No pilot to blow up the Droid control Ship. No more GUNGANS..... brilliant


Of course, there's the small problem of there being no Luke or Leia and no OT. Wink

Ah yes that could be an issue.
Silly as it could seem... how about Padme is secretly a Podracer or she may buy a holiday hut in the Dune Wastelands...... *shakes head*

You all do understand that changing events like this would basically undo the total story of Star Wars? Confused There would be no complete saga then.....

Yes, yes. But we can suspend Star Wars reality for at least a moment, yes? Wink

When I started the thread, I was actually thinking of the EU, but by all means, suspend! Wink

Well I was kinda going with if there were no more Gungans as such... would the Emperor need Jar Jar to help pass the bill in senate???

If it was ment to be EU event. I would have to go with Dash Render didn't accidently kill the bothans. Then no guilt trip. No sacrifice. He could then team up with Talon as a smuggler. The Outlander was awesome ship

My number one change would be: Thrawn does not die in The Last Command. Why? Because Thrawn is one of my all time favorite characters and I'd love to see him back. Imagine Thrawn commanding ships in the Yuuzhan Vong war...Thrawn conquers the Dark Nest...Thrawn is the one to save the day in Invincible rather than Daala...Thrawn becomes Chief of State...Thrawn defeats Abeloth.

I can dream Cool

Runner up is Anakin Solo doesn't die. But I don't want Anakin and Jacen simply changing places. Perhaps Jacen could still have been the one to save the day with the Vong, but Anakin would be the one to save Jacen from the dark side.

Very nice idea there.... would his actions be different from Jacen. Since Jacen were self motivated

This, this right here. Skuldren, you have completely sold me on this plot point. *dreams*

I'd actually vote for still allowing Jaina to off Jacen in the end. But I agree that I wouldn't want Anakin and Jacen simply trading story arcs.

Now it's my understanding that Jacen and Anakin completely swapped characterization when it was decided which was going to die, which makes sense because it's also my recollection that Anakin was more like Jacen is in the NJO in his Junior Jedi Knights series, whereas Jacen was more of the "Luke successor" in Young Jedi Knights.

Now, were this the case and their characterizations weren't swapped, Anakin would essentially undergo the same character arc that Jacen does and ultimately have the union with the unifying Force that defeats Onimi.

I would think that this would completely salvage the Expanded Universe in its current state, because there's no way Lucas would let another Anakin turn to the dark side, thus disallowing LOTF from ever existing.

I if as you say Anakin was the one to defeat Onimi, do you think he would have turned dark tho.
I thought one of the turning points for Jacen to go Sith was to "protect" the galaxy and his daughter.

I would have like to have seen brother vs brother at the end. Not that the sword which Jiana a good character but that Anakin looked up to his brother more so.
