A word from the Coruscant Courier creator,
Jedi Jin Su:
I started the Coruscant Courier after discussing the news
media between my roommate and myself and wondering why there is no media in
Star Wars. Look at the media coverage we have Star Wars alone…we have
print, computer, television, we even have news on our cellphones on live
streaming video. The Courier is a combination “official” newspaper that
gets to interview real senators and legitimate business people and tabloid.
Some stories present some of the seamier underworld of Coruscant but it
tries to remain real news journalism but still sell news pieces to the
Some of the ideas come from suggestions people have made, or things that I
might want to read about if I were a citizen of the Republic. All of the
stories are AU or Alternative Universe so they can and do include any and
all characters from the Star Wars Movies. They try to mirror what is going

The Horoscopes are based on Feng Shui and Chinese Astrology with a bit of
Buddhism and Shintoism thrown in for good measure. An issue can take

roommate who assumes the writer’s computer once in a while. The other 15%
we will give to the individual characters that offer their enthusiastic help
and support in writing.
In the future we hope to be bringing out competition with real tabloid
journalism that brings the best and worst of the tabloids to the general
public of Coruscant. Since we will be seeing more of the underworld of
Coruscant Society it only seems politically correct to have tabloids to go
with it now.
