sfg, you're right.  The Shuttle does not use any engine power when it's landing.  After it fires it's Orbital Manuevering thrusters to degrade its orbit for reentry, it's basically a glider.


It's really cool when it lands, all you hear are the sonic booms and then nothing.

This is a really tough question.  Everything is my favorite for different reasons.

All my vintage stuff, because it's what started me on this little frenzy and are my favorite childhood toys.

All my original framed movie posters up in my living room (now that I have all six!)

My MR Obi-Wan sabers, just because they look nice on my desk.

Also I really like my "oddball stuff"--The SW Nascar cars I have, the film trailers, Darth Tater, C-1, C-3 and insider passes (Need to get the C-2 ones) and the Disney items Jedi Mickey, Darth Mickey and the star tours pass, just because they're not the standard action figure n such have a great appeal to me.

I caught a bunch of launches and a few landings when I was going to school at UCF in Orlando.  Truly amazing to see for yourself, tv doesn't do it any justice.

Ryan,

I have the miniseries on Dvd....season one is not out yet, but I have a bunch of the episodes on either tape or tivo.

It's going to interesting how they bring Amanda Tapping back to the team, but the writing of this show has never been bad.  I really like the knew bad guys in SG-1.

Good work Kevin.  You've gotten past the most difficult part of a diet/lifestyle change...the first 6 weeks.

Star Wars Universe / Revenge of the Sith made all EU wrong!
« on: August 8, 2005, 01:22 AM »
Well, from Heir of the Empire on anyway.

Yoda said that Qui-Gon Jinn found a path to imortality, so basically, anyone who learned this from him (Yoda, Obi-Wan and in a round about way Anakin) would be around forever.

In Heir to the Empire, Obi-Wan appears to Luke Skywalker in a dream and says that the bonds between him and Luke was going away and he would not be able to communicate with him anymore thus leaving Luke on his own to restore the Jedi order to the galaxy.

Bull-****.

If we go by what ROTS puts forth, Yoda, Obi-Wan, Anakin and even Qui-gon could be around to advise Luke and the other Jedi in all the problems of what the Jedi should do, act and whatnot throughout every EU story post ROTJ!

Now I'm not going on some crazy book burning crusade or anything, personally there are many EU stories I really enjoy, but this little tidbit's been kind of bugging me lately.  Granted none of the authors knew that this was how GL was going to establish how there could be Jedi spirits running around in the OT, but they could've made it possible to communicate with them, and possibly even train the technique to future Jedi.

Think of how different the NJO series would've been if we could've seen Anakin Solo again?

Oh well, I just thought I'd share my thoughts on this and hear what the rest of you would have to say on the subject.  :)

Welcome to the boards Dorito.

What Master Replicas have you added to your collection?  Mini-Sabers, LE items, FX Sabers or are you shelling out for the Studio scale? :o
