[Star Wars] Take part in the least interesting arguments in this galaxy or any other.

KetarKetar Come on upstairswe're having a partyRegistered User regular
This is the thread where we gather together to sing the praises of all things Star Wars.



Or to complain about how much we hate Star Wars X, Y or Z. Or get upset with each other for liking different Star Wars. Maybe not so much of these - it's exhausting.

So let's sing those Star Wars praises instead!



Do you want to talk about how much you enjoyed The Mandalorian? Awesome, but we have a separate thread for that. https://forums.penny-arcade.com/discussion/231389/the-good-the-bad-and-the-mandalorian-open-spoilers#latest

Talk about Rebels, or The Clone Wars, or how wonderful B-Wings are here. Or whatever Star Wars floats your boat. Just be excellent to each other.

Also we are open spoilers on TROS, so be warned if you haven't seen it and somehow remain unspoiled. We will use spoiler tags for discussion of episodes of the final season of The Clone Wars until further notice. Hopefully there's a separate thread?

    B wings may be awesome, but have you considered the BT-7 Thunderclap?

    It was that somehow, from within the derelict-horror, they had learned a way to see inside an ugly, broken thing... And take away its pain.

    I'm disappointed there's no D-Wing, and thus no way of making endless cheap "Give 'em the D" type laughs. The squad leader demanding the order for them attack has to be couched as "We want the D". Amusingly shaped attack formations, etc. Just a terrible missed opportunity all round.

    Harrison Ford makes a practice of never watching movies he’s in.

  • BogartBogart Streetwise Hercules Fighting The Rising Odds Registered User, Moderator mod
    I have long loved Ford's absolute commitment to not giving a shit about the lore of anything he's in. Don't ask him if he's a Force Ghost because he doesn't give a shit and doesn't know what you're talking about.

    Ford is a professional who understands it means a lot to people, but for him it was just a role.

    For JJ, Star Wars means a lot, to him specifically, and in order to make a good Star Wars film, following his thought process, is to take what you remember from the other films, but make it BIGGER and MORE OF IT.

    Catching up on Rebels and just finished Season 3. Man, that show's pretty great. Wasn't sure how I felt about them using Thrawn but so far they've done a pretty good job. Maybe Star Wars should just stick to TV, so far both Rebel's and The Mandalorian are worlds better than the ST movies.

    Yup. like most of the ships, macguffins, plot points and background cameos, it shows up long enough to be seen and identified if you pause the movie at the right frame, and is subsequently never mentioned again.

    Gosh, all opinions on each movie aside (from me!) I just love this space cowboys / space WW2 / space bushido setting. It’s like some teenagers home-made roleplaying game. It’s all the toys spilling out of the box. It’s like when I made my sister’s Barbie a French spy to go along with my cheap knock-off Action Man on adventures against the evil Raphael (he was mind controlled) and sentient monster truck.

    If I was a Star Wars I’d wear a blue cape and a funky helmet, and I’d shoot a blaster at a bad man, then ride off in my space ship to a planet that is just tropical coastline.

    Can't think Y.

    Four awesome rebel fighters, in no particular order: A, B, X, Y. Buttons on a Dreamcast and Xbox controller: A, B, X, Y. Coincidence? I think not.

    Every version of Obi-Wan Kenobi is great. I think this is universally accepted. I also think those two statements are only true for that character alone in all of Star Wars film and television.

    The most important thing people are missing in this wiki article, is that in this fan-made(?) WEG RPG era adventure this ship is from...there is also a YT-1300 named The Doobage.

    That ship looks nothing like a penis, this is why people dont like the EU.

    It's also just generally ugly and stupid as shit.

    Which, again, why people don't like the EU.

    Who, in the prequels, was right about anything? Shmee I guess. Well, she claimed virgin birth for Anakin, so maybe not.

    I can't really argue with that.

    But I will say that the Kyle Katarn (still Legends), the TIE Defender (now canon), Thawn (now canon), Interdictor Cruisers (now canon) and Mandaloreans in general (now canon) and I'm a bunch more awesome things I can cite were all at one time EU/Legends material.

    Many of the EU ships are ugly or boring as hell. The E-Wing is generic as all hell. It kind of looks like a shittier version of Colonial Vipers from BSG. The K-Wing? Ugly, overdesigned, and they really fucking shoehorned the K in there.

    After looking both of these up, the K-wing is definitely ugly and overdesigned but the actual "looks like a k" wings are basically the only part I like.

    In a vacuum the K is fine, maybe even neat, but I can just feel the person who invented it starting from "Okay I have to put a K in this ship, how do I do that?" The space engineers aren't trying to fit the letters into it for fun. The B-Wing doesn't look like a B, and the E-Wing doesn't look like an E, which is at least something I can respect it for. Even the A-Wing only incidentally looks like an A. It looks like a small fast space ship, everything about the frame/shape/silhouette is reasonable.

    It would also make sense that the ships aren't actually named that, they would have normal ass names and then the pilots would give them those names colloquially. The Z-95 isn't called the Z or the T-Wing or whatever the hell, it has a regular ship name. Like how Rebel pilots call TIE Fighters "eyeballs" or Interceptors "squints." You'd expect the X-Wing to be officially the T-65 Quadfire Space Superiority fighter or something but nobody except for Incom sales reps call it that.
