Just finished my re-read of Timothy Zahn's Heir to the Empire trilogy. Really enjoyed it. I had given away my copies to different people at points, great to go through it all again. Some observations:

1) Zahn with the pre-Internet Ackbar meme when they get to Bilbringi near the end of the third book he says "It appears to be a trap."

2) One of the end sequences of The Last Command is pretty similar to what happens in The Force Awakens. Han and Chewie split up to try and blow up the cloning facility just like they try to blow u the oscillator of Starkiller Base.

3) Luke doesn't do a whole lot in the last book - Mara Jade kills his clone as well as Joruus C'baoth.

4) If Thrawn is going to be in the Ahsoka series, I wonder how deep they'll take the lore. If you watched Rebels, he had Rukh with him - although I think he died - and there was the incredible reference to Captain Pelleaon in the very last episode. I know Zahn has written the hell out of Thrawn, but he's so fascinating in this series. What an overall achievement of new characters for one author in one series - Thrawn, Pelleaon, the Noghri, C'baoth, Borsk Felya, Winter, Talon Kardde, Mara Jade, the other smugglers - Mazzic, Gileppsie, Aves, Niles, Ghent, Niles Ferrier, the vormskrs, the ysalamri.

5) Surprised there was never a back story or a comic of C'Baoth against the "Guardian of the Mountain" on Wayland. I have always wondered who that being was.

Did Zahn come up with the term "slicer"?

I really need to go back and read those again. It's probably been 20 years. I thought the noghiri's arc through the series was beautiful and tragic. I didn't really like how it was treated in Clone Wars. And obviously sad that he got offed.

I'm halfway through Light of the Jedi and I'm really starting to like it. The villains are I guess prates but I get almost a Viking raider vibe from them

Thrawn, Talon Karrde, and Mara Jade all created in one book. Its not my all time favorite of the EU, but its the GOAT and that's a big reason why.

Poe was born before Endor, Ben was born in 5 ABY, so he might have been

Gamorrean vs. Rees-Yees is an absolute barn-burner. Meanwhile a certain someone is leading all votes with 84.6%!

This is going to be a tournament of 12 hour rounds. Because even inside the niche, this is pretty damn niche.

I would've loved this. Makes Padme's arc stronger and makes it more viable to have Anakin actually kill Padme rather than her losing the will to live.

That'd have been awesome. Gets rid of several awful parts like the "ooba" robot, the nonsensical death, Anakin being dumb enough to never follow up on whether the super-pregnant woman might have given birth, "NoooOooOoo"... etc.

Iain McCaig is the artist who did that work and is just as brilliant as they come, having worked on the prequels, The Force Awakens,GOTG, and the Avengers. here is some of his other stuff.
