I'm a 6.  Read the early Star Wars comics when Marvel first issued them and some of the early EU, before I threw my hands up in despair, heh.

I loved Legacy. Including the stuff with Cade. I thought it was interesting to see him struggle with wanting to be his own man, and the pull to become a Jedi or fall to the Dark side as is the Skywalker way.

I would say I am a 7. I know the movies well. I know the Old Republic war with the Sith Empire, and I know Legacy era. After I finish the Darth Bane trilogy, I am going to start on Thrawn. I am going to skip the Vong stuff since it isn't very interesting.

I'd say I'm about an 8. I have very little comic knowledge, and a lot of pre-Republic era is rusty.

 

A claim to fame that I have is one time my brother and I were waiting to get into the front of Top Thrill Dragster. It was the first weekend it was open and kept breaking down. We waited in line almost 3.5 hours while playing a Star Wars game. Basically you had to name something from the star wars universe that began with the first or last letter of the previous answer. We were still going strong when we finally got to ride. XD

I thoroughly enjoyed Legacy. Looking forward to seeing more in the second volume with the Solo descendent. It incorporated everything i enjoy into one setting; rebellion, Empire, Jedi, Sith, bounty hunters, other than Jedi (loved the Imperial Knights).

My biggest challenge with Legacy was that I felt like Morrigan Corde was drawn to appear roughly 25 years old or so, which made it tough for me to buy her as Cade Skywalker's mother. (Note that I've only read Legacy: Volume 1, the hardback collection.)

 

I figure Cade is supposed to be, what, 20 or 25? Which puts Morrigan at probably 45 to 50, right? 

 

I couldn't tell if this was just artist Jan Duursema (and the other artists) drawing a female character so she is sexy and attractive regardless of her age, or if she was intended to seem way younger than she must be.

Cade is 14 when ossus falls, so he's between 21-23.

 

@Akesis I lked the idea behind Cade's character but it was poorly executed.

I'd go for a solid 6 or 7.

 

I once went to a Star Wars trivia night at a crowded pizza place right by LSU and won by myself.

 

promptly informed the entire crowded room afterwards that I was a Star Trek fan. That was a good fifty dollar tab. :lol:

I'd say 7 or 8. I've read my fair share of the Star Wars novels (man I still love X-Wing and Rogue Squadron), seen all the films, played most of the games, and peruse Wookiepedia quite a bit.

I would say 7 probably... though some of my coworkers would say 10 (LOL). I know overall plot of arcing stories across the entire timeline, but only read a handful of books. I have a pretty extensive collection of the old WEG stuff.. plus logged may hours on wookieepedia (biggest timesink ever).

I'll say I'm a 7, maybe an 8 on a good day. I won the Star Wars trivia challenge at the Fantasy Flight Star Wars Gaming Event in May, so that's worth maybe a six. I've got a lot of versions of the Star Wars RPG and obsessively read pretty much all the novels up until the execrable Swarm War trilogy (apologies to Troy Denning). After that I just didn't bother to keep up much with the EU. I sporadically keep up with the Old Republic events and was mildly interested in the Clone Wars cartoon. I love what Dark Horse has done with Star Wars. Then again, I read Wookieepedia and realize that getting a 10 would be impossible for anyone, with the exception of George Lucas or Steve Sansweet!

After reading through the responses I am dropping myself to a 6. I had forgot about the old republic and legacy comics stuff which I know very little about.

Five. I know a little bit beyond the classic trilogy, but not enough to rate myself a six. As for the EU, here are huge gaps in my knowledge.
