I find the idea of Qui-Gon being a re-incarnated non-Sith Plagueis rather intriguing, as it ties into 2 aspects:
- His knowledge to live beyond the grave
- Plagueis knowledge of how to create life
The 2 interlock. One thing I'm not too keen of is a mind-wipe of QGJ, sounds like what happens to R2 and 3PO.
But, to me, it makes sense. And it would definitely tie TPM and ROTS together, and make sense about Palpatine's whole scheme.
Why was he already so interested in 9 year old Anakin? He hated the Jedi, so why would he be interested in this Jedi-wanabe, if not for the fact that this kid was THE pinnacle of his whole plan, the crux of it all.
Maul and Dooku were really utterly just pawns, filler, to lay the groundwork for Anakin's turn, if this story is true.
This, to me, would make the PT a lot more sensible.
I've been thinking about what Palpatine's plan was. In AOTC he became Supreme Chancellor, he had his power. Apparently, he could've issued Order 66 then as well, the end result would've been the same. The Jedi wiped out.
But he didn't, he needed Anakin, he wanted Anakin. His whole plot, it seems, was directed at Anakin becoming a Sith. So, Anakin cannot just be another Sith as some kind of run-of-the-mill next Sith, as just a replacement for Dooku and Maul.
And as said, Palpatine cries out "Unlimited Power" when Anakin truly turns, I belief that, in this light, Anakin is a catalyst for Unlimited Sith-power.
If this had been interweaved with the PT, it would've all made a lot more sense.
