GeekStep – Star Wars vs Dr Who vs Star Trek vs Indiana Jones
Deep in the archives of the University of New Brunswick’s library in Saint John, a famous movie script sat forgotten and collecting dust. It tells the tales of a galaxy far, far away — and no one knows how it got there.
Since February, Kristian Brown, a librarian, has been sifting through the library’s extensive science fiction collection.
With a big interest in the sci-fi genre, Brown was tasked to digitize the university’s collection of zines, pulp magazines and novels.
Just as Brown was coming to the end of his contract, he came across what appears to be an original shooting script for Star Wars.
The script is bound in blue paper, emblazoned with official Lucasfilm Industries stamps.
The date of the fourth edition revised script, is March 15, 1976, which is well ahead of the film’s 1977 theatrical release date.
Brown is less concerned about its monetary value, as he is of its worth as a piece of pop-culture treasure.
“No matter how many new things are made, it all basically came from this first thing. And it’s just good to look back at the origins of the entire thing and not forget, you know, what came first,” he said.
Aside from the Lucasfilm stamps, the titles also bear a curious look at how Star Wars evolved as it was written and distributed.
The first difference that pops-out, is the name of one of the most recognized characters in recent film history.

Imperial II–class Star Destroyer (Aynor)
Selling a slightly used Imperial II–class Star Destroyer.
Previously (slightly) owned by a navigator of a spice freighter, this
vessel has been sitting on my moisture farm and needs to be removed
before next year’s harvest. I just haven’t had time to give this classic
the attention it deserves and my loss is someone else’s gain!
1600 meters in length this bad boy has a maximum atmospheric speed of
975 km/h and an acceleration of >2,300 g. It’s got a Class 2
hyperdrive system still in working order with a backup Class 8. SFS

room to pack in a few extra AT-AT walkers, TIE starfighters,
prefabricated garrison bases, Lambda-class shuttles, yards of soil,
spool after spool of pipe, and jet skis.
This superstructure is perfect for long road trips with the family,
discovering new galaxies, picking up girls for dates, and general
destruction of your enemies. Have you ever seen what a Star Destroyer
can do to the surface of an unshielded planet? Stones run like water and
sand turns to glass. With just a little TLC, this baby can be good as
Brand new, this beauty of the skies runs at about 145,670,000 credits,
but due to some carbon scoring I can be flexible on the price.
Realistically, I just need it removed from my property, so all offers or
trades will be considered. Make me an offer, no mind tricks.

Now if I could just figure out how to tow this… anyone have Elon Musk’s number for SpaceX?
