    Hello fellow Star Wars fans and friends alike! I am rogue_leader1 and I am new to town. I have been a Star Wars fan for most of my life, and have finally decided to dabble in forums. Mostly because my excessive Star Wars conversations fall on deaf ears, because most of my friends IRL are not super Star Wars fans like myself (and all of you). The OT is my fav trilogy and I believe ESB is the greatest movie of all time, and no one will ever be able to convince me otherwise. In my spare time I like to add to my slowly growing lego collection and read. I've currently read a few canon books but hope to get into the EU eventually. I hope to slowly learn my way around here and learn some interesting new things.

    Hi! I also love the OT; ROTJ especially. EU Legends is where my heart-canon lies. You will find many fun sub-forums: Role Playing and Fanfiction. :cool:

    Hello, @rogue_leader1!

    * Looks around *
    Star... Wars? What's this Star Wars you speak of? I know Star Trek! Picard is the best captain ever!

    I kid. I read most of the Legends books before the Disnification of SW. I just finished the last of the nucanon. Please feel free to discuss and geek out on here as much as you'd like. You'll find fellow EU / Legends fans in the EUC.

    Hello! Welcome to the fun. You should definitely get into the EU and read the Rogue Squadron novels. :)

    Let me know if you need help finding your way around.

    I can relate to most of my IRL friends not being into Star Wars other than the TV shows and movies.

    Welcome to the forums!

    I grew up reading the Legends books. My favorite author still is Tim Zahn. Michael Stackpole is a close second.

    They are excellent reads. World building and first rate character development.

    Welcome! As someone who has joined only a few months ago, I think I can say that you will be able to talk about anything and everything Star Wars in these forums. They are vast, and they will probably be more than sufficient for you to have any conversation!

    Where are you from, what do you think of the other Star Wars movies, and when you say the EU, do you mean the old Legends EU, or the present canon novels? Have a good one :)
