Who was involved in the Stark Hyperspace War?
What I'm saying is that the Republic and Jedi thought that Revan and Malak were the only Sith. Traya, Sion and Nihilus proved them wrong as did the Sith Empire when it retook Korriban.

The Republic versus the Stark Commercial Combine.  The war lasted only a year (44 BBY), and you'll be shocked to learn that it was orchestrated by Darth Sidious as part of his plan to take over the Galaxy.  Notable events from the war include Nute Gunray becoming Vicroy of the Trade Federation, and Finis Valorum becoming chancellor.

Shut up

What I'm saying is that the Republic and Jedi thought that Revan and Malak were the only Sith. Traya, Sion and Nihilus proved them wrong as did the Sith Empire when it retook Korriban.

Did some research last night. Found out 2 things.

1) There is a difference between the Stark HS Conflict and the HSWar.
2) The Stark Conflict took place 44 BBY, while the Hyperspace War took place in 5000 BBY, between the Republic and the Sith Empire. This was back in the time of Naga Sadow, roughly 1500yrs before Revan. The defeat of Sadow resulted in his self-imposed exile to Yavin 4.

Don't know where/if the mix up came from (might just be me), but from reading Cloak of deception, I can't remember whether that was when he was made viceroy, or simply the Neimoidians were left in control of the Federation. I'm inclined to the latter, but the memory is foggy today.

As much as I approve, this thread is more for information and discussion rather than random awesome.

Well, from the books I've read so far I found only the Darth Bane trilogy and now the Plagueis which stands out and shows some exciting intelligence behind the Dark Side. Others seemed to be one dimensional and they couldn't really elevate to a level beyond simple arrogancy to even remembering them so my memories are vague here and there Smiley

On the other hand the whole Lucas universe is a complete mess if we want to dig deeper than the surface. As it was mentioned before, the mind trick is pretty much one point where the concept is bleeding and force push is the other for jedis (however in the D20 RPG it was somewhat regulated in use and wouldn't cause any interference using it on non-living creatures like droids. But everywhere else it's being used with a great smile.)
All seem to go back to the good and bad opposition.
It's my very personal opinion but if the jedi order also has the concept in mind about good and bad and it's just somehow different to the others' approach, then they are not really legitim to "guard the galaxy" Smiley
In my theoretical jedi order there's no good and bad but things as they are. Guarding means intervention and needs a concept to back it up. The Dark Side is also just a label to another concept which is different and - how funny - the whole "light" and "dark" names are established by those who claim to be the light Smiley

So I agree to move away a bit from the core of the movie-line when it comes to research and contemplation. Certainly and interesting discussion. Can't wait for the jedi academy to be set up too Smiley

Plagueis is a stand-alone classic for any Star Wars fanatic. It is the one novel in the canon(or non-canon or legends or whatever) that draws me back time after time & never disappoints.
It can chill you to the bone with its emotional depth in a way no other SW book does.

Not saying I have read them all (but I have read a great deal of em lol)

The Lucas universe & beyond is a mess!  But its our mess & I love it.  Grin

Edit: Ahh, I seem to have commented on something from about a year ago. Apologies. My very late comment stands though. Grin
