Yes, but that material is all on the table to reincorporated as the new EU gets rebuilt. So there's no reason Thrawn can't show up again - and frankly I think it'd be silly not to hang on to the favorites in some form. » 3/17/15 4:36pm 3/17/15 4:36pm

I don't know, this is kind of Vader's job. I doubt he'll be a constant presence, but it shows that the Empire has been forced to take this cell seriously. » 3/03/15 11:21pm 3/03/15 11:21pm
