    The winning team is the Big Apple Squadron with 9/10 points. The Minnesota's Wild and RMFFSWD came close in a tie with 2 wrong. Congratz to the Big Apple Squadron, I'll start your reward hopefully tonight. Remember to use the official colors and not to abuse the VIP ability, if a mod catches you with different colors than the predetermined colors all team members will be stripped of the VIP prize.

    Here are the answers:

    1.What is Marg Sabl?

    A space-combat closure maneuver.

    2. What Star Wars Author also wrote for the X-files?

    Kevin J. Anderson

    3. What was the name of the Captain that Darth Vader force choked to death in ANH? Also what else was he known for?

    His name was Captain Antilles and he was also known for being Threepio and Artoo's last Master before meeting Luke.

    4. When Leia finishes the briefing for evacuation of Hoth give the name and rank of the officer that gives the order for the pilots to get to their ships?

    Two

    8. What are the markings on Han Solo's pant legs?

    9. What language is the Jawa language based from and what gives it? distainct Jawa sound?

    It is based on the Zulu language and the recordings were sped up to raise the pitch and accelerate the flow of the words. The dialogue was also recorded in the rocky and desert locale of Vasquez Rocks to get an echo effect as the voices bounced off the rocks to make the Jawas sound more natural.

    10. Who is the first character in the Trilogy to say "May the Force be with you."?

    General Jan Dodonna


    The new game will start 2 weeks from yesterday.

    You didn't say how detailed we had to be. We said it was sped up. We did give a correct answer that was not wrong. :)

    But in order to get the "distinct sound" they needed to record the dialogue in the desert to achieve the echo effect then play it at double speed.

    Wasn't this a Cheers episode? Where Major Bren Derlin ... uhhhh ... I mean Cliff Claven was on Jeopardy and Final Jeopardy was a listing of three people (I think they signed the Treaty of Versailles) and he answered "Who are three people who have never been in my living room?" which was technically not a wrong answer but not correct either... :D
