Bothan spotted!?

Recommended Posts

Last week's episode of Resistance had a Bothan merchant. Or did it? With all of the speculation about their future in the game...

The Wookieepedia entry says "unidentified alien stall vendor", and that he "resembles the Legends description of a Bothan ".

*puts on tinfoil hat*

I think this is the situation:

1) With Rogue One doing fairly well, LFL/Dis decided to retconn the details of Bothans out (beyond just their existence) so they could be free to make Rogue Two: The One About The Bothans and have Bothans be whatever the director wanted them to be (I'm betting on WEG era "furry elves" over Joe Camels, but that's just me). 

2) Like the EU, New Bothans will still be heavily concerned with spying, because since that's all we know about them that's all they are capable of doing and it defines every part of their culture, biology, and mating rituals. 

3a) As such Bothans will intentionally, as a culture and species, try and keep a low profile on the galactic stage. Part of this will be that, at some point probably early on in their Galactic level history, the Bothans  altered galactic level records, replacing all images of Bothans with pictures of the Camel-people (probably a different species from a nearby system), thus ensuring that no one would be 100% sure of they were even seeing a Bothan, or just something that other people said was a Bothan.

3b) The Camel-people will actually be from the planet Bawthuwai, with Bothans being from the planet Both (pronounced "baw-th").

the race that was Bothans , has shown up in media before and wil l likely again, what a Bothan is now, we have no idea, Until they specify what, or who the Bothans are (Race / Family / Tribe / Job etc) .What looks like the non canon version of Bothans  is technically now an unknown race.

We don't even know for certain that Bothans are species. They may well be a planetary nation. Which could include the furry camel species, the hairy elves, and whatever else they come up with.

The Race Formerly Known as Bothans? 😉

If Tag and Bink hadn’t ended up on the cutting room floor for Solo, it would be fun watching people lose their minds as others started making a case for Manny being canon. 🤣
