    Yoda: "Bring me a ship!"

    I would like to know...what happened to Yoda's ship when he entered the Geonosian hangar? Was he accompanied by Clone Troopers or did he fly the thing himself? What kind of ship was it? If he was accompanied by Clone Troopers...then why the heck did they not secure the premisess and prevent Dooku from boarding his Solar Sailer?...or let him escape?

    I imagine he had a republic gun ship, as that's all that we saw. I also imagine he would of been accompanied by clonetroopers, but he probally told them to go back and join the fight. They'd of only got in the way and would have been a better help on the front lines.
    If you want to find it you have to shop.

    Darkross has just shot another hole in what is the flaming wreckage of AOTC's "plot".

    Exactly! He needed a ship which most likely consisted of the pilots and that's it. Yoda was going to take care of Jedi business, and no reason to pull troops from the battle when he already had Obi-Wan & Anakin there.

    It's not a screw up like when Vader sensed Obi-Wans presence after the falcon was pulled into the Death Star hanger bay. If Vader sensed Obi-Wan then why didn't he board the ship instead of running to Tarkin? Or like when the Death Star went to blow up Yavin, why didn't they just blow up both planets, and put an end to the Rebellion once and for all? That's just sloppy.

    Luckily the prequels so far offer a more believeable story 'cause the OT need serious help.

    that would be hilarious if yoda flew a ship himself! but i agee i think he just asked for a pilot and went himself! no need for troopers there, there not going do nething but get in the way!

    I would think he likely went with a full ships crew (what that would be I don't know - 2 pilots, a gunner and 6 troopers?) and got let off at a different hangar door, not knowing exactly where the others were? He swaggers in from around the corner doesn't he? The ships crew probably fanned out to chase separatists or were engaged by Geos and had to cover for the little guy. As far as plots go and stuff, I don't really care whether or not movies are a stretch. That's what fantasy is for. It's harder for me to buy into the extreme stunts in XXX (of course I mean the XXX with Vin Diesel) or a late James Bond movie than I do with stretches in plot developments in fantasy films. If amazing events didn't transpire, what the hell would they make the movie for any way?

    It's possible that the ship that dropped Yoda off was the same that picked up Padme.

    I was thinking the same thing.


    But seriously he probably got dropped off and sent them back to battle.

    Also, the fate of the first gunship that docked at the landing pad (when off loading Obi Wan and Anakin) was probably reported back to the command post, and so I would imagine the pilot wouldn't want to hang around letting the 'duck beak' fighters pick him off.
