There is... some good EU. At least there's EU I like. But the majority is headdesk-worthy at best.

Wasn't that the ship that had the :Q molecular armor and caused stars to go nova? Yeah, it was stupid. Almost fanwank stupid.

Yeah, the Sun Crusher was fifty-nine kinds of dumb. At least! Although almost sane compared to the Vong... :bangwall: :bangwall: :bangwall: :madashell: :madashell: !ouch)

I don't know, I could deal with the Vong... they were just given a win. Not very different then Battletech just throwing out the Clans. But the suncrusher just so much fanwank.

I actually stopped reading the Star Wars books because of the Vong. Never even finished the first book that they were in.

Most things by Zahn and Allston are pretty good, and some of the other have their good points. They're outnumbered, but there are some bits of the EU that are genuinely good by any standard.

For all the legit crap KJA takes, the comic book 'Redemption' is pretty damned great. And the YJK, I have always and will always find to be far better than it had to be and is pretty good.

KJA comes up with good ideas but he needs to then hand those ideas of to someone who can scale it back and make it usable.

Well, he did work with Rebecca Moesta on the YJK. That might explain it...

His work with the Dune relaunch series was much the same. I've heard from folks at the shop that B.Herbert had to hold his hand on things. While not really up to the scale of detail of the Original works by Frank, as a stand alone series the relaunch isn't bad by any means. Its a smooth read with pretty well detailed character growth. Its only when compared to the original works that you look at it and say "what the hell?"
