Before Attack of the Clones came out, I remember seeing a time line that went 40 years forward from a New Hope and 20,000 years back on the inside cover of a few Dark Horse Star Wars comics.
But now all that has to coincide with another 12 years of novels and 5 years of a half assed tv series, as well as Revenge of the Sith and Attack of the Clones.
I just had an unsettling Star Wars thought.
You know how the Aliens in the real world ( Well, the Aliens from X-Files at the very least) have been controlling our social media since 1947 to make the global stage accepting to the the concept of alien life, so that there is no mass hysteria and the Christians don't all kill themselves?
That training globe Luke fights with the blinder head gear on?
Not only did that look exactly like a tiny Death Star, but the Emperor had probably been giving them away for free like beanie babies for the last two decades, to ease the public consciousness into subliminally pre-accepting his Super weapon as common place ordinary, nothing to write home about, when he did finally go public with it.
