Introduction Fail?[]

The introduction describes Luke Skywalker as being the "leader of the Rebellion". Why then, is he involved in the security sweep? Shouldn't they be doing more important things? Timeoin 12:41, March 30, 2011 (UTC)

One answer could be his age and rank. I mean as a hero he was a leader but as rank he was sent on patrol. Another possibility is because they had not adjusted the flying speeders to the cold, so luke, now high rank after three years, did not send others into risk of cold without speeder so went himself in cold on beast. he was right about danger when the wampa beast hit him. finally answered after nine years.

Which Ord Mantell Bounty Hunter?[]

In the film Han mentions that a Bounty hunter on Ord Mantell made Han decide to pay up with Jabba The Hutt. Only one problem, which one? There have been two missions there and in each case Han dealt with a Bounty Hunter. Also in each article they say it was that Bounty hunter that Han was talking about. We should get that cleared up and mention it on this article. Ztyran 19:25, June 10, 2012 (UTC)

Answer: It was the same one, So the place suffices to identify. finally answered after 8 years. NoCircumciseBaby (talk) 06:41, September 25, 2020 (UTC)

Robin Scobey[]

According to IMDb and (I think) the movie's credits, Robin Scobey played an imperial officer. He was between Oliver Maguire and Bruce Boa. I'd add him myself, but I don't know his character's name (he's only credited as "Other Imperial Officer"). 22:52, August 23, 2016 (UTC)

removed questionable statement[]

Before me, the most recent edit to this article changed

it is also the only one of the seven Star Wars films in which no major character dies.


it is also the only one of the eight Star Wars films in which no major character dies.

Assuming we aren't counting Rogue One, we don't yet know if a major character dies in Episode VIII... do we?
