    No? I bet Sal forgot all about it, so I'll keep it going by asking one.

    What did Ralph McQuarrie do for Star Wars?

    Brakis was one of Lukes students. He was discovered at an early age to be force sensitive by the Imperials and was taken from his mother. Instead of being trained to be a force adept he was used as a spy. He was sent to the Jedi Praxeum to do just that but began to turn from the darkness until Luke showed him his darkside like Yoda did in the cave. Brakis fled afterwards and was recurited by Kueller another of Skywalkers failures. Kueller planed to overthrow the Republic and Brakis helped him by using a droid factory to plant bombs in droids. The plan was defused by Luke and Leia and Brakis went into seclusion. Years later he headed the Dark Acadamy for the Second Imperium. After his battle with the Praxeum and realizing he served not the Emporer but a fake hologram he killed to IRGs and the third running the holo blew up the station killing both.

    To follow that one what is Kuellers real name?

    His real name is...Dolph! I really had to laugh at that when I read it a few years back. I bet he changed it to Kueller (sounds like "killer", kinda) 'cause kids were picking on him at school. Nya Nya Nya Nya Nya Nya, Do-olph! I bet all those kids "disappeared" later.

    Now, what is the full name of Thrawn? (It's not Mr. Thrawn.)

    Well, besides the obvious title of Grand Admiral Thrawn, his real name is Mitth'raw'nuruodo.

    Yes, Captain, it is. How artistic of you to know that. Ask away, but know that I have already anticipated your strategy.

    Dan...psst...
    The rule on this thread is that you have to answer the question, then you get to ask the next one.


    Okay, so use Dan's (Bigdaddypayne) as the bonus question.

    Here's mine:

    What is the name/model number of the droid on the Republic AT-TE walker and what is its function? (It wasn't seen in the movie.)

    What are the names of the two droids who treat Luke's Wampa injuries on Hoth?

    Who is MD-6? I thought it was 2-1B and FX-7.
    On with your questions anyway. But if you get a chance, explain MD-6.

    1) How did the Sand People get to be called Tusken Raiders?

    Fort Tusken was an outpost colonists to Tatooine tried to establish, northwest of Mos Eisley. The settlers inadvertently constructed their fort on land sacred to the Sand People. The resulting attack by the Sand People was brutal! The name Tusken Raider, along with their fearsome reputation was the outcome of that bloody day.

    Fort Tusken is one of the areas you can visit on Tatooine in Star Wars Galaxies game coming out this spring. I would only venture there at your own risk!

    2) How did Grand Admiral Thrawn get the title Grand Admiral?

    Thrawn was a Vice-Admiral when he helped to eliminate the traitorous Grand Admiral Zaarin. Thrawn then ascened to that rank himself.


    My question:

    Keeping with the Thrawn theme, What is Thrawn's full name and what race is he?

    Ooh! Ooh!

    I know this one!

    Thrawn's real name is Mitth'raw'nuruodo, and his species is Chiss.

    Now two of my own:

    1) How was IG-88 finally destroyed for good?

    2) What was the name of Prince Xizor's personal starfighter?

    1) How was IG-88 finally destroyed for good? Okay since there were actually four IG-88's I will explain each one's demise.
    First off let me explain that they were denoted by letter: IG-88A, IG-88B, IG-88C and IG-88D.

    IG-88A was the last remaining of the four and downloaded his consciousness into the computer core of the second Death Star. We don't know what happened to his "body" but his consciousness was destroyed when the Rebels, Wedge Antilles and Lando Calrissian made their respective fateful shots at the Battle of Endor and blew up the Second Death Star.
    IG-88B is the one that we see in the movie and was the most notable of them for his bounty hunting skills, it was destroyed by Boba Fett who had gotten the jump on it before getting to Cloud City in ESB. (Yes, you can see the remains of it during the scene where Chewie finds the parts of 3PO in the smelting room with the Ugnaughts
    IG-88C was destroyed when he chased Fett over Tatooine. Fett Raced towards the planets surface with IG-88C in following closely. Fett put on the "brakes" a manuver that should have killed him. IG-88 did not anticipate this and could not pull out of the manuver and slammed into the the planet.
    IG-88D was destroyed by Dash Rendar on ORD Mantell.

    2) What was the name of Prince Xizor's personal starfighter? Virago

    Okay, my question.

    This is really more than just a question but here goes:

    Please give account of what happens in the book, "Splinter of the Mind's Eye."

    I would like a nice synopsis that is at least 8 sentences long. Many people have either not heard of this book or not read it so, I will give someone the chance to give the "Cliff Notes" on it here. This should be a semi-comprehensive answer.

    *cracks knuckles*
    Okay, one trivia question that I can answer!

    Luke and Leia are sent as special envoys to meet up with a planet that is possibly wanting to join up with the Rebellion. On the way there, they crash onto a planet that is controlled by the Empire.

    When landing, Luke and Leia have to 'camo' themselves as locals, leading to a funny scene where Leia has to act as Luke's servant. They meet up with a Jedi-wannabe, who has found a piece of a mysterious crystal that would enhance one's force powers.

    When leaving their meeting with the mysterious woman, they end up in a brawl outside a restraunt and are found to be without identification. The local Lt. dreams of advancement, and reports to the Empire that he has found 'two chief Rebels, Skywalker and Organa'. Vader is sent to the planet.

    Meanwhile, Luke and Leia have teamed up with two Yuzzims who, along with the Jedi-wannabe, escape. The Jedi-wannabe helps them escape with the promise to find the rest of the crystal.

    They come across the temple that has the crystal within, but Vader finds them first, and seriously wounds Luke and Leia. Luke gets ahold of the Crystal, and a red light engulfs him, somehow allowing him to fight Vader.

    Then, the Spirit of Obi-wan helps him fight Vader, until the Sith walks off, defeated. Luke uses the Crystal to heal himself and Leia, and the Jedi-wannabe finally admits her wannabe status.

    *whew!*

    is that good?

    Okay!
    Question:
    What is the first name of the Jedi Prince?

    In ESB, what is the name of the man who plays the imperial officer who escorts Leia & Chewie after Han is in Carbonite?

    The Jedi Prince is Ken, annoying grandson of palpatine himself. The Imp was played by Fett-ish actor Jeremy Bulloch.

    (Continuing with Sal's directive to keep it out of the realm of the much-too-difficult):

    Name the Directors of each of the Star Wars films. Which of them are still alive?
