Major Spoilers Poll of the Week
When it comes to space travel, there are a couple of routes you can go.  The first is the safe route, which means it takes 100 years or more to put a colony on the Moon, which is a good thing, because everyone knows the Moon blew up in 1999.  The other is to seek out strange new worlds, and make a buck or two by smuggling spice for the Hutts.  The second is a bit more reckless, but can lead to so much more in the end.  Which brings us to the Major Spoilers Poll of the Week!

Who is more reckless?

    Stephen, during Zach’s review it sounds like you were either talking about Witch Doctor (as Matthew said) or Harvest. Harvest is the story of organ traffickers who hire a former doctor to do clandestine underground surgeries. It started out quite good, but lost me after a few issues.

    Re: The Star Wars movies. Some of the same concerns that I hear about recasting the main characters (Luke, Leia, Han Solo) are similar to those that were heard when trying to recast the Star Trek cast.

    If the story is strong, if the acting is solid, I can buy into new people being cast in the beloved roles. But make it a bad story, and it won’t matter who’s playing who.

    So, I was thinking about Star Wars cannon.

    I really don’t think they utilized the Ion Cannon as well as they could have.

    In all seriousness though, you guys are completely right. There is no way to appease all fans due to the extensive canon.

    i’d actually like to see some sort of saving private ryan-type flick, done from the POV of stormtroopers. the fact that they’re all jango fett clones could really lead to some interesting thoughts on identity and conformity in between all the pyew-pyew shooty shooty.

    OR just any really well-crafted story that makes you feel for some of the empire dudes in the trenches, or a squad of TIE fighter pilots.

    i dunno.

You know you have something to say, say it in the comment section
