Star Wars: Rebellion Easter Egg - Sandman has the Force?

Start a new game with the largest galaxy size selected.

In one of the star systems at the bottom is a planet named Neelgaiman (or something spelled like that).

This is an obvious tribute to Neil Gaiman, the creator of the Sandman comic book series.

Actually, this is a reference to 'Children of the Jedi', by Barbara Hambly, one of the few decent Star Wars novels out there. She mentions the planet Neelgaimon in it. I don't remember the exact circumstances, but I know she and Neil met at a convention of some sort and got to talking. So the planet's name isn't original, but the little description in the planet finder is...what are 'sand mines', anyway?

If you can get a hold of the Star Wars encyclopedia, the planet neelgaimon is in it. It is a desolate place. But, wow, its even in this book, how cool.

You know, I read that book and I never noticed that, but you're right. Sandman is a comic book that Neil wrote.
