The Prequel Trilogy / The Slaughter of the Padawans
« on: January 17, 2003, 09:14 AM »
BEN Hmm. To protect you both from the Emperor, you were hidden from your father when you were born. The Emperor knew, as I did,  if Anakin were to have any offspring, they would be a threat to him. That is the reason why your sister remains safely anonymous.
Let's say Luke and Leia are not born yet, however it is known by Palpatine that Padme is pregnant.  She is carrying Anakin's offspring which have the potential to be very powerful in the use of the Force.
The SECOND DRAFT of the Adventures of Starkiller dated January 28, 1975 contains the original prophesy of the one who will bring balance to the force.

"...And in the time of greatest despair there shall come a savior, and he shall be known as: THE SON OF THE SUNS."
Journal of the Whills, 3:127
Lucas' original idea of the Star Wars Saga was almost a Biblical type book The Journal of Whills in which a legendary character The Son of the Sons will be born and save the galaxy...much like Jesus saved the world from sin according to Christian religion.  The Son of the Suns was heard being chanted in both The Phantom Menace and Return of the Jedi, during the celebration scenes, so it is an official part of canon in the Star Wars Saga. OK, with me so far?  

There are couple of ways to go with this, is the Son of the Suns Luke???  Or is it the Chosen One, Anakin?  So does The Son of the Suns = The Chosen One.  Or are the two prophecies different.  Looking at them, it appears to be so, if the Son of the Suns prophesy is as stated and the Chosen One stating the One who will bring balance to the Force.  Luke probably is the Savior, the Son of the Suns and Anakin is the Chosen One, the bringer of Balance

So, here is my idea, Luke and Leia are born during the movie, Palpatine senses a threat and his first act as Emperor of the Galaxy is to kill all offspring on Naboo say, much like Herod of the book Matthew 2nd Chapter does to the children of Bethlehem, kills everyone under the age of 2.  This would go a long way to cementing the evilness of the Empire.

Or if the Twins were born before the Start of Episode III, Luke may very well be in training to be a Jedi
QUI-GON : I'm afraid not. Had he been born in the Republic, we would have identified him early, and he would have become Jedi
So perhaps Palpatine's first act will be to wipe out all of the Padawans in the Jedi Temple, an known threat to the Empire.  Somehow, perhaps through the plucky Senator Jar Jar, Obi-Wan/Padme are tipped off to the threat and Luke and Leia are whisked away from the temple before Vader comes in and slaughters the children.

It would not be the first time in the prequels that Biblical paralells are drawn, Anakin's Immaculate conception, the freeing of Slaves etc.  

Will we see Palpatine slaughtering children ala Herod?

Nope he's right, just showing him some tricks on how to keep track of units better ;)

Brad sorry I missed this one...

keeping track of units is a snap

Converting mm to feet

10 mm  * 0.039 in  * 0.0833 ft = 0.033 ft
                       mm                in

What you are doing when converting is multiplying the original number by 1/1

0.039 in = 1 mm ...  0.039 in/1 mm = 1

The easy way to check is to make sure your units cancel on both sides of the equation, so the mm and in cancel above and you are left with ft

Hopefully I am not too late  :-\

If you have any other question feel free to ask, I've had a Semester of Physics at College ;)

I would have really liked to have gotten a Human padawan since most of them were human, but they should be easy to customize

I am almost positive though I have heard that the Original non-Special Edition Trilogy will never be released on DVD...which is what the $30 Bootlegs are ;)

I just threw away all of my High School Physics good times ;)

I am a Chemical Engineer.  I work for some pretty big Chemical Companies as a Consultant..  My company designs Chemical Process systems which go into plants which make intermediaries which are then used to make final products at packaging facilities.  My job entails designing and specifying the components that go into the systems...pumps, reactors, tanks, piping and instrumentation, valves, gauges

If you have seen Robocop where the dude gets eaten by acid...that basically where our stuff goes.  I work with some of the deadliest acids on the planet and so making sure everything is chemically compatible and propely sized and functions right is critical.  I love my job, it is fun and a challenge every day.  There has been a huge slowdown in the Chemical processing community in the US in general the last 4 years so if I continue to do this forever is the real question.

The nice thing is having a ChemE degree means I can work for a ton of different industires...Food, Pharmacuetical, Pulp/Paper, Petroleum, Power Plants etc etc

Yep, I figured I'd bid $27 on a loose set and I won since I'll throw the packaging away anyway, saved some money on a smaller package and shipping to boot.

I agree the Vader is awesome, Maul is OK, the paint on his head is top notch like the other POTJ Split in two Maul was, I don't care so much for his articulation but he is still a good figure.  The Vader alone was worth the price I paid.

JD Sports Forum! / Re:Alright SPORTS fans, name your teams!
« on: January 15, 2003, 03:27 PM »
My choices are the only correct ones :)


Minnesota Vikings (The 2004 Super Bowl Champs)


Minnesota Twins (The 2003 WS Champs)


Minnesota Timberwolves (The 2003 NBA Champs)


Minnesota Wild (The 2003 NHL Champs)

When the North Stars left though I adopted the Avalanche as my NHL team, so they are 1a in my book


The alma mater, the Mighty Minnesota Golden Gophers (2003 Basketball and Repeat Hockey Champs!)

Beyond that I don't really root for anyone, I hate the Packers, Bears and Lions as well as most NY and LA sports teams (except the Yankees)

I also root for the Americans in the Olympics and how can you not root for Tiger Woods every time he tees it up...Tiger Rules
