During one of the previous posts featuring Mandalorian pieces by filmresearch, I mentioned that the Republic Commando series of novels by Karen Traviss might be my favorite story in the Expanded Universe. With the “General Krell” arc coming to an end tonight on the Clone Wars series and knowing that there is no “Dishonorable Discharge for clones bred for war, I thought this is a perfect time to show off my piece commemorating Order 66:
In the fourth Republic Commando novel, appropriately titled “Order 66”, Karen Traviss creates official wording for a number of contingency orders. The official order reads:
In the event of Jedi officers acting against the Republic, and after receiving specific orders verified as coming directly from the Supreme Commander (Chancellor), GAR commanders will remove those officers by lethal force, and command of the GAR will revert to the Supreme Commander (Chancellor) until a new command structure is established
I can’t wait to see how General Krell does!
