When the two bureaucrats evacuate to Aquilae from the space fortress, they find one of the hidden containers near their landing site. They fight over it and are captured by the General.
Behind the scenesEdit
Aura spice takes the place of the gold hidden inside staves of wood in Akira Kurosawa's Hidden Fortress, the immediate inspiration for Episode IV. It also becomes a minor plot point in future drafts, resurfacing as "spice" or Auraspice in the second draft, and becoming a substance smuggled by Han Solo.
