How did the Rebels steal the Imperial shuttle Tydirium?

A lot of large discrepancies in the EU were the result of the clear dividing line between the old stuff that came during and immediately after the original trilogy, in which the continuity has been less than a serious concern, and “modern” EU began with Tim Zahn in the nineties. Theft Tydirium, however, probably because of its location in Return of the Jedi, and then, towards the end of most of the first EU-was not even mentioned until 1994, and was later re-counted two sometimes the next ten years or so.

How the Rebels Stole the Tydirium

That first version of the story, ironically, is undoubtedly the most vulgar and mediocre. To hear him tell the story, the young driver rebel known only as starter was nothing less than an army of one man; fighting alone against a large group of bounty hunters (for which we were hunting? who knows) including IG-88, Dengar, and Zuckuss before being taken prisoner by none other than the own Boba Fett and handed over to Darth Vader, I quickly locked in his room of meditation, then the flight in an imperial shuttle is put back to the Alliance.

While this is, of course, the stupidest of history, for once, the author, Peter Schweighofer, find the joke, and apparently intended to be nothing more than a story of a braggart, which means the true story It would still be counted for another five years. On the flight simulation game X-Wing Alliance, one of my favorite things, play another young pilot named Ace Azzameen, whose shipping family is involved unwillingly in the Galactic Civil War as a result of the Battle of Hoth.

Most of the game is spent will alternate between the missions of the Rebel Alliance, flew the normal range of Ala-X and Ala-B and so on, and the missions of the family, usually flown in a freight Azzameens’ Sabra including an impressive version of Lessing YT-1300 freighter most know that the Millennium Falcon. Towards the end of the game, the lines are blurred, and both ships and cargo Azzameen brothers Ace and Aeron Emon begin to play a more direct role in rebel activities. When the Bothan spy Ace accompanied earlier in one of the best missions always inform the Star Pendant Alliance of Death II, the plan to infiltrate the bunker on Endor begins to take shape and Ace has the task of transporting the strength of General Madine Advanced 327 Imperial attack, where they will steal the Tydirium and, above all, their codes settlement.

A funny thing about this mission is that it offers a very clever, very subtle suggestion that the name comes from Tydirium: once you have docked with the outpost and adorable bunch of pixels that make up the command escapes, running the many other shuttles parked in the area reveals names like Mercurium, Xyridium, and so on, it seems this series of shuttles has been appointed to the various theoretical and mineral elements. This was confirmed later by Wizards of the Coast complement the role of Kyle Katarn, specifically namedropped “Tydirium” as a mineral.

In any case, things get hairy for a minute, but ultimately the Sabra and Tydirium escape thanks to the timely arrival of Rogue Squadron. Interestingly, another stage role was written a little later he called “transfer theft”, and in fact uses the Frontier Wrestling Alliance mission as the basis for a story about the attack force itself.

Everything would be hunky-dory, if it were not for the intervention of another video game, Rogue Leader, just a couple of years after Frontier Wrestling Alliance. This time, Wedge Antilles, Rogue Leader holder must sneak Imperial Naval Academy Prefsbelt IV and steal the shuttle itself, while flying cover. While the game is remarkable, as there are a number of different ways the mission can play out depending on the time of day clock gaming system is developed and if you decide to meet a handful of secondary objectives, history itself is quite insignificant Wedge goes, it causes an uproar, and flees.

So the mission seems at first glance that there directly to the Frontier Wrestling Alliance opposition, and, in fact, a Retcon tried to cross sections of whole books, which states that only the codes were stolen in the Frontier Wrestling Alliance not service current transport, but since these were the days when Star Wars does not restart, holocron Guardian Leland Chee finally decreed that have happened both stories as presents, and robbery was the Frontier Wrestling Alliance before. In other words, the official history of the Tydirium shuttle in what is now the Legends was stolen from Outpost 327 and escorted by Rogue Squadron, only to be retaken by the Empire almost immediately and taken to Prefsbelt IV universe, where Wedge would then break in and steal everything again. then the shuttle was transported to Endor and recording under his real name, despite the feelings of Vader, he did not raise any red flags at all. You go figure.
