Make it a worm hole then. Two black holes connected on either end, with massive gravitational forces that balance each other out making travel down the middle possible. A wrom hole can traverse both space and time.

Then the Millennium Falcon meets a small rocket on it's way to Earth from the recently deceased planet Krypton. Fortunately a Green Lantern named Abin Sur stops them from adopting baby Kal-El and sends the rocket on it's way.

That's when they meet the Asgard.

M'juss speculatin' Do we have a fan fiction section? Smile

Laughing Someone should write that. It'd be even more epic than the Star Trek/X-Men book.

It took the Vong 50 years to reach another galaxy but maybe not for the GFFA especially since they have black holes and hyperspace wormholes connecting far distant regions of the GFFA and maybe other galaxies. I just thought it would be fun if in one novel or adventure the Big 3 and co. are in the Millennium Falcon and accidently fall into a black hole and end up in and unknown region of space or an unknown galaxy and face a new unknown threat and go back into the black hole to the GFFA.

That's what black holes and wormholes can do. They maybe portals to far distant regions of space or other galaxies or even other universes and maybe time machines connecting the past or the future. I just that would make an awesome SW hardcover novel adventure for the Big 3 and co.

Very Happy Crying or Very sad Exclamation

I think it would be fun but what got my imagination flowing was the same thing that seems to have everyone else going here.....the how. Perhaps they Millennium Falcon stumbles across a "wormhole generator" and Han fashions it into a controllable drive somehow. That way you could traverse the millions of light years between galaxies in a reasonable amount of time. A kind of Stargate generator without the stargate.

Awesome.

Oh and Padmé, thanks for encouraging my behavior. Very Happy

I think intergalactic travel and exploration and intergalactic wars would push Star Wars in a new direction. In my Post-FOTJ novels thread I mentioned that in the Marvel Comics stories such as X-Men and Avengers there was an intergalactic empire called the Shi'ar and they spread over three different galaxies and had stargates that makes travel between galaxies instantaneous. And there have been many good stories about them like Avengers:Galactic Storm and X-Men:The Rise and Fall of the Shi'ar Empire.

Wouldn't it be awesome if the Galactic Alliance or a GA fleet and/or the big 3 in the Millennium Falcon flew through a wormhole/stargate or black hole and encoutered a similar intergalactic empire and had intergalactic wars but they would have help from an Intergalactic Republic or Rebellion and fought a massive intergalactic space battle in a future Post-FOTJ hardcover standalone or hardcover duology/trilogy?

That would be an awesome antagonist Post-FOTJ.

Very Happy Exclamation

I wouldn't care if they went to another galaxy. If anything, it could be a separate spin-off series along the lines of if Outbound Flight had been succesful.

I also think a whole lot could be explored in Wild Space and the Unknown Regions. Amongst other things, it was never detailed where Daala was hiding out all that time.

Anyways, I'm not that picky, just give me more books.

Well, I am picky, so no going off to other galaxies! This one is big enough without having to make every story so grand that you lose all the personal touches and character driven drama along the way. Like you say, Kurt. Wild Space or the Unknown Regions would be a nice adventure, and a good story. They could make a family day out out of it. Bring the kids, have a picnic, save the galaxy from marauding aliens that they accidently discover and start a war with, play some catch...

I'd be happy to see out side the galaxy, sure it's supposed to be huge, but the map doesn't seem that unexplored these days- which I think is why we don't get too many stories in Wild Space or the Unknown regions they don't want to map it too much- but I'd love to learn about the Vongs Galaxy more- or the Droids who wooped them. Or even the galaxy that is currently colliding with the SWU from Force Heretic....
