Is plasma generally known for its "preservative effects"?

We still don't even know how what was left of Maul got from Naboo to Lotho Minor. I suppose it's possible that Talzin went and got him, but that wouldn't explain why she left him on the junk planet.

Well, it's sci-fi/fantasy plasma. Who knows. Hell, we like Star Trek and that's a universe where a simple torpedo the size of an adult human being can create an entire planet with a functioning biosphere in a short space of time.

A coffee table book on the SW films that I once read said something about the Naboo people and their ancestors revering the native plasma of their planet and creating entire myths and legends around it, so perhaps it has some odd side effects. Or not.

Here are parts one and two of Ashley Eckstein's three-part "exit interview" with Newsarama. Part three was supposed to go up today, but alas, it did not.

Part one

Part two
Eckstein: Oh my gosh, the score! Without the score, without Kevin Kiner going out on his own, on his own dime, creating that score for us [Newsarama Note: It's true, Kiner flew to Prague and hired the orchestra for the score out of his own wallet]
Unbelievably cool.

Re: Breaking News: THE CLONE WARS Has Been Cancelled

I'm probably reading way too much into Maul's dialogue but he does say some interesting things. Like right when Savage first confronts him and is like "you are my brother" Maul says "you don't know". Almost as if to say he's not completely Maul anymore. And then when Talzin is doing her magic on him she appears to actually be pulling black gunk out of his head. I guess that could symbolize his insanity... but I wonder about that part as well. It's like he actually had some kind of dark side Venom goo in him or something.

Wasn't Maul's survival and trip to the junk planet shown in The Sith Hunters?

Re: Breaking News: THE CLONE WARS Has Been Cancelled

I really need to go back and rewatch the Maul-Savage arc again to reacquaint myself with some of the details. I hate being a fanatic about Trek and Wars and just plain forgetting minutae and details that should be easy to recall and talk about.

I haven't read it. I'm looking at preview pages on Amazon right now and it seems to pick up after that point. Was there a flashback or something later on? The pages I'm seeing only say this: In the years following his defeat at the hands of Obi-Wan Kenobi, the rage that sustained Maul's body also consumed his sanity.

Yes I think there was a flashback. Essentially he was tossed around like trash and dumped on that garbage planet.
