Dark Nest Placing ?Edit

Where does the Dark Nest trilogy sit vis-a-vis NJO and LotF?--The Erl of Eternity

I have a bad feeling about this... Edit

The Legacy series, both the books and comics, sound like they are going to absolutely positively bomb, both in story and sales. Who else thinks so?

does the Dark Horse Legacy Series fall under this eara?

    • Yes, it does. Just reading the summaries is painful...
      • The future does not bode well. I would have stopped at Swarm War, and then have gotten to work on the 25,000+ years of history that's virtually untouched. Era-leg.png The symbols look a hell of a lot alike...

  • The jokes on u bums. Betrayal was one of the highest acclaimed books of the entire EU, and Bloodlines is now one of the most anticipated.

Take that.-- 06:30, 23 June 2006 (UTC)

    • Bums? Because anyone with half a brain can tell that Betrayal sucked, as well as the entire Legacy era?
      • I am excited about it since the main characters will all get what they have comin. Ugluk 22:14, 23 August 2006 (UTC)
        • And wat would you say they have comnig to them? lol Sato Stars 03:07, 24 August 2006 (UTC)
          • Its just that they somehow are unkillable and although they never miss shots the imperially trained stormtroopers always miss unless they are shooting at a minor charactor, same applies to pilots. there is no way they can just continue living into year 130 and if they do i will denounce star wars in its entirety.

            • They already lost me at young Jedi and NJO, along with a few novels between the Heir to Empire series and the Corellian Trilogy. 09:07, 1 December 2006 (UTC)

the main problem is two fold, one, Cade Skywalker? honestly i haven't heard of many retarded ideas worse than that. also whatever happened to Yoda saying Luke could possibly live to be over 900 thanks to his power with the force? and perhaps the biggest insult to Star Wars of all, the Sith are Back!? I can forgive palpatine's ressurection to a degree, since technically he was already dead, but "the chosen one would destroy the sith and bring balance to the force" and that was Vader, the Sith are gone, forever, and they ain't coming back. Darth Krayt? don't make me laugh, about the only thing that's good about the Legacy Era is the 2nd Empire is not Evil.

bringing back the Sith is a Spit in all the fans of the movies faces, it makes it so the struggles of the Original Trilogy and even the Prequal Trilogy mean absolutely nothing if the Sith somehow return stronger than ever and the force is in even more darkness than before.

if they went and said the Legacy Era was about as Canon as the Infities it wouldn't be so bad, but they should never bring the Sith Back, Palpatine was pushing it, but no NEW Sith or even Dark Jedi.

  • Sigh. - I'd have thought everyone understood these things by now, but apparently not.
    1. Please sign your posts, by typing four tildes (~) after them.
    2. At least attempt proper grammar and spelling. For example: capitalizing sentences; resurrection, not ressurection; prequel, not prequal; Infinities, not infities.
      • Yoda didn't say Luke could live to be over 900 years old. He said "When 900 years old you are, look as good you will not, hmm?" . He was joking, implying that Luke (being human) would be long dead, rotten and decayed, hence not looking as good as Yoda. He never even implied anything about Luke being able to live to 900.
      • Even if he had, are you assuming that in the 130 or so years after that quote, that Luke would have never had any children, grandchildren, etc.?
    3. Yoda implied (in Episode II or III) that the prophecy could have been misread. The exact text of the prophecy is never actually revealed, just paraphrased on several occasions. No one (except possibly Lucas himself) knows for sure how the prophecy meant for the Chosen One to "bring balance to the Force". That is a subject of heated debate in the forums, so I won't get into it here. Suffice it to say that it's never said for certain that the Chosen One would destroy the Sith, let alone forever. It just said that he would bring balance to the Force. Also, if you know your EU, then you know the Sith have been thought to be destroyed or extinct numerous times, only to return decades or centuries later. What would make this any different, other than some ambiguous prophecy?
    4. Most importantly, we are talking about fiction here. If you feel that this particular series is "spitting in your face", then don't read it! That said, if you haven't read it, don't criticize. So often, in both fiction and real life, people criticize based on second-hand information. For instance, people regularly criticize what they "heard that so-and-so said", without having heard the person, let alone in context. Even having read what someone said verbally, can be misinterpreted, as sarcasm (among other affectations) does not translate well into print. Similarly, people frequently express passionate opinions of the written word, having only read a couple of reviews, or worse, the opinions of others on various forums, taking those opinions as gospel. Meanwhile, the forum posters may have made the same mistake, only compounding the problem.
Finally, on a more constructive note, thanks for keeping your criticism to this talk page, rather than cluttering up the actual article itself. I've seen too many cases (mostly on of opinion and misinformation on much more serious topics than these. Please don't take any of what I said personally, especially since I don't even know your alias, your post not having been signed. -- k1darkknight 00:19, 19 January 2008 (UTC)
P.S. - If any moderators feel that any of my comments are inappropriate, please let me know, and I'll edit them accordingly. -- k1darkknight 00:19, 19 January 2008 (UTC)


I've been noticing a lot of articles using the term "Legacy era" in an in-universe sense. Is there any IU evidence that anyone referred to that time period as such? -- Ozzel 03:27, 16 October 2006 (UTC)

  • ...because if not, then we need to be correcting those references. -- Ozzel 21:05, 16 October 2006 (UTC)
    • It's not an IU term (as of the Legacy era itself, which we're currently in), but consider it a conjectural name. What other name can you suggest for things like Galactic Empire (Legacy era)? Never mind. - Sikon 10:04, 1 December 2006 (UTC)


The Outcast link under Fate of the Jedi currently links to the Outcasts article, discussing an in-game group, instead of the Outcast page for the novel.

Can someone fix? Unsigned comment by (talk • contribs).

and goes on and on Edit

it stinks that there is nothing known past the legacy era Ethanco 21:50, 23 February 2009 (UTC)

  • "all of this has happened before and it will all happen again" Why isn't this Star Wars's motto?-- 14:22, March 21, 2010 (UTC)

Star Wars the Clone Wars misconception? Edit

I don't know if any of you guys watch the Star Wars Clone Wars series on Cartoon Network, or the movie, but if you look on Anakin and Obi-Wan's shoulder plating, it shows the Legacy era symbol. What I don't get is why it is there when it is during the "Empire Rising" era. I even have a Clone Wars shirt, and I can plainly see it. Someone explain please.-- 01:54, 11 March 2009 (UTC)

  • In-universe, that symbol represents the Jedi Order. So, it makes sense for Jedi of any era to wear that symbol. - 02:03, 11 March 2009 (UTC)

Thank you!!! <=D Bounty hunter freak 17:55, 11 March 2009 (UTC)

After Fate of the Jedi Edit

I know that the Fate of the Jedi series ends in November 2011, but all of the authors are going on to different projects. Will there be books that continue the story of Ben Skywalker? KingDonfin I am not Dumb! I'll have you know I have an IQ of 19!!!!!
