Hey people, I tried to post part of this yesterday, but the forums wouldn't let me.

Anyway, I'm not a Hyperspace member, so what I'll tell you is only from the headings on the home page.

Firstly, I remember several people saying in the "What would make you walk out of Episode 3" thread that they would be disappointed if Anakin's flying skills Obi-Wan talks about in Episode 4 weren't shown in the film.

Well, yesterday, one of the headings at the home page said "The greatest starpilot in the galaxy". The little picture showed part of a spaceship against a green screen... so that could be it... Anakin finally showing his flying skills. Spoilers:

Maybe in the space battle at the beginning of the movie... I think that's the last battle of the Clone Wars.

Then, the second cool thing that appeared at the site is the drawing in the side bar. There's Palpatine with a half-built Vader (without the helmet, but with the breathing mask) perhaps it's a scene from the movie... who knows?

It's not Vader. It's a Grand Moff.

i thought "grand" and "moff" were only titles?

ex: Grand Moff Tarkin

Yes, another_trooper's right, it just a title. I don't remember this Grand Moff's name.

sure looks like vader to me... and unless you can prove otherwise i'm lead to believe it's him.

Yeah, looks like a partially armored Vader to me too.

And if my knowledge is right, StarWars.com doesn't consider all the supplement books and stories part of their "universe," so any grand moffs outside of the movies - wouldn't they be considered 'unofficial' and consequently, not be put or referred to on the star wars site?

That's what I thought krkode, but lately they've been borrowing scenes from comics for the site; here's the link that says it's not Vader:

There are two phtographs, where Vader and this Grand Moff are together.

Oh, BTW, it's Grand Moff Trachta.

Speaking of which, does anyone have the hyperspace pass - is it worth it? I was thinking of getting it...not sure though. Let me know!

Grand Moff Trachta

Not Grand Moff.

Weird that they use that for the official stuff...

It depends on your point of view. I personnally don't have it 'cause I don't want to pay for it but I've heard a lot.

You get exclusive news, images, sometimes live webcam stuff directly from the set and I think you can chat with some of the actors, crew-members I think although this I'm not sure.

If you can't wait 1 year and a half then sure get it.

Off the record, anyone know who Tarkin's first name is? As long as I can remember, I only knew him as both Governor Tarkin, or Grand Moff Tarkin. I always wanted to know.

I believe Tarkin's first name is Willhuff.
