    what about the french word for earth,Terra?
    I think New Coruscant and Republika are cool, but predictable.

    Wedge 88 has the right Idea I believe in one of the novels there is a side comment about preparation to move the capital to the Empress Teta system. I think Bakura would be a better choice.

    Lets find a new planet and name it Jimmy and put the capitol there! Or name it Iseedeadpeople...that would be COOL, now. :D :p I think Coriella...or Bothawui...or Commenor...i mean, they cant really put it on bastion...thats empires territory, and anyway, doent bastion move every so often? To a different system?

    I say if you must name a new planet
    call it
    Terminus
    or Trantor(a good name for a city world)
    Maybe even Arrakus
    Minus tirth maybe
    or bettter yet!! Nodnol(after all the sun never sets on the nodnol empire!)

    Of presnet planets i say the "correlia system" would make the best capital. It's in the core, on all the major trade roots, and has 6 inhabital areas teh size of planets. This would make a new capital much more self sufficient since a capital physically located on centerpoint could be fed by the 5 planets, besides it has a defense system that can't be beat. It would be a vast upgrade over old corusant.

    I might added corucant may fall but it will probably follow a fate more like Rome after it's fall. It will be Burned(dissolved), sacked and reduced to ruins, but will continue on, just not as a capital.

    no you can't call it Borkcant,since first names are only very rarly used for nameing places.
    It would probably be something like "Fey'lar"
    or "fey'la DC"

    I like Jimmyville and Borskietown. I agree with who ever said it should be Bastion though. But Bakura is really the most sensible choice to relocate.

    How about Sernpidal? The Yuuzhan Vong will never look there!

    Okay, okay. Let's go with Bakura. Then the Yuuzhan Vong will go for the Ssi-Ruuk instead of the rest of the universe!

    Uh...if the Yuuzahn Vong sack Coruscant they'll probably clear off all tech. Then with Vong abilities return the planet to a nontech form. they'll rename the planet...

    VONGOLIA!!!

    Or that will be what the citizens of GFFA will dub their former capitol. As to where
    the shattered Republic will relocate its
    capitol...maybe 1. Tatoonie (kind of like Jerusalem), 2. Bastion (in alliance with former Imperial Remnant), 3. Geonosis (I know that's a loaded concept), 4. Unknown Regions planet (Chiss capitalize on the role as galactic civilization saviors in NJO aftermath?), 5. Somewhere beyond that GFFA via an Outbound Flight II mission (thus shades of Battlestar Galactica...talk about irony).

    Hmmm...

    Mon Calamari and Bakura would be good, but they're on the opposite lines of the Vong's third arm, and could be cut off from the major shipyards. Chandrila's too close to Coruscant, otherwise that would be my first choice. No point in moving the capitol a couple of feet from the newly sacked Coruscant. Bastion is already capitol of one government. In Hero's Trial, they mentioned that they'd either move to the Empress Teta system or the Koornacht Cluster. The latter would be the most interesting.

    I think for the duration of the war the NR will TEMPORARILY go to either Empress Teta Sys. or the UR.
    after the Vong War, i would like to see them set up on Chandrila, as that is where the capital is in my Fanfic Trilogy set 150 years after NJO. i pre-empted the fall of Coruscant, and decided that Chandrila had a nice balance b/w civilisation and nature, and was symbolic of a more peaceful spiritual future. Just build a large city sized senate building, and keep all other administrative centres either on Space stations or other worlds.

    just my 0.02 credits.

    Hmmm....maybe they could call the new capital Metallica? It could be ruled by Lord Lars, who's main duty in life would be hunting down those who share his music over the Holonet.
