    I love that the X-wing tells dirty jokes. Now you've got me wondering if the Falcon has also heard those jokes from the X-wing, or if R2 and the Falcon talk to each other about the X-wing. Do the ships talk to each other, or is R2 the intermediary for each?

    The "statistical anomaly" and "droids save the day" parts were great and so very true! :D R2 knows what's what.

    I love Artoo and Threepio as a team. I remember watching their adventures in the tv show 'Droids' when i was a kid and loving it. It was so funny.





    @Thumper09 - i think it's entirety possible that the Falcon and the x-wing talk to each other when they are alone in the same hangar. :p I can just imagine them gossiping about Han and Leia's arguments. [face_laugh]
    I put that bit in about the x-wing because the book clearly states that Luke won't allow for the maintenance crew to wipe out the fighter's memory so they have to call Artoo in whenever they have to calibrate it.

    Poor Artoo - when he encounters an uneventful situation, he becomes even more convinced that something big is about to happen soon. :p

    Hehe, how cute that Han used the droids to confirm Luke's identity! It's kind of sad that this is exactly how communication is nowadays - through encryption and passwords...

    Thanks everybody! [:D]

    As per usual, Artoo's insight serves him well, as you'll about to see

    Entry Eight




    ENTRY » START NEW
    GALACTIC DATE » 44:4:27 GrS
    GALACTIC POSITION » Nkllon, Athega System
    SITUATION » Performing damage control after imperial attack.


    »» In my previous entry I referred the statistical anomaly that comprised our recent lack of unfortunate events. I have to report now that the anomaly has resolved itself. Trouble has found us once again.

    »» SITUATION UPDATE: Upon our arrival at Nkllon, and just as General Calrissian was welcoming us to his new enterprise, an Imperial Star Destroyer and its squadrons of TIEs showed up, unquestionably uninvited and without the protection of a shieldship. That could not have been comfortable for the Star Destroyer. What are those Imps thinking, that ship will suffer tremendously under the heat of Nkllon's star. Seriously? And they call droids heartless.

    »» The usual skirmish followed. While I tried to restore our comms system, Master Luke tried one of his Jedi tricks on the imperials. He managed to scramble the Imps brains long enough for the Falcon and the local defense force to take them down without too much trouble. The whole thing was over in a little over thirty standard minutes and the Star Destroyer departed before its systems were completely fried by the heat, taking the remainder of the imperial forces that took part in the attack.

    »» So now C-3PO and I are checking the Falcon for damage sustained during the attack while the Humans and Wookiee are inside idly chatting, or whatever they do while we droids work.

    »» Oh, yes, I have to add to this report that it appears that the true casualty of the imperial attack was Nomad City's work force. Fifty-one mole miners were taken. Nomad City's mainframe computer was outraged. It almost zapped me when I asked what a mole miner was. It took it almost three standard minutes to explain to me that a mole miner is a drilling device that can be used in a vacuum.

    »» Now the question on everyone's minds is - what does the Empire want with fifty-one mole miners?

    »» Oh, Captain Solo is calling C-3PO in now » crazy plan alert!!!

    Oh, oh, oh! I know what they want with the mole miners! I do!

    Why aren't they calling on me??

    R2 is right; a crazy plan has to be in the works.

    Artoo is so sympathetic with even Star Destroyers.then again I suppose being a droid outside of knowing the Imps are bad SD are just vessels....tools to be used so yeah...they are neutural

    @jcgoble3 - [face_laugh] Actually it's not Solo's plan, it's Lando's. I'm not sure what that says about it, though. ;)



    @Lady_Misty - yeah, they're not calling on me either. :p



    @EmeraldJediFire - Artoo cares about all scraps of metal :p



    @Jade_eyes - :) Thanks Jade!



    @earlybird-obi-wan - Thanks earlybird! :)



    @Briannakin - it goes off every other day and when it doesn't Artoo worries. :p



    @Jedi_Lover - Thanks JL! [:D]



    @Jedi_Liz - Artoo thought the fazing out was part of the Jedi trick so he didn't think anything of it. Be had no way of knowing it was C'baoth.

    Hehe, apparently Artoo doesn't quite understand what droids were invented for... :p

    I'm also curious as to what the Empire wants with fifty-one mole miners...

    You'll find out. I can tell you now it's a VERY crazy plan. There are a lot of crazy plans in this trilogy.

    Count me in as someone else who loved the "crazy plan alert," LOL.

    I think this is the first time I've ever felt bad for a Star Destroyer. :p

    Hopefully the Falcon came through unscathed, and I'm looking forward to the crazy plan! :D

    Love Artoo's thoughts. Especially on what the humans and wookiees were doing while the droids worked. [face_laugh] I love his sass and seeing all of this from his POV. Can you add me to the tag list?? I'm sorry I keep missing updates!!

    Haha!! Mission accomplished!!! :D

    The Falcon only suffered the usual bruises, nothing serious. The next entry will be all about the crazy plan.



    Thanks! [:D] I'll add you do the list (convo) right now.

    Really love the droid's eye view of the galaxy in Artoo's entries. He worries about that poor abused Star Destroyer (I can see it now, a droid-run Star Destroyer rescue organization -- they're not bad, they just need loving care and a good home!) And the crabby city computer is offended at losing the mole miners.

    Entry Nine

    ENTRY » START NEW
    GALACTIC DATE » 44:4:29 GrS
    GALACTIC POSITION » En route to Jomark
    SITUATION » Traveling through hyperspace.


    »» SITUATION UPDATE: We (Master Luke, the X-wing and I) have just entered hyperspace outside of the Athega system. We are on our way to Jomark where Anakin-Junior hopes to find Jedi Master C'baoth. According to newly spread intel, the Jedi Master has been hiding there since the fall of the Old Republic and the Jedi Order.

    »» Wait a minute, I'm pretty sure Master C'baoth left the galaxy with the Outbound Flight and was never heard from again. But I could be mistaken, it was a couple of years before the start of the Clone Wars and I didn't have much contact with the Order at the time. Or maybe this C'baoth could be a descendant? The Jedi were not the monks everyone thought they were.

    »» Still... I have the proverbial bad feeling about this.

    »» Now, since Anakin-Junior has just fallen into one of his 'hibernation trances', I'll take the time to recount General Calrissian's crazy plan to help the Princess hide from the Empire. Since our trip to Bimmisaari we have all become convinced that the Empire is dead-set in kidnapping Princess Leia although we still have no idea why. I'd venture to say that they're planning on locking her in a tower somewhere and let her hair grow until her rescuer can climb it. Oh wait... that was a holo I watched a month ago. I really need to defragment my memory banks again.

    »» So, here it is » CRAZY PLAN OUTLINE: to aid the Solos, General Calrissian suggested that the Princess hide somewhere while someone else took her place in the Falcon and with Captain Solo. That someone would have to be able to copy the Princess' speech patterns in order to pose as her in eventual comm calls to Coruscant, so that someone would have to be C-3PO. In the meantime, the Princess would go into hiding somewhere secret. I do not have the information as to what other places were suggested or why (at the time this discussion was taking place, I was helping the Falcon recover from our last skirmish as per stated in the previous entry) but they ended up settling on Kashyyyk. I do know this was Chewbacca’s idea, since when we joined the sentients, he was still assuring Captain Solo that his fellow Wookiees were deserving of his trust and that the Princess would be quite safe among them, despite having to swing around from trees several kilometers high. Fortunately, the Princess does not suffer from vertigo. As for General Calrissian, the plan has him tagging along with Captain Solo in the Falcon. The excuses those two concoct just to hang out together...I can imagine what kind of trouble they'll be getting into.

    »» After agreeing that this was a good idea, the General and the Captain spent the entire day programming C-3PO. Needless to say, my counterpart was not happy about this plan and he made his objections very clear to all. Of course, it did him no good since they went ahead with their plan anyway.

    »» CRAZY PLAN ANALISYS: I don't think they'll be able to actually fool the Empire with these shenanigans. All they have to do is land and the disguise will be forfeit. Maybe if they dressed up Threepio with a white gown and buns on his head, they could get away with it. But then they'd have to disguise the General to look like Chewbacca or people will wonder where the Wookiee went. I'd love to record that. I might do a holo-montage of Threepio and the General in disguise while Master Luke is slee... I mean in his hibernation trance.

    »» Oh look! He's snoring again.

    Yeah, Artoo, I don't get it either. :confused: I'd love to record it as well, though!
