There's a bonus for KotOR fans: you get to see characters from the games about ten years previous. For example, you get an idea of why Carth is well-known and highly-respected, and what kind of guy he was before Malak and Karath kicked his pupp...I mean glassed his homeworld.

I've got the first 8 volumes of his adventures sitting on the nightstand next to my bed. Probably my favorite EU character.

His real force power, of course, is that he is the epicenter of an epic vortex of highly improbable, unpleasant coincidences and terri-bad luck. And the consequences ultimately hit the bad guys even harder than they hit him and his pals.

I never noticed Carrick Station's name before. Awesome. Wonder what he did to be remembered?

I was kinda sad that there was no codex entry for the Carrick Station, but if you look at the malaxy map and click on carrick station without traveling there. you can read that it was a rather resiliant station named after the equally resiliant republic hero. I think we have yet to see or read what made Zayne a hero of the republic, maybe it will be covered in the new mini series. The issue came out 11th of january it called KOTOR: War

Sorry for the confusion, BTW, but how else call people following the Republic ?

Zayne is one of my favorite characters in Star Wars. I play Empire so I was unaware of your fleet's name. I am tots jelly.

Also: As far as I remember Carth was the only notable Republic officers aware of Zayne's deeds... so why does he get a station named after him? His was a more personal story.

Maybe Zayne did really heroic stuff in KOTOR War (the new series)

Maybe also he got lionized because the republic needed BADLY heroes (like in KOTOR Comics, where Marn and his Trandoshean become war heroes for saving a troop transport on Serocco, while in fact the whole fleet except one shuttle was wasted and the ground forces nuked...and got war movies made about them)

That is so something Marn would try to exploit
