My question: Who tried to surrender Mon Calamari to the seperatists?

After he tells you the entire history, just mention that it sounds like hooey.  They get POed, attack, and then you have to wipe them all out, in self defence.  After doing so, search the body of the storyteller (or cheif, I forget) and take back your Krayt Dragon pearl.

Also, the Aquish, or however you say the name of the non-Ackbar race living on Mon Cal?

Wouldn't that be the Quarren? I guess Aquish isn't that far off...

It's Quarren. Mon Calamari and Quarren always go together.

Well, I'm looking for a specific person. A Quarren, yes.

...and I was "true" light sider in KOTOR, so I tried to do as they told me. You know- out of respect and all.

Pretty close, Zogo, though you've got a wovel wrong- it's Tikkes, but it's obvious that you were thinking of the right guy, so just take it.

Yes, Ep. I is a product of Zogo's imagination, and he somehow found a way to make it real. Thus, if we destroy Zogo (and by implication, his imagination), we'll be rid of the abomination!

The good things about Ep. I is that it set a pretty darn decent new standard for lightsaber combat.

My question? Wait for it.

Episode I did make Lightsaber combat look a lot more attractive to Star Wars, but it also made Jedi the ultimate cash cow.

Everytime I play SWG and come across some kid who wants to be a Jedi, I want to him and his parents in the back of the head with a gaffi stick.

We're not all bad jedi...sure, the jedi shouldn't be there...but..um...maybe Episode III fucked up the continuity, and some kind of series comes out called "THE JEDI WHO SURVIVED AND THEN HAD AN ORGY"?

Perhaps.
Those prequels like fucking with continuity.

It's a big Galaxy, I'm sure a few escaped the purge by hiding in places rich in dark side energy (Like Yoda) or just forced the force from their bodies like in KOTOR 2. Maybe some hid their children who were force sensitive on farms around the Galaxy like with Luke.

The easiest way to limit the Jedi population in SWG is to get Vader to hunt you and give the Dark and Light Jedi there own factions to battle with.

They promised another Jedi system revamp at the Fanfest which has given me some hope. I've got nothing against Jedi if they keep the thing secret and don't act like a smacktards who smacktalk and harass.

Also, there was that sentient tree who was a Jedi master.  He survived, but I guess no one else that knew him did, and being a tree he was stuck where he was, so no one knew about him until Luke found him by accident.

Nope, the Officer worked for Daala. And Thrawn. And a few other warlords. Keep trying.

Pellaeon, perhaps?  He certainly falls under the "seen it all" category.

And David: sentient tree?  Was that in YJK?

Um...a tree jedi?

That sounds like hooey.

The only EU thing I have ever read is the Boba Fett series, and about 3 pages of the IG88 story in the Tales of the Bounty Hunters book.

So, which series are good?
Comics, I don't have access to, really...as there is no comic stores around here.

Off the top of my head:

Heir to the Empire
Dark Fleet Rising
The Last Command
Spectre of the Past
Vision of the Future
-by Timothy Zahn

The Jedi Academy Trilogy
-by Kevin J. Anderson

The Truce at Bakura
-by ?

The Han Solo Trilogy
-by A. C. Crispin

Any of the Anthologies, and a bunch of other good ones I've forgotten.  I'd take a pass on the X-Wing series, unless you can stand the most horribly awkward dialogue (and internal monologue) ever published.  On a related note, stay away from I, Jedi if you value your sanity.  It's the Star Wars Christmas Special of the EU, as far as I'm concerned.

Wait, you'd recommend Jedi Academy Trilogy over the X-Wing series for reasons of awkward dialogue? DOES NOT COMPUTE.

Also, the Allston X-Wing books are quite funny and clever.

Why?  With all the different aliens in the Star Wars universe, I don't see anything all that strange about the idea of sentient plant life.  Trees are living things, so there's no reason that a sentient one couldn't learn to use the force.

Anyway, I find it a lot easier to accept the idea of a tree Jedi than the idea of an animal that somehow generates an anti-force zone.

Slackster: Actually, I haven't read JA in forever.  It's just when I think of lame dialogue, the first word that comes to mind afterward is "Stackpole."

And I, Jedi...grrr...even hearing the M-word is better than that.  Worst.  Crossover.  Ever.

What objects did each of the four main characters from the Young Jedi Knights series (Jacen Solo, Jaina Solo, Tenel Ka, and Lowbacca) use for their lightsaber crystals and hilts?

So... wait... let me get this tree.....

There's a tree.... and it's in a forest standing there rooted in the ground...... and also.... also it mastered the force.  What kind of force powers does it have?  Like.... force sprout leaves or something?

On top of that.... Luke just happened to find this magical tree?  hmmmm......

yeah... makes perfect sense _

No.

Ood Bnar was originally a tree-like fella. He was basically huminoid, though he was a but more wooden than most.  wink He was also a Jedi, and a guardian of Jedi knowledge stored on the planet Ossus.

Now, the resident bad-ass Sith at the time, one Exar Kun, set's off a super-nova in a near-by star system, sending waves of lethal radiation towards Ossus. The Jedi are helping to evacuate the planet, when Kun comes there seeking scrolls and books and things to help him in his fight against the Jedi. Kun finds Bnar, and confronts him, but Bnar accelerates his own life-cycle, changing into what is for all intents and purposes a tree, blocking Kun's way. Kun get's pissy, but then shrugs it off, assuming that the incoming radiation will kill Bnar. It doesn't, and Bnar stays there for the next 4,000 years, 'til Luke comes to the planet looking for... something. Can't remember what. Bnar ends up helping Luke by pwning a Dark Jedi, but dies as a result.
