I really liked the way this fanfic showed the real reason fett started killing all the jedi. it also showed how hard life was for the jedi after their fall.

This is nice! I like the way that Fett was introduced, at the start of his hunting career. The way that the Jedi are shown being hunted during the downfall of them is great...nice fic overall!

I thought this was an extremely interesting read. It has the makings of a great short story, action, suspence, and a slight twist at the end. I also liked the way that the jedi were treated after the fall of the republic. It seems they go through quite a transitional period in which they go from being the protectors of the galaxy to being hunted by the scum of the galaxy. All I can say is that it was a shame it wasnt longer because it would be the perfect follow up novel (with a bit of extra storyline) to bridge the gap between episodes 3 and 4.

Nice one!

An epic Jedi vs. Boba Fett battle, a screenshot from Jedi Outcast... AND the "bad guy" wins in the end? How could I not love this?

That story was totally awesome. Boba Fett is the greatest Star Wars character ever. You shold probably write one of Boba killing (euch) Jar Jar Binks.

What a cool story! Very different from most of the other stories out there. Your writing style is refreshing, and your plots have not been exhausted by other writers. I hope to see more from you here, and I hope to beta-read for you again.

How fitting that the greatest bounty hunter in the galaxy would begin his career by killing a member of the most powerful council in the galaxy.

Okay, I like Jedi, I like Boba Fett. These two aspects of me make it so I can't say I totally like the fic.
But perhaps someone can answer this question for me. How is it that Fett can kill Jedi? I mean, even though he's the greatest bounty hunter in the galaxy, he's still only a bounty hunter.
Well, even though it's not my cup o' tea, the fic is still good.

Oh my god! I loved this! I'm a HUGE Boba Fett fan (I've had some pretty heated Boba vs. Jango arguments) and I LOVED it! I've read all of Boba's official books and concluded that you portrayed him almost perfectly. The only flaw was that A. Boba Fett NEVER smiles, even on the Slave I, and B. his fighting style was a little off. But then again, he was new to the career, so I'll cut ya a little slack and give it a 10.

First a response to a couple of the commentators above. The Jedi killed here was not a memeber of the Jedi Council. He was only a Padawan at the time of the Order's disbanding. This also would be a reasoning behind why Boba could take him on. Aside from that, I'd guess that Jango specifically trained Boba on the short-comings of the Jedi fighting styles.

Now on the story. I have to be a bit nitpicky. Headhunters do not have a hyperdrive, and thus no slot for an astromech (since they don't need one to act as the navicomputer). Otherwise, not a bad story. I would've liked to see the Jedi make it out with the explosion covering his escape. Something like the flare of the explosion blinding Fett for a moment while the phototropic sheilding on his viewplate adjusted to the blast, just enough time for the Jedi to leap from the catwalk over the wall while the catwalk came crashing down below him. This would let Fett think that the blast had disintegrated the Jedi and let him escape. You could also have said that he dropped his lightsaber evading the blast in his jump over the wall, which would have made it all the more believable, as Fett could have recovered it (still smoking) from the charred ground. Also, why didn't the Jedi carve a hole in the wall? I would think you could have at least written that option as a discarded thought, not having enough time to cut one open due to the need to delfect blaster bolts.

Otherwise, I liked the writing, style, and form of this piece. The mood of it was also remarkable in the hunting of the Jedi aspect and the overall feelings of the populace at large. Well written, excepting those nitpicky points, and I can't fault the ending, even though I would have preferred a different one.

Z-95s can and do have hyperdrives. However, like some larger ships, they have a navicomputer, rather than an astromech droid. Z-95s have no astromech. (As a die-hard starfighter pilot, you can trust me on that.) Of course, it's always possible that the Z-95 is modified.

Good, good fic. Naysayers should remember that even Jedi make mistakes.

When I read this, I was reminded of the Obi-Wan VS. Jango Fett fight in Epidose II. THe jetpack, webbing, the disarming of the blaster pistols...

Great story! But, of course, the Jedi always seem to die in these post-ANH fics..

Pretty good stuff--I was wondering if the bounty hunter was Boba Fett when he used a jetpack to approach.

My only complaint is that it feels too short. It would've been nice to slow down the pace of the story a bit and flesh things out a bit. Then again, doing so probably would've made it harder to put off the Boba Fett Reveal til the end.

That last line's awesome, by the way.
