  • C-3PO's comment "The damage doesn't look so bad from out here" is peculiar.
  • Why do the Imperials restrain themselves from firing on the escape pod?


  • In earlier drafts of Star Wars C-3PO and R2-D2 begin as imperial droids on the Death Star. During a battle between the space station and attacking star-fighters, led by General Skywalker, the two droids escape the space station. As it travels past enemy fighters, one star-fighter comments, "Object approaching. Attack bearing..." Another star-fighter calls off targeting the droids, noting "It's a life-pod. Let it go." This is also depicted in the graphic novel The Star Wars by JW Rinzler.
