Video Monday

The Star Wars episode of That 70’s Show. Or skip straight to the spoof, if you have the urge to hear the term “Jedi dumbass.”

The unemployed Stormtrooper. Awww.

The PhanDom Menace, excerpt from a documentary about an Australian Star Wars fan club. Accents! Costumes! And Timothy Zahn’s in there, for some reason.

The Darklord of Stall One. Will people in Stormtrooper uniforms doing random stuff ever not be funny? Don’t tell me, I don’t want to know.

That is a freaking Stormtrooper!

Filk Friday

This week’s featured filk is a classic from one of Club Jade’s earliest and most prolific filkers, Echo. Inspired by the events in Tim Zahn’s “The Last Command”, I Wanna Clone Your Hand is sung to Luke by the crazy clone Jedi Master C’Baoth.

Random outbursts of Allegiance news…

A summary of Timothy Zahn’s Allegiance was found by a TFN user on Amazon U.K. I wouldn’t put too much faith in it, as there are two listings for the book and the summary seems a rather rough rewording of the first look at the novel. And they have the movie placement wrong. But, for posterity:

A “Star Wars” novel set between the events of “Empire Strikes Back” and “Return of the Jedi”, it features a younger Han, Leia, and Luke, as well as Mara Jade. Mara Jade, the Emperor’s Hand, is looking into the illicit financial affairs of a planetary governor, hoping to find evidence that he might be funding the Rebellion. Luke, Han, and Chewbacca are sent on a mission to help some rebel supporters. Leia is busy being a diplomat, trying to drum up support for the Rebel Alliance. And a band of 5 stormtroopers, on the run after refusing a direct order, finds itself in the strange position of doing good deeds…and perhaps even aiding the Rebellion. The paths of all of them will crisscross back and forth as they come closer and closer to meeting up with one another…but never quite managing to.

However, we do have something from an official source: Sue Rostoni posted an excerpt from Allegiance on the boards today. Text beneath the cut, nothing all that spoilery, IMO.
