    In the Exclusive Star Wars DVD's I bought from England from the Sun & The News Of The World, it states that Jango Fett is from Concord Dawn.

    Yeah, that's one of the famous "continuity fixes," where Jaster Mareel was Jango's commander in the Mandaloreans, and the details are getting all mixed up in the re-telling.

    I can't wait for an explanation of the "Stormtrooper who killed his superior officer" origin of Boba from the Dark Empire comics.
    Tommy, close your eyes.

    Never read DE. Did Fett say that himself?
    If not, then they've already sorted it out (kinda). Boba Fett either spreads or doesn't mind the spreading of numerous rumors about his origin.

    The figure is actually Orrimaarko, and Orrin Marko was the friend's name, created by WEG writer Pablo Hidalgo who has since moved on to writing for the SW Insider and sw.com, and apparently is co-authoring a new SW Chronicles Prequels book with Sansweet to be released some time later this year.

    Yeah, Deak was originally in the film, he hangs out with Windy, both of these guys are seen hanging with Cammie and Fixer in the Anchorhead cut scenes. ("Windy" is also another unused name from the original script, Mace Windy, who was a pilot, and a name that got used another way later on).

    Yeah, I knew I wasn't spelling the guys name right. I had read that story in like Toyfare or something a few years ago.

    I think it would be an interesting article in the Insider to go back and ask George where he got the names from. Sorta like "Indiana"; "That was the dog's name" Classic!!

    TARKAAN (Grand Moff Tarkin?): in the Chronicles of Narnia series, the Calormenes who sometimes fought against those of Narnia had either a family name or title called Tarkaan (female: Tarkheena, I think). Tarkin was a leader on the evil side in Star Wars, so the "evil" ones in the books could've been a source.

    I really didn't want to go through 700 pages to see if this was posted or not, so if it has been smack me.

    Dooku is Japanese for 'poison'.
    It's a blacked-out blur but I'm pretty sure it ruled.

    There's a "Search This Thread" search box that comes up when you click it at the top of every thread page, I searched yours and it appears to be unique. If accurate, pretty interesting. I could only find references to "duku" doing a quick google search, an asian-pacific fruit, which I hope wasn't the meaning behind the character's name.

    Re: Jabba's Skiff Guards

    Well, some online sleuthing netted me these possibilities for "Dooku."

    1. Doku (pronounced "dough-koo" ) is Japanese for "poison," so CaptainSolo1138 was close.

    2. Su-doku is a puzzle game from Japan (it was a puzzle or riddle as to who Dooku really was, whose side was he on, etc.)

    3. A website poster thought perhaps the "Count" aspect of Dooku's name had the "poison" translation added to "duke," an honorary title, to create "Dooku."

    So maybe all are true... from a certain point of view.

    I read it in the Insider. So they're close.
