One of the reasons I love ST lcg is the entire "Hoth" cycle. Don't care as much about the current cycle, as it has a lot of content I don't feel familiar with. Hopefully, a "New Hope" or "Return of the Jedi" type cycle will come out in the future. Would love to see anything from "Endor". Also, wouldn't mind "Attack of the Clones" stuff.

You're going to want to get comfortable with the EU. It looks like it isn't going anywhere as far as the game is concerned. We'll see how things pan out when Disney renegotiates the licensing.

The current cycle is much better than the Hoth cycle in my opinion. Also either the next pack or the pack after we get another Yoda and the last pack I believe we get a Jedi leaia.

If we're following the movie trend, then a Bespin themed cycle would be cool...

Yeah Bespin or Endor for me. The extended fan fiction malarkey doesn't interest me much, I'm afraid.

I'm wondering what we are going to see from a mechanics point of view. so far we've seen familiar mechanics like use of keywords, number of cards in hand, and more emphasis on the force struggle. I'm wondering if we will see 'mill' or discard mechanics in the future since that is one of the lose conditions.

And we get a bit of EU in the normal cycles anyways, no real need at this point to have a cycle that's just EU. I'd like to see a Bespin cycle, then a Tatooine cycle, then an Endor cycle before any generic themed cycle...

I know I'm in the minority here, but I'd freakin' love to see a dedicated Thrawn Trilogy Cycle.

I want the Endor cycle, but I'll take Bespin, certainly. I'm not sure there's enough Bespin stuff to support a full cycle. Maybe as a deluxe expansion?

Hasn't there already been a lot of Bespin and Tatooine? Edge of Darkness had a lot of both of those.

EoD only had Bespin stuff for Smugglers and Scum. So, some Bespin and Tatooine stuff for the other factions wouldn't be completely out of line. I mean, Decipher had desert based Speeders and AT-ATs...

There's a huge difference between fan fiction and extended universe. Hint: they aren't incorporating fan fiction into this game.

Does that include Kevin J Anderson?

Thrawn was excellent! And I'd love to see a version of Luke from that trilogy as well - i remember him kicking some serious ass, unlike his whiny self from New Hope.

I haven't seen anything we can trace back to him, so... looks like.

I guess we still have a bunch of Force Packs to go, but it makes me nervous that FFG hasn't announced another Cycle or deluxe expansion. I hope they make some kind of announcement by GenCon, if not sooner.

Looking through the FFG news archives, the smallest gap between the announcement of a new deluxe expansion or force pack cycle and its eventual release date has been 4 months:

Announced Released
Hoth 11/12 03/13 4 months
EoD 02/13 07/13 5 months
BotF 07/13 12/13 5 months
EotF 09/13 03/14 6 months


The final pack of the current cycle is likely to be released late August/early September. If a new expansion was announced tomorrow, the eventual release date would likely be October at the earliest.

So at this stage it's still possible we could get the next expansion/cycle without much of a delay after the current one - but only just.

And, the answer is Dagobah related stuff, Luke from RotJ, and a new version of Obi-Wan along side EU Scum and Villainy cards. Looks like the Rebel and Navy pods will be technically non-EU (Lt. Page and General Tagge), while the smugglers will get Karrde.
