What do you HATE about the EU?

I’d understand Han Solo in ANH calling Vader a “dark Jedi” the way my parents might call a Playstation a “Nintendo”, but it doesn’t make sense for Yoda to call someone a “dark Jedi”.

none of the post-ROTJ darkside-users qualified as being part of the Sith order.

This is true. Before TPM was released, EU writers were told not to use the term “Sith” to refer to anyone other than Vader if the story was set within the lifetime of characters from the movies.

Random PT ideas

Maybe instead of the Jedi having a temple on Coruscant and thinking that the Sith are extinct, the Jedi and Sith are both secretive but aware of each other’s existence. The average person isn’t aware of either order’s existence, and the orders aren’t aware of the identities of the other’s members. This would explain things like Motti and Han not believing in The Force, Tarkin knowing that Vader was Obi-Wan’s apprentice but not seeming to know that Vader is Anakin, etc.

Reconstructing the prequels from what was implied in the original trilogy
  • I think that Obi-Wan had at least one other Apprentice. Tarkin knows that Vader was Obi-Wan’s Apprentice, but doesn’t know that Vader = Anakin. Obi-Wan having another Apprentice would explain this.

  • Maybe Yoda warned Obi-Wan and Anakin to stay out of the Clone Wars because war leads to the dark side, but Obi-Wan and Anakin didn’t listen.

Revenge of the True Sith

The True Sith, the powerful ancestors of the primitives who the Rakata and Jedi Exiles found on Korriban, the Dark Lords of the Rakata, want revenge. The last Sith ghosts have been destroyed by the New Republic and New Jedi Order. The True Sith watched with horror as Palpatine fell into a reactor and Exar Kun’s spirit was killed. No traces of the Sith species or Order remain in the parts of the galaxy known to humans, and the True Sith have decided that it’s time to take things into their own hands.

Some notes:

  • Kalgrath, Palpatine clones, Lumiya, A’Sharad Hett, and the Vong don’t exist.
  • All spirits and holocrons on Korriban are destroyed by the time of TPM.
  • The True Sith colonized Korriban. The Sith species we all know are the primitive descendents of colonists who lost contact with their fellow Sith.
  • The Rakata were corrupted and puppeteered by the True Sith, hence the True Sith being the Dark Lords of the Rakata. The True Sith also corrupted Xendor, the first Dark Lord of the Sith.
  • Like in the actual EU, the Sith species uses the dark side because of their culture, not because of their genetics.
  • The only things that have to happen are the original Jedi Schism and resulting formation of the Dark Lords of the Sith and the events of the original trilogy. Things like TOR don’t have to happen.
  • My inspirations are an early Vong concept described in The Essential Reader’s Companion and fan speculation that occured in between KOTOR II’s and TOR’s release.
What 'a Star Wars Story' / anthology / spinoff film would you like to see?

This is the only spinoff I have any interest left in seeing:

Beast Wars, Dark Lords of the Sith, the Sith War, and Redemption were all excellent, so I’d adapt those, although I’d remove the “Sith poison” that turned Ulic and I’d make Freedon Nadd the first human to interact with the Sith species (meaning no Dark Lords before Exar). I’d definately drop Golden Age of the Sith and Fall of the Sith Empire.

Who Was Kira? - The Lucas Sequels

The transforming Emperor quote seems to be from before Yoda was created, and the idea was that there would be a battle between Palpatine and Obi-Wan in which it would be revealed that they can switch between physical and ghost forms at will. This is seen in the first screenplay draft of ROTJ and I suspect that introducing Palpatine as a hologram was supposed to make him seem “ghostly”. That quote may or may not have been from before Lucas decided to end the Luke-Vader-Palpatine Saga with the third (in release order) film.
