Yay for the GOUT! While fairly useless in its own right, it provided some unique raw materials for fan preservations:
- A frame reference that fans could agree on for all of their audio and video projects so that things could work together better. Imagine if Harmy's DeEd used the DC for video, but hairy_hen decided to sync his audio to the JSC, etc.
- The only home video release of the 1977 Star Wars crawl/flyover (making the choice of 93 audio more ridiculous).
- Lots of language and subtitle options (in various unique global releases) in an easily rippable format. Without this, our preservations wouldn't have the global accessibility they currently enjoy.
And finally, it provided the final push for some fans (like me) to get off their butts and start doing something to save Star Wars for posterity, because it was finally crystal clear that Lucasfilm wasn't going to do it.
