A New Hope
I am puzzled by the listing of RoTJ as the first appearance of this, as I distinctly recall the mind probe being mentioned in A New Hope... Vader said "it will take some time for the mind probe to extract any information" Right? isnt that a thing that happened? Like seconds before Tarkin decided to blow up alderaan. IF this is not that, then why is this also called a mind probe... is that a different thing mentioned in ANH?
This ability was used in The Phantom Menace and ROTJ. There should be mention of the technique's use in those movies in the history section, respectively.
