I would like to point out that literally 2 days prior to me engaging in speculation on destruction outcome of a Star Destroyer crashing into a planet vs an asteroid on this thread, I was making fun of two nerds debating a theoretical dogfight between an F16 and an X-Wing tie fighter in the Mando thread.

These are all from https://bottleneckgallery.com/ by the way. I am eagerly awaiting the arrival of my TROS/ESB artwork that I showed here last month.

Don't tell me that I can't take everything on wookiepedia as the God's honest truth. Especially watching Clone Wars this summer I've spent a lot of time reading through it.

Although annoyingly people essentially recreate almost best by beat retellings of episodes in the bio of characters and such.

I'd think the DS, for all It's exterior size, is something like 70-80% open spaces... I'd imagine the density is not that significant relative to size

Imagine a playground ball dropped from 5 ft versus a bowling ball dropped from 5 feet

How much of the playground ball is packed with munitions though?

I trust a wiki that is curated by Star Wars fans to be more accurate than anything else.

Star Wars Finally Explains the Dagobah Cave

Quote:

The recently-published novel From a Certain Point of View: The Empire Strikes Back retells the film's events from the perspective of various characters. One of the chapters is told from the point of view of the vergence that lives inside the Cave of Evil. The formless entity has been there for "a millennium," encountering a number of Force users over that time. Through these interactions, the vergence learned concepts such as time, thoughts, memories, and fear. That combination allows the entity to sense the mind of whoever steps into the cave, allowing it to project their deepest fears. Yoda, interestingly, appears to be the only one to visit the cave multiple times.

Wait, did the cave need an explanation? Is anything just "the Force" anymore?!

This.

Just leave it as a dark side nexus... it just is. Done.

by the way, is the rest of From a Certain Point of View going to be like General Rieekan, random rebel trooper in a trench, TIE bomber pilot looking for the Falcon, Imperial ensign cleaning up choked out admirals and dealing with bounty hunter scum, and the ever famous Wilrow Hood?

Wait are the sequels still canon?

Actually this is all going to end up with Lucas rerereleasing 1-6 as the "Canon Lucas Edition", having recut, refilmed, and re-viz everything into Darth Jar Jar and his takeover.

Watching the crew fight inquisitors at the end of S2 of Rebels, I'm really bothered by the physics of them using their light sabers as helicopters. I've got no problem with magic Laser swords but that seems to be a bridge too far.

I wanna say the force is involved, but I honestly don't remember if the inquisitors use the force.

I also remember rolling my eyes a little at that.

inquisitors are force users. I always attributed it to a force skill.

I just finished Queen's Peril today, the second book focusing exclusively on Padme and her handmaidens. This one is about Padme's election as queen up through the events of Episode 1. Queen's Shadow is about Padme's transition from Queen to Senator.

These are not great literature or anything, but the amount of depth the author was able to weave into what was pretty much a throwaway one-note concept in Episode 1 is really impressive. And it's very cool, and makes so much sense in a fictional espionage way.

A lot of really fun fantasy world building things in there. Like Naboo queens run for the office and rule anonymously under a pseudonym and with obscured faces (hence Amidala). The different jobs and specialties of the handmaidens and how they were used as security. How does Padme deal with being a senator when as a monarch she essentially overthrew the chancellor in favor of a politician from her homeworld.

Sabe (Padme's primary body double) in particular really comes into her own as a character, which I know has been carried into some recent comics that I'm not up to speed on.

They're short books (technically junior novels I think) so worth your while if you need something for your commute or whatever.

Anthony Daniels met reporters in Hollywood yesterday to promo the Holiday Special which comes out tomorrow on Disney +.

One reporter asked him if he could name one positive thing about working on the original Star Wars Holiday Special to which he said:

Anyone else watch it? Found it silly and enjoyable myself, less so the Life Day stuff at the Falcon and much more so Rey jumping through the different eras.

Harrison Ford is so damn good and he knows it....in his late years it's as if it's a giant inside joke that only he's in on, and knows that in his interviews he can come off as any type of person and nobody will fully know if he's being genuinely annoyed or irritated, or if it's all a joke and I love it!!

I definitely need the book this came from, along with the 1977-1983 edition. The previews at the respective links below are awesome. $200 each is pretty damn steep, though...
