I check the first copy I could find online and the first blast I saw turned the screen white. Given that the Tantive IV was moving away from the camera, the shot must have originated with it since shots from the Devastator would not likely have been able to hit the camera.
- Is there a canonical answer (legends/new canon) about which ship fired first (rather than the first shot we see)?
- Are the differences amongst the various versions (who shot first & who shot first on screen)?
I want to make a shirt that says "X shot first" where X is either the Tantive IV or the Devastator and I want to be able to defend whatever position I wind up taking.
