    Too bad I missed The Crystal Star. My entry would have been: "Han has a beard, Luke is red-headed and Threepio is purple."

    I mean, that honestly tells you everything you need to know.

    And Leia dyes her hair green.
    IIRC, she also dyes Chewbacca, but I can't remember what...

    Yeah, I was trying to remember what they did to Chewie. I'd forgotten about the green hair on Leia though.

    I haven't read this book in a while, so I'm not entirely sure my memory of this part is accurate (and still looking on Wookieepedia to confirm or deny this), so if its wrong, ignore this one.

    In which it is revealed that that two meter thermal exhaust port that the entire Rebel plan of attack depended on was unnecessary and wouldn't have been that large if the architect had been paying more attention or cared more (since for her it was either that or the soon to be destroyed prison planet), adding yet another wrinkle to the 1001 tales of everything required for Luke to make that shot.

    Either that or some joke about how a summary is pointless because TCW will soon somehow invalidate this book at the rate they're going through Reaves' novels and that the Death Star is not a Duros, but someone else will probably phrase it better.

    Much as with Leia in the end, it gave me a terrible headache.

    Any entry that references Duros will be automatically disqualified and its author shot into the sun.

    The book that has more to do with character melodrama than it does the actual Death Star.

    I can think of at least one book where Duros in the entry would be appropriate.

    The book which saw the destruction of Despayre, not Duros.

    This entry was brought to you by Cad Bane especially for @CooperTFN

    Relive Episode IV Death Star scenes verbatim and the moral quandary of the guy who pulls that lever down (along with every other person living aboard the station) in... uh... let's just call it Death Star!

    The pulpy goodness and insanity of the 80s, condensed into one trilogy of pure, unadulterated awesomeness.

    Might try to do a better one later.

    Three books starring Lando Calrissian, that is all that needs to be said, go read them now.

    Lando and his servile sidekick baby spaceship have adventures through outerspace and inner mind, meeting evil snail sorcerers, tricky rabbits, space whales who use guano and gems to sculpt, and sentient robots from another galaxy, all while cruising around in a ship Lando won in a sabbac game he would have rather lost.

    Thanks to an unhealthy dose of Lando and sabacc, Rokur Gepta's life is getting worse all the time!

    Everyone's favorite ol' smoothie smokes, gambles, and has a strange old time with his more than meets the eye droid.

    I think this excerpt from Flamewind tells you everything you need to know:

    "Outside, a braid of raspberry red, lemon yellow, and orange orange twisted through the heavens, across a constellation locals called the Silly Rabbit."
