Not since I first read “Shadows of the Empire”:http://starwars.wikia.com/wiki/Shadows_of_the_Empire have I been this excited. Like most Star Wars nerds who discover the “expanded universe”:http://starwars.wikia.com/wiki/Expanded_Universe, I jumped at all the extra plot anywhere I could find it. Whether it was the “many novels”:http://starwars.wikia.com/wiki/Category:Books, the “video games”:http://starwars.wikia.com/wiki/Category:Computer_and_video_games, or the “Essential Guide to Vehicles and Vessels”:http://starwars.wikia.com/wiki/The_New_Essential_Guide_to_Vehicles_and_Vessels, I had everything.
In fact, I was looking for a specific piece of information today (the planetary location of Incom Corporation, makers of the X-Wing, if you must know) and stumbled upon “Wookiepedia”:http://starwars.wikia.com/wiki/Main_Page. This Star Wars wiki has absolutely everything. I’m not exaggerating, it really has everything, from “The First Battle of Kashyk”:http://starwars.wikia.com/wiki/First_Battle_of_Kashyyyk_%28Galactic_Civil_War%29 to all the fighters in the “TIE series”:http://starwars.wikia.com/wiki/TIE_series, Wookieepedia is your go-to guide to everything touched by the Force.
Looking for a place to get started? Read about the founding of the “Alliance to Restore the Republic”:http://starwars.wikia.com/wiki/Alliance_to_Restore_the_Republic (aka the Rebel Alliance). It’ll drop you right into the original trilogy and carry you through to all of the greatest parts of the expanded universe of Star Wars.
