Hallo! Auf der Webseite von Kotor (Knights of the Old Republic) gibt es bereits eine Reihe an Hintergrundinfos. Soweit nichts besonderes für das EU, aber: Was mich besonders interessiert hat, ist, dass über etwas berichtet, das LANGE vor der Zeit der Alten Republik spielt! Es wird von einer Spezies namens "Rakata" berichtet, deren Höhepunkt 10.000 Jahre vor Beginn der Alten Republik war. Die Spezies starb kurze Zeit später aus, also ist diese Rasse seit rund 30.000 Jahren (vor Yavin) ausgestorben. Hier mal der Text auf der Seite (für all diejenigen, die des englischen möchtig sind): In the field of galactic archeology, the Rakata species presents researchers with an anomaly. The Republic has been in existence since the arrival of hyperspace travel 20,000 years ago. Before that time, all known races could barely escape their own solar systems, and little information was shared between worlds. The Rakatas, however, appear to have been exempt from that rule. Hints of their one-time presence seem to be buried on myriad worlds, though this evidence is often contested due to the difficulty in recognizing such remnants. This is an understandable impediment given the length of time that has elapsed since their passing. It is estimated that the Rakata civilization ceased to exist nearly 30,000 years ago, the height of its power predating the Republic by ten millennia. The scarcity of remains suggests that they were either very careful with access to their resources, or that attempts were made to intentionally remove any trace of their passing once they had gone. Both hypotheses tend to suggest that the Rakatas did not arrive on these worlds as ambassadors or merchants. No other species appears to have been so widespread, and yet so thoroughly purged from the galactic record. While defining the Rakata culture is confined to guesswork, researchers have had better luck reconstructing the anatomy of the species. This has involved studying many ancient records, including the scrawled drawings of various peoples just developing sentience at the time. Artifacts, when they could be found, have also been analyzed to determine the shape of hand they were designed for, and the musculature that would have found them comfortable to use. This has resulted in a fairly clear physical portrait of these early galactic pioneers, though what became of their empire remains unknown. ich finde das seeehr interessant - generell reizt mich die Zeit vor der AR extrem: Wen gab es davor, wie mächtig und fortgeschritten waren sie? Bis jetzt ging das EU nur wenig darauf ein (z.B. die Sache mit den Planeten-Repulsoren im Corellia-System)... Was meint Ihre, klingt das nicht irre spannend, was die "Rakatas" angeht?
