May the Force be with us this coming year.

No matter what your age, gender, location, religion, or political affiliation is, we think it's safe to say that 2016 was a pretty rough one for humankind. But as one Doctor said, "The way I see it, every life is a pile of good things and bad things. The good things don't always soften the bad things, but vice versa, the bad things don't necessarily spoil the good things and make them unimportant." And so we give thanks and celebrate the good things.

Moving on from one geeky galaxy to another, this week the Force was strong with us as Rogue One: A Star Wars Story exceeded all expectations and shot straight to the top (or top three) of most fans. Within two hours, it managed to make us care deeply for a new group of rebels, introduce fresh role models to this generation, expand the already-wide universe of Star Wars, squeeze in a few cameos, and seamlessly connect the past to the present to the future. This year has been cruel to the heart, but still, for Rogue One alone, what a time to be alive.

"Trust the Force." —Lyra

"If the Empire has this kind of power, what chance do we have? The question is, what choice? Run, hide, plead for mercy, scatter your forces. You give way to an enemy this evil with this much power and you condemn the galaxy to an eternity of submission. The time to fight is now." —Jyn
