  1. The answer to the question was Admiral Conan Antonio Motti. Lucas did this on the Conan O’Brian show. Funny I just read about that last night, strange and fortunate for me.

  2. @ID3437
    Guess I should have put my name too. Duh. Anyways I’m Gaines Tidwell ID3437 and I really hope I got this one right. Thanks for the great show and you’ve got me looking forward to Comicon next week.

  3. Oh no! We’ll have to make it up to her. You know, I think we still owe her her 501stCast t-shirt…
