I could start this off by naming reasons why some people don’t like the prequels, but I’m not going to.

Why dwell on past disappointments?

If you don’t like the prequels, don’t watch them.  That’s what I do.  Instead, I decided to invent a completely different backstory.

I have not written the AT (Alternate Trilogy) because I think that the prequels suck or that I am a better writer than George Lucas.  These story treatments are simply what I would have thought up had the writing responsibilities been placed on my shoulders.

The inspirations for this are as follows:

JKenny at hubpages, author of another AT, who gave me the original idea for this project

An article by John L. Flynn called “back to the future of star wars”, (written before the PT) which contained speculation on what the prequels would be about.

and George Lucas’ Prequels.


I’ve tried to bring these stories back to the “core” of star wars, that is, the original film.  They’re written in the spirit of the original star wars film, and to help with the feel, most of the illustrations are by Ralph McQuarrie, the concept artist for the original films.

So far I’ve been amazed with the tremendously positive response I’ve received to these treatments.  Enjoy!

Episode I- Knights of Old

Episode II- Fall of the Republic
