Has anyone else tried to read the Silmarillion (sp?). I don't often have getting through a book, but man that was a tough one. I couldn't even keep straight who was who, Tolkien kept changing the names it seemed. LOTR was a better read for me.
I haven't read any of the HP books either. But today I'm picking up Shield of Lies from the library, its the second book in the Black Fleet Crisis trilogy. They had to order it from another library because their copy is "Lost". This library is one of the few in the area, that I can think of, that doesn't make you walk through the book detector, so someone probably walked out with it. But really? An obscure Star Wars book? Couldn't you have stolen something a little bit cooler? Anyway, liked the first one in the series so I'm looking forward to this one. I'm really hoping everything turns out of for Leia, Luke and friends, always seem to be getting in trouble...
In 5 of the 6 we see a small ship docked with a larger ship.
Ep1. The Republic Cruiser docks in the Trade Federation ship Ep2. None Ep3. Obi-Wan takes off from a Republic Cruiser Ep4. The MF is made to land in the Death Star Ep5. The MF is docked to the Nebulon B frigate at the end Ep6. The Imp Shuttle lands in the Death Star II
I don't know if this is only me, but I can't stand ABC and ESPN broadcasts of auto races. They have the track volume up way to high and you can't even hear what they heck the announcers are saying. If I didn't want to hear the announcers, I would turn the sound down myself. If you watch Speed or Fox's broadcast of F1 you actually hear the cars, but still hear what the announcers have to say, because they actually have intelligent things to say about the race. I guess my point is that I much prefer the early part of the NASCAR season when the races on still on Fox.
5 of the 6 movies show a native, intelligent, non-human species on their home planet
Ep1. Jawas, Sandpeople and Gungans. Ep2. Jawas, Sandpeople, Kaminoans (sp?) and Geonosians. Ep3. The Uta, the Pau, Mustafarians, Wookiees and Polis Massians. Ep4. Jawas and Sandpeople Ep5. None (no native sentinent life on Bespin or Hoth) Ep6. Jawas and Ewoks.
I saw pictures of the them on some otheR Site, the Kashyyyk one looks kinda cool. I know its a repack with different accessories of the Preview Wookiee from ROTS and basically Neyo with different armor, but its pretty cool looking. I especially like how the wookiee is holding what look to be Battle Droid arms, you know they've been known to pull your "arms out of your sockets when they lose..."
Ep1. No lips Ep2. Anakin and Padme as they are led out to be executed. Ep3. When Padme tells Anakin her news. Ep4. Leia kisses her brother "for luck." Ep5. Leia (I like nice men) & Han (I'm nice men) Ep6. Leia (I care for Luke, just not in that way) & Han
Before the Storm, book one of the Black Fleet Crisis trilogy. I haven't read this one before and its pretty good. There is a pre-prequel story line about Luke and Leia's mom (and she apparently isn't from Naboo), which I'm not really paying attention to, but the handling of the new alien culture, the Yevetha, is pretty neat, along the lines of some of Timothy Zahn's writing. That part atleast reminds me a lot of Outbound Flight. I think I'm about three quarters of the way through, and I'm looking forward to Shield of Lies.
