    Well, I hope you guys have read your Star Wars books, 'cause I have some trivia that's REALLY trivial, if you know what I mean! Besides, if you don't own some West End Games books, then you'll learn a lot! Trust me, my collection is growing! The facts are taken from all over the Unoficial Encyclopedia, and from my books.


    First question:


    True or false:


    Voren Na'al, a New Republic historian, created the "A long, long time ago, in a galaxy far, far away", and the textcrawl to "A New Hope," as part of a theory that the adventures of the Rebel Alliance and the New Republic would someday become a story?

    false, didn't the whills write down the story therefore they came up with the textcrawl and long long time ago?

    Actually, true, and it CAN be false, but Voren Na'al, after Thrawn's death, thought that the epic saga of the Skywalkers and the Civil War would become a story, so he pondered that it would start with the familiar textcrawl.


    Second question:



    What system's star is about to go nova, over a year and a half after the Battle of Yavin?

    Well, it's been a while, so I'll just give the answer: The Demophon system. It's a shame, but still many people evacuated before the entire area was obliterated. The Rebels and the Imperials had a brief campaign over there.

    Now, onto another:


    The supreme leader of the Yuuzhan Vong people is...

    A. Tsavong Lah

    B. Klarvyn Tok

    C. Yomin Carr

    D. Malik Carr

    E. Shimmra


    Well, let's see...

    That first question was weird. I don't like that aspect of the Star Wars saga, making it all feel like it really happened. Stating that a real Star Wars character made the craw. Thats just messed up.

    and the answer to the current question is either A or B. I think its A.

    Ooh! I know! It's Tsavong Lah!

    My turn.

    Who was the commander of the Endor garrison that delivered Luke (and his weapon) to Vader?

    Is it

    Major Lesim? (Galaxy Guide 6)

    or

    Commander Igar? (SWCCG)

    What? No its not. I know the commander of the Vong is either A or B. It has to be. And A is what I think it is.

    EDIT:

    Got this from the online Star Wars encyclopedia:

    Shimrra
    this Yuuzhan Vong was the Supreme Overlord during the initial invasion of the known galaxy. (HT)

    Tsavong Lah
    this Yuuzhan Vong was the Warmaster in command of the forces led by Shedao Shai which invaded the galaxy. (DTR).

    Hmm, guess I was wrong.

    True.

    Well, I know he at least has a relative that plays for Jabba in RotJ. Don't know if its his brother or if he is older. But I'm going with true.
