This week's Star Wars: The Old Republic Friday Update is the Battle for Alderaan Highlights Video. The video includes footage of a group of players taking on King Ulgo. Before this, a live stage demo from Gamespot featured the quest at E3 2011 along with many others. Up until now, the context of the event was muddy at best. However, we now have a greater understanding of Alderaan's story and more specifically, the self-proclaimed King Ulgo.
A working dissection of both of the videos is in the media gallery below. Make sure to check back for more. As with all of our dissections, items noted in prior dissections will not be mentioned here again unless otherwise important. Feel free to add your thoughts and items you noticed in the video. If we decide to use your find, we will credit you in the dissection.
The planets and moons of Star Wars: The Old Republic are designed to offer players unique environments and stories. To better understand each location, we strive to learn what we can about the history and lore that already exists. While working on our comprehensive planet overview, we realized some of the earlier announced planets are missing comprehensive lore articles. We decided to start filling in those gaps, so hit the jump for a closer look at Alderaan.
House Organa of Alderaan is doubtlessly familiar to most of our readers as the house that adopted Leia Skywalker and raised her as a princess. As the setting of the Hope cinematic trailer and the first announced Warzone, Alderaan itself is already proving to be an important location in Star Wars: The Old Republic and it would not be surprising for House Organa to play a pivotal role in this planet's story. Hit the jump to take a closer look at the history of House Organa.
Welcome to another exciting Fan Friday where we shine the spotlight on creative accomplishments from The Old Republic community, as well as share a behind-the-scenes look in the Developer Corner. We also have new avatars and smilies, and don't forget to vote in the polls we posted up!
We are honored by the many awards Star Wars: The Old Republic has earned from the press and media, and were committed to continuing to push for the highest quality gaming experience.

Creating a game that people enjoy is important to us, so were putting up the Star Wars: The Old Republic Awards page to share with everyone all the great attention the game has received!
Last but not least are three new Biographies that include Keeper, Bouris Ulgo, and Diab Duin. Aurebesh Translation after the jump along with a discussion on the details therein.
