(WARNING!!! This blog may contain spoilers) 

On its way to being the biggest movie in all of box-office history, Star Wars the Force Awakens is the reawakening of a legacy that has touched the hearts and captured the imaginations of millions. The new storyline begins 30 years after the events of Star Wars: Episode VI Return of the Jedi. The First Order has risen from the ashes of the Galactic Empire and is opposed by General Leia Organa and the Resistance. Both sides are searching for the missing Jedi Master Luke Skywalker. New heroes rise in the form of Rey, an extremely force-sensitive scavenger from Jakku, and Finn, a stormtrooper turned hero who defects from the first order. Together they embark on a journey to find Luke Skywalker and cripple the First Order by destroying their new super-weapon, Starkiller Base. Kylo Ren, the apprentice of the Sith Lord Snoke, opposes these heroes.

Why Upgrade Kronos? Discover the “Why” behind a Kronos Upgrade

Jenna Ryckman — Apr 2015

Faced with the dilemma of keeping up with service packs, advisories, and upgrades, Prince Hamlet of Kronosland despondently asked, "To upgrade or not to upgrade, that is the question ---."

The Mystery of Kronos Workflow Notifications

Chandler Paris — May 2013
