Apocalypse 2012…. – SWBTF #20

Play

Welcome back to Star Wars Beyond the Films!

This week the guys explore the final chapter of the Fate of the Jedi series.
Was adding Mortis into the plot a good or bad thing?
How does one stop the multiple man?  (Abeloth)
Did the series get the closure it needed with Apocalypse?
Quick show of hands: who freaked out when Mortis was mentioned?

And to commemorate Nathan’s 10th anniversary in Star Wars podcasting, a contest is running on the Facebook page and Twitter feed for the show to win a signed copy of Nathan’s novel Greater Good! See nathanpbutler.com for details.

Nathan finally likes Killiks? Uh oh, it IS a sign of the Apocalypse! The Killiks were used in a great way. Not only did it work for the story, and series, it also makes Dark Nest more vital to the over all plot.
Some plots were purposly left open, and this can be both a good and bad thing.
Was Denning messing with Traviss with the direction he took Fett in the series?

The Barabels…. are they the Trojan Horse of the Jedi temple?

Was the length and pacing the cause of most readers negative perceptions of the plot? Did some elements take too long while others were too fast? Should the series have been longer or shorter?
Will Mortis turn into another Even Piel? Was the addition of Mortis George Lucas approved?
Should the author line up been shifted?
Did Denning know if Krayt was the Dark Man? Or is he just messing with the fans by saying they didn’t know?
Does the Imperial plot pay off? Or is it left too wide open for future stories?
Han dies!?!!! Let Mark explain….
Wynn Drovan is he like the Riddler of the Star Wars universe? Nathan talks about that. And, in the end was it really the “Apocalypse”?

The Ten Knights: Mark’s really looking forward to their story!
Was the end of the book talking about Jaina? Or Abeloth?
Will we ever get stories that take place in the gaps created in the last few series? After all, there are enough gaps to fit a few mini series into the holes.
Be sure to continue discussing the book Apocalypse on our facebook page!
