To commemorate the day that Saga was going to be released, I thought it only appropriate to offer outlandish speculation and ludicrous theories why we aren't getting the book.

1. Moridin's mother horded the entire first run so she could put the SAGA edition on her refrigerator, and send a copy to all of the family members.

2. The U.S. Secret Service didn't learn their lesson from their raid of Steve Jackson games, and impounded the SAGA shipment after hearing that the book contained information concerning rebel groups and advocated joining said insurgency.

3. Moridin realized that Sterling Hersey had put in an unapproved anagram of Douglas Adams and had to stop the presses.

4. The binding didn't adhere to George's 'original vision', and had to be redone.

5. A clot in the printer kept one of the four colors from being applied, and as a result the Vader on the cover was pink. [I have no idea if that stuff is even done that way any more...]

6. The files and folders containing the data for the printers to print were stolen by a lot of very hirsute, sneaky individuals (although several of them met with fatal accidents in the process).

Ha!

6. The contract of Wizard's right to Padme's image ended last month and Natalie Portman didn't like one her pictures in the book.

7. There is actually a Star Destroyer orbiting Earth threatening orbital bombardment unless they look over the book before it hits shelves.

8. Someone set off a small scale thermal detonator accidentally, destroying the book they were about ready to print, so now they have to rewrite the entire book. In 11 days.

9. It was suddenly realised that feets is not the correct spelling.

10. They then realised while correcting the above that Skill Pants wasn't quite the meaning they wanted to convey.

LOL! That's awesome!

11. G.L announced that all movies are non-canon and only his dreams are real - thus the book had to be sent to GL mind reader and court psychic for re-evaluation

12. The whole edition has been printed in China (for expenses reasons) and the shipment sank.

13. And now the truth. JD's lighsaber ignited and burned the main unit on which the only copy of the book was stored.

14. The company that packed the Saga books for shipment had problems fitting the square books into the rectangular boxes.

15. Not enough Bothans have died to bring us this book.

16. Not able to restrain themselves, a crazed mob of gamers stormed the printing building, grabbing each printed copy and hoarding them in hidden locations. They meet every weekend in an abandoned train tunnel.

17. The book did not conform to Imperial Standards and was confiscated by the Imperial Quality Bureau for “alterations.”

18. George Lucas didn't think they were charging enough and therefore were not bringing him enough money, so they have to print new versions with higher suggested retail value.

19. George Lucas didn't feel they'd put in enough blue screen action and computer generated characters.

20. Jar Jar stumbled into the facility and tripped over a wire causing a short circuit which set the entire printing run on fire. Fortunately, he died in the flames. :D

21. All of the printing facility's workers were chased off by the appearance of a ghost rumored to haunt the building. That is, until a group of kids and their talking dog showed up and revealed that the ghost was actually Rick Berman, who saw the premiere of the Saga Edition rules as the means to destroy the Star Trek franchise and wanted to prevent its release. Even though Mr. Berman was caught and arrested, the dog confused the only copy of the book for a peanut butter sandwich and ate it.

Shouldn't that be a scooby snack? ;)

That would be too much of a copyright infringement. ;)

lol That's good. Hopefully, it is the death of Star Trek. I liked The Next Gen and DS9, but Voyager and Enterprise are too weird for me, and it can only go downhill from there... :(

22. One of the teams sent through the Stargate to gather valuable intel on one of the races adapted to fit into the book got captured by the Go'auld and had to be rescued by Moridin and co piloting the Millenium Falcon through the gate. Unfortunately the Falcon got lost on the way - creating a very interesting yet farcical crossover plot

23. George Lucas altered the deal. Pray he does not alter it further.

I see it now... Lando, Moridin and Teal'c sitting in the Falcon... oh man.
