    So how do we square that with the idea (which I guess was established later) that hyperspace trips often take weeks?

    Also, how many planets can Tarkin really blow up before this starts to incite mass revolt against the Empire? And what if the rebel leaders in question are from Core worlds like Corellia or Coruscant? Going on a mass-murdering superlaser rampage doesn't make sense for Tarkin, so if anything I think the smart move for the rebels is to stay hidden.

    They might take weeks, but that's for slow cargo haulers, not warships, and the Death Star is a warship.

    The other question is: how long would it take for the Death Star to extrapolate the Falcon's hyperspace path and make course corrections for their own hyperspace jump? It might take days for both ships to reach their destination, but only a few hours' difference between their arrivals.

    Guys, I'm going to read the book From a Certain Point of View, is that book Canon or is it a fanfic?

    It’s a collection of canon stories from the perspective of background characters in a new hope.There is one story I can think of though that is more of a joke that is titled “whills”

    Surely whether the stories are good is a more important question than 'are they "canon"'?

    Before or after the bisection? ;)

    In the latter case, I imagine he probably has a colostomy bag somewhere that has to be changed at regular intervals. Like real-life survivors of injuries that leave them with intestines unable to function normally.

    Now that I think about it I’ve never seen Maul even eat.I know he had tea once but that was about it.

    Why would you need a guy up there with a handheld scanner though? Why not just a radar antennae at the top of the mast? Not only does the guard have to suffer from boredom and fatigue, but he wouldn't even be able to aim that scanner as well as a machine or droid could.

    Are Taun-Tauns indigenous to Hoth? If so, how can they not be able to survive the cold?

    It'd be fun if the Rebels brought Tauntauns to Hoth from some other, less extremely inhospitable iceplanet.

    Even if they were indigenous to Hoth, there could be warmer zones and were transported or they could have instincts to go into a cave when it's evening.

    Even polar bears seek warmth at night.

    Han was basically making his Tauntaun go on a forced run across the landscape with zero break.The poor thing more or less died of both the cold and exhaustion.

    They did say it would die before the first marker. Not sure how far that is, but made it sound like the they couldn't handle the cold well at all.

    A question that has been on my mind for as long as I can remember: At the end of TESB, it appears that Lando is taking the falcon to go find Han, however I think ROTJ takes place about three years later. My question is why did it take them so friggin long to rescue Han if they knew where he was all along?

    You want to read Shadows of the Empire in its various forms (novel, comic) as it tells the story of what happened between the two films. It's Legends now but still a good read. There was also a video game but I haven't played that..

    The movie was made 3 years later, but, at least in-universe, the timeframe is much shorter - less than a year.

    Shadows of the Empire is good, but prior to it, the Marvel SW Comics published in between TESB and ROTJ also had an interesting take on events. Some of these events later got referenced in other Legends media.

    Why did this forum change from the Original Trilogy to the Classic Trilogy?

    Does the choice of words matter? As to your direct question, I dont remember that change happening so I need to do research. @anakinfansince1983 @cubman987 @LAJ_FETT

    Me either. I assume it was the choice of the moderating team at the time.
