I hosted a TFD on this.

Either Luke trained for about a week, or it took the Falcon about 6 months without Hyperdrive to get from detaching from the Imperial Cruiser to Cloud City, with the Fett in tow.

The latter would explain the time needed for Luke's proficiency to back-flip over logs & levitate crap, as well as to explain the decent pre-planning Vader had in order to ambush Han & Leia at Bespin.

What he said. Basically, a very, very short period sometime between 0-4 ABY. (new window).

Narrowing a bit, sometime in 3 ABY, according to this. (new window)

Daghoba == Day go by.

So the answer is One Day.

It's George Lucas, remember.

The answer, per Obi-Wan and Yoda, is, "Not long enough."

He needed at least six months to learn to use his lightsaber well enough to kill Superman.

Tnanks for clearing that up. I thought it had to do with Italians.

Sorry, but much of my appreciation for Star Wars in general went away the moment I found out that Georgie had named the droids Artoo-Detoo and See-Threepio.

Give. Me. A. Friggin'. Break.

I think he was there for a few thousand parsecs.

he was too busy molesting the moisture collectors

Well let's see:

He used the Force.

He picked up a box.

He lifted some rocks.

He stood on his head.


I'm going to say about 13 weeks.

40 days.

Luke is a Jesus figure. Yoda represents God the Father. Obiwan is the Holy Spirit.

When Luke has his hand cut off, he cries "Eli! Lama Sabachtani!?", as he is being tempted by the dark side of Darth "Satan" Vader. He was hanged onto the bottom of cloud city for three days before he was brought back to life.
 
2008-03-11 01:39:59 PM
He stayed until he got tired of all the orifices built into R2-D2.
 
2008-03-11 01:55:01 PM
The NY Times had a pretty cool timeline for the entire series. Dunno if it got into that much detail.

My question has always been "What did Han Solo do with the reward money"?

Two banthas at the same time.

Paid someone to help him work on his under-the-table quick draw.

He went back to Tatooine and bought a new hyperdrive for the Falcon from some weird blue insect-like alien.

Not long enough! Yoda was upset when he left... you never make Yoda upset.

"How does Superman fly faster? I get that he can fly, I accept that. I just want to know how he flies faster. It's the only part I don't understand. What, does he have different settings? "Oh this is my cruising speed when I one arm it with a biatch." I just want some nerd to come up to me after the show "Yeah well when the planet exploded..." and then I'll tell you what a vagina feels like."

Thank you. Thank you.

Jebus took 3 days so it took Luke about 30 minutes.
45 if you watch the extended version.

The parsec is a unit of length, not time.

/just sayin

What is a day/week/month on Dagobah anyway? Unless it happened to have the same orbit/rotational speed as Earth, it could be anything.

And interstellar travel? They could be using anything for time increments.
 
2008-03-11 03:19:56 PM
Yeah Sure: "How does Superman fly faster? I get that he can fly, I accept that. I just want to know how he flies faster. It's the only part I don't understand. What, does he have different settings? "Oh this is my cruising speed when I one arm it with a biatch." I just want some nerd to come up to me after the show "Yeah well when the planet exploded..." and then I'll tell you what a vagina feels like."

I always thought it was sort of like squeezing some internal muscle, like when you take a dump. You can either let your sphincter relax and jsut sort of let it slide out, or you can squeeze hard and make it shoot into the toilet with an audible 'plop' into the water.

hiiamchris: The parsec is a unit of length, not time.

Yeah, we know. Han Solo's a little slow on it, though.
 
2008-03-11 03:21:00 PM
Stopped reading after this:

Now, of course, a month of training to be a Jedi seems just silly after watching Eps 1-3... Let's dismiss that for a second.


Never bring up Eps 1-3 in a serious Star Wars discussion.

AHHH. hate when that happens.
 
2008-03-11 03:21:17 PM
I think he trained for 4 parsecs.

Because a parsec is a measurement of time, right?
 
2008-03-11 03:21:52 PM
Funbags: What is a day/week/month on Dagobah anyway? Unless it happened to have the same orbit/rotational speed as Earth, it could be anything.

Obviously, the answer would be in units of Coruscant Days, just like how time is described elsewhere in the books.

And, FYI, Coruscant shares a similar notion of hours and days and years are with Earth

26 minutes.

Clearly we should recreate the scenario and see how it plays out.
 
2008-03-11 03:22:49 PM
How long did it take the sand people to chow down on the crispy Uncle Owen and Aunt Beru "beef jerky"?
