A friend of mine recently went to Disney World and visited the Star Wars Shop. And when she got back she told me:

So anyway, the cashier at the shop had an interesting theory. He first talked about how Count Dooku said that if Qui-Gon hadn't died, he would have joined him, and the guy wondered if he really would have. He went on to talk about all the things Qui-Gon did that didn't make sense, and ended by proclaiming that Qui-Gon Jinn set the entire galaxy up to crumble. Have you ever heard this theory? He went into quite a few twisted details, and I think he would have gone on all day if I'd just stood there listening.


Was wondering if anybody'd heard of this before? Sounds very...detailed. But I doubt the cashier made it up. There must be some group out there that thinks that. Confused

Crazy people.

AHAHAHA! I bet it was the weird/crazy guy at Tatooine Traders! He likes to engage everyone in trivia (where he thinks he is the master) and spread his gospel.

Not just me. He's legendary. And not in a good way.

Ah, I see. I'll have to let her know...I'd never of him before. Guess she hasn't either. Well you learn something new every day. Smile

On the topic of Qui-Gon. I would like to see some more books on his past. Jude Watson got into it a little, but I'd prefer something that isn't a children's book. I mean, Jude is great, but I need something more intense. Razz

Anyone else feel that a Qui-Gon book would be cool?

It'd be awesome. I'd love to see him being trained by Dooku. Smile

Get the Legacy of the Jedi / Secrets of the Jedi two in one books then- it's the only one I know that has it other then a Qui-gon flashback.

Maybe I'm wrong, but did Dark Rendezvous mention Qui-Gon and Dooku much? I remember much about the early relationship of Yoda and Dooku, and I kind of recall Qui-Gon...

Dark Rendezvous? I don't remember Qui-Gon being mentioned at all in that one. I remember a bit about Dooku.......Confused Then again, it's been like two years since I read it.

Secrets/Legacy were good for kids' books, but I'd like to see an adult Qui-Gon novel.

It would be neat, but I don't know how much demand there would be after all Qui-gon is so 90s. Rolling Eyes

Well Maul gets plenty of play. The only Jedi we see him kill in the movies is Qui-gon. You'd think he'd have more just for that. But then I'd like an EU 2 pack with Qui-gon and Young Obi-wan.

Qui-Gon needs a story only because he is so boring.
