    Welcome to this weeks issue of the News Flash.  This week we will be looking at some of the answers to those burning questions about Star Wars that Lieutenant Obi  submitted to us a month ago.  I'm so happy that both Lake and Riddler responded, and Hunter has also volunteered to talk about the answers if your still confused.

    Also, has anyone noticed that the banners on this page are linked to a site?  Check it out.

"I have you now!" ~Darth Vader



Have you checked out the log boards lately?  Not to sure where this originated from, but I'd like to thank him/her in advance for using it.  I'd love to give you credit... so speak up.  Hope you all enjoy it!  

A furious light saber duel is under way. DARTH VADER is backing LUKE SKYWALKER toward the end of the gantry. A quick move by Vader, chops off Luke's hand! It goes spinning off into the ventilation shaft. Luke backs away. He looks round, but realizes there's nowhere to go but straight down.

DARTH VADER: "Obi Wan never told you what happened to your father."

LUKE: "He told me enough! He told me you killed him!"

DARTH VADER: "No! I am your father!"

LUKE: "No, it's not true! It's impossible."

DARTH VADER: "Search your feelings; you know it to be true."


DARTH VADER: "Yes, it is true and you know what else? You know that brass droid of yours?"

LUKE: "Threepio?"

DARTH VADER: "Yes, Threepio, I built him when I was seven years old."

LUKE: "No."

DARTH VADER: "Seven years old? And what have you done? Look at yourself, no hand, no job, and couldn't even levitate your own ship out of the swamp."

LUKE: "I worked hard on that moisture farm."

DARTH VADER: "What? Hauling buckets? I spent my childhood as a slave then *real* Jedi training, not 'a few days in the swamp with Yoda'."

LUKE: "I destroyed your precious Death Star!"

DARTH VADER: "When you were 20! When I was 10, I single-handedly destroyed a Trade Federation Droid Control ship!"

LUKE: "Well, it's not my fault."

DARTH VADER: "Oh, here we go. 'Poor me, my father never gave me what I wanted for my birthday, boo hoo, my daddy's the Dark Lord of the Sith.. waahhh wahhh!'"

LUKE: "Shut up."

DARTH VADER: "You're a slacker! By the time I was your age, I had exterminated the Jedi knights!"

LUKE: "I used to race my T-16 through Beggar's Canyon!"

DARTH VADER: "Oh, for the love of the Emperor … 10 years old, winner of the Boonta Eve Open. Only human to ever fly a Pod Racer, right here baby!"

Luke looks down the shaft. Takes a step toward it.

DARTH VADER: "I was wrong. You're not my kid. I don't know whose you are, but you sure ain't mine."

Luke takes a step off the platform, hesitates, then plunges down the shaft.

Darth Vader looks after him.

DARTH VADER: "And get a haircut!"


1) If Darth Sidious is Palpatine, how can he be in two places at one time?

2) Is Darth Tyranus/Count Dooku the Jedi Sifo-Dyas who ordered the Clone Army created?

3) When Vader "died" at the end of "Return of the Jedi" why didn’t his suit disappear like Obi-Wan & Yoda’s bodies did when they died?

4) Why didn’t Anakin/Vader not know he had a daughter, and that it was Leia?

5) Where does Leia get the Bountyhunter suit she is wearing at Jabba’s palace when she turns Chewbacca over to Jabba?

6) Who was the Jedi that deleted Kamino from the Archives keeping it a secret?
Does Padme die in Episode 3?

7) Why does Threepio always get the worst end in every situation?

8) What happened to everybody after Return of the Jedi?

9) Why is it so hard to return to the light side from the dark side?

10) Will there be an Episode 7, 8, & 9 or more after?

11) What happened to Kamino after Episode 2 & 3?
