    Just wanna dispel a little misconception I see every day among ppl when dealing with STAR WARS.

    Its origin may surprise you. And the quick answer is, no it doesn't have any major thing to do with the Japanese movie called "The Fortress".

    BUT, be forewarned, the explanation will require multi-posts spanning across several weeks/months of thought.

    So here goes, for starters, let's get the easy stuff out of the way first:

    1. Darth Vader's suit. Where does it come from?

    Answer: A high-tech spin of a Japanese Shogun warlord armor. Was such armor seen in "The Fortress"? Highly unlikely.

    2. We have established that nobody on the STAR WARS production team even needed to watch "The Fortress". All they had to do was visit a Japanese war museum, or flip thru the equivalent photo book, and presto! Darth Vader's iconic costume.

    Everyone with me? Good.

    Let's now move onto the spaceships...
