Just imagine Stormtroopers in Star Trek. Stormtrooper shoots a redshirt. Stormtrooper misses. Redshirt dies anyway. Confused

Meanwhile a Clone Trooper would've hit the bullseye BECAUSE THEY'RE THE GOOD GUYS.

hahahahaaa, this is so true!
few mornings ago watched old trilogy (IV,V,VI) and only on part VI there was a successful hit by a stormtrooper (as I remember Leia's shoulder was damaged). oh and r2d2 was hit there as well.
yeah. that's when I noticed how precise they really are.

Yes, that's true.

Speaking of the clones, that was one thing that bothered me a bit about the "moral" Republic, and Padmé in particular: droid armies are illegal, but the moment the Republic is threatened, then oh no, *clone* armies are suddenly legal. I know it's because Palpatine gets emergency powers before the senators know about the army, but you'd expect some dissent. As well as the fact that people getting in any way offended is this horrible thing for Padmé, except when it's Anakin doing the offending (or killing).

That said, it was a great saga. =D

oh totally, what it comes down to is the original movies - particularly the first had no big shoot outs where the main characters were involved. The Stormtroopers owned the Rebel troops in the initial boarding Princess Leia's ship scene, but any of the death star shoot outs were just Han, Luke, Chewie, Leia and the droids - characters that were too crucial to the story and particularly back then in this kinda movie - main characters don't die. Even Vader didn't die til ROTJ really. so to make the main characters bad-ass and the audience to be wowed out with special effects, there had to be a couple shoot outs.
At least in Empire Strikes Back you had Rebel troops suffering losses big time for realism... ish.

In the prequel movies you had the clones - perfect movie cannon fodder.

the other one was that the Death Star troopers weren't elites by any means, just noobies fresh from Carida and being indoors all the time in the Death Star and mostly being used to build the bloody thing they weren't very practiced - also they weren't in any particular state of readiness - no one was expecting a fight inside the biggest fortress in the galaxy.

No, you see, the thing is, some people say the Stormtroopers in Ep. IV are the old clones, right?

In which case, they'd be about 33 to 35, right? Only, clones age twice as fast, which means they'd be in their 60s. With the added bonus of all the kinds of genetic diseases and/or cell mutations that cloning would cause.

We can hardly blame the poor guys =P

Lovin it.

Reading 'X-Wing: Starfighters of Adumar' for the umpteenth time since '99 and there was a line in there about 'the locals being worse marksman than a fresh recruit class at the Stormtrooper academy' - something like that ;P
This shot just about sums that up!

Very nice touch with the singed blaster holes.

I still don't get how the stormtroopers could have come from a great bounty hunter. Perhaps the original DNA samples were left out of the freezer for too long and this is what resulted. :P
