Karen Traviss recently announced that RC will be followed by new books called "Imperial Commando." Let the speculation begin!

Oh, I saw that. I am so excited! The commandos are quite dear to my heart, and I absolutely love Traviss' works. Anything she can come up with about the commandos/clones/Imperial troopers/Mandalorians, I will be more than happy to read. I'm currently trying to get my hands on In His Image and Two-Edged Sword.

But anyway, back to Imperial Commando...I'm hoping that'll show us how the clones transitioned from being clones to stormtroopers. Though they are one and the same...you know what I mean. Because that's always been of interest to me. The Empire had to do something with the clones that were still alive...unless they went with a mass killing, which would just be...senseless as well as pointless. So I would assume the clones became stormtroopers (except for the ones that got away) until they eventually died off. Which shouldn't have been too long. At which point regular recruits would have completely taken over that role. Something they'd probably slowly been doing since the beginning of the Empire.

I am excited by anything Karen Traviss writes. The big question is will she go completely away from the RC characters or will she focus on a new set of characters? My guess is that it will be new characters.

The whole transition from clones to recruits could also make for an entertaining read. I wonder if she will address the inability of movie storm troopers to properly aim. Wink

Well, I e-mailed Karen congratulating her about TCW novel and asking her about the IC. When I said there are really two possibilities-- show how the old RC become IC or use the existing Imperial Commandos, she told me there are never only two possibilities. We don't know who reacts the Order 66 and how they do as well.

However, I'm guessing new characters with mention/cameos of the old characters.

Hmmm...I am curious as to what you mean by, "Existing Imperial Commandos..." Confused

Imperial Commandos aren't new; in fact, Crix Madine was the one who founded and created them. For me, see their Databank and Wookieepedia entries. Like I said, she only told me there are never two options, and I can see how that can work.

Ooohhh...see, I didn't know that. Well that is most interesting. Even a new book all about new characters like that would be a lot of fun! So I'm still excited to see what we get. Very Happy

You learn something everyday, that's for sure Very Happy I, too, am excited no matter what way it goes. I can see it connecting with TFU, I can see it not. There are many ways Karen can take it.

Wow - thats awesome. I totally forgot about the existing Imperial Commandos. It would be cool to see Crix Madine in there as well.

just to throw this out there but wasn't the start of the RC novels part of the promo for the RC video game? So that could mean any IC novels will also be promo for a IC video game. At any rate I'm exited. I kind of like reading the SW novels that are about non-main characters from the movies (I guess I just like the idea of letting my imagination decide what happened to them afterwards), so this is great news for me!

It was indeed. I could see an IC game or IC inclusion in a Battlefront III.

I'm hoping we get to see Delta squad in there. I imagine that Delta squad will obey order 66, but some of the squad will not survive the encounter. I would at least like to see their reaction to the loss of some of their squad, and their training techniques.. Twisted Evil

Maybe we'll also find out what happens to Sev, provided his fate isn't revealed in the up coming RC novel of course.

Sev? Or do you mean Fi? It has slipped my memory what last was up with Sev. Hmm...somebody refresh my memory.

Sev is/was the sniper for Delta Squad. The RC game ends with us not knowing his ultimate fate.
