Galaxies Far Away… **Week 6

Week 6 already?????? Who would have guessed we are already 1/3 of the way done with this CAL?!?!?

This week we not only have a character, but an integral part of ALL of the movies – an X-Wing Starfighter! This spacecraft is one of the most recognizable pieces of all of the Star Wars Saga. And then of course, who better to pair it with than Admiral Gait Ackbar – author of the manual used by all Galactic Empire pilots.

We are truly enjoying your posts in our Facebook Group and cannot wait to see what our members have in store for us with these squares. If you haven’t yet started this CAL, there’s still time, and as time seems to be flying by so quickly on this particular CAL – you may want to grab your hook, a basket of scrap yarn, and mumble a bit of gibberish to the Force asking for help weaving in the ends…. and get started….. before time marches on and leaves you standing there while everyone else is flying by (see what I did there? 😂)

Admiral Ackbar: (Gial Ackbar)

Profession: Admiral Ackbar became the leader of the Calamarian Council following the formation of the Galactic Empire

Homeworld: Dac

Born in Coral Depths City

Species: Mom Calamari

Eye Color: Orange

Skin Color: Mottled Brown

Without Admiral Ackbar and his people, we would all be the Emperor’s slaves.


X-Wing Starfighter:

Manufacturer: Incom Corporation

Model: T-65 X-wing starfighter

Class: Assault Starfighter

Characteristics and Statistics:

  • “X” shape of four wings, known as S-foils

FUN FACT: X-wing fighters were originally to be blue, however they were changed to red and white because the blue color blended in with the blue-screen during filming and they disappeared on screen

The Incom T-65 X-wing is the fighter that killed the Death Star. An almost perfect balance of speed, maneuverability, and defensive shielding make it the fighter of choice for Rogue Squadron. GENERAL CARLIST RIEEKAN
