I feel like if the lines are timed a little differently, we won’t even need an ice-breaker. I may try to play around with it tonight. (My hard drive just had to be reformatted, and I lost all of my previous projects (yay); but now I should be back in the game!) I guess it depends on Jannah’s reactions during the scene. If she has a slight smile, or a half-laugh to herself, then I think we need an ice-breaker; if she remains kind of tense and aloof throughout the confrontation, it would be better without.
I’m looking forward to seeing it! I agree that simple is better.
Also, sympathy for the hard drive failure. I’ve had that happen before and it’s the worst.
If we do want a 3PO line, I say keep it simple. Everyone’s eying each other suspiciously, and then 3PO just chimes in with “Hello! I am C-3PO - Human/cyborg relations!” [Awkward pause]
Honestly, this is pretty damn good. Easy to implement and made me chuckle out loud reading it.
EDIT: Playing off of Hal’s idea, it would work if it played out like:
Jannah: Are you Resistance?
POE: That depends.
C-3PO: What resistance?
I’m just not sure…do we have 3PO audio to support that? Like jarbear said, I think we can get away with recording a new translation, because his voice is supposed to sound different during that part anyway. I’d be worried about recording new lines in his normal voice though.
I think Chase Adams already recorded a new 3PO line for Ascendant, unless I’m remembering wrong, and I’ve never been able to pick which one it is when I’ve watched it. So if he’s willing to record another line that might be a possibility. But just having 3PO introduce himself might be perfect anyway.
