    Definition:
    Anthology
    1.
    a book or other collection of selected writings, often in the same literary form, of the same period, or on the same subject.

    Anthologies
    1. A collection of literary pieces, such as poems, short stories, or plays.
    ---------------

    I'm looking forward to many more "fill in the blank" stories from the Star Wars canon. Rogue 1 fills in the blank to the question, "how did they get the plans to the death star?" It might also give us some back story to Leia's role & how she was captured... What else happened to Luke, Leia, Boba, Obi Wan, Yoda, etc between when we leave them in Episode 3 & when we join them in episode 4? Will we see Yoda build his hut & meditate with Qui Gon? Do Yoda & Obi Wan meet again? Will we see Leia rise from a child to a Princess, and again to a Rebel? Will we see Luke playing as a boy & learning to farm while Obi Wan looks on from a distance? How do Han & Chewie meet? What dark adventures does Boba Fett embark on while collecting bounties in his father's place? Does he have a mentor before donning the suit? Will we see the game where Han wins the Falcon from Lando? So many questions to answer!

    And after they make a bunch of these, what questions will we have about the period between episodes 6 & 7 (and beyond)? The Anthology will continue... And I can't wait :D

    I suppose it's too much to hope that the Rebel lineup is:

    Garven Dreis _____________ ("Rogue Leader")*
    _____________ Felicity Jones ("Rogue One")
    Wedge Antilles ____________ ("Rogue Two")
    Biggs Darklighter __________ ("Rogue Three")
    _______________ Sam Claflin ("Rogue Four")
    _______________ Riz Ahmed ("Rogue Five")
    Jek Porkins _______________ ("Rogue Six")


    I wouldn't mind seeing Nien Nunb in a small role somewhere in there too
    I'd prefer it if they got lookalikes to portray the pilots from ANH

    Ben Mendelsohn - Imperial


    [​IMG]

    *As an alternative I could see the new cast playing Rogues One, Two, and Three and dying for the cause (to be replaced with Garven Dreis, Wedge, and Biggs at the end of the movie)

    There seems to be shark teeth on part of the rebel dropship in the picture they showed us at celebration. All through history the army always paints shark teeth on their craft, airplanes, helicopters etc... So is this what we're seeing here?

    1.Dropship with shark teeth! Between the two engines and the search light.

    2.WW2 airplane with shark teeth!

    If this is done already then I am sorry for making this thread.

    Only thing I see between the engines and search light is an open door with more soldiers.

    The Flying Tigers or the elite AVG(American Volunteer Group) used older P51 Mustangs with the "shark-teeth". :D
    Interesting note: for decades many people thought the Flying Tigers were volunteers or paid mercenaries but the unit was a top secret program by the Army Air Corps & OSS. President Roosevelt knew the secret plan all the time!

    By the way, www.BlownDeadline.net has a lot of cool guns with Cerakote Shark Teeth/Tiger Teeth. :cool:

    @Greg Kirby you have some really cool finds, but please avoid making a separate thread for each and every one of them. If you continue to do so we would have to remove your ability to post threads for a period of time.
    I know that you want more attention to your threads, but what will happen if every member (from the 2300) starts posting threads for everything they come up with. We will be flooded. We do this just to ease the life of the mods and the members. We want easier navigation through the boards.

    Do those dropships look like they have giant s-foils like X-Wings? They seem to be sporting the stacked engine pods on the sides.
