    Sabe was sent to Tatooine to attempt to free Anakin's mother alongside Tonra. So, it is possible we may find out other people were sent by Amidala to attempt to free Shmi. It is 100% possible the ship Anakin flew could have gone to Tatooine.

    Was a good episode of course. Felt like it even would of been a good 1st episode of Mandolorian S3.

    Doesn't really help the series as whole as it already felt disjointed with the flashbacks. Curious to see what's in store for the last 2 episodes.

    That's a fantastic shout, will probably find that out in Kenobi.

    I can just see Din catching up with Luke and him figuring out it was his Dad's first ship.

    Which also gives me slight hope of seeing Luke in an X-Wing again some day. Which again, is fan service and I don't care because yes please give it to me.

    Eh… I don’t think we ever saw him flying one in Episode 3 and it’d be weird to swap his ship for a fighter that was desperately needed against the new Empire. Especially if he just ditched it in the sand. It’d be a fun meta thing, but overall it feels hard to truly connect. Hell, just linking it as Anakin’s from Ep 1 to Obi Wan would be tough. But, this is Star Wars. Vader built C3PO. So any stupid connection is possible.

    By the time Kenobi went into hiding the purge was under way and the temple had been raided. It's possible all the Jedi Starfighters were destroyed, that or the docking rings around Coruscant were taken out of comission so there was no hyperdrive functionality.

    There's ways to spin it that he needed a ship, guess we'll just wait and see.

She is not consistent.
    While it is a contradiction that is kinda a point about cults in general. Sometimes cults look at historical or individuals of legend and view them as members of the cult. Even if those people contradict the laws of the cult. Particularly when the subject of that legend was the original wielder of a weapon of legend and myth. The cornerstone of the religion if you will. Cults are not meant to be places of logic.

    He wasn’t flying a Jedi Starfighter when he brought Amidala to have the twins. All that was the end of Episode 3 basically. He COULD have taken a N1 when he left, seems a weird thing to deprive Organa of though.

    Why do you assume that bombs being dropped from a galaxy spanning empire capable of blowing up planets are at least equivalent to low-grade nukes?

    Assuming TIE Bombers routinely hit targets with all kinds of tech-babble shield in the franchise, shields designed to whether all kinds of kinetic and energy impacts, we can assume their yields are at least on up their with nukes. Again, bolts of plasma are common in this universe as rocks are in ours.


    Its obvious the Empire didn't just glass the planet from orbit because they wanted to (and did) strip the planet of all its resources. Hence a more conventional air/ground Invasion.

    I don't Organa was really planning on fighting then. I'm thinking it's probably a good 10 years before fighting really started to pop off. Also Aldarran had enough resources to stand on its own. Pawning off one old starfighter would have been fine.

    Just brainstorming how they would explain it being the same fighter Anakin used. Not any less cheesy than CP3PO being a droid built by Anakin then later a player in the defeat the Empire...and again the final defeat of Palpatine. We know the odds of such things are unrealistic by they check out in SW.

    If the choice is between one of the last Jedi surviving and a good but mass-produced and fungible starfighter, I don't think this is weird at all.

    Could make strategic sense to take a Naboo ship, too: it's registered to a backwater system in the middle of nowhere; it's not a ship known to be used by Jedi; and it's only a single-seat starfighter, so a relatively minor threat (as opposed to say an entire frigate or whatever). Add to that its relatively high performance for its size, and it makes quite a suitable getaway vehicle.

    Seemed an odd choice to have a full Mando episode in a Boba show with only 2 episodes left, even if I enjoyed it.

    Well, that's probably the reason there are 7 episodes instead of only 6.
    Isms bore me. I think they are only brought by people who seek to marginalize the potential of each ism to provide something meaningful. Name it, Capitalism, Socialism, even Communism-- all contain something of merit towards structuring a society. The biggest flaw in human history has been the need to take the worst of a system along with the best. It doesn't have to be all of one and none of another.

    I thought the episode was going to be like a new comic by Marvel where they have spider man show up to boost it up a bit. I didn’t expect the whole episode to be taken over. I expect the Mandalorian S3 to start with episode 2 now.

    A plus for connecting pieces in the universe, but a negative for Boba Fett the series. People will talk only about seeing Din and enjoying that, and it having fuck all to do with Boba Fett. If they stick the landing on this series I’ll be pleasantly surprised. I’m expecting an unsatisfying, unearned ending.

    Says something about Book of Boba Fett when its best episode is just an episode of The Mandalorian shuffled in!

    Exactly, hahaha. Dont get me wrong boba is cool and I love to see him as a crime boss, but it just feels like he's meandering about being a loser doing nothing interesting, lol. The flashbacks were interesting but he's done nothing of value in the present.

    Weird that mando has gotten more character development than boba in his own show

    Centerpoint wasn’t a dyson sphere.

    This.

    But Iokath (in SWTOR) is believed to be a dyson sphere. So you could argue the technology exist in the Star Wars universe.

    You could even argue that Starkiller Base is a modified dyson sphere since it drains a star’s energy to power its primary weapon.
