    (Good job on the Greedo answers - BTW, I read that the greedo in the cut scene was the ANH Greedo's father.)

    The cantina aliens in question are Duros, and Doros and Neimodians come from the same ancestral species, though they have evolved a little apart from each other. We see Neimodians in the prequels, Gunray, etc.

    That came about because Lucas originally meant the neimoidians to look like living battle droids - the species that the droids were based on. But, that meant another computer generated species, and time and money were running out on TPM. So Lucas made a quick decision to change the appearance of the Neimoidians, and hastily chose the Duro mask as the basis of their heads. Of course, the Geonosians became the species the battle droids were based on. Compare a battle droid head with the head of a geonosian.

    New question:

    In the book "The Courtship of Princess Leia", which character sings a song extolling the virtues of Han Solo?

    C-3PO sings the song to Leia with I think something over 300 verses in it and she stops him after 1 or 2.


    If I'm correct heres mine

    Is Han Solo really the King of Corellia?

    No. But Han is desended from a con man who CLAIMED to be the King of Corellia. As I am answering this quick quick on my way out the door, too lazy to look up the particulars, lets continue the question with what the actually line of descent of Han is and how that con man claimed to be heir to the throne. . .

    Wow. that really killed the trivia game, didn't it.

    Han's great grandfather was Korol Solo, pretender to the Corellian Throne who was later hanged for his crimes.

    Han's grandfather was Denn Solo (I'm assumming he was Korol's son since Corellians seem to stick with last names from the paternial line). His grandmother was Tira Gama Solo. During a pirate raid, they were seperated. Denn taking their infant son, Tira taking their infant daughter. Denn & the son, presumablly Han's father, were never heard of again.


    So, here's another question, an easy one to get things rolling again :)

    What was the name of the Gungan city that Jar Jar took Qui & Obi to?

    Otah Gunga.

    Keeping with a Gungan theme...

    How many Reps (not including Boss Nass) were there on the rep council.

    Bonus: Name at least one of them.

    Sorry, GC, some how I PM'd you this answer first.

    I think there are 4 Reps. I know one is named Rep Been and maybe another is named Rep Teers. Am I right?

    Ok, where was Ahmed Best discovered by Robin Gurland?

    Appearing in "Stomp", a San Francisco musical. She liked the way Best moved, and thought he'd be good for at least the physical part of Jar Jar.

    New question:

    Someone close to Lucas made up the name "Gungan." Who was that person?

    Bonus toughie: The name "Bink" (from which Jar Jar Binks may have come) appears very early in SW history. What was the the full name of the character (from the early script drafts) who had the first name of Bink?

    The first part (Gungan) came from his son of course.

    I'd have to look up the bonus one though.

    I believe I might have asked this before but here goes...


    This is a multi-part question that you must get every part right in order to be correct. wait for my confirmation before posting your question. (It's easy just do your research on starwars.com)

    In meters, how long is a standard Imperial II Class Satr Destroyer from bow to stern? (part 1)

    On average how many troops (typically Stormtroopers) does and ImpStar Deuce (That's it's nickname) carry? (part 2)

    How long could an ImpStar Deuce stay out in space without replenishing? (This is referred to as "consumables") (part three)

    And lastly, an ImpStar Deuce is a "capitol ship". What makes it a capitol ship and one major hint here, it is not it's overall size?

    *grins* Sal, ya' stumped us all. Answer your own question and ask another one (keeping in mind that many of us do not have the technical data on Imperial warships memorized :D )

    Alrighty, here are the answers...

    This is a multi-part question that you must get every part right in order to be correct. wait for my confirmation before posting your question. (It's easy just do your research on starwars.com)

    In meters, how long is a standard Imperial II Class Star Destroyer from bow to stern? (part 1)

    ANSWER: 1.6 Kilometers

    On average how many troops (typically Stormtroopers) does and ImpStar Deuce (That's it's nickname) carry? (part 2)

    ANSWER: 35,000 troopers of varying array, but mostly Stormtroopers.

    How long could an ImpStar Deuce stay out in space without replenishing? (This is referred to as "consumables") (part 3)

    ANSWER: 3 years

    And lastly, an ImpStar Deuce is a "capitol ship". What makes it a capitol ship and one major hint here, it is not it's overall size?

    ANSWER: it's the power output. The Imperial class star destroyer has a multitude of weapons and engines
    NOTE: Here's the strange part. A ship called the Skipray Blastboat is considered a capitol class ship as well even though it is little more in size than a typical fighter. Again it is due to the power output of that little ship that bristles with weapons and engines.

    Okay, with that, I'll give an relatively easy question...

    What is Admiral Ackbar's association with Grand Moff Tarkin? (Give a brief history-a paragraph or two will suffice)

    If your going by the movies (and you should since they are "canon"), I'd guess 65. I don't know the NJO "yet" but I just got all of the books and will be reading them over the next few months.

    If however you go by the previous knowledge that he was 115 as of SW (this was stated in magazine's and trading cards and so on back in the '70's), then he would be around 140. Again just guesses though.

    I am going by startting with anakin buiding him and saying episode 1 was the "birth" and ending with the last njo book. TPM takes place 32 years before ANH The Unifying force(last NJO book) takes place 30 years after ANH making 3PO about 62 years old. Your question Sal.

    Well, I didn't get it right. I was just in the ballpark, so ask another question Josh.

    (Just being fair to others.)
