  1. They maybe flunked or were killed prior to becoming Jedi? It's not like star wars rules are empty anyhow. "Only two" and "all jedi gone except for obi and yoda"
  2. Some of the gun stances look like in the game and if you played the DLC I guess there'd be a vibe of the flashback scenes running around the mall. I wish it gave me a Last of us vibe as that could only be a good thing. That promo looked cheap - like it was fan made and had a Dr Who/CW for kids vibe. But I can remember a lot of people thought that about SG:U until they saw it and it turned out to be great. Hopefully they have a 2 season story mapped out which can only be beneficial for a walking dead show in the hope it has 2 seasons of story play out. Knowing WD it'll probably mean there's 8 episodes of material. I think the concept of following people who've only ever known the zombie world is quite interesting though.
  3. Wookies have no souls Or could be official given how rise of skywalker seemed to use a brainstorming board as a storyboard.

    Star Trek Thread: Set Picard to Stun (spoilers)

    With a name like tapeworm i think there will be some elements of wrath of khan they will enjoy from a parasite perspective. There would be a great meta story going on if picard after 15 years of doing nothing about his grestest failure finally gets off his ass and finds redemption returning starfleet to its former idealistic glory. Stewart was left in the trek wilderness (he's obviously been busy/successful elsewhere like Picard's vineyard) after doing a film he thought the fans wanted and ended up killing a franchise (Hollywood/starfleet meddling). Now stewart is back with a trek show that is proving to be very successful and already has a second season. As for Discovery some of the standouts for season 2 were the ones highlighting the cyborg and the more Jett Reno the better. It'd be great for the show and the actors who haveso far played regular extras to have more to do. There's more than 4 characters to play with in the show. Hopefully it's not just a case of adding new characters from the future into the mix.
  5. Ah, ok must have misrembered the news item and got the opposite Like Wert said it's a bit of a leap going into it with the games. Although it seems the games have fared better when set outside the Skywalker era anyhow. Guess the most recent one was sort of skywalker era but had more in common with rebels and rogue one show/film.
  6. Wasn't there going to be games involved in this setting too? I guess video games are as expensive an endeavour/risk as films so I can see why they are going for books/comics. I can see why they are choose this setting as it should allow them to do stories of their own (I don't think that era has been covered). The problem with KOTOR is that fans will bitch and moan if it is 100% faithful which beyond the original creators (and maybe filoni) isn't a very exciting prospect. As long as it's not a palpatine/Yoda prequel and only involves characters not connected to existing lore I actually think it could be a good move. Then again the potential to have the original baby Yoda may prove too tempting But if they are testing the water with comics and books I fear it may be doomed from there. The comics are split between Marvel and IDW which seems uneccessarily confusing and it's noticeable that the comic creators aren't the stable of writers they use in the regular marvel books. That in itself suggests Marvel aren't taking it very seriously. It's funny as the current state of star wars reminds me of ex marvel EIC's comments about DC not being able to make a good superman film/comic as "being like a pornstar that can't get it up". Seems apt to star wars at the moment with it being clear Disney don't have a clue what to do with a franchise that should be an excuse to print money.

    Star Trek Thread: Set Picard to Stun (spoilers)

    His argument kind of confirms what I suspected in that the show is more about seeing the non-federation parts of space. His suggestion it's about testing their principles makes me think we need to see how the show pans out. If that secret romulan group has infiltrated starfleet and the federation there is a relatively easy fix although the more interesting angle is that parts of starfleet and the federation have acted in such a way out of their own volition. I bet he's looking forward to adapting his own work. Although he may as well brace himself for being told he's wrong about that too.

    The new trek shows could use someone like this as a creative consultant. It doesn't seem like they have one.

    Westworld VIII: Forging On

    I know how you feel regarding the quality of season 2 but I'm hoping they've learned from it. It does look like a big overhaul/refresh so it's an excellent opportunity to course correct. But if it starts with all the convoluted, opaque "cleverness" of season 2 I'll be checking out fast. Eg Aaron Paul character gets embroiled in a "is he a host or not" story and is a tool for unreliable narration.

    Westworld VIII: Forging On

    Hopefully a sign the show will not take itself as seriously as it did in season 2. I'm pinning a lot on Aaron Paul's presence but I think the thing I'm excited about is that season 3 might not just be about a revolution for the hosts but a revolution against the fabric of the society that created and enslaved them. That and it appears the hosts realise that the downtrodden 99% are probably their allies more than the robots the 1% are presumably using to keep the 99% down. In essence the sense of a little hope after only really seeing the worst of mankind for two seasons.

    Star Trek Thread: Set Picard to Stun (spoilers)

    I thought it was partly because mycelium/space fungus can do everything so why can't any of the crew do anything? Which is a bit of a shame given how many characters there are from the bridge that have received virtually no character development. Let them specialise in something so that someone other than Tilly and Stamets can take part. That's an interesting breakdown and it could well suggest that starfleet is stretched very thin - especially after the mars incident. It would also go someway to explain why the rangers had to pop up - it's much easier for vigilantes to adapt existing ships or even build new ones than to make starfleet class ships. It's why i tend to think a lot of what we are seeing are on frontier like parts of the federation where there simply isn't anyone policing. Besides the "secret" group Earth seems relatively safe and crime free. Starfleet needs to find exogol - problem solved.

    I'm still enjoying "Picard" but I do wonder if it would have been a better show with him as a high ranking ambassador getting mixed up in the type of politics you mention? A flashback of him trying this instead of sulking on his farm would be nice. Or maybe after he "saves the galaxy" this season he could use his clout to try and change things? I guess if Discovery has taught us anything it's that these new shows can change a lot between seasons. That said, a friend made a good point when he said the last episode should have been called "I want to play a french pirate" because it does seem like Stewart has quite a bit of clout regarding what happens in the show.

    I guess this is what Patrick Stewart was alluding to with his comparisons to the EU. Although I guess with that analogy it would be more likely that an alien race/political entity would leave the Federation rather than convince it to do something the majority weren't in favour of. Unless the Federation is more like the US (possibly a clue in the name) and it's not that easy/possible to leave. I guess I'm used to star trek characters being super awesome at everything.

    Corvinus was correct in my mixing up starfleet and the federation but I think my point still stands that if starfleet is answerable to the Federation then it's also answerable to the people electing the federation.

    If raffi has a holodeck in her caravan she can also have a vineyard. Everyone could live in a small apartment and as long as they have a holodeck and replicator life is good. Does starfleet operate as a democracy and have elections? If it does then i guess it is just as vulnerable to massive changes as we are now. And the dominion war and romulus incidents could easily change popular opinion. I mean they only need to introduce an alien race who has been stirring things up via fake news to seal the deal
