    Actually, the mites were created by rogue Arkanian scientists.

    I can't believe anyone hasn't mentioned Billey yet, although I forget where he comes from.

    Anyone like to inform me?

    I don't know, but I'd guess that this will probably cover AotC.

    We'll hear about the Military Creation Act, but the Battle of Geonosis won't happen for another three days. ;)

    "We'll hear about the Military Creation Act, but the Battle of Geonosis won't happen for another three days."

    7 days actually, by my count (In the novel, at least)

    Hmmmm...TimeTales says that AotC takes place from May 16 to the 19th. According the novel, you say, the date'll have to be changed.

    Yeah, they're wrong. You gotta factor in all the info from the novel, the Boba Fett book, etc.

    The newest edition of HNN is up! The headlight is the AOTC opening scene, and it seems this issue leads to the begin of AOTC.

    Hopefully not. Though I'm starting to suspect that they'll just have one final update on AotC this Sunday. They did release the first issue on a Sunday.

    >>For the first time in 300 years, Cybot Galactica will manufacture droids that do not comply with the Universal Socket Interface standard. The company announced today that select units shipped later this year will instead utilize their proprietary Advanced Appendage Bus to connect limbs, heads and other appendages to the central processor.<<

    hehe...reminds me of the whole USB/firewire thing. Not to mention explains how 3PO...EDIT: spoilers removed after seeing Gandalf's post.

    The second one wasn't a full update, methinks, just a few updated stories a couple hours later. Or have they updated since then?

    I wonder if they'll be updating it each day for the next few days, parrarelling the progression of the events in AOTC?

    IMPORTANT! (to me, at least): Does anyone have the text from the article preceeding this one, about the attack and the blurb about Amidala's life history? If you have the pictures as well, that would be cool. I desperately need this, so if anyone can spare it, I'd greatly appreciate it!

    This was posted on TF.N's E2 section, however the part about her life history was not posted with it...


    Security and medical workers from the nearby Naboo embassy are rushing to the scene to investigate. It is currently believed that Senator Padmé Amidala is among the dead.

    As per safety protocols, the cruiser avoided the more heavily trafficked skyroutes as it flew from orbital space into Galactic City. The explosion does not appear to be the result of malfunction, but rather a deliberate bombing. It is too early to conclusively tell, but the explosion appears to have originated from the cruiser and not the landing platform, suggesting sabotage originating from offworld.

    Senator Amidala, 24, was arriving on Coruscant to cast her vote in the Military Creation Act. The leader of the opposition against Republic militarization, Amidala had no shortage of enemies wishing to silence her.

    More on this tragedy as it develops; paid subscribers to the full-feed edition of HoloNet News will receive round-the-chrono coverage and updates on this developing story.

    Is this from the HNN web site's version, or was it a special posting, like one of those alerts that Homing Beacon sends out to your personal e-mail account?

    It was on the web last night, but they replaced it with the story on Amidala's survival.
