What happened to Geonosis after Episode III?
« on: November 25, 2005, 05:52 PM »
I know that the droid production has been moved to Utapa system but i know that the production had to continue some place. Utapa was just the hideout for General Grevious and his company.

Mustafar was just the hide out for the CIS political leaders Nute Gunray, Rune Haako, and Poggle the Lesser. Why would Poggle go with the rest of the CIS when Geonosis is his home planet and where the droids were originated?

There was an unactivated droid factory there, besides he was ordered to go to Mustafar.

He was ordered to go there because the Jedi would hunt them down and kill them. Plus there is no proof to the Jedi that there was an unactivated droid factory.

I think the seperatists abandoned Geonosis because, just about every clone and every Jedi knew it was the main droid factory and seperatist base?  ???

It's tough to say...  After the initial battle there could have been a stalemate to take the planet...  It's fairly remote.  Also whatever CIS support available could have been on the way.  Geonosis was a major player so Poggle just bowing down and handing his dustball on a silver platter doesn't sit well with me.  In envision it being a place either immediately abandoned by the Republic due to the "costs" involved in trying to hold it against the costs in trying to control it via shipping raids and more passive methods of blockade or assaults on droid distribution attempts (from this planet anyway).  I also figure Geonosis is but one of MANY droid factories around the galaxy... 

I envision Cloning stepping up too and moving from just Kamino to a number of other planets...  Good to not have all your eggs in one basket afterall.

Geonosis though I just figure becomes a CIS held world that the Republic maybe eyes strategically but doesn't actively assault till either the end of the war, or immediately after the war's declared over it's basically overrun and controlled.  Just some ideas I had about it anyway.

Did you mean after Epsiode III or Episode II?

If you meant after Episode III, then I assume that ity would just go back to being a rather backwater, isolationist planet like it was before the Clone Wars. It isn't located in a place that would give it much strategic value, so I don't seen any real reason for the Empire to want it. And the Empire doesn't have too much control in the Outer Rim, so it wouldn'y make sense wasting resources defending it. But on the other hand, I suppose the factories could have been converted to produce something for the Empire and the Empire would enslave the Geonosians to work them.

The same kind of thin could be said about Naboo, or any PT/CW planet really, just cause it was important once doesn't mean it always will be. If you put it in earth terms, Kosovo and Yugoslavia were all over the news for along time several years ago, nowadays you almost never hear about them in the news, but it doesn't mean that they are no longer there. I think the same thing happened to Geonosis, with the CW over, people simply didn't care anymore and it just drifted back into obscurity. The galaxy is a huge place, I bet the only reason most people have heard of it is because the CW started there. If you were to ask most Americans to name every country on Earth and find it on a mp without names, not too many people could do it. And there are only about 200 or so countries on earth, there are supposed to be 1000's of planets in the Republic, and 1000's more that are undiscovered or independent.


Now if you are talking post Episode II, I'm going to have to agree with Jesse.

If the holiday special is taken into account, the planet is under Imperial control, but it seems to function sort of like occupied countries do/did during WW2.  Daily life went on, perhaps a resistance movement, but Kashyyyk was relatively rendered neutral and ineffective.

I have this theory that the slave trade pertained to Wookiee's off-world...  That a law's decreed that Wookiee's are "outlawed" species that are to stay on their planet or face possible arrest and enslavement.  Perhaps the law keeps them out of the core worlds, and inner-rim, but they're allowed in the outer rim and less strictly monitored/controlled worlds on the frontier.

The Wookiee's seem to be accepted...  But their possible aiding of Yoda to escape, and how that is viewed by the new order, could really have had negative consequences.  I don't see the planet as being totally enslaved though.  I see outlaw Wookiee's off-world being enslaved due to a law, that'd explain some EU, and things...  It'd mesh with the prequals too I think, and just work well.

I was working on a fan-fiction about the fate of Geonosis... my idea was that after the Clones swooped in, rescued the Jedi, destroyed the Droid Army, and then leveled the surface factories and hallowed the arenas... Unfortunately for the Republic, from there onward the battle of Geonosis was completely stalemated by guerrilla fighting Geonosians in the caves.

Think of it like a Vietnam, except the good guys don't have any heavy arms or air support to speak of, and the VC can fly. Entirely infantry and squad based warfare.

Good stuff.
