    Hmmmm.... Given that Hawk is at schoolies week, and he is our team captain, we are of course in a bit of trouble at the moment.
    At the moment now it seems that I have become the temporary VICFF team leader as I'll be the only one able to submit the answers.

    Too much responsibility! :_| :p

    It's 10:40 PM Eastern, 7:40 PM board time, and only three teams have responded. Here are the results:

    Big Apple Squadron: 8/10
    Victoria FanForce: 3/10
    Rochester Rebels: 4/10


    Here are the questions and answers:

    Due to it being such a popular tourist destination, what were the hours of filming limited to at Caserta Palace? (1:00 pm - 1:00 am... I also accepted "midday - midnight")

    When Luke and Leia are having dinner on Circarpous IV and are almost discovered by Imperials, what does Luke do to keep up their cover? (he slaps Leia and tells the Imperial officer she is his servant)

    Who designed Mara Jade's wedding gown? What species was she? (Jari'kyn, twilek)

    After refusing to become Luke Skywalker's apprentice, who did Kyle Katarn hone his Force skills with? (Mara Jade)

    How many energy cells does it take to power a force pike? (2 cells)

    What was Palpatine's excuse for dissolving the Senate? (Princess Leia's "disappearance")

    Who defected from the Imperial Academy after Alderaan was destroyed? Who did he later marry? (Tycho Celchu, Winter)

    How many nostrils does a tauntaun have? What are the different functions of each? (4 nostrils, larger pair brings oxygen into the bloodstream during physical exertion, smaller pair is for breathing while sleeping)

    What did the modelmakers from ANH put on the Millennium Falcon model as a joke? (A "Champion" auto parts sticker; the fuzzy dice were part of the set, not on the model ;) )

    During filming of the rainy duel with Jango Fett, Trisha Biggar found that Obi-wan's cloak became too heavy to wear when waterlogged. How did she solve this problem? (She had the fabric re-created at one-quarter the original weight.)

    The overall standings thus far:

    Big Apple Squadron 18/20
    Rochester Rebels 9/20
    FanForce Victoria 8/20
    Young Jedi Niagara 7/20
    Steel City 7/20
    Arch Vader Society 6/20
    Cockney Rebels 6/20
    Spanish Inquisition 5/20

    Do people want to go through the sham of completing the game, waiting the two weeks? Does anyone really believe that we won't be able to answer only TWO questions from the next set of 10?

    Concede now.
    Give us the colors.
    Save some time.
    Resistance is futile.
    Prepare to be assimilated.

    Whoops, sorry... still on Trek Season 5... ;)

    I would like to point out, for the record, that the Holomap Room was at the base of the Jedi Temple Spire (the central spire), NOT the Jedi Council Spire.

    Not that it matters, but still... ;)

    From the Star Wars Fact File (a magazine publication)

    "The Jedi High Council's Tower had one key difference from the others - the holomap. Dominating the waiting area below the main chamber was a huge holographic map of the galaxy, showing trouble spots, the locations of wandering Jedi and any other information required by the High Council."

    But like you said...doesn't matter anyway :)
