Hello All. Welcome to the EU trivia thread.

Some very SIMPLE rules

1. Ask Star Wars EU questions only. If not strictly EU(ie. about a book/comic/game), it MUST be related to the EU via the movies. Any non trivia posts will be deleted...so dont make 'em

2. Try and supply answer with some info, such as what book, comic or game it was in, or reference source eg. sw.com

let me give an example

Q : What colour is Grand Admiral Thrawn's Skin ???
A : Blue... I first came across Thrawn in Tim Zahns Heir to the Empire.... cool character :)

3. ONE ACTIVE QUESTION AT A TIMEIf you are reasonably confident of your answer, have answered all question components and provided references, you may ask a question. If details of your answer are incorrect, this will be clarified and may affect whether you are assigned points.

therefore, if are only speculating you CANNOT ask a question
eg. Hmm.. i think you are referring to Grand Admiral Thrawn, but im not sure and cant remember where I read it...

If you dont feel like asking a question or have gone blank, just say PASS and anyone else can ask a question

4. STRICTLY NO SPAMMING.....

5. !!NEW!! A TALLY will be kept of posters and their number of correct answers. This tally will be posted every 50th post or so. The leader will be given a (crappy) EU related award :D

I'll start :p


Q. Who are the Noghri and what is their home planet AND have the noghri appeared in any of the SW games ???

CapNColostomy

A.
They are an alien species that were duped into following Darth Vader nearly to the point of worship after he detroyed and poisoned much of their homeworld, Honoghr. I'm not sure if they've appeared in a game or not. They're my favorite EU alien species though. My source is the T. Zahn trilogy that they first appear in.

My turn. Here's an easy one.
Q.
What was the name of Grand Admiral Thrawns Star Destroyer, and what class was it?

Wraith 8
12-27-2004, 12:21 AM
A: Chimaera
Imperial-II class Star Destroyer commanded by Captain Pellaeon. It was used as Grand Admiral Thrawn's flagship, after Thrawn returned from the Unknown Regions to take control of the Empire some five years after the Battle of Endor.

I read about thrawn in the unofficial episode 7, 8 and 9. forgot the titles tho. i have the Dutch titles :p

Q: Whats was the name of Wraith 8? and what was so special about his face?

CapN - the Noghri's game appearance was in Jedi Academy. Although Thrawn/Pellaeon appeared in the old "Tie Fighter" game, I dont believe the noghri featured in it.

Firstly. Wraith squadron was a squadron created by Wedge Antilles for covert missions. It consisted of a unique mix of pilots with highly specialised skills in different areas. The Wraith Pilots featured in the "X-Wing" Novel series written by Aaron Allston.

Wraith 8 of course describes the 8th designated pilot of this squadron.

my copy of 'X-Wing : Solo Command'(towards the end of the series) tells me Wraith 8 was the Gamorrean Voort "Piggy" saBinring.....

HOWEVER, up until this point Wraith 8 was actually Garik "Face" Loran, so I assume this is whom you are referring :)

Face had been a child actor, used in Imperial propaganda holos. He received a facial scar after he was kidnapped by ex. Rebel Alliance extremists. The scar was actually inflicted by his Imperial rescuers :(

check out this cool page for full bio, and even a pic of Face, from a Japanese NJO cover.

Q. What/who is Lusankya ??


mtfbwya

Jan Gaarni
12-27-2004, 07:15 AM
The Lusankya was a converted Executor-Class Super Star Destroyer. Rumors had the Lusankya to be a prison planet before the truth was found that it was a ship, buried beneath the surface of Coruscant. Used as an enourmous prison complex, the Lusankya held many important "guests", one being Jan Dodonna, the general who briefed the rebel pilots that destroyed the first Death Star. The Lusankya was under the Imperial Intelligence's command.



Question: What other word is the Imperial Intelligence known under, why, and what organisation is the Imperial Intelligence part of?


*****
Sidenote: Another game the Noghri take part in is Rebellion (Supremacy) which came out before Jedi Academy.

hmm... tough one. can answer only one part of your question-

what organisation is the Imperial Intelligence part of?

uh... the Empire? :D



and whoa, astrotoy, you're a mod?! haha, good to hear. congratulations! thanks for putting an end to that hot chick thread, by the way. it was nice to have founded such a legacy, but that thread was way overdue it's termination.

Jan Gaarni
12-28-2004, 08:50 AM
Hmmm, maybe it was too hard.

The first and last should be easy, atleast with alittle googeling, but the why could be too hard, so I'll drop that one. :)

Uh, well, yeah, that's a given, but what organization/division/bureau, whatever, is the Imperial Intelligence subordinated under (officially)?

A: Another superweapon which was created to be able to destroy an entire solar system by asplodin' the sun. And those crazy bastards over at the Maw Installation created it as well as almost every superweapon in the SW universe.


Q: What are the names of the ships Boba Fett used and owned for bounty hunting? Must name all.

A: If memory serves: Slave I, Slave II, and Slave IV are mentioned. There may have been a Slave III, but I don't know where it is mentioned. Slave I and II are basically the same, just upgraded. Slave IV is the ship that was different.

Q: What was Tahiri's "Yuuzhan Vong name?"

Astrotoy7
12-28-2004, 12:38 PM
A:
COMPNOR and The Ubiqtorate by any chance?

Well done Cap ;) COMPNOR, for some ridiculous reason, was in my brain as an alliance organisation, so i didnt look it up :( Bugger !

A: Riina. of course from the latter part of the NJO.




Q: Who is Mirax Terrik, her famous family members, and the name of her ship ??

Jan Gaarni
12-28-2004, 01:40 PM
Actually, the correct answer is Ubiqtorate.

The Imperial Intelligence comrpises of 4 different divisions:

* Ubiqtorate:
the division that oversees all operations of the Imperial Intelligence at the highest level. Members of the Ubiqtorate are anonymous to all other operatives and members in the lower divisions.
Due to this secrecy and fear it creates, the Imperial Intelligence came to be know as just Ubiqtorate on many worlds.

* Internal Organization Bureau:
a division of Imperial Intelligence charged with protecting the overall Imperial Intelligence organization from any internal or external threats. It is known as IntOrg for short.

* Analysis Bureau:
the division of the Imperial Intelligence which is responsible for gathering data from other divisions and searching for patterns or other relevant information. It employs some of the best decryption and encryption experts in the galaxy.

* Bureau of Operations:
a divison of Imperial Intelligence which handles many of the surveillance, infiltration, counterintelligence, and assassination missions for the Empire.

The Imperial Intelligence is a military intelligence agency. Its counterpart intelligence organization is the civillian ISB (Imperial Security Bureau), created by the political party COMPNOR.

So COMPNOR has nothing to do with the Imperial Intelligence really. :)

Perhaps I should choose some easier questions next time, though I didn't think it would be this hard.

Oi ! Where your answer and question soldier ! :p

No, keep 'em comin Jan, I plugged in imperial organisations into the CUSWE and there were so many, I didnt know where to start. The entry for the ubiqtorate was very short. Can you please state your references ? :)

I dont see this as a weakness in my unstoppable EU knowledge at all[/false pride] :D

anyways, CapN got the answer pretty much :D

with the questions I ask tho, I'm trying to make them informative about some particular series or character so someone not as huge on the EU might read and perhaps want to check that book out[/false hope] :p

I do not know the answer to that one. :(
I just thought I should clear the answer up. :)

You can find some of the info on several online sites, some are for roleplaying purposes, others for info, but largely true. You can find the naming of the divisions in the "A Guide to the Star Wars Universe" by Bill Slavicsek, aswell as the original info in the "Dark Forces Rising Sourcebook" and "Imperial Sourcebook".

I found it strange too that Cuswe had so little info under Imperial Intelligence aswell, but it has all divisions listed none the less. You just have to know what they are called, which isn't really helping if all you can go by is the words "Imperial Intelligence". :p

OK ! Back to the questions at hand !

Q: Who is Mirax Terrik, her famous family members, and the name of her ship ??

mtfbwya

swphreak

Q: Who is Mirax Terrik, her famous family members, and the name of her ship ?

Let's visit Phreak's memory banks once again.

A: Mirax Terrik is the daughter of famous smuggler Booster Terrik (you remember his famous red Star Destroyer, the Errant Venture). After CorSec officer Hal Horn (Corran's father) caught up with Booster and sent him to Kessel, Mirax took over his operations. Her ship is the Pulsar Skate. Although Wedge isn't direct family, he is considered a part of the Terrik family since his parents' death. Mirax eventually married Corran Horn, and they had two children.

I think that covers it.

Here's a pic to illustrate phreak - [/Astro Mirax fan] :p

Q: Name the Republic Commando squad that was sent to Qiilura. For a bonus, state their designations.

Wrongo, hickboy. Slave I (http://web.syr.edu/~srcasano/s1tech.gif) was a Kuat Systems Engineering Firespray-class attack ship that was really quite unique in its own right, as evidenced by movie appearances and in the EU. Slave II was not the same as Slave I. When Slave I was impounded after Boba's fall to the Sarlacc, Boba had to find a replacement ship until he got Slave I back. Slave II (http://web.syr.edu/~srcasano/s2tech.gif) is a MandalMotors Pursuer Enforcement Ship and looks absolutely nothing like Slave I. They are armed to the teeth and have sophisticated sensor suite packages, but Slave II lacks the stealth capabilities of Slave I, making it an inferior vessel. So saying Slave I and Slave II are basically the same is erroneous.

swphreak
12-29-2004, 07:54 PM
Alright then, I got them mixed up. I know there are 2 ships basically the same, and 1 that's different.

I haven't read the Fett books or the Empire's End comics which the different Slave whatever appears in forever.

Q. What is a so unique about a "Phantom" Class Tie Fighter, and where did they appear in EU.... ???

Jan Gaarni
12-30-2004, 05:34 AM
A: The Phantom Tie is unique as it is the smallest ship ever built (atleast by the Empire or any known ships to the Star Wars Universe) that was equiped with a cloaking device that not only jammed sensors, but made the ship disappear visually aswell.

It's first appearance was in the Rebel Assault game I believe.



Q: Who brought the star maps over Republic space into the hands of the Sith shortly before the end of the Sith Empire's era 5000 years BBY, and what were they're original mission?

Gav & Jori Daragon IIRC. This is from the "Golden Age of the Sith" comics of course and does take place some 5000 BBY. Gav and Jori charted hyperspace routes for smuggler and freight haulers, to try pay of the many debts they owed to Aarba the Hutt. Unfortunately for them, they crash landed on Korriban, a Sith stronghold and got mixed up in events that became known as "The Great Hyperspace Wars", which featured sith lord Naga Sadow.

For more info on the "Golden Age of the Sith" Series Click here !! (http://www.darkhorse.com/search/search.php?sstring=Star+Wars%3A+Tales+of+the+Jedi+-+The+Golden+Age+of+the+Sith&nsstring=redemption+fall+war+dark+nadd&viewmode=gallery)

[nb. Please do NOT confuse this with the "Stark Hyperspace War" which occurred about 10 years before the Battle of Naboo. This particular story is featured in a comic of the same name]

tsk tsk ! Lucky we're not keeping points Wraith as you would get some negative points there :p I think you had the star forge mixed up with what Jan was asking... :D

I am leaving your question open as the current active question :D

Q: What little creature did Ton Phanan take from Storini that made "Grinder" faint?

mtfbwya

Rogue Nine
12-30-2004, 09:32 PM
A. You're talking about the Storini Glass Prowler, two of which were taken by Ton and Grinder off Storini. Grinder placed his in Face's cockpit as a prank, but Face thought it was Ton's so it didn't really work. As revenge, he wired up Grinder's room to make a scritch-scritch-scritch noise and placed an entry in the computer database about a ficticious cousin of the Glass Prowler, the poisonous Crystal Deceiver. This, coupled with the noise, made Grinder paranoid and subsequently faint when he tried to escape from his room.

Q. Who were Wedge Antilles' romantic interests and what became of them?

A.
*Qwi Xux (pink bird girl that helped engineer the death star :( )
They met during the Jedi Academy Trilogy Novels IIRC.

they split up after a few years, it was a mutual decision IIRC. By the time if NJO, Qwi was last mentioned as helping a species called Vors rebuild a sacred structure on their homeworld(Vortex)

*Wedge then fell for Iella Wessiri of new republic intelligence. This all came to fruition in the later X-Wing series novel, Starfighters of Adumar By the time of NJO, Wedge and Iella had a young daughter Myri.

A.
Man, you *almost* got me there..... I was thinking fett, and then it dawned on me... the other fett... Jodo Kast.

Thrawn impersonated Kast in an intricate scheme, which IIRC was described in the 'Tales from The Empire' compilation.

Kast, was a bounty hunter, who also wore mandalorian armour, so often used to be mistook for Fett. Kast often used this to his advantage, letting bounties and creditors think he was Fett so as to collect the $$$. Fett eventually caught up with Kast on Tatooine and put an end to him(this was described in a Boba fett comic. which I think was called 'Boba Fett : Twin Engines of Destruction' or something thereabouts :) )

phew !

this is what Kast looks like (as per the Star Wars customisable card game :) )

Q. Who is Keiran Halcyon, what other name is he known as, and how did he discover his true heritage ??

mtfbwya

Rogue Nine
01-04-2005, 06:15 AM
A. Keiran Halcyon was the name Rogue Squadron pilot Corran Horn took when he decided to attend Luke Skywalker's Jedi Academy on Yavin 4. He discovered his true heritage when his R2 astromech Whistler played a message for him left by his father, Hal Horn, letting Corran know that his true grandfather was not Rostek Horn as he had previously thought, but Nejaa Halcyon, Jedi Knight. Corran decided to take up his grandfather's legacy and attended the Jedi Academy not only to honor his progenitors' memories, but to help him in his search for Mirax, his wife.

This one may be a tad bit obscure, but here goes...

Q. Who was Zeth Fost and what name is he better known under? (Bonus: Name the Corellian smuggler he once worked with.)

Tanesh
01-04-2005, 06:57 AM
His real name is Kyp Durron, an apprentice of Luke Skywalker who turned to the dark side and took the, uh, sun crusher (I don't know the English name - it's the ship constructed by Qwi Xux which can destroy while suns) to attack the empire. The Corellian smuggler could be Han Solo who rescued Kyp from Kessel or Fen Nabon whom he met during his mission as Zeth Fost. But I'm not sure if Fen was Corellian.

Rogue Nine
01-04-2005, 08:41 AM
Very good, Tanesh. I was actually looking for Fen Nabon (yes, she was Corellian) with the bonus question, guess I kinda forgot Kyp knew Han too. :p

You get to ask the next one then. :)

Astrotoy7
01-04-2005, 02:39 PM
*cough* References ! I assume you are referring to the Jedi Academy Trilogy with Kyp, but I cannot remember Fen Nabon from there...it has been a *very* long time since I have read that series. Niner, if Tanesh doesnt come back after a day or so, you can post another question if you like, your questions are pretty cool :D

Sorry to disappoint you, I decided to come back. ;)
Fen Nabon didn't appear in Jedi Academy trilogy, it was a short story from the book "Tales of the New Republic".

A.
Damn these "Tales of" compilation. They occupy a very old and vague space in my memory !

I'm pretty sure this is from "Tales from the Empire".

OK. Lex Kempo was a crazy corellian who paraded around in a modified imp scout armour. He was initially was an imperial scout, but then defected to the alliance/new republic, working within the Red Alpha unit. He eventually broke off from this, joining Red Moons, a paramilitary unit.

He met his end by driving a repulsor sled full of explosives into a slaver compound on Gabredor III, leaving a crescent shaped trail of destruction in the compund - the symbol of Red Moons.

Q. Who was Kir Kanos and Kenix Kil, and what were their respective occupations ??

swphreak
01-07-2005, 11:32 AM
A: Kir Kanos is a Royal Guardsman for Palpatine. Kenix Kil is Kir Kanos acting as a Bounty Hunter, and I think Kenix Kil was the name he used during his training on Yinchorr. You can read it in the Crimson Empire comics. Good read.

I really need to re-read my Star Wars library again.

Q: Which Rogue Squadron member is a princess, and of what?

Rogue Nine
01-07-2005, 06:48 PM
A. Her name was Plourr Ilo and she was princess of Eiattu. This story was told in the Rogue Squadron comic series.

I gotta say, Im really impressed with standard of questions :D Great job *wipes tears* :p

Q. Name one of the Y-wing pilots flying cover for Dash Rendar as he boarded the Imperial freighter Suprosa

A. Heh. the fact that it is you asking this question Niner, is itself a clue :p This occurred of course during SOTE era, but IIRC was overlapped by events during the awesome X-Wing Alliance PC game. The Y-Wing escort was provided by none other than Luke Skywalker with a posse of Bothans in tow :D

Cap, I think you hadn't noticed that the thread spilled over onto a second page(as my question re-Kir Kanos was at the bottom of page 1) :) No biggie. You are absolutely correct though, as was phreak :D

swphreak
01-07-2005, 11:30 PM
A: I believe you are referring to Gilad Pellaeon (I think I actually spelled his name right!), captain of the Imperial Star Destroyer Chimaera (I think I spelled that right too). He became captain after assuming command when the previous captain was killed during the battle. He served under Thrawn, Daala, and others. He becomes Admiral/Supreme Commander of the Imperial Fleet when Daala was defeated and steps down as Admiral.

Eclipse-Class:
Eclipse
Built for the Emperor around the Battle of Endor, but wasn't finished until 6 years later. Destroyed by the Emperor when he lost control over the Force Storm he had created.

Eclipse II
Destroyed by the Galaxy Gun, along with a sizable force of other ships, and Byss itself.


Executor-Class:
Aggressor
Flagship of Admiral Roekm stationed in the Inner Rim Regions. Entered into
service before the battle of Endor.

Executor
The very first Executor class to roll out of the shipyards. Commanded by
Admiral Ozzel, later by Captain Piett. Darth Vaders flagship. Met it's
demise when it plunged into the second Death Star surface.

Guardian
Flagship of Fleet Admiral Gaen Drommel. Was stationed in the Core regions
near Coruscant at the time of Return of the Jedi. Heavy damaged three years
after the Battle of Endor, but survived. Captured by the New Republic a
decade later.

Intimidator
Was finished around 13 years after the Battle of Endor. Became the Yevethan
flagship, later renamed to Pride of Yevethan.

Iron Fist
Original named Brawl, but was quickly renamed to Iron Fist by Admiral Zsinj, after his old Victory Class star destroyer.

Knight Hammer
Constructed by warlord Superior General Delvardus and commanded by Admiral Daala approximately eight years after the Emperor's death. Plated with special "stealth armour" as a sensor countermeasure, which has the interesting side-effect of making the hull almost completely black.

Lusankya
Secretly built and buried under the surface of Coruscant. Used as a top security prison complex for Imperial Intelligence.

Razor Kiss
Constructed 4 years after the Battle of Endor. Stolen by (then) Warlord Zsinj.

Reaper
Flagship of Scourge Squadron, an elite group of star destroyers which was formed for Grand Moff Tarkin and commanded by Grand Moff Ardus Kaine subsequent to Tarkin's death. Flagship of Kaine's Pentastar Alignment Imperial faction at a time approximately three years after the Emperor's death.

Terror
Admiral Sarn's command ship appearing in the Rebel Assault II computer game, some time before the Battle of Endor. It’s history is pretty much unknown.

Vengeance
Commanded by Admiral Senn in Airam sector sometime between the battles of Hoth and Endor. It’s fate is unknown.


Mandator-Class:
Mandator
Apparently one of the top line star dreadnoughts in the wealthy and well defended shipbuilding Kuat Sector at the outbreak of the Clone Wars. Supposedly it’s big enough to be included as a Super Star Destroyer, but little is known of it.


Sovereign-Class:
Sovereign
First of atleast 4 Sovereign-Class ships built 6 years after Endor, but was never finished. Unknown reason why not.

Autarch
One of atleast 4 Sovereign-Class ships built 6 years after Endor. Nothing is really known of it.

Despot
One of atleast 4 Sovereign-Class ships built 6 years after Endor. Nothing is really known of it.

Hereshiarch
One of atleast 4 Sovereign-Class ships built 6 years after Endor. Nothing is really known of it.


That's about all I know (some I re-learned about and a few I learned about :D )

ok....maybe it was a separate incident ?? I quote CUSWE

The Empire had outfitted the Suprosa with hidden weapons systems, making it appear as a fertilizer hauler. It quickly opened fire on the Y-Wings flown by Luke and the Bothans, killing six ships before being disabled and boarded

please clarify Niner, I am highly intrigued ! :p

I'm gonna give it to Jan, because he got the pilot's name I was looking for. In the game X-Wing Alliance, you fly as Ace Azzameen in one of the Y-Wings flying cover for Dash Rendar on the Suprosa. Luke is in the mission as well, but he's flying his own X-Wing. I'm pretty sure that's the way it went down in Shadows of the Empire, in both the book and the N64 game. I could be wrong, but I was basing this question off of knowledge of XWA.

And I did not stalk Larry Holland. I wrote him many angry letters and kidnapped his children, but I did not stalk him. :D

By the way, Rogue Nine's X-Wing had a green trim. ;)

I think the truth is somewhere in the middle, the CUSWE also states the SOTE sourcebook as a reference, and you know those sourcebooks are damn freaky. Nonetheless, since you were referring to XWA, I will trust in your extensive knowledge of that wonderful game. :)

I really didnt research Rogue Nine for that card, I plugged it into an google image search and found that someone had made a card for it. I just altered the text.

yep, they are hella cool star destroyers that use gravity well projectors(the domes) to yank ships out of hyperspace. Interestingly enough, the Yuuzhan Vong used biological analogues of these, with dovin basals acting as living gravity well projectors :cool:

@SWP, well, I included the others since you asked for super star destroyers. :)
They all are. Just different classes. I forgot the Vengeance Class though, which is only one known ship from the Jedi Knight game.

Anyway, some interdictors are star destroyers, like the Dominator-Class (http://www.theforce.net/swtc/Pix/comics/xwing/xwtpa6.jpg) star destroyer (1.6 km long), while others are much smaller vessels which has been given the the same wedge shape as star destroyers, like the Immobiliser-418 (http://www.theforce.net/swtc/Pix/books/egvv/immo418-eg1.gif).




I forgot to add my question yesterday (sorry about that :( ), so I shall give it instead of Cap. :)

HINT: They are equal of rank.

Wraith 8
01-10-2005, 03:06 AM
A:
just a guess
Imperial Prefect
the highest-ranking Imperial official on a planet, he is the Emperor's liaison with a planet's existing government.

and

Grand Moff
an Imperial governor, presiding over a sector of the galaxy which has been denoted as a priority sector by the Emperor. The Grand Moff's jurisdiction may span one or more sectors, incorporating part of all of the space ruled over by a Moff.

hope i got it right

p.s. example of a prefect: DEFT AKLIN! :p :p ;)

01-10-2005, 04:43 AM

Wraith 8
01-10-2005, 10:53 AM
ah ok.. and no jan... dont know if you heard but DS is no more. they split up. deft took leemu and toonces and many nmor eof the core group to start a new guild. they are on dantooine.

ok so then grand admiral is the correct one:
Grand Admiral
this was the highest rank an Imperial Navy officer could reach, originally establihed by Emperor Palpatine during Fete Week two years prior to the Battle of Yavin. At the time of the Battle of Endor, there were only twelve Grand Admirals in the Navy. They were distinguished from other Imperial officers by their stark, white uniforms, and Palpatine often referred to them as his "Circle of Twelve". The Alliance maintained records of each Grand Admiral's whereabouts, in order to ensure that they didn't get a chance to rally Imperial forces. Among the twelve known Grand Admirals at that time were Martio Batch, Nial Declann, Josef Grunger, Ishin Il-Raz, Afsheen Makati, Danetta Pitta, Pecatti Syn, Miltin Takel, Osvald Teshik, Rufaan Tigellinus, Demetrius Zaarin, and the so-called "Last Grand Admiral," Admiral Grant. The most infamous of them all, however, was the thirteenth Grand Admiral, Thrawn, who filled the void left when Zaarin was killed during his own attempt to become Emperor. By the time the Imperial Remnant agreed to a peace treaty with the New Republic, Pellaeon was believed to the only surviving Grand Admiral, a rank he had earned well after the death of Thrawn.

.....
and after reading through a list of ranks... i hardly know what higher then that... the HIGH INQUISITOR seems to work directly under the emperor... but the emperor's hand... Like Mara Jade had an awefull lot of power aswell. but that wasnt really a rank like the inquisitor.. so ill go with the HIGH INQUISITOR. again a guess :)

High Inquisitor
this was the name given to the Imperial Dark Side adepts who worked directly for Emperor Palpatine, rooting out potential sources of Jedi candidates and Force activity during the height of the New Order. Known collectively as the Inquisitorious, the High Inquisitors struck fear into the hearts of beings by their mere presence. Through the efforts of the High Inquisitors, Emperor Palpatine hoped complete his Jedi Purge and eliminate any possible threat from the Jedi Knights.

dont think its correct tho

pfft ! yeah, I know that, but the world of EU is nebulous beyond the realms Steve Swanseets little mind. Siv is 100% on the money...

Palpatine's full name (assuming he has any names other than "Palpatine" alone) has never been revealed. The usage "Emperor Palpatine" suggests that Palpatine is in fact his only name, though the use of titles such as "Senator Palpatine" suggests it may be his family name. Nevertheless, the original version of his character in Lucas's early scripts was named "Cos Da****" and many Star Wars fan fiction writers have quite incorrectly adopted the name "Cos Palpatine" in their stories and web pages -- so much so that it has become fanon. Of course, Palpatine might be a name of state, as the name Amidala is, so it may mean that neither Palpatine's given nor family name is known.

A. Vader's Castle, aka Bast Castle, aka Vader's Fortress, was located on the planet Vjun. It was one of the few places Lord Vader could recuperate outside of his armor. After his death, the reborn Emperor used it as a staging point for his return to power. His Dark Jedi made it a base for their operations. Luke Skywalker and some of his Jedi eventually find it and are able to defeat the Dark Jedi. Vjun and Vader's Castle were featured in the game Jedi Knight: Jedi Academy. Jedi Jaden Korr and Kyle Katarn go to Vjun to retrieve a lost apprentice. (I'm really not quite sure what you want for EU relevance and the game.)

A-Wing Slash

Category: Spaceflight
Type: Tactics
Affiliation: New Republic

this New Republic naval battle technique required split-second timing among a group of starfighters. The maneuver usually employed a group of X-Wings which flew directly toward the defensive line guarding a capital ship. Flying just behind the X-Wings would be a group of A-Wings, hiding in the X-Wings' drive glows. The X-Wings disengaged their attack at the last second, drawing the fire of the defense with them. The A-Wings could then strafe the undefended ship at will. It was very similar to a saggery-blossom maneuver.

Man, had to sift through my brain for this one. Yinchorr has featured in EU way back since the Marvel Comic days !

But what I think you are referring to is described in the hella cool Crimson Empire comix -

The four finalists for selection into the Imperial Guard were -
*Carnor Jax
*Alum Frost
*Kir Kanos
*Lemmet Tauk

BONUS
Their final test was a fight to the death to display loyalty to the emperor - with Kanos being forced to kill his friend Lemmet Tauk, and Carnor Jax killing Alum Frost...

IIRC, Kanos also gets jumped by Vader , who provides him with his distinctive lightsaber scar across his face :D

Tales from the Mos Eisley Cantina *
The Last Command Timothy Zahn *
Specter of the Past Timothy Zahn
* contributed by Phil Messelken

Affliations

Formerly a member of the Mistryl, a group of female warriors from the planet Emberlene. An honorable group, the Mistryl were commissioned by the Eleven Elders of the People (of the planet Emberlene). The Mistryl sold their services and combat skills to 'the oppressed and powerless' in order to earn money for their devastated planet.

Shada left the Mistryl when she was ordered to abandon her role as the smuggler Mazzic's bodyguard. The Mistryl, for reasons we do not yet know, planned to kill Mazzic. Shada disagreed with this, and the mercenary direction the Mistryl were apparently taking.

After leaving the Mistryl, Shada made her way to Coruscant, where she asked Princess Leia if she could join the New Republic. Princess Leia arranged for Shada to join Talon Karrde in his rescue of the missing Mara Jade.

Special Distinctions

Shada is extremely stealthy and highly skilled with weapons and in hand to hand combat. In her attempt to reach Princess Leia, Shada was able to break into and enter the Princess's home after first disabling one of Leia's Noghri guards. As Specter of the Past is the first in Zahn's new two novel Hand of Thrawn series, we can expect to see more of Shada in the next installment of the ongoing Star Wars saga.

lazy, no way. I commend CapN for taking the time(ie. not laziness) to research an answer..... many of us dont have the time, or even the actual books etc, to try and find the answer in p.132 :p

The detail of many of the responses that are required have meant that a little bit of research is often required, especially as these are books/comics/games we may have read/played over 5-10+ years ago !

Research is encouraged and applauded ! though, it is probably better to paraphrase rather than straight cut'n'paste :p

which book did Garm Bel Iblis first appear in?

Wraith 8
01-18-2005, 04:52 AM
Bel Iblis, Garm


Category: Characters
Type: Human
Qualifier: Corellian
Affiliation: New Republic
Planet of Origin: Corellia


a legendary Corellian who sat on the Old Republic's Senate, Garm Bel Iblis was as charismatic as Senator Palpatine, but not as devious. As Bel Iblis watched, Palaptine quickly took over the Senate and the Old Republic. It was then-Senator Bel Iblis who announced that Corellia and the Corellian System would close its borders to the Old Republic, shortly before the onset of the Clone Wars, in an effort to avoid the turmoil surrounding the separtist movement of the day. He was quick to point out that Corellia was not seceding, but rather going into a period of Contemplanys Hermi, which literally meant "meditative solitude." When the New Order was established, Palpatine sought out Iblis on Anchoron and murdered his family, although Iblis found a way to escape before they could kil him. He made contact with Bail Organa and Mon Mothma, and was influential in organizing the Rebellion and creating the Corellian Treaty. However, when Mon Mothma's charismatic personality began to take over the growing Alliance, Bel Iblis felt she was becoming too strong, and left the Alliance to fight the Empire on his own. He led a group of freedom fighters, striking against the Empire from a number of hidden bases. Among his compatriots, he was known as the Commander. Bel Iblis continued to stab at the Empire following the Battle of Endor, although he turned his attention to the New Republic. His prejudice against Mon Mothma told him that she would soon make the Republic a dictatorship. Following a successful attack on a Ubiqtorate base on Tangrene, Bel Iblis met up with Borsk Fey'lya, who set him up with a covert supply line in hopes that he could sway Bel Iblis to rejoin the New Republic as one of his supporters. He was later discovered by Han Solo and Lando Calrissian, and he was drawn into the New Republic. He reluctantly decided to help the Republic recover the Katana fleet, and later made a peace with Mon Mothma and joined the New Republic. This relationship failed when the Yuuzhan Vong invaded the galaxy, however, as Bel Iblis saw the same petty bickering and in-fighting that led to the fall of the Old Republic. Rather than be caught up in the machinations of Borsk Fey'lya, Bel Iblis again resigned his commission and set out on his own. He continued to command at the Republic's base on Fondor, but had split from acting directly for the New Republic. He established a personal base on Talaan, from which he commanded three distinct fleets. As before, Bel Iblis gathered to him a crack team of soldiers and officers, and began attacking the Yuuzhan Vong from hidden locations.

This is pretty close to movie related :p

OK...Phreak got it pretty much....

ROTJ:SE ...with the new performance added to Jabba's Palace, the singer is Joh Yowza by name. Yuzzum is the name of his species, which are native to endor. This obviously wasnt mentioned in the movies, which is why it qualifies as EU :p

here's a pic :
http://red6.home.insightbb.com/Aliens/Endor/yuzzum.jpg

and here's a freaky page on endors inhabitants http://red6.home.insightbb.com/Aliens/Endor/Forgot.htm

The BONUS points bit relates to the fact that GL names Yuzzum on ROTJ after YuzzEm in 'Splinter of the Minds Eye' ...

references :
CUSWE entries :
Yuzzum
Yuzzem
Endor
Splinter of the Minds Eye.

That would be Dewlanna. She was an old Wookiee cook living on the Trader's Luck. How that works out, I don't know. I know I wouldn't want a wookiee preparing my meals. She dies saving Han's life.

hmmm....

Im only speculating....

Cakhmaim and Winter were charged with guarding the twins. Cakhmaim of course being a noghri and Winter an alderaanian female. They eventually ended up on Anoth. The droids on hand were the TDL nanny droid and 3po(on and off)...

uhm first of all. you were wrong phreak :p tracjan sal solo wasnt behind all the riots and coupe in the corellia system :p just for the planet corellia :p

and to answer your question:
he was a Drall.. specie. i got the dutch word for it tho :). from one of the corellian sytem planets named: Drall

his name was Ebrihim. and he had a droid as assistant his number was: Q9-X2. he was a droid with a personality. never wanting to really listen and always in for an argument. he was also always upgrading himself without asking for new upgrades. he looked a bit like R2-D2. but he could float on repulsers. and he could talk. instead of beeps.

i got this info from the corellian trilogy and tyhe book is named: ambush at corellia.


my question stands. :)

i think he is referring to the triad, which was the ruling group on Sacorria, consisting of one Human, one Drall, and one Selonian. It was from the third Corellian Trilogy book: Showdown at Centerpoint.

OK...

from CUSWE, of course :
...This was the primary governmental body of the planet Sacorria. It was formed from three leaders, each representing one of the three main races - human, Selonian, and Drall - which made Sacorria their home

Shortly after the defeat of Grand Admiral Thrawn, the Triad attempted to secede from the New Republic and take control of the Corellian Sector. They made a deal with Thrackan Sal-Solo, who provided his Human League members as disposable troops in return for his chance to become Diktat of the Corellian System. ....

I'm awarding Shok the point. Wraith, Im not sure what you meant by 'what was so special about them', apart from perhaps they comprised three different races... ? please confirm :)

BONUS : a pic :D

Wraith 8
01-28-2005, 02:14 AM
yes the answer is correct :) the Triad funded all riots in the system to take control of the corellian planets. and yeah the speacial thing was that they consisted of being a drall, selonia and human because those 3 didnt really get along ... i mean the species that:)

A: R4-P17. He was located IN the ship. his body wasnt really visable because it was inside the ship itself. R4 couldnt be removed an ride around. only his head was able to turn. so no arms to reach certain areas of a ship like R2-D2.
btw its a starfighter Delta-7 :)
now your question of whom..... i dont know what to say on,

but i do have a pic :p

Kenobi's saber was taken by Vader as a keepsake, after 'defeating' him on DS1. The saber was taken to Vaders castle(on Vjun), and was later discovered by a young anakin solo. This is described in the story "Kenobi's Blade" in the "Junior Jedi Knights" series...

as for The Guardians....now there are several 'Guardians' organsations listed in CUSWE.... I have picked the coolest :p (tho Im not sure if its what you are after....

A. They were a Bounty Hunters Guild, which existed during Civil war period. Their distinguishing feature was red armour...

* * *

Please clarify Phreak, in the meantime, I will ask a new question...

This is a 3 POINT QUESTION

Q. Name 5 famous Hutts and a very brief description of what they did, where they appeared ... (yes, you may include the most obvious one)...

mtfbwya

swphreak
02-05-2005, 09:50 PM
tsk tsk

Someone doesn't read their Old Republic Comics.

The Guardians of Kiffu. They are a group of force sensitives charged with guarding the prison world of Kiffex. They have psychometric abilities which allowed them to "read the past" from objects. Jedi Quinlan Vos is a Jedi first and a Guardian. His psychometric abilities are stronger than other Guardians. Check out the Old Republic Comics before/during the Clone Wars.

That card is acceptable, when I win next round, it has to be even better! :xp:

A:

Jabba the Hutt: Everyone knows Jabba. He hung Han frozen in carbonite on his wall, and killed his cousin (or what would be cousins for Hutts)! Jabba appears in the movies and some EU books.

Zorba the Hutt: Zorba was Jabba's father. he taught Jabba everything he knew. After he learned that Jabba was dead, he sought out revenge on Leia. I remember he is mention in a couple of places. I think any book dealing with Hutts...

Jiliac the Hutt: Jiliac was Jabba's uncle. During the Ylesia scam, they worked together to make credits off Ylesia. They were the ones who hired Han, and that's how Han met Jabba. Jiliac was killed by Durga the Hutt for murdering his father. After the battle, Jabba killed Jiliac's offspring, giving him control of clan Deslijic. Read about it in the han Solo Trilogy.

Aruk the Hutt: Aruk of clan Besadii was Jiliac's rival at the time. Jiliac had Aruk killed through slow poisoning. Aruk is Durga's father, which is why Durga killed Jiliac. Read about it in the Han Solo Trilogy.

Durga the Hutt: Aruk's offspring was lucky to be alive. Due to the birthmark on his face, he was pretty much socially unacceptable. After Aruk was killed, Durga became partners with Prince Xizor and Black Sun to find out who killed his father. He found out, killed Jiliac, and remained in the shadows of Jabba's sucess over the years. Durga is most notable for his Darksaber effort... which was a huge failure. Durga is the one responsible for Crix Madine's death. <.<
Durga died aboard Darksaber. Read about it in Darksaber or the Han Solo Trilogy.

Gardulla the Hutt: A close friend of Jabba. Most notable about Gardulla was that she owned Anakin and his mother until Gardulla lost them on a podrace to Watto. See it in the Phantom Menace.

Grappa the Hutt: Grappa is known for his ruthlessness, ties to Black Sun, and his contract with Zanzibar. He unknowingly hired Kir Kanos under the guise of Kenix Kil, bounty hunter. In the end, New Republic forces raided Grappa's fortress, and the disgruntled Zanzibar captures Grappa to be used for their "ceremonies." Read about it in the Crimson Empire [Council of Blood] comics.

Kibbick the Hutt: Nephew of Aruk, and sent to be "in charge" of the Ylesia scam. Kibbick is considered a retard by Hutt standards. In the end, he was killed by Teroenza. Read about it in the Han Solo Trilogy.

:joy:

Q: I was the last of my kind. I ensured our survival, and taught patience, planning, and secrecy. Who am I?

This really should be easy, and you should be ashamed if you have to look this up.

you only needed 5 there smartguy :p

anyways 3 points to you :)

as I said, there were several entries for Guardians, including the Kiffu Guardians. I only picked the coolest :p I think your questions should have been more specific, because "The Guardians" specifically refer to a group which appeared in Legacy of the Jedi....

as for your question, beware you fall into the "Rogue Nine Trap" :p by asking a question that has more than one answer(just like your previous one actually)......

for example, Im saying Luke Skywalker... he was the last of the jedi for a very long time, quoting Yoda

when gone am I, the last of the jedi will you be....

Ensured survival....by establishing the Jedi Academy on Yavin 4.

Taught patience, planning, and secrecy....
Patience/Planning : to re-stablish the jedi order was going to be a long process, including the discovery of force sensitives from around the galaxy. With no records from the Republic, Luke has had to make most of it up as he goes along :(

Secrecy : Yavin 4 academy and its students were shielded from the prying eyes of the galaxy, and those who could profit from undermining Lukes Plans.....

If you are thinking of someone different, then I suggest you rephrase your question :D

Q: I was the last of my kind. I ensured our survival, and taught patience, planning, and secrecy. Who am I?

Darth Bane.

The last of the Sith Lords, survivour of the Battle on Ruusan. The saviour of the Sith cult and teachings, by introducing stealth and secrecy.


My apologies for saying Wraith 8's question shouldn't be hard. :)
I merely ment it shouldn't be hard to find the answer, since even I have heard the name General Cracken before. :)
Wether we know how he actually died or not, I have no idea of. :D
I don't know much about this character more than his name. ;)

See Phreak, Im sure there are probably other valid answers to your vague question. Though perhaps you are yourself thinking of Darth Bane as well.

Bane did cross my mind, as he is basically the sith version of Luke, ie. had to reform the order from scratch...

anyway, Phreak, confirm who *you* were thinking of ..... :p

* * *

I will resume in the interim...

Q. OK. Soontir Fel :
*Who was he ?
*Where was he from ?
*Who was his famous 'classmate' ?
*Where was he during The Battle of Yavin ?
*Name his famous squadron's name ?

BONUS : Pic

swphreak
02-06-2005, 08:47 AM
But Luke was not the last of his kind. There was another :p

Darth Bane is the correct answer. I don't think Luke was really teaching secrecy. Besides, if I gave the bit about "1000s of years ago," everyone would have gotten it.

And meh @ Guardians. Red armor isn;t special. Royal Guardsmen had Red armor :p

A:
*Baron Soontir Fel is the legendary TIE pilot of the empire. You could say he was the "Imperial's Wedge" in a cockpit. He is married to Wedge's sister. Ysanne Isard gave him a lot of crap, but in the end, Fel joined with the Hand of Thrawn, and in the NJO, resides in Chiss space.
*He was a farm boy Corellia.
*Han Solo (and Loka Hask) was Fel's classmate.
*They were at Ord Biniir.
*The 181st.

Q: Explain why Hapan Battle Dragons are designed the way they are.

Bonus: Provid a pic of the ship.

Shok_Tinoktin
02-06-2005, 01:27 PM
A. Hapan Battle Dragons are designed the way they are so that they could get a faster firing rate by rotating and always having a charged laser cannon facing their target. Originally from Courtship of Princess Leia, I believe.

http://students.washington.edu/mikhansn/images/LWGallery/HBD1001A.jpg

Q. Who helped Wedge and Corran on their mission on Bothuwai, and what prior association does this person have with the Horn family?

swphreak
02-06-2005, 01:51 PM
I'll accept that answer. The reason they have it rotating is because they lacked the technology to have their turbolasers to recharge as fast as Imperials/Rebels/ect. I believe during the NJO, the Hapans were given the quick recharging technology for their ships.

Speaking of Hapans, I miss Queen Mother Tenel Ka <.<

02-07-2005, 08:35 AM

swphreak
02-08-2005, 08:09 AM
A: Since many people really hate many people, I'm taking a guess here.

Bossk really hates Chewbacca because Chewie is always beating and humiliating Bossk.

Corran Horn hates Bossk because the Trandoshan killed Corran's father, but the imperial liason at CorSec let Bossk go,

Shok_Tinoktin

The answer was Moranda Savich. And her previous connection to the Horn family was that she had been on the run from Hal, who had been trying to arrest her, but they wound up working together to escape Ysanne Isard and save the Death Star plans. The source for the first part was Hand of Thrawn duology, and the second part was from Tales from the New Republic.

Davin Felth was training to be an AT-AT pilot, and discovered the weakness in the them. However, General Veers hid the information, and Davin was made into a stormtrooper and sent to Tatooine.

His occupation was stormtrooper

I'm not sure what you are looking for about how he was difference, but some ways include that he had been in training as an At-AT pilot and that he dissaproved of the Empire's methods.

What he did most notably, was utter the line "look sir, droids"

difference: He was one of the generation of stormies that wasnt a clone..

notable: shot his squad captain(called Terrik) whilst they were firing at Han and Co. leaving on the Falcon in ANH. He did this as earlier, he was sickened at Terrik executing a Jawa for not being able to furnish him with information about the Rebels in Mos Eisley... As a result of these events, Felth became a Rebel sympathiser.

all this of course, in the Tales from Mos Eisley compilation....

Firstly, correct !

Secondly, it was becoming too common that when an answer was provided there was was no follow up question. I choose to keep the ball rolling and asked a question.

It's easy. If you want to ask a question but havent thought of one yet, just say so

eg. I'll be back later with my question ! watch this space...!!


or of course, if you dont want to ask a question say you pass on doing so....

leaving it blank leaves it open for anyone to ask a question. This just happens to be me most often because I agreed(upon suggestion by others mods when I proposed this) to drive the thing along. That is why I am always excluded from the points tally

A. Jabitha is the medium through which the sentient planet Zonama Sekot, communicated its will... source : late NJO. I will add a bit more detail to this answer later today !

* * *

I was thinking of this (http://www.starwars.com/databank/starship/jabitha/eu.html)... but uhh... you're the trivia boss <.<

A: That is Nom Anor, a Yuuzhan Vong, of the Intendent caste. He masqueraded as many things ;)

but I think you mean the leader of the Red Knights of Rhommamool.... don't remember the name.

I think he first appeared in Crimson Empire II: Council of Blood.

Yes I am the boss !! :p Congratulations, you have fallen into the infamous "Rogue Nine Trap" ....namely asking a question that has more than one answer :p

Jabitha was the being that ship was named after... She was in late NJO but actually first appeared in 'Rogue Planet'
http://www.geocities.com/womenofsw/bios/jabitha.html

I was after Nom Anor masquerading as Yuu'sha, the prophet sent to guide the shamed ones to freedom...

Yes, crimson empire is correct :p

the Coway go *all the way back* to the infamous Splinter of the Minds Eye :p

They are small, furry humanoids (omg ewoks !) and are believed to be related to the Mimbanites. Like the ewoks they were fairly low tech :p

A: Lady Valarian is a Whiphid crime lord on Tatioone. She owns the Lucky Despot Hotel in Mos Eisley. Her main rival was Jabba the Hutt. SHe moved to Mos Ethna, and is basically the main source for resources for the planet.

Here's an easy one since I can't find an harder question:

A)The B'omarr monks were a religious group that had a citadel on Tatooine, that would later become Jabba's Palace. They believed in the physical denial of all senses. They even went so far as to transport their brains from their bodies to nutrient suspension. I think the famous character you're referring to is Bib Fortuna. He was eventually able to have his brain put into the body of Firith Olan. He was able to gain considerable power from a combination of Jabba's old resource, Firith's resources, and his relationship with Lady Valarian's successor Shiri'ani.

Q)What force sensitive species inhabits the Kathol Rift?

swphreak

A: That would be the Aing-Tii. They use the force in mysterious ways.

Since I'm sure I got it right, I'll ask a question.

Q: How many gifts did Prince Isolder offer the New Republic/Leia? Why did they offer that many? What was the most important gift?

guybroom

Prince Isolder gave leia 63 gifts from 63 planets. The most important was the gift of his hand in marriage.

hmm... no takers :) :p

A. Omwat orbital was the Facility Qwi Xux initially worked on when developing the death star project. She was an Omwati herself, and was later moved to the Maw Installation to continue her work.

She describes working on Omwat Orbital it in the Jedi Academy Trilogy. Of course, Qwi's love interest back then was Wedge Antilles.....

He is from Concord Dawn and head of the Death Watch

OK. Guybroom. Remember to list some references, where did you read it etc ??

anyways, I will award the point :) Though Tanesh and Phreak are correct. Jaster was not from Death Watch....

Jaster was a Journeyman Protector from Concorde Dawn. He was taken in by Mandalorian Shocktroopers, and worked for them as a mercenary. So he actually wasnt a true Mandalorian, in the KOTOR era sense anyway :) ) A breakaway Mandalorian group called the Death Watch attempted to over the Shocktroopers and Jaster survived their attack, largely due to the efforts of Jango Fett :)

Here's the CUSWE entry for Jaster
http://theforce.net/swenc/entrydesc.asp?search=16253

There's also some stuff at the official site, of course :)

Tidbit : Boba Fett's green Mandalorian armour, is actually Jaster's :)

Q. What happened to the last remaining IG-88 and which was it?

swphreak
03-03-2005, 06:20 AM
A: The last true IG-88 (Programming) was the Death Star II's core. I'm guessing IG-88A. That was from memory...

The last IG-88 (droid shell) was in the YJK books. Raynar's Uncle found IG-88A's body, and reprogrammed it.

I wonder how IG-88 would have fared during the Yuuzhan Vong invasion?

I won't ask a question since I'm not sure if that was the answer you were looking for.

P.S. I didn't use any Star Wars Encylcopedia you cheaters :p

The final IG-88 was destroyed by the death star and I think you're right about which it was. It was IG-88A.

yes indeed.... as seen in previous instances, if someone has answered a question, and given refs etc, they may still go on and ask a question. It is however imprtant that the person who aske dthe question clarifies, as this may affect points being assigned.

you'll notice that when questions in doubt are clarified I usually edit a post with a point assignment :)

anyway, enough babble, back to the questions :)

Q: Who is most likely responsible for Kalan's death?

A. Kalan was Prince Isolder's older brother. He was killed due to political motives and it was initially believed that his Aunt(Seccah) had orchestrated it...

Isolder finally confronted his mother and accused her of being behind the deaths of Kalan and Lady Elliar. Ta'a Chume accepted Isolder's fiancée, and stepped down from her role as Queen Mother, handing that mantle to Teneniel Djo

;)

I think everyone accepts that Ta'a Chume did kill her son.

Firstly, unless you are one of the regulars and have changed your name, I send you a hearty welcome. Jedispy....

You mean Bria Tharen right ? She's been described earlier in a question about Han Solo....

of course, the what you are referring to is most likely the first ship Han and Chewie had, named after her...

I believe there is a reason why the comics are called called "Tales." I also think that was meant to be funny, and not taken seriously. Which is why I don't consider them to be "EU Canon" (God dammit Kurgan). They're short stories by random people.

As for 4-LOM, meh... haven't read Tales of Books in a while.

OK, it seems the current question is a bit too topical perhaps....but let me answer it ....

Nb. Kotor2 and Ep3 trailer spoiler warning !

A. There is a scene in the new ep 3 trailer that shows the duel between anakin and dooku. It is some form of sith throne room, a little similar to that in ROTJ.
http://www.myimgs.com/data/astrotoy7/trailercap.jpg

It does bear some resemblance to the sith meditation chamber used by Visas Marr in KOTOR2.....

Here's a question:

(not EU, but I liked it)

What was Yoda's response when Luke asked him what was inside the tree cave?


Exact quotage people!

jedispy
03-15-2005, 04:46 PM
A: Only what you bring with you.


StarWarsPhreak is correct as is Astrotoy7. Luke was poised to potentially attack Joruus C'Boath, when the crazed clone jedi master killed all of the ysalamiri. Then Luke sensed a disturbance in the force, his own clone. According to the Thrawn Trilogy, clones go insane due to the shared mental bandwidth. Of course this is pretty much debunked in AOTC when we find out not only is Jango the host for the clones, but as well as for Boba Fett, and he's not insane.

Anyway, Luke duals Luuke. Luke holds Luke's lightsaber, whereas Luuke holds Anakin's lightsaber. Luke gets immobilized, and Mara jumps in. If memory serves, she holds Luke's lightsaber, while she duels Luuke holding Anakin's lightsaber.

If you want to be technical Leia was holding Leia's lightsaber, but she wasn't dueling.




O.k. here's a harder one
Q: This one has two parts.

Q1: Where and when was the first time Han Solo met Senator Garm Bel Iblis?

Q2: What was Han REALLY doing there?

Wraith 8

well a person might say while he was investigating a bothan. but thats not true. the first time Han met Garm bel iblis was on corellia. he was at school and garm came to talk about something. Han was put to a dare by one of his friends to ask a certain question i cant remember right now.
anyway Han was getting taught at school :p

i hope that is the answer your looking for. Ill wait for confirmation.
