Introducing: Weekly Segments!

I've decided to add a new feature to my blog. Each week Memoirs will be updated with an article filled with everything from trivia that will make the biggest Star Wars fans cringe, to obscure quotes that will have your mind buzzing, not to mention news, and a random image which I will elaborate upon each week. I'll kick off the first 'Weekly Update' with the picture below.

Taken from The Clone Wars episode 'Trespass'; I thought this picture captured both the uniqueness and tension of the episode.

Trivia: In the novel, The Last Command, what is the name of Mazzic's ship? Check back next week for the answer, and be sure to post your own answer in the comments section.

Quote: "Vengeance isn't becoming in a Jedi, Padawon. Your Master died in vain." Try your hand at guessing where this quote is from, and be sure to check back next week for the answer.

News: Sue Rostoni was quoted saying that the Imperial Commando series will likely continue with a new author behind the wheel. For those who aren't aware, former Republic Commando author, Karen Traviss, was slated to create a sequel to the new Imperial Commando series but dropped out due to a conflict with plot lines that where being developed in The Clone Wars.

Come back next week for the answers to the trivia and quote sections, more news and a new image!

Dromund Kaas In The Old Republic

I must admit, when I first learned that the ever popular Knights of the Old Republic video games would be continued in the form of an MMO, I was not very enthusiastic. Seeing how the previous Star Wars MMO (Galaxies) was handled, I didn't have very high hopes, but as more and more information and material is revealed, including a wonderfully visualized trailer, I find myself anticipating this title's release more and more.

One of the aspects that has caught my interest is the variety of Expanded Universe planets that will be featured in the game. Among the previously revealed locales are Nal Hutta (called Hutta here) from the Dark Horse classic, Dark Empire, along with Balmorra from the sequel to Dark Empire, Dark Empire II. Joining into the fray with its first visual appearance in Star Wars is the planet Tython, which was first mentioned in the classic Star Wars RTS, Rebellion.

Both Korribon and Ord Mantell have also been confirmed along with several other planets from the films such as Coruscant and Alderaan.

The latest addition to the ever expanding list of confirmed planets is one very dear to my heart. ;) Dromund Kaas was first seen in Mysteries of the Sith, the expansion pack to what is in my opinion one of the greatest Star Wars video games ever created to date; Dark Forces II: Jedi Knight.

In MotS, you play as Mara Jade who is searching for Kyle Katarn after he mysteriously vanishes while looking for the planet Dromund Kaas. Upon reaching the jungle planet you find Kyle hidden in a Sith temple filled with many ly obstacles. I won't go any farther so as to spoil the last levels, but I will say that I did not expect Dromund Kaas to be in The Old Republic. It was quite a welcome surprise, especially after I saw that the developers would hold true to it's original design from MotS.
With this kind of addition appealing to Fanboys like myself, I must say that I've found a new interest in The Old Republic. Now if only my computer would run it...
