Topic: Triple Zero

Who has read TZ???? I just got it on Friday night(!) and then my mom took it away cause I had a report to do. So, I finished the report on Saturday (staying up till 11:30 on Friday night and sacrificing an episode of Emergency! I might add) and FINALLY got TZ!!! That night I read seven chapters and realized that I was almost halfway through the book. So, I said to myself, I'll just have to pace myself by only reading one chapter a day. Boy, am I a di'kut....

Re: Triple Zero

*Possible spoilers*



I got it the day it came out, but I still haven't finished it with school and work and all... I do like to pace myself though, and I'll usually read the same page or paragraph a few times if it's a major event so I don't forget it, lol. Yeah, I do that with every book I read. Anyway, I'm on chapter 13, and I'd love to have a discussion with you and other members who have read the book! It is so good, it's almost like a fanfiction though in some parts, it's not like any other Star Wars book I've read... but I haven't read many to be honest.
I really love Ordo and Kal Skirata... Kal is interesting, he's not what I thought of him in HC. Can't say I really like Delta Squad, but I haven't played the RC game so I guess I'm a little biased.
I'm so happy for Darman and Etain! ^_^ But I won't say anymore, just incase...

Re: Triple Zero

Yeah, I haven't played the RC game either. Yo, I am SO excited about what will happen!! When I finish it, I REALLY wanna have a discussion too!!

And I think that the interaction between Ordo and Kal is so... Well, sweet, for lack of a better word!

Re: Triple Zero

I finished TZ- I must say- I LOVED IT
I have played the RC game and you kinda get to see a new side to Delta squad- it's nice smile
I didnt think that Walon Vau from the RC game was so....mean?..... I guess you don't really see much of Vau except for quotes while the game is loading and that hardly says anything about his personality
AND dar and etain!!!!- YAY!!! ^_^
hurry up and finish reading- we must discuss this book- I'm dying cuz none of my friends likes star wars sad

"Someday, Fi, someone's going to belt you on," Atin muttered. "And it's probably going to be Ordo."

Re: Triple Zero

I FINISHED IT!!! Yes, I DID break my one-chapter-a-day thing, but....
Ooooohhhhh, Atin should've given Vau a better beating than he did!!! Vau... Grrrrr... I did like Lord Mirdalan, though. I wanna strill!!

Re: Triple Zero

Lord Mirdalan was just too cool!

Re: Triple Zero

Re: Triple Zero

IknowIknowIknow!!! I was thinking the same thing! On another note...

KAREN TRAVISS IS WRITING ANOTHER SHORT STORY!!! It's called Omega Squad: Odds, and will be featured in the March/April (I think) issue of the SW insider!!! I just about screamed when I found out. Come to think of it, I did...

Re: Triple Zero

So, is it a library quality book, or should I buy my own copy?

I would buy it, definately!!! If I were you I would first read Hard Contact, Triple Zero's predecessor. If you read TZ b4 reading HC you'd understand it, though.

As good as TZ was, I thought that HC was better... But TZ is STILL one of the best SW books ever written!!!!

Re: Triple Zero

I'm just about to finish reading it and I really like it too... It's much different from HC and I can't yet decide which is best to me...

Yeah Ordo rocks smile ...but as weird as I can get, Bard'ika is my favorite character so far tongue

By the way I'm new here, although a long time lurker... I thought it was time for me to start joining in because you guys seem like a cool bunch!

Good to have you here with us!!! I LOVE your avatar!! smile

Re: Triple Zero

Thanks man! It's my drawing of the clone pilot, I posted a bigger version here.

So I finished reading TZ last night and I was kind of shocked that it ended so abruptly, all I thought was "A SEQUEL!! NOWWW!!!" and the part that sucks most is that I can't order the new Insider magazine with "Odds", the following short story she has written and should be published soon. It's really too bad that they don't ship outside the US and Canada sad I'll need to hope for a generous soul to scan the story, hehehe....

Anyway, still unsure whether TZ is better than HC or not. I loved the forest ops in the first novel and how the boys were trying to adapt to that new environment. In TZ it's completely different and another challenge for them so I can't exactly compare. The rythm is different, too, as we have no idea of who the real enemy is, there's some real analytic work for every character. The quality of the plot is definitly improved, but I dont know which I prefer yet tongue

Re: Triple Zero

I am VERY sorry that Insider doesn't ship to where you are... My problem is that my local Wal-Mart doesn't carry the individual issues (grrrrrr... mad) and since I lack money I can't order it!!!!! Aahg!

Re: Triple Zero

I am just about to finish this book and I love it! Although I like HC better because of their inexperience with wets and working with an inexperienced jedi. It just seemed like a slightly better story to me.

Re: Triple Zero

Where did you find it?I've been looking for TZ for almost a month now!I want i want!Can please someone scan the article?I've been asking for a very long time now.Since the old boards.

They say that dreamers are an extinct breed. I say they're wrong.

Re: Triple Zero

Well, my Dad pre-ordered it for me on Amazon.

Re: Triple Zero

Yes, an awesome book.  I'm hoping Karen writes another book so we'll finally know if Kal and the rest of the Null ARC's succeed in finding a way to keep them all from aging rapidly.  That would be awesome.  And Lord knows those guy's deserve better, you know? 

And I agree with the Order 66.  I think it's safe to say the Null ARC's will tell their superiors where to stick it, but it'll be interesting to see how the Commando's handle it.  Especially if it comes down to Omega not carrying out their orders, because of the female Jedi, and Delta Squad being a little more strict when it comes to following orders.  I know there was some story about Vader killing a group of Commando's, because they refused to kill their Jedi General.  I think it's in the book "The Rise of Darth Vader."  I'll have to wait until my wife can ship that to me out here, so I can read it.

It's a cool book and the story is great. That part where the commando's are being killed isn't actually written (we don't see them die, so to me it doesn't happen  tongue)


BTW, I'd like to know if any of you have got the Insider issue with Odds in it. You know I live in France so I can't get SW Insider here.... Anyone care to send a scan, please? I'd be much much grateful smile
