    ::"The Imperial logo. Its a wheel within a wheel. It also implys to multiple levels of manipulation and going ons with the chains of command during the Rise of the Empire and Galactic Civil War eras.

    Also, I believe there was a mention of 'wheels within wheels' in TAS. The Jedi symbol being similar to the Imperial one, with a few extra treads on each wheel/gear/what-have-you."::

    I don't know if you've seen it but there is an "Ask the JC" on SW.com that deals with this. I'll post the thing below for those who haven't yet read it:

    :::
    Q. What is the symbol on the Jedi Starfighter, you know, the one that looks strikingly similar to the Galactic Empire's symbol?
    A. I'm glad you noticed! The symbol on the Jedi fighter is derived from the Galactic Empire symbol. The reason why will be revealed later.

    Cool, eh?

    Yeah. But its kinda hard not to already know that. We still don't know the reason, although I can surely speculate. We'll have to wait, like Mr. Chiang said.

    I just assumed seeing as people were still asking the question about the Jedi/Imperial logo that they hadn't seen Doug Chiang's (pretty damn ambiguous) explanation.

    This is the coolest site! I've been waiting for something like this for a while now...

    What a great new excuse for spending several MORE hours of the day on the Net! LOL! I just wish that they'd do a NJO version or something...ah well, AotC is good enough for me (for now)!

    Click the Nuna, win a credit!


    And it looks like ExGal must have gotten more funding after the Empire was defeated... :D

    Wow. This site is incredible. I'm actually arguing Republic statutes and Corellia's withdrawal with people on IM.

    I've found another place to spend all my time in...

    I love this site!

    Prince Xizor reference is great.

    What is up with the Squibs? Werid speech and then he aruges for 6 minutes for extra time just to say "you bet." And he called the Jedi "koovy." I don't think the Jedi should let him get away with that. Grand Proclamation indeed.

    CORRECTIONS:

    On 2:21, we reported on the secession of the Bimkall sector from the Republic. Upon further review, that sector does not exist. HoloNet News apologizes for any confusion.

    Some confirmations and new stuff about Dooku:

    I was witness not only to your practiced brand of diplomacy during the Sevarcos Dispute of three decades ago, but also of your former apprentice's noble efforts to protect the sovereign of my world....The former Jedi Master and Count of Serenno disappeared ten years ago, only to re-emerge two years ago at various Mid and Inner Rim worlds with a fiery rhetoric that has fueled the Separatist movement.

    And some other cool stuff:

    At the end of his address, Chancellor Palpatine named Bothawui, a neutral world, as a potential site for conference.

    Other good stuff:

    A Crimson Empire III reference, and all kinds of typical continuity stuff scattered throughout the articles.

    Anyone else think this "Baby Ludi" could turn out to be Baby Mara?

    I doubt it. The baby's Jedi name is Aris-Del Wari.

    So? Would Palps keep its real name after taking it? I'm not really convinced, but it is an interesting possibility...

    "So? Would Palps keep its real name after taking it? "

    What reason would he have not to? He destroyed much of the records on the Jedi, so its not like Mara could just look up her old Jedi name.

    Still, it would be kinda cool.

    Considering the high level of media attention that this story received, there would still be people who recognized the name, even if records were destroyed.
