I thought of this while reading the Force Awakens IA thread and thinking about timelines and how FFG would have to make a new core game or just a new game to fit the new trilogy into IA.

The timelines are so different, almost all the hero allies would have to have new versions of themselves, never mind the first order changes.

This also got me thinking that since IA currently has Luke as "A New Hope" version, does anyone think FFG is going to come out with a Jedi ally version of him after Hoth? He's really the only hero I can think of that truly changed skills wise in the films and would warrant a second version...

Thoughts?

I think everyone assumes we'll be getting a black clad Jedi Luke for the Jedi based expansion.

A good hint at their plans is found in the "Time Periods" of the side missions. Luke's side mission's time period is 3-4. I'd bet that we'll see another version for 5-7. Likewise, I think there'll be a "Han Solo, Rebel General", to cover the post-thaw period.

Chewbacca seems to have the latest period, 2-7. If they want to add characters from The Force Awakens, they simply need to add Time Periods beyond 7.

It'a admittedly open for interpretation, but I see the current time periods as:

1 - Pre ANH
2 - Tatooine Escape (ANH)
3 - First Death Star Battle (ANH)
4 - ESB - (Han's endpoint)
5 - Tatooine Rescue (RotJ) (Fett's endpoint)
6 - Battle for Endor (RotJ) (Vader's endpoint)
7 - Post RotJ

You say "the Jedi based expansion" like it's a known thing...Is it?

We literally just had our Empire expansion, it's not a risky bet that in a we'll soon hear about the next small expansion followed by next years big almost certainly Jedi expansion.

Ahh you're referencing the movies. "Jedi" as in Return of the Jedi I see.

I don't have the exact quote in front of me, but the RRG actually hints at this. When describing the rules surrounding unique characters it says that you can only have one of each based on character name and it specifically references the text in parenthesis. Something along the lines of "if you have Luke Skywalker (Hero of the Rebellion) you can't have any other Luke Skywalker." Based on that I'd say it's more than likely.
