    I used to be known as "GoBlue92." I am now called "RogueNine," after Corran Horn (a.k.a Keiran Halcyon).

    Tell Bobafemme that I've finished with the Jedi Academy Trilogy and I'm currently reading "I, Jedi." What a relief, Mr. Stackpole has come to ease the pains from reading Mr. Anderson's trilogy.

    Don't worry, I'm still reading the posts, even though I don't really participate too much.

    I've ordered the new-release of the Star Wars Trilogy (Widescreen) because my previous Special Edition tapes wore out (*sniff*).

    Talk to you all later --

    Once again, I have to come to the defense of Jedi Academy. Great trilogy, folks. Get with the program..... :)

    Yeah, I always wondered that...what's so wrong with the Jedi Acadamy Trilogy?
    It's one of my favorites(2nd to the Thrawn trilogy, though).

    RogueNine! You are violating Evil Overlord airspace. You will be shot down and taken to a lavishly prepared dinner; of which you will be the guest of honor. If you refuse you will be fed to ravenous midgits wearing G-strings. As you can tell they are _not_ happy.


    However, did you realize what a pain it is to go change your sig...oiy vey.

    I was known as "GoBlue92" during the old forum dayz, so I took the opportunity to make a new name for myself.

    The JA Trilogy just wasn't the best. I mean, how many times exactly does Han and Lando change ownership of the Falcon? C'mon!

    I'll admit though, the Trilogy did get better, the third book pretty much saved the Trilogy.

    Hi RogueNine/GoBlue92!

    I agree on the preference to "I, Jedi".

    Hope you win the lottery so you don't have to work so hard and can hang out with us!

    They changed ownership as much as they saved their *sses in tight spots! While I hated to see one die, I think it was important that Chewie died. It showed that while SW is one hell of a great universe, it's a real place.

    I, Jedi - great book. Now, if you starting riping "Children of the Jedi", I just might split this winning lottery ticket with you. THAT, my friends, is probably the worst EU book ever written. Had possibilities....oh, it did, but the author stunk it up.

    After reading "I, Jedi," I get to experience "Children of the Jedi." Hopefully it's not as bad as you all say -- maybe it can pass by the Jedi Academy Trilogy -- I'm obviously kidding.

    Any reports on "Balance Point?" I've picked it up but haven't read it yet, no spoilers, please!

    Rogue 9, you will love Balance Point!!!

    Skip CotJ, and get BP. I couldn't wait to find out what would happen next. Loved it. And lots of good character development, if you're into that sort of thing. (I am.)

    For everybody that has read "Balance Point" and knows the news inside it - have you found the hidden image on the cover? Here's a link to the item at TheForce.net - but definately read the book, since it is pretty damn good. But for those that know the info - check out the link for a hidden pic on the cover.

    Thanks for the insights on "Balance Point." What's really sad is that I own all of the New Jedi Order books but I haven't read any of them (I know Chewie bites the dust in "Vector Prime).

    I'm just catching up on the Solo children's lives -- hopefully it'll help me out with their characters as they move on into the New Jedi Order series.

    Hey RogueNine, your getting close to my neck of the woods. Do you go up to Brookings much? I went to school there. SDSU. Anyway, the crystal star was as bad as the children of the Jedi.(I think) The X-wings series is still the best in my opinion. But as for stories with the original characters - The Zahn triology still set a high mark and I don't think there is a lot of books in the EU that has came close so far. Maybe the JA. I am still playing catch up! One day I will get to the NJO series. But right now I am reading the Black Fleet crisis triology and almost done.

    I just read Agents of Chaos II. Good book.

    Haven't read any of books right before it. (ie Vector Prime and onward)
    Found this up at the local Target. Picked it up along with Immortal, a Buffy the Vampire Slayer book,(also very good) and The General's Daughter. I have yet to read that one.

    Okay JediLars, where is your neck of the woods? I grew up in Rosebud (South Central SD).

    Hey, JediLars, we seem to be about even in our SW readings. I just finished Black Fleet Crisis: Tyrant's Test this morning and have started reading The New Rebellion this afternoon.

    Hey BF, I grew up in East Central SD (Wolsey) which is close to Huron. But my folks now live in Martin SD which is in your back yard!

    Well, I'll be. Our school used to take field trips to Martin to see the dentist. Pretty sad when schools have to bus kids for 1 1/2 hours for dental care.

    Madison is only about 30 miles away from Brookings -- I do usually head up there since I do have a couple of friends still going to school there. Hobo Days is always fun to attend.

    My brother currently goes there.

    Hobo Days was always a 7 day party. sometimes longer. Always had great fun, unless one of the Prof decided to have test that week. Blah!! I had friends who went to DSU when I was at SDSU so I did make my journey down to Madison for the homecoming! And a few other parties.
