Ohhh I agree and metioned that several posts back.

Falcon does have on board nav computer. It used to be L3-37 if you saw Solo.... My point was though that I thought (perhaps mistakenly) that Peli said she installed something to replace the astromech so he wouldn't need one because of his previous dislike of droids. That seems to have melted away by the end of the episode.


From what I recall of the lore, using astromechs for jump calculations was primarily limited to fighter craft. Larger ships generally had a navicomputer built in. I don't recall the "why" for this though.


Maybe so we'd have a reason to have R2D2 on the X-Wing with Luke. :)

Her explanation comes in the 39th minute, and she says that she 'hogged it out'. I have no idea what that means, other than she removed it, or subbed it out for different parts? Side note, is the combustion booster he buys from the Jawas the same thing as one of the parts Luke used to try and slow down the trash compactor on the Death Star?

Yes it is....from the trash compactor.

She does say she hogged it out, and admittedly I don't know what she means either. I figured loaded it up.
"With your disposition I figured you would want to forgo the astromech." So she does remember that he doesn't like droids.

That use of slang in the show seemed quite strange to me.

A ship is hogging when its hull makes a convex shape, analogous to the curve of the top of a pigs back when viewed in profile, as the bottom of the hull is in diagram #2:




The term "hogging out" seems to be used within the telescope mirror making community to refer to the process of grinding down a cylinder of quartz into the shape of a mirror or lens (probably also a convex shape).

In context of the show I took it to mean something more like to bore out the cylinder to enlarge it.

Normally, that spot is open because droids don't need to breathe. Maybe the hogging refers to the convex dome put on it for a living person to sit there instead of a droid.
this is not a signature.

I am going to lean towards making room in the space, most likely for a passenger. I figure we see someone riding back there either before the end of the season or if we get another season of The Mandalorian. The phrase hog out apparently has several meanings, from eat like a hog to the one I linked below. Don't look up the Urban Dictionary version, lol.

My biggest fear is that we will have to watch an episode of Boba Fett in the next season of The Mandalorian...

The "how many character cameos can we throw into one episode?" episode.

Great episode! It seemed a bit cruel to make Grogu choose between the shirt and lightsaber (and Mandalorian & Jedi), as a Beskar shirt would seem to work pretty well for a Jedi. But I know it's because Grogu's heart isn't in the training. It seems kind of obvious that Grogu will choose the Mandalorian, because otherwise (per Luke) he might never see Din again and therefore wouldn't be in Season 3. And the ship has a Grogu sized space already! It would be sad though to see Grogu not get a lightsaber and not get Jedi training.

Although, maybe it's for the best for Grogu to not go to the school given what happens to all the students. It would be nice though to see Luke graduate a few students before the tragedy, so his entire post RotJ life isn't useless. My guess is we won't see much of Luke and R2D2 again for awhile (which I've enjoyed greatly), once Grogu goes back to the Mandalorian.

I hope that the Sherriff isn't dead, I suspect he's just injured. I really enjoy the character and actor. Clearly his townfolk will now fight against the Pike. I wonder if the Tuskans will or not. There haven't been any interactions in present time between Boba and them, it would seem out of left field for them to show up in the final episode, but I won't be surprised if they do.

The non-Boba Fett parts of the episode seemed much better than the Boba Fett parts. It's a bit disappointing that the show doesn't revolve more around Boba, he doesn't seem to be living up to his legend.

I think if Grogu chooses the lightsaber, Luke will let him have the shirt.
Questing for 10th level!
