Lol, complaining about Bioware adding new planets, and then using planets made by Bioware for Kotor as examples for great planets we should revisit. The fear of something new is strong with this one.

Could it be that this planet suffers an 'Alderaan' fate and that could be a reason it was largely ignored in the future timeline?

During the Black Talon instance, we are told both the republic and empire are building superweapons. I'm sure we're going to be creating a lot of 'existing' asteroid fields from the future.

I expect to see some empire-mutated Exogorths (space slugs) devastate at least one planet.

I hate Voss. Also, BW didn't create Voss, they just picked an obscure planet in the SWU and established it's people,culture,lore etc.

*blink* What? So, if they changed the name to Boss it would be their creation, but because the name Voss was used years ago in a book with *no* further details, it's not? Are you serious man?

So let me get this right...

Writers creating additional fiction in a fictional universe is...bad...? Really?

I like Voss and the people but I swear it felt derivative of StarCraft: zerglings every where, floating crystals, and humans in mobile homes waiting to lft off at a moments notice.

correct me if im wrong (and as a huge fan of SWTOR i dont think i am) but didnt they also invent Voss? wheres your thread on that? the great thing about SW is that you can just invent planets and **** and say they were recently discovered. and the reason they chose this time period is so they could do just that. then just say that its never been mentioned in the movies/books/lore and stuff. done.
