STAR WARS LITERATURE TIMELINE by MIKE BEIDLER with updates by George 'Jake' Tringali INTRODUCTION "What is 'canon' in the Star Wars universe?" "Is this novel 'official?'" "Did the events in this comic series actually take place?" These are tough questions. Although the canonicity question has been debated ever since Marvel began to create Star Wars comics beyond the scope of the first movie, and Alan Dean Foster's Splinter of the Mind's Eye was first published, it was Timothy Zahn's Heir to the Empire that made fans ask the question more frequently and earnestly than ever before. In 1991, Lucasfilm, Ltd. commissioned Dark Horse Comics and about a dozen popular science fiction novelists to continue the Star Wars saga beyond the events told in the third motion picture Star Wars: Episode VI: Return of the Jedi. And in a minor coup d'etat, Lucasfilm allowed Dark Horse Comics to add to the Star Wars mythos with adventures taking place four thousand years before the first movie Star Wars: Episode IV: A New Hope. With this proliferation of Star Wars literature and the increasingly watchful eye of thousands of true and loyal fans the canon question has become foremost in many of our minds. Of course, some of you are wondering, "What the heck is canon?" Referencing The American Heritage Dictionary, Second College Edition, and eliminating any definitions that have religious connotations, canon means: "3. A basis for judgment; standard; criterion." "7. An authoritative list, as of the works of an author." Therefore, in our particular case, George Lucas, the author and creator of the Star Wars saga, is the only individual who can define what books, comics, or video games are authoritative when discussing the Star Wars universe and its characters, places, and events. According to the premiere issue of the Star Wars Insider, the only works "canonized" have been the movies, their novelizations, and their radio drama adaptations. So what about novels like Heir to the Empire and the Jedi Academy trilogy, and comic series such as Dark Empire? West End Games, which produces exhaustive source material based on the movies and various novels, states in the Heir to the Empire Source book that "this and all other products that take place after the events depicted in Return of the Jedi are the author's vision of what may have happened. The true fate of the heroes and villains of the Star Wars universe remains the exclusive province of George Lucas and Lucasfilm, Ltd." Kevin J. Anderson, author of the Jedi Academy trilogy, states in the introduction to the Dark Empire trade paperback that "when you read Dark Empire, or any of the other novels, remember that although Lucasfilm has approved them, they are our sequels, not George Lucas's. If Lucasfilm ever makes films that take place after Return of the Jedi, they will be George Lucas's own creations, probably with no connection to anything we have written." So what does this mean? Will George Lucas ignore all the events, characters, and premises that Timothy Zahn, Kevin J. Anderson, and Tom Veitch wrote about? Will all the books and comics have been bought in vain? Will a Star Wars "otherworld" suddenly exist when and if George Lucas makes episodes VII-IX? Only time will tell. In a related subject, many fans love to point out inconsistencies and changed premises that are (supposedly) inevitable when so many books and comics are being written in a relatively short period of time. So do these inconsistencies, some major, some minor, affect the canonicity of a book or comic? That's another question in itself . . . . Regardless, this is my attempt at putting all the Star Wars literature I could find into a (hopefully) clear timeline. And note that I have stated which literature is not considered Star Wars canon by the majority of fans. Although most fans would probably agree with my assessment of a particular work's non-canonicity, this determination, of course, is purely my own opinion. If you tend to disagree with me on a certain canonicity matter, have literature to add to the list, or have any corrections/modifications for a future version, e-mail me at < LkSkywlkr@aol.com > ( NOTE: I'd appreciate it if you sent any corrections/updates to me too at < tringg@rpi.edu >. ) Thanks and May The Force Be With You. --------------------------------------------------------------------------- The following is Version 2.5 of the Timeline, with additions by George 'Jake' Tringali TITLE: Star Wars: The Golden Age of the Sith ORIGINAL MEDIA AND AUTHORS: Six-issue comic series from Dark Horse Comics, written by Kevin Anderson, pencilled by Chris Gossett, and inked by Stan Woch RELEASED: July 1996 OTHER MEDIA AND AUTHORS: SEQUEL TO: SYNOPSIS: Young Jedi Odan-Urr's destiny crosses path with Empress Teta and Gav and Jori Daragon TIME: Takes place 5,000 years BSW4 TITLE: Star Wars: The Fall of the Sith Empire ORIGINAL MEDIA AND AUTHORS: Five-issue comic series from Dark Horse Comics, written by Kevin J.
