Bryan Young investigates the mysteries of the holocrons in his latest Playlist over at the Official Site.

For the longest time in fandom, holocrons were mythical objects that we’d heard much about. They were the keepers of all Jedi knowledge. Then we learned that Sith had holocrons, too. They were so important in keeping the knowledge of history straight, even Lucasfilm acquired one in the form of Leland Chee [keeper of continuity — editor]. Through the course of the canon, though, we’ve been introduced to them slowly over the years and they’ve become a fascinating point of mythology.

This play list will take you, chronologically, through what we know about the holocrons and just how powerful they can be.
