There's no excuse Padme. I bet right as we speak there is a lonely Crosscurrent paperback sitting in a Walmart near you with a $5.99 sticker, just waiting to find a home. Wink

by "The Hole" are you referring to the whole Bar scene/chapter? That was actually one of my favorite parts. Up until then I was kind of board.

Yeah. I was feeling kind of sick that day so it might have something to do with it. Usually I don't mind greasy and grimy scenes, but this one just made me feel queasy... of course it helps if there's a character like Threepio or Obi-Wan along.

Ah, but I'm a broke college student and that $5.99 could be used for food. Wink

Overall I really liked the book. My only complaint is the ending was a little anticlimatic.

I was thinking that it was located were the Falcon's cockpit is and that somehow it could also be flown from some other location. That and/or the cockpit is located between the mandibles.

Yeah I thought it was where the standard cockpit would be, I had not thought of the regular cockpit being in the middle. Hmmm.

Just glanced at wookieepedia, the YT-2400 is different than the Falcon, it has a rounded disk hull with no pronounced arms in the front. Hmm, maybe the shuttle sat behind the cockpit.

That's what I thought - it said the shuttle replaced the escape pods. The diagram on wookieepedia shows the escape pods on the port side and on the starboard side behind the cockpit.

I'm thinking the shuttle would have been behind the cockpit, facing away. Kind of like a deluxe escape pod or handy dock port.

Don't have time for a full or even partial review right now. I read it awhile back, but just thought I'd mention what I thought: I loved it! It was, to put it simply, a breath of fresh air. I really, really enjoyed it. Smile

I was reading Paul S. Kemp's Q&A thread on theforce.net, and noticed he mentioned that the One Sith would be returning in the Crosscurrent sequel. Cool
