Purely for canon reasons, I like the SAG keeping their established name. Maybe include "Imperial Youth" as a popular colloquial name?

For the sake of irony, reread your post, then read your signature...

LOL!

Since I've been paralleling COMPNOR with the Nazi SS, I'm toying with the idea of changing the Sub-Adult Group's name to the Imperial Youth.

Thoughts?


For my own part, I think I like the SAGroup name better than "Imperial Youth." Ol' Palpy had a big tendency to use portmanteau words. For example, in the novelization of RotS, the name of the hospital where Vader was made into a cyborg? Emperor Palpatine Surgical Reconstruction Center. How was it referred to ever after? EmPalSuRecon Center. It's the same with Sub-Adult Group becoming SAGroup. (And with enough research, I'm sure that other examples could be found; hell, there are probably at least a dozen more examples in the Imperial Sourcebook alone.)

For my part, I'd rather stay with this pattern as it so neatly fits with Palpatine's style of using portmanteau words to boost his own self-importance. I wouldn't mind an additional line about how some people may refer to SAGroup as "Imperial Youth" as a lampshade hanging to the readers, but don't make it a full name change. "SAGroup" just seems like a perfect title that so suits Palpatine's style that I feel it would be a shame to change it.

Hah. Well, I guess there's a time and place to break canon - and it's different for everyone. This wouldn't be the time for me. It feels too inconsequential to bother changing.
