No but great thread, another period of Star Wars history I have now been enlightened on!

And I'd like to repeat a character suggestion that I've mentioned before: Asajj Ventress. I don't know if you know much about this character but if you do, I'd love to see her.
Yes. I am a Thrawn fanboy. Epic character is epic.

As for Ventress. I would love to do a thread on her, but right now most of her activities take place in the Clone Wars. Like I did with Plo Koon and Dooku, I would have to leave out Ventress' activities during the Clone Wars, which would make for a very short thread.

I'll probably do a thread on her once TCW raps up or Ventress gets killed (unlikely).

Oh yeah, that's what you said last time!

Because Aurbere's stuff are much more coherent, condensed and easier to read.

*Mind Trick* There is no Wookieepedia, there is The Historian.

Thrawn is the greatest military mind in Star Wars and perhaps in Sci-fi, Ackbar and Picard being his closest rivals. In the end though, with everything taken into consideration: Thrawn is Kasparov and Ackbar/Picard are Karpov. Very close match but Kasparov won. Thrawn not only comes from a race that is more tactically inclined than other races, he is a genius, and as Ackbar himself said, Thrawn was the greatest commander in history. The best comparisson for Thrawn is, I would say, Gneghis Khan: Absolute Genius and can only be stopped by death. ( I would have said Alexander, but Alexander was stopped by mutiny not death. Also he can be compared to Suvorov and Napoleon as Suvorov never Lost a battle and was outnumbered most of the time, and Napoleon is considered the greatest military mind in history, just like Thrawn). This is the man who actually got respect out of Palpatine, which is a remarkable feat, considering anyone who questioned the Emperor in his face usually ends up dead. It is a pity he died, would have been useful against the Yuzzan Vong.
