    Notice Sgt Harkas' armor, which has light green stripes along his arms. Perhaps the armor's colors harken back to the Phase I armor days.

    I didnt think about it before, but loyalists ARE the major threat to Krayt's empire. We might be seeing stormtroopers fighting stormtroopers. Wicked.

    Im not too much of a military historian, but I am in the military, so itll be interesting to see what kinds of things John will throw in there. With the teaser, Im totally reminded of the post-Tet Vietnam days. Seems like most of the soldiers are conscripts (ie, dont want to be there). Did Trask volunteer or was he drafted? Hmmmm...

    Wow, pretty sweet preview. Like Trip (000) and some others, the use of the word "noob" annoyed me, but the Quarren Sith more than made up for it.=D=

    I like the way Trask is shaping up as well. He could become the Davin Felth of the Legacy era.:D

    Stormie chick: Awesome.=P~

    Stormie gear: I don't see much of a difference between this gear and OT gear save for the slimmer eyepieces, but I do like how the green stripes on the Sergeant's armor harkens back to the old Phase I gear.

    Darn. Here I was hoping that this was the first hint of a new DC/Dark Horse crossover miniseries.

    You guys should use the Star Wars phonetic alphabet popularized by Luceno. Bacta and Ion and so forth.

    Not that I'm aware of, although I'd be willing to bet Luceno has one somewhere in his notes.

    EDIT: Traviss seems to use it too on occasion.

    I wonder when we're going to get covers that don't just feature characters posing.

    Um.... Issue #6 Doesn't have characters posing..... so there's your answer.

    And maybe also Issue#5's real cover, since we haven't seen it, bt at least 6 will have a very different cover

    Have we even seen #6's cover? I was under the impression that "uber-Krayt" was interior art... [face_thinking]

    All the covers of the Broken arc will have Adam Hughs's "promo shots" covers. So... expect new covers by #7.

    And yeah, the temprorary #6 cover is almost certainly interior art.

    But it's a six parter---one TPB size. Outlander's team changed midstory; the change in art was subtle, but just noticeable enough. Broken 4's art is . . . I can't buy that. Don't mean to sound a snob, but what I saw was early 90s art and I've got standards.

    The "Tales of the Jedi - Sith War" had a similiar problem. Right after the failed attempt to rescue Ulic, the art suddenly changes completely, becoming a whole lot more... cartooney. And the dialogue seemed to slightly shift as well. Very odd and confusing when I first read it.

    Since there appears to be a bit of confusion. . .

    Issue 4 is NOT part of the BETRAYAL arc. It's a stand alone story designed to help with the ever dreaded deadlines.

    Ten creds the 407th joins the Loyalists.

    And Darth Maleval gets it in some very unpleasant way.

    Betrayal arc? Or Broken? [face_thinking]
    Will the cover of this issue change, and issue 5 gets the one with Konrad Rus, or it remains the same? DarkHorse.com lists both issue 4 and 5 with the same cover.

    Really, you've got to wonder about a writer who can even keep straight the title of his own story, eh?

    Here are the REAL facts:

    ? Issue #4 will have a different cover than #5 (it's by Jan, and features the Quarren Sith and a couple of troopers).

    ? The events in issue #4 take place more or less concurently with the events in the rest of the "BROKEN" (not "Betrayal") storyline.

    ? The story originally planned for issue #4 is now in #5, and our schedule will be back on track.

    ? One more screw-up like this and John gets put out to pasture...

    ;)

    So Legacy #5 is Broken pt 4? OK, makes sense now. Lets just hope there's no more delays.
