Re: post Fate of the Jedi trilogy, OT era series announced

Hmm...I've been hoping to get back into Star Wars books after the Fate of the Jedi series. Not interested in starting off with a hardcover though, so I'll pass if that's the case with Sword of the Jedi. By the time it comes out in paperback, I'll probably have lost interest in Star Wars books in general by then.

Yes, I forgot add in "I agree with Scout101" in that previous post. You're absolutely right that it's overdue for something real to be done with Jaina's title. So far it seems like the only event that can really be tied to her being called the "Sword of the Jedi" was her confrontation with Jacen in LOTF.

She was also instrumental in the Jedi Temple battle in the finale of "Fate of the Jedi".

Heh, sorry, misunderstood the 'um...' post I made. We're totally on the same page with the part you just said. My comment was about your last part, Jag continuing his journey towards becoming Galactic Emperor. Was just stating that per the end of the last book, doesn't really look like that's headed that direction at all anymore...

Ah, right. At some point he ends up there, though. The Legacy comics established that Jag would be declared Emperor, institute a Fel Dynasty, and establish the Imperial Knights order of Force users.

By the end of FOTJ, I was much more interested in Jag's story and all the political machinations inside the Empire than I was in the Abeloth and Sith war.

You have a point. I didn't include it above, though, because I don't feel that her actions there were necessarily tied directly to Jaina having been dubbed the "Sword of the Jedi," whereas, if I recall correctly, she used that title as part of her justification in LOTF for being the one to confront Caedus.

Yeah I believe that was really the first time that Jaina embraced the title Luke had given her.

Ah, can't speak to that bit. Haven't read the comic series, just the books.

Eh, several writers now have tried to force that title, repeating it a few times here and there. It just hasn't FIT yet, or really even made any sense. It was made out to be this big 'thing', driven by the Force, that Luke didn't really even understand when he was saying it. Being one out of many in a couple big fights really hasn't given it any relevence. Even in the Cadeus showdown, really wasn't much there to play with.

It's something that was thrown out to play with, and while a few people have tried, so far NOTHING really has worked for me with it.

They kinda played with the idea a little when she was training with Fett, but it didn't go far enough towards her developing some new understanding of things, new technique or weapon, or even a big enough showdown (or sacrifice) on behalf of the Jedi to justify what they've put out there...

I highly recommend Legacy. It's some of the best EU stuff in recent years.

I've read about half of Legacy so far, and I second Skywalker's recommendation. It's pretty damn good stuff, and I just ordered the last two trade paperbacks I need to complete my collection a couple hours ago. I'm very much looking forward to starting the series over again with the momentum that having the whole series should add to my reading pace.

Re: post Fate of the Jedi trilogy, OT era series announced

Dark Horse held a Q&A sesson at the recent Star Wars Celebration VI event with Editor Randy Stradley. One tiny little bit that kind of flew under most people's radar was this brief exchange between Stradley and a fan:
Fan: Any possible continuation of Legacy now that Legacy: War is over? (lots of applause from other fans)

Stradley: I will take that under consideration, and maybe keep your eyes open for more there…

For the people talking about Jag, I did read a description on Star Wars.com that said the series will focus on Jaina and Jag.

Legacy was awesome. I wouldn't mind novels from that era...but kind of doubt that would happen.

I wouldn't be surprised if they did tie in novels, if they did more comics in the era. We have gotten a Knights Errant, and now a Dawn of the Jedi novel, so they appear to be doing comic/novel tie ins as a regular(ish?) thing now.

I'd rather not see Del Rey screw up the Legacy era (the real one). I'd only want to see a Legacy novel if Ordover were writing it.
