    This is the project that has strayed farthest from what we know in the Star Wars galaxy. With so much of recent Lucasfilm movies/shows set in the same general era, here is a list of what I want Acolyte to do differently to differentiate itself from other Star Wars:

    1) a more “civilized” era. Remember, the galaxy has not been torn apart by empirical warfare, so there should be more unique cultures and lifestyles represented. This is a galaxy at peace (with the occasional Nihil attack, as mentioned in the books.)

    2) different aesthetics in ships and speeders. This goes hand-in-hand with point #1. A galaxy at peace should convey transportation aesthetics functioning in such a manner. Naboo starfighters come to mind, so things along those lines would be cool to see. This is an opportunity for visual artists to let their minds run wild.

    3) Sith history and backstory. ‘Nuff said.

    4) Jedi with exciting new abilities. Remember, this is the “height” of the jedi order. I want to see jedi that “wow” us with what they are able to do, talents and abilities lost over time. They need to seem powerful and noble in this era. Does not have to be Force Unleashed-strength, but something along the lines of the High Republic novels.

    5) Politics. Yes, I know, fans hated the Phantom Menace for it, but I feel the politics of this era are very important, especially if we are seeing the steps in which the Sith gradually gain forwards momentum .

    I'll be happy to be the first. Like I've said for many years in these forums. I want to see a live action female sith. No. Not in a vision form.

    I want -- especially for this show, which is pretty much a standalone thing that promises "new pockets" of the galaxy & timeline -- to see new things explored (in live action). I don't want just another round of Sith & Jedi butting heads. No, I want the SW universe to grow bigger and explore new things, at least in tandem with whatever dark side stuff we've been promised. Specifically, I would love to see the Nightsister/Dathomir culture(s) explored in live action, and a show where a witch sneaks around and discovers proto-Palpy nefariousness behind the Jedi's backs might be cool. Moreover, I want non-Force stuff to have a central importance, too; there's a huge inflasion risk concerning Jedi/Force stuff in Star Wars, and without ordinary characters and stories to add context and stakes for the Force, those epic lightsaber duels are nothing but flashy nonsense.

    So, I want:
    1. Less force/fewer Jedi than what the fandom seem to ask for. (SW isn't ONLY the Force).
    2. Cool dark/gray morals main character(s). Huge plus for them being female; even huger plus if they're not human (although they need human facial features to broadcast recognizable human emotions to be able to CARRY the show; Wookiees and such are for side-kicks, etc.).
    3. New cultures in SW. I'm not even talking fancy locations and beautiful new vistas, just peoples of different creeds, colors, religions/philosophies, and societies. Make SW bigger, please.
    4. Surprises.
    5. Something terrible, something fascinating, and something cute.
    6. Either an all-in on The Prophecy & setting up the Skywalker Saga ('cause there IS room for seeing all that stuff in a pre-prequel live action project), or, no connection to the Skywalker thing at all. One or the other, no half-measures, please.
    7. No Tatooine, please.
    8. Call-backs/set-ups to S:ASWS & the ST. (I'd love to see Corellia or Hosnian Prime again. Also, I also NEED more abednedos in my Star Wars!).
