Description de l'ouvrage

18 août 2009 Star Wars: Essential Guides
Navigate the Star Wars universe as you never have before–with this fully illustrated, full-color guide that maps the entire galaxy.

You know the planets–from Alderaan and Corellia to Tatooine and Zonama Sekot–and the star systems, from the Deep Core to the Outer Rim. But now, for the first time, you can pinpoint their locations and chart the travels of your favorite characters through the vast reaches of space. Star Wars: The Essential Atlas is a galaxy-spanning trove of vital statistics and information ranging from the astronomical and geographical (“Systems, Sectors, Oversectors, and Regions”) to the historical and political (“The Sith Empire” and “The Great Hyperspace War”). Encompassing the entire Star Wars canon, including all the films, and the Clone Wars television series, plus the novels, comic books, video games, and more, this volume is packed with dozens of detailed maps and charts, as well as pertinent data and accompanying facts on

• the Empire: its length and breadth, political regions, populations, trade routes, major attractions, and trouble spots
• the Clone Wars: the trajectory of this decisive conflict across the universe, data on key battles and major Loyalist and Separatist worlds
• the adventures of Han Solo: the heroic rogue’s exploits throughout the galaxy–including his captaincy of the Millennium Falcon and his first, fateful meeting with Chewbacca–before his life-changing alliance with Luke Skywalker and Obi-Wan Kenobi
• the Sith Wars: the progression of the universal clash between the ancient Jedi Order, their dark side counterparts, and the Mandalorian warriors who fought against both orders
• and much, much more

From Hutt Space to the Unknown Regions, from the Knights of the Old Republic and Episode I to the Fate of the Jedi and Legacy era, Star Wars: The Essential Atlas is the ultimate gateway to space fantasy’s most brilliantly imagined and endlessly intriguing galaxy.

J'adore !!! Franchement, c'est la première fois que je lis un guide Michelin... On ne peut qu'apprécier la richesse de ce livre, tant par les cartes détaillées que par les données précises sur les secteurs, les planètes. Un atlas géographique mais aussi historique où l'on peut suivre l'évolution de la galaxie à travers les ages. Un must pour les fans, indispensable dans une bibliothèque !

5.0 étoiles sur 5 A great resource for the die-hard fan! 21 août 2009
Par D. Hawk - Publié sur Amazon.com
Being both a Star Wars fan and a gamer, this book fills a niche that has needed filling ever since the huge slew of Expanded Universe material has been released. This book contains multiple maps of the SW galaxy, each broken down by specific region such as the Core Worlds and the Outer Rim, along with an assortment of worlds that play major roles in the movies as well as the EU material. But the real meat and potatoes of the book lies in the historical atlas section, which spans from ancient history (the Infinite Empire and Xim the Despot) all the way to the Corellian-Galactic Alliance conflict which is prominent in the Legacy of the Force series (also has a map of the era of the Legacy comic book series).

It's a very useful resource if you're confused on the sequence events in the various media released, such as the LOTF novels (as I have been multiple times), running a game of the Star Wars RPG, or if you're simply looking for a great read. I recommend this to any Star Wars fan!

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Finally, a Definitive Atlas! 24 novembre 2009
Par John Bindas - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché|Achat vérifié
When I purchased this I didn't expect to be as impressed as I was. A guide like this is a difficult, painful undertaking. But Daniel Wallace and Jason Fry do an outstanding job of balancing history, raw geography, and interesting planetary data into an entertaining and incredibly useful guide.

The Galaxy Map in the first chapter alone is almost worth the price. Coupled with the grid system it introduces and the index in the back, locating just where a planet is becomes much simpler than hunting along the circles of the various sectors, hoping to stumble across the planet you're looking for. A larger poster of this would be an item I'd purchase a few copies of.

If you run Star Wars at all, you need this book. Hyperspace time calculations used to be a wild shot in the dark. With this in hand, you've finally got a logical route you can plan out. But even non-roleplayers will find this a handy reference and a good read.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Shiny Happy Atlas for Faraway Galaxy.... 12 septembre 2009
Par SB Crumb42 - Publié sur Amazon.com

Back in 2002, "Star Trek Star Charts" was published. Like movie 1 and 5 and the worst episodes of the various series, that book became an example of how NOT to do it. In terms of the star charts, several systems and places were missing entirely, it was overly slim and skimpy, and it did not have a coordinate index.

The "Star Wars Atlas" (an update of 1998's Guide to Planets and Moons) corrects all of the Trek book's mistakes, expands upon its predecessor, and more.

It comes in three sections. Section 1 is a political discussion of that galaxy that almost competes with the best civics courses. The middle section is a selection of some 85 planets. Although there are no detailed planet maps, this lack is offset by fairly complete system descriptions. Section 3 is a long detailed historical atlas, with maps for each era and many topics. Finally, it ends with a very detailed coordinate index, the way any respectable atlas should.

The map of the galaxy is beautiful and detailed, it really should be made into a poster. Also, 'twould be nice to see a companion "planetary atlas" volume published someday. In the meantime, the current atlas is satisfactory, containing most of the stuff you'd ever need for the topic, and lots more besides.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 What a great reference! 24 août 2010
Par Enjolras - Publié sur Amazon.com

I bought this book because I wanted to start reading some of the Star Wars novels again, but was intimidated by how much the Expanded Universe has grown in the past decade. I remembered how much I liked the "essential" Star Wars guides when I was younger. Sadly, these books are also become somewhat redundant - with wikipedia - or Wookiepedia - nowadays, you can easily find information about the major Star Wars characters, species, and ships on the internet.

Fortunately, Star Wars: The Essential Atlas is different. Unlike many other "essential" books, it is actually pretty essential if you really want to understand the galaxy.This isn't simply a bunch of pretty pictures (like the The New Essential Guide to Vehicles and Vessels). Rather, it is a collection of maps demarcating the borders of the major political groups and plotting the routes the main characters took in the movies and Expanded Universe. Finally, you can see where Tatooine, Hoth, and Endor fall in relation to each other. This is particularly useful if you want to understand some of the more convoluted military campaigns, such as the Thrawn series. There's absolutely nothing on the web the provides this level of information and detail.

The book also has a section featuring several important planets - almost like the older The Essential Guide to Planets and Moons, but much better and with great renditions of the planets. My only minor complaint is that it doesn't have a small picture of the native species to go with each planet. But, then again, that'd probably way too much for one book.

I'd say if you get any one Star Wars reference, make sure it's this one. It's actually very useful. Oh, and by the way, it does have some awesome, unique artwork (I love the realistic clone emperor), but that's only a bonus. This is first and foremost a reference.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Great Star Wars Reference 2 février 2010
Par Yu-Jin Chia - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché|Achat vérifié
Though it's technically labeled as a new publication, not a revamp of the old 'essential' series, this is essentially a redux of the Essential Guide to Planets and Moons. I have that one too, and in this case (unlike most of the others) I can say with no reservations that it's a much better book. It includes many details missing from the old guide, such as population, imports/exports, number and type of moons, size of habitable planets, and species makeup. That's not all, though- the Atlas includes a general exposition on star travel, interstellar objects, tradelanes, a rundown of regions and politics, and a section on galactic history. There's also some amazingly detailed maps of the galaxy or galactic sectors, and- best of all- it's all in full color.

This book is one of the few out of the literally hundreds in print that I would say is a must-have for Star Wars fans. It'd be especially useful for those playing the Star Wars RPG. I've also bought the supplements for that game, and I must say that in many respects this is a much better (not to mention cheaper) resource. Whereas the Guide to Planets and Moons was more of a recap of events that took place in paperback novels, which just happened to organize it by worlds, this really is focused on the galaxy itself. Never has that been presented in such stunning detail; the charts alone are worth the price of admission.
