Schreiber tends to be a major fan of dead people coming back to life. Like for really dead people. Soooo...I would be surprised if they weren't 'really' dead, though I hope that's the case. That would be my favorite outcome. Other options could be a virus that controls the dead body, like in I Am Legend, or a control of the Sith, as you said Andrew.
Really dead people coming back to life just because...I dunno, but I guess that would bug me. Having read some of Schreiber before, though, I tend to think he'll go deeper. So we may be surprised what cause he comes up with.
Also...I sure hope Han and Chewie are in it! But only if they don't get infected/die/etc. If they come 'back to life' and are then cured...hmm...that would be rather odd. Would come close to ruining Han and Chewie's continuing storylines for me! Instead, I'd just have to shun Deathtroopers and declare it noncanon.
I got the Jedi Academy trilogy in hardback for $3 a couple years ago. I acquired another one more recently and sold it on eBay for $35! So it really just depends on where you're able to pick it up.
And with my luck, the hardback books always end up with a 30%-40% sticker a few days after I buy it, no matter how long I wait.
Born To Be Wild reminded me totally of Han Solo. Of course, I'm biased, so...
Eye of the Tiger made me think of Luke.
Wow...a lot of verbal sparring going on this week, eh?
