Question For Ya

In the six Star Wars movies, did a Storm Trooper ever hit anyone with a blaster that was not a droid?

I recall them hitting some of the rebel grunts on the princess' ship in episode 4...

In Return of the Jedi, Princess Leah is hit as they are trying to get into the command bunker on the Forest Moon of Endor (aka Care Bear Planet). But I don't recall who fired the shot

Damn, it took over four hours for the first answer. Guess your readers *do* have lives.

They must have hit something, because I remember the hall being lined with rebel bodies in the very first movie when Vader walks in.

Pete - Eh. It was all friendly fire :-)

Anyway, Leah DOES get hit by a trooper in Ep 4, right after she finishes giving the message to R2, but the blaster is set for stun at the time.

Other than that, they're REALLY lousy shots. Probably because they always shoot from the hip & never bother to actually sight in their targets.

Also it could be those helmets. They looked like they would do wonders for peripheral vision.
