1. Would you prefer to be a Jedi Knight or a Sith Lord? – I would prefer to be a Sith Lord, because their views of the Force are more active than the Jedi.  In addition, they have much better powers and do not fear emotion.


2. What are your Favorite Worlds? – I love Coruscant for its bustling atmosphere, its architecture, all of the nice places one can go to, and its similarity to real-life cities as New York, Chicago, London, Tokyo, and Beijing.  It is also for that reason that I would love to visit it, but not live in it.  I prefer Naboo for its peaceful and serene atmosphere, as well as its beautiful landscapes, nice people, emphasis on education, and great architecture.  


3. What type of Lightsaber, Lightsaber color, and Fighting style would you have? – I would have a standard hilt with a dual-phase function.  Since I am a Sith Lord, my lightsaber would have a red blade.  My primary form would be Form V: Shien/Djem So.  I would also borrow some elements from Form III: Soresu, Form IV: Ataru, Form VI: Niman, and Form VII: Juyo.


4. What are your Favorite Species? – I love humans; mostly because I am one (and almost all of my favorite characters from Star Wars are humans) I also love Twi’leks for their sex appeal, Zabraks for their physical capabilities, Banthas for their fur and cute design, and Wampas, mostly because they are the abominable snowmen done right.


5. What are your Favorite vehicles? – I love the Jedi starfighters for their sleek designs and capabilities.  I also really like the X-Wings and ARC-170s for the same reasons.  In addition, I’m also a fan of speeder bikes.  I also love the yellow speeder Anakin and Obi-Wan flew when they chased after Zam Wesell.  (Hayden Christensen called it the “Banana Boat” speeder)


6. If you were a Jedi, which Master would you want? – My Jedi Master would be either Qui-Gon Jinn or Obi-Wan Kenobi.


7. If you were a Sith, which Master would you want? – My Sith Master would be Darth Plagueis.  


8. If you were a Sith, what would your “Darth” title be? – Darth Lirium


9. What is your favorite Star Wars movie and why? – I am aware that this is going to turn some heads, but my most favorite Star Wars movie is Revenge of the Sith.  To begin with, it was the most action-packed of the Star Wars movies, with five lightsaber duels and even opening with an eye-popping space battle over Coruscant.  In addition, the action also complimented the story very well.  Examples include the duel with Count Dooku, which was a setup by Palpatine for Anakin to kill Dooku so Skywalker could be next in line for the new apprentice, and Obi-Wan’s duel with Grievous as foreshadowing of his final duel with Darth Vader.  Revenge of the Sith had arguably the most exciting lightsaber duel in the entire saga: the duel between Darth Vader and Obi-Wan Kenobi on Mustafar.  The lighting, musical score, tone, choreography, and anger-driven feel to it were amazing and it is always fun to watch.  It was not simply action for action’s sake, and I cared about what was going on.  It also got to the point of the prequels; it did not drag anything along, and it knew how to make the story coincide with the action very well without making it feel forced.  Anakin develops from being a whiny and immature subadult to being a courageous warrior in battle and a loving (if somewhat overprotective and eventually obsessive) husband.  He is still quite arrogant and a bit whiny, but he treats others with more respect now, and even advises Obi-Wan to be patient at one point.  Anakin is also much more mature now, as evidenced when he apologizes to Obi-Wan for his arrogance and not being promoted to Jedi Master.  Obi-Wan truly shows what a great Jedi he is in this movie.  Not only is he a master lightsaber duelist and user of the Force, but he carries himself in any situation without hubris and with incredible confidence and wisdom, be it facing General Grievous or a pre-cyborg Darth Vader or delivering Luke to Owen and Beru.  He becomes the quintessential Jedi Master: someone who is modest, wise, and thoughtful, albeit with a dash of charm and sarcasm.  He has shown that he has earned his place in the Jedi Order as well as in our hearts as a great Jedi Master, and shows us all what a great Jedi Master is.  It also has one of my absolute favorite scenes in Star Wars: the Birth and Rebirth sequence, where Padme gives birth to Luke and Leia as Darth Vader is being reconstructed as a cyborg.  Additionally, every time I watch Vader rising up on the medical table, my hair stands up, and I gape in both awe and horror.  I always finish the movie on an emotional high, especially after the ending scene.  Overall, it was the richest in both action and emotion, and I will cherish it until the day I die.


10. What is your least favorite Star Wars movie and why? – My least favorite is Attack of the Clones, mostly because the second act was really slow, focusing too much on Anakin and Padme’s romance and Obi-Wan’s investigation.  It had a good payoff (which was Yoda kicking ass with a lightsaber) but it also had some really awkward moments and made me feel awkward myself (“I hate sand” anyone?)  I feel that some of the second act could have been cut out, and a lot of the dialogue was really cheesy and corny.  I understand that Revenge of the Sith had this problem in varying degrees (Balcony scene, anyone?) but Attack of the Clones was the worst in regards to dialogue, emptiest in regards to action, and leaves me feeling somewhat unsatisfied.  I like the movie, but I’m not blind to its faults.  


11. If you could write your own Star Wars novel, what would it be about? – I would like to write a few sequels to Star Wars: Darth Plagueis, looking at the years preceding, during, and after the Clone Wars, all through the eyes of Palpatine.  It would be great to see the events of Attack of the Clones, Revenge of the Sith, A New Hope, The Empire Strikes Back, and even some of Return of the Jedi from the point of view of the man who orchestrated the Clone Wars, climbed his way to absolute power, created the empire, corrupted the Chosen One and even attempt to corrupt his son.  They already did this with both him and Plagueis in Darth Plagueis; so why not do the same for what happens in the future for Sidious?


12. Which film has your favorite soundtrack? – I cannot choose which movie has the best soundtrack.  Every note, every melody, every theme, and every hook, is beautiful, sinister, lovely, haunting, endearing, and amazing.  Star Wars has helped develop John Williams’ status as one of the greatest film composers of all time.  He pours his heart and soul into every track; there is no better composer for Star Wars than him.  However, if you bent me over and forced me to choose, I would have to pick Revenge of the Sith for such epic tracks as “Battle of the Heroes”, “Anakin’s Dark Deeds” and “Anakin’s Betrayal”.
 

13. In your opinion, what is the best thing about the EU? – As cliché as this answer is, I would have to say that I love how the EU develops characters that were barely seen in the movies, turning them into more developed characters.  Let us take Plo Koon, for example.  In the movies, he is simply an extra.  He hardly does anything, and he gets shot down on Cato Nemoidia by his clone troopers.  In the Expanded Universe, he is one of the wisest and most endearing Jedi Masters.  In the EU, he is a very likable guy and has a fatherly kind of warmth.  Kit Fisto is another example.  He was just an extra in the movies.  In the EU, he was a charming, funny, light-hearted, and outgoing individual.

 
14. In your opinion, what is the worst thing about the EU? – The problems regarding continuity is a huge one, especially with The Clone Wars (ex. Barriss Offee turning to the Dark side, Obi-Wan’s duels with Grievous, Anakin’s duels with Dooku, Ahsoka, Yoda receiving a vision of Order 66 and not telling anyone to name but a few)  


15. What does Star Wars mean to you? – Star Wars is more than just a fictional universe.  It is more than just lightsaber duels, backwards talking wisdom, wise Jedi Masters, evil Sith Lords, heroic rebels, space battles, and bizarre aliens.  It is more than about two different clans of Samurai monk-like warriors; one devoted to peace and justice, the other devoted to destruction and power.  It is more than lightsabers, blasters, spaceships, droids, speeders, and explosions.  Star Wars is about love, betrayal, freedom, tyranny, greed, oppression, friendship, working together, and being the best person you can be.  Star Wars shows us how a young man can become corrupt by a fear of loss and a desire for power and in the process become an evil monster.  In addition, Star Wars shows us how his son can go on his heroic journey, and along the way, find and touch the good that was always in his father.  Star Wars shows us how just because you have the potential to be the best of the best, that does not mean that you are automatically better than anyone else.  It is not how much potential you have; it is what you do with it.  If you want respect, you earn it.  Star Wars shows us that teachers come in all shapes and sizes.  Star Wars shows us that by working together, we can overcome any obstacle.  Star Wars shows us that a small band of rebels can beat a mighty empire.  Star Wars shows us that love can overcome any Force power and any weapon.  Star Wars shows us that someone who may dote on you like their favorite nephew or grandson can indeed be a manipulative and evil bastard.  Star Wars shows us how one man with a great vision can turn that vision into a multi-billion dollar franchise.  Star Wars shows how a movie series can create its own mythology.  Star Wars teaches one to become the best person they can become.  


May the Force be with you.  Always.
I feel as if I should have done this on May the 4th or Revenge of the 5th (Or Revenge of the 6th, as I think it should be)

Anywho, I am pleased to finally get this thing done; I've wanted to do it for sometime.  

NO PREQUEL BASHING AND NO GEORGE LUCAS BASHING!  I CANNOT STRESS THAT ENOUGH!

With that said, do feel free to fave and comment.  Flame wars are not permitted, and trolls are not welcome.  Remember: no one likes a pompous blowhard.

Feel free to do this Questionare if you want to.

Star Wars belongs to Disney.

I agree with you about the prequels, the focus was more on the world build and setting the story rather than the actual war itself, which is what most fans wanted and why it is so despised.  Heck even the Simpsons made a joke how they only wanted to watch that Star Wars parody for the action and not for the story.

The problem with the EU is that they are made by independent writers with no real connection to George Lucas and only have a few notes from his concept folders to work with.  Basically they are just fanfiction that the authors are allowed to sell.

The thing about the Jedi and the Sith, the Jedi preaches that they are the servants of the Force.  They only do what is good for the whole.  If they have to allow millions of people to die to restore the natural balance then that's what they'll do.  So they won't go out of their way to help anyone unless the Force tell them to.

The Sith in the other hand believe that they are the masters of the Force, and that anything they do is the right course of action, no matter what other people say.  So they are free to help or hurt whoever they want and whenever they want.

Classic case of both sides being right, but wrong at the same time.

I know; the prequels were about setting up the events that would lead to the classics.  The first two were simple setups, while Revenge of the Sith got to the point with the story while simultaneously going all killer, no filler with the action.  I remember that Simpsons episode; it's been a while since I've seen it (Cosmic Wars, right?)  

The EU is actually fanfiction DONE RIGHT; they were very well-written and developed some lesser used and lesser known characters into very well developed ones.  

As for the Jedi and Sith, the Sith ultimately wanted to achieve immortality, whereas the Jedi can maintain their identities in the Force.  As Qui-Gon Jinn told Yoda, this act comes from the release of self, not the exaltation of it.  So I can respect the Jedi for that.

The Jedi are slaves of the Force's will, whereas the Sith impose their will over the Force; that is why I prefer the Sith over the Jedi.

Good point there; they're both right and wrong simultaneously.  It reminds me of a Geek Rant when he discusses the Light Side and the Dark Side to see which side of the Force is stronger.  You can check it out on YouTube if you're interested.  

Thank you for reading, and thanks for the comment.

I don't remember the Simpsons episode, there are too many to keep track of.

The problem with the EU just like all fanfiction, is that they put their own spin on the lesser known characters which may or may not be the actual concepts.  Like in a lot of the Old Republic stories they tend to make the Jedis as like the Justice League or Avengers, where they just go off vigilante style dispensing lightsaber justice.  Fans were upset that the Jedis turned out to be nothing more than gloried policemen in the prequels.

Actually the Sith wants ultimate power.  Like everyone else, they understood that death is an absolute.  I think it was only with Darth Plaugus that they started obsessing with immortality.

Jedi are not really slaves.  After all Obi Wan did say in the original that in addition to controlling their actions, the force also listens to their commands.  So it really more of a partnership.

I do; I just have not seen it in a while.  

Jedi were not meant to be superheroes or like the Justice League or the Avengers; they were meant to be simply the Galactic police force (eventually they had to become warriors again during the Clone Wars)  I don't see anything wrong with that.  Although you do have a point about the authors creating their own spins on lesser known characters.

The Sith do crave absolute power, that's true.  With Plagueis, he did desire to live forever.  

Jedi are partners of the Force, especially Qui-Gon and Obi-Wan.  The Living Force's philosophy of "Feel, don't think.  Use your instincts." was something Qui-Gon believed in, and Obi-Wan eventually adopted the same wisdom while teaching Luke.  Qui-Gon once said that "Nothing happens by accident."  He feels that the Force guides us on whatever path it creates, and the Force can speak to us.  

But I like how the Sith control the Force themselves, they are not just partners.  It seems to me that if you have power, you must control it, not just be partnered to it.

Which reminds me; I have to mention the complaints regarding the midichlorians.  It is often said that midichlorians are the Force, and that they destroy the mysticism.  This could not be any farther from the truth; midichlorians, as explained by Qui-Gon to Anakin, help us communicate with the Force.  They are messengers, not generators.  The Force is still an energy field that surrounds everything and binds everything together.  The midichlorians simply tell us the will of the Force and help us communicate with it.  The higher your count, the more deeply connected you are to the Force.  Think about it this way; if one is strong in the Force simply BECAUSE, then what is the point?  Then anyone could use the Force, including Han Solo.  Would Han be even half the character he was if he were able to use the Force in the first place?  

Just food for thought.  :)

I always like what you have to say; thanks again for the reply.  I like talking to you.

One of the biggest problems and biggest mistakes that people have made about the midichlorians is that they think it's a bacteria or virus inside specific individuals.  Which causes them to think that anyone can become force sensitive with a simple blood transfusion or something.  What they failed to realize, probably because they weren't paying attention to the exposition Qui-Gon was giving, is that midichlorians live inside each and every cell in the body.  Anakin didn't just have over 9000 in his blood, he had over 9000 in each and every cell in that blood sample.  So even if he did give a blood transfusion that still won't be nearly enough midichlorians to make that other guy force sensitive.  In order to make someone force sensitive you'd have to replace all of their bodily fluids and major organs to do that.  This is why even though Anakin was practically chopped in half and nearly burned alive, he's still stronger than most Jedi, because his remaining cells still had that high midichlorian count.  If the midichlorians were just a bacterial infection, then he should have been as weak as a padawan after all that.

Of course we've seen that there are artificial means of giving people the means to channel the force.  The Night Sisters are able to use the force through potions and chanting and they can force midichlorians into one's body.

True that.  It is also acknowledged that Darth Vader's power was only 8/10ths of his master's, Darth Sidious, and that had he not been mutilated on Mustafar, he would have been twice as powerful.

Ironic that Vader had the title Dark Lord of the Sith during the original trilogy when his master and a more powerful Sith Lord was still alive.  Traditionally he should have only gotten the title after killing his master.
