Star Wars "Lost Tribe of the Sith: Paragon" by John Jackson Miller

The Suvudu Free Library released the third part in the Star Wars Lost Tribe of the Sith series this month titled Lost Tribe of the Sith: Paragon by John Jackson Miller.  Another wonderful addition to this series which dives us into the reality of what it means to be Sith, how this tribe came to be and their struggles for internal and external power.  This short series has been a fantastic edition to Star Wars lore and does not dissapoint.
Here is a synopsis from the Suvudu Free Library:
The ruthless cunning of the Sith Order has served the shipwrecked crew of the Omen well on the alien planet Kesh. Subjugating the superstitious Keshiri race by posing as its fabled overlords has ensured the Sith's survival -- while they struggle in secret to return to the stars. But after fifteen years on their adopted world, some among the lost tribe have grown restless and fearful that assimilation will consume their Sith heritage. Now, as rival factions begin to appear, a shocking disaster throws into doubt the Sith's future on Kesh.

In the distant city of Tetsubal, the entire native populace is suddenly wiped out by a grisly plague of unknown origin. With terrifying speed, more cities succumb to the mysterious contagion. Only the Sith remain unharmed -- so far. And as Sith commander Yaru Korsin grapples with the looming loss of the paradise he rules and the race his people have come to depend upon, he must confront the dark possibility that the catastrophe may not be cruel fate but insidious sabotage.

Target - Taking over...Mercury?

I saw the original photo (left) on NASA's "Astronomy Picture of the Day" and could not resist.  It seems Target has set some new take over MERCURY!  Science Fiction?  Fantasy?  Reality?  Dun dun duuunnnnnnn.

Here is a little blurb from the NASA website in regard to the original photo of "A Double Ring Basin on Mercury":
"What caused the smooth floor inside the double ringed basin on Mercury? No one is sure. The unusual feature spans 160 kilometers and was imaged during the robotic MESSENGER spacecraft's swing past our Solar System's innermost planet last week. Double and multiple ringed basins, although rare, have also been imaged in years past on Mars, Venus, Earth, and Earth's Moon. Mercury itself has several doubles, including huge Caloris basin, Rembrandt basin, and enigmatic Raditladi basin. Most large multiple ringed basins on planets and moons are caused initially by a forceful impact by a single asteroid or comet fragment. One interesting feature of the above-imaged double ring is that the basin center appears much smoother than the region between the rings. Possibly, the internal floor was smoothed by later volcanic activity. Also possible, however, is that the floor was smoothed by melting and flowing of material upon impact. MESSENGER has now completed its last flyby of Mercury but will return and attempt to enter orbit in 2011 March."
