    It looks like a romance novel cover.

    Which if that is what it is, that’s a fun idea.

    Maybe I’m the only one…..and perhaps because I’m single and doing fine…..

    But I just don’t care/like how they have added more romance to the Jedi through the High Republic era.

    I prefer Jedi whom stick with no romance, since being a Jedi is more important. Sure writing them having feelings is fine, but I don’t think a Jedi in this era should act towards them, especially towards a fellow Jedi.


    Jedi/Jedi love imo is better explored in either post RoTJ (like in Legends) since it’s about a NJO with some differences, or very ancient Jedi, like DoTJ/ early Old Republic.

    I wonder who the monarch of Naboo will be? Another young girl with handmaidens who all have crushes on her? Or will we get a teenage boy who is king and facing the dilemma for a change?

    Hope that a corrupt scumbag Veruna-style, since Veruna's own status in NU Canon is rather shady.

    I have never been a fan of the “no attachments” idea. Luke, Kanan, Cal Kestis, etc all showed how deeply flawed that idea was.

    I'd like to see how a teenage boy would do in a role. Maybe Palpatine's ancestor?

    Or Sio Bibble's one. Or maybe he is old enough to be this boy himself.

    Lol, Sio Bibble must over 200 years old by TPM. But wasn't the actor in his 60s at the time?

    I love to see the Nabarrie family. Pame's ancestors.

    Naboo's good ecology can do wonders. The real reason why Gunray agreed to invade the planet is because he wanted to have its effect for himself, Star Trek: Insurrection-style.

    Good news - there's a new audio production due in December 2024.

    Bad news - it's called Tempest Breaker featuring you-know-who.

    So, sadly, this one I have to pass on.

    Considering that it is near the end of Phase 3, there is a non-zero chance. Although I hope for the opposite, Redemption Equals Death is just so tiresome, so far Scott is doing good at elluding some of SW villain cliches with Lourna.

    Really? she has a freudian excuse and keeps getting saved otherwise 'people would be as bad as her'. So what cliches is he avoiding?

    I don't think she will be redeemed, she rejected that (fro selfish mind numbingly dumb reason), in Tempest runner. I just want her dead.

    I fear she will be 'redeemed' (with out showing an actual redemption) and live. Honestly she is just scum and show be removed like that.

    Her freudian excuse is not really an excuse, and she teams up with heroes while staying
    legitimately villainous.

    I kind of hope (okay, really hope) that they release some sort of complete San Tekka-Graf-Sparkburn family tree because one of my side hobbies is to keep track of family names and members in Star Wars (and other fandoms I'm interested in) and the High Republic has given us plenty of San Tekkas and Grafs to sort out. I haven't read Defy the Storm yet, but going by Wookieepedia updates, it's introduced a few more and that reminded me that we haven't gotten a full picture of the Graf and San Tekka clans connecting members introduced from Phase 2's time period to Phase 1 and 3's. Hopefully after Phase 3 is finished they'll put up something or include it in some sort of reference book.

    Random thought in the wake of the recent movie -
    wonder if Marchion is partially inspired by Paul Atreides, being an artificial messiah, with the Nameless somewhat taking the role of sandworms - dangerous creatures from a very hostile planet, control over them means control over those people who have supernatural abilities (thanks to the Force/melange).

    That'd be interesting. I know one thing: there may never be a faithful adaption of Chapterhouse: Dune considering that particular scene. It makes Invincible Ben and Tahiri interrogation scene seem polite.
