    Hi Angell! It is so good to see a new face!
    I totally agree with you on that whole Imperial uniform question...I have had the same question about lightsaber blades :p I don't know the answer right off the top of my head but let me look into it for you, or someone else who might know can look into...or answer...yeah.
    Hey, don't forget to sign in on the top thread (FF intro thread thingy)! We'd love to hear a little more about you :)

    Welcome Angell, as for the answer to your question. You might want to check with Handyman, the City Rep in Provo. He's made many of the costumes and might know the reasons for the different colors.

    I also hope to see you at events to come.

    Greetings Angell,

    Welcome! In answer to your question about the color of Imperial Officer uniforms, here is a brief summary...

    White tunic: Imperial Navy Grand Admiral

    Olive-grey tunic: Naval/Army Officers

    Black tunic: Non-commissioned Subofficers, guards, Stormtrooper Captains

    Black/Grey jumpsuit: Pilots, technicians

    You can find all kinds of interesting information like this on TFN's [link=http://www.theforce.net/swtc]Star Wars Technical Commentaries[/link]. Specific information on uniforms, both Imperial and Rebel can be found on the [link=http://www.theforce.net/swtc/insignia/]Military Insignia pages[/link]. The SWTC is the most in-depth source you'll find on the subject. Everything you could possibly want to know is there.

    Hope this helps,

    this is me speculating

    White -- Grand Admiral
    Olive -- Regional Moff?
    Black -- Commander / Captian

    ... maybe

    disclamer: this is not cannon.

    --- sig ---
    As long as the answer is right, who cares if the question is wrong?

    Thank you Mike, I knew if someone had the information on it, you would.

    It's also always fun to see what Derek has in his signature each day.



    edit:dern spelling.

    It's not really a new face it's about 22 years old.

    Ok, Ondiv, I've got your lightsaber answer.

    Blue Blade=Jedi Guardian, they focus on combat training and mastery of the lightsaber

    Green=Jedi Consular, focus less on physical combat and more on mental disciplines.

    Yellow=Jedi Sentinel, ferrets out deciet and injustice, bringing it to light. they balance physical and mental disciplines.

    Mace's purple blade? I have no idea. My guess is it has special designation since he is the senior most member of the Jedi Council....but it's just a guess.

    Mace's blade is purple because Samuel Jackson asked for it that way, and George Lucas, being the drunken ewok he is, gave it to him.

    Wow, Angell, you know a lot about the Jedi. We could use a player like you at the EU. Our Jedi forum is pretty dead. :/

    I'm kind of a jedi guy. I guess you could say i'm Jedi_Angell's Jedi apprentice. Though he is reletively new to the way's of the force he know's more than I do, thus if I have a Star Wars question I usually refer to him.

    If you ever play Jedi Academy, the saber colers they have are blue, green, yellow, orange, purple and red. But i'm guessing they just added orange for variety.

    If you watch the special features for Episode II you can see when Sam Jackson actually asked Lukas if he could have a purple saber. That's why he had it but if you wan't a reason within the Star Wars world, any theory would just be speculation unless Lukas himself comes up with a reason for it. Til then, one reason is as good as another.
