    I think it's highly likely that some form of the empire will be present in the ST.

    Given that, we can expect some form of stormtrooper presence as well. We all know that the OT stormtroopers had terrible aim, they never seemed to hit anything! Except for that one time Leia got hit in the arm, but that was her own fault.

    How will the ST troopers fare? Will JJ show them as the elite forces they're meant to be?? Or just more cannon fodder for our heroes???

    This is the most important topic on the boards. There must be 36 other threads dedicated to this topic made right now!

    They could conquer the galaxy if they had decent calibration.

    In fairness, they did pretty well when they faced unnamed opponents, especially the rebel troopers on the Tantive in the beginning of ANH. After that point, though, when we see them miss it's usually when they're shooting at named heroes (Han, Luke, Leia, Chewie, etc.) who kind of have to survive per the plot. For better or worse, it's even referred to as "the stormtrooper effect".

    Well, this topic certainly goes to make my planned "Will the Sand People Still Travel in Single File to Hide Their Numbers" thread seem ridiculously unnecessary...

    the real question is will they upgrade their armor so Ewok arrows and foam rocks no longer strike them dead or knock them unconcious.

    That was due to the gravity on the forest moon of endor. It's much different to say, earth. Hopefully they explain this in depth in EP VII

    I'm just going to go ahead and lock this derailment train. But if you are bored there is always the social thread. Where you can get to know your fellow forumites. Who knows you might like it.
