    Heh, please do :p


    Piggy vs Juno

    Juno was one of the best Imperial pilots before her defection. She was the youngest student accepted to the Academy, graduating at the top with high honors. After flying over one hundred combat missions (in TIEs, I might add) she quickly worked her way up the ranks, eventually becoming handpicked to lead Darth Vader's personal Black Squadron. He later entrusts her with piloting the SA around the galaxy on his missions. Vader isn't one to hand-pick a poor pilot to lead his personal squadron (we all know how he feels about incompetence).

    I'll admit that Juno doesnt have much "screen-time experience", but she does have a sizeable amount of implied experience. Youngest person ever accepted to the academy (besting Fel, Solo, etc in that regard), with over 100 combat missions in TIEs for the Empire, gaining command of one of the most elite squadrons in the Imperial Navy. As a woman in the Empire.

    Piggy Porkins though, isn't going to be difficult for her to defeat. A few missions with the early Rebels then Yavin... Nothing that particularly stands out, that indicates he was anything more than mediocre.

    I don't think that this would be hard for Juno to win.

    I don't have anything productive to argue so I'll leave you with this.

    [face_laugh]:_|[face_laugh]

    I'm pretty sure you don't mean that sentence the way you typed it, but it sounds like you're putting her on the same level as Fel and Vader.

    you know, i'm really getting tired of people making up the new "youngest person into the imperial academy and graduated with top honors" bull. that was pash cracken. no wait, now it's juno eclipse, some nobody who we only see in two books, who didn't even exist before they decided to screw things up again. i'm curtailing this before it turns into a rant, but bah!

    one question on this though: have we even seen her fly outside of a freighter? at all? because until we do as far as i'm concerned this is just another carth situation. the best pilot we've never seen do jack.

    Care to explain how come?

    Sey: No, I am not putting her around Vader/Fel. Though, based on her reputation I believe she should be around Kasan Moor's level, who was one of the better Imperial pilots. However, due to Lucas Arts' apparent plans to have her exist only as a "love-interest" character, I doubt we will get anything that validates my opinion.

    Yeah, I'm pretty weary of reputation-only pilots. Though Carth is the archetype, it seems to be plagueing a lot of Imperial pilots--Declann is mostly rep, Barvel is mostly rep, Imperial Ace is all rep, and we know my unbridled contempt for him. Porkins is mostly rep too, though, so in a contest of rep versus rep, the traitorous harlot seems to have more.

    So I'll agree, but Eclipse.

    This isn't a random trump; these are Rogue Squadron wingmates who flew in the battle's of Mon Cal, Ralltiir, Tavias, and Coruscant in particular, as well as being involved with Admiral Stazi's campaign against the Sith empire in general. Lumiya is good, but flying two on one is really damn hard. Its not easy to bust a trump, especially one that is cohesive.

    i think we know a lot more about lumiya as a pilot than these two though. lumiya graduated with top honors from the coruscanti piloting school, then went on to do the same thing at carida. she's the only person who had done that at the time. then she managed to infiltrate rogue squadron, and was good enough that no one suspected a thing. and this was when they had the rogue reputation pretty thoroughly. later, during the nagai/tof conflict she bewildered opponents flying by herself. based on what she's done i would imagine she could handle two pilots without that much difficulty. especially two pilots for whom we know so little about, one of whom even dies in the cockpit.

    far as i can tell this is again a actually seen vs rep situation. and really, lumiya's rep is at least as good as theirs from what i can see.

    We've actually seen my guys pilot in battles! Specifically the ones I listed, but we know also the campaign they are in.And your point about when she infiltrated Rogue Squadron is bunk. She did it when, per Wedge's words in Rogue Squadron, that the pilots weren't, on average, as good as the reformed Rogue Squadron.
