"A Metaphor"
 
   *walks away from giant fancy water-park labelled "Official Star Wars Content", parts of which are on fire*

*arrives at Gryph's house wearing swimsuit, floaty tube and snorkeling mask, holding plastic drinks container with a straw*

Hey, I'm back. I think I'll have more fun here.

*goes over to large backyard pool labelled "Warriors of the Outer Rim", gets up on small and old but very well-refurbished slide labelled "Bits From The Old EU" *

Wheee! *splash!*

   I just assume the No-Kill Shelter approach means that Rey, Finn, Poe and Rose are all around here somewhere, doing just fine.

Kylo Ren, meanwhile, simply doesn't exist in this universe.

It could well be. I mean, you're not likely to see them, because I haven't seen any of the movies they're in, but they could be out there someplace, doing stuff and things. :)

This is some of the best news I've heard in several years.

In fact, I am STILL trying to reconcile UF's Darth Vader with the "Our" Darth Vader. UF's version is superior to the original in many ways. Though, I admit, with out the original trilogy, we wouldn't have any of that branch of UF. But that doesn't mean, it couldn't be improved.

So thank you for the improvements!

Wasn't Anakin seen as a cab driver in Oriphos or something?

I believe it is Nal Hutta (or some other Hutt Dominated world) that one Jedi or another was sent to looking for a lost jedi. Culiminates in a speeder chase vaugely reminicent of the assasin chase in ep 2(?) and with Anakin getting freed and studying under...

G? Was it the uf-present Obi Wan? Why do I think it was if it was not?

- Nar Shaddaa;
- I was more thinking of Crazy Taxi, although that chase scene totally has Crazy Taxi vibes anyway;
- Saionji.

Darth Vader and Anakin Skywalker not being the same guy is, I concede, one of the odder design developments that have happened over the years I've been doing this.

   I seem to recall Anakin having been trained by some itinerant Jedi (who was not Obi Wan) before winding up a taxi-driving slave on Nar Shaddaa, which is what I think Star Ranger was asking about. Saionji utters the line, "I'm sure Master $NAME was very wise, but he was wrong about this", but I can't recall what that variable's value was.

Sifu-Dyas (who must have been SifO-Dyas' cousin or summit.):

"Anakin... would you like to learn how to harness the beast
that lives inside you?"
The young man looked startled. "Master... Master Sifu-Dyas
said - "
"I'm sure he was a very wise man, but he was wrong about
this," Saionji replied with glacial certainty.

You know how in UF, the title of 'Darth' is mostly a bunch of posers using his fake name to look tough?

Yeah, I don't give Kylo that much credit.

If Ren's in here, I expect it'll probably be due to me, and there will be a GREAT DEAL OF EDITING.

   I'm not pleased with the results myself, if only because I wanted a Disney+ series: Finn/Solo.

I think they would have played buddy-cop Force sensitives quite well.

   I have no doubt that the people here on this forum could come up with a better story-line for a sequel Star Wars trilogy. Between Darth Emo, the Empire Lite ("Half the IQ, twice the stupidity!"), the "New Republic" (The most useless government ever conceived, bar none), and a plot more lost than Royga Hibiki, I have no doubt we could do better.....
