Shok is completely correct this time. And as far as I was concerned, he was correct with the "sentient" answer in the first place. He just missed the bonus point part. But hey, there's a reason Astro's a mod and I'm not. So the ball's in his court. I was satisfied with your answer though.
Also, was my answer about Dash Rendars family correct or close enough? BTW, I forgot completely about the source part. It's been a while since I posted here. Sorry 'bout that. My source is of course, Shadows of the Empire.
