    Default After the Vong are repelled, the galaxy needs a new threat.

    Obviously, the SW Galaxy is almost constantly in a state of war. It simply makes it more interesting that way. In your opinion, who would/should/could become the next major threat to the galaxy after the Vong are finally defeated (in your opinion)?

    In response to my own poll, I think a combination of the Empire and the Sith would be interesting. Either working together or separately (all the more fun )

    To be honest, I don't want to think about it. One the things I have against NJO (not that I don't like it) is that I was going "oh no, not another threat to the galaxy, all I want is a little peace". So I think they deserve a rest for a while. The Force has been balanced, whatever that means.

    I'm actually hoping for some unique peace-time tales of the new jedi order. I wouldn't mind reading about the peace-keeping exploits of a few Jedi for 3-5 books.

    I think some good Sith-based novels would be OK, but only after a little change of pace and such.

    (I should note that I'm not certain that this fits in the SW-RPG discussion -- perhaps the NJO Forum or something)

    I agree with Evan Hansen. Peacetime isn't necessarily boring. Given that everything else is set either in war, or threat of war, it would be a refreshing change to see some peacetime novels. In fact, I would hope that they would devote an entire "era" to this concept, because I can see a lot of book (and adventure) material in it.

    i chose "other"-


    [Start Super Sunday Voice- deep and loud]

    I envision a galaxy torn asunder by the new...



    exploitive...




    powerful....



    and expensive....





    [mundane office clerk voice] corporations returned from the ashes to sqaubble over publics and services that will in turn bribe politicians who will in turn give special interests a larger than normal voice in government... in other words, back to what the New Republic does best- bicker and fight about the price of fuel rods at the pump.

    It's time for some sith to at least do something again... or a sith-based novel from sith pov. the sith will rise again... so goes the ebb and flow of the galaxy. somebody's gonna find some sith lorebooks, and the tradition will be reborn.

    I can see it now...

    The Ewok Rebellion! They will combine all the lumber on their planet into giant logs, and launch them at other planets! How could it not work?!?

    The Ewok Menace? Atack of the Ewoks? The Endorian Hope? The Ewoks Strike Back? Revenge of the Ewoks?

    And my favorite scary movie used to be Showgirls.

    In all seriousness however, I think that a new Dark Side evil that has to be fought by the newly knighted Jedi like the Solo Twins and friends (if they survive the NJO that is).

    Naw - enough war. Time to let the galaxy recover and rebuild. Super Dimensional Fortress Macross was one of the better anime series I'd seen - and what made it stand out was that about a 3rd of the show was about the aftermath of the Earth/Zentraedi war. Sure there were battles, but the character development was much richer for the last portion of the story arc.

    If you take into account the vast military the empire had during its peak of power there are bound to be local warlords long after the fall of the empire. They might not be the grand threat to peace in the galaxy, but might take a few systems and turn them into their own "kingdoms".

    Using the fairly indoctrinated personel of the empire and telling them it is for the greater good of the empire, and then throw some of those opportunist with absolutely no moral into the pot, you have a deadly brew that sure will make life miserable for those unfortunate enough to live on the systems the warlord sees as "his system".

    Sum of it all i don´t think there is a need for the great threat. Overall peace in the galaxy, but with some serious mopping up to do, should provide enough material for a peace time era

    Moving to NJO forum

    Oh, and I always liked the Empire, so it would be good if they (or some form of them) came back.

    So they make some books on peacetime. That is good with me. But then, a sentient computer virus covertly begins bringing its crushing fist over the galaxy...

    Wait, does that work?

    Lightbulb Eureka!!!

    Maybe something the Vong leave behind could be the next threat,such as the YV molecular disease that Mara Jade was infected with,or left over Yuuzan Vong bio-technology could mutate.The Arkanians could get a hold of YV equipment and combine it with life from their galaxy.The possibility for new plots is almost endless!Almost.
