Anyone think it strange that a Lt. Commander commanding a small Carrack-class cruiser would be the one to issue the Republic's demand for surrender? --SparqMan 14:03, 13 Jul 2005 (UTC)

  • I assume it was because his Strike Group Five was leading the assault on Invisible Hand, and so he was in the best position to try and gain Grievous' surrender - Kwenn 09:42, 10 April 2006 (UTC)
  • I've noticed that many people mistakenly believe Needa to have been an admiral. Unsigned comment by Darth Oblivion (talk • contribs).


Some people survived the force choke. If needa survived the force choke he would of been killed when the executor blew up. So if you haven't seen return of the jedi , don't go thinking he survived. --Windu223 18:40, 6 April 2007 (UTC)

When he was choked he died.Darth Oompa Loompa 21:44, 22 January 2008 (UTC)

You'd be dead if someone had to carry you out like a sack of potatoes. Katana Geldar 07:54, 28 June 2008 (UTC)

  • He's canonically dead. Chack Jadson (Talk) 14:21, 12 April 2009 (UTC)
    • He does rather obviously assist the troopers dragging him away. He moves his feet to support his weight as they lift him up. This could be failure on the actor's side though, as being completely limp is very hard.

Rebel Alliance affiliation Edit

Since he was a rebel synthasizer, shouldn't "Rebel Alliance" be added to his affiliations?--EzriDax 00:51, 20 August 2009 (UTC)

What's wrong with the notes?Оби Ван Кеноби 07:27, September 4, 2010 (UTC)

My edit Edit

If anybody reverts my edit, I would like to present the canon movie dialogue to you:

Nemet (TRACKING OFFICER in script): Captain Needa, the ship no longer appears on our scopes.

NEEDA: They can't have disappeared. No ship that small has a cloaking device.

Nemet: Well, there's no trace of them, sir.

Movie canon is superior to the adaptations. Nowhere in the movie does Nemet suggest the Falcon must have gone into hyperspace. Hanzo Hasashi 21:19, April 17, 2011 (UTC)

  • First off, unilaterally removing information from a Featured Article without first discussing it on the talk page isn't a good idea. Secondly, there is nothing to suggest the dialogue in the novelization is non-canon just because it differs from that found in the film. For these reasons, your edit has been reverted. I would advise you to not attempt this again. Grand Moff Tranner Imperial Department of Military Research (Comlink) 23:07, April 17, 2011 (UTC)
    • Sorry, the edit was meant to be in good faith. While the adaptations are canon, I thought that any contradictory parts of the adaptations weren't. After Nemet says "Well there's no trace of him sir," although in the novel he did say "it must have jumped into hyperspace," in the film, the second afterward, M'kae reports Lord Vader demanding an update on the pursuit. I thought that movie canon, being higher in the canon hierarchy, overrides the canon found in lesser canon adaptations when it comes to discrepancies even as minor as dialogue. In any case, it won't happen again. Hanzo Hasashi 04:36, April 19, 2011 (UTC)
      • There is nothing contradictory about the scene. A "deck officer," who is neither Nemet ("tracking officer") nor M'kae ("aide"), is the one who suggests the Falcon went into hyperspace. Grand Moff Tranner Imperial Department of Military Research (Comlink) 19:42, April 19, 2011 (UTC)

Update needed Edit

The Star Wars Character Encyclopedia reveals that Needa is from Coruscant. Hanzo Hasashi 17:17, June 8, 2011 (UTC)
