I like how “Governor Moff Tarkin” treats “Moff” as Tarkin’s first name.

“That Darth Vader, man. Sure does love eating Jedi.”

And Obi-Wan and Darth Vader are listed under “teams”. Because as we all know, they were best friends in that movie. 😉

My preferred Skywalker Saga experience:
I II III IV V VI VII VIII IX

I wonder what the Star Wars franchise would have became if the idea of Vader being Luke’s father never happened.

I watched Star Wars with my family the other night and was reminded of something: as Luke, Leia and Han are celebrating and are interrupted by the recovery of an extremely battle-scarred R2 as well as a distressed C-3PO, obviously they stop screaming but - pretty much - Luke just says “He’ll be alright” and they move on VERY quickly. I don’t see much room for doing it another way myself, but I feel like 3PO could have used a bit of emotional support there! It almost spoiled the ending for me this time round.

I suppose it’s the curse of happy endings that many inevitably feel contrived or forced. Still my favourite Star Wars film though.

Wookie was probably more common than Wookiee everywhere back then.

And in the time of greatest despair, there shall come a savior, and he shall be known as the Son of the Suns.

I wonder how many Rebel pilots followed Biggs’ plan of attending the imperial academy and then defecting to the alliance? Sounds like Luke was planning on doing the same, is it a common? Surely the empire had measures in place to mitigate this?

I bet you have

I wonder what the original implied incident behind Vader saying, “you should not have come back,” was.

I’m just a simple man trying to make my way in the universe.

Star Wars has 3 eras:The eras are 1977-1983(pre Expanded Universe), (1983-2014) expanded universe or (2014- now) Disney bought version. Each are valid.

Based on the dialogue of that scene, the academy is in some ways a separate entity from the actual Imperial army, given Biggs says that one becomes eligible for being drafted after completing the academy course.

The radio drama also has Biggs saying that a friend of his from the academy was suspected for Rebel sympathies and died in interrogation. Sounds like at least in Legends they made mention of some pretty severe measures in place to curb desertion, although our known canon defectors (Hobbie, Biggs, Wedge, and Bodhi) also seem to have had a tough time.

I’m just here because I’m driving tonight.
