	I know this is going to start an avalanche, but what
the heck.
	I have a question for the SW-freaks of netland. In SW-ANH
and TESB, who was the *Real Hero*, without whom everyone else would
been lost, and everyone would have fallen into the hands of the

	Of course, I have my own answer, which I will give along
with my reasons. The answer is R2-D2!
	The reasons:

	1) In SW-ANH, it was R2-D2 who was carrying the schematics
for the Death Star; it was R2-D2 who went to find Obi-Wan Kenobi,
who in turn enlisted (or drafted) Luke Skywalker, which got the whole
ball rolling. Without those plans, the Rebellion could never have
destroyed the Death Star.

	2) In TESB, towards the end, Lando, Leia, Chewbacca and
Luke are all aboard the Millenium Falcon (along w/C3-P0), and are
getting ready to kick into hyperspace. They don't know that the mean
old Empire mechanics disabled the hyperdrive. Darth Vader feels the
ship in his grimy clutches..... when R2-D2 starts mumbling about the
hyperdrive to C3-P0 (who is only partially reassembled). R2 heads
off towards the back of the ship, plugs in a few wires, the hyperdrive
kicks in, and EVERYBODY IS SAVED!! (Yay, clap hands, cheer, etc)

	Ready to cover my head from the falling rocks,
