Jabba the Hutt valued money and power, and enjoyed showing off just how much he had of both. The Khetanna, his luxury sail barge, was among the crimelord’s most extravagant purchases: a massive transport that carried up to 500 passengers, maintained a crew of 26, and was outfitted with space for live music and entertainment. It was manufactured by Ubrikkian, measuring 30 meters long and equipped with a heavy blaster cannon -- an essential feature for Jabba’s lifestyle. Indeed, the craft was symbolic of Jabba’s hubris and ego, and played a large part in his downfall.
A burly Aqualish thug, Ponda Baba was one of the alien barflies escaping the heat of Tatooine’s twin suns in the Mos Eisley Cantina. Bored and looking for excitement, Ponda picked a fight with Luke Skywalker, which his friend Dr. Evazan quickly escalated. The two bullies had picked the wrong target – Obi-Wan Kenobi interceded, and took action when Ponda and Evazan refused to back down. The old man’s lightsaber left Evazan dead and severed Ponda’s arm, ending the quarrel rather decisively.
A grubby, scarred human, Dr. Evazan tried to bully Luke Skywalker in the Mos Eisley Cantina, boasting that he faced a death sentence in 12 systems. Evazan and his pal Ponda Baba assumed the young farmboy would be an easy target, and paid little heed to the old man in dusty robes who’d accompanied Luke into the bar. That was a fatal mistake by Evazan – when he escalated the conflict by hurling Luke aside and pulling his blaster, Obi-Wan Kenobi coolly ignited his lightsaber and cut Evazan down.
After Luke Skywalker, Han Solo and Chewbacca rescued Princess Leia from her cell on the Death Star, they sought safety in one of the battle station’s trash compactors. It was a perilous refuge: the garbage masher was home to a tentacled carnivore known as a dianoga. The slimy monster poked an eyestalk above the surface of the garbage to see what had invaded its abode and then attacked, dragging Luke under the surface to drown him so he could become a meal later. Fortunately for Luke, the dianoga let go of him and disappeared. Unfortunately for all of the rebel heroes, the creature fled because it sensed the walls were about to move, crushing anything in their path.
