#1: Han Solo? Chief of State of the Corellian Sector? (possible spolier for Legacy)

Posted on 2006-06-29 22:50:33 by Ears

I have been wondering about this ever since I have read Betrayal.
Han Solo has never sought a public office, in fact the one time Luke
suggested it (somewhere) Han said that he'd probably be elected and
then impeached for accepting bribes. Let's be honest though, the man
is already really rich, and right now Corellia is getting ready to
have a new election.

What I envision is an argument between him and probably Sal-Solo, and
the arguement is probably recorded on some security system. Han
would probably bring up several valuable points about who's doing what
and for whom. And probably say something like (I could do a better
job.)

Somebody in security realizing that he's probably right releases the
recording to the media. The masses take the recording as his bid for
the top job. They could start voting for him as a kind of write-in
choice.

After all he's got several things in his favor, he's Corellian through
and through with strong family ties to both the GA and the Jedi which
would help easing the current conflict. He'd been a General in the
Rebel Alliance so he does have military experience as well as a
reputation for getting things done.

He'd been a smuggler so they know he's not completely honest, but
since his entire past is a matter of public record he's got nothing to
hide, after all, they don't want someone too honest in the top job.

He's got valuable contacts on both side enabling him to appoint
someone like Wedge to head the Navy and/or Corran Horn to head CorSec,
both of whom are also Corellian, qualified for the jiob as well as
loyal.

Not to mention the good fortune to be married to a Jedi who is also a
former Chief of State of the New Republic , who is also a former
leader in the old Rebel Alliance, who is also a former member of the
Imperial Senate, who is also a former Alderaanian princess, who is
also the brother of the Grand Master of the Jedi Order who is also the
daughter of Darth Vader himself. I mention all of that because
different titles mean different things to different people..


I can see something like this taking on a life of its own, and as soon
as someone tells him that he's in the running he'd say something like
"I don't want the job." and Leia saying something to the effect of,
"Ah ha, your turn to be Chief of State".


I think personally he would take the job and try to do the best he
could.

What do you think?

He'd never do it. He hates politics and it would render his character
boring. A chief of state can't go running all over the galaxy
fighting evil.

I agree that it is out of charactor for him to do such a thing, but
you have to remember something else.

Han is getting old, pretty soon he's not going to be able to get out
of bed and run all over the galaxy. I think it could be a unique
opportunity to expand his character, after all, reading the Han Solo
trilogy I'm surprised he could have given up being a smuggler at all.

As for the character becoming boring I suppose that that is possible,
but there are a lot of characters that find whole new sides of
themselves when this sort of thing happens. As for him hating
politics you are correct, I think it would make him all the more
determined to set things right then get out.

After all, he is also accustomed to doing the right thing even when he
hates it.

I agree, it's a good way to keep him a viable character in a realistic
sense, without having to have him embroiled in galaxy saving
situations.

Which is a problem that I'm guessing the EU is going to be addressing
with Legacy - what to do with all the aged canon characters? Are they
going to kill them off much like Vector Prime did? Just kinda let them
dissapate into the background while the EU characters carry on? I have
a feeling we're going to be seeing another death in this series.

I'd like to see Han be the last one to go, though, so I'm voting for
the political plot if it ever becomes true.

I simply don't see this happening. Han is a shoot first, ask
questions later kind of guy. He's not suddenly going to develop
diplomatic and political skills out of the blue. He is what he is and
I like it that way.

GL has said the original trio of Luke, Han, and Leia are untouchable
in the EU series. They could go on forever if the stories continue to
be set in their lifetime. I'm not sure how far into the future I'd
like to see the EU go myself. I'm more interested in the past,
Palpatine's early days, etc. I'm really looking forward to the Darth
Plageuis book.

I'm a sucker for backstory myself. Can't wait to see RotS --&gt; ANH
history filled out more. Gotta admit I'm looking for more KOTOR era
stories, Sith War and beyond. God bless Dark Horse!
