    you dont see the ranking in the movies because they are not that kind of ranking.is not like youngling, padawan, knight, master. the lightsaber skill ranking were merely a way to say who is more skilled than who and things like that

    :confused: Did george Lucas tell Nick Gillard about the characters lightsaber skills and power levels and Nick Gillard made the Lightsaber rankings to help him with the jedi moves?:confused:

    Did you see my reply, Icestar63? It's just a few posts above this one. Of course I could be wrong, but when you ask the same question several times without referencing previous comments, it creates the impression you didn't see the previous comments at all.

    Icestar63 posted:
    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Did George Lucas make up the levels or did Nick Gillard make up the levels.
    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------


    It's something Nick Gillard came up with to give himself a frame of reference when designing the lightsaber duels, based on comments Lucas made (but not meant to be a strict interpretation of Lucas' comments) - I think.

    I am sorry I was not clear in my post, :_| In my post I meant to say that does nick gillards rankins count I saw your post but i still did not get it but now I get it because when you said comments I did not get I was just asking did George tell Nick Gillard Himself or is he using George Lucas's comments from interviews I am sorry if I was not clear.

    I'd start a thread about this, but I'm 99% sure it would be locked and redirected here[face_whistling] , so:

    here it is instead, Am I the only one notices that the separatists never actually have a chance to leave Utapau, for Mustafar, yet they just kind of appear there anyway?

    I mean, we see them in the command sphere of the TF ship, landed on Utapau... then obiwan *drops* in, next thing we know the sepies are still there, the Clonetroopers land, Star Destroyers park in orbit, and by the time we have order 66, the TF command ship is *still* grounded, the Republic is still blockading the planet, and shooting everything that tries to take off, they obviously couldn't have taken off, or gone anywhere since the start of the battle, yet palpatine already sent Vader to Mustafar, where we see... the same Sepratist leaders who were stopped from leaving Utapau? How did that happen? I mean seriously, how did they get out during the invasion? Without getting stopped/shot at, by the Republic fleet/army? Not to mention, how did they get there so fast?

    Basically: Can anyone figure out how they got from here:

    Without being stopped by the armada in orbit, or the army on the surface, or their grounded command sphere? or for that matter? the passage of time?

    They were in a TF ship of Utapau? I thought that was just an area in the sinkhole.

    The Mustafarian Sentries and Lord Vader

    Did that one think something was up, he seemed pissed or something when Vader walked by?

    Did he reconize Anakin Skywalker since his hood was down?

    They probably took another ship, Grievous' shuttle maybe?

    Super_Battle_Droid, I think that the sentry probably looked up because he saw a figure, not necessarily because it was Darth Vader - I mean, his planet has become host to all sorts of species, and he probably just thought, "Oh good. Another alien here to take part in that secret thing in that special building over there. Back to work I guess..." Or something.

    There probably was enough time to take a shuttle and fly off. The Republic army had to be very cautious and therefore probably waited, instead of blasting one ship leaving the planet. If they had done that, they would have blown their cover. Instead they sneaked up to the 10th level and attacked in the right moment to distract Grievous.

    Once Cody gave the signal up to the Republic Fleet in orbit all hell broke loose and the battle of Utapau started.

    The Separatists had enough time to fly away with a freighter or shuttle before the Republic arrived (or deployed)

    Sorry, if this has already been discussed. This is my first time on this forum.

    In the opening star battle of ROTS, I noticed an insignia on one of the clone pilot's chest armour.

    It looked to be the same insignia that Boba Fett has in his chest armour.

    What does the insignia mean and why does Boba Fett have it on his armour?

    Did Boba Fett just use pieced together clone armour and the insignia just happen to be on the armour or does it go deeper that that?

    WHY is Palpatine so EVIL? HOW is he so POWERFUL? WHAT species is he? WHEN was he born? WHERE did he come from?

    It is indeed.
    Probably about as deep as "see if they notice this...." on behalf of ILM.

    What happened to all the space traffic above Coruscant in Revenge Of The Sith? I mean, in The Phantom Menace and Attack Of The Clones there was so much traffic above the planet! in episode 3 we saw nothing - except the Tantive IV?
    Was there a curfew due to the Clone War or did Mr Lucas forget to add in a bit of space traffic?

    Comments please...

    Looks about the same to me, you need to watch a little closer. There was traffic just as much.

    Well I haven't checked yet but i'm guessing it's when the Empire was formed in the senate. As changes had begun to take place.
