Actually Plo Koon was the third best pilot in the Order.
Glad you brought that betrayal up. Revan was almost killed by Malak. If Bastila hadn't saved him, Revan would have died. So what does that say? Nothing. Unless Revan knew it was coming, then it says alot. Revan knew Malak would betray him again, but he didn't expect it at that time.
Plo Koon is in a similar boat. He didn't see it coming.
Excuses eh? So the facts are just excuses. /sigh
I'm done here.
Not sure you should have added that 1st bit, cause now hes gonna ask. "Well if hes the 3rd best pilot in the Order, then how come he got shot down?"
See! I beat him to the punch!
