I would but sadly the forums here only allow you to post 10 photos per post.

 

Unless someone knows a trick around it?

 

Also: oops - I missed one. I thought I posted everyone...

LIEUTENANT BLOUNT: This guy actually ended up using the OTHER gunner platform along with Cracken. Both Z pilots in the Falcon during the Battle of Endor. Funny, innit?

KYLE KATARN: They need to make another Jedi Knight game. Jedi Academy was forever ago.
 

 

So much this, and a modern entry in the X-wing/TIE Fighter series wouldn't hurt either, if you're listening EA... of course where the hell would I find a flight stick these days...

 

And technically, weren't most of the non-called by name on screen characters retconned? I doubt 'random extra in X-wing pilot flight suit' was credited as Tarn Mison, just as an obvious example. Or any of the named TIE pilots. Or 'random A-wing pilot who draws off interceptors' or 'other random A-wing pilot who rams the Executor's bridge'.

It's true. However some, like Tarn Mison actually were named on set and were later used in the EU.

Funny thing about that scene, everyone in it was played by someone who helped make the movie happen. Ralph McQuarrie makes an appearance on the right side, and I know there's others. The guy who played Tarn had a hand in production, too.

JAKE FARREL: The first time this guy stood out to me was when they used him in the PC game Rebel Assault, where he trains you to use an A-Wing. Fitting, as that's the ship he flies here.
 
Lando: Split up and head back to the surface. And see if you can get a few of those TIE Fighters to follow you.
Jake: Copy, Gold leader.

Isn't this Tycho, not Jake? In several of the X-wing books Wedge refers to Tycho and his bravery by saying he "led TIE fighters on a merry chase through the Death Star." This guy seems a rather perfect fit for Tycho... So why is it Jake?


Rebels: 5 X-wing, 2 Y-wing, 3 Z-95, 5 A-wing, 4 B-wing, 2 E-wing, 1 HWK-290, 1 YT-1300, 1 GR-75, 1 CR-90

Imps: 5 TIE/Ln, 5 TIE/In, 3 TIE/B, 2 TIE/D,1 TIE/Adv, 1 TIE/P, 1 Lambda, 1 Firespray-31

*1 Imperial Aces, 2 Rebel Aces included within total*

Want: YT-2400, VT-49

According to Wookieepedia, there were two A-wings that split off, and Tycho was in A-wing number 2. I don't know if we ever really see a visual of the pilot for the second one.

 

Also according to Wookieepedia, Tycho is supposed to be visible in the briefing room scene (gogo author retcons).

 

Edit: There may be some A-wing pilots in green flight suits on the left side of the briefing room, standing along the upper level railing. If you can identify a blonde/light brown haired pilot, that may be Tycho.

The Emperor instructs "Tell Captain Kagi to prepare my shuttle for immediate takeoff" before leaving for Mustafar.

 

Assuming he remains the pilot, that means Kagi is the pilot when the Emperor's shuttle lands on the death star.

Yeah, there's some inconsistency as to whether or not Kagi is a clone.

 

Some trivia book somewhere 'confirmed' he was a clone, yet there's a ROTS visual dictionary (I think that's what it's from) that shows a guy labelled Captain Kagi, and it wasn't a clone.

 

As much as I'd like to believe he isn't a clone, the fact that he's in Episode 3 and in the service of the Republic makes me think he might be.

Is it just me, or does Katarn look a lot like Riker from TNG?

 

It has been a hidden fact that Commander Riker was onboard of the first destroyed Mon Calamari Cruiser in battle of Endor.

 

"Fire at Will, commander" were Emperor's exact words when he decided to terminate his career.

I hate to go all nerd and stuff but the picture for Ten Numb is wrong, that's Nien Numb. Ten Numb has a white flight suit.

 

Otherwise this is great! good job putting this together.
