The only one I would hail to by Evolvana The only one I would hail to by Evolvana
Thrawn would have been a greater Emperor than Palpatine. Palpatine was too crual, I hate him. Thrawn is the perfect guy for the job :heart: Luke and Mara agree on this point!!

Well, Thrawn Was a gentleman of sorts, to the best of my knowledge, he precipitated NO massacres! That is one reason I consider him not a villain but a tragic hero.

He said he destroyed a planet once, because he misunderstood the art of its people, but he regretted it. So massacres could have happened, but we don't know why exactly.

MMM, so far as I can interpret, he misread how to demoralize the inhabitants, so Every Single One of them took up arms; hense, became a combatant, and had to be eliminated, or so would have been his thinking.

I've never read anything like that, Zahn wrote in his author comments in the 20th anniversary Heir to the Empire book that we would like one day to write the story about what happened, but never gave details...

I am thinking this, put yourself in his shoes, your vessel (probably an Imperator class Star Destroyer) is in orbit of a planet that's rioting in one of it's major cities that has a garrison, you Will NOT risk the lives of the soldiers holding the planet, but you DO NOT want to wipe out the inhabitants, so what do you do?
It seems that Imperial doctrine in such a situation was to impliment a 'show of force' (bombard a section of the rioting city, to demoralize the inhabitants, but let as many of them live as possible, so they can work for the 'cause'), it Doesn't Work! Now, instead of suppressing the riots, you have a full-blown planetery rebellion going on!
You can't rely upon the natives for fighting or garrison duty, due to the rebellion, and Palpatine is now demanding you put down this revolt and Get ON With The Mission (and Palpatine is the sort of man to imprison his own officers who displease him in Concentration Camps as Prisoners- as well as kill the families of these men!), so, you order the planet bombarded from orbit, to protect the troops on the surface... figuring that the inhabitants are replceable, in the end.
One possible theory as to how it happened.
Also, law on massacres is simple (as most crimes against morals), not only don't do it, but sometimes it does happen, so this is it simply put: IF you Want to do wrong, you've already done it, it doesn't matter if you decide not to do it for any reason other than 'it's wrong'- that's the only one that'll 'buy you back', if you end up doing so (these are, of course, excempting intrinsically evil acts), it Can possibly be excused, as a 'unavoidable situation'.
I have just given you a situation in which a planetary massacre happened without the perpetraitor being accountable for anything aside from 'defense of others'; called 'justifiable homocide' (I think).
This is just one scenerio of how it could have happened...

I would hail to Palpatine, he was cruel, but he understood many more things than Grand Admiral Thrawn. Further, I respect him for his cunning and ability. However... If I had a choice, I would choose Thrawn.

Let's say that Palpatine is better at politics, he's a politician, lier, good at manipulating people.

Thrawn prefers knowing his ennemies, war, doesn't like to lie or politics at all.

So yeah for politics Palpatine is better, but if Thrawn was Emperor he would maybe delegate the politics to someone else and concentrate on war ^^

Thrawn is human, Napoleon was human. Napoleon loved his people, and he was a very clever man. Thrawn sounds very similar.

Since when Thrawn is human? o_o he's a Chiss, blue skin, red eyes, he is not human at all. The culture of his people is also very different from the culture of most humans in Star wars.

Chiss are aliens, they're not human at all. Like Zeltrons are not humans or Twi'leks are not humans.

Chiss have blue skin, red eyes, can see in the dark, their skin color changes from bright to pale blue depending on the oxygen, they grow up very quickly (child body to adult body in just 1 or 2 years), have a totally different culture, their body is usually more muscular/can endure more than the human body, etc.

However Chiss (like zeltrons and arkanians) can reproduce with humans. But they're not humans.

I'm not sure if he'd be the perfect guy...i mean, he was born into the military, i'm not sure he would be able to rule a world without war...
(I think jobs like Chief of the Police-Force or maybe detective would suite him better than emperor, but that'S just my opinion xD)
but i have to agree, he would have been greater than Palpatine

Although I disagree that Thrawn would've been a better Emperor, this is a great piece and Thrawn is awesome. Long live Thrawn (and the Chiss)! I could totally see Thrawn with that expression too. Great job!

Thrawn didn't like politics, so maybe he would have worked with a politician friend he trusts... but I'm sure he would be a more "right" emperor ^^ thanks!

I don't know if you know, but Timothy Zahn wrote a novel "Choices". It will be released August 30, 2011 and Thrawn will appear there. As Wookieepedia says "It will be set shortly after the Allegiance novel and will feature Luke Skywalker, Han Solo, Princess Leia, Chewbacca, Mara Jade, Thrawn and the Hand of Judgment."

Thrawn didn't like politics because he didn't like liying to people, that's why he didn't really want to be an emperor. He prefers to be the master of the army :)

Y'know, I've been re-reading the Thrawn trilogy this week, and I was just thinking the same thing. The galaxy wouldn't have been such a bad place if Thrawn had won, he was a decent man. (And one of my favourite characters in anything ever.)

I wonder what the galaxy would like with Thrawn as an Emperor. Thrawn was not cruel like Palpatine, I'm sure he would have been a wonderful leader for the Empire, as he was in the Thrawn trilogy.
