astralvortex: demidog: I just want to congratulate Lexx on one of the best geek trolls I've seen here in a while.

I actually don't think he was trolling. I can see his point with the Dune reference. Just someone who takes his sci-fi to the nth degree. I have only read up to God emperor of Dune but I have heard how horrible any non-Frank Herbert Dune is.

Regarding the criticism of the bounty hunter novel, same can be applied to the Cantina novel, it is nothing but short stories on characters that didn't and wasn't supposed to be fleshed out (with the exception of a few). Just the looks and cool names of the background characters inspired imagination of every kid who was a Star Wars fan. Well, after seeing the movies 20-30 times a piece, I welcome someone adding greater depth to the trilogy with his own artistic license. I can see a purist not wanting anything but the original creator adding to "his" universe.

Either my assumption is correct or Lexx is George Lucas's fark handle. Damn that megalomaniac troll so much...


I disagree. I would argue that anyone who's enough of a Star Wars fan to even know about the extended universe would also know at least some of the names of the other in-movie Bounty Hunters. Also, this sort of thing would be very similar to what I would do if I wanted to geek troll.

GBB: Oznog: Foreground My Ass: This text is now purple: DamienC: They're all bounty hunters, and most of them are on the bridge of the Executor in one scene from Empire Strikes Back. Boushh is the bounty hunter that Leia disguised herself as in Return of the Jedi.

/still have all the action figures somewhere...

The Empire didn't believe in guard rails, did it?

Shame, too, consider that allowed both Luke's escape and the Emperor's demise.

They solved it by Return,...Vader did have to pick the farker up and throw him over....

But why put your "office" beside a bottomless pit to begin with? The air conditioning situation alone must be terrible. There's no way to control the temp with the updraft/downdraft of a HUGE BOTTOMLESS PIT right there.

These poor guys had the worst situation for railings. Ain't a lot of clearance here. You push yourself away from the bench to go to the can and you could slip right off. And there's a 15-ft diameter DEATH RAY BEAM right behind you. Dear god, why??? Was a windowed control room too much to ask? Is industrial control technology not advanced enough in the future that you can't pull the firing lever for the giant superlaser from a location other than BESIDE THE FREAKIN BEAM PATH??


It was UNDER CONSTRUCTION! That was just a test lever to make sure of functionality. When it was done, it would have been a big double lever in the control room like the original.

They hadn't installed railings (or for that matter, floors) in many of the areas so that the hoverplatforms could move large objects between floors without using the elevators.

Come on, man! Use your imagination! It's SCIENCE fiction!

AverageAmericanGuy: Underabridge: Star Trek sucks.

The bounty hunters named in the submission title are from Star Wars, not from Star Trek. You should think before you post, you idiot.


New Meme is New.

Lexx: I'm sorry, WHO are those other characters? I recognized Boba Fett but...

That was the rest of the lineup in Star Wars Empire Strikes Back on the bridge of the Executor.

I'd like to see the look on the OSHA inspectors face that gets a hold of the "Investigate the Empire for unsafe working conditions" complaint.

I have a feeling the Empire would tell them where to go with it, and OSHA would, for once, totally side on the side of the employer!

Hyppy: Lexx: //extended Star Wars universe isn't canon, so don't reference it

Oh, and "canon" is defined as Lucasfilm as "the screenplays, the films, the radio dramas and the novelizations." So yeah, there's that, too...


The Holocron (Official Canon as put forth by Lucas) is divided into 5 levels (in order of precedence): G-canon, T-canon, C-canon, S-canon, and N-canon.

G-canon is absolute canon; the movies (their most recent release), the scripts, the novelizations of the movies, the radio plays, and any statements by George Lucas himself. G-canon overrides the lower levels of canon when there is a contradiction. Within G-canon, many fans follow an unofficial progression of canonicity where the movies are the highest canon, followed by the scripts, the novelizations, and then the radio plays.

T-canon refers to the canon level comprising only the two television shows: Star Wars: The Clone Wars and the Star Wars live-action TV series. Its precedence over C-Level canon was confirmed by Chee.

C-canon is primarily composed of elements from the Expanded Universe including books, comics, and games bearing the label of Star Wars. Games and RPG sourcebooks are a special case; the stories and general background information are themselves fully C-canon, but the other elements such as character/item statistics and gameplay are, with few exceptions, N-canon.

S-canon is secondary canon; the story itself is considered non-continuity, but the non-contradicting elements are still a canon part of the Star Wars universe. This includes things like the online roleplaying game Star Wars: Galaxies and certain elements of a few N-canon stories. (This includes the Ewok movies)

N-canon is non-canon. "What-if" stories (such as stories published under the Star Wars: Infinities label), crossover appearances (such as the Star Wars character appearances in Soulcalibur IV), game statistics, and anything else directly contradicted by higher canon ends up here. N-canon is the only level that is not considered official canon by Lucasfilm. A significant amount of material that was previously C-canon was rendered N-canon by the release of Episodes I-III. (This includes the Star Wars Christmas Special)

I assume that someone, somewhere out there, must be categorizing all of the Leia/Boba, Biggs/Chewy, and Vader/Ewok [NC][MMM] lemon fics and fanart into some sort of deranged Z-canon, as well.

Would it be nicknamed Order 34?
