[Honor this line - it had to fight to get here!]

	To recapitulate, the question was this:
	Scene is as follows: Luke, Han, Leah, et. al., have just made
good their escape from the deathstar, and destroyed the sentry ships.
Han and Leah are having a conversation on the bridge of the Millenium
Falcon. There is SOMETHING WRONG with this scene.

	And now (drumroll, flourish of trumpets), THE ANSWER:

	In the scene immediately prior, we see Moff Tarkin and Vader
having a conversation back at the Death Star. Tarkin - "Are they away?";
Vader - "They have just made the jump into hyperspace."
	But as Han and Leah talk, we see a perfectly normal starfield
thru the windows on the Falcon's bridge. 
	
	In addition to the posted response to this question (which was
correct) I received 5 mailed replies, 1 incorrect, 1 missing all but
the header, and 3 correct. All honor and glory to our winners, plus 1
Buick (virtual) to ut-sally!hitchens, for being fastest on the draw.
	Our winners are:

	Ron Hitchens		(ut-sally!hitchens)
	Ron Pankiewicz		(fluke!ron)
	Rich Wales		(wales@UCLA-LOCUS.ARPA)

Yes.  They show a white cloud effect.

In the "A New Hope", just before Han Solo dropped out of hyperspace into
the Alderaan (sp?) system, there was a scene in the window similar to the
"wormhole" in "Star Trek: The Motion Picure".
