It's been 25 years since the EU got serious with the release of Timothy Zahn's Heir to the Empire. I got my issue by mail order, read it eagerly... then had to wait a full year before the 2nd volume in the saga. Who else read this when it first came out?

I remember that period of the Wars... some dark times.

While I never dug the EU (yeah, even the Thrawn stuff didn't do it for me), as it never felt like Star Wars, I am curious as to which character makes an appearance in Rebels.

yeah I remember coming across a copy in a book shop and being pleasantly surprised to see it. I enjoyed the series especially some of the ship battles. It did make me dig into the EU a bit more as other books came but there hasn't been many books that really got the star warsy feel in my version of Star Wars :)
