    Now that wasn't very nice, you could have said hay, say, or fray.

    I would still like to know the answere to BoB's question "The big question is what happened to Lukes Xwing that was on Cloud City."

    The Empire I assue took over the city, I guess the Rebels didn't really care about it and wrote it off.

    Boy, ya gotta be thinking, if you're a Rebel accountant, that this Luke kid is becomming a real liability. He runs off whenever he wants, leaves his toys laying around, and blows up stuff. If the rebellion was in a recession, and they brought in some corporate hatchetmen, Luke would be the first one to go.

    For the record, I'm tired. I've been up all night, trring to finish a project. And besides, this is my darn post! I can write whatever I want. Thank you.

    Luke's a whiner, and not the best Jedi out there, so why just let him leave? If he gets his hand chopped off, let his hand be chopped off!

    Anyway, I got a question.
    When Yoda and Obi-Wan say that y'know, Luke and Leia are the only hope, can't they sense that there are others out there? What about Mara and all the people in the EU books?
    It doesn't have continuity...

    And waay back about Jar-Jar and the Wuipi, I don't think that it's he can understand Huttese or anything, he just knows that the guy is talking about paying for that lizard.

    My take on this:
    Yoda realized that the only way to win was to convert Vader away from the dark-side or kill both Vader and the Emperor. The only ones who had the necessary attachment to turn Vader were Luke and Leia. So no others would be able to redeem him. All the others also were not strong enough to confront Vader. I am going to assume that here for sake of continuity that Kyp had almost as much potential as Luke and Luke merely misread him. (Anakin's force sensitivity was absolutely unknown remember) if you take this one veiw, you see that all others were not even close to Vader's level of the force. Without out something close to parity, which Luke and Leia had, being the children of Anakin, they would not have stood any chance. The best they could do is delay.

    Ok, here is something that is bothering me. Why are they called apartments when they are all together? :D

    On a more serious note, Why are they called refried beans? Are they fried twice, to be refried, it has to be fried once before right?

    Why on the Sony Classics release of music for Episodes 4, 5, and 6, at the end of the Cantina band's song there is blaster fire and then a coin setteling on the bar. And on the same track why do the blasters go "boing, boing"?

    Why didn't Han and Luke free any of the other prisoners on the Death Star?

    All those other cells couldn't have been empty.

    Dude! As Leia pointed out, they couldn't even get themselves out of there, much less a whole flock of prisoners. Besides, some of them might have been honest to goodness thugs. We don't know that ALL of them were political prisoners.

    At least, that's MHO.

    Actually (going back to the prisoner-releasing issue), given that the Death Star was new and all, what other prisoners would they have yet? The Tantive IV's surviving crew?

    Ah, but the Sneering Guy In Charge of cell block AA-23 wasn't surprised that a prisoner was being tranferred in... just that he hadn't been notified. So there must have been other prisoners... why not free them under the "enemy of my enemy is my friend" principle?

    I have no answer to this. :[face_sigh]:

    On a related note, were all of the still-in-their-cells prisoners considered martyrs to the Rebel cause when the Death Star blew up?

    According to Darksaber, Wookiee slaves built the Death Star. It's conceivable that some of the workforce could still have been onboard.

    "Don't forget Leia's pronunciation of Tarkin. I swear it sounds like she's saying Tuck. I've listened to it over and over and only the closed captioning convinces me she is saying Tarkin. "

    I always assumed she was talking with a "dignified" voice - she sounds kind of British when she says it.
