    To bad he didn't have a vision of hot bootknocking...but then we might have never got him out of that cave. Nice update!

    »» Master Luke slept through the entire journey (he calls it a hibernation trance, I call it sleep - beings do not snore while in a trance)

    Ha! Luke snores! [face_laugh]

    »» and left me alone to entertain myself, which I did by listening to the X-wing's jokes. The X-wing picked up a lot of dirty jokes while serving in Rogue Squadron and likes to repeat them to me... over and over again.

    I like the idea of the X-wing telling jokes. Especially dirty ones. [face_tee_hee]

    Keep it coming!

    »» Also, I hope General Calrissian has a good droid-maintenance facility. I'm in dire need of a lubrication bath to clean out all this mud.

    I never thought R2 to be slightly vain and a bit idle, but he can´t be perfect now, can he? That makes him even more loveable. [face_love]

    Hehehe. Great update. I guess R2 would get a little bored while Luke has his 'hibernation trances'.

    Uou can't blame Artoo for wanting an oil bath after Dagobah, all that mud and moiste can't be good for his circuitry. He could rust.

    Artoo wants so tell them, he really does, but he can't, knowing that it will be hard for them)

    LOL!! I just love Artoo. Poor guy, he deserves a good cleaning. At least the X-Wing is decent company when Master Luke is snorin...er....hibernating! ;) Great chapter!!

    Luke snoring? Yeah...I am guessing that is right. Artoo Detoo knows so much....I wonder how much he really knows that he NEVER reveals that he never puts in his "diary"

    Just imagine a person sitting on his X-wing, head tilting back... anyone would snore in this situation.

    Artoo is getting snarkier and snarkier! And who knew that the X-Wing could tell dirty jokes! (I didn't even think it could be sentient! :p ) I wonder if we'll get more related to the vision!

    This is just adorable. I love Artoo's comments on the personalities of the ships and how the X-wing picked up dirty jokes from Rogue Squadron. [face_laugh] And that he's attempted Jedi training (and thinks Leia needs to practice more so as to catch up to him!) You tell her, Artoo. Like pretty much every EU-reading Star Wars fan ever, I wish the book authors hadn't beaten around the bush so much with that.

    Thanks everybody! [:D]

    For those of you who'd like to see Artoo tell everything - it's not going to happen in this diary because I'm keeping it canon, but I am plotting an AU in which he does, I just need to figure out how he'll reveal the RotS part and find some time to write the whole thing.

    Entry Seven



    ENTRY » START NEW
    GALACTIC DATE » 44:4:27 GrS
    GALACTIC POSITION » Nkllon, Athega System
    SITUATION » Approaching Nkllon


    »» The trip to Nkllon was also uneventful. This is a statistical anomaly for us so I'm keeping my sensors on alert. This phase is due to end at any time.

    »» PLACE DESCRIPTION: Nkllon is a small world in the Athega System; despite it being extremely rich in hfredium, kammris and dolovite, it has remained uninhabited due to its extremely harsh temperatures. I'm referring to the kind of heat that will LITERALLY melt a ship's hull. But this was until General Calrissian had the smart idea to mine it. He proceeded to have a giant mobile mining complex built, so that he could carry out mining operations in the dark side of the planet (do not confuse with the dark side of the Force) following its rotation. This complex has been designated Nomad City. He also had built a giant super-cooled radiation umbrella vessels (they look very much like giant umbrellas) called shielships that would escort incoming and outgoing traffic in order to protect them from the massive radiation.

    »» So, this is where we are. We have approached the planet and have been assigned a shieldship that will escort us to Nomad City and that the journey will take approximately ten standard hours. We have also been informed that we will be sharing our ride with an unidentified Corellian light-freighter

    »» Hey, wait a minute! I know that unidentified Corellian light-freighter. It's the Millennium Falcon. HI FALCON!! Suddenly, I feel right at home. I also have the nagging impression that our uneventful phase is about to come to an end. I wonder why?

    »» I can tell Master Luke is very happy to see the family. He is still upset about his vision on Dagobah. He is now hailing the Falcon and is talking with Captain Solo. I can also tell, through his voice print, that Captain Solo is very suspicious of the situation, so I am now trying to think of a way to prove to him that we are us.

    »» Nevermind, I don't have to do anything, they brought out C-3PO to talk to me and confirm my identity. Once again the droids save the day.

    »» Really, sometimes Threepio makes the stupidest affirmations. Can you believe he was actually doubting my resourcefulness and survival skills. Why, if it wasn't for me, he'd have been a scrap-pile ages ago.

    »» Stupid Threepio!

    Well, Threepio does tend to get himself in more trouble...I think its his worrisome nature

    Go Artoo! I am glad I am reading this because I get to understand the plot of TTT. I read TTT a lot of times and the only parts of the plot I remember involve Luke and Mara. I don't remember any of this plot leading up to the encounter on Myrkr. To me TTT is Myrkr....fuzzy about the details, but I think Mara saves Leia's twins...Mara talks Luke into saving Karrde...and then they are on Wayland. When I got to the last pages, he gives her the lightsaber and leaves and then she says. "Wait, I come with you." And then I start looking through the back of the book wondering if somebody tore out all the bootknocking pages. :(

    :p I love this diary and I am really looking forward to Luke getting picked up by Karrde. ;)

    Oh, R2 and C3P0 are like a old a married couple!

    But, I agree with JL, as much is I love Zahn's writing, I do find his plots to be confusing, so thank you for doing this diary. I get TTT again without the confusion.

    I'm glad i can help @Briannakin and @Jedi_Lover.
    Zahn's books do tend to have a lot of things happening at the same time and in a lot of backgrounds so you have to remember you're only getting Artoo's side of the story. There are a lot of cool scenes that won't be featured here.

    @Hazel, as long as you include the scene from the Myrkr forest I'll be happy. I bet Artoo won't be too thrilled about Luke pulling him around on a makeshift travois. Or maybe he will be happy since he doesn't have to do any work. :p
