*Rains of Castamere begins playing*
The Sith send their regards
The Fall of The Empire began a period of peace and prosperity for the Galactic Republic, and the Imperial Forces were nearly all eliminated, incarcerated, or assimilated. A few rogue battalions escaped to the Outer Rim planets, but generally caused no harm other than isolated instances of hijackings and theft. Until recently, even the politics of the Galactic Senate have gone smoothly. However, all good things must come to an end…
Way out galactic west there was this fella... fella I wanna tell ya about. Fella by the name of Luke Skywalker. At least that was the handle his briefly loving mother gave him, but he never had much use for it himself. Mr. Skywalker, he called himself "The Jedi". Now, "Jedi" - that's a name no one would self-apply where I come from. But then there was a lot about the Jedi that didn't make a whole lot of sense. And a lot about where he lived, likewise. But then again, maybe that's why I found the place so darned interestin'.
They call Coruscant the "Queen of the Core." I didn't find it to be that, exactly. But I'll allow there are some nice folks there. 'Course I can't say I've seen Corellia, and I ain't never been to Naboo. And I ain't never seen no princess in her damned undies, so the feller says. But I'll tell you what - after seeing Coruscant, and this here story I'm about to unfold, well, I guess I seen somethin' every bit as stupefyin' as you'd see in any of them other places. And in Basic, too. So I can die with a smile on my face, without feelin' like the force gypped me.
Now this here story I'm about to unfold took place back in the early ABYs - just about the time of our conflict with Thrawn and the Remnanters. I only mention it because sometimes there's a hero... I won't say a man, 'cause, what's a man? But sometimes, there's a hero. And I'm talkin' about the Jedi here. Sometimes, there's a hero, well, he's the hero for his time and place. He fits right in there. And that's the Jedi, in Coruscant. And even if he's a whiny hero - and the Jedi was most certainly that. Quite possibly the whiniest in the Core Worlds, which would place him high in the runnin' for whiniest galaxywide. But sometimes there's a hero, sometimes, there's a hero. Aw. I lost my train of thought here. But... aw, hell. I've done introduced him enough.
Long Ago, In A Galaxy Far, Far Away . . . .
Space! Stuff is happening. Cool stuff. Zap! Zoom! Wow! . . .
I have no idea what the first line of the opening crawl will be... I just hope it's something original.
"Gaius Baltar? Gaius frakkin' Baltar!"
"We were somewhere around Tattooine on the edge of the desert when the death sticks began to take hold."
And then we have to have a scene where a coked out Han shouts to Chewie: "We can't stop here! This is Jawa country!"
"Ignore this horrible Force..."
"It was the best of times. It was the worst of times."
A Tale of Two Planets
Five years have passed since the grisly death of Jar Jar Binks.
At some point the crawl needs to mention Grand Master Luke Skywalker.
I'm not sure the films use Klan titles like in the EU.
"ONE THOUSAND YEARS have passed since the destruction of the second Death Star, and Luke Skywalker is STILL the leader of the new Jedi order"
After the crawl, we see master Skywalker:
Well- it would add some irony to Yoda's "When nine hundred years old you reach, look as good you will not" statement
The evil leaders of Planet Spaceball, having foolishly spuander....
I'd love something along the lines of:
"The galaxy is at breaking point."
Just start of with a simple sentence, hinting at the notion of diaster and danger from the first few frames and you'll have me hooked leading right into some epic battle or crisis negotiations!
In a galaxy very, very, very, very, far away, there lived a ruthless race of beings known as . . .

What the hell is this "more options" thing and why, after less than 30 minutes, has the option to edit my post (above) suddenly gone missing?? ... ridiculous and really annoying!!
But at least we can "like" each other's posts
Welcome back to the boards. There has been a time limit on post editing since the last time you visited.
I know it's frustrating when things don't go as planned...
Oh, the irony...
