Hi everyone, the second chapter of the manga adaption of Star Wars: Lost Stars came out today. I've just finished the translation and will be posting it, just like last time.

If you're interested, here's last weeks:

And if you're impatient, here's this weeks:
http://imgur.com/a/5OzpA
Because someone suggested it, it's also on batoto if that's more to your liking, as will be the second chapter once it passes their whatever system

Here's the promotional blurb instead of me making something up:
>The reign of the Galactic Empire has reached the Outer Rim planet of Jelucan, where aristocratic Thane Kyrell and rural villager Ciena Ree bond over their love of flying. Enrolling at the Imperial Academy together to become fighter pilots for the glorious Empire is nothing less than a dream come true for the both of them. But Thane sours on the dream when he sees firsthand the horrific tactics the Empire uses to maintain its ironclad rule.
>Bitter and disillusioned, Thane joins the fledgling Rebellion—putting Ciena in an unbearable position to choose between her loyalty to the Empire and her love for the man she's known since childhood.
>Now on opposite sides of the war, will these friends turned foes find a way to be together, or will duty tear them—and the galaxy—apart?

Only bad stuff novel wise were by people like KJA or most of the writers who had little experience in science-fiction/fantasy stories which is mainly when Star Wars books were produced by Bantam Publishing. Once they switched over to Del Rey, both pre, during, and post OT and PT stories were good. Due to writers like Stover, Luceno, Salvatore, Zahn, Alliston, etc...

And I liked NJO. That was the moving point where the post-RoTJ stuff gets cemented into being bleaker, darker, and more serious without going full retard grimdark. I get the Vong were tough for some people to like but it was a nice divergent from rogue imperial warlord/ancient Sith Lord/super weapon of destruction/fallen Jedi storylines that got repeated over and over.

Plus if they ever did NJO, it would hit all the right buttons with the Japanese and guarantee sequel seasons with stuff like LotF and FotJ.

So I'd say no.

I disagree, I liked Bantam era a lot more than the Del Rey era, mostly because I hated NJO/LotF/FotJ, I have no interest in Denning's stupid snuff montage.

I've read the best parts of NJO in Traitor and Enemy Lines, I don't really care to read anything else from it, and this is from a guy who tolerated Crystal Star and Planet of Twilight, the two worst books in the Bantam era by far.

Hell, I even found GOOD parts in those two.
Crystal Star had cute Solo babies parts (Even if the kidnapping was bullshit writer fiat.) and uh, I guess the magician girl from it eventually became a fully fleshed out character in A C Crispin's Han Solo trilogy.

Planet of twilight had a swole Hutt and Uh I guess Daala being not-an-idiot and tooling around in a patrol vessel doing commando stuff.

>>157331882
Travis had one really good book (Hard contact), two decent ones, Tripple Zero, True Colors, one that started out okay and went to shit fast, (Order 66), and the rest were shit. Actually I didn't read her stuff with Ahsoka and such before TCW Season 2 pissed her off and made her ragequit, but her post-endor set books were awful, though that was as much Denning's fault as hers.

I wanna say we've seen male twi'leks without the forehead protuberances now. As for the head cover, shit, maybe the artist is doing a trap thing there on purpose.

Its because the contrarians on /co/ don't realize that TCW was cancelled due it running on CN which is owned by Disney's biggest cable rival despite its success and appeal and that it getting better was hugely influenced by Lucas' personal involvement and money. Which also explains why Rebels still looks like dogshit even into season 3.

>>157332174
Bantam Era Star Wars is awful. Zahn, Stackpole, and Alliston can't make up for crap like Children of the Jedi, Planet of Twilight, Jedi Academy Trilogy, and so on. Bantam era was the worst part of Star Wars EU.

>tolerated Crystal Star
Sorry anon, I can't take you seriously now.
>>
>>157331832
Vong is way to do divergent from usall stuff in worst possible way, same with way to do that type of race.
Just because it's diffrent that cliched plots its not excuse to be shit.

Also it was close getting full retard grimdark.

And idea of this becoming darker, bleaker and edger is mistake to begin with. Especially right after (few decades) end of original story.
This reason why I enjoy retcon making stuff between original trylogy and new trilogy more peaceful (even at expense of Jedi order).
Star Wars should be about hope and adventure, there are other setting for grimdark stuff. If you want darker SW you can always focus on Rise of Empire era. Or at least move timeline few centuries or more in future.

Like how the Clone Wars covered many theatres of war?

A shame we went from 'personally funded by George Lucas with millions per episode' to whatever it is Rebels has got.

>>
>>157332058
>Very bad. The Vos/Ventress novel is literally intended toward a female demographic with a retarded OTP between Vos and Ventress,
It actually started out pretty decent, but the endign was just "We need to get the Ostrander fans back and get rid of Ventress, so throw away the TCW characterization we took from the Big Lebowski and bring back the edgelord."

I really wanted to see what Christie Golden can write when she ISN'T stuck finishing or setting up someone else's idea, I was hoping Inferno Squadron would be all her, but it's a fucking EAfront2 prequel.

It never did.

>And the idea of this becoming darker
Was due to the fans. This was reception both Lucas Arts Books and Del Rey recieved from adult fans wanting the series to get more serious and more continual instead of random one-shot novels set all over the post-RoTJ timeline that Bantam did.

Only the first two books by Travisisty were decent, the third was goofy and the last two were absolutely fucking awful. Her autism over people debunking her low end bullshit about the Clone Army's size and number of troops involved in the war and her rants and bitch-fests are part of the reason why she was axed from Lucas Arts.

It wasn't just that she killed off Mara Jade. She had her killed by Caedus in the dumbest way possible that both makes the main antagonist of LotF look like a pussy and hijacked all three novels of the series she wrote into heading back into a repeat of her Clone Commando novels and Fett stories.

>Sorry anon, I can't take you seriously now.
"TOlerated" as in "Went in in the hopes of salvaging *SOMETHING* decent.

Bantam's stinkers are Parts of Children of the Jedi (Mostly the shit involving Callista and the Gammoreans, the rest, ESPECIALLY the descriptions of Belsavis itself were pretty okay.) Most of Crystal star, the Luke C-Plot in the Black Fleet Crisis, the Corellia Trilogy is bad but not completely awful and was partly redeemed by the bit about Thraken in the Han Solo Trilogy. The Jedi Academy trilogy was pretty fucking bad, but I, Jedi made it slightly better and really, I think when working with his wife on Young Jedi Knights JKA completely redeemed himself. Darksaber was a bit of a weird one, if you take out the pointless death and make the A-plot a pure comedy it could have really worked, oh and remove Callista from the B/C plot because she is awful.


The High points of Bantam. Thrawn trilogy, Hand of Thrawn duology, Rogue Squadron, WRAITH Squadron, Han Solo Trilogy (Not the Han solo Adventures or Lando Adventures though, those actually came before Bantam.)Truce at Bakura, the good parts of Darksaber

His naval parts are base a lot on what was physically possible in the X-Wing PC game, and on the devastating power of torpedoes in WW2.

The only reason it seems like KT left on "far worse terms" is because the public backlash and the entire affair was recorded and screenshotted from her rants on her blog and her arguments with fans on the Force.net or in actual person on camera. Wendig literally lost his shit over people critiquing his first novel because it was honestly written like garbage with flip-flopping tenses (present vs past), grammatical errors and spelling problems, typos, and odd shit like using XIR in canon.

Also can't forget that passage of "The fighter hobbily jerked and wobbled" shit. The guy had a meltdown over this claiming his novels had never been so negatively reviewed before. Well protip Wendig you dumb fuck, your writing for Star Wars now.

Rebel propaganda.
The films have no evidence of the racism and oppression that the Empire supposedly enforced systematically, except for that one detention block officer on the first Death Star insulting Chewie.

Most of the films were PG13 at best, doubt they would depict slavery and have a potential shitstorm on their hands or possibly drive away the part of the audience that has to take their kids with them.

>>157337756
Only RoTS, TFA, and Rogue One have hit above the PG rating. And RoTS is also the one that shows children being slaughtered, a man being dismembered and burned alive, and frequent characters on screen being decapitated.

But the Empire is hugely human-centric.
>>
>>157337808
There was a lot of fading to black and then the next scene starts when he was killing those children. They alluded to it well enough but they never showed it, at best we got a pre-teen/teenager get shot to death by clones but even then that wasn't so much dark as unsettling. The rest they did show but it didn't end up feeling so dark from my point of view.

Human race is master race. Hell The Essential Guide to Warfare book in Star Wars for EU even tells us the early Human dominated Republic even had a IoM phase where they went around genociding a bunch of alien species for not worshiping the same religion as they did.

>>157338738
Thrawn does the Empire good and the Vader parts and Grand Inquisitor also complimented the show very well. But the other Inquisitors being so criminally incompetent, the terrible animation, aping Ralph M's original art style in such a forced way with terrible CGI doesn't work as does the intent to push old school Star Wars feels very artificial from an aesthetic standpoint.

He's an unstable attack dog who got mauled:^) by his first major targets and written off by the guy who held his leash. Then his old tribe picks him out of the dirt and brushes him off, even giving him an apprentice to tool around with. He manages to bash a couple crime gangs into a junta on Mandalore and kill his self-appointed nemesis Kenobi's girlfriend.

Then the moment he finally thinks he's managed to accomplish something meaningful (in his own eyes), his old master busts in for a completely one-sided 1v2 duel, butchers his apprentice, and throws him back into the dirt so he can lead him back to someone of actual cosmic significance so Sheev can kill them too.

He knows nothing but violence and coercion through its thorough application, and keeps getting beaten down by people with the additional skills necessary to make lasting accomplishments. Of course he's going to end up a broken, delusional mess seeking one last chance to get back at the people he blames for his failings.

Seeing how Rebels completely contradicts both Maul's established goals in TCW and his character as well, I'm going to safely agree with that anon in that it clearly feels like Filoni had no idea what the fuck he was doing with him in Rebels and him killed off so anti-climatically and altered his character.

Rebels is terrible for a lot of reasons. The ruining of Maul is just one the more primary ones at the top of the list.

Being bitch slaves to Imperial interests and having Imperial garrisons on all their worlds effectively renders them inconsequential.

Not to mention it's a secret from the audience until halfway through the movie, when the film suddenly cuts to it for the obligatory "WE BIG IMPORTANT VILLAINS NOW" speech. I guess the toneless scene of that previously unmentioned system of planets getting torched while the whole galaxy watches and weeps from their backyards was supposed to distract the viewer from the fact that the plots of the first and second halves of the movie are completely disconnected.

I couldn't take Kylo Ren nor the First Order seriously as villains. Rey can already defeat Kylo, what's there left for Luke to teach? If EP8 Rey beats Kylo, we're just treated to more girlpower shit. If EP8 Kylo trains more & beats Rey, it'd make Luke look like a shitty teacher given how much potential the EP7 untrained Rey had & Rey's training being unable to keep up with whatever Snoke does.

That's not what happened. Bioware and Obsidian put some gay side characters and flirting options into Kotor 1&2. Lucasarts told them to remove them because it wasn't something they wanted to address. Said removal was half-assed at best, and still accessible through some dialog options or by poking around the game files.
Also, some of the old EU books introduced gay characters years ago.

He ragged on Rogue One for breaking "muh film school rules" and "visual recognition pandering", both of which TFA managed to get awa with to a far greater degree, so I think he's just irrational and/or watched R1 with a shitty audience and soured the experience with bad fee-fees.

When have you ever seen a Chiss loli? How do you know they even exist?
>>
>>157345184
>In addition, they (Chiss) experienced a greatly accelerated growth rate compared to Humans, which contributed to their reaching maturity faster than Humans. Thus a Chiss at the age of 10-years held the physical maturity of a 20-year old Human. This in turn resulted in a culturally-imprinted emotional maturity that was many times above that of their Human counterparts. They were capable of living up to 80 years old, at which point a Chiss was considered venerable; children were between ages 1-10, and they experienced a rapid adolescence from 11-12 and were considered full adults by 13-14. Middle-age followed between the ages of 51-62, and those aged 63-79 were considered old.

>>157345732
Anon, the Chiss are like the Vulcans of Star Wars. They are much less emotional or prone to behavioral outbursts or hot-headed antics then baseline humans. Those kind of things don't happen at all with their society.

I mean you could still have a harem but its going to be awkward explaining to your parents if your a human why your dating a 8 year old Chiss girl even if she's mentally more mature then a 20 year old human.

not him, but it was for me.
I mean, they set him up from the beginning of his time in TCW as mentally unhinged, but playing the long game, as well as pursuing his own brand of independence from the Sith way. After his final beat down his progression into something beyond a sith, more a true dark jedi makes a lot of sense, and much of his craziness in his initial introduction in Rebels disappears entirely the moment his plan to activate the sith weapon is initiated. It was an act to lull everyone into a false sense of security, and get Ezra to join him. You'll notice that once he gets his vision of Obiwan, it changes completely because he's seen that the key to everything, including himself, is there.
He's struck down and accepts that if it's for the sake of a child who will bring an end to the sith, he's okay with that.

>Was planet seceding against the law in the New Republic?
I don't remember the exact details but the plot of the (atrocious) Legacy of the Force with Evil Jacen was centered around the Corellians and a bunch of allied systems throwing a shitfit and deciding to quit the Galactic Alliance while hiding behind Centerpoint Station, which led to another little galactic civil war.
>>
>>157353630
It's not EU, it's Legends, you retard.
>>
>>157354075
I don't think it was illegal in Legends. I know that's it's not against the law to go independent in nucanon. Although there's not been much detail on them, there were many Governments formed from the Battle of Jakku. There are the Confederacy of Corporate Systems, Coruscant provisional government(Basically the Imperials that didn't got to the Unknown regions and ruled by Mas Amedda under New Republic watch), New Separatist Union, First Order and the Sovereign Latitudes of Maracavanya(Which is basically a nation of pirates).

>New Separatist Union
Well that just sound great, name yourself after the guys who started the Clone War and directly led to the creation of the Empire.
>>
>>157353630
I think the answer is that the canon New Republic was created based aorund the context of the prequels that we didn't have previously for Legends.

So since we know how Palpatine came to power now, it makes sense for the Canon New Republic to be designed in a manner reactionary against how Palapatine pulled it off. Meaning, a weak Chancellor with little more than figurehead power, an extremely limited central military, a capital moved away from Coruscant, and maximum autonomy for individual systems.

Additionally the whole history of the Legends NR was basically constant war against everything from imperials to warlords to genocidal aliens, so they needed a strong central government and military to survive. Legends NR has been at peace for decades

Those globes are sensor arrays, not shield generators. And Executor had multiple banks of them.
Also, Executor was being focused on by the bulk of the Rebel fleet. The A-wing struck the killing blow, but that was only possible because the ship was being pounded by dozens of capital ships.
>>
>>157355352
>it makes sense for the Canon New Republic to be designed in a manner reactionary against how Palapatine pulled it off.
It actually doesn't. The system Palpatine exploited worked for a very long time and he needed decades of planning and preparation, and also force mind manipulation fuckery. Throwing all of it away just to make it impossible to do again is retarded, even more because there are not many who could pull it off again. Palpatine is the extreme, not the norm.

>>157353697
I mean I'm pretty sure that Stackpole also heavily overestimates the power of the average Imperial Star Destroyer considering that aside from Darth Vader's one, we hardly see Star Destroyers ever doing anything actually useful in the movies themselves.

I never liked the kinds of tech levels on display in Knights of the Old Republic.

We are supposed to believe that the weapons and technology in use during the Galactic Civil War is leaps and bounds ahead of what was used during the Clone Wars, hence the whole three Clone Wars vintage Dreadnoughts = 1 Star Destroyer thing from the Thrawn Trilogy. And even the new canon Thrawn book draws a distinction between the old CW era blaster cannons and the new turbolasers.

The warships used by the Sith in KoTOR are vastly inferior to the ones used by the GE in present times. On top of that, they are part of the Star Destroyer family. And thirdly, all of the entire planet was ruined by Malak's bombardment, not just Taris City. Taris is a mini-version of Coruscant, a planet which entire surface is covered in hundreds of hundreds of kilometers of cityscape, all of that was nuked by Malak's fleet. Even centuries after the original deed, Taris hasn't recovered.

I'll take it because its SOMETHING. If you remove something, like the whole universe of alternate media since episode 4, you need to replace it with something else. Where is it? Other than that comic series there is NOTHING expanding on the new Disney canon, not even novels. If RO was their attempt at doing that then they have failed. Other than the heroine of that movie, it never bothers to give any of the cast to develop, not even a few minutes of exposition.

Come on now, that's not fair. It's not much compared to the decades of EU novels (pic related), but there ARE novels out there. Even if you ignore (and rightfully so) Wendig's godawful Aftermath books, there are still some quite solid entries in there. Hell, the OP manga is an adaptation of one of them.
At least read Bloodline, it fills in a lot of what the state of the New Republic is right before the First Order re-enters the galactic arena, and also gives us the most based NR Senator in existence.
And hell, Thrawn is a fun read too.

Wasn't that the shit with space Cthulu based on a horrible misunderstanding of the TCW Mortis arc?

I have heard the Lost tribe bits were pretty good.

And as for LotF the entire thing was trashed by Denning and KT.
>>
>>157362636
Chee already established that the Ones/Mortis arc in TCW was a real event despite fan theories it was a "mind-fuck" thing. If you mean Abeloth, the whole concept of the Celestials/Ones were teased for decades in EU. TCW just finally got around to showing us that the Ones were the most powerful members of the Celestials who happened to also be the literal personifications of the Force; Father = Balance, Daughter = Light, Son = Darkness, and Mother/Abeloth = Chaos.

I liked it.

>Dennings
>trash
Why?

Lost Tribe stories were the shit though. Too bad EU ended post-RoTJ stuff with Abeloth not being permanently killed, we will never get to see Ben marry Vestara, and both the Lost Tribe Sith and Krayt's One Sith still at large.

Also was I the only one that read all of NJO? I never skip out on any books in the series.

That is official imperial military doctrine, though, you don't send swarms of TIEs into combat without acknowledging in your heart that they're disposable and that most will likely die.

All of the really valuable TIE pilots fly interceptors, anyway

One of the first Disney EU things was a bit about TIE pilots in the Space and Air roles having a rivalry, it recanonized most of the old stuff on Doctrine.
>>
>>157367632
But the whole "TIEs being expendable grunts" is still canon, it was made canon when the design works of TFA noted that the presence of secondary gunners and shielding on the First Order's TIEs represented a departure from Imperial military doctrine, in that the First Order is less inclined to treat TIE pilots as disposable

There is no "EU" in Disney Star Wars though. All of it is "equally" canon now.

>>157367887
Anon, the First Order Tie-Fighters that get shielding are only for their SPECIAL FORCES units i.e. aces and top veterans. Disney canon also gives pre-FO Imperials the Tie-Interceptor in the reboot continuity by about three years before TESB, in original canon, the Empire didn't have Tie Interceptors till shortly after the Battle of Hoth. Hell they sort of quasi brought back Dark Troopers and Purge Troopers into the new canon too.

>There is no "EU" in Disney Star Wars though. All of it is "equally" canon now.
It's still fair to call the stuff outside the movies EU because it does expand the universe beyond what's shown through the camera lense.


No, even the basic FO TIEs have shields, the Visual dictionary mentions them as why they go so fast in atmosphere without tearing their radiators/solars off. Special Forces just have better shields and a front/rear turret.

>Hell they sort of quasi brought back Dark Troopers and Purge Troopers into the new canon too.

Ironically the canon "Phase 2 Dark Troopers" look like Legends Purge Troopers, the Canon Imperial Sentry droids look like Legends Dark Trooper Phase 2s, and the Canon Purge Troopers look like Darth Vader concept art with a TCW clone Minigun.
>>
>>157367971
I think Disney Star Wars gets Interceptors earlier then that, we see them in Rebels which is set 5 or 6 years before ANH.
>>
>>157368113
It makes no sense in relation to that column.
>>
>>157368174
Oh that I'm aware of.
>>
>>157368169
How would adding shields help you not tear the solar panels off in-atmosphere?
>>
>>157368651
Particle shields create a more aerodynamic shape. Enough repulsorlifts can have a similar effect but not quite as good.

>>157368173
Rebels started 5 years before ANH, but time passes in the show. The last season was like 2 years before ANH.
>>
>>157330208
>Jaina Solo
She was the proto-Rey, right?
>>
>>157368057

I felt the FO TIEs were rather bland in terms of technology progression, especially since we already saw Interceptors an other more advanced TIEs flying around during the empire years, it just seems like they're going backwards. It gets worse when you compare it to the jump between Revenge of the Sith and A New Hope, which has a shorter time frame by about a decade but has a bigger developmental jump.

The not!rebellion flying around in nearly identical X-wing models doesn't help either. All the tech in general seems to be something that would fit for something taking place only a decade afterwards, not three decades.
>>
>>157368847
She was Han and Leia's eldest daughter and Jacen's twin sister. There is very little shared between Rey and Jaina outside of being a Skywalker family member, each having brown hair, and being females. Jaina was all about joining Rogue Squadron and being a professional pilot in the New Republic Starfighter Corps, she's the closest in personality to the Solo Kids dad.

Rey is just awful.

The only thing I liked about Rogue One in regard to Saw's group was that it shows just like in the original novels (film novelizations to be specific), that the Alliance was largely made up of criminals, terrorists, and what not and not PURELY just "freedom fighters" or leftover remnants of believers in the Old Republic. The Alliance literally took ANYONE who had a grudge against the Empire including frequently criminals like arsonists, murders, and so on. And the extremism displayed by Saw and his men is a nice icing.

It was enough for many of the exact same systems to create the New Separatist Union after Endor. From what I've seen, the CIS legitimately believed that they were in the right. They witnessed the Republic becoming the Empire, the exact thing they believed they were fighting against. Then their worlds were subjugated by the Empire and exploited. Former separatists only joined the Rebellion to to fight against a common enemy, not restore the Republic like the Rebellion wanted

>>157371298
I doubt it was for real. There was that other clone who kills everyone in the Dark Side ending so Vader was safe.
>>
>>157371629
The NR has only a very small fleet because they decided to make nucanon Mon Mothma into space Neville Chamberlain.

They apparently only had the one fleet at Hosnian and a few system defense navies run by individual systems/sectors, like the pre-Clone War Republic.

>>157371940
Mon Mothma ended up privatizing the fuck outta shit like prisons allowing companies whom are sympathetic to the first order to control them. Also, the New Republic was filled with Senators from places like Coruscant whom were pro Empire planets and supported the FO and stalled any chance of conflict against the FO

Luke abandoning everyone was the thing pissed me the most, it was the most out-of-character thing he could do.

>>
>>157374688
No. Leia is the only person who is not politically retarded in this era. She actually sees the First Order for the threat it is. The Republic decides that it is going to drop the Chancellor position for a new head of the Republic, called the First Senator. Leia then tries to run for Fist Senator as the candidate for the Populist partyHowever a friend of Leia's on the opposing party the Centrists reveals to the Senate that Leia's father is Darth Vader and thus destroys Leia's political career so she creates the resistance to combat the FO herself
>>

I'm curious how they compiled both the evidence for that claim & the evidence against her adoptive father. Surely some picture of her childhood survived Alderaan.

>>
>>157375437
The recording was kept on a vault with stuff that were meant for her, but because Leia was involved with the Rebellion and then with the NR she never fulfilled her duties as member of the Alderaanian royalty, she gave up the rights for another member, which was secretly on the FO side, and this person manipulated one of her friends to make the information public, burying her political career
>>
>>157375437
Funnily enough, Leia never told Kylo(Ben at the time) that Vader was her father, and funnily enough this is how Kylo learns about Vader being his grandfather
