Two cents. If the ST is about Reason (evil science, midi-clorian manipulation, Frankenstein's Monster) vs. Faith (in the Force), then I like the Hero in the ST to be Female. Also, she should be a Skywalker, not SkySolo. The heroine should be the direct descendent of Anakin and Luke. Also, an older son of Luke, who grapples with the Skywalker legacy and may even quit the order. No Dark Fall, but just Prodigal Son. His arc is finding his identity and fulfilling his destiny. The Heroine represents life-Force as she helps to defeat a Dark Side personified character, who is a 'Dr. Frankenstein' type character, giving life to long dead warriors of the Clone Wars and the Rebellion (Clones and Stormtroopers). An antagonist bent on subduing the eternal and material world. The Heroine would be key to the defeat, or abeyance of this unnatural, ethereal enemy. She is the catalyst for The Chosen One's coup de grace of the major Villain/Antagonist. Of course, I'm describing the end of the ST (Episode IX) Episode VIII is 'Some Damn Fool Idealistic Crusade' for Ancient Jedi (Bendu) and, even more interesting, Sith (Ashla) artifacts. Like an Indy in space. Two opposing forces seeking the MacGuffin, one with many resources and advantages, the other only heroics. The race ends on a cliffhanger and the heroes are scattered like flotsam and jetsam. Episode VII starts the new adventure of course. The characters have to be well drawn. I assume the galaxy is stable, but heading in to chaos. A new threat divides the Jedi on a course of action. Varying opinions divide the council and Luke is made to choose the course. He's damned either way. There is schism in the Temple based on politics, but some doctrine, and Luke's friend and long time ally (the 70 year old) leaves the Council, the Temple (he's not a member anymore) and takes with him a significant faction of dedicated Jedi Knights.
