You need to asterisk or footnote the new ones Scott, so I can more easily decipher where your money's been going in the past week or two!   ;)
;) Gotcha...although I probably won't be buying any more for a while, the Back to Future sets keep calling my name each time I walk by them, that may be a good Father's Day Present

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 ;)
