"It didn't quite work for me. It was a nice picture but I expected something different. I thought it would be a different kind of film. It had fabulous stuff in it but it didn't work for me."
Irvin Kershner, director of The Empire Strikes Back, when asked if he was pleased with the film Return of the Jedi[src]

"Wookieepedia is a lavish and stunning homage to the Star Wars pop cultural phenomenon. Thanks to its professional appearance, the scope of its content, the quality of its writers and diligence of its administrators, Wookieepedia has become a valuable resource to fans both casual and obsessive, as well as to Star Wars authors. It's becoming the new nexus for everyone who wants to know as much as Yoda about that galaxy far, far away."
Abel G. Peña praising Wookieepedia, the Star Wars wiki[src]

  1. No to self-aggrandizing comments for the sake of self-aggrandizement. If this were specifically for the purpose of being QOTD on March 4 (i.e. our anniversary) I might rethink it, but for just any day, no. Master Jonathan (Council Chambers) Saturday, March 19, 2011, 00:46 UTC

"Presumably the only reason for Grievous to use [a mono-wheeled bike] is because he's insanely reckless, and it has some impressive turn of speed that can outrun anything. Except a giant feathered lizard. Seriously, in the movie Grievous has a huge head start on Obi-Wan. He's riding this gnarly hi-tech mono-wheel thing, while Obi-Wan is on a lizard. And the lizard catches up. And overtakes. Presumably it must have a +50 native terrain advantage or something."

"Ooh! How mildly annoying... [consumed by fire] Zam... If only you could see what I've seen with your eyes! I've seen things your people wouldn't believe. Attack ships on fire off the shoulder of Orion. I watched C-beams glitter in the dark near the Tannhäuser gate. All those moments will be lost in time...like tears in rain... Time to die.

Narrative text

Lost Tribe: Sentinel (sort-of spoiler I guess) (+3)

"Keshiri legend held that soon after the Sith arrived, some of their native population had escaped over the ocean. They'd chosen a one-way trip to privation and likely death over lives of service to the Tribe. Today's more devoted Keshiri told it as a cautionary tale: choice of destiny was a luxury reserved for the Protectors, not their servants. The cost of arrogance, for a servant, was isolation.
"Ori saw it differently. If the exodus really had happened, whoever had led those slaves away was the greatest Keshiri of all time. Their fates had been decided—and defied."
―The thoughts of Orielle Kitai on the exile of the Keshiri resistance[src]
