I'm sure that most people would wonder what these 3 characters have in common. 1. They each died in their respective episode. 2. Their actions could have changed the course of the universe in a major way. 3. Each is a throw-away character developed to bring false hope to an audience while producing a smoke screen for the major characters. Darth Maul's major contribution was killing Qui-Gon which helped GL justify Obi-wan teaching Anakin. Where his action is in common with Red Leader and Coleman Trebor is that he would have ran Anakin over and killed him on Tatooine had Qui-Gon not told him to "duck." Red Leader got the first shot off on DS1. Had his shot found the mark Luke would not have used the Force to destroy the DS, and DV wouldn't have pursued him in the remaining episodes. Coleman Trebor could have ended the battle on Geonosis immediately had he killed Count Dooku, which probably would have saved alot of Jedi in the process. Comments and Discussion?
