If we accept all the Star Wars films as the same canon, then a lot that
happens in the original films has to be reinterpreted in the light of the
prequels. As we now know, the rebel Alliance was founded by Yoda, Obi-Wan
Kenobi and Bail Organa. What can readily be deduced is that their first
recruit, who soon became their top field agent, was R2-D2.

A New Sith, or
Revenge of the Hope Reconsidering Star Wars IV in the light of I-
An interesting reinterpretation of Star Wars IV–VI,
notwithstanding the fact that George Lucas was
making everything up as he went along, especially for episodes I–III but he
doesn't care—he's got our money and besides, geeks live for explaining
continuity errors in science fiction series (and amusingly enough, nothing
that went on in Episodes I–III matched what he wrote about in “Bantha Tracks”—I know
this because my friend Hoade used to get this newsletter as a kid).

The dates are the permanent links to that day's entries (or

simple: Start with the base link for this site: https://boston.conman.org/, then add the date you are

You may also note subtle shading of the links and that's
intentional: the “closer” the link is (relative to the
page) the “brighter” it appears. It's an experiment in
using color shading to denote the distance a link is from here. If
you don't notice it, don't worry; it's not all that
