    Do you have a question about Star Wars that you want to know the answer to? The chances are that someone in here will :)

    With our resident Star Wars expert Stuey hanging around, don't be afraid to enquire about even the most trivial things.

    Simply post your question, and it shall be answered. Not many threads in BIFF actually lead to Star Wars, so make the most of it [face_laugh]

    OK hotshots, answer these questions 3 :p

    1. Who, apart from Harrison Ford, was considered for the Han Solo role?
    2. What species is Plo Koon & what is his homeworld?
    3. What was taken out of AOTC because of the Sept. 11th attack?

    Good luck, gentlemen :p

    Wookies wear no clouths due to large amounts of furr, but in all the films there is no oviouse explanation to how they mate, this is partly because we never see a female, which would explain alot in this matter.

    so my question is thus...

    where are chewies happy sacks?

    Okay Guys, here we go with a serious question, I don't really expect a serious answer but please give it your best shot!! :)

    In Empire, during the carbon freezing sequence, why does Vader prevent Fett shooting Chewbacca during his struggle with the Stormtroopers?

    It was obviously out of character and both Leia and Fett give Vader a quizacle look.

    He had no further use for Chewie, Han or Leia as Luke was already on his way.

    I have asked both Dave Prowse and Jeremy Bulloch if they could remember any direction received from Kershner during the filming, both answered in the negative.

    Possibly he didn't want the equipment damaged or given that we now have the back ground of the prequels, maybe he didn't want to destroy his former protocol droid! :)

    Theorie's gentlemen?

    one i've just come up with (so it may not be all that together) for that clanger is this

    Maybe Vader would have to pay Fett for any 'work' he does, so if Fett kills something on Vader's time, Vader is going to have to pay for it and the imperials are too tight to pay for protection for the super laser's technician on the DS so they don't want to pay for unecessary wookie death

    could work :D

    I think that firstly, Vader needs them for bate. Secondly, he was probably savouring the moment. Thirdly, it's unnecessary for them to be killed....

    Although it's very much like the Dr.Evil leaving Austin Powers to escape from an over-elaborate death [face_laugh]

    Also, Stormtroopers are totally inept and can't aim for Imperial Toffee :D

    But Luke was already on his way.

    Secondly, he was probably savouring the moment.

    Could be that, not really his style. :)

    Thirdly, it's unnecessary for them to be killed....

    Needa, Ozzel, poor Tusken Raiders!.....when has it been necessary for Vader to kill? :)

    Sorry Luke, I think Stuey has hit the nail on the head, ............Vader is a tight arse!! :lol

    Why didn't Vader allow Fett to shoot? I think its a good question and one to be honest that I have been puzzling for an answer over for sometime.

    Personally, I wonder if it has something to do with the environment. I mean being in a carbon freezing chamber and then shooting off laser guns probably wouldn't be a good idea! Plus didn't Vader still need Chewie, Leia et al as bait for Luke?

    Maybe Vader even considered interrogating them all to learn secrets about the Alliance or maybe he just had a soft spot for the Wookie :)

    why do you keep saying that about troopers luke? we're talking about Boba Fett here, not troopers or haven't you seen ESB? or are you just trying to turn this into a Stormtroopers are Jango clones thread
