    Okay, here's one that's a little difficult: At least this many galaxies are at least partially explored as of Episode II.

    A. 1

    B. 2

    C. 3

    D. 4

    Im pretty sure 3. The galaxy, the Rishi Maze, and the one shown in the Jedi archives in Ep II. I think its called the second satellite galaxy. That's as of Episode II.

    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.

    This is a very tricky question. I would say the answer your looking for is A and D. But if one said D, they would be wrong. A is correct, from a certain point of view. Midi-Chlorians are microscopic life forms. They live in a symbiotic state within all living things cells. So it could be true that they have their own DNA. Now if someone said D, they would be wrong. A living example of this is Jacen and Jaina Solo. The Skywalker blood runs through their veins, but it is not from a male carrier. It comes from Leia. And those 2 are VERY strong in the Force. So, I think the best answer you listed is A. But, it is never clearly stated. We do know, however, that they are living things.

    Edited for spelling error.

    Actually, mitochondria and chloroplasts have their own DNA (a possible etymology of midichlorian). But I'm glad everyone figured out that B and C were distractors, since nothing in the Star Wars universe refers to their metabolism.

    I was only referring to the Skywalker family in the movies, in which case the answer would be D. (Males sacrifice our organelles so that our organelles don't try to outcompete the female's organelles. And then there are slime molds, some of which have more than ten sexes, and a 1 sacrifices its organelles when mating with anything, a 2 with anything but a 1, a 3 with anything but a 1 or 2, etc.) Of course, in the EU, clearly, the Solo kids have their mother's midichlorians, not their father's. But an overused plot device is "descended from Jedi", which the prequels completely blew out of the water.

    While on the topic of the heritability of the Force, one thing that's bugged me since I saw Revenge of the Sith was Yoda saying the children would be strong in the Force with parents like Anakin and Padme. How the hell know this you would, Yoda? I mean, considering that marry the Jedi do not, hmm?

    Perhaps the Jedi don't marry, but where do the padawan's come from? Somebody in their family has to have some Jedi knowledge or the potential to become one though never took the opportunity.

    I always thought they were just naturally Force users, or they are decendents from Jedi that lived hundreds, if not thousands of years ago.

    Back to the Q&A:

    Which colors are the names of Rebel squadrons, and which model starfighter does each squadron use? (For instance, you would reply "Red Squadron - X-Wing.")

    Good. (Though Gold Squadron also used the Falcon in Jedi. Definitely a different unit, though, since all the Y-wings in A New Hope were destroyed.) Two down, three to go.

    Aside: When I played X-wing, the Y-wing was my least-favorite ship, partially because the B-wing outclasses it on everything (except the B-wing presents a larger profile).

    Actually, in A New Hope, all but 1 Y-Wing is blown up.

    Anyway....

    Red Squadron - X-Wings

    Grey Squadron- Y-Wings and B-Wings

    Green Squadron- A-Wings

    Also, with each squadron, they also contain more then one fighter class. Like Red Squad had more then just X-Wings (Red 3 was in an A-Wing, and Red 2 was a Y-Wing in the Battle of Endor) It just might be that X-Wings made up most of the squadron. Same with the others.

    In the movies, five:

    Darth Plagueis (mentioned)

    Darth Sidioius

    Darth Maul

    Darth Tyranus

    Darth Vader

    Though to be technical, "Darth" is a title. So it would be like saying Luke Skywalker changed his name to Commander before Empire.

    Here's a couple questions.

    Who was Lando's co-pilot in the Battle of Endor?

    Who was Green and Grey leaders during that battle?

    Lando's co-pilot I want to say was Bib Fortuna.
    Green Leader I think was Wicket, and Grey leader I'm drawing a blank

    Ill answer one of them. Lando's copilot was the Sullustan Nien Nunb. Ill guess at the other. Is Green leader Arvel Crynyd? And Grey leader.....I want to say Kin Kian. I read it somewhere before so they may not be spelled right.

    You're right about his co-pilot and Green leader.

    Gray leader was Horton Salm, but Kin Kian was his gunner, so he was co-Gray leader, actually. (They were in the Y-wing at the start "Gray leader standing by." Also the Y-Wing that breaks from the group inside the Death Star.)

    Ah yes, you are right. I remember now that he was the gunner. I guess I was beside myself there for a minute. I got some right so I guess I can ask one now.

    How many repulsor pods were there in the Senate Building of the Old?

    The question is again:

    How many repulsor pods were there in the Senate Building of the Old?

    I know brodoin knows this one. Lets see if anyone else can get it. Id like for this thread to keep going.
