    You are the master. You win the gold-plated, double bladed, multi-crystal lightsaber!. I'll just sit at home with a cardboard wrapping paper tube, making "voom crackle swish" sounds...

    Actually the Death Star would not start that early. If the time line is all correct it will still be a few years after ROTS before the Death Star is started. Unless it takes almost 20 years for the first one to be made and then only 3 for the secound one. But we also don't know where the Death Star is being created, but I am sure it is the Mechinics that are building it.

    The answer to that question is in the Thrawn trilogy of books by Timothy Zahn. The Imperials had a top-secret research base near the Maw Cluster of black holes, just outside the Kessel system. The Death Star prototype was built there and tested, then the plans were taken to build the first Death Star in an undisclosed location.

    Reason for the Season? Tilt of the planet's axis. Oh, you meant the holiday season? That's easy - Feast of Saturnalia. Disagree? That's nice.

    Actually, the were (Anderson was the author?) Jedi Academy trilogy where you learned about that. The Thrawn Trilogy is where you learned about the Emperor's Special Warehouse.

    The change in Star Speeder's name (or model number) is not due to the change from 20th to 21st century, but rather had to do with an uncharacteristically Disney attempt to appeal to hip urbanites with a nod to fashionable Outkast rapper and media darling Andre 3000.

    Actually, the water planet with the really bad weather is Camino. Geonosis is the red planet that the first battle of the clone wars is fought on.

    But point well taken.

    Having read the script for Episode 3, I wouldn't.

    They have to bring the Death Star into it somehow, where did it come from otherwise? I think thats a great ending!

    ps. I seem to rememeber the that Star Speeders were ALWAYS 3000s....unless Waaaaaay in the beginning they were 2000...maybe inthe development stage they were Star Speeder 2000s, and then they never got around to changing some of the signs....or they slipped by or something.
