NOT SURE YOU SUPPORT THE EMPIRE OR THE REBEL ALLIANCE?…
PERHAPS YOU ARE LOOKING OUT FOR YOURSELF!!…
WELL…Welcome to the SMUGGLERS DEN!!!
MY STAR JOURNEY
I’ve always had a fascination for interstellar travel…traveling to distant star systems, meeting alien creatures, and exploring foreign cultures. Star Wars is a mythic story of our times which allows us to explore those ideas. When I saw Star Wars – A New Hope back in 1977 with my pop, I was hooked, and a fan for life! Now, in my later years, I have an expanded interest on space travel and interstellar relationships…how does the technology work, what are the dynamic motives behind the Empire and the Rebels, what are the metaphysical underpinnings of the Force! Where can we get the books, models, and other items that can assist us on our intergalactic journey??
WHY I WANT TO HELP FELLOW SPACE SMUGGLERS
I am here to explore and discuss the political dynamics of smuggling in the context of the Star Wars universe, using Han Solo’s adventures in the world of smuggling as a baseline. My focus is to bring to light the psychology of the smuggler, the sociology of smuggling, and the high risk games, often at the risk of life and limb, of smuggling. I will point to various resources and products that can assist us in creating that adventure, illustrate a theory in galactic space travel, or describe the sociological idiosyncrasies of an alien species. This is all for advancing the cause of the human species as we are on the verge of reaching for the stars.
The main resource for a space smuggler is the Star Wars Smuggler’s Guide.
THE GOAL OF SMUGGLERS DEN
Heralded by the Han Solo movie, this blog is dedicated to exploring the fascinating dimensions of smugglers, space scum, and other illegal space villainy. Through the various books from the expanded Star Wars universe which chronicles Han Solo’s adventures, and considering other relevant resources, we will gain an understanding of what it’s like to eke out an existence as a space smuggler. In our current, earth timeframe, we are entering the 21st century, and as technology is advancing at hyperspeed, and the political climate is more charged and polarized than ever, we as a human species should begin to contemplate our place in the universe. Who knows, we could be living in a ‘Star Wars’ world in the not-to-distant future (…some say we already are!). And…some of us just might want to fend for ourselves!
If you ever need a hand or have any questions, feel free to leave them below and I will be more than happy to help you out.
All the best,
