    How Corrupt Was Your Republic?

    I would say it was more than just accelerated the crisis, but they manufactured a Galaxy wide Crisis from a number of smaller ones. Those Smaller Crises by themselves wouldn't be more than the Jedi and Republic Judicial Department could handle. What disenfranchised the various systems is when they would be addressed. What was needed was an overwhelming Crisis that demanded the reestablishment of the Republic Military Forces. Sidious was the mastermind behind the disenfranchisement of necessary worlds in order to create the power base for the Separatist Movement. Using both his public and secret personas to target and manipulate Crises to push the plan forward. This allowed Tyranus to be the face of the Separatist movement. Being a Disenfranchised Former member of the Jedi as well as his family background. He easily was able to bring those disenfranchised by the Republic together in a way that might not have happened organically. Many of those groups wouldn't have come to the table otherwise. If anything Accelerated the time frame of the Clones Wars, I would say it was Naboo. The no confidence vote would have happened and Senator Palpatine would have been made Chancellor, but it would have taken a lot longer. The actions in the Phantom Menace were too effective in settling the situation and the unexpected introduction of Anakin would causing Sidious to accelerate his plans.
  2. That is true and I wouldn't be surprised if they already drew from teams that have done the Marvel Netflix series.
  3. Just as long as Scott Buck isn't involved. I point to Inhumans and Iron Fist Season 1 for why he needs to stay away from Star Wars. I didn't forget about Dexter, but that really just makes things oddly confusing. We didn't get the best of Scott Buck from Dexter in Iron Fist and there was no hint of that Scott Buck anywhere near Inhumans.

    Blade Runner, Hot Tub Time Machine, Chronicles of Riddick, all got sequels because of the Home Video Sales even though they are considered Box Office Failures. Those don't even have the Merchandise like Solo has. So I wouldn't be surprised if Solo ends up making Disney plenty of Money in the long haul.
  5. If they bring Triocculus, I think it might be part of the Darkside Cult that was collecting Vader Artifacts we met in the Aftermath series. Which would make the "Palpatine's Son" angle an interesting play for him trying to gain control of smaller factions. I don't see him being anything more than a troublesome annoyance to the surviving Imperials. When it comes to the Yuuzhan Vong.. That is something I think they have already hinted at with the references to a great threat in the unknown regions, but they will end up being handled very different than in legends. Still an Invading Army with Bio-technology, but the force "immunity" being dropped. I see them being utilized more like the Zerg, White Walkers, or Orcs & Goblins. Something that will bring Whatever might be the opposing factions at the time together in a temporary Alliance. With the Chiss being one of the major factors holding them back for now.
  6. One of the things I really liked in the movie has to do with Han's Blaster. the DL-44. How Beckett broke it down from a rifle configuration to the pistol form. Which gives context to how the DR-45 Dragoon converts. Then we have L3 being merged into the Falcon's Nav-computer. For me it adds to the Falcon's mystique. Which ties into the Legendary Kessel Run. I think they did a great job in handling that explanation.
  7. I loved the music. Very Western feel. Reminds me of Firefly.
  8. I just happen to run across this video and I think it does a good job on summing up issues with Why are the Inquisitors so weak.
  9. I think it was the first Major Victory for the Rebel Alliance. I believe what happened on Lothal is seen more as a singular incident. Similar to the Uprising on Botajef. As Governor Price will take the blame for the loss of Imperial forces.
  10. I really liked the episode and how they handled it. It is mysterious and does to appear to have rules and limits, even if we do not know them all yet. What I am really glad is that not just anyone can use it. That it is part of mystical realm that and it wasn't some machine that Crazy Mcgee the scientist built. I also think that the Story group may restrict how this setup is used in Cannon.
  11. Right now I am thinking that it either is crashed or just significantly damaged. That would explain the change in the exterior. As for the interior I would think that the yellowing is just aging. If I remember right the movie is suppose to be 10 years before a ANH. So if you add a possible crash and 10 years of use. I can see it yellowing a bit.
  12. I really liked her as Sarah Conner. She was the best part of that film.
  13. You would think she might not be able to throw off GOT, but I have found a lot people do not really recongize her when she isn't blond. Of course, I do hope this is a better outing for her than Terminator Gynesis (I dont care if I spelled it wrong).
  14. What if they are adapting Lords of the Expanse from WEG?
