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: Attack of the Krath!

Read Chronicles of the Old Republic: Attack of the Krath

3,997 BBY

*Once again, the Chronicles are free and were always intended to be free, so no crime if you want to go read them right now at the link above. 

*We have reached Part IV: Attack of the Krath. 

*I seriously, when I first saw this on the timeline, was like, “Who the heck are the Krath?” 

*Frankly, that’s kind of still my reaction to Satal and Aleema.  Lamest villains since Ludo Kressh?  Yeah.

*It says here about the bit where Exar Kun goes to Onderon, “His arrogance wins him no favors with Master Arca, who refuses to help.”  Well, he also refused to hinder.  I think that’s called ‘not getting involved.’  Also, ‘being a moral coward.’  Also ‘being a twit.’  Some Arca partisan must have written this thing.

*“Shouting for help, Nadd’s specter appears again.”

*Nothing is as scary as a specter with a dangling modifier.

*Wow, before these were just kind of dull.  But as the story gets stupider, so too do these little summaries.  Here’s a great nominee for bad line of the month:

*“Letting out a tremendous psychic shriek, Kun startles Master Vodo.”

*Oh, yeah, I think I saw that on America’s Funniest Home Videos.  God, I love those tremendous psychic shrieks as prank fodder. 

*Well, anyway, at this point, the story just goes totally off the rails.  It had been pretty lame and dull to this point, but at this point, it just starts getting actively annoying and morally dunderheaded. 

*CANONICAL STATUS: This work is NOT RECOMMENDED as a historical resource.

*Strongly warned against.  ½ star. 

*Well, 3,998 BBY was a long year, but this one is a really short one.  We’re already done with 3,997 BBY.  Next time, we’ll move on to 3,996 BBY with Tales of the Jedi: The Sith War.
