Quotes

Captain Jyanix Bach: Well, what we had here was that these, uh, Jawas had stolen some Imperial property and it unfortunately turned violent. These Jawas do this kind of stuff all the time, pickin' up, you know, stray droids and sellin' them off to the highest-paying customer...

Best piece of Star Wars Fan Fiction I've seen
30 May 2005 | by See all my reviews

A great piece of fan work, definitely on par with the kind of work I would expect from Kevin Smith set in the Star Wars universe. Yeah I know Kevin Smith uses a lot of toilet humor and stoner jokes, but I also know that if he ever made a Star Wars film, he would approach it with the utmost respect.

That being said the acting was great for fan work, the sound was near perfect, the costumes were good as well, especially the Jawas, even though they couldn't be done exactly as in the movies. I liked how it portrayed the everyday mundane lives of Stormtroopers, who were promised adventure and were given a backwater planet. Definitely a 10/10

PS - The line Owen Lars mutters as he starts to turn is "Ben you owe me big time".
