Ah....ok, I was wondering who the CSI Droid was a parody of...makes perfect sense now. Ha.
We've definitely seen the Droid Tri-fighters before, they were in the arc where Ventress got betrayed by Dooku. Not sure about the Jedi ships though, seemed familiar somehow.
Agree the writing was weak, their whole investigation was based on someone observed working around the crime scene, which is part of their normal duties anyway? It's not like the guy was an accountant and was just hanging around the hangars for no reason. Total alien profiling! Sure, blame the big freaky cyclops dude. Couldn't have been his improbably hot wife, right?
I don't even get why everyone thought a Jedi was responsible when there wasn't an iota of evidence to indicate this.
The Barriss Offee cameo was cute, but really for me, the coolest thing in the whole freaking episode were those armored enforcer dudes standing in the background in the Cin Drallig scene. WTF were those bad-asses?!?! They looked like some kind of heavy armored Jedi super commandos, or some kind of weird Jedi-esque Royal Guards.
They would have made for one of the coolest action figures ever in this line, IMO.
