If you ever had a doubt that we’re all just playing in the Google Universe – doubt no more.

Google Earth has gone Universal. That is Google Earth which up until this week was limited only to our little blue planet now has a ‘sky’ portion that shows you the stars from your location.

This is perhaps the greatest thing to happen to astronomy thus far in the young history of the Internet.

How many times have I struggled – traveling as much as I do – trying to figure out the sky from wherever my travels take me? – Sure the charts help but Google Earth Sky mode is…

AWESOME.

It is the most fluid, dynamic and visually accurate astronomy program i have ever seen and i strongly encourage anyone with an interest in the skies to check it out.

Star Wars: Legacy #14–Claws of the Dragon pt. 1 is the first issue of a new story arc in which we will finally find out who Darth Krayt really is .

This is yet another awesome issue that is brilliant drawn and written. Cade Skywalker makes his way to Coruscant where he is ultimately captured by the Sith. It is also painfully obvious that Cade is more comfortable with a blaster than with using the force, something that isn’t a suprise I suppose since he did leave his Jedi roots behind for many years.

Though this issue is a stepping to stone to issue 15 – which is likely one of the most highly anticipated Star Wars comic book releases in a generation – it’s still worthy of much merit and praise.

We learn that Darth Krayt is dying and that Cade Skywalker may be his only chance for survival.
The Mynock (Cade’s ship) has got some info on it and thnx to a friendly Hutt, that info is going to fall into friendly hands.

Oh and the art…WOW…we see the first real shots of Coruscant in the Legacy era and of the Legacy era Tie Fighter (which are sort of like Tie Interceptors on steroids).

That said…i can hardly contain my enthusiasm for issue 15. FINALLLY we’ll find out who Darth Krayt is.

I wonder if anyone in the ShowMeSciFi discussion forum is actually right.

Thnx to jwash24 who posted as a comment. ShowMeSciFi has now been able to independently verify that indeed Darth Caedus is Jacen Solo’s Sith name.

Jacen’s Sith name was chosen by a contest and follows his long descent into the dark side in the Legacy of the Force series (which is the most awesome Star Wars series in years if not of ALL TIME).

He takes his Sith name in Sacrifice set to come out in just a few weeks, but early copies are all already being leaked by the publisher.

So who does Jacen have to Sacrifice to get his Sith name…i could hardly believe it myself (and if you really want to know just look at the cover of the book and it’s quite obvious)..and i’m actually going to suspend dis-belief if you don’t mind until i get my hands on a copy of Sacrifice on May 29th.

*UPDATE* Got a copy of this on May 28th

Here’s the line you have to wait 367 pages to get too..

“Now was the time for a man who’d once been Jacen Solo to shoulder that responsibility for the galaxy’s sake.

Jacen took off the helmet, looked into his own eyes and didn’t flinch.

“Caedus,” he said. “My name is Darth Caedus.”

FINALLY.

Cade Skywalker returns and with him one of the best Legacy stories in a while (not that the issue 10 wasn’t great..but this one was over the top). Oh and the incomparable art of Jan Duursema returns too…

VADER.

Mara Jade.

THE FREAKIN VONG!!!

They all make an appearance in this issue that finally sees Cade return to the Jedi, to Ossus and to his destiny. His former bounty hunter pals get captured by Krayt’s empire too so the threads of this story are rapidly converging..as Cade seeks his Jedi heritage and the rest of universe is out looking for Cade.

What’s the deal with the Vong?

Will they side with the Jedi and/or Emperor Fel to overturn the Sith? Are they out to destroy the Jedi? the Imperial Remnant on Bastion?? Who knows?!? All I know is that it adds another dimension to an already wickedly cool comic book storyline.

Awesome story..AWESOME ART that is beyond compare. Legacy continues to impress and exceed all expectations.

AND only 4 more issues until the truth is revealed about who Darth Krayt really is.
