Deleted scenesEdit

"Note: The scene with Biggs and Luke (as well as Camie and Fixer) on Tatooine was not cut from the 1977 release, though this is what the official databank at starwars.com would have you believe. This scene was shown only in the original theatrical version of the movie, and was cut when the film was released on VHS. "

Can anyone produce a source to back this up? Basilisk 23:03, 25 March 2006 (UTC)

Actually, that scene never was shown in the original theatric release. The reason for this is because the actress that played the role of Camie (Fixer's girlfriend) at Tosche Station was found to have starred in a few porn films previously, and Lucas made the decision to axe the scene. -Added by David S. Harper (VapeR2G@aol.com)

i would like to point out that the events in the deleted scenes are cannon. Ralok 01:41, 1 June 2006 (UTC)

  • Why is the neutrality of the deleted scenes section disputed? There's nothing in there that even mentions the Empire being bad. --- Lorth Wolf (talk)

Deak and Windy are in the back area playing a game that resembles pool or air-hockey or something, <-- I think that needs some editing.

Question: I seem to remember Luke meeting Biggs in the x-wing hangar prior to the attack on the Death Star. Is this correct? Was that scene first cut in the 1978 re-release and later restored in the special edition? Unsigned comment by 71.114.47.73 (talk • contribs).

  • That's correct. Cut in the original verison and partially added back later. Red leader mentioned Luke's father but that is still left out. -Fnlayson 22:24, 25 March 2007 (UTC)

Rebel activities Edit

I added a couple sentences on Biggs's missions to get the X-wings and R2 units from Empire: Darklighter. I placed that before the Death Star schematics paragraph. I don't have a source that describes that. The order could be switched though. Does anybody know the proper order? -Fnlayson 22:08, 25 February 2007 (UTC)

Possible Force Connection Edit

Has anyone thought of the possibility of a force connection with Biggs, it would seem based on the Empire series of comics, that it is possible, I have no way of contacting anyone that could confirm or deny this but I'd be interested if that was the effect being looked for.

What to do with the BTS Edit

  • I've updated the article with all information from Essential Guide to Characters, Galaxy Guide 3, A New Hope, and X-wing: Rogue Squadron, and sourced most everything. There still needs some sourcing work done on some information, presumably from the Empire comics, which I have no knowledge of. As for the BTS section, I think I've included all the information from the deleted scenes into his Bio that needs to be there. Anything else, I feel, would just be including small, pointless facts that would just be giving a play-by-play of the entire Anchorhead scene. No need for that. That being said, I think the Deleted Scene section needs to stay in some capacity. If not, the pictures need to be re-worked into the article some place.Toprawa and Ralltiir 21:12, 27 October 2007 (UTC)

DS plansEdit

How could he participated in stealing Death Star plans if he joined the Rebellion after the events on Tatooine,when the plans were already stolen???QuiGonJinn 23:41, 29 August 2008 (UTC)QuiGonJinn

  • No, really think about it:
    • 1.In X-Wing the plans which were carried by the pilot, are later transferred to Tantive IV via shuttle Maria.
    • 2.After acquiring the plans Tantive IV was ambushed above Tatooine, Luke saw the battle and went to Anchorhead where he met Biggs, who told him that he intend to join the Rebellion' (That was cut from a New Hope, but later established in Darklighter: Blaze of Glory )
    • So, the pilot who carried the plans is not Biggs. QuiGonJinn 09:53, 7 September 2008 (UTC)QuiGonJinn
  • I was wondering the same thing. The deleted scene and the X-Wing story cannot both be cannon; they are incompatible. --209.98.38.253 14:20, October 16, 2009 (UTC)
    • Actually, if you read the "Darklighter" story, it reveals that Biggs lied to Luke somewhat in that scene on Tatooine. Though he says he is GOING TO join the Rebellion, the story shows that he had already been involved with the Rebellion before that deleted scene takes place. Of all the continuity changes introduced by that comic story, this was the most helpful one. In other words, the deleted scene plays out exactly the same in the comic, but secretly, Biggs is not telling the whole truth to Luke. His mutiny and maybe even that X-wing game story can take place before ANH. --216.20.70.81 20:38, January 11, 2010 (UTC)
      • I've just incorporated this info in the article, and shuffled around the events to reflect this. The Behind the scenes section now mentions it, too. --JMM 16:19, January 12, 2010 (UTC)

Ranks Edit

Biggs was First Mate on the Rand Ecliptic, but the term 'First Mate' is synomous with 'executive officer' and 'first officer', which means that he was second in command. Kilvian was Second Mate which makes him 'second oficer' and third in command. I know its really confusing but that's the way it is. Unsigned comment by 24.27.193.29 (talk • contribs).

According to the 1981 radio drama, Biggs is 'Third Mate' on the ship. Cozmo 07:16, May 22, 2010 (UTC)

Rand Ecliptic Edit

Which story is "higher" rank in canon? WEG's roleplaying material (Galaxy Guide 3: The Empire Strikes Back) or a comic (Empire 9: Darklighter, Part 2)? I haven't read the Galaxy Guide myself but it seems to tell rather different story about the mutiny on the Rand Ecliptic than the comic does. If I understand correctly Derek Klivian's article uses the version from the comic but Biggs's uses the one from Galaxy Guide. Should that be changed one way or other?--Dionne Jinn (Something to say?) 21:50, March 19, 2010 (UTC)

Uniform? Edit

In the ANH novel, Biggs cloth in the deleted scene on Tatooine is described as a uniform. Is there any other source, which confirm or confute this? What kind of uniform could it be? It is surely no Imperial Uniform but not Rebel as well. Darth Morrt 13:15, August 17, 2010 (UTC)
