  1. Beginning to understand why ObiWan looked at Han so skeptically when he made that claim. Also think Han was just full of it all along. Saber beats blaster any day.

  2. The post-ROTJ books made an attempt at explaining this by saying that Kessel was next to a cluster of black holes called “The Maw.” Getting to/from Kessel in “less than 12 parsecs” meant that he was skirting dangerously close to the black holes.

    I didn’t say it was a _good_ explanation.

  3. Yea, I read that… I still hold to two theories…

    1. Han is blowing smoke up their rears since they obviously look like locals who might not know any different, or….

    2. Lucas screwed up and used a really fancy sounding term that he didn’t completely understand or thoroughly look up.

    I’m more inclined to go with number two myself.

    Very nice, Niktom!
    (and I agree–I put the blame for the “parsec” screw-up on Lucas, not Han)

  5. Ugh. Don’t ever take college astronomy. You will spend countless miles memorizing distance formulas instead of anything trivial (or fun), like how many moons each planet has. It’s brutal.
