And the Force trick for extra energy plus beer equals Nyeomi finally drifting off to sleep. I hope things keep getting better for them, especially after Nyeomi lost 10 years with her husband and children.


I can picture Part 3 opening with "Da-ad! Mom's passed out again!"

SWTOR may not be available on Mac, but it should run on a fairly outdated PC or even PC laptop... its not hugely intensive on system requirements... especially if you don't get involved in any large scale battles. The standalone KOTOR and KOTOR2 are old enough that you can probably find an emulator that lets you run PC software on your Mac that can handle them.

If you happen to use Steam, KOTOR is available for both Mac and Windows, and KOTOR2 is also available on Linux. (Sadly, GoG only supports both games on Windows).

Back on the topic of the story itself, I theorize that the entity behind the Eternal Empire's space fleet is none other than the Void. By definition, the Void is an eternal entity. What if Nyeomi delivered Vitiate such a setback in 'The Good Sith Triumphant' that he felt his only option was to go to the Void for support and made a deal with the proverbial devil? While he provided a biological front to the Eternal Empire, the Void would provide the muscle to back it up. For a price.

The Void has demonstrated a distributed cognitive function that is immune to normal intercepts, similar to the Eternal Empire's space fleet. In addition, it has a significant manufacturing base that it could use to build a flotilla of the size demonstrated in part 2. This could also explain the odd decision for the Skytroopers to be brains in a jar that carry weapons. Suppose that the core of the Void was programmed with what we know as the 3 laws of robotics. As such, it wouldn't be able to directly target a sentient life form directly. However, it could sidestep this limitation by using conventional weapon systems to target anything from a motorized vehicle to a metropolis. It could also utilize a creative interpretation of the laws of robotics to justify the construction of the Skytroopers, and then direct the brains to carry out their bidding in ground combat situations.

One other interesting observation I have is that the crime on Nyeomi's carbonite slab was 'Murderer' rather than 'Traitor'. Normally, murder is considered to be a lesser crime than treason. The fact that a lesser crime was the marker on her slab suggests that Arcann may not have considered her actions to be opposed to his goals for the eternal empire.

If Arcann had survived, Nyeomi might have been a hero.

Part Three is now up for your reading enjoyment!

OK where and when can I see this story in animation or live action. It's just too good not to be brought to life. Maybe a graphic novel?

EE, you have brought me fully into the worry of a mother and the anger of a sith. So good and I can imagine it so vividly.

Thank you again. I cannot wait for the next story!

Well, I don't want to put the Bantha ahead of the repulsor cart, but, here is my brother Steve's work in progress take on the Aces and Eights. Why do I need a Maya model of the Aces and Eights? Well, I hope you'll see...
