Logic's Insight: The Jedi Order 1/2
"For over a thousand generations, the Jedi Knights were the guardians of peace and justice in the Old Republic."
- Obi-Wan Kenobi, A New Hope
Remember when Obi-Wan first said that simple, but explanatory quote back in the first Star Wars movie? Remember hearing him talk about the lightsaber as an elegant weapon for a more civilized age as Luke activated and waved around his father's lightsaber? Remember Luke's training on Dagobah and listening to Master Yoda talk about the jedi philosophy and the force? Remember when Luke first appeared in Return of the Jedi as a jedi in all but formality? Remember your chills when you recalled that Darth Vader had been a cunning, noble and loyal jedi knight before falling to the dark side?
We were given a short glimpse into what the jedi order once was. It flared our imaginations and gave birth to the mock lightsaber fight. We loved lightsabers, we loved the robes and we loved the mythical and almost spiritual power that jedi wielded. We were

"Armor," Vhetin said, gesturing to his own black-gray suit, "is one of the most recognizable attributes of our civilization. When an aruetii is asked to name something Mandalorian, they probably won't start listing our cultural achievements or greatest leaders. They'll say oh, those are the guys with the armor. "
"Mandalorians are among the greatest armorsmiths in the galaxy," Janada said. She gestured to the yellow-armored teacher, who powered up a holoprojector. With a flash of light, the projector began displaying some of the most recognizable Mandalorians in history: Mandalore the Ultimate, Mandalore the Preserver, and Mandalore the Vindicated. Each wore significantly unique suits of armor, though the relationship between them was obvious.
Janada gestured for the teacher to pause the hologram on the most modern example of Mandalorian armorcraft. The children watched in fascination as a life-sized hologram of a green and red Mandalorian slo

When Star Wars Rebels was first announced the reaction to its existence was unsurprisingly mixed. Some welcomed the new show and a show based more around the prequel trilogy but many held reservations, partly because it was replacing the largely beloved Star Wars: The Clone Wars, but also partly because this was one of the first Star Wars production under the banner of the big eared mouse Disney. Apparently despite the fact that Disney has allowed Marvel Studio to do whatever they want and make some pretty risky films (by the comic book genre standards, at least) AND despite the flawed but daringly dark Maleficent there still seems to be this set picture in people’s minds that Disney can only really be associated with ‘kiddy’ stuff and simply wasn’t right for Star Wars.
I can appreciate the disappointment of having a beloved show end, but in the end all shows must end, and it was never fair to hold that against Rebels. The latter complaint i

A violent explosion awoke Eve. She sat up in her queen-sized bed and looked around the room. She recalled that General Grievous came into her room, they talked, they laughed, they danced for a bit to a song she had recorded (but with better quality and she actually knew what it was called this time; "Moonlight Serenade" it was called by some dead guy who played music; or so Grievous said that's who it was), they sat on the bed, they kissed and then they slept. Was there anything sexual that happened? She thought. She went through her memories of a few hours back; no, they just fell asleep on the same bed; the first time she had ever done that with a male. But waking up to an explosion to find the male she fell asleep with; that never happened before. Did he leave her or did this attack happen while she was asleep and he left to take

He picked Ahsoka up and shoved her under one of the huge fungi, then drew his blasters. Rex stalked toward the front of the barn where the two pirate guards were stationed. He shot both of them before scanning his surroundings for more. So easy a pair of rookies could do it. Ahsoka had been right. He holstered the blasters and hurried back to where he left Ahsoka. He picked her up and opened the barn doors. The ship, though small, had a streamlined triangular look to it, giving Rex the impression that it was fast.Star Wars: Divided Loyalties 34 years ago in Sci-Fi More Like This

The Predor scoured the point of his spear over the corpse. The Strategists at his back were already discussing about the scanty information just reported by the selkath explorer.
In the meantime the Builders' legion was spurring the slaves' hordes through the mountain pass beneath them; the sanguine rays of the dying sun barely enlightened the rugged passage and weren't warm enough for the cold-blooded warriors.

The Predor turned himself to the Warlords, ending the discussion.

For almost 3 days, Grievous would knock on the door to his own room, protesting to Eve to open the door and let him. Occasionally his anger would get him to try to cut the door open with his lightsabers but he only found himself in the range of Eve's gun. He tried all the lovey stuff that was in the records but none of them worked. Sidious was especially impatient upon hearing that the General failed to acquire the blueprints to her weapon but not even Sidious' force abuse could hurt Grievous as much as Eve's words.
Every time he tried to apologize, explain what happened or make it up to her, she would always angrily yell out something towards him, mostly something that made him sound like a horrible monster. He could never look at his own face in the mirror from these comments, she called him a horrible lying and tr

A pair of liquid silver eyes blinked slowly, taking in the scene before them with interest and otherworldly detachment.
The voice was soft, as it always was, despite the gruff sound it had. She felt her heart beat faster, her eyes unable to focus on a single thing, everything was moving so fast. There were so many lives counting on her, so many people who looked to her for guidance, and once more, she took the place as leader on the field of battle. She looked around at the faces looking up at her, Carth Onasi, Bastila Shan, Canderous Ordo, Mission Vao, Zaalbar, Juhani, Jolee Bindo, the faithful droids HK-47 and T3-M4.
And now, two new faces joined their circle. One belonging to a woman she had never expected to see again in her entire life. It was Breena, standing there, in the flesh, those silvery blue eyes gazing up at her with same loyalty they had held when she had decided to march them off to war. They were both different people entirely now, but she suspected Breena's

The Previous Day
Trumole was a resource-rich planet and arms producer for the CIS. And while it was not the most important planet, it did hold value, a rich amount of resources that could aid either side during the galactic conflict. The capital city of Volgaris had been under siege for over two months, beginning even before the Beskar Brigade had begun their special training with Andis on Mandallia.
The bloody fighting led to nothing but a stalemate. When the Republic decided to cut their losses and pull out, Andis saw it as an opportunity to test his men, and he had the Brigade’s fleet set course for Trumole. On the way, Starla shared her research on the background of the planet and the conflict with the troops.

Star Wars: Divided Loyalties 4Ahsoka groaned before she was fully awake. She opened her eyes. Where am I? She examined her surroundings and realized she was imprisoned in a small room. By the vibrations she felt, she guessed she was on a ship. Ahsoka had been in situations like this before. She sat up and the blanket someone had placed over her slid off her back and onto the mattress she was on. That's different. No one who captured her ever worried about her comfort. Who captured her anyway? She remembered Rex aiming the blaster at her. Rex wouldn't do that. She tried to clear her head but the memory stayed the same. He did shoot me.

Boss gave a tired sigh. "Look, I didn't want to leave him behind either."
Scorch muttered something under his breath and strode past Boss. He wasn't happy at all. He had barely spoken to the Spaarti clone that had temporarily taken Sev's place. He missed the banter they'd had, the friendly fights, and it wasn't until he was gone that Scorch realised how much he missed Sev. He had nightmares about it. He had to watch Sev stumble around Kashyyyk, lost, alone and half-dead. He hated them. He always tried to reach out to him, but he could never reach. It brought him to tears every time; the thought of Sev thinking they'd abandoned him, and being unable to tell him he didn't want to go.

For what must have been the twentieth time that day, Lux tensed his muscles, as if it would remove the binders on his wrists. They didn't give. He glared at his captors. Not much to look at. The soldiers were all identical, down to the last detail. If it weren't for a few who were talking to each other and chuckling about jokes, it would have been easy to forget they were humans and see them as nothing but white droids.
One of the stormtroopers looked at Lux but with his ugly white helmet, it was impossible to tell what he was thinking. Just shoot me and get it over with, Lux mentally pleaded. Ryloth's hot wind blew in Lux's face, adding to his discomfort. The only comfort he had was that he'd gotten the information he'd been carrying got off Ryloth before he'd been captured.

At least the interrogations were over. There would be no more questions about why he betrayed the Republic. He only had a week left to live.
Footsteps hurried down the hall outside his cell. The steel door to his cell gave him more privacy than his last cell, which had a force field door but it also cut him off from the world. The footsteps paused outside his cell.

Hoth was cold.
It wasn't the kind of cold he was used to; this was a permeating, biting chill that he felt could freeze the flesh off his bones, the kind that seeped through whatever layers you wore like ice water. It numbed his fingertips, despite the thick, woollen gloves, and stuck to the side of his weather-beaten face in small crystals that he could scrape off with his hand. They didn't melt in his palm.
He carried on his path, trudging through thick snow and huddling against the harsh wind that he knew never ceased here, whether it carried snow with it or not. He heard it howling at night, an eerie and haunting sound that gave him chills. It made the night feel long. It made him feel alone. He stopped again, and looked around at the desolate whiteness. Nothing but snow and ice, perfect white from having never seen sentient presence here. He would not have been surprised to know his footsteps in the snow were the first the planet had ever seen. It was all lonely here
