What do you HATE about the EU?
Time
  • That the Mandalorians started out as a species. Unlike the Sith (where “Lords of” was interpreted as “rulers of a species”), there was nothing suggesting that the Mandalorians were ever a species.

  • The inconsistencies surrounding how long lightsabers have been around and what they were like in different eras. I prefer the idea that lightsabers haven’t changed since the Jedi began “over a thousand generations” ago.

  • Darths pre-Bane and post-ROTJ.

  • If they didn’t want KOTOR to resemble TOTJ, why did they have it take place so close to TOTJ? Wouldn’t it have made more sense to set it during the New Sith Wars?

  • Why did KOTOR create a generic precursor race when the Sith species already existed?

Separate KOTOR from Tales of the Jedi
Time

Thank you.

Korriban was never stated to be the homeworld of the Sith species before KOTOR, so if they used the Sith species in place of the Rakata, they could have said that Korriban was just the only colony of the Sith species that the Jedi Exiles knew about and made the tropical planet at the end a colony that was founded before the Korriban colony and where the Sith species still thrives.

The idea here is to have KOTOR take place longer after TOTJ. More specifically, make KOTOR the beginning of the “New Sith Wars”, with Revan being the “founder of the Sith” talked about in the TPM novelization. This way, the difference in aesthetic and technology between TOTJ and KOTOR would make more sense. I feel that it would make sense for the “founding of the Sith” referenced in the TPM novelization to also be the beginning of the “Darth” title and red lightsabers. I also think that the Star Forge should have been an invention of the Sith species instead of introducing the Rakata.

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
Time

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
Time
  • 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
Time

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?
Time

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.
