I have recently thought of The Clone Wars as a canon cruncher. Why? It likes to destroy canon previously established by authors. The worst is when they kill off characters that already have met their ends elsewhere. As Season 5 comes to a close, it looks like Bariss Offee has her head on the choping block...AGAIN, and I am beside myself with nerd anger.
I like TCW I truly do. Sure its a canon cruncher, but its entertaining and what else would a nerd virgin like myself do on a Friday night at 8 (okay now its on at 9:30 am saturday, so I have no excuse). Here is a list of things I'd like to see in Clone Wars at some point.
1. Darth Maul vs General Grievous- This would be an epic duel, and I'd have no clue who'd win. Mechanical footsie anyone?
2. Something to do with the Yuuzhan Vong- I actually like the Vong and I'd like to see a cameo of one of their spies or scouts which were active during the Clone Wars.
3. Plo Kloon's Electric Judgement- Come on Filoni. Koon's your favorite Jedi, so I'd like to see him discharge some justice. Yellow please.
4. Arkanian dragon- Yeah I like dragons.......
5. Sith spirit- I'd like to see one of these bad boys, maybe try and seduce Anakin....
6. Epic death of Ahsoka Tano- its time for Miss Tano to go. Put her on the final straw list for Anakins conversion and please make it unforgettable.
7. Yoda lightsaber duel- I don't know who'd be good enough to make Yoda whip it out (snicker), but Dooku is always an option and who knows, Impress me.
Yeah I just saw a new Databank entry for the Jedi younglings and they all (except Zatt) are weilding their new lightsabers. Petro, Katooni and Byph all wield blue as expected of a youngling, yet Gnodi and Grungi have green. Green has always been associated with a Jedi more intune with the Force, and Ganodi and Gungis' methods of retrieving their crystals supports that. So do they have more midi-chlorians then their peers?

I just watched Tipping Points, the last episode of the Onderon arc, and I have to say I was very surprised at Ahsoka Tano's latest close-call. While levitating Steela from falling off a cliff, a Droid Gunship's still active droid brain targeted Ahsoka with its laser cannon hitting her in the shoulder and causing her to lose her force grip on Steela. Steela dies but Ahsoka...is completely unharmed? That laser cannon should have burnt a hole in her shoulder blade and killed her instantly. I mean Asajj Ventress got hit by a measly blaster bolt on Dathomir and could'nt move her arm afterward. I doubt Ahsoka has any experience with Tutaminis and even if she does, I doubt even the most skilled Jedi could dissipate a suprise attack like that instinctively. No other forces are at work, and I think Ahsoka's resilience stems from her resseruction at the hands of the Daughter. The Daughter transferred her remaining life force to Ahsoka, and I think the personification of the light side of the Force would have a more sturdy and powerful life-force than the average being, granting Ahsoka the side-effect of being more durable. I mean come on, those gunship blasts could damage a tank, and Ahsoka wasnt even injured, barely stunned! Any comments on my theory?
Darth Maul is back!!!!! And he's making up for lost time, time better spent doing what he does best, killing Jedi. That was originally his purpose: To eliminate opponents his master Sidious wanted dead. Now he's in the open and doing it on his own. I almost can't believe he's back. I feel like Im interacting with a flesh and blood ghost. Well without further audieu, here's Maul's Killing resume.
1.Siolo'urmanka -Maul's first known Jedi kill, and arguably his most impressive. Maul killed Manka using his cunning, showing for the first, but certainly not the last time, that Maul is much smarter than he lets on.
2.Qui-Gon Jinn- Maul's last kill before his presumed death, Maul brought the experienced Jinn down with his superior stamina and mastery of Juyo and using the terrain to his advantage.
3.Grohto- Maul's first Jedi kill after his return. Maul killed Master Grohto by stabbing him fatally in the abdomen, after using a woman as a human shield and causing Grohto to hesitate, showing his utter ruthlessness.
4.Ko Solok- Maul killed Solok by stabbing him through the abdomen, throwing his lightsaber like a javelin, showing his mastery of the aggressive lightsaber throw technique.
5. Bruu Jun-Fan- Maul murdered Jun-Fan by kicking him in the midsection with one of his powerful mechanical legs. Jun-Fan must have sustained serious injuries to his vital internal organs, as he died shortly afterward. This displays Maul using a cheapshot. Bruu was an accomplished martial artist, and would certainly not have died, if kicked by an organic limb.
6.Finn Ertay- Maul dueled this Jedi with the help of Savage and stabbed her from behind, showing his ability to use tactical stealthiness.
Thats all for now, but I'm sure this list will continue to grow in the very near-future!!!!!
This would be the awesome hypothetical duel between father and son, the best bounty hunters of their respectable times. Yet who would win? This thread will be written to determine who is best, based on fetas throughout their careers. Keep in mind tha Boba is an unaltered clone of his father, essentially ''biologically'' making them the same person. JANGO: Trained directly by Mandalorians. BOBA: Trained by Jango, who remarked that he was smarter and stronger than he was at 9. JANGO: Jango killed Montross and held his own against Dooku trained Komari Vosa. JANGO: Killed 6 Jedi with his BARE HANDS on Galidraan JANGO:Killed Jedi Master Coleman Trebor in Arena, skill level minimal but a Jedi all the same. JANGO:Chosen as clone template. JANGO: Jango prided himself on physical prowess and was more muscular while Boba liked to outsmart his enemies and was slimmer. JANGO: Bested Obi-Wan Kenobi in a fight and dogfight. JANGO: Lost to Mace Windu, yet its the second most powerful jedi of his time. BOBA: Saved Anakin Skywalker's life from a space slug. BOBA: Able to give Mace Windu a good fight ina confined space in the Chancellor's office. BOBA: Faked his own death, yet still got attacked by a lame mercenary time. BOBA: Held his own against Jedi Master Rahm Kota and rebels and destroyed a Starkiller clone Heroscapers gave Jango 180 hit points and Boba 200 hit points. BOBA: Proxy's Jango module forced Boba to retreat. BOBA: Destroyed an entire Imperial platoon without back-up. BOBA: Held his own against Darth Vader twice. BOBA: Fell into the Sarlacc 3 times! BOBA: Presumably hunted some Jedi during the Purge. BOBA: Fought Yuuzhan Vong during the war. BOBA and JANGO: Both named Mandalore. BOBA: Helped kill an Abeloth with Tahiri Veila. BOBA: Able to match Bossk in physical strength. BOBA: Terrible father. JANGO: Good father. BOBA: Banged Ailyn Vel JANGO: Banged nobody. BOBA: Held off Durge at age 10. BOBA: Curbstomped by Grievous BOBA: Hunted Wookiees BOBA: Broke in and out of Blackfel BOBA: Lost a dogfight to Asajj Ventress. BOBA: Captured by cannabalistic natives on Dagobah
In my opinion, Boba would win but only just and if it came down to hand-to-hand combat, then Jango would take it. Please feel free to add feats that I missed and give myopinion on who you think would win.

You know I wonder how much is true about Vader summoning Force lightning. I just read Darth Vader and the Ghost Prison 3 and when Vader flys into a rage and throws stuff around, thin whisp of visible energy seem to fly around his wrath. Perhaps channeling it from his arms is impossible, but generated from his body during a powerful rage... I don't see how that is imposible.
This is a question that has ben bugging the crap out of me in recent days and I just can't decide. I am a huge Palpatine fan, and would be quick to rally around Sidious, but Vitiate could be able to drain the entire galaxy. Maybe if it can down to a lightsaber... Sidious would win. George Lucas and many other canon sources have said that Palaptine is the most powerful Sith to ever exist, but the continuity is very fluid. Perhaps Vitiate is more powerful.... I e-mailed Drew Karapyshn, but I doubt he will respond or even have an opinion.
This is a very perplexing question, and not so much as the balance that Anakin supposadly restored, but the notion of both using the dark and light side of the Force in sync with each other. The Potentium is no good, because they view the Force as neither light nor dark but gray. A dumb, drab gray. However, the Jed'daii of old believed in a balnce and even had penalties if one strayed to one side of the spectrum too much. That's right. You could be penialized for being too light. Not in terms of morality, mind you, but perhaps not being offensive or agressive enough. While obviously the Jedi realised that this idea was bunk after the Force Wars, Revan, millenia later was able to channel both sides of the Force offensively during his fateful duel with the Sith Emperor. Twin rivers of energy that manifested itself as a flash of light, the Force released in it's purest form. Perhaps Revan had the right idea as well as the Jed'daii. The only real test, would be using the Balance correctly....
