"His STAR WARS “Jedi Academy” books were the three top-selling SF novels of 1994. His three original STAR WARS anthologies—TALES FROM THE MOS EISLEY CANTINA, TALES FROM JABBA’S PALACE, and TALES OF THE BOUNTY HUNTERS are the best-selling science fiction anthologies of all time. He has also completed numerous other projects for Lucasfilm, including the 14-volumes in the bestselling and award-winning YOUNG JEDI KNIGHTS series (cowritten with his wife Rebecca Moesta)."
well it was just luck of the draw that she killed off mara,  i was pissed off at Salvatore for killing off Chewbacca and then refering to him as the family dog but i still love his books

I feel that anderson did well on the books he wrote, but if i remember right weren't most of his books directed at a younger audience?

it was? I don't remember them describing Munin Skirata's armor....must have missed it. He gave the gold to Kal though.

Gold-Vengeance
Black-Justice
Green-Duty
Red-??
Blue-??

ordo and Mereel have the latter 2

where did everyone read what green is? i've heard it from several people, but don't remember it, not really...

Munin's armor was described in triple zero if i remember correctly, when Bard'ika was wearing it

Ordo and Mereel's armor where those colors respectively simply because they liked the color

lol...Tarfang. Remember Lieutenant Ketch? Wedge and Wes's ongoing joke, that was practically a reality a few times? Good times. Wraith Squadron was....eccentric. Yes. Quite eccentric.

yes yes it was "yubyub commander"

Is it wrong to not be able to choose a favorite? I know some people dislike Traviss and all but I really like this series. I recently reread The Cestus Deception (Hey I've had a bad knee and I read fast) and the clones in it aren't the same. I mean  there isn't anything wrong with them, its just different in the treatment, ie perspective is almost exclusively from non clone chararcters. Traviss' commando series to  me is just more comfortable. That all said I think Sev and Scorch are tied for my favorites. I like to think that I would be the right gal for Sev, as I seem to think similarly. (I guess i am fully nutty now).

well put. i've read it too--it was decent, but the clones were VERY different from KT's. and why would anyone dislike her? she's done a GREAT job with both the Commandos and with the Mandos--both virtually unexplored or known. I say kandosii, for doing such a great job with so little.

i think that we can all agree on that much smile

oh okay i thought it had something to do with the reputation/karma

true true,  but spending time with the ewok you would begin to understand what it was saying...

hey what do the stars above everyones avatars mean?

now that would be creepy, though it might be possible due to all the medical experimentation they did on 'alien' species, take the wraith squadron pilot for example

We may not have classes, but we have a language, and you could say that is just as 'bad'. The classes are just to help you learn it quicker, if you cant do it yourself.



Cool find. Your not any more of a nerd then anyone else here.

well the only reason i brought up the classes is that they actually cost a few hundred dollars last i heard to attend the class

yes it is, even thought it focuses more on the ARC troopers wanting a different life, but it also shows what the Jedi think of the clones,

Hey, it happend to the empire.

Can you imagine the explanation to the families:

Dear Sir/Madam,

It is with deepest sympathies that we advise that your son, TK4782, has been lost in battle. Do not fear as he fought bravely before dying. However since he was pummeled to death by rock welding Ewoks we do not see it fit for him to receive a medal.

Yours Sincerely,
The Empire

*Translated from Ewok*

Dear Sir/Madam,

i finished true colors last night, and i think it was a great book but i agree with Si Titran, the troopers in the cestus deception are completely different in the way they come across but that might be because they are alpha ARC, at least i think they are its been a while since i read it

Spartans of Star Wars, that's the Mandos.  I like the Mandalorins, simply, as Sev put it, there is no real dominant species among them.  Ech and every one is accepted.  They, simply put, ROCK!!!!

from what i have read in KT blogs the mando's are based more upon the celts that the spartans

the spartans where elitists and incest was common among them to keep the spartan bloodline pure... from what i have read

Rodians are natural hunters
I would have to say the mandalorains simply because of their culture and most of the more infamous bounty hunters are mando's
and about the Taung where alive around 3,963 BBY
this is taken from a web site i found "The Taungs and the thirteen native Human nations, the Battalions of Zhell, eventually battled for control of Coruscant. Though the Zhell were nearly exterminated in a volcanic explosion, they managed to drive the Taungs from Coruscant. Due to the two years of darkness caused by the ash, the Taungs named themselves the Warriors of the Shadow (Dha Werda Verda).

The Taungs fled to Roon, where they remained for thousands of years, until, under the leadership of the legendary Mandalore the First, the Taungs conquered another world which they renamed in honor of their leader, Mandalore. The species as a whole then also took the name, becoming the Mandalorians (or Mando'ade in their native Mando'a).

Eventually, the Mandalorian species became extinct. Much like the Sith species which gave rise to the Sith Order, the name "Mandalorian" became associated with a multi-species organization of warrior clans, who, regardless of species, adhered to the tenets of the Mandalorians. These Mandalorians, who were mostly baseline Humans, held the legacy of the Taungs in high regard."

I highly doubt it was possible for a Taung and  a human to produce offspirng, although i do not doubt that Taung would have adopted human children as their own and into their clans

For mando armor i would have to say it would be in the current style, of the fetts, but i would do a dark blue with forest green accents, and around the T visor

The color of mando armor is chosen by the mando, and from what i can pick up form true colors by KT is that the mando chooses the colors for their armor for their own personal tastes or how they plan to use their skills
