  • Cold open: Ad-read starwarsminute.com/patreon.
  • Julian Lennon was the inspiration for no less than 3 Beatles songs.
  • A possible explanation for why the second Death Star was not built at Coruscant is that, in earlier drafts, the forest moon of Endor orbited the Imperial homeworld of Had Abbadon (discussed early in the movie), rather than a planet that is also named Endor (editor's note: which is far less interesting).
  • Good job Alex, Starkiller base does destroy stars, but not by blowing them up.
  • The Sun Crusher was armed with "resonance torpedos" capable of causing a star to go supernova.
  • Hohass was a Thakwaash. Although they were equinoid in form, they were in fact bipeds and not full-on horses. He was a founding member of Wraith Squadron.

  • Alex and then Pete: "Small potatoes compared to a horse pilot."
