Episodes[]

Season I[]

The Standalone pilot for the Memoirs series debuted across the usual Forums on October 4th 2008, the initial response was good. the first episode went into production shortly after the completion of the pilot as the story told therein was brief and pointed itself towards a direct continuation. the hiatus between episodes 1 and 2 where due to many issues both personal and creative to the author. as of March 29th 2009, a full draft of the script for the Second episode was complete and a full draft of the script for the Third episode was completed on April 9th 2009. Much like its predecessor story arc oriented episodes, both "The Lekku Loper" and the "Prize Captive of Operation Knightfall" where conceived as a single story. The story-line of the fifth episode was originally intended to take place during the clone wars and actually be the follow up to the second episode, instead it became the episode that led the series out of the Prequel era. After the release of the fourth episode, the author decided to not commit a single frame to production until the writing work was completed for the remaining Eight episodes in the series. Therefore Episodes Five through Seven where outlined between April and September of 2009; the intial writing work was however mostly completed between October and December. The eighth episode entered into the extensive oultlining phase in December of 2009 and continued into the new year; the final two story arcs of the series where handled as two regular sized episodes both containing natural cliffhangers in lieu of actually writing two seperate stories as was done with Episodes three and four. Production of The Fantastic Fall of the Galactic Empire photonovel lasted from April through August 2010, the writing of the Eighth Episode resulted in it being converted into a mini-Trilogy arc thus reorganizing the planned Two-Parters into Sole episodes. Writing work on the Nineth episode Orchestra of Pain was commenced on September 6th 2010.

Trivia[]

  • Dilbun Vont is the father of Cas-Lo Vont; a Jedi Master in the Sequel Trilogy Photo-Novel series.
  • The concept behind the creation of a female clone of Jango Fett was half inspired by Marvel Comics X-23 (Laura Kinney); a female clone of Wolverine. However her initial creation was intended to add a layer of previously unexplored background detail to the story of the Memoirs series. At some point in the series it will be revealed that the only clone born from J'mee will turn out to be Boba Fett. Thus explaining why Jango allowed the clone to be kept alive.
  • The inclusion of Kligson was primarily due to the authors use of the character as a child while playing with the retro Star Wars action Figures. The heroes of the original trilogy were faced with the challenge of Kligson in the form of a Robocop action figure time and time again. In light of the fact that the Expanded Universe has yet to fill in the details of Kligson's pre-cyborg life, the author has included large portions of his Pre-Prequel trilogy concepts into the story.
  • The name Augie is from the track title "Augie's Great Municipal Band"—the penultimate track on the original soundtrack of The Phantom Menace. the name has been attached to Palpatine within this series due to the presumption that the "Augie" in Augie's Great Municipal Band from the Episode I soundtrack refers to Palpatine—though it was established in 2007 that it referred to a Gungan named Augara Jowil.
  • Much of the philosophical musings upon the Force are the actual beliefs of the author. although they may disagree with established canon at times, the presented theory about the Jedi Orders fear of the Dark Side prohibiting their ability to view the Fate of the Force was born out of a protracted line of discussion about the degree of Palpatine's influence over the Jedi. Ultimately the author came to the conclusion that even with the full power of the dark side at his disposal Palpatine would be under a great strain concealing himself from the entire Jedi Order, thus it must assumed that a greater Jedi dogma kept the Sith agenda concealed. But it must also be assumed that this would leave the Sith at a disadvantage where Dark Jedi and other Force Sensitives where concerned.
  • The Idea to actually have both Darth Sidious and Darth Tyranus at odds with one another, was born out of misinterpreted spoilers for Attack of the Clones by the author.
  • Dilbun Vont's role in the events of Order 66 include the introduction of Cittro; the mother of Cas-Lo.
  • The outfit Dilbun wears as a full commander of the Black Ops was inspired by Terrinald Screed's appearance on the Star Wars: Droids cartoon.
  • The story behind the disfigurement of Jedi Knight Empatajayos Brand was explored during the events of Order 66.
  • The junk barge used to ferry the Lekku parade down Vos Gesal street was in fact a retextured digital model of the moon bus from 2001: A Space Odyssey. it was given a edited version of a Boba Fett helmet. in aurabesh text it reads: Republic Waste Services.
  • Rykrof Enloe is mentioned in the news ticker portion of Sloan Snickers Holo-Feed.
  • The Holo-Razzi droid was a kitbashed digital model of the Probe droid from The Empire Strikes Back.
  • The Green Twi'leks in the Vos Gesal hotel pleasure den are intended to be members of Connus Trell's displaced family. Trell was the senator Jango Fett dropped off of a balcony in the Video Game Star Wars: Bounty Hunter.
  • The lone surviving and later misplaced witness to The Lekku Loper's murder spree was intended to be the youngest son of Senater Trell, although suspected dead within the episode Zora Trell appeared in the climax of the Memoirs series.
  • A Full one shot Photo-Novel Star Wars: Justice Avengers Intergalactica was created to introduce major portions of the backstory to the climatic two part Episode "Dilbun Vont and The Galactic Guillotine".
