YES.. Well no.. sort of. It happened in the PAST ? a Long time ago ? BEFORE we existed ? or is it in the future. Always wondered about that. I try not to think too hard on it though

A long time ago in some distant galaxy there existed a collection of humanoid races. These races, being very old, developed advanced technology in that time. What follows is a tale of a dark time in their history, a time of corruption, civil war, and rebellion.

It's essentially like the Protheans from Mass Effect. A race that lived long ago that was much more advanced than humans at the time (we only advanced as quickly because of their technology).

Sooooo, you're a Reaper? Or a cylon, maybe. Either way, you must be disintegrated!

Not to start a discussion on physics and the reality of "time", but technically everything you see is already in the past. You'll never SEE the present due to the speed of light and the amount of time it takes for A) the light to reach your eyes and B) the amount of time it takes your brain to process that information.

Of course this is an extremely small window but let's expand that to a larger scale within our own solar system.

You know that Sun that rises and sets everyday? You're never really seeing it how it is. You're seeing how it looked 8 minutes ago. The light (what we see/process) from the Sun takes about 8 minutes to reach the earth.

So let's expand that to an intergalactic scale. The next closest star to us (the closest being our own Sun) is Alpha Centauri. That's 4.27 light years away. This means when you "observe" it you're actually seeing what is looked like over FOUR YEARS AGO, and that's the next closest to us.



Star Wars could have happened a "long, long time ago" and by the time we found out about it, or "observed" it, it could have been over for thousands if not hundreds of thousands of years ago.

Thank god I'm an Arsenal DPS and not a Bodyguard healer. Patch 1.2 is going to make them worthless.

I mean the movies just dont give me a really futuristic feel to it. I would really like to see these movies remade using modern technology and having a proper setting to it.

Anyone else would like to see a reboot?

Well, considering that Star Wars us in a different galaxy... it could easily be millions of years. Uh, yeah... um...

yeah it wasn't that bad.


I'd love for them to re-do Star Wars with a new director and a slightly new interpretation.

1977 is not the 80's

and no a reboot would be cinematic heresy in my opinion.
