    I thought it was to communicate with the farm machinery.

    What Owen really needed was a droid who understood the binary language of moisture vaporators, but Beru reminded him to make sure it also spoke Bocce.

    I'm re-reading the Empire and Rebellion comics and I have a question. What's the point of "The Short Happy Life of Roons Sewell"? Oh look it's Orson Welles and he has a Rosebud battle-cry. Why? We could've got a Dodonna backstory, instead we find out he just got the job when we meet him. Why? BoShek only got one issue, and Roons Sewell gets two? Why?

    Okay, maybe that was more than "a" question.

    IDK I quite liked that two parter. A Dodonna backstory would be great, but I think having a much less important character's influence be shown has the point. This guy did not really change the fate of the galaxy, he will not be in history books. It shows how much smaller and intimate the Alliance is at this point. I prefer the Biggs arc it interrupted though

    Does the Force Awakens novelization offer something extra compared with the movie?

    Not really, IMO. I thought it was one of the more disappointing novelizations in that regard.

    I think the Revenge of the Sith novelization spoiled us in that regard.

    in what year BBY was the TIE/gt introduced and how long after that did the Empire transition to the actual TIE/sa Bomber?

    also in Empire Strikes Back when it shows the TIE Bombers attempting to flush out the Millennium Falcon...are those TIE/gt, TIE/fc, or just standard TIE/ln flying escort? Ive watched the vid but cant make it out...

    For some reason they decided to have TIEs be in somewhat common use in like 18 BBY in Ahsoka. Though V-wings are still around in Tarkin so i guess they where still more dominant than TIEs.

    I am certain the bombers in ESB that you are talking about are just the standard TIE model. retroactively I guess they would be GTs.

    BTW it might be best to ask this in the Fleet Junkie thread

    Is the Rogue One novelization worth reading?

    I'm reading it right now and yeah I'd definitely say it's worth it. More than just adapting the movie it expands on everyone's characterisations and their actions. It also sprinkles in new dialogue here and there that fleshes out the story.

    That's exactly what I want out of a novelization! Thanks!

    If you haven't read SW: Catalyst it might be worth reading that first. It's a prequel to Rogue One.

    Here you go. It's normally not far from page 1 in this forum.

    Beside the pantorans, talz and chiss, what space faring species do we know of that seems to be cold resistant/like colder enviorment?

    Whiphids are one species that comes to mind.

    There are no TIE/gts in Canon, which means there are none in ESB, so anything that looks like a standard TIE is a TIE/ln.

    The first known appearance of TIE/sa bombers in Legends is at the Battle of Mustafar, which Wookieepedia says took place somewhere between 18 BBY and 12 BBY, and then most of their appearances are post-Yavin. So it's safe to assume that in Legends, the TIE/gts were introduced early and weren't completely phased out until around Yavin.

    In Canon, I believe there are TIE bombers in a New Dawn, which takes place in 11 BBY.

    In the Atlas do it seems like Agamar lay just where Braxant Run and Celanon Spur hyperlanes meet, and I was wondering why is it not a major trade world?

    Maybe it is - which is how the stereotype of the "hick Agamarian" spread throughout the galaxy - because it was one of the most-visited Outer Rim worlds?
