From what's been said in the other thread has made me set this thread up so we can discuss what we'd like to play, what adventure ideas has been inspired even if you're relying on whats been said only!
We have existing EotE characters that it looks like we’re going to be converting to F&D. I’ve got a Wookiee Marauder that I’m thinking would go the route of Niman Disciple — going any of the Warrior specializations would be too "dangerous" at the start because they cut too close to the dark side, and he’s already a combat monster in those areas.
But he would definitely continue to swing his pair of heavily modified vibro-axes most of the time, instead of his lightsaber. And he’d initially pick up force powers like Sense, Seek, and Enhance, none of which are necessarily that obvious as to what he’s doing when he uses them.
Actually, he might be better off going with Shii-Cho Knight if he wants to be a melee combatant, since almost all of the talents there work with any melee weapon, and not just lightsabers.
As far as the Warrior career being "too dangerous" and "too close to the dark side," sorry but that's a load of bull. The Warrior career is no more prone to being "dark side" than any other career in any of the three books. Yes, they operate around violence, but that doesn't mean you're required to go the Cobra-Kai route of "strike first, strike hard!" The Aggressor is the only one that treads the line, but unless you're trying to be a Light Side Paragon, you'd have to go out of your way to fall to the dark side (which only happens if you dip below 30 Morality), but Shii-Cho Knight and Starfighter Ace aren't any more inherently prone to becoming dark siders than a Niman Disciple or Peacekeeper are.
