(Tor.com)   Some waste their lives seeking to cure heart disease, explore the mysteries of the universe, or invent new and exciting sex toys, but this gentleman focuses on the important questions: What if every "human" in Star Wars was really a kind of bee?   (tor.com) divider line 23

Then I guess Darth Maul turned into Eric the half a bee.

What a waste of time article.  They should be analyzing the possibility of Master Luminara getting freaky...

Please. Bee serious.

So does that mean my Bee Movie crossover fanfiction is canon or does it join all the stuff in the Expanded Universe memory hole?

Some days I really hate the internet.

I first read it as "a kind of beer". And had some thoughts about it.
But I won't share them with you.

This means SNL is canon.

I read his treatise for 10 seconds, long enough to know that the guys not insane, which would have been at least interesting.

Sol 3?  That's Star Trek's planet naming convention, not Star Wars.

Ugh, this is just another variant of the "there's not enough women in the new Star Wars movie" articles that have been floating around.

i thought it was, at least, an original take on Star Wars.

/Needs to get out more

Hate to break it to the author, but the majority of bees are female.  Only the drones are male.  So the majority of the cast would need to be female for the theory to float.  They need to pick out some other social insect that's male bias to model their theory upon.

Gah, they don't necessarily have to be "sentient hive insects, organized around a single queen, a handful of fertile males, and a horde of infertile female soldiers. For parsimony's sake, let's assume that Force sensitivity in this species is possessed by fertile males and females, and that male actors used to represent non-Force sensitive characters are actually representing infertile females. "

If they were bees, Anakin Skywalker's virgin birth wouldn't have been such a big deal, as bees are capable of reproducing parthenogenetically.

And there are eusocial mammals: naked mole rats, and Damaraland mole rats.  The latter have a social structure in which there is one reproductive mated pair (the male is dominant to the female) who are dominant to the non-reproductive members of the colony.  If this were the case with the SW universe, you don't have to make the dubious assertion that all those non-Force sensitive males are trannies.

There was a story somewhere in the EU that explained that humans arrived in the Star Wars galaxy from Earth's future, via a wormhole that tunneled into the past or some such.

/Guess that's not canon anymore...

That smells about as "canon" as Splinter of the Mind's Eye*.


* a story which, for the record, I love

This was stupid. Typical "lets make an assumption, however silly, and run with it"

Also ignores all the soon to be nuked canon which contradict the idea of han hives.

Star Wars populated by bees....that's a honey of an idea.

I guess you may know that worker bees are all females.  The drones (males) are there only to
impregnate the queen; after that, the workers sting them to death and kick them out of the hive.
I think Cameron Diaz has optioned this for the "Bee Movie" sequel.
