Beeblebrox, the stats for the ISD will almost certainly appear in the second book that focuses on the conflict between the Empire and the Rebels.
For this book, I think the idea is that the big ships would be rare sights in the Outer Rim.
I agree that it is a little bit painful to wait up to a year for such an iconic Star Wars ship, but we will definitely see it.
Getting back to the thread topic, I love adventure outlines, but I recognize that the economics of publishing probably make these a bad bet for FFG. Luckily, I have a good stack of old WEG modules that I can mine for quick adventure hooks.
I have to echo previous comments about fluff. As much as I love Star Wars, I have books (shelves of books!) about almost any era I would want to use for a campaign. I think settings or Galaxy Guide style books are going to be a tough sell unless they somehow hit a corner of the galaxy that has not been covered in excruciating detail by previous products.
I don't know enough about the Warhammer line to have a good handle on the types of supplements FFG has published for other games. In principle, we do not really need anything other than the three big books to do whatever we want.
I personally prefer setting games in the time period between Episodes IV and V, so this first book appeals to me. I think the three years or so between these two films provides an excellent background for adventures. The Rebels had their first major victory, but Vader is still out there being awesome. Boba Fett could spring a trap on any wannabe Jedi at any moment. All of that is exciting!
I am pleased that Timothy Zahn has set some of his latest books in this time period, and I am looking forward to reading Scoundrels in a few months.
A product I would love to see would be a Shadows of the Empire style approach to the gap between Yavin and Hoth. I think FFG could find enough room in this exciting and dramatic time to bring something unique to the table in a setting or campaign guide.
I will be keeping a close eye on announcements about future products, but I have enough Star Wars stuff that I am willing to vote with my wallet and only buy books that cover something I haven't seen before.
