It's funny, the little tidbits you find tucked into some of the WEG books...

I'm thumbing through Han Solo & The Corporate Sector right now. A lot of the chapters begin with Han Solo monologuing to an Alliance interviewer about aspects of life in the Corporate Sector. On the lead-in to Chapter Four: Security Division (page 42), I found the following:
    "On the other hand, I figure the Empire could function without big rallies, purges or the Execution Channel, but somehow it just wouldn't be fun for them anymore and they know it."

Execution Channel?

Shocked

Earlier, we talked about holo-news segments being transmitted around the galaxy for informative purposes. This is something completely new. Considering how obsessed people here on Earth get with gory entertainment like Game of Thrones or The Walking Dead, it's not too much of a stretch to imagine beings across the galaxy settling down for an evening of watching a firing squad at work, or getting worked up for Disintegration Week on the Execution Channel.

Just wanted to put that out there.


Gives a whole new meaning to Shark Week, I telluwhut.

Well that was surprising. I wonder, does Shark Week overlap with Talk like a Pirate Day?

In the SWU, it's more likely to be Rancor Week, I would think. There is mention in the SWSB about underground holos being circulated of Jabba's Rancor eating people. Of course, Rancors were supposedly almost unheard of per WEG's history, but they've been used for all kinds of things in the EU ever since...

And some author put Rancors on Dathomir so they became even more common.

And made them sentient.

That'd be Dave Wolverton in The Courtship of Princess Leia, I believe. Not a good book.

But without Dave Wolverton and sentient Rancors, there would be no Fluffy!
