Star Wars Card Of The Week: The Evil Grand Moff

It is hard not to pick this card as my all-time favorite Star Wars card...oh, if only Peter Cushing could have survived the Death Star being blown up...or if the old Grand Moff could have had a larger role in the prequels.

Besides playing Tarkin, Peter was also Doctor Who in two movies...I would say he's my third favorite Doctor overall...[and for the uninitiated...don't ever write it as Dr. Who...it's always Doctor Who]  As you can tell from the titles of his Who movies, Doctor Who and the Daleks and Daleks -- Invasion Earth 2150 AD, both films star my favorite Who villains, the Daleks.

I think it is time we demonstrated the full power of this station. Set your course for Alderaan.

Matt R, I was thinking along the same lines, lol. "Then NAME the system!"

So wait, why is it uncool to write "Dr. Who" instead of Doctor Who? Just curious. Never watched the show, so I don't have a clue.

It's not so much that it is un-cool but rather that it separates the casual fans from the hardcore fans. Since the beginning it's always been spelled out "Doctor" for whatever reason... It would be like saying your favorite characters are Han Solo and his bear friend.
