Wish I could take credit for Roon, but it wasn't mine. From GEONOSIS my systems were Bakura, Desevro, Endor, Garqi, Muunilinst, Vorzyd and Yavin. Muunilinst was a bear. CLONE WARS was being developed while GEONOSIS was being written, so I had to scrap my original idea for the planet, which was that it was an airless world covered with ice, with all life having evolved around volcanic "smokers" in a dark ocean under the ice. (As might plausibly be the case on Europa.) The Muuns had extended the mountainous smokers through the ice and out into the vacuum of space, making them into metal "vault-spires" that linked up with skyhooks and space stations that now formed a ring around the planet. And they'd paid to have themselves bioengineered (by the Kaminoans or Arkanians, I forget which) into creatures who breathed air and could see. For better or worse I was in love with that, and got very worried about whether it would fit with CLONE WARS. Given my idea, it wasn't really a surprise to learn that it wouldn't work. (Heck, it would have been really startling if it had!) Oh well. The mistake was that I recast the idea (with an homage to CRYPTONOMICON about backing a currency) for one part of the entry, instead of scrapping it entirely and waiting for some other project. Wish I'd been wiser: If you're really in love with an idea, wait for another day instead of running half the idea out there to make yourself feel better. Plus "Muunilinst" is IMPOSSIBLE to remember how to spell!
