    I'd thought I'd bring this thread to 300 with question for our insiders.

    After Dooku escapes from Yoda, is his ship pursued by Jedi starfighters. Or does he make a clean getaway?

    Well, I'm not an Insider (as you well know :D ) but I'm pretty sure that there's nothing in the Script AFAIK.

    The cover of the artwork of aotc book shows something rather large burning in the background. Droid control ship got knocked upside it's dome piece i think.


    Geoneosin has mental problems and keeps trying to pick a fight with me because i reported him as being a troll.

    I don't want a "pice" of you geoneosin.



    Anyways, the big ship burning might not be a Trade Federation ship actually. (well it could be). It might be another factions ship.

    Here's an excerpt from [link=http://cgi.theforce.net/theforce/tfn.cgi?storyID=8766]this[/link] spy report from December 2000.

    One picture has these enormous sphere-like ships that are coming out of the ground through hangars that are built into the ground. The sphere-like ships look like a cross between the Death Star, with the control tower of the Star Destroyer built on top of it. There are what looks to be dozens of these sphere ships coming out of these hangars, dotting the landscape. There are other ships nearby, but the sphere ships dwarf them. And there is what seems to be people (though I'm guessing battledroids) all in alignment, on the surface. Millions of them, all in this military alignment. This set of concept artwork is referred to as the "landing area."

    The general consensus amongst those in the know is that those sphere-like ships belong to various factions within the confederacy (as hinted at by HookLineAndSinker ).

    Does anyone know what is the nature and purpose of these ships? They're probably not cargo freighters considering they lack the "arm" like storage structures (used as hangars also) seen on the Trade Federation ships in TPM. Are they battle ships with millitary capabilities? Are we meant to view them as pre-cursors to the "Death Star"? Do they contain droid-armies? Damnit, I need answers people and I need 'em fast!

    We have no idea how early those concept drawings were drawn. You must remember what that picture is refered to as: "Concept Artwork".

    It may well have been scraped early on. Which means we are not 100% sure they are in the movie. But if they are, they would have to be Cargo Freighters or Battleships of some sort. Although if they're battle ships they are not very well designed [face_plain].

    Anyway the fight at Geonosis should be awsome. The arena with all the jedi would be a site to see.

    the giant sphere ships are filled to the T with battledroids. they are basically droid storage ships. the entire droid armies are carried around in those things.

    The ships are carrying droid armies? Thats pretty cool.

    Where are they heading for when they leave Geonosis? To enforce the Confederacy's rule in certain systems?
