    But we weren't "cavemen & women" 200 years ago... :rolleyes: Sure society wasn't like it is today, but it was civilized.

    Of course not! If you read it again you'll see that I was talking about the first jedi, as in "for a thousand generations", i.e. roughtly 25.000 years before ANH. In the real world, we were very much "cavemen & women" 25.000 years ago.

    My point is that a lot can change in 200 years.

    And my point is that a Earth analogue doesn't work, and PTM=1930s equals High Republic=1730s isn't a valid assumption. If that were the case, then the first Jedi - who were for a thousand generations the guardians of peace and justice in the Old Republic - were akin to "cavemen" living in a primitive paleolitic society. I did not challenge your assertion that a lot can change in 200 years, but you seem to challenge my cautioning of using an Earth analogue timeline as a blueprint for what Star Wars history looks like. You called me out, I did not call you out. What is your problem with my argument, please?

    - all the things they probably wouldn't try on film - they should try them...
    - I don't mind movies about other things set in the star wars universe, but FORCE CENTERED subjects should mainly be movies/tv... not JUST movie/tv but don't start an initiative like Project Luminous with the intent to MAINLY be secondary mediums...
    - Yes SW is about a lot of things, but Jedi/Dark Jedi/The Force is what makes SW unique. All the other stuff you can find in all sci-fi across the board.

    Some speculation.

    At the beginning of the PT it appeared that small craft like fighters didnt have hyperspace capabilities and by the end of the PT fighters had the capabilities. Went from no hyperspace capabilities to the rings for hyperspace travel to fighters that simply could all by themselves. Suggesting that the war accelerated development into hyperspace capabilities.

    So going back 200 years I think really only really large craft would have hyperspace capabilities and hyperdrives will be larger devices. Fighters will to an even greater extent be transported around on carriers.

    This is an interesting idea; I like it. But perhaps there has been a recent hyperspace breaktrough in the recent (for the High Republic timeline) past, facilitating broader hyperspace use. This might explain why the Outer Rim remains underexplored at this time, and why exploration is a major facet of the new setting.

    Cool stuff.

    Fifth Head of Cerberus is neither but a triptych of stories by Gene Wolfe and a classic in modern science fiction. His narrative style almost poetic and dreamlike.

    In it's own way, SOLO made small ship Hyperspace travel feel.... NEW. And I'm not talking about GFFA-nitrous boost sequence, either.

    So, there's that.

    What if still at that time Hyperspace travel is different. You have to make several/many jumps to go on even smallish journeys. So the baddies can do something to the known areas where people jump in and out of. What if hyperspace requires like accelerators and arent even onboard ships. Like the rings the fighters use in PT, but even for large ships. Maybe not even mobile.

    Meaning that any kind of space travel is likely to take weeks if not decades... with multiple generations being born before they get to the destination and the reason why they made that initial decision becoming distorted over time. Sounds like the genesis of a good story.

    I dont know if it changes the time that much. It really means in my view that in the 200 years since hyperspace technology change to allow for turns while in hyperspace. Back then you would have to drop out to change direction and then initiate another jump after turning left or right by some degree. It is space so many different directions, but you get the idea. Navicomputers PT and beyond could do that while in hyperspace, but sometime in the past they couldnt. These points where ships come out could be points where conflicts occur and disrupt the state of the galaxy.

    Star Wars, for me, works best when it’s a three layered cake: societal, spiritual, personal > government, religion, relation. Each layer affects, and is affected by, the other two. Lucas used this model to delve into the premise of our better natures being corrupted by our darker impulses and how our hope can always redeem us.

    If whatever this project is trying to say for itself is voiced in conjunction at each layer, then I’ll probably be into it. If there’s a disconnect and what’s happening with the Republic (for example) isn’t also reflected in the ethos of the Jedi or the interpersonal bonds of the characters, then I’ll probably check out.

    Honestly, I don't buy into that whole redemption thing. Real war is often messy and driven by perceptions of ideological, religious and national interest. Take the Thirty Years War in the 1600s, initially all of the participants, be they Swedes, Prussians, French, Italians and the many other nations that participated had the belief that they were in the right.

    A war that began as a regional dispute when Ferdinand II attempted to force Bohemia to become Catholic. A move followed by the defenestration of Ferdinand's representatives in Prague and a rebellion that attracted interested parties from the nascent Swedish Empire to the Catholic League and it soon became a mess that heaped misery on the European people with entire generations being born in a world of conflict.

    Information on the Thirty Years War:
    Myself, I would enjoy it if Star Wars was explored from this angle.

    I'm actually excited for this. I know people dislike the idea of new SW content that's not a movie or TV show, but I'm open to novels and comics. The only bad thing is that it makes the idea of an Old Republic movie sound unrealistic.

    This all sounds very fresh and cool to me and I am definitelly stoked for the High Republic! I'm going to try and stay on top of the canon on this one, in preparation for the eventual Film and TV projects that will come. Can't wait! :D

    Let us all approach this with an open mind. Be open to new intellectual and sensory experience and elevate our consciousness to new perceptions and understandings of spirituality. Repeat after me. Star Wars is love. Star Wars is life. Star Wars is the beginning. Star Wars is the end.
