    YwingAce got a reaction from RebelRogue in Yuuzhan Vong Ships, Read Before Hating   
    Everyone I'd ever met that actually read the EU loved the Vong until I came onto these forums. I still love the Vong. Yea there were quite a few bad books, but there were some good ones too.
    I'd much rather read about a new alien threat that kills off main characters, and defies the Force, then some Imperial Admiral who can do everything, and is always right.
    That said, I don't think they really fit into X-wing, though you seem to be doing a good job, keep up the good work!

    That's beautiful. If only we could have a season 8 of DS9, or a post-DS9 series. But alas we have to see the wonderful era of 10 years before TOS....

    I'm fine either way as long as he keeps the Bryar pistol. I always loved the design. Don't no why.

    Yes, we've already had one X-Wing from The Force Unleashed which doesn't really see table time, we don't need another.
    Wedge, Wes, Luke, Hobbie, Porkins, Biggs, Garven and Tarn all need some love.  It's been far too long since Bloody Daggers was a thing, and Biggs Walks The Dogs won Worlds.
    MAKE THE T-65 GREAT AGAIN!

    I don't want a new X-Wing. I want Wedge and crew to become the new symbol of power in the galaxy.

    Yup, V-wings are basically A-wings with Astros instead of missiles. It should be noted though that V-wings did have limited shields, but not sure how that works with balance.

    Vong invasion isn't a bad idea. The problem with NJO was that it was an 18(?) book series written by a whole slew of writers who had no idea what they were doing, with stupid mandates from Lucas.

    It's funny that you say that, because the Borg are high tech, while the Vong abhor technology to a religiously fanatic degree. But I do see the similarities. When those books were coming out or soon thereafter, I always thought that the authors were making the Vong into these religious fanatics that were sort of an analogy of modern day Islamic terrorists. They would come to a new world and want to convert it (Vongforming) or destroy it.

    I'll break this down statement by statement.
    Duh, so is the Canon. Even the movies follow this.
    Again so is canon. Even the movies have different writers.
    Uhhhh....... Knights of the Old Republic, Republic Commando, and numerous others disagree with you.
    Umm, yea, that's actually a good thing. It means things stay consistent. And again, that's not different then any from new Canon. Only difference is new canon doesn't have to worry about Lucas messing with it.
    I really can't tell the point you're trying to make? Saying my description of NJO is an analogy of the entire EU is silly. Of course everything is going to be written by different authors and tell different stories. That's the point of an EU in the first place. And the point of a canon is to make sure they all remain consistent. And the EU actually did a much better job at that then people give it credit for.
    The point I was trying to make was that the reason I think people dislike NJO (I enjoyed alot of it though it definitely had problems) was that it was an 18 book series written by multiple authors who had no idea what they were doing because of Lucas, and didn't communicate with eachother very well. In other words, the Vong aren't bad, it was the execution of the storyline in which they appear that was bad.
