There's a little bit of extra dialogue in the script that would suggest that he's reading off their temperature (in degrees?) OBI-WAN: Careful . . . we're heating up-twelve thousand . . . thirteen thousand . . . ANAKIN: What's our speed? OBI-WAN: Eight plus sixty-forty. Eight plus sixty-twenty. Eight plus sixty. Temp ten thousand, nine thousand . . . we're ...

Your understanding of hyperspace technology is fundamentally inaccurate. "When a ship enters hyperspace it must enter from a planetary system and exit at another planetary system" This is incorrect. Ships in hyperspace also travel through normal space, which means that they can choose to come out of hyperspace between systems, reverse direction ...

Per the Revenge of the Sith script: ["DARTH SIDIOUS flies through the air, cape flapping, heading toward the exit. At the last second, YODA flies into the exit and stops the Dark Lord]. YODA: (continuing) If so powerful you are, why leave?? - Right before Yoda says that, Palpatine jumps for the door, and Yoda jumps to block his exit.

Grievous launched the pods. Obi-Wan is referencing that event. He reached a hatch and opened it. His calculations were correct; he was in one of the escape-pod bays. He started for the pods, then hesitated. Why not make things a little harder for those annoying Jedi? He crossed to the control panel and began flipping switches, jettisoning all the escape ...

It seems to be just a rumour. A page about known deleted scenes doesn't mention any kiss scene, and says "that’s all as far as more revelations are concerned", so you'd expect a kiss scene to be mentioned if there was one. At least one person has deliberately tried to spread this rumour: I'm gonna post this picture and say there's a deleted ...

To quote the top comment in that video: Vader didn't come here. Anakin did. Vader(Anakin) was always in conflict with his attachments to his loved ones, and this is another example. His Sith self probably sees her as another Jedi, and his Jedi self sees her as his former Padawan. If you have followed the events of the Original Trilogy, you can see that even ...

This is nothing fancy exclusive to the Star Wars universe. In this context it just means that they're going to act as an escort to their ship and guide them to a landing.

If I'm remembering the sequence of events correctly, Rey lands Ren's TIE on Ahch-To and burns it, intending to go into self-exile. Luke's Force ghost shows up and convinces her not to, so she pulls the Sith Wayfinder out of the wreckage of the TIE fighter (it's apparently immune to fire) and Luke dredges up his old X-Wing; Rey takes the X-Wing and the Sith ...

In Legends the clones had free will, because they weren't brainwashed but indoctrinated. (take the people of North Korea as a real life example, they have free will seeing they aren't mind controlled but they are thought to obey and don't know how not to.) From birth they were trained to be one cohesive unit and fully dependent on a command structure. So if ...

He owes him for 'taking the hit', e.g. spending a very long and boring afternoon with the politicians (as they heap praise on him and make endless dull speeches) while Obi-Wan gets to do something useful, heading off to debrief the Jedi Council and work on their next mission. “This whole operation was your idea,” Anakin said to Obi-Wan. “You planned it. You ...

In this context, appointment does not mean an appointment with the Council. It is referring to Anakin being made a member of the Council, by Palpatine, rather than being chosen by the Council.

Is it confirmed to be Tarkin? No. The author doesn't name him in the text, nor has there been any confirmation from LucasFilm or Glen Weldon that it's him in the story. Was it supposed to be Tarkin? All signs point to yes. The voice actor, Marc Thompson used in the audiobook is the same actor who portrays Tarkin in another story (doing the same accent). ...

The only pre-TCW source I've found for Order 66 being involuntary is the non-canon Tag and Bink: Revenge of the Clone Menace (2006). In this comic, reacting to the words "Order 66" by trying to kill Jedi is apparently a genetic condition inherited from Jango Fett, who attacks the titular Tag and Bink after the 66th order is called in Dex's Diner: ...

Cross-posting a bit from my answer on the related question. Cutscenes in Jedi Knight I and II show the source of the Force energy in the Valley of the Jedi to be the large dome in the center. In the (Legends-)canonical, "good" ending, Kyle Katarn frees the energy from the dome: (source: cutscene from Dark Forces II: Jedi Knight) This is confirmed ...

I also felt there was some conflict between the tension in episode V (about whether or not Solo would survive the freezing process) and the generous use of carbon freezing in some of the newer productions. But this isn't an outright contradiction if you look closely at this conversation between Darth Vader and Lando: Vader: "This FACILITY IS CRUDE but ...
