    I hopefully am not stepping on @AdmiralNick22 toes (Or webbed feet? ;p) when I do this but upon thinking about it, I wanted to make ANOTHER State of the Galaxy thread discussing the other major gap of Galactic history and that is the time after The Clone Wars to the Battle of Scarif before A New Hope.

    So this thread deals with the early rebellion, the rise of the Empire....Essentially Dark Times. A prequel to our Endor to Exegol Thread.

    Materials will include things like: Bad Batch, Cassian, Rogue One, Rebels, Solo, and maybe a bit of A New Hope....along with other books and comics that I can't think of at the moment

    We're about to enter a period were this era is about to have a major installment with Bad Batch so I think now is the best time to start this thread.

    Hopefully it will be as expansive as the Endor to Exegol thread...So please...Enjoy.

    :)

    Saw Guerra is the glue that keeps this era together!;)

    I know a lot of people are tired of us getting stories set during the Dark Times, but I think it has to be one of my favorite eras of Star Wars storytelling. Excited to get another perspective on the end of the Clone Wars with Bad Batch on May the Fourth, especially since we seem to be seeing
    the subjugation of Raxus
    per the latest trailer. It'll be interesting to see
    the civilian government be forced to capitulate after the destruction of virtually the entire Separatist military.

    I do hope we get see some CIS (are they the CIS in canon?) hold outs. Maybe even a canon Gizor Dellso!

    Yeah, they're the CIS in canon.

    Gizor Dellso, now that takes me back. Love the original BFII campaign to bits, give us an episode where the Bad Batch is hired by Dellso to move some cargo that's actually the Confederate infantry prototype you were tasked with destroying the plans for in the Mustafar mission.

    Thinking about it, the Bad Batch would be really well-suited for a Republic Commando sequel/reboot.

    I can't wait to see the empire come with it's ron fist on the galaxy such as CIS worlds as Raxus, seeing clones celebrated on Pantora, imperial occupation of Onderon, Mandalore and others.

    Yeah, it's gonna be excited to see loyal clones in the immediate post-war. I wonder if we'll meet any that took out their generals and if they've got any regrets, like in the Kanan limited series.

    The Charles Soule Vader comic had a moment with the Clones who didn't really understand what was going on with the Jedi

    Interested in seeing what the Bad Batch think about the Jedi rebellion. Was every clone issued Order 66, or just the ones that were serving with Jedi? Also wondering if Bacara could show up, since he leads his own elite unit and they've got his animation model already laying around.

    From a post a years old by now talked about Rex and Echo talks about Fives, so maybe they discuss order 66 and the jedi rebellion.I think the bad batch might start working with Saw Guerra on regular missions, there are rumors of Bo Katan coming witch makes sense as the show is supposed to show Mandalore and it's system planets, We could see some early mandalorian rebels before Gar Saxon comes to power.

    I wouldn't mind seeing Gall Trayvis and find out more about him along with his relation to Bail Organa and Mon Mothma :)

    I'd love to see a clone rebellion or something like that.

    Something I'll be interested to see is if the technological progression displayed in Bad Batch will align with Adventures in Wild Space and the 2017 Darth Vader comics, which had the Empire looking like they did in the OT as early as 18 BBY due to continuity errors pushing these stories closer to the end of the Clone Wars than had originally been intended. Meanwhile, the V-wing was still the primary Imperial starfighter in Lords of the Sith and Tarkin (both set in 14 BBY). Hoping that the show will let Republic vehicles in Imperial gray and stormtroopers in phase II armor linger for a bit, like it did in Legends.

    From what we have seen of the trailer, might be only the first episode or 2 episodes. So i think we quite in for a ride, I'm guessing an Ahsoka cameo at the end of the season with maybe hints to Darth Vader as during this time he's busy with getting a new lightsaber and hunting own jedi. I think they'll hold off Vader until season 2. Same with Inquisitors i think it's too early for them to appear, as we learn in the vader comic, they didn't begin hunting jedi until at least some time after ROST as vader had tested them and trained them. I think this first season will just be the empire slowly taking over planets and creating small rebel cells with more clones getting involed and away from the empire. I think we will get jedi other then Ahsoka in this show but after season 1. There have been rumors of known jedi might appear soon in Bad Batch.

    I'm gonna be curious to see how the transition from Clone Trooper to stormtrooper goes in Bad Batch and what sorta info we have now will support what we see.

    Well we know most of the clones get faced out, soon after the clone wars but there are still clones 5 years after the war and in active service but due to their cloning age they got old fast and must retire like one in the book Tarkin. also most of the strom troopers we see later on might be clones still as they hade what maybe under million clones ready by end of the war. I think they get slolwy faced out and we see more and more humans take over for the clones and we ger mix of clones and humans.

    Good thread but I got dips on the Naboo to Geonosis one should they ever decide to literally expand that ten year period!

    definitely looking forward to Bad batch and hopefully it will get a lengthy run like clone wars.

    I think bad batch can go for 4-5 seasons like Rebels and cover the first 5 years off the empire, can't beyond that as clones don't don't get mention anywhere past that point.

    Talking of Queen's Hope, anyone seen any preorder for it in the usual places? Seems to be strangely absent.

    I don’t feel like there’s enough material in that era to be honest. Probably going to wait, unless you want to do it?
