    Think there's any chance Thrawn had a backup cloning facility nobody knows about?....

    In an Imperial coffin somewhere. Probably with a musuem on top.

    His body was placed into a coffin and launched into a star. The body of his clone was recovered, placed in a coffin, and dropped down the mouth of an active volcano. And the material for cloning him again was dumped into a black hole. He ain't coming back again.

    There is still the body of his clone. But it should be fish poodoos by now :p

    Oops, sorry.

    No, I don't think Thrawn should come back.

    I think that he should come back, along with anyone else who would make the series less depressing. For all we know he could have uploaded his intellegence into a computer and live within it much like Callista did. When did thise body tihng occur? I don't remember either of the disposed bodies...

    Calista used the Force to transfer her spirit into the Eye of Palpatine. Thrawn could never do this. He's dead, leave him that way.

    What the hell do we need with him anyway? This is the New Jedi Order, not the New Chiss Master Race Order!

    He's dead.

    Gone.

    And good riddence.

    I don't think he was bad. He never killed anyone for the heck of it. He was an admiral or a failing navy doing his best. I kinda respect him.

    He killed an ops officer for not reacting, in Thrawns opinion, fast enough with a tractor beam to suit his purposes and to make an example to others who might fail him.

    no, he killed the commander and let the tractor officer live, the tractor officer was smart and launched a bunch of... the mettle things that launch off and distract missles... and thrawn let him live. his body could be recovered from the galaxy's depth...

    No, Kier_Nimmion is right. The failure of the tractor beam operator resulted in the death of his commander, the ops officer in charge of that operator.

    Thank you. I had this debate with someone a year ago as to whether or not Thrawn was evil and I used this example, but to no avail. Of course, I also got called a racist because I said I didn't like Hutts. Oh, well.

    No, it was the operator.

    And although i prefer Thrawn about any other EU-Villain, let him rest.

    We had enough people return from the dead in the official SW.

    Thrawn will be back as soon as Zahn is back. He's too good a character to have him never return.

    Besides, Thrawn built so much redundancy into the droids guarding his cloning facility, don't you think he'd have a backup cloning facility or two hidden somewhere else?

    Thrawn is visiting the Great Art Gallery in the Sky. He was a cool villian, but I'd like him to stay deceased. :D

    There were two separate instances in which Grand Admiral Thrawn dealt with failure of tractor beam operators.

    The first instance involved Ables'man Cris Pieterson and his supervising officer, Ensign Colclazure. In this instance, Admiral Thrawn spared Mr Colclazure and had Ables'man Pieterson executed for a trivial failure; it should be noted that Gamer #5 states that if Ables'man Pieterson had been a Chiss, Admiral Thrawn would not have had him killed.

    The second instance involved Ens. Rejlii Mithel, son of the Death Star fighter pilot "Mauler" Mithel, who flew Black Two during the First Battle of Yavin. In this instance, Admiral Thrawn promoted Mr Mithel to lieutenant.
