    I actually despise Tatooine Ghost. The only SW book I've read which I despise slightly more is Rogue Planet.
    But some people do like it. I just found it unnecessary, forced, and a self-indulgent attempt to tie the prequel movies into the post-RotJ timeline.

    Yeah, the book is good and I enjoyed it very much for the Squibs, but largely it is a a bit forced in a 'book retconning a new prequel trilogy' to make it somehow mesh with what was and is. Perhaps necesarry in a way, but still a bit heavy in the guided incorporations and besides a hinted probability no true overt Thrawn.

    :eek: Sacrelige! I haven't seen such unknowing since I first came here :p

    Mist Encounter is a short story written by Timothy Zahn that was first published in the Star Wars: Adventure Journals. . .issue four I think off the top of my head. [face_thinking]

    SPOILER: Anyway, it is the story that shows how the Empire, specifically a certain famous Star Destroyer Commander found and first met Thrawn on the remote world that he had been exiled to. He was found as the guy was hunting down another famous smuggler. I shall not ruin it for you further, but as an added bonus. . . Thrawn survives [face_shhh]

    It was only added to the paper back versions, the hard covers did not include the extra story at all. Although the story added to the paper back doesn't include the inked images that the Journal had included with it. Still it is a great read even without visual and tech references. Having said that, enjoy :D

    Also @GrandAdmiralJello , Don't be a stranger, we can always the extra posts, and better Imperial doctrin to view Thrawn through ;)

    Yea I had the hardcover, but lost it so I ordered a new one. It's a paperback so hopefully it has that story.

    My copy of Outbound Flight that I recently acquired included Mist Encounter, though I haven't read Mist Encounter yet, since I am in the middle of rereading my Bantam favorites, the X-wing series, TT, BFC, and HoT.

    The copy of Outbound Flight has Mist Encounter. Can't wait to read it.

    Also just realized I never read Crisis of Faith! I am slacking...

    I see you guys have kept the candle lit for oh so many years. Things will get verrry interesting after 2019 if Disney/Lucasfilm decide to put some of the EU stories to the big screen. I highly doubt it'll be Admiral Thrawn since it won't be canon and involves many of the PT/OT characters.

    First off, nice avatar! I am impressed that 20 years later and Thrawn is still going strong, though I suspect Zahn keeping putting out new Thrawn material helps. I hope they don't completley write Thrawn out of canon. If they do, I already decided it doesn't matter. Not like I will stop reading my Thrawn novels just cuz they aren't canon anymore...:p

    It would be awesome if Dark Horse would pick up a Thrawn series.

    I finally finished my rereading of The Last Command and started on Isard's Revenge.

    Wow, the last time anyone posted in this thread it was my birthday.

    So does anyone think that Thrawn will have a small cameo in "Scoundrals"?
