Je n'aime pas dans les vieux films américains quand les conducteurs ne regardent pas la route. Et de ratage en ratage, on s'habitue à ne jamais dépasser le stade du brouillon. La vie n'est que l'interminable répétition d'une représentation qui n'aura jamais lieu.

Star Wars Expanded Universe Chronology: Chronicles of the Old Republic: The Naddist Revolt!

Get Chronicles of the Old Republic: The Naddist Uprising

3,998 BBY

*So, anyway, it’s another one of the Chronicles.  Remember, these were intended to be free when they were composed, so nothing illegal or unethical about going to the above link and checking them out. 

*Anyway, this is the helicopter version of The Freedon Nadd Uprising, of course. 

*This says that it was King Ommin’s ‘tribulations’ that called up the spirit of Freedon Nadd to join with him.  I’m trying to figure out what that means.  At first I thought it meant his disease, but then I remember that the Tales of the Jedi Companion says in Sith Reborn, the chapter we actually talked about way back in 4,000 BBY, has a scene of Ommin and Nadd talking before Ommin actually had his disease.  So, not that.  Hmm, well, no matter.  Clearly Ommin has some bad stuff in his back story. 

*So, this is Freedon Nadd Uprising in three paragraphs, which isn’t that much longer than the actual graphic novel. 

*But guess who doesn’t even get a mention: Warb Null.  Remember in that Sith Reborn chapter, there was this whole thing about how his Sith master told him he was going to be one of the most important Siths in history or something.  So much for entering the historical canon. 

*CANONICAL STATUS: This attempt to give a backstory to some of the significant participants in the Sith War is a complete misfire; it is considered by most scholars to be completely fabricated.  This work is NOT RECOMMENDED as a historical resource.

*Strongly warned against.  ½ star. 

*Wow, you know what, we’ve put another ten reviews away.  That means that next time, we’ll be hopping back to our special countdown of the 111 Star Wars stories you can’t live without.  We’ve already done the big bullet point review of this one, so next time it’ll be the short paragraph take on Tales of the Jedi: Knights of the Old Republic.
