I don't hate the SE's I guess.  I don't like a lot.  I'd rather have that Jabba DB94 scene than not have it though, for some reason.  I enjoy it.  And hey...  ASP-7 revolutionized Star Wars.  :D

I agree.  The DB94 Jabba scene was supposed to be there to begin with, but the budget/technology wasn't there to do the SFX right so kudos to Lucas for having the heart to cutting the scene and adding more to Greedo's (I believe that was the case, could be wrong) dialogue to show how dire the situation with Han was.  But George had the tech and budget in the 90s to do Jabba right, so I see no problem with adding him in the SE then.  It's just that he should have went back and edited some of Greedo's dialogue so it didn't seem repetitious with the "dumping cargo at the sign of Imperials" line that they both shared.  But, this is chat for the SE threads  ;)

The show is fun though.  The poor Ughnaught was bottle-rocketed by the AT-DP.  Still don't care much for the main protagonists, but maybe with his Sith training, Ezra will somewhat mature and become likeable.

Funny how the cannon has switched a bit.  I remember from Jesse's favorite game, among one or two others IIRC, there's a mission to grab a new advanced fighter and it's the A-wings. In Rebels, they've had A-wings a while and are now salvaging clone war era bombers and making a deal for the B-wing.

Overall, I've liked the first episode and I'm looking forward to more...my oldest loves the show...I just wish Maul had stayed dead after TPM.  Hell, I wish Rebels was more distanced from TCW cartoon, but I don't need to be repeating gripes here.  :D
Peacekeeper, when it absolutely, positively has to be nuked in 30 minutes or less.  Or the next nuke's free!

The A-Wings in FC aren't, iirc, anything special that I remember?  I haven't played in so long though, but still have the strategy guide here somewhere and the cut scenes saved somewhere for a customizing ref.

As the EU goes, the A-Wing was around LONG before ANH in some capacity already.  It was the retconned into the ICS books as the Arrowhead Fighter (basically A-Wing ancestors that looked just like them), and that they were at Yavin...  This jived with X-Wing (PC Game) and Rogue Squadron and such.  The B-Wing wasn't really changed much either.  It's still the project Shantipole thing more or less...  They just wove it into Rebels, and added their own stuff that doesn't really change anything.  Also it's still a prototype type deal, and seems on pace for its introduction as a production ship before the Battle of Hoth (roughly). 

I should check that Force Commander guide out on the A-Wings...  It's possible, as with all types of military weapon, it's just a weapons or shield or other enhancement too...  It's always easy to crowbar that in without it really being contradictory. 

The Y-Wings in the episode actually don't even appear to be the same ones from TCW but may actually be them fitting MORE EU into the new "canon" (or, new EU Disney's making), as those ships REALLY looked more like the up-armored Y-Wing from the Incredible Cross Sections which pre-dated the Clone Wars ships, and which helped cover up the fact the Clone Wars ships were too big to be the Rebel Fighters, actually, if you're going strictly on visual comparison.  They sure appear to have the more tight-fitting armor plating though, like the ICS armored Y-Wing design had.

EDIT: Yeah this piqued my curiosity so I looked into it...  Someone just promised a group of A-Wings if they helped him or something.  It's a later mission (rebellion one) and those ones were so inanely frustrating I think I blocked them out, but yeah they actually show A-Wings in Rebel hangars when the main character defects long before that A-Wing mission and stuff.

Oddly, the old EU actually kept that stuff sort of straight. :)  A lot of other stuff they couldn't and Disney obviously can't keep it (or at least not all of it) and make $ on the investment and stuff, but it's funny when you look at some really small details of EU and they kept a lot of it in order...  They seemed to almost goof up bigger stuff more often.

Boredom + insomnia = me finding this image...

30 ships, 8 Y-Wings among those.

They trail off into the distance, and as they get further back, it gets hard to see, so I'd say it's slightly open that MORE could be there, but hey, I'm fine with 30 too and the base holding a ton back in reserve to escort an assumed mass evac of the base ala Hoth anyway and thus there's like a billion Rebel Pilots at the ceremony.  Maybe that's all the ships the base had even?  Who knows...  though that now makes me wonder how many are visible in the hangar when Luke gets back?  Hmmm

So if the rebels knew the DS was on the way, why not evac the base right away? Why was Leia standing there on the planet instead of on a blockade runner? She did the same stupid thing again in TFA. 

Speaking of TFA, Leia had the plans to the original DS for thirty years. Why not build a version of the DS to use against the First Order if they attacked her?

Leia was vital to hanging around the control room and looking concerned.

Not in the budget. Not enough man power. The Resistance is like 100 people, all unpaid volunteers.

Yeah I can see the DSs being made via unscrupulous means...  So that makes sense to me.  As far as Leia's presence I can see her refusing to leave and the majority of personnel off on shuttles and transports at some rally point.

She didn't seem to do anything but maybe she did or it's just stoic resolve to go down with the ship (or moon) as the saying goes.

She could have looked concern on a ship and commanded the ships from there.
