    Don't we mean the Russian Empire? I doubt Putin has Worker's Councils in my mind when invading neighboring countries.

    I like the idea of "Jedi Hunters" trying to keep the Jedi Order from being rebuilt. I could see them rallying the public against the Jedi, creating mistrust in Luke and Leia because they're the offspring of Anakin Skywalker. They claim to be doing it for the good of the galaxy, but they're really just out to resurrect the Sith and take over again.

    I always imagined he was one of the Emperor's "Sinister Agents". Like a hand of the emperor or inquisitor or something.

    I know! Maybe he is the main villain in Episode VII! Just joking all though oddly enough his page on the official Star Wars encyclopedia was recently deleted....hmmm [face_thinking]

    As with the destruction of Death Star One - the destruction of Death Star Two helped infuse the Rebel Alliance with further membership and resources (mostly in secret, but some openly). It might even be that by the time of Episode VII the Rebel Alliance is on par with the old defunct CIS of the Clone War era - at least in terms of membership and resources. The Rebel Alliance may be a New Galactic Republic in all, but name. Meanwhile the loss of the Sith Lords (Sidious and Vader) allowed the Imperial Inquisitors to take power of the Galactic Empire. But the Imperial Inquisitors want more than conventional power...they crave what their former Sith Masters had. To do that they hunt the galaxy for Force-enhanced relics. This distraction from hunting would be Jedi Knights allows for Luke Skywalker to establish a network of Jedi training bases. As with Luke's own training this new generation of Jedi Knights are put into service without the formal protocols of the old Jedi Order. It might be that the Rebel Alliance and Galactic Empire are now a match and that the endgame is in sight (or so both sides think). The discovery of the Force powered Mortis Monument 'space station' elevates the galaxy-spanning slugfest onto a higher level of consequence.

    Is that Plagueis?:p

    I know you hate me for this, but I like the Garindan post. That's the great stuff.

    It would be hillarious if it was Plagueis lol...

    ...all joking aside I think it's interesting that Garindan's StarWars.com entry was deleted recently. With rumors of the Jedi Hunters it would be interesting if he was retconned into an old Sith Assassin/Spy/ Inquisitor character.

    One question that kind of bothers me is if throughout the Clone Wars and now Rebels period the Sith utilized Inquisitor type characters, why do none of them ever show up in the movies...

    Knowing the end of A NEW HOPE, I'm beginning to wonder where Garindan's loyalty really lied (double entendre).:p

    We don't know their number... they could of only ever been one. They may have been wiped out by the events if ROTJ. I think if we are expected to believe there was an army of Sith like warriors during the events of the OT, I think that would be an unbelievable 'WTF?'. I'm sure that's not how it will play out though... I think the role of the inquisitor is just to demonstrate that there was possibly someone else, in Palps service, who survived to pass on the torch of the Sith post ROTJ.

    Because they hadn't been created when they were made?

    The retcon could be simple and reasonable -- Sidious and Vader wanted to deal with Luke themselves. There was no need to get any other sinister agents (SA) involved.

    The reason SA would become involved after ROTJ is because Sidious and Vader are gone.

    How do you know the Imperial dignitaries that accompanied Palps to DS2 weren't also Inquisitors?

    That is a good point...if you think about it the OT is a lot more contained overall in that we deal with a smaller group of people. In the PT there are a lot more involved parties and the Clone Wars takes it even further then that. There could have been plenty of Inquisitor type characters in the OT that were around the galaxy doing their thing.

    Very good point. :)

    Well, we aren't even sure if they are really related to the Empire or at least Palpie's empire. Most likely, they aren't. I mean, they are trying to resurrect a sith lord that isn't Palpatine.

    I think Darth Corvus is referring to the MSW rumour with the Jedi Hunters trying to both kill the Jedi and restore the Sith, i think ;)

    Though we already pretty much knew that, we just didn't think he was around during TPM.

    It's strongly implied in Palpatine's "opera house" speech in ROTS that he was the apprentice in the story, and Rick McCallum indicated as much on the DVD commentary.

    What about the Imperial Royal Guards? Maybe some of them survived the Death Star II?

    This Jedi Hunter's rumor better not be true. It is among the worst ideas out there right now. Or they better be working for a smaller adversary of the Jedi, such as the Imperial Remnant. I cannot imagine why there is no New Republic in this idea either. It just sounds completely pointless.
