Thrawn Trilogy rewriten
Time
  • Instead of Jorus getting cloned as Joruus, Jorus survives, falls to the dark side, and does the things that Joruus does.

  • Jorus is the Guardian of Kamino instead of “Wayland”. Jorus’s job is to make sure the Kaminoans don’t try to rebel.

  • Mara Jade is the daughter of Palpatine and Talzin.

  • Mara Jade is the only Emperor’s Hand.

  • No Mara Jade in Jabba’s Palace. Sidious and Vader were trying to turn Luke, not kill him.

  • No command in Mara Jade’s mind.

  • No Luuke.

Most Baffling Complaint of a Star Wars Movie
Time
  • The claim that Obi-Wan saying he didn’t own R2 in ANH contradicts the prequels. Obi-Wan never owned R2.

  • The claim that the Sith using lightsabers contradicts The Emperor calling Luke’s lightsaber “the weapon of a Jedi” and “his Jedi weapon”. The Emperor’s point was to mock Luke’s claim to being a Jedi Knight, and just because lightsabers are Jedi weapons doesn’t mean they can’t also be Sith weapons.

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.
