[COLOR=black]I say this because they obviously don't even pay attention to the HoloNet. The Jedi Council ordered me to be subtle in my attempts to locate the Star Forge. So what do I do? I become the Galactic Champion of the swoop racing circuit (with a little help from a couple of mods), I boot Czerka Corperation from Kashyyyk and I annihilate the Sith Academy on Korriban. And no-one notices?[/COLOR] [COLOR=black]Man, those guys are dumb. I know military intelligence is an oxymoron, but this is ridiculous... :lol:[/COLOR]

Maybe they are busy with other things...

Hm, would you like to be the one who says to the Dark Lord:

" Lord Malak we have found them on Kashyyyk/ Manaan/ Tatoine/ Korriban. they succed to escape after they destroyed..."

it wouldn't be healthy to say things like that.

Unsurprising that Malak's Intelligence Corps would be poor (or at least very reluctant to give him bad news.

Malak was only interested in inspiring fear in his underlings, not loyalty. While such an approach works well with grunts (troopers) it doesn't work so well with officers and intelligence agents, because they will only play the CYA (cover your ass) game rather than doing their job properly.

For those interested in real history, the intelligence services of the Nazi Third Reich were very poor (except those focused on internal security rather than foreign countries), while those of the British were excellent.

thejadefalcon;4098518Oh, another thing. Why is it that, on this supposedly secret mission, half of the galaxy knows exactly where I'm going and when I'm getting there?

Atris told everyone. :p

Oh, and yes, they should be shot. The Sith had a base on Manaan, and Korriban...well, is Korriban. And Kashyyyk and Tatooine were Czerka worlds, and thus under control of the Sith. Come on. :rolleyes:

Oh, and come to think of it, isn't it a rather big coincidence that the Sith had a strong presence on all four worlds? ;)

Jedijax;4101371Well, there's secret and then there's SECRET, you know?? Would you rather have a mission similar to the whole "True-Sith-hiding-somewhere-in-deep-space" stuff?? I mean, the damn elusive guys seem to be so SECRET that even creators at Obsidian, Bioware and Lucasarts don't have the slightest clue of who they are, where they are, and even if they really exist!! Now, that's SECRET!! =p[/quote] :lol:

Off topic-We are very fortunate that the Allies won the war. With as much disinformation that was spread by all sides, you'd think that someone in the field would have a hell of a time knowing his left foot from the right. But let's be gratefull that the Allied powers had such good intelligence and the majority of our operatives were amserter than the average Goose-Stepper.- Ahem, Bac to topic- You're right. Malak was only interested in loyalty through fear and intimidation. Very un-Revan like. [quote=JCarter426;4368101]Atris told everyone. :p Oh, and yes, they should be shot.

:mad: Artis...that bitch! :lol: Well, to quote a Jedi, 'There are no coinciences, there is only the Force.' But yeah, JCarter, that is a bit of a co-inky dink. But aren't those 'Sith bases' left over from Revan's tear-ass through the Republic before he gots his brains scrambled then washed? Hmmmm. I wonder....

Yes, they were. But what else was there beside the Sith bases? *cough*Star Maps*cough* ;)

Clever Revan...he kept an eye out on each planet knowing the Jedi would one day come looking for the maps. Malak probably didn't think of it, and so he stopped keeping tabs on Kashyyyk and Tatooine. As for Manaan, I can understand him not storming in, because they can't risk the kolto, and on Korriban you pretty much kill all the Sith there before anyone can call you in. So it's not Malak's intelligence division who should be shot...but rather Malak himself, for not keeping an eye out on Tatooine and Kashyyyk like Revan did.

I agree. And that brings me to the thought that HK-47 was ready to shoot Malak just for sneezing in his direction.... Malak....Another thing that Revan did not or could not foresee...but perhaps Revan didn't think that his apprentice would turn on him so early on? Should have let HK-47 have a field day...

Yeah, that's what I think. I'm working on a fanfic about it, actually.

I would be interested in reading it myself. I have a fan fic based on a character I created that spanes nearly 300 years as he has an incredibly long lifespan. And why not? Hutts live what? 500-600 years? Yoda was 900 when he became one with the Force? He starts as a Republic Soldier in the Great Sith War, Becomes a Jedi during the first years of the Mandalorian Wars, is a Knight by the time Revan is rallying his troops and he goes off to join Revan only to see that Revan becomes what the Jedi are against. He leaves and disappears for years then resurfaces with a Darth Title, but isn't necessarily a Sith. It's not complete, but I'll trade ya notes if you're interested.

No! Don't do it! You can't! It's just WRONG, I tell you! It'll screw up the entire Star Wars universe!

You CANNOT have a Jedi Hutt!!! NO!
