Tycho chelcu (sp?)
he flew an A-wing and he also flew inside the deathstar. he was one of the pilots who led a couple of the tie fighters out of the death star so that lando and wedge could destroy it.

..... take a screen?? hmmm ok hang on

edit: BAH! i tried 40 times... i cant take a good screen. somehow the screen is just empty when i take it. oh well... but its the A-wing that enters right behind wedge and in front of lando.

Q: explain how Han got in possession of the Millenium Falcon. try to explain everything that went down with it.

LMAO...lemme guess..you're pressing the PrintScreen key

thats NOT how it works !

to take nice screenies you can do two things :

1. open the dvd in Windows Media Player. when you get to the bit you want, press CTRL and i...
2. get windvd 5 or 6. can take screenies frame by frame

So, Wraith - I will give you a chance to claim those bonus points, seeing you have had "technical difficulties"

A: Han Solo won the Falcon in a Sabbac match against Lando in a tournament on Bespin.

Here's some more info: Han lost the Falcon to Lando, and then Han won it back again. I can't remember how many times, but in the end, Lando let Han win the last time, and they now have a rule where they can't bet the Falcon anymore

A: Let's see. There's Kam Solusar, Gantoris, Streen, Brakiss, Tionne, Dorsk 81, Kirana Ti, Corran Horn, and Kyle Katarn. Those are the original 9 I can remember off the top of my head.

Kyp Durron and Clighal came soon after the first batch.

Googling reveals that Cray Minglas, Nichos Marr, and an unnamed alien could be in the original 12...

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)...

I'm not 100% sure if this is what you are after so I'm deferring asking a question until you confirm

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

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.
Q: Who was really behind the coupe and riots in the corellia system in the corellian trilogy. and what was so special about them?

He may not be the one who is in charge, but he is the one who gets blamed. Someone unknown is pulling the strings. If they even said who, I can;t remember. Thracken instigated the civil war...

hmm. interesting. I was never too fond of the corellian trilogy Lookalikes and distant cousins are just as bad as clones, and EU has had *enough* of clones already !

OK. Wraith's question stands:

btw..*coup is the correct spelling, coupe is a 2 door car......no biggie *

Leave your question up for a day or so more Wraith. If no-one answers, give us your answer, so we can decide if Phreakage deserves any points... Feel free to ask a new question, or pass for anyone else to ask

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.

If I'm correct, then I pass the next question to whoever wants to ask one.

OK...

from CUSWE, of course :
Quote:
...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

* * *

ok, back to the questions....

Q. There is an astromech in Obi-Wans Jedi Starfighter in EpII,,,,,what is its name, where was it found and by whom ?

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

bow i wll wait till you tell me its the right answer

Ok, it seems no-one reads SW kids books

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...

dont forget this interesting tidbit,

Quote:
...He was killed by Emperor Palpatine for not fully reporting any possible flaws with the first Death Star. Palpatine had him eaten alive by the piranha beetles from Yavin 4, but not before Palpatine had his mind and his memories transferred into a waiting clone.
Nonetheless, the point is yours Niner Now ask a question will ya !

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!

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.



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

anyways 3 points to you

as I said, there were several entries for Guardians, including the Kiffu Guardians. I only picked the coolest 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" 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

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.
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 .....

* * *

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

But Luke was not the last of his kind. There was another

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

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.
