As much as I’m excited for all the upcoming Disney + Star Wars, particularly, Obi-Wan, I’m very much hoping that they would do a series showing the Empires side of things, like the novel Star Wars : Lost Stars and the short fan films, Together, Jakku and Bucketheads which shows the human side of the men and women serving the Galactic Empire and why they chose to serve the Empire.
Not all of them join simply because they love killings or hate the Rebels with their guts. It’s a grey world where not everything is in black and white, and that everyone has a reason as to why they serve who they serve. Wedge Antilles, was once an Imperial Pilot too and Luke Skywalker almost became one. Including Han Solo and they all had different reasons.
In the novel, Lost Stars, everyone who served the Empire genuinely believed that the Rebels are terrorists who disrupts the stability and order of the galaxy, thanks to some radicals such as Saw Gerrera who was willing to cross the line to defeat the Empire at the cost of some innocent lives. It wasn’t until the Death Star attack on Alderaan that some began to wonder who the real villain is.
So it would be interesting if there are series exploring this dilemma and conflict faced by the soldiers, pilots and officers who served the Empire in order to preserve peace and stability in the galaxy, without knowing what really went on in some dark corners of the galaxy under Imperial rule. And how some began defecting to the Rebellion after the explosion of Alderaan.
And perhaps there are some assasination attempts to kill the key officers instrumental to the Empire such as Grand Moff Tarkin by some defectors who intend to turn the Empire from within, akin to that of Operation Valkyrie in World War II where a few good men led by Colonel Claus von Stauffenberg attempted to assasinate Hitler in order to end the war.
Even Thrawn admitted in Timothy Zahn’s Thrawn novel that he do not agree 100% with the way things are being run by the Empire and his adversary even admitted that Thrawn could step away from the Empire and fight for the good guys to which he replied, he would like to try to change it from within and taking into consideration of his own species to ensure it’s own survival.
So you see, there are plenty of rooms to explore this grey world in a vast galaxy, where not every Rebels are good and not every Imperials are bad. There’s a reason why the war dragged on for so long because not everything is as simple as it seems, from both sides of the war. So I hope they would one day make a story about stormtroopers, tie fighter pilots and imperial navy officers.

If I roleplayed either twin, absolutely!! HOWEVER,
In the actual roleplay verse ( modern ), also absolutely. I feel like while Claudia’s computer is hers, it’s pretty much taken over by the kids. Like 96% of the bookmarks and downloaded software is purely for them, and the things she sends them when they’re finally on their own computers or phone. Also, if she sees something she knows they’d like, she’d save it and show it to them later!
I think it’s to the point where she might actually have her own little laptop for her own purposes while her actual PC is for family ( which she’s fine with, her activity on it is sporadic ). Her property is their property, lbr. That’s how Parenting and Grandparenting Works(tm).
Tu saresti capace di piantare tutto e ricominciare la vita da capo? Di scegliere una cosa, una cosa sola e di essere fedele a quella, riuscire a farla diventare la ragione della tua vita, una cosa che raccolga tutto, che diventi tutto proprio perché è la tua fedeltà che la fa diventare infinita, saresti capace?
