Quotes

Captain Jyanix Bach: I joined the Empire about six years ago. I remember as a kid, you know, watching the holographic images and being excited about the new direction that the galaxy was taking.

Hilarious parody
20 May 2000 | by Op_PrimeSee all my reviews

Troops is an awesome parody of Cops and Star Wars. I downloaded it off the Internet and, though it took very long to download, it was worth it. Troops fills in the holes of Episode IV, by explaining what really happened to the Jawas, Uncle Owen and Luke's Aunt. It's also hilarious to see the stolen droid is none other than MST3K's Tom Servo. This is a must see.
