    Your Star Wars Picks

    Post  Drew.Rub on February 11th 2013, 5:30 pm

    Okay gang. The geek in me is curious, for no real reason, how you all would answer the following:

    If you could live in the Star Wars universe:

    Pick your time period: Old Republic, Rebellion/Empire, New Republic
    Pick your allegiance: Republic, Empire, Sith, Jedi, independant, crime cartel
    Pick your career path: Jedi/Sith, military, government, smuggler, gambler, tech, etc.
    Pick your species: You name it, it's probably out there.

    I'll start. I almost picked Jedi, but I think I'd rather just be a starship pilot, along the lines of Han Solo. I'd want to be an independant starship pilot/owner during the Old Republic, in the time before Anakin/Vader's purge of the Jedi. Being a Jedi would be fun, I'm sure, but I like the idea of owning my own ship.

    Well, if I'm being realistic, my answer would be "the most peaceful time period, the least controversial body of power, the career furthest removed from combat, and the species that seems to be happiest and safest. (The Star Wars universe is a dangerous place!)

    But if I'm throwing caution to the wind, I'll go with:

    Old Republic, Jedi, Jedi/"Chosen One", Human

    (Of course, I'll want to have a word with the Jedi Council about the logical inconsistencies of some of their beliefs, and in the end may have to go rogue.)

    Congratulations, Paeter! You are Count Dooku, perhaps the only interesting new character from the Prequels and far underrepresented in the films, in my opinion!
    I think I'd like to be a Jedi in the New Republic, after Luke reestablished the Order (although going through the Yuuzhan Vong invasion wouldn't be a gem) and, to be a bit contrarian, I'd like to be one of the less "good" species like a Hutt or Twi'lek (and yes, there was at least one canonical Hutt Jedi, though he turned dark, named Beldorian...do I get Geek Cred for that, or what?) just to throw the prejudices of the galaxy for a loop. Why can't one of these beings be noble and good?

    Yep! Just gave you +1 geek cred! Impressive, sir!

    Yup, I give you a plus one cred for that too.

    Most appreciated, all of you!
    I'm so pathetic and geeky about the Star Wars EU that I just bought the New Chronology (sort of a canon bible) and occasionally just leaf through it (I've long since read it through).
    It's a shame that, since the prequels and New Jedi Order series ended, the Star Wars novels have, with a few outstanding exceptions, just repeated the same formula; new threat arrives, current government unable to meet threat, government turns on the Jedi although they're the only hope to defeat the threat, Jedi go underground, Jedi finally defeat threat, government reorganized into new incompetent structure. Granted that's the broad outline of the New Jedi Order, but the first time is clever. The second is a bad copy and the third...the third is just depressing.
