But that would just be too tempting for fans who can't control themselves. Wink

That's true. I peeked, thinking the vast secrets of the universe and the books would unfurl before me. Though, to be fair, I don't read the children's SW books, so it would have been okay Rolling Eyes

Thanks guys! All I need to know is that they are connected at this point.

I thought they were (especially since there were rumours when they came out that Alex Wheeler was a pseudonym for Jude Watson), but just wanted confirmation.

New column from Andrew (Taral-DLOS), on superweapons in Star Wars. I think this is a brilliant piece. It should be a permanent page on Wookieepedia that can't be edited.

Thanks for your kind words! (I assume this is Austin? I haven't figured out who everyone is on the forums yet; I just know IllogicalRogue is Mark).

But yes, thank you!

Well, if he isn't, I've been labouring under severely wrong impressions for months!

PS: I'm pretty sure MasterAndrew15 is Elyse from EUCast. And nathanbutler is Bethany from Bothan Report!

Yes, this is Austin. And please don't listen to Life, who is being exceedingly unhelpful right now.

I thought Vile Zero wrote the weekly columns. Did he change his name?

Vile writes the "EU Action Reaction", which consists of his opinions on various subjects. Taral (Andrew) is writing a new, second column, titled "The Star Wars Dissection". As you'll see in his previous entries, these are more research based and meant to provide new insights into Star Wars, mostly based on fact instead of just opinion. So, we have two "weekly" columns now, with two different writers.

Does the Star Wars Dissection have it's own thread too?

This thread is really meant to be used for all EUCantina columns, so neither have their own thread. Both will use this thread.

Thanks for clearing that up, OMB. Smile

In that case I want to compliment Taral-DLOS on his excellent piece on superweapons.
What I loved to see was that the old prejudice about the use of superweapons in the Bantam era is finally defunct. I always thought that was undeserved and love to see this in an actual graph!

The only thing I felt that shouldn't have been on the list was the Baffor tree pollen. Which was never really implemented as a weapon and was destroyed by the Vong before the New Republic could use it against them. And even if the New Republic would have used it as a weapon I think I wouldn't really have qualified as a superweapon.
It was easily enough overcome by Tsavong Lah at Ithor when he let his warriors wear dead crab armor. The disabling of the enemies battle armors is more of a biological sabotage act where you take an opponents edge away instead of really incapacitating them.
This should however be taken as just a minor critique Wink
