A Long Time Ago In a Galaxy Far, Far Away.... - Star Wars General Discussion

The droid had a name. He remembered Anakin's name and spent far less time with him. I mean...this is an inconsistency in ANY case and maybe it should be left at that, but in story it could be a strong indication that Shmi hadn't been in his family long and he didn't much care about her.

The droid pushes itself on him and he just kind shrugs and says he doesn't have any use for an etikettt droid until he finds out it can speak the language of some farm equipment and then he decides it can come in. No "Man, isn't that the same one we had through my whole childhood. Didn't it leave with blasted Anakin? Is this a bad omen?"

I don't know the name of my first smartphone, and I had that thing for almost 10 years. If you handed me my exact one, refurbished and completely wiped, I wouldn't know.

Especially if you covered it in gold paint I'm certain I don't remember.

HTC Mogul running Winmo 5. 🤣 (but of course I couldn't tell you if it was my specific phone which is really the point).

But yeah, people in the SW universe have very short memories.

Terrible private investigators, too. Couldn't find Obi Wan Kenobi after he changed his first name and started living next door to his old apprentice's family.

Fair enough. Now try remembering that 22 years after you last saw it.

Arguing that three potentially random numbers and/or letters (3, P, 0, in this case) constitutes a name that a person, in a society that depersonalizes the most likely owners of such names, should remember after more than a decade... seems a stretch.

I don't see 3PO being a problem either way. I have inanimant objects I can id as "mine" based off of wear, dings, damage, serial numbers etc. Meanwhile my friend sometimes walks up to a car from a different manufacturer thinking it his cause it the same color.

This part doesn't bother me either. There was genuinely zero reason to think he'd be on Tatooine. He'd sorta been there once, but he stayed on a ship the whole time and didn't talk to any locals. It almost doesn't count. If I disappear one day and the CIA tries to track me down, they're not going to go looking in some town where my only connection is that I happened to be in the car when my family stopped for gas there 30 years ago.

There's no dedicated Acolyte thread right?

Folks were being dumb in ep1 but I rather liked ep2. The sitter was pretty awesome. I hope the secondary guy gets majorly injured. Bad person just made me think of bad person in the Obi-Wan show. Same motivation, bleh. Still, I like the basic plot. Might have liked the number to be five instead of four.

I watched Ahsoka before watching the two eps. I didn't finish watching Rebels but I thought people would go crazy over Ezra. Hated the ending with Sabine being left behind (I don't care for this subdued Ahsoka, since I only knew the snippy Ahsoka from the early season Clone Wars).

I liked episode 1. Familiar, but establishing a different time period/culture pretty well. I expected a larger role for Carrie Anne Moss, but she did her part really well. The episode felt satisfyingly long.

Well, I didn't expect that. A HasLab Mos Eisley cantina for vintage figures. I guess so all those HasLab ships have a place to stop at for a drink:


Unusually short funding window? Or is this normal and I just didn't pay attention?

It was leaked last month. I'm not surprised because folks have been demanding this for a while - now we'll see whether they put their money where their mouth is. I've already seen the excuses flying: not big enough, not enough stuff included, too expensive, blah blah blah. People seem to forget that Hasbro builds a line around the Haslab, so likely the "missing" items will show up in the future.

I am not saying I hate it. I'm still in the story. But
It's kind of disappointing, yeah? 100 years earlier and this. When exactly were the Jedi doing what they ought to do?

Saw Acolyte ep 3.

It's obvious on what happened. Dumb person. I actually wanted to see the story move forward tho.

Btw, since I didn't watch most of the Clone Wars, the... ladies with magic (Nightsisters?) who appeared in the Ahsoka use the Force? They also created Darth Maul?

The short answer is 'sort of'. The longer answer is sssoooorrrtt ooff that the Nightsisters (and their subservient Nightbrothers) were a clan of 'Force witches' from the planet Dathomir, and Maul was a son of Mother Talzin, who was the leader of the clan. Sidious kidnapped Maul as a child and made him his apprentice when he sensed Maul's potential as a Force user.

So Maul was born a Nightbrother, but it was Sidious who made him Darth Maul.
