    Wow, that's a great question. I know they are called the Cantina Band, but I cannot tell you what species they are.


    They are called "Figrin D'an and the Modal Nodes". Figrin D'an is their lead.

    I need to bring this back for a minute because I have a question that I need an answer to. In "Return of the Jedi" Luke asks Leia the following question.

    Luke: Leia, do you remember your mother, your real mother?
    Leia: Just a little bit. She died when I was very young.

    Was Luke asking her about her mother on Alderan, or Padme Amidala?

    This is a question I've been wondering myself. I'm not even sure if it is really answered.

    I think her step-mom was killed along with Bail when the planet was destroyed by the Death Star, but Leia was the same age as Luke then.

    But Padme did die when she was very young, seconds old actually. So it would be odd for a new born baby to remember her mother. Maybe it was with a connection of the Force that she remember her mother, like a mother-daughter thing. Just like Luke has a father-son connection with Anakin.

    That's a great theory actually. The only other explanation was that her adopted mother, the woman who was with Senator Organa, died within a year or two of her birth, and we just don't know it. I like your theory because Leia told Luke that she somehow always knew that she was Luke's sister, and it makes you wonder if they could use the force to figure out that Padme was their real mother. Also, I'm surprised that Luke never asked Darth Vader about his mother.

    I hold the theory that Breha died when Leia was a child. Leia has stated that she was raised by Bail's 3 sisters. So that kinda of says something. But, it is never clearly stated. However, Luke DID ask about her real mother. Now, I would say that Leia had a special connection with Padme. She could be remembering a feeling of the Force. That being said, it is still not known. Breha Organa could have very well died in 0 BBY with Alderaan. But if that was so, how come she didnt help raise Leia, and Tia, Rouge and Celly had to do it? Hmmm... great question to raise my friend.

    Here's another question. What's the different between the Separatists and the Trade Federation?

    Good question. The Trade Federation had been in place for about 300 years when we saw it in Episode I. They are just really a commerce based operation. They had a big private military. They were just bascially a corporation, but on a galactic scale. The Seperatists are otherwise known as the CIS or Confederacy of Independent Systems. They wanted to over throw the Republic and become the government. They felt like the Republic was corrupt and people werent being heard. Now, for your original question, the CIS was a movement, the Trade Federation was a private company. It joined the Separatists due to many reasons, one of them being the Republic passed a law to tax all trade routes to the Outer Rim and such. Nute Gunray put his support behind the CIS in exchange for Padme Amidala's life.

    Here is a question for everyone. I always ask my friends with this one when they challenge me. I want to get this thread up and kicking again.

    What are the odds of successfully navigating an astroid field?

    Lacking another name, you are correct, sir.

    This one requires a bit of thought: Judging by the canon Skywalker family, midichlorians appear to be different from other organelles in what way?

    A. They have their own DNA.

    B. They are silicon-based.

    C. They use L-sugars and D-amino acids.

    D. They are inherited through the male line.
