This is an excert from Hyper Space "The new Jedi starfighter is designed with a removable cockpit. The oval-shaped module detaches from the frame of the ship to facilitate cockpit filming. It rests on a manually operated gimbal, providing some tilt and rocking motion for the ship. A light is mounted on a curving frame above it. The light slides along the curving track, providing a rotating light source to make it look like the cockpit spins from side to side.
This single cockpit will be used for all the Jedi starfighters seen in this film, including the vessels piloted by Anakin, Obi-Wan Kenobi and Plo Koon. Today, an ill-fated Jedi is getting blasted from the sky."
I'm guessing from this that Plo Koon dies in a space battle not a light sabre fight. At first I wanted all the Jedi to go out with their lightsabres but a few Jedi going out in a really cool dog-fight would be brilliant. But who's attacking them? Droid fighters, a new alien race, Dooku or Anakin? I'm getting excitted!!!
