Summary

Minute 8 of Star Wars: Droids enter the escape pod and blast into space. Princess Leia is interrogated by Darth Vader.

Guests

Tony Consiglio

Notes

Discussed: C3-PO's comment "The damage doesn't look so bad from out here" is peculiar and why do the Imperial restrain themselves from firing on the escape pod?

Background information not discussed in episode: In earlier drafts of Star Wars C3-PO 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 fighters 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.
