    Nope. I don't intend to argue that.

    Actually I'm kinda surprised that Kyp didn't put his vote in when he posted it.

    Hey, I remember this. Isn't this where we do matches and stuff?

    Remaining Judges, I do want to produce an argument. Please allow me a bit of time to do so.

    lol

    When I'm ready to judge right away, there's an argument. When I totally miss out on judging it's a clear match. :p

    Maybe this isn't as close a match as Typo thinks. [face_whistling]

    Those are certainly some lucky numbers...

    The end result may still be in doubt. [face_thinking]

    *sigh*

    I'd very much like to argue this, but I've been pretty sick the last few days. I'll go ahead and release the judges to judge as they will, however, I'd like to remind them to consider the known knowns, and the unknown knowns, and the unknown unknowns, so to speak. Plourr's known experience is a bit more impressive than Biggs' known experience. What we have for Biggs is a lot of fond memories, and the Darklighter run of Empire. What we have for Plourr is the entire run of the X-wing comic series.

    Plourr is fairly impressive in the X-Wing Omnibus. I don't know if she has as much natural talent as Biggs, but she has shown more of her talent than Biggs has shown of his.

    Given equivalent opportunities to hone their skills, I have little doubt Biggs would have grown into a pilot capable of BOOMing Plourr out of the sky. But, only one got that opportunity.

    Umm she's not particularly more impressive in the X-wing comics than any of the other folks (actually, Elscol Loro pulls neatest piloting feat out of any of them in Battle Ground: Tatooine), and I don't see any rushing out to draft Dllr Nep...


    Biggs was trained by Baron Fel, better than Hobbie during that time, the only pilot to keep up with Luke Skywalker on Tatooine, ace in one mission, so good that Wedge described it like he could read minds...he's more than good enough to make up experience gap because he is definitely more skilled. And the experience gap is slight because Plourr was not a pilot for that long. A few months before revealing her role as princess, then some sporadic duty for like...a year. Tops. Compared to Biggs extensive training (which Plourr lacks) and his time with the Rebellion, even that gap is practically non-existent.

    Wow, what NYJ said was so full of false, it's funny.

    That said, let's move on.

    I think it's obvious who the winner is. When does #13 start? :p

    We need to discuss that once this one is over. So as soon as the judges vote we can open this up for a discussion.

    If anyone thinks it's necessary for me to give an argument, just say the words. Otherwise, I'm not going to give a long essay on what I see as a pretty obvious choice in my favor.
