1 shortly after. The first graphic novel I got was Star Wars Clone Wars Volume 7: When They Were Brothers. I finally got my first adult Star Wars novels in 2013 which was The Dark Lord Trilogy compilation.

    The first EU book I remember owning was Jedi Search and the rest of the Jedi Academy trilogy.

    For video games, it was the Lucasarts Archives Vol. II. Star Wars Collection pack. You got Rebel Assault, Rebel Assault II, Tie Fighter, the first three levels of Dark Forces, and the Making Magic CD-ROM that showed the production of the Special Editions. I played the crap out of those games. I broke a joystick (granted it was a cheap one) playing Rebel Assault II and Tie Fighter so much.

    The first EU book I recall owning was probably The Essential Guide To Droids. I read through every kriffing page of that book as a little kid. I learned about Dark Side Technobeasts, while my friends were learning Stormtroopers weren't robots. :p

    Rebel Force, but only the first book, and it took me a while to get the rest, unfortunately. I was in suspense for a while.
