Nah, she'll recognize it as a weakness.
Exactly! She'll receive a Force vision (she's already had Force visions, after all) about it becoming a terrible weapon, and recognize that it must be stopped, but only if she's there to show the way. She'll suggest the exhaust port, but only she will know that it's a weakness. She'd do more if she could, but she's got a ton of other people to go help.
Though now that I think about it, Ahsoka suggesting that it's a glaring weakness, and Tarkin arrogantly ignoring her suggestions would be just as good.
She'll find the Death Star plans and successfully deliver them to Bail Organa.
And then Darth Maul will steal them back.
That's brilliant because it opens up so many other storytelling possibilities. If the Death Star plans are known about and continuously sought after at this early part of the timeline, just think of all the opportunities to have people capture the Death Star plans in twenty year gap between the trilogies. Twenty whole years of unknown Death Star plan stories, just waiting to be told... I'm salivating at the thought.
It could be like that old cartoon gag, where everyone's running back and forth, fighting over the prize, the prize passing from one hand to the other, like a baton in a relay race.
Just replace Tweety with the Death Star plans.
Love it. In the inevitable part where everyone meets up in the middle of the hallway, you have Kyle Katarn gun them down and take the plans. We all know he's the one who really stole the plans, after all.
I hope Filoni isn't reading any of this...
I believe some planetary placements in sectors were retained.
Anchoron in the Seswenna Sector comes to mind, and I'm vaguely recalling Pantolomin may still be in the sector it was given in Rebellion.
@jasonfry could tell us.
@TrakNar, I would like to commission a Fry Signal piece.
That's not the Fry I'm looking for. And you're not TrakNar.
But otherwise, I love it.
Ha. Who could resist that?
Our rule for Rebellion, as with anything else, was first do no harm. But the game board bore so little relation to established geography that most of it had to be discarded.
I can't reconstruct exactly what we did, but I found a printout of the Rebellion map that I'd scrawled on in pen. I put check marks on Modell and Corellian, probably to orient the map. Churba and Farfin got OKs. Everything else got NOs. Well, I can't read what the heck that says by Xappyh. Anyway, suspect we oriented the map by the two sectors that were in the right place, compared the Rebellion placements against current geography and saved what still worked. Which wasn't much.
This was why I used the Death Star in that game. Not as a tool of tyranny -- oh no -- but to correct clearly aberrant planetary locations! In the case of Bilbringi, I did it a favor -- not only was it incorrectly placed in the "Farfin" Sector, but it looked like a normal planet!
Please tell me you spared Agrilat...
I always liked blowing up the planets except those that were actually destroyed, ala Carida.
Once, the Rebels had managed to capture Coruscant and I was losing badly so I sent in the Death Star to destroy Coruscant.
....what? I was young!
I seem to remember destroying Carida once specifically because it was canon.
On Empire at War if I was playing as the Imperials I would get the Death Star and transform the Outer Rim worlds into a giant asteroid field around the Core Worlds, as I couldn't be bothered maintaining bases on worlds I'd captured from the Rebels.
So, do I still need to draw the Fry Signal or what?
Fine... I'll add it to my to-do list...
Well, the one worked, but it can't hurt to have a backup.
just seen the last episode... wow! wow! wow! i think it's my favorite episode ever. the republic prison, the clones, the memorial, the escape scene, everything screamed Empire. and that last bit straight off the fugitive... awesome. the Anakin and Ahsoka dialogue at the end was great.
and one thing that kept popping up in my mind as i watched Ahsoka escape from the prison was that if we switched Anakin with Vader we would have a Purge tv series. That and the blasters NOT set to stun
EDIT: here's the memorial
