    Greet ideas. Here are mine....

    After the destruction of Starkiller the Resistance is likely to be overconfident. I want to see the resistance attack the First Order home world in an all out assault. The attack fails and the resistance suffers a hearvy defeat. Ackbar can say: "I knew it was a trap". What I would like to see then is how the Resistance fleet is hunted troughout the galaxy by the First Order but each time still manages to make a near escape so that the fleet survives for a final battle in Episode IX. It is also likely that Luke and Rey are hunted troughout the movie, but make a final stand, with the resistance and Finn showing up in just the right moment. Then Luke will appear to sacrifice himself in a fight against the knights of Ren. Rey and Finn make their escape on the Falcon and are thus finally rejoined ("We will see each other again. I believe that" -Rey in episode VII). In any case I want the resistance in a deplorable state at the beginning of Episode IX, otherwise you would not have that David vs Goliath feel so peculiar to the saga.

    -- It would be great to see the Resistance do a large scale covert operation against the First Order. (covert/spy work associated with the OT occurred off-screen)
    -- I want to see a coalition of various worlds supporting and supplying the Resistance, though other systems succumb or pledge allegiance to the First Order.
    -- It would be neat to see the Resistance needing to find something... give them a MacGuffin.
    -- I want Lando to come back and teach the Resistance how to do the maneuver he did at the Battle of Tanaab.

    That would be neat to see, but it might perhaps be treading too close to what we'll see in Rogue One I think, provided it is about the covert mission to swipe the Death Star plans.

    They're currently slated to come out only 6 months from each other too, so it'd feel all too familiar if it played any major part of the film.

    I would rather the Resistance is disbanded and its personnel rejoin what's left of New Republic Military and help defend the border worlds of the Republic from the attacking First Order while the Republic rearms. Essentially, I don't want the Resistance to exist for the rest of the trilogy. For God's sake we don't need a replay of the Rebel Alliance running and hiding from the Empire. I trust the writers/directors to be more original for the rest of the trilogy.

    This right here.

    I want the republic to go to war with the first order and all other imperial fragments. Play it out like a world war two movie. You could have Finn learn to fly and join poe's squad I.E. Epic fleet engagements, or have Poe join finn leading troops on boarding missions and covert strikes (serenity style heist). The Jedi will be busy hunting for crystals and other force users while they prepare for battle with snoke.

    I want Lando to be the main supplier for the Resistance, giving him a meaningful part. Not just a cameo.

    I know it's highly unlikely, but how cool would it be if a more rational Imperial fragment group sided with the New Republic, going to war against the First Order... featuring stormtroopers wearing armor very close to the OT style. OT-styled stormtroopers going against First Order stormtroopers... Star destroyers and TIEs against star destroyers and TIEs... I'd be in heaven.
